A Great Victory A Terrible Case of Scrofula Cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla " In the whiter of 1879 I was attacked with Scrofula in one of the most aggravating forms. At one time I had no less than thirteen large abscesses over and a round my neck and throat, continually exuding an offensive mass of bloody matter Bjsßßstiaß to behold, and almost intolerable to endure. It is impossible to fully describe my sufferings, as the case was complicated with Chronic Catarrh. After three years of misery, having been treated by three physicians, I was worse than ever. Finally, on the recommendation of W. J. Huntley, druggist, of Lockport, I was induced to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. And now, after having taken twelve bottles, within the last twelve months, the scrofulous eruptions have entirely ceased, and the abscesses have all disappeared, except the unsightly scars, which are daily becoming'smaller by degrees, and beautifully less.' Ido not know what it may have done for others, but I do know tha...
