Avaluable farm and tract of land situate on
the Big Aughwick Creek, in Huntingdon
county, containing by the official draft 227 acres,
but by subsequent re-surveys has been found to
contain a large excess over the official quantity,
originally surveyed in pursuance of a warrant
in the name of David Frank., and is now in the
occupancy of Simon Gratz. A good part of the
tract is improved bottom land of first rate quali
ty, and is well worth the attention of persons
wishing to purchase a good farm. It is but about
one and a half miles from Orbisonia, four miles
from Shirleysburg—within about eight miles
from the Pennsylvania Canal and the same dis

in the immediate neighborhood of several Iron

or WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH ME DOCTOR?
What is the cause of this sallow complexion,
jaundiced eye, depression of spirits, pain in the
side and shoulder, weariness of body, bitter taste
in the mouth ? Such is the inquiry, and such
the symptoms of many a sufferer. It is the
liver which is affected, and the Cholagogue is
the remedy, always successful in curing it.—
Try it, and judge for yourselves. For sale by
the above named agents.
BETTER DIE THAN LIVE IF I AM TO aR
tortured from day to day with this horrible A
gue, exclaims the poor sufferer whose life has
become a burden to him, from the racking par
oxysms of an intermittent, and whose confidence
in human aid is destroyed by the failure of rem
edies to produce the sromised relief. Such has
been the situation of thousands who are now re
joicing in all the blessings of health, from the
use of Dr. Osgood's Indian Cholagogue. In no
instance does it fail to effect a speedy and per-.!
manent cure. For sale b 3 above named agents.
'How few who think aright among the thinking
How many never think, hut only think they do.'
O Tug sentiment implied in the above ex
clamation is on no subject more fully exemplifi
ed than on that of health. But few give it a
single thought, and fewer still reflect upon it
with the observation and good sense which mat
ters of minor consequence receive. As oboe,.
vation teaches the fact that Dr. Osgood's Indian
Cholagogue is a never failing remedy in Fever
and Ague, good sense would surely indicate its
prompt and immediate use. For sale by the a
bove named agents. [July 9, 1850.

Mr. Johnson was rescued from death's door
by the use of Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup—hav
ing been prostrated all winter, His case was
witnessed by several of the most respectable
citizens of this state, whose names are append

Bristol, Bricks eounty,Pa.
Dn. J. H. SCaNaCK, —DearSir,—l am induced
from a sense of justice towards you, as well as
duty to the public,
to make known one of the
most hopeless and extraordinary cures, in nip
own person, that you have ever had the pleasure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to por
tray, in truthful colors, my consuming disease,
and the remarkable chance which Schneck's
Pulmonary Syrup effected in so short a time.
I was taken sonic time previous to December
1848, with a heavy cold, producing incessant
coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the
right side, pains in the back, under the right
shoulder, having heavy night sweats, high fevers
&c., which made me so nervous and restless as
to produce utter prostration. AII theseaftlictions
Increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing worse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated,
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melon
choly depression. My physician examined me,
and informed me I had an alums on the upper
part of my liver and lower part of one of my lungs.
Notwithstanding all this skill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to I. ave nothing undone, and called
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case on ex
tremely critical one. Ile thought I was in im
minent danger--sayingrny disease ..was one the
is seldom if ever cured ."
' All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing ; ex pectora
Ling from a pint to a quart of naucenus matter
every 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my diocese. A t this stage
of my illness, my friend. in Bristol suggested
thous° of Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup, but know
l ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining rosary from the afflicted, I hee-
Rated. My friends, however, insisting, I was
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a change for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I was so far relieved.as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced my right hung af
fected, but in a healing coalition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
myself once more restored to health. I will fur
ther add, that the consulting physician, seeingthe
! action of the medicine, fully approved its use
To give the reader some idea of the severity
of my cose, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health woe 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufieringa to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
, ed 174 pounds, thus gaining in a few months 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
! weight. It is not in my power to convey, in the
'Mort space of this certificate, the convincing
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the agonizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to
cull on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt'. hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing (very particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
symptom. of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately-
His skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of diseased parts of the lungs
by means of his Stethescope, added to my own
miraculous cure, fully satisfiesme, that had I ear

which make us all naturally skep.
tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine when
first introduced. I resisted the importunities of
my friends till almost too late; and yielded only
as a last resort, resolved to kill or cure." 'l'o
those afflicted as I have been, again let me say,
hesitate no longer, my own case is presented to
you as convincing evidence, that when all else
fails your last hope is in Dr, Sehneck's Pulnionic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who inay be strangers to me, appended to this err
tificate the names of gentlemen well known in
' the walks of public and private life, and whose
standing in society admits of no cavil or doubt in
regard to their testimony.

We the undersigned, residents of Bristol and
vicinity, are well acquainted with Mr. Johnson,
and know him to have been afflicted as he states
above. We also know that he used Schneck's
Pulmonic Syrup, and have every reason to be
, lieve, that to this medicine he owes his preserva
tion from a premature grave. The known in
tegrity and posi'ion in society of Mr. Johnson

the truth of this statement.

" DAYTON. May I, 1847.
"DR. A. M. MAURICF.4I)-My Dear Sir: ' Th.
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came
solely to hand. I would not have troubled yon with
these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, for myself and wife, to give utterance
to oar sincere and heartfelt emotions.
"My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her great an
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement; every successive one more and more
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in im
minent danger, and which was, on the last occasion,
despaired of. I supposed that this state of things was
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two months) I heard your
book highly spoken of, as containing some matters
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I can
not express to you the relief it aTorded my distressed
mind and the ley its pages imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Demo
=aux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No peen.
niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
am under to you for having been the means of im
parting to on the matters contained in' The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But for
this, ero another year would have passed over my
head, in all human probability my wife would have
been in her grave, and my children loft motherless."
