Jf-Our readers are referred to the adver
tisement of "Old Dick" to be found in another
column. He has on hand a Hill supply of Ready
Made Clothing which he is anxious to sell on
liberal terms, and if a neighbour should
need a warm coat for the winter, lie may
find "just the thing" at "Old Dick's."
Oar friends may rest assured that though
quite rusty, he is a very straight up and

chills and fever, and fever and ague of the
West and South but in all diseases of de
bility, weak stomach, indigestion, loss of
appetite, impurity of the blood, and all dis
eases prevalent in a western, and southern
climate. Their great power consists in
their peculiar effect upon all the organs of
the system, and the rapid formation of new
and rich . blood which they produce. In
this lies the great secret of their success.
They are mild and pleasant in their action
but searching and permanent in their ef
fect penetrating the remotest recesses of
the system by their ready absorption fnto
the blood, thereby infusing a new supply of
vitality and nervous power into all the ma
chinery of life. The extensive popularity
they have acquired all over the West and
South ensures safes of at least
60,000 Boxes per Month,
And we find it difficult with our large force
of hands, and the late improvements in ma
chinery wilich we have adopted, to manu
facture them fast enough to supply the de
mand in thirteen Western and southern
States! One large manufactory is con
stantly engaged in preparing the various
concentrated extracts of which they are
composed. From the best information we
can obtain from our 8,000 selling agents,
and hosts of attentive correspondents in all
parts of the country, our medicine cures,
per month, not less than 10,000 cases of fe
ver and ague, one thousand of which have
resisted all other treatment;
4,500 cases of bilious fever,
5,300 do of weaknes and general debility;
do of various chronic diseases,
do of weak stomach & to"ss of appetite,
do ol dyspepsia,
do of rheumatism,
do of female complaints,
do of ague cake, or enlarged spleen;
do of liver complaint,
do tt scarlet fever,
do of typhus fever,
do nutrid sore throat.
This must appear almost incredible, but the'
numerous letters from physicians, agents, and
those who use lh5 medicine, from all the Wes
tern and Southwestern States, satisfy us that this
is a moderate eslinate, and that our medicine isi
rapidly takins the place of the various sugar
coated counterfeits which are afloat; and the nu-
