PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
MOSES' HAIR INVIGORATOR
To prevent baldness, restore hair that
has fallen off or become thin and to cure effectually scurf or dandruff.
It will also relieve the Headache, and give the hair a darker and glossy
color, and the free use of it will keep both the skin and hair in a
healthy state. Ladies will find the Invigorator a great addition to
toilette, both in consideration of the delicate and agreeable perfume
and the great facility it affords in dressing the hair, which, when
moist with it, can be dressed in any required form, so as to preserve
its place whether plain or in curls. When used on children's heads,
it lays the foundation for a good head of hair.

To Whom It May Concern,
This is to certify that from some cause
or complaint of the head our hair commenced falling out so readily that
we feared we should lose the whole. In this condition we went to W.
D. Moses, and strange to relate, in three applications of his wonderful
Hair Restorative our hair became as strong as ever, and is now soft
and lively. We make this certificate with pleasure, believing it to
be for the public good.

The Universal Practice of mixing Chicory
and other adulteratives with Coffee, has very much damaged in public
estimation, what ought to be the most deli cious of Beverages. So effectively
have the public been drugged with such mixtures that the true properties
have been lost sight of, and many prefer a black and thick infusion
to a drink rich in spirit and aroma. General as is the use of Coffee,
it is little known that in condensing the vapors extracted from the
berry in roasting, a liquor is obtained of the most nauseous taste and
of a scent the most unbearable. Under such circumstances it is evidently
important that all the gases and fluids extracted by roast ing should
be carried off as quickly as possible in order to prevent their returning
again to the Coffee which is the case in the confined cylinder. This
object is admira bly accomplished by the new and patent "Conical
Coffee Roaster" as used by FELL & CO., Victoria, in which the
berry is directly exposed to the radiated heat, and the vapor extracted
carried off instantaneously. In addition to the advantage to be derived
by the rapid removal of the steam containing the objectionable properties,
the pure aroma of the Coffee is retained; the essential oil being preserved
and not exhausted as in the Cylinder, Roaster, where the Coffee is required
to remain a much longer time in consequence of the steaming it under
goes by the confined steam. It is chemically impossible to retain the
qualities or arrest the deterioration of Coffee when ground. The heat
engendered by the process of roasting, and especially of grind ing,
creates an action to the elementary parts which gradually destroys the
fine ness of drink. But to retain the essential oil which it contains
we have it encased in tins containing from 4lb to 28lb, and which can
be had from any of the respectable dealers. We can confidently recommend
those who hither to been obliged to refrain from tak ing Coffee on account
of its ill effects, that they may use our Coffee, roasted in the Conical
Roaster, being recommended by all medical men under whose notice it
has been brought and by numerous other testimonials in its favour.
