IN AGAIN PRESENTING TOTtfE NOTICE ol the public the above remedy, we feel that little apology Is needed. Vast numbers In all sections of the Union are obliged to have recourse to other sources of relief thsn the immediate pre script oa cf their family physician, and as each return of the winter season brings out a host of professedly new specifics, some good, others use less, and many declded!y dangerous, it becomes as much a matter of duty asInt.-rest. believing this to bo a remedy, combining the greatest ad vantages, with the least objections of any otner in us-, to make it ?s extensively known as prac ticable. That such Is Us oha'acter, Is aburdantly proved by the fact, that It has been extensively used the last twenty years with unparnileled suc cess; that Its reputation has continued to spread and 1U sale Increase, with llttie nid from adver tising or published lists of ecr.ificatcs, (which ail know can as easily be had for a worthless preparation as for a meritorious one,) that bv its own Intrinsic merit, with the recommecdat on of persons benefitted by its use, It has pained Its pre?ert popularity; It is not trumpeted to the wo ld as a speed" or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary In pulmonary cases readv at hand, a;.d one has been generally found to aft trd relief where most others have been tried without material benefit As such, it Is recog nised by numbers of our leading physicians, who know Its composition, and have been eye wit nesses of Ps superior eilca<*y, as well as by thou sand" of our most leapectable cltitenis to most of whom reference Is checrfully permitted.
