Loring's Fat-Ten-U and Corpula Foods Cure

Nerve and Brain Exhaustion. Free Advice
from Loring & Co.'s Chicago or New York
Medical Department - Only Certain Cure for
Rupture - Best Truss Ever Devised.

Doctors now agree consumption is curable.

Three things, if taken together, will cure nearly every case in the first stages; the majority of cases more advanced; and a few of those far advanced.

The first is, fresh air; the second, proper food; the third, Scott's Emulsion of cod-liver oil with hypophosphites.

To be cured, you must not lose in weight, and, if thin, you must gain. Nothing equals Scott's Emulsion to keep you in good flesh. .

The long story in Lippincott's for Novem. ber is by Mrs. Burton Harrison, author of “The Anglomaniacs," "Sweet Bell Jangled,” etc., and should create a firm demand for the num. ber. There are no less than eleven short essays in the remaining twenty-seven pages of the magazine.

- Henry Holt & Co. have ready " Elementary Botany," by George Francis Atkinson, of Cor. nell University, not intended to be memorized as a text-book, but to serve as a guide to practical work in studying the life processes of plants, and also a reference book for their classification.

- Holger Drachman, the celebrated Danish poet and painter, has arrived in America, intending to spend several years in travel and study. He purposes to oversee the translation of several of his works during that time. His rank as painter is almost higher than his rank ay author, in his own home at least.

-E. P. Dutton & Co. have just issued “Among the Forest People," a book of natural history for young people, by Clara Dillingham Pierson, author of“ Among the Meadow People," illustrated by F.C. Gordon, and “Perennials," a year-book for 1899, arranged from the writings of Phillips Brooks.

The Pacific Monthly is the title of a new ten cent magazine to be issued from Portland, Ore. The aim of the editors is to “make & magazine of education and progress. A special endeavor will be made to keep in touch with advanced thought in education, and all sub. jects that pertain to increase of knowledge and progress." The prospectus of the new magazine is very attractive.

Once more the memory of Edgar Allan Poe is to be honored by the people of the South. This time the memorial is a bust of the poet executed by Mr. George Julian Zolnay, of New York City, and destined to adorn the library of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Mr. Zolnay has just finished the bust in clay. It is over litesize and will be cast in bronze by a New York firm, and as soon as possible set up in the rotunda of the library of the university.

· Henry Stevens, Sons & Stiles, London, have just ready “The Anuals of the Voyages of the Brothers Nicolo and Antonio Zeno in the North Atlantic about the end of the fourteenth cen. tury and the claim founded thereon to a Venetian discovery of America," a criticism and an indictment by Fred W. Lucas, author of “ Appendiculæ Historicæ," and part editor of "The New Laws of the Indies." The Zeno story has been the subjeot of much discussion, and the present work is the outcome of a friendly difference of opinion between C. H. Coote, of the British Museum, and the writer. The work is illustrated by facsimiles and maps, and is issued in very sumptuous shape.

ROBERT FRAME, M. D. Dr. Robert Frame, Milford, Del., tested Loring's Fat-ten-O and Corpula pods and found them effectIve in many critical cases. Read his statement:

MILFORD, DEL., April 21, 1897. I have been in the practice of medicine nearly forty years, and have never met with a preparation that acts with such promptness and certainty as Loring's Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods. One patient who came under my care had had all the Doctors in the vicinity, who pronounced the case Kidney Disease and said that he could llve but a very short time, for there was no cure for him. I found the patient very poor and nervous; he could not sleep, could not walk, pains were excruciating. As soon as I put the patient on Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods he began to improve not only in strength, but also to fatten up and is now entirely recovered. I have tried Fat-TenU and Corpula in Consumption and wasting diseases, a cure being made in a short time after using them. They stimulate the appetite and the digestion, pro·mote assimilation and enter directly into the circuation. In all chronic and organic diseases, like Bright's disease, Consumption, Paralysis and Dispepsia, all diseases requiring a remedy to build up and strengthen, I prescribe Loring's Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods, and in all cases where a tissue builder is required. They cure nervous exhaustion. Any letters of inquiry, with stamp enclosed, will be promptly answered.

Yours sincerely, ROBERT FRAME, M. D. “As the young girl develops into the young woman she should be placed on the rock of safety," writes Esther Silliman, one of our mo t famous woman physicians. “That rock is regularity. The mother must point the way. If the daughter becomes weak and listless and takes no interest in the affairs of life, if her eyes become dulled, if she complains that hier clothing weighs her down, and of excruciating palns in her stomach after meals, the mother should arouse herself to her duty or expect to see the budding woman fade and die. Millions have gone this way to the grave, and thousands have been saved from premature death by those great regulators of woman Loring's Fat-Ten-U and Corpula Foods."

A CHEAP TRIP FOR THE SCHOOL.

Design embraces a government mail pouch suspended from a mail crane, finished with a pleasing color sketch at bottom of hanger. Size of calendar, 14 x 20 inches.

A. J. SMITH, Gen. Pass. and Ticket Agent, Cleveland, O.

Several years ago a large school in the State of New York chartered a steamship for the purpose of taking its pupils on a trip of obser. vation and study around the world. It was a good idea, but owing to a lack of funds the project fell through. Next to seeing things come seeing good pictures of them, and while not one school can take a collective trip any. where, any school can take a magic lantern trip around the world, or to any part of it at very slight trouble and expense. As a help in every branch of education, the perfected modern magic lantern is coming to the front and coming to stay. It is only after considerable experience with it that teachers realize how useful it is; it is a labor-saving contriv. ance of the most pronounced type; children who doze over the text-book and turn away from the teacher's well-meant explanations with vacant faces awake into enthusiastic attention the moment the lantern is produced to illustrate the lesson. How to obtain a lantern of the very best make, with cost, mode of using it and all other details, may be learned by writing to Messrs. J. B. Colt & Co., of New York, who are the authority in this phase of educational work.

An exceptional opportunity is offered all of our readers at this time, who may be contemplating the purchase of a Magic lantern outñt on account of their closing out their lantern department, because of the rapid development of their Acetyline Gas business.

Price, 30 Cents.

OUR

UR Little Folk's Primer,” is just received. I would say that I can scarcely

praise it too highly. It is a radical departure from the old-fashioned reader, and cannot fail to meet a long-felt want.

The points which must commend it to all are its beautiful half-tone reproductions of famous pictures, thus bringing real art into the realm of the child, its colored illustrations supplying a long-felt want, the novel introduction of the calendar, at once interesting and instructive, the combination of script and printing, thus familiarizing children with both, the use of number and science in connection with reading, the bright suggestions for busy work as shown in the stick-laying and drawing designs; the fact that each month's work is made to revolve about a central point, thus affording a means of new inspiration and interest.
