If you have contracted the terrible disease, which when
once seated in the system, will surely go down from one
generation to another, undermining the constitution, and
sapping the very vital fluids of life, do not trust yourself
in the hands of Quacks, who start up every day in a city
like this, and fill the papers with glaring falsehoods too
well calculated to deceive the young and those not ac
quainted with their tricks. You cannot be too careful in

It is a medi< ine perfectly pleasant in its taste, and very
innocent in its action, aud yet so thorough that it annihi
