Now, what does common sense suggest under

needs musing and strengthening; not merely for
an hour or two, to sink afterward Into a more

How ls this desirable object tobe accomplish?

unvarying experience of a quarter of a century,

Messrs, DRAKE A CO., Novembers, 1869: "Three
friends met one day in the latter part or last Sep.

correspondent was one or the three. We were all
suffering from the 'national disease'-indiges?

had tried blue pills, another extractor dandelion,
auother almost every variety or purgatives. In
fact, we had made apothecaries* shops or our in?
sides; hut nothing had done us any good. I said
I wondered If your PLANTATION BITTERS would
help us any. After some talk we concluded to
try lt, and meet again at the same place that day
month to compare notes. We did so. It was a
jovial meeting, I can tell you. We scarcely knew
one another. Each had gained flesh; each re
ported a good appetite, sound sleep, an easy
stomach and a regular habit of body. The change
was marvellous. It was agreed to report the
facts to you, and I wa-i appointed to make this
communication. You can publish it If you

CHARLESTON, May 16, 1868.
Mr. J. B. RUSSELL, one of our careful and intel?
ligent Pharmaceutists and Apothecaries, has sub?
mitted to my examination the formula for the
preparation of a Soothing Cordial prepared and
vended by l?m.
It affords me pleasure to express a favorable
opinion of its safe and efficient adaptation to the
particular cases of the diseases of children, which
ft ls designed to relieve.
E. GEDDINGS, M. D.
Having had occasion to prescribe RUSSELL'S
Soothing Cordial m severe cases or Bowel Oom
Plaints In children and delicate females, I have
een much pleased with Its effects. I consider lt
a valuable medicine in all cases, in which lt may
be advisable to avoid the use of anodyne, and par?
ticularly for family use, as lt ls perfectly safe.
W. T. WRAGG, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C., 1863.
Dear Slr-I have used your Soothing Cordial for
Diarrhea In teething children, and find lt a very
excellent preparation, lt hos a great advantage
over most preparations of the kind m containing
no Opium or Narcotic.
When these are required they can be added lu
proportions applicable to the case.
I therefore can recommend Its use In the affec?
tions for which it ls designed.
Respectfully yours, Ac.
T. L. OG1ER, M. D.
CHARLESTON. S. C.. 1868.
? certify that I have most successfuUy used
RUSSELL'S Soothing Cordial In the Summer Com?
plaints of Infants. He has fully exhibited the In?
gredients of bis remedy, and the tedious method
of preparation. I recognize the prescription
containing no anodyne whatever-as a most safe
and efficacious one in bowel affections of children.
When much pain or restlessness attends the affec?
tion, doses of Paregoric can be added to the pre
?Cribed doses of the Cordial according to the age
or the patient. The compound, though more
often, acts In an efficient manner without any ad?
dition of anodyne.
In the Diarrhoea of the aged, In increased doses,
lt ls of great value as a remedy; never disagree?
ing with the stomach-Increasing appetite, Im?
proving digestion, and acting as a slow but effi?
cient astringent agent.
W. M. FITCH, M. D.
MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C., 1868.
Jl?r. J. B. Russell :
DEAR SIR-I have used your Soothing Cordial
for children extensively in my practice, and most
cheerfully testify to its merits. I have found lt,
without an exception, to accomplish all lt claims,
and cousHer lt superior to anything In use for
Its freedom from ano lyne of any kind recom?
mends it as a perfectly safe preparation in the
hands of mothers and inexperienced nurses.
