Isn't ono Snraapnrilla as good aa
another? No! No!! No!!!
Don't think it. Don't for a moment
think it. If you want Bull's Sarsaparilla,
demand it and take no other. It contains
Ingredients that are not found In any other
sarsaparilla. These very Ingredients thai
make it different from other &arsaparilias
are cue most important, in lact, essential
to its cuiatire virtue. Omit them and
Bull's Sarsaparilla would be as inert as
tho many inferior preparations of sarsapa
rilla found in many drug stores. Bull's
Sanaparilla contains no unimportant in
gredient. Each ingredient used is chosen
for its beneficent effect upon the human
system. Combined, they exert a harmo
nizing influence upon every" function of
the body, improving digestion, strengthen
ing (tie liver and kidneys, cleansing the
blood of poisonous matter, toothing the
nervous system, enlivening the mental
faculties, and in a word, by infusing new
strength and life, completely rejuvenates
every part and makes oue feel altogether
like a new person.
Elmer Uodson, Aivarctto, Tex., writes:
" My strength and health had been failing
me for several years. My blood was in a
very impoverished condition and very Im
pure. My limbs felt lame, rickety and
rheumatic, and I could not walk without
tottering. I felt myself growing prema
turely old, and my face began to look
pinched and shrivelled. I suifered con
siderable, was restless at night, very ner
vous, and growing very melancholy. My
eyes were sore and I had catarrh. I tried
many tonics, and bitters and blood puri
fiers, but failed to get better. I finally
bought six bottles of Bull's Sanaparilla,
and before I had used it all I felt like
another man. My strength and health
improved, pimples and sores disappeared
from my person, aches and stiff joints left
me, and I consider myself a well person."
"There Is no other remedy i
a nleaiant
to take and so sure In Its effect as Dr. Bull's
worm Destroyers. Price 25 cent.
SV There la one chill remedy whose ef
fect Is certainty. It has been tested lav
many thousands severe cases and never
known to fall. It Is called Smith's Tosle
