a compound remedy, acsicned to bo the most
effectual Altcrativ that can be made. It is
a concentrated extract of Para Sarsaparilla,
so combined with other substances of still
greater alterative power as to afford an effec
tive antidoto for the diseases Sarsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that such a
remedy is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow,
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to be found of the following

motor of health, when taken in tho spring, to
expel tho foul humors which fester ' in the
bload at that season of tho vcar. Ur the time
ly cxpubion of them many rankling disorders
are nipped in tho bu.l. Multitudes can, by
tho am ot this remedy, spare ;:cmselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which tli3 system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
bursting tlirough the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores; cleanse it when you lind it is ob
'strueted and sluggish in the veins j cleanse it
Whenever it is foul, and your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and livo
longer, for cleansing tho blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well j but with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can be no
lasting health. Sooner or later somethin;'
must go wrong, and tho great machinery ol
Ufo is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
teputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been cgregiously. deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of ji'sapurilla,
or any thing else.
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a uunrt
ef Extract of Snrsapurilla for one dollar. Most
cf these have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed tho use of the various extracts cf
Sarsaparilla which flood tho market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and lias become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
wo call this compound Sarsaparii!; . and intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the
name from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And we think we have ground for
believing it has virtues which are irresistible
by the ordinary run of the diseases it is Intend
ed to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
