A Great Dyspepsia curer, Preparer! from
RF.NNET, or the fourth Stomach of the Ox,
after directions of Barmi Liebig, the great
Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton,
M. D., No. 11, North Eighth Street, l'hila
delphia, Pa.
This is a truly wonderful remedy for Indi
geslion, Dyspepsia, Jaudioe, Liver Com
plaint, Constipation,-and Debility, Curing
after Nature's own method, by Nature's own
agent, the Gastric Juice.
PS" Half a spoonful of this Fluid, infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Five 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 state ot 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 intenslines.
Without it there will be no digestion,—no
conversion of food into blood, and no nu
trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid,
painful, and destructive condition of the
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half
dead, or injured stomach produces 110 good
Gastric Juice, and hence the disease, dis
ircssatid debility which ensue.
PEPSIN AND RENNET. —Pepsin is the chief
element, or groat Digesting Principle of the
Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun
dance 111 the solid parts of the human stom
ach after de ilh, and sometimes causes the
stomach to digest itself, or eat itself up. It
is also found in the stomach of animals, as
lhe 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. Ren
net possesses astonishing 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 perlectly supplied, we quota the
BARON LIEWG, in Lis celebrated work on
Animal Chemistry, says : "An Artificial Di
gestive Fluid analagou" to the Gastric Juice,
may be readily prepared from the micous
membrane of the stomach of the Call, in
which various articles of food, aB meat and
eggs" will be softened, changed, and diges
ted, Just in the same manner as they would
be in lhe human stomach."
Dr. Pereira, in his famous treatise on
"Food and Diet," published by Fowlers A
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 Dyspepsia;" and he states
that "a distinguished professor of medicine
in London, who was severely afflicted with
this complaint, finding every thine "I'se to
fail, had recourse to the Oasiric Juice, ob
tained from the stomach of living animals
which proved completely succ.isslul." '
Dr- Grabf-ii, author of the famous works
"'v ege'.gbie Diet," says: "it is a remar
kable tact in physiology, that the stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the fluid the properly of dissolving various
articles of food, and 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 & Blanrhard, Phila., 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.
His experiments with Dr Beaumont, on the
Gastric Jnice, 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 CURER, Dr Houghton's
preparation of Pepsin lias produced the
most marvellous envois, curing eases of De
bility, Emaciation, Nervous Decline, and
dispeptic Consumption, supposed to bo on
tho very verge ol the grave. It is imposs

The Hon. Charles D. Hineliue, Editor of
the "Catnden Democrat," the best paper in
West Jersey, says, July 21: —
have seen many flattering notices of this
medicine, and the source from which they
came, induced us to make inquiry respect
ing its merits. From inquiry we were per
suaded to use it, and must say we found
it specific in its action upon diseases of the
liver and digestive organs, and the powerful
influence it exerts upon nervous prostration
is really surprising. It calms and stregihens
tho nerves, bringing them into a state ol re
pose, making sleep refreshing.
[From 'he "Boston Bee. ']
The editor said, Dec. 22d—
'Dr. Hoofland's Celebrated German Bitters
for the cure of Liver Complaint, Jaundice,
Dyspeysia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, is
deservedlv one of the most popular medi
cines of the day. These Bitters have been
used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow
says he lias himself received an effectual
and permanent cure of Liver Complaint
from the use of this remedy. We are con
vinced that, in the use of these Bitlers, the
pai! p 9t constantly £iiis strength and vigor—
a fact worthy of great consideration. They
are pleasant in tnsfe and smell, and can be j
used by persons with the most delicate stom
achs with safety, under any circumstances.
We are speaking from experience audio the
afflicted we advise their use."
Judge M. M. Noah, a gentleman with
great scientific and and litterary attainments,
said in his "New York Weekly Messenger,"
January 6, 1850.
"Dr IlooJlaneTs German Bitters. —Hero is
a preparation which the leading presses in
the Union appear to be unanimous in re
commending, and the reason is obvious. It
is made after a prescription furnished by
one o: the most celobraled physicians of
modern times, the late Dr Christopher Wil
helm Hoofland, Professor to the Univeisity
of Jena, Private Physician to the King of
Prussia, and one of the greatest medical wri
ters Germany has ever produced. He was
emphaticaßy .the enemy of humbug, and
the.efore a medicine of which lie was the
inventor and endorser may be confidently le
licd on. lie specially recommended it in
Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility, Ver
tigo, Acidity of the Stomach, Constipation,
and all complaints arising from a disordered
condition of the stomach, the liver and the
intestines. Nine Philadelphia papers express
their conviction of its excellence, and sev
eral ot the editors speak of its effects from
their own individual experience. Under
these circumstances, we (eel warranted, not
only in calling the attention of our readers
to the present proprietor's (Dr. C. M. Jack
son's) preparation, but in recommending the
article to all afflicted."
The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the
best family newspnpet published in the Uni
t ed Slates, the editor says of
"It is seldom that we recommend what
are termed Patent Medicines to tho confi
dence and patronage of our readers: and,
therefore, when wo recommend Dr. Hoof
land's German Bitters, we wish it to bo dis
linctly understood It at we are not speaking
of the nostrums of the day, that are noised
about for a brief period ami then forgotten
after they hare done their guilty race of mis
chif, but of a medicine long established,
universally prized, and which has met the
hearty appro?*' 0' the Faculty itself."
Evidence upou e\ld? l,r .e has been rc
[ ccived (like the foregoing) from all sections
ol the Union, the last three yeai, and the
strongest testimony in its favor, is, that there is
more of it used in tho practice of the regu
lor Physicians of Philadelphia than all other
nostrums combined, a fact that can easily
be established, and fully proving that a sci
entific. preparation will meet with their qur>

That this medicine will cure Liver Com
plaint and Dyspepsia, no one can doubt, af

upon the stomach and liver—it is preferable
to calomel in all bilious diseases —the effect is
immediate. They can ha administrued to

benefit, at any time.
