In setfing forth the virtues of this trtdy val
uable medicine, we have no desire to deceive
tbe afflicted, nor do we wish to eulogize it
more than it justly deserves, yet when we
i look around us and see the vast amouut o!
| suffering occasioned by the various diseases
in which it has proved so pre-eminently suc
cessful, we feel that we cannot say too mueh
iniis favor. Various 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, but
of all that has been yet discovered, it is uni
versally acknowledged that none has ever
proved as successlu! as this. The medicinal
virtues o! the Wild Cherry Bark have long
been known and highly extolled in many dis
eases, bv some of the most hminent physici
ans, but in this preparation its powers are
greatly increased, aud its superiority at once
made manifest. Besides possessing all the
virtues of the Wild Cherry Batk, in a highly
concentrated torm, 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 otherme
diciaal substances, as to render it far supeiior
| to any form in which it nas ever been em
ployed. . . ..
The universal celebrity which tins medi
cine is rapidiv earning in every section of the
country, and the many surprising cures it has
effected,has indeed established its efficacy be
yond all douht, and clearly proves that “Con
cmrmnnn” mav and can he cured, even in
some ol its most distressing forms. We are
1 not, however,skeptical enough to suppose that
I this or any other remedy is capable of curing
j 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 iife 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^suf
fering, and may prolong life for years. Such
indeed are the astonishing healing and resto
rative properties ol this Balsam, that e\en in
the worst foriTis of “Consumption, ’ when the
patient has; suffered with the most distressing
cough, violent pains in the chest, difficulty ot
1 breathing, night sweats, bleeding of the lungs,
Stc , and when the most esteemed remedies ol
our Pharmacopias had failed to afford any re
lief, and after numerous other remedies had
been used for many months in vain, this in
valuafile remedy has been productive of the
most astonishing relief. In the early stages ol
the disease, proceeding from neglected co.ds,
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 early grave, the use
I of this medicine has arrested every symtom,
| and restored the lungs to a state of perfect
j health.
In that form of Consumption, so prevalent
amongst delicate young females, commonly
1 --i\r Orrmncv inin a decline a
complaint with which thousands are lingering,
it has also been used with surprising success,
and not only possesses the power ol 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 remedv in Liver complaints, Asthma,
! Bronchitis, &c.,especially when attended with
a cough, hoarseness, soreness of the throat, or
oppressed breathing, it has been usea^ with
equal suceesa, and cured many cases oi years
standing, after every tiling else had failed.—
in common eotizhs and colds croup in children
whirh prevail so extensively throughout the
| winter, it will be found much more effectual
1 than any remedy in use, and when colds set
tle upon the lungs,causi* gau inflammation with
| pains in the breast, difficulty or shortness of
breathing, &c., the use of this Balsam will
suppress the symptoms immediately, and at
the same time 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 but two years have
elapsed since it w&s first made public, we can
proudly say It 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.—

Sands SARSAPARILLA —Improvement
in whatever regards the happiness and
I welfare of our race is constantly on ihe

j ing day some new problem is solved, or some
profound secret is revealed, having an impor

destinies. If we take a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is the mind
\ struck with wonder! What rapid strides has
1 science made in every department of civiliz
ed iife! particularly in that which relates to
the human system in health and disease.
How valuable and indispensable are the cura

I prevalent diseases, much valuable practical
. knowledge ha9 been gained. In consequence
cf becoming acquainted with theorgamza

’structures of the system, remedies have been
1 sought after and discovered exactly adapter,
to combine wiih, neutralize and expt, mor
bific matter, the cause of disease,and subs -

ful simplicity of this mode of treatment is not
grateful to the sufierer, but perfectly in conso
nance with the operations ol Nature, andsn
! ttsfaciory to the views and reasonings ol ev

that Sands's Sarsaparilla, a scientific com
bination of essential principles of the nu bt
valuable vegetable substances, operates upon
the syste.i The Sarsaparilla is combined
with ihe most effectual aids, the most saint a
ry productions, the most potent simples of
vegetable kingdom; ami its unprecedented
success in the restoration to health ol tno^e
who had long pined under the most distress
ing chronic maladies, has given it an exa.teu
character, furnishing as it does evidence ol its
own intrinsic value, and recommending it to
the alllicted in terms the afflicted only can
know It has long been a most important ae
sideratum in the practice of medicine to ob
tain a remedy similar to ibis-one that would
acton the liver, stomach and bowels with all
the precision and potency of mineral prepara
