I MPORTANT DISCOVERY. t^SWAlM'S VERML, FUGE:— Patent. -This valuable Anti-dysenteric and Worm Medicine has been used for these seven tears past, and ils virtues are universally acknowledged by all" who have tried it, to be far superior to any other medicine ever employed for most diseases children are subject to. It is per fectly safe, and no child will refuse to take it. It seldom fails curing Dysentery, Summef Complaint, Colic or Cholera Morbus, either in grown persons or children, and it gives ap petite to almost all debilitated persons. Worms frequently infest children, aggravate their other diseases, and are the chief cause of most fevers, boivel complaints, and chronic and nervous diseases, incident to childhood, which are so numerous and frequently fatal. It is much to Are regretted that most vermifuges now in use are injurious, and thousand» of children are swept off, or are rendered feeble, pale and emaciated through the firet stage of life—which leads pulmonary complaints, &c. &e. &c. Worms being especially apt to infest persons of debilitated digestive organs and emaciuled constitutions, much mischief is often done by the ordinary worm medicines, which general ly consist of the strongest purgatives, mercurials, bitters, narcotics, or spirits of turpentine. Articles of this kind may destroy worms, but they debilitate the stomach, and often materially injure the general health. , Swaim's Vehmifueg has the peculiur advantage of destroying and removing w orms from the bowel9 without tire weakening consequences of the stronger purgatives, &c. and it has, moreover, a der ided tendency to give vigour, both to the stomach and bowels, and organs of digestion—thereby relieving the general system from many troublesome complaints. It is by this means that so many grown persons have been relieved, by its use, of dif ferent complaints—supposing themselves to be in a der line ftc. &c. &c. on to This medicine will relieve Bowel complaints or Dysen tery, Bilious Colic , vomitings sickness , pain or weakness in the stomach or bowels , loss of appetite either in children or grown persons , in a few hours; and it seldom fails curing CHILLS AND FETER OR FEVER AGUE. No family ought , or ever will he without it, after a trial Sold -n Wilmington, ot M. JOHNSON'S Drug andMedi einal Store , No. 90, Market street, e ast side, third door above the upper market. Nov. 1.
