THE WILMINGTON MESSENGER, TUESDAY. MAY 15, 1900.
As the blood contains all the elements necessary to sustain life, it is impor
tant that it be kept free of all impurities, or it becomes a source of disease,
poisoning instead of nourishing the body, and loss of health is sure to follow.
Some poisons enter the blood from without, through the skin by absorption, or
inoculation ; others from within, as when waste products accumulate in the
system and ferment, allowing disease germs to develop and be taken into the
circulation. While all blood troubles haTe one common origin, each has some
peculiarity to aisunguisn it irom the other, vjomagious mooa roison, ovium.
Cancer, Rheumatism, Eczema and other blood diseases can be distinguished by (r
a. certain sore. ulcer. erur.tion nr inflammation aTrtsearincr on the skin. Every blood
peculiarity to distinguish it from the other.
disease shows sooner or later on the outside and on the weakest part of the body, or where it finds the least resistance
Many mistake the sore or outward sign for the real disease, and attempt a cure by the une of salves, liniments and other
external applications. Valuable time is lost and no permanent benefit derived from such treatment.
BLOOD TROUBLES REQUIRE BLOOD REMEDIES; the poison must be completely and perma
nently eradicated -the blood reinforced, purified and cleansed, or the disease goes deeper and saps the very life. Mercury,
potash and arsenic, the treatment usually prescribed in this class of diseases, are violent poisons, even when taken in small
doses never cure, but do much harm by adding another poison to the already overburdened, diseased blood.

smoke is rising from the crater and the
earth-shocks are violent.
The cable car service up Mount Ve

quence of the eruption. Four English
men attempted to ascend the moun
tain on foot, and, eluding the vigilance
of the carbineers who iorm a cordon
at a height beyond whiah the ascent
Is considered unsafe, they approached
the summit. Suddenly the volcano
belched forth a stream of lava and
large stones, which descended upon
the foolhardy tourists, who were res
cued in a terribly bruised and battered
condition and removed to the hospital
The Mexican people are described as
full of courtesy and not to be excelled
