The Ointment, used conjointly with Holloway's Pills, will act so searchingly and certainly as to effect cures in the most hopeless cases. BAD LEGS, BAD BREASTS, AND ULCERATIONS OF ALL KINDS. There is no medicinal preparation in the world which mav be so thoroughly relied upon in the treatment of the above ailments as Holloway's Ointment. Nothing can be so simple or safe as the manner in which it is applied, or its action on the body both locally and constitutionally. The Ointment, rubbed around the part affected, enters the pores just as salt enters meat. It quickly penetrates to the source of the evil and drives it from the system.

In cases of whooping cough and croup, this invaluable Ointment should be rubbed twice a-day upon the throat and chest, and the youngest invalid will derive therefrom the most soothing relief.
