Pot shame, myfriend !?renounce this Idle strain' What wouldst thou have a Rood ^rfat man ob tain ' "Wealth, title, dignity, a golden chain, Or heip of cor tes which uls sword hath slain * ?oodnei? and greatness are not means, but ends. Hath he not always treasures, always friends, The good great inaa ? Three treasures,?love, and light, ' And calm thought", equable as Infant's bream; And three fast friends, more fure than dsy or sight,? Himself, hi? Maker, and the Angel Death. [5. T.

The proof* cf its efLcany are so numerous, so well authenticated, and of such peculiar charac ter, that sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to re ceive the proflV?red aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to be a rurt-all, but its range is extensive, because many diseases, apparently unlike, are intimately re lated, and, proceeding from one oause, maybe cured by one remedy. The class of discuses for which the Syrup pro vldes a cure, is precisely that which has so oft?H baffled the highest order of medical skill. The facts are tangible, the witnesses accessible, and ?he saSKy and eflPacy of the Syrup incontrovert iblo. I have analysed the medical preparatloa called the Peruvian Syrup, with reference to the number and kind of active substances contained In It. and the durability of the compound as a phurmaceutl cal article. The metallic, compounds of arsenic, antimony, mercury and zinc are not present, nor Is It possible to detect in It the slightest Indica tion of any metallic and mineral poison Its or ganic constituents do not include opium, or any of the drugs yielding poisonous principles. The constituents, when separated, are not even acrid to the taste, it is a preparation scientifically and skilfully compounded, possessing all the durabil ity of a splrituors tincture, without Its objection able qualities and the aatlvlty of its leading con stituent Is pwerved through tbe Judicious adap tation of its solvent. The point here attained has been frequently and unsuccessfully sought alter by phannaceuflats. Respectfully, A. A. HAYES, M. D.
