DE JONGH'S LIGHT BROWN COD LIVER OIL, Prescribed by eminent Medical Men as the most speedy and effectual remedy for CONSUMPTION, BRONCHITIS, ASTHMA, GOUT, RHEUMATISM, SCIATICA, DIABETES, DISEASES OF THE SKIN, NEU RALGIA, RICKETS, INFANTILE WASTING, GENERAL DEBILITY, .AND ALL SCROFULOUS AFFECTIONS, CONTAINS iodine, phosphate of lime, volatile fatty acids—in short, all the most active and essential curative properties—in larger quantities than the Pale Oils manufactured in .Great Britain and Newfoundland, mainly deprived of these by their mode of preparation. The well merited celebrity of Dr. de Jongh's Oil is attested by its extensive use in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Italy, by numerous spontaneous testimonials from eminent mem bers of the faculty and scientific chemists of European reputation, and since its introduction into this country, by the marked confi- dence, as well as great success, with which it has been prescribed by medical practitioners. In many instances where other kinds of Cod Liver Oil have been taken with little or no benefit, it has produced most imme- diate relief, arrested disease, and restored health. SELECT MEDICAL OPINIONS:— A. B. GRANVILLE, ESQ., M.D., F.R.S., Author of The Spas of Germany" The Spas of England," On Sudden Death," &c &c Dr. Granville has used Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil extensively in his practice, and has found it not only effica- cious, but uniform in its qualities. He believes it to be preferable in many respects to Oils sold without the guarantee of such an authority as De Jongh. DR. GRANVILLE HAS FOUND THAT THIS PARTICULAR KIND PRODUCES THE DESIRED EFFECT IX A SHORTER TIME THAN OTHERS, AND THAT IT DOES NOT CAUSE THE NAUSEA AND INDIGESTION TOO OFTEX CONSEQUENT ON THE ADMINISTRA- TION OF THE PALE NEWFOUNDLAND OILS. The Oil being, more- over, much more palatable, Dr. Granville's patients have them- selves expressed a preference for Dr. de Jongh's Li"lit-Brown Cod Liver Oil. ° CHARLES COWAN, Esq, M.D.,i.L.R C S.E Senior Physician to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Consulting Phy- sician to the Beading Dispensary, Translator of Louis on Phthisis," d-c. Dr. Cowan is glad to find that the Profession has some rea- sonable guarantee for a .genuine, article. The material now sold vanes in almost every establishment where it is purchased and a tendency to prefer a colourless and tasteless Oil, if not coun- teracted, will ultimately jeopardize the reputation of an un- questionably valuable addition to the Materia Medica. Dr Cowan wishes Dr.. DE JOXGU every success in his meritorious undertaking.' C. RADCLYFFE HALL, ESQ., MD, F.R.C.P.E., Physician to the Torquay Hospital for Consumption, Torquay, Author of Essays on Pulmonary Tubercle," &c. "I have no hesitation in saying that J generally prefer your Cod Liver Oil for the following reasons:—I have found it to agree better with the digestive organs, especially in those pa- tients who consider themselves to be bilious; it seldom causes r nausea or eructation; it is more palatable to most patients than the other kinds of Cod Liver Oil; it is stronger, and consequently a smaller dose is sufficient." Sold ONLY in IMPERIAL Half-pints, 2s. 6d.; Pints, 4s. 9d Quarts, 9s., capsuled, and labelled with DR. DE JONGH'S Stamp and Signature, WITHOUT WHICH NONE ARE GENUINE, by ANSAR, HARFORD, and CO., sole British Consignees, 77, Strand London, W.C.: and by many respectable Chemists and Druggists 0" Proposed substitutions of other kinds of Cod Liver Oil should be strenuously resisted, as they proceed from interested motives, and will result in disappointment to the purchaser. 11616 Wtm.
