We endorse the Express, in tho most

Mi:iiic.w,. Dr. Purand, is in our
at the Washhiglon Hall. Those afflicted
who desire his services, cm see him at that
place. lie has the reputation of a physi
cian of great skiH. We quote the follow
ing from t.!u! Zanovi!!o Aurora :
"Dr. W. V. D.iraiid has placed in our
hands a certificate signed by Samuel I'ar
stow, a well known and highly respectable
citizen of Washington township, in this
county, which sp:"..ks volumes in favor of
Dr. D.'s skill in the trea'metit of disease
In conversation with M. Darstow, we arc
informed that he has two children, one four
and the other nine years of age, who have
been afflicted from birth with an inability
to walk. Dr. Ihiran.l has not only cured
them, but has relieved Mr. D. of a fistula
of fourteen year? striding."
In reference lo tho genuineness of the
certificates, of cures performed by Dr. Dur
and, we clip the following from the McCon
nellsvillo Ohio L'ipnm;;u Anril 5t h :
The Dr. has exhibited to us a number
of certificates which he receives, front indi
viduals who have been under his care, each
highly complimentary ihis skill ;wa phy
sician, nnd his treatment of the diseases
with which those who voluntarily gave
these testimonials were afflicted. These.
.e , f , , . ,
certificates are from persons of the highest
tandin'C and respectability.
The Zanesville Aaron of March 12th,
terms the following additional testimony :
Dr. Purand has laid upon our table the
certificates of several of his patienls, prom
inent and highly respectable ciii.ens of this
county, which speak volumes for the bene
fit which they have received from his treat
ment, as well as of llie success and popu
larity of his mode of practice in their sev
To the above, we take the liberty to
add, that we have carefully examined ma
ny of the certificates in the possession of
Dr. Purand, and find them to bare all the
marks of genuine testimonials of his won
derful skill, and nlmust unproeidonfed suc
cess. As health is above every other

of every facility by which to procure it
when lost, and to preserve it when found.
