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

the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which the nystem will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this throil"li tlie natural channels nf thn hrwlv

Yitiated blood whenever you find its impurities

reputation of accomplishing these ends, But

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 Sarsaparilla,
or any inmg else.
Durinir late years the nublic have been mis.
led by largo bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most
cf these have been frauds upon the sick, for
tney not only contain little, it any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative nroncrtics whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of the various extracts cf
Sarsaparilla which flood tho market, until the
name itself ia justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
We call this compound Sarsaparu'.;, and intend
to supply such a remedy as shui! fescue the
name from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And we think wo havo ground for
believing it has virtues which aro irresistible
