In 1S11 the opposing Russian and

the river, a short UisUim-e above Ulurge

to drive timt small body back into the

Drevented any bridgn being thrown
across the river, soon began to rttn short,
The weather became cold, nut there wis
no fuel with which to kindle fires, Un
der these circumstances the sufferings of
the men were very rreaf. f or some
time there was horseflesh, but It had to
be eaten raw, as even the tent poles had
been cut up und Ourneil. Hundreds died
daily, and their comrades had not
strength enouirh to Dury them. Disease
was consequently soon added to laitilm1,
so that when finally, on tho 8th of De
cember, peace was concluded, but 4.000
men, who are aeRcrineu as Deinir nut nv
nc akclctons with scarce sufficient
strength to stand upright, were left out
of the 30,000 who three months before
had crossed the river.

Its intrrcditiits nre o tkilftilly
combined that tlie full altcrativ
elTect of caeh is assured, and wlnle
it is so mild as to be harmlc even
to children, it i- fctill to elTectual as
to purie out from the (ystetii those
impurities and rorruptlons which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence
which prominent physicians all over
the country repose in it proves their
experience of its usefulness.
Certilicates attest in? its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
ftantly heiiijj lcceivetl, and as many
of these caes arc publicly known,
they funnel convincing evidence of
tlie superiority of this Sarsaiiarilla
over every other alterative medicine.
So jrenenlly is its superiority to any

that the best qualifies it has ever
