How important it is that yin► commence
without loss of time with BR ANDRETH
PILLS. They mildly but surely ri move all
impurities from the blood, and no case of
sickness can effect the human frame, that
these celebrated Pills tto nm relieve as much
as medicine can do. COLDS and COUGHS
are more benefiitted by the Brandreth Pills
than by Lozenges and Candies. Very well,
perhaps, as palliatives, but worth nothing RS
ERADICATORS of diseases from the human
system. The Brandreth Pills cure, they do
not merely relieve, they cure. Diseases,
whether chronic or recent, intectinus or oth
erwise, will certainly be cured by the use of
these all-sufficient Pills.
CURE OF A CANCEROUS SORE.
SING SING, Jantiwy 21, 1843.
DR. BENJAMIN BRANDRETH:
Owing to you a debt of gratitude that mo
sey cannot pay. I am induced to make a
public acknowledgment of the benefit my
wife has derived from your invaluable Pills.
About three years this winter she was taken i
with a pain n her acts; which soon became
very 1111101 inflamed, and swollen, so mach
that we became much alarmed, and sent
for the doctor. During his attendance the
pain and swelling increased to an alarming
degree, and in time weeks from its first
commencing it beceme a running sore. She
could get no rest at night the pain was so
great. Our first doctor attended her for six
months, and she received no benefit what
ever, the pain growing worse and the sore
larger all the time. He said if it was healed
up it would be her death, but he appeared
to be at a loss how to proceed, and my poor
wife still continued to suffer the most terrible
tortures. We therefore sought other aid,
in a Botannical doctor, who said when lie
first saw it that lie could soon cure the sore
and give her ease at once. To our surprise
lie gave her no relief, and acknowledged that
it quite baffled all his skill.
Thus we felt atter having tried during one
wholeyear the experience of two celebrated
physicians in vain, in absolute despair. My
poor wife's constitution rapidly failing in
the prime of her years from her continued
suffering. Under these circumstances we
concluded that we would try your Universal
Vegetable Pills, determined to fairly test
their curative effects. To my wife's great
comfort the first few doses afforded great re
lief of the pain. Within one week to the
astonishment of ourselves and every one who
knew the case, the swelling and the infla
motion began to cease so that she felt quite
easy, and would sleep comfortable, and sir,
after six weeks' use she was able to go thro'
the house and again attend to the manage
ment of her family, which she had not done
for nearly fourteen months. In a little over
two months from the time she first commen
ced the use of your invaluable Pills her nude
was quite sound, and her health better than
it had been in quite a number of years be
fore. I send you this statement atter two
years test of the cure, considering it only an
act of justice to you and the public et large.
We are with much gratitude,
l'H Y & ELIZA A. LITTLE.
r PS —The Botanical Doctor pronounced
the sore cancerous, and finally said no good
could be done, unless the whole of the flesh
was cut off and the bone scraped. Thank a
kind Providence, this made us resort to your
)'ills, which saved us from all further mis
ery, and for which we hope to be thankful.

Dear Sir:-1 procured one bottle of Dr.
Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, from
Thomas Read, Esq. of this place, and tried
it in a case of obstinate Asthma on a childof
Paul Schweble, in which many other reme
dies had been tried without any relief. The

Indian Vegetable Pills.
If, during the continuance of storms and
floods. the channels of
OUR MIGHTY RIVERS
become so obstructed as to afford an insuffi
cient outlet for the superabundant waters,
we can expect nothing less than that the
urrounding country will be
Overwhelmed with the Flood
In like manner with the human body—if
the skin, kidneys and bowels (the natural
outlets for useless and corrupt humors) be
come so obstructed as to fail in affording a
full discharge of those impurities which are
in all cases
THE CAUSE OF SICKNESS,
we surely can expect no other results than
that the whole frame will sooner or later b e
OVERU HELMED ITH DISEASE
As in the first place, if we would prevent
an inundation we must remove all obstruc
tions. in order that there may be no hind
rance to the free discharge of the supera
bundant waters. So, in the second place, if
we would prevent and cure disease, we must
open and keep open, all natural drains of the
W right's Indian Vegetable Pills of th
North American College of Health,
will be found one of the best it not the very
BEST MEDICINE IN THE WORLD
for carrying out this beautiful and simple
theory, - because they . compleatly cleanse the
stomach and bowels from all bilous humors,
and other impurity, and at the same time
promote a healthy discharge from the lungs,
skin and kidneys; consequently us all the
natural drains are opened,
OF EVERY NAME IS LITERALLY
DRIVEN FROIII THE BODY.
Caution.—As the great popularity and
consequent great demand for Wright's Indi

ous article for the genuine.
It should be remembered that all author

agency, signed be NVILLIAM WRIGHT, Vice
Prrsident of the North American College of
