And all Diseases of the Lungs and Throat,
CURABLE BY INHALATION.
Which conveys the remedies to the cavities in
the lungs through the air passages, and canting
in direct contact with the disease, neutralizes
the tubercular matter, allays the cough, causes
a free and easy expectoration, heals the lungs,
purifies the blood, imparts renewed vitality to the
nervous system, giving that tone and energy so
indispensable tor the restoration of health. To
be able to state confidently that Consumption is
curable by inhalation. is to me a source of
]oted pleasure. It is as mach under the con
teal of medical treatment an any other formid
able disease ; ninety out of every hundred ca
ses eats be cured in the first stages, and lilty per
cent. in the second ; but in the third stage it is
impossible to save more than five per cent.. lot
the Longs are so cut up by the disease as to hid
defiance to medical skill. Even, however, in the
last stages, Inhalation affords extraordinary re
lief to the suffering attending this fearful scourge
which annually destroys ninety-five thousand
persons in the United States alone ; and a cor
rect calculation shows that of the present popu
lation of the earth, eighty millions are destined
to lilt the Consumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so is
tel as Consumption. In all ages it has been the
groat enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor
sex, but sweeps odalike the brave, the beauti
ful, the graceful nod the gifted. By the help of
that Supreme lining front whtm e meth every
good and perfect gilt, I am enabled to offer to
the afflicted a per annum and speedy care in
Consumption. The first cause or tubercles is
fnmi nnpure blood, and the immediate effect pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre
vent the free (Winks'oe of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
entire system. Then surely it is more rational
to expert greater good from medicines en wring
the cavities of the lungs than those edminisit•red
through the stonnielt ; the patient trill always
B. the lungs free and the breathing easy, after
labeling remedies. 'rhus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it arts constitutionally end
with more power and certainty than remedies
administered by the stomach. To prove the pow
eilui and direct influence of this mode oradmin
istration, chloroform inhaled will entirely de
stroy sensibility in a few minutes, pantlyr.ing
the entire nervous system, so that a limb mots be
amputated without the slightest pain; inhaling
the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a

tem when tainting or eppartmlly death Thti
der of many of the medicines is perceptible in
the skin a teat minutes rater being 11111111011, and
may be immediately detected iu the blood. A
eunrincing proof or the voostitotioiod effects of
inhalation, is the tact that sickness is !OWN, pro•
muted by breathing timil air—is not this positive
evidence that pioper remedies, carefully prepar
ed and judiciously administered thro' the lungs
should produce the happiest results'? During
eighteen yeare practice, MOM thousands seller

been under my care, and 1 nave effected many
remarkable mutes, even alter the mtherers had
been pronounced in the last stages, which bully
satisfies ma that consumption is nu longer a fa
tal disease. Sly treatment or consumption is
original, and founded on long methyle and a
thorough investigation. My.perrect itetputintnnee
with the nature of tubercles. Or., enables me to
distinguish, readily, the various limns of disease
that simulate consumption, and app4 the proper
remedies, rarely being mistaken oven in a single
case. This familiarity, in connection with cer
tain pathological and microscopic discoveries en
ables me to relieve the lungs fna the ettects . of
euntrected chests, to enlarge the chest, purify
the blued, impart to it renewed vitality, giving
energy and tone to the entire system.

'Twos inn li•-I , I—by ott old (HI i7ebool,
Where the boys were romping wild,
I noted one with a shining face,
And be was but n child ;
And as he romped upon the green,
With mind and muscle strong,
Anon he'd cry to the lagging boys—
" Why don'tiyou come along?" •
So said the boy, but when he spoke,
The man was in that boy ;
And now his voice round Christendom,
Rings like s. bell of joy;
For the world has taken up his cry,
And joined him in a song,
Now sung by nations in their march,
"Why don't you come along ?"
Come on 1 pause not 'tis death to stop,
The tide is at its flood ;
For men and things are on their march—
Halt never, if you would.
That cry is in the hearts of men,
Their watch word right or wrong
And nations cry in every tongue—
" Why don't you come along ?"

Proclaimed a to the man—
The man takes up the cheering cry,
Which with the hay beg..
O'er wood and plain—o'er sea and earth,
It rings :n startling song ;
'Tis written on the firmament,

But yesterday, it took six men
To make a pin ; but now
That little boy will do the work ;
When done he'll scarce know how.
Thought follows action—then we pause
To think ; go longer strong ;
But still keep up the schoolboy's

But yesterday the reaper's hook
Moved slowly through the erain ;

And us he cuts, and cleans, and bags,
