The Cheapest, Purest and Best Family
Medicine in the World I
For DYSPEPSIA, CONSTIPATION Jaundice,
rtilious attacks, SICK HEADACHE, Colic, Depres
sion of Spirits, SOUR STOMACH, Heartburn, etc.
This unrivaled remedy is warranted not to contain
a single particle of Mercury, or any mineral subsunce,
containing those Southern Roots and Herbs which an
all-wise Providence has placed in countries where
Liver Diseases most prevail. It will cure all
Diseases caused by Derangement of the
Liver and Bowels.
The SYMPTOMS of Tjver Complaint are a bitter
or bad taste in the mouth; Pain in the Pack, Sides or
Joints, often mistaken for Rheumatism ; Soul
Stomach; Loss of Appetite; Bowels alternately
costive and lax; Headache; Loss of Memory, with a
pn'mful sensation of having failed to do something
which r.u-ht to have been done; Debility; Low
Spirits; a thick, yellow appearance uf the kin and
Eyes; a dry C'irh, often mistaken for Consumption.
Sometimes many of these svinpn-ini attend the
disease, at others very few ; but the Livi.k, the largest
organ in the body, is generally the seat of the disease,
and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretch
edness and IlKATII will ensue.

We hnve tested its virtues personally, and know
that for Dyspepsia, Biliousness and Throbbing Head
ache, it is the best medicine the world ever saw. We
