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
bad 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 pain and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
Early In 18S6 I 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 Sarsaparllla. I was so im
pressed with the success of this medicine that
I decided to try it. To my great gratification
the sores soon decreased, and 1 began to feel
better and in a short time I was up and
out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar-
saparllla 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

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.
To my friends my recovery seems almost
miraculous, and I think Hood's Sarsaparilla
