R. FARNHAM, corner II th st. and Penn. a v. THE TRUTH SOMETIMES NOT FOUND OUT UNTIL TOO LATE. SUCH is often the case in regard to persons taki?g medicine. They are induced by plausible rea soning, false representation and doctrines, to employ medicines that, so far from being adapted to their di-ease or sickness, absolutely increase the symp toms, destroy the constitution, rack the whole system, and bring on a gradual decline, terminating in death ; previous to the fatal termination, however, (but unfortunately too late,) the truth is found out that the pills, mixtures, &c. they have been taking were composed of the most powerful and dangerous ingredients, prepared too byp-rsons knowing nothing of disease or the nature of the medicines they recom mend, depending altogether upon the '? general doc trine of such imposters," that their medicines will ' kill or cure." Be advised, then, if you find it ne cessary to take some medicine for purifying the blood and cleansing the bowels, to t ike nothing but Dr. Leidy's justly and deservedly celebrted S \RSAPA R1LLA BLOOD PILLS, the only pills containing Sarsaparilla in the their composition?the safest and best as well as the most effectual that can be taken. Old and young, at all times, without regard to weather, may take them without fear of taking cold, and without lestraint from occupation or usual course of living. Upwards of 1 OOtl certificates ha?e been published, various tim'-s, of their efficacy. More than 100,001) boxes have been sold in Philadelphia ill twelve months. These tacts go to prove their value, or so many never would be sold in so short a time, in a place where they are manufactured; this, how ever, arises in part from the fact that the manufac turer of them (Or. I.eidy) is well known at home as a regu ar physician and apothecary, knowing the true nature of diseases and of the medicines he recom mends, attested by the most celebrated physicians, among whom arc Dr. Nathaniel Chapman, Dr. Wm. Gibson, Dr. W. E. Horner, Dr. Samuel Jackson, Dr. ttobert Hare, Dr. P. S3. Physic, ur. T. C. James, Dr. W. P. Dcwees, Dr. J. Redman Ooxe, Rev. W. H Delancy, Robert Adrian, IjLI>-, &c. &c. Orders far I'r. Leidy's BLOOD PILLS are daily received from the North, South, Last, and West, and the most flattering accounts, iroiu every direction, of their u-paralleled success. A vingle box (^o cents) may save as many dollars, if taken in time, instead of the dangerous medicine"- now forced on the pub lic, and by taking which persons so often find it ne cessary at last to take Dr. Leidy's Blood Pills, to counteract their injurious consequences. I b?y are prepared pnlv, and sold Wholesale and ReUl, at I Jr. Leidy's Health Emporium, No 191, North Second street, below Vine street, Philadelphia.
