F" O IC PURIFYING TUE BLOOD.
THE reputation this ex?
cellent medicino enjoys, is
dorived from ita eurea,
many of which are truly
cases of Scrofulous disease,
where thc system seetiio/l
saturated with corruption,
havo been purified and
cured by it. Scrotuloua af?
fections and disorders,
which were aggravated by
t ho scrofulous contamination until they were pain?
fully afflicting, have been radically cured iii snob
groat numbers in almost every section of the
country, that the public ecarcely need to be in?
formen of ita virtues or USCB.
Scrofulous poison is ono of tho most destructive
enemies of our race. Ofton, this uuseen and un?
felt tenant of tho organism, undermines tito con?
stitution, and invites tho attack of enfeebling cr
fatal diseases, without exciting a suspicion of its
presence. Again, it seems to breod infection
throughout the body, and then, on some favorable
occasion, rapidly develop iulu one or other of its
hideous forms, either on tho surface or among
tho vitals. In the latter, tubercles may bo sud
donly deposited in thc lungs or heart, or tumors
formod in tbe liver, or it shows its presence by
eruptions on the skin, or foul ulcerations on some
Eart of tho body. Heneo, tho occasional use of a
ottlcof this SARSAPARILLA is advisable, even
when no active symptoms of disease appear. Per?
sons afflicted with tue followingcomnlaints, gene?
rativ lind immediate relief, and, at length, cure,
by tho uso o? this SA RSA r.iRILLA : S!. Antho
tty's Fire, Rose or lyysipelas, Tetter, Sctlt Rheum,
Scold Head, Eingxeorni, Sore Eyes, Sore Ears,
and other eruptions or visible forms of Scrofulous
disease. Also, in the more concealed /omis, as
Dyspepsia, Dropsy, Heart Disease, Fits, ? /tilepsy.
Neuralgia, and tlic various Ulcerous affections of
the muscular and nervous systems.
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercurial Diseases are
eui eil by it, though a long time is required for
Bubduh'g these obstinate maladies by any medi?
cine. But long continued uso of this medicine
will obre the complaint. LeuootvIuBa or Whites,
Uterine Ulcerations, and Female Diseuses, arc
commonly soon relieved and ultimately cured by
its purifying and invigorating effect. Minut? di?
rections in each caso are fouud In our Almanac,
supplied gratis, Rheumatism and Gout, when
caused by accumulations of ex tra. icon* matters
in tho blood, yield quickly toit, asalwo Liver Com
plaints, Torpidity, Congeslion,or inflammation ot
tho Liter, and Jaundice, when arising, as they
often do, from the rankling poisons Io the blood".
This SA RSA F ARIELA .s a great restorer for
tho strength and vigor of the system. Tboae who
aro Languid and Listless, Despondent, Sleepless,
and troubled with Eerrous Apprelifntlons or
Fears, or any of tho affections symptomatic o
Weakness, will ttiid immediate relief and convinc?
ing evidonco of its restorative powor upon trial.
