val preparations, and are continually gaining
upon public confidence.
The Botanical Drops have been successfully
administered for many years, as a thorough re
medy for that well known and prevalent cits*
of inveterate diseases which originate from a
vitiated habit of body,or an hereditary predis
position in the patient, and generally appear
under the various and distressing shapes of
Scrofula, Sait Rheum, Leprosy, St. Antho

Scurvy, Foal and Obstinate Ulcers, Sore Legs
and Eyes. Scald Head, and VenereaI I amt.
In the last mentioned condition of the sys
tem, the Botanical Drops will be found to era
dicate the lurking poison, where mercury has
totally failed, and thus prevent the patient
from entailing the seeds of an hereditary dis
ease on his offspring.
Dr. Kelfe's Botanical Drops are successfully
used in cases of violent eruptions atter the
measles—red blotches—pimples on the face
festering eruf tionson thesk.n—and other dis
eases ot the external surface? and are one ot
the best Spring and Autumnal physics known,

Consumption!
Asthma! *V Catarrh!
IN that long train ot diseases which seem to
grow witu the growth of civilized society,
Consumption takes the lead in its relentless
inroads upon human life; yet this dreadful dis
order is eos.ly overcome in its earlier stages.
It is only when neglected that it arrives at the
terrific maturity which so often baffles the sa
* gacity of professional science. An obstinate
cough is the customary forerunner of the pui
.moiury consumption Improper neglect in the
♦timely administration of simple and salutary
medicines, is sme to be reproved by a dread
ful succession of consumptive symptoms—op
pressiou of the breast; greenish and bloody
spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shri
veiled extremities, and general emaciation of
the whole body; prostration of strength; flush
ed cheeks; swollen feet and legs; and at last,
in the full possession of tne mental faculties,
and while hope still whispers her flattering
tale—cold extremities, and a premature death.
For the various stage* of this complaint, one
of the most approved remedies ever yet dis
covered is
DR. RELFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS.
This exceedingly powerful, and vet equally
safe and innocent preparation,has effected tho
rough and rapid cures upon patients supposed
to have been far advanced in a confirmed Con
sumption, and who have exhibited the appear
ancea which usually inaicate a iatai termination
of the disorder.
As the Pills require in ordinary cases no
confinement, thev may be administered with
confidence and safety to all ages and classes of
people. Unexampled success has hitherto at
tended their administration in a great variety
of cases; and the proprietor can refer to a mu!
titude, which testify to their efficacy in reviv
ing the emaciated victim from the bed of dis
ease, and restoring him to the blessings of ac
customed health and activity.

known to the inhabitants ol this city, especial

A Clill
Sim—I do not hesitate to give my most un
qualified approbation in favor of your valuable
Albion Com Piaster. By the use of less than
a box, Mrs. Stoweli has been cured of a corn
on each foot, which had been exceedingly
troublesome and painful for year*, and 1 think
it but juatice to your invaluable preparation
to add, (for the encouragement of those who,
owing to repeated disappointments in the va
rious remedies resorted to, bare finally des
paired of a cure,} that your Plaster cur»d her

CERTIFICATES.
I hereby certify that ! was cured of a violent
cough and pain in the breast by using Doctoi
Ja\ lie's Expectorant Medicine. My wife also
was afflicted with a had cough and pam in the
breast, attended with so much difficulty of
breathing as to prevent her from getting any
sleep fora number of nights in succession; bu«
by taking two doses of this medicine she was
enabled to sleep quietly litre ugh the l ight
and in a few days by continuing its use she
was perfectly restored. Jacob Hiikjkwai.
Hancock's bridge,N. J Si pt. 24, 1886.
Last spring my wife was confined to her bed
by a distressing cough and pain in her breast
and side—Her cough harassed her day and
night and her difficulty of breathing was sc
great that she got very little sleep for man;
days and nights together—None of the medi
cines she took appeared to be of any service
to her; when Dr Jayne kindly sent her a bot
tle of Indian Expectorant w bich soon and com
pletely restored her to health—She firmly be
lieves it the best medicine ever discovered.

will please forward on a winter supply as soon

have u.°ed it—The season is fast approaching
when such a medicine will be much needed
and as it is well supported by good certificates

seems to be to the price; but we have not had

THE DIFFERENCE.
IT cannot be denied that whilst many medi
cines which are recommended to the pub
lie, have not even the negative merit of harm
lessness, there arc others which it would be
gr*at injustice indeed and suicidal prejudice
to iuvolve, untried, iii a common condemna
tion. And when a medicine comes endorsed
with all the names that have adorned the an
nals of the medical profession, and warranted
by the seal and signature of long &'•*> uniform
success its proprietor makes no unreasonable
demand upon public confidence, when he
claims for i* a superior consideration.
The Camomile preparation of I)r. W. Evans
is undeniably entitled to this enviable distinc
tion; for whilst no medical authority ill exis
tence condemns it, every medical work which
alludes to it. and every medical practitioner
that is acquainted with it, freely acknowledges
its pre-eminent virtues; and that the latter
should do so in opposition to their personal in
terest must be attributed either to their candor
and love of truth, or to their unwillingness to
fly in the face of all observation, and the testi
mony of thousands.
Dr. W. Evans does not pretend that ins
Camomile Tonic Hills cure all diseases. He
frankly and conscientiously admits that they
will not He lays no claim to the discttery
of the “Philosopher's Stone;" and wishes no
body to believe that he sells the ‘ Elixir if
Life;" but he does say. and does beiieve, and
can prove, that in debility and impaired con
stitutions; in nervous diseases ot all kinds; in
weakness of the digestive organs; in incipient
consumptions, whether of the lungs or the
liver; in the dreadful debility occasioned by
the use of purgatives; iu palsy; rheumatism;
(more especially ) in the sickness incident to
mothers and to females of relaxed nerves; in
every case of .’elirium tremens, or that disease
which is brought on by intemperance; in the
wretched horrors of mind and body, whicn ac
crue from occasional in< bret) ; in loss of appe
tite; languor; melancholy; pains in the head;
libn.s or soles, in corrupt; sallow and uncomely
comcplexion, caused by the hao state of the
fluids —in ail these cases, and in some others
mentioned in the hills of directions given with
his medicines, he does say, that the Lamonm.e
Tonic Pills, interchanged occasionally with his
aperient family Pills, (the best known) which
are Sold with them, w ill effect immediate relief;
and if used but for a fair period of trial, a perfect
cure. 'This much is placed beyond a doubt
by daily testimonies w hich would be given on
oath, and for '.his much Dr W. Evans can
conscientiously request confidence, lie t here
fore need only add that his Lamnmile I onic
Pills, together with his excellent Family Ape
rient Piqs, can be obtained, wholesale or re
tail, at No 7 Division st , near Chatham square,
New Yoik, and of his authorised Agents in
