The Champion Liver & Stomach PILLS. THESE PILLS are compounded from the < recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives— knowing their excellent properties by experience — has been induced.to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach, and derangements of the liver, ever prepared. Jt is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race, arise from a disordered stomach, and irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple mala. dies, become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid condition of the liver, regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame.

EFFICIENCY OF ARTIFICIAL TEETH. The inventions of Messrs.

STOPPINGS FOR TEETH. More Teeth are sacrificed by the use of injurious Stop. pings, having high sounding names, than by any other process. These stoppings invariably contain quicksilver or some other injurious substance, which slowly but surely undermines the tooth it was intended to save.
