It Is that Impurity in tlio blood, which, ac
cumulating in tho glands of tlio neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which
causes painful running sores on tho arms,
legs, or feci; which dcvclopes ulcers In tlio
eyes, ears, or noso, often causing blindness or
deafness; which is tho origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or the many other manifesto
tions usually ascribed to " humors; " which,
fastening upon tho lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being the most ancient, it Is the
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons aro entirely free from it
How Can
It Bo
By taking Hood's Sarsaparllla, which, by
tho remarkable cures It has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. It you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparllla,
" My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the time she was 22 months
old till she became six years of age. Lumps
formed in her neck, and one of them after
growing to thetlze of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. We gave
her Ilood's Sarsaparllla, when the lump and
all Indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Cablile, Naurlght, N. J.
