Having received the sole agency of A. F.
Hazard & Co., Druggists, Philada., for the sale
of the Brandy for Huntingdon county, we con
fidently offer it to the public as a pure and un
adulterated article as the following certificate
will prove.
Chemical Inspector's Office,
28 Sixth St., between Walnut and Vine,
Cincinnati, March, 1857,
This will certify that I have this day inspec•
ted two separate lots of Catawba Brandy one
in Barrels and one in Bottle, manufactured by
Lauritze Lynne, and sold by his Sole Agent, J.
Jacob, at the Depot, No. 99 opposite the Bur
net House, and 143 West Third Street, Cincin
nati, and find them both pure and free from
all poisonous or deleterious drugs. and as such
have marked the same, as the law directs. Gi•
ven under my hand at ray office. [signed.]
Inspector of Alcholic Liquors, &c.
New Fin*, Jrly 28, 1857,
Dear Sir have received a bottle of Lyons'
Pura Ohio Catawba Brandy, furnished by Mr.
A. Ralston. Jr., of Lockport, N. Y., for analy
zation, and I find it to contain only those in
gredients which exist in pure. Brandy. The
proportion of Alcohol obtained from it is 47.00.
I believe this sample to be pine Brandy with
out adulteration—the flavor of it is delicate
and peculiar. JAMES R. CHILTON, M. D.,
The 01110 CATAWBA BRANDY last
only equals, but even excels the best imported
Brandies in purity and flavor. It is hi fact the
Best Brandy known. This statement is fully
corroborated by the certificates of many of our
most distinguished analytical Chemists, 801110
of which accompany this circular.
The want of PURE BRANDY has long
been felt in this country, and the introduction
of an article of such quality as to supersede
the sale and use of those vile compounds hill).
erto sold under the name of Brandy, can only
be regarded as a great public good. The Ca.
tawba Brandy possesses all the good qualities
claimed for the best imported Liquor, and is of
perfect purity and superior flavor. It is tbere•
fore fully entitled to the patronage of the pub
lic. We feel confident that its reception in
this State will be as that which it has met with
in the Great West, and that the time is not far
distant, when the superiority of our own Li
quors will put an end to their importation from
abroad. In Medicinal purposes this Brandy
has no rival, and has long been needed.

Dr. Ilardnian treats Consumption, Bronchi
tis, Asthma, Larryngittis and all diseases of the
throat and lungs, by medical Inhalation, lately
used in the Bromton Hospital, London. The
great point in the treatment of all liJnian mala
dies is to get at the disease in the direct man
ner, All medicines are estimated by their ac
tion upon the a rpm requiring relief. This is
the important fact upon which Inhalation is ba
sed. If the stomach is diseased We take
medicine directly into the stomach. lithe lungs
are diseaset!, breathe or inhale medicated va
pors directly into the lungs. Medicines are the
antidotes to 4isense and should he applied to
the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the ap
plication of this pnneiple to the treatment of
the lungs, for it gives us direct access to those
intricate air calls 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 heen because they hod
never been approached to 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 he local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should not
act constistutionally, expending immediate and
principal action upon the unofleniling stomach,
whilst the find ulcers within the lungs were un
molested. Inhalation brings the medicine in
direct contact with the disease, without the
disadvantage of any violent action. Its appli
cation is simple, that it can he employed by the
youngest infant or feeblest invalid. It does not
derange the stomach, or interfere in the least de
gree with the strength, comfort, or business of
the patient.

DR. MORSE, the inventor of MORSE'S IN
DIAN ROOT PILLS, has spent the grea
ter part of his life in travelling, having visited
Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as North
America--has spent three years among the In
dians of our Western country—it was in this
way that the Indian Root Pills were first dis
covered. Dr. Morse was the first man to es
tablish the fact that all diseases arise from Im
purity of the Blond—that our strength, health
and life depended upon this vital fluid.
When the various passages become clogged,
and do not net in perfect harmony with the dif
fereut functions of the body, the blood loses •
its action, becomes thick, corrupted and di
sensed; thus causing all pains sickness and
distress of every name; our strength is exhaus
ted, our health we are deprived of, and if na
ture is not assisted in throwing off the stag
aunt humors, the blood will become choked
and cease to act. and thus our light of life will
forever he blown out. How imporlant then
that we should keep the various plbsriges of
the hotly free and open. And how pleasant to
us that we have it in our power to put a medi
cine in your reach, namely, Morse's Indian
Root Pills. manufactured from plants and roots
which grow around time mountainous cliffs in
Nnmre's garden, for the health and recovery
of diseased man. One of the roots from which
these Pills are made is a Sudorific, which o•
pens the pores of the skin, and assists Nature
in throwing out the finer parts of the ~corrup•
tion within. The second is a plant illhich is
an Expectorant. that opens and unclogs the
passage to the lungs, and thus. in a soothing
manner, performs its ditty by throwing off
phlegm, and other humors from the hangs liy
copious spitting. The third is a Diuretic,
whirls gives ease and double strength to the
kidneys; thus encout aged, they draw large a—
mounts of impurity from the blood, which is
then thrown ont bountifully by the urinary or
water passage, and which could n. t have been
discharged in lilly tither way. Th 4 fourth is
a Cathartic, and accompanies the other prop
erties of the Pills while engaged in purifying
the lived; the courser particles of impurity
which cannot pass by the other outlets, are
thus taken up and conveyed off in great quan•
titles by the bowels.
Font; the shove, it is shown that Dr. Morse's
Indian Root Pills not only enter the stomach,
but bebome united with the blood, fur they find
way to every part, and completely rcut out
and cleanse the system from all impurity, and
the life of the holy, which is the blood, be
comes perfectly healthy; consequently all sick
ness and pain is drives lions the system, for
they cannot remain when lie body becomes
so pure and slant.
The reason why people are so distressed
when sick, and why so many die, is because
they an not get a medicine which will pass to
the tabled parts, and which will open the
natural passages for the disease to be cast out
hence, a large quantity of fluid and other mut
ter is lodged, and the stomach and intestines
are literally overflowing with the corrupted
mass; thus undergoing disagreeable ferment.
lion. constantly mixing with the blood, which
throws the corrupted matter through every
vein and rt'etery, until life is taken from the
body by disease. Dr. Morse's Pills have ad
ded to themselves victory upon victory, by re.
storing millions of the sick to blooming health
and happiness. Yes, thousands who have
bees racked or tormented with sickness, pain
and anguish, and whose feeble frames have
sets scorched by the burning elements of ra•
ging lover, and who have been brought, as it
were, within a step of the silent crave, now
stand ready to testify that they would have
been numbered with the dead, had it not been
for this groat and wonderful medicine, Morse's

had beets taken, they were 44tonished, and ab
solutely surprised, in witnessing their charm.
tog effects. Nut only do they give immedi
ate ease and strength, and take away all sick
ness, pain and anguish but they at once go to
work at the Mundation of the disease, which is
the blood. Theretbre, it will be shown, espec
ially by those who use these Pills, that they
will so cleanse and purify, that disease—that
deadly enemy—will take its flight, and the
flush of youth and beauty will again return,
and the prospect of a long and happy life will
cher'sh and brighten your days.
