JAYNE'S EXPECTORANT stands alone. Its path to the public oonlideuoe has been paved, uot with puffs, but CURES} and the vouchers for its efficacy include an array of names which, for character and respectability, cannot be surpassed in this country. DR. JAYNE, being Wrosolf a Physician, does not profess to perform physical irapos?ibilit?es ; but he does assert, and is borne out by well authenticated facts, that in all DISEASES OF THE LUNGS AND CHEST, which are susceptible of cure with out miraculous interference, his EXPECIORAN1 will restore the patient to health. No other medi cine will remove the mucus or pus from the throat so thoroughly as this. It eflectually looses the coagula ted masses from the membrane which lines the tran chia, and at every cough the patient will bring up portions of the disengaged matter. In all complaints ot the pulmonary organs, even where nature scems^ to he making no effort to throw offthe disease, JAYNE S EXPECTORANT imparts vigor to the machinery of I respiration, and enables them to disencumber them I selves of obstructions which had impeded their free operation. It has restored hundreds toporfcct health, ! after their physicians had given them up as incurable with CONSUMPTION. Coughs, Colds, Asthma, In fluenza, Bronchitis, Whooping Cough, in a word, all I diseases of a PULMONARY nature yield to this pre paration, if properly administered. Rev. J. S. Maginnis, Professor in Hamilton (N. Y.) Literary and Theological Seminary, says : u I would not be without Dr. Jayne's Medicincs in my family for any consideration. I have found them successful in cases where all other means hav failed." Mr. Nicholas Harris, corncr of Front and Lombard streets Philadelphia, was cured of COUGH, ASTH MA, and BLEEDING OF TIIE LUNGS, under which he labored for many years Rev. Ira M. Allen, of New York city, says:?", have used Jayne's Expectorant, and have more confi dence in it than ALL OTHER MEDICINES of the kind," Rev. Wm. Laws, Modcsttown, Va. says:?"I have used your expectorant, and found it an excellent med icine lor PULMONARY DISEASES." Daniel Henshaw, Esq. Editor of the Lynn (Mass.) Record, says:?" Jayne's Expectorant is a very valu able Syrup, which we have lately used with good ef fect in stopping a Cough and loosening and breaking up a COLO." Rev. Arthur R Bradford, of Darlington, Pa., says that it cured his son of CROUP in a few minutes. The Bangor (Maine) Journal says:?"A trial of Jayne's Expectorant will satisfy all that it is a speedy cure for Coughs, Colds, Influenza, Asthma, Hoarse ness, and all kinds of Pulmonary affections." Mr. Ebcnezcr Webster, of Providcnce, (R. I.) was cured of a severe ASTHMA, by using two bottles. Rev. Simeon Seiglried, was cured of Influenza, a Hoarseness, and a hard dry Cough by one bottle. Rev. Dr.'Babcock, of Poughkeepsie, says that knowing Dr. Jayne to be a regular Physician, and having used his medicines personally and in his fa mily, does not hesitate to commend them as safe and eminently useful medicincs, and a valuable ad dition to our Materia Medica. Rev. John Segur of Lambertsville, New Jersey, who was suffering with a hoarseness and soreness of I the lungs and throat, and a^suffocatiug Asthma, was ' cured by oi]e bottle. Mr. J. L. Simpkins says that it cured his wife of CONSUMPTION, and one of his children of the WHOOPING COUGH. Rev. Jonathan Going, D. D. President of Granville College, Ohio, says: '"He was laboring under a se vere COLD, COUGH and HOARSENESS, and that his difficulty of breathing was so great that lie felt himself ill imminent danger of immediate suflocation, but was perfectly cured by using this Expectorant." Mrs. Dllks, of Salem N. J. was cured of Asthma of I 20 years standing, by using two bottles of this medi cine. Mrs. Ward, also of Salem, was cured of the same complaint by tive bottles. Dr. Hamilton of St. James, S. C. was greatly affected by a Cough, Hoarse ness, and soreness of the Lungs, and on using a bottle of this medicine found permanent relief." Lewis C. Levin, the distinguished advocate of Temperence, stated at a meeting of upwards of three thousand persons, that he should not have been able to address them, but for the use of 'Jayne's Expecto rant' He said that he hud been laboring under a hoarseness and severe oppression of the chest, that he had purchased some of the Expectorant tho day be fore, which .had relieved him in a few hours, and he found himself, conti ary tohiaown expectation,able to address the multitude. The proprietor could add hundreds of other na-nes equally respectable, who recommend JAYNE'S EX PECTORANT as superior to ALL OTHER MEDI CINES for the cure of all the various Pulmonary dis Prepared and sold by Dr. D. JAYNE, No. 20 South THIRD Street, Philadelphia, where all his other valuable preparations may be obtained. NO EXCUSE FOR A BALD HEAD. Since the important discovery of DR. JAYNE'S HAIR TONIC, every one may, if he chooscs, pre serve his hair from falling off, or if already bald may with certainty have his hair restored again by a faith ful and persevering application of this valuable HAIR TONIC. . Please to read without prejudice the following communication from the Philadelphia Sun, which in addition to hundreds of others equally respectable should remove the doubts of every reasonable per son of the uniform and singular cfticacy ol JAYNE'S HAIR TONIC: We publish the following letter from a sense of | duty to the public. It is just sucli a letter as we should have expected from such a source. We know Dr. Quigly personally, and there is no man in the country, whose opinion is entitled to more respect.? He is on all subjects honest and sincere, and his high character as a Physician can be attested by the first | medical men in this city.?Philnd. Sun. Sluphtrdstown, ' <*? Oct. 10, 1843. Dear Sir :?You inquire of me whether I have used your Hair Tonic, and the effects. Several years ago my hair began to fall rapidly from the scalp, and I had tho prospoct of premature baldness. During several years I used various pre- , parations recommended for the hair, from which I derived no benefit. At length a friend recommended your Hair Tonic. I used three or four bottles no cording to the printed directions, and at the end of | six months, my hair was thick set, and since iU ten dency to turn grey was arrested. I have never before given a certificate, recommend ing patent medicines, which indiscriminately used, as they often arc, do much injury, but in a ease like the present, where I know the article to be beneficial and that it can do no harm, I have no scruples in stating facts within my own knowledge.

Hover: Sir: I have made use of your Black Ink sufficiently long to ascertain that it possesses all the desirable qualities which are neces sary in the employment of steel pens more fully than any kind of ink that 1 had previously essayed, and I have Rot pretty well through the catalogue. I have not taken the trouble to test it chemically, as this has been already done by others whose certificates are as satisfactory to me as though the experiments had been made by myself. THOMAS P. JONES. Washington, Jan. 23, 1843. Mr. Joseph E Hover: Sir: I have examined and used part of the specimens of ink which you left with me, and am prepared to speak favorably of them both. Since J began to use metalic pens, 1 have never been able to obtain ink which would not more or less corrode, and speedily destroy them. Yours appears to be free from every corrosive ingredient. The marking ink possesses, in my opinion, all the qualities which are requisite to give to the article a very hitch character. Yours, respectfully, nov 7 F.
