OKN'tlxa TOVVNSEND'S SARSPAR1LLA. THEREbeing ARE A CLASS OF SPECULATORS who both ignor.mt and unprincipled, seize upon anything by which they ean delude the public and fill their own pockcts. The great Sarsaparilla root as a cure for all forms of diseases, lias induced mnnv of these men to to attempt to palm off some compound which they label as an extract of the pure Honduras Sarsaparilla The country lias been flooded with these compounds, and many have been in duced to purchase them, but the-"only result has been cruel disappointment. A tfiin, washy moss of stuff, cooked up without any regard to the effect upon the patient, can but bringdown upon the manufacturers the condemnation of a deceived public. One of these Humbugs, Which has had a more extensive sale than most., fats Just exploded. e refer to that notorious sour fermenting compound of S P. Townsend's. He has been compelled to flit the business, and his article is now thrown into the market at any price to get rid of it. If any desires proof of thisweouly ask them to step into any wholesale drug store auden ouire for S. P. Townsend's Sarsaparilla. The day for creating a reputation for a medicine by newspaper putting aud forged certificates, is passed, and it is onlv those of real worth IIV ask mih) One Trial. The person who purchases a bcttle of this Sarsaparilla finds that he has a honey syrup, prepared by a scientific man—iu the manufac ture of which the highest knowledge of chem ist rv, and the latest discoveries of the arts, have all been brought into requisition. I'renarutl in this way it is made the most poweiful agent iu the Cure for Innumerable Diseases. And the reason why we hear commendations upon every side, from men, women and children. If you have used ton, fifteen or twenty bot tles ol Sarsaparilla, made by S. P. Townsend and others, and found no relief and even injury draw not the unreasonable and unjust conclu sion that the Genuine Sarsaparilla, Prepared by Old Dr Jacob Townsend, is also worthless, or p. similar article.

It is doubly valual.de coming from this source—for it is only the retail dealers who become acquainted with'the character of a med icine. CARD TO TIIE PUBLIC. We, the undersigned, physicians and drug gists of New York, Brooklyn and Williams burg. having seen uu advertisement. aildresHed to us and others who sell Sarsaparilla bv S. P. Townsend which is calculated to bring us and our business into reproach, feel called upon to state our personal views of the real merits of the two Townsend's preferred by the parties to the original Sarsa parilla we have nothing to do, and leave them to settle that matter between themselves, llut since we are called "swindlers," and branded with the declaration of being willing "to com mit any fraud for money" and as "men having no honor, and should not be trusted," we feel that wo ought to give the reason w hy we prefer to sell Old Dr, Jacob Townsend's Sarsaparilla to Mr. S. P. Townsend's, and leave the public to judge whether wo are "deceivers and swin dlers," and not to bo trusted by so doing. First, our experience and observation have satisfied us that the Old Doctor's Sarsaparilla possesses more medical power and virtue than S, P. Townsend's, and the testimony of the public would seem to be the same, and we always make it a matter of conscience and duty when two articles bearing the same name and pur porting to cure the same disease are in market to state that which wo consider the best. The Fact that S. P. Townsend's Sarsaparilla has greatly soured, fermented and exploded the bottles, thereby giving groat dissatisfaction to our cus tomers, has influenced us in our preference of the Old Doctor's preparation. We do not feel ourselves called upon to decide the true merits of either article as standard preparations, but when asked by our customers for our opinions which we believe under all circumstances to be the best wo should not hesitate in giving our preference in favor of Old Dr. Jacob Town sends. With these views we leave the public to decide if we are not justified in giving the Old Doctor's preparation that preference which it seems to deserve as a medicinal compound, as well as the choice of the people so univer sally manifested in its favor. We have given the names of Sixty Drui^qista, among whom are Starr.No. Sij-tccn educated Physicians all disinterested persons, and who of all the world besides are best qualified to judge of the merits of a medicine aud who, Near have and never will recommend any article unless they prov^Jfeio be good, now Voluntarily give their testimony in favor of Old Dr. Jacob's Sar sapariila.

It is useless to produce further testimony in favor of thfa great remedy. It has only to be tried and proved to coi* tiucc the public of its superior eQtcacy, Notice to Females. John Bull's Sarsaparilla is one of the greatest femala medicines now in existence. In those numerous casea where the constitution is debilitated, the nervous energy is lessened, when the efforts of nature are weak and delirieiit, or are profuse and overwrought, when the fsice is Use Sarsaparilla. Of tho claims pale of this Medicine, we would see far nnt| cdorless, the strength feeble and yii-lding, the spirit trou bhil and depressed, the health broken, mind shaken, and Consequently the happiness destroyed—then Bull's Sarsa» pari)hi is a sovereign remedy. Jt assists nature in the per** feirmanec of her duty, braces the whole system, renews permanently the uatural energies, remove# obstructions,^ cheeks excesses, creates pure and healthy blood, and imparts health and happiness. Were ladies generally to adopt tho less suffering, disease and unbappiness anions tbvw tluui now i \i.-ts, health would take thn place of disease, the rosy cheek would succeed tha pallid face we should have smiles instead of tears, and per haps a happy long life instead of one cut short by disease, or made miserable by continued suffering and affliction. At that critical period termed the u turn of life," which is, Often attended with so mm danger, Hull's Sarsaparilla is fbuud to exert a most Wnetu ial cllW-t. All ladies approach* ing this crisis, should be apprised of this fact and avail themselves of this valuable irdieiuc. A BEAUTIFUL CLEAR SKIN. How we all admire a clear, Wautiful, white skin, and rosy colored cheek.

Hull's Stirsojmrilla pos-a is the best Cosmetic known. It Wautifies the skin by removing every particle of morhid anil diseased matter from the blood, muking it pure, heaU thy and vigorous, giving activity to every minute vessel, and changing the yellow and dark cotinlenance to the bloom and freshness of youth.
