Here ia another case where the flrat
symptoms of a most violent Cancer
were too htnall to receive much notice
until the disease had fully developed.
Mrs. Laura E. Mima has resided at
Bmithvllle, Georgia, for years, audhs
well known throughout the adjoining
country. In a recent letter she tell
of a wonderful case.
She says: "A small pimple of a

after exhausting their efforts without
doing me any good, they gave up the
case as hopeless. When informed that
my father had died from the same
disease, they said I must die, as tiered
itary Cancer was incurable. I was
terribly reduced in health, and felt as
if my life was wasting away.
" At this crisis, I was advised by a
friend to try S. S. S., and in a short
while the Cancer seemed more in
flamed than before. I was informed
that waa favorable, however, as the
medicine acts by forcing out the
poison through the pores of the skin.
"Before long the Cancer began to
