DRY PLASTER & ALUM
DAMP PROOF SAFE.
MERCHANTS, MANUFACTURERS, CAPITALISTS,
and aU others having valuables to preserve, will
consult their own interests by the selection of a reliable
security, in place ol' one of doubtful character. To ena-1
ble them to decide understandingly, we world suggest |
the examination of a few facts we havo to present
Tue points required in tho fire-proof filling of a Safe,
may bo enumerated as follows :
1st. It must bc a slow conductor of heat
2d. It must hold a large quantity of water to vaporize
when attacked by Ure.
3d. It must be unchangeable until a moro than ordi?
nary degree of heat is applied. In this consists ono of
tho chief merits pf using alum.
4th. It must be of such consistency that lt will neith?
er escape thrown small leaks, nor crack into fragments
when exposed to violent heat cr to severe concussions
8th. lt should not oxidize or rust the iron frame, aa
all wet mixtures, such as plaster mixed with water, are
ao well known to do.
Cth. It should not communicate dampness to tho in?
terior chamber, and thereby mould books, impair parch?
ment and other valuables.
7th. Its value in all tho above conditions should not
be impaired I j agc and reasonable usage.
In every Safe that is thoroughly fire-proof, there must
be something to generate steam.
Heretofore we havo used Plaster of Paris, mixed with
?water, for this purpose.
Tho objections to using water in the niling of Safes
It renders thc Safe very damp, thereby often ruining
papers by loosening seals, kc.
It soon corrodes thc iron of thc Safe, and rusts holes
through which tho filling oozes out.
By the evaporation of tho water thc Safe soon becomes |
These objections we have entirely obviated in our
present Safe, as our filling ls as dry as gunpowder, and
when tho fire takes placo, tho steam is generated by the
melting of the alum.
WE WOULD CALL SPECIAL ATTENTION TO
HARM'S PATENT EMERY IRON
Marvin's Patent Combination Lock.
THIS IRON IS MADE BY SPREADING EMERY BE?
TWEEN plates of heavy Boiler Iron, and then rolling
them, thus forming one solid plate with Emery flrmlv
imbedded in thc centre
AB Emery is tho HARDEST substance known, next to
the Diamond, it is perfectly impossible to drill a plato of
Iron of this character.
Theso Burglar-proof Safes are secured with Marvin's
Now Combination Lock, which, for its simplicity and
ease of operation, is unequalled by any Lock ever
Wo would refer to Marvin's Banker's Circular for
moro full description of their Emery Iron and Combi,
Their experience of nearly twenty-five years in the
manufacture of Safes and Locks, enables them to com?
bine aU the good qualities of Safes which have been
made during that time, without tho defect" of any. We
know that they are not equalled by any other Sate manu?
factured, and only ask an examination of them, when
vro will prove it to the satisfaction of any one.
Within a few years past. Cast Iron Safes, called
CHILLED IRON, have been made, and represented as
being IMPENETRABLE. It would well repay those
who are interested to examine the merits of these

BEAD WHO SAYS SO.
FROM THE HON. THOMAS B.TLORENCE.
WASHINGTON, January 1,1864.
Gentlemen:-Having stated it verbally to you, I have
no hesitation in writing tho fact, that I experienced
marked benefit from your Hoofland's German Bitters.
During a long ami tedious session of Congress, pressing
and onerous duties nearly prostrated mc. A kind friend
suggested the uso of the preparation I have named. 1
took his advice, and tho result was improvement o?
health, renewed energy, and that particular relief I so
much needed and obtained. Others may be similarly
advantaged, if they desire to be.
Truly your friend, THOMAS B. FLORENCE.
From Rev. W. D. Seigfried, Pastor of Twelfth] Baptist
PHILADELPHIA, December 20, 1863.-Messrs. Jones &
Evans-Gentlemen:-I have recently been laboring un?
der the distressing effects of indigestion, accompanied
by a prostration of tho nervous system. Numerous
remedies were recommended by friends and somo ol
them tested, but without relief. Your Hoofland's Ger?
man Bitters were recommended by persons who had
tried them, and whose favorable mention of tho Bitters
Induced mc also to try thom. I must confess that I had
an aversion to patent medicines, from the "thousand
and one" quack "Bitters," whose only aim seems to be
to palm off sweetened and drugged liquor upon the com?
munity, In a sly way; and tho tendency of which, I
fear, is to make many a confirmed drunkard. Upon
learning that yours was really a medicinal preparation,
I took it with happy effect. Its action not only upon
tho stomach but upon the nervous system, was prompt
and gratifying. I feel that I have derived great and per?
manent benefit from the use of a few bottles. Very res?
pectfully yours. W. D. 8EIGFRIED,
