pleasure in informing tho public generally tlmt
we have received,and will keep constantly up (luring
the season, a full supply of “ WHI I’E SULPHUR
WATER,” from the celebrated Spring in Green
brier County, Va.
This wafer, which has been for several years
transported from the White Sulphur Springs, in
Greenbrier County, in this State, enjoys great repu
tation throughout the United Stated, and is now
very generally used, and its virtues extolled as a
remedial agent in bilious di-cases incident to a
warm climate, dyspepsia, costiveness, jaundice,
chronic rheumatism, gout, dropsy, in affections of
the breast occasioned by disease of the stomach or
liver, neuralgia, and nervous diseases in general ;
chronic inflamation of the kidneys and bladder,
atul urethra ; piles, scrofula and eruptions, or other
affections of the skin ; ill-conditioned ulcers, mer
curial diseases, tic. &e., all of which is attested by
; the highest names in the medical profession, and
many others who have for years used this water,
both at and when removed from the fountain.

and lasting Tonic. A general view of the analysts
of this wafer, will show that it stands the first in
rank of the highly concentrated " Chalybeate*,”—
consequently it acts as a Tonic, increasing the
strenjftii of the system, raising the force of eircu
lation, giving tone to the degislive organs, aug
menting th e muscular vigour, and promoting the
excretions ; it is of course, advantageously employed
in those disease* in which Iron is principally used,
such as Amenorrhea, Chloroein, some states of Me
norfhugUt, f .'urnrrhea, Dr/epepeia, Scrofula and ca
rious form* of Chronic DrhilUti.
