If an old sore existed simply because the flesh -was diseased at that
particular spot, it would be an easy matter to apply some remedy directly
to the place that would kill the germs; orthe diseased flesh might be
removed by a surgical operation and a euro offected. But the very fact
that old sores resist every form of local or external treatment, and oven
return after being cut away, shows that back of them is a morbid cause
which must be removed before a cure can result. Just as long as the
pollution continues in the blood, the ulcer remains an open cesspool for tho
deposit of impurities which the circulation throws off. S. S. S. cures Olu. Sores
by purifying tho blood. It removes every trace of impurity and tainftom
the circulation, and thus completely does away with tho cause. When
S. S. S. has cleansed the blood, tho sore begins to heal, and it israt a
surface cure, but the healing process begins at the bottom; soon the dis
charge ceases, the inflammation leaves, and the place fills in with firm,
healthy flesh. Under the purifying and tonic effects of S. S. S. the system
is built up, and those whose health has been impaired by the drain ana

board of commissioners of Valencia
county to secure the right of way for
the proposed Camino real through
this county, as surveyed by the state
engineer, will meet in Los Lunas and
make Its report to the comlssioners.
It is understood that this report will
advise the abandonment of the sur
veyed route in a number of places, and
a return to the present road, 'while in
others the new road will be recom
mended. The report will be made in
this way on account of some diffi
culties which have been met with in
securing the right of way as it was
originally surveyed. However. In the
main, the report will recommend the
new road. It is also understood that
there will be some opposition to this
form of & report within the committee,
so that it is possible that the board
of commissioners may order the com
mittee to continue the work, in which
case the report which will be offered
will not be accepted.
In addition to the Camino real mat
ter, the commissioners will have other
matters of importance for considera
tion. One is the county bridge at this
point. It is possible that some defin
