IDE.. J. s. ICARCJHISI'S
CELEBRATED CATHOLICON For the Relief and Cure of Suffering Females. f|T stands pre-eminent for curative powers in all the diseaaea Inr which it is recommended usu- Frmale Complaints. Ol these are Prolapsus Uteri, or Falling of the Womb; Flour Albu*, or Whiles; Chronic Inflam mation and Ulceration ol the Womb; Incidental Hemorrhage,or Flood ing; Painful Suppressed, and Irregular Men struation, &c., with all their accompanying evils, (Cancer excepted,) no matter how se vere or how long standing. This medicine has never been introduced by empty puffa and misrepresetitatione, nor is it intended that its present popularity shall be sustained by any meuium but its merits and the approbation of the public. REFERENCES. T feel it a duty incumbent upon myself to declare publicly the great blessing Dr. Mar ohisi's Uterine Catholicon has proved to me. For two year? my health was miserable; I was almost unable to walk. Physicians pro nounced my case falling of the womb, exten sive ulcerations, commencing with flour al bus. The pains, irritation, prostration, &c., rendered lite a burden. In this miserable condition, Dr. F. P. Newland recommended Dr. Marchisi's Uterine Catholicon. After ta king four bottles 1 found rov?e|f in perfect health. Gratitude for my restoration makes me ardently desire that all my sex, a like unfortunate, may find sure reliefltom thia in estimable medicine. ELIZABETH A. NEWLAND, No. 19 West St., Utica, N. Y. The above statement I know to be true, F. P. NEWLAND, M. D., Utica, New York. I would be *glad to have a further supply, aa the medicine is becoming very popular, and 1 think will continue, as it has given re lief in every instance where properly taken. THOMAS NEWMAN, M. D , Mt. Vernon, Ind. Prevail on medical men to adopt it in their practice; and I have 'no fear* of the result, from what knowledge I have obtained per sonally of its curative powers. I wish the medicine kept here. T. C. HAWKINS, M. D., Waynesburg, Pa. I must say, from my own experience and personal observations in my practice, it has proved to be the best and safest remedy lor tbe difficulties for which it is recommended, viz.: those of female weakness, such as Pro lapsus Uteri, Flour Albus, and all irregular and painful menstruation, and diseases of ir ritation of tbe female organs. D. Y. FOOTE, M. D , Syraouse, N. Y. Tbe claims of this medicine to the confi dence of the public are strengthened by the fact of its having received the approbation and patronage of many prominent members of the Medical Faculty in the United States, some ol whom have voluntarily given letters of commendation, (see pamphlet,) sustaining all that is claimed lor it as a curative agent. Pamphlets containing much useful infor mation touching the nature and symptoms of the above diseases, together with testimoni als from ladies of the highest respectability, as certified by the most satisfactory authori ty, to all which the attention of ladies and practitioners is respectfully invited, can be had gratis at the store of J. R. MOYF.R, Agent, Druggist, Bloomsburg, Pa. Also told by most of the leading Druggists in tbe country. I, B. MARCHISI & CO., Proprietors. Central Depot, 304 Broadway, N. Y.

The author argues particularly, most strongly against every species of self-defilement, and warns parents and guardians, in searching terms, to guard the young of both sexes from the terrible ronsequences concomitant of thoir ignorance of phyological laws and sexual im purities and irregularities, whether exhibited ny precocious development or arising fiom the viscious and corrupting examples of their school mates or olheiwise.
