TESTIMONY OF MESSRS. JNO. W.
WHEELER, of Cleveland, Ohio, and John C. Lefferts, of New York. PUTNAM MFG. Co.:
GENTLEMEN : I know from practical
experience that iron well galvaizned with zinc will not oxidize and rust one
particle. I can safely say, after several years experience in the manufacture of
chain, for chain-pump and water drawers, in which I have tested the affinity of
iron and zinc, that, if the process is conducted properly, it is a perfact weld
of the two.
Nearly one year ago my family
commenced using one of your Wringers. It now performs all of its functions as
well as it did the first time it was used, and has become an indispensable
article with us. I have closely observed several other kinds of
clothes-wringers, the modus operandi being different, trying to produce the same
results as the Putnam Wringer. but in my judgment they have failed. The Putnam
Wringer is as near perfect as possible, and I can cheerfully recommend it to be
the best in use.
Respectfully yours, JOHN W.
WHEELER, Many years' experience in the galvanizing business enables me to
indorse the above statement in all particulars.

HOYT'S HIAWATHA FAIR RESTORATIVE.
The standard preparation for the
hair. Warranted in all cases to restore faded and gray hair and whiskers to
their ORIGINAL color. It restores the natural shading of one hair with another,
and thus gives a life apperance instead of the dull dead black of dyes, so that
the most critical observer can not detect its use. It does not require previous
soaping and washing, and hours for its application, nor does it stain the skin;
but is as readily applied and easily wiped from the skin as any hair-dressing.
It does not claim to make the hair come in when it has once fallen out; nothing
will do that, whatever may be advertised to the contrary; but it will prevent it
from falling out, make it soft and silky, and cleanse it and the scalp from all
impurities and humors, and entirely overcome the bad effects of previous use of
preparations containing sulphur, sugar of lead, &c.
Hoyt's Imperial Coloring Cream.
An appropriate accompaniment to
the Hiawatha ; oils and colors the hair at the same time, and changes light and
red hair to a beautiful brown or black. Sold every where.
N.B.--Ladies' French hair-dresser
in attendance to apply the Hiawatha.
