A BAD SORE OJT HIS FACE. '
I was afflicted with a sore on my fao of four years
standing. It was a small pimple at first but it grad
ually grew larger and worse in every way until I
became alarmed about it and consulted several physi
oians. They all treated me but the sore continued to
grow worse. I saw S. S. S. advertised and commenoed
its use and after taking it awhile I was completely
cured. My blood is now pure and healthy from th
effect of S. S. S., and there has not been any sign of the
sore since S. S. R. cured it.

BY IMPURITIES IN THE BLOOD -
An old sore or ulcer is only a symptom, an outlet for the impurities and poisons
which arc circulating in the blood, and as long as this vital fluid remains in this impure
and contaminated state the place will never heal. It may scab over and appear to be
getting well, but a fresh outpouring of diseased matter from the blood starts it again, and
thus it goes on, sometimes for years, continually growing worse, and slowly sapping
away the strength and vitality of the sufferer.
Th ere are many ways by which the blood may become contaminated and poisoned.
A long spell of fever, or other sickness, breeds disease germs in the system, the failure of
nature's eliminative members to remove the waste and refuse matter of the body, the exces
sive use of minerals in certain diseases, all infect the blood with morbid matter and germs,
which sooner or later manifest their presence by a sore or ulcer which refuses to heal
under the ordinary treatment of salves.
washes, lotions, powders, etc. A boil, blister,
pimple, burn or even a slight scratch, often
develops into a festering or discharging
ulcer if the system is run down or the blood
depreciated from any cause.
. Persons with an inherited blood taint
are very apt to be afflicted with sores and
ulcers. Being born with au unhealthy blood
supply, the different parts of the body are
never fully nourished, and when middle life is reached or passed and the vigor and strength
of the system begins to weaken and wane, the tissues in some weak point break down and
a chronic sore or ulcer is formed, and kept open by the constant drainage of impure matter
from the blood. How aggravating and stubborn an old sore can be is best known by those
who have nursed and treated one for years, applying salves, washes, powders, etc., with no
good results. The place remains and continues to grow worse by eating deeper into the
surrounding flesh, festering, discharging, sometimes throbbing with pain, and gradually
undermining the constitution by its unhealthy action on the system.
It is a great mistake to expect to cure these tlaces with external atmlications. True
this treatment assists in keeping the parts clean, and are beneficial in this way, but do not
reach the real trouble which is in the blood. The practice of cutting out the diseased parts
and even scraping the bone beneath, is often resorted to, but these severe measures seldom
do any permanent good. The sore may be re
moved, and for a time heal
poison that produced it the first time is still in the
blood, because The Blood Cannot Bo Cut A way,
and The Sore Villi Return,
The ouly treatment that can do any real
good is a competent blood purifier one that goes
to the very bottom of the trouble and removes the
cause, and for this ptifpose nothing has ever been
found to ennal S J-v 5v Tt p-oes down into trip
circulation, drives out all poison and morbid matter, reduces the inflammation, and by
sending pure, rich blood to the diseased parts, instead of feeding them with impurities,
allows the sore to heal naturally and permanently. Not only does S. S. S. purify the blood
of all poisons and germs, but builds it up from its weakened and impoverished state, making
it strong and healthy and able to supply every part of the body with sufficient and proper
nourishment to keep it in perfect health. If you have a sore that is slow in healing, do not
depend upon external applications alone, nor experiment with unknown medicines, but begin
the use of C. S. vS., ?nd by removing every vestige of the cause, cure the trouble perma
nently. Special book on Sores aud Ulcers and any medical advice desired sent free to all
