the other day hunting, and after tramp
ing about for some time he sat down on a
log in the woods to rost. Directly he
heard voices, and peering through the
bushes he saw a young couple, but a few
feot away, sitting Bide by side on the
grass. They were both barefooted, and
ho was in his shirt sleeves, his cotton
pants being held up by a single bed tick
ing "gallua. " The gentleman overheard
a portion of the couple's conversation,
which ran thus : ' I

It is a inktftke to consider Catarrh merely
a local trouble. It is unquestionably a
disease of the blood, and therefore the right
way to cure Catarrh is to remove from the

it. This is to be done by taklncr HoodV
Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, which

germs of disease. "
