No remedy that does not entirely remove the cause of Catarrh from the
blood will ever make a permanent cure of the trouble. Just aa long as the
circulation remains contaminated with the impurities and catarrhal matters
which produce the trouble, the mucous membranes or inner linings of the
body will be kept in a state of irritation and disease. Sprays, lotions and
other local applications will sometimes temporarily relieve the tight, full
feeling in the bead, buzzing noises in the ears, uncomfortable, stuffy feeling
of the nostrils, and help to loosen the mucus In the throat; but Catarrh is a
constitutional blood disorder and until it has been entirely driven from the
system there can be no permanent cure. S. S. S. cures Catarrh by removing
the cause from the blood. It attacks the disease at its head and by thor
oughly purifying and cleansing the circulation, and ridding it of every par
ticle of impurity, and at the same time enriching the blood, allows the
inflamed and irritated membranes to heal, improves the general health, and
stops every disagreeable symptom. S. S. S. reaches down to the very
bottom and leaves no trace of the disease in. the system. Book on Catarrh
