of his office in the McKinnie block. A
few minutes later Dr. Morgan drove
down to his office in the Kimball block
but tied his horse in front of the Mc

home and found his horse gone, and
then spread the alarm of its theft
When Dr. Huntington reached home at
noon he was so delighted with the
horse he had been driving that he in
sisted upon his wife keeping it tor a
drive in the afternoon, but when she

other than Dr. Morgan's horse. Then
by telephone the mix-up was soon

Dear Sirs : I bad a friend who had a bad case of Con
tagious Blood Poison and was In a terrible condition. He
tried all the medicines be could bear of, but nothing did
bim any good. He went to Hot Springs but It 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 it for
awhile the. sores all healed, his hair stopped falling out,
and. continuing with it, he soon found himself cured en
tirely of this hideous disease. JOHN LESLIE,
Jiockford, 111. 719 W. State St.
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 60-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 advice of a friend I then took 8. B. 8. and
began to improve. I continued the medicine, and it cured
me completely. W. U. NEWMAN.
Hamlet, N. C.
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 bod' is beyond the reach of this powerful poison. No matter how pure
the blood may be, when the virus of Contagious Blood Poison enters, the entire circulation
becomes corrupted, the humiliating symptoms begin to appear, and the sufferer finds himself
diseased from head to foot with the vilest and most destructive of all poisons. Usually
the first symptom is a small sore or ulcer, so insignificant that it rarely ever excites
suspicion, out m a snort winie tne s.kiu
breaks out in 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 aii' limit to the rava
ges of Contagious Blood Poison; if it is not
driven from the blood it affects the nerves,
attacks the bones, and in extreme cases
causes tumors to form on the brain, pro
ducing insanity and death. No other dis
ease is so highly contagious; man' 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 accompany 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, and 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 restored to health, b. b. b. is not
an 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 aud barks, and does not in
iure 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.
