Owing to the floods of quack medicines with which
the country hus been deluged, and which have proved
so uniformly worthless, the discoverer of^this ? y
has long hesitated to come before the public. Having
regard for his character, he has been unwilling to be
classed with the pretenders who, undertaking to cure
all complaints with one remedy, miserably fail.to em*
any; and he has feared that the j>ublio which has
been bo often shamelessly deceived, would deny him
its attention. He relies, however, that the above cer
tificates give him a title to its confidence and atten
tion while making the following statement:
We claim for our remedy the following
tie? and advantage* by which it is distinguished from
others. ? .
Peculiarities of DeeUtfe Anti-Periodic Pill*.
1st. They exert a marked, specific, and almost in
fallible anti-periodic power, by which they neutralize
the periodical and constantly-recurring attacks.which
characterize fever and ague. The law by which th
remedy acts overpowers the law of the disoase.
2d. 'While they thus manifest great activity and
nowcr they are yet perfectly liarmless. A well per
son (even if on infant) may take great quantities not
only without inconvenience, but without seeming
efl8d! Theyiaever disagree with the weiikeRtstomacli,
almost iustantly restore appetite, and break "Pjhat
distressing sense of bodily pro?tr?tion which always
