THE PERRYSBURG f JOURNAL. Thb Heat. The speculations on the late hot weather are various. The infliction ap pears to have been uniform all over the coun try as far as our information extends. Mr. K. Meriam, whose speculations in the New York papers on the weather for some years back have been of genpral interest, publishes the following bulletin in the N. Y. Times: The temperature on Monday, July 3, at 4 P. M., was at 96 degrees north and 92 deg. south. On luesday, 4th, at 11 A. M., it was 97 degrees north and 96 degrees south. Wednesday, 5th. at 2 P. M., 100 deg. north and 96 deg. south. The heat had been con tinuous. My record of hourly observations, made without interruption for 8 consecutive years, furnishes but 18 days in the month of July, in that number of years, during which the temperature rose to and above 90 degrees, and the hottest of those days was the 13th of July, 184996 degrees. It will no doubt be ascertained that this heated term has been caused by tremors of the earth. MARRIED In Bowling Green, on the 9th inst., by Rev. P. C. Baldwin, Mr. Omar C. Carr and Miss Mary Freeman. The Medical Lighthouse. From the Boston Traveller. An Item for the Ladies. The ladies will find on page 335 of the "People's Medical Lighthouse,'' a most valuable table, in which is given the percentage of calcarious matter contained in most articles of food. This will prove invaluable to ihe ladies about to undergo the labors and dangers of parturi tion, for it has been satisfactorily ascertain ed that the bulk of the bones of the foetus, and the degree of their solidity or hardness, greatly depend upon the amount of calcari ous substance in the food of the mother du ring the period that she is enciente. By the use of proper food during gestation, it has been found, says Dr. Root, the author, that foetal ossification will be retarded, thereby rendering the deliverance much less painful, without affecting the vigor and health of the offspring. The same thing contains many hints upon subjects of a kindred character. which particularly commend it to the peru sal of females. As a family medical guide, the " People's Medical Lighthouse" may be placed first upon the list of medical publica tions now extant. In short, it has no superior. From the Providence (R. I.) Morning Mirror. A New and Valuable Work. We have just finished the perusal of a new and valu able work from the pen of the World's Phy sician, Dr. H. K. Root, who stands at the head of the medical profession in the United States, and it's our opinion there has never yet been a book of the kind published that will effect such an entire revolution in the system of treating diseases as the "People's Medical Lighthouse," which name it bears. Everything appertaining to physiological truths is so simplified "that the wayfaring man, though a fool, can not err lechnic alities, with all their ambiguities and incom prehensibles, are discarded, thus rendering it at once a work entertaining and benefiting to the laboring man as well as to the litera ry devotee. By its light, people can walk through the "journey of life'' without stum bling into avoidable diseases, which are so often contracted through the ignorance of nature s laws ; and by it, those who are pos sessed of dangerous or. painful ailments, can be safely piloted into the harbor of health. Ever? family should have it, and every mem ber should read it, as there is nothing con tained in it which can not be made service able to those in hoary years, as well as to the prattling child who has learned to read its primer. From the N. Y. National Democrat and Star. The People's Medical Lighthouse is the title of a very valuable book by Dr. 11. K. Root. The auhtor is well-known to the pub lic as the writer of a series of lectures on health, which have been very favorably re ceived by those for whose benefit they were prepared. This book is the result of intense study and close application on the part of the author for a long 6eries of ypars. His experience and success in the treatment of disease, must make this work an invaluable addition to the library of every family. DIED In this town, on Saturday, the 8th inst., of the cholera, Peter Laney, Esq., aged about 56 years. He had been a resident here for 15 years. Mrl L. was a man of warm impulses, philanthropic and benevolent in disposition ; he was always ready, to the full extent of his ability, to help the weak and distressed. When his friend, the late Deacon Stephen Williams, was attacked with the fatal disease, regardless of the consequences io nimsen, iiKe a neignuor ana a onrisuan, he promptly repaired to his assistance, where he remained until a few moments before he breathed for the last time ! For several years Mr. L. had been a licensed preacher of the Protestant Methodist church, and under his influence a small church had been formed here. He was an ardent lover of his coun try, and her free American institutions. COM. NOTICE. There will be no summer term of the Court of Common Pleas of Wood County.
