A SWEET AND

PERFUMED BREATH

VERSUS

A   BAD BREATH.

What lady or gentleman would remain under the curse of a disagreeable breath, when, by using the

BALM OF 1000 FLOWERS,

it would be cured ? How many lovers it has separated!!! How many friends forever parted! THE SUBJECT IS SO DELICATE, your nearest friend will not mention it; and you are yourself ignorant of the fact. To effect a radical cure, use the Balm as a tooth-wash night and morning.

The Balm of
THOUSAND FLOWERS

is a sweet and delightful preparation. It is composed of Palm-oil and honey: hence the name. The most

BEAUTIFUL WOMEN

of ancient times used honey to beautify their complexion; but the combination with palm-oil and other valuable ingredients makes. it still more valuable. For bathing suffering infants, a few drops poured into a basin of water will dispel all fever, tetter, &c. A few drops poured on your shaving-brush makes a beautiful soft lather, leaving the face pure and white.

When used for washing night and morning, it eradicates all Tan, Pimples, and Freckles, rendering the skin soft and white, and free from blemish.

Price 75 Cents. For sale by all Druggists.
