The Medical Profession.
The attitude of the medical' profit
sion toward what is known as ."pat
ent medicines" is not at all unreason
able. Thousands of these nostrums
are offered to the public every year.
Some of them are dangerous and
most of them are futile. Swift's Spe
cific (S. S. S.) we are all glad to say,
is not classed among the nostrums
It has overcome the wholesome prej
udices of physicians in all parts of
the cpuntry, and some of the strong
est testimonials in its Denau come
from medical men who have used it
in their practice, and who do not
hesitatate to endorse its wonderfu
results. This is extremely gratify
ing, but by no means astonishing, for
every claim that is put forward in
behalf of S. S. S. is based on a series
of actual experiments extended over
a long period of time.
