FOE ALL THE PURPOSES 01 A
FAMILY PHYSIC.
Thekb has long existed a public demand for aa
effective purgative pill which could be rslied on as
ut-e and perfectly safe in its operation. This has
been prepared to "meet that demand, and an exten
sive trial of its virtues has conclusively shown with
what success it accomplishes the purpose designed.
It is csjv to make a physical pill, but not easy to
e.iako the best of all pill one which should bars
none of the. objections, but all the advantages, of
every other. This has been attompted here, and
with what asiccc-is we would respectfully submit to
liie public decision. It has been unfortunate for
She patient .hitherto that almost every purgative
medicine i acrimoiiiotis and irritating to the bow
el. This is not. Many of them produce so much
" t riping pain and revulsion in the system as to more
rian counterbalance the good to be derived from
. I.icm. , These pills', produce no irritation or pain,
Miles it arUe from a previously existing obstruc
tion or darangemcnt in the bowels. Being pdrely
regctable, no harm can arise from their use m any
quantity ; but it is better that any medians should
betaken judiciously. Minute directions. for their
um in the several 'diseases to which thetareap-.
plieable are given on the box. ' Anions; the com
plaints which have been speedily cured by there, we
.may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forma
of Jaundice," Indigestion, Languor and Irfiss of Ap
Wtite, Listlessness, Irritability- Bilious Headache,
bilious Few, Fever and Ague, Pain ha ths Sid
and Loins : for. iu truth, all these are but the eon-
sequence of distuned action iu the liver. As an
aperient, tliev afford prompt and sure relief in Co
KIm. folic. -Dvssnterv. Humors. Serof-
ula and iicurvv, Olds" w'ith soreness of the body,
Clears and inipiirity of the- blood ; in short, any
-and everv case where s purgative is required.
They have also produced some singularly sut
eessful euros in Rbeumati-rm, Gout, Dropsy, Gravel,
Krrsipelas, Palpitation of the Heart, Pains in the
Back, Stomach, and Side. They should be fresly
taken in the spring of the year, to purify the blood
and prepare the system for the change of seasons.
An- occasional dose stimulates the stomach and
bowels into healthy action, and restores the appe
tite and vigor. They purify the. blood, and, by their ;
stimulant' action on the circulatory system, reno
vate the strength of the bodv, snd Testore tbs
wasted or diseased energies of the whole organism.
Hence an occasional dose is advantageous, even
though no serious derangement exists; but un
necessary dosing should never be carried too far,
as everv purgative medicine reduces the strength,
when taken to excess. The thousand eases in which
a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, bt
they nggwt themselves to the reason of every
' bodv'; and it is confidently believed this pill will
answer a better purpose than say thing which has
hitherto been available to mankind. When their
virtues are once known, the public will no longer
doubt what- remedy to employ when in need of
eathartie medicine. Being sugar-wrapped they are :
pleasant to take, and being purely vegetable, no
harm ean arise from their use in any quantity.
For niinute directions see wrapper on the Box.

This remedy has won for itself such notoriety
h orn iu cures of every variety of pulmonary disease,
that it is entirely unnecessary to recount the evi
dence of its virtues in any community where it .
has been employed. So wide is the field of its use
fulness, and so numerous the cases of its cures,
that almost every section of the country abounds
in persons publicly known, who have been restored
from alarming and even desperate- diseases of the
lungs by its use. When once tried its superiority
ever every other medicine of its kind is too appar
ent to escape observation, and where its virtues are
known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote
to emplov for the distressing and dangerous affeo
tions of the pulmonary organs which are incident
to our climate. And not only in formidable at
tacks upon the lungs, but for the milder varieties
of Colds, Coughs, Hoarsbnbss, Ae.; and for
' Childkbn it is the pleasantect and safest medicine
that can be obtained. - -

people its quality is kept up to the best that it ever
has been and that the genuine article is sold by
