Cancer of the Nose.
In 1875 a son appeared on my nose, and
grew rapidly. As my father had cancer,
and my hiiBband died of it, I became alarm
ed, and consulted my physician. His treat
ment did no good, and toe sore grow larger
r nd worse In every wav.until I had conclml-
1 tlii! I was to die from its effects. I was
persuaded to tnke 8. 8. S., and a few bottles
cured me. Tins wnB after all the doctors and
other medicines had failed, I have had no
return oi the cancer.
