There has long existed a public demand fox an effect ve Purgative Pill which could be relied on as sure and perfectly safe In Its operation. This has been prepared to meet that demand, and an extensive trial of its virtues has conclusively shown with what success it accom pllshes the purpose designed. It Is easy to make a physical Pill, but not so easv to make the best of all Pill??one which should have none of the objections, but all the advantages of every other. This 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 putative medicine Is acrimonious and lr.ltating to the bowela. This Is not Many of them produce so much griping pain and revulsion In the system as to more than counterbalance the pood to t>e derived from them These Ptllt produce no irritation or pain, unless It arises from a preriously existing obstruction or derangement in the bowels Being purely vege table, no harm can arise from their use In anv quantity; but It Is better than any medicine should be taken Judiciously. Minute directions for their use In the several diseases to which they are ap plicable are given on the box. Among the com plaints whlcn have been Rpeedlly cured by them we may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Appetite, Llstlessness, Irritability, B llous Headache, Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Fain In the Side and Loins, for in truth, all these are but the consequence of diseased action of the liver. As an aperient, they afford prompt and sure relief In Costlveness. Plies, Colic, Dysentery, Humors. Srrofnla and Scurvy, Colds, with sore nes^ of the b dy, Ulcer* and Impurity of the blood: In short any and every case where a pnrga tlve is required. They have also produced some singularly suc cessful cures In Rheuruatlsm.Gout.Dropsy, 6rav el, Erysl .relns, Palpitation of the Heart. Pains la the Back, Stomach and Side. They should be fteely taken In the spring of the Tear, to purify the blood and prepare the system for the change of seasons. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach Into healthy action, and restores the appe tite and vigor.
