No. 38 Wall Street, New York.

A Word to our Fair Readers.— Health the basis of Beauty.—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 liver. Upon these organs the famous aperient and tonic known as Holloway'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 to health.
