No peraoa can feel well whila a costive habit of
body prevail! ; besides it soon generate serious and
often fatal diseases, which might have bren aroided
by the timely and judicious use of a good purRatire.
This is alike true of Colds, Feierish symptoms, and
Bilious derangement. They all tend to become or
produce the deep seated and formidable distempers
which load the hearse ail over the land. Henc d a
reliable family physic is of the first importance to
the publie health, and this Pill has been perfected
with consummate skill to meet that demand. An
xtensire trial of its virtue by Physicians, Profes
sors, and Patients, has shown results surpassing
any thing hitherto known of any medicine. Cure
have been effected beyond belief, were they not sub
stantiated by persons of such exalted position and
haractcr as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
. Among the manr eminent gentlemen who hnv
testified In favor of these Pills, nt may mention :
)H. A. A. IlATES, Annlytieal Chemist, of Boston,
nd State Asssyer of Massachusetts, whose high
professional character is endorsed by the
Hon. EnwAriD Everett, Senator of the V. 8.
ltoHEKT C. WiNTiiuop, Ex-Speaker of the House
Abbott La wrbncb, Minister Plen. to England,

Also, Da. J. It. Chilton, Practical Chemist, of
New York City, endorsed by
Hon. W. L. Marcy, Secretary of State.
AVm. D. Astor, tho richest man In America.

Hotel, and others.
Did space permit, we could give many hundred
certificate, from all part where the Pill have
been used, but evidence even more convincing than
tho experience of eminent public men I found
In their effect upon trial.
These Pills, the result of long investigation and
study, are offered to ths publie as tha best and
most complete which the present state of medicaf
eience can afford. They are compounded not or
the drugo themselves, but of the medicinal virtues
only of 'Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical
roccss iu a itate of purity, and couibincd tugcther
i such a manner as to insure the best results. This
system of composition for medicines has been found
iu the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by any process. Th reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by tho old modo of composition, ev
ery medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi
vidual virtue only that Is dchired for tho curutiv
effect is present. All tho inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed arc left behind, the
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is
(elf-evident the effects should prove s they hav
proved mors purely remedial, and the Pills a surer,
more powerful antidote to discoso thou any other
medicine known to the world.
A it 1 frequently expedient that my medicine
liould betaken under tho counsel of an attending
Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a
remedy without knowing its composition, I have
supplied the accurate Formula) by which both my
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of
Practitioners In the United States and British Amer
ican Provinces. If however there should be any

promptly forwarded by mail to hi address.

The composition of my preparation is laid open
to all men, and all who are competent to judge on
the tuhject freely acknowledge their conviction
of their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral wa
pronounced by icicntifio men to be a wonderful
medicine before its effects were known. Mnny em
inent Physicians have declared the same thing of
tny Pill, and even moro confidently, and are will
