so high, you know, Ma'am, and I let the fire go down; and I was so cold!"

it, and you have only to keep it to sell it. No remedy is more efficacious in
curing diarrhoea, cramps, dysentery, colds, coughs, slight wounds or bruises,
and many other ailments incidental to a soldier's life. It is light and
convenient to carry, and can be resorted to on the march as well as in camp
without trouble. Being used both internally and externally, its value can not be
over-estimate—in fact, the soldiers want it, and must have it, and to keep such
an article is the duty of every sutler.—Louisville Journal.

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 overcome the bad effects of previous use of
preparations containing sulphur, sugar of lead, &c. HOYT'S IMPERIAL COLORING
CREAM.An appropriate accompaniment to

HAVE YOU A CANCER? If so, you are
undoubtedly much troubled about it. Give yourself no undue anxiety concerning
it, but put yourself under the hands of Dr. Jones, and, if mortal skill can
avail, you may yet be saved. Do not wait until it gets beyond the reach of
remedy! Dr. Jones treats, also, with much success, that class of disease called
Nervous, and which arise from want of Nervous Vitality; such as Neuralgia,
Rheumatism, St. Vitus' Dance, Epilepsy, Dropsy, Torpid Liver, Constipation,
Lockjaw, Asthma, Lumbago, Ulcers, Crooked and Weak Spine, Irregular and
