Experience is a dear teacher, as those who pin their faith to Mercury find out sooner or later. This power. ful poison combined with Potash, is the treatment gen erally prescribed for Contagious Blood Poison, but falure and disappointment is the invariable result. These min. erals drive in the sores and eruptions, and apparently the disease is gone and the patient believes the cure perma nent, but soon learns better when the old symptoms return almost as soon as the treatment is left off. You must either keep the system saturated with mercury or endure the tortures of sore mouth, ulcerated throat and the mortification that one naturally feels when the body is covered with disgusting sores, rashes, copper-colored splotches and other aggravating symptoms of this vile disease. Mercury and Potash are poor crutches, and their use eventually breaks down the constitution, ruins the digestion and cause the bones to decay. ___ 8. 8. 8., a guaranteed purely vegetable remedy, is the only antidote for Contagious Blood Poison. It de. stroys every atom of the deadly virus, overcomes the bad effects of the mercury and cleanses the blood and s stem so thoroughly that never after are any signs of the disease seen. Nor is the taint ever transmitted to others. We will send free our book on Contagious Blood Poison, which is inter. Weting and contains full directions for treating yourself at home.

WILLING TO PAY FOR WISDOM True Christians Do Not Hesitate In Giving Up Material Things. Rev. J. R.
