Hood's Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured
"C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. :
"Bear Sirs: I wish to testify to the great
Value of Hood's Sarsaparilla. For some time I
had been troubled with scrofula, which early
last winter assumed a very bad form.
Sores Appeared on My Face
and hands and gradually Increased ln uumber
until they readied to my shoulder. The doctors
said It was tho worst caso of scrofula they ever
saw and also went so fur as to say It was In
curable. I tried ointments and oilier remedies
but to no avail. A friend recommended Hood's
Sarsaparilla, and although I was completely dis
couraged, as a last chance I resolved to give it a
trial. After taklnn one bottle I noticed the sores
had commenced to heal. After the sixth bottle
They Were All Healed.
I continued to take It, however, until I had used
nine bottles, and now I am perfectly well."
