It is made from ilia best Barley that can be

In Oravel, Gout, nml Rheumatism; in Ob

Debility of the Urinary Functions, us. ef
fects are prompt, decided, and invariably re
liable. And it is not only a Itemed) lur these

The distressing effect upon the Stomach,
Bowels, and Bladder, to travelers, new resi
dents and all persona unaccustomed to litem
produced by the waters of nearly all our great

I beg leave to call the attention of the pub
lic to lite following letters from physicians ;
" Laboratory, N. Y., May 2, 1855.
MR. I'PUOLPIIO U'Ol.FE— Dear Sir: I can
not speak loWghly ofihe purity of youi Schi
ejntn Schnapps. It is decidedly superior to
anything of the kind in market. It is per
ffectly free from the admixture ot fusil nil,
or of any of those arnylie compounds which
■lroduce such a mischievous and irreparable
•■fleet upon the constitution, and which very
lew samples of alcoholic distilled liquors are
•without—most otlhein largely impreg
nated with it. I have personally inspected
the various process of distillation practiced
at Schiedam, and know that unusual care is
taken lo separate the noxious eletnems
from ihe pure alcohol, ami your Schnapps iS
a striking proof of its success. As a medici
nal agent for chronic and renal affections, 1
have successfully prescribed it, and recom
mend it as an agreeable cordial and harm
less stimulant, and shall continue to do so ;
us well as to usd it as a source of pure alco
hol for cbeniical investigations and experi
ments. Yours obedient, ISAIAH DECK.
Consulting Analytical Chemist."
Dr. Charles A. Leas, Commissioner of
Health, Baltimore, writes as follows in rela
tion lo the value of Schnapps as a remedy
in chronic catarrhal complaints, fro. The
loiter is dated July 27, 1853:
" take great pleasure in bearing highly
creditable testimony to its efficacy as a rem
edial agent ill tho diseases for winch yon rec
ommend it. Having a natural tendency to
the mocous surfaces, with a slight degree of
stimulation, I regard it as one of the most
important remedies in chronic catarrhal af
fections, particularly those of the genilo uri
nary apparatus. With much ropsect, your
obedient servant, CHAHI.ES A. LEAS.

•• Mr. Udolpho Wolfe, No, 2 Beaver St., N.
Y. Dear Sir : Last season the writer received
through your agent in this city, a bottle of
your Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps, and sinco
that period has prescribed the sumo in cor'.aiu
forms of urinory complaints, also in cases of
debility In aged persons. So the Schnap) s
has been of much benefit to those using- it
* * In conclusion, where a diuretic and
stimulant is required, I should use the Aio
malic tiehieduor Schnapps. hanking you for
your kindness, 1 am respectfully yours,

The subjoined letter from Dr PAUSE, of
Manchester, N. H„ rolntes lo one of lira most
\aluuble medicinal properties potsossed by the
Aromatic Schnapps, sod shows that it acta as

•'Mr. WoLTS : —Permit mo lo address you
a few lines, which you are at liberty to use if
you ibink proper, in respect lo your medicine,
called Schiedam Schnapps. I have had a very
oostinatc caso of gravel and stone, of some five
years standing, causing very acute pain in
cveiy attempt to urinate, After using many
remedies without much relief, I was induced to
try a hcltle of your medicine. In tho course
ofthrece days it proved effectual, dislodging
large pieces of stone, aomo of which were as
large as a marrowfat pea. X continued the cor
dial, according to directions, and the patient
continued lo gain, and ia fast recovering, I
lliiuk a medicine of so much value in so dis
