Some poisons enter the blood from without, through the skin by absorption, or inoculation others from within, as when waste products accumulate in the system and ferment, allowing disease germs to develop and be taken into the circulation. While all blood troubles have one common origin, each has some peculiarity to distinguish it from the other. Contagious Blood Poison, Scrofula, Cancer, Rheumatism, Eczema and other blood diseases can be distinguished by a certain sore, ulcer, eruption or inflammation appearing on the skin. Every blood disease shows sooner or later on the outside and on the weakest part of the body, or where it finds the least resistance. Many mistake the sore or outward sign for the real disease, and attempt a cure by the use of salves, liniments and other external applications. Valuable time is lost and no permanent benefit derived from such treatment. BLOOD TROUBLES REOUIRE BLOOD nently eradicated— potash and arsenic, aoses—never cure, but do much harm by adding another poison to the already overburdened, diseased blood. 8 BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY, JUNE 1 1900. yAtoorutefy Pare No acid except that from the grape—pure, healthful cream of tartar—is used in Royal Baking Powder.
