W. r. k A.W. GREELEY, Proprietors, Bolton.
THE OBJECT of all medicine la either to pre
vent disease, or to assist Nature In restoring the
various organs of the body1 to a healthful action,
and that medicine Is certainly tbe best which
will perform those offices .thoroughly, yet mildly,
and without endangering the vital forces of the
system, by whose normal condition alone health
and strength can be preserved. Most of the Bit
ters that have heretofore been brought into pop
ular favor, have only served the purpose of tem
porarily stimulating er exciting the organs into
a condition resembling healthful action, wlthont
any remedial effect, and generally followed by a
return of the disease, or a prostration of nervous
energy more disastrous than though Nature had
been left to take Its own oourse.
Dr. Greeley's Bitters are a preparation of the
nutritive properties of the grain of the fields In
combination with the active principle of many
simple alteratives and bitter tonics, and It Is a
pleasure to the proprietors to state that its use
fulness Is being generally acknowledged by the
largely-increasing consumption In those sections
where it Is best known, and by the testimony ot
many eminent physicians, who have not only
made trial of It, but continually prescribe the
Bitters In those cases for whioh it Is recom
Consumptive patients, and others, whose con
stitutions hare become Impaired by time, or en
feebled by disease, and in whom the process of
digestion does not replace the fat and tissues of
the body as fast as they waste, will find these
Bitters at once nourishing and strengthening,
and happily adapted for their use. The great
adrantage .the Bitters possess over ordinary
stimulants usually prescribed In treating lung
complaints and kindred diseases, Is the fact that
they combine many safe and certain healing
properties in connection with the best known
Will derive great benefit from it. No unpleasant
effect will erer result from taking tho Bitters, if
the directions are followed. For those who suf
fer from nervous debility, languor, want of rest,
exhaustion, aud in all cases of weakness, the
Bitters are not equalled.
As an agreeable stomachic, it is much ad
mired; it sharpens the appetite, brightens the
Intellect, and Infuses new life and rigor. No one
who uses tbeso Bitters can be subject to an at
tack of FEVER and AGUE, or DIARRHCEA.
Of all the ills that afflict men and women, tew
are so agonizing as Dyspepsia. It is a sort of
combination of many diseases. ThankB to scionce
and Da. Gbikley, a specific has now been ob
tained. Gukilky'b Bourbon Bittirs take straight
hold of tbe disease, and begin a cure. Thou
sands of well-attested cases of cures of Dyspep
sia, Indigestion, nnd Fever and Ague, ercn of
tho most desperate kind, are in tho possession of
tho proprietors.
Not a few people, ererywhere, complain of
Weakness or Debility. This is tbe gentle hint
of nature for a little help in tho way of inrlgora
tion. The bint should not be neglected. " A
stitch In time eaves nine." Get a supply of Grix
lzy's Bourdon Bitters, tako them regularly, and
our word for it you wiil led better, live longer, bo
stronger, and think and act with very much more
satisfaction. The flitters aro a tonic, and of a
nature never beforo attaiued in any medicine. It
will make tbe weak strong, tbe desponding hope
ful, the sick well. Tor any complaint of the
Stomach, Liver, or Bowels, there is nothing com
parable with this medicine.
In America, the Liver is tbe best abused of all
tbe organs in the body. It is made tho saddle
of all other organs. Asa consequence, it is often
out of order, aud not unfrequently nearly inopera
tive. This need not be ; on tho contrary, it is quite
unnecessary. A little common sense, and n suf
ficiency of (IniELKv's Bourbon Hittkun, will keep
the Liver right, and make man a man, and wo
man, now miserable, quite happy. The Bitters
regulate and strengthen the Liver, no less than
purify it.
The lucrease of Nervous Disorders, at the pres
ent day, is one of tbe most alarming indications
of the age, or rather, would be, were it not that
a most admirable cure had been found. There
ia not a phase of Nervous disease, whatever it
may be, that these Bitters will not act upon
fivorahly, and In the mot efficient maimer. All
who are unfortunately afflicted with complaints
of this nature, or with Indigestion, or any dis
eases of the Stomach, should not fall to make use
ol Uuzsley'r Bourbon Bittrus.
Chills and Fever. In many portions of the
United States this terrible disease seizes its vic
tims sb naturally as water seelta its level. The
s j stem in a particular condition invites it. Tbe
right medicine to prevent and cure this malady,
we unhesitatingly say, is Gulklky's Bourbon
Bittsrs. It breaks up the fever, drives it from
the system, and will keep it at bay, if taken In
accordance with directions on tho bottle. The
Bitters purify and enrich the blood, and this ia
return strengthens the constitution. As an agree
able touic, these Bitters have no equal.
Greeley's Bourbon Blttors are nieeliug a sale
unparalleled in the history of popular medicines.
In all diseases ol the Stomach and Bowels they
are a sovcrDirn cure. Tho worst cases of Dys
pepsia and Indigestion j leld to the remarkable
potency of the Hitters, which is as agreeable to
the taste as it is speedy and unfailing in Its good
