Hood's Sarsaparilla commends . itself with special force to the great middle classes, because it combines positive econ omy with great medicinal power. It is . the only medicine of which can be truly ,aaid '100 Doom One Dollar," and a bottle taken according to dlrectioas will average to last a mouth. Bfethod Employed on the Campos to See if a nan la la His Ream Home of the Popular Men To-Diy a Holi day for Student Officers for the New York Alumni Association. A casual visitor to the Yale campus is apt to be impressed at the manner in which the fellows students find out . if a student-fellow is in his room. He strolls up to the building in which . his friend is located, and then stands outside -under his window and yells for him as lond as his lungs will permit. It may be inter esting to note a few of the men whose names are most often and most loudly called. I suppose one hears the yell "Oh, Starr Childs," as much as any. This yell indicates that some one is suffering to talk with the chairman of the "News" board It has a companion yell of less violence, and that is "Oh, Nobby Wright," with the accent on the "Oh.". Another favorite re mork is "Oh, Ned Hale,'.' in a tone of re proach, showing that a few moment's speech is desired with the genial manager of tne Ulee club. This too, has us com panion song of "Oh. Jo Rhodes." a tele phone for the ex-captain of the football eleven. Bert Lee's name is also taken in vain with an alarming frequency. Lee is chairman of the "Lit" board, and 'is in great demand. ' Jack Uunce and JNed lsnam are two more seniors who seem to have a great amount of custom. There are two yells which any academic man of good and regular or even irregular standing for at least two years will recognize witnout armcmiy. una is from a voice with a circumflex accent, which wails out in the tones of the pewee, Oh, Bob Pomeroy, and its mate is tne thrilling cry "Oh, Ash Green." To touch unon a rew more men wnose fame is spread abroad with startling regu larity. There is a triumvirate from '92 in Lyceum composed of Peter Jay, Stan Mor- ison and "Stumn" Franklin, who receive their callers at all hours. Willie Eunvon. Hugh Bayne and Billy Wright are three more men who are called up eontinaallv. They are from the junior class, too. From '93 Murphy and Beebe seem to be in the most demand, but it is only during the day that they seem to be of use, for after supper they admit none. few more sophomores seem to be of some prominence, Dut oniy a lew. ine freshmen have not yet acquired sufficient foot hold on the campus to institute any such method of serenading, bo any shock to the nerves arising from a sound which appears at sight to be a cross between a siren s blood-curdling yell and a wnistie or a locomotive on the Consolidated road can not be laid to their charge.

" Whan I was 14 years of age I had a severe attack if rheumatism, and after I recovered had 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 soros ap peared and broke, causing me great pain and suffering. I feared I never should get well. " Early in 1886 1 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 Sarsaparilla. I was so Im pressed with the success of this medicine (hat I decided to try it. To my great gratification the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel better and In a short time. I was up .and out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar saparilla for about a year, when, having used six bottles, oad become so fully released from the dU; se that I went to work for the Flint ft Waning Mfg. Co., and since then HAVE NOT LOST A SINOLB DAT on account of sickness. I believe the disease is expelled from my system, I always feel well, am In good spirits and have a good appetite. I am now 27 years of age and ean walk as well as any one, except that ono 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 is the king of medicines."
