paper a notice at:racted my attention signed by
Jerome Hoover, Esq., in which he states that certain
stories are in circulation that the undersigned claim
some interest in Xemaha City for the purpose of in
juring its prosperity. It may do quite well to cir
culate & report of that nature where the facts are
unknown, but to fiose knowins the facts such a
statement is merely foolish.
And for the purpose of pTing a fair opportunity
to persons to ascertain the facts we hereby warn a
persons from purchasing any pretended claim or
interest in the said town of Xemaha City, frm the
said Jerome HooTer.asbe has sold and received pay
for nine-twelfths of said town, and suit 13 now pending
to place the undsrsigned in possession of the interest
by them purchased in the same; and they have not
authorized the said Hoover to seE or dispose of any
portion of their interest, but directed suit to be

AXXW and singularly successful remedy for the
cure of all Bilious diseases Costxreneas, Indi
creation. Jaundice, Dropsy, Rheumatism, Fevers,
Gout, Humors, Nervousness, Lrritxhility, Inflamma
tions. Headache Pains in the Breast, Side, Back,
and Limbs, Female Complaints, &c &c Indeed,
Tery few are the diseases in which, a Purgative Medi
cine is not more or less required, and much sick"
ness and suffering might be prevented, if a harm
less but effectual Cathartic were more freely used.
No person can feel well while a costive habit of
body prevails ; besides, it soon generates serious and
often fatal diseases, which might have been avoided
by the timely and judicious use of a good purgative.
This is alike true of Colds, FeTerish symptoms, and
Bilious derangements. They all tend to become or
produce the deep seated and formidable distempers
which load the hearses all over the land. Hence a
reliable family physic is of the first importance to
the public health, and this Pill has been perfected
with consummate skill to meet that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profes
sors, and Patients, has shown results surpassing
any thing hitherto known of any medicine. Cures
have been effected beyond belief," were they not sub
stantiated by persons of such exalted position and
character as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Among the many eminent gentlemen who have
testified m favor of these Pills, we may mention :
Prof. J. M. LociE, Analytical Chemist, of Cin
cinnati, whose high professional character is en
John McLeajt, Judge of the Supreme Court of
the United States.
Thos. Cokwix, Secretary of the Treasury.
Hon. J. II. Wright, Governor of Indiana.
H. Lotigwobxh, great wine grower cf the West.
Also, Dr. J. K. Chilton-, Practical Chemist, of
New York City, endorsed by
Hos. W. L. Marct, Secretary of State.
Wm. B. Astok, the richest man in America.
S. Lelaxd A Co., Propr's cf the Metropolitan
Hotel, and many others.
Did space permit, we could give manv hundred
certificates, from all parts where the Pills have
been used, but evidence even more convincing than
the experience of eminent public men is found in
their effects upon triaL
These Pills, the result of long inrestieation ani
study, are offered to the public as the best and
most complete which the present state of medical
science can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves, but of the medicinal virtues
only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical '
process in a state of purity, and combined together
in such a manner as to insure the best results. This
system of composition for medicines has been found
in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by the old mode of composition, every
medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi
vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative
effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed are left behind, the
curatiTe virtues only being retained. Hence it is
self-evident the effects should prove, as they have
proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a surer,
more powerful antidote to disease than any other
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medicine
should be taken under the counsel of an attending
Physician, and as he could not properly judjrc of a
remedy without knowing its composition, I Lave
supplied the accurate Formulae by which both my
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of
Practitioners in the United States and British Amer
ican Provinces. If, however, there should be any
one who has not received them, they will be
promptly forwarded by mail to bis request.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how
few would be taken if their composition was known !
Their life consists in their mystery. I have no
The composition of my preparations is laid open
to all men, and all who are competent to judge on
the subject freely acknowledge their convictions of
their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral was
pronounced by scientific men to be a wonderful
jiedicine before its effects were known. Many em
inent Physicians have declared the same thing of
my Pills, and even more confidently, and are will
ing to certify that their anticipations were more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the
internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it
into healthy action remove the obstructions of
the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the
bodv, restoring their irregular action to health, and
by correcting," wherever they exist, such derange
ments as are the first origin of disease.
Being sugar-wrapped, they are pleasant to take,
and being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from
their use in any quantity.
