DOCTOR BRAGG'S VIRGIN PILLS.
The essential ingredient of this valuable rem
edy is not new, but is well known in the medi
cal schools of France and Gernriny, and has
been employed by the females of the principal
courts of Luropo, and by all of the most distin
guished physicians in this speciality for the last
ten years. My motive is not to offer any pat
ent discovery, but simply, to present to the
mothers and daughters of our own land a siinple
but sure remedy for those diseases to which
they are naturally subjected, in such a form as
should obviate the necessity of those =then'
consultations, which are justly looked upon by
women as a violation of their most sacred feel
ings, and to avoid which they often risk the
most fearful consequences.
I have therefore prepared this specific in the
neat and simple form of a pill, and put it up in
small flat boxes, which can be safely sent any
distance by mail in a common envelope. Each
box is accompanied with lull directions and ex
planations, enabling every woman to understand
her own case and the proper treatment end the

For any of the diseases of the reproductive
organs, they may be taken at all times, except

will be felt immediately and the flush of rosy

the patient of these etlecta.

Dr. Bardnian treats Consnmption, Bronchi
tis, Asthma, Larryngittis and all diseases of the
throat and lungs, by medical Inhalation, lately
used in the Thornton Hospital, London. The
groat point in the treatment of all human mala
dies is to get at the disease in the direct mea
ner, All medicines are estimated by their ac
lion upon th o t rgan requiring relief. This is
I the important fact upon which Inhalation is ha
s ed. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs
are diseased, breathe or inhale medicated va
pors directly into the lungs. Medicines are the
antidotes to disease and should be applied to
the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the ap
plication of this pnnciple to the treatment of
the lungs, for it gives us direct access to those
intricate air cells and tubes which lie out of
reach of every other means of administering
medicines. The reason that Consumption, and
other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore re
sisted all treatment has been because they had
never been approached in a direct manner by
medicine. They were intended to act upon the
lungs and yet were applied to the stomach.—
Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should not
act constistutionally, expending immediate and
principal action upon the unoflending stomach,
whilst the foul ulcers within the lungs were un
molested. Inhalation brings the medicine in
direct coolant with the disease, without the
disadvantage of any violent action. Its appli
cation is simple, that it can be employed by the
youngest infant or feeblest ifivalid. It does not
derange the stomach, or interfere in the least de
gree with the strength, comfort, or business of

great enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor
Sex, but sweeps off alike the brave, the beauti
ful, the graceful and the gifted. By the help of
that Supreme Being from whom cometh every
good and perfect gitt, I am enabled to offer to
the afflicted a permanent and speedy cure in
Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is
from Impure blood, and the immediate effect pro
duced by their deposition in the lunga is to pre- .
vent the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
entire system. Then surely it is !nom rational
to expect greater good from medicines entering
the cavities of the lungs than those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
find the longs tree and the breathing easy, after
Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally And

thorough investigation. My perfect nequaintance
with the nature of tubercles. &c.,enables me to

health, for nothing else in the dread catalogue of

upon the system, drawing its thousands of vic

causes mental derangement, prevents the proper

train of evils more to be dreaded than death it

unfortunate victims of Self-Abuse that a speedy

the abandonment of ruinous practices my pa

Patent Medicines, for there are so many ingeni

I have carefully analyzed many of the so-called
Patent Medicines and find that nearly all of
them contain Corrosive Sublimate, which is one
of the strongest preparations of mercury aunt a
deadly poison, which instead of curing the dis
