The Spring Medicine.
The popularity which Hood's Sarsapa
rilla has gained as a spring medicine is
wonderful. It possesses just those ele
ments of health-giving, blood-purifying
and appetite-restoring which everybody
seems to need at this season. Do not
continue in a dull, tired, unsatisfactory
condition when you may be so much ben
fitted by Hood's Sarsaparilla. It purifies
the blood and makes the weak strong.

now on my third bottle, and able to over
see the work on my farm. It is the finest
medicine ever made."
Jesse Middlewart, Decatur. Ohio, says:
"Had it not lieen for Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption I would have
died of lung troubles. Was given up by
doctors. Am now in best of health."
