Other valuable ones have been added, together with much useful matter, principally relative to Hood's Sasparilla, a medicine which will positively cure all diseases arising from an impure state of the blood, --if not already so chronic as to be incurable, --in which cases it alleviates and greatly mitigates the affliction.
