As every part of the body is dependent on the blood for nourishineut

Impurities and poisons. As long as it remains uncontaminated we are for
tified against disease and health is assured ; but any hunfor or impurity acts
Injuriously on the system and affects the generalhealth, or culminates in
some special blood disease. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashes and the
different skin affections show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased
condition as a result of too much acid, or the presence of some irritating
humor. Sores and Ulcers are the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the
blood, and Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc.,
are all deep-seated blood diseases that continue to grow worse as long as the
impurity or poison remains in the circulation. Some persons are born with
an hereditary taint in the blood and we see the effect manifested in various
ways. The skin has a pallid, waxy appearance, the eyes are weak, gland3
in the neck often enlarged and usually the body is not fully developed or
strong, because it has always been fed on weak, impure blood. In all blood
troubles S. S. S. has proved itself a perfect remedy. It goes down yito the
circulation and removes all poisons, humors, waste or foreign matter, and
makes this stream of life pure and health-sustaining. Nothing reaches
inherited blood troubles like S. S. S.; it removes every particle of taint,
purifies and strengthens the weak, deteriorated blood, supplies it with the
healthful properties it needs and establishes the foundation for good health.
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Sores and Ulcers, Skin Diseases, Contagious
Blood Poison and all blood diseases and disorders are cured permanently
by S. S. S. It is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks, and is the King
of all blood purifiers. Book on the blood and any medical advice desired
