Notice to Females,
John Bull'e Sarsaparilla in one of the greatest female
medicines now in existence. In those numerous mules
where the constitution is debilitated, the nervous energy is
lessened, When the efforts of nature are weak and deficient,
or are profuse and overwrought, when the face is pale and
colorless, the strength feeble and yielding, the spirit trom
bled and depressed, the health broken, mind shaken, and
consequently the happiness destroyed—then Bull'a Sarsa
parilla is a sovereign remedy. It assists nature in the per
formance of her duty, braces the whole system, renews
permanently the natural energies, removes obstruction.,
checks excesses, creates pure and healthy bin.), and imparts
health end happiness. Wert ladies generally to adopt the
use of thin Medicine, we would see for less suffering, disease
and unhappiness among them than now exista,liealth would
take the place of disease, the rosy check would succeed the
pallid face; we should have smiles instead of team, and per
a happy long life hashed of one cut short by disease,
or made naiserable by continued suffering and affliction.
At that critical period termed the turn of life," which la
often attended with KO much danger, Bull's Sarsaparilla in
found to exert a moat bouoticial effect. All ladies approach•
hag this crisis, should he apprised of this fact, and avail
themselves of this valuable... Medicine.
How we all admire a clear, beautiful, white skin, and e
nay colored chek. lion often do we tee persons, not pos-
sessing this "desideratum eo devoutly to be wished," re
sorting to eustnetles, lotions, washes, paints, and coloring
materials, to restore to them a semblance of what disease
ban deprived them of, and that, too ' with great injury to
the skin. Dull's Sarsaparilla is the best Cosmetic known.
It beautifies the skin Ly removing every particle of morbid
and diseased mutter from the blood, making it pure, heal
thy and vigorous, giving activity to every minute vessel,
and changing the yellow and dark countenance to the
bloom and freshness of youth. Ladles, abandon the use of
panda and mixtures, and use Bull's Sarsaparilla, the only
effectual remedy. A word to the wise is sufficient," and
a hint is enough for the ladle.

For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth-

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 lust 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, 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 st, 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. COUTS.
LEWISTOWN, March 1830

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 or 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 wonderful thing for many complaints.

all times, with great certainty—as well in stormy
as clear weather—which are justly pronounced by
artists and seletific 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 !! but by far the best
and cheapest which can be produced at any other
establishment. Their charge for pictures in hand
some improved cases, range from ONE DOLLAR
to three dollars, depending on the sine of the pie

other establishments, for pictures of equal size—
' but of inferior quality. Their GALLERY OF POR-

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

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.
