Hem ed y for Intemperance.
11 E Editor has received some of this
invaluable medicine from Messrs.
aiming, (successors to Doctor
Chambers) accompanied with a request
to administer it to some person who
is habitually addicted to intemperance
and willing to test its efficacy.
"The astonishingsuecess which this
remedy has obtained in restoring habitu
al inebriates to sobriety? has established
its virtues beyond all contradiction, and
supercedes the necessity of any further
comment. The remedy is as innocent
as it is effectual; so much so; that it is
often given to children in febrile com
plaints, and frequently used as a family
medicine for dyspepsia, -Vc. All that
is required to ensure its specific effect, is!
to abide strictly by the directions."
The strictest secrecy will be observ
ed, and the medicine with the necessary
directions furnished, on application at
Tarboro', Nov. 1827.
