A certain Cure for Ague, Fever,
and Dyspepsia,
IV our summer and fall months many sections of our
country are prostrated by BILLIOI'B 1 EVER and
AGI.'E and I'El EU.— It has been our particular study to
find out some remedy to stop this dreadful scourge, and
ihuik, in this TONIC we have effected this great object
It is also xx e think the very best remedy in Dyspep-ia,
and if our directions are followed, will not fail to effect
a cure.
11l a letter dated, May 23d, 1819, our Agent, Mr. El-as
Raub.of Wrightaville, York county, Pa.,says I have
never known any remedy for Fever and Ague equal to
your invaluable National Tonic. It has given universal
satisfaction, and has cured cases of Ague of years atand
, ing, and after the failure of all other medicines made use
of. Mr. Ilenry Bcveraon,of the same place, says in his
certificate, dated 22.1 .March, 1~ 19, ' I applied to a number
; of Physicians, and also used a variety of the most popu
lar Ague Mixtures at different times, but all without the
desired effect; no perman *nt cure having been afforded.
I was at length induced, at the recommendation of your
worthy Agent at this place, to try a b.dtle of your Na
tional Tonic, and to my great satisfaction,before 1 had
1 used half of it, I felt completely cured, though I contin
ued the use of it till 1 had taken txvo bottles.' In a joint
certificate from Messrs. Miles Hoke, William Blackson,
and James D. Brown, of the same place, they say—'Hav
ing tried nearly all the remedies within our reach with
out success, we at last purchased some of your .Yalional
1 Tame, which has completely cured us. We, therefore,
cheerfully recommend it to the notice of all persons at*
I dieted with that terrible disease as the best remedy yet

r PIIE SPIGEI.IA, says a work of highest authority,
j -L stands a? the head of the lis! of Anthelmintics or fVortr
.'.'(jo ints. It is adapted to awi ier range of cases, and
| to a greater variety of constitutions and states of the
constitution, than any other. Hut prepared as it cotn
i mi.rily is, in tlie form of tea, it can seldom be given to
children in suliicient doses. In Harris, Turner Ati tle's
I Co:u,K>u.'id Syrup, it is so concentrated that the dose is
very small, so combined as to ensure a purgative opera
tion, and so palatable as to be taken, not only ilh ea.-e,
but with positive pleasure.
Tlie precise composition of this syrup and the mode of
pr paring it, are the result of a series of experiments
continued for years. H> f.tre off. ring it for sale, it was
subjected to the lest of experience in the hands of emi
nent physicians, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, who have
recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ it
in their practice. In addition to this evidence of its mer
its, we offer the following, selected from a number of un
solicited testimonials.
let. A distinguished physician of Virginia, of rnuth
experience, writes of it thus :
"I should hive written before this, but felt disposed
first to try the efficacy of your Vermifuge. 1 have used
more than half the quantity received,and the experiment
has been most successful. I really behtr' that it posies
sen adcunteii'tt over any other V'ermifupe I hare teer used.
Independent of the smatlncss nl" the dose, and the plea,
smtness of the syrup (great advantages in dosing chil
dren) the advantage of administering it und-r a variety
of circumstance, enhances its value; indeed there is
scarcely a condition of the system in which it may not
be administered Yours, Ac."
2 1. A respectable physician of Lebanon county, in this
; state, writes —
" I have been in the habitnf prescribing your Compound
Syrup of Spigelia for some time past, and have found it
I an excellent worm medicine, particularly forchildrcn. —
Please forw ird per bearer 2 do/ bodies —Yours. Ac."

had previously sold the syrup, writ s:

, Philadelphia, st .t. d, that some time since he had been ap
l ple dtoby a cu turner for a vial of —— 's Vei
? diffuse for his son. Not having the article asked for, he
advised a trial of Harris, Turner A Hale's Compound
1 .Syrup of Spigelia and gave him a. part of a bottle which j
; was all that remained in the store. A day or two after
this the gentleman returning to the store, expressed his i
| surprise and delight at the effect of the Syrup, declaring
it had expelled M a worms and entirely relieved his son.
! The merchant added an expression of his great regret that \
he had not had on h.india bottle of the Syrup at the ti ~e j

Dear sir—lt is with feelings of pleasure I communicate
to you the sanative effects (and in a short time) of your
invaluable 11 .(-fl uid's celebrated German Bitters, upon

went out 1 had to very careful of myself; since that time
I hive had several attacks of the same dt case, and your

t ret day .a. My next door neighbor, Mr. JOHN DlEilL,
last spring, had a long and serious spell of Jaundice; he
had it some time before 1 knew it; he was confined to his
bed. As soon as 1 heard of hia condition I called to see
trim and told him of th - effect your Bitters had upon me
in the same disease. He immediately sent for ■ bottle,
