To one already enfeebled by disease, boils seem to come with more freauencv. causing the interest pain and greatest danger to the already weak and debilitated sufferer. All skin eruptions, from the sometimes fatal car buncle to the spiteful little cat-boil, are caused by bad blood, and the only way to aoid or get permanently rid of them is to purify and build up the deteriorated, polluted blood, and counteract the humors and poisons; and nothing will do this so quickly and thoroughly as S. S. S., which is the acknowledged king of blood purifiers and great est of all tonics. Where the blood has become impoverished and is poor and thin, no medicine acts so promptly in building up and restor ing its richness, purity and strength. The time to cure Allegheny.
