Consumption and All diseases of the lungs and Throat a7k p081t1vklycurable by inhalation which conveys tin Remedios to the cavities in the lungs through the us passages and coming in direct Contact with the disease a neutralizes the tubercular matter allays the cough a causes a free and easy expectoration heals the lungs a petrified the blood imparts renewed vitality to the nervous system giving that tone and Energy so indispensable for the restoration of health. Tobe Able to state oof Dently that consumption is Enra Bie by inhalation is to me a source of unalloyed pleasure. It is As much hinder the control of medical treatment As any other formidable disease j ninety out of every Hundred cases Enn to cured in the first stages and fifty percent in the second but in the third stage it is impossible to save More than five per cent for the lungs Are so Cut up by the disease As to defy medical skill. Even however in the last stages inhalation affords extraordinary Relief to the suffering attending this fearful Scourge which annually destroys ninety five thousand persons in the United states alone and a Correct calculation shows that of the present population of the Earth eighty millions Are destined to fill the consumptive a grave. Truly the quiver of death has no Arrow so fatal As consumption. In All Ages it has been the great enemy of life for it spares neither age nor sex but sweeps off alike Tho Brave the Beautiful the Graceful and the gifted. By Tho help of that supreme being from whom Chineth every Good and perfect gift i am enabled to offer to the afflicted a permanent and speedy cure in consumption. The first cause of tubercles is from impure blood and the immediate effect produced by their deposition in the lungs is to prevent the free admission of air into the air Colls which causes a weakened vitality through Tho entire system. Then surely it is More rational to expect greater Good from medicines entering Tho cavities of Tho lungs than from those administered through the stomach Tho patient will always find the lungs free and the breathing easy after inhaling remedies. True inhalation is a local remedy nevertheless it acts constitutionally and with Moro Power and certainty than remedies administered by the stomach. To prove the powerful and direct influence of this Mode of administration chloroform inhaled will destroy sons ibid a Ity in a few minutes paralysing the entire nervous sys elem so that limb maybe amputated est pain inhaling the Ordinary burning Gas will destroy life in a few hours. system when fainting or apparently dead. The odor of Many of the a medicines is perceptible in the skin a few moments after being inhaled and May be immediately detected in the blood. A convincing proof of the constitutional effects of inhalation is the fact that sickness is always produced by breathing foul air. Is not this positive evidence that proper remedies carefully prepared and judiciously administered through the lungs should produce the most Happy results ? during eighteen years practice Many thousands suffering from diseases of the lungs and Throat have been under my care and i have effected Many remarkable Curas even after the sufferers had been pronounced in the lust stages which fully satisfies me that consumption is no longer a fatal disease a my treatment of consumption is original and founded on Long experience and a thorough investigation. My perfect acquaintance with the nature of tubercles &<., enables me to distinguish read Fly the various forms of disease that simulate consumption Anu apply the proper remedies rarely bring mistaken even in a single cases this familiarity in connection with certain pathological and microscopic discoveries enables me to relieve i he lungs from the effects of contracted chests to in Largo the Chest purify the Wood import to it renewed vitality giving Energy and . Medicines with full directions sent to any part of the United states and Canadas by patients communicating their symptoms by letter. But the cure would be More certain if the patient should to a visit which would give me an Opportunity to examine the lungs anti enable me to prescribe with much greater certainty and then the cure could be effected without my seeing the patient again.

I Cau see her now. Her eyes rating the Light of heaven her brow White Calm and holy her lips wreathed with the Blessing of her smile. She was As Graceful of a form seen in dreams and she moved through the scenes around her As you have Scon the angelic visitors of your slumbers move through crowded assemblies without Effort apparently with some supernatural Aid a the child of wealth she was fitted to adorn the splendid House in which she was born and grew to womanhood. It was a grand old place built in the midst of a growth of Oaks that might have been there when Columbus Dis lived America and seemed Likely to stand a Century longer. They Are standing yet and the wind to night makes a wild lament through their branches that sounds mournfully above her grave. A i Thust pause to recall the scenery of the old familiar spot. There was a Stream of water that dashed Down the Rooks a Hundred Yards from Tho House and which kept always full and fresh an it Ere of Pond Over which hung Maples an Willows and other Trees while on the surface the White blossoms of the Lotus nodded lazily on Tho Ripples with egyptian sleepiness and Lang tor Quot the old House was built of Urark Stone and had a massive Appo Striho not of believed by Tho sombre Shade in which it stood the Sunshine Seldom penetrated to the ground in the summer i Baths except in one spot just in front of the Library windows where it used to lib and sleep in too grass As it loved the old place. And if Sunshine loved it Why should not i. A gen. Lewis was one of too pleasant old fashioned men now quite gone out of memory As Well As out of existence. He loved his horses his dogs his place and his punch. He loved his Nephew Tom wild uncouth rough cub As he was a but above horses dogs or House or altogether to loved his daughter Sara a and i loved her too. A yes you May look at too As you will Phil., i loved Sarah Lewis and by All the gods i now As i loved her then and As i shall Lov Oiher again if i meet her where she has gone. A Call it Folly Call it Boyish Call it old Many a second childhood i care not by what name you Call it it is enough that to night the image of that Young girl stands before Jne splendidly Beautiful in All the holiness of her Young glad life and i could Bow Down on my Knoes and worship her now again. A a Why did-1 say gain ? for forty years Ibave not ceased to worship her. If i Kneel to Pray in too morning she passes Between to and god.e-7 if i would read the prayers at evening Quot Twilight she looks up at to from the Page. If i would worship on a Sabbath morning in the Church she looks Down on me from Somo unfathomable distance some height and i Pray to her As she were my Hope my heaven and my Anda sometimes in Winter nights i Feci a coldness stealing Over me and icy fingers Are feeling Abent my heart As if to gra3p and still it. I lie calmly quietly and i think my hour is at hand and through too gloom and through too mists and films that gather Over vision i see her far off still the same Angel in the Distant heaven and j cry aloud on god to let me go and find her and on her to come to me and then thick darkness settles on to. A the doctor Calls this apoplexy and says i shall Somo Day Dio in a fit of it. What do doctors know of the tremendous Xinliu Oncas that Are working on our souls he in his Sion Tiofio stupidity Calls it a disease acid warns me against wine and Hilf living As if i did not understand what it is and Why my vision at such times reaches so very far into the Doc unknown. A i Havo spoken of Tom Lewis her Rumor said he was the old Many a heir in equal proportion with toe daughter for he bad been brought up in Tho family and had always been treated As a son. File was a Good fellow if to was rough for he had the goodness that All who come within her inf Fucco must have. A a i have seen her look too Devil out of him often. I remember Onee when the horses behaved in a Way not to suit him and to had to let an oath or two escape his lips preparatory to putting on the whip. We were Riding together Down the Avenue and he raised the lash. At the moment to caught her Eye. She was walking up from the Lodge where she had been to Seo a sick she saw the raised whip and her Eye caught his. He did not strike. The horses escaped for that time. He drove them quietly through the Gate Aud three Miles and Back without a word of anger. A a did i Tell you i was her Cousin also ? on her mothers Side. Not on toe general a. We lived not far off and i lived a much of my time at his House. Tom and myself had been inseparable and we did not conceal our rivalry from each other. A Tom a said i one morning a Why can to you to Content with half the general a Fortune and let to Havo too other half Bah 1 Jerry Quot said he a was if that would to any Moro even when you want Surah with it. In heavens name take half the Money if that Sall you Quot can to we fix it so As to make an even division Tom ? take All the Fortune and let me Havo her and i la Call it a just what i was going to propose to you. Be reasonable now Jerry and get out of the Way you must see so disc no to care a poppy for a i twirled a Rosebud in my fingers that she had Given to that morning and replied. A poor Devil i did not. Think you could to so infatuated. Why Tom there isun Chance for you under the Sun but go ahead find it out As you will. In a sorry for Hundred such pleasant talks we used to have and she never gave either of us one Particio More of encouragement than the other. She was like a sister to us both Aud neither dared Brake too spell of our perfect happiness by asking her to to a Maud so time passed one sunday to Wero off together on horseback All three Olus Over the Mountain and Down the Valley. We were returning towards Sunset sauntering along Tho Road Down the Sido of too a Phil stir the fire a Little. That bowl of punch is getting Eold it seems to to and i am a Little Shiuey myself. Perhaps it is the recollection of that Day that chills a i had made up my mind if Opportunity occurred to Tell her that Day All that i had thought for years. I Rad determined to know Onee for Ali if she would love to or a if not i would go i cared not where the world was Broad enough and it should to to some place where i should never Sec her face again never hear her voice again never Bow Down and worship Hor magnificent Beauty again i would go to Russia Aud offered myself to the Czar or to Syria and Light with Napoleon or to Egypt Aud serve with the men of Murad Bay. Ail notions were military i remember and All my ideas were of War and death on the a i Rode by her Side and looked up at her occasionally and thought she was looking splendidly. I had never seen her More so. Every attitude was Grace Ever look was life Aud a Tom lung close to her. Ono would have thought to was watching the very Opportunity i was after myself. Now to Rode a few paces Forward and As i was catching my breath to say Sarah be would rein up and Fallback to his Plano and i would make some Flat remark that made me seem like a fool to myself if not to her. A what is toe matter with you Jerry a said she at length. A a Jerry Siu love a said Tom. A i could have thrashed him on the in love Jerry in love 1�?� nud she turned her Large Brown eyes towards me. A in vain i sought to fathom them Aud arrive at some co Elution whether or no the subject interested her with special Force. A Tho eyes remained fixed till i blundered out the old saw Tom judges others by a then the eyes turned to Tom and he pleaded guilty by his awkward Quot looks and half blushes averted eyes and forced laugh. A by heaven a thought a what would i not give for Toms awkard nes now Tho scoundrel is winning his Way by a Jerry is Tom in love Tho naivete of Tho question Tho correctness of it the very simplicity of the going was irresistible and i could not repress a Smilo that grew into a Broad laugh. A Tom joined in it Aud we made Tia Woods ring with our i say Tom Isnit that your whip lying Back yonder in Tho Road confound it yes the Cord has broken from toy wrist a and he Rode Back for it. A Jerry who does Tom love a said she quickly turning to me. A. A Quot you a said i bluntly. A Why of course a but who is lie in love with i mean it was a curious Way to get. At it. Could i be justified ? it was not asked what i had intended but it was getting at it in another Way and just As Well perhaps. It was at All events asking loins question for Bim and it saved to the embarrassment of putting it As my own. I determined this instant. A Sarah could you love Tom Well enough to marry him a. Quot i Jerry what do you mean suppose Tom wants you to to his wife will you marry him 7�?� a i done to tt���?1 never thought of such a thing. You done to think lie has any such idea do you a Quot that was my answer. It was enough As far As it went but i was no bettor off than Slie did not love Tom or she would never Havo answered thus. By Wjt did she Lovo to ? would not she just Tho same Way i looked Back. Tom was 011 the ground bad picked up his whip and. Had one foot in the Stirrup ready to mount age in. I gulped Down my heart that was up in my Throat and spoke out. Quot Sarah will you marry me Philip she turned her eyes again toward to a those Largo Brown eyes those holy eyes and blessed me with there unutterably glorious game. To my dying hour i shall not forget that Gaie to All eternity it will remain in my soul. She looked at me one look and whether it was pity sorrow Surprise or Lovo i cannot toll you that filled them and Over sowed towards 1110 from out their immeasurable Depths Bat Philip it was the last Light of those eyes i never saw the last. A is there anything left in that bowl ? thank you. Just a Glass Ful. You will not Taka any then by your leave i will finish it. My Story is nearly ended and i will not keep you up much longer. A we bad not noticed so absorbed bad we been in our pleasant talk that a Black Cloud had risen in the West and obscured Tho Sun Aud covered to sky. And even Tho sultry air Hadnot called our attention to toe coming Thunder storm a was she looked at toe even fixed her eyes on Mino a Flash blinding and fierce fell on the top of a tree by too Roadside not fifty Yards from us and the crash of Thunder Shook the foundations of the Hills. Quot por a moment All was dazzling burning blazing Light then sight was gone and a momentary darkness settled on , the horses Popuch de to too ground in terror and so re a flowed her head of if in presence of god. ,. A fall this was he work of an instant and the next Toms horse sprang by us on a furious Gallop dragging Tom by the Stirrup. To had been in toe of mounting when too Flash came and his horse swerved and jumped so that his foot caught and to dragged with his head on the ground. A there was a Point in the Road about fifty Yards Quot where it divided in two. The Oue was too Carriage track which wound Down the Mountain by easy descents the other was a foot path which was a Short precipitous Cut to a Pointon the Carriage Road nearly a Quarter of a mile below. A Colling to Sarab to keep Back and wait i drove too spurs into my horse and went Down toe Steep path. Looking Back i Sawyer following her horse making tremendous Speed. She kept the Carriage Road following on after Tom and i a pressed on thinking to intercept his horse below. A my Pace was terrible. I could hear them thundering Down the track above. I looked up and caught sight of them through Trees. I looked Down and saw a Gully before me full eighteen feet wide and As Many deep. A a great horse was to Harblack horse Cesar and he took the Gully at a flying Loop that landed us far Over it and a moment later i was at a Point where the roads again met but Only in time to Seo too other two he sos go by at a furious Pace Sarah a abreast of the Gray and she reaching her hand out bravely trying to grasp the flying rein As her horse went leap for leap Vith him. To Rido close behind them was worse than use loss in Buch a Case. It would serve to increase their Speed to i fell Back a dozen rods and followed watching the end. A at the foot of Tho Mountain the River ran Broad and deep spanned by toe Bridge at the narrowest Point. To reach the Bridge the Road took a Short turn no Stream directly on the Bank. A on swept the Gray and Black horses Side by 1 Side Down the Hillside not fifty leaps along the level ground and then came the turn j Quot she was on Tho off Side. At to Sharp turn j she pressed ahead a half length and veined her j horse across to Greys shoulder if possible to j turn him up toward the Bridge. A it was All Over in an instant. The Grey was i toe heavier horse. He pressed her close the j Black horse yielded gave Way toward the Fence stumbled and Tho Fence a Light rail broke with i a crash and they went Over All together into the deep Black Stream j a still the sound of that crash Aud plunge is in j my ears. Still i can see them go headlong Down toe Bank together into the Doc Black water. A i never knew exactly what i did then. When i was conscious i found myself swimming around in a Circle diving occasionally to find them but j in vain. The Grey horse swam ashore and stood on the Bank by my Black with distended nostrils j and trembling limbs shaking from head to foot. With terror. The other Black horse was floating Down the surface of the Stream drowned. His mistress was no where to be seen and Tom was i gone also. J a i found her at Quot i a restore her no a glance at her face show a cd How vain All such Hope was. Never was human face so angelic she was already Ono of Tho saintly Ono of Tho immortals and the Beauty and glory of her now life had left some faint likeness of itself on her dead form and face. A Philip i said i had never grown a Day older since that time. You know not Why. I have never ceased to think of her As on that Day. I have never lost the Blessing of those eyes As they looked on me in the Forest on the Mountain Road. I have never left her Nover grown Avny from her. If,.in the resurrection we Are to Rel no the bodies most exactly fitted to represent our whole lives if As i have sometimes thought we shall a Rise in toe form and feature As i was that Day und 110 record will remain fan hour of my life after her burial. A we Buthod her 111 toe Quot old vault close by the House among the solemn Oaks. Beautiful angst like to the very last. A my voice is broken. I can say no More Philip. Yon have the Story. That is the whole of it. God bless you Phil my boy. You have list Enedy patiently to my talk. A Good night go to bed. Ill stay Hoiu in the old chair awhile. I done to exactly feel i left him silting there his head bowed on his breast his eyes closed his breathing Short and heavy As if with suppressed grief. My own eyes wore misty. In to Hall i found John sitting Bolt upright in a Largo chair. A. A a Why John i thought toe major sent you to bed Long ago a Quot yes sir the major always sends to to bed it toe third bowl sir and i always done to go. He has been telling you the old Story now Baeny a he ?�?� a what old Story John a Why about Mies Lewis and Milter Tom and the general a John Laid his Long Black Finger knowingly up the Side of his nose and looked at me. Quot Why John you done to mean to say he fall punch what Sarah and the Black horse and fall punch,.sir.�?�, a John my Man go in Aud take care of is either asleep or drunk. Curious that Why did no to i think that a Man was hardly to be believed after the second bowl and perfectly incredible on the third. By Jovo 1 he is a turnip at. A Atory . A it would to diff put to describe All that i dreamed about that night quo memory never Dies. One of toe survivors of toe Central America in narrating his sensations while floating on the Waves after the vessel had sunk gives Tho following forcible illustration of Tho Powers of memory a ,. A i guess i had been about four hours in too water and had floated away from the rest when Tho Waves cot sed to Snake any noise and i heard my Mother say i ,. A a Johnny did you cat Sisters grapes a i Hadnot thought of it for Twenty years at least. It had g no Lear out or my mind. I had a sister that died of consumption More than thirty years ago and when Sli was sick i was a boy of eleven or so a neighbor bad sen Hersome Early hot Bouso . It Ell. These grapes were left in a room where was and i ought to have been skinned Ohvo of dec t. Little Rascal that i was i devoured them All Mother came to me after i had gone to bed for sister to a Mouth with in too night and said. A Johi by did y u cat Sist res grapes a i did not add to the meanness of my conduct by Telting a to. I owned up and my Mother went away in Tea 3 1 t w thou flogging me. It occasioned in a Many a qualm of conscience for Many years after Quot but As i said for Twenty years at least i had not thought of i to till when i was float aug about benumbed with Eold i heard it As Plain As i Over heard her voice in my life i heard my Mother say a Johnny did you eat Sisters grapes a i done to know How to account for it. It did not scare me though i thought it was a presage of my that unlucky nose. George Frederick Chilton a very handsomely dressed Yoang gentleman with Auburn whiskers and moustache of Tho same color complained that Simon Bolivar i Uddin amp a had pulled Bis nose in Tho Piazza of a fashionable hotel where both of these youngsters have fixed their abode. Chilton Tho proprietor of the injured nose is a very tall person and stud Oman the nose Puller is a very Short one so that it is difficult to Connieve How the latter could perpetrate the outrage without the help of a Stepladder or some such convenience a the Story told by sir. Chilton Tho sufferer was so that the whole auditory seem extreme j Affe de to melt at tie recital. A your Honor May observe said he that my nose has an unhealthy appearance in fact it is much swollen Aud inflamed and i have some reason to fear that it will be permanently diseased. All a hese unpleasant effects sir have been caused by the violent conduct of my appears to be a sort of mania or moral epidemic at our hotel every Man urho stops there becomes infected As i should judge with an unconquerable desire to execute the feat and my nose is constantly selected As the most suitable subject for the Experiment. I dare say your Honor would be puzzled were you to attempt to guess Bow Many times this nose had been pulled within the last three months.0 a it is impossible for me to make any such calculation or. Chilton a said Tho magistrate. A of course sir you can form no idea of the incredible number of times this has been repeated. I hesitate to mention the figure for fear you might find it difficult to believe though my veracity has never been impeached and i am not at All Given to boasting. I us pretty sure however that no door Bell in our Street has been tugged of incr during the autumn of 1857, Tau this unfortunate if Whatman you to to provoke so Many assaults a asked the magistrate. A that is the strangest part of the business answered Chilton. A Al am always giving offence without meaning it one of the boarders charges me with winking at Bis wife or Bis sister and pulls my nose on that Senoro another tweaks my nose because i do not proper attentions to his female relations a third pulls because i offer to stand a treat and a fourth because i neglect to make the game offer in Short they Are never at a loss for one pretence or another. This gentleman pointing to Kuddie amp a polled my nose because i peeped Over his head into a looking Glass at which he was adjusting his shirt Collar. His head was so much below the level of my own that i actually did not observe him until i Felt the pressure of his fingor and thumb. Now sir continued or. Chilton if Tho Law cannot protect my nose i shall have to enclose it in a Case of shagreen or japanes tin As a Safe guard against ill treatment i am not such a milk sop As to mind a Small inconvenience and an occasional tweak if managed with any degree of tenderness and delicacy might be passed Over a As a trifle. But the rough style in which they overdo Tho thing by constant repetition is rather More a think than any Man of Honor and spirit cd Ubo expected to put up a the magistrate seemed to think so too and therefore took All the Pessary measures for a be Protection of or.
