Scrofula is a disease as old as antiquity.
It has been handed down for genera
tions and is the rante today as in
t-nrly times. It ie emphatically a di-
M-ase of ttie blood, and the only way to
cure it is by purifying the t-i-oj.
That is just what Hood'e Sareaparilla
does in every case tiers It is given
faithful trial. It eradicates all iropuri
ii-n irom iw uiuou, anu cures uie :
sores, boils, pimplea and all forms of j
skin disease due to scrofula taints in !
the blood. Hood's Sarsapgrilla has won
the grateful praise of vft numbers
of people by its grand and complete
cures. Doo't allow scrofula to de
