' " Mr, Peter Mallen, 212 W. Twenty-fourth street, New York, saya that he suffered six years-with rheumatism' and found no re lief until St. Jacobs Oil. the sovereign remedy, was applied, which cured him completely. EEVTEW OF A GREAT AND BETTEFICTENT wokk. i - . - : Two recognized epochs of human life have been completed since we began this work. It is meet that we make a halt, long enough at least to take note of the region over which we have journeyed, and. to examine the horizon jwhich opens up to us. 1 Twice seven years ago one of us started single-handed to inaugurate; and develop a new use; at once scientiful and practical, professional and commercial, business-like and beneflcient. They only who have tried it know the difficulties to be encoun tered in creating an entirely hew business and securing its recognized entrance into the rank and file of business. That we have done this gives us the right to speak. For eight years this single-handed work was prosecuted. The operator had a con viction that in the Compound Oxygen he found the mode of redeeming his fellow men from the sufferings of disease, more potent and benign than the world had ever seen. This inspired him with the courage to abandon a lucrative practice which he had been twelve years in building, and to overcome all obstacles in the way of realiz ing his dream of proving to the world that his conviction was securely founded. That this has been fully accomplished, thousands of people either cured or made richer in greatly improved health stand ready to testify. j Sixteen years ago the senior partner had his attention called to a few persons who were taking the Compound Oxygen. They declared that they were improving with satisfaction. He felt sure they were being stimulated; and that, consequently, they would soon show the effect ef all stimula tion, and retrogade below the point of health at which they began the treatment. By carefully watching the cases for sev eral months, "his prediction failed of veri fication in a single case. Ha then induced several of his own patient--ases which any physician would have considered very doubtful under any system of medication to try the effect of the Compound Oxy gen. With surprise he watched them making commendable speed ; healthward. He put members of his own family under treatment, and with like good results. All this provoked a conflict! in his mind. He had proof that in the Compound Oxy gen there was an agent that would cure many sick ones whose condition would baffle the medical skill of any physicians whom he knew. And many others whom he might cure in six or twelve months would get well in as many weeks under the action of that agent. I Now the question forced itself upon his mind and peremptorily demanded an an swer: "What are you gointr to do with thls.latter class of patients, who confide to your care the restoration of their health? As a faithful physician is it not your duty to take the surest and shortest way to se cure to them that for which they are pay ing your Well, what is the proposition? "Evidently, send such patients where you know they can be better served than they can be under your care and ministration. ' But that would be suicidal. "No, the pro- ?3rtion of such patientfl would be small." rue, but the public will not discriminate. They will see only that the doctor sends his patients elsewhere to be cured, and therefore, he lacks confidence in his medi cal skill. . "Well, there is one way out of the dilemma; get possession of the super ior curative agent and thus make peace with your professional conscience and Krove yourself a friend of suffering umanity." What, and be jeered by one's friends, and tabooed by one's professional brethren? "lhat appears to be about the price. But what is the alternative?" Result: He gives up bis hard-earned practice, secures at great price the knowledge of and the right to administer the Compound Oxygen in this city. s This included only the office treatment in Philadelphia. Soon he was exercised by the fact that the operasion of an office business was very limited, j Something must be done to dispense the blessing far and wide. Accordingly, at no little ex pense, he hastened to make known to his professional brethren the virtues of Com pound Oxygen and to furnish them with outfits for administering it. As he ought to have known would be the case, Ins ef. forts excited ridicule and reproaches. Nothing daunted, he entered upon a long series of experiments, which resulted in the conviction that there was a much bet ter method of accomplishing the end in view than the one which had failed. Hence the widely known Home Treat ment. in tnis untried neid nekiaoored tor a year, meeting many failures in his expert ments, working hard at details, and creat ing a literature which the work absolutely required". On the last of June, ten years ago, the practability of the enterprise was demonstrated. JJut he had exhausted his resources, broken his health, and almost sacrificed his life. The ship was built and launched, but three years' struggle proved to him that he could not freight and man it. Six and a half years ago he found a man who could appreciate the value of the work in hand. Our united forces have fulfilled the brightest hopes of the pioneer, A new departure wastheorderof the day, The first and essential thincr to be done was tol let those who needed our curative agent know that we were in possession of it. Knowing tnat many fortunes have been sunk in advertising, we decided to put that part of the business into the hands of one whose skill and experience had been proven. It is enough to say that the methods which he adopted have revolu tionized important branches of advertis ing. From the outset we have dealt truthfully with the suffering sick, realizing that they at least had a right to demand such deal ing. We knew that we had a curative agent superior-to any other in the world. and, therefore, the simple truth about it would be the best credentials it could have; hence we were not tempted to invent tes timonials, nor to steal genuine ones, nor to romance on any. The growth of the business has been Ehenomenal. During the first year the usiness doubled each month. During the last four years we have recorded in our books, statements of diseeses, reports of progress, repeated advice and prescrip tions, of over twenty thousand persons. Much more could be said in proof of the success of our work as a commercial en terprise; but let this suffice. It is of much ?;reater importance to prove that our pro essional success has exceeded the other. What have we to show in this direc tion! During those fourteen years we have treated thirty thousand patients. Among these a large proportion had been sick for years. They had exhausted the skill of the best physicians of all schools, dif ferent sanitariums, various natural health ersorts, shops of nostrum mongers and months of hygienic traveling. In many of these cases it has cost more to remove the baleful effects of the-treatment prac ticed on them, than those of the original disease. How many of them have been desperate cases may be inferred from the fact that we have filled scores of orders- sent unconditionally in which the patient had passed beyond the reach of any rem edy on its arrival. And out of this un promising multitude, ninety per cent have been either cured or greatly benefitted. e have proved that a number of dis eases which by common consent have been assigned to the category of "incurables," no longer belong there. We have cured a number of cases of Bright's disease. Two of these cases were brothers, whose father, one brother and one sister had died of the same disease, We have treated four cases of Loco-motor ataxia, or progressive pa r aiysis. In all of these the progress of the disease has been arrested (which no sys tem of medication has ever been known to do), and the patients have made genu ine progress towards health. - We almost never fail to cure asthma even of fifteen years' standing unless the case has been spoiled by the use of narcotics; which served as palliatives, but constantlv ac gravated the disease. The same can be said of the "avprobrium medendi." hav fever. The cases of consumption con firmed phthisis which the Compound Ox ygen has cured can be counted by scores. We are confident that we make more gen uine cures of catarrh nasal laryngial, bronchial and pulmonary than all the catarrh specialists in the country. A distinguished member of the New York Bar, who appeared to be a wreck, both physically' and mentally, and who had settled up his worldly affairs, resumed his active . business after three months' treatment; and this business : he has suc cessfully followed for a year, i Mrs. Mary A. Iavermore, who had been disabled for nearly two years by a dangerous exhaust ion of the brain, has for a year and a half been prosecuting her professional work with more ease and energy than ever before. The Hon. W. D. Kelley, the Father of the National House of Repre sentatives, will tell any one that he owes the last ten years of, his life to Com pound Oxygen ; and it can hardly be disputed that during this period his labors have not been surpassed by those of any other member of Congress. Wil liam Penn Nixon, of the Chicago Inter Ocean, says that he owes his Mfe and some years of his active usefulness to the virtues of Compound Oxygen. The public know very well the unqualified testimony which Mr. T. S. Arthur has borne in favor of the Compound Oxygen as exhibited in his own case. But why multiply examples ? We have published many hundred statements in the patients own language of the effects of Compound Oxygen in almost every kind of disease. Now what of the future? Having ac complished what we have, and against such odds, our progress hence-forward should be broader, more successful and more beneflcient. As was to have been expected, proprietors of sanitariums and health resorts, whose business has been diverted from them by the popularity of the Compound Oxygen, try to show that our agent is inert. But until they can rationally acceunt for the thousands of wonderful cures effected by it, their ti rades are in vain. Of course there are and there will probably be more imitat ors of the Compound Oxygen. Some have already stolen our title, our litera ture, and even our testimonials. One of them having obtained from William Penn Nixon an opinion of Compound Oxygen in his own case, now publishes it as though Mr. Nixon was cured by his treat ment instead of ours I Some of those agents may be innocuous ; but we have a good reason to believe that many of them are positively injurious. They will have their day. But despite all factious opposition Com pound Oxygen must become increasingly popular, so long as it possesses the abil ity to effect such remarkable cures as now attest its merit. For full information regarding the treatment and its use, address Drs. Starkey & Palen, 1109 and 1111 Girard St., Philadelphia. All orders for the Compound Oxygen Home Treatment directed to H. E.

Te richer a man makes his food, the poorer he makes his appetite. If ; you feel dull, drowsy, debilitated, have sallow color of skin, or yellowish brown spots on face or body, frequent headache or dizziness, bad taste in mouth, internal heat or chills alternated with hot flushes, low spirits and gloomy forebodings irregular appetite, and tongue coated, you are suffering from "torpid liver," or "biliousness."
