THE AMERICAN OIL.
THE celebrated American Oil has been in use
1 long enough to test its powers. It is rec
ommended as one of the best, if not the very
best medicine for the cure of Rheumatism, Icy
sipeles, Tetter, Toothache, Cramps, Spasms,
cholic, burns and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy. croup and sore throat, intlamatton, &c.
Read the following certificate
111, - ;TisacoN, March 11, 1850
For the benefit of sufferers like we and oth
ers, I do freely declare the following facts
have suPred more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with must 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 slimy sufferings for so long
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's Oven for
the last five years. I never eould lied any relief
worth mentioning, until last November ; when I
met with the Extract of Anterican Oil, and to
my nu little surprise I got relieved of all in a
short time tied to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to call and see use upon the
matter; such.l can tell much more. I can say
it has dare 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.
JOUN BUUBAUGU
iIusTINGD.;, March 11, 1850,
I do hereby certify to the following facts.;—
That I have stiti;ired 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 ettbcts upon others indes
perate cases, I can freely recommend it, and be
lieve it to be worthull the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Cocrrs.
LEwisTowm, 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 Tot
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 snore 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 vvonde-ful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me inLewistown.

My wife has been perceptibly siukiug for some

At thin time Mow about two months) I heard your

not express to you the relief it alorded my distresaed
mind and the joy its pages imparted to my wife, ost
learning that the great diacovery of M. M. Deets

me which I little conceived was posnible. No Beau
