TIIE AMERICAN OIL.
rpHE celebrated American Oil has been in use
1 long enough to test its powers. It is rec
ommended us one of the best, if not the very
best medicine for the cure of Rhi,umatism, Icy
sipelas, Tetter, Toothache, Cramps, Spasms,
chalk, bums and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy, croup and sore throat, inflamation, &c.
Read the following certificate: •
llurnsc:nos,March 11, 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 wry 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 respeetfirtly in
vite all who choose to call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can soy
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, March 11, 1850.
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, and be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it wilt do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Coors.
LEwtsrowN, 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 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
doassure my friends nod the public that it is
indeed a wonde,ful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me in Lewistown.

WHY SO OFTEN UNHAPPY•
THE CAUSES AND THE REMEDY!
MAN! and many a wife endures years of bodily
suffering and of mental anguish, prostrate and help
less, embittering her life, that of her husband, and
hazarding the future welfare of her children, arising
from causes which, if known, would have spared the
aaffering, the anguish to the wife, and to the hue
band embarrassments and pecuniary difficulties hay
leg their origin in the mind being weighed dawn and
harassed in consequence of the sickness of the cum`
panion of hie bosom.
How important that the caries should be known
to every wife, to every husband, that the dreadful
and harrowing consequences to the health and hap
piness of both may be avoided! Life is too short and
health too precious to admit any portion of the one to
be spent without the full enjoyment of the other.
The timely possession of a little work entitled as
follows has been the means of saving the health and
the life of thousands, as over
TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND
copies have been sold since the first edition watt it.
The author has been induced to advertise it by
the urgent and pressing request of those who hare
been indebted to its publication for al they hold dear
(that all may have an opportunity of obtaining it), and
who have favored him with thousand. of letters of
encomium, some of which are annexed to the &dyer.

SICKLY AND UNHAPPY WIVES,

DAYTON, May 1, 1847.
"Do. A. M. Maunrecaa—My Dear Sir ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' foe
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 ant impelled by a sense
of gratitude, for 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
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement every successive ono more and more
debilitated end prostrated her, putting her life In lat.
minent danger, and which was. on the last OCCIIiOa,
despaired of. I supposed that this Mete of things was
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two months) I beard yew
book highly spoken of, as containing some matters
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I ears
not express to you tha relief it afforded my distressed
mind and the joy its page. imparted to my wife, a•
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Dana.
meaux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No peen.
nary consideration can ever repay the obligation. I
am under to you for having been the means of im
parting to us the matters contained in The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' 13ut for
this, ere another year would here passed ever any
head, in all human probability my wife would have
been in her grave, and my children left motharleaa."

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

"Thin constant, unceasing struggle on my part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi

years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of
course incapable of taking the charge and manage
