A HINT FOR THE SANITARY FAIR.
VISITOR. "But don't you
think you might have a little of your hair cut off without spoiling the general
GOLDEN-HAIRED LASS. " Oh no! I'm
keeping it all for the Fair ! I'll have Scissors, you know, and let the
Cavaliers cut off little locks of it at the current prices for gold."

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 and 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.

Hair Restorative. 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 front 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 everywhere. JOSEPH HOMYT & CO., 10

Another Brilliant Contributor
The New York Mercury.
Miss Harriet E. Prescott,
AUTHOR OF "AMBER GODS" AND OTHER
whose works of fiction have
placed her among the first in
The Front Rank
has been engaged to write for the
LEADING FAMILY PAPER OF THE COUNTRY, and her initial contribution, entitled
will appear in THE NEW YORK
MERCURY of March 19th, now ready everywhere at the News Depots.
Miss Harriet E. Prescott is the
daughter of the great American historian, William H. Prescott, whose fame is as
wide as the circle of civilization, and whose memory is cherished by his
countrymen with a feeling of veneration accorded no other author, with the
exception, perhaps, of Washington Irving. The daughter, like the father, has the
gift off genius, and her stories in the " Atlantic Monthly Magazine" have added
largely to the prestige and popularity of that able periodical, and she imparts
to every subject upon which her powerful pen is employed a fascinating interest.
To a mind richly stored with varied knowledge, she adds an imagination that is
fetterless in its flights, though it never soars into the region of the
impossible. Her latest production,
written expressly for THE NEW
YORK MERCURY, is founded upon a striking and very peculiar incident of the war,
portraying, with remarkable vivacity and brilliancy, the role played by the
Belle Boyds and other sirens of the Rebellion, and verifying the old adage, that
"Love rules the camp, the court, the grove."
The NEW YORK MERCURY is the
sharpest and most brilliant of all the literary weeklies, and expends more money
for eminent talent than any other paper. Terms of subscription, cash in advance,
$2 to year; three copies $5; six copies $9 ; eight copies $12; with an extra one
free to the clubber. Address CAULDWELL & WHITNEY, Publishers, 48 Ann and 113
