Fm/ sure and safe cure lor Fever
n J and Ague. Such we are now
JLi enabled to offer, with a perfect
M certainty that it will eradicate
• the disease, and witli assur-
ance, founded on proof, that no harm can arise
from its use in any quantity.
That which protects from or prevents tins dis-
order must be of immense service in tho com-
munities where it prevails. Prevention is better
than cure, for the patient escapes the risk which
he must rim in violent attacks of this baleful dis-
temper. This "Cure" expels the miasmatic
poison of Fever ani> Ague from the system,
and prevents the development of the disease, if
taken on the first approach of its premonitory
symptoms. It is apt only the best remedy ever
yet discovered for this class of complaints, but
also the cheapest. The large quantity we sup-
ply for a dollar brings it within the reach of
everybody; and in bilious districts, where
Fever and Ague prevails, everybody should
A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittenta is, that it contains no Qui-

healthy as if tliev bad never had the disease.
Fever and Ague is not alone the consequence
of the miasmatic poison. A great variety of dis-
orders arise from its irritation, among which
are Neuralgif Rheumatism, Gout, Headache,
lllindness, Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asth-
ma, Palpitation, Painftil Affection of the Spleen,
Hysterics, Pain in the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis,
and derangement of the Stomach, all of which,
when originating in this cause, put on the in-
termittent type, or become periodical. This
"Cure" expels the poison from the blood, and
consequently cures them all alike. It is an in-
valuable protection to immigrants and persons
travelling or temporarily residing in tho mala-
rious districts. If taken occasionally or daily
while exposed to the infertion, that will be .ex-
creted from the system, and cannot accumulate
in sufficient quantity to ripen into disease.
Hence it is even more valuable for protection
than cure; and few will ever suffer from Inter-
mittents if tbey avail themselves of the protec-
tion this remedy affords.
For lirer Complaints, arising from torpid-
ity of the Liver, it is an excellent remedy, stim-
ulating the T.iver into healthy activity, anil pro-
ducing many truly remarkable cures, where
other incdicihes fall.
