ANOTHER WONDERFUL CUKE!
PnitiuKLPHiA, April 9, 1846.
Last August a year, I caught a violent cold, in
conscience of getting wet in a shower ol rain.
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that 1 should soon get rid ol it.
On the contrary, however, 1 daily grew worse - a
violent cougli set in, then pain in ia"d
between my shoulders. 1 now suffered gicat op
pression from the great secrction of purulent mat
ter in my lungs. 1 became greatly alarmed, and
my friends considered my situation
critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic
fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as
a child, and at night the sweat literally poured oft
mo! This was my condition when 1
using " Thomson's Compound byrup of rar^and
Wood Naphtha." 1 procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much benefit that 1 rcsolved to con
tinue it. It is now six months since 1 ceased using
the medicine, and the cure remains perfect 1
tirmlv believe this medicine is far surenor to
everv other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs,

COLLETON BITTERS.
^l^HESL Bittcis ure purely ? vegetable com
pound, and are offered to the public from
principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic
tion that they will lie found a safe and sovoteigh
remedy lor Dyspepsia. They have been trium
phantly tented, not only by some of the must rc
?peclable families and physician* in the State of
?ioulh Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
mony 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, may 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
ters.
In the year 18<18, when die cholera was in
Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a sei vant
to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack
ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehciisiou that he would empire in a
short time, if medical aid could not l>e procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing
him st the same time into a profuse pcrapfralion. I
then continued to give it in small doses, from two to
three tea spoonslull, which resulted in a happy re
covery. Since then I have been using it coustautly
in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholcra
infantum, diarrhtsa and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
than others. 1
JUS. D. JENKINS.
Blujflun, S. G., 1816.
It is with feelings of gratitude as 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 tho mc
dicino, but for the benefit of others who may be suf
fering from the same malady, Dyspepsia, with which
I was lor years afflicted, 1 feel it a duty incuinbcut
on me to state that I am now restored to perfect
health. When I commenced taking tho Colleton
Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in
digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and
perseveringly for some lime, my strength and di
gestive powers were entirely restored. 1 have never
taken a single dose of any other medicine for moie
than five years past. I can now eat the richest fowl
without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have '
also used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for!
cholera i nfmturn, cholcra morbus, general debility,i
and as a tonic alter lever, with great success. As a'
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommend it.

Dr. Chri*tie}8 Galvanic Kings and AI?g-\
nelic Fluid? _
fllllliS remarkable invention, which ha? receive
1. tho almost universal approbation ol the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprises an eniinly
I U application of Galvanism, mia remedialI ?geut
by mean* of which the ordinary Galvanic Battene*
Electric anil Magnetic Machine* Ac. are entirely,
dispensed with, and lire mysterious power of Oalvan
iriiu applied without any of the objections winch are
inscpwable from tho general mode now in me.
Th< Galvanic Ri..RH have been ue d with entire
success in ?ll aarit-'a of rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, tits,
craino, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stillness of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia
norvmis tremors, diawness of the head, paiustn the
cheat and aide, ?encral debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In ease, of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous dmauge.nei.t of the digestive
have tKien been found equally successful. I heir is
traordinary effects upon the system must I* witnessed
to l*e be belived, and as a certain preventive tor the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.
The iinBs aie of'different prices, being made ot all
sixes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
Ih) worn by tho most delicate tcmale without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable thuu otherwise.
Tmk Galvakic Belts, Buacelktb, Daniis.Gau
Tkiis, Necklaces, &C.&C.?These articles are
adapted to tlie waist, arms, wnsls, limbs, ?ikles,or
any paitof the body with ,?rfeet convenience. Ihe
Galvanic Necklaces aro used with greater benelit
cases of bronchitis or aUections of the throat geuer
ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness ; and wilU
almost uniform success as a preventive lor appOplexy,
epileptic tits, and similar complaints.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Kings, and all their modifications.
This compobition has bceu pronounced by the
French Chemists to bo one of the mo*t extraordi
nary discoveries of modern science, hull explana
tions and directions accompany it. i he combined
I inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; they
are at prices within reach of all, and the discoverer
only requests a fair trial, m a test of their surprising
ollicacy and pcrmancut benefit.
CiiHisTib's Galvanic Strenothkninu I lab
?I BH8.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. 1 hey
are an important adjunct-to the genuine Oalvanic
Rings and their modifications, acting upon the same
principle, but having the advaiitaga of more local ap
plication* They aro confidently reeomended as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute or chrouic; in all nervous complaints, aud as a
iKtsilive remedy iu cases of pain and weakness m the
chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic aflcctions,
and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
ttuns. In spinal complaints their etlects are ol the
most decided character, aud they have often been
I used with complete .access. They are also of the
greatest advantage in panw and weakness el the
breast, and aro highly rccommeudcd for many ol
those complaints to which females aro especially li
able. As an effectual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and other cau
ses, as a certain aid in constitutional weakness, as
a preventive for colds, and in all aflcctions oftho
chest generally, the Galvauic Strengthening 1 las
| ters will be found of great and permanent advan
laBfr'-p CAUTION. The celebrity and succcss ol
theso articles have causcd them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled ,arsons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations, lie has but one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine articles can be procured, lhe only
agents for Washington are?
