Is only another name for impure
blood, for no person is weak and ner
vous whose blood is perfectly pure.
When the blood is full of the germs
of disease, and lacking in the red cor
puscles which give it vitality, when it
fails to properly nourish the organ
and tissues of the body, what can you
expect but that tired feeling and ner
vousness? Of course Scrofula, Salt Rheum,
Catarrh and Rheumatism are uni
versally recognized as blood diseases,
for which Mood's Sartaparilla, as the
best blood purifier, la everywhere
acknowled the greatest remedy.
Therefore, as Hood's Sarsaparilla
cures all blood diseases, it is the best
remedy for that condition of the blood
which causes Nervousness.
It ii a false idea to think you are
curing your nervousness when you
are taking a preparation which only
quiet your nerves! It is like trying to
"drown" your sorrows in the flowing
bowl. They are sure to return.
We wish to make most imoresslye,
then, this truism,:
You cannot purify your blood by
deadeniko or QuiETrNa your nerves
with oplato, narcotio or nerve com
pounds. If you take such articlos
you are only TRiixmo with your
troubles. There is bubs to be a beao
tion which will leave you worse than
yon were before.
Why not then, take the true course,
follow the bee-line to tho state of
Lealth, purify your blood and cure
