Tbe manag? r won his bet. and tbe word
is new in nil resrjec ablc dictionaries.
''The'" Bi.mg expression for death,

Fever and Ague,
from which mankind suffer over a large part of
the globe, is the consequence of a diseejfls. action
ia the system, induced by the poisonous^miasm of
vegotable decay. This exhalation is evolved by
the action of aolax heat oa wet soil, an<" rises with
the watery vapor from it. While the -on is below
the hor?n this vapor lingers near the earth's sur
face, aad the virus is taken with it through the
lungs into the blood. There it acts na an irritating
poison on the internal viscera and excretiug organs
of the body. The liver become* torpid and fails to
secrete not only this virus, but also the bile front
the blood. Both the virus and the bile accumulate
in the circulation, and produce violent constitu
tional disorder. The spleen, the kidneys, and the
stomach sympathise with the liver, and become
disordered also. Finally, the instinct of our or
ganism, as if in an attempt to expel the noxions
infusion, concentrates fite whole blood of the body
ia the internal exoretories to force thorn to cast it
out. The blood leaves the surface, and rushes to
the central organs with congostive violence. This
is the Chill. But in this effort it fails. Then the
Fkvbb follows, in which the blood leaves tho cen
tral organs and rushes to the surface, as if in
another effort to expel tho irritating poison through
that other great excretory? the skin. In tnU
also it fails, and the system abandons the attempt
exhausted, and waits for the reoovery of st?mgth
to repeat the hopeless effort another day. Theao
are the fits or paroxytms of Favna and Aoub.
Such constitutional disorder will of course under
mine the health if it is not removed.
Wo have labored to find, and have round, an
Ayer's Ague Cure,
?Whioh neutralizes this malarious poison in the
blood, and simulates the liver to expel it from the
body. As it should, so it docs cure this afflicting
disorder with perfect certainty. And it does more,
or rather does what is of more service to those aub
ioct to this infection. If taken in season it oxpels
t from the system as it is absorbed, and thus keeps
those who use it free from its attacks; keeps the
system in health although exposed to the disease.
Consequently it not only cures, but protects from,
the great variety of affections which are induced
by Ulis malignant influence, snch as Remittent
Fever, Chill Fever, Dumb, or Masked Ague,
Periodical Headache, or Bilious Headache, Bilious
Fevers, Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Blindness,
Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asthma, Palpita
tions, Painful Affections of tho Spleen, Hysterics,
Colic, Paralysis, und Painful Affections of the
Stomach ana Bowels, all of which, when arising
from this cause, will be found to assume more or
less tho intermittent type. This " Aoub Cub* "
removes the cause of those dcrangomcnts, and cures
This it accomplishes by stimulating the exere
'tones to expel the virus from the system; and
these organs by degrees become habited to do this
their office of their own accord. Ilenco arises what
we term acslimataiion. Time may accomplish the
same end. but often life is not long enough, or is
sacrificed in the attempt, while this " Aoub Cvbb "
does it at once, and with safety. Wc have great
reason to believe this is a surer as well as safer
rcmcdv for the whole class of diseases which are
caused by the miasmatic infection, than any other
which has been discovered; and it has still another
important advantage to the public, which is, that
it is cheap as well as good.
