and hair-breadth escape is taken by thousands daily who might be
healthy if they would take advantage of their opportunities.
All persons suffering from the Impurities of the Blood are a ready
prey of Epidemics, Malarial Fevers and all forms of Prostration.
The blood Nourishes and Maintains the Several Tarts of the
Foc'.y. It is evident, then, that to cure diseases originating in Impure
lilood we must have a purifying agent that will eliminate the taint,
and thus Remove the Cause. Kickapoo Indian Sagwa will
cure all troubles originating in impure blood saf ;ly, speedily per
manently, and with economy. Impure blood is manifest in Pimples,
1 Notches, Boils, Carbuncles, Eruptions or Sores, Sallow Skin, Salt
Rheum, Etc. The only way in which.to alter this s :ate of things is to
Cleanse The Blood from all Impurities and allow a F.-ee, Unobstructed
Circulation Through Every Vein and Artery of the Body.
Kickapoo Indian Sagwa
as a Blood-making, Blood-ckansing and Life-sustau.itg medicine has
eclipsed any blood purifier yet produced.
Of all races in the world the Indians stand pre-eminent for their
longevity and health. Why is it? Listen! If perchance sickness
attacks them, no Poisonous Drugs are resorted to,
Nothing But Nature.
Nature is consulted and nature's gifts approprir ted to their cure.
The best and most reliable of roots, herbs, barks and gums con
stitute their medicines hence the Indian's nolle physique, pure
blood, high muscular development, strong frame, and sound lungs.

Amoug the many places of interest
which surround Americus, Ga., there
is none so historic in its character, or
of which so much has been srwken and
written, as Andersonvilie, the site of
the old confederate prison auci the na
tional cemetery, in which lie the re
jnains of over 13,000 union soldiers,
says the Sottlhern Tourist. It lies
eleven miles northeast of Americus,
ami can be reached by rail or carriage.
The drive is a pleasant and picturesque
one, the road winding among the hills
and valleys and passing through forests
of pine. Of the old prison pen, which
was in fact nothing but a stockade in
closing thirty acres of land through
which runs Sweetwater creek, but lit
A few straggling half-rotted posts
mark the line of the stockade; a few
low earthworks, upon which were
mounted small lixed pieces, show

into the hard red clay for shelter and
in the hope of escape. Providence
Spring, which burst forth just on the
edge of the "dead liue" and furnished
fresh water for thousands of thirsty
throats, still contributes its never-failing
stream to Sweetwater creek. The
grounds are now the property of the
grand army of the republic, having
been purchased by the department of
Georgia and turned over to the na
tional encampment. Carriage ways
and walks have been constructed
through the grounds, and it is fntend
ed to erect a clubhouse. Visitors oc

The ualional cemetery, in which lie
representatives from every state in the
union, and from almost "every regi
ment, with its 13,000 white headstones
resembling a great army of the dead,
lies about half a mile from the prison
grounds and is surrounded by a brick
wall. The grounds are nicely laid out,
walks well paved, the lawns kept nice
ly shaved, while clumps of trees and
shrubbery break the monotony of an
almost level plateau. All but a few
hundred of the graves are laid out in
long, straight lines, with avenues be
tween, just as they were dug by the
burial corps of prisoners who laid side
by side their dead brethren. A
wonderfully correct record was kept
by. this burial corps, and this record
has been transcribed aud is kept in the
office of the superintendent, who can
in a few minutes point out the exact
f pot of anyone buried in the grounds.
Near the center of the grounds, apart
from all others, unmarked and un
honored, lie the remains of four prison
ers who were convicted by their fellow
Erisoners of robbery and murder, and

The man coming down the street dis

results in many cases. Head the following:
" I was for a long tune a sufferer from

goodpupose. One day I read one of the Hood's
Sarsapariiia books, and thought I would try a
bottle of the medicine. It made so great a dif
ference In my condition that I took three bottles
more and found myself perfectly well. I

good health. I am willing that this shall be
used for the benefit of others." Mrs. Sabah
