and to make and maintain a position rarely, if ever before attained in the history of litera-

sented to the world's patronage, as were the Waverley Novels, solely upon its own intrinsic
merit and infallible virtues, confident that, where once tried, it will be more surely rosorted

directions given, this medicine will most surely cut short and cure, as if by mugio, nine-
tenths of all acute diseases. 6 '

prove most suoeessfal in general practice. In fact, a history of fevers and inflammations is
almost a history of medicine.

of steam in any of its applications. The modern practice
best and most recent standard authors, is to apply as a means of cure in all fevers and in-
flammations a set of remedies, by them termed « antiphlogistics"-such as bleeding in some
or other, either at the arm, or by leeches, and then to purge, and this too quite freely,
at the same time to give calomel and opium, or blue pill, or morcury in some form or
other. In using this set of remedies, the object they had in view was to cut short or subdue
the fever and inflammations which they rarely if ever accomplished. Now, in place of this
injurious practice, is offered to the public a set. of remedies in the form of pills, possessing the
rare power of speedily, safely and effectually curing all these maladies. Now, the sot of
remedies termed antiphlogiatics, was indiscriminately applied in all cases of fever and in-
flammation, in compliance with all regular and standard authorities in medicine, and failed
in nearly every case where the aim was prompt, and speedy relief proving successful only
in far too small a per contage of cases; whereas the set of remedies combined in the form and
under the name of the Magio Waverley Pills, will rarely, if ever, fail to give relief, speedily,
promptly and safely. The time has past when it can be considered a merit to look back and
to do as our fathers did before us ¡ and this as well in medicine as in the ordinary affairs of
life Modern science is rapidly regenerating the art, and a new era is about to dawn on the
nraotioe of medicine. Organic ( homistry is especially wholly revolutionising it, pointing out
to the laborious student how and wherein the solids and fluids of the human frame differ in
disease from thoir usuul standard of health, thus enabling us understanding^ to apply the
proper remedies ¡ and as one of tho most prominent and conspicuous of these improvements,
is now offered, In advance ef the present stato of practical medicine, the greatest febrifuge
and antiphlogistic ever known. It cures, as if by magio, all kinds of fevers

be a terror to tbo human family, as a perma-

of tho cases falling into the hands of incompe-
tent persons, who not only fail to eure tho dis-
eases but ruin the constitution, filling the sys>
torn with mercury, which, with the disease,
hastens tho sufferer into rapid consumption.
But should the disease and the treatment
not oauso death speodlly, and the victim mar-
ries, the disease is entailed upon the children,
who are born with feeble constitutions, and
the current of life corrupted by a virus whioh
betrays itself in sorofula, tetter, ulcers, erup-
tions and other affections of the skin, eyes,
throat and lungs, entailing upon them a brief
existence of suffering, and consigning tbem
to an early grave.
SELF ABUSE is another formidable ene-
my to health, for nothing else in the dread
catalogue of human diseases causes so destruct
ivo a drain upon the system, drawing its thous-
ands of victims through a few years of suffering
down to an untimely grave. It destroys the
nervous system, rapidly wastes away the en-
ergies ot life, causes mental derangement,

the equally poisonous nostrums vended as
" Patent Medicines." I have carefully ana-
lysed many of the so called Patent Medicines
and find that nearly all of them contain Cor-
