In asain presenting to the uotice of the public the atiove remedy, we feel tliat little apology is needed. Vast numbeis mail sections of tho I niou ure obliged to have recourse to other sourocs of relief than the immediate prescription of their family physician, aud as each return of the winter seasou brings out a host of professedly new specifics, some good, others use less, and many decidedly dangerous, it becomes as much a matter of duty as interest, believing this to be a remedy, combining the greatest advantages, with the least objections of any other in use. to make it as extensively known as practicable. That such is its character, is abundantly proved by the fact, that it lias been extensively used the last twenty year* with unparalleled success ; that its reputation lias continued to spread and its rale increase, with little aid from advertising or published lists of cer tificates, (which all know can as easily be had for a worthless preparation as lor a meritorious one.) that by its own intrinsic merit, with the reoommeudat-i<>u of persons Iteiiefited by its use, it has gained its pre sent popularity ; it is not trumpeted to the world as a specific or cure all. but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary cases, ready at hand, and one that has been generally found to atiord relief where most others have I teen tried without material t?en< fit. As such, it is recognised by numlters of our leading physicians, who know its composition, aud have been eye witnesses of its superior elftcacy. as weil as by thousands of our most respectable cilircns, to most of whom reference is cheerfully permitted.
