Of all the reiredies tvtr d. e v ici tor the safe, certai
and effectua cure of the AcuB and Fever, or Chills an
Ft-ver, none havemoit merited and ieceived the api r
bation of the public than ihcscFitls. Upwards of Etgl.
ty Tiiotisand Hoxes have been s ld, 111 only six States
v.ithui the last twelve months, and over 20,000 boxe
of there haie bem sold tn'the State of Alabama aloni
The Pr pnetor has never known a single mstanc
where these Pnls haw failed to cure the Chills ami
P ever tv here they have been used strictly accordin
to the directions aceonipanymg them. One box 1 1
Pills is generally sufficient tocurc two common case .
these of Chills and Fever Judging from these fact
the Propnetor has the most satisfactory reasons fo
supposing thatupvvaadsof 100 COO persons have bee v
restored tiom siccness to health by u-:ng this impol
tant meiicine, and that too, in the brief space of twelv
months. Indeed, no language can describe, no tongu
can express, an 1 no pen can pourtray the vast amoun
of sickness and suffering which these Pillshaverehev
ed, and the joy and graiittdc of those who have beei 1
restored to h.ullh by using them.
Eitiact of a letter from Dr. Hagood, dated Mount Pin-
son, Alabama, Feb 3, 1813:
I consider them (Hu'.l's Pills) as good a medicine as
can be used tor the cure of Fevers, or Ague an A Fevers.
1 have prescribed them inn number of cases of Fever,
after first admini3tenn; an emetic or cathartic, and al-
ways with the mod happy lesults. In fine, 1 havr
neverknown Hull's Pillstofail curing the Chills an'1
Fever, in a single instance.
Extract of a letter from Dr. Mattison. dated Benton
Co , Alabama, August. ID, 1642.
I think them (.Hull's Pills) an excellent medicine.
Indeed I have never known the pills us?d in a singl.
instance, according to diiectiou, without effecting a
complete cure. My neighbours speak of them in the
highest terms. BENJAMIN MATTISON.
Abe now acknowledged by ilu Faculty lobe the most
scientific andsuccesslul pr-paration ever discovered lor
the., relief o! Coughs, Colds, Coiisumpti n, Asthma,
Whooping Cough, Catarrh, Tightness ofthe Lungs or

They are made from a comb. nation ot tho'most valua-
ble expectorant ur cough nuUiuius, and are undouln
edly superior to every thing in use for these complaints.
Thegieat shire of patronage which the Proprietor has
enjoyed in the South and West tor the last twelve
months b.. a hrge and extensive saic of these Lozen-
ges, prove most conclusively, that they are now rapidly
superceding all other preparations. Indeed the propri-
etor has never kuevvii an instance where they did not
frive perfect satisfaction. Several thousand Boxes
have been sold, giving immediate relief to those who
have been aiflicted with the most distressing olds and
coughs, and restoring to health pei&ona in almost ev-
ery stage of Pulmonary Adecuons.

Dr. Hull Dear Sir 1 wish jou to send me a new

I have been selling ihem for some tunc, and they have
become very popular here, so that 1 have not had any
on baud for several mouths I have used (hem with
great success, and 1 consdcrtheni the best medicine
for coughs and colds that I ev.-r was acquainted with.
Dr. Mifleru-eii them with the happiest effect. He was
troubled with a severe cold and inflaniatioti of 'he
lungs, but was cuted immediately by using the Lozen-
ges. Yours, very icsptctiully, II. D EDWARDS.
These Luzenzes havuiiow been in use in tn Southern
and Western S-tate-uprtardsoftwelve months, during
which lime they have gained for themselves a popu-

over 50,01)0 ca-e they have proved an infallible remedy
for the destnu t.on of those reptiles within which are
the means of sweeping off Hundudsand Thousands
ot the most blooming children and youth, seven. ig lhe
cords of affection, and forever blasting the fondest
hopes of the parent. So great has the r effic-ncvinvari-ably

nearly all diseases have a common origin, viz:
in the organs winch prepare and modily the blood,
with a remedy, directed to the seat ol disease, will
removu a hostol its phenomena. It is the peculiar
characteristic ol Sands's Sarsaparilla, that its
searching operation reaches the cause of disease,
and the cures it pcibrms are therelore radical and
thorough. The health ol the human system depends
almost entirely upon the state ol the blood, it the
vitalizing fluid which pervades every ti-sue, every
membiane, fibre, filament, aland, or other oigan
primary orsubsidary; il the budybe charged with
ihe elements of disease, sickness must be the conse-
quence, and until the causes ol disease existing in
the blood, are eradicated, no permanent relief can
be expected. It is here that the powerJul health
restoting properties of Sands's Saisaparilla aie
manilesied; and for this reason, in bcrolula, bait

Messrs. Sands Gents. : I consider it but.an act
of jusuce to yoj to state the following lacts in ref-
erence to the great benefit I have ieceived in the
cure ol an obstinate Cancerous ULCERon my breast.
1 was attended eighteen months by a regular and
skilful physician, assisted by the advice ai.d counsel
oi one of ourmostable and experienced surgeons,
without the least benefit whatever. All the various
methods ol treating cancer wereresoited to; lor
fi 'e v eeks in succession my breast was burned with
caustic tluee limes a day, and lor six it was daily
syringed with a weak solution of nitric acid, and
the Cavity or internal ulcer was so large that it held
over an ounce ol the solution. The Doctor probed
the ulcer and examined the bone; and said the dis-
ease was advancing rapidly to the lungs, and if 1
did not get speedy relief by medicine or an opera-
tion, the result would be fatal. 1 was advised to
have the breast laid open and the bones examined,
but finding no relict from what had been done, aud
feeling 1 was rapidly gelling worse, 1 almost des-
paiied of recovciy, considered my case nearly
Seeing various testimonials and cctificates of
cure by the use of" Hands' s Hasrparillu," in c.ses
similar to my own, I concluded to try a lew bottles,
several ol which vere used, but from the long, deep
seated charactei ot my disease, produced no very
decided change; considering this as the only p-o
bable cure lor my case, I persevered, until the dis-
ease was entirely cured. It is now over eleven
months since the t ure was completed; there is not
the slightest appearance ol a return. I therefore

nothing else could, and I leel myself under lasting
