SANDS SARSAPARILLA —Improvement
in whatever regards the happiness and
welfare of our rave is constantly on
march to perfection, and with each succeed*
ing dav some new problem is solved, or some
profound se«re» is revealed, having an impor
tant and direct hearing over maR’s highest
destinies. If we take a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is the mind
struck with wonder! What rapid strides has
science made in every department of civiliz
cd iite! pailicuhrly in that which relates to
the human system in health and disease.
How valuable and indispensa hie are ihe cura

grateful to the suflerer. but perfec’lv in conso

that Sands's Sarsaparilla, a scientific com

valuable vegetable substances, operates upon
the gysten . The Sarsaparilla is combined
with :he most effectual aids, the most saluta

NEWAtlK, N. j. uec. 15,
Messrs. Samis: Gentlemen—Words cannot
express the gratitude 1 feel for your t rent rue iff
to me, «i strange* suffering under one of the
most loathsome diseases that nature is capa
ble of hearing The disease with which 1
was afflicted commenced with imfiam motion
ol‘the eves, in the year 1S.46, which caused a -
mos* total blindness. For this 1 was treated
and finally relieved, but. the remedies were
such as to cause the developemfut of a scro
fulous affection on mv left arm near the elbow.
The pain extended from the shoulder ;o
the end of ir.v fingers, and for iwo years mv
sufferings were beyond description. I tried

sicians in New N **rk and amongst them the
late Dr. Bushe, who told me the disease of
the arm was caused bv ttie large quantity
oi mercury taken to cure the inflammation of
mv eves.
My sufferings continued, the arm enlarged,
tumours formed in different places, and in a
few months discharged, making ten running
ulcers at one time, some above and some
below t he el how, and the discharge was so
offensive that no person could bear to be in
the room where l was. 11tien applied to an
other distinguished ‘Physician, who told me
amputation of the arm was the only thing that
could save n»v life, as it was impossible to
cure so dreadful a disease; but as l was un
willing to consent to it he recommended me
to use Swain’s Panacea (reely, winch I did
without deriving but little bench*. “for

had been my situation for seven years of my
ttfc when l commenced the use ofvonrSarsa

less, and the near prospect of a speedy disso

HANCE'S SARS \PARILLA, VEGETAr
BLE, OR BLOOD PILLS, forthe pmmo
tion of Health and the purification of the Blood.
WHAT IS LIFE?—'THE BLOOD.
When the blood becomes impure or imperfectly
circulated, if gives rise to the followingH:aCa>es:
LIVER COMPLAINT.
When the blood (in an impure state) in traversing
the body deposites its impurities on the liver, it
gives rise to liver complaint, the principal symp
toms of which are a bilious hue of the skin,—with
dull, heavy, and wandering pains about the right
.side, shoulder and back,—by a loss of appetite,
indigestion, occasional fevers,difficulty of breath
ing, extreme deidiitv. and many times with a
cough; resembling cunsuuipiioii. I his disease has
long been amongst the most uncertain objects ol
medical skill, and, being nearly allied to pulmona
ry consumption, is very difficult, ot cure; owing
also lo the uncertainty which attends the use ol
medicines in tins disease, it is generally allowed
to take its own course unmolested. A few box
es of
IlAI\r( K/S SARSAPARILLA PILI>,
taken to purify the blood and purge away the im
purities, will in all cases give immediate relief.
CUTANEOUS DISEASES,
By the term is meant diseases ot the skin, which
always arise from some derangement ot the blood
thereby causing eruptions, pimpies, blotches, and
excessive heat of the blood, accompanied by a vi
olent itching of the skin.
HANC1TS SARSAPARILLA PILLS,
If taken according to the directions for purifying
the blood, will effect a cure in a very short time.
. SINGING IN THE EARS
When impuritiesfrom the Mood becomo deposit
ed on the drum of the car, it causes a peculiar
sound in the head, commonly known as “singing
in the ears;” a few boxes of
HANCK’S SARSAPARILLA PILLS
will cure the most obstinate eases.
DIMNESS OF VISION OR SIGHT
Is occasioned by the impurities existing in the
blood becoming deposited around the eyeballs.
HEADACHE AND SINGING or rnr- HEAD,
These diseases are caused by impure depositions
of the blood settling on the brain.
HANCJTS SARSAPARILLA PILLS,
will in all causes effect a radical cure.
Jn purchasing these pills, let me add
