3lore Light on Electric Lighting Ij Henlo
rark Wizard's Counsel
Notwithstanding suggestions of Jarndyce
Vs Jarndyce, the case of "Westinghouse vs
Edison evidently grows in interest from day
to day. That olaclc hole called the United
States Circuit Court room was crowded to
Its utmost yesterday. A considerable por
tion of the crowd was composed of members
of the Allegheny county bar, but business
men's faces predominated. It is supposed
that the fact that no matter in what light
you looked at the case you saw marked all
over it this figure "$," had some effect to
draw. The decision of the case will trans
fer much of what the character represents
irom one set of pockets to another.
Mr. Thomas A. Edison sat at the counsel
table, and though evidently listening closely
did not exhibit any unusually apparent inter
est, and his smoothly shaven face and the gen
eral contour of his features suggested ex-Secretary
of State Bayard. The proceedings were
as on the day previous enlivened from time to
time by their honors asking questions. When
Mr. Grosvenor P. Lowrey referred to Sawyer
as a man of intemperate habits, who might
havo fared better and had more success. Judge
WcKennan wanted to know If Mr. Lowrey un
derstood the temperance laws of this State.
Mr. Lowrey said he did not. but he had a
Xnend who suffered greatly from thirst last
Sunday. The visiting counsel evidently
hadn't got onto the "speak-easles." There is
eUU another of the "furrin" attorneys in the
case' on the side of the defense. W. D. Don
nelly, Esq. He is associated with Mr. Richard
2?. Dyer, who made the argument in the after
noon. IT IS 12 YEARS OLD.
Mr. Lowrey, on resuming his argument, said
the incandescent lamp started to burn in
ilenlo Park in 1S77 and has continued just as it
was then constructed. Edison, he said, gave
the light to the world and it was the plaintiffs
who infringed on them, and not the defendants
on the plaintiffs. .Mr. Lowrey contended that
the use of carbons was an old story. Alluding
to the Sawjer-Mann lamp, he said it was
neither the father nor mother of the Edison
lamp, but might be called a mule in science.
Mr.Xowrey gave a general history of the var
ious experiments of Mr. Edison, and read
opinions from various scientific men who in
1879 discredited the fact that Edison had per
fected his light and had sub-divided electric
light. A lamp was exhibited which Mr. Low
rey said was used by Mr. Edison in his experi
ments in 1877. It was then discovered by Edison
that be must have a perfect vacuum to produce
a perfect incandescent light. He worked then
to find something that would give a high resist
ance conductor and the result was this fine
fibrous filament, he then used and now uses,
the bamboo fiber. The speaker said there
would be no electric light, out for the wonder
ful genius of Edison. The discovery of the use
of bamboo was an accident. Exogenous woods,
are of no use in making the fine fibrous fila
ments and Edison soon found this and when
he discovered tbat bamboo was needed he sent
to Japan and China to procure specimens of
the fine fiber which grows immediately under
the bark. Mr. Edison experimented with over
6,000 kinds of bamboo and of these only three
or four can be used. Mr. Lowrey finished his
argument after the noon recess.
Richard N. Dyer, Esq., followed Mr. Lowrey
or the defense, and the part assigned to him
was almost entirely technical. He had a large
chart and a large number of drawings illustra
ting the advance in electricity since 1S00, when
patents were first taken out in England, and
since the discovery of the voltaic batteries.
Air. Dyer said that it was not the quest' on of
material to make household lighliu. but that
it required a new invention, which was bt-ncht
about by Mr. Edison, and which was not known
by Sawyer & Mann. The chart was then re
sorted to and electric lamps patented by De
Moleyn in 1S11, showing the nse of boxwood
as a carbon, and a lamp Invented by
Xing, an Englishman, in ISIS, and other inno
vations all showing the idea of incandescent
lighting. The gradual improvements in
electricity from 1853 to 1S72, and finally the last
and grandest improvement by Edison. Mr.
Dyer claimed that the light invented in 1872 by
Xoun was in reality what caused the after
thought of the arc system. The speaker
claimed it was not the character of the burner
that was to make the electric light a success;
something yet remained to be discovered, and
if Sawyer A Mann had discovered that why
did they keep it quiet and not give it to the
world, as Mr. Sawyer testified that not one of
their lights had been sold. Mr. Dyer closed by
heading a statement of Prof. Barker on the nse
ol carbonized paper.
Cadge Ewlng Settles n Texed Question
About Corner Sewer.
The jury is out in the case of Allegheny
City against Andrew D. Miller, an action
on a municipal lien for a sewer assessment
During the trial of the case an important point
was ruled upon by Judge Ewing. Miller owns
a large piece of ground, a full square, on Wash
ington avenue. The place is valued at about
$100,000 and the assessment for a sewer on
Washington avenue amounted to $1,000. The
assessment was made on the frontage on Wash
ington avenue. Miller claimed that the front
age of the place was next to the Fort Wayne
Railroad tracks, and he held that be was en
titled to a reduction of 50 per cent on the as
sessment, the same as on a corner lot, when the
sewer was on the side street
City Attorney Elphinstone contested this
claim, holding that the place was not divided
into lots, and the front was as much on Wash
ington avenue as anywhere else, hence bo was
entitled to pay a full assessment Judge
Ewing took the same view and so ruled in
favor of the city.

MB. GEORGE LAMBERT, who lives on
Jones avenue, this city, near Twenty-seventh
street, has been cured of a very bad case of
catarrh by the physicians of the Polypatblc
Medical Institute. 1 o. 420 Penn avenue. When
he applied for treatment be complained of
much soreness In his luBgs,sbortness of breath,
a choked up feeling in his throat, with much
dryness; the catarrhal secretion tbat he raised
from his throat and luncs was very tough and
tenacious; his eyes were weak and troubled
him very much about reading or seeing ob
jects distinctly. The disease also extended to
his stomach, so that he had great pain after
eating. On account of his food souring on
his stomach be had much belching of gas, and
was so bloated that his heart would frequently
palpitate, and cave him so much pain that be
thought he had heart disease. After becoming
cured, as above stated, he says:
"I am very glad to give my testimonial, and
shall always speak in praise of the doctors to
my many friends for curing me of this dread
ful disease, and I cheerfully recommend all
others suffering from chronic diseases to call
on these specialists, who will frankly tell you
what they can do for yon.

she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of her back and lower
part of her body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered -with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that she
only weighed 93 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After
receiving three months' treatment with the
physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Insti
tute, 323 Fenn avenue, who make a specialty of
her disease, she says:
"I never want any one to suffer as I have for
the past IS years. The condition of my case

EIENOR Another Patient Whom the Physi
oiana Failed to Help
Cured by Dr. Smith, the Magnetio
Physician, at 602 Penn
Dr. Smith is performing some of the most
wonderful cures ever witnessed in Pittsburg.
Scores and hundreds of invalids who have
hitherto been nnable to find relief from their
sufferings are being restored to health in large
numbers through Dr. Smith's strange magnetic
power. It is exceedingly interesting to see
and talk with the vast number of invalids suf
fering from all manner of complaints who are
brought to the doctor for bis favorable or un
favorable opinion of their diseases. It is also
gratifying to observe the change that takes
place in many of these seemingly helpless cases.
Scores of invalids who are so weak and feeble
that they have to be carried to tho doctor In
chairs and on beds are restored to health in a
short time. Some are cured by one, some by
two magnetic treatments, while others require
more. The following very interesting cases
were cured by our magnetic treatment:
Mr. Geo. T. Hartrey, who resides at Bpring
dale, Pa., has been a great sufferer from con
sttpation hemorrhoid (piles) and from fistulas
for a number of years. Pile tumors as large as
a black walnut made their appearance several
years ago. and were the cause of much suffer
ing. These tumors were often prolapsed, and
would bleed so profusely as to cause extreme
prostration. As the disease advanced four fis
tulas made their appearance, and were so pain
ful tbat he was obliged to give up his business,
and was unablo to perform any manual labor.
Mr. Hartrey had tried the skill of a number of
physicians but had been unable to find relief
until he applied to Dr. Smith, the magnetio
physician, at No. 602 Penn avenue, who cured
him permanently without fhe nse of the knife
orltgature. Dr. Smith agreed to cure him for
a certain sum of money, which Mr. H. paid
mm ai. mo uegiuuiuc 01 tne treatment, air.
Hartrey was permanently cured in a short
time and may be referred to.
Mr. Peet, owner and manager of Imperial
Hall was a great surlerer from verlcocefe for
many years. He applied to Dr. Smith and was
Sirmanently cured. He may be referred to.
r. John Foley, who resides at Millvale, was
taken with a terrible pain in his right shoulder
npward of five months ago. The attack came
on suddenly, like a shock of paralysis. The
arm became useless in a few moments' time.
He could not use the hand nor move a finger.
A short time after the attack he began to ex
perience pain .in the shoulder. The pain In
creased In severity for a number of days, when
it was discovered that there was an accumula
tion of pus in the shoulder joint. Mr. Foley
applied to a doctor, who opened the shoulder
with the knife. Large quantities of pus was
discharged ,at the time and a fistula formed,
which continued to discharge a thin acrid pus.
In this helpless and hopeless condition he ap
plied to Dr. Smith, the 'magnetic physician,
at 502 Fenn avenue, and was cured per
fectly. He basjregalned the use of his arm.
J. C. Henderson had been tortured with piles
for ten years. He was cured by Dr. Smith in
one week.
Dr. Smith cures all forms of female com
nlalnts without the use of instruments or ex
posure of the person. He also cures piles and
rupture without the use of the knife, or pain
to the patient, nor detention fiom business.
He treats and cures cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 602 Penn
avenue, where everybody can go from 9 a. m.
till 7 P. x. The doctor consults free and cures
after all other means fail. He treats every
form of disease known to humanity. Go to

While it is impossible to avoid attacks of ill
ness and to finally conquer the great destroyer.
Death, there is abundant evidence to prove
that there are agencies within tho reach of
skill and science capablo of correcting the ten
dencies of disease, and restoring enfeebled
enereies to their healthy functions. Life cer
tainly cannot be made perpetual: but it can
doubtless bo prolonged by judicious treatment,
and misery and suiferlns can be prevented.
The idea that disease trill spend itself without
the aid of mediSal skill is as absurd as to sup
pose that the lairs of nature are without pur
pose and direction. It is the same in the ani
mal as In the vegetable kingdom. Vfben a
tree shows signs of weakness or decay it is by
care that its vitality is restored. Leave it alone
and tho process of decay will advance, and in a
short time a dead trunk only will remain.
But, attend to it, water its roots, protect it
from blighting winds, etc., and it will again
nourish as it it had never given evidence of
feebleness. So it is with the human being; for
it nothing be done to control colds, fevers,
lung, liver and kidney affections, and a thous
and and one other diseases to which flesh is
heir, they are certain to obtain headway, break
down the most vigorous constitutions, and,
after a longer or shorter time of wretchedness
and suffering, end life. Thousands die every
year from neglect resulting from carelessness,
prejudice, orsome other blameable cause. Fam
ilies are depleted, fond ties severed, torturing
anxieties produced, and endless miseries pro
tracted from one generation to another by
reason of overlooking the commencement of
disease and delaying medical treatment. Fatal
beyond conception is this carelessness in regard
to health and life, for without health therecan
be no happiness, and when life ends, all is
darkness and mystery.
After carefully considering these circum
stances every one will recognize the import
ance of consulting a skillful and experienced
physician as Boon as the existence of any dis
ease is detected. The delay is always danger
ous, and may prove fatal. The principal point
to decide is the choice of a doctor. Advanced
medical science alone, as practiced by Sr.
Woods, can meet the demands of the case, and
be wishes to impress upon young and old alike
the importance of retaining, if possessed, and
regaining, if lost, the full force of physical and
nervous energy. Sr. Woods thoroughly under
stands the treatment of such cases, as is proved
hy the fact that a large number of young peo
ple who consulted him when in a state of de
bility have regained powerful constitutions.
He likewise gives attention to people advanced
in age whose systems bavelostvitallty. Broken
down constitutions come within one of his
greatest specialties as a practicing physician,
and the amount of good he has done in restor
ing health and strength is simply incalculable.
j.110 nrsi principle 01 nis Treatment is to stop
the disease and then restore the vital organs
to- their proper functions. He repairs and
builds up the constitution, so that the whole
system is made new. The truth of this is
shown by the fact tbat his patients gain from
.10 to 0 pounds in from one to three months.
Dr. Woods can refer to hundreds of well
known and influential citizens whom he has
restored to perfect health after their diseases
were considered incurable, and in many in
stances they had given up all hope of ever real
izing the sense of good health again.
When possible the doctor prefers to see his
patients; but when this is impossible his suc
cessful system of treatment by correspondence
enables the afflicted in all parts of tho world to
avail themselves of the benefit of his skill at a
very small cost. Send 4 cents in stamps for
question list. All communications sacredly
confidential. No charge' for advice. Exam
