BLOOD POISON « * In Worst Form Cured by The Peerless ALKANO King of the Blood. “Alkano Remedy Co., Kansas City, Mo. Gentlemen- Three years ago J contracted contagious blood poison, took treatment from our best doctors, have taken the mercury and potash treatment and others. After all of this 140 deep sores came on my body, arms, legs and face. My mouth and throat were so sore 1 could not eat nor drink. 1 had not eaten one bite for six days and was nearly dead when the agent for Alkano called to see me. I took a bottle from him, not expect ing to be benefited, and to my sur prise, in a few days my month and throat were healed, and I could cat and drink. I have now taken Alkano three weeks and the 140 deep sores are all healed tip. 1 have gained 47 pounds in weight; rheumatism all gone; sleep well; can eat six times a day, 1 had stomach trouble when 1 contracted this disease. Alkano has cured that as well as other troubles. “Alkano is a sure blood renovator. Five dollars is cheap for this great remedy. I would advise anyone who has blood troubles to try it. Yours very truly, “BEN F. SPRUlLu" It Is now well recognised that the treatments ordinarily given for this disease, based on powerful minerals, are very harmful to the system. They have a tendency to deaden the nerve and muscular tissue, especially the former. The result is apt to show up in later years in the form ol paralysis, locomotor ataxia, rheumatism, etc. Even blindness sometimes results. This may not occur for many years, but in all cases where these drugs have been taken, the danger always exists. These afflictions, as well as others long considered as after effects of the disease, are now admitted to re sult not from the disease Itself, but from these drugs. Then why take these drugs when Alkano is even more certain of curing the disease than they, and never has any evil after effects, but always leaves the system thoroughly cleansed and restored. Alkano enree ail forms of diseases and disorders of the blood. IT your druggist deos not have Al kano ou hand, write Alkano Remedy Co., Kansas City, Mo. DINED BALL MAGNATES. Mr. and Mrs. J. R.
