The diseases most feared are those which are
inherited handed down from generation to gen
eration, anJ family to family. By far the most
destructive of these is Cancer, which finds the
greatest number of its victims among the children
and grand-children of those whose blood was tainted
with this dreadful malady. You may carry this poison in the blood for years, but
as the vital powers begin to wane a slight bruise or cut, wart or mole, sore or
pimple may develop into Cancer. Prom middle life to old age is the time when
the slumbering poison is most apt to break out, a sore or ulcer often degenerating
Into Cancer, and Tumors become more progressive and ulcerate through the skin
the sharp, shooting pains causing the most intense suffering. '
The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the usual
remedies fail, and the sore shows no sign of healing. The impurities that have
been accumulating in the system, perhaps for generations, cannot be eliminated nor
the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plasters. The proper treatment
is to purify and build up the blood, remove the cause, when the sore or ulcer heals.

Thrown from His Cab and Kilied,
The following is a most interesting
and, in one respect, pathetic tale:
Mr. JT. Pope, 42 Ferrar Road, Streat-
ham. England, said:
"Yes, poor chap, he is gone, dead
horse bolted, thrown off his seat on
his cab he was driving and killed
poor chap, and a good sort too, mate.
It was him, you see, who save me that
half bottle of St. Jacob's Oit that
made a new man of me. Twas like
this: me and Bowman ' were great
friends. Some gentleman had given
him a bottle of St.' Jacob's Oil which
had done him a lot of good; he only
used half the bottle, and remembering
that I had been a martyr to rheuma
tism and sciatica for'years, that I had
literally tried everything, had doctors,
and all without Denent, l became dis
couraged, and looked upon it that
there was no help for me. Well," said
Pope, "You may not believe me, for
it is a miracle, but before I had used
the contents of the half bottle of St.
Jacob's Oil which poor Bowman gave
me, I was a well man. There it is,
you see, after years of pain, after us
ing remedies, oils, embrocations,
horse liniments, and spent money on
doctors without getting any better, I
was completely cured in a few days.
I bought another bottle, thinking the
pain might come back, but It did not,
so I gave the bottle away to a friend
who had a lame back. I can't speak
too highly of this, wonderful pain
killer." . An Uitcalculating Hero.
