DR LEIDY’S MEDICATED SARSAPA
RILLA,
BEING a concentrated fluid extract of
t Sarsaparilla, combined with other vege
table extracts which renders it a medicine of
great utility in the cure ol ail diseases arising
from impurities of the blood—irorn indiscre
tions and imprudencies of vouth, and consti
tutional diseases formed or produced by the in
judicious use of mercurv, arsenic, bark or qui
nine. It is an invaluable remedy for all Rheu
malic Affections, General Debility. Ulcerous
Sores, White Swellings, Diseases of the Liver
and Skin, Ulcerated Sore Throat, Ulcers of
the Nose, Caries, or diseases of the Bones,
Scrofula, or King’s Evil, Erysipelas, or St.
Anthony’s fire, and 3l the unpleasant and
dangerous affections consequent on Syphilis,
Lues, Venereal, &c.. &c. As a general puri
fier of the blend at all times, and particularly
tQ the spring and fall, there can be do medi
cine more effectual.
As a medicine calculated to soothe and
nourish the system, after having been unde* j
medical treatmentfor any particular disease
there can be nothing more adapted, restoring
th* natural vigour of the system and allaying
the^ debilitated and nervous condition of the
system so common alter sickness.
As a medicine for its remedial virtues in all
the above mentioned diseases and affections, |
there is no preparation more, efficacious; and
s warranted to possess all the boasted virtues
contained in the PANACEAS, CATHOLl
CON3, EXTRACTS, &c. From a discovery
made by the Proprietors, there is a combina
ti%>o of cf^t^in vegetable extracts, with the
Sarsapwua, (that adds greatly to its virtues.)
found in this medicine, which justifies the
Proprietors in pronouncing it paramount to
other preparations.
This preparation will be found highly ser
viceable during the summer season, as a pre
ventive of those unpleasant and disagreeable |
sensations so common to many during warm
weather, namely Faintness, Giddiness, Op
pressive Fee.ing about the region of the Heart
and on the Breast, Dimness of Vision, &c &c.
It forms a delightful and wholesome beverage,
by adding a table spoonful to a glass ot iresh
spring or ice water, similar to the celebrated
Lisbon diet drink; and with a small quantity
of sugar or simple syrup, forms the Sarsapa
rilla mead, possessing, however, in addition,
medicinal virtues conducive to health, and
particularly adapted to invalids. For travel
Img persons it is a requisite of great import
tnce. , _ _ .

INTELLECTUAL Development and Per
JL sonalBeautv, considered in connexion with
I Dr. FELIX GOURAUD’S POUDRES SUB
TILES The sculptor, whose study is to imi
tate the exquisite workmanship of nature,
1 pourtrays in his model of the human form a
broad and elevated forehead. This develop
ment is not only consonant with, but some
times necessary to the possession of a high
order of mental faculty. If a fine forehead is
a mark of intellect, it is no less an essential
element of personal beauty, and it is of im
portance to those, and there are many such
possessed of this prominent feature though
obscured by the encroachments of a too luxu
rious growth of hair, to remove that portion
of an excrescence which tends, in their case,
only to deform. This can be done safely,
speedy, effectually, and if used in accord
ance with directions, without the least incon- j
venience, by Dr. Felix Gourauifs Depilatory J
Powders. The furz on the chin, when an
noying, or the short hair oa the back of a
lady’s neck, when too apparent—the hair of a
mole, orjthe beard, when high upon the cheek,
may all be removed and eventually the roots
destroyed bv the use of this preparation.

HANCE’S COMPOUND SYRUP OF HORE
HOUND.
FOR the Cure or Coughs, Colds, Consump
tion, Bronchitis, Asthma, Spitting of
Blood, Pain and Oppression of the Breast, and
all Diseases arising from a Disordered Condi
tion of the Lungs.
Perhaps there is no Medical Observation
better established, and none more generally
confirmed by the experience of the best phy
sicians of all ages in all countries, than the
Fact, that many of the most difficult and in
curable Consumptions originate in neglected
colds. In a climate so variable as ours,
where the changes of weather are frequently
sudden and unexpected, it requires more care
and attention to guard against this dangerous
enemy to human life, than most persons are
able and willing to besto w. The bills of mor
tality exhibit the alarming and most melan
choly fact, that the number of deaths by this
disease are as five to one. Inasmnch then as
this fatal disease is increasing and spreading
so widely and fearfully,and bidding defiance
often to the combined skill of the most emi
nent physicians, it is a gratification to the pro
prietor to he enabled to offer to all of con
sumptive habits, or those afflicted with dis
tressing pains in the side or breast, or any
affection of the breast or lung*, a reasonable
and almost certaian prospect of relief.
Tht virtues of Horehound for arresting the
progress of cough and consumption, have
been universally known since the discovery
of America. The Indians so celebrated for
curing all diseases with herbs, used very ex
tensively the Horehound, in all casesofCol.ls,
Coughs, &c. It is to them that we are indebt
ed for the knowledge we have of this valua
ble remedy, and did we use it as freely and
promptly as those uncivilized beings, the list
of deaths from consumption, would be com
paratively small, to what it is is at present.
“An Indian never was known to die with
Consumption,” because Ihev always take
such remedies as arrest the disease in time;
consequently being free from diseases oi the
lungs, they are the heartiest race of persons
in the world.
The Compound Syrup of Horehound is a
medicine suitable to persons of nil ages and
sexes; and if taken on the appearance of the
first symptoms which are a cou^fi or pain in
the breast. will in nine cases out of ten, allord
relief and effect a speedy cure.

Du D. Jayne:—Dear Sik—Learning
through the medium of the newspapers the
cfFraey of your HAIR TONIC, and being ac
quainted with some of those recommending it,
town: Rev. O. CL Park, Rev. Dr. Babcock,
at:d Rev. L. Fletcher, and when in New York
fast spring, I purchased two bottles, with a
view to make the experiment. I have been
quite bald for a bout four years, and obliged.to
wear a wig. Indeed, it is constitutional with
my family to he bald mearly life. ! confess,
l hao nut little confidence in the attempt, ha
ving been so bald, mm near 1C veai* of age,
and that partoi my head destitute of hair
exceedingly smooth. I however, commenced
agreeably to your directions, ami used one
bottle faithfuiiv, and with very little etieci
Put belure l had tued the second bottle, a
very fine fuzzy hair became perceptible, which
continued to grow, and now having med the
third bottle.I have bad three cuttingsperfor
med,and the prospecth very flattering, that
[sha I again be blessed with a fine head of
hair ornamental and useful. I am extremely
gratified with the prospect, and from observa
tions made, many of my friends, and acquain
tances, who have herertofore regarded 'the
preparation ns deceptive, and only a catch
penny concern, are now we . satisfied that it
is“Tr„Th—No Fiction.’' J. W. LAWYER,

TO THE BALD HEADED AND OTHERS
DOES any know a neighbor or a friend who
has been Bald, and whose head is now
covered with fine hair? One whose coal col
lar was covered with dandruff, though brush
ed every hour—which lias now vanished en
tirely? Or one whose hairs at early age were
turning grey, who now has not a grey hair?—
Children whose heads were covered with
scruf,—whose hair would not grow, that are
now growing the fullest crops of hair? Some
cases must lie known to most persons. Ask
them the cause, and you will he toid, these
things have been done by the use of the BALM
OF COLUMBIA. Of 20 years growth is this
article, its demand increasing annually some
hundred ter cent.—though when discovered
not opposeu by any thing for the same purpose
now assailed by almost numberless mushroom
trash preparations that will ruin the hair if us
ed toanv extent. Can more than these facts
he wanted—reler to the recommendations by
a list of names of respectability, unequalled
by any other article. Look to these things—
buy this article. Stay and preserve your hair
by its use,or if bald restore it. Ladies, at
tend to this—hundreds in fashionable life are
using it as the toilet. Long hair is v*ry a pi to
fallout. Ladies, use the Balm of Columbia
in time to save yourselves 11. e disgrace of bald
ness by neglect of your persons.
It. is your duty, as mora.ists to preset ve the
beauties of nature, with winch a bountiful
Creator has endowed you—use the Balm, for it
will do it.
CAUTION TO BE REMEMBERED.
—Several most flagrant attempts have been
made to counterfeit the true Balm of Colum
bia. Some of the impostors have gone so far
as to counterfeit the splendid wrappers, and
the Falls of Niagara, and every external mark
except the name of Comstock, which they
dare not forge.
To avoid impositions therefore, always look
for the name of Comstock & Co. or L. S. Corn
stock, and never buy the article unless it has
that name upon ;t.
