IT is a fact, established beyond the shadow
of doubt, by the experience aid testimo
ny of the most eminent physicians, more than three
fourths of the diseases with which children are
afflicted, are caused by worms, and thousands of
children die annually from those diseases, when the
cause is either not known or attributed to so e
thing else. Various are the preparations which
have been recommendedl as remedies for worms.
but experience has proved them all more or less
ineffectual; the end however has at length bell at.
tained, and a remedy found which has never failed
to destroy worms, wherever they have existed.
This assertion is supported by the testitnony of the
most eminent physicians and respectable individu
als in the country. The remedy is
WARRANTED PURELY VEGETABLE.
It is safe in its operation, and more easily admin
istered than any other. Some of the symptoms
which indicate the etistence of the worms in the
bowels, are as follows :the countenance is pale, of a
leaden color, and suffused with occasional flushes;
the eyes are heavy and dull, the breath fetid, the
upper lip swolen, itching in the nostrils, which
cause the patient to pick his nose; the sleep is dis
turbed, the patient often awakening in great fright,
and is liable to starting and grinding the teeth; the
appetite exceedingly irregular, being sometimes
voracious, others feeble, and in some instances it is
To the following certificates numerous others
might be added, but it is believed that these are
sufficient to establish the fact that Winer's Cana
dian Vermifuge is a superior remedy for worms.

this town,designated 'J. Winer's Canadian Vermi.

tn Physicians generally now use Winer's Ca

vegetable preparation, and can always be adminis
