Remedy Equal to this the only remedy which completely cures it.
Scrofula is one of the most obstinate , deep-seated
blood diseases , and is beyond the reach of the
Obstinate [ many so-called purifiers and tonics because some
thing more than a mere tonic is required. S. S. S.
is equal to any blood trouble , and never fails to cure Scrofula , because it
goes down to the seat of the disease , thus permanently eliminating every
trace of the taint. ,
The serious consequences to which Scrofula surely leads
should impress upon those afflicted with it the vital im
portance of wasting no time upon treatment which can
not possibly effect a cure. In many cases where the wrong
treatment has been relied upon , complicated glandular
swellings have resulted , for which the doctors insist that
a dangerous surgical operation is necessary.
Mr. Jl.E.Thompsonof Milledgeville , Ga. , writes : "A
bad case of Scrofula broke out on the glands of my neck ,
which had to be lanced and caused me much suffering. I
was treated for a long while , but the physicians vrere un
able to cure me , and my condition was as bad as when I
began their treatment. Many blood remedies were used ,
but without effect. Some one recommended S. S. S. , and
I began to improve as soon as I had taken n , few bottles.
Continuing the remedy , I was soon cured permanently ,
and have never had a sign of the disease to return. " Swift's Specific
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
is the only remedy which can promptly reach and cure obstinate , deep-seate
blood diseases. By relying upon it , and not experimenting ; with the vario
so-called tonics , etc. , all sufferers from blood troubles can DO promptly cureo
