Poison, the symptoms are soon manifested. The mouth and throat ulcerate,
copper-colored spots appear, a red rash breaks out, the hair begins to come
out, and usually sores and ulcers show themselves on different parts of the
body. At the first sign of the disease S. S. 8. should be taken, for the
trouble is too powerful and dangerous to trine with. If allowed to run on
the tendency is to work down and attack the bones and nerves, and some
times It makes a complete physical wreck of the sufferer. The disease can
make no such headway if 8. 8. B. Is commenced and used according to direc
tions; Its progress can be stopped, the poison removed, and health preserved.

Smith has a high board fence around his

carried on In aecrecy. His eggs command
fabulous prices, both aa food and for sit

each. Not satisfied with his ham and
