Chronic Ulcers are the result of a deeply polluted and foul blood supply.
;Tt blood is filled with impurities and germs which are being constantly
'fed into the place through the'circulation, until all the surrounding flesh
becomes diseased and the sore an obstinate and permanent trouble.
Every symptom of an old ulcer suggests pollution ; the discharge, tie red,
anry looking flesh, the inflammation and discoloration of surrounding parts,
all show that the ulcer is prevented from healing by the constant drainag
through it of impurities from the blood. This impure condition of the blood
may be hereditary, or it may be the remains of some constitutional disease,
or the effects of a long spell of sickness, leaving disease germs in the system,
or the absorption of the refuse of the body which has not been properlj
expelled through the natural channels. But whatever the cause, the blood is
so weakened and polluted that it does not properly nourish and stimulate
the place, and the sore cannot heal. Salves, plasters, lotions, etc., keep the
Bora or ulcer clean, relieve pain, and perhaps reduce inflammation, but can
i ne ver permanently heal them because they do not reach the blood. S. S. S.
goes down to the very fountain-head of the trouble, drives out all poisons
an i germs, builds up the weak, sluggish blood, gives energy and strength
to the system, and by sending a fresh, healthy stream of blood to the diseased
Ja: ts, allows the ulcer to heal naturally and permanently. Nothing reaches
nherited taints like S. S. S. It cleanses the circulation of every trace ol
hereditary disease or impurity, and those who have nursed and treated an old
8oi e for years will experience good results as soon as the system becomes
influenced by S. S. S. Book on Sores and Ulcers and medical advice free to

We were successful in every sense of the word. In fact, our success
has been so phenomenal that some say we are naturally lucky. Yes,
lucky in having the knowledge and skill to do all we claimed, but it took
years of hard work and study to get that knowledge and skill. It is easy
for us now; we could not make a botch of your case if we wanted to. We

others it gives wonderfully quick relief, it is always easy to take and
does not leave any bad after effects.
