To the Nervous and Debilitated,

This wonderful remedy, chiefly composed from the essence of a plant that grows in the tea districts of China, the use of which, as prescribed by learned Chinese physicians as an antidote to the effect of eating opium, &c., was discovered by Dr. Adam Laurie, M.R.C.S., while attached to the French and British Embassies at Hong Kong, and by him introduced into European practice.

These Pills take no effect as a Cathartic but act specifically on the blood and nervous centres; are a speedy and infallible remedy for

Neuralgia, Ticdoloreux, Dyspepsia. St. Vitus' Dance, Languor, Lassitude, Depression of Spirits, Nervous Headache, Irritability, Excitement, Excessive Use of Tobacco, and all diseases from impure blood or nervous derangement, and may be taken with entire safety by the most delicate lady or tender child.

Brandreth's Pills and New Style.

THE WHOLE OBJECT TO INSURE A CURE in most cases of sickness, is to remove Impure Humors faster than they are formed. The time of cure will be governed by this rule. Thus by using BRANDRETH'S PILLS according to printed directions, the matters in you producing sickness will become less; your sickness will be of the past, and your health will be of the present, fresh and enduring.

This Case of C. J. Fay,

should command attention from the sick. Let him in search of health ask if these things be so; being assured they are, let him take courage and the Pills, and secure his health:

HAMMONTON, N. J., May 7, 1861.

DR. BRANDRETH—Dear Sir: I have long wanted to write to you and express my gratitude for the beneficial effects that have been experienced in my own family, and in hundreds, aye, thousands of others, by the use of Brandreth's Pills. The first year my friend Brockway sold your Pills in Boston, 1838, I was then in a declining state of health, and my friends, as well as myself, supposed that my earthly voyage would soon terminate. Mr. Brockway urged me to take the Brandreth Pills; but having used so much medicine, with no good effect, I was more inclined to let nature take its course, and calmly submit to my fate. Mr. B. offered to give me one dozen boxes, if I would take them as prescribed. By this I saw he had great faith in them, and I finally consented to take them, but not as a gift. I went home, and went at it most hopelessly. After taking one box I began to feel better. Well, sir, when I had used up my twelve boxes, I was a well, healthy man, my weight having gone from 131 pounds up to 152 pounds. I then ordered a supply, and between that time and the present, I have retailed three thousand dollars worth of these invaluable Pills, and am quite sure that I have thereby been instrumental in saving not hundreds, but thousands of lives.

Yours truly,   C. J. FAY, P. M.

New Style of Brandreth's Pills. The New Style is a small band of paper around the box of Pills and directions; on the band are printed, in RED INK, Benjamin Brandreth's Pills.

Benjamin Brandreth's Pills.

The paper is covered with these words in SMALL ENGRAVED LETTERS, and around the whole is a piece of Allcock's plaster, to keep the band secure in its place.

This New Style ensures you fresh Pills, and the Genuine; but it is not to be denied, that many respectable Dealers sell Genuine Brandreth's Pills of Old Style. These will be changed for New Style, if not over two years has passed since they were in my possession.

B. BRANDRETH.

BRANDRETH'S PILLS are sold at 25 cents per box, with directions, at No. 4 Union Square, N. Y.; Campbell's corner Eighth Avenue and Twenty-Eighth Street; McMurdy, Albany; Frank Taylor, Washington, D. C.; Geo. E. Stanton, Chicago; Philadelphia, 14 North Eighth Street; S. R. Callender, N. AV. corner of Third and Walnut Streets; S. C. Upham, 403 Chestnut Street; Trenton, N. J., C. C.
