The proof* of Its t-fflcacy are so numerous, so well au theis ilea ted, ai>d of such peculiar charac ter, thatKufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to re ceive tb? proffered aid. The Peruvian Syrup dee* not pirfcss to be a mrf-all, but Its range is e*ten?lv*?, because many diseases, apparently unlike, are intimately re lated, and, proceeding from one cause, may be cured by one remedy The ciass of diseases for which the Syrup pro vides a cure, Is precisely that which h.-fs ?ooft? n battled the highest order of medical skill The facts are tangible, the witnesses accessible, and 'be safety and efficacy of the Syrup Incontrovert ible. m I have analysed the medloal preparation 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 pharmaceuti cal article. The metallic compounds of arsenic, antimony, merottry and alnc are not ptesent, noi 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 tl?e drugs yielding poisonous principles. The constituents, when separated, are not even acrid to the taste. It is a preps ration scientifically and skilfully compounded, po*sesalng all the durabil ity of a splrltuors tincture, without Its objection able qualities and the activity of its leading con stituent is preserved through the judicious adap tation of Its solvent. The point here attained hai been frequently and unsuccessfully sought aftei by pharmaceutists. Respectfully, A. A. HAYES, M. D.

R'OWLLL. ?eo?getown, AgenU. Je 7-?m AYER'S PILLa FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OP A FAMILY PHYSIC. INHERE HAS LONG EXISTED A PUBLIC A demand for an effective Purgative Pill which could be relied on as sure and }?erfeetlv safe in its operation. This has been firenared to meet that demand, and an extensive ftlal of its virtues has conclusively shown with what success it accom plishes the purpose designed It is easy to make a physical Pill, bnt not so easy to make the best of all Pt7/<?on* which should have none of the objections, but all the advantages of every other riiis Las been attempted here^and with what sue. 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 Irritating to the bowels This is not Many of them produce so much griping pair, and revulsion in the system as to more than counterbalance the coed to be derived from them. These Pills produce no Irritation or pain, unless it arises from a previously existing obstruction or derangement in tho bowels Being purely vege table, no harm can arise from their use in any quantity; but It Is better than any medicine should be taken Judlclously Minute directions for their use in the several diseases to which they are ap plicable are given on the box. Among tbe com plaints which have been speedily cured by there we may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Appetite, Llstlessaess. irritability, B llous Headache, Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain In the Side and Loins, for In truth, nlltheseare bit the consequenoe of diseased action of the liver. As an aperient, they afford prompt and sure relief in Costliness, Piles, Colic. Dysentery, Humors, Scrofula and Scurvy, Colds, with sore ness of the b^dy, Ulcers aiid Impurity cf the blood: in short any and every case where a purca tlve is required. They have also produced some singularly suc cessful cures in Rheumatism.Gout. Dropsy, Grav el, Erysipelas, Palpitation of the Heart. Pains in the Back, Stomach and Side. They should be freely taken In the spring of the year, to purify the blood and prepare the eystem ror tbe change of seasons. An occasional dose stimulates the atomarh into healthy action, and restores the appe tite and yl%nr. They purify tbe blood, and by their stimulant action on the circulatory system, renovate the strength of the bedy, and restore the wasted or diseased energies of the whole organ ism. Hence an occasional dose is advantageous even though no serious demngement exists: bat unnecessary dosing should never be carried too far, as every purgative medicine reduces the strength, when taken to excess. The thousand cases in which a phyaic is required cannutbe enu merated here, but they suggest themselves to the reason of every body; ana It is confidently be lleved this pill will answer a better purpose than anything which has hitherto been available to mankind When their virtues are once known the public will no longer doubt what remedy te employ when in need of a cathartic medirine. Uelne sugar wrapped they are pleasant to take, nnd being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from their use In any quantity. For minute directions see the wrapper on the Box. Faaraaan ay DR. JAMK8 C.
