Y., in which he sets forth with considerable force and clearness his reasons tor devot- 1 ing his whole time and attention to a single depart ment of medicine-the treatment of lingering chrouic u diseases. The same article also takes up the subjects of diagnosis, methods of consultation and treatment t: etc., and will be found to contain many valuable bints to the invalid. Dr. Pierce is the author of a & W’ork which has already attained a large circulation— “1 he People’s Common Sense Medical Adviser”_ t< containing some nine hundred numerously illustrat ed pages, and devoted to medicine in all its branches c< a. work well calculated for the guidance and instruc tion pf the people at large, and which may be had for 51.50 (post-paid) by addressing the author. Dr Pierce has now been before the general public long enough to enable the formation of a careful estimate the efficiency of his treatment and his medicines a and the verdict, we are glad to know, lias been uni- fii irersally favorable to both. oc2» * myl2eod&wlw SPECIAL NOTICES.

Juvenile Temples for the State of Mass. __ Lawrence, Mass. DB. EO RING—Dear Sir, Having been at times seriously afflicted with that most tormenting of diseases, DYSPEPSIA, and having tried and lost faith in the thousand and one remedies prescribed for that disease, I almost despaired of ever being cured or even helped by any medicinal preparation. While in London, Eng , in 1873, and suffering intensely, I was induced to try Eoiiug’g Specific, by a lady friend, who brought it with her from the United States. Un like every other remedial agent its effect upon me was gratifying beyond expression—very soon I be gan to feel like a new person—my strength and vigor returned and every symptom ot the disease disappeared. I have given several bottles to my afflicted friends, and in every case beneficial results have followed its use. I have aa abiding faith in your Specific, and believe that it will cure ninety-nine cases out ot every hundred, and give relief to the other. Respectfully yours, FLORA W. BOWKER, Geu, Supt.
