Spring
Cleaning
You arc made aware of the neces-
sity for cleansing your blood in the
spring by humors, eruptions and other
outward signs of impurity.
Or that dull headache, bilious, nau-
Reous, nervous condition and that tired
feeling are due to tho same cause —
weak, thin, impure, tired blood.
America's Greatest Spring Medi-
cine is Hood's Sarsaparilla.
It makes the blood rich and pure,
cures scrofula and salt rhcutn, pives a
dear, healthy complexion, good appe-
tite, sweet Bleep, sound health.
For cleansing the blood tho best
medicine money can buy is
Hood's
Sarsaparilla
It is Peculiar to Itself.
SfuFTelonx Chicken Lega.
The mechanism of the leg and foot of
a chicken or other bird that roosts on a
limb Is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird will sit on a
roost and sleep all night without fall
ing off, but the explanation Is perfectly
simple. The tendon of the leg of a bird
that roosts is so arranged that when
the leg is bent at the knee the claws
are bound to contract and thus hold
-with a sort of death grip the limb
around wbicb they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist and then
make the bird sit down, and you will
have a practical Illustration on your
skin that you will remember for some
time. By this singular arrangement,
seen only In such birds as roost, they
will rest comfortably and never think
of holding on, for it is Impossible for
them to let go till they stand up.—Pres
byterian.
ECZEMA'S
ITCH IS TORTURE.
Eczema is caused by an acid humor in
the blood coming in contact with the
skin and producing great redness and in-
flammation ; little pustular eruptions form
and discharge a thin, sticky fluid, which
dries and scales off ; sometimes the skin is
hard, dry aud fissured. Eczema in any
form is a tormenting, stubborn disease,
and the itching and burning at times are
almost unbearable; the acid burning
humor seem* to ooze out and set the skin
on fire. Salves, washes nor other exter-
nal applications do any real good, for a 1
long as the poison remains in the blood
it will keep the skin irritated.
BAD FORM OF TETTER.
"For three years I (i -
had Tetter on my JKafijifc
hands, which caused
them to swell to twice jMljffflffiSfiJli
theirnatural size. Part «jy«»oeaJ»

RECOVERY
[Suffered Twenty-five Years]
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 1, 1898.
Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, O.
My dear Doctor — It gives me pleas-
ure to certify to the excellent curative
qualities of your medicines, Peruna
Hon. J. D. Botkin,
Congressman at-Large from Kanias.
and Manalin. I have been afflicted,
more or less, for a quarter of a century
with catarrh of the stomach and con-
stipation; a residence in Washington
having increased these troubles.
A few bottles of your medicines have
given me almost complete relief, and
I am sure that a continuation of their
use will effect a permanent cure.
Peruna is surely a wonderful remedy
for catarrhal affections.
J. D. BOTKIN.
If you do not derive prompt and sat-
isfactory results from the use of Pe-
runa, write- at once to Dr. Hartman,
giving a full statement of your case
and he will be pleased to give you his
valuable advice gratis.
