The Abomination of Desolation.
A correspondent of the Cologne Gazette
gives * graphic account of the state of the
enrirons of Paris, only two months agr
so smiling and luxurious. "After you
leave Brie,” he writes, "you don't see a
creature but Prussian soldiers. In every
direction the French have blown up the
bridges, dug ditches across the roads, and
cut down the poplars which bordered
them, that they might become obstacles in
the way.
The superb bridge which spanned the
Seine at Villeneuve is now replaced by
Prussian pontoons. Villcnouv'e itself is
completely denuded of inhabitants. Not
even a cat or dog is to be seen ; absolute
desolatfon reigns everywhere. The charm
ing villas are now barracks. Common sol
diers lie asleep on sofas upholstered in
crimson velvet, which already is utterly
spoilt. Prussian dragoons and light cav
alrymen take their ease in the deserted
boudoirs of lovely Parisiennes, now per
haps almost destitute iu foreign lands.—
Libraries become harness rooms, fires are
lit with objets Wart and kept up with
orange trees from the splendid conserva
tories.
How the country people of this part of
France will keep body and soul together a
few weeks henco is a problem far beyond
my powers to solve. Sahara itself will
not be more destitute of the means of sus
tenance.”

At Ao. 41, Perham Street,
In Rear of Court House,
On TUESDAY, October 4th,
Having bought tlie Right to the same for
the city.
This Mode of Treatment, which is being
adopted by a large number of the Medical Profes
sion, has become quite popular in almost every
State of the Union. It lias been examined by thou
sands of Physicians, of all schools of medicine, and
there has not been one dissenting voice to the
correctness of the principle; all acknowledge that
it Jills a vacuum in the Science of Medicine. The
sick and afflicted are demanding it everywhere.
We have demonstrated the fact that Paralysis
Nervous Debility, Dyspepsia, Neuralgia,
Gout, Consumption in its incipient
stages, all Cancerous
A flections, Dropsy, Varicose Veins, Weak
Chests, Narrow Chests, Asthma,

Derangement of the Mind,
Prolapsus Uteri, Obstructed Menstruation, with
all their concomitant diseases, impotency,
and all kinds of weakness of the
Generative Organs,
CAN BE CURED. It brings a greater supply ol
blood and nutrition to all weak parts, thus creating
new life and tone, and health and strength in those
parts. It breaks up Congestion ami Inflammation
by equalizing the circulation throughout every part
of the system.

H T. HELMBOLD'S
CONCENTRATED
Fluid Extract Buchu.
THE
GREAT DIURETIC.
The Proprietor trusts that his Remedies, from the
fact of being advertised, may not be classed ns Pa
tent Medicines.
BUCHU, in one form or other, has been presented
by every educated Physician for more than
TWO HUNDRED YEARS.
II. T. HELMBOLD claims a superior mode of
extracting its virtues. The experiments were made
while engaged in the DRUG business in the city of
Philadelphia, nineteen years ago, prompted by the
alarming increase of diseases of the Bladder, Kid
neys, Gravel and Urinary Organs, exist! g in both
sexes. These diseases were justly attracting as
much attention as diseases of the Liver, or any j
other vital organs of the body. Upon the sound and
healthy condition of these important organs, the
healthy and harmonious action of the nervous sys
tem and Liver, and consequently the happiness of
the entire human family, depends. That Buchu
should act upon both Liver and Kidneys, to pre
pare it so that it would retain its strength and active
principle, was his aim. it must not be made, as
housekeepers make tea, by boiling. It is a delicate
Leaf, and its active principle would be destroyed
by such a process. It must be prepared in VACUO
and from the Long-leaf, tresh and carefully se
lected.
THE SUPERIORITY OF MY MODE OF PRE
PA RATION BEING ACKNOWLEDGED, 1 now
ship even to the point (CAPE OF GOOD HOPE),
where the leaves are gathered. large quantities of
MY FLUID EXTRACT.
IN FACT* T11E ARTICLE STANDS PREEMI
NENT. AND KNOWN IN ALL PARTS OF THE
WORLD.
The first and most important object was to offer
to the afflicted a remedy that was perfectly safe,
and could be taken by adults and children. Igno
rant persons, who pay no attention to dose, direc.
tion, or advice, might reason, “That if a teaspoon
ful, taken occasionally, did good, two would do
better, and perhaps a bottle would cure in a day.”
Many have broken down their health by dissipa
tion. and on his principle; but they had been years
in doing so.
What I would have understood is, that no injury
can arise from its use. It is as safe as any article
of foot!; but patients must not expect any medicine
to rebuild a wrecked or shattered constitution in a
lew days.
This truth is so self-evident that it would seem
unnecessary to repeat it, were it not for the fact that
thousands of persons w ho are intelligent in all other
matters, seem to think unreasonably, that a cura
tive agent must exhibit its specific effects immedi
ately, when the fact is, that time is ollen an impor
tant element in the progress of a safe and thorough
cure, even when the medicine is working the best
results. These same persons would expend HUN
DREDS, yes, THOUSANDS of DOLLARS, in
articles of LUXURY and DISSIPATION, and think
less of it than they would of FIFTY DOLLARS in
medicine to rebuild a IIROKEN DOWN and WORN
OUT CONSTITUTION.
Notwithstanding the number of years I have been
engaged in business, there may be those located at
a dLtance that may not be aware of ull the facts,
and would like to be satisfied on all the points.
Having been educated a druggist, I append the fol
lowing
From the Largest Manufac
turing Chemist in
the World.
“I am acquainted with Mr. If. T. Ilelmbold; he
occupied the Drug Store opposite my residence,
and was successful in conducting the business
where others had not been equally so belore him.
I have been favorably impressed with hi» charac
ter and enterprise.”
WILLI A M W EIG HTMAN,
Firm of Powers A Wcightnian, Manufacturing
Chemists, Ninth and Drown Streets, Philadel
phia, Nov. 15, 1854.
I propose to give evidence that this Remedy is
not a patent medicine. The objection which gener
ally lies against all discoveries and inventions in
medicine is “publicity.” If somebody should dis
cover a remedy to prolong life, or an infallible cure
for cholera or consumption, what a mon?*ter would
he be to withhold his knowledge! We have yet to
learn from what chapter or verse in Scripture to
quote, “that may not heal others of their fellow men
of any disease.”
Nor have w e asked Pickwicks, affected prudes,
or, in short, men w ho are posse-sed of every kind
of sense but common sense, and ull kinds of opin
ions hut their own. The Bucbu is a good thing. It
has hundreds of thousands of living w itnesses to
attest its virtues and commend it. It is the preju
dice of bigots and the envy of “Quacks.**

with one bottle he passed a gravel that weighs eight
grains, which w e now have on exhibition in our

THANKS TO MR. II ELM BOLD.
Uiuakd, Pa., March 81,18fift.
Editor Cosmopolite:—! desire, as an unsolici
ted tribute to the merits of Hklmhold’s Ill'uiiu,
and for the benefit of those similarly afflicted as
myself, to say that after consulting many eminent
physicians and trying nearly all the best advertised
remedies, in the vain hope of finding relief from
aggravated kidney and bladder diseases, from
which 1 have suffered excessively for many years,
good fortune finally suggested to me II elm hold's
Bl’CHU, which I commenced using with little faith,
and no apparent beneficial effects for uboul a
month. At the expiration of that time, however, I
thought I commenced to experience slight relief,
which encouraged me to persevere in its use. and
now at the expiration of four months, although I
am an infirm old man, nearly seventy-eight years
of age, and consequently medicines cannot be ex
pected to favorably affect me as they otherwise
would, I have found such unspeakable rebel and
permanent benefit from Mr. Hclmbold’s valuable
discovery, that 1 feel 1 ought to publicly record the
fact, as an acknowledgment to him, and a valuable
suggestion to the public. Yours respectfully,

think there is any form or preparation of it 1 have not
used, or kuown to be used, iu the various diseases
where sueh medical patent would be indicated.
You are aware, as well as myself, that it has been
extensively employed in the various diseases of the
BlaUder and kidneys, and the reputation it has ac
quired, in my judgment, is warranted by the facts.
I have seen and used, as before staled, every form
of Buchu—the powdered leaves, tincture fluid ex
tracts—and 1 am not cognizant of anv preparation
of that plant at all equal to yours. l'w elve years’
experience ought, 1 think, to give me the right to
judge of its merits, and, without prejudice or par
tiality. I give you precedence over all others.
1 value your Buchu for its effect on patients. 1
have cured with it, and seen cured with it, more
diseases of the bladder and kidneys than 1 have
ever seen cured with any other buchu or any other
proprietary compound of whatever name.
Respectfully yours, Ac.,

A Case of Twenty Years’
Standing.
Philadelphia, Pa., June 25,1867.
II. T. Helmbold, Druggist—Dear Sir: I have
been a sufferer for upwards of twenty years w ith
gravel, bladder and kidney affections, during which
time I have used various medicinal preparations
and been under the treatment of the most euuneuj
physicians, experiencing but little relief.
j'luving seeu your preparations extensively ad
vertised. 1 consulted my family phy&icau in regard
to using your Extract Buchu.
1 did this because 1 had used aU kinds of adver
tised remedies and had found them w orthless, and
seine quite injurious; in fact, 1 despaired of ever
getting well, and determined to use no remedies
hereafter unless I knew of the ingredieuts. It was
this that prompted me to use your remedy. As you
advertised that it was composed of buchu, cubebs
and juniper berries, it occurred to me and my phys
ician as an excellent combination ; and with his ad
vice, alter an examination of the article and con
sulting again with the druggist, J concluded to try
it. 1 commenced to use it about eight mouths ago,
at which time I was confined to my room.
From the first bottle I was astonished at the ben
eficial effect, and alter using it three w'eeks was
able to walk out. 1 felt much like writing to you a
full statement of my case at the time, but thought
iny improvement might only be temporary, and
therefore concluded to defer, and see it it would
effect a perfect cure, knowing then it would be ol
greater value to you and more satisfactory to me.
1 um now able to report that a cure is effected,
after using the remedy for five months.
I have not used any now for three months, and
leel as well in all respects as 1 ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant taste
and odor, a nice tonic and in vigorator of the system.
I do not mean to be without it whenever occasion
may require its use in such affections.
