THE STORE BEAUTIFUI
of Oreaf Danger
May be Means of Absorbing
Disease Germs in Most
The rese&rrSi laboratory of The Swift
Specific Co. has collected a vast amount
of information regarding the spread of
blood diseases. In thousands of instances
the most virulent types have been the re
sult of coming in contact with disease
germs in public places, and the apparent
ly insignificant pimple has been tho
cause. It spreads with astonishing ra
pidity, often infecting- the entire system
in a few days.
It is fortunate, however, that there i3
a remedy to cope quickly and thoroughly
with such a condition, and thanks to tho
energy of Its producers the famous
S. S. S. may not be had at almost any
drug store In tho civilized world.
This preparation stands alone among
specific remedies as a blood purifier. It
Is somewhat revolutionary in Its compo
sition, since it accomplishes all that was
ever claimed for mercury, iodides, arsenic
and ether destructive mineral drugs, and
yet it is absolutely a purely vegetable
product. There are more cases of artic
ular rheumatism, locomotor ataxia, pa
rests, neuritis and similar diseases result
ant from the use of minerals than from
disease germs direct. These facts are
brought out in a highly Interesting book
compiled by the medical department of
The Swift Specific Co.. 127 Swift BMg.,,
Atlanta, Ga. It is mailed free, together
with a special letter of advice to aH who
are struggling with a Mood disease.
Get a $1.00 bottle of S. S. S. to-day of
your druggist. It will surprise you with
Its wonderful action, in the blood.
