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 experi- enced 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 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 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 con- dition of the li -er, regulate the bowels, and, by, removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame.
