SGROULR RND ITS IWFUL HORRORS
A MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in
the year 1812, the year of the great war, in Hebron, Washington Co., New
York. She came to Michigan in 1S40, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory, her mind Is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use of
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and is cursing the lives of thousands and marking thousands more as vic
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, In unsightly swellings in the neck or
goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing In the lungs It may be,
and often is, the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. My arms and limbs would break out In a mass of
sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very
unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were alko greatly Inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very
much. My blood w,.C ': a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent Intervals, nnd I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I
was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. On~e of the best physic~ans In
the state told me I must dIe of scrofulous consumption, as Internal abcesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else, as I had no faith in it, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking it. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up, all the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course an old lady
of S3 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA is the
greatest blood purifier and the best medicine In the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably Interesting old lady did
not lok to be more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
