I DAVID /ΛΥΚΕ. I Philadelphia Jurf^-Ty CONSUMPTION OF THE LUNGS ! 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 gans. NO aUACKERY!! NO DECEPTION!!! In setting forth the virtues of this truly val uable medicine, we have no desire to deceive the afflicted, nor do we wish to eulogize if more than it justly deserves, yet when we look around us and see the vast amount of suffering occasioned hy ihe various diseases in which it has proved so pre-eminently suc· i cessful, we feel that we cannot say too inueb in its favor. Va non»? remedies it is true, have been offered and puffed into notice from time to time, for diseases of the Lungs, and some have undoubtedly been found very useful, hut of all that has been yet discovered, it is uni versally acknowledged rhal none has ever proved as successtul as this. The medicinal virtues ol the Wild Cherry Hark have loop been known and highly extolled in ma η ν dis eases, hy some of the most hminent physici ans, but in this preparation its powers are greatly increased, and us superiority at once made manifest. Resides possessing all the virtues of the Wild Cherry Eîaik, in a highly concentrated form, it also contains an ex tract ot 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 il has ever been em ployed. The universal celebrity which this medi cine Î9 rapidly gaining in every section of the country, and the many surprising cures it has effected,has indeed established its efficacy be· ] yond all doubt, and clearly proves that "Con sumption" may and can he cured, even in some ol its most distressing forms. We are not, however.skeptical enough to suppose that ihis 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 hevond the power of medicine to cure. Yet while there is life there is hope, and from practical experience in the elficacy ol this medicine, we can s;»felv say there are I few cases in which it will not alleviate the suf fering, and may prolong file for years. Such indeed are the astonishing healing and resto rative properties of this Balsam, that even io the worst form* of "Consumption,when the patient has suffered with t^e most distressing cough, violent pains in the chest, difficulty ol breathing, night sweats, breeding οΓ ι he lungs, &c., and wh'-n the most esteemed remedies ol our Pharmaco; ias had faile<f to afford any re lie!, and after numerous other remedies had been u«ed fur many months in vain, this in valuable remedy has been productive of the I 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 many instacnes when this disease seemed to have marked its victim for an earlv grave, the use of this medicine has arrested every symtom, and restored the lungs to a state of perfect health. In that form of Consumption, so prevalent amongst delicate young fema'e-i, commonly termed debility, or 4tgoing into a decline,·» a complaint with which thousands are lingering, it has also been used with surprising success, and not only possesses the power o! checking the progress of this alarming disease, but at the same time st^ngthens and invigorates the whole system more effectually than any reme dy we have ever possessed. ' · - — · ··- » . · as a remeuv hi L,iver cumpiainia, λμιιιιιη, Bronchitis, &c.. especially when attended with I a cough, hoarseness, çoreness 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 the winter, it will he found much mote effectual than any remedy in use, and when colds set tle upon the luugs.causingan inflammation with pains in the breast, difficulty or shortness ol breathing, &c., the use o| this Ralsam will suppress the symptoms immediately, end at the same lime prevent the lungs from 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 hut two vears have elapsed since it wrs first made public, we can I proudly «ay »t has 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.— For particulars see Dr. Wistar's "Family Medical Guide," a treatise on Pulmonary dis ease», which may be had gratis ol any of ilie Agents. CAUTION.—As several attempts ha ve been made to prejudice the public against thrs o>ed· icine, by an obscure illiterate quack, calling himself Dr. Swayne, (the proprietor of a nos trum called Swayne's Svrupof Wild Cherry,) who has asserted that Dr. Wistar is not the inventor, and otherwise resorted to the most palpable and malicious falsehoods, it is neces sary to put the public on their guard, and re quest purchasers fn he very particular to ask for "DR. WIS PAR'S BALSAM OK WILD CHERRY," and observe these words blown in the glass of each bot.ile, and the signature of Henry Wistar, M. D., ·»n the label, without 1 which none is genuine.
