fffHE Great Preventive Medicine!
-JL Thoagh Wright's Indian Vegeta
ble Pills have achieved triumph upon tri
umph, ia the cure of obstinate cases V
disease, even after they had been entiref
lygiven up, and after all other remedies
had failed, yet their power of preventioa
may be justly esteemed their growing
glory! J'Storms," it is' said, ';punfy
lh air,' but storms do mischief also,
and-are so far sn evil. Were'it withTii
human power to matniain the XUecirical
equilibrium between the earth and air,
there would be no ocession for storms,
for the air would always be pure.
11 So of the human' body. . If.keptfre
fiora morbid humors, the acliod is regu
lar" and healthy. But if those humors
are allowed to accumulate, a; crisis, or,
in other words, a 6torm; will arise, which
is always more or less dangerous. 1
Wrights Indian-' Vegetable - Pills ' ara
equally well calcolateJ 16 prevent - tho
storm, or lo alJay it when it comes. But
prevention is belter than cure, besiVes
being cheaper and less troublesome..
Tho delay of a day in the commence
ment of sickness has often proved fatal,
and always renders the case more diui-
cull to manage. r ' , 1
, Let the sickness be caused by chan
ges of weather, high living, want of ex
ercise, close confinement, functional de
rangement! or anything else", the effect
upon the botly is much the sameis
equally dangerous, and is removable by
the same means.. . . T ,
""' Have yoa a co!d7 Let it not ripen in
to Consumption. Are you Dyspeptic?
Beware of the ' hypochondria. -' Two
Pills taken every other nfght on an emp
ty stomach, for a short time, will, 'in nine.
ca$ea"out of ten, cure the Dyspepsia,
and thereby drive away the legion ot
''devils blue.' For Headache, no me
dicine is superior to fVg2V Indian
Vegetable Pills. Costiveness, that pro
lific mother of disease, is caused by a
torpid stale of the liver, whiehNhesa
Pills effectually cures. By striking at
ihe root of disease, Wright's Indiaii Ve
getable Pills prevent all and cure all.
They can hardly .ever be taken aaaiss, if
used with common discretion; and wa
commend them to the use W those who
have not yet tried them. ' ?r ' '
v.- Beware of Counterfeits of ll kind;
Some ate coated with sugar; oihers are.
made to resemble in outward appearanc8

is, to purchase from irie reguia"r agents
only, "one or more of whom may-'ba
found in every village & town in the state.
