IT8 CURE AND IT8 PREVENTIVE.
By JJ H. BCHEHCE, K. 9.
Manya human belnghas passed away for whose
death there was no other reason-than the neglect of
knows and Indisputably proven means or core.
Those near and dear to family and Mends ara
sleeping the dreamless slumber Into which, had
they calmly adopted
SB. JOSEPH H. SCBTEJiCK'S SDffl?
and availed themselves of bis wonderfully effica
cious medicines, they would not baye lallen.
Dr. Sehende bas In bis own case proved that
wherever sufficient vitality remains, that vitality,
by his medicines and his directions for their use, la
quickened Into healthful vigor.
In this statement there ls nothing presumptuous.
To the faith of the Invalid is made no representation
that ls nota thousand times substantiated by living
and visible works. The theory af t&e cure by Cr.
Schenck's medicines IS as simple 03 lt is nneAiytiff,
Ita philosophy requires no argument. It ls self-as
The Sea-weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the
first two weapons with which the citadel.of the
malady Is assailed. Two-thirds of the cases or con
sumption originate in dyspepsia and a functionally
disordered liver. With this condition the bronchial
tabes "sympathize" with the stomach- Th ey re
spond U> themorblflc action of the liver. Here then
comes the culminating result, and Ule setting in,
with all its distressing symptoms of
The Mandrake Plus are composed of one ot Kv
tore's noblest gifts- tho PodophiUum Pel tata m.
They possess sil the blood-searching, alterative
properties of calomel, but, unlike calomel, they
"LEAVE sro snare BEHDTD."
The work orcuse ls now beginning. The vitiated
and mucous deposits In the bowels and tn the ali
mentary canal are ejected. The liver, like a block,
ls wound up. It arouses from its torpidity? Thu
stomach acta responsively, and tho patient begins
to feel that he ls getting, at last,
. _ A SCl'PLY OF ?DOD BLOOD.
The Sea-Weed Tonic, to conjunction with the PIU?,
permeates and assimilates witta the food. Chyllfl
catlon ls now progressingwitbout ita previous tor
tures. Digestion becomes painless, and the core ls
seen to be at band. There ls no more flatulence, no
exacerbation of the stomach. An appetite sets In.
Now comes tho greatest Blood Purifier aver yet
gvon by on Indulgent Auber to soflfermir man.
ibenck's Pulmonic syrup comes lu to perform ita
functions apd to hasten and complete the" core. It
enters at once upon Its work. Nature c*n not bo
cheated. It collects and ripens tho Impaired and
diseased portions of the longa. In the foxm of
gatherings, it prepares them for expectoration, and
lol in avery short time the malady ls vanquished,
the rotten throne that lt occupied is renovated ana
made new, and the patient, m all the dignity ofre
galned vigor, ?cps raith to enjoy the Tarawi or
womanhood that was
fimni u? AS LOST.
The second thing is, the patients must stay in* a
warm room until they get weU ; lt ls almost Impos
sible, to prevent taking cold when the lungs are die
eased, but lt must b? prevented or a cure cannot be
effected. Fre?ih air and riding out, especially in this
section of the country, In the fall ant winter sea
son, are-an vron*.- Physicians who recommend
that coarse lose their patienta, if their lungs are
badly diseased; and y et, because theyarefn tho
bouse they must not sit down quiet: they, must walk
about the room ss mach and as fast as the strength
wiU bear, to got up a good circulation of blood. The
Satienta must keep in good spirits-be determined
) get .wen. This lias's great deal to do with the
appetite, and ta the great point to gain.
. To despair of cure*'after such evidence of Its pos
sibility in the worst enea, and moral .certainty ht
an others, ls sinful.' Dr. Sehen cit's irersonru state
ment to the Faculty of his own cure was in these
modest words:- '
" Many yes-ts ago I was in the last stages of con
sumption; confined to my bed, and at one time my
physicians thoughtth at leonid hot Uvea week? then,
like a drownlng-man catching at straws, I heard of
and obtained tho preparations walch 1 now oner to
tho public, and they made a perfect cure of me. It
seemed to me that I could feel them penetrate my
whole system. They soon ripened the matter In my
lungs, and I .would spit up more than a pint of offen
sive yellow matter every morning for alonathne,
"As soon as that began to subside, my cough, I
I soon gained my strength, and have grown In flesh
ever since. t
" I was weighed shortly after my recovery," added
the Doctor, irthon lookingUko a mere skeleton ; my
weight was only pinety-seven pounds; my present
weight ls two hundred and twenty-nvc(2B) po ands,
and for years! have enjoyed uninterrupted health."
Dr. Schenck has discontinued his professional
visits to New York and Boston. He or his son. Dr.
J, H. Schenck, Jr., stUl continue to see patients at
their Office, Na 16 North ?ixthBtreet, Philadelphia,
every Saturday from. 9 A.1?. to* pac "Those who
wish a thorough examination with the Resplre
meUTwU! be charged ?5, The Besplrometexdeclare?
the" exact condition of the lungs, and patients can
readily learn whether ttaey are curable oj not. .
The directions for taking the medicines are adapt
ed to the Intelligence even of a child.- Follow these
directions, and kind Nature win do the rest, except
ing that In some cases the Mandrake Pills are to be
token -In Increased doses : the three medicines need
no other accompaniments than the ample Instruc
tions that accompany them: First create appetite.
Of returning health, hunger ls the most welcome
symptom. When lt comes,aa lt will come, let the
despairing at once be of good cheer. Good blood at
once follows, the cough loosens, the night-sweat ta
abated. In-a short time both of these morbid symp
toms are gone forever, 1
Dr. Schenck's medicines ore constantly kept in
tons of thousauds of families. As a laxative or pur
gative, the Mandrake Fills are a standard prepara
tion; while the Pulmonic Syrup, as a cure of coughs
and colds, may be regarded as a propbylacterlc
against consumption In any of Its forms.
