our learned men is, that when they enter a

so immersed in Greek and Hebrew, that

A Great Dyspepsia curar, Prepared from
RENNET, or the fourth Stomach of the Ox,
after direction* of Baron Liebig, the great
Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton,
M. D., No. 11, North Eighth Street, Phila
delphia, Pa.
This is a truly wonderful remedy for Indi
gestion, Dyspepsia, Jaudiee, Liver Com
plaint. Constipation, and Debility, Curing
after Nature's own method, by Nature's own
agent, the Gastric Juice.
Ey Half a spoonlnl of this Fluid, infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Fivt Pounds
of Roast Beef-in about two hours, out of the
Digestion is Chiefly performed in the
stomach by the aid of a fluid which freely
exudes from the inner coat of that organ,
when in a slate ol health, called the Gastric
Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the
Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula
ting Agent of the stomach and intenstines.
Without it thero will bo no digestion,—no
conversion of food into blood, and no nu
trition of tho body; but rather a foul, torpid,
painf'il, and destructive condition of the
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half
dead, or injured stomach produces nd good
Gastric Juice, and hence the disease, dis
tress and debility which ensue.
PEPSIN AUD RENNET. —Pepsin is the chief
element, or great Digesting Principle of the
Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun
dance in the solid parts of the human stom
ach after de ith, and sometimes causes the
stomach to digest itself, or eat i'solf up. It
is also found in the stomach of animals, as
the ox, calf, &c. It is the material used by
farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet,
the effect of which has long been the spe
cial wonder of the dairy. The curdliug of
milk is the first process of digestion. Ken
net possesses nstonislii"g power. The stom
ach of a calf will curdle nearly one thou
sand times its own weight of milk. Baron
Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will
digest meat and other food." Diseased
stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want
may be porlectly supplied, we quote the
BARON LIEBIO, in his celebrated work on
Animal Chemistry, says : "An Artificial Di
gestive Fluid analagous to the Gastric Juice,
may he readily prepared from the nucous
ineinbrano of the stomach of the Call, in
which various articles of food, as meat and
will be solicited, changed, and diges-
I-d, just in tho same manner as they would
be in the human stomach."
Dr. I'ereira, in his famous treatise on
"Food and Diet," published by Fowlers &
Wells, New York, page 35. states the same
great fact, and describes the method of prep
aration. There are few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Combe, in .his valuable writings on
the "Physiology of Digestion," observes
that "a diminution of the due quantity of
the Gastric Juice is a prominent and all-pre
vailing cause of Dyspepsiaand he states
that "a distinguished professor of medicine
in London, who was severely afflicted with
this complaint, finding every thing, else to
fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob
tained from the stomach of living animals,
which proved completely successful."
Dr. Graham, author of tho famous works
on "Vegetable Diet," says : "it is a remar
kable fact in physiology, that the stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the fluid the properly of dissolving various
articles of food, anil of effecting a kind of
artificial digestion of them in no wise dif
ferent from the natural digestive process."
Dr. Simon's great work, the "Chemistry
of Man," (Lea & Blanc-hard, Phils. 1846,
pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN
fo ms a new era in the chemical history of
Di gestion. From recent experiments we
know that food is dissolved as rapidly in an
artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep
sin, as it is in the natural Gastric Juice it
Professor Dunglison of the Jefferson Col
lege, Philadelphia, in'his great work on Hu
man Physiology, devotes more than fifty
pages to an examination of this subject.
Ills experiments with Dr Beaumont, on the
Gastric Juice, obtained from tho living hu
man stomach and from animals are well
known. "In all cases," he says, "digestion
occurred as perfectly in the artificial as the
natural digestions."
As a DYSPEPSIA CUIIER, Dr Houghton's
preparation of Pepsin has produced the
most marvellous eflects, curing cases of De
bility, Emaciation. Nervous Decline, and
dispeptic Consumption, supposed to be on
the very verge of the grave. It is imposs

Their power over the above diseases is
not excelled, if equalled, by any other rep
aration in the United States, as the cures
attest, in many cases after skilful physicians
had failed.
These Hitters aro worthy iho attention of
invalids. Possessing great virtues in the
rectification of diseases of the Liver and 1 ts
ser glands, exercising the most searching
powers in weakness and aficctionsof the di
gestive organs, they are, withal, safe, cer
tain and pleasant.
Ilead and be Convinced.
The Hon. Charles D. Hineline, Editor of
the "Camden Democrat,"the best paper in
West Jersey, sap. July 21
have seen many Haltering notices of this
medicine, and the source from which they
came, induced us to make inquiry respect
ing its merils. From inquiry we were pet
suaded to use it, and must say we found
it specific in its aclion upon diseases of the
liver and digestive organs, and the powerful
influence it exerts upon nervous prostration
is really surprising. It calms and stregthens
the nerves, bringing them into a state of re
pose, making sleep relreshing.
[From the "Boston Bee. ]
The editor saitl, Dec. 22d—
"Dr. Hoofland's Celebrated German Bitters
for the cure of Liver Complaint, Jaundice,
1 Dyspeysia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, is
deservedlv one of the most popular medi
• cines of the day. These Hitters have been
used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow
says he has himself received an effectual
1 and permanent euro of Liver Complaint
1 from the use of this remedy. We are con
-1 vinced that, in the use of These Bitters, the
patient constantly gains strength and vigor—
' a fact worthy of "great consideration. They
I are pleasant in taste and smoll, and can be
. j used by persons with the mst delicatestom
; achs with safety, under any circumstances.
, We are speaking from experience and to the
> afflicted wc advise their use."

The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," t he j

in the neighborhood of Philadelphia, have
been cured since the first of Sept., last. In
Dyspepsia, Rheumatism, Liver Complaint,
Scrofula, for Worms, and all other diseases
of children, they are unequalled by anything
ever prepared for the purpose, While for the
various diseases ot Females there is no me
dicine can compare with them. There is
more of them sold—they are in greater de
mand than any other pill—and when once
introduced in a family, they need no ol' l ® l
