Atw and inlereeting diecoeery in vegeUMe medicine.
DEHIILER'H Anti-periodic wFever and
Ague Fills, are a certain cure lor all that ehuja
of malarious and periodic complaints knows us chills
and fever, fever and ague, dumb ague, irregularity
in women, Ac. Ac., without the aid of those noxious
drugs usually relied upon, vis: calomel, arsenic, or
quinine. . .
After many years' patient experiment and research
as a Pharmaceutist, the undersigned candidly believes
that he has perfected a remedy nir the above and kin
dred complaints, which will curs at leaat ninety^five
case* out of every hundred. He feels, vsrv sensibly,
that this sounds boastful and chimerical, but ho has
now used It, under his own observation, upon more
than one thousand severe cases without one failure.
Before aaking the confidence of the public, how
over, and without making any drafts upon its credu
lity, the inventor of this medicine desires to show that
hiu statement* arc not those of a reckless and unprin
cipled man. We therefore ask attention to the follow
ing joint certificate from the Hon. William A. Newell,
11. D., late member of Congress from New Jersey,
and A. D. Newell, M. D., an eminently successful sur
geon and physician, of New Brunswick, V. J.
Tb Phyeiciant and the Public.
I " Having extensively used ' Dcshlcr's Anti-periodic
or Fever and Ague Pills,' in our practice, we take
Bleasure in stating thus publicly our experience of
ieir efficacy. We have used them in hundreds of
! cases of fever and ague, and have never known a per
son to have a second chill after commencing yith
them; and as they contain no salt of arsenic or qui
nine, the former of which sometimes operates so dele
te riously as an accumulative poison, we consider thom
a safe and valuable remedy, that ought to bo Within
reach of every family that is liable to chills and fever.
To our professional brethren we deem it proper to
say, thai we have been made acquainted with the
composition of these pills, and find them strictly a
ecientitic preparation. Moreover, as they are prepared
by an apothecary of more than twenty years' active
experience, we can vouch that they are skilfully com
pounded. We earnestly commend them to the no
tice of the profession, and believe they will cure after
all usual remedies have failed."
? WM. A. NEWELL. M. D.
In their own State both these gentlemen have an
extensive practice, and enjoy, to an enviable degree,
the confidence of the public. There they would ob
tain universal credit. But as we deaire to prepossess
every citiien of the United States with our truthful
ness and good faith, we subjoin the following note
from a gentleman known and reverenced throughout
the Union?the Hon. Theodore Frelinghuysen, LL. 1).
Note from the Hon. Theodore FreHngkuynen.
" From the professional character and reputation
of Drs. Newell, above' named, and the esteem in which
these gentlemen, with Mr. Deshler, are held in this
State,! take pleasure in stating that any representa
tions mads bv them are worthy of pubic confidence."
Nww Bstiwrwicx, N. J., Jan. 84,1854.
Owing to the floods of quack medicines with which
the country has been deluj^d, and which have proved
so uniformly worthless, the discoverer of this remedy
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 oomplaints with one remedy, miserably fail to cure
any; and he has feared that the public, which has
been so often shamelessly deceived, would deny him
its attention. He relies, however, that the *bove cer
tificates give him a title to its confidence and atten
tion while making the following statement:
We claim for our remedy the following petmliari
tiee and advantage) by which it is distinguished from
PeculiarUiee of Dmhler't AnU-Periodic Pille.
M lgt They exert a marked, spocific, and almost in
fallible anti-periodic power, by which they neutralise
the periodical and oonstantly-recurring attacks which
characterise fever and ague. The law by which the
remedy acts overpowers the Isw of the disease.
2d. While they thus manifest great activity and
power, they are yet perfectly harmless. A well per
son (even if an infant) may take groat quantities not
only without inconvenience, but without seeming
effect of any kind.
Sd. They never disagree with the weakest stomach,
almost instantly restore sppetite, and break un that
distressing sense of bodily prostration which always
accompanies this disease.
4th. They nsay be taken without rqrari to age, sex,
diet, or drink, and on a journey as safely a* at home.
5th. Thsy are not only anti-periodic, but anti-bil
ious also.
Atli They contain no salt of mercury, arsenic, or
AJvaniagn of DeMetfe Fever and Ague Remedy.
I 1st It is not liquid. There is no danger of loss by
evaporation, or by coming in contact wrth clothing.
I. It is perfectly portable. A down boxes may b*
[Hit in a Setdhtx powder box. One box may be aent
bv mail to any part of the Union for aix cents, ex
cept California or Oregon, or to thoee places for
twelve eents.
ad. It is tasteless and without oder. AU other
remedies for the disease are bitter and nauseous, and
are taken with difficulty by children or delicate per

may be procured at wholesale or retail, of
