A SAFE HOME TREATMENT
In S. S. S. nature has provided a certain, safe, home cure for Contagious
Blood Poison. It is a medicine made entirely of roots and herbs of recog
nized blood-purifying value, and is the one medicine whicH is able to get
down to the root of the trouble and remove every particle of the virus, and
at the same time benefit and build upvthe system and general health. Jo
harmful effects ever follow its use, as is so often the case when strong min
eral medicines are used. As soon as the system gets under the influence of
S. S. S the disease begins to improve, and when the remedy has thoroughly
purified the blood and driven out every trace of the poison, no signs of the
trouble are ever seen again. The general' manifestations of Contagious
Blood Poison such as falling hair, copper-colored spots, ulcerated mouth and
throat, sores and ulcers, etc., are merely sj-mptoms of the poisoned condi
tion of the blood, and in most cases respond quickly to local treatment,
while S. S. S. is doing the necessary work of cleansing the blood. Our
"Home Treatment" book is of great assistance along this line. It is a
complete guide for treating the trouble, containing instructions for the
different stages of the disease, and also valuable suggestions about the local
treatment, that will be most helpful in effecting a cure. We will be glad
to send a copy of this book, free of charge, to any who desire it, and if
special, medical advice is wanted our physicians will take pleasure in sup
plying it without cost to the patient. If you are suffering with Conta
gious Blood Poison you can cure yofurself in the privacy of vour own home
by the use of S. S. S., an absolutely safe remedy.
