A very nicely perfumed Hairdressing, called THE MEXICAN HAIR RENEWER, now being sold by most Chemists and perfumers througout the country, at 3s. 6d. per bottle, is fast superceding all the old restorers and dyes for the purpose of changing grey or white hair to its natural original color, for it will positively restore the hair in every case of greyness to its original color, without dyeing it or leaving that offensive smell which most of the hair preparations of the day do. This preparation has never been known to fail in restoring the hair to its natural color and gloss in from eight to twelve days. It promotes growth and prevents the hair falling out, eradicating dandruff, and leaving the scalp in a clean, healthy condition. It imparts peculiar vitality to the roots of the hair, restoring it to its youthful freshness and; vigor. Daily applications of this preparation for a week or two will surely restore faded, grey, or white hair to its natural color and richness. It is not a dye, nor does it contain any coloring matter or offensive substance whatever. Hence it does not soil the hands, the scalp, or even white linen, but produces the color within the substance of the hair. Bead the following from Mr. Nathan Berry, Chemist, Walkden : “One of my customers told me the other day he had had grey hair for thirty-five years, and after using one bottle of the Mexican Hair Renewer 1 sold him, it was restored to and kept its natural color.” It may be had of any respectable Chemist, Perfumer, or Dealer in toilet articles in the kingdom, at 3s. fid. per bottle. —Prepared by HENRY C. GALLUP, No. 493, Oxford street, London. OCKLE’S ANTIBILIOUS PILLS— These Pills consist of a careful and peculiar admixture of the best and mildest vegetable aperients, with the pure extract of the flowers of the camomile. They will be found a most efficacious remedy for derangement of the digestive organs, and for torpid action of the liver and bowels, which produce indigestion and the several varieties of bilious and liver complaints. They speedily remove the irritation and feverish state of the stomach, allay spasm, correct the morbid condition of the liver and organs subservient to digestion, promote a duo and healthy secretion of bile, and relieve the constitution of all gouty matter and other impurities, which, by circulating in the blood, most injuriously affect the action of the kidneys ; thus, by removing the causes productive of so much discomfort, they restore the energies of both body and mind. To those who indulge in the luxuries of the table these pills will prove highly useful, occasioning no pain in their action, unless they meet with an unusual quantity of acrid bile and acid matter in the stomach and bowels. To Europeans on their arrival in India or China they are recommended as a preservative against the fatal disorders peculiar to tropical climates. Their occasional use, if combined with the strictest attention to diet, will be frequently found to remove at once, by their influence over the secretions, that congestive and unhealthy condition of the liver which is so often the earliest antecedent of severe febrile and constitutional disturbance. It must be understood that these pills are not recommended as containing any new or dangerously active ingredients; on the contrary, they ape characterised by a remarkable simplicity of combination, and whatever merit they may h® fo u ftd to possess depends as much nppn thp selection of pure drags, and th® unusual labor and attention bestowed upon their subsequent preparation, as upon the aoknowr lodged peculiarity of their composition, They are not recommended as a panacea, nor are they adapted to all complaints; but as a mild and efficacious aperient and tonic in the various forms of indigestion, it will not, perhaps, be an exaggeration to state that they have been respited to under all systems of diet, changes of climate, or atmospheric alternations with an extraordinary degree of success for upwards of seventy-eight years. .This, celebrated family aperient may be had throughout the United Kingdom in boxes at Is lid, 2s 9d, 4s fid, and 11s od, as well as m Indja, China, New Zealand, and the Australian Colonies.
