THE HUMAN BODY COMPARED TO A TREE,
Showing therefore that it should be treated as a WHOLE!
Veins of the Human Body, showing that we are like a Tree.
Circulation of the Blood discovered by Harvey.
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
Philosopher,' pages 163-5.

STAY OR CORSET
BEFORE THE PUBLIC.
It affords us pleasure to observe the goodly array of our medical hrethren 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 a valuable one, but that it is incumbent upon all who would enjoy health, whilst preserving the beauty of their person, to adopt this Bodice.' - Editor of Kidd's Own Journal.' THE "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, have 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 configuration 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.
