It was found impossible, however, to
obtain a clear title to the lease of the prop

added to the high price demanded for the
furniture of said house, and the uselessness
of much of - it for the proposed HoMe. when
received in connection with the amount of
taxes on so large a house, induced the
ladies to choose another location. -

it by donations. No suitable place could

lm Laughing Gas Dangerous!
Some parties, either from ignorance or ,
froth interested motives, have seen tit to as-
sert that laughing gas is dangerous; A
very slight acquaintance with the nature of i
the article, a very little scientific knowl
edge, will show how utterly absurd the
statement is. They might with more accu
racy charge that the atmosphere webresthe
every day was dangerous, for it is composed
of precisely the same constituents (nitro
gen and oxygen) as is laughing gas; the
difference being that the proportion of the
component noon which we depend for 'ex
istence, oxygen, is greater In the laughing
gas than in the atmospheric air. Atmos
pheric air consists of four-fifths nitrogen,
which, will not sustain life, and one-fifth
oxygen, without which we could, not live.
Every one acquainted with chemistry
knows this is correct, and no one claiming
scientific knowledge will dare deny it. It
'doom not require a medical diploma to ena
ble one, with these' filets before him, to
judge if laughing gas, oomposed of the same
components as the atmosphere, and having
the vital principal in more "than twice the
proportion the atmosphere has, is danger
gerotui. So far, from it, it exerts a decidedly
beneficial influence upon the system which
is felt In the exhilerating effects which fol
' low its use, . and •is only paralleled - bYthe
buoyancy spirits ono enjoys in a high
state of hen th.
For five y rs past Dr. G. W. Spencer has
been administering Laughing Gas to per
sons afflicted 'with tooth-ache, but dread
ing the pain of having the teeth drawn,
and he has yet to meet with the individual'
who was not satisfied with the result.
. Therefore, if you need , a tooth extracted,
go to Dr. Spencer's Dental _Establishment,
No. 251 Farm street, the largest and best
fitted In the city, and take the Laughing
Gas, and have nuTear for the 'result. - The
Doctor, besides -being a good dentist, is a
thorough gentleman. Yen will, •under his
hands, find tooth drawing something no be dreaded..

Deainess—A Man 'Nearly Eighty Years
Old Cured.
The following notice of a cure of deafness
I was pnblished during list summer, and
since then the gentleman him continued on
tirelly well, having called on Dr. Keyser
d uring tho present week. It ought to be a
i source of gratification to those of our read
ers who for a long time have suffered with
1 chronic maladies, 'that there - should be
some one whose skill and ability could be
depended on. _ -
There are hundreds of cases of deafnes.s
and partial deafness, most of which would
be greatly relieved, and many of them en
tirely-cured by appropriate remedies. The
ease, immediately under our notice is that
of Mr. Jacob Boobyer, of Green Tree, Alle
'gheny county,' who for a great many years
has been afflicted with partial deafness, so
that he,
could not hear the ticking of a
watch. The deafness was complete m-one
car,in the other, only partial, with a con
,tinual noise like that made by the escaping
of steam. Mr. Boobyer placed himself
under Dr. Keyser's treatment late in July,
and now he is well, and has been so for a
month past. The cure seems to be thor
ough, and what seems to be the more re
markable, is the extreme age of the patient,
he being in his seventy-ninth year. Mr.
Boobyer is a well known and respectable
citizen, and had a son in this city. Dr. Key
