additional building nearly as large as

will be quite extensive, necessitating

The very name, Contagious Blood Poison, suggests contamination and dread. - It is the
worst disease the world has ever known; responsible for more unhappiness and sorrow than
all others combined. Nobody knows anything about the origin of this loathsome trouble,
but as far back as history goes it has been regarded the greatest curse of mankind.
No part of the body is be3'ond the reach of this powerful poison. No matter how pure
the blood may be, when the virus of Contagious Blood Poison euters, the entire circulation
becomes corrupted, the humiliating symptoms begiu to appear, and the sufferer finds himself
diseased from head to foot with the vilest aud most destructive of all poisons. Usually
the first symptom is a small sore or ulcer, so insignificant that it rarely ever excites
susoicion. but in a short while the skin
breaks out iu a red rash, the glands of the
groin swell, the throat and mouth ulcerate,
the hair and eye-brows come out, and often
the body is covered with copper-colored
spots, pustular eruptions and sores.
There is hardly any limit to the rava
ges of Contagious Blood Poison; if it is not
driven from the blood it affects the nerves,
Dear Sirs : I had a friend who had a bad case of Con
tagious Blood Poison and was In a terrible condition. He
tried all the medicines he could hear of. but nothing did
him any good. He went to Hot Springs but tt was like
the other treatments he had used, and he was In despair
of a cure when he heard of S. S. 8. After taking u for
awhile the sores all healed, his hair stopped falling out,
and. continuing with it. he 600a found himself cured en
tirely of this hideous disease. JOHN LESLIE. .

attacks the bones, and in extreme cases
I was afflicted with Blood Poison, and the; best doc
tors did me no good, though I took their treatment faith
fully. In fact I seemed to get worse all the while. I took
almost every so-called blood remedy, but they did not
seem to reach the disease, and had no effect whatever, I
was disheartened, for it seemed that I would never be
cured. At the advioe of a friend I then took S. 8. S. and
began to improve. I continued the medicine, and it cured
me completely. W. R. NEWMAN.

causes tumors to form on the brain, pro
ducing insanity and death. No other dis
ease is so highly contagious; many an inno
cent person has become infected by using the
same toilet articles, handling the clothing, by
a friendly handshake or the kiss of affection
from one . afflicted. But no matter how the disease is contracted, the sufferer feels the
humiliation and degradation that accompa'' the vile disorder.
Mercury and Potash are commonly used in the treatment of Contagious Blood Poison.
but these minerals cannot cure the disease they merely mask it in the system. All ex
ternal evidences may disappear for awhile, but the treacherous poison is at work on the internal
members and tissues, and when these minerals are left off the disease returns worse than
before, because the entire system has been weakened aud damaged by the strong action of the
Mercury and Potash. There is but one certain, reliable cure for Contagious Blood Poison,
and that is S. S. S., the great vegetable blood purifier. It attacks the disease in the right
way by going down into the blood, neutralizing and forcing out every particle of the poison.
It makes the blood pure and rich, strengthens the different parts of the body, tones up the
system, aud cures this humiliating and destructive disorder permanently.
The improvement commences as soon as the patient gets under the influence of S. S. S.
and continues until every vestige of the poison is driven from the blood and the sufferer
is completely restorea to neaitu. t. o. o. is noi
au experiment ; it is a success. It has cured
thousands of cases of Contagious Blood Poison,
many of which had given the Mercury and
Potash treatment, Hot Springs, etc., a thor
ough trial, and had almost despaired of ever
being well again. S. S. S. is made entirely
of roots, herbs and barks, and does not in
jure the system in the least. We offer a
reward of $1,000 for proof that it contains a particle of mineral of any kind. If you
are suffering with this despicable and debasing disease, get it out of your blood with S. S. S.
before it does further damage. We will gladly send our book with instructions for self-
treatment and any medical advice, without charge, to all who write.

SUCCUMBED TO WILES OF
WIFE WHOM HE DESERTED
Peorian Who Fled from Justice
That City Arrested in Rock
Peoria Star: It was an unfortunate
moment for Frank Englehart when he
succumbed for a brief space of time
to the charms of his own wife, for he
speedily discovered himself under ar
rest charged with abandoning that
same wife and at this blessed moment
finds himself in the Peoria workhouse
with a $30 fine hanging over his head.
Ingratitude is another charge against
the man and this cost him something
in added Punishment. .
The developments in the case came
out slowly. Some time since a war
rant was issued for the arrest of En
glehart for failure to support his wife.
He learned of it and visited the office
of the state's attorney. He said that
he had had trouble with his wife; that
he was willing to support her and that
if they would let him go that he would
appear when he was wanted and would
fix the matter up.
Alas, for Englehart and the general
propensity of mankind for lying. He
left the olllce of the state's attorney
and fled to Iowa. This is where the
Circe business of this little drama
comes in. The wife learned of liU
whereabouts, but that is about all she
got out of him. So she visited Rock
Island, having previously taken the
precaution to have a warrant for hts
arrest In the hands of the police of
that town. Remembering the days of
his courtship Englehart listened to the
blandishments of his wife and made a
visit to Rock Island. He was gobbled
by the police and yesterday when he
took a plea of guilty in the county
court he got six months and $30 and
