Hood's Praises Itself
Kidney Troubles - Brlght'a
How Able to Work and Sound M a
Mr. John Saxton
Of Scottdale. Fa.
' I do think Hood's Sarsaparllla Is 'worth its
welghtin gold.' For four years I suffered misery
with terrible pains in my back and trouble with
my kidneys. The doctors thought 1 had Bright' s
disease. Many a time 1 had to give up work,
and continually crew worse, and when I sat or
stooped down I had to he helped up. At last
nau to give up ana go 10 ueu mm remain six long
weeks. It was then 1 began to take Hood's
Harsaparilla, and I soon found that it was help
ing me although I had been told nothing would
help mo and thought
I Would Have to Die.
But I continued to improve till I am now In per
fect health and havo as good a back as any man
In town. Today I can do a good day's work,
and u uly feel that Hood's Harsaparllla was a
Cod-send to mo. I am as sound aa tho best dol-
lar that was over made, and I want this state
ment put Into print so that ev erybody can seo
what good it did mo. Every word of the abovo
can bo proved by a score of people here who
know how 1 suffered and how I have been
cured. I took but six bottles. I think no one
can praise Hood's Sarsaparllla aa much as it
will praise Itself." John Saxton, Scottdale,
