*What the Xt. Lebanon Shakers
Found--Incdont in the His.
, tory c,fa (ul;'t Conim unity. '
The Mount Lebanon (New
York) Shakers are a quiet com
munity, secluded from the fret
and worry of the outside world.
They are widely known, how
ever, for their strict honor and
probity in business.
The Shakers believe that na
ture has a remedy for every. dis
ease. A few have been found
the rest are as yet unknown.
Many were discovered by acci
dent. Others caine to light as
the result of patient experiment
Nervous Dyspepsia is a com
paratively new <isease, growing
out of the conditions of modern
life. It is a joint affection, of
the digestive organs and of the
nervous Eysten. These two
were formcrly treated as sepa
rate ailents, and it was left
for the clear-sighted Shakers
to prove that the basis of this
terrnble and often fatal compli
cation lies chiefly in the disord
ered and depraved functions of
digcstion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus:-"If we can in
duce the stomach to do its
work, and stimulate the excre
tive organm to drive out of the
body the poisonous waste mat
ters which rcnaih after the life
giving lenents of the food
hiavo been absorlbe(l, we shall
have conquered Nervous Dys
pepsia and Nervous Exhaust
ion. And they were right.
Knowing the infallible power
of Shaker Extract (Seigel's
Syrup) in less complicated
though s i m i1 a r diseases,
they resolved to -Lst it fully
in this. To leave no ground
for dIoubt they prescribed the
remedly in huaidrcd.> of cases
which hr.d been pronounced in
curable- -with perfect success
in every instaml( ,mere their
directions as to living and diet
were GCrwpulouly 'J iollowed.
Nervous iDywM-pa and Ex
haustion is a pecularly Ameri
can disease. To a greater or
less extent half the people of
this country suffer from it
both sexes and all ages. In no,
country in t lie world are there'
so many insane ay'lums filled
to overflowing, all resulting
from this alarming disease. Its
leading sympton .3 are these:
Frequent or continual head
ache; a dull pain at the base
of the b)rain; bad breath; nau
scous eructations; the .rising
of sour and pungent fluids to
the throat; a sense of oppress
ion and faintness at the pit of
the stomach ; flatulence; wake
fulness and loss of eleep; dis
gust with food even when
weak from the need of it; sticl;y
or slimy matter on the teeth or
in thme mouth, especially on ris
ing in tihe morning; furred and
coated toug:ue; dull eyes; cold
hands and~ feet; constipation;
dry or rough skin ; inability to
fix the mind on any laibor call
ing for continuous attention;
and olppressivo and sad fore
bodings and fear3.
All this terrible group
Shaker 1/xtract (Seigel s
Syrup) removes by its pos
itive, powerful, direct yet
painless and gentle action upon
the functions of digestion and
assimilation. Those elements
of the food that build up and
strengthen thme system are sent
upon their mission, while all
waste matters (the ashes of life's
fire) which unremnoved,-'poison
and kill, are ex-telled from the
body th1roug~h the bowvels, kid
neys and 'skin. Thme weak and
prostrated ner'ves are quieted,
toned and icd by the purified
blood. As the result, health,
with its enjoyments, blessings
and power, returns to the suf
ferer who had, perhaps, aband
oned all hope of ever seeing

does this say for whiskey ? It ay
plainly that it Is unruly and mustb

porte*r gves tile following statement of
D)r.-C. Francoise, the wvell known- vet
erinary surgeon of that city, in reference
to a case of blindness. 'rie Doctor says:
"Four years ago last spring, lit.tle
SWillie, tile four year-old soni of Mir. Peter
DeWitt, a relative of mine, residing at
'that time at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, wvas
.taken wvithm the measles. Theia disease
struck in on him, and the poor.
ls, LITTvLE FELLOW WAS LEFT BLIND.
ur "Distingumishedl phlysieians in Milwan
kee and Chicago were consulted, and
on said that nothing could be none for im,
iv and that, blinded thius early, he w~ould
continue sightless durhn hi entire life.
mn- Wile at Hot SprIngs Mir. DeWitt had
ry h)eardl thle S. S. S. remedy, manufac
uer tured at Atlanta, spoken of very highly.
H-ow it happened I don't kcnow, for S. ,.
Lve S. is not guaranteedl to cure blindness;
but by some happy chance it was do
.cded to test its eflcacny in Willie's ease.
By the time he had taken a bottle and
a hlalf his eyes had so far recovered that
for lhe could( play outo of doors. A fter taking
,four bottles hie was completely Cured,
ils eyes st'emed perfectly sound, aund
have continued so ever since."
"hu"ere, Willie, Willie, come here"
shouted the doctor suddenly, to an ac
tive little boy dressed in knickerbockers,
who was plyig in thle street. "This is
Willie DeWitt. Is father used to be
a railroadl condumctor, but lie Is out WVest
now on business, andl Willie is staying
with tie until lie gets back, Hie goes to
the East I venue school every day, and
never has the least trouble with his eye
a sight. See, his eyes look as well as
yours or mine."
