Some of tbcie little proprietors of iam
parillaa put up in half-pint bottles art en
vious of the increasing popularity of Dr.
John Bull's fttrsaparilla, put up as it Is in
large quart bottles, and intimate that their
is more concentrated. This is as false aa
deceit can be. A teaspoonful of Bull's
Sarsaparilla contains more concentrated
medicinal virtue than a tnblcspoonful of
any other sarsaparilla made. A bottle of
Dr. John Bull's Sarsaparilla contains six
times the curative virtue of a bottle of any
other blood purifier made. No exception
la made. Now nn invalid wants his
money's worth. He wants good measure.
Therefore, unless misled through ignor
ance, when his system needs a blood puri-
fler, when his system needs a tonic, when
his system is breaking down from blood
impurity or some waiting disease, ho will
demand of his druggist a bottle of Bull's
Sarsaparilla, and on no occasion be per
suaded to take anything that may be off
ered in its stead aa being "just as good."
There is no other remedy so good as Bull's
Sarsaparilla for such diseases as scrofula,
syphilitic affections, salt-rheum, itch, ec
tema, pimples, sores, rheumatism, lama
back, swollen joints, aching muscles, nerv
ous weakness, nervous debility, loss of
appetite, loss of rle-di, loss of strength,
sleeplessness, premature old age, etc.
T.1J Woodruti;joll'er.xonville,Iud., writes:
"For ten years I had been an Invalid. 1 be
came a ohroulu medicine tuVcr. There is
not a blood remedy or u tonic advertised
that I did not try. From uone of them did
I derive any pormunent feood. I became
discouraged. My syRtem was full of blood
Impurities. My slim was covered In places
With brown patches and little sores. My
musclei had lost their strength. I was very
weak. My appetite and digestion were mis
erable. I kept growing worse and worsa
until I began to use Dr. Bull's Sarsaparilla.
I then began to rally at once, and grew
stronger uud stronger. I have now used
firobably J bottles, and my Improvement
n looks and feeling is bo great 1 sesm like
another person. I am now well and strong,
and givo the whole credit of my recovery to
Dr. Hull's Sarsaparilla.'
BWYour children will bo more healthy,
happy and pretty. If you occasionally give
them Dr. John Bull's Worm Destroyers.
Try them. Price 25 cents.
MT'Wnen you have chills and fever, If
you want a sure cure and one that does not
taste bad, tako Smith's Tonic Syrup. It
will please you bolter than quinine or an
other chill medicine.
