A Word to our Fair Readers.—Health
basis of Beauty.—Pimples,
clear complexion is not oily essential
to female lovelienss, 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 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
who value health and beauty should beware of tampering
as they are not only pernicious but highly
dangerous to health.
