Brushing the crumbs from the pan try .Bran tins for eggs at the barn.

T 1HERK HAS LONG EXISTED A PUBLIC demand foi an effective Purgative Fill whict could be relied on as sure and perfectly safe in it* operation. This has beeu prepared to meet tha* demand, and an extensive trial of Its virtues ha> conclusively shown with what success it accom pilches the purpose designed It is easy to make a physical Pill, but not so easy to make the best of al! Pill*?one which should have none of thf objections, bat all the advantages of every other, riiis has been attempted here, and with what suc cess we would respectfully submit to the public decision. It has been unfortunate for the patient hitherto that almost every purgative medicine is acrimonious and ir.Hating to the bowels. This is not. Many of them produce so much griping pain and revulsion in the system as to more than counterbalance the good to be derived from them i These Pills produce no lrrl'ation or pain, unless it arises from a pretlotisly existing obstruction or derangement in the bowels Being purely vege table, no harm can arise from their use in aay quantity; but it is better than any medicine should be taken judiciously. Minute directions for theii use in the several diseases to which they are ap plicable are ?lven on the box. Among the com plaints which have been speedily cured by therr, we may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Los* of Appetite, Listlessness, Irritability, B lious Headache, Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side and Loins, for in truth, allthese art but the consequence of diseased action of the ? f Tm .^8 an ?P?rientj they afford prompt and sure relief In Costiveness. Piles, Colic, Dysentery', Humors, Scrofula and Scurvy, Colds, with sore ness of the bdy, Ulcers and impurity of thi blood: in short any and every case where a purca tlve is required. * They have aWo produced some singularly suc cessful cures in Rheumatlsm.Gout,Dropsy, Grav i' kjry8'0*'*8) Palpitation of the Heart, Pains it the Back, Stomach and Side. They should be frce.y taken in the spring of the year, to purify the blood and prepare the system for the changt of seasons. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach Into healthy action, and restores the appe vl.Kor They purify the blood, and oi tnotr stimulant action on the circulatory system renovate the strength of the body, and restore tht wasted or diseased energies of the whole organ ism. Hence an occasional dose Is advantageous even though no serious derangement exists: bui unnecessary dosing should never be carried tot far, as every purgative medicine reduces tt* strength, when taken to excess The thousand cases in which a physic is required cannot be enu meratcd here, but they suggest themselves to the reason of every body; and It is confidently be lieved this pill will answer a better purpose than anything which has hitherto been available to mankind When their virtues are once knowi. the public will nolonger doubt what remedy to employ when in need of a cathartic medicine. Being sugar wrapped they are pleasant to take and being purely vegetable, no harm can aris, from their use In any quantity. Box?r m*nute directions bcc the wrapper on the PREPARED BT DR. JAMES C.
