CONTAGIOUS BLOOD. POISON They hide its repulsive form, and this serpent disease, stupefied by these drugs, lies dormant until the effects have worn off or treatment is discontinued, when it breaks down the mask and becomes as full of life and venom as ever. Mercury and Potash may dry up the sores and eruptions, but at the same time they drive the poison back into the blood and system, where it feeds upon the tender tissues, membranes and nerves, finally breaking out ia most disgusting sores and even destroying the flesh and bones. Mercury and Potash cannot accomplish a radical and permanent cure. They have a palliative butrnot curative effect upon this treacherous snaUe like disease. These drugs produce mercurial Rheumatism, destroy the teeth and corrode the membranes of the stomach and bowels, causing inflam mation and dyspepsia, nervousness and general derangement of the system.
