IS respectfully solicited by the subscriber, to an in
valuable preparation, the merits of which have
been tested by time, and are sustained by undoubted
“*‘dr7relfe’s botanical drops
are every year increasing their long established repu
tation. Thev have outlived many rival preparations,
and are continually gaining upon public confidence.
The Botanical Drops have been successfully admin
istered for many years, as a thorough remedy for that
well known and prevalent clas9 of inveterate diseases
which originate from a vitiated habit of body, or an he
reditary predisposition in the patient, and genera v
appear under the various and distressing shapes o

Botanical Drops will be found to eradicate the lurk
*T?™on *h're mercury has totally failed, and thus
prevent the patient from entailing the seeds of an he- :
reditary disease on his offspring.
Dr. Relfe's Botanical Drops are successfully used in
eases of violent eruptions after the measles—red
blotches—pimples on the face—festering eruptions on
the skin—and other diseases of the external surface;
and are one of the best Spring and Autumnal physics
known, to free the system from humors.
A physician of eminence, who had witnessed the ef
ficacy of this article, had the candor recently to ack
nowledge to the proprietor, that he considered it the
best medicine known, for the complaints for which it
is intended, and that it ought deserved y to stand at
the head of the whole class of such remedies.

CONSUMPTION, ASTHMA & CATARRH.
IN that long train of diseases which seem to grow
with the growth of civilized society, Consumption
takes the lead in its relentless inroads upon human
life -. yet ihis dreadful disorder is easily overcome in its
oarher stages. It is only when neglectea that it ar
rives at the terrific maturity which so often bames the
sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough
is the customary forerunner of the pulmonary con*
sumption Improper neglect in the timely a.lmmis
tration of simple and salutary remedies, is sure to be j
reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
symptoms oppression of the breast; greenish and i
bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; sliri j
veiled extremeties, and general emaciaiion ot the
whole body; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks;
swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the full posses
sion of the mental faculties, and while hope still whis
pers her flattering tale—cold extremities, and a pre
mature death.
For the various stages of this complaint, one ot the
most approved remedies ever yet discovered is
DR. RELFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS.
This exceedingly powerful, and yet equally safe and
innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid j
cures upon patients supposed to have been tar advanc
edio a confirmed Consumption, and who have exhibit
ed the appearances-which usually indicate a tatui ter
mination of he disorder.
As the Pills require in ordinary cases no confine
ment, they may be administered with confidence and
safety to all ages and classes of people. Uuexampled
success has hitherto attended their administration in a
great variety of cases; and the proprietor can refer to
a multitude, which testify to their efficacy in reviving
£lig emaciated victim from the bed ot disease, and re
storing him to the blessings of accustomed health and
activity.
Price $1 for who/e boxes of 30 pills, and 50 cents for
half do. of U pills, with directions.
DEBILITATED FEMALES.
THFj complaints peculiar to the female part of the
community, have been long successfully treated
by the administration of the Aromatic Pills, originally
prescribed and compounded by Dr. Kelfe They
cleanse the blood from those disorders of the female
constitution, for which the pills are an effectual speci
fle; they restore a freecircula ion, reform the irregular
operations of the sangu femus system, and rectify the
disordered habits. The proprietor's confidence in the
superior excellence of this equally iimocent and pow
erful preparation, is founded on the most decisive tes
tiraony from mvny restored patients He can assure
this portion of tUe public, that when
dr. RELFE’S AROMATIC PILLS FOR
FEMALES
are regularly taken, accor-ling to the directions, ac
companying them, they revive and establish the desir
ed healthy habits, and restore to the pallid counte
nance the natural glow of health and good spirits.
Married ladies will find the pills equally useful, ex
cept in cases of paegnancy, when they must not be
taken} neither must they be taken by persons of hec
tic or consumptive habits. They may be used success
fully by either men or women in all Hypochondriac,
Hysteric or Vapourish disorders. In all cases ot this
description, the pills purify, invigorate, and revive the
disordered system Price $i 50 a box.

sole proprietor of tl.e patent from September, 1817,
until “he expiration of the same; but, having connect,
ed myself with Or. Judkins in the commencement, I
permitted the Ointment to bear his name. 1 ne ter
of the patent having expired on the 26th June, I nave
made an improvement in the same, and taken out.a^pa
tent thereon. N. SHfcPHhtiD.
ijj5* Imposition having been practised upon the nub
ile by a spurious article, bearing the name of “ Jud* I
kins* Ointment,” the proprietor avails himself or the
authority granted to him in his letters patent, now to
call the Ointment after his own name, Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
SHEPHERD'S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT
MENT, (formerly Judkins'.)
When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and
had, in several instances, experienced its good effects,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint
ment would be a valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process —ne
vertheless, it might he progated in this adulterated si
tuation, as it might in some degree resemble the origi
nal—and in this way its good effects would be oblitera
ted Under these considerations, I secured the origi
nal and certain remedy for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long bafffe J the skil. of me
dical science: # ,
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing, .
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythose
hardened tumors in women s breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulceiated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by thename
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains of the joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or i n
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds. In this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
...r_,.
8th Chilblains or parts affected bv frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for bums and
scalds. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a
short time. , , , ,
For inflamed women’s breasts and glandular swel
lings, it is superior to any medicine *et known to the
medical faculty It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of
anv preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sotes of many years stand
ing Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious 01 rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries,
increase the quantity of discharge, remove the offen
sive smell, and ease the pains
It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty-eight hours

Sir—My son having been afflicted for five years
with white swelling, and having applied every reme
dy recommended by the most eminent physicians
within my reach without success, 1 at length procured
one jug of Dr Judkins9 Patent Specific Ointment. and
made the application according to the directions ac
company ing the Ointment, and slate, for the benefit
of the afflicted, that before one jug was used a perf.-ct
core was clFected. My son has enjoyed good health
ever since. I have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
he is indebted; for nothing else was used for more
than nine months before the application of the Oint
ment. Respectfully, Joax Cocke

to communicate to you the good effect with which 1
have used the Ointment invented by a Mr. Judkins,
and which i now understand is made and sold by

v)intment during the last three years to every species
of tumor and wound, without failure to produce a cure
m every instance. 1 consider it the most decided and
efficient remedy in all cases of tumor, be the cause
whatit may; and l have found nothing so good for
wounds of any description It may be proper to
add, that the cure of a tumor called white swelling,
given over bv the most distinguished physicians as in
curable, and which they decided would, without ampu
ation, prove tatalto the patient, was, under my imme
diate notice, effected by the use of Judkins’ Ointment,

and of ulcers* I haveexpe lenced, as decidedly, the
good effect of this remedy in the cure of Felons, and
of every species of fresh wound. It seems to me that

Baltimore, August, 1828.
Doctor S. H. P. Lee, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Odious Pills in my fami
ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al- j
most everv description of disease, and believe they sa
ved many a long doctor's bill bv their early and timely
use. I never found their accustomed certainty to vary
in their operation and effects until a few months past;
and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve
ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you
had made your fortune, and abandoned their mxnufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this
impression, I accidentally saw au advertisement of
yours in a New Yorft newspaper, designating spurious
imitation" from your own manufacture, by having your
WRITTEN SIGNATURE to each bill of directions,
and that in no instance were the imitations signed with
pen and ink, although a perfect copy in every other
respoct. Finding those I had without this test, I be
gan to suspect that 44 all was not lair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe
caries for your pills, with your written signature. 1
found m*uy without this test, but none with it, until I
came to the Messrs Keerls*, who assured me they had
them direct from you. I procured a box, and on using
them, found the same effects from them 1 had always
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my
self in possession of a medicine I so highly prize, that
that 1 cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this
information.
(Xj* To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu
rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has
only to examine the bill of directions covering each
box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, im
mediately under my printed name, they are genuine,
and prepared by me; but if orly the printed name is
affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

YieaVih Secured,
BY the use of the Hygeian Vegetable Universal
Medicines of the British College of Health, Lon
don, which have obtained the approbation and recoin
mendation of thousands who have been cured, in con
sumptions, cholera morbus, inflammations, internally
or externally; dyspepsia, fevers, ague, indigestion, bi
lious or nervous affections, and all diseases of the liver;
yellow fever, gout, rheumatism,lumbago, tic doloreuir
dropsy, St. Vitus’9 dince, epilepsy, apoplexy, paraly.
sis, palsy, green sickness, and all obstructions to which
the female form is so distressingly liable, and which
sends so many of this fairest portion of the creation io
their untimely graves; small pox, measles, whooping
cough, scarlet fever, asthma, jaundice, gravel, stone’
and all urinary obstructions; fistula, piles, strictures’
ruptures, and syphilis in all its stages; constipated bo-/,
els, worms, scurvy, itching* ol the skin, king’s evii,
and all cutaneous disorders; in short, every complain*
to which the human frame is so direfully subject, un
der all their varied forms and names; as the Ilygeixi«
conviction is, that man is subject to one onlv rtui
Disease- that is, TO THE 1MFUR.ITY UFT/H
BLOOD, -from whence springs every complaint th,.
can possioly assail his complicated frame; and that it
is the perpetual struggle of this vital, pure stream of
life, (the gift of Almighty power) to disencumber i;.
self of its viscous, acrid humours, with which it hr.sb?
come commixed, through the negligence of paren
the ignorance or maltreatment ot the Doctors; or *hv
vicious or gormandizing propensities of ut: all.
This valuable Medicine, being composed only
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, as containing not one particle of rneicurial,
mineral, or chemical substances, (all of which art un
congenial to the nature of man, and therefore dectru
live to the human frame,) is found to he perfectly
harmless to the most tender age or weakest frame, un
der every stage of human suffering; the most pi inn',
and benign in it-, operation, and at the same time th-;
most searching out the root of every complaint, hov
ever deep, and of perfoiming a cure, that was ever
offered to the world. This wonderful effect, too, i;
produced by the least trouble to the patients, by
merely swallowing a certain number ot small pills, sne
being called a few extra times to the purposes of c ,
cuation, with the least possible sensation of pain, o:
exhaustion of bodily s’rength, and without the tear of
catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any w ay
different from their accustomed habits.
These pills cure all cases, and oannot be taken .
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of c'!
human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the
fact; and extensive use ot them has already verified
its truth in this country.
These medicines cure by purging; and yet the we dr,
the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the del cate, b e
in a few days strengthened by theiroperatio.i, bera.sr
they clear the body of its bad humours, an ! invariably
procure sound sleep. They are the safest u*.d rr.o:'
efficacious menicineto take to sea; preventing scurvy(
costiveness, he,
The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are ofgres* as
sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation t'
bad humours; they soiten, cleanse, and detach tl.c
acrimonious phlegni; are cooling, and allay the tlniv.
One, two, or three pow’ders may be taken through
the day , mixed in half a wine glass of water.
Extract of a Letter to Dr. Mont.
Sm: The motive which ha> induced me to writetu..
letter to you, is, that I might be instrumental in the
recommendation of Morrison’s Universal Vegetable
Medicines to the afflicted, w hich, by the Divine bless
ing, has cured me of the Scarlet Fever. My case ua
as follows: Whilst returning from Washington to Alex
andria, I was taken very ill, which obliged me, on it;
arrival, to retire suddenly to bed, but could not sleep
and 'he next day my throat became sc much inflame...
that I could scarcely swallow; and my face, breast,:
body, presented evident symptoms of the great L
ger 1 was in, and I knew not what to do; c.uloir.cD
Mercury 1 abhorred as poison, and therefore desire:
no assistance from the Druggist; but my mother,
had experienced the good effect of the Hygeian Fil
in a case or two of her own, most strenuously advise-’
me to try their virtue, which, with reluctance, I coi
sented to, and commenced by taking eight No. 1 pl
at night, and eight No. 2 the next morning and con
tinued taking, increasing daily, morning ami evening
until I took sixteen No. 2 at a time, which were ch
solved in water, as, by means of my sore throat, 1 could
not otherwise swallow them. 1 confess the nose nv. l
me feel somewhat qualmish, 8tc.; but the pills an cl
powders, of which l took one or two tea-spoonsful! »
day, operated well, and the final result wjs, that i It*,
into a sound sleep, of which I had been deprived,
the next morning awoke in a state of perspiration,fret.
from fever, cool and comfortable, and my reason 1
I had been deranged in mind) returned; and on trie
9th day from the time I was first taken, 1 left my room,
and have ever since enjoyed better health than 1< J
before. You have my leave to make what use you
please of this. I wish you success, and am, sir.
obedient friend, MARY ANN FUWLklh
