No Universal Remedy has yet been discovered ; Imt, as at least four-Mtlis of human diseases have their aourca in Impure lllood, a medicine vf hich restores that tlnul from a de praved to a htalthv condition conies as near being a unhers.il euro as any that can he produced. A fcri Sarsaparllla 1 affects the blood in each stage ot its formation, and is, therefore, adapted to a greater anetypf complaints than any other know n medicine. Boils and Carbuncles, which defv ordinary treatment, yield to Aycr's Sarsaparilla after a comparative ly brief trial. Mr. C. K. Srurray, of Charlottesville, Va , writes that for years he was af flicted with boils which caused him t much suffering. These were succeeded by carbuncles, of which he had several at one time. lie then began the use of Ayer's Sirsapanlla, and after taking three bottles, the carbuncles disap peared, and for six years he has not had even a pimple. That insidious disease. Scrofula, Is the fruitful ciuso ot innumerable com plaints, Consumption being only one of many equally fatal. Eruptions, ulcers, sore eyes, glandular swellings, weak and wasted muscles, a capricious appe tite, and tho like, are pretty sure indi cations of a scrofulous taint in the system. Many otherwise beautiful facea are disfigured by pimples, eruptions, and unsightly blotches, which arise from impure blood, showing the need ot Ayer's Sarsaparilla to remedy the evil. All sufferers from blood disorders should give Acer's Sarsaparilla a fair trial, aoidiu'gall powders, ointments, and washes, and estecially cheap and worthless compounds, which not only fall to effect a cure, but more frequently aggravate and confirm the diseases they are fraudulently adiertised to remedy.
