which was original!' . an i continues to be munutac

afterwards for several years and to the present time,
by < lapp Tow use nd, the present proprietors. Since
the puttuciship was formed, the Doctor lias resided in
New York, where he keeps a -tore, and attends to the
business that accumulates .it that point The manu

Few of our citizens have any idea of the amount of
this medicine that is inauulactured and sold besides
the sales in this is shipped to the < ana.las.
West India Islands, South America, and even to Ku

they employ u steam engine, besides n large number
of men, women and girl-, in the preparation of ilie
medicine, making hose.-, punting, in*, and turn out,
ready for shipment, over 4(U> dozen jei day, or neatly
6000 bottles. This is an enormous quantity.
The great sale the medicine has acquired, has in
duced a uumhei of meu to get up imitations, and there
is at the present time, other medicines for sale, that
aro called " Dr. Towneud's Sairaparilla." One in par
