THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,

TAMES HARRIS, ELECTRICIAN, Or Towanda, respect
'fully informs the public that he has lately procured
from New York the elebrated Electra-Chemical Bath,
which has proven to he one of the most important and
wonderful discorerieii of the age, from its ability to extract
mineral, from the human ,y,tein.
Some eight years ago. a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered the process of extracting minerals from the body.
by galeani ; more recently. M. Verges, of New York.
an eleetro-gilder. baying suffered from the introduction of
poi-mots minerals into his system in the prosecution of
bis art. conceived the idea of mooting them by the .same
processes. he soeceetled doing .io. and quit kit recovered.
He then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected. with like results. His SIIICMOI exceeded his most
sanguine expectations. for not only did these Baths remove
mineral pois.ms, but cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of minerals, ana some were not.
More recent experiments have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may he lodged therein, to the great detriment
of health. Very often persons are afflicted by diseases
which are beyond the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, and withal are the effect of poisonous mine
rids accumulating iu the system for years, taken in the
shape of calomel, lead,
The following ore some of the diseases cured by these
baths: Rheumatism, Paralysis, Palsy, Painter's Cholic,
Chronic Ulcers. Glaothilar Swellings, Scrofula. Cancer,

Is a great improvement on the Magnetic machines hereto
fore in use. With the aid of the. Bath and Machine, we
have at command all the available medical efficiency of
Electricity. The medical power of the M,achine is very
great, in mtrodueing medicines into the system through'
the pores of the skin--applying it directly to the parts af
fected. which gives an increase of medicinal power over
that of taking it into the stomach, rendering it particular
