now admitted by tho medical profession as a
fundamental principle of bealing science. It
is wisely provided by tbo human economy that
whenever anything is wrong in the physical
system tho natural forcea of tho body are
brought to bear to expel the disease. Tho
great aim, therefore, is to strengthen the na?
tural powers. This has been kept in view by
the skilir<il compounders of HOSTETTER'S

fresh vitality to all tho organs of the body
The effect of this medicine upon thc stomach,

drugging and try tho BITTERS, soon feels as
if ho had taken a new lease of life, and as he
continues the use of tho article, ho is over?
joyed to find tho streams of health coursing
through bia frame. It ia prepared with groat
caro, and its componeut parts are entirely
vegetable. It is free from the objections so
often urged against preparations of the kind.
As a MEDICAL AGENT it has no equal, while
its pleasing flavor and healthful effect* havo
made it a general favorite It is free from all
properties calculated to impair tho system,
and ita operations are at once mild, soothing
and efficient. All who have used HOSTET?

Even thoae who aro in tho enjoyment of per?

**&Stmi^BWW^P affections anddiuordora
which were aggravated by the scrofulous con?
tamination until they were painfully afflicting,
have been radically cured in such great num?
bers in almost every section of the country,
that the public scarcely need to be informed of
its virtues or uses.
Serofnlons poison is one of the moat destruc?
tive enemies of our race. Often, thia unseen
and unfelt tenant of tho organism undermines
ttio constitution, and invites the attack of en?
feebling cr fatal diseases, without exciting a
suspicion of ita presenco. Again, it seems to
breed infection throughout the body and then,
ou some favorable occasion, rapidly develop
into one or other of ita hideous forms, either
on thc surface or among the vitals. In the
latter, tubercles may bo auddonlv deposited in
the lung? or heart, or tumors formed in the
liver, or it shows its presence by eruptions on
the Bichl, or foul nloerations on some part of
the boflv. Hence the occasional uso of a bottle
of this* SARSAPARILLA is advisable, even
when no adivo symptoms of disease appear.

ease, Fits, Epilepsy, Neuralgia and the varioua
Ulcerous affections of the muscular and nerv?
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercuruil Diseases
are cured by it, though along time is required
for subduing these obstinate maladies by any
medicine. But long continued nwo of thia me?
dicine will cure the complaint. I^eucorrhoa or
Whites, Uterine Ulcerations, and renuile Dis?
eases, are oominonly soon relieved and ulti?
mately cured by its purifying and invigorating
effect.* Minute directions in each case aro found
