Medical. STEEDMAN’S SOOTHING POWDERS FOR CHILDREN CUTTING TEETH. CAUTION TO PURCHASERS. The value of this well-known Family Medicine has been largely tested in all parts of the world, and by all grades of society, for upwards of FIFTY YEARS. Its well-earned extensive sale has induced SPURIOUS IMITATIONS, some of which in OUTWARD APPEARANCE so closely resemble the original as to have deceived many purchasers. The proprietor therefore feels it due to the public to give a special caution against the use of SUCH IMITATIONS. Purchasers are therefore requested carefully to observe the four following distinctive characteristics, without which none are I genuine : ist—ln every case the words JOHN STEEDMAN, CHEMIST, WALWORTH, SURREY, are engraved on the Government Stamp affixed to each packet. 2nd—Each Single Powder has directions lor the dose, and the words, John Steedman, Chemist, Walworth, Surrey, printed thereon. 3rd —The name, Steedman, is always spell with two EE’s. 4th —The manufacture is carried on solely at Walworth, Surrey. Sold in Packets by all Chemists and Medicine Vendors. Sold by Kempthorne, Prosser and Co., Auckland. £3 WHO is Mrs. WINSLOW? As this question is frequently asked, we shall simply say that she is a lady who for upwards of thirty years has untireingly devoted her time and talents as a female physician and nurse, principally among children. She has especially studied the constitution and wants of this numerous class, and, as a result of this effort and practical knowledge obtained in a lifetime as nurse and physician, she has compounded a SOOTHING SYRUP for Children. It operates like magic, giving rest and health, and is, moreover, sure to regulato the bowels. In consequence of this article, Mrs. Winslow is becoming world-renouned as a benefactor of her race. Children certainly do rise up and bless her. Especially is this the case in this city. Vast quantities of the Soothing Syrup sold and used here. We think Mrs Winslow has immortalised her name by this invaluable article, and we sincerely believe that thousands of children have been saved from an early grave by its timely use, and that millions yet unborn will share its benefits and unite in calling her blessed. No mother has discharged her duty to her suffering little one, in our opinion, until she has given it the benefit of Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup. Try it mothers, try it now.r=Ladies’ Visitor, New York City.
Advice to mothers.—Are you broken in your rest by a sick child, suffering with the pain of cutting teeth ? Go at once to the chemist and get a bottle of Mrs. WINSLOW’S SOOTHING SYRUP. It will relieve the poor sufferer immediately. It is perfectly harmless ; it produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving the child from pain, and the little cherub awakes “ as bright as a button. ” It has been in use in America, and is highly recommended by medical men. It is very pleasant to take; it sooths the child ; it softens the gums, allays all pain, relieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the best known remedy for dysentry and diarrhoea, whether arising from eething or other causes. Be sure and ask for Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup, and see that “Curtis and Perkins, New York and London,” is on the outside wrapper. No mother should be without it. Sold by all medicine dealers, at Is. Depot, 493, Oxford street.
