DOWAQIAC, Mich., March 11, 1856.
J. A. RHODES, Esq.: Dear Sir—As I took
your medicine to sell on consignment, "no
cure no pay," I take pleasure in stating its ef
fects as reported to me by three brothers who
live in this place, and their testimony is a
fair specimen of all I have received.
W. S. CON KLIN told me—"l had taken
nine bottles of Christie's Ague Balsam, and
continually run down while using it until
my lungs and liver were congested to that
degree that blood discharged from my mouth
and bowels, so that all thought it impossible
for me to live through another chill. The
doctors too did all they could for me, but
thought I must die. Nothing did me any
good until 1 got Rhodes' Fever and Ague
Cure, which at once relieved me of the dis
tress and nausea at my stomach and pain in
my head and bowels, and produced a perma
nent cure in a short time."
H. M. CONKLIN says—bad been tak
ing medicine of as good a doctor as wo have
in our country, and taken any quantity of
quinine and specifies without any good result,
Irom 25th August to 17th December. But
seeing how nicely it operated on my brother,
I got a bottle of Rhode's Fpver and Ague
Cure, which effected a permanent cure by
using two thirds of a bottle."
S. M. CONKLIN was not here, but both
the other brothers say his case was the same
as H. M's. I sold the medicine to both the
same day, and the cure was as speedy from
the same small quantity, and I might so spe
cify. Yours with respect,
The above speaks for itself. Good proof
as it is, it iB of no better tenor than the vast
number of like certificates I have already
published, and the still greater amount that
is continually pouring in to me.
One thing mors. Last year I had occasion
to caution the public in these words:
"1 notice one firm who have taken one of
my generel circulars, substituted the name
of their nostrum for ir.y medicine, and then
with brazen impudence end their pamphlet 1
with the exclamation, 'Let the Proprietor of
any other medicine say at muoh il he dares,'
&c. &o. .
Now I take pleasure in saving that the
Caution referred to the same "Dr. Christie's
Ague Balsam" that is mentioned in the above
There are several other industrious people
who are applying to their poisonous trash all
that I publish about my Fever and Ague
Cure, or Antidote to Malaria, except'the cer
tificates of cures, and the certificate of the
celebrated Chemist, Dr. James R. Chilton,
of New Yotk, in favor of its perfectly barm
less obaracter, which is attached to every
bottle. Those will always serve to distin
guish my medicine from imitations.

' pccially adapted tocultivation, as it ilheither
hilly nor stony, but gently rolling or fine table
u land. Around and through ibia properly there
are already some 30,000 seres under cultivation,
a nd its fertility has been established from the
'* crops produced. Upon this ehhject It is easy
•J to be fully satisfied. There is a ready cash
market for pioduce which is much better than

- similar quality is selling at much higher prices
. adjoining, and especially such aa contains coal,
i THE COAL—This in particular is the Coal
District, several veins underlayfhg the whole
. property, and the attention of miners, aml
f thoso acquainted with coal lands, ia specially
called to it. It has tho advantage of being the
nearest to the great lake market, with which
it will be connected byj'lhe Sunbury and Erie
Railroad now under contract and in course of
complelionTrom Erie to Kidgeway, with de
scending grade ihe whole way. file soil over

Isnd and other tounliies. The price per acre

immenao coal trade will soon open. Four coal
I companies huve already been started to work
' mil es in the vicinity, and there are now fifteen
' openings around Bt. Mary's.
' THE TIMBER, Stockholders also received.
' There is no reservation whatever cither of
limber or coal. It is very valusblo, and will
pay lor a great pait of the lar.d. On account
! of the excellence of streams there are fine op
-1 portunities for mill*.
FOR HEALTH, the location is much ro.
commended by Physicianr. The chills and
fevers are unknown, also pulmonary complaints,
being prolectod from the north east winds by
the Allcghanies. The water is pure and amongst
the best, ihe land abounding ou fine springs.
FOUR RAILROADS will shortly bo com
pleted connecting it by a direct communication
with Now V'ork, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Erie,
| Buffalo, and all the chics on the lakes. They
are ihe Sunbury and Erie, Ihe Alleghany
Valley, the Pittsburg and Buffalo, and the
Venango. Energetic exortiona are also being
made for the building of the Tyrone and Clear,
field, which also passes through this property.
The effect of this npon trade, and general de.
velopment, >s well as the coal, may be imagined.
The large ond flourishing town ot St. Mary's
is in tho centre of the tract, numbering near
3,000 inhabitants. It baa hotel., good public .
echools, saw and grist milla, etores, well stocked ■
and every thing desired. There are 335 half
acre lota in the town of Bt. Mary's which will
be rold and the proceeds equally divided amongvt
those who buy faims. Kidgeway the county
seat, where an extensive business is done ad.
joins the tract on the west. The whole district
is intersected by good turnpike, and other roada.
This is a rare opportunity offered to those
who wish to faim or have a good investment
for tho future. By making pioper inquiries,
and considering the advantages of good soil,
an abundance of coal, beallhfulness of cli
mate, Railroad facilities, and its location, •
correct judgment may be formed of its pre
sent advantages and ultimate increase.

This is to certify that, having been over
the tract owned by the Kidgeway Farm and
Coal Company and given it a thorough ex
amination, we find the representations ol that
Company to be correct. We find ihe soil lo
be the most fertile—the coal and iron ore to
lie in inexhaustible quantities, through the
whole district—the Farms in excellent order,
and the intelligence and prosperity of the
people to be of the most gratifying charac
ter. We know that there is'no healthier lo
cation in the State, and we consider it a most
desirable place of settlement.
We make this declaration, as we believe
Ihere may be many persons who are unac
quainted with ihese lands, and we are satis
fied, from our knowledge of the subject, that
information upon it will be a public benefit.
