OF ( Diseases which afflict
EVEIIY mankind are duo to dis
FOURV J orders of the blood. In
fact, if the vital fluid is kept in good
condition, the tendency to any dis
ease is lessened by three-fourths. A
harmless vegetable remedy, which
cleanses the blood, should be taken
occassionally by every one. In the
young, it assists in the development
of the body and mind. In the adult,
it helps nature to keep up the equili
brium of strength, which is taxed by
the labor and cares of life. To the
old and those with the infirmities of
age, it is invaluable for its tonic and
strengthening powers, to prevent dis
eases which are often fatal to old
people. This remedy is Swift's
Specific (S. 8. S.) It clears out all
the germs and poison, and builds up
the human organism. We will mail
free a valuable book to all applicants.
