CONSUMPTION,
And ai l jiseases of the hinds
aid THTOAT mo positively curable by
inhalation, which convoys the remedies to
the cavities in the lungs through the uir pas
sages, unil coming in direct contnet with die
disease, neutralizes the tubercular matter,
allays tne rough, causes a freo and easy ex
ppclo'olion, heals the lungs, purifies the blood,
imparls renewed vitality to tfio nervous sys
tem, giving that tone and energy so indis
pensable tor the restorative of health. To be
able to stole confidently that Consumption is
curable by' inhalation, is to tne a source of
unalloyed pleasure, it is as much under the
control ol medical treatment us any other
formidable disease; ninety out of every hun
dred eases can be cored in the first stages,
am! tidy per cent, in the second; but in the
third stage it is impossible to save more than
live per cent., for the luvigs are so cut lip by
th'e disease as to bid defiance to medical
skill. Even, however, in the lost stages, in
halation affords extraordinary reliol to the
suffering oilendir.gtltia fearful scourge, which
annually destroys ninety five thousand per
sons in the United States alone; and a correct
calculation shows that out of the present |>op
ul.uion of the earth, eighty millions are de
t tined to fill the consumptive's grave.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so
fatal as Consumption. In all ages it lias been
the gieat enemy of life, for it spares neither
age nor sex. tun sweeps ofTalike the brave,
the beaunlul, the graceful, and the gifted.—
Ity the help of that Supreme Beiftjr, from
whom cometh every good and perleet gill, I
am enabled to oiler to tho Billeted a perma
nent ar.d speedy cure in Consumption. Tho
I first cause of tubercles is from impure
, blood, and the immediate etlect, produced
! by tbeir disposition in the lungs, is to prevent
the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through
the entire system. Then surely it is more
rational to expect greater good from ir.edij
oincs entering the cavities of tho lungs than
trom those administered through the stom
j ach; the patient will always find the lungs
| free and the breathing easy after inhaling
i remedies. True, inhalation is a local
1 remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally,
j and with more power and certainty than rem
edies administered by the stomach. To prove
; the pnwettnl and direct influence ol this
. mode of administration, chloroform inhaled
I will entirely destroy sonsibility in a few mm
' ii'os, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so
4 that a limb may be amputated without the
; slightest pain ; inhaling the ordinary burning
1 gas will destroy life in a lew hours,
j The inhalation of ammonia will ronse the
' system when fainting or apparently dead.—
J The odor of many oi the medicines is per
eepiiblo in the skill a few minutes after being
I inhaled, and may be immediately detected
lin the Mood. A convincing proof of lite
' constitutional efloets of inhalation, is the fact
j that sickness is always produced by breath
j ing foul air. Is not this positive evidence
■ that proper remedies, carefully prepared and
judiciously administered •fitough the longs,
' should produce the most happy results? Du
i ring eighteen years' practice, many thous
| and#, suffering from diseases of the lungs
! and throat, hsve been under my care, and I
t have a fleeted many remarkable cores, even j
j alter the sufferers had been pronounced in j
I the last stages, which folly satisfies me that
! consumption is no longer a latal disease.—
i My treatment of consumption is original, and
I founded on long experience and a thorough
j investigation. My perleet acquaintance with
tt.e nature of lube'reies, Ate., enables me to
| distinguish readily the various forms of dis
I cae ihM simulate consumption, and apply
j the proper remedies rarely being mistaken
| even in a single case. This familiarity in
j connection with certain pathological and mi
-1 cioscopic discoveries, enables me to relieve
■ the lungs from the eifeets of contracted chests;
I to enlarge the chest, purify the blood, impart
i to it renewed vitality, giving energy and tone
j io the entire system.

THE ACKNOWLEDGED
THE recent trials at Read
ing have endorsed the cur
rent of public opinion, and
confirmed the verdict of more than 200 arci
dental Arcs, proving oonolusiraly that "liar*
ring's" is (fee only safe that will not burn.
Extract from the Committee's Report on
the Trial of Iron Safes at Reading:
"On the 26th of February all the members
of the Committee met to witness the Safes
and books and papers, (placed in them) and
were perfectly satisfied that all was right.—
Tho day following, the burning took place,
under the superintendence of the Comm itiee.
After a fair und impartial burning for five
hours, the Safe of Messrs. Evans &i Watson
was first opened, the Sefn being on tire in
side, and the contents partially consumed,
while the contents in the Sale of Messrs.
Parrels & Herring were in good condition,
and no fire inside."
