A SURE CURE for these distressing
complaints is now made known in a Treatise on Foreign and Native Herbal
Preparations, published by Dr. O. Phelps Brown. The prescription was furnished
him in such a providential manner that he can not conscientiously refuse to make
it known, as it has cured every body who used it, never having failed in a
single ease. It is equally sure in cases of Fits as of Dyspepsia, and the
ingredients maybe found in any drug store. Sent free to all on the receipt of
five cents to pre-pay postage. Address Dr. O. PHELPS BROWN, No. 19 Grand Street,
Jersey City, New Jersey,
Its Advantages are: 1st. It is
loaded with perfect ease and safety, without removing the cylinder (or any part
of it), at the fore end, and can be carried when loaded without the slightest
danger. 2d. The cylinder never fouls; is made from solid steel, bored; and can
not get out of repair, or clog, as cylinders made of many parts will do. 3d. The
cartridge is made on an improved plan; the fulminate is concentrated in one
place, which insures sure fire ; Is METALLIC, CENTRAL FIRE, AND WATER PROOF.
4th. Its peculiar model makes it the most desirable Pocket Revolver ever made.

Certificates. I have used the "Notional Revolver," and believe it to the best
and most convenient revolver ever offered to the public. (Signed)JOHN S. FOLK,
Inspector of Metropolitan Police, N. Y. I have thoroughly tested the new
"National Revolver," and find it an effective weapon, of sure fire and
convenient size. At fifty yards, I think I could with this Pistol kill at every
shot. I take pleasure in recommending it as a weapon in every way desirable. In
company with Capt. Scott, Provost-Marshall, and other officers, I fired this
pistol a large number of times, and not one cartridge failed to explode.
(Signed) JOHN CHARLESTON, Chief of Police, Cairo, Ill. We have one of the
"National Revolvers" now in use, and pronounce it one of the most perfect things
of the kind we ever saw. It is simple in construction, substantial, sure fire,
and shoots with the force and accuracy of a rifle. Any one in want of a good and
reliable weapon can not do better than procure a "National Revolver."
(Signed) J. S. VINCENT, Editor and Proprietor " New Era." We, the undersigned,
having used and thoroughly tested the National Revolvers, have no hesitancy in
saying that, for accuracy, force, and convenience, we think they are far
superior to any other Revolver yet produced. M. C. LOOMIS, with J. G. and W. J.
