The great demand for this truly valuable Syrup is a sufficient proof of its efficacy, and renders it unnecessary for the proprietor to urge its numerous advantages; suffice it to say that it is composed af the active properties of herbs, roots, and balsams, in a concentrated form, and possesses great soothing and healing properties.

THESE PILLS are compounded from the T 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 arge). 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 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 tne bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame.
