ria, 10, and Joint Amt**, B ot Ap : dauhtcola,
Florida, were all three affected with thia dis
agreeable malady; Maria in particular was in
a wretched plight with it, and although there
were many remedies tried, yet the malady
did not seem to decrease, indeed the disease
spread itself all over the surlace of the head,
lo the great annoyance of the parents and
discomfiture of the child. The blood of the
others was equally impure. At last the pa
rents put the three under a course of Hollo
way's Ointment and Pills, which cured them
•11 in the spaoe of nineteen days. Their health
has since gradually improved. These reme
dies are also wnnderlully efficacious in all
diseases of the skin.
PILW.~The combinations ol ingredients in
these Pills, is the result of a long and ex
tensive practice; they arc mild in their oper.
etiot-, and certain in restoring nature to its
proper chennel In every instance hive the
pills proved successful. The Pills invario
bly open those obstructions to which female*
•re liable, and bring nature into its proper
channel, whereby heath ia restored, and the
pale and deadly countenance changed to a
healthy one. No female can enjoy good
health unless she is egulat ; and whenever
an obstruction takes place, whether from ex
posure, cold, or any other cajae, tlifl general
health immediately begim to decline, and the
want of such e remedy ha- beer, the cause of
■o mtny consumptions among young teniale.
To ladies whose health will not permit an in
crease of lhe'r family, the-e Pills will prove
• valuable acquisition, ia they will prevent
pregnancy. Headache, pain in the side, pal
pitation of the heart, loathing of food, and
disturbed sleep do mns* alwav* arise from the
interruption of nature; and whenever that ia
the caer, the Pills will invariably remedy all
these evils. Nor are ihey less viliraciooa in
the cure of Leucotrhoea, commonly called the
"Whiles," These Pills should never be ta.
