Those medicines have undoubtedly per
formed more curfts of Consumption than
any other remedy known to the) Ameri
can public. They 'are compounded of
vegetablo ingredients, and contain noth
ing which can bo Injurious to the human
constitution. Other remedies advertised
at euros for Consumption, probably con
tain opium, which is a somewhat danger
ous drug In all cases, and if taken freely
by consumptive patients, it must do great
injury; for its tondoncy Is to confine the
morbid maltor in tbe system, which, of
eourso, must mako cure Impossible.
Schonck's Pulmonic Byrtip Is warranted 1
not to contain a particle of opium; It is
composed of poworful hut harmless herbs,
which act en tho Jungs, liver, stomach.
and blood, and thus correct all morbid
tscrotions, and oxpel all tbo diseased mat
ter from tbo body, These .are tbe only
means by which 'consumption can bo
oured, and as Schonck's l'ulmoula Syrup,
Sea Weed Tonic, and Mandrake Pills are
the enly medicines which operate in this
way, ills obvious thoy are the only gon j
ulne euro for Pulmonary Consumption
