No. 37. Have you the Fever and Ague?—lf
co, then be persuaded to try Dr. J. W. Coop
er's Vegetable Compound' Fever and Agile
Pills, prepared only by C. P. Hewes, as they
will positively perform a perfect cure in three
days time. We ourselves know of a number of
eases in which they have been used, and we
never knew them to fail; therefore, we con
scientiously recommend them to our friends as
being the very best medicine ever discovered
for the cure of this distressing disease. These
pills aro for sale by T. Read & Son, of this
place. Price $1 per box. He has also con
stantly on hand a supply of Dr. J. W. Cooper's
Vegetable Worm Powders for the destruction
of worms, and from the many applications of
our friends to give notice through the press of
the wonderful benefits their children have de
rived from the use of them, we have no doubt
they are really a superior article; they aro also
pleasant for children to take. lso for sale by
the same, Dr. J. W. Cooper's Vegetable Cough
or Consumptive syrup. We ourselves can tes
tify to the great superiority of this medicine in
the cure of a stubborn and obstinate cough of
several years standing. If you have a cough,
try this syrup, and our word for it, if it does
not cure you, nothing will.

posed of Castor oil, Calomel, &c., are not aware,

“Thousands upon thonsands ofour youth, by era

been led into the habit of self-pollution without
realizing the sin and consequence upon- them

thousands, who are raising families have been

can be done so to enlighten and influence the
