Why Hood's Wins.
President Linc"ln said, "You cannot
fool the people a second time." They
are too quick to recognise real merit or
lack of it, and cling only to those thinre
which they find to be what is claimed
It is especially gratifyiug that the
sale of flood's Sarsaparilla increase most
rapidly in those sections where it is best
The inference is plain. Hood's Sasta

How A Great Story Was
. The history of any great and emccess
ful undertaking is always interettaing,
therefore at the risk of being accused of
violating personal confidene, we toll
our readers of the origin of a famous
story of the late war. The publisher of
the' Chicago LEDGEL wanted a staor
which,besides being a love story of gtst
. merit, should vividly describe the thrill
inog events of the battle of GettgabSrg
and the siege of Richmond. One an
thor after another failed in the work,
and at last the famous St. George Rath.
burne was approached on the sbjecLt.
He demanded a fabulous price for the
work, but it was paid, and the story wms
actually written to order. It is heOoe,
printed under the pen name o "HB~gh
Allen." It ise deelared by erities, who
Shave been shown the advaneo sheets, to
be the beot story of the war ever written.
