four and five miles from his mansion, These
'farms he visited every day In pleasant weather,
and was constantly engaged in making 'experi

Some idea of the extent of his farmirg,opera

1787, lie had five hundred acres in grass
sowed Fix hundred acres of oats; seven hun
dred acres in Wheat; and prepared as much
corn. barley. potatoes, beans, 1 ear, &c., and
one hundred and filly acres in turnips. Ilia

Stance of the wonderful character of the Bible

A smile rested upon the countenance of the
Mite fellow, as he wrote--
•• 'Phis is /1 faithful saying. and, worthy of

A third question was then proposed eviden t=

TH'preceding figure a to represent the INSEN
SIBLE PERSPIRATION. his the great evac
uation forlhe impurities of the body. It will be noticed
that a thick cloudy mist issues from all points of the sur
face. which indicates the wonderful process going on
within. This perspiration flows uninterruptedly when
we are in health, but ceases when we are sick. It should
be the caroof every one to see that it is not checked.—
Life cannot be sustained without it. It is thrown off
from the blood and other Juices of the body , and dispo
ses by this means, of nearly all impur ities within use.—
The blood by this means only, works tselfpure. The
language of Scripture is, "in thebloca is the lift" If
it ever becomes imptire. it may he traC-d diiec i ttp to the
stoppage of the insensible perspiration. IA negrrequires
any internal medicines to cleanse it, 10
, ftivays puri
fies itself by its own heat and action, an ttows off all
the offending humors, through the inseniablniferspiration.
Thus we see, all that is necessa-ry when 'the blood is
stagnant or infected, is toopen the pores, and it relieves
itself tmm all impurity instantly, Its own beat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle of medicine,
except to open the pores upon the surface, —Thus we
see the folly of taking so much internal redmilies. All
practicioners, however, direct their efforts to restore the
insensible perspiration. but it seems to he no always the
proper one. The Thompsoniana for insta pa, steams,
the Hy.'ropathist shrouds us in wet blankkts. the Ho-
mopathist deals out infinitissimals, the A llopathistbleeds
and doses us with merc'ury. and the blusteiing quack
gorges us with pills, pills, pills.
But one object only is in view, viz: to res ore the in
sensible perspiration. If this can be done, th y say, we
will take care of the rest. It will he seen, therefore,
-that all physicians understand alike what is necessary-to
a recovery, how much they may differ as to !the mode
of obtaining it.
To give some idea of the amount and consequently
the importance of the insensible perspiration, we will
state that the learned Ur. Lewenhock, andthe great Boer
haave, ascertained that five-eights nt all we received in.
to the stomach, passed off by this means. In other words,
if we eat and drink eight pounds per day. wb evacuate
five pounds of it by the insensible perspiration.
This is none other than the used up re licles of the
blood, and other juices, giving place to t g new and
fresh ones, by carrying with it all the imp rdes within
up to the surfa6.. To check this, thetefor ,'is to retain
in the systemOlt . Te eights of all the vii4lst t i matter that
nature dernsndkahould leave the body. A even when
this is the case,'"the blood is also active a p)nciple, that
it determines those particles, to the skin, where they forrn
scabs, pimples, ulcers, and other , spots'; but if it is di
reeled inwards, and fa:ls upon the hings, the mune
guences are generally fatal.
By a sudden transition from best to cold, the pores
are stopped, the perspiration ceases, and disease begins
at once to develope itself. Hence, a Stoppage of this
flow of the juices, originates so many clunplainte. It is
through the surface that we imbibe nearly all our ills.
it is stopping the pores, that overwhelms mankind
with coughs, colds, and consumption. Nine-tenths of
the world die from diseases induced by 'stoppage of the
insensible perspiration. It is easily seen therefore, bow
necessary is the flow of this subtle humor to the surface,
to preserve health. It cannot bstopped ;.it cannot even
be checked, without producing disease. The blood
and intestines must relieve themselves of all their worn
out particles, and poisonous humors. and they must go
through the pores as nature designed.
Let me ask now, every candid mind, what course
seems the most reasonable to pursue, and unstop the
pores, after they- are closed and let the perspiration flow,
that the blood may relievetbwlfof its impurities l Would
you give physic to unstop the pores!
_Or would you
apply something that would do this upon the surface,
where the clogging actually is I Would not this be com
mon sense!; And yet I know of no physician Who
makes an internal application to effect it. The reason I
assign is, that no medicine within their knowledge. is
capable of doing it. Under these circumstances, I pre-,
sent to physicians and - to all others, a preparatien that
has this power to the fullest extent.„—lt is dlcAllialera
All -Healing Oinhnent or the Wores Sake. It has
power to restore perspiration on the feet, on the head,
around °Wean's, upon the chest. in short, upon any part
of the body, whether diseased slightly or severely. W hen
the perspiration is restored, it has power to penetrate the
lungs, liver, or any part of the human system, and to act
'span them, if they be diseased, by separating the in
flamed morbid particles therefrom, and expelling them
to the surface.
It has power to cause all external Ewes, scrofulous MP.
- more. skin diseases, poisonous wounds to discharge their
putrid matter, and then heals diem. •
It is a remedy that sweeps oil the whole catalogue of
cutaneous disorders, and restores the entire cuticle to its
healthy functions.
It is a remedy that forbids the necessity of so many
and deleterious drugs taken into,the stomach.
It is a remedy that neither sickens, gives inconveni
ence, or is dangerous to the intestines.
This remedy is probably the only one not known,
that is capable of producing all these great results. Its
great value is in restoring at once, the circulation of the
juices when checked, or disarranged by cold or other
causes: It preserves and defends the surface from all
derangement-of its functions, while it keeps open the
channels for the blood to avoid all its iinpurities and dis
pose of all its useless particle.. There is,s connection,
harmony, and feasibility in all that defies contradiction.
It is a simple. hut wonderful principle that preserves in
healthy operation the entire machinery of qur being. It
indissolubly holds together the surtace and the internal
viscera, the internal viscera and the surface. They are
inseparably connected and cannot be disjoined. The
surface is the outlet of five-eights of the bile and used
up matter within. It is pierced with millions of open
ings to reliTe the intestines. Stop up these pores, and
death knoc sat your door. It is rightly termed All-
Healing, for there is scarcely a disease, external or in
ternal, that it will not benefit. It will be found the most
useful as well as the cheapest family medicine in the
world. I have used it for the last fourteen years with
success without a parallel. I haveused it-for all disease
of the chest, consumption, liver, and the most dangerous
of internal maladies. I have used it in cases of extreme
peril and hazard, involving the utmost danger and re
spansibility, awl I declare before Heaven and man, that
not in one single case has it jailed to benefit, when the
patient was within the reach of mortal means.
1 never, to my recollection had more than five or six
among the thoueanda who have used it,.say that it was
nut favorable to their complaint. On the Contrail I have
had hundreds return voluntarily, and in the warmest
and most pathetic language speak in its praise. I have
bad physicians, learned in the profession; 1 have had
nisters of the gospel, Judges on the bench, aldermen
and lawyers, gentlemen of the highest erudition and
multitudes of poor, use it in every variety of way. and
there has been but one voice, one united. universal voice
saying " McAllister your ointment is Fond."
Consumption.—Of all diseases, we find this the most
important, and concerning which we meet with the most
opposition. It can hardly be credited that a salve can
have more effect upon the lungs, seated as they are with
in the system. But we say once for all, that this eint
melt will reach the lungs quicker than any medicines
that can be given intetinally. Every body consents to
the fact that if bealine medicine could he applied on
the lungs, there woul be great hopes of recovery. The
difficulty is to get the medicine there., Now the Salve
has the tvonderful - virtue of extracting the putrid hu
mors from all external' sores by causing them to is
charge.. In like manner it operates upon internal affec
tions by driving all the impurities through the pores to
the surface., Thus with consumption, if placed upon
the chest, itpenetratei directly to the lungs, separatei
thepoisonous particles that are consuming them and ex•
pets them from the system.
It is the simplest and Most rational process in creation,
if one has the medicine - capable of doing it. The A ll-
RealMg Dintment pessessei this power -to the felled
extent I need not gay that it is curing persons of Con•
gumption continually, although we are told it is foolish
nem. I care not what is said, so long as I can cure se
sera! thousand persons yearly. If ibis medicine was in
the bands of some patent medicine brawlers, they would.
make an uproar through the country that would be in
Scrofula or King's EriL—This disease hue* in
veterate, and hard to be subdued. It is generally seated
in the sides of the neck, behind the ease and under the
chin, yet scarcely ony psit of the body is .exempt. It
sometimes falls upon tbetungs end produces corlsomp•
tion. It is a dreadful circumstance, that .this disease is
transmitted from parents to children. The Salve will
clued, all the morbid matter by causing the sores to dis•
charge; and then let then the Solar Tincture be used to
drive it to one point ; which done, a continuance of the
Ointment will completely remove this disorder. This is
the g.fest and niost effectual of any method. It should
be adopted without a moment's hesitation.

'% - _A
Erysipelas—Thiscomplaint arises from impurities
being driven out to the surface by means of the insensible
perspiration, 'and lodging in the cuticule, forms sores,
pimples &c., it being of a ,caustic, acrid putrifying na
ture. It only requires that it should discharge its vi
rulent particles through the skin, and the disc ilty will
pass off. If suffered to remain, and driven inwards it is
frequently fatal.
Let the Salve and Solar Tincture be used as in scro
fula and the patient will soon get well.
Sall Rheum.—This is another obstinate disease but
can be cured effectually as the scrofula. There is no
difficulty in this disease.
Head ache, Ear ache and Deafness.—The Salve has
cured persons of the Head-Ache of 12 years standing
and who had it regularly every week, so that vomiting
often took place. It cured the wife of a man who laugh
ed in my face for proposing such a cure. and who now
would not be without-it for the best farm in the State. If
any one will take the trouble to call I will give his name.
Deafness and Ear-Ache are helped - with the like sac
cesa as also Ague in the face. -
Cold Feet.—Consumption, liver complaint, pains in
the cheat or aide, falling of the hair, one or the other
always accompanies cold_ feet. It is g sure sign of dis
ease in the system to have cold feet. Some persoris are
totally unable to get them warm, and endure much suf
fering thereby.
The salve will restore the insensible perspiration and
thus cure every case. It is infallible for this. .
. Asthma, Tightness of Breath.—lf this disease is not
hereditary and produced by the malformation of the chest,
the salve will core it.
Dyspepsia.—One would suppose a salve would not
effect this disease much hut the All-Healing Ointment
will cure,two sooner than any internal remedy.will cure
:ore Eyes.—The inflamation and disease always liea
hack of the ballof the eye in the socket. Hence the util•
ity of all remedies that are used upon the lids. The
virtue of any medicine must reach the seat of inflam
mation or it will do little good. This salve if rubbed
on the temples will penetrate directly into the socket
and infuse all its virtues upon the disorder. The pores
will be opened. a proper perspiration will be created and
the disease will anon peas off to the surface. How
easy and how natural It is as perfect and valuable as
it is simple and philosophical.
Sore Lips, Chapped Hands sell a great deal
of salve to Seamen, who say it is the only thing they
can depend on to cure their raw hands, when exposed
to the weather - at sea. It acts like a charm in these corn
plaints. Two or three applications cures.
Pimples on the face, freckles, tan, masculine skin,
gross surface.—lts first action is to expel all humor. It
will not cease drawing till the face is free from any mat
ter that may be lodged under the akin and frequently
breaking out to the surface. It then heals. ' When
there is nothing but grossness, or dull repulsive surface,
it begins to soften and soften until the skin becon es as
soft and delicate as a child's. It throws a freshness and
blushing color upon the now white transparent skin
that is - perfectly enchanting. Sometimes in case of Freck
les it will fiat start out those that hay!. lain hidden and'
seen but seldom.- Pursue the salve and all will soon dis
The reason for this wonderful change in a lady's
face is that it excites into natural and healthy activity
the Insensible Perspiration, while it renovates and re.
news the surface, and leaves the skin in as lively and
delicate a condition as the most fastidious could desire.
It is put up in fine jars and beautifully scented on pur
pose for the toilet.
Eiwns.—Life can always be saved if the vitals are
not injured. I have so many testimonials for the cure
of this complaint that I could fill a book. I suppose
there is not a faunh• in the United States, that would
consent to he without this salve a single day if they
knew its halm in healing BUMS alone. , It extracts the
pain and leaves the place withouta scar:
Quinsy gore throat. Influenza. Bronchitis.—There
is not an internal remedy 111 existence that will cure
these disorders as quick as the salve. Itopens the pores
on the neck and draws off all the inflammation and im
pure juices. finite, few days will see the patient well.
It is sovereign' in these cases.
Piles.—The sake acts upon the piles as upon sore
eye.. There is en infisnunniion which must be drawn
from the parts. The salve does this.
Ilcrnia or-flupture.—Thin salve has cured some very
had cases of rupture, and although it might not all, yet it
would be wise to try it. It is a peculiar complaint, but
it may be helped some, if not cured entirely. I have
not the shadow of a doubt that it would cure thousands
if the trial was made, who believe no medicine of the
least benefit.
Two shillings worth would satisfy any one, whether
it would do good or not.
Worms.—lf parents knew hiaw fatal most medicines
were to children taken inwardly, they would be slow to
resort to them. Especially " mercurial lozenges," call
ed "medical It zenges," vermifugrs," &c. Eves
Were it possible to say positively that worms were pre
sent, it is iot safe. The truth is, no one can tell, inva
riably, when worms are present. Of coulee the remedy
is not applicable to the complaint. Now let me say to
parents, that this salve will always tell if a child has
worms. Let it be rubbed on the neck and chest, to keep
them from going tip, and then down on the bowels and
they aid soon leave. It will drive every vestige of them
away. This is aesimple and safe cure. No injury can
come of it in any way. But should it he cholic, infla
tion of the bowels, or gripe of the intestines, it will ef
fectually cure them as the worms.
There is probably no medicine on the (moor the earth
at once so sure and safe in the expulsion of worms.
It would he cruel, nay wicked, to give internal doubt
ful medicines, so long as a harmless, certain, arid effect.
ual external one could he had.
Chulie, Pain, or Inflammntion of the Bowels". —Let
the salve be rubbed in and heated with the fire or hot
flat irons, and all pains and difficulty will soon cease.
Swellings of the joints, or weakness, or any affection
of the bone, nothing is so good for as this salve.
Poisons.—l never knew anything so gond as this
salve. It causes the poison to discharge immediately,
and leaves not the slightest cause of alarm. Poisons by
nails, bites of animals, or burns, it removes when no
thingelse will.
Toilet.-1 have it done up in fine order for the dres
sing case. Although I have said little about it as a hair
restorative, yet I will stake itagainst the world ! They
may tiring their oils far and near, and mine will recline
the hair two cases to their one. These are no idle words,
for I am ready to hack it with any reasonable amount.
Old Sores, Mortification, Ulcers, 4c.—There is no cf
ectual way of curing these, but drawing off the putrid
matter. To merely dry it up would only endanger one'
health more. That some sores are an outlet to the im
purities of the system, is the only reason, because they
cannot pass off through the natural chanwls of the In
sensible Perspiralion If such sores are healed up, the
impurities must have some other nutlet, or it will endan
ger life. This is the reason why it is impolitic to use the
common salves of the day in inch cases. For they have
no power to open other revenues, to let off all this mor
bid matter, and the consequences are always- fatal. This
salve will always provide for such emergencies. There
heed he no fear. It is perfect.
Broken Breasl.—Persdns
,need never have a broken
breast. The salve will always prevent it, if used in sea
Liver Complaint.—Peronms laving this complaint fre
quently have eruptions of the hands, face and other
parts. and never once this It that it arises from the liver.
!'heir utter inability to remove these irruptions, proves
their misapprehension of the disorder. Such must use
it first on the feet. then wear it on the cheat, and the
difficulty will soon go away.
Mae Passion or Griping of the Infestines.—This
disease caused the death of the late H. S. Legere, At
tomey General and acting Secretary of the United States.
It is the stopping up of the smaller intestines, and some
times the twisting of them. It is brought on by a negr
lect of the daily evacuations, or from incarcerated Her•
