A sad case was that of a friend of mine
who went to a pnnsmitlrs to buy a revolv
er previous to going abroad. The man be
hind the counter handed him a number of
new revolvers to choose from, and my friend
kept on trying the pulls, when one of them
went off, killing the salesman instantan
eously. At the inquest it appeared that
tbe revolver was one of a number that had
been scut on approval to a pontloman. and
before sending them back he had evidently
overlooked a eart ridge in one of the eliam
hers, with this dire result. London Tit

King of Medicines
Scrofulous Humor A Cure
" When I was 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 lny bed
years. In that time ten or eleven sores ap
peared and broke, causing me great pain and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
M Early In 1SS6 1 went to Chicago to visit a
sister, but was confined to my bed most of the
time I was there. In July I read a book, ' A
Day with a Circus,' in which were statements
of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilia. I was so Im
pressed with the success ot this medicine that
I decided to try it. To my great gratification
the sores soon decreased, and I began to feci
better and in a short time I was up and
out ol doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar
saparilia 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 & Waning Mfg. Co., and since then

I am now 27 years of age and can walk as well

shorter than the other, owing to the loss of
bone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.

miraculous, and I think Hood's Sarsaparilia
