They are the product of long, laborious, and successful chemical investigation, and their extensive use, by physicians in their practice, and by all civilized na tions, proves them the best and most effectual purgative Pill that medical science can devise. Being purely veg etable no harm can arise from their use, and being sugar-coated, they are pleasant to take. In intrinsic value and curative powers no other Pills can be compared with them ; and every person, knowing their virtues, will employ them, when needed. They keep the system in perfect order, and maintain in healthy action the whole machinery of life. Mild, searching and effectual, they are especially adapted to the needs of the digestive apparatus, derangements of which they prevent and cure, if timely taken. They are the best and safest physic to employ for children and weakened constitu tions, where a mild but effectual cathartic is required. For sale by all druggist. 2, f I '4
