You can geta pair of spectacles that will keep Tour eyes in as good codtiion forever after as when lst you use them. These MXdicated Glasses have been thoroug.ly ez amined tad analyzed by Prof. Berger, the great French oculist, and Dr. Carl Hollander the famous German oculist, and pronounoce far superior to any glsLs as yet m4d~s and recommended as the only glasses to be uset save the eye. American oculists olasim that the MedIcated Glasses have no equal, and can in some cases restort the eye to Its original sight, when used in time, and nt no case can the eye beoonieimpaired by the use of these glasses, if properly adapted, for the following reasons : 1. The chemicals soften the light to the eye, comp etely doing away WIhb that tiresome sensation that is usually experienced in using glasses after of.i or two bours' .use. 2. The medicaoted properties contained in the glass mak.e it as hard as a diamond. It will retain its polish aLpd never become dull or imn, hence you will always see through it as bright-and clear as at first. 3. The chemicals keep the glasses cold as ice-result is, yourptic nerves always cool, doing away with any feverish sensation to the eye. 4. These glasses have no equal for night reading or sewing. With them you can 1at up all nigh±, and the light has no effect on the eye, with no tiresome sensation whatver, which necessarily continues to improve the eye. We suit all eyes and warrant our work, or money refunded. Persons living at a distance, desiring the Medicated Glasses, can be fitted by sending address with postage stame. The Medicated Glasses can only be had at 74 6t. Cl.arles Street, as we have no agents, nor do we employ peddlers.

Is a compound of the virtues of mare parilla, stillingia, mandrake, yellow dock, with the iodide of potash and iron, all powerful blood-making, blood-cleans ing, and life-sustkining elements. It is the purest, safest, and most effectual alterative available to the public. The sciences of medicine and chemistry have never produced a remedy so potent to cure all diseases resulting from impure blood. It cures Scrofula and all scrofulous dtiseases, Erysipelas, Rose, or St. Anthony's Fire, Pim ples and Face-grubs, Pustules, Blotches, Boils, Tumors, Tetter, Humors, Salt RIhenum Scald-head, Ring-worm, Ulcers, gores, Rheu matism, Mercurial Disease, Neu ralgia, Female eWeakneses and Irregularities, Jiaundice Affections of the Liver, Dyspepsia, Emacia. tion, and General I)ebility. By its searching and cleansing quali ties it purges out the foul corruptions which contaminate the blood and cause derangement and decay. It stimulates the vital functions, restores and pre serves health, and infuses new life and vigor throughout the whole system. No sufferer from any disease of the blood need despair who will give A~as's SARSAPARILLA a fair trial. It is folly to experiment with the nu merous low-priced mixtures, without medicinal virtues, offered as blood-puri fiers, while disease becomes more firmly seated. AYER's SARSAPARILLA is a medi cine of such concentrated curative power, that it is by far the best, cheapest, and most reliable blood-purifier known. SPhysiciansknow its compositio, -and prescribe it. It has been widely used for forty years, and has won the unqualf. fed confidence of millions whom it has benefited. PREPARED BY DR. J. C.
