King of Medicines
Scrofulous Humor A Cure
" When I was 14 years of age I had a severe
attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered
had to go on crutehes. A year later, scrofula,
in the form of white swellings, appeared on
various parts of my body, and for 11 years I
was an invalid, being confined to my bed
years. In that, time ton or eleven sores ap
peared and broke, causing ine great pain and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
" Early in 18SC I went to Chicago to visit a
sister, but was confined to my bed most of the
time I was there. In July I read a book, A
Day with a Circus,' in which were statements
of enres by llood's Sarsanarilla. I was so iro
pressed with tbe success of this medicine that
I decided to try it. To my great gratification
the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel
better and in a short time I was up and
out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar
saparilla for about a year, when, having used
six bottles, I had become so fully released
from tne disease that I went to work for the
Flint & Waning Mfg. Co., and since then
DAVE NOT LOST A SINGLE DAT
on account of sickness. I believe the disease
is expelled from my system, I always feel well,
am in good spirits and have a good appetite.
I am now 27 years of age and can walk as well
as any one, except that one limb is a little
shorter than the other, owing to the loss of
bone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.
To my friends my recovery seems almost
miraculous, and I think Hood's Sarsaparilla
is the king of medicines.' William A.

There are none (inch that can. Chronic disorders
cannot be instantaneously removed. Continuity
in the use of a genuine medicine, soch as Hostel
