»re every year increasing their long established repu
tation. Thev have outlived many rival preparations,
and are continually gaining upon public confidence.
The Botanical Drops have been successfully admin
istered for many years, as a thorough remedy for that
well known and prevalent class of inveterate diseases
which originate from % vitiated habit of body, or an he
reditary predisposition in the patient, and generally
appear under the various and distressing shapes of
Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Leprosy, St Anthony's Fire,
Fever Sores, White Swellings, Scurvy, Foul and Ob
stinate Ulcers, Sore Legs and Eye#, Scald Head, and
Venereal Taint.
In the la3t 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
reditary disease on his offspring.
Dr. Relfe’s Botanical Drops are successfully used in
cases of violent eruptions after the measles—red
blotches—pimples in the face—festering eruptions on
the skin—and other diseases of the external surface;
and are one of the best Spring and Autumnal physics
known, to free the system from humors

SHEPHERD'S patent specific
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HERSTOMS, near Frederick
town, Maryland.
UicoMoao, V»- 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 tame; out, having connect- i i
ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I j |
permitted the Ointment to bear hii name. The term
of the patent having expired oh the 26th June, I have 11
made an improvement in the same, and taken oat a pa- |
tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD. ,
(£7 Imposition having been practised upon the nub- \
lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of •• Jud- t
kiris’ Ointment," the proprietor avails himself of the <
iulhority granted to Vun in liii letters patent, no*’to
salt the Ointment after his own name, Hencetortn u
will be known by the name of
M ENT, (Jormerly 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 what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that e '
ment would be a valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake o
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process ne
vertheless, it might be progated in this adulterated si
tout ion, 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 remedr for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long baffle J the akil, of me
dical science: . .
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing,
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlytnose
hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulceiated cancers; *
4th Felons; or what some people know by thename
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains of the joints; .
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate; . t . ,
7th Tetters of all kinds. In tins complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, rtfust keep the part
outof water;
8th Chilblains or parts affected bv frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns and
scalds. It eases tlie 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 vet known to tlie
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap.
plications, (is it does not contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay tlie patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
in ». Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
cxtciral sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious o> rotten, it will stop the progress of the canes,
increase the quantity of discharge, remove the offen
sive smell, and ease the pains.
It cures the worst F-rinds and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty-eight hour#

bad made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac* 1
Lure to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this

THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our diseases, spesk in a Isnguage which must carry
conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Browr Urivxrsitt, Dec. 25, 1833.
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the State of Rhode
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, 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 rosy
be afflicted with a similar disease.
My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and thst 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, I8V2,1 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 health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, having returned the evening be
fore in offikl health, I found myself bleed'1 ng at the
lungs. I had not. to my knowledge, received any hurt
or strain, to which the cause of this might he 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 was in a decline I
received the attention of the most skilful Physicians,
who often seemed to click the progress of the di«
case, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovety- But j
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 sttack, a *• tubercle” hmall ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline twomonths longer, when
I obtained Mu- Hygeian Medicines I bad now been
unable to sit up a whole day, for four months and a
half. Mv feet were cold and lifele--, 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. he. Such was my
condition, when I first oecame acquainted with the
Hygeian Medicines 1 commenced taking the medi
cine a, four pills at a .lose, and increase! 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 ubout forty days the symptoms of the disease
mm nearly nil m*a|>|fr:srcpu
I look the medicine sixty days regularly every night,
Averaging about ten pills at a dose; ti-e greatest num
ber taken at any one time was fifte* ' After this, I
took about four doses a week, until I had taken about
thirteen hundred pills wdien I found myself restored
to health. After I commenced the Hyg isn, I took
no other medicine. One year from tile (ir»t attack, i
wrai able to resume mv studi. s in college, where !
have since remained without any recurre xe of the
Jisetse Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; 3tid it
my strength i* not yet fully returned, I am certain I
have less pains, unJ am more free from temporary
sickness, than a* any time since my earliest recollec
tion. Yours, with respect,
Da II SiiRrnxARD Moat.
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 >s on
one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain
was a violent burning p.in, almost intolerable; so see!
verc, that she could not sit up for upwards of three i
years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers s If, and)
perhaps, over exertion with it. tftet using a few,
doses of No. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pilx for
a dose, the psin decreased, and, by perseverance in
their use, she is now restored to health; and I have
no objection to this case being nude public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, vuurs truly,

Injustice to l)r. M. hrr medical adviser, when he
heard het improvement in health, he recommended [
peraeverence in the use of he medicines.
This valuable Medicine, being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on outh, as containing not one particle of mercurial,
min. rtd. or chemical •uS«tances, (all of which ire un
congenial to th>* nature of tn»n, and therefore destruc
live io the luimm frame,) is found to be perfectly
hornless to the most teii-ler 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 out the root of every complaint, how
ever deep, and of perfoi ning u cure, that was ever
offered to the world. This wonderful effect, too, is
produced by the least troub.e to the patients, by
merely * wallowing a certain number of small pills, and
being ciUed a few exlra times to the purposes of eva
cuation, with the least possible sensation of pain, or j
exhaustion of bodily s rength, and without tht tear of
catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustomtd habits.
These pills cure all cast*, and cannot betaken 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
