Enttrtd nrecrding to Act of Con^nns, A D IH37, IN AUA1N PRESENTING TO THE NOTICE of 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 thin the immediate pre script oa of 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 decidedly dangerous, it b^comei as much a matter of du'tv as interest, believing this to be a remedy, combining the greatest ad vantages, with the least obje tionsof any otnei In use, :o mike It as extensively known as prac ticable. That such is Its character, Is abundantly proved by the fact, that It has been extensively j us:-d the last twenty years with unparalleled suc cess ; that its reputation has continued to spread and its sale Increase, with little aid from adver tlsing or published lists of certificates, (which I all know can as easily be had for a worthies* preparation as for a meritorious one,) that by ltj ' own intr.nslc merit, with the recommendation ol f persons benefitted bv its use, it has gained it? present popularity; it is not trumpeted to tht wo'ld as a sprclfl'- or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary cases, read) > at hand, and one that has been generally fount) ? to afford relief where most others have been tried ? without material ?>eneflt As such, it is recog nised by numbers of our leading physicians, whe t know Its composition, and have been eye wit ' nesses of its superior efhra v, as well as by thou sands of our most respectable citizens, to most ol ' whom reference is cheerfully permitted.
