A Good Appetite
Is essential to good health and at this season it is
often lost, owing to the poverty or Impurity of the
blood, and the weakening effect of the changing
season. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a wonderful medi
cine for creating an appetite, toning the digestion,
and giving strength to the whole system. Now is
the time to take it.
"I had been troubled with pimples on my lower
limbs, loss of sleep and appetite, and in fact was
generally ran down. After taking Hood's Sarsa
parilla the pimples disappeared, my appetite was
renewed, and I feel better in every respect."

"I must say Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best medi
cine I ever used. Last spring I had no appetite,
and the least work I did fatigued me ever so much.
I began totake Hood's Sarsaparilla, and soon I felt
as if I could do as much in a day as I had formerly
done in a week. My appetite is voracious." MBS.

TREATING THE THTROJSTGr DISEASE.
Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease,
another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion, or prostration, another with pain here or there, and in thiswav
they all present alike to themselves and their easy-going and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, separate and distinct diseases for which
he prescribes his puis and potions, assuming them to be such, when, in reality, they are all only symptoms caused by some womb-
disorder. Th physician, ignorant of the cause of suffering, encourages his practice until large bOis are made. Th Buffering
patient gets no better, but probably worse by reason of the delay, wrong treatment and consequent complications. A proper
medicine, like DR. PIERCE 'S FAVORITE PRESCRIPTIO N, directed to the cause, would have entirely removed the disease, thereby dis-
pelling all those distressing symptoms, and instituting comfort instead of prolonged misery. i
