AMONG THE THOUSAND MEDICINES adver tised as certain curcs for pulmonary complaints," JAYNE'S EXPECTORANT stands alone. Its path to the public confidence has been paved, not with puffs, but CURES; and the vouchers lor its efficacy include an array of names which, for character and respectability, cannot be surpassed in this country.? DR. JAYNE, being himself a Physician, does not profess to perform physical impossibilities; 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 EXPECIORANT will restore the patient to health. No other mcdi cinc will remove the mucus or pus from the throat so thoroughly as this. It effectually 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 ol the pulmonary organs, even where nature seems to be making no effort to throw oil'the disease, JAYNE'S EXPECTORANT imparts vigor to the machinery of respiration, and enables them to disencumber them selves of obstructions which had impeded their free operation. It has restored hundreds to perfect health, alter their physicians had given them up as incurable with CONSUMPTION. Coughs, Colds, Asthma, In fluenza, Bronchitis, Whooping Cough, in a word, all diseaseaof 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 : "I would not bo without Dr. Jayne's Medicines in niy family for any consideration. I have found them successful in cases where all other means have failed." Mr. Nicholas Harris, corner of Front and Lombard streets Philadelphia, was cured of COUGH, ASTH MA, and BLEEDING OF THE LUNGS, under which lie labored for many years Rev. Ira M. Allen, of New York city, says:?"I have used Jayne's Expectorant, and have more confi dence in it than ALL OTHER MEDICINES of the kind," Rev. Wm. Laws, Modesttown, Va. says:?"I have used your expectorant, and found it an excellent med icine for 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 COLD." Rev. Arthur B. Bradford, of Darlington, Pa., says that it curcd 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. Ebenezer Webster, of Providence, (R. I.) was cured of a severe ASTHMA, t>y using two bottles. Rev. Simeon Seiglried, was curcd of Influenza, a Hoarseness, and a hard dry Cough by one bottle. Rev. Dr. Babcook, of Poughkeepsig$jjp#ys that knowing Dr. Jayne to be a regular Physician, and having used his medicines personally and iti his fa mily, does not hesitate to commend them as safe and eminently useful medicines, and a valuable ad dition to our Materia Medica. Rev. John Segur of Lambcrlsville, New Jersey, who was suffering with a hoarseness and soreness of the lungs and throat, and a^suffocating Asthma, was cured by one 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 he felt himself in imminent danger of immediato suffocation, but was perfectly cured by using this Expectorant." Mrs. Dilks, of Salem N. J. was cured of Asthma of ??i0 years standing, by using two bottles of this mcdi cine. Mrs. Ward, also of Salem, was cured of the same complaint by five 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 Tempercnce, stated at a meeting of upwards ?f 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 the day be fore, which had relieved him in a few hours, and he found himself, conti ary to his own expectation,able to address the multitude. The proprietor could add hundreds of other names equally respectable, who recommend JAYNE'S EX PECTORANT as superior to ALL OTHER MEDI CINES for the curc of all the various Pulmonary dis eases. Prepared and sold by Dr. D. JAYNE, No. 20 South THIRD Street Philadelphia, where all his other valuable preparations may be obtained. NO EXCUSE FOB A BALD HEAD. Since the important discovery of DR. JAYNE'S HAIR TONIC, every one may, if he chooses, pre serve his hair from falling off, or if already bald may with certainty have his hair restored again by a faith fu1 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 efficacy of JAYNE'S HAIR TONIC: We publish the following letter from a sense of duty to the public. It is just such 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.?Philad. Sun. Slirplurdstntcn, Va. 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 1 had the prospect of premature baldness. During several years I used various pre parations recommended for the hair, from which 1 derived no benefit. At length a friend recommended your Hair Tonic. I used three or four bottles ac cording to the printed directions, and at the end of six months, my hair was thick set, and since its 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 case 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. Yours, &c. JOHN QUIGLY, M. D. Dr. D. Jatne, Philadelphia. ALSO? JAYNE'S VERMIFUGE? JAYNE'S CARMINATIVE? JAYNE'S SANATIVE PILLS For sale by R. S. PATTERSON, Sole Agent, Washington, And O. M.

I have not taken the trouble to test it chemically, as this has been already done by others whose certificates arc as satisfactory to me as though the experiments had baen made by myself. THOMAS P.
