the blood no matter what the
cause So wiselydid Mr C C

men and intelligent farmers of
Alcora county Miss He writes
the following pointed testimony of
his experience

body accompanied by a very sore
throat I gave him some S S S
which I happened to have When
the family physician came and
learned what I was givine the
child he told me to continue it as
it was the best thing the baby
could take The doctor proved
wise for in a short while the erup
