Back . in the - '90s, when Profes
sor John Garrison, now retired, was
conducting a writing school in Salem,
the lato A. Bush was once in need of
someone who was a good penman, so
naturally iio went to Mr. Oarrison with
the request that If he had a really good
penman in his school he shorild send
him over to the bank. Well, Mn Gar
rison bud just such a person, ami short

later governor or Oregon, applied tor
the position and was accepted.

In the spring your blood Is Impure
and weak, eruptions appear on your
face and body, you lack vitality,
strength and animation, your appe

Get Hood's Sarsaparilla from any
druRglst. It combines Just the roots,
barks, herbs and other substances
that you need.
It purifies and strengthens the
blood makes the rich red blood that
you must have to feel well, look well,
eat and sleep well. This is confirmed
by thousands of letters from people
in all parts of Mie country.
Hood's Sarsaparilla Is the best
spring medicine, but is not simply a

blood purifier and tonic.
Remember it has stood the test of
forty years. Be sure to get Hood's,
