This Medicine has acquired a very extended and es
tablished reputation wherever it has been used, based
entirely on its own merits, which its superior efficacy
has alone sustained. The unfortunate v icum of hered
itary disease, with swollen glands,contracted sinews,
i and bones half carious, has been restored to healt h and
I vigor. The scrofulous patient, covered with ulcers,
loathsome to himself and his attendants, has been made
whole. Hundreds of persons, who had groaned hope
lessly for years under cutaneous and glandular disor
ders, chronic rheumatism, and many other complaints
springing from a derangement of the secretive organs
and the circulation, have been raised as it wore from
the rack of disease, and now, with regenerated consti
tutions, gladly testify to the cfiicacy ot this inestimable
P"‘tRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION.”
The attention of the reader is called to the following
astonishing cure, effected by the use of Sands’ Sarsa
r*l'n'iis is to certify that I have a colored woman who
has been afflicted for the last live years with Scrofula,
and all the remedies I used had no effect in arresting
! the progress of the complaint; on the contrary, she con
stantly grew worse; and alter expending between §70
and §80 with physicians, besides using other popular
remedies without success, till the disease had eaten a
way the cartilage of her nose, made its appearance on
various parts ot her body, and had finally commenced
its ravages in the roof of her mouth.
In this dreadful situation, with the prospect of death
staring her in the face, 1 stated her case to Dr. Disos
way, the apent for Sands* Sarsaparilla in Newbern, y.
C by whom I was advised to use that article ; and to
my surprise and that of my neighbors, to whom her case
was kuown, after using four and a half bottles she was
restored to perfect health, and that in the space ot three
weeks, and was able to work in two weeks from the lime
she commenced taking it.
In witness of the truth of this statement, I have here

Jiaileijtbtug, l-a, Dec 13, l84o.
Messrs A B & D Sands : Before I commenced using
your Sarsaparilla, my suffering were almost past ex
pression ; my throat was completely ulcerated, I had a
dreadful cough, and there were frequently weeks to
gether that I could not speak above a whisper; and be
sides, the inflamation Iroiu my throat extended to my
head, so that uiv hearing was very much impaired. At
tcr taking the Sarsaparilla a short time, my health im
proved, and my throat is now well; I am as free from
cou»h and tightness of the chest as ever 1 was, and can
hear quite distinctly. My throat has been well about
three months, the cure ofwhich has been eltected en
tirely by the use of your Sarsaparilla.
Your friend; LOUISA R BEVAN.
The following testimonial to the value of the Sarsa
parilla, is from the Rev Luther Wright, aged 76 years,
Congregational Minister, residing at Woburn.
* Woburn, Muss, March 30th, 1846.
Messrs. Sands; Gentlemen—From what I have ex
perienced, and from the information I have recently re
ceived from a number of persons of high respectability
who have used your Sarsaparilla, I have not the least
doubt but that it is a most valuable medicine, and that
the numerous certificates you have received of its effi
cacy arc fully sustained by experience, and although its
reputation and utility are very extensive, and stand in
no need of my humble efforts to increase them, I want
all who are afflicted by disease to become acquainted
with the efficacy and power of your valuable medicine.

the Press” which is, by the-by, the true path-finder
j for business men, as well as those who wish to make
every Penny count most for themselves. 1 his be
ing the order of the day, the undersigned wish to
keep with the current, and at the same time give
the reader a good hint which path to travel to make
his money count most. A few good reasons will
i satisfy the reader at once why it is that they can
i and will sell any gentleman a suit of Ready made
I Clothing, frurn the commonest every day suit, to a
fine Sunday and superfine wedding suit, cheaper
than any other establishment. In the first place,
then, they are able to sell cheaper than other
establishments, because they are well acquainted
with their business. They buy and sell for Cash,
, and know when and where and how to purchase
'their goods. “Goods well bought are half sold
Kven if they bad no advantages over any one in
their line of business, they can still undersell them,
because they require no large profits to make up for
I a r^e expenses. They attend to their business them
selves, and therefore incur but small exposes, com-1
paratively speaking, in carrying on the same. They
sell their Goods for Cash, and therefore require no
laro-e profits to make up for loss sustained by credit
salos No one will doubt that the Cash system,
j together with small profits, is the best modeoi deal
I inir and most advantageous to the purchaser. If
' anv one doubts this, he will be convinced of its
truth by calling at theCLOIHING AND VA
RIETY STORE, Corner of the Virginia Hotel,
! where he will find a largo assortment of all kinds
1 of Rpady-made Clothing, for Men and Boys’wear,
such as Cloaks, Over-Coats, Frock, Sack, Business
and Dress Coats, Pants and Vests of all descrip
tions, Woollen Under shirts and Drawers, all kinds
! of Shirts, Collars, Cravats, Handkerchiefs, Gloves,
Caps and I lats, together with some fancy articles,
all of which they will with pleasure exhibit for ex
