IN calling the attention of the Farmers of this
County, Lavaca and Fayette to a new and
important invention, which is destined to accom-
plish a grand revolution in planting corn, cot-
ton, beans and peas, we stale that the machine
wan patented and improved bf Geo. M. Evans ;
it is simpte, durable and effectual i opens the
ground, covers the grain with certainty, doing
the work of four or five hands neater and better
than Can be ddnfc by any other machine. It *is
niftde of ttrttod and wrought irou, can be made or
reAjred in ány shop on any farm.
Pi arc requested to Call and examine its
merits before purchasing. The Wolf Patent is
hcaVy, and th« fastening and most important
paÁs are rrnde of cast iron, and cannot be
repaired, should any part break, short of the
Foundry. 80 the Farmer sees the merits of the
Evans Planter at once.

THESE PILf¿$ I have prepared on scientific
principles, after thirty yeárs' experience in
the practice of medicine as a Regular Physician.
I cured myself of Dyspepsia with them, at 63
years of age, after all other medical treatment
had failed. After trying many combinations of
medicine, I had the good fortune to make the
valuable discovery, whiüi I now offer to the
public. The ¿ngredients composing these Fills
are all of Vegetable and Southern origin. They
act very gently, producing no sickness or disa-
greeable sensation, aud they will not prevent the
patient from eating or drinking anything de-
sired, Each box of ¡«ills will have a printed pre-
scription wrapper, describing the symptoms, cau>
ses, and curc of dyspepsia. As indigestion is
the forerunner of all diseases, a purgative dose of
tliese pills, two or three taken at bed time, will
prevent, all the common diseases of the country.
Price, TWentv-fie Cents per box.
