The critics and the press throughout this country and England highly commend

“The Science of Life,

or Self-Preservation.




A Young, middle aged and old. It contains 370 pages, 12mo., 125 invaluable prescriptions for acute and chronic diseases, bound in substantial embossed French muslin, full gilt. It treats scientifically, exhaustively and in a masterly manner upon Exhausted Vitality, Nervous and Physical Debility, the Errors of Youth, Varicocele, Atrophy (wasting) and all Diseases and weaknesses of Man, from whatever arising. New edition, revised and enlarged. Price only $1 by mail, sealed.

'The Science of Life, or Self Preservation,' is a Medical Treatise of rare merit and great value, from the pen of a distinguished author and famous medical practitioner and Nervo Specialist. It is pre-eminently a book for every man. It is published by the reliable, time-honored and far-famed Peabody Medical Institute, which is of itself a guarantee of excellence and high character. It would be better for the individual and the State if all were conversant with the truisms so tersely set forth in this noble work. It is not of that cheap order of abominable trash sent broadcast by irresponsible parties and purchased to gratify coarse tastes, but a work of such intrinsic value as cannot be measured by dollars and cents, coming as it does from a source eminently trustworthy and reliable, containing facts which should be known facts which must be known." -Medical Review.

“The Peabody Medical Institute has many wouldbe imitators, but no equals."Boston Herald.
