Perhaps there is no Medical Observation better established, and none more generally confirmed by the experience of th£ best phy sicians of all ages in all countries, than the Fact, that many οΓ the most difhcolt and in surable Consumptions ori^innie 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 zmrd against this dangerous enemy to human life, than most persons are able and wiltinff to besto v. 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· 'nasmnch then as ibis fatal disease is increasing and spreading so widely and fearfully,and bidding defiance often to the combined skit! of the most emi· nent physicians, it is a gratification !o the pro· prietor to be enabled to offer to all of con· dumptive 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 certaiaη prospect of relief. The virtues of Horehound for arresting tne progress of cough and consumption, have been universally known since the discovery οΓ America. The Indians so celebrated for curing all diseases with herbs, used verv ex tensive!? the Horehound, in all casesofCoMs, Coughs, &c. It is to them that we are indebt ed for the knowledge we have of this valua ble remedy, and did we me it as freely and promptly as th^se uncivilized beings, the list of deaths from consumption, would be com paratively small, to what it is is at present· "Ad Indian never was known to die with Consumption," because the ν always take such remedies as arrest ?he disease in time; consequently being free from diseases of the lungs, thev are the heartiest race of persons in the world. The Compound Syrup of Horehound is a medicine suitable to persons of all ages and sexes; and>if taken on the appearance of the first symptom* which are a cough or pain in the èreot#.'will in nine cases »>ut of ten, afford relief and effect speedy cure.

One whose coat col lar was covered with dandruff, though brush ed every hour—which has now vanished en tirely? Or one whose harrs 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 be known to most persons. Ask 1 them the cause, and you will be told, 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 ner cent.—though when discovered not opposed by any thing for the same purpose now assailed by almost ηumberiessmushroom trash preparations that will ruin the hair if us ed to any extent. Can more than these faefs be wanted—reler to the recommendations by α liât of iiame3 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 very a pt to fallout. Ladies, use the Balm of Columbia in time to save yourselves the disgrace of bald ness by neglect of your persons. It is your duty, as mora.ists to preserve the beauties of nature, with which a bountiful Creator has endowed you—use the Balm, for it will do it.

Liver Complaints, Asthma,Bronchitis,Pains or weakness of the breast, Chronic coughs, difliculty of breathing, spitting of blood, and all affections of the Pulmonary Or gans· NO CltVACKERY ! ! NO DECEPTION!!! In setting foilh the virtues of this tru'y val- , liable medicine, we have no desire to deceive the atHicted, nor do we wish to eulogize it more than it justly deserves, yet when we look around us and see the vast amouut of suffering occasioned by the various diseases in which it has proved so pre-eminently suc cessful, we feel that we cannot say too mueh in its favor. Various remedies, it is true, have been offered and pulled into notice from time to time, for diseases of the Lunes, and some have undoubtedly been found very useful, but of all that lias been yet discovered, it is uni versally acknowleiged that none has ever proved as successtul as this. The medicinal virtues of the Wild Cherry Bark have Ion? been known and highly exiolled in many dis eases, by some of the most hminent physici ans, but in this preparation its powers are •rree tly increased, and its superiority at once made manifest. Besides possessing ail the virtues of the Wild Cherry Bark, in a highly concentrated form, it also contains an ex tract of Tar, both of these being prepared by a new chemical process, by which their me dicinal properties are scientifically combined and associated together, with such other me dicinal substances, as to render it far superior to any form in which it lias ever been em ployed. — ' " ' ι·.. · · .ι iL?_ ι ; ι ne universal ceieomy wmun una mcui· cine is rapidly gaining in every section of the country, and the many surprising cures it has effected,has indeed established itseificacv be· yond all doubt, and clearly proves that "Con sumption" may and can be cured, even in some of its most distressing forms. We are not, however.skeptical enough to suppose that this or any other remedy is capable of curing every case, and all stages of the disease: on the contrary, we are well aware that there are many cases beyond the power of medicine to cure. Yet while there is life there is hope, and from practical experience in the eifîcacy ol this medicine, we can safely say there are few cases in which it will not alleviate thesnf- I fering, and may prolong life for years. Such indeed are the astonishing healing and resto rative properiiesoi this Balsam, that even in the worst forms of "Consumption,when the patient ha* suffered with the most distressing cough, violent pains in the chest, difficulty oi breathing, night sweats, b'eedingof the lungs, &.O., ami when the most esteemed remedies oi our Pharmncopias had ia ι led to afford any re bel, nurî after numerous other remedies had been n-ed for many months in vain, this in valuable remedy has been productive of the most astonishing relief. In the early stages of the disease, proceeding from neglected colds, termed Catarrhal Consumption, it has been used with undeviating success, and in manv instacnes when this disease seemed to have marked its;victim for an early grave, the use of this medicine lias arrested every symtoni, and restored the lungs to a state of perfect health. In that form of Consumption, so prevalent amongst delicate young females, commonly termed debility, or ''going into a decline,a compiaint with which thousands are lingering, it h .s a iso been used with surprising success, and not only possesses the power oi checking the progress of this alarming disease, but at the same time strengthens and invigorates the whole system more effectually than any reme dy we have ever possessed. Asa remedy in Liver complaints, Asthma, Bronchitis, &c.. especially when attended with a cough, hoarseness, soreness of the throat, or oppressed breathing, it has been used with equal success, and cured many cases of years standing, after every thing else had failed.— η common coughs and colds, croup in children which prevail so extensively throughout tne winter, it will be found much more effectual than any remedy in use, and when colds set tle upon the lungs,causirgan inflammation with pains in the breast, difficulty or shortness of breathing, &c., the use of this Balsam will suppress such symptoms immediately, and at the sam e prevent the lungs Irom becorn ■ » — — ■» »·« « >.· λι»ρ I κ il Pa/I lll'il L ΛΓΙ ui^vuvjwu· Such in fact is the nature and simplicity of this medicine, so powerful in action, yet so mild, safe ami pleasant in ils operation, that it might he justly termed "Nature's own pre scription," and although hut two years have elapsed since it was first made public, we can proudly sav it has acquired a celebrity unpre cedented h ν any medicine in use, and is evi dently destined to become the most popular and valuable medicine ever discovered.— DC/- For parrculars see Dr. Wistar's "Family Medical Guide," a treatise on Pulmonary dis eases, which may he had gratis ol any of the Agents.
