Catarrh Is a constitutional and not a local disease, and therefore It cannot bo cured hy local applications. It requires a constitutional remedy like Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, working through the blood, eradicates the Impurity which causes and promotes the disease, and Catarrh effects a permanent euro. Thousands of people testify to tho success of Hood's Sarsa- parllla as a remedy lor catarrh when other preparations had failed. Hood's Sarsaparilla also builds up tlie whole system, and makes you feel renewed in health and strength. Catarrh " I used Hood's Snrsaparllla for catarrh, and received great relief and benefit from It. The catarrh was very disagreeable, especially lu the winter, causing constant discharge from my nose, ringing noises in my ears, and pains ha the back of my head. Tho effect to clear .TAS. myhead hi the morning by hawking and spitting was painful. Hood's Sarsaparllla gave mo relief immediately, while in time I was entirely cured. I am never without Hood'a Sarsaparilla In my house as 1 think It is worth Its weight In gold." Mus. G. B. GIBB, 1029 Eighth Street, N. W., "Wellington, D. C.
