Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is free
from its attacks, nor is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending ** from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation;" indeed,
it seems to be the rod of Him who says, "I
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only suffer from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases; conse
quently vast numbers perish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint in the
system. Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
are aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system Aye must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine we supply in
Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla,
the most effectual remedy which the medical
skill of our times can devise for this every
where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com
bined from the most active remedials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the
system from its destructive consequences.
Hence it should be employed for the cure of
not only Scrofula, but also those other affec
tions which arisu from it, such as Eruptivb
and Skin Diseases, St. Anthony's Fire,
Hose, or Erysipelas, Pimples, Pustules,
Blotches, Blains and Boils, Tumors, Tette*
and Salt Rheum, Scald Head, Ringworm,
Rheumatism, Syphilitic and Mercurial Dis
eases, Dropsy, Dyspepsia, Debility, and,
indeed, all Complaints arising from Vitia
ted or Impure Blood. The popular belief
in " impurity of the blood" is founded in truth,
for scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa
rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
without which sound health is impossible in
FOR THE SPEEDY CURE OF
Intermittent Fever, or Fever and Ague,
Remittent Fever, Cbtll Fever, Dumb
Ague, Periodical Headache, or Bilious
Headache, and Bilious Fevers, indeed
for the whole class of diseases originat
ing in biliary derangement, caused by
the Malaria of Miasmatic Countries.
We are enabled here to offer the. community a
remedy which, while it cures the above complaint*
with certainty, is still perfectly harmless in any
quantity. Such a remedy is invaluable in districts
where these afflicting disorders prevail. This
"Cure" expels the miasmatic poison of Fever
and Ague from the system, and prevents the de
velopment of the disease, if taken on the first ap
proach of its premonitory symptoms. It is not only
the best remedy ever yet discovered few this class
of complaints, but also the cheapest. The large
quantity we supply for a dollar brings it within the
reach of every body; and in bilious districts, wherp
Fever and Ague prevails, every body should
have it and use it freely both for cure and protec
tion. A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittents is that it contains no Quinine
or mineral, consequently it produces no quinism or
other injurious effects whatever upon the constitu
tion. Those cured by it are left as healthy as if
tbey had never had the disease.
Fever and Ague is not alone the consequence of
the miasmatic poison. A great variety of
ders arise from its irritation, among which are
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Headache, Blind
ness, Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asthma, Pal
pitation, Pavtful Affection of the Spleen, Hyster
ics, Pain in the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis and De
rangement of the Stomach, all of which, when
originating in this cause, put on the intermittent
type, or become periodical. This " Cuke " expels
the poison from the blood-, and consequently cures
them all alike. It is an invaluable protection tq
immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily
residing in the malarious districts. If taken occa
sionally or daily while exposed to the infection,
that will be excreted from the system, and cannot
accumulate in sufficient quantity to ripen into dis
ease. Hence it is even more valuable for protec?
tion than cure, and few will ever suffer from Inter
mittents if they avail themselves of the protection
this remedy affords.

.over any watering place in the Virginia mountains —
'Here isa SULPHUR SPRING thathas "een resorted
to for the last half century, and its virtue highly ap

the proprietor recommends it with perfect confidence.
In cases of Scrofula, Chronic Dianhoea, Dysentery,
Dyspepsia, &c, it has been tbe means of restoringa
large number of invalids. The Physicians who lived
and practiced in this neighborhood, certify that they
have used it in their practice with fine effect years a

and what is remarkable, these three different waters
come out of the same ridge, all within the grounds,
and within 200 yards of each other. There is also
fipe FREESTONE water piped into the grounds. A
nalysis of these waters sent on application.
There will be fine Music for the Ball Room, and all
the amusements found at such places. The Proprie
tor can only say that he will continue to do all in his
power, to please his visitors, both invalids and pleas
ure-seekers, and nothing shall be left undone to make
their stay pleasant and agreeable.

Stribling Springs is the first watering place reach
ed by the line of the Central Railroad, from Rich
mond, Baltimore, Washington, and Lynchburg. Vis
itors reach this place by 6 o'clock, P. M., same day,
by four horse Stages from Staunton, (13 miles.) The
road has been much improved, and the Coaches on this
