So often told of Hood’s Sarsaparilla is not a catch line only, but is absolutely true of and original with this preparation; and it is as absolutely true that it can honestly be applied only to Hood’s Sarsaparilla, which is the very best spring medicine and blood purifier.  Now, reader, prove it.  Take a bottle home and measure its contents.  You will find it to hold 100 teaspoonfuls.  Now read the directions, and you will find that the average dose for persons of different ages is less than a teaspoonful.  Thus economy and strength are peculiar to Hood’s Sarsaparilla.

 With the first bottle of Hood’s Sarsaparilla my headache entirely disappeared, and where before I could not muster up an appetite for my meals, I cannot now get enough meals to satisfy my appetite.  I am a taking my second bottle and feel like a different person.

                “I am glad my child,” says the mother to her eldest daughter, “to see you improve in health so rapidly.  Hood’s Sarsaparilla is doing wonders for you, after your long and severe illness.  You look better every day.”

                “Yes mother.  I feel so much stronger, too.  Why, I can play all the afternoon, and not feel tired.”  In fact

Hood’s Sarsaparilla

is thoroughly honest and reliable.”

“Why, mother, Susie Smith says her mother bought some Sarsaparilla last week, which the man said was just as good at Hood’s but they did not like it and have thrown it away. Can any body else make it as good as Hood’s?”

“No. As I have told you very often, Hood’s Sarsaparilla is the best. I know that it has done us much good, and I will not waste time or money trying any other.”

      Of the peculior medicinal merits of Hood’s Sarsaparilla is fully confirmed by the voluntary testimony of thousands. Peculiar in combination, proportion, and preparation of ingredients. Hood’s Sarsaparilla accomplishes cures where other preparations fail. Peculiar in the good name it has made at home, which is a “tower of strength abroad.” Peculiar in the phenomenal sales it has attained, the most popular tonic medicine and blood purifier before the public today is Hood’s Sarsaparilla

Is The Best.

          “I have been troubled for a good many years with salt rheum. My hands would itch terribly and crack open and bleed. I read that Hood’s Sarsaparilla had cured some cases that were as bad as mine, and I began taking it. Having now taken four bottles I feel well, and my hand have entirely healed. I took several medicines but Hood’s Sarsaparilla is the only one that has helped me.”
