A Remarkable Cure. Mrs. H. B. Adams, 1G09 Wabash ave., Chicago, says: "I had a scrofulous taint of the blood from childhood, which however, remained dormant. An ul cer began on the side of the nose, hav ing all the appearances of a most ma lignant cancer. The agony of mind I suffered cannot be described as I con templated the progress of such a ma lignant disease. Finally I was induced to try Foley's Sarsaparilla. It appeared to neutralize the poison in the blood. The growth of the ulcer ceased. The diseased tissues in tho bottom and edges of tlie sore seemed to loosen and tho natural flesh to take its place. No part of the disease remains.'' B. F. Vaughan. To men pressed by their wants change is ever welcome.—Johnson. all Have You Had the Grip?

Hartman, of Tunnellou, West Va., has been subject to attacks of colic about once a year, and would have to call a doctor and then suffer for about twelve hours as much as some do when they die.
