ANY medicines offered for sale are a.m.
panied by doubtful certificates (their chief
value) and claim to be universal remedies, cu.
ring all maladies—a burlesque on common
sense. As the discoverer of this Salt solemnly
protests against having it placed on the catego
ry of frauds and impositions, he has resolved
that it shall go forth to the world like the pure
gold dollar, wit' no other passport than its own
true value. If the public find it genuine they
will receive it—if spurious they will reject and
condemn it. Instead of its being a panacea for
all ills it has control over but one ill,—has but
outs aim and nceoniplishes bat one thing, to
wit ; subdues inflammatory diseases—whatever
be their form or locality, whether in the head,
throat, dick, abdomen, extrenieties or skin.
When the discoverer, after a long series of
laborious and costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his convictian that the A1161411°.
gistie Salt, which ho now has the happiness to
present to the American public, was it
for Blood-letting., Leeches and Blisters, his
mind was so agitated that lie sBuld not sleep
for many nights. The cause of his agitation
was the striking fact that the manner or its op.
oration, like that of the virus in vaccination,
could not be explained upon any known princi
ple. How, in what way, it so effectually sub
dues inflammatory diseases and no others, was
at first wholly inexplicable i but on further ex•
periment it was proved that by its power over
the velris, arteries and glands, it equalizes the
fluids qf the body, the want of an equilibrium
in which is the sole cause of inflammation. It
exerts like the vaccine matter, an extrtiordina•
ry influence over the circulation—resulting in
a gradual decline of inflammation as indicated
by the pulse which soon resumes its natural
state, as the pain and heat disappear. Such is
its potency, that like the virus lust mentioned,
it requires merely what adheres to the point of
a quill dipi ed in a solution of it to atlect the
entiruu system—but must be instantly used to
prevent decomposition, and secure its full vie.
tee. Three quills in neute, .d two in chronic
disease every 24 hours, till the heat and fever
have subsided and a perfect cure is effseted.—
When it Mites the place of leeches, stimulating
nitittnents and blisters in local inflammation,
as Brain Fever, Croup, Toothache. Pleurisy,
&e., its mode of administration is twofold.
(See directions for dissolving, &c.)
alie-The peculiar excellence of this Salt is,
that without the useless loss of blood stmt
strength, it effectually cures inflammatory di.
eaves (no others) by producing on equilibrium
of all the fluids of the body and a consequent
uninterrupted circulation. The following ditl•
forent 101 . M8 which the unbalanced fluids as
sume and ninny not here mentioned, that have
more or less fever and pain, are as perfectly
subdued by the Antiphlogistic Salt, as fire is
extinguished by water.
