For years and years before our boys In blue Invaded Cuba there were two candlesticks on the altar In the cbapel of old Cabanas, one of the outer forts protecting the city of Havana.

When a patriot was ordered to be shot he was allowed time to go to the little chapel In the fort and say his prayers before the altar, after which he was taken out and executed.

They are the weapons that have been used for generations to fight old Rheumatism, and are about as effective in the battle with this giant disease as the blunderbuss of our forefathers would be in modern warfare. Rheumatism is caused bv an acid, sour condition of the blood. It is filled with acrid, irritating matter that settlea in the joints, muscles and nerves, and liniments and oils nor nothing else applied externally can dislodge these gritty, corroding particles. They were deposited there by the blood and can be reached only through the blood. Rubbing with liniments sometimes relieve temporarily the aches and pains, but these are only symptoms which are liable to return with every change of the weather ; the real disease lies deeper, the blood and system are infected. Rheumatism cannot be radically and permanently cured until the blood has been purified, and no remedy does this so thoroughly and promptly as S. S. S. It neutralizes the acids and sends a stream of rich, strong blood to the affected parts, which dissolves and washes out all foreign materials, and the sufferer obtains happy relief from the torturing pains.
