I Astonishing Success. It is thet'duty of every person who has used Boschee's German Syrup to let its qualities be known to their friends in curing Consumption, severe Croup, Asthma Pneumonia; and in fact all throat and lung discuses.

Three doses will relieve any case, and we consider it the duty of all Druggists to recommend it to the poor, dying consumptive, at least to try one bottle, as 80,000 dozen bottles were sold last year, and no one case where it failed was reported. Such a medicine as the German Syrup cannot be too widely known.
