ed for Consumption.
1 he auove certificate from the Druggists of
this city was handed to the proprietor about three
months alter the Cany was placed with them for
sale. 1 rey have been long and favorably known
in St, Louis, and their testimony is offered to
saiisly the public trmt this medicine possesses
merits abeve tije ordinary compounds oi the day.
M e mignt give the certificates of many of their
customers, but as this would occupy too much
space, tneirs is svbstttuted. ,
1 he action of Dr. Storms Scotch Couch Can
dy differs very materially from any other com
pound ever invented. It not only allays Bron
chial Irritation, but operating as a very mild
purge, it keeps the stomach and bowels in a
healthy condition, leaving the patient an appetite
wiiicli lew oilier cough Mixtures could impart.
We have no disposition to injure the inventor
of any particular medicine, but in justice to the
world, we will give u as our honest oninion,
formed by the observations of eleven years in
the school of medicine, that laree and frequent
draughts of nauseous liquid Compounds taken
into the stomach from time to time must have a
tendency to destroy the healthy tone of that vital
organ of the human system.
JNosucli objection can be urged against the use
of this valuable Medicated Candy, for Sugar isa
grecable both to the palalsand stomich, and we
honestly believe that this preparation will do all
tiiat medicine can do towards the relief of per
sons suffering with Colds, Coughs, Bronchitis,
Asilima, Bleeding of the Lungs, Pain in the Side
ami Breast, Diilicully of Breathing, Hoarseness,
and all other symptoms of Consumption.
