WHAT WE INHERIT
We arc not to blame for. We can

derive from our ancestors,nor are we
responsible for the germs of disease
which may manifest themselves in
our blood as a heritage from former
generations. But we are responsi
ble if we al ow these germs to de
velop into serious diseases which
will impair our usefulness and de
stroy our happiness. We are re
sponsible if we transmit to our de
scendants the disease germs which
it is possible for us to eradicate by
the use of Hood's Sarsaparil.a, the
one true blood purifier. This medi
