No one can tell how soon these ArrCAnnJ AI rind I Ad will develop into Cancer of the worst type. So many people die from Cancer simply be MPRF P|MPI cause they do not know just what the disease is; IVll.nL nmrLLOi they naturally turn themselves over to the doctors, and are forced to submit to a cruel and dangerous operation?the only treatment which the doctors know for Cancer. The disease promptly returns, however, and is even more violent and destructive than before. Cancer is a deadly poison in the blood, and an operation, plaster, or other external treatment can have no effect whatever upon it. The cure must come from within?the last vestige of poison must be eradicated. Mr. Wm. Walpole, of "Walshtown, S. D., says: "A little blotch about the size of a pea came under my left eye. gradually growing larger, from which shooting pains at intervals ran in all directions. I became greatly alarmed and consulted a good doctor, who pronounced it Cancer, and advised that it be cut out, but this I could not con sent to. I read in my local paper of a cure effected by S S. S.. and decided to try it. It acted like a charm, the Cancer becoming at first irritated, and then discharging very freely. This gradually grew less and then discon tinued altogether, leaving a small scab which soon drop ped off. and now only a healthy little scar remains where what threatened to destroy my life once held full sway." Positively the only cure for Cancer is Swift's Specifio S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD ?because it is the only remedy which can go deep enough to reach the root of the disease and force it'out of the system permanently. A surgical operation docs not reach the blood?the real seat of the disease?because the Hood can not be cut away. Insist upon S. S. S.; nothing can take its place. S. S. S. cures also any case of Scrofula, Eczema. Rheumatism, Contagious Blood Poison, Ulcers, Sores, or any other form of blood disease.

The Non-Absorbent Bread and Pastry Board, In no part of the household realm has such advancement been made, as in the variety and production of convenient and labor saving appliances for the kitchen. A desirable BREAD AND PASTRY BOARD is one of the most important health and laboi' saving devices yet to be intioduced, as the ordinary wooden board is unhealthy, laborious and wasteful, and in every respect unsatisfactory. It there fore gives the agent great pleasure to of fer to the house-wives of this vicinity the patent Non-Absorbent Bread and Pas try Board, the triumph of simplicity and perfection, an ideal board on which to prepare bread, pastry and other food. It is hygienic and sanitary, having a highly polished metalic kneading and rolling surface, microbes nor discoao germs cannot enter. It is easily and quickly cleaned with a damp cloth, no scraping nor scouring being required, as dough will not adhere to it. No more flour is required than is necessary to tem per the dough, the good results of which are well known, while butter, lard and liquids can be mixed without being ab sorbed. No"bad odors from previous use nor soft fibrous surface to become rancid and foul. Being extremely light and at tractive, it is acknowledged by all to be superior to the heavy and expensive slabs frequently used, thus making it the only practical, non-absorbeut board ever offered for domestic use.
