The Cheapest, Purest and Best Family
Medicine in the Worldl
For DYSPEPSIA CONSTIPATION Jaundice,
Bilious altacks, SICk HEADACHE, Colic, Depres
ion of Spirits, SOUR STOMACH, Heartburn, etc.
This unrivaled remedy is wanranted not to contain
a single particle of MtRcuYv, or any mineral substance,
containing those Southern Roots and Herbs which an
all-wise Providence has placed in countries where
Liver Diseases most prevail. It will cure all
Diseases caused by Derangement of the
Liver and Bowels.
'. The SYMPTOMS of Liver Complaint are a bitter
or bad taste in the mouth; Pain in the Back, Sides or
Joints, often mistaken for Rheumatism: Sour
Stomach; Loss of Appetite; Bowels alternately
costive and lax; Headache; Loss of Memory, with a
painful sensation of having failed to do something
which aught to have been done; Debility; Low
Spirits; a thick, yellow appearance of the Skin and
]yes; a dry Cough, often mistaken for Consumption.
Sometimes many of these symptoms attend the
disease, at others very few; but the LIVER, the largest
organ in the body, is generally the seat of the disease,
and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretch
edness and DEATH will ensue.
The following highly-esteemed persons attest to the
virtues of SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR: Gen. W. S.
Holt, Pres. Ga. S. W. R. R. Co.; Rev. J. R. Felder,
Perry, Ga.; Col. E. K. Sparks, Albany, Ga.; C. Master
sos, Esq.,Sheriff Bibb Co.,Ga.: J. A. Butts, Bainbridge,
Ga.; Rev. J. W. Burke, Macon, Ga.; Virgil Powers,
Supt. Ga. S. W. R. R.; Hon. Alexander H. Stephens.
We have tested its virtues personally, and know
that for Dyspepsia, Biliousness and Throbbing Head
ache, it is the best medicine the world ever saw. We
have tried forty other remedies before Simmons Liver
Regulator, and none of them gave us more than tem
porary relief; the Regulator not only relieved, but cured
