OINTMENT and PILLS effect wonderful cures of bad legs and wounds. If these medi. cines be used according to the directions which are wrapped round each pot and box, there is no wound, bad leg, or ulcerous sore, however obstinate, but will yield to their curative properties. Numbers of perBons who had been patients in the large hospitals, and under the care of eminent surgeons, without deriving the least benefit, have been cured by Holloway's Ointment and Pills when other remedies had signaliy falled. For glar dolar swellings, tumours, scurvy, and diseases of the skin there is no medicine that can be used with so good an effect. Though potent for good, it is powerless for harm; and though the cure 1 effects is rapid, it is also complete and permanent.
