leal Danger When the Disease
Reaches These Vital
First it's a bad cold that be
:omes stubborn and hangs on un
il it develops into annoying Ca
arrh?and too many cases neg
ected or improperly treated until
he lungs are endangered. In this
way many a seriously complicated
rase has had its origin.
Catarrh is a great deal more
lian an annoying disease that
Jogs up the nose and throat and
.tops up the air passages until you
an breathe only with the greatest
ifficulty. There is a more serious
jhase of the disease that should
jot be overlooked, for when the
disease is allowed to reach down
nto the lungs, everyone realizes
hat there is real danger ahead.
This is why we cannot advise
:oo strongly against the folly of
elying upon such makeshift treat
ment as sprays, douches, atomiz
:rs. jellies, lotions, or other local
ipplications, which at best can do
lothing but afford some slight tem
xjrary relief from the clogged-up
iccumulations of irritated mucus.
Catarrh comes from a disease
germ that finds lodgment in the
jlood, and makes itself manifest
>y spreading its attack of poison
mjs irritation to the delicate lin
ngs of the nose, throat and air
>astages. These become stopped
ip by the mflamination of 'the
mucous membranes, making it dif
ficult for you to breathe, and you
are constantly hawking and spit
ting in an effort to clear the
clogged-up nostrils and get relief.
Even if you loosen up these accu
mulations by the use of local treat
ment, they continue to reappear,
and unless you direct the treatment
to the foundation of the disease
you will have to use sprays and
atomizers the balance of your life.
You must realize that your blood
is loaded down with catarrh germs,
and these germs must be removed
from your blood before you can
expect real, rational relief from
the disease. And, of course, you
know that you cannot reach these
germs in your blood with sprays
and douches. When you have
cleansed the blood of impurities
and the catarrhal poisons which
cause the disease, then you will be
truly relieved of Catarrh, with its
disagreeable dripping in the throat,
hawking and spitting, sores in the
nostrils, and offensive bad breath.
Experience has proven that
S. S. S. is the best remedy for
Catarrh, because it is a fine blood
remedy that frees the blood of all
disease germs. S. S. S. will cleanse
your blood of the cause of Ca
tarrh, and give real relief. It has
been in constant use for more than
fifty years, and is sold by all drug
gists. Buy a bottle today and lose
no further time in getting on the
right treatment.
If you wish special advice re
garding your own case, it will be
furnished free. Address Chief Med
