These Powders form a very ralaabla Anodyne, Di
aphoretic and Sudoriflo compound. They are bene
ficially administered in Fever, at Anthony's Fire, or
Erysipelas, Diarrhoea, Dyaantery, Cholera Morbus;
and in all cases where an anodyne. combined with a
sudorific, is required In theae diseases, it should
be administered in small doses. It is also applicable
to many other diseases, such ss rheumatism and
gout, colic, and griping pains, Ac. It promotes per
spiration without increasing the beat of the body, and
produoos a oonstant moisture of the skin for a great
length of time, while it allays irritation and gives
rest. 50 cents. s?p 15?eodly
Alterative Syrnp for all Impurities ol
the Blood.
This Syrup has been proved in thousands of cases
to be an unequalled remedy for Scrofula, Salt-Rheum,
Mercurial, Syphilitic or Venereal, ?u?d Eruptive dis
eases; for Jaundice, Erysipelas, Boils, Ulocrs, Uheu
matiam, Gout. CuUdooui Affections, or Diswioi ol
the Skin, as Blotches, Pimples, or Pustules, and all
Itching Eruptions, Ac. The design of this ttyrup ia
to re-establish the hsalthy functions of the system,
without producing any very sensible evacuation; not
being intended to not particularly npon the bowels,
but airectly,*nd with the greatest effect, upon tiie
Blood , ,
I have tried every preparation used by modern
Physicians, with the most distinguished and oelebrsr
tea patent nostrums, now so highly extolled; as the
various Panaceas. Sarsaparilla Syrups, Balsams, and
Extracts; and. after repeated trials for years, in dif
ferent forms of disease, I have found that this Syrup,
beyond all compuriaon, far exceeds them alL In
Chronic Inflammation of the Liver White Swelling,
Necrosis, or Fever Sores, Rickets. Fistula, and King s
Evil; in short, in every taint of the system or blood,
from whstever cause ft mav arise, or however long
standing, this medicine will be a pre-eminently supe
rior article, and of the highest value in all oases tor
which it is recommended. Price $1.
Sudorific Tincture or Sioeating Drops.
This medicine is truly unsurpassed in fulfilling the
indications for which it is given, which is generally
to produce free perspiration; hence its great and pro
eminent value in Bevere and violent colds and coughs,
fevers, inflammations, pleurisy, neuralgia, qninsy s
and also in allaying pain, however acute, as in bil
ious oholic, rheumatism, gravel, retention of urine,
painful menstruation, Ac. Price 50 cents.
Compound ITlmv* Ponder*, for Poultices.
This Powder made into Poultices is the most effi
cacious of any of the various kinds recommended,
and among all the different kinds used, I know ol
none which is equal to this for all inflammations
whether of the eyes, face, limbB or other parts of
the body?for Burns, Ulcers, Sore and Inflamed
Breasts, .Erysipelas or St. Anthony's Fire,
White Swellings, King's Evil, or Scrofulous and Fe
ver Sores, and Cuts. Inflamed Wounds, CarbuncleiL
Ac. It rapidly diminishes pain, heat, swelling, and
where there iB any gathering of purulent matter, it
promotes a free and easy suppuration. A better ar
ticle of the kind is not to be found. Price 50 cents
This article has been extensively used many yeai>
by the original proprietor, in hiB private practice in
thousands of cases in this city, (New York,) and
throughout the country, with invariable BiicceBs; he
can, therefore, with coufldenoe, recommend it as su
perior to any preparation of the kind now in use; it
is admirably calculated to restore tone to the muscu
lar fire, ana thereby impart, strength and energy to
the whole system. It will be found exceedingly val
uable in all cases of Debility, Dyspepsia, Pain in the
Breast Weakness of the Lungs, Nervous Complaints,
and those inward complaints peculiar to females,
such as Fluor Albus, or Whites, Prolapsus Uteri, or
r ailing of the Womb, Ac.
By giving tone to the digestive organs, they are
peculiarly useful in Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Ner
vous Diseases, and are thus beneficial in removing
Flatulency, Ac. In short, they will be found a valu
able preparation in all cases where a strengthening
remedy is required. This medicine haB long been in
great demand, and has the justly deserved reputation
of being nnrivalled in its value and efficacy. Price
50 cents.
Theoe drops are remarkably well calculated to al
lay tlio irratibility of the Bronchial tubes and lungs,
aiid thus cure colds, coughs, soreness and pain of
the chest and lungs, and iufluenia. Thfiy contain no
preparation of opium, or other narcotic, and possess
the peculiar property of removing irritation without
producing excitement of the system. They promote
expectoration, and mitigate and remove in a short
time the moat distressing Colds, Coughs, Hoarse
ness, and other Bronchial Affections. 1 hey are per
fectly innocent as well as pleasant, and may there
fore be taken with safety by pettous of every age,
and under all circumstances. Price 50 cents.
These Powders are very serviceable in Catarrh
and other obstructions of the nose and head. They
Sromote a free discharge from the nasal glands, and
iminish the pressure of blood upon the brain, re
lieve headache, mid have often cured polypus in the
nose. Colds which affect the head, eyes, and fances,
and which produce a tightness or stricture across
the forehead will be relieved by these Powders.
Prioe 25 cents.
For Diarrkaxt, Cooler a Morbus, and Summer
Complainth of Children.
This Medicine possesses the power, in a very re
markable manner, of neutralixing the acidity of the
Stomach, or removing the morbid or acrid secretions
of the Liver, which are the exciting causes of bowel
complaints in general. It allays sickness of the sto
mach, removes the pain, causos healthy evacuations
from the bowels, at the same time nets as a gentlo
astringent Hence it will be found a very superior
and vnluable remedy, in both acute and chronic dis
eases of the bowels, in Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Chole
ra Morbus, and Summer Complaiuts of Children. In
all these complaints the liver is usually more or less
affected, the stomach in an irritable, and the bowels
in an inflamed condition. Thin medicine is most
effectual in relieving all these organs, restoring their
tone and natural fuuetions. Among all the numer
ous remedies for these diseases, some of which are
strongly recommended, this has proved itself, in every
instance, to be the best, the surest, safest, and most
effective of all. I do not think its equal can be found
for children when teething, or as a remedy for bowel
complaints. Price 50 cents.
Hepatic, or Liner Pills, for Complaints of the
Jher are truly an extraordinary remedy for Liver
Compfaint, and havo invariably met with unexam
pled success, in thousands of most difficult cases of
very long standing. These pills remove all obstruc
tions of the Liver, and act specially on this organ,
by changing and regulating its secretions; they gen
erally remove the pain in tne side and shoulder, and
the yellowness of the complexion, in a very short
time, and will accomplish all and even more than is
ever represented to be effected by mercury or calo
mel in any form. They act gently upon the bowels,
and operate ouly as a very mild purgative, but at the
same time they give tone and strength to the general
system. Price 26 cents.
For the Gravel, and all Affections of the Kidneys,
or difficulty in voiding Urine, attended with heat and
scalding. They will also be found a veir valuable
remedy in Flnor Albus. or Whites, and Gonorrhoea.
They are also inestimable in syphilitic or venereal
complaints, in Nephritis, or inflammation of the Kid
neys, in Cystitis, or Inflammation of the Bladder, in
Hematuria, or bloody urine, and all other diseases of
the Urinary apparatus, however severe and painftil.
A better rvmeoy for these complaints is not known.
Price 91.
This Emetic exerts a very salutary influence ovsv
the animal economy, and removes diseases when
other remedies fail.
The stomach is coated frequently with a viscid,
tenacious fluid, which prevents the action of purga
tives and other agents; in this manner the functions
of thro primary and important organ are so deranged
that nothing will act beneficially on its living fibre;
Cstbartics pass through it and the bowels witiiout
r? moving any morbid accumulation, or rssioringja
healthy tone to these ports.
This emetic, from its pecaliar combination, has a
three-fold efi'oct upon the system. When any morbid
affection depends upon, or is connected with, over
distension of the stomach, or the presence of acrid or
indigestible substances, vomiting gives speedy relief.
8. It not only thus dislodges from the stomach for
eign and deleterious agents, but it produces a new
action, nnd thus changes the secretions by its stimu
lating effects on the stomach, lungs, liver, 4c.

These Pills are very effiosciona in avsry case of
Rheumstiam, whether acuta or chronic; and I sm
sa.li a tied, from my own observation of their great
efficacy in the wont and most obatinate cases, that
they are not surpassed, if they are indeed equalled,
by any other pills of the kind in existence; they at
tenuate viscid humors, remove obstructions, regulate
the system, purify the blood, and thus cure the com
plaint The Rheumatic Liquid used with the Pills,
to bathe the parts affected, will very much facilitate
the cure. When the case is very obstinate, and does
not yield readily to the above medicines, a Syrup
made from the Alterative Powder, (which can be ob
tained at the same place with the Pills and Rheuma
tic Liquid,) muet be taken aooording to directions
accompanying it; bnt in most instances the Pills
alone, or the rills and Liquid, will remove the com
plaint in a short time. Price 60 cents.
This preparation has been fonnd On invaluable
remedy fjr the Hemorrhoids, or Piles. It is given
internally, to correct a faulty state of the bil'ary or
digestive organs, which produces oostiveness, or a
derangement of the bowels, and consequently the
Most of the remedies now in use for this dangerous
and painful affection, are directed to be applied ex
ternally ; thoy do not remove the cause of the oom
plaint, and can therefore afford only temporary re
lief. Again, the disease ia often beyond the reach o
aid from external applications, au objection to whiph
this remedy is not liable, it being taken internally.
It is perfectly safe, pleasant to take, mild and easy
in its operation, and affords immediate relief.
We have not heard of a single case in which this
mediciue has failed either to produoe speody relief,
or to ours the complaint.
It is equally efficacious in curing both the Blind
and Bleeding Piles. If the bowels are left costive
after the use of this medicine, a little physic may bs
taken to regulate them. Having beep trying the A1U
Healing Ointment in some very bad cases of Piles, I
hesitate not to assure the afflicted that it is a vary
valuable medicine, and an inestimable auxiliary to
the Electuary. I consider it the beat external appli
cation, I have ever known. The Electuary ia an in
ternal remedy, and the Ointment aa an external appli
cation. used in connexion, I doubt not would be ef
fectual in the most obstinate casss, and must surpass
in all instances any other remedies for Piles to be
found. Price $1.
All my medicines are put op under my own
personal supervision, and the public are assured that
they are prepared of the best imported vegetable in
gredients, and can be obtained only at our office, No.
179 South B street, opposite Smithsonian Institution,
where they have done a large snd successful practice
for the last six years, in the treatment of all Chronic
Diseases, and those diseases produced by the Old
School Mineral Physicians, by the indiscriminate use
of Mercury, Arsenic, Antimony, Ac. Happily for
suffering humanity, their practice is so manifestly
Injurious, that it is now gradually on the wane, and
must in a few years sink into oblivion.

I Certificate of Dr. W. Smith, of Pint Hill, Rich I

I Pins Hill, March 4, 1854. I
I Dsar Sia: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in]
I its worst form, for the last five years. Such was my
(condition for twelve months (hat the physicians andl
I all who saw me said I muat die. While in this c<>n-|
Idition, 1 was carried to the watering places in Vir]
I ginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not
I benefited by any water to which I was taken. While
I on my way home, I stopped a week at liuthertordton,
I a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of
I some Chalybeate water in that place. About the last
I of the week I went into a drug store to get some med
I icine for my child and myself. There were several
I of the village physicians in the store, and one of them
I seemed to take some interest in my case, and, after
I asking me some questions, said he had been a dys
I peptic, and had been greatly benefited by the ?se of
I " Hoonond's German flitters," prepared by you, and
I he insisted that I would try the Bitters. He also
I called the next day at my room, and insisted so much
I that I would try them that I asked him to get me
I one boitle. He did it, and I commenced taking it as
I directed, and I was more benefited by it than all the
I water and medicine I had ever token.
I After reaching home, one of my neighbors came to
I me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspeptic.)
I and I gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, whicn
I effected much good iu his case. He has often called
I on me for more of the ...ie kind of medicine, saymgJ
I he was more benefited by it than any other he hadl
I taken, bat I have not been able to get any more fori
I him or myself since. Will you, therefore, please ship |
I me a dozen or more as soon possible. _&jM|

I)rar Sir: Allow me to express to you my sinoere
thanks for vour discovery of a medicine which, to sar
the least of it, has effected a cure that all other med
icines that I have taken have entirely failed to do. |
Hoofland's German Bitters hare cured me of the most
stubborn and aggravated case of the Piles that per- I
haps ever fell to the lot of man. My case is not a
stranger in this community, as I am well known in
this and the surroundiiqt counties, and ean truly,say
that my recovery has astounded all my friends and
relations, as I had tried everything recommended,
and nothing did me any good, until I was prevailed
upon to try the Bitters. Yon ore at liberty to make
anv use of this communication, for the bet efit of the I
afflicted, yon may think proper. I

I have used it constantly in my pmo*Ice tor upwards
of ton reare in all caaes where a good physic and al

it. It is the Physician's Assistant, as well as the safest
family medicine in use. Children drink ? with plea
sure.' It will nut nauseate the weakest stoineeh. It
produces no griping, but operates easily, thoroughly,
and ia sure to eradicate sll imparities from the sys
