Scrofula is a disease as old as antiquity.
It has been banded down for genera

early liases. It is emphatically a di
sease of tbe blood, 'and the only way to
cure it is by purifying the b'od.
That is juat wbst Hood's Sareaparilla
does in every case where it is giveo
a faithful trial. It eradicates s 11 impuri
titi from the blood, and cures the
sores, boils, pimples and all forma of
skin disease due lo scrofula taints in
tbe blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla has won
the grateful praise of vast numbers
of people by its grand and complete
cures. Don't allow scrofula to de
velop in your blxd. Care it at once by
