Hood's Praises Itself
Kidney Troubles - Bright's

Sir. John Sexton
Ol Seottdale. Pa.
" I do think Hood's Harsaparllla is ' worth Its
wolghtin gold.' For four years I suffered misery
wiih tr-rrlMo pains in my hack and trouble with
my kidneys. Tho doctors thought 1 had Hrlght's
disease. Many a timu I he! to give mi work,
nnd continually crew worse, and when I sat or
stooped down 1 had to be helped up. At last
had lo give up and go to bed and remain six long
weeks. It was then I hepm to take Hood's
Bariaparllla, andl soon found Uut It was help,
in., me although I had been told nothing would
help mo and thought
I Would Have to Die.
But I continued to Improvo till I am now in per
fect health and havo as good a back as auy man
In town. Today I can do a good day's work,
and U uly feel that Hood's Harsuparllla was a
Uod-suud to me. 1 am as sound as the best Uoi-
lar that was ever made, and I want this state
ment put Into print so that everybody can soe
what good it did me. Every word of the above
can bo proved by a scorn of people here who
know how I suffered aud huw I have been
cured. I took but six bottles. I think no ona
can praise Hood's Harsgpsrllla as much as It
will praise Itself." Jon Haxton, Scottdale,
