HUNTINGDON, March 1 1, 1850.
For 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 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 none wonders on others around mein 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.
11.1,criNr.notv, March I l',
• I do hereby certify to the following facts :
That I have suffered for five years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last November 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 it, find 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. COUTO.

1 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 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 wonde7ful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me inLewistown.

Improvement in Daguerreotypeing
VAN LOAN & CO., No. 118, Chesnut street,
Philadelphia, have, by recent discoveries in
their art, enabled themselves to take pictures at
all times, with great certainty—as well in stormy
as clear weather—which are Justly pronounced by
artists and scietilie men, UNRIVALLED, for depth of
tons and softness of light and shade. By working
themselves, they not only produce pictures which
are GOOD AND CHEAP ! but by far the best
and cheapest which can 1)0 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 GALLERY OF POR
TRAITS, consisting of some hundreds, embraces a
collection of DISTINGUISHED AMERICANS
worthy the attention of visitors to their rooms,
which are OPEN AT 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
were 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.
eir When visiting the city call at their rooms,
whether you wish a Daguerreotype or not. The
admission is free, and you will bo pleased with
your visit. 'Don't forget the number, 118 Chesnut

"DR. A. M. MAURIOEAU—My Dear Sir: ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came
safely to hand. I would not have troubled you with
these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, for myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.

three years or more, in consequence of her great an

confinement; every successive one more .d more

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 cue. On its receipt and perusal, l can
not express to you the relief it a:forded my distressed
mind and the joy its pages imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Delo

me which I little conceived wan possible. No pecu.

am under to you for having been the means of im

to me. If I express myself rather warmly,you will
see that I can not do so too warmly, when I inform
you of the extent to which I have, through it, been
benefited. I will date my situation when I obtained
your book through the mermt curioeity I look upon
it as one of the most fortunate events of my life. I

me about where 1 wee at the beginning of each year;
and that only, with the most stinted economy, min
cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this
constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon
my health: I felt less capable to endure its continu
ance, while I felt the necessity of perseverance.
This constanr,unceming struggle on my part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi•

years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of
