A Cure Warranted in Two Days
No Meroury or Nauseous Drugs
Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, London, Grad
uate from oue of the most eminent Colleges in the United
and the greater part of whose life has been spent
in the hospitals of London, Paris, Philadelphia and else
where, has effected some of the most astonishing cures
that were ever known ; many troubled with ringing in
the head and ears when asleep, great nervousness, being
alarmed at sudden sounds, bashfulness, with frequent
blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind
were cured Immeqtately.
Take Particular Notice
Dr. J. addresses ail those who have injured themselves
by improper indulge ace and solitary habits, which ruin
both body and mind, unfitting thein for either business,
study, society or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholly effects pro -
duesd by early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of the
Back and Limbs, Pains in the Head; Dimness of Sight,
Loss of Muscular. Power, Palpitation of the heart,. Dye.
pepsy, Nervous irratibil ty, Derangement of awl:4081Iva
Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption,
Nisrrreuv.—The fearful effects on the mind are much
to be dreaded—Lose of Memory, Confusion of Ideas , De
pression of Spirits, Evil Forbodings, Avers on to Society,
Self Distrust, love of Solitude, Timidity, &C., are some of
the evils produced.
THOUSANDS of persons of all ages can now judge what
is the cause of their declining health, losing their, vigor,
becoming weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having a
singular appearance auout the eyes, cough and symptoms
Who have injured themselves by a certain practice in
dulged In when alone, a habit frequently learned from
evil companions, or at school, the erects of which are
nightly felt, even whenasloep, &lid if not cured renders
marriage imoonible, and destroys both mind and body,
should apply Immediately. "
Whet a pity that a young man, the hope of his coun
try, the darling of his parents, should be snatched from
all prospects end enjoyments of life, by the consequence
of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a
certain secret habit. Such persona RI7EIT, before contem
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most neces
sary requisites to promote connubial happiness. Indeed,
Without these, the journey through Ilfu becomes a weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly Oedema to the view ;
the mind becomes shadowed with despair and filled with
the ruelancholly refl alma that the happiness of another
heroines blighted with our own.
Disease of Imprudence.
When the misguided and Imprudent votary of pleasure
ends that he bas imbibe - i the seeds of this painful dis
ease, it too often hapens that an tll-timed sense of shame
or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those
who, from euic.tion and respectability, can alone be

this hour d disease make their appearance, such as al
mated sore throat, diseased nose, nocturnal pains In
the head aLd limbs, dimness of sight, dealnesa, nodes on
the shin bones and arms, blotches on the Is ad, face and
extremities, progress ng with frightful rapidity, till at
last the palate or the mouth or the bones of the aO3O fall

objrci of commiseration, till death puts a period to his
dreadfu I sufferings, by sending h m to " that Undiscov

It is a means/Jody fact that thousands fall victims to
