THE SOURCE OF ALL DISEASE
Every part of the body is dependent on the blood (or nourishment and
Strength. When this life stream is flowing through the system in a state of
purity and richness we are assured of perfect and uninterrupted health |
Cecause pure blood is nature's safe-guard against disease. When, however,
the body is fed on weak, impure or polluted blood, the system is deprived of
its strength, disease germs collect, and the trouble is manifested in various
ways. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashes and the different skin affections
show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased concuiiou as a result of too
much acid or the presence of some irritating humor. Sores and lilcers are
the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the blood, and Rheumatism, Ca
tarrh, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all deep-seated blood
disorders that will continue to grow worse as long as the poison remains.
These impurities and poisons find their way into the blood in various ways.
Often a sluggish, inactive condition of the system, and torpid state of the
avenues of bodily waste, leaver the refuse and waste matters to sour and,
form uric and other acids, which are taken up by the blood and distributed
throughout the circulation. Coming in contact with contagious diseases It
another cause for the poisoning of the blood ; we also breathe the perms and
microbes of Malaria into our lungs, and when these get into the blood in
Sufficient quantity it becomes a cairier of disease instead of health. Som»
are so unfortunate as to inherit bod blood, perhaps the dregs of some old
constitutional disease of ancestors is handed down to them and they are
constantly annoyed and troubled with it. Bad blood is the source of ail dis
ease, and until this vital fluid is cleansed and purified the body is sure to
suffer in some way. For blood troubles of any character S. S. S. is the best
remedy ever discovered. It goes down into the circulation and removes any
and all poisons, supplies the healthful properties it needs, and completely

At thsit moment perhaps I'eary alont

that was uucrossable, they were doom

When they came to the lead, about 1

began purchasing more shares. He
had his agent find out just bow much
slock he would need to have an equal
Interest with the Ryan crowd. Then
he acquired all the shareß he needed.
"His next move was to force them
into an agreement that for every
American or European employed by
Ryan there must be a Belgian em

When an eminent authority an
nounced In the Scranton, Pa., Times
that he had found a new way to treat
that dread American disease, Rheuma
tism, with Just common, every-day
drugs found in any drug store, the
physicians were slow Indeed to attach
much importance to his claims. This
was only a few months ago. Today
nearly every newspaper in the coun
try, even the metropolitan dallies, are
announcing it and the splendid results
achieved. It Is so simple that any one
can prepare it at home at small cost.
It is made up as follows: Get from
any good druggist Fluid Extract Dan
delion, one-half ounce; Compound Kar
gon, one ounce; Compound Syrup Sar
saparilla, three ounces. Mix by shak
ing in a bottle and take in teaspoon
ful doses after each meal and at bed
time. These are all simple Ingredients,
making an absolutely harmless home
remedy at little cost.
Rheumatism, as every one knows, is
a symptom of deranged kidneys. It is
a condition produced by the failure of
the kidneys to properly filter or strain
from the blood the uric acid and other
matter which, If not eradicated, either
In the urine or through the Bkin pores,
