Is a blood disease and only a blood reme
dy can cure it. So many people make
the mistake of taking remedies which
at best are only tonics and cannot possi
bly reach their trouble. Mr. Asa Smith,
Greencastle, Indiana, says: "For years
I have suffered with Sciatic Rheuma
tism, which the best physicians were un
able to relieve. I took many patent
medicines but they did not seem to
teach my trouble. I gradually grew
worse nntil I was un
able to take my food
or handle myself in
any way; I was abso
lutely helpless. Three
bottles of S.S.S. re
lieved me so that I
swas soon able to move
my right arm; before
lone I could walk
across the room, and
when I bad finished one dozen bottles
was cured completely and am as well as
ever. I now weigh 170."
