Catarrh is usually regarded as nothing more serious than a bad cold or
Blight inflammation of the inner skin and tissues of the head and throat,
when it is, in fact, not only a vexatious and troublesome disease, but a com
plicated and dangerous one. It is true that Catarrh usually begins with a
cold in the head, but when the poisons, which are thrown oil through the
secretions, find their way into the blood, it becomes a constitutional trouble
that affects all parts of the body. It has more annoying and disgusting symp
toms than any other disease. There is a sickening and offensive discharge
from the nostrils, a constant buzzing nois"e in the ears, headaches and pains
in the eyes are frequent, while filthy, tenacious matter drops back into the
throat requiring continual hawking and spitting, and in certain stages of the
disease the breath has an odor that is very offensive. Catarrh is worse in
Winter, because the cold weather closes the pores and glands, and the pois
ons and unhealthy vapors which should pass off that way are thrown back
on the tender linings and tissues, causing the inflammation which starts
the unhealthy secretions to be ab- , ,, ,

matter all kinds of complications may
be looked for. As the blood circu
lates through the body the foul mat
ter finds its way into the stomach,
ruining the digestion and producing
chronic Dyspepsia, or Catarrh of the
stomach. It also affects the Kidneys.
Bladder and other members of the body, while the general health is weak
ened, appetite lost and the patient feels despondent and half sick all the time.
But worst of all, if the trouble is not checked the lungs become diseased from
the constant passage of poisoned blood through them, and Catarrh terminates
in Consumption, the most fatal of all diseases. You cannot get rid of Ca
tarrh by treating it with sprays, washes, inhalations, etc., because they only
reach the membranes and tissues, while the real cause of the trouble is in the
blood. These relieve the annoying symptoms for a time, but the poison is
all the while getting a stronger hold on the system and when they are left
off will manifest itself in worse form than before. S. S. S. is the greatest of
all blood puriGers, and when it has cleansed the blood, this pure, rich stream
circulates through the body carrying healthful properties to the diseased
parts. " Then the inflamed membranes and tissues begin to heal, the dis

the system is strengthened, every one

remedy for Catarrh. ; It goes right into
the blood and removes all effete matter

ease permanently, and at the same time builds up the entire system by its fine

How to Fool a Lazy Liver
with Artificial Exercise
TTVERY serious Sickness has a

And, in nine cases out of
o ten that small beginning is
made in the Bowels.
Indigestion is the beginning of most
It paves the way for all others.
Lack of exercise, hasty eating, Improper
food, are Its first causes.
Lazlnsss, and postponement, permits It
to grow Into Chronic Constipation, which
means life-long Discomfort.
It Isn't necessary to be sick-a-bed, you
know, In order to be mighty uncom
fortable. Even slight Indigestion affects the
nerves, dulls the mind, and obscures the
merry sunshine of Life.
And, Indigestion once started, grows
fast, corrodes temperament, and discounts
happiness, good cheer, capacity.
It does that long before It puts you on
the Sick list.
Every thinking Doctor knows why.
Professor Rand knew It.
That's why he framed up for students
his famous formula for Happiness, viz.:
"Trust In Cod, and keep your Bowels
The Bowels need adjustment from time
to time, Just like a clock, or a watch.
No "Good time" Is humanly possible
And, the time to adjust the watch Is
not when It has run down, nor when the
main spring is broken, but at the very
minute adjustment Is discovered necessary.
The time to adjust the Bowels Is not
merely when your Head Aches, when your

hours or longer.
