are every year increasing their long established repu
tation. They have outlived many rival Dreparations,
and are continually gaining upon public confidence.
The Botanical Drops have been auccessfully admin
istered for maq> 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 be*
reditary predisposition in the patient, and generally
appear under the various and distressing shapes of
Scrofula, Salt Kheum, Leprosy, St. Anthony’s Fire,
Fever Sores, White Swellings. Scurvy, Fonl 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
-editary disease on his offspring
Dr. Itelfe’s Botanical Drops are successfully used in
cases of violent eruptions after the measles—red
olotches—pimples on the face—festering eruptions on
the skin—and other diseases of the external surface;
and me one of the best Spring and Autumnal physics
known, to free the system from humors.
A physician of eminence, who had witness *d the ef
ficacy of this article, had the candor recently to ack

The Antiseptic Dentrifice is exempt from acid and
other deleterious ingredients, which too .frequently
enter the composition of tooth powders in common
use, and it whitens the enamel of the teeth without
doing it the least injury. The regular use of this ad
mired powder, by purifying the mouth and preventing
the accumulation of tartar, operates as the be9t pre
ventive of the Tooth Ache. The Uentrifice removes
discolorations, and restores the beautiful native white
ness of the enamel. As us application braces and
strengthens the Gums, it secures to them their healthy
and florid hue, and, by removing all offensive foreign
accumulations from the teeth, preserves the natural
sweetness of the breath. Price 50 cents

complaints peculiar to the female part of the

by the administration of the Aromatic Pills, originally
prescribed and compounded by Ur. Ilelfe. They
cleanse the blood from those disorders of the female
constitution, for which the pills are an effectual speci

operations of the sanguferous system, and rectify the
disordered habits. The proprietor’s confidence in the
superior excellence of this equally innocent and pow

timony from many restored patients. He can assure
this portion of the public, that when
are regularly taken, according to the directions, ac

ed healthy habits, and restore to the pallid counte
nance the natural glow of health and good spirits.
Married ladies will find the pills equally useful, ex

taken; neither must they be taken by persons of hec

OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HURSTONS, near Frederick
town, Maryland.
_ Ricanoxu. Va. July 15, 1830.
^M^HE public will be pleased to understand that I was
A the original discoverer of Judkins’ Ointment, and
sole proprietor of the patent from September, 1817,
until the expiration of the samei out, having connect
ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I I
permitted the Ointment to bear his name. The term
of the patent having expired on the 26th June, 1 have
made an improvement in the same, and taken oat a pa-'
tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD.
dj* 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
authority granted to him in hi* letters patent, now to
call the Ointment after hia own name. Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
MENT, (formerly JuJkina1.)
When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and
had, in several instances, experienced it* good effects,
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 sj
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 baffleJ the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore leg* and ulcers of long standing,
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythose
hardened tumors in woman’s breasts, wliieh oftentimes
terminate in ulcetated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by the name
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains of the 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
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
short time.
For inflamed women's breasts and glandular swel
lings, it is superior to any medicine yet known to the
mrdical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (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 stand
ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
exten-al 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 offen
sive smell, and ease the pains.
It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty-eight hours

iSVr —My son having been afflicted for five years
with white swelling, and having applied every reme
dy recommended by the most eminent physicians
jvithin my reach without success, I at length procured
one jug of Ibr 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
core was effected. My son lias enjoyed good health
ever since. I 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
ment. Respectfully, John Cocks

to communicate to you the good effect with which I
haveused the Ointment invented by a Ur. Judkins,
and which I now understand is made and sold by
agents appointed bv yourself, 1 have applied this
Ointment during the last three year* 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
wbatit may; and I hare 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 tbe most distinguished physicians as in
curable, and which th ;y d-.cided would, without ampu*
tation, prove fatalto thepatient, was, under my imme
diate notice, effected by the use of Judkins’ Ointment,
and the patient isin fine health. Hislimb affectedby

ment. i mention these two cases, wiiichfeilunder my i
immediate notice and management, as a decided evi

and ofulcera* I 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 tbe operation of this Oint

Doctor S. H. P. Lee, New London, Uonn.
Dear Sia—It is now upwards of twenty year* that I
have used your New London Bilious Pills in my fami
ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al
most everv description of diseaae, and believe they sa«
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 pastj i
| and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve
ry instance of usingthem, I began to conclude that you j i
| had made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac- j1
! ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this j
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of j 1
yours in a New YorX newspaper, designating spurious 1
imitations from your own manufacture, by having your 1
WHITTEN 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- t
gan to suspect that “ ail was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe
caries for your pi Us, with your written signature. 1
found many without this teat, but none with it, until 1
came to the Messrs. Keerls', who assured me they bad -
them direct from you. 1 procured a box, and on using s
them, found the same effects from them 1 had always a
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my- S
»e*fin wpoMcion of a medicine I so highly prize, that
thst I cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this
(ty To avoid the imposition of counterfeit* and spu
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, im
mediately under my printed name, they are genuine,
and prepared by me; but if oxlt the printed name is
affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

HrOWX UjflVERSITI. Pec. ^5, 1811.
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for tits Uvgeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the ?iate of ItliuJe
Sin—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men corn
pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a
brief statement of u cure, which, I think, f received
from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the
same the more cheerfully, because thereby, perhaps,
I maybe 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 un ler
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; 1 was confined to my room about one week,
( with a fever, attended with considerable cough; my
cough soon abated, anil apparently, I was regaining
my health; 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.
I pttile, and withal, very weak
| A few* weeks determined that I was in a decline I
j received the attention of the most skilful Physicians,
I who often seemed to check the progress of the dis
; case, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. But
| rel-pse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
i than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill,
j and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
| months after the first attack, a " tubercle” [small ul
I cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
; day. I continued to decline twomonths longer, when
1 obtained the Hygeian Medicines. 1 had now been
1 unable to sit up a whole day, 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, he. &c. Such whs 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 fo id produced
no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing,
and in about forty dayB the symptoms of the disease
had nearly all disappeared
1 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 about
thirteen hundred pills, when I found myaelf restored
to health. After I commenced the llyg-un, l took
no other medicine. One year from the first attack, t
w-bs able to resume mv studi ■ s in college, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease. Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and it
m> 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,

Hear Sir—1 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 is on
one side had turned in, actu ally 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. Aftet using a few,
doses of (Mo. I and 2, alternately, about eight pihs for
a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in
their use, she is now resto-e.l to health; and 1 have
no objection to this case being made public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours trulv,

This valuable Medicine, being composed only of

| on oath, *9 containing not me particle of mercurial,
; mineral, or chemical substance", (all of which are un
! congenial to the nature of man, and therefore destruc

;! 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 w as ever
j 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

! citation, with the least possible sensation of pain, or
j exhaustion of bodily strength, and without the fear of
I catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
j different from their accustomed habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to i
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of alii
human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the 1
fact; and extensive use of them lias already verified '
| Its truth in this country.
These medicines cure by purging; and yet the weak,
! the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, (he delicate, are
in a few days strengthened by their operation, beca ise
! 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,
