Mr. H. B. Stevens:
Dear Sir Three years ago I was suffering terribly
with Inflammatory Rheumatism. Our ministers
wife advised me to take vuiiiixi Alter tail
ing one bottle, I was entirely relieved. This year,
feeling a return of the disease, I again commenced
taking it, and am being benefited greatly. It also
greatly Improves my digestion.
Mrs. A. BALLARD,
1011 West Jefferson Street
SAFE AND SURE.
Mr. H. B. Stevens:
In 1872 your Vegeune was recommended to me,
and yielding to the persuatlons of a friend,
I consented to try it At the time I was suffering
from general debility arid nervous prostration,
superinduced by overwork and irregular, habits.
Its wonderful strengthening and curative proper
ties seemed to affect my debilitated system from
the first dose; and under its persistent use I rapid
ly x'ecovered, gaining more than usual health and
good feeling. Since then I have not hesitated to
give Vegetlne my most unqualified indorsement
as being a safe, sure and powerful agent In promot
ing health aud restoring the wasted system to hew
life and energy, Vegetlne Is the only medicine J.
use: and as long as I live I never expect to find a
better. Yours truly, . W, H. CLARK,
120 Monterey Street Alleghany, Penn.
The f allowing letter from Rev. G. W Mansfield,
formerly pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church,
Hyde Park, and at present settled In Lowell, must
convince every one who reads his letter of the won
derful curative qualities of Vegetlne as a thorough
cleanser and purifier of the blood.
Hyde Park,4fass., Feb, 15, 1876.
Mr. H. R. Stevens:
Dear Sir About ten years ago my health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia; nearly
a year later I was attacked by typhoid-fever in its
worst form. It settled in my back, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which was
fifteen months in gathering. I had two surgical
operations by the best skill in the State, but receiv
ed no permanent cure, l sunerea great pain at
times, and was constantly weakened by a profuse
discharge, l also lost small pieces oi Done at au
Matters ran on thus about seven years, 611 May,
1874, when a friend recommended me to go to
your office, and talk with you of the virtue of Vege
tlne. I did so, and by your kmdhess passed througn
your manufactory, noting tne ingredients, sc, oy
which your remedy is produced.
By what I saw and beard I gained some confl-
aence in vegeane.
I commenced taking it soon after, but felt won
from its effects: still I persevered, and soon felt it
was benefitting me in other respects Yet I did not
see the results I desired till I bad taken it faithful
ly for little more than a year, when the difficulty In
the back was cured; and for nine months I have
entered the best of health.
T have in that time gained twenty-five pounds of
flesh, being heavier than ever before in my life, and
I was never more able to perform labor than now.
During the past few weeks I had a scrofulous
swelling as large as my fist gather on another part
of my body.
I took Vegetlne faithfully, and It removed It level
with the surface in a month. I think I should have
been cured of my main trouble sooner if I h; d tak
en larger aoses, alter navmg Decome accustomea
to its effects.
Let your patrons troubled with scrofula or kidney
disease understand that it takes Ume to cure
chronic diseases; and, if they will patiently take
Vegetlne, it will, in my Judgement, cure them.
With great obligations I am

HEPATITIS, OR LIVER COMPLAINT,
-DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE.-
SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASED LIVER.
Pain in the right side, under the edge of the ribs,
Increases on pressure; sometimes the pain Is In the
left side; the patient Is rarely able to lie on the left
side; sometimes the pain Is felt under the shoulder
blade, and It frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and Is sometimes mistaken for rheuma
tism In the arm. The stomach is affected with
loss of appetite and sickness; the bowels in gener
al are costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the
head Is troubled with pain, accompanied with a
dull, heavy sensation in the back part There Is
generally a considerable loss of memory, accom
panied with a painful sensation of having left un
done something which ought to have been done.
A slight dry cough Is sometimes an attendant The
patient complaint of weariness and debility; he Is
easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he
complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his
spirits are low; and although he Is satisfied that ex
ercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarce
ly summon up fortitude enough to try It In fact
he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases have oc
curred where few of them existed, yet examination
of the body, after death, has shown the Liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C McLane's Liver Pills, incases of Ague and
Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results; N o better cathartic can be

the entire satisfaction of my numerous patrons.

any sold in this market except Bridgewater.
