'piney. croup and sore throat, inflamation, &c.•
Read the following certificate:
FittNTINGMIN, 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 use.
HUNTINGDON, AfarCll 11, 1850.
1 do hereby certify to the following. facts :
That I have suffered for five years past with
pain in my bark, 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 surpriseit 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 ir, 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.
Lawisrowx, March 1850.
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 wonde-ful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me in Lewistown.

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 arc justly pronounced by
artists and scietitic 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 11 but by fitr the best
and cheapest which can bo 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 me—
but of inferior quality. Their GALLERY or Pi-At
rium, consisting of some hundreds, embraces' a
collection of DISTINGUISHED AMEllir ANS
worthy the attention of visiters 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 itgain'st every possibilitionnistake,
;hey guarantee every picture to be of the best eta
&Hills, and unless it is entirely satisfactory to the
;ustomer, NO CHARGE IS MADE.
Cr When visiting the city call at their rooms,
whether you wish a Daguerreotype or not. The
admission is frt.°, and you will he pleased with
your visit. Don't forget the number, 118 Chesnut
