A CASE FOR THE COLD-WATER CURE.

DOCTOR BULL. "Are you subject to these attacks?"

CAPTAIN SEMMES. "No, DOCTOR; this is the first of the kind. The fact is, heretofore I have been very careful to avoid exposure to any thing which might produce the slightest reaction."

DOCTOR BULL. "But, about this affair; how did it come on?"

CAPTAIN SEMMES. "Well, first I experienced a sort of Shooting in the Side, accompanied by Symptoms of Collapse, ,followed by a General Sinking, and a kind of Swimming Sensation."   .

DOCTOR BULL. " Yes, yes—exactly! I think I had slight symptoms of the disorder myself some years ago. It is known among the profession as Yankeephobia, for which Spirit of Cave-in is frequently used: but in your case, I should recommend building up—a little iron, and so forth. However, I will fix you up something which will make a man of you in no time."   -

it would be cured? How many lovers it has separated!!! How many friends forever parted! THE SUBJECT IS SO DELICATE, your nearest friend will not mention it; and you are yourself ignorant of the fact. To effect a radical cure, use the Balm as a tooth-wash night and morning.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN

of ancient times used honey to beautify their complexion; but the combination with palm-oil and other valuable ingredients makes it still more valuable.
