in the state who have applied for

The indoor decorations are particu
larly elaborate at the IIarjcr house,

I bequeath to my children Scrofula with all its
attendant horrors, humiliation and suffering. This is a
strange legacy to leave to posterity ; a heavy burden to
place upon the shoulders of the young.
This treacherous disease dwarfs the body and hinders
the growth and development of the faculties, and the
child born of blood poison, or scrofula-tainted parentage,
is poorly equipped for life's duties.
Scrofula is a disease with numerous and varied
symptoms ; enlarged glands or tumors about the neck
and armpits, catarrh of the head, weak eyes and dreadful
skin eruptions upon different parts of the body show the
presence of tubercular or scrofulous matter in the blood.
and stealthy disease entrenches itself securely in the system and attacks
the bones and tissues, destroys the red corpuscles of the blood, resulting in
white swelling, a pallid, waxy appearance of the skin, loss of strength and
a gradual wasting away of the body,
S. S. S. combines both purifying and tonic properties, and is guaran
lost properties to the blood and quickens the circulation, bringing a healthy
color to the skin and vigor to the weak and emaciated body.
