ONLY SERVE AS A MASK FOR
CONTAGIOUS BLOOD POISON
They hide its repulsive form, and this serpent disease,
Stupefied by these drugs, lies dormant until the effects have
worn off or treatment is discontinued, when it breaks down
tne mask and becomes as full of life and venom ns ever. Mercury and Fotash
may dry ttptlie Fores and eruptions, but at the same time they drive th
poison back into the blood and system, where it feeds tipon the tender tissues,
membranes and nerves, finally breaking out in most disgusting sores ana
even destroying the flesh and bones.
Mercury and Totash cannot accomplish a radical and permanent cure.
They have a palliative but not curative effect upon this treacherous snake
like disease. These drugs prodvee mercurial Rheumatism, destroy the teeth
and corrode the membranes of the stomach and bowel3, causing inflammation
and dyspepsia, nervousness and general derangement of the system.

for the peculiar virus that spreads so quickly throughout the system, cor
rupting the blood and infecting every organ and fibre of the body.
