ROBERT LoWE (now Lord SHER- BROOKE) a few years ago, in his speech on N Education at Halifax Mechanics' Institute, said:— If you give a child instruction, you have given "him the potentiality of possessing any amount of knowledge he pleases. Another thing I will men- "tion for the benefit of those young men who are wishful to possess that amount of knowledge—one "or two excellent books, which, if they would read would place them in a position, and give them an intelligent power of judging of the world and the things around them superior to that of many "honourable and other gentlemen with whom "I am acquainted. NOW, THE FIRST "BOOK WHICH I WILL RECOMMEND IS CASSELL'S EDUCATOR. A man who has "read, and thoroughly knows the contents of this, 18 a man who will understand the greatest "part of what is going on around him, which is "a great deal more than can be said of the best "Greek or Latin scholar, or even the accom- "plished lawyer."

The seeds of these disorders are effectually expelled by this penetrating Unguent, not only from the superficial parts, but from the internal tissues likewise. Any case, even of twenty years' standing, speedily yields to its influence. A Certain Cure for Bronchitis, Diphtheria, Sore Throat, Asthma, &o. Dor caring sore throat, diphtheria, bronchitis, asthma, tight- ness of the chest, and pain in the side-which instant treatment alone prevents degenerating into more serious maladies, this Ointment has the same powers over chest complaints as a blister possceses, without causing pain or debility. Old asthmatic in- valids will derive marvellous ease from the use of this Ointment, which, has brought round many such sufferers and re-established health after every other means had signally failed. Bad Legs, Bad Breasts, Old Sores, and Ulcers. By rubbing the Ointment round the affected parts, It pene- trates to the tissues beneath, and exercises a wonderful power on all the blood flowing to, and_ returning from, the diseased part. The inflammation dimini shes, the p'tin becomes less intolerable, the matter thicker, and a cure is soon effected. In all long-standing cases, Holloway's Pills should also be taken, as they will thoroughly expel all depraved humours from the body. Gout, Rheumatism, Stiff Joints. Gout and Rheumatism arise from inflammation in the parts affected. To effect a permanent cure, adopt a cooling diet, drink plenty of water, take six of Holloway's Pills night and morning, and rub this Ointment most effectually twice a-day into the Buffering parts; when used simultaneously, they drive all inflam mation and depression from the system, subdue and remove all enlargement of the joints, and leave the sinews and muscles lax and uncontracted. Both the Ointment and Pills should be used in the following complaints:— Bad Legs Corns (Soft) I Scalds Bad Breasts Fistulas Sore Throats Burns Gout Skin Diseases Bunions Glandular Swellings Scurvy Chilblains Lumbago Sore Hcadl Chapped Hands Piles Tumour* Contracted and Stiff Rheumatism Ulcers Joints Sore Nipples Wounds The Ointment and Pills are sold at Professor HOM-OWAY'S Establishment, 583, Oxford Street, London; also by nearly every respectable Vendor of Medicine throughout the Civilised World,in Pots and Boxes, at Is. lid., 2s. 9&, 4s.'6d., lis., 22s., and 83a. each.

ARE admitted by thousands to be worth a GUINEA A BOX for bilious and nervous disor- ders, such as wind and pain in the stomach, sick headache, giddiness, fulness and swelling after meals, dizziness and drowsiness, cold chills, flush- ing of heats, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, costiveness, scurvy blotches on the skin, disturbed leep, frightful dreams, and all nervous and rembling sensations, &c. The first dose will give relief in twenty minutes. This is no fiction, for they have done it in thousands of cases. Eveiy sufferer is earnestly invited to try one box of these Pills, and they will be acknowledged to be WORTH A GUINEA A BOX. For females of all ages these Pills are invaluable, as a few doses of them carryoff all gross humours, open all obstructions, and bring about all that is required. No female should be without them, There is no medicine to be found to equal BEECHAM'S PILLS for removing any obstruc- tion or irregularity of the system. If taken according to the directions given with each box they will soon restore females of all ages to sound and robust health. For a week stomach, impaired digestion, and all disorders of the liver, they act like "MAGIC," and a few doses will be found to work wonders upon the most important organs in the human machine. They strengthen the whole muscular system, restore the long lost complexion, bring back the keen edge of appetite, and arcmse into action with the ROSEBUD of health the whole physical energy of the human frame.-These are "FACTS" admitted by thousands, embracing all classes of society, and one of the best guarantees to the nervous and debilitated is, BEECHAM'S PILLS have the largest sale of any patent medicine in the world. BEECHAM'S MAGIC COUGH PILLS. As a remedy for Coughs in general, asthma, difficulty of breathing, shortness of breath, tight- ness and oppression of the chest, wheezing, &c., these Pills stand unrivalled. They speedily remove that sense of oppression and difficulty of breathing which nightly deprive the patient of rest. Let any person give BEECHAM S COUGH PILLS a trial, and the most violent cough will in a short time be removed. CAUTION.—The public are requested to notice that the words "BEECHAM'S PILLS, St Helens,' are on the Government Stamp affixed to each box of the Pills. If not on, they are a forgery.
