Tfte -A I, HEALTHY OR DISEASED When there is a natural and healthy circulation of tne blood, the entire quantity, estimated at one-eighth the weight of the body, passes through the heart every five minutes. This rapid flow of the blood through the system prevents the entrance of disease germs and impurities of every description. It filters out all that is not necessary or good for the growth anil development of the body and nourish ing and strengthening the muscles, tissues, nerves and bones. But, unfortunately, few persons can rightly claim an absolutely pure blood supply and perfect and unpolluted circulation, and in consequence are exposed to innumerable diseases. Contagious Blood Poison, the greatest enemy to mankind, enters the system through the blood, and Cancer, Scrofula, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Eczema, Salt Rheum, Tsoriasis, Tetter—in fact the majority of human ailments —are caused by poisons or humors that are engen- _ _ — dered and fostered in a sluggish ThO Bl 00(1 IS ftlC SOUT*CO and impoverished blood. Old _ _ ,/r, sores, chronic ulcers and rheumatic pains are com- ST All mon, especially among old people, whose blood naturally grows thin and pale because of the lack of the red corpuscles that give color anl strength to youthful blood. Sallow complexions and rough, oily shins evidence some constitutional or blood trouble, which salves,, lotions, powders nor any external treatment can cure. Diseases that originate in the blood, whether they manifest themselves as ulcers, tumors, itching eruptions, muscular or bone pains, require a tonic and blood purifier such as S. S. S., which not only antidotes and neutralizes blood poisons and humors, but possesses health-giving tonic proper ties that no other blood medicine does. It goes down to the very foundation of the disease and eliminates from the system every- Polluted Blood thing of a poisonous character or that obstructs and clogs the circulation. It builds up and imparts Bf^CedS DlSOIISO Bew strength and vitality to the old innutritious blood, and when the arteries and veins are once more filled with new rich blood, the general health begins to improve, muscles grow stronger, and sores and eruptions of every kind disappear. S. S. S. is the only guaranteed purely vegetable blood purifier, and the purest and most reliable in all blood diseases. It has been tested in thousands of cases during the past fiftv vears and is more popular today than ever.
