Vor the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, I do freely declare the following facts
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with roost desperate pain in the
stomach, which at times seemed to expand as if
it would burst; also for many years I was ter
ribly troubled wills cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings for so long a
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sleep for
the last five years. I never could find any relief
worth mentioning, until last November, when I
met with the Extract of American Oil, and to
my no little surprise I got relieved of all in a
short time and to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has done wonders on others around me in va
rious complaints. If ever an article was put
out honestly, this is one. I know it sells rap
idly here. No family in the land will be with
out it when they once know its use.
111:N . 1:IN“DON, March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the lollowing . facts :
That I have suffered for live years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, awl never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last Novembet I got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
JO a short time. From what I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others hides
perate cases, I can freely recommend lA, and be
lieve it to be worthall the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do. all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Cones.
LEWISTOWN, March 1850.
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery.
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tat
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time I had no relief for more than a few
days at a time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used it inwardly
and outwardly, and to my great astonishment
and my neighbors, I got clear of it in a short
time, and to this time I have noticed its won
drous effects on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonderful thing for many complaints.
I invite all who choose to visit me in Lewistown.

(non 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 some time pr.tvious 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 mid restless es
to produca utter prostration. All theseafilictions
Increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. Be
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing,
that medical skill could suggest, but wit Lent ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing worse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
tor' pains severe; and, extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly depression. My physician examined me,
and informed me I had on obsess on the upper
part of ray liver and lower part °lone of my longs.
Notwithstanding all thisskill,l grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to tile,
1 concluded to I. eve nothing undone, and called
in n consulting physician, who fully concurred
with tiny own, and pronounced my case an ex

during sufferings that made life burdensome; ex
periencing great pain in coughing ; expectora
ring from a pint to a quart of nauceous matter
ivery 21 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. At this stage
;if my i Incas, my friends in II: istol suggested
the use of Schneck's Pulinonic Syrup. but know
Mg the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the afflicted, 1 hes
itated. 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 1 was so far relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. Ile

fected, but in a healing coalition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 11 bottles, and found
myself once more restored t r health. 1 will fur
titer add, that the consulting physician, seeing! he
action of the medicine, fully approved its use
To give the reader some ides of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual o eight in
health tuns 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufferings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) 1 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 convoy, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincin g
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the ai,onizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to
call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt's hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing every particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitary
symptoms 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
tniracu'ous cure, fully satisfiesme, that had I ear
eer submitted myself to his care, I should have
moped much suffering ; but restrained by doubts
and suspicion, which make us all naturally skep.
tient 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." To
hose afflicted as 1 have been, again let me say,

you as convincing evidence, that when all else
