These Pil!s 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 from 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 's incident to the human race arise from a disordered stomach, and an irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple maladies become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the bles- sings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the ood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid condition of the .Ii'TH. regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. Sold in boxes (with directions for use) 18.1 ld. and 711 cl. each (a saving by taking the larger size). Sold Wholesale by Messrs. Barclay and Son, London, and Retail by all Medicine Vendors.

Being a purely vegetable preparation, they may be taken at any time by either sex without fear of danger. Acting upon the bowels mildly, yet effectually, by their fine tonic, aromatic, and aperient properties, they re- move all oppressive accumulations, regulate the secre- tions of the liver and bowels, strengthen the stomach, and purify the hlood. prepared solely by JOIIN KAYE) Esq, of Prospect Hal), Woodford, Essex.
