punted by doubtful certificates (their chief
value) and claim to be universal remedies, cu.
ring all maladies—a burlesque on continue
sense. As the discoverer of this Salt solemnly
protests against having it placed on the catego
ry of frauds and inqisitions, he has resolved
that it shall go forth to the world like the pure
gold dollar, wit no other passport then its own
true value. .If the public find it geeuine they
will receive it—if spurious they will reject and
condemn it. Instead of its beings panacea for
all ills it has control over but one ill—lass bet
one aim and accomplishes but ono thing, to
wit.; subdues infittnanatory diseases—whatever
he their torts or locality, whether in the head,
throat, chest., abdomen, extremetics or skin,
When the discoverer, after a long series of
laborious told costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his conviction that the Antiphlo
gistic Salt, which he now has the happiness to
present to the Americanpiddle was
for Blood-letting, Leeches and Blisters, Isis
mind was so agitated that he could not sleep.
for many nights. The cause of his agitation
was the striking fact that the manner of its op
eration, like that of the virus in vaccination,
could not be explained upon any known princi
ple. plow, in what way, it so effectually sub
dues inflammatory diseases others, was
at first wholly inexplicable; but on further ex
periment it was proved that by its power over
the veins, arteries and glands, it equalizeS the
h Joists of the body, the want of an equilibrium
in which is the sole cause of inflammation. It
exerts like the vaccine matter, an extraordina
ry influence over the circulation—resulting in
a gradual decline of inflammation ns indicated
by the pulse which soon resumes its natural
state, as the pails and heat disappear. Such in
its potency, that like the virus just mentioned,
it requires merely what adheres to the point of
a quill dipped
in a solution of it to affect the
entire system—but must be instantly used to
prevent decomposition, and secure its full vir
tue. Three quilts in acute, and two in chronic
disease every 24 hours, tin the beat and fever
have subsided and a perfect cure is eneted.—
When it takes the place of leeches, stimulating
ointments and blisters in local inflammation,
as Brain Fever, Croup, TJothaelie. Pleurisy,
Sc., its mode of administration is tnao-fuld.
(See directions for dissolving, &e.)
Star The peculiar excellence of this Salt is,
that without the useless loss of blood anal
strength, it effectually cures inflammatory dis
eases (no others) by producing an equilibrium
of all the fluids of the body and as consequent
uninterrupted circulation. The following alit
