session this afternoon, for the purpose
inspecting the new bridge over the

HARPER HOUSE PHARMACY.
A SAFE MD RELIABLE BLOOD PURIFIER
In the time of our forefathers the forests and fields were the only labor
atories from which they could procure their medicines. - They searched out
and compounded the different roots, herbs and barks into remedies, many of
which have been handed down to succeeding generations, and continuously
used with satisfactory results. Among the very best of these old time prep
arations is S. S. S., a medicine made entirely from roots, herbs and barks,
in such combination as to make it the greatest of all blood purifiers. This
absolute vegetable purity of S. S. S. makes it the one medicine that may be
used without fear of harmful results in any way. Most blood medicines on
the market contain mercury, potash, or some other strong mineral. These
act with bad effect on the system, upsetting the stomach, interfering with
the digestion, affecting the bowels, and when used for a prolonged period of
time often cause salivation. No such effects ever result from the use of
S. S. S., and it may be taken by children as safely as by older people. For
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Malaria, Scrofula, Skin Diseases,
and all other troubles caused by impure or poisoned blood, S. S. S. is a per
fect remedy. It goes down into the circulation and removes all poisons,
impurities, humors or unhealthy matter, and makes the blood pure and rich.
It eliminates every particle of the taint of inherited blood trouble, purifies and
strengthens the weak, deteriorated blood, and establishes the foundation
for good health. S. S. S. is Nature's Blood Purifier, and its many years of
successful service, with a steadily increasing demand for it, is the best evi
dence of its value in all blood troubles. Book on the blood and any medical
advice free of charge. JHE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CA.
