HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT & PILLS. WHENEVER the weather is variable, and the temperature constantly changing, the weak and delicate must be very careful to neglect no symptom of disordered action or ill-health. Weak-chested and strumous subjects will find in these noble remedies the means of casting out the bad humours which originate and prolong their sufferings. The Ointment should be well rubbed twice a day over the chest and the Pills taken in alterative doses. It will penetrate and act most wholesomely and energetically on the diseased structure. These remedies manifest a wonderful power in removing all taints from the blood, and consequently in curing a multitude of chronic ailments, which seemed to be almost irremediable.

VISITORS TO LONDON

PAGE WOODCOCK'S WIND PILLS

MANCHESTER, June 13th, 1877. TO MR. PAGB D. WOODCOCK.

SIR-I have found your Pills an excellent preparation for the Constipation and Flatulency so common in both sexes. They possess great advantages over other Pills. Their uniformity in strength, the smallness of the dose, and the certainty of their action, commend them to those who require a Tonic to assist digestion, relieve Wind in the Stomach, exert a special influence on the Liver, and also the peristaltio motion of the Bowels, resulting from Chronic Indigestion and lack of Assimilation. The more my experience in their varied applicability extends, the more their beneficial effects appear, and many households have found a great friend in your preparation, for the promotion of a healthy digestion. Their favourable action are all that could be wished

for. I am, faithfully yours, THOS. FOSTER KER, Surgeon. Of all Medioine: Vendors at 1/11 and 2/9.
