be loaded out of the mill into boats, and all ex

If wheat brings a belter price than it will af

A certain Cure for Ague, Fever,
and Dyspepsia.
IN' our summer and full months many sections of our
country are prostrated by BILI.TOUB FEVER and
AGUE and FEVER.—It has been our particular study to
And out some remedy to stop this dreadful scourge, and
think, in this TONIC we have effected this great object.
It is alss we think the very best remedy in Dyspepsia,
and if our directions are followed, will not fail to effect
a cure.
In a letter dated, May 23.1, 1919, our Agent, Mr. Elias
Raub, of Wrightsville, York county, Pa , says:—l have
never known any remedy for Fever and Jlfue equal to
your invaluable National Tonic. It lias given universal
satisfaction, and has cured cases of Ague of years stand
ing, and after the failure of all other medicines made use
of. Mr. Henry Beverson, of the aame place, saya in his
certificate, dated 22d March, 1949, ' I applied to a number
of Physicians, and also used a variety of the most popu
lar Ague Mixtures at different limes, but all without the
desired effect; no permanent cure having been afforded.
I was at length induced, at the recommendation of your
worthy Agent ut this place, to try a bottle of your Na
tional Tonic, and to my great satisfaction, before I had
used half of it, I felt completely cured, though I contin
ued the use of it till i had taken two bottles.' In a joint
certificate from Messrs. Miles Hoke, William Blsckson,
and James D. Brown, of the same place, they say—'Hav
ing tried nearly nil the remedies within our reach with
out success, we at last purchased some of your National
Tunic, which has completely cured us. We, therefore,
cheerfully recommend it to the notice of all persons af
flicted with that terrible disease as the best remedy yet

Female Complaints, Nervous Com;>laiiits,
and a variety of other diseases arising from impurities of
the blood, and obstructions in the organs of digestion.
The aversion to taking medicine is effectually removed
being completely enveloped with a coating of pure white
sugar (wlii. ii is as distinct from the internal ingredients
as a nut shell from the kernel) and hare no taste of medi
cine but as easily swallowed as bits of candy. Moreover
they NKlTHfcu aAt skATE oa OHiet, hut operate equally
upon all the diseased parts of the system. Thus, if the
liver be affected, one ingredient will operate on that
particular organ, and, by cleansing it of any excess of
bile restore it to its natural state. Another will operate
on the blood, while a third will effectually expel what
ever impurities may have been discharged into the stom
ach, and hence they strike at the ruot of disease, thus se
curing a free an.) healthy action to the heart, lungs, and
Liver ;and thereby tbey restore health even when all
other means have failed.
The entire truth of the above can be ascertained by the
trial of a single box ; and their virtues are so jiositive and
certain HI restoring health that the proprietor binds him
self to return the money paid for 'hem in all cases tt here
they do not give universal satisfaction.

C ompound Syrup ofSpigelia
or Vegetable Vermifuge,
The most effectual, the safest, jdeasantrst
and most eourenient Worm Medicine
ever offered to the public.
'ltllK SPIGELtA, says a work of hiehest authority,
j -I- stands at the head uf the list of Anthelmintics or H'ortr
I Mtdiemes. It is adapted to a wider range of cases, and
I to a greater variety of constitutions and states of the
I constitution, than any other. But prepared as it com
j inoi.lv is, in the form of lea, it can seldom be given to
| . hil.lreu in sufficient .loses In Harris, Turner Ac IL.le's
I Compound Syrup, i? 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, tiolonly with ease,
' but with positive pleasure.
The precise composition of this syrup and the mode of
preparing it, are titc result of a series of experiments
continued for years. Before offering it for sale, it was
subjected to the test of experience in the hands of eini
. nent physicians, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, who have
1 recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ it
in their practice. In addition to tins evidence of its mer
its, we offer the following, selected from a number of un
solicited testimonials.
Ist. A distinguished physician of Virginia, of much
experience, writes of it thus:
'•I should have written before t!ii, but felt disposed
first to try tile efficacy of your Vermifuge. 1 have used
more than half the quantity received,and the experiment
has been most successful. / really beliere that it posses,
ses adva over any othi r Ftrmifagt I have ever used.
Independent of the small lies, of the dose, and the plea
santness of the syrup (great advantages in dosing chil
dren) the advantage of administering it under a variety
of circumstances, enhances its value; indeed there is
scarcely a condition of the system in w Inch it may not
be administered. Yours, Ac."
2.1 A respectable physician uf Lebanon county, in this
state, writes
" I have been in the habit of prescribing your Compound
Syrup of Spigelta for some time past, and have found it
an excellent worm medicine, particularly for children.—
Please forward per bearer 2 dnz bottles. —Yours, tic."
3d —An intelligent merchant of Viiguiia to whom we
had previously sold the syrup, writes :
"Since my return home, I find that your Syrup of Spi
geli.a lias come into general use in this neighborhood. We
have sold what we had on hand, and it gave such satis
faction that it is now called forevey day. You will please
put lis up 5 or <> dozen in a smalt package, and send to the
. are of \V. Anderson Ac Co , Ki> timolol, as soon as possi
ble, and forward the bill |>er mail.—Yours, Ace."
-Itii —A r. spectable merchant of Ohio, on a late visit to
Philadelphia, stated, tli.tl some tune since lie had been ap
plied to by a customer for a vial of 's Ver
mifuge for bis son. Not having the article asked for, he
advised a trial of Harris, Turner & Hale's Compound
Byrupof Spigelia and gave liim it pari u/ u bottle \\ Inch
wss ail that remained HI the store. A day or two alter
this the gentleman returning to the store, expressed his
surprise and delight ut the effect of the Syrup, declaring
it had e spelled 200 worms and entirely relieved his son.
The men haul added an expression of his great regret that
he had not had on hands a bottle of the Syrup at the time
when his own little daughter died, as he confidently be
lieved it would have saved her life.
5th —A gentleman of Hudson, N. Y , having sent a hot.
tleof Harris, Turner A Hale's Compound Syrup of Sp,

A* INVALIABLE MEDICINE. —We have frequently
heard the celebrated German Bitters, manufactured by
Dr. Ilootlaiid, spoken of in terms of commendation, and
we know deservedly so. It is a too common practice, in
certain quarters, to puff all manner of useless trash, but
in the case of the above Bitters, hundreds are living wit
nesses of their great moral and physical worth. As a
medicine for the Liver Complaint, Jaundice, Nervous
Debility, and Dyspepsia, it has been found invaluable,
effecting cures and thoroughly eradicating diseases when
other medicines have failed. We feel convinced, that in
the use of the German Hitters, the patient does not be
come debilitated, but constantly gains strength and vigor
to the frame—a fact worthy of great consideration. The
Bitters are pleasant in taste and smell, and can he admin
istered under any circumstances to the most delicate
stomach. Indeed, they can be used by all |iersons with
the most perfect safety. It would be well for those af
fected in the nervous system, to commence with one tea
spoonful or less, and gradually increase. Wespeak from
experience, and are of course a proper judge. The press
far and wide have united in recommending the German
Bitters, and to the afflicted we most cordially advise their
" Spirit of ihe Times," June 24, s;ty9 :
" Do our good citizens who are invalids, know the ma
ny astonishing cures that have been performed by Dr
Hoofland's celebrated German Bitters ? If they do not,
we recommend them to the ' German Medicine Store,'
ali who are afflicted with Liver Complaint, Jaundice,
Dyspepsia, or Nervous Debility; the doctor has cured
many of our citizens after the best physicians had failed.
We have used them, and they have proved to be a medi
cine that every one should know of, and we cannot re
frain giving our testimony iu their favor, and that which
gives them greater claim upon our humble effort is, they
are entirely vegetable.

had it some time before 1 knew it; he was confined to his j
bed. As soon as 1 heard of his condition I called to see j
him and told him of the effect your Hitters had upon me *
in the same disease. He immediately sent for a bottle, ,
nud in a few days he was cured. 1 have in several instan- .
res recommended the Bitters in other cases, always pro- j
during the same happy effect. My wife has been consi
derably afflicted with Liver Complaint and Neuralgia; by '
the use of the Bitters she is well, now enjoying good
health. We believe from ihe 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 are en- .
tirely vegetable. We always keep the Bitters on hand, j
and would not be willing to do without them.

Lunatic Asylum, BlackweM's Island, is the gentleman
spoken of in the following letter. This is only one of
i more than four thousand cases of Rheumatism that Dr.
Townsend's Sarsaparilla has cured.
Blacktrell's Island, Sept. 14,1847.
Dr. Townsend— Dear Sir : I have suffered terribly for
nine years with the Rheumatism; considerable of the
time I could not eat, sleep, or walk. 1 had the utmost
distressing pains, and my limbs were terribly swollen. I
i have used four bottles of your Sarsaparilla, and they
, have done me more than one thousand dollars worth of
; good. I am so much better—indeed, I am entirely re
j tiered. Vou are at liberty to use this for the benefit of
the afflicted. Yours, respectfully, JAMES Cl'xmixgs.
Fits ! Fits ! Fits !
Dr. Townsend, not having tested his Sarsaparilla in
j cases of Fits, of course never recommended it, and was
surprised to receive the following from an intelligent and
: respectable Farmer in Westchester county :
Fordham, August 13,1647.
Dr. Townsend—Dear Sir: I have a little girl seven
j years of age, who has been several years afflicted with
Fits ; we tried almost everything for her, but withoutauc
cess; at last, although we could find no recommendation
[ in our circulars for cases like hers, we thought, ai she
was in very delicate health, we would give her some of
your Sarsaparilla, and are very glad we did, for it not
only restored her strength, but she has had no return of
the Fits, to our great pleasure and surprise. Sbs is fast
becoming rugged and hearty, for which we feel grateful

Great Blessing to Mothers and Children.
It is the safest and most effectual medicine for purify
ing the system, and relieving the sufferings attendant up
on child-birth ever discovered. It strengthens both the
mother and child, prevents pain and disease, increases
and enriches the food, those who have used it think it is
indispensable. It is highly useful both before and after
confinement, as it prevents diseases attendant upon child;
birth—in Costiveness, Piles, Cramps, Swelling of the
Feet, Despondency, Heartburn, Vomiting, Pain in the
Back and Loins, False Pains, Hemorrhage, arid in regula
ting the secretions, Ac., it has no equal.
Cosmetics, Chalk, and a variety of preparations gene
rally in use, when applied to the face, very soon spoil it
of its beauty. They close the pores of the skin, and check
the circulation, which, when nature is not thwarted by
disease or powder, or the skin inflamed by the alkalies
used in soaps, beautifies its own production in the " hu
man face Divine," as well as in the garden of rich and
delicately tinted and vanagated flowers. Ladies in the
north who lake but little exercise or are confined io close
rooms, or have spoiled their complexion by the application
of deleterious mixtures, if they wish lo regain elasticity
of step, buoyant spirits, sparkling eyes and beautiful
complexions, they should use Dr Townsend's Sarsapa
rilla. Thousands who have tried it, ate more than satis
lied, are delighted. Ladies of every station crowd our
office dailv.
Those that imitate Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla, have
invariably called their stuff a great remedy for Females,
-f-e., -ft., and have copied our bills and circulars which re
late to the complaints of women, word for word—other
meu who put up medicine, have, since the great success
of Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla in complaints incident to
females, recommended theirs, although previously they
did not. A number of these Mixtures, Pills, Ac., are in
jurious to females, as they aggravate disease, and under
mine the constitution.
This certificate conclusively proves that this Sarsapa
rilla Ins perfect control over the most obstinate disca*'
of the Blood. Three persons cured in one house nUJ
precede n ted.
DR. TOWNSESD— Dear Sir : 1 have the pleasure to in
form you that three of my children have beencureiloi l!,e

only four bottles ;it took them away,for which 1 feel m>-
