HOW TO KEEP COOL
It Is Merely a Matter of Ureas, Die post

Cultivate placidity of mind and man
ner. This having been attained you
have something more valuable tL loose
and light clothing. Fussy people are
not only always hot themselves, but
make others hot. Don't drink too much
cold water, and drink not of liquor at
all. Eat sparingly and only such food
as can be digested without labor, Keep
the sun out of your rooms during the
day and throw them as wide open as
possible at night. Don't work harder
than necessary, and if possible begin
work very early in the day, so as to take
a rest after the sun has got high in the
heavens. It is to be taken for granted
that every one 'will wear the least
amount of clothing compatible with
decency and conventional form. But
beyond everything bo of gooa temper,
of cheerful mind and quiet d-pi utraent.

Always remember that your present

Therefore do all your vituperating "by

Before undertaking an argument always
make the strongest argument you possi

and be prepared to meet it. Remem
ber that the current of opinion is nearly
always determined by a very few men,
possibly not more than a dozen in each
precinct or township. Get them and
you have got the community. But if
you are smart enough to pick the right
men you are too smart to need this ad

Scrape the inside out of a large turnip,
leaving a thick wall all around. Fill the
cavity with earth and plant in it some

with slender cords and in a short time
the vines will twine around the strings
and the turnip sprouts that will grow
out below will turn upward and curl
gracefully around the base.

Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. O. 0. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day Is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Dr. J. F. Kinchklob,

I recommend it as superior to any prescription

Our physicians in the children's depart

medical supplies what is known as regular

merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

Late of LONDON, now of CHICAGO, with a Branch Office and Laboratory at HILLSDALE, MICTL,
Has Visited Southern Michigan for the past Year, and during these visits has examined and prescribed fori
hundreds, and effected some of the most Wonderful Cures ever made in the btate.

Examination Free to All.
Although the doctor Is in many cases
compelled to use expensive instruments
and chemicals in making analyses, micro
scopio and other scientific examinations,
yet ho makes no charges to anyone, believ
ing it to be a part of tho physician's duty
to ascertain tho patient's true condition
without expense to the sufferer. When
ever and wherever Dr. Humphrey decides
to locate a monthly visit crowds flock to
see bim. and no wonder, for by the first ex
amination, and often without asking a
question, he tells the invalid what the
trouble Is, and the prospect of a cure, and
most wonderful of all he values his first
Impression and first look at a patient more
than all else, und Dr. Humphrey is never
mistaken In his diagnosis in any chso.
The doctor's methods differ markedly
from the general practitioner in all re
spect. Following the plan of St. George's
Hoapital of London, lie registers every
psrtlculnr as to tho patient's physical con
dition and mental state. The condition of
each organ, locution of any and all dis
eased parts, and whether nympathetio or
organic, together with the amount and
nature of the disease. In this way tho en
tire amount of vital energies are rondily
computed and the restoring power of the
body measured against the force and en
ergy and destructive capabilities of the dis
ease. Thus knowing tho actual condition
rf .tin .iuuuoa snH tha ttfTonr. lf siumlfln
H medicines upon every structure of the
body, unlike most doctors, he is enabled to
say positively wnetner any given case is
curable or not, and can also give the ap
proximate time and expeuse of treatment,
and would here point out tho utter de
lusion cherished by many patients that
they ought to get well in a few days or
weeks, notwithstanding the fact that they
have suffered for years.
Dr. HOLMAN S. ODMPDREY
Cures alter all others Fail.
The doctor treata no acute diseases, but de
votes his whole time to the treatment of
chronio and long standing and surgical dis
eases; cases given up by other doctors and pro
nounced incurable, ho most desires to see. Dr.
Humphrey has had nearly 3,000 cures in the
state of Michigan, while his patients all told In
Minnesota, W isconsin, Illinois, Alabama, Ten
nessee, Georgia, Ohio and Indiana, have been
fully five times that number; nearly two-thirds
of these sufferers were given up as hopeless
invalids, some to be blind, some deaf, and
others a prey to scrofula, chronio kidney dis
ease, consumption, destructive female troubles.
Among others, hundreds of children bopeless
ly deformed. But behold how many or them
seo and bear, while nearly all are rapidly
The doctor is surrounded with tlu finest and
most extensive collection of instruments ever
imported to this country for examining and
treating all forms of chronio ailments of the
head, face, eye, ear, throat, chest, lungs, heart,
stomach, liver, spleen, kidneys, bowels, repro
ductive organs, urinarv organs, brain and
nervous system, paralysis, growths, joint dis
eases, piles, hip diseases, sciatica, skin diseases,
ulcers and every form of weakness of either
male or female.
The doctor s specific medicines go straight to
the diseased organ, and can be plainly felt at
work in tho diseased parts very shortly after
their use is beirun. Tlie.v ore pleasant to take,
mild bnt searching in action, yet agroo with
the most delicate lady or child, do not reduce
the strength, and can bo used while at the
usual occupation, as many patients still able
for hard work and closo attention to business
are often slowly, surely, yet unconsciously
dying, knowing themselves ill, yet deooived
Into a false security, t hey procrastinate and
put off the matter until tho case is rendered
incurable. The doctor earnestly request all
persons under treatment to write him often, as
advice may be necessary week after week in
order to push any given case on as rapidly as
possible, and a good common-sense statement
on the part of the patient by mall is the next
thing to a personal consultation.
Delays Are Dangerous.
Many diseases rre so deceptive that hundreds are ailing with
dangerous, yet insidious, maladies, all unconscious of their true
condition. They know they are not well, but are entirely Ignorant
of the deadly fangs fastening upon some vital organ, which must
sooner or later utterly destroy them unless rescued by a skilled
hand. Aro you afflicted? Your case may beeasily curable now. but
remember, every moment of neglect brings you nearer the day
when an incurable stago may supervene, when the most skillful
Fhysloian can render you no assistance. The present Is ours. The
uture may be too late.
A Life of Experience and Opportunity.
Dr. Humphrey's entire life has been devoted to the study and work
of his profession, and is rloh in practical experience in hospital, dis
pensary and private practice, and many of the truly wonderful
things he has seen and done, if told, would read more llko fiction than
sober truth. In the great hospitals of Kurope his opportunities have
been seoond to no living man's: not only so, but he has thoroughly
traveled, and his views of life, disease, eto.. are so broad and cosmo
politan that like a Gould or a Vanderbllt in railroad business, he
keeia watch of and overlooks tho entire medical world constantly.
The methods of McKenzie, Virohow, Pasteur, Koch, Urown-Sequard,
M. Bergeon, Fothergill, Bernard, etc, are as familiar to him as to
themselves, and while ever ready to grasp and retain a fact, he holds
fast to old friends tenaciously, and makes new ones cautiously, ex
perience having long since proven that one old truth well applied is
worth a dozen conjectures however plausible.
Facts for Men of All Ages.
By reason of false modesty the youth of our land are kept in
Ignorance of the serious results which certain solitary and Indiscreet
practices produce. These vlocs if persisted in eventually undermine
the constitution, induce nervous debility and early decay, organio
weakness, premature loss of the manly powers, involuntary loss of
vital fluids, general prostration, and oftentimes imbecility and
chronio epilepsy. Of all maladies afflicting mankind there is
probably none about whioh the common family doctor in general
practice knows so little, yet no sufferers need the attention of the
experienced specialist more than these, and here we hnvo to minister
to a diseased body, a diseased mind, and imaginations filled with
morbid desires and fearful apprehensions. Dr. Humphrey's un
paralleled success with these unfortunates arises not only from the
fact of tho most sclentiflo and specific medication known either In
this or any other oonntry, but also to the fact of the direct Influence
of his powerful will upon the peculiar mental depression alwavs
found in such cases, by which he Is enabled to Infuse a part of his
own energy Into their hopeless lives. Were not all such cases held
In the most sucrod confidence the doctor could print letters from
thousands of grateful patients who have boon cured, and are toiday
perfect men, physically and mentally. Disease or debility of the re
productive organs of either sex rapidly destroys the energies of both
body and mind, robs the step of Its elasticity, dims the bright eye,
pales the cheek, develops cowardice, and often destroys the brightest
intellect. Tho reproductive function is the mainspring of animal
life preserve it at all hazards.
Latest Discoveries and Improvements,
Dr. Humphrey Is the only physician who
has tia the special advantage of F.u.-opcan
hospital studies In microscopy of the blood
and tissues, who carries with him a full lino of
instruments and apparatus for making strict
ly sclentiflo examinations of tho various text
ures and secretions of the lody, as the urine,
blood, discharges of any kind, catarrhal se
cretions, etc., eto which examinations are now
considered indispensable to a correct diagnosis
In all forms of obscure ond chronio diseases.
As very few doctors outside the large cities are
thus prepared with costly outfit of microscopic
snd other essential instruments for making a
strictly first-class diagnosis in many cases, tho
afflicted would do well to call upon tho doctor
and get his opinion and learn whether the
doors of hope are yet open or forever closed
There comes a turning point In the eourso
ot every disease; this is especially true of all
progressive diseases, all or any of which are
curable up to a certain time; that is, until
such tissue change in somo important organ
or organs has taken place, as to affect the
proper function of said organ and finally
break down the actual structure itself.
Even In somo oases when this has happened
untumol tkill may stop tho destructive oper
ation, stay the inroads of the disease, and
f ive the patient a comfortable and useful
ifo. Other cases. If neglected, after passing
a certain stage, die in spite of all that skill
can do, I lenee it Is not only dangerous to do
lay, but of ttimes criminal, for most all of ns
live for those wo love, far more than for
ourselves, and it Is a crime against these to
neglect ourselves until premature death
closes the scene.
