Chinese Cookery. —The skill of the Celestials in legerdemain is even exercised in their cookery, ard at a recent Chinese banquet to Americans in San Francisco, some very curious dishes were produced. Each guest, the San Francisco News Letter tells us, received an orange which appeared to be in its pristine condition, but on being opened, contained five different kinds of jelly. No trace was visible of any cut in the orange to extract the pulp. Coloured eggs were also tilled with jelly, nuts, meat, and sweets, in a similar manner. The interpreter, when asked for an explanation, declared “ Melican man heap smart, why he not findee out ?” Holloway's Pills. —These Pills are more efficacious in strengthening a debilitated constitution than any other medicine in the world. Persons of a nervous habit of body, and all who are suffering from weak digestive organs, or whose health has become deranged by bilious affection, disordered stomach, or liver complaints, should lose no time in giving these admirable Pills a fair trial. Coughs, colds, asthma, or shortness of breath are also within the range of the sanative powers of this very remarkable medicine. The cures effected by these Pills are not superficial or temporary, but complete any permanent. They are as mild as they are efficacious, aud may be given with confidence to delicate females and young children. Their action on the liver, stomach, and bowels is immediate, beneficial, and lasting, restoring order and health in every case.— Advt]
