Hydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for the first time introduced to the people
of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the most con
venient, "banal, and strictly scientific :node of
instantly relievinu end permanently curing an
Now we know that an announcement similar to
the above meets the eye of the reader almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may be classed with many
others. But listen or yon do us injustice. It is
claimed that I'ulvermacher's Electric Chain, is
the only magnetic remedical agent that is secured
by patent, granted by this government, on the
ground that it was a strictly useful and scientific
article. The Chains are now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention
from the thousands who daily visit it.
MODE Oh s USE.
The manner of using the chains is very simple.
The chain is first Inoirtened with comma,' vinegar,
and then ono end of the chain is applied to the
part where the pain is located, and the other end
opposite to the first. The emit of the chain should
never touch each other. At the moment of ap
plication, the most acute pain is inatandll relieved,
wherever it is located, by the passing through the
part a constant current of uninterrupted gleam
magnetism. In the following diseases, no 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 Ilendaehe, Palpitation of the Heart, Gener
al Debility, Dyspepsia, Female Diseases, Asthma,
Contracted Joints, Ste.
will he given to any person who wilt produce so
many well authenticated certificates of cure from
intelligent patients and scientific physicians, of
the above diseases, as has been performed by the
use of the Electric Chain during the past year.
It is truly the fact that wherever the electric
chains have been introduced, bottled nostrums and
common lard have greatly diminished in sale,
people having become disgusted with the practice
of using their stomachs for drug shops.
The Electric Chains are highly recommended
by Professors Mott, Van Buren, Post and Carno
(Man, of New York; are also in daily use in every
Hospital in that city. The chains will last for
years, are always ready fur use, and produce no
injurious results, when used no directed.
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-
thnateti that ten thouscinil realities have died year
ly from this one disease,
It is well known to medical men that this com
mon disease is beyond the reach of medicine, awl
that in proportion to the amount of medicine gin-
the n?re the patient is doomed to sutteCand
sooner will death'elose the scone.
During the last 2 years more than one thousand
cases of Prolapses Uteri (falling of the womb)
have been permanently cured in England and
France. Most of those cases were Indies of high
standing, who had previously tried nil otherkinds
of treatment with no benefit. Among the distin
guished ladies that have been cured in Paris is the
present Queen of France. In this country, du
ring the last year, one hundred cases have been
cured in the city of New York, many who have
allowed their names to be published for the bene
fit of those suffering with similar complaints.—
The mode of use is simply to apply one 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 ono hour. This to be repeat
ed four times during the twenty-four hours.
The Electric Chains never fail to relieve the
severe pains and swelling incident to this disease.
The worst forms of this disease readily yield to a
few applications of a chain, and in no single in
stance have they failed to give instant relief, if
they did not effect u permanent cure. All persons
who are victims of this usual winter complaint,
are kindly invited to call and obtain a pamphlet
of HORACE W. SMfITII. Agent for Hun
tingdon county, who will also explain their mode
The electric chains can be sent by mail to any
part of the United States, by addressing (post
paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or

class of diseases of which it treats. Avoiding all
technical terms, it addresses itself to the readers;
it is free from all objectionable matter. and no
parent, however fastidious, can object to placing
it in the hands of his sons. The author has devo
ted many yenrs to the treatment of the various
complaints treated of, and 'with too little breath

has offered to the world at the merely nominal

A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, in writing
of "Hunter's Medical Manual," says:—
"Thousands upon thousands of our youth, by evil
example .d the influence of the passions, have
been led into the habit of self-pollution without
realizing the sin and consequence upon them
selves and their posterity. The constitution of
thousands, who are raising families have been
enfeebled. if not broken down, and they do not
know the cause or the cure. Any thing that
can be done so to enlighten and influence the
public mind as to check, and ultimately to re
move this wide-spread source of human wretch
edness, would confer the greatest blessing next
to the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present and
coming.generution. Intemperance, (or the use
of intoxicating drinks,) though it has slain thou
sands upon thousands, is not a greater scourge to
the hutnan race. Accept my thanks on behalf
of the afflicted, and, believe me, your co-worker
in the good work you are so actively engaged in."
