A sour stomach?

A great depression of spirits without known cause? 

Specks before the eyes, and flushed face? 

A done out, tired feeling? 

 

Besides many other symptoms too numerous to mention? If you have you 

are affected in your liver and kidneys, and should do something for 

it. The following preparation, "Magic Kidney and Liver Restorer," acts 

on these organs and, when diseased or out of order, restores them to a 

healthy state. Everyone should keep a bottle of this preparation in 

the house, as it is an invaluable medicine. Splendid to take in the 

spring to tone up the system:

Two ounces of alcohol; 

One and a half ounces of glycerine; 

One ounce of liverwort; 

Three hundred and twenty grains of saltpetre; 

Forty drops of wintergreen. 

 

Steep the liverwort in a quart of water down to half the quantity, 

then throw in the other ingredients while hot. Dose: One tablespoonful 

about four times a day.

One ounce blackberry leaf; 

One ounce hops.

Take podophyllin and sanguinaria, of each ten grains; leptandrin, 

twenty grains; white sugar, forty grains. Triturate or rub the whole 

well together in a mortar and divide into twenty powders, and take one 

night and morning. If they operate much on the bowels take but one a 

day.

alterative to act on the secretions of the system generally. A
