Being tbe most ancient, it is the most general of ail diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from It. How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa parilla. which, by the cures It has accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine for this disease. For all affections of the blood Hood's Sarsaparl'.la Is unequalled, and some of the cures it has effected are really wonderful.
