TONICS WON'T DO.
rft HEY never did do more than give tempo
rary relief and they never will. It is be
cause they don't touch the cause of (he die
ease. The cause of all ague and billions dis
eases is the atmospheric poison called Mias
ma or Malaria. Neutralize this poison by
its
NATURAL ANTIDOTE,
and ail diseases caused by it disappears al
once. Rhodes' Fever and Ague Care it this
Antidote to Malaria, and moreover it ia a
perfectly harmless medicine. The certificate
of the celebrated chemist, I. R. Chilton, of
New York, to this effect, is attached to every
bottle ; therefore if it does no good it can do
no harm.
i This is more than oan be said of Qnioine,
Arsenic, or any tonic in existence, as tbeir
use is rninons to tbe constitution and brings
t on DUMB AGUE, which never allows a per
son to feel perfectly well for a single moment.
I In illustration of these troths I annex some
extracts from a letter jnst received from a
I Physician:
Georgetown, Ohio, March 17, '56.
I J it. A. RHODES, Esq.—Dear Sir: Yours of
- 2d inst. is at band. The Cure arrived late
■ last yesr and the difficulty in getting any one
, to try it was greatly increased from the fact
i that a remedy had been nflrodnced which
was growing in favor with the public, as be
ing tetter than using Quinine, —not knowing
■ I presume that the remedy they needed to
escape taking Quinine, contaiued the DRUG
ITSELF!
This remedy, (known es "Smith's Tonic,")
would invariably BREAK an agna, but it did
not CURE it, and it wonhl ofteu return with
renewed vigor. The one circnmstancq I
deemed in yonr favor, if I could institute a
test comparison between it aod yonr CURE.
Tbe following ia tbe result:
Three persons look your "Cure," all of
which ware caaes of "Quotidian Intermit
tent Fever," of many weeks standing. They
bad tried Quinine, and other remedies, ocos
slbnatly missing a chill, bnt it was, (as in all
such cases,) slowly wearing them out, and
laying the foundation of other alid severer
maladies. I did succeed in effecting a radi
cal cure of ell three of these casee with your
remedy, and they have not bed a obill since.
In all three of tbese oases the "Smith's Too
ic" bad been used, and would, as before sta
ted, break the chili, bnt after a period or two
had elapsed it wopld return.
I think there will be no difficulty now in
1 giving to yonr "Care" the ventage ground of
any other remedy now in use here, br. be.
WILLIAM BUCKNER, M. D.
RHODES' FEVER and AGUE CURE, or
Antidote to Malaria, the only harmless reme
dy in existence, is equally certain as a PRE
, VENTIVE. as a "CURE." Take it when
yon feel the obill coming on, and yon will
never have a single one.

TWENTY YEARS'EXPERIENCE
In tbe treatment of a class of diseases hith
erto neglected and imperfectly understood,
has er-aWed Dr. KINKELIN, Aether of A
work en Self Preservation, to prove bet man
tenths of tbe enoses of nervous debility, lo
cal and constitutienel wsakoese, mental and
physical suffering, are ftaoeeble to oetUiil
habits, forming the most secret yet deadh
ead land springe of domestic misery and
premature mortality.
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE,
There ie an evil habit sometimes indulged
in by boys, in solitude, and which, if ootid
formed in due lime, not only begeu serionl
obstacles to matrimonial happiness,but give*
rim to a aeries of protracted, insidious, end
devastating afflictions. Few ol thoUU who
give way to this pernicioui practice ewe
ware el tba censeqeenoes, mttM they fled
the nervous system shattered, feel strange
and unaccountable fooling*, nd vague fears
in the mind.
The unfortunate thai affected becomes fee
ble, ie enable le labor with aeouetomed vig
or, or to apply trie mind to study; bis eteplfi
lardy and week, he is dull, irresolute, Mid
engages iu his sport with less energy than
usual.
If be emancirate himself before the prac
tice has done its worst, mod enter matrimony,
his marriage is unfruitful, and hia sense fella
him that this ia caused by hia early follies
These are coneideratiooa which should awa
ken tbe attention of those similarly allueied
MARRIAGE
Requires the fulfillment of several conditions
in order that it may bs really the cause of
mutual happiness. Could the veil which
covers tbe origin of domestic wretchedness
be raised, and its true source in every in
stance disclosed—in bow many could it be
traced to physical disqualifications and their
attendant disappointments! Apply thoo while
it is yet time, in order to bavo yoor unstrung
and relaxed organization rebraeed, revivified
and strengthened.
REMEMBER,
He who plaeaa himself under Dr. Kinkelin's
treatment may religiously confide in his hon
or as a genteman, and rely upon the assur
ance, that the secrets ol Dr. Kfe patients will
never be disclosed.
Young man—let no false modesty deter
you from making your case Known to sne
who, from edocation and respetiabilily, can
befriend yon.
Too many think they will conceal the se
cret in their own hearts, and cure themaelvrs.
Alas! bow often is this a fatal delusion, and
how many e promising young man, wHb
might have been an ornament to society, baa
faded from the earth.
Strictures of the urethra are rapidly re
moved by the application of a new thera
peutical agent, used only by Dr. K. Weak
ness and Constitutional Debility promptly
cured, and lull vigor restored.
