DR. RRLFE’S
o? Botanical Drops!
are every year increasing their long established repu
tation. They 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 disease*
which originate from a 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, Lepnsv, St Anthony’s Fir?,
Fever Sores, White Swellings, Scurvy, Foul and Ob
stinate Ulcers, Sore Legs and Ey«.s, Scald Head, and
Venereal Faint.
lathe last mentioned condition < f the system, the
Botanical Drops will be found to eradicate the Hurt
ing poison, where mercury has totallv Tailed, and thus
prevent the patient from entailing the seeds of an he
reditary disease on his offspring.
Dr. Relfe*9 Botanical Drop* are successfully used in
cases of violent eruptions after the measles —red
blotches—pimples on the face—festering emotions on
the skin—and other diseases of the external surface;
and are one of the best Spring and Autumnal physics
known, to free the s>stem from humors
A physician of eminence, who had witness-d the ef
ficacy of this article, hut the candor recently to ack
nowieJge to the proprietor, that he considered it the
best me licine known, for the complaints for which it
is intended, and that it ought deserved'v to stand at
the head of the whole c’assofsuch remedies.

WHITE TEETH! AND HEALTHY OTTMS!
TrlOSK who would retain or restore these desirable
personal advantages, are assured that no compo
aition can be obtained superior t the
BRITISH ANTISEPTIC DENTRIFICE.
This is an elegant and pleasant preparation in every
respect, and has, for many >e*r< pa-t, given universal
satisfaction wherever it has been used
The Antiseptic Dentrifice is exempt from acid and
other deleterious ingre iients. which too .frequently
enter the composition of tooth powder* in common
use, and it whdens the enamel of the teeth without
doing it the least injury. The regular use of this ad
mired powder, by purifying the mouth an.l preventing
the accumulation of tartar, operates as the be^t pre
ventive of the Tooth Ache. The Dentrifice removes
discolorations, and restores the beautiful native white
ness of the enamel. As its application braces and
strengthens the Gums, it secures to them their healthy
and florid hue, anJ, by removing all offensive foreign
accumulations from the teeth, preserves the natural
sweetness of the breath. Pric^ 5'J cents.

Consumption!
Asthma! »V Catarrh!
IN that long 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 this dreadful disorder is easily overcome in its
earlier stages. It is only when neglected that it ar
rives at the terrific maturity wht-h so often baffles the
sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough
is the customary forerunner of the pulmonary cun
sumption. Improper neglect in the timely adminis
tration of simple and salutary remedies, is sure to be
reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
aymptoms—oppression of the breast; greenish and
blooJy spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shri
veiled extremeties, snd general - emacia'ion of the
whole bodv; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks;
swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the full posses
won of the mental faculties, and while hope still whis
pers her flattering tale—cold ext.emitiea, and a pre
mature death.
For the various stages of this complaint, one of the
most approved remedies ever vet discovered is
DR. RELFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS.
This exceedingly powerful, and yet equally safe and
innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid
cures upon patients supposed to have been far advanc
edin a confirmed Consumption, and who have exhibit
ed the appearances which usually indicate a fatal ter
mination of the disorder.
As the Fills require in ordinary cases no confine
ment, they may be administered with confidence and
safety to all ages anJ classes of people. Unexampled
success has hitherto attended their administration in a
great variety of case*; and the proprietor can refer to
a multitude, which testify to their efficacy in reviving
the emaciated victim irom the bed of disease, and re
storing him to the blessings of accustomed health and
activity. |
Price $1 for who/e boxes of 30 pills, and 50 cents for
half do. of 12 pills, with directions.
Debilitated Females!
Ill IB complaints peculiar to the female part of the
L community, have been long successfully treated
by the administration of the Aromatic IMIs, originally
prescribed and compounded by Dr Uelfe. 1 hey
cleanse the blood from those disorders of the female
constitution, for which the pilU are an effectual speci
fie; they restore a free circula ion, reform the irregular j
operations of the sanrufferous system, and rectify the j
disordered habits. The proprietor’s confidence in the
superior excellence of this equally innocent and pow j
erhsl preparation, is founded ou tlie most decisive tes J
timony from many restored patients. He cun assure
this Dortion of the public, that when
DR. RELFE'S AROMATIC PILLS FOR
FEMALES
are regularly taken, according to the directions, ac
companying them, they revive and establish the desir
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; nei;hti must they be taken by persons of hec
tic or consumptive habits. They may He used success

SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC j
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins7,) j
Prepared by C. HERS TONS, near Frederick
town, Maryland.
Hichxohu. Vs- July 15, 1830. j
Till E public will be pleased to understand that 1 was
. the original discoverer of Judkins’Ointment, an 1
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,!
permitted the Ointment to Year 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.
03* imposition having been practised upon the nub i
lie by a spurious article, bearing too name of “ Jud- t
kins* Ointment,” the proprietor avails himself of the i
«
authority granted to him in his letters paten'., now to
call the Ointment after his own name, llenoeforth it
will be known by the name of
SHEPHERD'S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT
MENT, (formerly Judkins'.)
When I first made ami prepared this Ointment, and
had, in • •veral instances, experienced its good effects,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what
cases to apnlv it, who were of opinion that the Jint
ment would be a valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hand*, some of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process—ne
vertheless, it might be progatcd in this adulterated si
tuation, as it might in come degree resemble the origt- j
nal—an l in this way its good dice's would be obhtera- I
led Under these u.o',-rations, I secured the origi- ■
nal and certain remedf for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long baffled the skib of me
dical science: . .
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore le^s and ulcers of long standing,
3d Schirrus or gkindular tum ors, particularly those
hardened tumors in women's breasts, which oftentimes )
terminate in ulceiated cancers;
4th Felons; or wiml some people know by thename
of catarrhs, of every description.
5th Itheumatic pains of the joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Fetters of all kin Is. In this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
out of water;
j 8th (Jhilhlainsor parts iffecied bv frost.
It is also one of the best r-medi. s for burns and
scalds. It cases the pain and draws the fire out in it
short time. 1
1 For infl tmed worn mi's breasts and glandular swcl
lings, it i-> superior to any medicine yet known to the
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications1, (a* it does not contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay tlicf patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
| This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
ling. Where it is impossible or imprudent to beat th.*
external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
; carious or rotten, it wiP stop the progressot the caries,
increase the quantity of discharge, remove the offen
sive smell, and ease Hit* pains
It cures the worst FeloJs and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty-eight hours

Doctor S. H. P. L.ee, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir—U is now upwards of twenty years that I 1
have used your New London Bilious Pills in my fami !
jy, and always found them an eflicient purgative in al- •
most every description of disease, and believe they sa« v
ved many a long do.otor’s hill by their early and timely *■
use. I never found tliAr accustomed certainty (ovary
in their operation and effects until a lew months past; 4
and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve- P
ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you ^
had made your furuine. and abandoned tiieir manutac- 4
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this Is
impression, I accidentally saw au advertisement of (
yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious "
imitations from your own manufacture, by having your ^
WHITTEN SIGNA TURE 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 1 had without this test, I be- tl
gan to suspect that “ al was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe
caries for your pills, with your written signature. 1
round many without thii test, but none with it, until I J
:ame to the Messrs Kesri*’, who assured me they had
hem direct from you. I procured a box, and on using S|
hem, fouoJ the same effects front them I had always a
:xpcrieticed; and am so much rejoiced on finding my S
«el fin ssposscion of a medicine I so highly prize, that
ihM 1 cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this

ijj* To avoid the imposition of counterfeit! and spu
rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has
only to examine the bill of directions c« vering each

HYGEIANISM.
THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our diseases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds ol the most skeptical:—
• Browx U.xivkrsitt, Dec. 25, 1833*
To Mr. Samuel Young. Agent fur the Hygeian Vege
table Univi.rsal 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 thiflk, I 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.
Mv complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and that my real condition maybe explicitly tinier
stood,! state, in connexion with the relation of the
cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
leinUer, 1812, I caught a severe cold, which settled on
my lungs; 1 was confined to my room about one week,
wilha fever, attended with considerable cough; my
cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining
mv health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of tiie night, having returned the evening be
f>re in usual health, l found myself bleeduig at the
lungs. I hud not, to my knowle Igc, 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
case, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. But
relapse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed ‘.o baffle all human skill,
and warn m- of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
months after the first attack, a “ tubercle” [-gtall ul
cer] broke in the longs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline tw o months longer, when
I obtained the Hygeian Medicines I had now- been
<iliable to sit up a whole d*• y, for four months and a
half. My feet were cold and lifeie«s, sleep unsound,
col I 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, !*c. f*c. Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted with the
Hygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi
cines, four pills si ado.e, an I increa-e I the dose dai
*v, one up to the number of twelve. In about ten
• lays, my appetite became good, and fo id produced
no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing,
and in about forty dits the symptoms of the disease
had nearly all disappeared.
I took the medicine sixty days regularly every night,
averaging about ten pills ut ifdose; tiie greatest num
ber taken at any one time was fifteen. Af'cr this, I
took about four dose* a week, until 1 had taken about
thirteen hundred pill*, when I found myself restored
to health. After I commenced the Hyg- ian, I took
no other medicine, fine year from the (ir*t attack, I
wus able to resume my studi s in college, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease Hitherto I have been convalescent; and it
my 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
tion. Vours, w.tli re.~p.ct,

Dear Sir—I wish to state that niv «dsfc*r, after severe
suffering, and employing a medical man three years,
was relieved by tiie use of the Universal Medicines
II-r complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her
side; indeed, to me lu-r own expression, her >s on
one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain
was a violent burning p in. almost intolerable; so sec
vere, that site could not ait up for upwards of three
ears. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers ^ If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few,
doses of No, 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pill* for
a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in
iheiruae, she is now restored to health; sod I have
no objection to this case being ini.le public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly,
