JOHN DANIEL THOMAS, High Bailiff. 5538 CELEBRATED FRENCH SCOURING & CLEANSING POWDER, The quickest and easiest ever yet discovered for its cleansing qualities without Soap or Labour. THIS celebrated Powder is a recent discovery, — being a chemical preparation by which every descrip- tion of cleansing and scouring can be effected in a very short time. Boarded floors, however black and greasy, will, when once cleaned look equal to new; brick and stone floors, however long, neglected, will, by one applica- tion, be restored to their original color; walls, wainscotting, deal tables, counters, weights and scales; furniture of every description; fire-irons, fenders, pewter pots, brasses, &c., beautifully polished bedsteads and old walls cleaned. Wherever this Powder is used no vermin can exist, and the foulest places made clean, wholesome, and healthy. No Housekeeper once using French Powder will ever be without it, and one trial will show its value. House and Yacht Painters are now using this Powder for cleansing doors, paint work, walls, &c., and find it to be the quickest and easiest scouring article in the market. Important to Yachts, H.M. Navy, and Merchant Ships. -Nothing that has yet been introduced will cleanse t'1e decks and flooring of shipping, paint work, &c., so quickly and easily as this Powder, and with comparatively little labour make the decks and floors as white as new, without the least injury to the planks and caulking (hence avoiding holystoning), and the ship cleaned in half the time. The French Powder is now used in all noblemen's man- sions, government offices, railway stations, hospitals, I hotels, barracks, unions, public institutions, shops, and thousands of private houses. One trial will be sufficient to prove its value, and the demand there must eventually be for so useful an article. PRICE TO PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS ON APPLICATION. Sold by all respectable Grocers, in every town in England, at 3d. per lb. lib. equal to 31bs. of soap. Bugs and Fleas instantly destroyed by using the French Powdes for bed rooms, &c. gS" Messrs. GRAN1' <& CO. caution the Public against any spurious article. ENTERED AT STATIONERS' HALL. Wholesale agent for South Wales and Shropshire J. TILLY; Stores at Messrs. James and Price's yard, Cardiff.
