"It is an III Wind

That small ache or pain or
weakness is the "ill wind"
that directs your attention to
the necessity of purifying
your blood by taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla. Then your
whole body receives good,
for the purified blood goes
.tingling to every organ. It
is the great remedy for all
ages and both sexes.

"I had suffered from indigestion,

writes Mrs. M. J. Fagan, of 16x3
East Genesee Street, Syracuse,
N. Y. "I had severe attacks of
headache and dizziness with cold
hands and feet; everything I ate
distressed me, bowels wtrc consti
pated, and I was growing very thin
and nervous. I cannot half ex
press the bad feelings I had when
a i.-uiimiencea taking Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. I took
nine bottles of the ' Discovery ' and
several bottles of the ' Pellets.' I
commenced feeling better with the
first bottle, and kept on improving.
Now I am so greatly improved in
health my friends often speak of it.
I most heartily recommend those
medicines to all suffering as I was."
its topmost branches Tho effect
would bo the same. Where the branch
was cut off there would be half a dozen
new branches spring out, and where
a saloon was cut out would be half a
dozen new blind pics sprine tin. This
is not imagination, it is history so far
a? ued ciuud is concerned We had
a prohibition town once, and as far as
wo aro concerned tho first dose was
sufficient. Whether it was caused by
the closing of saloons or not it is a fact
that the amountof business donoin thl;
city fell off about oiid half during the
ono short year of prohibition This
was not becauso the trading public
could not got all they wanted to drink
here, but because they could go to oth
ertownsand get what they wanted in a
saloon and without sneaking around
to sonio hole-intho-wall or tolling a
lio at a drug store. You can go up
and down our streets, from ono end to
the other, and nine-tenths of the old
residents who were here during the
first siege of goody-good aro just like us
the first dose was enough. We aio
willing to admit that liquor is the
cause of much crime, but how is it
going to bu eliminated. History has
proven that in this city moro crimes
and criminals have resulted from ono
year of no saloons than in anr two nr
oven threo years of licensed saloons as
far as iduors concerned.
