INDIAN QUEEN VEGETABLE SUGAR
jt-The Great Popidar Medicine of the day
Vast amount used per month The numerous
and wonderful cures it effects Its magical ef
fect upon Bilious Fevers, and Fever and
Ague Great Excitement among the Doctors 1!
THE INDIA. QCEEit VEGETABLE STCAK COATED
RE now admitted on all hands to be the
f , . i ti j?
most extraordinary ana vaiuaoie medicine
in general use. It not only acts as a spe
cific upon the bilious and typhus fevers,
chills and lever, and lever and ague ol the
West and South b-it in all diseases of de
bility, weak stomach, indigestion, loss of
appetite, impurity of the blood, and all dis
eases prevalent in a western and southern
climate. Their great powea constats in
their peculiar effect upon all the organs of
the system, and the rapid formation of new
and rich blood which they produce, .' In
this lies the great secret of their success.
They are mild and pleasant in their action
but searching and permanent in their ef
fect peneti ating the remotest recesses of
the system by their ready absorption into
the blood, thereby infusing a new supply of
itality and nervous power into all the ma
chinery of life. The extensive popularity
they have acquired all over the West and
South ensures sales of at least
50.000 Boxes per Month.
And we find it difficult with our large force
of hands, and the late improvements in ma
chinery which we have adopted, to manu
facture them fast enough to supply the de
mand in thirteen Western and southern
States! One large manufactory is con
stantly engaged in preparing the various
a . 1 . r 11 .
concemraieu extracts oi wmcn mey are
composed. From the best information we
can obtain from our 8,000 selling agents,
and hosts of attentive correspondents in all
parts of the country, our medicine cures,
per month, not less than 10,000 cases of fe
ver and ague, one thousand of which have
resisted all other treatment;
4,500 cases of bilious fever,
5,300 do of weaknes and general debility,
2,500 do of various chronic diseases,
2,000 do of weak stomach & loss of appetite,
800 do of dyspepsia,
1 ,200 do of rheumatism,
1,000 do of female complaints,
1,200 do of ague cake, or enlarged spleen,
1,500 do of liver complaint,
500 do rf scarlet fever,
400 do of typhus fever,
300 do putrid sore throptj
This must appear almost incredible, but the
numerous letters from physicians, agents, and
those who use the medicine, from all the Wes
tern and Southwestern States, satisfy us that this
is a moderate estimate, and that our medicine is
rapidly taking the place of the various svear
coated counterfeits which are afloat, and the nu
merous tonic mixtures, made wholly of qvinittr,
which nrp ImimM unnn (ho mi)IIi Kv mantifsie-
turers who lire, nofo'.'y knows where!

Qeen Vegetable Pills are of two kinds the
Cathartic and the Tonic. The Tonic pills
are peculiarly adapted to the quick and
permanent cure of fever and ague, torpor
of the liver, and general debility. It is in
fever and ague, chill fever, &, that they a
chieve their greatest triumphs. It rarely
requires over twelve hours, or more than"
half a box of the tonic pills, to break the
chills and effect a permanent cure which
is rarely the case with the tonic mixtures
of quinine, hawked about the country by
ignorant pretenders. Those who take the
tonic pills once, will never forsake them.
V ho can wonder then that a medicine
of such extensive popularity and extraordi
nary virtues should cause
Great Excitement among the Doctors !!
the preiudices of physicians against
their use are at last given way to- the play
of reason, and the convictions of ever day
experience which they derive from their
patients and friends who use them.
Doctors are now almost every day sen

To Dr. Brase. St Lonis. JIo.. Dear Su-I
have to inform you that I have used all our Ton
ic rills, and therefore pray you to send mo an
other supply immediately, as there is much fe
ver and ague within the bounds of my practice
and I hereby know how to satisfy and cure my
patients without them.
I have thoroughly tested your Tonic pills and
in my practice through this eountry, not only in
chills and fever, but in real typhoid fever, & have

now find myself at a great loss to get along with

the people of the W.est and South, and I am

more diseases than you recommend them for.
