HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.
1 No sufferers need despair of being released from their infirmities till they have given a full and fair trial to these incomparable remedies. Diseases of the most formidable character have been cured by Holloway's medicaments. Ulcerations, which have proved themselves incurable by any other means, have healed kindly under the purifying and regenerating influence of this excellent Ointment. Sprains, erysipelas, stiff joints, contracted muscles, and glandular swellings can be most safely and effectively treated by Holloway's Ointment and Pills, which can do no harm under any circumstances. Neither of these medicaments has anything deleterious in its composition, both are soothing, searching, yet gentle in operation, and essentially purifying and strengthening in their nature.
