best Purgative ami Liver Medicines now
before the public, namely : ^.SANtORO S
INVIGORATOR, OR LIVER REMED\,that
acts as a Cathaitic, easier, milder, and more
effectual than an v other medicine known. It »s
not only a Cathartic, bm a Liver remedy, acting
first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter,
then on tiie stomach and bowels to carry off that
matter, thus accomplishing two purposes effec
tually, without any of the painful feelings ex-j
perienced in the operations of most ( a’hartics.
It strengthens the system at the same time tiiat
it purges it. and when taken daily in moderate
doses will strengthen and build it up with unu
sual rapidity.
DR SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR is com
pounded entirely from new articles of medicine,
namely. Gums.
Some idea of the strength of these gums may
he formed when it is known that one bottle ot
the Invigorator contains as much strength as one
hundred doses ot Calomel, without any ot its >
deleterious effects.
Though possessing rare medicinal powers,
these Gums have been hut little known to physi
cians, and never used in their prescriptions un- .
til used in the form of the Invigorator, which
met with such unprecedented success as to in
duce the proprietor to offer it as a family medi
cine, tried and known in its effects. It has rare
ly ever failed to cure Liver Complaints in their
worst forms.
INDIGESTION being caused by a deranged
Liver iscured when the Liver is excited to action
JAUNDICE is caused by an improper action
of the Liver, and as a proot that the Invigorator i
relieves this disease, let any one troubled with i
Jaundice take tht Invigorator regularly one !
week, and their sxin will begin to assume its ori
ginal color.
COSTIVENESS can be permanently cured by
the Invigorator. Take it in small doses on re- j
tiring, and it assists nature in her operations, j
Bygr adually diminishing the dose, the bowels
are left in a healthy and active state, and work (
as regularly as clock work.
SICK HEADACHE is very soon relieved by
taking a double dose of the Invigorator, which j
corrects all acidity and sournessofthe stomach. |
For an over-loaded stomach it has no equal, as
it relieves all oppressive or uneasy feeling alter
eating heartily. For a family medicine gene- :
rally, all who use it speak in the highest terms.
DR. SANFORD'S INVIGORATOR came to
ne rannimnnililiiil 9C f* 11 TP fllT i.lVf*r ( .Off) 1)1 <L1111S.
mil all diseases arising Irom a Diseased Elver.
ITie testimonials ol so many of our Physicians
in its favor, induced us to try it, and now con* |
fiction is certain that it is one ot the greatest |
blessings ever given to Dyspeptics, tor it made j
i complete cure before the tirst bottle was taken
Mid now we can eat anything edible without
trouble, while before nothing but the lightest
food would digest, and often that gave pain.—
Now’ what we want to say to all our readers is,
it Liver Complaint or Dyspepsia trouble you,
lo not tail to try this the greatest lemedy in the
world.—State Fact.
We take infinite pleasure in recommending this
medicine as a preventive tor Fevkr and Agus,
Chill Fkver. and all Fkvkrs ol a Bilious Ttpr.
It operates with certainty, and thousands are
willing to testify to its wonderful virtues.
There has never been tri<°d in our family a
remedy which has met with such unbounded
success in the cure of diseases incident to chil
dren, as DR. SANFORD’S INV1GORATOR;
nor is it alone for diseases of children that we
use it; for it acts as a Cathartic so mildly and
gently, and seems to renovate the system so
thoroughly that we think w e are doing a service
to all in advising them, when they need medi
cine. to try this remedy. There are cases that
have come under uur notice w tiere great benefit
has been received in diseases of the Liver,
Stomach, and Bowels, where all other remedies
failed to give relief. It has become so useful in
our family that we will not be without it.—
Jacksonville. Jin. Republican.
We w ish all who are sick and debilitated to
try this remedy, and test it thoroughly, and any
w ho are not benefited by its use we should like
to hear from, as we have yet to hear from the
first person who has used a bottle ot Invigora
tor without receiving benefit, for there are such
astonishing medicinal viitues in it, that all, no !
matter how long they have been affected, it
their complaint aiises from a deranged Liver,
will be benetitted, if not entirely cured. Price

CAUGHT THE PANIC.
A tall, laok, Jerusalem sort of fellow,
pretty well under the influenoe of Mr. Alco
hol, was observed swinging to a lamp post on
Fifth street last night. He was talking quite
loudly to the aforesaid post, when a guardian
of the night approached him.
“Come, sir, you are makiog too much
noise;” said the watchman.
“Noise? who's that said noise?” asked
the post-holder, as he skewed bis head and
endeavored in vain to give the intruder a so
ber look.
“It was me,” replied the watchman, as
he exposed his silvered nombersto full view.
“You? and who in the d—1 are you? It
'taint me tbat'e makiog of the noise. No,
sir. It's the bank's that's a making of the
noise. They are a breakin', a crushin , and
a sinashin' of things to an incredible amount.
Noise? It’s the banker's that are a makin'
of the noise. They areacussio', a rippin',
and a stavin' all 'round. It's the brokers
that are a makin' of the noise. They are a
hollerin', an' a yelpin', and a ecreechin’, like
wild injun, over the times, that worsers eve
rybody but themselves. No, sir, it aiot me
that's a makin' of the noise.”
“You are tight as a briek in a new wall,”
said the officer, amused at the good nature of
the individual.
“Me tight? Who said I wae tight? No,
sir, you are mistaken. It'e not me that’s
tight. It's money that's tight. Go down ou
Third street, an' they'll tell you there that
money is tight. Go into the workshops, an'
you fiod money is tight. Head the newspa
pers an' you’ll fiod out that it's money
that's tight. Me tight? I've got nary a red,
but Kanawha, and the d—1 couldn't get
tight oo that. No, sir, I'm not tight.”
“Then you are drunk.”
“Drunk? Stranger yer out of it again.—
The world's drunk. The hull community is
a staggerin’ 'round, buttin' their beads agin
stone walls and a skiooin' of their noses on
the curbstone of adversity. Yes, sir, we’re
all drunk—that is, everybody's druok but
me. I'm sober, sober as a polios judge oo a
rainy day. I ain't drunk; no, sir, stranger,
I ain't drunk.’'
“Wbat are you making suob a fool of your
self for, then?”
nil I a O' T» _ - f 1 T >
rouu oir, t iu uu * iu uwhwp-’"'**
I've catched the cootagioo. I’m afflicted.”
“Are you sick?”
“Eiactly.”
“What's the matter with you?”
"I've got the jtanics.”
“The what?”
“The panics, sir; it'a goiag to carry off
this town. I'te tried to eaoapo by hard
drink, but it's no use. The panics have got
me, sure.”
The watchman, more amused than ever,
tendered bis sympathy, and, what was bet
ter, his aid, to the panic-stricken Individual.
In the course of half an hour he had the
pleasure of putting him into the door of his
boarding-house, and pointing out to him the
best remedy—a soft bed sod a loog slumber.

MORE JERROLDS.
We do not remember having met with
theso anecdotes of the deceased wit before:
At a dinner of a society connected with
the fine arts, where a queen'* counsel hap
pened to be present, the law was unexpect
edly toasted, out of compliment to him. The
learned gentleman blundered out a few sen
tences, stating that be did not see how tho
law could be considered as one of the arts.—
"Black!” rapped out Jerrold, like a dart
from a bow.
A dull foreigner was indulging in a raptu
rous description of the beauties of the JVo
digue.
“As to one song in particular, (naming the
song.) I was quite carried away.” Is there
anybody here that can siog itT,f said Jer
rold.
Somebody told Jerrold that George Rob
ins, the auctioneer, was dead; “and, of
course,” added the gentleman, “his business
will go to the devil.” “Oh, then, he'll get it
again.” said the wit.
