For more tlian forty years S. S. S. has worn tlie crown of
public approval and lias been recognized as the King of Blood
Purifiers. It has demonstrated its ability to CURB in
thousands upon thousands of cases of blood and skin diseases
until it is regarded today as the most reliable and safest of all
Pure blood means strong, vigorous bodies, well nourished
systems, steady nerves, and all the machinery of life workinef in
harmony with nature thus insuring perfect health. Impure or diseased blood means the
opposite of all this; any impurity, humor or poison in this vital fluid acts injuriously on
the system and affects the general health. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashes and the
various skin affections show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased condition, as the
result of too much acid or the presence of some irritating humor. Chronic Sores and
Ulcers are the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the blood, while Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all deep-seated blood disorders that continue to
grow worse as long as the poisons which produce them remain in the blood.
' All blood troubles are not acquired.
Through the blood disease germs are trans
mitted from one generation to another. Par
ents hand down a tainted circulation to their
children, and we see its effects manifested in
various ways. The skin has a wax', pallid
appearance, the eyes are often weak, glands
of the neck enlarged, and, as the taint has
been m the blood since birth, the entire health
is usually affected, aud the sj'steni weakened
from want of nourishing, health-giving blood.
In all blood troubles S. S. S. has proven itseit The King of Blood Purifiers.'9
It goes down into the circulation and removes all poisons, humors, waste or foreign matter,
and makes this life-stream pure and health-sustaining. Nothing reaches inherited blood
troubles like fc. S. o.; it removes every particle of the tamt, purifies aud strengthens the
weak, deteriorated blood, supplies it with the healthful properties it needs and establishes
the foundation for good health. As a tonic
S. S. S. has no equal, and it will be found es
pecially bracing to weak, anaemic persons.
One of the greatest points in favor of S. S. S.
is that it is purely vegetable, made from nature's
healing, cleansing, health-producing roots, herbs
and barks. It is the one medicine that may be
taken with absolute safety by the youngest
child or the oldest member of the faniilj-.
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Skin
Diseases, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, aud all other blood troubles are cured perma
nently by S.S. S., and so thorough is the cleansing of the blood that no trace of the disease
is left to break out in future years, or to be transmitted to offspring. If j-our blood is out
of order begin the use of S. S. S., The King of Blood Purifiers, aud restore this vital fluid
to its normal healthy condition, and enjoy the blessing of good health. Book on the blood
and any special medical advice desired will be furnished free of charge to all who write.

THOROUGHLY TESTED IN" HER FAMILY.
S. S. S. has been used extensively in our family.
Riven to both young and old. and always with the best
results. It thoroughly cleanses the blood of all impur

gives appetite, strength and energy. We have given
it to our children, as intimated, and found it to-be non
injurious to the system and always capable of purify
ing the blood and restoring health. I unhesitatingly
recommend it to all in need of a blood medicine. It is
superior to everything else as a cure for blood diseases
