Cold*, Coughs, Cansurnpfians, Spitting of Blood, Asthmas,
and (ill Diseases of the Breast and Lung*.
THERF. is perhaps »» medical observation better es
tablished, none more generally confirmed by the
experience of the best physician/ of all ages ami coun
tries, and none of more importance to the Human fami
ly, titan the fact that many of the most difficult and in
curable consumptions originate in neglected colds. In
a climate so variable aS ours, where the changes ot
the weather are frequently sudden and unexpected, it
requires more care and attention to guard against this
dangerous enemy of life, than most people imagine,
or are able and w illing to bestow.—The bills of morta
lity exhibit the melancholy fact, that the proportion of
deaths by this disease may be considered as about five
to one. Inasmuch then as this fatal disease bids defi
ance to the skill of the most learned physicians, it is a gra
tification to the proprietor that He is enabled to offer to
those afflicted with it a goodly prospect of relief, in
that highly valuable remedy the vegetable Indian Spe
cific.—The Indians are happy in their knowledge of me
dical plants; governed wholly by experience, they arc
certain as to their effect, and it is said by an author of
gTeat character, that a true consumption is a disease ne
ver known amongst them.
For the information of those afflicted with complaints
of the breast and lungs, the proprietor inserts (from
among the numerous testimonials in his possession) the
following Certificate:
BulUmore, 7th Dec. 1824.
I, W. Price, of thecitv of Baltimore, do hereby certi
fy and declare, that 1 was for a long time afflicted with a
severe cold, accompanied with an almost incessant
cough, and pain in my breast and lungs; also, spitting
of blood, and purulent matter from the lungs, with night
sweats and fevers, and was much emaciated with loss
of appetite, rest &c. I applied to several eminent phy
sicians, and passed through a course of medicine, hut
could obtain no relief, and found myself fast verging on
to a confirmed consumption. Having at length heard of
the many astonishing cures effected by the Vegetable In
dian Specific, I was induced to make trial of it, and found
almost immediate relief, and my rest restored. I con
tinued its use, improving fast, my appetite better, and
all the symptoms of the disease daily diminishing, and in
a few weeks was completely cured, and have remained
so for several months, and am now in better health and
flesh than I have been for many years. I therefore with
confidence, recommend the use of the Vegetable Indian
Specific to all who suff er under a similar complaint, and
as a safe, pleasant afkl effectual remedy for consump
tion, and all diseases of the breast and lungs.
The celebrated Dr. Cullen has taught us that “our
first attention should be employed in watclung the ap
proach of the disease and preventing its proceeding
to an incurable state; and in persons of a consumptive
habit, especially those horn of consumptive parents, the
slightest symptoms of an approaching consumption at
the consumptive period of life, ought carefully to be at
tended to.”
This Specific is obtained by extraction from herbs,
roots, flowers, plants, &c. when in perfection. In con
sequence of a happy combination of the most valuable
herbs, Sic. it becomes a balsam of superior value. It
heals the injured parts, opens the pores and composes
the disturbed nerves after the manneref an anodyne;
consequentl) the obstruction of the chest and the lungs
which constitute this disease, particularly need its use.
It promotes expectoration, which is constantly called J
for; and whilst it cleanses and heals, it also gives strength (
to the tender lungs. In this manner it removes the
hectic fever, improves digestion, gives strength to the
nerves, repairs the appetite and improves the spirits-—
This specific may always be given in safety—it is mild,
pleasant to the taste, and may safely be given to infants
for which it is of inestimable value. It affords relief in
bowel complaints, teething, whooping coughs, &c. and
isfoufid particularly useful in hypochondrical, nervous
and hysterical diseases. Each bill of directions contains
^detailed accountofthisdisea.se in all it* different sta
ges and will be accompanied with the signature ot W.
BUTLER, in Red Ink. Sold by JOHN J SAVES,

A most valuable East lwLu Medicine for the cure of the
WVveuinnWsm ,\U\eumatic, 1} out,
Extract of a Letter from the Her. James English dcltj
Bengal, to his friend I)r. F. BedwelJ, in London.
“Dear Sir—Agrceableto your request I have with
difficulty procured and now send you by tin* ship Janm,
Capt. Robertson, a few pounds o* Poladelphis, or what
generally goes by the name of India Extract, a medi
cine universally esteemed among the people of India,
for the cure of Rheumatism. Was I to inform you of the
number of people who arc daily relieved and cured by
this valuable remedy, it would require more paper than
I am able to purchase, and more tin <• than J am able to
bestow. Indeed, the effect of this Medicine is so im
mediate, that in Rheumatism you would in some cases
suppose it acted almost like a%harm in removing that
paint'd disease. The difficulty, however in procuring
the Extract, will, for many jears, retard its general cir
culation. It being obtained from a Shrub grow ing on
the Mountains of Tibet, in the BermanKmpire of India,
and held in so much repute by the Nairna, that to part
with it, is like parting with their existence.” The usual
mode of faking it is in the farm of Pills. 1 shall use
all my endeavors to semi you a constant supply.
Since the proprietor has received the above Medicine,
he has put it up in boxes made for the purpose, con
taining sixty pills, with a bill of directions and a certifi
cate of its being genuine, signed in his own hand writ
ing—and in order to'show its vast importance, has
thought proper to submit for public inspection, a few
out of a vast number of Certificates from people who
have been cured by it in Europe and America.
Ijundon, Jan. 7, 1823.
Dear Doctor—I have been violently affected with a
Rheumatic complaint for many years; even my fingers
were so contracted I could neither dress nor undress
myself, or give the least assistance to my family—I have
only used two boxes of the Extract, and I am perfectly
restored. Yours, truly, R. RALSTON.
London, April 19///, 1824.
Dear Sin—1 beg leave to inform you that I have been
for these several months so affected with such violent
pains in my hips, thighs and legs, and swelling of the
joints, that I could not rest day nor night; nothing that
was applied gave any relief, until a neighbor of mine in
formed me of the India Extract having performed ma
ny cures; I sent for a box, w hich gave w onderful relief
and by using two boxes and a half, I am as well as ever
I w*as in my life. Your obedient servant, .1. WELSH.

Dear Sir—It becomes me at t>.is time, to express to
God my gratitude for the means Ik had made use of, in
restoring my long lost health, by the use of a medicine
called Poltidelphis o* India Extract. For the last five
years I have been so grievously afflicted with liheuma
fisra, that I have at times almost wished for death to le
lievc me from my suffering—seeing this medicine ad
vertised, I sent for a box, and I do declare, that since I
have began to use it I have never felt a pain, and ain
sure that by continuing to use it for a short time, I shall
again enjoy my usual health, and be able to support mv
Family, as heretofore. Inclosed, I send you three dol
lars, for two boxes, which you will please to pack up
carefully, and Mr. Herncy will bring it safe to me. You
may tell the world it ismy opinion, ‘hatthe Poladetphis
is the only medicine in the world, that will cure the
Rheumatism. With joy and gladness. Yours,
