But alas how short was its stay,
It has passed away like a flower

And the winter of my sorrows were o'er.
Then my heart would greatly rejoice,
In perfect love, and joy and peace;

My heart would join the happy throng,

And the winter of my troubles were o'er.

these gentlemen arrived there, they would take
a light carriage, drawn by six Mexican mules,
and run fifty miles a day until they overtook
him. These gentlemen have no government
employment, and go as amateur travellers to
see the grand features of their own country, and
to form their own opinions of the practicability
of one of the noblest works which the mind of
man ever conceived. Mr. Richard H. Kern,
St. Taplin, and the rest of the expedition or

Hobensacit's Worm Syrup,
An article founded upon Scientific Principles,
compounded with purely vegetable substances,
being perfectly safe when taken, and has never
been known to fail in curing the most obstinate
case. Worms can never exist when this remedy
is once used, from the fact that it only destroys
them but removes all the slime and mucus w Welt
The Tape Worm
Thin worm is the most difficult ono to destroy
of all that inhabit the human body. It grows to
an almost indefinite length, and becoming so
coiled and fastened in the intestines and stomach
as to produce Fits, St. Vitus' Dance, &e., which,
is the cause of many going to the grave, not be
lieving that these complaints bars their origin
from the Tape Worm; consequently they do not
use the proper medicines for their disease. No
those who are afflicted with this nand fun to
health, I recommend the use of my Worm Sy
rup, and Liver Pills; the Syrup to ho taken in
doss of two table-spoonstuls three times a day,
than take from .5 to 8 of my Liver Pills, to dis
loge and pass the worm. By strictly following
these directions, the most obstinate cases of Tape
Worm can he speedily cured.
Round or Stomach Worm,
This worm is usually found in the small intes
tines, and is the worm most common to children,
yet is not entirely continell to them, as adults
have frequently been known to suffer with then,.
The symptoms most promineht while affected with
this worm, are hardness and fullness of the belly
slimy stools, looseness or the bowels, picking at
the nose, a blueish streak under the eyes,
If you, or any of your children have any of the
above symptoms, llobensack's Worm Syrup can
safely be depended upon—by using it you have a
certain, safe, and. speedy cure; and if after using
it according to the directions, the patient is net
restored to health; and the worms thoroughly
eradicated from the system, you can rest assured
there is no remedy beyond the grave, as for fail,
there is no such word as fail with those who use
my worm Syrup.
Ascarides, or Small Thread Worms.
These worms, to which the human system is
liable, are the most troublesome of all others.—
They are generally to be found in the rectutn,and
if allowed to remain, from the irritation they pro
duce, lay the foundation for set ions disorders,
such as intlamation of the bowels, and other de
rangements of the stomach. The hest and safest
medicine that can be used is Hobensack's Worm
Syrup. Such is the astonishing power of my
medicines over Ascarides, that I defy any 3ne to
produce a case where my worm Syrup and Liver
Pills ore recommended to be used they will not
cure. All that is necessary is to use the Syrup
in accordance with directions on each bottle; and
in case a gentle purgative is required in order to
allay the irritation they produce, the Liver Pills
by their sympathising action and healthy opera
tion upon the bowels, is the most pleasant medi
cine that can be taken.
Hobensack's Liver Pills.
No part of the system is more liable to disetso
than the Liver, it being supplied with numeromi
blood-vessels and nerves, and it diseased, the
blood of course flowing through all parts of the
body produces Liver Complaints, Jaundice.

Is attended with chills, succeeded by fever, se
vere pains in the region of the Liver, vomiting,
bitter tastes, yellow furred tongue, pulse full and
bounding, the pain in the side is increased by
pressure, should the left lobe be affected, the pain
is generally in the left shoulder, with a short, dry
cough, the skin becoming of a sallow appearance,
and the stools clay colored. This disease can be
cured by the use of Hobensack's Liver Pills, as
they act directly upon the scat of the disease, and
then operating upon the bowels they expel all the
corruw and vitiated matter from the system.
The symptoms of Dyspeptia, and its various
diseases ore dizziness in the head, heartburn, op
pression after eating meals, sournese arising tram
the stomach, &c., and sometimes general languor
of the whole body, from this it will be seen that
the diseaSe owes its origin to a disorganized
state of the Liver and Stomach. Ilobensack's
Liver Pills is the very medicine to effect a per
manent and lasting cure, as they act by changing
the certain morbid actions of the system into a
healthy action, and rendering the blood pure and

it is free from all objectionable muter. and no
parent, however fastidious, ran object to placing

complaints treated of, and 'with too little breath
to puff,' and 'too little presumption to impose,' he
has offered to the world at the merely nominal
price of 25 cents. the fruits of some twenty years
most successful practice."—lieraN.

•‘Thou sands upon thousands ()four youth, by evil
example and the influence of the passions, have
been led into the habit of self-pollution without
realising the sin and consequence upon them
selves and their posterity. 'lice constitution of
thousands, who are raising families have been
enfeebled. if not broken down, and they do not
know the cause or the cure. Any thing that
eau he done so to enlighten and influence the
public mind as to cheek, and ultimately to re
move this wide-spread source of human wretch
edness, would confer the greatest blessing next
to the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present and
coming generation. Intemperance, (or the use
of intoxicating drinks,) though it has slain thou
sands upcn thousands, is not a greater scourge to
the !musts race. Accept sty thanks en behalf
of the afflicted, and, believe me, your co-worker
in the good work you are so actively engaged in."
