STOOPING OF THE SHOULDERS & CONTRACTION
OF THE CHEST, So injurious in Youth and Persons of all ages, effectually prevented, and gently removed by the occasional use of the IMPROVED ELASTIC CHEST EXPANDER, which is light, simple, easily employed, outwardly or invisibly, without any uncomfortable constraint or impediment to exercise. To Young Persons especially it is highly beneficial, immediately producing an evident Improvement in the Figure, and tending greatly to prevent the incursion of Pulmonary diseases; whilst to the Invalid, and those much en. gaged in sedentary pursuits, such as Reading or Studying, Working, Drawing or Music, it is found to be invaluable, as it opens the Chest and affords a great support to the back. It is made in Silk; and can be forwarded, per post, by Mr. ALFRED BINYON, No.

We should never iss, within the circ taste the stimulating flavour of cinnamon without being borne in thought to Ceylon, f the globe in which with its rich fields of rice; its beautiful copses, which furnish this exhilarating spice ; : area each particus and inland forests, peopled with countless thousands of apes, which make the early

But we must stop, for there is no end to the catalogue, and it is an exhibition of at the present edit: which we must not see too much

Now, as we have already said, not only might, but should, every commodity of every region transport us to that region, and make it render up to our enjoyment all that
it possesses ; but an Atlas of the World, which has been duly studied, brings the the whole in a pen whole before us the moment we glance at it; for in proportion to the extent of our
knowledge will be the extent of the reminiscence which this most powerful talisman
will conjure up. Truly, it is magic,-but it is magic of nature's exhibiting; the -wever ably select effect of infinite wisdom and goodness, without deception, without anything to'misn idea of the visite lead, and with everything to inform the head and soften the heart.

It is the same with every art which mankind have practised, and every science which p of the subject, is they have studied. If we are once in possession of the knowledge, and have had the
Atlas in juxtaposition with us in the study of it, the Atlas will not suffer us to forget h mark the true facer lt, but will faithfully bring to our recollection everything that has transpired.
On a great scale, there is no artificial memory half so good for this purpose as an Atlas of the World. It must, however, be borne in mind, that the Atlas is only the casket, and not the jewels of knowledge ; but then it is a casket so perfect, and so permanent in its arrangement, ( especially when accompanied by descriptive letterpress like “ Gilbert's Modern Atlas,”) that every jewel which can be put into it is found the very instant that we require it. Every family, therefore, should have an
Atlas of the World, as large and as good as their circumstances will admit, and, letter-press,"-besides the pleasure of its possession, it will insure them its value manifold in the in
