What True Merit Will Do. Tho unprecedented sale of Bosohee's G«rman Syrup within a few years, has astonished ' tbe world . It . is without doubt th6 safest aud best remedy ever discovered 'for tho speedy and; effectual euro of Coughs, Colds and the 'severest Lung troubles. It; acts on an entirely different' prluolple from the' UKUU! pro- soriptidus given by physlomns, as it does not dry'up a opuga and' leave tbe disease still in the system, but on tbe contrary remove's' the pause of the trouble, heals the parts- affected and leaves thorn in a purely healthy condition. A botile kept in the house for use when the disease* make tbeir .appearance, will save doctor's bills aud a long f pell of serious Illness. A trial will convince you of these facts.

Finally, on the recommendation of YT. J. Buntley, dinggUt, ot Lockport, I wa»' Induced to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. And now, after having tnken twelve bottles, within j the dart twelve months, the scrofulous eruptions have entirely ceased, and the abscesses have all beautifully less.' I do not know whatlt may have done for others, but I do know that in niy ease, Hood's Barsaparlila has proved an effective specific indeed.
