CAZENOVE & Co. i HYGEIAN PILLS. ILLIAM STABLER, Chemist and Druggist, Alexandria, general a i gent for the sale of Dr. Ralph’s (Improved Hygeian Pills, respectfully states that he is enabled to supply this Medicine to the public and his mercantile connection, up on the same terms that the General Of | bee at New York supplies them,—a li < beral discount being made to retail mer ; chants. For a description of.the qualities , of these pills, he refers to the following ; advertisement of Doctor Ralph, viz:— i “The very general demand for Dr. Ralph’s Hygeian Pills, can only be ac counted for by reason of the unexam pled benefit and cures which thousands have experienced from their use. More’ over, they are founded on the wisdom and experience of the British College of l hysiciuns and burgeons, of London: and are recommended by the writings and practice of Sir Astiey Cooper, Mr. Abernethy, and Dr. Babington;as well as by the greater part of the more eminent practitioners of England and the Conti nent. The limits of an advertisement will not allow of entering upon an explanation ofthe principle on which this medicine is suited to so many different complaints.— It must sulfice to mention, that each package ofthe pills contains three boxes, two ol which are gently opening, with a. strengthening quality combined, adapted to the most feeble constitutions; w hile the other is purgative, but more or less so ac cording to the dose. Thus, by varying these /’ills, and altering the doses agree able to the directions given, it is aston ishing to witness the number of diseases which are cured or much alleviated by them; while there is no disease w’hatever which can possibly be injured by their use. They contain no mercury, and may be taken without the inconveniences or caution which other medicines general ly require. The particular diseases in which their efficacy has been proved and tested,in many thousand individual cases, arc the following: uyspcpsia, and the whole ofthosd nu merous maladies which arise from habitu al constipation of the bowels; Apoplexy, and all affections of the head; Gout; Rheumatism; Scrofula, with every spe cies of Salt Rheum and Disorder of the Skin; threatening Consumptive Cough; Liver Diseases, w hether the effect of in temperance or hot climate; Fever and Ague; Common Fever, &c.; Inflamma tions; Cholera Morbus, &c.; Jaundice; Dropsy; Piles; Gravel; Gleet, and certain other complaints of the Urinary and Ge nital organs, &c. &c. This medicine is also eminently useful in the whole class ofdisorders peculiar to the female constitution, especially in Ner vous and Hysterical disorders, Epileptic Fits,St. V itus's Dance &c. <fcc.j Sick Head Ache, certain obstructions, sexual weak ness, vVc. In smaller doses, it may be relied on as the best and safest medi cine in pregnancy, and for the common disorders of children. The directions given with those Pills arc remarkably plain and particular—the proper dose and management of them be ing carefully mentioned under the head each disorder separately. Jos. Ralph, M. I)., Graduate of the University of Edin burgh; Member of the Royal College of Surgeons London; Lecturer on Midwifery and the Diseases of Wo men and Children, & c. and author of the ‘ Domestic Guide to Medicine.** N. 13. Dr. Ralph's Domestic Guide is a little volume designed for the use of every family, particularly those resid j ing in tlie country. It is written in tlie ! plainest manner, and is intended to cna i ble individuals, both male and female, to j undertake the management of their own complaints with safety and success.— The price is very low, being only f>0 cents, though neatly bound in boards, &c.
