Sabbath Morning Music.
BY WILLIAM E. 31',LABBIL
Fair suns arise to light the world,
And move majestic on their way ;
But most majestic and most fair,
The great bright aun of Sabbath-Day
Its waves of blessed light flow down,
As ocean-ripples gently roll ;
And while I bathe my toil-pale brow,
Sweet-voiced words come to my soul :
•r Barth-pilgrim, cease thy weary march—
Cast off thy burden—pitch thy tent—
And woo the pleasant angel, REST,
Beneath the shining element."
Rest! what a silver-sounding word!
Rest! what a blessedness and balm!
It is the lull amid life's storms,
A foretaste of the eternal calm.'
Then calm, my soul, be all thy moods,
And peaceful thy communings be,-
As is the sea when no gales blow—
As is the sea, the green-girt sea.
Ilow music fills the Sabbath morn
With psalmody of peace and rest,
Till earth's loud hymns almost resound
Like Alleluias of the blest!
The blue-bird swings on cedar bough,
The lark soars'in the sky above,
The oriole revels 'mid the blooms,.
And all pipe morning lays of love.
.Down to the shady depths of glens,
From rocky sources on the hills,
They musically leap and flow—
They leap and flow, the tinkling rills
From yonder chapel, whose loud bell
Has tulled the hour of praise and prayer,
I hear the sonorous organ's swell,
And grand Old Hundred's solemn air.
Betimes I catch a word or line,
Borne on the plumy wind's soft wing;
if This is the day that CHRIST arose
So early from the dead I" they sing.
0, blessed be the voice that sings,
And blessed the ministering breeze,
That bears to my enchanted soul
Such blessed words as these 1
And, hark ! methinks from yonder sky
I hear the song that seraphs sing ;
Perhaps 't is only their sweet speech,
Or, just the rustling of s wing.
Fling wide your gates, 0, angel-clime,
That from this far-off sphere of dust
I may discern-0, sounds sublime !
Familiar voices 'mid the Just.
'T is like the music that we hear
When wings on golden harp-strings blow,
That voice I know : it sings in lands
That men know'not, but hope to know.
0, loved and lost ! such music made
The angels, watching, one sad day,
The gentle going of thy soul
Upward unto the far-away.
Then, since the companies of birds
Trill gentle melodies of praise,
And brooks and forests make sweet song,
And men, loud Sabbath morning lays;
And since I seem to hear the strain
Of cherubim and seraphim,
Let me my trembling voice uplift,
And join the UNIVERSAL HYMN!

This is just such a book as we like to get hold
of. It tells us, in a plain and easy manner, of
the beginnings of great things. The early settle
ment of Western Pennsylvania, gave character
to a large part of the Western States. The first
literature of this region, gave form and spirit to
the literature and religion of a whole stretch of
country, reaching from State to Territory, till
now it is blessing the remotest West of our con
tinent. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, lowa, and now
Kansas, Nebraska, and Oregon, have enjoyed,
and are enjoying the benefit. Had our fathers
here been ignorant, and.been indifferent to educa
tion, the whole West would have suffered a
blight. Had they been careless about religion,
or heterodox in their sentiments, Christianity
would have been deprived of a great heritage,
and untold millions of immortals would have
eternally felt the loss. The Log-Cabin Schools of
McMillan, Smith, and Dod ; and the Canonsburg
Academy, commencing its classical existence in
the shadow of a few sassafras bushes growing in
a worm fence, with its fervent prayers, and its
Quid agial and its two pupils; and the little
Stone College with its President and one Profes
sor, and a joint salary of less than $7OO, have
done more for true learning, and a pure religion,
and Republican institutions, than we are able to
estimate. The names of the actors should be
had in lasting remembrance, and a knowledge of
the incidents of the times should be perpetuated
from age to age. The minuteness of the detains
one of the excellences of the book we peruse.
The Log-Cabin Schools began in 1779 ; the
Canonsburg Academy was opened in 1791; and
Jefferson College obtained its charter in 1802.
The College was the first in time West of the Al
legheny mountains, and it has ever maintained a
precedence in the number of its students and its
usefulness. It has always been poor in funds,
almost straggling for existence; and yet always
rich in faith, and flourishing in the qualifications
of its teachers, and the character of the minds it
is annually sending out to bless the Church and

A very suggestive volume, proving its author

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate.
It is pleasant during the hot months of
Summer, to escape from the bustle of
crowded streets, and the confined atmos
phere of the city, to some sequestered val
ley where one can repair the exhausted en
ergies of body and mind, and spend a sea
son in harmless recreation. The beautiful
village of Bedford, and the valley in which
it is situated, furnish a favorable resort.
For a long series of years the care-worn
merchant, the man of study, and the in
valid, whether from city or country, have
sought a temporary residence in this health
ful region ; and after a few weeks, or
months, have returned to their respective
spheres of labor, invigorated both physi
cally and mentally. We shall write, briefly,
respecting the village of Bedford, and the
Springs in the immediate vicinity.
In the opinion - of the writer, there are
few places in our country so delightfully
situated, and at the same time so favored as
respects salubrity of climate. The moun
tains which surround it, the valleys di
verging in almost every direction, the lim
pid streams and grateful woodlands, are
almost unsurpassed in majesty and loveli
ness. A gentleman who has traveled ex
tensively in this country and in Europe, re
marked, a few days after his arrival in Bed
ford, that with the exception of some &wigs
scenery, he had never witnessed any thing
which surpassed in picturesque, romantic
beauty, that which he now beheld. The
society of Bedford, we think, will compare
favorably with that of any place which we
have visited in point of intelligence, refine
ment, and morality. There are here six
churches—one for every three hundred in
habitants—the Presbyterian, German Re
formed, Lutheran, Methodist, Catholic, and
African. There are two Seminaries. The
one under the care of Rev. Mr. Aughinbaugh,
recently from Eminittsbure, Md., •is in a
flourishing condition; and if scholarly at
tainments, experience in teaching, and cour
teousness of manner insure success, the
Principal and Assistants of this institute for
young,ladies and gentlemen cannot fail to
make permanent and highly useful this
already prosperous school.
,are situated about one mile and a
half from Bedford, in what is called
" Shover's Valley." The property within
the past year has passed into the hands of
a company, who seem determined, that
since nature has done so much for this im
portant watering-place, art shall be em
ployed, not to destroy, as is often the ease,
but to add to the beauty and comfort of the
place. The grounds have already been
greatly improved and ornamented. Annd
ditional hotel-building, remarkably tasteful,
and amply furnished, is just ready for cm
cupancy. A large number of the rooms in
the buildings previously occupied, including
the spacious parlors, have been refitted in a
manner which will contribute greatly to the
comfort of visitors. One large bath-house
is just completed, another is being erected.
The gentleman who has charge of the
hotels, and the President of the Company,
who has a general supervision, are, well
suited to the positions they occupy—kind,
affable, and attentive to strangers. His
friends, and those who have been accus
tomed to visit the Springs, will be gratified
to learn that the original proprietor still re
tains a large interest in the property; and
should they see fit to • revisit the scenes of
by-gone, happy days, they will receive from
him a hearty welcome.
The water of the principal Spring is
chalybeate and saline. It has a taste re
sembling a weak solution of Epsom salts,
at first unpleasant to most persons, but after
having been used a few days, is generally
preferred to any other water. It was ana
lyzed several years since, by Dr. Church, of
Pittsburgh; the result is as follows :
A wine, gallon contains, of carbonic acid,
74 cubic inches; of solid contents :
Sulphate of Magnesia, 80 grs.
Sulphate of Lime, 14.5
Chloride of Sodium, 10
Muriate of Lime, 3
Carbonate of Iron, 5
Carbonate of Lime, 8
As to the medicinal properties of the
Spring, physicians tell us that it is tonic,
aperient, alterative, diaphoretic, and, to
some extent, antacid. A physician who
published an able paper on the Bedford
mineral water, its qualities, effects, and
mode of administration, states that the
diseases to the alleviation or cure of which
this water is adapted are of course chronic,
and he makes the following classification:—
Functional derangements, and some organic
diseases, of the liver, stomach, and bowels;
certain nervous disorders, depending upon
general debility; some diseases peculiar to
women ; affections of the skin, having their
origin in a disordered or impaired condition
of the digestive organs, &c. In one form
of Dyspepsia, which consists in a sub-acute
inflammation of the mucous membrane of
the stomach, the water is, perhaps, of no
advantage. It should not be used by per
sons who are suffering from Consumption in
its advanced stages; to such it generally
proves fatal. Many have come to these
Springs under the influence of that most
deceitful of all diseases, hoping to derive
benefit from the water, and persisting in its
use notwithstanding its effects were evidently
unfavorable, until at length they have been
compelled to hasten to their homes, there
to die, or have been consigned by strangers'
hands to their final rest. With the above
exceptions, and perhaps some others, these
waters, when used in connexion with proper
diet and judicious exercise, are highly bene
ficial. An eminent clergyman, now at the
Springs, who has visited k Saratoga, the Hot
Springs of Virginia, and nearly all the
prominent watering places in the Union, in
formed me that Bedford mineral water was,
in his opinion, more highly beneficial, more
permanent in its effects than' any other
with which he had any acquaintance.
MEANS OE ACCESS
The first time the writer came to this
place, it was under circumstances which
forcibly reminded him of the difficulty
which pleasure•seekers and invalids of 'Lon•
don experienced in reaching their famous
watering-places in the seventeenth century.
Then a journey of thirty miles a day was
worthy of special remark r and, they traveled
in coaches drawn by six horses—for with
four they were certain to stick fast in •the
mire. But, as with them, so with us in
these ends •of the earth, a better state ,of,
things is come, though much still remains

Things Seen in a Recent,Ramble.
After a light breakfast at the . St. Charles,
and a morning ramble in the city; I .pur
posely directed my steps to the " sanctum"
of the Banner and Advocate, where I
found the editor on his tripod, busily jotting
down important cogitations, as ~ "c opy."
He received me with a-cordiality that I felt
at once to be unfeigned, and gave me to
know that at least one editor can look upon
the intrusive call of , a rambler, without
Scarcely had the usual salutations and in
quiries of such occasions ended, when in
walked a worthy son of Levi and for a.
time prevented me from making known the
object of my, apparently,ill-timed visit.
This brother was on his way to, the Assem
bly, and has a field of labor East of the
mountains—was an old acquaintance of the
Doctor, arid received by him with marked
tokens of Christian regard. Soon after he
was `seated, he in ' some way alluded, in the
course of his conversation, to the subject of
as discussed in the Banner
'and Advocate for some months previous;
taking exception to some of the positions
assumed by the editor, and a part of his
correspondence; whereupon there sprang
up a discussion between him and the Doctor,
on the eiclesiastical status of the children
of believers before' and after baptism, that
for point, logic, instructiveness, and good
humor, I have seldom heard eprallea, and
never surpassed. The Doctor most cer
tainly won the day ; having the decided ad
vantage of his opponent in memory, mental
perception, quick discernment, Scripture
references, logic, and all the essential char
acteristics of an expert polemic. For more
than two hours, this contest was carried on,
in a spirit worthy of the contestors and
their cause. Throughout, it was highly in
teresting and, instructive, and ended in a
manner both satisfactory and amusing to
me. Certain am I, that if the editor had
always put a tithe of the vim and spirit
into his editorials that he did into this de
bate, no Danville Doctor would have dared
to bring the charge of "dullness" against
the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate.
And now, dear reader, I am fully convinced
that if you desire to see some " sharpness "
in the columns of this paper, all you have
to do is to get some strong, pugnacious
scribe to "pitch in" to'its editor.*
The debate being ended, I stated my
business; which was to get information as to
the residence of Dr. S., a gentleman that
had considerable reputation as an °oculist,
and whom I wished to consult on matters.
of personal importance. My kind friend
at once offered to accompany me to the
office of Dr. S., on Penn Street. We went;
the Doctor was from home—had gone East,
and would not return before the next Mon
day, at which time, his polite son told us,
his father would be happy to see us.
Here the editor and I separated; he re
turning to his sanctum, and I to my ram-.
bling. After strolling for a time in. Liberty
Street, where I must confess to- some sur
prise at the amount of commercial business
that I saw doing there—reminding me of
Market Street, Philadelphia, or the trade
marts of New York—l crossed over to Alle
gheny City, to visit the Rabbis of the Sem
inary, and to ask after the welfare of its
young prophets. It being vacation, (a
thin. , I ought to have remembered,) all the
students were gone away, and the Professors
were " down town," and no one knew when
they would return. I inquired of a domes
tic if the Seminary was open. He said it
wa% I then walked in, and found the noble
edifice as empty of humanity as an editor
or clergyman's pocket generally is of money,
but as clean and as tidy as if it bad just that
morning come from under the hands of
those who are accustomed to use well the
paint-brush and scrub-broom. It looked so
nice that I walked on, and up the stairs, visit
ing every corner, and peeping into every
room that happened not to be locked, seeing
everything I could see, and feeling that it
was no impropriety to do so, .as it was
in part my house, and that every Pres
byterian ought to feel himself at home in
it. In the, centre, of the hall of the third
story, (where the students have their rooms,)
I thought I would try how my voice would
sound in a Theological Seminary. Stopping
here, I imagined I aaw before me all the
present and future Alumni of the Institu
tion, and raising my voice to its highest
key, I said
And every room and corner of the building

I then descended, and every tread of my
foot made such a noise that I feared the
Janitor below would mistake me for an in
terloper. Returning to the city, I reflected
that no one could ever say again that I had
not been through one of the best Theologi
cal Seminaries in the land, and that I had
made no small noise there ; too during my
Stopping at our Book-Rooms, on. St. Clair
Street, I had a long conversation on the sub
ject of religion, with Mr. James A. Irwin,
the Agent, who has since gone to his long
home ! Alas I little did I think, when I
parted with him on that day, that I would
see his face no more ! He told me that
he felt himself declining, and that he
did not expect to live long; but that his
whole trust was in the Lord Jesus Christ,
and that he had no desire `to b'e here an
hour longer, if it was God's will that he
should depart. I have no doubt but that
he died a true Christian. .

and with this design, I went to the depot
of the Pennsylvania Railroad. And 0,
such a depot! It is nothing but a poor,
little, dirty, shanty of a structure, more
like a backwoods station, than a depot in a
city, and at the terminus of a road that
can boast of a double track, over which pass

A ride of eight or ten miles brought me
to the station where I wished to stop.
Meeting kind friends here, with whom I
passed the night, I was taken on the Sab
bath to a Presbyterian church in the vicin
ity, where I saw a very fine church ,edifice,
favorably situated in regard both to ventila
tion and prospect. The congregation was
large, well dressed, and during sermon well
behaved. The preacher was a student of
the Western Theological Seminary, about
to enter the senior year. The sermon was
an excellent one, but not on the text; and
the singing was very, good, being conducted
by a choir, and engaged in by all the con
The only things I saw to which I took ex
ception were, some coming too late, a few
sleeping, and many, when the congregation
was dismissed, indulging too much, both in
and out of the house, the How-do-ye-do
habit. That is, shaking hands and speak
ing out loudly, thus—" Why, Jane ! how
do-yowdo ? Why, I havn't seen you for--a
-"long--time ! Why don't you come to see
me ?" &c. Indeed, there was such a
general shaking of hands, that all in the
house seemed matted together like a pea
vine and the Aunt caused by the salutations,
sounded any thing but devotional in my
ear. But perhaps lam too cynical; and
yet I do think such. sociality quite unbe

The Little Tin Pails
At about six o'clock in the afternoon, a
passenger cannot walk through the . quietest
street in the city without meeting men, each
with a little tin pail in his hand. As the
bearer swings it at his side, and raps it
against his large buttons, one can readily
know it is empty ! Where has he been ?
What has he been doing? What is' the
pail for ? One may not be able to see any
thing in the pail, but after all, it has a
pleasant story in it Early in the morning
that pail is filled. Before the breakfast
things are washed and put away, it is placed
upon the table by a good and industrious
woman, who rose before the sun, to prepare
the morning meal, and bathe and drPss the
children. Her fingers and feet have been
very busy all the morning, and now she
stops all other work to see the labor
ing husband off to his work, and pre
pare his noon meal for him. The
bread and meat, the large piece of pie,
the gingerbread, the pickles, and perhaps
some dainty bit which she has saved for the
man she loves, are placed in the little tin
pail, one after another, until it is full, and
the lid placed - snugly on. He, the , laborer,
stands by and looks on. When all• is fin
ished, he gives a kiss to the youngest, says
a pleasant good morning too his wife, takes
his pail in his hand, and away he goes.
From that time he disappears for the day.
No one asks where he goes, and few know.
He swings the hammer, or pushes the plane,
or practices some other handicraft, in doors
or out. He toils all day for' bread and
clothing for himself and family. His arms
are strong, his heart is courageous, and his
mind content. The rich ride by in their
carriages, but he - cares not. Gay idlers at
tract his eye for a moment, but he despises
them. When noon-time comes, and the
long whistle sounds at the shops, he drops
his work and opens the little tin pail. The.
meat is eaten with' true zest, and the bread
tastes as sweetly as manna, for he has the
health which labor biings. At last he
reaches the bottom, and his eye moistens
as he sees there a piece of fruit, or some
little delicacy, which the kind wife has
smuggled in unknown to him—something
which has cost her self-denial. Is if t that
a sweet meal ? With his appetite, and with
those sweet associations which embalm it, it
is a feast for the gods.
The whistle sounds again, and again the
strong hands and courageous heart are at
work. The day is now upon the wane, but
he grows little weary, for there is a warm
place in his heart which feeds the fire on
which his willing labor depends. His eye
is lifted to the clock, hour after hour, dur
ing, the pauses in his labor; and down falls
the tardy index, until at last, the stroke of
six runs out, and the whistle of release for,
the day gives its welcome blast. Before
him are twelve or fourteen blest hours of
rest I The rough hands are washed, the
shirt sleeves rolled down and buttOned, the
coat put on,, the little tin pail taken from
its hiding place, and he is in the street
again. Now we meet him. . Now the
Streets are full of little tin pails. They
are carried by men who have self
respect, who earn their living, and " owe
not any man." The little tin pail
rings carelessly at their side, the celebration
of a day's labor achieved—of hard money,
A thousand children run to meet the lit
tle tin pails, and beg the privilege of carry
ing them into houses and tenements scat
tered all over the city. In many hundreds
of, these the table is already set out, and
at the fire sits the neatly dressed wife, and
the hissing tea-pot awaiting the husband's
return. Behold the family group gathered
around the evening board! Before those
healthy appetites how quickly the viands
disappear 1 And then, the good wife washes
the tea things where they stand, and the
little tin pail is cleanly wiped out and pol
ished off for the next day's service. Thus,
and thus the days go round, with sound,
sweet sleep between.
Onvrard l :through life he, goes ;
Each morning sees some task begun,
Each evening sees its close ;
Something attempted, something done,
Rae earned a night's repose."
God bless the laborer ! God bless his
companion, the little tin pail. May it ever
more be as full of love and all love's asso
ciations as lit is filled each morn with food,
and may tie food never' fail Few under
stand how ly the little tin pail is the in
dex-of th prosperity of a community. The
more thic 4y we'meet them in the streets,
the more' crosperous do we know that we
are growing.l Oh, let us feel kindly toward
those who bear them:; for labor is the truly
honorable thing among men. There is not
a neatly-graded lawn, a pretty garden, or a
well•trained tree that does not tell of it. It
builds magnificent cities, and builds navies,
and bridges rivers, and lays the railroad
track, and forms every part of the locomo
tive. Wherever a steamer ploughs the
waves, or the long canal bears the nation's
inland wealth; wherever wheat fields wave,
and mill wheels turn; there labor is the
conqueror and the king. The newspaper,
wherever it spreads its wings, bears with it
the impress of toiling hands. Should not
the laborer be well fed ? Should he not be
well housed? Should he not have the best
wife and prettiest children in the world ?
Should not the man who produces all that
we have to eat, and drink, and wear, be
honored ? To us there is more true poetry
about the laboreis life and lot, than any
other man's under heaven. It matters not
in what calling a man toils, if be toils man
fully, honestly, efficiently, and contented.
The little tin pail should be a badge of no
bility every, where, and in the "good time
coming, boys," it will be so.—Springfield
The Handsome Soul.
One day last Winter, a little boy from the
South, who was on a visit to the city, was
taking his first lesson in the art of "sliding
down hill," when he suddenly found his feet
in rather too close bontact with a lady's silk
dress. Surprised, mortified and confused,
he sprang trom his sled, and, cap in hand,
commenced an earnest apology:
"I beg your pardon, ma'am; I am very
" Never mind," exclaimed the lady,
"there is no great harm done, and you feel
worse about it than I do."
"But, dear madam," said the boy, as his
eyes filled with tears, " your dress is ruined.
I thought you would be very angry with me
for being so careless."
" 0, no," replied the lady ;' "better have a
soiled dress than a ruffled temper."
" 0 isn't she a beauty ?" exclaimed the
lad, as the lady passed on.
" Who, that lady ?" returned his com
rade, "if you call her a beauty, you shan't
choose for me; why, she is more than thirty
years old, and her face is yellow and wrin
"I don't care if her face is wrinkled,"
replied the little hero, " her soul is hand
A shout of laughter followed, 'from which
he was glad to escape. Relating the inci
dent to his mother, he remarked :
"0, mother, that: lady did me good, I
shall never forget it; and when I am tempt
ed to indulge my angry passions, I will think
of <what she said--‘ Better have a - soiled
dress than a ruffled temper."
I commenced liming about thirty years
ago, by experimenting with twenty bushels
on half an acre. That half acre looked so
much better the next Spring, that I con
tracted for nine hundred bushels for the
succeeding Fall, and put it on at the rate of
forty bushels per acre. That' gave -me a
great crop on land that was said to have been
cropped thirty years without any manure; I
then got lime for nine cents per bushel,
taking a whole kiln at once. I kept liming
until I- bad all the old , land limed, and it
paid well—the first crop always, paying well
for the cost, besides making much more
straw to increase • the manure. The last I
limed was fourteen years ago; I then made
an experiment with one hundred bushels to
the acre on two acres, and fifty-five bushels
to the acre -on the remainder of the field
(16 acres.) The -- two acres with one hurt•
dred bushels to the acre yielded an im
mense crop; had it not been on the hardest
and poorest part of the field, I presume it
would have all lodged, although lime stif
fens the straw much. The wheat is clearer,
plumper, and of finer quality. A good lim
ing will last for twenty to twenty-five years,
and then the land may require twenty
to twentylve bushels to the acre. I said
that if I was a young man I would lime all
my unlimed land at the rate of eighty bush
els to the acre. It would be little cost for
a few hundred farmers in Western New
York to each try twenty-five bushels on half
an acre of wheat this Fall, and next harvest,
and in all probability long before, they would
see the result. There is nothing that I can
say, or that any other man can say, that will
convince men like their own experience.
A friend to whom I some years since re
commended the use of the " cap," wrote
me recently as follows, concerning it I
find the bay cap . ' all you recommended it
to be, and more. The season in this section
has been very 4. catching but I have had no
hay spoiled or very much damaged, although
in one storm of three days I had out several
tons. My caps protected all except six
cocks, which I covered partially with sheets
from. the beds. I have used the caps in
protecting my oats, wheat, rye, barley and
peas, and have more than saved their entire
cost in two seasons, the caps being now as
good, to all appearance, as when they were
first made up. My neighbors are using
them this season."
HORSES UGLY TO CATOH.—When I put
my horse to pasture, I found him very bad
to catch. I tried salt, oats, sugar &c., but
all to no purpose. One, alone, could not
catch him. Though this difficulty might
help to cultivate the principle of patience,
it does so quite unpleasantly, and 'I resolved
to try some plan less troublesome; so I pur
chased a pair of trace-chains at a hardware
store, had them .welded into one, and the
hooks taken off, and then fastened one end
around the horses neck, letting the other
drag upon the ground. The result was, I
had no more trouble to catch my horse.—

To Coos. REWBARB.-It is a common
error in cooking rhubarb, to peel it. This
should never be done, as, the skin contains
the aroma of the plant, and is not at all fib
rous, but cooks readily and becomes pulpy.
We have derived this information from a
French cook of experience and skill. The
same cook tells us that asparagus should be
cut into pieces about three quarters of an inch
long before cooking It should be boiled
with a nice piece of salt pork, and served
up in the same manner as peas.
A Goon Cow.—At a sale of farming

Full in her bosom, small in her shins
Long in her face, fine in her tail,
And never' deficient in' felling her pail.

will remain atthe ST. CLAIR HOTEL, Pittsburgh; Pa., till
SATURDAY EVENING JULY 18th, where he may be ,con
sulted by those wiebing to avail themselves of Dr. C. AL
Fitch's system of treatment.
The combination of remedial measures adopted by Dr.
Pitch and Dr. Sykes has been so amply tested, and so abund
antly proved to be in practice all that it claims to be is
theory, that ifs originators do not hesitate to assert, that by
their system, relief may be obtained in all eases not abso
lutely beyond the reach of remedies.
By this plan of treatment, the advantage of Medicinal
and Stheuotrophic Inhalations is added to that of appropri
ate internal remedies, to renovate and sustain the strength
of the general system, and these with such mechanical
m e a ns as the case may indicate, joined to proper attention
to exercise, diet, bathing, friction, itc., &c., will not only
afford more or lass relief in 41111013 t all cases, but will effect
permanent cures in many CUSS; in which only,partial, and
temporary relief couldrbe obtained from any one of the
above measures singly. But although many otherwise fatal
oases of consumption may be thus relieved, theraare; still
many which have passed beyond hope; and those' who are
in any way inclined to a disease so insidious. and so fearful
ly fatal as consumption,
cannot be too careful to give their
cases tiendy attention. The delay even of a few weeks may,
in many cases, turn the scale against the patient.
Where it is possible, we always prefer to make' &personal
examination, and thus , ascertain the precise condition of the
Lungs as we wish to undertake no case' where we have not
a chance of doing good ; and we wish no one to consult us
who is not ready to hear the truth.
Those unable to visit us will, in writing, be careful to
state their cases fully, answering,. at length, our published
list Of Questions, which will be , sent to any 'requesting it;
and the necessary remedieei as well for diseases of the
Lungs and Stomach, as for. Female Diseases, may be sent by
Express to alniost any part of the 'United States.
