The popularity which Hood's Harsapas
rilla has gained as s spring medicine is
wonderful. It possesses just those ele
ments of health-Hiring, blood-purifying
and sppetite-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 snd makes the weak strong.

a general revival of trade at Haitz &

away to their customers of so many free
trial bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery

from the fact that it aways cures and

The transition from long lingering
and painful sickness to robust health
marks an epoch in the life of the individ
ual. Such a remarkable event is treas

the good health has been attained is
gratefully blessed . Hence it is that so
much is heard in praise of Electric Bit
ters. So many feel they owe their res
toration to health, to the use of the great
alterative and tonic. If you are ttoubled
with any disease of kidneys, liver or
stomacb, of Ions or short standing you
will surely find relief by use of Electric
Bitters. Sold at 50c and $1 per bottle
