PILULAE ALOES COMPOSITAE.
Compound Pills of Aloes.

These pills are well adapted to keep the bowels regular. They act as a gentle laxative, and restore the tone and action of the stomach and bowels. They may be used without any restriction as to diet or drink.

A child of one to five years old, may take half a pill; from five to ten years old, one pill ; from ten to fifteen years, two pills; and persons over fifteen, three pills.

The most suitable time for taking these pills, is at night, before going to rest ; unless it should interfere with other medicines, to be taken at night ; in which case, they may be taken for the first thing in the morning; and afterwards, breakfast eaten as usual. They may be taken in fresh water, milk, apple-butter, bread, syrup of any kind, or in any thing palatable, in which they can be swallowed.

They may be taken every day, so as to keep the bowels regular, until they are all used, or until they are no longer necessary. Should they cause the bowels to become too loose, smaller doses may be taken, or they may be omitted a few days. Should they, if taken according to the above doses, not keep the bowels regular, or moderately loose, the doses may be gradually enlarged, until the dose is ascertained which will have the desired effect.

These pills are prepared only in New-Market, Shenandoah county, Va., by
Dr. SOLOMON HENKEL.
