It beautifies the skin by removing every particle of morbid

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
pipelas, Totter, Toothache, Cramps, Spasms,
duffle, burns and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy. croup and sore throat, inflamation, &c.
Read the following certificate:
Huvrolooo's 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 my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings l'or so long a
time. I could do no business fdr the last ten
years, nor had I a single aood night's sleep for
the last live 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 ma 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.
EIIINTINCIDON, March 11, 1350.
1 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 Novernbei 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 eflhets upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend tt, and be
lieve it to be worthall the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Coons.
LewisrowN, March 1850.
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with u clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the. Ery.
sipelus 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 tima I had no relief for more than a few
(lays at a-time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used 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 &feets on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonderful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me in Lewistown.

these few lines, but that I out impelled by a sense
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
"My wife has been perceptibly sinking for come
three years or more, in consequence of her great an.
guish and suffering some months belbre and during
confinement; every successive one more and morel
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in in,
tuinent danger, and which was. on the last
despaired of. I supposed that this state of things waS
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two menthe) I heard your
book highly spoken of. na containing some matters
reaching my case. Ott its receipt and perusal, I can
nut 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. Des,.
meaux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No peen•
niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
am under to you for having been the means of in,
parting ,orri to us the runners contained in' The Married

this, ere another year would have passed over toe
