Perhaps there w no Medical Observation

Fact, that many of tb# 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 v. The bills of mor
tality exhibit the alarming and most melan
choly fact, that the number of deaths by this
<fi*ea*e are as fire to one. Inasmnrh then as
this fatal disease is increasing and spreading
•o widely and fearful!?,and bidding defiance
often to the combined skill of the most emi
nent physicians, if is a gratification to the pro
prietor to he enabled to offer to all of con*
^umptive habits, or those afflicted with dis
tressing pains in the side or breaU, or any
affection of the breast or lung?, a reasonable
and almost certaian prospect of relief.
The rirtuesof Horehound for arresting tne
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 verv ex
tensiveîr the Horehound, in all casesofCohls,
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

of deaths from consumption, would be com
paratively small, to what it is is at present, j

be wanted—reter to the recommendations by
a list of name3 of respectability, unequalled
by any other article. Look to these things—

by its use, or if bald restore it. Ladies, at

This medicine is highly and justly re

from its use. Many who have been la
boring under protracted Coughs and
pains in the breast and have been sup

advanced in consumption, have been
happily restored to perfect health by the
use ot this valuable Expectorant.
Persons laboring under chronic or
consumptive coughs, will find great ad
vantage from carrying a small quantity
of the Indian Expectorant with them,
while attending to their various avoca

felt and they will be enabled to expecto

is called for again and again, which 1

I have repeatedly heard said: In dysen

Liver Complaints, Asthma,Bronchitis, Pains
or weakness of the breast, Chronic coughs,
difficulty of breathing, spitting of blood,
and all affections of the Pulmonary Or
In setting forth the virtues of this tru'y val- ,
nable medicine, we h3ve nr. desire to deceive
the afflicted, 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 tnueb
in its favor. Various remedies, it is tnie, have
been offered and pufledinto notice from time
to time, for diseases of the Lungs, and some
have undoubted!? been found very useful, but
of all that has been yet discovered, it is uni
versally acknowleiged that none has ever
proved as successful as this. The medicinal
virtues of the Wild Cherry Bark have long
been known and highly exiolled in many dis
eases, by some of the most hminent physici
ans, but in this preparation its powers are
greatly increased, and its superiority at once
made manifest. Besides possessing all 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 nas ever been em
The universal celehritv which this medi
^ _
cine is rapidly saining in every section m mr
country, and the many surprising cures it has
effected,has indeed established its efficacy be
yond all doubt, and clearly proves ihat "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 i9 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 efficacy
ol this medicine, we can safelv say there are
few cases in which it will not alleviate thesuf
fering, and may prolong life for years. Such
indeed are the astonishing healing and resto
rative properties of this Balsam, that even in
the worst foröis of "Consumption,when the
patient has suffered with the most distressing
cough, violent pains in the chest, difficulty of
breathing, night sweats, Meedingof the lungs,
&c., and when the most esteemed remedies of
our Pharmacopias had failed to afford any re
lief, and after numerous other remedies had
been used 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 (indeviating success, and in many
instacnes when this disease seemed to have
marked itslvictim for an early grave, the use
of this medicine has arrested every symtom,
and restored the lungs to a state of perfect
In that form of Consumption, so prevalent
amongst delicate young females, commonly
termed debility, or ''going into a decline/' a
complaint with which thousand? are lingering,
it has also 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, Slc .especially when attended with
« cough, hoarseness, soreness of the throat, or
oppressed breathing, it has been used with
equal success, a tid cured many cases of years
standing, after every thing else had failed.—
n common coughs and colds, croup in children
which prevail so extensively throughout the
winter, it will be found much tnoie effectual
than any remedy in use, and when colds set
tle upon the lungs,causingan inflammation with
pains in the breast, difficulty or shortness of
breathing, &c., the use ot this Balsam will
suppress the symptoms immediately, and at
the same time prevent the lungs Irom becom
ing more seriously diseased.
Such in Fact is the nature and simplicity of
this medicine, so powerful in action, yet so
mild, safe and pleasant in its operation, that it
might be justly termed "Nature's own pre
scription," and although but two years have
elapsed since it wrs first made public, we can
proudly say it hau acquired a celebrity unpre
cedented by any medicine in use, and is evi
dently destined to become the most popular
and valuable medicine ever discovered.—
