Compound Vapor Baths have no parallel in ancien or mod-rn times. In them you find concentrated all the qualities contained in the best methods of bathing known to science. Supplemented by nature's remedies wnich permeate the entire system by absorption, absolutely destroying the germs of disease, which otherwise might lesult 10 consequences the most disastrous to human health and life. By so doing the Compound Vapor assists nature to throw of) any disease that flesh is heir to if taken in season. Fevers.

Sciatic and Inflammatory Rheumatism, Faralysis, Dropsy, Diabetis, Bright's Disease, and all derangements of the Kidneys and Urinary Orgaus, Spinal difficulties, Sick Headache, Neuralgia, Asthma, Bronchitis, Varicose Veins, Scrofula, Salt Kheum, Eczema, Erysipelas, Ivy Poison, Malarial, mercurial and specific BI.kkI Poison, in all its tonus, succumb to this treatment. If you take cold, feel symptons of Fever, Pneumonia or La Grippe commg on, don't forget to come and take a Vapor Bath, and go on with your vocation as though nothing had happened. Funing and bathing by the Anidrosis Baths disinfects and vitalizes the human organism, as thousands of happy witnesses now gratefully swear. Suicides and confinement at insane asylums become almost a thing of the past under this soothing treatment. All irritable, obstructive elements must leave blood and tissues under this treatment.

Sleepless, irritable peevish conditions which unfit the human system for mental efforts, are relieved by clearing the blood and tissues of elements which induce it. No community should be without this practice. Rheumatics may well rejoice over this sure way out of misery. Absorb dropsy and tumors, starve the cancers, ulcers and abscesses by clearing the system of the poisonous supplies which feed them. Bath rooms, No.
