Now i3 the time to begin the work of cleansing and building up the oioou ana eircngiacning me weajc places in your constitution. During the cold winter months we are compelled to live indoors and breathe the impure air of badly ventilated rooms and of fices. We over-work nnd over-eat, and get too little out-door exercise, and our systems become clogged with impuri ties and the blood a hot-bed of germs and humors of every kind, and warm weather is sure to bring a reaction, and the poisonous matter in the blood And system will break out in boils and pustules or scaly eruptions and red, disfiguring bumps and pimples. Make a good beginning this season by taking a course of S. S. S. in time ; it will not only purify your blood and destroy the germs and poisons, but promotehcalthy action of the Liver and Kidneys and give yoa a good appetite at a time when you need it most. S. S. S. improves the digestion and tones up the Stomach, and you arc not continually bauntcd by the fear of indigestion every time you eat, or troubled with dizziness, nervousness and sleeplessness. There is no reason to dread the coming of warm weather if you have your system well fortified and the blood in a normal, healthy condition. It is the polluted, sluggish blood that invites disease germs, microbes and poisons of every kind and bring on a long train of Bpring and summer ailments, break down the con stitution, and produce weakness, lassitude, and other debilitating disorders. Eczema, Acne, Nettle-rash, Poison Oak and Ivy, and other irritating skin troubles are sure to make their appearance unless the humors and poisons arc antidoted and the thin, acid blood made rich and strong before .the coming of warm weather. A course of S.

The reason Is that while tho wood Is lying In the water Its sap and albuminous and salty ma terials are dissolved out If those sub- stances remain In tho wood they read ily absorb moisture from tho atmos phere, after coming out of the drying rooms, and the wood swells. Artifi cial processes of washing out the hy groscopic substances from wood which has not been floated are practiced In Germany.
