THE OHAMPION" Liver and Stomach Pills. T'HESE PILLS are compounded from the -L recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives- knowing their excellent properties bv 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 j I most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach. j and derangements of the liver, ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that roost of the diseases incident to the humau race, arise from a disordered stomach, and irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable j remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple mala- i dt&a, beeotne Mnuus ftlae&scs. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health, these I ] gills are confidently and earnestly recommended. T 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. Sold in Boxes (with directions for use) ls.lM. and 7^d, each. (A Saving by taking the Large Size). Sold Wholesale by Messrs. BAIICLAY & SON, LONDON and lietail by all Medicine Vendors.
