What the People Think of Hood's
When the first edition of Hood's Cook
Book was published, in 1877, referring
to public sentiment, we advisedly used
the following language : "We are aware
that there is a justifiable distrust of reme-
dies put up in patent medicine style?
owing to the worthlessness of a large
majority of such medicines." And we
further stated, by way of explanation,
that "Frequent calls over our counter for
a reliable blood purifier, alterative and
tonic, was the motive power which set
us to work to compound an article which
we could use in our own family, among
our friends, and conscientiously advise
our customers to use whom we meet face
WE ARE GLAD TO STATE
That the prejudice to which we referred
lias gradually given way, and the current
of public opinion has been changed
from one of doubt to implicit confidence
in Hood's Sarsaparilla by our honest
methods in advertising, our care to pub-
lish only truthful statements, and by
our constant care to purchase only the
choicest of roots, barks and other articles
entering into this medicine. Hood's Sar-
saparilla received its first commenda-
tions from our neighbors and citizens of
Lowell. Their good words were such as
to make calls for it in the neighboring
cities and towns ; and thus, from a small
beginning, the circuit of demand for
Has continually increased until now its
name, fame and curative power are
very widely known and recognized. It
lias made its way against the most
powerful opposition, and stands apart
from and ahead of all competitors, not
only as the best blood purifying and
tonic medicine in existence, but as the
cheapest and most economical, being
the only one which gives one hundred
doses for one dollar. Hence Hood's Sar-
saparilla may appropriately be termed
•'The People's Medicine."
The claims made regarding the curat ive
powers of Hood's Sarsaparilla, are based
entirely on what the people say it has
done for them, and not upon some
imaginative list of diseases and com-
plaints. There is not a single thing
which we claim that Hood's Sarsaparilla
will do, which it has not already accom-
plished, as will be seen by the numerous
letters published in this book, and whicli
are almost entirely from people unknown
to us, and of whom we never heard till
they, of their own accord, wrote to us to
tell what Hood's Sarsaparilla had done.
Has proven a sovereign remedy for the
most severe cases of scrofula, whether
in the form of terrible running sores or
ulcers, or in the milder form of scrofulous
humor, and for salt rheum, scald head,
boils, pimples, ringworm, and all diseases
of the blood. It has relieved the tortures
of dyspepsia, biliousness, sick headache,
indigestion, and all troubles arising from
a weak or disordered stomach. It lias

Which many people experience at certain
seasons of the year. It has cured people
who suffered greatly from that very com-
mon complaint, catarrh ; and those who
were afflicted with the pains and aches
of rheumatism have found in it positive
relief and permanent cure. What Hood's
Sarsaparilla has done, is what we claim it
will do. We submit that the statements
in this book constitute conclusive proof
that Hood's Sarsaparilla is all it is repre-
sented to be. If you suffer from any of
the diseases named, try

THE LADIES OF HIGH-STREET CHURCH, LOWELL, MASS.
REPUBLISHED BY PERMISSION, AND COPYRIGHTED,
BY C. I. HOOD & CO„ PROPRIETORS OF HOOD'S SARSAPARILLA.
"The High-Street Cook Book"' was
originally prepared and published by
the ladies of High-Street Congregational
Church, Lowell, Mass., for the purpose
of being sold at their Annual Fair. The
receipts were contributed by the ladies
themselves, some of whom have quite a
local reputation as excellent cooks and
housekeepers, and were such as they had
tried and found valuable in their own
experience. Thus the book possessed
the great advantage of being thoroughly
practical, and it is not surprising that it
was a great success. The edition pub-
lished for the Fair was soon disposed of,
and the demand continued so great that
it was thought advisable to have the
book republished. This edition, pub-
lished by Hie proprietors of Hood's Sar-
saparilla, is the result, And believing
that the circulation of so excellent a
book should not be limited, we have
decided that our edition shall he so large
thai every housekeeper in the country
who desires it may have a copy. It may
be obtained free of your druggist, or by
sending a two-cenl stamp to the pub-
lishers, C. I. HOOD& CO.. Lowell, Mass
But the value of this edition of the
High-Street Cook Book is not confined to
the receipts and hints for cooking herein
contained. The information that is given
concerning the curative value of, and
cures effected by. Hood's Sarsaparilla, is
of sufficient importance to deserve care-
ful reading and considerate attention.
"Only advertising!" you say. Verj
true. But as "only advertising." we
believe it will prove a blessing to many
a poor sufferer, who will learn from it
how others have been benefited ami how
he may he cured. Honest statements
have a right to everybody's attention.
And before you prepare to skip lightly
over the "advertising." we wish to im-
press upon your mind the fact that
every statement we make, every testi-
monial we use, will stand the closest
investigation, and even the most remark-
able cures are confirmed by conclusive
evidence. We believe Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla is doing a vast amount of good, and
we republish this boot; in Hie confident
belief that it will help on the good
work of advancing the interests of a
thoroughly honest and reliable medicine.

Scrofula and Prostration.
The severe prostration which is de-
scribed in the following testimonial is
often experienced by those who suffer
from scrofulous sores or abscesses, being
caused by the terrible drain upon the
system made by these heads of corrup-
tion. The power of Hood's Sarsaparilla
to remove the scrofula taint from the
blood, to overcome its weakening effects,
and to tone up and restore the system to
health, are also forcibly illustrated.
Mr. Samuel E. Curtis, of Quincy, Mass.,
a well-known stone-cutter, says:
" From a boy I have been troubled with
scrofula humor. During the spring and
summer of 1884 I was in a bad way, hav-
ing some of the time six or seven ab-
scesses on and about my neck. I became
so weak as to be hardly able to drag
myself about and was almost unable to
work. Most of my friends felt sure that
I was going into consumption. Very
soon after eating,
A DEATHLY FAINTNESS
would come on. I felt I must soon give
up. Every piece of work I commenced I
felt must be my last. I had tried many
so-called remedies, but with little or no
benefit. About the first of July, a friend
recommended to me Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla, he having been benefited by its use.
I got a bottle and commenced to take it
regularly, according to directions. Be-
fore I had finished the second bottle I
had another abscess come on my side,
but that one and the others soon com-
menced to heal up, and all eventually
disappeared. My general health im-
proved. I have taken about five bottles.
When I commenced, I weighed 127
pounds, now 1 weigh 145, and I feel

I can do my good day's work with as
much ease as ever I could at any period
of my life. After what flood's Sarsapa-
rilla has done for me, I feel that too much
cannot he said in its praise. It gives me
pleasure to recommend it to others, as I
feel confident in regard to its intrinsic
worth." S. E. Curtis, Quincy, Mass.

For the Children.
Thousands of children have reason to
be thankful for Mood's Sarsaparilla. as it
has proven a cure for disagreeable dis-
eases of the blood which rendered then-
lives miserable. Even infants are cured
of troublesome complaints by this medi-
cine, as the following letter will show:
" My child was born with a dry COUgh,
and at the age of eight months was taken
with inflammatory rheumatism. We had
the best medical skill in the city. His
ankles swelled greatly, and one finger
became swollen until it turned purple.
The doctor thought it would require am-
putating, and Ins life was despaired of.
Then we commenced to give him Mood's
Sarsaparilla, When in one week he showed
signs of improving. We gave him one
bottle. The COUgh and swelling disap-
peared, he gained in flesh, and is now-
well and Strong. He has not taken any
medicine for four months. We hope this
may induce others to take Hood's Sarsa-
parilla." ('. Kkmi.u.i.. Davenport. Iowa.
" I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla in
the 'spring of 1883, when I was bo weak I
could not do my work, [must confess i
had not a drop of faith in it ; but it has
made a new person of me. All I ask of
any one is to try a bottle of Hood's Sai -
saparilla and see its quick effect. Il
takes less time and quantity to show its
effect than any other preparation I ever
heard of. I would not be without it in

Mr. IT. I). Winans, whose wife's state-

that many a night, after coming home
from a hard day's work, he had to lose
most of his night's rest, caring for his
invalid wife. No medical attendance or
other medicines seemed to do her any
good. But when she began to take
Hood's Sarsaparilla, improvement began
at once. She soon rested much better
and Mr. Winans has not lost a night's
rest since. Mrs. Winans says:
" I have been in poor health several
years, and have tried many medicines
but did not receive much of any benefit
from them. 1 was advised to try Hood's
Sarsaparilla, and did so. I have now
taken nearly three bottles and have rc-
ceived more benefit from it than from
any other medicine I ever used. My
trouble being caused by indigestion, I
was very much troubled with restless-
ness dining the night, and in the morning
would get up with a very tired feeling.

A Good No vie at Home.
It was from the people of Lowell and
vicinity that Hood's Sarsaparilla received
its first words of praise and recommen-

others to use it, with uniform excellent
results, and thus the knowledge of its
curative power has become very widely
extended. We are pleased to state that
the popularity of Hood's Sarsaparilla lias
continued undiminished in our own
home, and is now, as it has been for
years, the leading and most successful
medicine for purifying the blood ami
toning and strengthening the system. It

34. Tomato and Lamb Pic.
Take the remains of a roast of lamb,
or a boiled leg of lamb, and cut up into
small pieces (fat and all), and put in a
deep dish, first a layer of bread-crumbs,
then the meat, and then either cut up
raw tomatoes or canned tomatoes, and
pepper and salt until the dish is full, then
turn in any gravy you may have left. On
the top of the dish put coarse bread
crumbs with little pieces of butter to
make a handsome crust, as you would on
scalloped oysters, and then bake for
about three-quarters of an hour. In
place of all bread-crumbs you can use
some cold cooked potatoes. Hood's Sar-
saparilla cures biliousnes and headache.
35. Spiced Tomato Beefsteak.
Take a very thick steak from the
round of beef, cut gashes into it with a
knife and fdl the holes with powdered
cracker and spices, and little bits of but-
ter, then roll up tightly and tie with a
string. Take a quart of canned tomato
in a tight sauce-pan and lay the roll of
beef into it, cover closely, and let it cook
slowly for at least two and a half or three
hours, till the meat is thoroughly done.
Then untie the roll and serve on a platter
with the tomato about it, which will then
be a thick sauce. Hood's Sarsaparilla
will purify and enrich your blood.
3d. Veal Loaf, for Lunch, Etc.
Three pounds of lean veal, boiled a lit-
tle while and chopped very fine with a
quarter pound of raw salt pork, two or
three eggs well beaten, one cup pounded
cracker, one teaspoonful pepper, one and
a half teaspoonfuls of salt. Mix well to-
gether, press it down hard in a pan, set
the pan into a meat-pan, pour water into
the outside 1 pan, set in the oven, and bake
slowly for about an hour. When cold cut
in slices. Take Hood's Sarsaparilla now.
Mince fine one cup of rare roast beef,
add one-fourth cup of dry bread-crumbs,
one-fourth of ;i small onion (grated), one
teaspoonful of chopped parsley, one-
fourth teaspoonful of pepper, one tea-
spoonful Of salt, stir in a Little good stock
and one egg (beaten). The mixture
should be as soft as you can handle it.
Heat all together, and when it cools
mould in the bowl of a spoon into egg-
shaped balls, roll in fine crumbs, and fry
a light brown, in hot lard. Make a gravy
of one cup of stock thickened with
browned flour, and flavor with one tea-
spoonful of Halford Sauce, and pour over
the Cecils. Take Hood's Sarsaparilla.
An Important Statement.
The letter which Ave give below is of
unusual importance and deserves careful
consideration, from the character and
prominence of the gentleman who writes
it. Professor Cilley has devoted his en-
tire life to teaching, and is widely known
in New England as an educator, in the
best sense of the word, and whose pupils
honor and respect him. He always has
marked influence in educational, politi-
cal, and other gatherings which he at-
tends. He says:
" I cheerfully give my experience in the
use of Hood's Sarsaparilla: I had been
TROUBLED WITH CATARRH
a long time, and had used various medi-
cines as remedies with no good results,
when, in the summer of 1881, I was so
affected by the disease that speech was
somewhat difficult, and my voice was en-
tirely unnatural. I then began to use
Hood's Sarsaparilla as a remedy, and
with such good effect, that, in a few
weeks, speech was easy, the voice nat-
ural, and my general health was much
improved. Sometimes a, return of the
disease is induced by taking cold, when I
resort at once to the use of Hood's Sar-
saparilla, which I keep by me constantly,
and always find relief. I regard Hood's
Sarsaparilla as an invaluable remedy for
catarrh, and judging by its effects upon
myself, I cannot, say too much in its
praise." J. S. Cilley, Jericho, Vt.
" I have taken Hood's Sarsaparilla for
rheumatism, and have received great
benefit from it. I cheerfully recom-
mend it as a tonic for the general sys-
tem.'' W. lUrnnsAL, Lebanon, Ohio.

ployed by J. W. Bennett, Esq., a leading
contractor ami builder of Lowell, and
is well-known as a reliable man :
" From 1">\1 1 I have been troubled
with scrofula or sail rheum humor, which
manifested itself In various disagreeable
forms, i had sores on different parts of
my body, and at one time I had a large
bunch c in my neck, which develo] ed
into a running sore and troubled me for a
long time. The most serious affection,
bowever, appeared aboul three yeai
on my leg between the k and ankle.
From an injury to the skin, which was
comparatively slight, there grew, as the
result Of a cold and humor, a running sore,
which became worse and spread till at
one time it covered a place on my leg
fully six Inches long by three or [our
inches wide. 1 was obliged to keep it
bandaged constantly, and when I changed
the bandages every night, it caused a
>i \ BSE BURS i v. BENS k HON.
The sore was also very sensitive, and
when at work a slight touch would
cause it to bleed, ami pain Intensely.
When 1 had suffered in this way about a
year. I happened to be reading of the
cures Hood's Sarsaparilla had effected in
cases similar to mine, and I decided to
give it a trial. In connection with the
Sarsaparilla. I used Hood's Olive Oint-
ment for the purpose of cooling and
soothing the soie. and it served its pur-
pose admirably. The effects of the Sar-
saparilla were also soon apparent. The
sore began to .mow less, ami in a few
months had entirely healed, leaving a
large scar which 1 suppose I shall always
have upon me. My blood seems to have
been thoroughly purified, as i bave not
been troubled by the humor in anj way
Blnce, though before l began taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla i was ^< Idom free
from it in some form, l have recommen-
ded Hood's Sarsaparilla to other people
frequently, and do now recommend it to
every one troubled with scrofula or salt
rheum, or any in need of a medicine to
purify the blood." Ai.ri i;t lis i l - .

a little butter, pepper, and salt. Bake
the tomatoes whole, then scoop out a
small hole at the top; fry the bread-
crumbs, and till the holes with this as
high as possible; then brown the toma-
toes in the oven, and take care the skin
does not break. Time, twenty-five min-
utes; sufficient for nine persons. Season-
able in August, September, and October.
43. Scalloped Tomatoes.

Is caused by carelessness in diet, high
living, eating too rapidly, too rich food,
overtaxing the stomach with indigestible
food, etc. Constipation, headache, heart-
burn, sour stomach, distress after eating,
faintness, dizziness, and capricious appe-
tite are some of the many distressing
symptoms. Persons troubled with dys-
pepsia are miserable, hopeless, confused
and depressed in mind, very irritable,
languid, and drowsy. Dyspepsia requires
careful, persistent attention, and a
remedy to throw off the causes and tone
up the digestive organs. Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla has proven just the remedy in hun-
dreds of cases.
The Best Results.
" I have had dyspepsia for several years
and was urged to try Hood's Sarsaparilla,
which I did with the very best results.
I have also been troubled with catarrh,
but since taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
have been very much better. I have
recommended it to my neighbors, and all
who have taken it speak very highly of
it." Mrs. Mary J. Ryan, 131 High
Street, Indianapolis, Ind.
Dyspepsia Entirely Cured.
" I have been troubled with dyspepsia
for many years, so that at times 1 would
despair of ever being well. Medicine did
not seem to do me any good. 1 was for a
number of years unable to work. Two
years ago Hood's Sarsaparilla was recom-
mended by a friend, and I got a bottle
and used it. It did me so much good that
I have taken several bottles, which have
cured the dyspepsia, and I now consider
myself entirely well. I cannot find words
strong enough to express satisfactorily to
myself my feeling in favor of Hood's Sar-
saparilla. it has done everything for me,
and I cheerfully recommend it. I think
it the best blood purifier in the market."
Mi:s. S. M. Beede, Marblehead, Mass.

A peculiar form of scrofula is swelling
of the glands of the neck, often forming
large bunches, which are very disagree-
able and unsightly. These bunches ac-
cumulate a quantity of foul matter, and
have a weakening and depressing effect
upon the general health. We give below
a statement from a lady who suffered
from an affection of this kind and was
greatly benefited by Hood's Sarsaparilla.
" Hood's Sarsaparilla has done for me
what the best medical treatment in this
vicinity has failed to accomplish. My
disease was an enlargement of the glands
of my neck. The gland back of my left
car was swollen as large as a hen's egg,
and the glands on my neck and collar
bone were swollen to about the same
size. I doctored and suffered for eigh-
teen long months, and could find no relief
in anything T tried. My
WHOLE GLANDULAR SYSTEM
seemed affected. I read in a book
that similar cases had been cured
by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and I decided to
try it. I almost immediately found relief,
and having now taken five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, I believe there is
nothing equal to it for diseases of this
kind. I have also used three boxes of
Hood's Vegetable Pills and Hood's Olive
Ointment with good results. T am now
able to do my work, something 1 have
not, done for li\e years. The swelling of
the glands has been reduced over half,
and I intend to keep on taking the medi-
cine till it is entirely gone. My general
health has never been better than now.
T most heartily recommend Hood's Sar-
saparilla to all Mho may be suffering, and
T know of six families who are using it
by hearing how I have been benefited bv
It. Hood's Sarsaparilla has certainly
done me great good." Mrs. William

After Scarlet Fever.
" I am glad to bear testimony to the
superior worth of Hood's Sarsaparilla.
When in the spring I felt all run down
and much debilitated, I found it just the
medicine to build me up. My wife also,
after much physical prostration, found in
its use new life and most lasting benefit.
Upon our little girl, who had been sick
with scarlet fever, its use was most mar-
velous, entirely removing the poison
from her blood and restoring her to good
health. We, therefore, feel that Hood's
Sarsaparilla deserves our highest praise
and is worthy of the high favor it holds
at the hands of the public. E. G. Strat-
ton, Veterinary Dentist, 26 Burrill Street,
We are pleased to receive the following
from a reliable and respected merchant
of Montpelicr, Vt.:
" I have been afflicted with a bowel
complaint for twenty-five years,- and as
often as one week in eight was disabled
for business. My wife was reading the
testimonials of Hood's Sarsaparilla, sup-
posing there was some truth in them.
But I told her they were bought up and
there was nothing to them. She urged
me to get a bottle, and to please her I
did so, and got the second and third.
From the time I commenced taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla, till now, I have been
free from the complaint, and feel thank-
ful that I have received effectual relief
by taking the medicine." Jos. FlSHER,
of Fisher & Colton, Montpelier, Vt.

Is one of the most prevalent, as well as
one of the most disagreeable, of diseases.
It sometimes destroys the nasal bones,
which causes loss of the sense of
smell; or, the matter dropping on the
bronchial tubes causes bronchitis, and
often pulmonary consumption. Besides
the uncomfortable and disgusting flow
from the nose, there are ringing and
bursting noises in the ears, pain on the
top of the head, and offensive breath.
Severe nervous prostration follows, with
a miserable, tired feeling generally. Ca-
tarrh is a constitutional disease, and
Hood's Sarsaparilla being a constitu-
tional remedy, acting through the blood,
effects cures in the most severe cases.
Bronchial Tubes Affected.
" I have been troubled with catarrh
about a year, causing great soreness of

Asthma or Catarrh.
"For several years I had been troubled

me. My wife wanted me to try a bottle

gist of whom I bought it that I had no
faith in it. but would give it a trial, which
I did. 1 must say T was very much bene-
fited by using it and would recommend it
very highly to any one having asthma or
catarrh." ELIAS P. Devries, firm of

"Last summer I had what the doctors
called hay fever, and used medicine for
about six weeks, but received no benefit.

use Hood's Sarsaparilla, and the relief
was so marked from the very first that I
kept on and am now entirely free from
the headaches. 1 am not like the same

on my right limb, below the knee, which
baffled the skill of my physician. Various
remedies were suggested and used, until
I had taken over twenty different kinds
of medicine, and applied as many more
externally, without apparent success.
Finally I was induced to try Hood's Sar
saparilla, and it was the first thing which
gave me any permanent benefit. I fol-
lowed the directions given on the
Wrapper about the bottle. I used two
or three bottles, and gradually recovered

What the Druggists Say about Hood's
Tiio candid opinion of reliable drug-
gists, regarding any medicine, is certainly
of greal value, because they are Ear better
able to Judge of its merits than any other
class of people. As they communicate
directly With those who use Hit- medi-
cines, being often limes requested to
give advice in regard to what should be
taken, they can observe the effects, and
judge of the curative value of every
article of this kind in the market. Thus
it is that the words of commendation
and praise for Hoods Sarsaparilla, which
we are continually receiving from drug-
gists throughout the United States, is
extremely gratifying to us. We have
space here to present only a very few
extracts from these letters, but they are
'sufficient to show the esteem in which
Hood's Sarsaparilla is held by the entire
drug tr;de of the country, it will be
observed that some of these druggists
have become so convinced of the great
value of Hood's Sarsaparilla that they
have used it themselves, and thus are
able to speak from personal experience
regarding the medicine.
"I have used Hood's Sarsaparilla in
my family for some time with good
results. J freely recommend it to all
of my friends and patrons as the best
blood purifier on earth." William S.
Gaff, Druggist, Hamilton, Ohio.
•• Last winter, after recovering from a
prolonged sickness with diphtheria, and
needing something to build me up, I took
two bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla. I
felt good results from the first dose. It
seemed to go from the top of my head to
the ends of my toes. I know it is a good
thing, and on the strength of my own
experience, 1 have sold a great deal of
Hoods Sarsaparilla. I consider it the
best in the market." (;. H. Stkatton,
of .1. W. Oolton & Stratton, Druggists,
•*l have been selling Hood's Baraapa-
rdla for some time and it is giving good
satisfaction Seeing the benefit people
derived from it, i persuaded my wife to
give it a trial. She has been troubled
with dizziness and constipation, and her
blood has been in bad order, — in fad,
she has been all run down. Hood's
Sarsaparilla is doing her a wonderful
amount of good." p, M. BALDWIN,
Druggist, Blanchester, Ohio.
•We are selling large quantities of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, and are pushing it
in preference to all others. We stop and
convince our customers that it is the
strongest and best in the market." A. B.
Lee, Druggist, 453 Grand River Avenue,
" I think a great deal of Hood's Sarsa-
parilla, and am selling large quantities
of it, considering it one of my reliable
standards." L. C. Gilson, M. D., Port-
"I can say with good faith that I never
had a word of fault found with Hood's
Sarsaparilla yet. All speak of it in the
highest terms." R. E. Knapp, M. D.
and Druggist, Ypsilanti. Mich.
"Hood's Sarsaparilla is as staple an
article with me as BUgar and tea." it. S.
Meacham, General store. Pittsford, Vt.
" We sell no article of medicine which
gives more general satisfaction than doe-
Hood's Sarsaparilla, and we sell more ot
it than of any other medicine of tin-
kind." W. Clakke, West Buxton, Me.
"We sell more of Hood's Sarsaparilla
than of any other blood purifier, and
cheerfully recommend it for purifying
the blood." skki.kv & Hart. Williams-
•• It is exceptionally my taste ami in-
clination to recommend Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla as compared with many proprietary
medicines, as the consumers are satisfied
with the curative effects of the same."
