and are continually gaining upon public confidence.
The Botanical Dropa have been successfully admin

well known and prevalent class of inveterate diseases
which originate from a vitiated habit of body, or an he

In the last mentioned condition of the system, the
Botanical Drops will be found to eradicate the lurk

prevent the patient from entailing the seeds of an he

Consumption!
Asthma! .V 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 this dreadful disorder is easily overcome in its
earlier stages. It is only when neglected that it ar
rive j at the terrific maturity which so often baffles the
sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough
is the customary forerunner of the pulmonary con
sumption Improper neglect in the timely adminis
tration of simple and salutary remedies, is sure to be
reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
sv mptoms — oppression of the breast; greenish and
bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shri
veiled extremeties, and general emaciation of the
whole body; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks;
swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the full posses
sionof the mental faculties, and while hope still whis
pers her flaUerii'g tale—cold extremities, and a pre
mature death.
For the various stage* of thia complaint, one ot the
most approved remedies ever yet discovered is
DR. RRLFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS.
This exceedingly powerful, and yet equally safe and
innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid
cures upon patients supposed to have been far advanc
©d in a confirmed Consumption, and who have exhibit
ed the appearances which usually indicate a fatal ter
mination of lie disorder.
As the Pills require in ordinary cases no confine
ment, they may be administered with confidence and
safety to ail ages and classes of people. Unexampled
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
the emaciated victim from the bed of disease, and re
storing him to the blessings 01 accustomed health and
activity.

Prepared by V. HERSTONS, near Frederick
town, Maryland.
Richmond. Va- July 15, 1830.
THE public will be pleased to understand that I was
the original discoverer of Judkins* Ointment, and
sole proprietor of the patent from September, 1817,
until the expiration of the same; but, having connect
ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I
permitted the Ointment to bear hia name. The term
of the patent having expired on the 26th June, I have
made an improvement in the same, and taken out a pa
tent thereon. . N* SHEPHERD.
Imposition having been practised upon the nub
lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of “Jud
kins* Ointment,” the proprietor avails himself of the
ny years, not only as a cure for that excruciating dis*
ease, but aaan excellent application for Stiffness of the <
Joints, Numbness, Sprains, Chilblains, &c.
(This article is considered so superior to every
thing else, and to possess such uncommon virtues, that
it is ordered from all parts of the country.]
nr> An Agent recently writes: “ Please send me a
further supply of Jebb’s Liniment the first opportuni.
ty—I shall probably sell a considerable quantity, as it
is recommended by some of our physicians very high
ly, although contrary to their rules and regulations to
give encouragement to such (or, patent) medicines.”
But is sr most decided proof of their confidence in its
invaluable properties
Another agent writes: “ I wish you to forward me
some more of Jebb’s Liniment, which has recommend

JUST received, a fresh supply of the above useful
Medicine, direct from Dr. Lee’s Dispensary.
12th mo 30th, 1833. W. STABLER.
The following extract is published by Dr. Lee’s au
thority, viz;—
Extract of a letter, written by a very respectable gen
tleman, residing in Baltimore, to the subscriber, who

particular reference, should any require it person
ally. SAM. H. P. LEE.
Baltimore, August, 1828.
Doctor S. H. P. Lee, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir—It 19 now upwards of twenty years that !
have used your New London Bilious Pills in my fami
ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of disease, and believe they sa* 1
ved many a long doctor’s bill by their early and timely
use. 1 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 manufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of
yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious
imitations 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
respact. Finding those I had without this test, I be
gan to suspect that “ all was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe
caries for your pills, with your written signature. 1
found many without this test, but none with it, until 1
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 I had always
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my
merely swallowing a certain number of small pills, and
being called a few exlra times to the purposes of eva
cuation, with the least possible sensation of pain, or
j exhaustion of bodily s rength, and without the tear of
I catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustomed habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of all
human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the
fact; and extensive use of them has already verified
its truth in this country.
These medicines cure by purging; and yet the weak,
the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the delicate, are
in a few days strengthened by their operation, because
they clear the body of its bad humours, and invariably
procure sound sleep. They are the safest and most
efficacious menicineto take to sea; preventing scurvy,
costiveness, &c,
The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are of great as
sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation of
bad humours; they soften, cleanse, and detach the
acrimonious phlegm; are cooling, and allay the thirst.
One, two, or three powders may be taken throughout
the day, mixed in halfa wine glass of water.

3HEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT
M ENT, (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 .n what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint
ment woid§ be a valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally Ml into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process-ne
vertheless, it might be prngated in this * '
tuation.as it might in some degree resemble the origi
nal—and in this way its good effects would he oblitera
ted. Under these considerations, I secured the origi
nal and certain remedy for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long baffled the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings of every description!
2d Sore legs and ulcersof long standing,
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythose
hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulcetated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by thename
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains ofthe joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds. -In this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
out of water;
8th Chilblains or parts affected by frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns and
scalds. U 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 yet known to the
medical faculty - It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as it does not contain the smallest atoig of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal th*
external sore, in consequence ofthe bones becoming
carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries,
increi.se 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

add, that the cure of a tumor called white swelling,
given over by the most distinguished physicians as in
curable, and which th ;y decided would, without ampu

HYGEIANISM.
THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our diseases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Bnowx Ukiversitt, Dec. 25, 1833»
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Higeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the Slate of Rhode
Island.
Sir—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com
pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a
brief statement of a cure, which, I think, I received
from the Hygeian Medicines. I g<ve publicity to the
same the more cheerfully; because thereby, perhaps,
l may be useful to some of my fellow-men, who may
be afflicted with a similar disease.
My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and that my real condition may be explicitly un3er
j stood, I state, in connexion with the relation of the
; cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
; tember, 1832, l caught a severe cold, which settled on
my lungs; I was confined to my room about one week,
with a fever, attended with considerable cough; my
cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining
my health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, having returned the evening be
I fore in usual health, l found myself bleed-ng at the
lungs. I had not, to my knowledge, received any hurt
or strain, to which the cause of this might be attribut
ed. I spat blood, occasionally, for four days; it left
me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap
petite, and withal, very weak
A few weeks determined that I was in a decline. I
received the attention of the most skilful Physicians,
who often seemed to check the progress of the dis
ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. But
reLpse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed to baffle ail human skill,
and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
months after the first attack, a “ tubercle” [small ul
cer] broke in the lnngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. 1 continued to decline twomonths longer, when
j I obtained the Hygeian Medicines. I had now been
unable to sit up a whole day, for four months and a
, half. My feet were cold and lifeless, sleep unsound,
com nignt sweats constant, tongue rurred, pulse in tne
j afternoon from seventy-five to one hundred per mi
nute, food produced great distress, appetite very
poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the heart,
attended with some cough, &c. &c. Such was my
| condition, when I first became acquainted with the
: Hygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi
' cines, four pills at a dose, ancT increased the doge dai
i ly, one up to the number of twelve. In about ten
days, my appetite became good, and food produced
no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing,
and in about forty days the symptoms of the disease
had nearly all disappeared
I took the medicine sixty days regularly every night,
averaging about ten pills at a dose; the greatest num
ber taken at any one time was fifteen. After this, 1
took about four doses a week, until I had taken abou*
thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored
to health, After 1 commenced the Hyg< ian, I took
no other medicine. One year from the first attack, I
was able to resume my studies in college, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease Hitherto I have been convalescent; and if
my strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I
have less pains, and am more free from temporary
sickness, than at any time since my earliest recollec
tion. Yours, with respect,
HORACE T. LOVE;
Dn H. Shephcard Moat.
Dear Sir—I wish to state that my sister, after severe
suffering, and employing a medical man three years,
was relieved by the U9e of the Universal Medicines
Her complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her
side; indeed, to use her own expression, her os on
one side had turned in, actually deformed. The pain
was a violent burning p tin, almost intolerable; so see
vere, that she could not sit up for upwards of three
years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers $ If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few,
doses of No. I and 2, alternately, about eight pills for
a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in
their use, she is now restored to health; and I have
no objection to this case being made public for the
benefit of others; and am. dear sir, yours trulv,
H. DYER.
Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834
Injustice to Dr. M,. her medical adviser, when he
heard her improvement in health, he recommended
perseverence in the use of he medicines.
This valuable Medicine, being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, as containing not one particle of mercurial,
mineral, or chemical substances, (all of which are un
congenial to the nature of man, and therefore destruc
tive to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly
harmless to the most tender age or weakest frame, un
der every stage of human suffering; the most pi asant
and benign in it- operation, and at the same time the J
most searching out the root of every complaint, how'
ever deep, and of performing a cure, that was ever
offered to the world. This wonderful effect, too, is
produced by the least trouble to the patients, by
DR. MEAD’S ANTI-DYSPECTIC or *Tr
MACH PILLS, ’
THE only medicine ever yet offered to ti
public, from which a radical and nernv
nent cure can be obtained of all those chm ■
states of derangement of the digestive or* mc
constituting that complicated disease
Dyspepsia. llet
The duty which the proprietor owes to ^ •
ety, has induced him to adopt this mode ofT'
culation, in order to give it a greater ran** *
publicity, that it may thereby become moro P!‘
tensively useful than it could possibly be w
it confined within the private practice of T*
individual whatever. The diseases conscou ’
on a morbid state of the stomach and bov!
are numerous, complicated, and, for the m! ♦
part, very difficult of cure. n'J''
The proprietor of these Pills is happy *,a j ,
ingit in his power to offer to all those who'a'
afflicted with the above complaint, a niedich'
in which the most unlimited confidence mav i
placed, and, for simplicity of composition
be given to children and patients of the mr*
delicate habit. In every chronic case ofstomT*
complaint, where the disease does not <Jen*M
on a schirrus, or cancerous state of that oria
(in which case no medicine whatever can d
any good,) these pills will effect a certain
speedy cure, after the stomach of the patient hv
been cloyed with magnesia and chalk. ^
drenched with all the bitter potions that Vr
could invent, to no purpose. They will nio,
effectually remove all sourness of the stonmc'
not merely by neutralizing the acid, but bv cor
recting that morbid state of the secretions whir
gives rise to it; and at the same time that the\
are giving tone to the organs of digestion, the
will renovate and give new life and vigor to id
whole system. Geo. Smith, Proprietor.

IMPROVED COMPOUND^CHLOKIxF
TOOTH WASH.
THE discovery of the Chloride of Soda anw
its uses, by Labarraque, of Paris, was a:,
addition to the resources of medicine of the ut
most importance as a neutralizing agent.
To counteract at once the principle of decay
which commencing imperceptibly, slowly ga
thers strength, and finally destroys, is the im
portant service which can be derived from the
use of the Chloride of Soda, when administered
with skill and care. The diseases of the Teeth
being, in the great majority of cases, the result
of nprderf and a oradual accumulation nf th*
principle above alluded to, it became obvious,
from the earliest experiments, that the Chloride
was the proper remedy and preferable to pow
ders, dentrifices, &c., of whatever kind or pre
tension. By a chemical analysis, it will be
found that the greater proportion of the Chlo
rine Compounds so extensively in use, do not
contain a particle of the Chloride of Soda, o:.
the agency of which their efficacy must nece
sarily depend.
This article is confidently offered to the ex
amination ofthe public, as possessing in an em
inent degree the virtue of neutralizing all that
is offensive in the mouth and breath, removing
soreness and sponginess of the gums,destroying
the taint of tobacco, or any other effluvia from
whatever cause. In short, this preparation will
be found to justify the various commendatory
notices and recommendations it has received.
