Iv more satisfaction to all who have used it than any other
Medicine ever offered to the public. The following are
among many testimonials of its efficacy:
Dr R H "WoRTHiSGTOJt Dear Sir: 1 take much pleasure
in adding my testimony to others in favor of your remedv
for Bowel Affections, ic, having so frequent lv experienced
its beneficial results in my own case, as well as in many
others to whom I have given it. I carried a bottle of it
with me to Baltimore, (and here permit me to sav I would
as soon think of traveling without money as without this
remedv,) and findin, many among my acquaintances . there
who were suffering with various forms of Bowel Affecnons
I gave it freely, and in so instance did it fail to afford the
most prompt and decidkd REi.iBF.ns it has done here. I
congratulate you, and especially the public on the d.scov
ervof a medicine which is better calculated to protect man
kind and alleviate suffering, than any other ever brought
before the people. L. T. SPIERb.
This is to certify that, some weeks back. I was taken
with a violent Diarrhoea, which persisted for eight days.
Being some sixty miles from home, I made use of all the
remedies I could think of, but without affording anv whet
Ou arriving at home, 1 was informed that Dr. R. H. Wor
thington had prepared a remedv for Cholera, &c., and was
adviled to use it. 1 did so, and to my astonishment one
sinHe dose gave speedr and permanent relief, since which
time I have used it frequently in my toniily ; and m justice
to the Doctor say, I consider it mudi the most valuable Jed
icine I have usei in an experience jm!' PEilART.
Murfreesboro', N. C, Oct. 2, '54.
"Dr WoRTHisGTON Dear Sir: I take great pleasure in
recommending your Cholera Medicine to the public, and
more especially since I have had personal experience and
observation of its beneficial effects.
I have tried several remedies put up for Cholera, &c, but
have never found such happy lesults from an r as from
vonr invaluable remedy. 1 have such unbounded c-nti-'dence
in its efficacy, that 1 am unwilling and will not leave
home without a supply with me - and I regard it as one of
the most valuable discoveries ot the age BEAM AN.
Windsor, N. C, Sept. 1!, T4.
Dr R II WoRTHisGTON Dear Sir: I have made some
effort and have succeeded in introducing your Medicine to
the imbl'ic.and 1 tind it is taking very wed indeed; and the
result is, that I have nearly sold what you sent me. I
therefore wish you would send me some more as soon as
vou can I hove not the si ghtesl doubt tW that
"this Medicine is the very best remedy out tor the scase j
for which it is recommended. I hope you will soon send
me a supply, as 1 would not like to get ent uely out of it. ;

From the Murfreesboro' Gazette.
Msrs. Editors: In looking over the last number of the
Oazette I found a communication from our friend, Mr 1..
T Spiers recommending Dr. R. U. Worth ngton's Cholera
Mixture to the public, for the cure of D.arrhcea, Dysentery,
and other kindred diseases. Having experienced in my o.vn
case the happv effects of its use, as well as other members
of mv famiW, 1 can safely say that I regard it as superior o
anv remedy we have ever used, in an experience of twenty
rears I would, therefore, recommend it to every faintly,
as an 'invaluable remedy, and every indmd.ial o procure a
bottle and keep it by ihem in these tunesot 2tiKKR.
Murfreesboro', Aug- 80, '54.
This is to certify that I have used Dr. R H. Worthing
tou's Cholera Medicine in my family for the last four or
five weeks in several cases of Bowel Complaint, so common
in our vicinity, with invariable success. One of the cases
was that of a negro child, some four or five months old,
who was so emaciated by the effects of the .djsease, that its
lifr was nearly despaired of, when my wife happened to
hink that sh'ewoud try the Cholera Medicine and d.d
so with complete success, in less than forty-eight hours.
I am thoroughly of opinion that no family should be with
out so fine a medicine. ..... . . , ,..

Dr R H WoRTHiN-r.TOS : It affords us pleasure to say,
that we 'have used your Cholera Diarrhea Medicine for the
last twelve monlhs, and have found it invariably successful,
in relieving speedily the cases in which we have had occa
sion to use it. AVe entertain a high appreciation of its va
lue and have no hesitation in expressing the opinion, that
H will prove to be a valuable CQ wpER.

by the timely and judicious use of a good piu-gatiw' '
1 This is alike true of Colds, Feverish symptoms, a ; .
Bilious derangements. I hey all tend to become - .
produce the deep seated and formidable distempers .
which load the hearses all over the land. Hence a .
reliable family physic is of the first importante to
the public health, and this Pill has been perfected .
with consummate skill to meet that demand. . An
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profcsr. .
sore, and Patients, has shown results surpassing ;
any thing hiflierto known of any medicine. Cures
have been effected beyond belief, were they not sub- s
stantiated by persons of such exalted position and
character as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Among the many eminent gentlemen who have
testified m favor of these Pills, we may mention :'
Dn. A. A. Hayes, Analytical Chemist, of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whose high j
professional character is endorsed by the
""- Hour. EfiwAKD -LverbTT; ento-trRii-Trr?---Robert
C. Winthkop. Ex-Speaker of the House

New York City, endorsed by - ' fc
Hon. W. L. Marcy, Secretary of State.
Wm. B. Astor, the richest man in America.' . '
E. Leland & Co., Propr'a of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others. ?
Did space permit, we could give many hundred '
certificates, from all parte where the Pills have -been
used, but evidence even more convincing than
the experience of eminent ''public men is found -in
their effects upon trial. - - . , .
These Pills, the result of long investigation and .
study, are offered to the public as the best and
most complete which tho. present state of medical :
science can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves- but of the medicinal virtues
only of vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical
process in a state of purity, and combined together
in such a manner as to insure the best results. This
system of composition for medicines has been fouad
in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce.a 7
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by the old mode of compositioni-ev-"
ery medicine is burdened with more or leas of acri
monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi-.
vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative '
effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed are left behind, the ;
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is
self-evident the effects should prove as they have
proved more parely remedial, and the PQls a surer,
more powerful antidote to disease than any other,
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medicine V '
should be taken under the counsel of an attending . j .
Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a .
remedy without knowing its composition, I have '
supplied the accurate Formulas by which both my
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of ,
Practitioners in the United States and British Amer . ,
ican Provinces. If however there should be any''
one who has not received them, they will bif
promptly forwarded by mail to hia address. '
Of all the Patent Medicines that are ffered, how .
few would be taken if their composition "as known . ',
Their life consists in their mystery. ' I have no
The composition of my preparations m laid ope :
to all men, and all who are competent to judge 01
the subject freely acknowledge their conviction ,
of their intrincic merits. The Cherry Pectoral was '
pronounced by scientific men to be a wonder faj .
medicine before its effects were known. Many em- ;
inent Physicians have declared the same thing of ;
my Pilla, and even more confidently, and are will-..,
big to certify that their anticipations were more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the ,
internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it -into
healthy action remove the obstructions of
the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the
oody, restoring their irregular action to health, and '
by correcting, wherever they exist, such derange- -ments
as are the first origin of disease.
Being sugar wrapped they are pleasant to take
and being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from
their use in any quantity. - -
