SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HERSTONS, near Frederick•
town, Maryland.
HicKNoai), Va< July 15, 1850.
rilHE public will be pleased to underat and that 1 vu
JL the original discoverer of Judkins* Ointment, and
aole proprietor of the patent fro® September, 1817,
until the expiration of the same* but, having connect
ed myself with Or. JudkM in the commencement, I
permitted the Ointment tonear hia name, rhe term
of the patent having expired on the 26th Juno, 1 have
made an improvement in the same, and taken out a pa
tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD.
OC^ Imposition having been practised upon the nub '
lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of “ jud-1i
kina' Ointment,” the proprietor avails himself of the 1
mthority granted to him in bi« letter* p*tent, now to
:%ll the Ointment after hi* own name. Henceforth it
wall be known by the Mae of
SHEPHERD'S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT
MENT, (formerly Judkint1.)
When I first made nod prepared this Ointment, and
bad, in *evenal instance*, experienced it* Rood effect*,
I sent it to sevendmhysieiana, with instructions in what
caqps to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint
ment would be n valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, aome of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the proce*a—ne
vertheless, it might be progated in thia 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 baffled the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore lew and ulcers of long standing,
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularly those
hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulcetated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by the name
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains ofthe joints;
6th Sprains ana bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds. In this comnlaintthe pa*
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the pari
out of water;
8th Chilblains or parts affected bv frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns 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 yet known to the
medical faculty\ It is much safer than mercurial ap*
plication”, (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 sores of many years aland
ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent tu heal the
extei ’Sl sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious oi rotten, it will atop the progress of the caries,
increise the quantity of discharge, remove the often*
sive smell, and ease the pains.
It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica*
tion of forty-eight hours

Dbai Srm —It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Bilious Hills in my fami
ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of disease, and believe they ss*
ved many along doctor’s bill by their early and timely
use. I never found their accustomed certainty te 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
bad 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
reapoct. Finding those I had without this teat, I be
gan to auspect 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 teat, but none with it, until I
eame to the Messrs. Keerla*, who assured me they had
them direct from you. I procured t box, and on using
hem, found the same effects from them I had always
wperie need, and tm so much rejoiced on finding my
iclfin possession of a ineJicine I so highly p.ize, that
that I cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this
information.

HTGEIANISM
THE following testimonials of the aupevior efficacy
of the II YliElAN MEDIC INKS in the cure of
our disease*, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds of the moat skeptical:—
Baows UaivaaaiTT, Dec. 25, 18.1:3*
To Mr. Samuel Young. Agent for the ll>geian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the State of Rhode
Island.
Sib—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 liygeran 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 alHicted with a similar disease.
Ily complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and that my real condition may be explicitly under
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
courae of the night, having returned the evening be
I fore in usual health. I found myself ble^d’-ng it 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 dais; it left
me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap
petite, and withal, very weak
A few weeks determined that I waa in a decline I
tveeived the attention of the moat skilful Physicians,
who often seemed toche k the progress of the dis
ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. But
re! ipse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill,
and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
months after the first attack, a " tubercle” fimall ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. 1 continued to decline two months longer, whe n
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 lifele-i, sleep unsound,
cold night sweats constant, tongue furred, pulse in the
afternoon from seventy-five to one hundred per ini
nute, fond produced great distress, appetite verv
poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the heart,
attended with some cough, .Ac. ike. Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted \v * tb*
Hvgeian Medicines I commenced taking Mie i, d
cincs, four pills at a dose, and increase 1 the do:e
ly, one up to the number of twelve. In about «•
(lays, my appetite became good, and fo id produce
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 siaty days regularly every night,
averaging about ten pills at a dose; the greatest num
ber taken at any one time was fit teen. After this, I
took about four doses a week, until I had taken about
thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored
lo health. After I commenced the fl-g ian, I took
no other medicine. One year from the first sttack, >
wus able to reftitme my studi s in college, wh'-re 1
luve since remained without any recurrence of the
disease Hitherto l have been convalescent; and it
iny strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I
nave less pains, and am more free from temporary
sickness, loan at any time since my earliest recollec
tion. fours, With respect,
HORACE T. LOVE.

Dear Sir—1 wuh to state that my sister, after revere
suffering, and employing a medical man three years,
was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicines.
Hrr complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her
side; indeed, to u»e her o.yu expression, her >s on
one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain
was a violent humid)' p«in, almost intolerable; so sec
veie, that she could not sit up for upwards of three
years- It was occasioned by over-lacing hers o If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few,
doses of No. 1 and 2, niter-lately, shout eight pd<s for
a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in
their use, she it »‘>w restored to health; and 1 have
no objection to tins c-i-e being made public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly,
H. DYEH.

Injustice to Dr. M,. her medical adviser, when he
liearu 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 me particle of mercurial,
mineral, or chemical substances, (all of which *r> un
congenial to the nature of man, and therefore destine
live to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly
harmless to the mos*. tender age or weakest frame, uu
der every stage of human suffering; the most pi asant
and benign in its operation, and at the same lime the
most searching out the root of every complaint, how
ever deep, and of perfutminga 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 tear of
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 inthia 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 must
efficacious menicine to take to sea; preventing scurvy,
costivenets, fee.
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, mid allay the thirst.
One, two, or three powders may be taken throughout
the day, mixed in half a wine glass of water.
