CURES



The PAIN KILLER is by universal consent allowed to have won for itself a reputation
unsurpassed in the history of medical preparations. Its instantaneous effect in the entire
eradication and extinction of PAIN in all its various forms incidental to the human family,
and the unsolicited written and verbal testimony of the masses in its favor, have been and
are its own best advertisement.

The ingredients which enter into the PAIN KILLER, being PURELY VEGETABLE,
render it a PERFECTLY SAFE and efficacious remedy taken internally, as well as for
external applications, when used according to the directions. The slight slain upon linen
from its use in external applications, is readily removed by washing with a little alcohol.

This medicine, so justly celebrated for the cure of BO many of the afflictions incident to
the human family, has now been before the public about EIGHTEEN YEARS, and has
found its way into almost every corner of the world ; and wherever it has been used, the
same opinion is expressed of its real medicinal properties.

In any attack where prompt action upon the system is required, the PAIN KILLER is
invaluable. Its almost instantaneous effect in RELIEVING PAIN is truly wonderful, and
when used according to directions is true to its name,



It is, in truth, a FAMILY MEDICINE, and should be kept in every family for immediate
use. Persons traveling should always have a bottle of this remedy with them. It is not
unfrequently the case that persons are attacked with disease, and before medical aid can be
procured, the patient is beyond the hope of recovery. Captains of vessels should always
supply themselves with a few bottles of this remedy before leaving port, as by so doing they
will always be in possession of an invaluable remedy to resort to in cases of accidents and
sudden attacks of sickness. It has been used in



and never has failed in a single case, where it was thoroughly applied on the first appearance
of the symptoms.

Obtain a copy of the PEOPLE'S PAMPHLET, which contains full directions for ueing
the PAIN KILLER, together with a brief sketch of the first introduction of the medicine,
recommendatory notices, certificates, &c., &c.

The present form, (adopted July 1, 1854,) in which the Pain Killer is put up, is a flat
panel bottle (four sizes) with the words "DAVIS' VEGETABLE PAIN KILLER" blown
in the glass, on one side of which is a miniature likeness of Perry Davis, the original in-
ventor of the medicine ; on the opposite our note of hand, to counterfeit which is held to be
forgery by the laws of theJJnited States. These labels are finely executed steel engravings,
and the increased cost attending the execution and printing of the same, is incurred for the
protection of the public against counterfeits, to which a less expensive style is liable.

To those who have so long used and proved the merits of our article, we would say that
we shall continue to prepare our Pain Killer of the best and purest materials, and that it
shall be every way worthy of their approbation as a family medicine.

PRICES, 121 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, and 1$ per Bottle.

WASHINGTON MEDALLION PEN!



Merchant, Lawyer, Physician, Clergyman, Editor, Author,
Mechanic, and Farmer,

And those who are to fill these professions hereafter SCHOOL CHILDREN you daily have
occasion for writing some much, some but little ; but be it much or little, you find it a
task. If you would be relieved of much of the annoyance that you now experience in
writing, procure the



WHICH IS THE OJYL.Y STEEL fEJV MANUFACTURED IJV AMERICA.



The following from the Boston
Traveler and Daily News speaks of
the quality distinctly enough to
make further commendation unne-
cessary :

The WASHINGTON MEDALLION PEN.
We wish to call the attention of our
readers to this Pen. We have given
it a thorough trial, and do not hesi-
tate to recommend it as the very
best article that we have ever held
between our thumb and finger. It
is as soft as a quill, and yet suifi-
ciently firm, and it makes, when
necessary, the finest hair line. It
is a satisfaction to work with it;
and if our paragraphs are ever in-
correct or dull, or our spelling bad,
it will not be this Pen's fault.
Boston Traveler, Jan. 14.



WASHINGTON MEDALLION PEN.
This favorite and purely American
Pen appears to be coming into uni-
versal use, and is likely soon to dis-
place the foreign article altogether.
We have never used a metallic Pen
of so much delicacy and elasticity,
that runs so smoothly, lasts so long,
or front which the writing fluid
flows so exactly in the right quantity,
as the WASHINGTON MEDALLION.
They are now used at most of the
Government offices, and the sale, we
are pleased to know, it enormously
large and increasing.

The following letter, the original
of which we have seen, from one
who well understands the use of the
pen, is a high commendation.
Daily News, Jan. 25.



Letterirom Jas. Buchanan.

WHBATLAND,
Tuesday, Jan. 20, 1857.
MY DEAR SIR : Many thanks for
the box of Washington Medallion
Pens. I find them better than most
of the English Pens I have used,
and I heartily wish the manufac-
turer success. The facts you state
are quite interesting, and I shall
retain them in my memory. I had
not the most remote idea that we
paid England $1,000,000 annually
for steel pens.

Yours, very respectfully,

JAMES BUCHANAN.
To THE SECRETARY

Of the Washington Medallion,
Pen Co., 58 Cedar St., N. Y.



These Pens have been used for
more than a year in the Smith-
sonian Institution, and give entire
satisfaction.



If you have any curiosity
to try these PENS, enclose two
stamps to the

J. DENNIS, J R ., SOLICITOR OF PATENTS,

PRACTICAL MACHINIST, MANUFACTURER AND DRAUGHTSMAN.

Having had twenty years' experience in building and operating machinery for manufacturing Cotton, Silk
Wool, Steam Engines, Printing Calico, <fec., with ten years' experience in procuring patents, tenders his services
to inventors to make examinations of their inventions from a rough sketch or drawing and limited description,
(which may be forwarded by mail,) and compare them with the inventions in the Patent Office, and give ar
opinion, whether the invention is patentable or not, for a fee of $5, and save the inventor the expense of apply-
ing for a patent, which usually costs $60, exclusive of the cost of model, and only about two-fifths of the patents
applied for are granted. His experience in making drawings of, building, and operating machinery, enables
him to understand an invention from a rough drawing and limited description, and to comprehend the points
in which the invention differs from those already patented, with the greatest facility; or for a similar fee, he
will make an examination and give an opinion as to which is the best patented machine for any purpose. He
also prepares drawings, specifications, caveats, and assignments, or procures copies from, or attends to any busi-
ness connected with the Patent Office. Counsellors in patent cases can have an opinion by stating the points in
their case, and arguments prepared with the proper authorities cited to sustain the same, with depositions if
necessary. He will also attend as Counsellor or Advocate in patent causes in any Court. N. B. All communi-
cations considered strictly confidential. Rejected applications carefully examined for $5. Appeals from the de-
cisions of the Commissioner of Patents taken to one of the Judges of the Circuit Court for a moderate fee. Cir-
culars containing important information for Inventors and Patentees forwarded to any person desiring them.
