ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE.'
Philadklphia, April 9, 1846.
Last August a year, I caught a violent cofd, in
consequence of getting wet in a shower of rain.
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that I should soon get rid of it.
On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, then pain in my breast and
between my shoulders. I now suffered great op
pression from the great secretion of purulent mat
ter in my lungs. 1 became greatly alarmed ; and
my friends considered my situation extremely
critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic
fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as
* chi d, and at night the sweat literally poured off
me ! I his was my condition vhen I commenced
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and
Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much benefit that I resolved to con
tinue it. It is now six months since I ceased using
the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. I
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lur.gs,

residing distant from this city, who nnywishto

THESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com
pound, and are ottered to the public from
principle of benevolence, undo the fullest convic
tion that they will be found a safe and sovereign
emedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium
ihantly tested, not only by some of the most re
pectnhle families and physicians in the State of
<outh Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
nony as to their decided excellence, but also by the
proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
incident to that stubborn and distressing disease.
They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to
.most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which
accompany each bottle, m:iy be given with entire
safety to an infant in the month.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit
In the year 1838, when the cholera was in
Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant
to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack
ed with must violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a
short time, if medical aid could not lie procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine gla-<s full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing
him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I
then continued to give it in small doses, from two to
three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happv re
covery. Since then I have Deen using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera moibus, cholera
infantum, diarrhma and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
JOS. D. JENKINS.
Bluff/on, S. G., 1846.
It is with feelings of gratitude an well as pleasure
that I take this method of giving my testimony of
the great estimation which I entertain for your in
valuable compound. In justice not only to the me
dicine, but for the benefit of others who may be suf
fering from the same malady, Dyspepsia, with which
I was for years afflicted, I feel it a duty incumbent
on me to state that I am now restored to perfect
health. When I commenced taking the Colleton
Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in
digestion was jo great that a cure was looked upon
as nlmoEt hopeless. After taking it regularly and
peiseveringly for some lime, my strength and di
gestive powers were entirely restored. I have never
tuken a single dose of any other medicine for more
than five years past. I can now eat the richest food
without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have
also used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for
cholera i nfuntum, cholera morbus, general debility,
and as a tonic afterJever, with great success As u
family .medicine I ucem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommcnd it.

Dr Christie''s Galvanic /tings and Mag
THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost universal approbation of the meJica
profession of Great Britain, comprises an entirel) 1
new application of Galvanism, aa a remedial agent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, &c. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Gal van
ism applied without any of the objections which are
inseparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been ucsd with entire
success in all oases ef rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applymg to the head, fare., or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
hcadache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramjp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, paina in the
cheat and side, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tl.ey
have been been found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to be be belived, and as a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.
The rings are of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
be worn by the mest delicate female without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
The Galvanic Belts, Bracelets, Bands,Gar
ters, Necklaces, &c. Alc. These articles are
adapted to the waist, arm*, wrists, limbs, ankles, or
any part of the body with perfect convenience. The
Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in
cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener
ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness ; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy,
epileptic fits, and similar complaints. |
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications.
This composition has bean pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi
nary discoveries of modern science. Full explana
tions and directions accompany it. The combined
inventions arc in every way perfectly harmless; they
are at prices within reach of all, and the discoverer
only requests a f:iir trial, aB a test of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.
Christie's Galvanic Strenothenino Plas
ters.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Rings and their modifications, acting upon the same
principle, but having the advantage of more local ap
plication- They are-confidently recomended as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute or chronic ; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the
chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections,
and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are of the
most decided character, and they have often been
used with complete success. They are also of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness af the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
those complaints to which females are especially li
able. As an effectual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and other cau
fid ft Cfl ttt.il J a ill La w?J?w*?y, an 1
a preventive fpr colds, and in all affections of the
chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas

CfJ* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
