Th-e Champion liver & Stomach PILLS- HpHESE 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. It 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 illaesses. 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. TESTIMONIALS. Usk, January 28th, 1865. gIR i have been in the habit of taking the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH FILLS for some years, and I can safety say they are the best medicine for Stomach Complaints that I have ever taken; and previously to their becoming known to me I had ti i<-<i a great number of different kinds. They never fail m o-ivin" me instant relief, and having received so much benetn from "their use, I think it but right that I should recommend them, as I do whenever I have opportumty. WHITEFIELD_ Castle Farm, Gwebelog, near Usk, March 26th, 1864. SIR,-I am glad to be able to bear testimony to the great efficacy of the CHAMPION LIVER AND. STOMACH FILLS. Pre- viously to my being recommended to try them, I suffered much from Asthma, but since I have been in the habit of taking these pills, when I find an attack coming on I have only to take ene dose to obtain certain and speedy relief, and by repeating the dose two or three times I am restored to my usual health. I am sure that these pills have saved me a vast amount of suffering, and I therefore, with pleasure, give you permission to make what me you like of this testimonial, as, if it should be the means of inducing any persons afllicted as I have been to try the medicine, 1 shall feel ttiat I have done them great service. To Mr. CLARK, Usk. THOMAS PRICE. Penarth, near Cardiff, 24th October, 1864. Mr CLARK, Usk— SIB,— I enclose 28 stamps, and shall be obliged if you will send me two boxes of the CHAMPION LIVER PILLS. You will think I am consuming a great quantity of them from the number of boxes you have sent me; but the fact is, since I have been in this neighbourhood, I have recommended the pills to several persons here who suffer from biliousness, like myself, and they all agree that they never took av^tliin^ that did them so much good. 1 tni"* pills were sold in this neighbourhood, a great many more people would take to them, because they would be sure: to_recommend themselves. HENRY KLLIa. Gwehelog, near Usk, December, 1859. SiK—After suffering for several years from acute pains In my side, back, chest, and stomach, and after calling in several medical men, and trying every remedy, I still suffered severely fron1 the complaints. At length I was induced to try the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH PILLS, sold by you^ The first box eave me great relief. I then purchased a second box, and it completely removed my complaint, and I am now in .perfect health Having received so much benefit from these piHs mvself, I think that I am only doing a service to the public in recommending them. JOHN ROBEltiJs. To Mr. CLARK, Bookseller. Usk. Pontypool, January 20th, I860. gjK —po!- some years I suffered very much from an affection of the Liver. The medical men to wnom I applied gave me pills which removed the complaint for a short time, but it returned as bad as after ever a wtek or ten days. Hearing of the CHAMPION PILLS I resolved to try ttiem, and I am happy to say, that after takni" a few doses, 1. felt much better, and it is now three months since [ have experienced any return of my old O^mplaint. If I have the headache, or pain in the side or shoufders, I take a couple of the CHAMPION PILLS at night, and I feel all right the day. WM. 5, Setile's Buildings, New Swindon, Feb. 24, 1863. SIP—I am wishful to inform you of the great benefit I have found from taking the CHAMPION PILLS. From my childhood I have been much troubled with indigestion, which caused me great Buffering, and I was, never many days without it, until a Meud pave me a few of these pills, which is the only medicine thai gives me relief.
