Great American Mixture!
AS it positively will cure HEADACHE, RINGING IN THE EARS and strengthen the weak Nerves and in a few days you will begin to feel strong, as if relieved from a great burden.
Prepared entirely from Roots and Herbs.
This is one of the greatest Medicines in the world for weak nerved persons! Its powerful effects are felt in a day or two throughout the whole system, giving strength and vigor to the shattered frame.— Where this medicine will be used a short but reasonable time, there won't be a pain or an ache felt in the whole list of human ills. This Medicine operates gently on the bowels, carries off corrupt humors, increases the appetite, assists digestion and never leaves the bowels costive.
This Great Indian Remedy
will astonish all who may use it, for its curative properties have been felt by many who have used it, and spoke of their sound sleep at night, having arose in the morning refreshed, from one dose taken at bedtime. For female complaints this medicine has not its equal, for the most delicate persons can use it and be restored to sound health, without any change of diet or hindrance from business.
The American Mixture will Cure the following named diseases:
Liver complaint, sick headache, sore throat, palpitation of the heart, pain in the back and limbs, affections of the kidneys and bladder, and all impurities of the blood, eruptions of the skin, pimples on the face, ringing in the ears, dimness of sight, colds, coughs indicative of consumption, pain in the loins, stiffness of the joints, rheumatism, loss of memory, and all affections of the head.
The American Mixture if used is sure to cure Seminal Weakness that arises from certain destructive habits indulged in by the youthful. It will also effectually cure certain secret diseases and all their destructive concomitants.
The American Mixture is prepared in Tincture Form, pleasant to take and put up in bottles of two sizes—the large size containing half pint, price $1—the other half that size, price 50 cents.
This is one of the greatest Blood purifiers in the World; just a single dose will be felt throughout the whole system. This medicine will do all that it is recommended to do. The great satisfaction of it is that it never leaves the bowel costive after using it, and can be used at all times without any change of diet, or hindrance from business whatever. This medicine needs no recommendation by certificates, as it cures the most aggravated cases of Headache, and many other distressing complaints, named above. — Any person calling on D. W. JONES he will refer them to persons that have used this great Indian Medicine, and will give them entire satisfaction of its curative power over diseases from which they had been relieved.
