XN that loug train of diseases which seem to grow with the growth of civilized society, Consumption takes the lead in its relentless inroads upon human life, yet ihis dreadful disorder is easily overcome in its earlier stages. It is only when neglected that it ar rives at the terrific maturity whl?h so often baffles the sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cougli ia the 'customary forerunner 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 symptoms—oppression of the breast} gTeenish and bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shri veiled exiremetits, and general emaciation of the whole body; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks; swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the full posses •ion of the mental faculties, and while hope still whis pers her flattering tale—cold extremities, and a pre mature death.

SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,) Prepared by C. HERSTONS, near Frederick town, Maryland. Kxchxobv. Va- July 15, 1830. THE public will be pleased to understand that 1 wai the original discoverer of Judkins' Ointment, and •ole proprietor of the patent from September, 1817, until the expiration of the same; but, having connect ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, 1 permitted the Ointment to bear his name. The term of the patent having expired on the 26tn June, I have made an improvement in the same, and taken oat a pa tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD. Imposition having been practised upon the nub - J lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of •• Jud< i kins' Ointment," the proprietor avails himself of the authority granted to Mm in hi? letters patent, now to call the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it will be known by the name of SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT MENT, (formerly Judkins'.) When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and had, in several instances, experienced its good effects, ( sent it to several physicians, with instructions in «that 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 prngated 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, tome of which have so long baffle J the skill of me dical science: . . 1st White swellings of every description; 2d Sore less and ulcers of long standing, 3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythose hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes j terminate in ulceiated cancers; 4th Felons; or what some people know by the name of catarrhs, of every description. 5th Rheumatic pains ofthe joints; 6th Sprains and bruiscB 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 1 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 j 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 | external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming j ; carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries, j increase the quantity of discharge, remove the offen- j give smell, and ease the pains It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica- ! tion of forty-eight hours. CERTIFICATES. From the Hon. John Cache, Member of the House of Re presentatives in Congress. WisaiHOTuN, March 22, 1826 Sir — My son having been afflicted for five years with white swelling, and having applied every reme dy recommended by the most eminent physicians j 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, tlut before one jug was used, a perfect cure was effected. My son has enjoyed good health ever since. I have no doubt that to tlie Ointment alone he is indebted; for nothing else was used for more than nine months before tne application of the Oinl rnent. Respectfully, Joan Cocks. j Dr. Win- Gunton, Washington City. I From L P. W. Batch, Esq Counsellor at Law, Fade rick. Md FnruEkicK, Md. May 6,1831. Mr. C Herstons—l deem it proper to state, for the 1 benefit of the public, that, several years since, two of my children were affected with scald head of an inve terate character. My fimily physician, hr John T. Wilson, of Leesburg, Va who was very skilful and ju * diriuus 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, vour obedient servant, L- P- W. Ihi.cu. From the Honorable John Taliaferro, Member of Cun great, dated « AsamaTOK, Janua*y 22,1829 Sir—It Iirs 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, and which I now understand is made and sold ?»y agents appointed by yourself, 1 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 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 the most distinguished physicians as in curable. and whichth -y decided would, withoutampu tation, prove fatalto the patient, was, under my imme diate notice, effected bytheuse of Judkins’ Ointment, and the patient is in fine health- Hialimb affected by the tumor being restored to a perfectstate of joutid 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 cun d by the application of JudKins’ Oir*t* ment. I mention these two cases, whichfellundermy immediate notice and management, as a Jecided evi dence of the efficacy of this remedy in cases of tumor and ofuicersi I haveexpe ienced, as decidedly, the good effect of this remedy in the cure of Felons, and of every species of fresh wound. It seems to me that any one who wil 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, lain, sir, very respectfully, JOH 5 I A LI A rER 110 N. II. To m ire fully guard the public, (the proprie tor) C.

SAM. H. P. LEE. Baltikori, August, 1828. Doctor S. H. P. Lit, New London, Com*. Dub Sim—It is now upwards of twenty years that l have used your N'ew London Bilious Pills in my fami ly, and always 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 use. I never found their accustomed certainty to vary in their operation and effects until a few months pastj ■ and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve ; ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you i bad made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac j ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this I impression, 1 accidentally saw an advertisement of | yours in a New York 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 I respect Finding those I had without this test, I be* gau to suspect that “ all was not fair in medicine, as well ss in politics, snd called at several of our apothe caries for your pills, with your written signature. 1 found many without this test, but none with it, until 1 came to the Messrs Keerls’, win? assured me they had tb$m direct from you. I procured t box, and on using them, found the same effects from them 1 had always experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my se* fin sjpoascion or a medicine I so highly prize, that j that 1 cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this i information. QC^ To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu- | rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has only to examine the bill of directions ervering 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 ia affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

" HYQEIANISM. j THE 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:— Drown University, Dec. 25, 183.3: To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege table Universal Medicines, for the State of Rhode Island. Sir—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, t 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 unler stood, 1 state, in connexion with the relation of the cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep tember, 18.32,1 caught a severe cold, which settled on my luugs; f 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 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 1 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 rel-pse 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 til j cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one ! day. I continued to decline twomonths longer, when , 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 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 I poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the heart, , attended with some cough, fcc. &c. Such was my condition, when I first became acquainted with the Hygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi ' cincs, four pills at a dose, and increased the dose dai 1 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 and refreshing, 1 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 hundrt d pill:, when I found myself restored to health. After I commenced the Hyg. ian, 1 took i no other medicine. One year from the first attack, I I was able to resume mv studies in college, where I ! have since remained without any recurrence of the ' disease Hitherto I have been convalescent; and it j m) 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 i tion. fours, with respect, HORACE T. LOVE. | l)n H. Shiphcard Moat Dear Sir—1 wish to state that my sister, after severe suffering1, ami employing a medical man three years, was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicines. IkT complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her side; indeed, to use her own expression, her .is on one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain was a violent burning p-.in, almost intolerable; so see vere, that <-he could not sit up upwards of three years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers © If, and perhaps, over exertion with it. \fter using a few, doses of Mo. 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 cn-e being made public for the benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly, H DYKH.
