OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HERS TO NS, near Frederick•
town, Maryland*
tticraoas. Va- July 15, 1830.
fpHE public will be pleased to understand that 1 was
X the original discoverer of Judkins* Ointment, and
sole proprietor of tke patent from September, 181T,
until the expiration of the same; but, having connect
ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I
permitted the Ointment to bear his name. The term
of the patent having expired oh the 26th June, I have i
made an improvement in the same, and taken oat a pa- i
tent thereon. N. 8H£PH£Kd. <
Imposition having been practised upon the pub- \
he by a spurious article, bearing tke name of " Jud- |
kina' Ointment,'* the proprietor avails himself of the *
authority grantad to him in hit letter* patent, now to
call the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
MENT, (formerly Judkint'J
When I first mode and prepared thia Ointment* and
had, in several instances, experienced ita good effect a,
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 be 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 baffled the skill 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 the name
of catarrhs, of every description.
Sth Rheumatic pains ofthe joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of allkinds. In this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
out of water;
8th Chilblains or partsaffected by froat.
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 yet known to the
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as it does net contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Oimment has cured sores of many years stand
ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
external aore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious oi 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, I at length procured
one jug of Dr Judkins' Patent Specific Ointment, and
made tne application according to the directions ac
companying the Ointment, and state, for the benefit
ofthe afflicted, that before one jug was used, a perfect
cure was effected. My son has enjoyed good health
ever since. I have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
be is indebted; for nothing else was used for more
than nine months before the application of the Oint
ment. Respectfully, Johs Cocki

and which 1 m# uiderstund is made and sold by

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 mayi and I 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,
piven overbv the moat distinguished physicians aa in
curable, and which »h :y decided would, withoutampu

rfIHE following testimonials of the superior efficacy
JL of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our dileases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Baowir UwivaasiTr, Dec. 25, 1833*
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the Slate of Rhode
Sim—uraiituae 10 me ureu rreserver 01
pel* me, in compliance with your requestr to give a
brief statement of m cure, which, I think, I received
from the Hygeian Medicine*. 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, I state, in connexion with the 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, I was regaining
my healthi when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, having 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 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
relapse 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" [small ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline two months longer, when
I obtained the Hygeian Medicines. 1 had now been
unable to sit up a whole day, for four months and »
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, Ac. Ac. Such was my
condition, when 1 first became acquainted with the
Hygeian Medicines- I commenced taking the medi
cines, four pills at a dose, and I increased the dose dai
ly, one up to the number of twelve. In about ten
days, my appetite became good, and fo »d produced
no distress, sleep soon became sound snd 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 H-. g. ian. I took
no other medicine. One year from the first -Hack, I
was able to resume my studi-a in college wh<-re I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease (liili*. rto 1 have been convalescent; and it

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
side? indeed, to use her own expression, her ,»a on
one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain
was a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so see
veie, that she could not ait up for upwards of three
years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hrrs e If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. \fter using a few,
doses of So. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pills for
a do*e, 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 other*; and am, dear air, yours truly,
Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834
Injustice to Dr. M., her m-dieal adviser, when be
beard 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
tire 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
most searching ou» 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 exiled 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 in this country.
