" I wrw all broken down in health,
so weak and nervous I was hardly
able to be up. I had severe pains in
my side, and headache. I would often
have to stop whan g oing up-stairs on
account of palpitation of the heart.
I had no appetite and a distressed feel

Hood's Sarsnpnrill ». I took two bot

headache for four months, feel well,
work all day and cat heartily. My

Is so important that you should be sure
to get THE BEST. Hood's Sarsapa
rilla has proven its unequalled merit by
its thousands of remarkable cures, and
the fact that it has a larger sale than
any other sarsaparilla or blood puri
fier shows the great confidence the
people have in it. In fact it is the
Spring Medicine. It cures all blood
diseases, builds up the nerves and
gives such strength to the whole system
that, as one lady puts it, " It seemed to
make me anew."
If you decide to take Hood's Sarsa
parilla for your Spring Medicine do
not buy any substitute. Be sure to get
