The Champion Liver$Stomach PILLS. rnHESE PILLS are compounded from the .l recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives- knowing- their excellent properties by experience hUF been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach, and derangements of the liver, ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that most of the discllses incident to the human race, arise from a disordered stomach, and irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple mala. dies, become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommeuded. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach correct the morbid condition of the liver, regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impedimentsj restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. TESTIMONIALS. Usk, January 28th, 1805. AND STOMACH PTLLS for gome years, and I can are the best medicine for Stouiacn Complaints that I have ever taken; and previously to their becoming known to me I had tried a great number of different kinds. They never fail in giving me instunt relief, and having received so much benefit from their use, I think it but right that I should recommend them, as I do whenever I have opportunity. MARS' WHITE FIELD. Castle Farm, Gwehelog, near Usk, March 26th, 1884. SIR,-I am glad to be able to bear testimony to the great efficacy of the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH Pre- viously to my being recommended to try them, I suffered much from Asthma, but since I have been in the habit of taking these pills, when I find 11111 attack coming on I have oniy to take one dose to obtain certain and speedy relief, and by repeating the dose two or three times I am restored to my usual health. I am sure that these pills have saved me a vast amount of suffering, and I therefore, with pleasure, give you permission to make what use you like of this testimonial, as, if iL should be the means of inducing any persons afflicted as I have been to try the medicine, I shall feel ttiat I have done them great service. To Mr. CLAKK, Usk. THOMAS PRICE. Penarth, near Cardiff, 24th October, 1804. Mr. Clark, TJsk.—Sik,— I enclose 28 stamps, and shall be obliged if you will send me two boxes of the CHAMPION LITER Pills. You will think I am consuming a great quantity of them, from the number of boxes you have sent me; but the fact is, since I hare been in this neighbourhood, I have recommended the pills to several persons here who suffer from biliousness, like myself, and they all agree that they never took anything that did them so much good. I think if the pilli were sold in this neighbourhood, a great many more people would take to them, because they would be sure to recommend themeelm. HENRY ELLIS. Gwehelog, near Usk, December, 1859. Snt,—After goffering for several years from acute pains in my side, brick, chest, and stomach, and after calling in several medical men, and trying every remedy, I still suffered severely from the complaints. At length I was induced to try the Champion Livek and Stomach Pills, sold by you The first box gave me grejt relief. I then purchased a second box, and it completely removed my complaint, and I am now in perfect health, Having received so much benefit from these p ll3 myself, I think that I am only doing a service to the public in recommending them. JOHN ROBE UTS. To Mr.. Clakk, Bookseller. Uak. Pontypool, January 20th, 1860. BIR,-For some years I suffered very much from an affection of the Liver. Tiie medical men to whom I apphed gave me pills which removed the complaint for a short tin]. but it returned as bad as after ever a wtek or ten days. Hearing of the CHAMPION PILLS, I r(solred to try them, and I rm happy to say, that after taking a few doses, I felt much better, and it is now mree months since I have experienced any return of my old complaint. If I have the headache, or pain in the side or ahou'ders, I take a couple of the CHAMWON PILLS at night, and I f. el all right the next day. WM. MO.tiGAN. 5, Settle's Buildings. New Swindon, Feb. 24,1863. Si*,—I am wishful to inform you of the great benefit I have found from taxing tie CHAJII'ION PILLS From my childhood I have been much troubled with indigestion, which caused me great suffering, and I wag never many nays without it, until a fiiend gave me a few of these pills, which is the only medicine that gives me relief. MAHIA RICHARDS. Llanbaddock, near Uslc, Feb. 9, 1S63. SIR,—I am very glad to be able to recommend the CHAHCION PILLS. I have tried every'hing I could think of for the Liver Complaint, but never found any meùicille lID me ,?■> much good as these uills. Mark of X MARY At,N MERRIMAN. 16, Christian Street, Stockport, 15th Oct, 1832. SIR.—Please forward me another box of the CHAMPION PILLS, for which I enclose fourteen stamps. I find them sncii an excellent medicine, not only for my-elf, but also for the whole of my l«tmil>, ihat I never like to be without some in the house.

BLAENAVON. THE GHOST,—Messrs. Poole and Young's very amusing and instructive entertainment, which has been given in the Town Hall during the past week, has been a source of great attraction to the inhabitants of this place. The room which is supposed to accommodate about 400 persons was crowded nightly, which flattering approval of the enter- tainment, induced the proprietors to continue their perfor- mances for a few nights longer than they at first intended, The large paintings of American scenery and also that of the Crypt of the Holy Seputchre at Jerusalem, were truiv magniticent. The spectral illusions too, were very inter- esting. For novelty and varic-ly we do not hesitate in pronouncing it one of the best exhibitions that has ever been witnessed in this town. THE FAIR on Monday was well attended, and there seemed to be a greater amount of business transacted than usual, particularly in horses and pigs, the latter fetching high prices. There was also a sale of horses by auction, ili the Market Field, and several useful cart horses and mountain ponies exchanged owners. PRIMITIVE METHODIST SUNDAY SCHOOL.—Special ser- vices were held, in connexion with the above school, in the open air, at Garnddyris, on Sunday last, and were weil attended. On Monday the children were regaled with ex- cellent tea and cake, TLis school basortly been established about six ment is, and through the praiseworthy exertions ot a few iii the members o! the congregation, it now'num- bers nearly siity children.

On the duy named he relurned home in a drunken state, and commenced beating her in a si.Viige manner, and she then gave him into custody. Prisoner pleaded guilty, and begged of his wife to forgiv-e him. Hii was bound over to keep the peace towarua her for six month*, and ordered to pay 11.. 61. costs. Gardes Bobbert.—John Hopkins and James Douglas (hoys of about 8 years of age) and a woman nUllled Catherine Hurley, were charged with stealing fruit from a gor ien,the property uf Tiiomas Powell, Esq. John Richards, the gar- dener, proved the loss of the fruit. John liowciiit stated, that he saw the woman Hurley put Hopkins on C, wall cf the garden from where he picked the fruit, aud tiu-ew it down into her (Hurley's) apron. Upun hearing witness approaching, Hurley rau away. THe boys, in answer to the charge, said they were playing when Mrs. Hurlev came arid to. k them lo the garden r.he pat Hopkins on the wail, and after she had the pears *t.e r!in aw v \,u% ing she boy on the waii.
