through the medium of the newspapers the

quainted with some of those recommending it,
to wit: Rev. C.C. Park, Rev. Dr. Babcock,
ai:d Rev. L. Fletcher, and when in New York
.•astspring, 1 purchased two bottles, with a
yiew to make the experiment. I have been
quite bald for about four years, and obligedjto
wear a wig. Indeed, it is constitutional with
my lannly to be bald in early life. I confess,
l h ui nut little confidence m the attempt, ha
ving been so bald, ana near 46 years of age,
and that partol my head destitute of hair
ex v*edingly smooth. 1 however, commenced
agreeably to your directions, ana used one
bottle fait id uliy, and with very Iitt.e effect
but before i bad used the second bottle, a
very hue f uzzy hair became perceptible, which
continued to grow, and now having used the
third bottle,! have had three cuttings perfor
rced,and the prospect is very flattering, that
I sha i again lie blessed with a fine head of
hair ornamental ana useful. I am extremely
gratified with the prospect, and from obserya

not opposed by any thing for the same purpose
now assailed by almost numberless mushroom
trash preparations that will ruin the hair if us

bnv this article. Stay and preserve your hair j
bv its use, or if bald restore it. Ladies, at-j
tend to this—hundreds in fashionable lite are i
using it as the toilet. Long hair is very apt to
fill out, Ladies, use the Balm of Columbia
in time to save yourselves the disgrace of bald
ness by neglect of your persons.
It is your fluty, 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.

ot Medicine, for Coughs, Colds. Influen
za, Consumption, Asthma, spitting of
Blood, Hoarseness, Difficulty of Breath
ing, Hooping Cough, Pain, and Weak
ness of the Breast, and all diseases of the
Pulmonary organs.
This medicine is highly and justly re
commended, by numerous arm respecta.
ble individuals, who have found relief
from its use. Many who have been la
boring under protracted Coughs and
pains in the breast and have been sup
posed by themselves and their friends far
advanced in consumption, have been
happily restored to ported health by the
use of 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
tions, and taking a teaspoonful occa
sionally. Their cough wiil.be scarcely
felt and they will be enabled to expecto
rate with the greatest facility, and the ir
ritating matter v. ill thereby soon be re
moved and a permanent cure effected.—
Let the afflicted try it.

I hereby ccr'ify that I was cured of a
violent cough ami pain in the breast by j
using Doctor Jayne's Expectorant Med
icine. My wife also was afflicted with a
bad cough and pain in the breast, atten- i
ded with so much difficulty of breathing (
as to prevent her from getting any sleep
for a number of nights in succession, but
by taking two doses of this medicine she
was enabled to sleep quietly through the
night and in a lew days by continuing
its use she was perfectly restored.

what proofs 1 meet with of the efficacy of
your medicine. I can ouU!y s..y that 1
never prescribed a medicine for Bowel
Complaints that has given me so m ch
satisfaction, and my patients so speedy
and perfect relief as this. Whenever in
troduced into a family, it becomes a
standing remedy for those ailments, and
is called for again and again, which 1
think a pretty good proof of its efficacy
and usefulness; in the Summer Com
plaint of children it has frequently ap
peared to snatch the little victims as it
were from the grave. It saved the life
of my child, and ot such and such a child
I have repeatedly heard said: In dysen
teric affections of adults. I have time and
again seen it act like a charm, and give
permanent relief in a few hours—I may
say in a few minutes. In line it is a val
uable medicine, and no family should be

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 truly val
uable medicine, we have no 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 amount of
suffering occasioned by the various diseases
in which it has proved so pre-eminently sun- ,
cessful, we feel that we cannot say ton much
in its favor. Various remedies, it istme, 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 j
I of all that has been yet discovered, it is uni
versally acknowledged that none has ever |
proved as success! nl as this. The medicinal'
virtues of the Wild Cherry Hark have long
been known and highly extolled in manv riis- .
eases, by some of the most hrament physici-I
and, but in this preparation it^ powers are 1
!greatly increased, arid ns superiority at once
made manifest. Besides possessing all the
virtues of the Wild Cherry Bark, m a highly
concentrated form, it also contains an ex
tmrf of Tar. both of these hem.* ore a a red hv
a new chemical process, hy which their me j
dicinal properties are scientifically combined
and associated together, with such ntherme*
dicinal substances, as to render it far superior
to any form in which it has ev-r been em
The universal celebrity which thus medi
cine is rapidly gaining in every section of the |
country, and the many surprising cures it has
effected,has indeed established it eflicacv he
jyond all doubt, and clearly prove* that “Con
sumption” may and can be cured, even if]
some ol its most distressing forms We are
not, however,skeptical enough to suppose that
t this or any other remedy is capah e of curing
every case, and all stages of the disease: on
t he contrary, we a re well aware tint there
are many cases bevond the power of medicine
| to cure. Yet while there is life there is hope,
and from practical experience in the efficacy
of this medicine, we can safelv say there are
few cases in which it will not alleviate the^nf
fering, and may prolong life for year*, ^uch
indeed are the astonishing healing and resto
rative properties of this Balsam, that even in
the worst forms of “Consumption,’’ when the |
patient has suffered with the most distressing 1
cough, violent pains in. the chest, «:ifTfeu!tv o! j
breathing, night sweats, breeding of the lung*, '
Sic., and when the most esteemed remedies *f ;
our Pha.rmacopias had failed to afford any re
lief, and after numerous oilier remedies hud i
been used for many months in vain, tin* in
valuable remedy has been productive of the
most astonishing relief. In the early stages o'
the disease, proceeding from neglected colds,
termed Catarrhal Consumption, it has been
used with undeviating success, and in many
instacnes when lids disease seemed to have
marked its victim for an eariv grave, the use
of this medicine has arrested ever-v svmfom,
■ and restored the lungs to a state of perfect
| health.
In that form of Consumption, so prevalent
amongst delicate young female*, commonly
termed debility, or “going into a decline,’* a
complaint with winch thousands are lingering,
it has also been used with surprising success,
and not onlv possesses the power of check ii:g
the progress of this ala ming disease, ‘mi! at 'he
same time stQtengthens and invigorates the
whole sys’em more effectually than a?:v reme
dy we have ever possessed.
As a remedy in Liver complaints, \Mhma,
Bronchitis. &c..especially when attended with
a cough, hoarseness, soreness of the (hr >at. or
oppressed breathing, it has been used with
equal success, and cured many cases ot years j
standing, after every thing else had laiied.— j
n common coughs and colds croup in end bon j
which prevail so extensively throng ut tnp i
winter, it will he found much more eHerual j
than any remedy in use, and when col i' set- !
de upon the lung$,cnusmgan inflamma "ori wi’h
pains in the hreast, difficulty or sh.vu m* of !
breathing, &c., the use ol this Rals*m will!
suppress the symptoms immediately, and at j
the same time prevent the lungs from becom
ing more seriously diseased.
Such in fact is the nature and simplicity of
ibis medicine, so powerful in action, vet so
mild, safe and pleasant in its opera lion, that if j
tnight he justly termed “Nature’s own pre- i
scription,” and although but two years have i
elapsed since it wrs first made public, u e can j
proudly *ay it has acquired a celebrity unpre- 1
cedented by any medicine in use, and is evi
dently destined to become die most popular
and valuable medicine ever discovered.—
