i Compound Syrup ofSpigclia
or Vegetable Vermifuge,
The most effectual, the safest, plcasanlcst
, and most convenient Worm Medicine
; ever offered to the public.
milE SPMJF.LIA, says ;t work of highest authority,
j ftandi at the head of the lint of Anthelmintic* or IVuna
I Medicine*. It is adapted to aw ider range of cast s, and
i 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 leu, it can seldom be given to
: children in sufficient doses In Harris, Turner &. 11 tie's
i Compound rivrup, it is so concentrated that the dose is
j very small, so combined as to ensure a purgative opera
' lion, and so palatable as to be taken, rot only v\ ith ease,
i but with positive pleasure.
j The precise composition of this syrup and the mod of
| preparing it, are the result of a series of experiments
j continued for years. Before offering it for- ale. it was
I subjected to the test of experience in the hands of eiui
| neiitplijsn ians, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, who have
I recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ it
i in their practice. In addition to this evidence of its mer
' its, we offer the following, selected from a number of mi
j solicited testimonials.
I Ist. A distinguished physician of Virginia, of much
I experience, writes of it thus:
: '"I should have written btfire this, but fell disposed
; first to try the efficacy of your Vermifuge. 1 have used
i more than half the quartity received,and the experiment
has been most successful. I realty believe th.it t< poems
*e* advantage* over any other Ti rmifupr I have ri tr used.
Independent of the ujiialhiess "f the dose, ami the pica
f.ntness of the syrup (great mlvant •. .- in dosing chil
dren) the advantage of administering it under a variety
of circumstances, enhances it- value; indeed there i
scarcely a condition of the syt-t :m in which it may not

UJ. A respectable physician of Lebanon county, in this
state, writes
" I have been in the ha 1 it < f prescribing v nr Com pound

an excellent worm medicine, particularly for children.—
Please forward per bearer 2 dot. bottles. —Yours. 4cc."

had previously sold th • syrup, writes :

The moon 9hines bright,
And the ship bounds light.
As the stag bounds o'er the lea!
We love the strife
Of a sailor's life,
And we love our dark blue sea.
Now high, now low,
To the depths we go,
Now rise on the surge again ;
We make a track
O'er the ocean's back,
And play witb hoary main.
Fearless we face
The storm in the chase,
When the dark ciouds fall before it;
And meet the shock
Of the fierce Siroc,
Though death breathes holly o'er it.
The landsman may quail
At the shout of the gale.
Peril's the sailor's joy ;
Wild as the waves
Which his vessel braves,
Is the lot of the sailor boy.
irH i Stella it cous,
A A ankee fellow, writing from on board
a .Mississippi steamboat to the Spirit ol
the Times, teds the following store.
There was one teller on board who was
, drest rite tine, an' had lots of gold clians
an' fixens 011. an' he was sitten' at a table
all alone, a shufHin' a pack of cards ; an'
bimeby a teller cum along wot J had seen
steerin a boat, an' this feller says to him—
"\V ill you play a leetle game ofyewker,
jest to kill time ?"
" Don't keer if I du," says the steerin'
feller, an' at it they went.
! euikiiate they both played tolerablv
tiffin, cause they quit about even. Then
< this jewelry teller sez to the other—
"l'll bet you a hundred dollars I ken
turn up a jack the first time I try."
; " An' let me shutHe 'em," sez the feller
wot was steerin' the boat.
" As long as you like," sez tother.
" Guess as how I'll take that bet," sez
the steerin' feller, "an'here's your puttv!"
An" they told me to hold the stakes.
The steerin' feller shuffled 'em a good
while, an' then handed 'em to tother, an'he
takes an' turns o\ er the hull pack, an' sez'—
•• 1 ve tumid "em all four over, au' won
the money."'
'• Not this load of poles, I reckon you
haint; let's see 'c m."
An' then the steerin' feller begins an'
deals 'em all oil* an' there waru't nary jack
in the pack ! So I <rm the money to the
boatman, an' he sez—
*• Next time you tish for a sucker, look
