Prevention better than Cure.
For tbe prevention cud cure of Bilious and
Malignant Fevers, is recommended,
Da. HAHN's
Anti-bilious Pills,
WHICH hare been attended with a degree
of success highly grateful to the inven
tor's feelings, in several parts of the Weft In
dies,and the southern parts of the United States
particularly in Baltimore, Ptterfburg, Rich,
moiid, Norfolk, Edcnton, Wilmingt n,Ci;arlef
toif, Savannah. icc. Ihe teftirmny of a num
ber of pcrfonsin each of the above places can be
adduced, who have reason to believe that a
timely ufs of th s falu'ary remedy, has, under
Providence, preserved their lives when in the
most alarming circwinftances.
Fafls of this conclusive nature speak more in
favour of a medicine, than columns of pompouc
eulogy, founded on mere aflertinn, could do.
It is n .t indeed prefurnptuoufly propoled at
an infallible cure, but the inventor has every
pollib'e reafoDi which can refulr from rxteufive
experience for believing that a dole i t these pilltj
taken oriceevery two wetks during the preva
lence of out annual bilious fevers, will prove an
infallible preventative ; and further, that in the
earlier stages of those diseases, their ule will
yery generally succeed in restoring health and
frequently in cafe* esteemed desperate and bey
ond the power of common remedies
The operation of theSe pills is perfeiSly mild
and may beufed with fafety by pcrfomin ever
lituation and of every age.
They are excellently adapted to carry off fu
perfiuous bile and prevent its. morbid secretions;
to rellore and amend the appetite ; to produce
a free perfpiraticn and thereby prevent cold*
which are often of fatal conlequence. A dose
never fails to remove a cold if taken on its firft
appearance. Thev are celebrated for removing
habitual coftivenefs, sickness sf the fteraach and
severe head-ache, and ought to be taken by all
perfous on a change of climate.
They have been found remarkably efficaciou*
an preventing and curing moll djforders attend
ant on long voyages, and Ihould be procured
and carefully preserved for use by every feama*.
Dr. HAHN's
Genuine Eye-water.
A certain and fafe remedy for all diseases of thft
eyes, whether the effeil of natural weaknef», or of
accident, speedily removing inflammations, de
fluxions of rheum, dullness, itching, and films in
the e jies, never failing to cure those maladies which
frequently fuccced the l'mall pot, mealies and fe
