For Diseases nf the Throat and Laug*, such as
Coughs, Colds, Whooping Cough, Bron
chilis. Asthma and Consumption.
I) HOBAB LY never before in thc whole history of
. medicino, luis anything won HO widely and so
deeply upon tho confidence) of mankind, as this
excellent remedy for pulmonary complaints.
Through a long sories of years, and anions most
?d' thc racosof men, it has risen higher and higher
tn their estimation, as it has becomo belter known.
Its uniform character and power to cure tho vari?
ous affections of the lungs and throat, have mado
it known as a reliable protector against them.
While adapted to milder forms of disease and to
young children, it is at tiwi same time trie most
effectual remedy that can bo given for incipient
consumption, and the dangerous affections of tho
throat and lungs. As a provision against sudden
attacks of CKOUI\ it should be kept on hand in
every family; and, indeed, as all are sometimos
subject to colds and coughs, all should be provided
with this antidoto for them.
Although Bottled CONSUMPTION is thought
incurable, still great numbers of eases where tho
disease Boomed settled have been completely
cured, and the patient restored to sound health by
thc CHERRY PECTORAL. So complete is its
mastery over tho disorders of tho lungs and
throat, that the most obstinate of them yield to it.
When nothing else could reach them, under tho
CHERRY PECTORAL they subside and disap?
protection from it.
ASTHMA is always relieved and often vholly
cured by it.
BRONCHITIS is generally curad bv taking the
CHERRY PECTORAL in small and [refluent doses.
So generally nie its virtues known that we need
not publish the ci rtificatos of them here, or do
more than assure the public that its qualities arc
fully maintained.
For Fever and Ague-, Intermittent Fever, Chili
Fi rer. Itemittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical
or Hiltons Fern; <{<... and ii,fleed all the affections
which arise from malarious, marsh, or miasma?
tic poisons.
As its name implies, it does Cure, and docs not
fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinine, Bis
m'i1,|'. ??.3cwl\uYev0r*, 'dillir. mine ral or poisonous
fio?? ' The number and importance of its enies in
tlie ague districts, are literally bejond account,
and we bi licve without a paralh 1 ill the history of
Ague medicine. Our pride is gratified by tho
acknowledgments we receive of the radical cures
effected in obstinate cases, and where other reme?
d? s had wholly failed.
(Jnacclimated persons, either resident in, or
traveling through miasmatic localities, will bo
protected by laking the AGUE CCRE daily.
For LIVER COMPLAINTS, arising ironi tor?
pidity of the l iver, it is an excellent remedy,
stimulating the Liver into healthy activity.
For bilious Disorders mid Liver Complaints, it
is an i xci lieut remeky, produciug many truly re?
ma i kable cures where other medicines had failed.
