for their virtues. They eoniei (ii
'aed nction In tlio several ii-siinila-tlve
organs of the body, and are so
composed that obstruction within
their range can rarely withstand or
evade them. Not only do they cure
the every-day complaints ol' every
body, but also formidable and danger
ous diseases that have' ballled the best,
of human skill. While they produce
powerful effects, they arc, at the fame
time, the safest and best physic for
children. By their aperient aetion
they grliie mueh less than the common
purgatives, and never give pain when
the bowels are not inflamed. They

nnd strengthen the system by freein;;
It from the elements of weakness.
Adapted to all ages und eonditlmiH
hi nil climates, containing m il her
calomel nor any deleterious ding,
these Pills may be taken with safety
by anybody. Their sugar-coating pre
serves them ever fresh aud makes
them pleasant to take; while being
purely vegetable, no harm can arise
from their use in any quantity.
