I could hardly sleep at night, because the pain was too great. After a short time white spots cam on my eyes, mak ing my sight dim. so that I eonld hardly distin guish an object held close to too eyes. I trted threa doctors, but they would only soak tnesa better for a short UM and then tba trouble would bo worse than erer. In tbe spring ot ISU Hood's''Cures I heard about a boy whose eyes bad been cured by Hood's Sarsaparllla and decided to try It. My eyes got much better after I had cakes the nrst bottle, and have now been wen for over a year. I also used to have serer neadaclns, but I seldom have a headache now." Amaxda Pcttekbon. Campello.
