Holloway's Pills.—Pure Blood. —As the vital fluid, when in a healthy state, sustain and renovates every part of the living system, so, when it becomes impoverished or impure it exerts a precisely contrary effect. lt_ is abundantly manifest that any medicine which does not reach the circulation can never exterminate the disease ; but any preparation capable of exercising a salutary influence over the blood, must with it be carried to every living fibre of the frame.
