From an inequality in the viaual range of my eyea, I have heretofore found great difficulty in getting glaaaes of the proper focal distance. It affords me pleasure to state that,by the aid of your optometer, this difficulty has been happi 1* obviated, so that the glasses you furnished me are decidedly the Lest adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet used.

From natural defects and the unequal range of iny eyes, I have l?een compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months since Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially for me, which I liave found to serve me perfectly.

KtvatDY. of R ox bury, has discovered in one of our common pasture weeds a remedy that curoa EVICKY KIND Of HCMOk, from The worst Scrofula down to a common Pimple. He has tried it in over eleven hundred cases, and never failed except in two cases, both Thunder Hu mor. He has now in his possession over one hundred certificates of its value, all within twenty miles of Boston. _ Two bottles are warranted to cure a nursing Bore Mouth. . One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of Pnnples on the Face. Two or three Itottles will dear the system of Biles. Two bottles are warranted to euro the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind of Ery sipelas. One or two bottles are warrauted to euro all Hu mor in the Eves. Two bottles are warranted hi cure Running of the Ears and Blotches among the Hair. Four to six bottles are warrauted to euro oorrupt and running Ulcers. One bottfe will cut* Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. Two or three bottles are warranted to euro the worst kind of Ringworm. Two or three bottles are warranted to our* the most most desperate case of Hheumatism. Throe to four bottles are warrauted to cure SaJt rheura. Five to eight bottle* will cure the worst case of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity i? taken. Nothing looks so improtable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicine* of the day, aa that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone ws lis. should cure every humonnth* system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you nave a humor, it has to start. There are no IFSnor ANUS, hums nor ha's about it suiting some cases, hutlnot yours. I peddled over a thousand bottles ofit in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it in every case. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children a year old, to old people of sixty. 1 have seen poor, puny. wormy-looEing children, whose flesh was ?oft and flabby, restored to * perfect state of health by one I ottle. To those who are subject to a sick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had ?>een costive for years, and havo been regulated by it. Where the l?ody is sound it works quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of nature.it will cause very singular feelings, but vou must not be alarmed: th?v always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a f>ad re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a uew person. I heard some of the most extravagant enoomiuins of it that ever man listened to. Iu inv own practice I always kept it strictly for hu mors?nut since its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues havo boon found in it that 1 never suspected. Several casesof epileptic fits?a disease which waa always considered incurable, have t>een cured by a few bottles. L), what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in all cases of that awful malady ? there are but few who have seen more of it than I have. I know of several casesof Dropsy, all of them aged people cured by it. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma. Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side, Diseases of the Spine, and particularly in Disease* of the Kidney s, & c., the discovery has done more good than any medicine ever known.
