and has had extensive practice for more
than 30 years in treating the various dis
eases incident to this country. , He con ti
dently recommends this Plaster, from a
thorough knowledge of its virtues, to be
superior to every Plaster now in use. By
keeping up a gentle perspiration, it is ad
mirably adapted for Pains or Weakness ;
in the Breast, Side, Back or Limbs; also, ;
for the Gout, Rheumatism, Enlargement
of the Sideen, Liver Complaint and Dys- i
pepsia, and for Coughs, Golds, Asthma, j
Difficulty of Breathing, Oppression of the
Stomach, Ac. To all persons predisposed ,
to Consumption, or who are subject to vi-
olent coughs and colds, they are particular
ly recommended as they give almost im

superior to most other remedies.

The constitutions of the animals and the

In recard to disease and its cure, the a-

Dr. Bbaco-- Dear .t: During the past
summer and fall, the various' forms of bil
ious Fever were very prevtfleflt andoftea
fatal in this section of eontitry." Our Wor
thy none-such physicians, piiffi rt up with
pride and vain conceit, persisted in their
antiquated practice with that (irtifersal
panacea, rnlnmel, with such unbounded
success, that one or two, pshiC-stVu'cky
scampered oft and left their pattern with
nature and her ineffectual efforts to repair
the mischief they had done. In one" fam
ily, four cases resulted in death, irf fhe
short spare of four days ; in some esses
three or four days after the exhibition- of
calomel, great prostration, tympanitic c6ii
dition of the abdomen, and perforation of
the bowels were the result of this heroia
treatment, and to prove it so to their weep
ing friends, a post mortem examination
would reveal the fktu . After finding their
practice altogether ineffectual, they earn
to the wise conclusion to give no medicine
at all, but continue to visit their patients,
and order flaxseed tea as a drink, and a
poultice of the same applied to the bowels ;
when this failed," with sage look, and little
faith, A hearts full of apprehension, they
would confess to their friends their full con
fidence in the application of blisters from
head to foot you may guess the result.
In this dilemma and universal consterna
tion, one of your travelling agents passed
throhgh our neighborhood, and made lib
eral deposites of yourvegetable medicines,
and distributed pamphlets, and the "Strn,"
to shed a genial and benignant light upffrt
this benighted, and apparently devo

testimony to their entire and triumphant

whose love of truth and phita'nthrof) f fa'
