Theuk has long existed public demand for an cfTective purgutive pill which could be relied on aa sura and perfectly safe in its operation. This has been prepared to meet that demand, nnd an exton- ive trial of its titIiim ban conclusively shown with what success it accomplishes the purpose designed. It is easy to make a plit-siual pill, but not easy to make the bait of nil pilis one which should hava iinne of the objections, but all the advantages, of every other. Thi has been attempted hero, and with wlmt succcts we would respectfully submit to lV.e pr.biie decision. It has been unfortunate for patient hitherto tht almost every purgative :u-tliciiio u aijriinuiiioua and irritating to the bow cl. This is not. Many of tlifim pn)duce so much rripini; pain sml rflvuhien in tiie Bystem nt to more l.iau counU-rl-til.mcc the wood to l;e deriTcJ from t:cm. These pills produce no irritation or pain, :ile il arise from a previously existing obstrnc. tion cr durnneMteut in the howels. Beins purely j?otahle, no harm can arise from Iheir use in any quantity ; bul it is Letter that .my medicine should . lit tiiku judiciously. Minute directions for tlicir ure in the snvcr.il 'diseases to whioh they are iip ph'exbte are Riven on the box. Among the com plaints which hare heen speedily cured by them, wo n;ay mention Liver Complaint, 'in its various forma ' of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Ap petite, ListhiKsnr-ss, Initnl.-ility, Bilious Headache, itilioua r'uvsr, Kevcr and Ac;ue, Pain iu the Side and lxiini ;' fT, in truth, all these are but the con sc'inanre of dineased. action ia the liver.

An r.Lxa&i'insJ dose .utimiilates the stomach and JLo.uls into hesiihy action, and restore the Ppe ttf and vigor. They purify the blood, and, by their stimulant action on the circulatory system, reno vate the strength of the body, and restore the wnxtcd or dieastd energies of the whole oramre. Hence an. nernsional dose is advuntageous; even though .no serious derangement exists; but ub neewssary dr.sin? sl-.nuld never he carried too far, as every purgative mcilirine reducos the strength, tvticn taken to excess. The thousand cases in which a physic w required cannot be enamerated here, bat they sugyest theiusc'.vea to the reason of every body; and It ia confidently believed this pill will answer a bettor purpose than any thine which has hithorto bcon available to mankind.
