SHERMAN'S LOZENGES.
a: ORE THAN SIX MILLION OF BOXES OF
Dr. Sherman's Lozenges
HAVE BEEN SOLD in the United States,
Mexico, West Indies, Great Britain and
throughout the WORLD, in the Year 1843.
Hundreds and Thousands bless the day they were
induced by the persuation of a friend, to try Sher
man's Lozenges.
CONFIRMED CONSUMPTION.
. Onondaga, May 18, 1813.
Dr Sherman: Dear Sir As 1 most ardently de
sire.to benefit my fellow men, especially those who
are the unhappy victims of that dreadful disease,
Consumption, 1 will relate, for their consideration,
the astonishing effect of your Cough Lozenges.
On the night uf July 5, 1840, 1 was attacked with a
violent cough, which threatened my speedy death.
Under the advice of two very excellent physicians,
DisParkes and Rose, I was so far relieved as to
be able to ride out, and once I attempted to preach.
1 rode 20 miles, to Cazeuovia, to attend the ses
sion of our Conference, which continued about ten
days. 1 was able to attend the session every day
for a few hours by confining myself the rest of my
time to my bed. The Fathers in the Gospel told
" me I ought to arrange my wordly affairs and pre
pare for a speedy death, and consequently put me
on the superanuatcd list. Very fortunately, and 1
may say providently, 1 heard of your Lozenges,
and was prevailed upon to try them, and to my ut
ter astonishment, after taking three one day, they
allayed the violent attacks of coughing, and ena
bled me to sleep for hours together, which I could
nut do before. 1 continued to improve under their
use for several weeks, when 1 considered myself
well, and able to resume my duties as a minister
of the Gospel of our i-aviour. How many will
mx)1i enter the gloomy vale of death, that might
long be a blessing to the world and a comfort to
their friends", if they could obtain your medicines!
May Providence favor your efforts until every fam
ily in the civilized world can procure your medi
cine, which I consider the most valuable ever dis
covered by the medical faculty. In conclusion,
may God bless you and prolong your life for use
fulness to suffering humanity. Accept my inex
pressible 'gratitude, for to you and your medicine,
through Divine blessing, 1 owe my life.
- Yours, &c DARIUS ANTHONY,
Minister of the Gospel
Spitting of llloodj
Night sweats and pain in tiie Side.
Jonathan Haworth, Esq. the well known Tem
perance Lecturer, was attacked with a cold from
sleeping in damp sheets, in the winter of 1811. He
neglected it at first, but soon found it assuming a
somewhat alarming aspect, and then reported to
the various remedies usually recommended for lung
complaints. When one tiling failed he tried an
other, until he had exhausted his patience and the
whole catalogue of remedies. His cough was al
most incessant, so that he could get little or no
sleep attended with pain in his side, spitting of
blood, night sweats, and all the usual' symptoms of
Consumption. While at Rome, (N Y) he felt that
his end was nigh that in that place he must soon
end his journey of life. Providentially, a lady
who visited him advised a trial of Dr Sherman's
Cough Lozenges. He accordingly sent and got a
box, and the first dose gave him more relief than
all the other medicines he used before. By the
time he had taken one small box, he was able to
start for the city of .New York, and in three weeks'
time he was perfectly restored to his usual health.
He often announces-the fact to his hearers, when
lecturing on Temperance, and says he owes his
life to Dr Sherman's Lozenges
From the Cincinnati Daily Times, of Jan. 4th 1S14.
Couglis The variableness of the weather this :
winter has caused an unusual number of persons
to be afflicted by colds and coughs scarcely a
family has escaped; and with many, carelessness
In attending to a cough, has laid the foundation for
consumption. Our family has not escaped the
general affliction, but owing to a remedy, used
lor the first time, they were speedily cured. Sher
man's Cough Lozenges, which we were induced
to try, proved what they are represented to be, and
affected a cure in a Jew days of a troublesome
cough, which appeared so deeply seated that
eemed doubtful if -it could he removed at all. j
"We have not written the above as a puff, but as ;
facts which the community should know. G F.

WORMS CAUSE DEATH.
Thousands upon thousands have gone down to
graves from Marasmus, or a wasting away of the j
body, Epilepsy, Fits, St Vitus' Dance, Locked
Jaw, A poplexy, Mania, Dropsy in the Head, Pal
sv, Consumption, Pleurisy, Dysentery, Convul
' sums, and many other supposed apparent diseases; I
and many have suffered for years and years, and j
have been doctored for some imaginary complaint;
without the least relief; and others are still suffer
ing, when all the trouble arises from worms, and
worms alone, wnich are entirely overlooked, and
- when the proper treatment would have saved their
lives, and restored them to health. Every obser
vant mother cannot but see and admit the truth ;
but still many physicians shut their eyes to that
all-impoitant cause of disease.
Persons of all ages and sexes, from the tender
infant at the breast to old age, are all liable to be
afflicted with worms. Many a person has suffered
his whole life from them, and never suspected' it.
Different kinds of worms inhabit different parts of
the body ; but a long dissertation on their particu
lar locality, origin,&c. is superfluous and unneces
sary, long as a proper, safe and certain remedy
is at hand. That is all the public wants or cares
for. The sale of over two millions of boxes of
Sherman's Worm Lozenges, in less than fiveyears,
jilaces their reputation far above all other 'worm
inedicir.es.
Evidence of the Wonderful Virtues of Sherman's
Dr Ryan, Druggist, corner Bowery and Prince st.
was applied to for advice, by a man who looked
like a 'living skeleton : he said that in early life
he had been remarkably hearty and robust, but for
the last four years he Jiad been gradually wasting
away, till his coat would wrap twice around him.
He had suffercd.all but death, audliad been under
the care of nine different physicians, and not one
,of them had done him any good, neither could they
! tell what ailed him.
He said that his appetite .was so good that he
could hardly eat enough; he suffered from palpita
tion of the heart, pain and occasional numbness of
Jus limbs, and always lelt fatigued; .shooting pains
in apd a constant desire to pass something com
his bowels, and darting pains in different parts of
J his body; gnawing sensation at the stomach, slight
chills and flashes of heat, drowsiness and dizzi-
IIUSS, inglitlul UlUUUIb, itliu su iiiiociuiiic nao Jit;
that he had rather die than live. Dr R. told him
that he had worms, and he could cure him. The
man shook his head, and said it was impossible,
but he would try; so the Dr gave him a box of
Sherman's Worm Lozenges, and told him to take
them according to the printed directions accompa
nying them. He returned in three days, and said
he felt like a new being that the first dose bro't
away a tapeworm 70 or 80 feet long, and the sec
ond dose brought away 28 feet more. Thus two
doses of Sherman's Worm Lozenges effected a
cure; and although but a few months have elapsed,
he is now as fat and hearty as he ever was in his
life. After years of misery, swallowing enormous
quantities of medicine, and spending hundreds of
dollars, he was cured by only one 25 cent box of
these celebrated Lozenges.
Headache and Sickness. j
Palpitation of the heart, lowness of spirits, and
despondency, are immediately relieved by Shei-
mans Camphor Lozenges. Persons travelling or
attending crowded parties will find them to relieve j
all fatigue and give buoyancy to the spirits. Af-
ter a night's dissipation they dispel all those un- j
pleasant sensations so usually following the too
free liver. Temperance people will find them I
soothing to the disturbed nerves of their new con
verts. The most distressing hcadacha yields to 1
these lozenges in less than ten minutes. The
over-fatigued mind or body cannot find so great i
relief from any other article. Capt Chadwick, of
the Packet ship Wellington, J W Cochran, Esq.
tli8 inventor of the many-chambered cannon, his
excellency John Tyler, J oseph B Nones, Esq and
hundreds and thousands of others, who have ex
perienced relief from them can be referred to as to
their great value
Sherman's Poor Man's Plaster.
The best strengthening plaster in the world, and
a sovereign remedy for pr.ins, or weakness in the
back, loins, sides, breast, neck, limbs, joints, rheu
matism, lumbago, &c, &c,
Jos. W. Hoxie, Esq., who had been so afflicted
with rheumatism, as to be unable to dress himself
without assistrnce, was enabled after wearingone,
only one night, to get up alone in the morning, put
on his clothes, and callatouroffice with eyes beam
ing with joy, and his tounge pouring forth the glad
ness of his heart, at the sudden and signal relief
he had received from the best of all remedies.
David Williams, of Elizabethtown,N J. an old
Revolutionary Soldier, was so afflicted with Rheu
matism, that he could scarcely himself one of
these Plasters entirely cured him.
Mrs. George Nixon, one of the managers of the
Institution for Aged Indigent Females in the city
of New York, says the old ladies find great bene-
from these Plasters; they being very liable to pains
or weakness in the back, as well as other parts of
the body.
Mr. Geo. W. Spencer, Street Inspector, was
cured of the Piles by wearing one of these plasters
on the lower part of the spine.
Caution The great reputation these Plasters
have attained, has induced many unprincipled per
sons to get up worthless imitations. Ask for Sher
man's Poor Man's Plaster, and see that full direc
tions for use, and a fac simile of his name, thus,
A SHERMAN, M D
is on the back of each. Trust none others, or'you
cvill be deceived.

We have tried Doctor Jos. Priesley Peters ' Ye
getable Pills, and have no hesitation in pronounc
ing them the best Antibilious Medicine that we
have ever used in our families. We are acquaint
ed with several families in this city who give them
the preference to all other kinds, on account of
their mildness, and at the same time, certainty of
action. IScxo-xorl: Juxaminer.
More than ten millions of boxes of these truly
valuable Antibilious Pills have been sold in the
United States, Canadas, West Indies, Mexico, and
Texas, since the first of January, eighteen hun
dred and thirty-five.
Hundreds and thousands bless the day they were
induced by the persuasion of a friend, to try a Box
of Doctor Peters' Pills.
They are in use as a Family Medicine, and all
who have used them give them the preference to
all other kinds, on account of their being a safe,
pleasant, and easy aperient being mild in their
action at the same time; though, in their operation,
producing neither sickness, griping, nor debility.
Doct. Jos. Priestley Peters,
Deak Sir: I have used your valuable
Pills these last four years, in cases of Dyspepsia.
Liver Complaint, and Sick Head-ache, and have
found them, in a majority of cases, the most valu
able Pills 1 have ever used.
JOHN CASE, M. D.
For Sick or Nervous Head-ache, or Bilious Fe

to all other kinds.
