1 do hereby certify to the following facts :
Thet I haVe suffered for five years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, iOr a few
days, only. Last November I gut a bottle of
the Extract of Ainerican Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
in a short time. From what I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend t , , and be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Corrs. '
LEWISTOWN, Mitch 1850.
I never before gave a eertif;cate, but this.l
give with o clear conscience for the benefit - of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tet
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. Lest 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.

Increased with such •iolence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and preficrthed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but witl.mit ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing w arse, ,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dig
ease increased. My cough became distressing ; '
my pubis severe; rind, extremely debilitated, I
lust all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly slept ession. My physician examined me,
and informed me I had Ms abseils on the upper
pail of my liver and lower port of one of my lunge.
Notwithstanding all this etc ill.l grew worse, but
with tha t tenacity with' which we all cling to life, ,
I concluded to I. aye nothing undone, and called
in a consuiting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case ars ex-1
tretnely critical one. Ile thought I was in im
minent danger--saying my disease "was one this
is seldom if aver cured. ' All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
poriencing great pain in coughing; expecte],
ting from a pint to a quart of nnuceous matter
avery 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my diocese. A t this singe
of my i lness, my friends in Mated suggested
the use of Schneck's Put mome Syrup, but know
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of dreiniag money from the afflicted, I he.
itated. My friends, however, insisting, I wee
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used several bottles before I heti any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a charge for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I was so fur relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneek in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced soy right lung af
fected, hut in a healing COll lition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
myself once more restored t s health. I will fur
then add, that the consulting physician. seeingthe
action of the inedirine, fully approved its use
give the reader some idea of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufierings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
041 the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds,thus gaming in a few month. 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my power to convey, in the
short apace of this certificate, the convincing
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the atomizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; hut to those who will take the trouble to
call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt. hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing every particular.
In conclusion, I dean it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
eymptome of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour,but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately-
Ilia 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
mirscu'oue cure, fully satisfies me, that had I ear
' eer eubmitted myself to hie care, I should have
romped 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
those afflicted as I have been, again let me say,
' hesitatt no longer, my own case is presented to
you as convincing evidence, that when all else
fails your last hope is its Dr, Schtteck'sPulprionic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who may be strangers to me, appended to this eel
tificate the names of gentlemen well known in
the walk. of public arid private life, and whose
standing, its society admits of no cavil or doubt in
regard to their testimony.

SICKLY AND UNHAPPY WIVES:

"DAYTON, May 1, 1841.
"DR. A. M. Maenicrau—My Dear Sir: ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, Cams
safely to band. I would not have troubled you with
these few linos, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
" My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her great an.
gnish 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. (supposed that this state of things win
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 aivrded my distressed
mind and the joy its pages imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Deso.
mann provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No pecu-
niary consideration can ever repay the obligetionc I
em under to you for having been the means of in,
parting to us the matters contained in The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' lint for
this, ere another year would have passed over my
head, in all human probability my wife would have
been in her grave, and my children left motherless."

see that I can not do ao too warmly, when I inform
you of the extent to which I have, through it, been
benefited. I will state my situation when I obtained
your book through the merest curiosity I look upon
it as one of the most fortunate events of my life. I
had been married some ten•yearn, and was the father
of seveochildren. I was long straggling unceasingly
to the end that 1 might gain n moderate competency,
but the remelts of my utmost exertions at the end left
me about where I woe at the beginning of each year;
and that only, with the most stinted economy, gra

constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon
my health: 1 felt leas capable to endure its continu
