everything. In each department of household work, it is
unrivaled. Nothing polishes silver, glass, or

M U A UNIVERSAL
fil BLOOD DISEASE
Catarrh is usually worse in Winter, because of the cold, damp and.
suddenly changing climate. Colds are contracted, and neglected and as the
secretions from the different inflamed membranes are absorbed into the blood
the unpleasant symptoms of the disease commence. The nostrils are
stopped up and a constant dropping oi mucous back; into the throat Keeps
tip a continual hawking and spitting. The patient has dull headaches.
ringing noises in the ears, and olten slight lever and a depressed, nalt-siclc
feeling accompanies the disease. The blood becomes so fully charged with
catarrhal matter that stomach troubles are brought on, the kidneys and
bladder are affected, and if the blood is not purified of the poison the lungs
become diseased because of the constant passage of impure blood through
them. Catarrh cannot be cured with washes, sprays, inhalations and such
treatment ; these cannot reach the poison-laden blood where the real cause is
located, and can only give temporary relief
and comfort. A disease which affects the
entire blood supply as does Catarrh, must
be treated with a blood purifier. S. S. S.
is the best remedy for Catarrh, which has
grown to be a universal disease. It goes to
the bottom of the trouble, rids the blood of
the catarrhal matter, reinvigorates the cir
culation, and cures this disgusting disease permanently. When S. S. S. has
purified the blood every part of the system receives a supply of fresh,
healthy blood ; then the inflamed membranes heal and every symptom of
Catarrh passes away. Write for our book containing information about
Catarrh, and ask for any medical advice vou desire. No charge is made for
