The proprietor of this celebrated medicine justly claims for it a superiority over all rem- edies ever offered to the publio for the SAFE CERTAIN SPEEDY and PERMANENT cure of Ague and Feveror Chills and Fe ver.wheth- er of short or long standing. He refers to the entire Western and Southern country to bear him testimony to the truth of the assertion that in no case whatever will it fail to cure if the direotionsare strictly followedandoarried out. In a great many cases a single dose has been sufficient for a oure and whole families have been oured by a single bottle with a per- fect restoration of the general health. It is however prudent and in every case more cer- tain to oure if its use is oontinued in smaller doses for a week or two after the disease has been checked more especially in difficult and long-standing cases...
