This delightful article for
preserving and beautifying the human hair is again put up by the original
proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention, which
first created its immense and unprecedented sales of over one million bottles
annually! It is still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two million bottles can
easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only
the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp
of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth, and
prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The
Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described.
Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is
finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers
throughout the world.

American Watches for Americans!
THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give
notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for
Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches
are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British and Swiss
manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to
keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country
because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling
We offer to sell our Watch, which
is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and
in Sterling Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at as low a price as is asked for the
fancy-named Ancres and Lepines of foreign make, already referred to.
We have named the new series of
Watches, WM. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of
every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks.
Sold by all respectable watch
dealers in the loyal States. Wholesale orders should be addressed to
