The object of tho Association is to fur?

RJ"Mil-: C-U' EN'S DELIGHT, the great
_L American ? Iterative and blood Puri?
fier, is the most perfect vegetable com
I pound of aiterativ? s, tonics, diuretics and
diaphoretics; making it the most effective
! invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
! cleansing cordial known tu *': .. world.
I lu introducing this 1,, ,y and extraordi?
nary medicine to thc public, observe*?on
I leads us to remark that too little attention
! is paid to the "lifo of all flesh," the blood.
J Many diseases, and. too,many complaints,
i which have their origin ma vitiated state
of the blood, are treated < m ly as symptoms

I have been removed. Tho Queen's Delight
j is offered to thc afflicted as a sure remedy
I for those diseases arising from an impure
condition of tho blond, it bas a direct
and speedie action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders the blood pure. It
! is said, on high authority, that "man nc
sooner begins to live than he begins tc
