These Pills are the best preventive of boarretess. sore throat, diphtheria, pleurisy, and asthma, and are sure rebedies for congestion, bronchitis, and inflammation. A moderate attention to the directions folded round each box will enable every tarafid to take the Pills in the most advantageous manner; they will be taught the proper doses and the circumstances under which they must be increased or diminished. Holloway's Pilis act as alteratives, aperients, and topics. Whenever these Pilis have been taken as the last resource, the resalt has always been gratifying. They always assuage the severity of the amyptoms and diminish the danger.
