fonr-nftha of human diseases Lst their

which restores that fluid from a de
praved to a, healthy condition comes as
near Vine a universal cure as any that
can be prod uced. Aecs SarsmparUla
affecta the blood In each stage ot it
formation, and la, therefore, adapted to
a greater variety of complaints than any
other known medicine.
Boils and Carfcttnclet,
which defy ordinary treatment, yield to
Ayer's SarsaparUla after comparative
ly brief trial.
Mr. C. K. Murray, of Charlottesville,
Va., writes that for years he was af
flicted with boils which caused bins
much suffering. These were succeeded
by carbuncles, ot which be bad several
at one time. He then began th us of
Ayer's Saraaprilla, and after taking
three bottles, the carbuncles disap
peared, and for six years he has not had
even a pimple.
That insidious disease. Scrotal, is
the fruitful cause of innumerable com
plaints. Consumption being only on ot
many equally fatal. Eruptions, ulcere,
sore eyes, glandular swellings, weak
and wasted muscles, a capricious appe
tite, and the like, are pretty sure indi
cations of a scrofulous taint In th
system. Many otherwise beautiful face
are disfigured by pimples, eruptions,
and unsightly blotches, which arise
from impureblood, showing the need ot
Ayer's SarsaparUla to remedy the sviL
All sufferers from blood disorders
should give Ayer's Saraaparilla a fair
trial, avoiding all powders, ointments,
and washes, and especially cheap and
worthless compounds, which not only
fail to effect a cure, but more frequently
aggrarste and confirm the diseases they
axe .fraudulently advertised to remedy.

The weed once grew plentifully tiuxiugh

they present a very pretty appearance,
and look more like a dwarf tree than a
weed. They are ery dangerous in case

"I never could understand how the
newspapers or 'general public could ap
plaud a desperado who announces his in
tention of dying with his boots on,' " re
marked a physician the other day. "A
man who calmly faces death from an in
curable disease, wlule ho goes about his
usual occupation or is cheerful at home,
is tlie one to admire. I have such a pa
tient now. Be knows there is no hoe,
yet lie is almost indifferent to his fate. It
is difficult to fully appreciate such heroic

A real Yahoo girl is at present on view

with liair lialf an inch to an inch in

elbows, and insides of the hands. She
has backentaschen and thirteen dot sal
