from Winston, as follows: ' Ev?r since I
was seven years of nc;o I luve hr.d what
the doctors rail hip disease, und which I
call white swelling. My hip was drawn
out of pluce. There was a swelling at the
knee-joint, where there is a profuso run
ning, which has Iwc n there for years. Of
course this has greatly depleted my sys
tem, together with surifieal operation on
the left boue. I tried every known blood
purifier to build up my system, but none
did mo giKid until 1 took S. S. S. I use it
every spring. It idwavs builds nie up,
giving me appetite and Jigeslion, nnd ena

The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in tho form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense, of General Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest tho use of
Aycr's Snrsnpurillii. This preparation
is most elToctive for giving tone ami
strength to tho enfeebled system, pro
moting the digestion and assimilation of
food, restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, ami for purify
ing, curicbing, ami vitalizing tho blood.
Ten years ngo my health In'gan to fall.
I was troubled Willi a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that I coil Id not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended mo to try Ayer's
iSursannrilla, which I did, and I am now
ns healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have tiBed Ayer's SnrsnpariHa. in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have
al.'io prescribed it as a tonic, ns well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to be tho best blood medicine
evercompoiinded. W. F. Fowler, M. D.
V. V. 8., Urcenvillo,Tcuu.
It would lie impossible for me to le
scrilw yhat I sullered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
tho euro of various physicians, and tried
a (rreat many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a abort time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed iu
duties more perfectly, 'i'olay my
health is complete! v restored. Mary
llarley, Springlield, Mass.
I have been greatly lienefited by the
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates the system, regu
lates the action of the digestive and
assimilative organs, and vila.'res tho
Idood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

about his father's immense wealth and at
tributes these stories aud the rest of his deeds

use of opium. He also stated that Gi-o. II.
