FOE OF LEGISLA- He was the leader of the fight on the Humphrev

Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid, art irritating, inflammatory
accumulation, which gets into the circulation because of weak kidneys,
constipation, indigestion, and other physical irregularities which are usually
considered of no importance. Nothing applied externally can ever reach
the seat of this trouble; the most such treatment can do id soothe the pain3
temporarily; while potash and other mineral medicines really add to the
acidity of the blood, and this fluid therefore continually grows moro acrid
and vitiated. Then instead of nourishing the Uiiftrcnt muscles and joints,
keeping them in a normally supple and elastic condition, it gradually hardens
and stiffens them by drying up the natural oils and fluids. Rheumatism can
never be cured until the blood i3 purified. S. 3. S. thoroughly cleanses and
-enovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and driving the cause
from the system. It strengthens and invigoratos the blood so that instead
of a sour, weak stream, dspositini? acrid and painful corrosive matter in
the muscle3. joints and bone3, it nourishes the entire body with pure, rich,
blood and permanently cures Ithoumatism. S. S. S. contains no potash,
alkali or other harmful mineral, but Is made entirely of roots, herbs and
barks of great purifying and tonic properties. Book on Rheumatism and
