CONTAGIOUS BLOOD POISON
NO LIMIT TO ITS POWERS FOR EVIL
Contagious Blood Poison has brought more suffering, misery and humila-
tion into the world than all other diseases combined; there is hardly any
lim it to its powers for evil. It is the blackest and vilest of all disorders,
wrecking the lives of those unfortunate enough to contract it and often being
transmitted to innocent offspring, a blighting legacy of suffering and shame.
So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract it
by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing o f one in whose
blood the treacherous virus has taken root. Not only is it a powerful poison
but a very deceptive one. Only those who have learned by bitter experience
know by the little sore or ulcer, which usually makes its appearance first, of
the suffering which is to follow. It comes in the form of ulcerated mouth
and throat, unsightly copper colored spots, swollen glands in the groin,
falling hair, offensive sores and tileers on the body, and in severe cases the
finger nails drop off, the bones become diseased, the nervous system is shat
tered and the sufferer becomes an object o f pity to his fellow man. Especi
ally is the treacherous nature o f Contagious Blood Poison, shown when the
infected person endeavors to combat the poison with mercury and potash.
These minerals w ill drive away all outward symptoms of the troubles for
a while, and the victim is deceived into the belief that he is cured. When,
however, the treatment is left off he finds that the poison has only been driven
deeper into the blood and the disease reappears, and usually in worse form
because these strong minerals have not only failed to remove the virus from
the blood hut have weakened the entire system because of their destructive
action. S. S. S. is she only real and certain cure for Contagious Blood Poi
son. It is made of a combination of healing blood-purifying roots, herbs
and barks, the best in Nature’s great laboratory o f forest and field. We
offer a reward o f ft.ooo for proof that S. S. S. contains a particle of mineral
in any form. S. S. S. goes down to the
very bottom o f the trouble and by cleansing
the blood o f every particle of the virus and
adding rich, healthful qualities to this vital
fluid, forever cures this powerful disorder.
So thoroughly does S. S. S. cleanse the
circulation that no signs of the disease are
ever seen again, and offspring is protected.
W rite for our special book on Contagious Blood Poison, which fully e x
plains the different stages of the trouble, and outlines a complete home treat
