Not a Hospital, but a pleasant Remedial Home, organized with A FULL STAFF OF EIGHTEEN PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS, And exclusively devoted to the treatment of all Chronic Diseases. This Jmnosing Establishment was designed and erected to accommodate the large number of invalids who visit Buffalo from every j*tatc and Terri lory, as well as from many foreign lands, that they may avail themselves of the professional services of tho Staff of skilled specialists in medicine and surgery that compose the Faculty of this widely-celebrated institution. NOT ALWAYS NECESSARY TO SEE PATIENTS. By our original system of diagnosis, we can treat many chronic diseases just as successfully without os with a personal con sultation. While we are always glad to see our patients, nnd become acquainted with them, show them our institutions, and familiarize them with our system of treatment, yet we have not seen one person in flve hundred whom we have cured. The per fect accuracy with which scientists are enabled to deduce the most minute particulars in their several departments, appears almost miraculous, if we view it in the light of the early ages. Take, for example, the elmtu-iuaguuiic telegraph, the greatest invention of the age. Is it not a marvelous degree of accuracy which enables an operator to exactly locate a fracture in a sub marine cable nearly three thousand n>!les long? Our venerable ** clerk of the weather " has become so thoroughly familiar with the most wayward elements of nature that he can accurately predict their movements. Hay can ait in Washington ami foretell what tho weather will be in Florida or New York as well as if several hundred mill's did not intervene between him and tho places named. And so in all departments of modern science, what is required is the knowledge of certain • signs. From these scientists deduce accurate con SI6NS OF elusions regardless of distance. So, also, <n modi JJ cal science, diseases have certain unmistakable meCKC signs, or symptoms, and by reason of this fact, we UIvLhom have been enabled to originate and perfect a sys tern of determining, with the greatest accuracy, the nature of chronic diseases, without 6ccing and personally examining our patients. In recognizing diseases without a personal examination of the patient, we claim to possess no miraculous powers. We obtain our knowledge of the patient's disease by the practical application, to the practice of medi cine, of well-established principles of modern science. And it is to the accuracy with which this system lias endowed us that we owe our almost world-wide reputation of skillfully treating fingering or chronic affections. This system of practice, and the marvelous success which has been attained through it. demonstrate the fact that diseases display certain phenomena, which, N ?<g sub jected to scientific analysis, furnish abundant ■ and unmistakable data, to guide the judgment l— of the skillful practitioner aright in determining the nature of diseased conditions. The most ample resources Ibr treating lingering or chronic diseases, and the greatest skill, are thus placed within the easy reach of every invalid, however distant he or she may reside from the physicians making the treat merit, of such affections a specialty.
