The celebrated author, in this admirable
Essay, clearly demonstrates, from a thirty
years' successful practice, that the alarming
consequences of self-abuse may be radically
cured without the dangerous use of internal
medicine or the application of the knife;
pointing out a mode of cure at once simple,
certain, and effectual, by means of which
every sufferer, no matter what his condition
may be, may cure himself cheaply, private

takXl jgrown stronger, ', and 1 give
this to the' public as an evidence
that truth," if not ' stranger than
fictiouy has at least a more fearful
realization. The following- is the
Btorj ; . : .
trae Btornav night m December,
during a visit of my familj to
Poughkeepsie, I was fill alone," the
servants even being away at a wake,
or wedding, when a ring at the
doofMxll aummoned me to the hall,
and, on opening the door, was cons
fronted by a large fine looking man,
well dressed, and of pleasing manv
" Good evening," said he, in a
splendid eice. 'sThia is Dr. B '
is it not?" ' i:--
That i my name, sir," I
replied blandly. -Will you walk
''Thank you, sir," he returned,
in a manner that showed him to be
proficient in politeness. " Are you
reengaged for the evening, doctor?
I mm 'f Dnl'.l T
" 1 am very glad that you are,
sir, be replied; " it gives me an
opportunity I have long desired of
Conversing with you upon anatomical
science, with, perhaps, some prac
tical illustrations;" and with this
he'Tol lowed me into my oiSee and
seated himself before the comforta
ble crate. .
41As he had apparently forgotten
to leave bis hat on the rack in vhe
hall, I requested him to take it off,
and offered to carry it to the hall
tor him. and while he rose to take
-it off it gavts me a fine opportunity
toTobserve his splendid physique.
Ie was apparently over sir feet in
height, and of muscular proportions,
a very Apollo in form, with hand
some, regular features, a fine mus
tache, and luminous black eyes that
at times had a wonderful glitter in
"Who bave I the honor of meet-

"Ah!" he replied, with a smile,
!as to. the honor, you are . ' raising a
question; as to the name, I am
wenng one in the card I have
the honor of presenting to you."
Un a handsesaeiy -written card 1
read the nme, "John Dalhousie,
M. D., No, 7a Lombard street,
ondon, and immediately I enter
tained a higher, feelrfjg of respect
for my visitor, and attached more
importance to the visit. A lecture
of mine upon anatomy had been
ready and favorably commented
upon by the Board of Surgeons in
London, and I was vain enough to
think that th& . had ' induced the
visit; so X extended all , my hospi
tality to my visitor, and placed be-
ore him wines and cigars, and we
entered into an animated conversa.
tion, in whicn I found him well read
and deeply. versed in medicine and
surgery, and the appearences were
that 1 had more to learn, from him
than to impart.
I noticed, as he sipped the vine
from time to time, that . the gleam
of his black eyes grew more intense,
but I supposed this came from his
deep interest in the subject of our
conversation. He then proposed
that sriould go to my dissecting-
room," irhich 1 had located " on top
floor tor the beneht of a line sky
light, and with pleasure .1 led the
way, and lit a nre in tne stove,
which 1 always kept ready to touch
off, so that we soon had a hot fire,
and the room warm, while X thew on
a flood of gaslight, which made the
room bnliant, indeed. lie examined
my surgical and dissecting instru
ments. and his eyes glistened as he
remarked how he : should . like an
opportunity of using them, and
expressed my regrets that 1 had
not a subject to place at his disposal.
He then told me had an original
plan for testing the strength of the
human heart and its highest degree
of pulsation, and if X would lie
down upon the dissecting-table he
wpuldpracticaly demonstrate it to
me. lie said it would be best to
remove my clothing to the waist, so
X striped them off and laid down
rxpon .the table. He then went to
my neaa aea leaned over me, and
in a moment, before 1 was aware o
nis purpose, ne nad my arms
pinioned back with a rope that he
had evidently, taken out of his pock
et. with slip-noose all prepared. As
he bound me more firmly, he told
f tne that if I made a noise he would
stab me to the heart. He then
went to my feet and bound them
L firmly, and I had an opportunity o:
lDOKin? into nis tace: msanirv
gleamed from his eyes; I saw that I
was in -; the power of a maniac.
Utterly helpless, I dared not make
a noise, knowing he would kill. mo
the moment did. My agony., o
suspense was awful. What was te
going to do? ' V ; '
He took up my dissecting mstra--
mente, and his eyes eleamedVrwith
fiendish delight. All hope died ia

How They Finally Got Married.
One long summer afternoon there
came to Mr. Davidson's the most
curious specimen of an old bachelor
the world ever heard of. He was
old, gray, -wrinkled and odd. He
hated bid women, especially old
maids, and was'nt afraid to Bay so.
He and Aunt 1'atty had it hot

gether; yet still became, and it
was noticed that Aunt Patty took
unusual pains with her dress when
ever he was expected.
One day the contest waged un
usually strong, and Aunt Patty left

A Hint to Young Men.
In 1854 a young gentleman regis
tered his name in the city of Louis
ville, Ky. He had a pretty good
wardrobe, such as young men usually
have, including a gold watch and
chain. He was in search of occupa
tion. At the expiration of two
weeks he took an inventory of his
personal effects :
"Out of work
an(l no business." He had a brief
interview with the proprietor of the
hotel. His trunk was left as securi-
ty for his board bill : he hypothe-
cated his watch for the loan of ten
dollars, and having kissed the tip
end of his coral fingers to a kind
and sympathetic landlord, he went
diving for the 'bottom.' He found
the 'bottom' on Water street, where
a steamer was being discharged of
cotton by Dutchmen, negroes and
Yankees. Having purcla?el a pair
ot heavy boots, a blue shirt and
overalls, he commenced rolling and

months he had a

red and twenty-five dollars per
month. Today this gentleman is
one of the largest business op-
eratora ia Bay street.
