Hollidaysburg, Feb. 15, 1854.
TO ifiIFRID-31:LiNL,
The atTention of the I:Iodic:0 PrQiession in Pt.
is respectfully invited to the follownig important
facts :
„ I. Toto 1001 than two thirds oldie American
women are afflicted with Prolapses Uteri, and its
associated complaints; the result of natural deli
cacy of organization; defective physical education;
early marriages; the various accidents of preg
nancy, and Labour, and general neglect of hygi
enic measures,
'2. That as Prolapses Uteri is a displacement,
or "filling" of this organ, it necessarily involves
is like descent. or dragging of the Heart, Lungs,
Stomach, and Bowels, and that ono fundamental
condition of cure in all these ensue, is, the appli
cation of such n Physiological brace, or supporter,
as will most effectively brace the weak bock nod
withont compression, assist the relaxed and over
taxed muscles in performing their not office
of lifting, and holding in their place, the dragging
viscera of the Chest and Abdomen from the de
pressed Uterus. The observation of every Phy
sician, nod the extensive and increasing use of
abdominal supporters, (so called) furnishes con
clusive proof of this,
3. That the Supporters now in use never have
received the approval of the Profession, because,
they all, in common, act as hnothse and cavilling
clamps. compresses, :Ind ',la ring poultices, creating
a necessity for their perpetual use by restraining
the freedom and exercise of the muscles, which
they should only assist, and, nlso, aggravating
the "falling" mid dragging, by their crowding and
compressing, rather, than their bracing and dent
' tiny tendency.
4. In view of the above facts, which every Phy
sician has been compelled to feel but too keenly,
is it not the duty, as well ns the interest of the
Profession, to seek for an instrument which nets
upon established principles of pathology, and
which is at once effective, and necessary to the
success of the practitioner, and professional in its
origin and design 1
The undersigned, therefore, (Wing in accord
once with the true interests of the Profession, nod
I niter much investigation and outlay, now offers
to them an instrument which tally meets all the
above indications. The Brace invented by 1)1..
Banning of N. l'., lies alone received the appro
bation of the Alumni of the Profession, or taken
rank ns a permanent contribution to Medical
' Memo. While it sufforts the weak back and
lifts up the abdominal viscera, the undersigned,
by combining it wills a recent invention, hiss odd
est greatly to its efficiency in erecting the hod!, and
expanding Ihe chest, and these instruments sire be
lieved to fulfill creep indication that am lie deri
ved from mechanical support, while acting in
complete harmony with the forces of stature.

Hydro-Electric 'Voltaic Chains,
A RE fin. the first time introduced to the people
Ili of Huntingdon and Yummy, as the most con
craient, eylertual, and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relieving null permanently curing all'
Now we know that no announcement similar to
the above meets the eye of the renderalmost
and perhaps this may be classed with litany
others. lint listen or you do as ininstice. It is
claimed tint l'ulvertnacher'a Electric Chain, is
the only magnetic remedical agent that is secured
by patent, granted by this government, on the
ground that it was n strictly useful and scientifie
article. The Chains are now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention
front the thousands Minden,. visit it.
'l'llo manner of using the chains is very simple.
The chain is first moithincil with cent/son vinegar,
and then one end of the chain in applied to the
Part where the 'obit' in located, nod the other end
emesite to the first. Tho ends of the chain should
never touch ouch other. At the moment of ap
plication, Olio most unite pain is instantly relieved,
wherever it is located, by the passing through the
port a constant current of uninterrupted alectro
magnetism. In the following diseases, tin other
remedy has ever given such complete and perfect
satisfaction to the patient as Pulvermacher's
Chains: Rheumatism, Painful and swelled Joints,
Pains in the Back, Deafness, Blindness Paraly
sis, Neuralgia in the Face, Long standing Ner
vous Headache, Palpitation of the heart, (tenor
s! Dyspepsin,Female Disensen, Asthma,
Contracted Joints, Sc.
will he given to any person who will produce so
many well authenticated certificates of mare from
intelligent patients nod scientific physicians, of
time above diseases, as has been performed by t►te
use of the Electric Chain during the past year.
It is truly the feet that wherever the electric
Auxins have been introduced, bottled nostrums and
2ommon lard have greatly diminished in solo,
iticitilo having become disgusted with the practice
of using their stomachs for drag shops.
The Electric Chains are highly recommehded
by Professors Mott, Van Buren, Post and Carno
rhan, of Now York; are also in daily use in every
Hospital' in that city. The chains will last for
years, are always ready for use, nod produce no
injurious :rod., when used as irected.
The introduction of the Electric Chain into this
country is the dawn of a new era in medicine.—
During the last twenty years, it can safely he es
timated that tea thott.qoad females hare died year
ly front this one disease,
It i: well known to medical men that this com
mon disease is beyond the reach of medicine, and
that in proportion to the amount of medicine giv
en, the more the patient is doomed to suffer, and
sooner will death close the scene.
During the last 2 years note than ono thousand
enses of Prolarmq rt,ri (falling of the womb)
have been pernutnentill cured in England and
France. Alost of those cases were ladies of high
stnntling, who bad previously tried all otherkintls
of treatment with no benefit. Among the distin
guished lathes that have been cured in Paris is the
present Queen of France. In this country, du
ring the last year, oar hoondad eases have been
cored in the city of New York, many who have
allowed their:limes to be published for the bene
fit of those suffering with similar cotnplaints.—
The mode of use is simply to apply ono end of a
:30 link chain to the spine just above the hips, and
the other end upon the abdomen, and allow the
chain to remain for one hoar. This tube repent
ed for a • times during the twenty-four hours.
The Electric Chains never fail to relieve the
seri, poiiis and swelling incident to this disease.
The Worst forms of thistlisease itendily yield to a
few applications of n chain, and in no single in
stance have they litiled to give instant relief, if
they did not effect a permanent cure. All persons
who nee victims of this ttsmd winter complaint,
nee kindly invited to call and obtain a pionplilet
of HORACE W;smfrui..\gcnt for Hun
tingdon county, who will also explain their mode
of use,
The eTeet is chains can be sent by mail to any
part 01 the United Ftates, by addressing (post
paid) n:iy of the agents in the priceipal cities, or
