Oh the Pain!
The aches and pains of Rheumatism
become a constant companion to all who
are victims of this disabling disease.
Much suffering could be avoided if the
first warning pains of Rheumatism were
heeded and the proper treatment at once
taken. But the people generally are
not acquainted with the cause of the
disease, though thousands know its tor
tures. Those who use liniments and
ointments cannot understand why they
grow worse each winter, and find them
selves gradually becoming unable to get
around as they once could; yet they
know that their trouble came on at first
as little aches and pains, which hardly
attracted their attention.)
Everybody should know more about
rheumatism; they should know that it
is a peculiar condition of the blood upon
which all the liniments in the world
can have no effect whatever.
best blood remedy is needed—one which
is able to go to the very seat of the
disease, ana force it out. Swift’s Specific
(S.S.S.) is the right remedy for Rheu
matism, because it is the only blood
remedy free from tnereury, potash and
other minerals which intensify the dis.
ease, causing stiffness of the joints and
aching of the bones.
