COCKLE’S ANTIBILIOUS PILLS— These Pills consist of a careful and peculiar admixture of the best and mildest vegetable aperients, with the pure extract of the flowers of the camomile. They will be found a most efficacious remedy for derangement of the digestive organa, and for torpid action of the liver and bowels, which produce indigestion and the several varieties of bilious and liver complaints. They speedily remove the irritation and feverish state of the stomach, allay spasm, correct the morbid condition of the liver and organs subservient to digestion, promote a due and healthy secretion of bile, and relieve the constitution of all gouty matter and other impurities, which, by circulating in the blood, most injuriously affect the action of the kidneys ; thus, by removing the causes productive of so much discomfort, they restore the energies of both body and mind. To those who indulge in the luxuries of the table these pills will prove highly useful, occasioning no pain in their action, unless they meet with an unusual quantity of acrid bile and acid matter in the stomach and bowels. To Europeans on their arrival in India or China they are recommended as a preservative against the fatal disorders peculiar to tropical climates. Their occasional use, if combined with the strictest attention to diet, will be frequently found to remove at once, by their influence over the score- j tions, that congestive and unhealthy condition of the liver which is so often the earliest antecedent of severe febrile and constitutional disturbance. It must be understood that these pills are not recommended as containing any new or dangerously active ingredients ; on the contrary, they are characterised by a remarkable simplicity of combination, and whatever merit they may be found to possess depends as much upon the selection of pure drugs, and the unusual labor and attention bestowed upon their subsequent preparation, as upon the acknowledged peculiarity of their composition, They are not recommended as a panacea, nor are they adapted to all complaints ; but as a mild and efficacious aperient and tonic in the various forms of indigestion, it will not, perhaps, be an exaggeration to state that they have been resorted to under all systems of diet, changes of climate, or atmospheric alternations with an extraordinary degree of success for upwards of seventy-eight years. This celebrated family aperient may be had throughout the United Kingdom in boxes at Is l£d, 2s 9d, 4s 6d, and 11s Od, as well as in India, China, New Zealand, and the Australian Colonies.
