GERMAN HORSE POWDER !
For all Diseases to which a Horse is Liable.
THE various diseases to which that no?
ble and useful animal, the horse, is
subject, and the little knowledge that is
known of them by farriers and ignorant
ostlers, hare occasioned many remedies to
be offered to tho public under differont
forms, with high encomiums, and sanc?
tioned by dignified names. Some of those
aro injurious; others, at best, of little use,
and many entirely worthless, and do not
moet tho want. * A good medicine, free
from objections of this kind, has long been
desired by many gentlemen who have va?
luable horses. We therefore offer the only
good medicino-tho true " (5 ERM AN
[ORSE POWDER," which has proved so
efficacious in all tho diseases, lt is pre?
pared from the original recipe of Dr. Hei
nitsh, of Germany. Its extraordinary vir?
tues aro attested to by thousands, and for
fifty years has stood, and still stands, firsl
in the estimation of all experienced farm?
ers and agriculturists as the best medicine
for the norse. It is recommended for
horses foundered by eating to excess or
drinking cold water "when heated, to such
as have symptoms of glanders or aro ex
?iosed to the infection by being with other
lorses, for indigestion, distemper, hide?
bound, drowsiness, loss of appetite, inward
sprains, debility, wasting of flesh, sore
eves, swelled legs, grease, mange, surfeit,
old coughs, for exhaustion from work. It
carries ofi' all foul humors, purifies and
oools thc blood, and prevents horses be?
coming stiff and foundered. It is a stimu?
lus for weak stomach?, and renders the
limbs and skin soft and linc, giving a
smooth coat to the hair. Ask for "Hci
nitsh's German Horse Powder." For sale
