Who have taken Hood'ff Sarsaparilla

been cured of indigestion and dyspepsia, ,
another finds it . indispensable for sick
headache, others report remarkable
cures of scrofula, salt rheum and other
blood diseases, still others will tell you
that it overcomes "that tired feeling,"

happy way of its own of sending
its roots down deep into the sand
and extracting from its cavernous
depths thatsuccharine matter which

palate. And then, alter the rains
jmd the dews have brought abloom,
modest and blushing, to the trail
ing vine, the tierej sun sends a ray
darting like an arrow to pluck the

a bulb, green and ambitious, which,
shortly expands into huge propor

the terws of watch-dog and shot

dark of the moon and hie him to a
trysting place to t rack the brittle
rind and bury his nose and mouth
in the watery meat."
