are every year increasing their long established repu
tation. They hare outlived many rival preparations,
and are continually gaining upon public confidence.
The Botanical Drops have been successfully admin
istered for manv years, as a thorough remedy for that
well known and prevalent class of inveterate diseases
which originate from a vitiated habit of body, or an he
reditary predisposition in the patient, and generally
appear under the various and diatreasmgshapesof
Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Leprosy, St. Anthony’s Fire,
Fever Sores, White Swellings, Scurvy, Fool and Ob
stinate Ulcers, Sore Legs and Eyes, Scald Head, and
Venereal Taint.
In the last mentioned condition of the system, the
Botanical Drops will be found to eradicate the lurk
ing poison, where mercury has totally failed, and thus
prevent the patient from entailing the seeds of an he
redibsry disease on his offspring
Dr. Relfe's Botanical Drops are successfully used in
cages 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 b$st Spring and Autumnal physics
known, to free the system from humors.
A physician of eminence, who had witness'd the ef
ficaev 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 deservedly to stand at

Asthma! A* Catarrh!
IN that long irain of diseases which seem to grow
with the growth of civilized society, Consumption
tikes 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
rives 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, ii sure to be
reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
symptoms—oppression of the breasts greenish and
bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shri
veiled extremetiea, and general era., .ation of the
whole body; prostration of strength; fiualied cheeks;
swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the full posses
sion of the mental faculties, aod while hope still wins,
pers her flattering tale—cold extremities, and a pre
mature death.
For the various stages of this complaint, one of the
most approved remedies ever yet discovered is
Tnis exceedingly powerful, and yet equally safe and
innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid

SHEPHERD’S patent specific
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HERSTONS, near Frederick•
town, Maryland.
Bictuoao. 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, 1 have
made an improvement in the same, and uken out a pa-i
tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD.
Imposition having been practised upon the nub- i
lie bv a spurious article, bearing the name of “ jud-1
kins' Ointment,” tbe proprietor avails himself of the
authority granted to him in hi# Icttera patent, now to i
call the Ointment after his oarn name. Henceforth it ]
will be known by the name of
MENT, (formerly Judkim'.)
When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and
had, in several instances, experienced its good effect*,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what
cases to apply H, 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
I nal— and in this way its good effects would be oblitera
ted- Under these considerations, I aeeured the origi
I nal and certain remedy for those obstinate diseases,
! some of which have so long baffle J the sk»l* ofme
i dies) science: . .
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs 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 pvery description. .
5th Rheumatic pains ofthe joints; #
| 6th Sprains and bruises ofevery 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
I out of water;
8th Chilblains or parts affected by frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns and
; scalds. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a
i short time. . , , , ,
I For inflamed women’* 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 atom 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 the
j external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
| carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries,
'increise the quantity of discharge, remove the often
| five smell, and ease the pains
It cure* the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica
tion of fortv-eiirht hours

presentatives in Congress.
>Y ashinotok, March 22, 1826.
Sir — My son having been afflicted for five yean
with white swelling, and having applied evrry reme
dy recommended hy the most eminent physicians
within my 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. I have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
he is indebted! for nothing else was used for more
j than nine months before the application of the Oint
ment. liespectfully, Jobs Cocke.

Fueuerick, Md. May 6,1831.
Mr. C Her stuns—I deem it proper to state, for the
benefit of the public, that, several years since, two of
r.ry children were affected with scald head of an inve
iprate character. My family physician, Dr John T.
Wiison, of Leesburg, Va. who was very skilful and ju
du ious in his practice, in vain endeavored by every
means'to effect a cure- At length Judkins’ Ointment
was applied, and the affection was permanently reliev
ed. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
L. P. W. Uaixh.
From the Honorable John Taliaferro, Member of Con
gress, dated
WasBiiroTOK, January 22,1829.
Sik—It has been my wish, fora considerable time,
to communicate to you the good effect with which I
have used the Ointment invented by a Mr. Judkins,
snd which 1 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. 1 consider it the most decided and
efficient remedy in all cases of tumor, be the cause
wbatit may« 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,
given over by thf most distinguished physicians as in
curable. and which th ;y decided would, without ampu
tation, prove fatalto the patient, was, under my imme
diate notice, effected bytheuse of Judkins’Ointment,
and the patient is in fine health. His limb affected by
the tumor being restored to a perfectstate of sound
ness. Also that the leg of an aged man which had been
wounded, and exhibited one dreadfully ulcerated sur
face from the knee to the foot, and which, for more
than two years,had been considered incurable, wasef
fectually cured by the application of Judkins’ Oint
ment. I mention these two cases, which fell under my
immediate notice and management, as a decided evi
dence of the efficacy oftlus remedy in caaea of tumor
and ofulcern I have expe.ienced, as decidedly, the
good effect of this remedy in the cure of Felons, and
of every specie- of fresh wound. It seems to me that
any one who wll observe on the operation of this Oint
ment, must be satisfied as to its beneficial effect I can
with the utmost confidence recommend the use ofthis
valuable remedy. lam, sir, very respectfully,

Doctor S. H. P. I.**, New London, Conn.
Dxa« Sib—It is now upwards of twenty yesrs that I
have used your New London Bilious Pills in my fami
ly, and alwayafound them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of di-ease, and believe they sa*
ved many’ a long doctor’s bill by 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 usingthem, I began to conclude that you
i had made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac
! ture to mercenary at\d 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
respect. Finding those I bid without this test, I be
gan to suspect that “ all was not fair in medicine, as
well as iB politics, snd called at several of our apothe
caries for your pills, with your written signature, 1
found many without this teat, but noae with it, until 1
came to the Messrs. Keerls’, who assured me they had
them direct from you. 1 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
»e*fio possession of • medicine 1 *o highly prize, t*i%t l
that I cannot, ia justice, refrain from giving you tbi* !
OCT To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu- j
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, ira* I
mediately under ray printed name, they are genuine, |
and prepared by me* but if o»lt the printed name is
affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

HE following testimonial* of the superior efficacy
of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our diseases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the mind* of the most skeptical:—
Brown University, Dec. 25, 1833j
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the H>geian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for tbe State of Rhode
Sin—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 ilygeian 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 unler
i stood, 1 state, in connexion with the relation of the
1 cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
I temher, 1812,1 caught a severe cold, which settled on
I 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
i my health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of rhe night, having returned the evening be
fore in usual health. I found myself bletd'ng at the
j lungs, I had not, to my knowledge, received any hurt
I or strain, to which the cause of this might be attribut
j ed. I spat blood, occasionally, for four days; it left
j me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap
I 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 hop&jfcfrspeedy recovery. Dut
rel pse upon relapse, airoWch 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” [imall ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline two months longer, when
j I obtained the Ilygeian Medicinea. 1 had now been
I unable to sit up a whole day, for four months and a
J half. My feet were cold and lifele»s 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, f*c. he Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted with the
! Ilygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi
j cinea, four pills at a dose, an l increased the dose dai
ly, one up to the number of twelve. In about ten
days, my appetite became good, and foid produc -d
no distress, sleep soon became sound e.v] r«-fr- iv • ,
and in about forty days tbe symptoms of the '. • jv
hid nearly all disappeared.
I took the medicine sixty days regularly e. sbt,
averaging about ten pills at a dose; the gre im
ber taken at any one time was fifteen Afur is, 1
took about four doses a week, until I had taker, d-iout
thirteen hundred pills, when 1 found myself restored
to health. After I commenced the Hyg'-ian, I took
no other medicine. One year from the first attack, f
was able to resume my studies in college, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and if
my strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I
nave less pains, and am more free from temporary
sickness* than at any time since my earliest recollec*
tion. Yours, with respect,
Dr H. ShspbiaDD Moat.
Dear Sir—l 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 >• 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-iacing hers o 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 I have
no objection to this cane being made public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours trulv,
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 Medicin* being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, aa 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 pl asant
> 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 tear of
catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustomtd habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of ail
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 th<gr 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,
cosiivencss, &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
