any other in use. Wherever relief is to be obtain

For reference, Testimonials, &c., send for
Opinions of the Press.
The Louisville Journal says : " The testimoni
als which Dr. Gardner presents to the public
could never have Keen obtained, except by the
display of great skill and learning in his profes
sion. One thing especially commendable in the
Doctor's pra :ticc is, that he will not attempt an
incurable disease for the sake of a fee, but frankly
tells the putient whether he enn be cured or not
We cheerfully recommend Dr. Gardner to the
attention of all our friends who may be suffering
from diseases of the eye or ear."
The Richmond Times says : " We have no hes
itation in saying that Dr. Gardner is the most
scientific and successful eye aud car Surgeon in

REASON WHY TIIE
Made, at WALTUAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
composed of SOLID PLATES. Nor jar can in
terfere with the harmony of its working and no
sudden shock can damage its machinery. Every
piece is made and finished by machinery (itself
famous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ness) nnd is therefore properly made. The watch
is what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
SIMPLE. STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
cept some high grades, too costly forg eners.1 use,
foreign watches are chiefly made by women and
boys. Such watches are composed of several
hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
aud require constant repairs to keep t'lem in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
"ancres" "lepiues" aud "English Patent Le
vers," are perfectly well aware ol tiie truth of
At the beginning of our enterprise more than
ten years ago, it was our first object, to make a
thoroughly goo- low priced watch for the mill
ion, to take the place oa these foreign imposi
tions; the refuse of foreign factories, which were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
. low well we have accompolisbed this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public tiial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL TIIE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
given such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is continued with in
creased facilities for perfect work, wc are at pre
sent engaged in the manufacture of watches of
the very HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO
CHRONOMETRY, nnequaled by anythiug hither
to made by ourselves, and nnsurpassed by &uy
tbing made in the world. For this purpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected au
addition to our main building expressly for this
branch of our business, and have tilled it with the
best workmen in our service. New machines
and appliances have been constructed which per
form their work with consummate delicacy aud
exactness. The choicest and most approved ma
terials only are used, and we challenge compari
son between this grade of our work and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not; pretend to
self our watches for less monet t han toreign
watches, bnt we do assert without fei'.r of contra
diccion that for the samb money ou r product is
incomparably superior. All our watel ics, of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, aud this warran
tee is good at all times against us or our agents
in all parts of the world.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of responsible dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
