Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods.
AFTER many years' close investigation and
numerous experiments, the Patentee takes
pleasure In informing the public that he has urn--
red at the true principles of protecting families,
dwellings and property from the destructive in
fluence of Lightning. Iho calamities that
every City, Town, Village and Country falls vic
tim to annually, through the gross negligence of
its inhabitants, is beyond calculation, especially
when the remedy is so easy to obtain—this is
found in Arinitage's Patent Magnetic
Lightning Rode, and in this alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors M'Murtrie,
Johnson, Wanor and many others that have ex
amined them, recommend and speak of them in
the highest terms of approbation, and here pro
nounced them the only safe rods in use in this or
any other country, for the protection of Lives and
Property. One advantage is to divide and throw
back a part of the electric fluid harmless to the
clouds; in time of a stroke this enables the rod
to conduct that portion of fluid that belongs to
the earth without the slightest danger of leaving
the conductor. This rod has many other advan
tages over the old one. The only place of man
ufacturing is in

FEVER AND AGUE CURE,
For the prevention and Cure of Intermittent
and Remittent Fevers, Fever and Ague, Chills
and Fever, Dumb Ague, General Debility Night
Sweats, and all other forms of disease which have
a common origin in Malaria or Miasma.
This is a natural antidote which will entirely
protect any resident or traveller even in the
most sickly or swampy localities, from any Ague
or Bilious disease whatever, or any injury from
constantly inhaling Malaria or Miasma.
It will instantly check the Ague in persons
who have suffered for any length of time, from
one day to twenty years, so that they need never
to have another chill, by continuing in use ne.
cording to directions. The patient at once begins
to recover appetite and strength, and continues
until a permane and radical cure is effected.
One or two bottles' will answer for ordinary
cases ; some may requip more. Directions prin
ted German, Francis and Spanish, accompany
each bottle. Price one dollar. Liberal dis
counts made to the trade.

EVIDENCE OF SAFETY.
New York, June 11, 1855.
"I have made a chemical examination of
"Rhode's Fever and Ague Cure," or Antidote,
to Malaria, and have tested it for Krsenic, Mer
cury, Quinine, and Strychnine, but have not
found a particle of either in it, nor have I found
any substance in its composition that would
prove injurious to the constitution.

EVIDENCE OF MERIT.
Lewisburg, Union Co., Pa., May 2, 1855.
Mr. J. A. Rhodes—Dear Sir ; The box of
medicine you sent me was duly received on the
11th of April. I have sold about one half of it,
and so far the people who have used it, and six
of the cases were of long standing ; my sister.
who had it for five or six years back, and could
never get it stopped, except by Quinine, and
that only as long as she would take, is now, I
think, entirely cured by your remedy.
C. R. McCINGLY."
CAUTION TO AGUE SUFFERERS.
Take no more Arsenic, Tonics, Mercury, Qui
nine, Febrifuges, Strychnino, or Anti-Periodice,
of any kind. The well-known inefficiency of
these noxious poisons proves them to be the off
spring of false medical principles, or of mercena
ry quacks. The only remedy in existence that
is both sure and harmless is

He has tried it in over 1100 cedes, and never
failed except in two cases, (both tI under humor.)

Two to three bottles nre warranted to cora the

Two to three bottles nre warranted to cure the
most desperate case of rheumatism.
Three to four bottles are warranted to cure the
Five to eight bottles will cure the worst case
A benefit is always experienced from the first
bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the
above quantity is taken.
Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles of
this in the vicinity of Boston. I knew the effect
of it in every case. So sure as water will extin
guish fire, so sure will this cure humor. I Hover
sold a bottle of it but that sold another; after a
trial it always speaks for itself. There aro two
things about this herb that appear to me surpri
sing ; first that it grows in our pastures, in some
places quite plentiful, and yet its value has never
been known until I discovered it in 1046—second
that it should cure all kinds of humor.
In order to give some idea of the sadden rise
and groat popularity of the discovery. I will
state that in April, 1853, I peddled it nod sold
about six bottles per day—in April, 1834, I sold
over ono thousand per day (wit.
Some of the wholesale Druggists who have
been in business twenty and thirty years, say
that nothing in the annals of patent medicines
was ever like it. There is a universal praise of
it from all quarters.
In my own practice I always kept it strictly for
humors—but since its introduction 118 a general
family medicMe, great and wonderful virtues
have been found in it that I never suspected.
Several cases of epileptic fits—a disease which
was always considered incurable, hove been cu
red by a few bottles. 0, what a mercy if it will
prove effectual in all cases of that dreadful mal
ady—there are but few who have more of it than
1 know of several cases of Dropsy, ell of whom
aged people cured by it. For the various disea
ses of the Liver, Si-k Ileadache, Dyspepsia,
Asthma, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side, Dis
eases of the Spine, and particularly in diseases
of the Kidneys, &c., the discovery has done more
good than any medicine ever known.
No change of diet ever necessary—eat the best
you ran get and enough of it.
