Putnam Clothes-Wringer. 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. JOHN C. LEFFERTS, No. 100 Beekman Street. New York, January, 1864. Patented in the United States, England, Canada, and Australia. Agents wanted in every town. No. 2, $5 50; No. 1, $6 00; No. A, $8.

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 appearance 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 over come 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.
