A very nicely perfumed Hairdressing, ailed THE MEXICAN HAIR REIEWER, now being sold by most Chenists and perfumers througout the county, at 3s. 6d. per bottle, is fast supereding all the old restorers and dyes for he purpose of changing grey or white lair to its natural original color, for it rill positively restore the hair in every ase of greyness to its original color, withut dyeing it or leaving that offensive smell rhich most of the hair preparations of the [ay do. This preparation has never been mown to fail in restoring the hair to its latural color and gloss in from eight to welve days. It promotes growth and irevents the hair falling out, eradicating landruff', and leaving the scalp in a clean, lealthy condition. It imparts peculiar ■itality to the roots of the hair, restoring t to its youthful freshness and/vigor. )aily applications of this preparation for , week or two will surely restore faded, ;rey, or white hair to its natural color and ichness. It is not a dye, nor does it conain any coloring matter or offensive übstance whatever. Hence it does not oil the hands, the scalp, or even white inen, but produces the color within the übstance of the hair. Read the followng from Mr. Nathan Berry, Chemist, Valkden : “ 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 due 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 S 3 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 are characterised by a remarkable simplicity of combination, and whatever merit they may be found to possess depends as much upon the selection of pure drugs, and the unusual labor and attention bestowed upon their subsequent preparation, as upon the acknowledged 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 utatfl that they have been resorted 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 bozos at Is llsd, 2a 9d, 4a fid, and 11s Od, as well as in India, China, New Zealand, and the Australian Colonies.
