King of Medicines
Scrofulous Humor A' Cure
" When I wa3 14 years of age I had a severe
attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered
had to go on crutches. A year later, scrofula,
in the form of white swellings, appeared on
various parts of my body, and for 11 years I
was an invalid, being confined to my bed
years. In that time ten or eleven sores ap
peared and broke, causing me great pahl and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
" Early In 1S3G I went to Chicago to visit a
sister, but was confined to my bed most of the
time 1 was there. In July 1 read a book, ' A
Day with a Circus,' in which were statements
of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla. I was so Im
pressed with the success of this medicine that
I decided tQ try it. To my great gratification
the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel
better and in a short time I was up and
out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar
saparilla for about a year, when, having used
six bottles, I had become so fully released
from the disease that I went to work for the
Flint & Walling Mfg. Co., and since then
HAVE NOT LOST A SINGLE DAT
on account of sickness. I believe the disease
. Is expelled from my system, I always feel well,
am in good spirits and have a good appetite.
I am now 27 years of age and can walk as well
as any one, except that one limb is a little
shorter than the other, owing to the loss of
bone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.
T6 my friends my recovery seems almost
miraculous, and I think flood's Sarsaparilla
is the king of medicines." William A.
