THE HARVEST OF DEATH

Neighbors Could riot Bear to Look
Upon Her A Crend, Complete
Cure by Hocd's Sarsaparilla
After Others Failed.
'I was taken with neuralgia in my
bead and eyes. Not long after this, a
scrofula sore appeared on my left cheek,
extending from my upper lip to my eye.
Other sores came on my neck and on my
right arm and one of my limbs. They
were very troublesome and painful and
toon became great running sores. My
tace looked bo bed that some of my
neighbors could not bear to look at mo
and advised me to wear a bandage, but I
feared this would irritate the sore and
make it worse. So I
Could Not Hide tha Sores.
My niece, wbo was familiar with a case
similar to mine, which had been cured by
Hood's Sarsaparilla, urged me to try it.
Finally I was persuaded to do so, and in
a short time I saw it was helping me.
The sores began to heal and the neu
ralgia in my head was better. In a few
months the sores on my arms and limbs
all healed; those on my neck gradually
disappeared and now they are all gone.
I have never had any symptom of scrofula
since. One large scar on my right arm is
all the sign that remain of my terrible
affliction. The neuralgia is also cured.'
