"Some time ainco I took n sudden cold
and could not get rid of It. Being subject
to catarrh and bronchial trou ble I coughed
terribly. I lost my appetite and grew
poor and weak and I did not feel llko
work. I began taking Hood's Sorsapa
rllla. In a short tlmo tho cough disap
peared, I slept well, had a good appctlto
and I was bettor In every way. Last
spring I was not feeling well, I had no ap
potlto and no strength. I resorted to
Hood's Sarsaparlllit and soon felt mora
like work. My llttlo nephew was a deli
cate child and had a humor which trou
bled him so ho could not rest at night.
He has taken a few bottles of Hood's Bar-
aaparllla and now ho has a good appctlto
and Is able to sleep." Miss AnniB J.
