for the cure of weak stomach, dyspepsia,
catarrh ot stomach, "liver complaint,"

affections, and all catarrhal diseases of
whatever region, name or nature. It is
also a specific Temedy for all such chronic

throat and lung disease (except consump
tion) accompanied with severe coughs. It
Is not so good for acute colds and coughs,
but for lingering, or chronic cases ft is

Oolden rieal root, Hloodroot, Stone root.
Mandrake root and Queen's root all ol
which are highly praised as remedies for
all the above mentioned affections by such
eminent medical writers and teachers as
