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