Piling up the Agony. —A London publishing firm are about to publish the secrets of the “agony column” of the Times A lady who has studied the column for the first seventy years of'this century, and has found a key to most of the ciphers, has written out her discoveries in full, and they will : bo published shortly under the title of “ The Agony Column from 1800 to 1880. ” Holloway’s Ointment and Pills.— Though it is impossible, in this' climate of changing temperature, to prevent ill-health altogether, yet its form and frequency may be much mitigated by the early adoption of remedial measures. When hoarseness, cough, thick breathing, and the attending slight fever indicate irritation of the throat and chest, Holloway’s Ointment should be_ rubbed .upon these parts without delay, and his Pills taken in appropriate doses, to promote its curative action. No catarrhs or sore throats can resist these remedies. Printed directions envelope every package of Holloways medicaments, which are suited to all ages and conditions, and to every ordinary disease to which humanity is liable.—Advt.
