4 standee! the beast of thelist of Anthelmintiea or ll'arm
Medicines, it is adapted to a wider range of cases, and
to a greater variety of constitutions and states of the .
constitution, than any other. But prepared as it com
monly is, in the form of tea, it can seldom be given to
children in sufficient doses. In Harris, Turner A Hale's
Compound 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 with ease, j
hut with positive pleasure.
The precise composition of this syrup and the mode of
preparing it, are the result of a series of experiments
continued fir years. Before offering it for sale, it was
subjected to the test of experience in the hands of emi
nent physicians, in Philadelphia atid elsewhere, who have
recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ it i
in their practice. In addition to tins evidence of its mer
its, we offer the following, selected from a number of un
solicited testimonial®.
Ist. A distinguished physician of Virginia, of much
experience, writes of it thus:
'•| should have written before thi?, hut felt disposed
first to try the efficacy of your Vermifuge. I have used
more than half the quantity received,and the experiment
has been most successful / really hrherr that it posse.',
sr.' advantages over any other Vrrmtf not I hare ever used.
Independent of the smalluess of the dose, and the plea
santness of the syrup (great advantages in dosing chil
dren) the advantage of adiiiini-termg it under a variety
of circumstances, enhances its value; indeed there is
scarcely a condition of the system in which it may not

advised a trial of Harris, Turner A Hale's Compound

this the gentleman returning to tho store, expressed his

Av iNVcr.R.ABT.K MEDICTSE.—Vv'e have frequently
heard the celebrated Herman Bilterv, maimfarttired hj
Dr. Hoofland, spoken ttf in termeof commendation, and
we know deservedly so. It is a too common practice, in
certain quarters, to putf all manner of useless trash, hm ,
in the cae of the above Bitters, hundreds are living wit
nesses of their great moral and physical Worth. As a
medicine for the Liver Ciunplnint, Jaundice, Nervous
DehilUy, and Dyspepsia, it has been ftmml invaluable,
effecting cures and thoroughly eradicating diseases when
other medicines have failed We feel convinced, that in
the use of the Herman BilteTs,the paient does not be
come debilitated, but constantly gains strength and vigor :
to the frame t fact worthy of great consideration The '
Bitters are pleasant iiita"ie and smell, andean be admin
islercd under any circumstances to the most delicate
stomach. Indeed, they can be used by all persons with i
the most perfect safety. K would be well for those af- I
fected in the nervous system, to commence with one tea- j
spoonful or less, and gradually increase. Wespeak from
experience, and are of course a projier judge. The press
far and wide have united in recommending the German
Bitters, ami to the atflicted we most cordially adv i.e Iheir

Dear sir—lt i* with much pleasure that 1 testify to the
extraordinary virtue* of your German Hitters, having j
sold largely of them thpse last few months to various

slder it the only medicine for the above diseases before ;
the public. I
i have never sold one bottle that ha not given satisfac
tion, and brought forth tue commendation of those who
used it.
I deem tins my duty both to you as the proprietor of :
this highiy valuable article, and to those afflicted with the
above complaints, that ihey may know of its curative
properties, and to enable th-in to select the good from the ,
various articles with which our market is flooded.

Dear sir— It i* with feelings <f pleasure 1 communicate
to you the sanative effects (and in a short time) of your j
invaluable HooH tmi's celebrated German Bitters, ujton
my system while laboring under the Jaundice. About ,
two years ago I had an attack of the Jaundice and was
confined to the house six weeks under medical treatment of
the Family Physician, and for some time after, when ]
went out I had to very careful of myself; since that time I
I have had several attacks of the same disease, and your
Bitters have entirely relieved and cured me in tiro or
three days. My next door neighbor, Mr. JOHN DIEHI., '
last spring, hail a long and serious spell of Jaundice; he I
had it some time before I knew it ; he teas confined to his !
bed. As soon as 1 heard of his condition 1 called to see ,
him and told him of the effect your Bitters had upon me
in the same disease. He immediately sent for a bottle,
and in a fete days he was cured. 1 have in several instan
ces recommended the Bitters in other cases, always pro
ducing the same happy effect. My wife has been consi- i
derably afflicted with Liver Complaint and Neuralgia; by
the use of the Bitters she is well, now enjoying good
health. We Itelieve from tire many cures we know of
these Bitters effecting, that they possess in a remarkable
and extraordinary degree great curative properties, and
that which enhances their value with us is, they arc en
tirely vegetable. We always keep the Bitters on liaml,
and would not be wfiling to do without them.
Very respectfully, yours,
