Consumption!
AstSkna! f? Catarrh!
IN that long w»in of diiease* which see* to grow
with the growth of civilised society, Consumption
tsfcts the lead in its relentless inroads upon human
ibis dreadful disorder is easily overcome in its
earlier stages. It ir only when neglected that it ar
rives at the terrific maturity which so often baffles the
sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough
os the customary foifcrunner 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
symptom*—oppression of the breast; greenish and
bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shn
veiled extremeties, aud general emaciation of the
whole body; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks;
swollen feet aud legs; anti at last, in the full posses
sionpf the mental faculties, and while hope still wins,
pers her flattering tale-cold extremities, and a pre
mature death.
For the various stage! of this complaint, one of the
most aDDrovecPreraedies ever yet discovered is

Sir—My son having been afflicted for five years
with white swelling, and having applied every reme
dy recommended by the moat eminent physicians
within mv reach without success, I at length procured
one jug of Dr Judkins* Patent Specific Ointment, and
made the application according to the directions ac
companying the Ointment, and state, for the benefit
of the afflicted, that before one jug was used, a perfect
cure was effected. My son has enjoyed good health
ever since. 1 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.

to communicate to yon the good effect with which 1
have u*ed the Ointment invented by a Mr. Judkins,
and which I now understand is made and sold by
agents appointed by yourself, I have applied this
Ointment during the last three years to every species
of tumor and wound, without failure to produce a cure
in every instance. I 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 by the most distinguished physicians a9 in
curable, and whichth )y decided would, withoutampu
tation, prove fatalto the patient, was, under my imme

wounded, and exhibited one dreadfully ulcerated sur
face from the knee to the foot, and which, lor more
than two years,had been considered incurable, was ef
fectually cured by the application of Judkins* Oint

immediate notice and management, as a decided evi

and ofulcers: 1 have experienced, as decidedly, the
good effect ofthis remedy in the cure of Felons, and
of every species of fresh wound. It seems to me that
any one who wll observe on the operation of this Oint

Doctor S. H. P, Lee, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Bilious Pills in n^fami'
ly, and alway s found them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of disease, and believe they sa«
ved many a long doctor’s bill by their early and timely 1
use. i never found their accustomed certainty to vary
in their operation and effects until a few months past; i
and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve- 1
ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you ^
had made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac 1
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this 1
impression, 1 accidentally saw an advertisement of *
yours in a New Yorfc newspaper, designating spurious i
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 *
respaet. Finding those I had without this test, I be- t
ganto suspect that “ all was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apotbe-.
caries for your pills, with your written signature. I
found many without this teat, but none with it, until 1
came to the Messrs. Keerls’, who assured me they had 1
them direct from you. 4 procured a box, and on using J

rHB following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGBf AN MBD1CINBS in the cure of
hit diseases, speak 4n 4 language which must carry
:onviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Bnoww Uxitk&uty, Pec. 25, 1833*
ro Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeiao Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the State of Rhode
Island.
8w—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com
pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a
brief statement of u cure, which, I think, I received
From the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the
same the more cheerfully,- because thereby, perhaps,
I 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 under
stood, 1 state, in connexion with tbe relation of the
cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
tember, 1832,1 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, 1 was regaining
my health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, baviog returned the evening be
fore in usual health, I found myself bleeding at the
lungs. I had not, to my knowledge, received any hurt
or strain, to which the cause of this might he 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 tew weeks deter mined 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
reUpse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed to buffie all human skill,
and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
months after the first sttack, a M tubercle” [small ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which 1 spat blood, one
day. 1 continued to decline two months longer, when
I obtained the llygeian Medicines. I had now been
unable to sit up a whole dsy, for four months and a
half. My feet were cold and lifeless, sleep unsound,
cold night sweats constant, tongue furred, pulse in the
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. Sic. Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted with the
llygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi
cines, four pills at a dose, and* increased the dose dai
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, I
took about four doses a week, until I had taken about
thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored
to health. After I commenced the Hyg ian, l 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,

Dear.Sir—I wish to state that my sister, after severe
suffering, and employing a medical man three years,
was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicines.
Her complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her
9ide; indeed,-to use her own expression, her .is on
one side had turned in, actually deformed. The pain
was a violent burning pain, 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, 1 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 1 have
no objection to this case being made public for the
benefit of others; and am, deaf sir, yours truly,
' H. DYER.
Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834
In justice 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 >ne 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 ofhuman suffering; the most pleasant
and benign in it- operation, and at the same time the
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
merely swallowing a certain number of small pills, and
being called a few extra times to the purposes of eva
cuation, with the least possible sensation’ of pain, or
exhaustion of bodily strength, and without the fear of
catchtng cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustomed habits.
These jfills cure all cases, and cannot betaken 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 menicine to 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
