The Dutch revolution of the Sixteenth
century, the British revolution of the
Seventeenth century and the American
revolution of the Eighteenth century were
three logically connected stages in tho evo
lution of liberty. Their history forms threo
aerial chapters in the literature of freedom.
It Is not at all surprising, therefore, that
there should be n marked similarity in the
language ot the three people in declaring
their rights, a similarity sufficient to en
able the critics ot Thomas Jefferson to say
that he had plagiarised from the declara
tion ot the United Provinces ot the Nether
lands nnd the declaration of rights by tho
British Whigs of 1089-00. The parallel be
tween these declarations is indeed instruc
tive; they all sum up In one principle: the
natural rights of men to chooso their form

What is Scrofula
It li that Impurity lu the blood, which, accumu
lating In the glands ot tlio neck, produces un
sightly tumps or swellings which causes painful
running sotes on the arms, legs, or feet) which
dsvelopet ulcers In the eyes, cars, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness i which Is the origin
ot pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to " humors."
It Is a more formidable enemy than consumption
or cancer alone, for scrofula combines the worst
possible features of both. Being the most ancient,
It Is the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons are entirely free from it.
How can It be cured T By taking Hood's Bans
parllla, which, by the cures It has accomplished,
often when other medicines bare failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all affections of the blood
Hood's 8arsaparllU Is unequalled, and some of the
cores It has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofula In any of Its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Barsaparilta a trial.
