Improvement in Daguerreotypeing
VAN LOAN & CO., No. 118, Chesnut street,
Philadelphia, have, by recent discoveries in
their art, enabied themselves to take pictures ua
all times, with great certainty—as well in stormy
as clear weather—which are justly pronounced by
artists and scictitic men, UNRIVALLED, for depth of
tone and softness of light and shade. By working
themselves, they not only produce pictures which
are GOOD AND CHEAP!! but by far the hest
and cheapest which can he produced at any other
establishment. Their charge for pictures in hand
some improved cases, range from ONE DOLLAR
to three dollars, depending on the size of the pic
ture, being scarcely one-half the prices charged at
other establishments, for pictures of equal size—
but of inferior quality. Their Gsztenr OF POR
TRAITS, consisting of some hundreds, embraces a
collection of DISTINGUISHED AMERICANS
worthy the attention of visiters to their rooms,
which are OPEN Al'' ALL TIMES.
The collection which they had deposited in the
exhibition of the Franklin Institute, was constant
ly surrounded by dense crowds of admirers, who
wore loud in their praise of the artists' skill.
To guard against every possibility of mistake,
they guarantee every picture to be of the best ma
terials, and unless it is entirely satisfactory to the
customer, NO CHARGE IS MADE.
-zW When visiting the city call at their rooms,
whether you wish a Daguerreotype or not. The
admission is free, and you will be pleased with
your visit. Don't forget the number, 118 Chesnut
street, a few doors below Fourth.

eipelns, Tetter, Toothache, Cramps, Spasms,
cholic, burns and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy. croup and sore throat, inflamation, &c.
Read the following certificate:
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, I do freely declare the following facts :—I
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with most 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 with 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 age.
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the following facts:—
That I have suffered for live years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last Novembei I got a bottle of
the Extract of American 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 iJ, 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. Coors.
LEwisrown, 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 Tet
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off any 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.
