SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY3.UP Sea Weed Tonic and Mandbake Piixs. These medicines have undoubtedly performed more cures of Consumption than any other remedy known to the American public. They are compounded of vegetable ingredients, and contain nothing which can be injurious to the human constitution. Other remedies advertised as cures for Consumption, probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dan gerous drug in all cases,' and if taken freely by con sumptive patients, it mnst do great injury; for its tendency is to confine the morbid matter in the system, which, of course, must make a cure impos sible. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is warranted not to contain a particle of opium; it Is composed of powerful but harmless herbs, which act on the lungs, liver, stomach and blood, and thus corrects all morbid secretions, and expel all the diseased matter from the bod . Thise arc the only means by which Consumption can be cured, and as Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the only medicines which ope rate in this way, it is obvious that the arc the only genuine cure for Pulmonary Consumption. Each bottle of this invaluable medicine is accompanied by full directions. Dr. Schenck is professionally at his principal office, corner Mlxth and Arch Sts.
