It was said that he had left at homo a

There woro no indications of fraud
about the man and ids sad story was
probably true. It was a very oU/eotlye
appeal to tbo liborabty of passers by.
Whether it was anybody's duty to help
the man is another affair. Disregarding

him about was halo and strong and
might have boon toiling for his friend

own fault. If we glvo to ouo beggar,

'THEY ALL SAY
Tnat for purifying the bjtoou, strengthening the appetite, re
moving that tired feeling, and building up the system, Ayer's
Sarsaparille? is the best. No other blood medicine is so rapid
in its effects nor so permanent in its results. .
" I was ri preat sufferer from a low
condition of UM Mood and general de
bility, becoming finally so reduced that
I rras tiMtvt for work. Nothing that I
did for the complaint helped mo so
much as Ayer's S n aparilln. a few bot
tles of which restored me to health and
th. 1 take every opportunity to
recdmmeod this tuedlolrie in similar
oases." ? V. Evfck, U East Mala st.,
"Sometime ago I found my system
entirely run down. I had i\ feeling of
constant fatlguu and languor and very
little ambition for any kind of effort. A
friend advised mo to try Ayer's Sarsapa
rilln. which I did with the best results.
It lui3 c'.ono me moro good than all
O?jer medicines I have ever used."?P,
Mellows, 1C2 Broadway, Chelsea^Mass.
"My constitution Is naturally delicate,
hut some time ago I became so weak
atid languid that I was unable to per
form my work, which Is mental. A fine
eruption, which gave much trouble and
distress, made Its appearance on my
skin. The physicians' proscriptions
proving of no avail, l was Induced to
try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and soon my
strength returned and my sklu resumed
its natural appearance For a tonlo,
blood-purifier, and general health
restore r, I can heartily recommmid
Ayer's Sarsttparllla." ? Miss Maggie
O'Neill, IS. Nodoway, Iowa.
" 1 use Ayer's Sarsaparilla with great
satisfaction in my family, and can roc
ommend It to all who have the care of
y?urtg ami delicate children." ?Mrs.
Joseph McComber, Brooklyn, x. Y.
"Ayer's Sarsaparilla has a well-deserved
reputation In this locality for restoring to
healthy, vigorous action tho vital organs
of tho body when they havo become weak
ened or exhausted. I havo used it hi my
family for this purpose, especially after
the system had become depleted from
malarial attacks."?Charles C. Hamilton,
"After years of experience as a druggist,
during which time I have seen, handled,
and heard of blood-purifiers almost with
out number, 1 can conscientiously say that,
tor genuine merit, I regard Ayer's Sarsa
parilla as without a rival. This medicine
has always inspired and deserved confi
dence, and at no time has It ever had so
great a hold upon tho public as at tho
present day."?Gcorgo Lhmott, Dispensing
I Chemist, 49 Sherman ave., Newark, N. J.
"Ayer's Sarsaparilla, for building up tho general health, stands at tho head of tho
list."? .lames M. Williams, M. 1)., Sunnier, Ark.

'About a year ago I began using Ayer's
Sarsaparilla as a remedy for debility and
neuralgia resultiug from malarial exposure
In tho army. I was In a very bad comll
Uon, but six bottles' of the Sarsaparilla,
with occasional doses of Ayer'sTMlls, have
greatly improved my health. 1 am now
able to work, ami feel that I canuot say
too much for your excellent remedies."?
F. A. Pinkliam, South Moluucus, Me.
" I havo suffered for years from a low
condition of the blood aud general debil
