Medicine in the "World!
For DYSPEPSIA, CONSTIPATION, Jaundice,
Bilious attacks, SICK HEADACHE, Colic, Depres

This unrivaled remedy is warranted not to contain
n single particle of Mekcury, or any mineral substance,
containing those Southern Roots and Herbs which an
all-wise l'rovidence has placed in countries where
Liver Diseases most prevail. It will cure all
Diseases caused by Derangement of the
Liver and Dowels.
The SYMPTOMS of Liver Complaint are a bitter
or bad taste in the mouth ; Pain in the Hack, Sides or
Joints, often mistaken for Rheumatism; Sour
Stomach ; Loss of Appetite ; Bowels alternately
costive and kix; Headache; Loss of Memory, with a
painful sensation of having failed to do something
which aught to have been done; Debility; Low
Spirits ; a thick, yellow appearance of the Skin and
Eyes; a dry Cough, often mistaken for Consumption.
Sometimes many of these symptoms attend the
disease, at others very few ; but the Liver, the largest
organ in the body, is generally the scat of the disease,
and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretch
edness and DKATH will ensue.
