It is well known that butter, cream, milk, and flour are peculiarly liable to absorb effluvia, and should, therefore, never be kept in mouldy rooms, or placed where there are sour liquids, aromatic vegetables, such as onions, cabbages, and turnips, or smoked fish or bacon, or indeed any kind of food or thing of strong odour, lest they lose their flavor. But alas ! adds the Sanitarian, how much more essential is it that the utmost care be used in the prohibition of bedside food and drink in the nursery and the sick room—a practice fraught with constant danger to the sick, and of spreading disease to the well. Holloway’s Ointment and Pills.— Diseases of the skin, ringworm, scurvy, aundice, scrofula or king’s evil, sore heads, and he most inveterate skin disease to which the human frame is subject, cannot be treated with a more safe and certain 'emedy than Holloway’s Ointment and Pills, which act so perculiarly on the constitution and so purify the blood, that these diseases are at once eradicated from the system, and a lasting cure obtained.

The cures effected by them are not temporary or apparent only, but complete and permanent.
