T-4 s a good plan for every bather o know
something of the soap he uses. There is a
well-founded objection to using a floor-cleaning
soap upon the human body. Ivory Soap
is the bather's soap. It costs more than common

ONLY SERVE AS A MASK FOR.
CONTAGIOUS BLOOD POISON
They hide its repulsive form, and this serpent disease,,
stupefied by these drugs, lies dormant until the effects
have worn off or treatment is discontinued, when it
breaks down the mask and becomes as full of life and venom as ever.
Mercury and Potash may dry up the sores and eruptions, but at the same
time they drive the poison back into the blood and S3-stem, where it feeds
upon the tender tissues, membranes and ner;s, finally breaking out in
most disgusting sores and even destroying the flesh and bones.
Mercury and Potash cannot accomplish a radical and permanent cure.
They have a palliative but not curative effect upon this treacherous snake
like disease. These drugs produce mercurial Rheumatism, destroy the
teeth and corrode the membranes of the stomach and bowels, causing inflam
mation and dyspepsia, nervousness and general derangement of the system.
S. S. S. is a Specific for Contagious Blood Poison, and the only antidote
for the peculiar virus that spreads so quickly throughout the system,
corrupting the blood and infecting every organ and fibre of the body.
t. fc. C5. destroys the serpent, and eliminates
every atom of poison from the blood, it makes a
thorough and radical cure of the disease, and at the
same time builds up the general health. S. S. S.
contains no minerals of any kind, but is a purely
vegetable reraed- and we offer 1,000 for proof to the contrary.
