MAKING ONE'S FRIENDS USEFUL.
BORDER COPPERHEAD. "Glad
to see you and your men, General. I've allus stood up for the South, and cussed
the Yankees. I'm your friend, and allus has been. You won't take nothin' of
mine, will you, General?"
REBEL GENERAL. "Of course,
we won't take any thing from you. But, as you're our friend, you'll be glad of a
chance to help us. We want all your Cattle, and Horses, and Grain, and we'll pay
you in Confederate Notes for all you have. Here, boys! be lively, and take along
whatever our friend has that will help the Cause."
(COPPERHEAD thinks himself sold.)
A Word to our Fair Readers. —
Health the basis of Beaut.--Pimples, blotches, and all skin diseases. —A clear
complexion is not only essential to female loveliness, but it is equally an
external evidence of health—while sallowness, pimples, and all cutaneous
eruptions are indicative of a disturbed condition of the stomach and liver. Upon
these organs the famous aperient and tonic known as HoIloway's Pills, act with a
directness, precision, and rapidity unparalleled in Medical Science, while the
Ointment purges the vesicles of the skin, and imparts a brilliancy and roseate
tint to that delicate envelope. All who value health and beauty should beware of
tampering with cosmetics, as they are not only pernicious but highly dangerous

remain under the curse of a disagreeable breath, when, by using the
BALM OF THOUSAND FLOWERS,
it would be cured? How many

ignorant of the fact. To effect a radical cure, use the Balm as a tooth-wash
night and morning.

few drops poured into a basin of waterwill dispel all fever, tetter, &c.
