LONDON
CONDUCTED BY MRS. J. BAKEWELL, M.R.C.P.
IN
N MRS. BAKEWELL'S Establishment, every effort is made to keep

pace with the improved Educational plans of the present day. The minds of the Pupils are subjected to that course of discipline which invigorates and develops, without overtasking the intellectual powers. Whilst the great results of Education are not supposed to be attainable without labour on the part of both Tutors and Pupils, expedients are adopted by which the acquisition of knowledge may be divested of some of its difficulties, and by which the process of mental training may be rendered a source of pleasure, as well as of improvement.

The general regulations and duties of the Establishment are under 'the immediate superintendence of the Rev. J. BAKEWELL and Mrs. BAKEWELL, who fully devote their time to the work of Tuition. PROFESSORS of first-rate excellence in their respective departments are also in regular attendance.

THE RELIGIOUS TRAINING is on strictly Evangelical principles..

The School will re-open on the 28th of July. Prospectuses of Terms will be forwarded on application.

It affords us pleasure to observe the goodly array of our medical brethren who have borne testimony in favour of the above useful invention, than which we conceive nothing can be more desirable or complete.'-Editor of the Medical Circular.'

An invention is now before the public that is exciting quite a sensation. We are convinced not only that the invention is valuable one, but that it is incumbent upon all who would enjoy bealth, whilst preserving the beauty of their person, to adopt this Bodice.'-Editor of Kidd's Oron Journal.'

'HESE unique inventions combine FIRMNESS with ELASTICITY; they

fasten easily in front, fit closely, and retain the original symmetry of their adjustment. Their beautiful resilient action, elegant appearance, and anatomical correctness, lvave won for them the highest admiration. They are judiciously adapted to every varying condition of the female form. "Ladies in health, convalescents, and invalids wear them with equal satisfaction; and once having experienced the comfort and advantages they ensure, will not return to the ordinary stays and their attendant evils.

The oblique transverse resilients have each a distinct action in accordance with muscular movement; and are variable in number, size, and position, as individual configura. tion may require. Under the open transverse-work quilted silk, fine flannel, or coutil, is inserted at the option of the wearer, preventing chilliness in the back, and promoting the general health. The additional resilients in the lower part of the front are given in the Corsaletto only.

Purification of the Blood by the Vegetable Universal Medicines discovered by JAMES MORISON, the Hygeist.

People of Europe :

The foregoing Engraving of the Veins ought to convince you that the human frame should be treated in disease as a whole, and not piecemeal, as if it were disjointed machinery. Here lies the great difference between Hygeists and Doctors. Doctors, by their organic theory, contend that diseases should be treated locally, independently of the blood. Hygeists deny this, contending that in all cases of disease or sickness it is the blood which is really the suffering principle, and that therefore the only thing required to cure is a medicine which may purify the stream of life. On this question the happiness and well

being of Millions depend. This Plate is taken from Dick's Christian

Philosophery
