Tt':"
lias been prepared to
11 list: unti l, and an extensive trial
ol it's virtues has conclusively shown with
what siiKce.es it accomplishes tlh purpose
designed. 11 is easy to mak a Physical
1MI but not so easy to inakc thvi Ivst ol"
all Pills—one which should hi venous of
the objections, but all th- advantages of
every oilier. This has been attempted
here, and with what success 'we would
respectfully submit to the public decision.
It has been unfortunate for the patient
hitherto that almost every pur^jative msd
icine is a rimonious and irritating lo tbe
bowels. This is not. Many of thjm pro
duce so much griping pain an! rovulsk»ii
in thesysterti as to more thin counterbal
ance ihe good to bederivetl from th:m.—
These Pills produce uo irritation or pain,
unless it arises from a previously existing
obstruction or derangement in fh. botveb.
Being purely vegetable, 110 bur at can arise
from their use iu any quantity b.it it ia
better lliat a»y medicine slnuld b^ taken
judiciously. Minute directioas for thair
use in the several diseases to which thsy
are applicable are given 011 thi box.
A-
n:ong ihe complaints whijli Juve baen
speedily cured by them we nuy mention
Liver Complaint, iu its various fonnj of
Jaundice, Imligeslion, Languor an I LO 3
of Appetite, Lisilessness, Irritability, Bil
ious Headache, Bilious Fer«»r, Ferer and
Ague, Pain in the Side and Ljtns, lor iu
truth, all these are but tn. cotii'qu iuojof
diseased acfion of the Liver. As an ape
lient, they all'ord prompt and sure rdbf
in Cosliveness, Piles, Colic, Drse.itery,
Humors, Scrofula and Scurvy, Colds, with
soreness of the body, Ulcers and impurity
^1 the blood, i:i short, any a id everv ease
where a purgative is required. Th ty bar,-'
also produced some singularly
suctx-ssfuk
cures in Kheuuutism. Gout, Droinicy,
Gravel, Erjoipelas, Palpiutioa of thj
Heart, I aius iu tlit- Back. Stonnch and
Side. They should be freely taken in the
Spring ol the year, to purify til- blood and
prepare the system for a change ofseasoos.
A11 occasional dose stimulates the SIJBI
ath into healthy action, and restores tile
appetite and vigor. They purify the blood,
and by their stimulant action on tlu cir
culatory system, r,-novate tV stren^tui®!
the body, and restore the wasted cr Jig-'
eased energies of the whole organism.-*—
Hence an occasional dose is advantageous
even though 110 serious derin^ematU ex
ists but unnecessary do3ing should Ujvor
|e carried too tar, as every purgative m*l
Kine reduces the strength, wh-u taken to
excess. The thousand cas.es in which phv
«ic is required cannot be enumerated here,
but they suggest themselves to tike reag»u
of every body and it is confi bedtly believad
this pill will answer a better purpose than
anything which has hitherto been available
to /uaukiud. When their virtues an* ouce
known the public will no longer doubt
w hat remedjr to employ when in need of a
Citthartic medicine.
Being sugar wrapped they are piaaaint
to take, and beiug purely vegetable, uo
harm can arise from tlieir use iu any qiuttt
tity. For minute directions,sa the wrap
