A't ten o'clock,'therefore, the lni.iu.li  was lowered,

As a general hygienic measure  its efficiency can scarcely be over-estimated." ,       "    i  Those who havo boon patients at Dr.  Pierce's Invalids',IIotei, ln ](ufTalp,_S.y.,  highly commend this wonderfully equipped Sanitarium, whore tho above mentioned electric machine.-, high-frequency  current, and other most modern and up-  to-dato apparatus aro used for the cure  of chronic diseases. Tho treatment of  the chronic diseases that aro peculiar to  women havo for many voars been a largo  factor in tho cures affected at the Invalids' Hotel and Surjricai Institute.  In erecting tho Invalids' Hotel, Dr. R.  V. Pierce's idea was to make it a genuine  home, not a hospital. , Such cases as rupture, hydrocele and varicocele are usually  cured in'ten clays, and the patient is able  lo return home. Tho terms aro modern to  :*.-.d the rates at th.* Invalids' Hotel comparatively ,'_.-". I-i tho c-v.-linination and  treatment of .patients the practice is  divided into specialties. Each member of  the Faculty, although "educated to prac-,  tice in'all,departments of medicine and  surgery, is here assigned to a special department only, toivvliich he devotes his '  entire time, study and attention. Ndt  only is superior skill thus,attained, but  also rapidity and accuracy in ihe diagno-,  sis of disease. * ,-   ���  Specialists connected with this-Institute at Buffalo, are enabled to accurately  determine the nature of many chronic  diseases without'seeing and personally'  ex:n.niining their patients. iTlils method  of treating patients at a distai.ee, by mail.s  ,has been \so successful that there is '  scarcely a city or a village in the United"  States tliat is not represented by ono or  more ease;- upon the records of practico  at'the Invalids' Howl and Surgical Institute. Such rare cases as cannot bo  treated in this way, which require surgical operations or circful after-treatment,  or electrical thSV.'.pculics, receive tiie .*-er-  vices cf tlie 'most skillful specialists at  , the Institution. '    ���  In medicine there has b->en rapid'progress during recent years,,Dr. Pierce has  kept up with the times by continually improving his laboratory by skilled chemists,  and exorcising euro "that the ingredients  entering into his well-known mcdicino_i  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription as well  as thi!"l.oMen Medical Discovery"are extracted from the best variety of native  medicinal roots. Those are gathered vv ith  great care and at tho proper season of tho  year, so that their medicinal properties  may be most reliable.  These extracts aro then made solublo  in pure triple refined glv cerine and bol tied  in a iugienic and *-eicntific manner. Thus  the World's Dispensary as established hy  Dr. Pierco is supphcd'with every known  apparatus and means of cure, for its aim  is to avoid surgical operations whenever  possible. ���    *  Great caro is exercised not to over encourage those who consult the specialists  of this institutiou that no false hopes  may bo ratMxl.  Many thousands are annually treated  both through correspondence and at tins  'Institute.
