Now, what every lover of music wishes to know is where they can get their wants well supplied, whether it be for instruments, music, tuning, or tuition. The address is H. J. Weeks, Messrs 0.

Rheumatism and Rheumatic gout are the most dreaded of all diseases, because their victims know they are safe at no season, and at no age secure. Holloway’s Ointment, after fomentation of the painful parts, gives greater relief than any other application ; but it must be diligently used to obtain this desirable result. It has been highly commended by rheumatic subjects of all ages and of both sexes, for rendering their attacks less frequent and less vigorous, and for repressing the sour persperations and soothing the nerves. In many cases, Holloway's Ointment and Pills have proved the greatest blessings in removing rheumatism and rheumatic gout which had assailed persons previously and at the prime of lite.—[Advt.]
