American Watches

For Soldiers


American Watches for Americans!

THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British and Swiss manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling purposes.

We offer to sell our Watch, which is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and in Sterling Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at as low a price as is asked for the fancy-named Ancres and Lepines of foreign make, already referred to.

We have named the new series of Watches, WM. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks.

Lyon's Kathairon.

This delightful article for preserving and beautifying the human hair is again put up by the original proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention, which first created its immense and unprecedented sales of over one million bottles annually! It is still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two million bottles can easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth. and prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described. Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon.

Rye Coffee


Since the recent discovery in Brooklyn of the injurious effects of using Coffee adulterated with smut Rye, many thousands are asking what they shall do, having already suffered so much from the evil effects of this unfortunate war, and now to be deprived of their favorite beverage in consequence of the almost prohibitory price, is indeed really too bad, as it is not only a luxury, but to many thousands almost an absolute necessity, and he who can furnish a good and healthy article of Coffee at a fair price is a public benefactor, and is deserving of the gratitude of the people at large. We have seen and used such an article, known as the "GOLDEN RULE, COFFEE," of which there are spurious articles in the market. The genuine is prepared only by GROOM BROTHERS & Co., wholesale grocers, and proprietors of the golden Rule Coffee and Spice Mills, No. 352 Pearl St. and No. 1 Franklin Square. It has been analyzed by the eminent chemist J. R. Chilton, of New York, and we have seen his certificate, in which he says there is nothing in the Coffee injurious, but, on the contrary, it is very healthy and nutritious (even for invalids). Drs. Bauer and Palmedo (of the Brooklyn rye-poisoning case notoriety) also say it is healthy and nutritious. It is sold by many grocers at the low price of 16 cents per pound, and by using we find that it takes no greater quantity than we always use of the pure Java and Rio Coffee. All should try it.
