' Tis Trate is the place to purchase Spring and
Summer Clothing, cheaper than you can buy in the
city of Philadelphia.
The Proprietor of COSTVME HALT," has just
arrived from the East with the largest assort
ment of Spring and Summer Clothing, suita
ble for men and boys, ever offered to the good
citizens of Huntingdon county.
He does not wish to offend his friends by of
ering to give them any article of Clothing they
may desire, but he will sell so cheap that it will
mount to the same thing in the end.
From the Laboratory of the Celebrated
Dr..). S. ROSE, of Philada.
R. ROSE'S ALTERATIVE, For the rad
ical cure of Scrofula, Diseases of the
Bone, stubborn Ulcers, Liver Complaints, old
Eruptions, Rheumatism, and every Disease
arising from an impure state of the blood.
The great power of thts valuable Medicine
being now fully established by the many cures
it has effected of CONSUMPTION, BRON
CHITIS, GLANDULAR and LIVER DIS
EASE, SCROFULA, HIP-JOINT affection,
RHEUMATIC, SYPHILITIC, and all impu
rities of the blood, has sufficiently proven to
the public its superior panaceal power above
all nostrums now in use. Price $l.
DR. ROSIt'S DYSPEPTIC COMPOUND.
Tits Lives, being the largest gland in the
human body, is more frequently deranged in
its healthy action than any other. The con
sequences of this derangement are first Dys
pepsia, known by costiveness belching up of
wind, sour stomach, and sometimes Diarrhwa
or looseness of the bowels, head-ache, nervous
feelings, cold feet, wakefulness, nod variable
appetite, &c. Secondly, if the above symp
toms are allowed to go on long without this
Medicine, (which will always cure or remove
them,) then follows debility of the lungs and
predisposition to consnmption.
Dr. Rose has been called on by over THREE
THOUSAND CASES within the last few years, and
many of them had tried the various bitter com
pounds to their delusion; fortunately the most
were in time and were soon cured by the above
compound, which contains no mercury, and
does not iujure, but always improves the con
stitution, as thousands can testify. Price 50
DR. ROSE'S CARMINITIVE BALSA M
This beautiful preparation has been used by
me in a full practice of thirty years in the city
of Philadelphia, and is a never-failing renidy for
eholera-morbus, dysentery, bowel complaint,
flatulency, &c. Price 25 cents.
DR. ROPE'S VEGITABLE VERMIFUGE.
This compound having been used by me in a
full practice of twenty-six years, with the most
beneficial results in cases of worms, has so well
established its superiority above most other
worm medicines that the demand has increased
beyond all calculation. All medicines should
be prepared by a physician and chemist. It is
true that many articles are now sold as good
for worms, but it should be remembered that
many are too powerful for the constitution of
young children. Price 2r, cents.
DR. ROSE'S FAMILY OR SANITIVE
These pills are confidently recommended for
Dyspepsia, disease of the Liver, Costiveness,
and for the constant use of families, as they are
mild, and certain in their operation, causing no
pain or uneasiness, leaving the bowels perfect
ly free from costiveness. Price 25 cents.
DR. ROSE'S EXPECTORANT, OR COUGH
SYRUP, a certain cute for all diseases of the
lungs, spitting of blood, bronchitis, asthma,
colds, coughs, and consumption. This syrup
has no equal. Fifty cents and $1 per bottle.
DR. ROSE'S HAIR TONIC,
This invaluable compound for the hair has
been used and highly recommended by the late
and truly great Dr. Physic, of Philadelphia.—
Price 50 cents.
DR. ROSE'S CROUP OR HIVE SYRUP.
There has been many remedies compounded
for the cure of Croup or Hives. The disease
Is particularly prevalent among children, and
often fatal ; but as I have never seen a case
terminate fatally or continue long where this
syrup was used, I can recommend it with the
highest confidence. Price 25 cents. See di
The afflicted are invited to call upon the
Agent, and procure (gratis) one or the Doctor's
pamphlets giving a detailed account of each
remedy and its application.
These medicines are in high repute, and can
be relied upon as suiting the diseases for which
they are recommended, as they are the result of
an extensive practice for the last thirty years
in the city of Philadelphia.

The Louisville Courier thus speaks of Bull's Sarsaparilla:
We have hero shown, by Mr. John Bull, proprietor of
that world-renowned prepnration, Sidra Fluid Extract of
Sarsaparilla," an original, genuine, and beautiful letter,
addressed to him by the accomplished lady of one of the
most eminent old physicians In the West, giving a detailed
account of one of the most astonishing cures on record, Per
formed alone by the use of "Bull's Sarsaparilla."
This most excellent and charming lady had long suffered
from prolapses uteri, fluor alb., piles, and chronic diseases
of the stomerh and digestive organs, and derangement of
the allele system, attended with distressing cutaneous erupt
Ow. Bir k headache, and violent attache of cramp. After
exhausting all of her husband's skill, and applying to many
celetrated medical gentlemen, both at home and abroad,
and also using front quantities of "Townsend's Sarsapa
rilla," without the slightest relief, she was induced to use
“Jan 'Mire Sareurrarilla.” And what was the happy
reffultl After the U. of a feW bottles, ft perfect and won

Notice to Females.
John Bull's Sarsaparilla is one of the g reatest female
OIvtIiVITIOS now in existents°. In those numerous mutes
where the eonstitution is debilitated, the nervous energy IS
peened, when the efforts of nature are weak and deficient,
or are profuse .d overwrought, when the face in pale and
colorless, the strength feeble and yielding, the spirit trou
bled a n d 1111/POSSOII. the health broken, mind ehaken, and
consequently the bappinraa destroyed—then Bull'e Berner
parille ie e sovereign remedy. It *mists nature in the per
formance of her duty, braces the whole eyetem, renews
permanently the natural energice, removes obetructions,
eXCPSPP. enmtes pure and healthy blood, and imparts
health awl happiness. Were ladies generally to adopt the
use of tide Medicine, we would see far leali suffering, disease
and unhappiness mining then, than now exists, health would
lake the phi, of disease, lb. rosy cheek would succeed the
Ted lid facet we should have smiles instetul of tears, and per
halm a happy long life inetoad of one cut abort by disease,
or made miserable by continued mirroring and affliction.
At that critical period termed the "turn of life," which is

found to exert it most beneficial effect. All ladies approach

A BEAUTIFUL CLEAR SKIN.
HOW wt. all choir.. a clear, beautiful, white skin, and a

sensing Ibis "desideratum so devoutly to be wished," re
sorting to ....sntelics, lotions, washes, paints, and coloring
materials to restore to them a semblance of what disease
has deprived them of, and that, too, with great Injury to

It beautifies the skin by removing every particle of morbid

HUNTINGDON, 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 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
•he 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.
licx•risovox, 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 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. COUTB.
LnwiwrowN, Murch 1850
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for th 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

terials, and unless it is entirely satisfactory to the
