It is well-known fact that a considerable majority of the people in this country are addicted more or less to nervousness in one or more of its many forms ; and as nervousness is the direct cause of all mental ills, and the indirect cause of a great many physical ills, organic as well as functional, there are few things that would be more important than that of finding a method through which health for the nerves could be secured. 

How to cure this malady has long been a problem. Medicine as a rule avail but little, and the various forms of other therapeutic systems reach but a limited number. It is therefore that the discovery of a remedy that could reach all cases, or nearly all cases, would easily be considered one of the most remarkable discoveries of the age. 

We may safely state that v/hen people learn to keep the nervous system in perfect order there will be very few cases of insanity, if any, and physical diseases will be reduced at least one- half. In addition to this, the power and capac- ity of the mind will be increased to a very great degree. The majority of the fine minds in the world fail to do all they are capable of doing because their talents are interfered with by nerv- ous troubles of some kind, and these troubles not only tend to reduce the amount of mental energy, but also confuse the intellect and almost invariably misdirect the imagination. It is scarcely a mind living of exceptional ability or genius that is not addicted to the nervousness of some form, and that any mind can do its best under such conditions is impossible. 

The fact is if nervousness were completely removed from the race more than half of the physical ills, and nearly all the mental ills, would be removed. The strength and endurance of the body would be increased remarkably, and the capacity of the mind would in most instances be practically doubled. That a per- fect remedy for nervousness would therefore prove a great boon, to say the least, is evident; and a remedy has been found that fulfills all the requirtments, because from its very nature it simply cannot fail. 

This remedy will give health to the nerves in every case where it is used, and it is so simple that all who will apply it can do so successfully. That this remedy will remove nervousness in every instance may seem impossible, but when we examine the nature of the remedy we find that its never-failing effectiveness lies in its power to remove the remote cause of what may be termed the immediate cause of this ailment. 

That condition of the system that we call nervousness comes from discord in the nerve fluid, or what may be called confused vibrations in the electro-magnetic energies of the body. This is the immediate cause; but back of this cause there is a remote cause ; that is, that condi- tion that originally produces the confused vibra- tions in those energies. 
The nerve fluid we speak of may be termed human electricity, as its nature and actions cor- respond exactly with electrical currents, though, of course, it is much finer in quality than ordinary electricity. The human brain may accordingly be termed a dynamo because those fine currents are generated there, and the nerves may be termed the wires that carry this fluid or electricity to every part of the body.
