and scroteni. This appliance requires to be moistened with vinegar and water when used. This dampening railroad nien and travellers found to be very incoiivenient, and Mr. Norman set to work to devise an application that -would give off as much curative electricity when used in dry form. This lie at length succeeded in doing, and the result -was the introduction of his Excelsior Electric Belt, which excels all other electric body wear ill the quality and quantity of electro galvanism it gives off, and, besides this, a great volume of magnetism is discharged from it coiitiiinously. The user is in no Avay incommoded, and there is no loss of time required in the application of electricity in this form. The difference between electricity applied in this way and electricity used from a battery is, to use an illustration, the difference between food and a stimulant. The intense current got from a Galvaiio-Faradic Battery acts as a stimulant to the nerves and circulation, but the pure galvanic or magnetic current given off from the belts feed the blood and nerves with vitality, that is vital force. Electricity and -vital force are the same thing, only slightlN-changed in form, just as light, heat and galvanism are only different fornis of
electricity-. It is manifestly better to feed and nourish the system than it is to stimulate it, and particularly so when Nve are sick or weak. His establishnient is fitted with various kinds of baths, such as electric, sulphur, vapor, mercurial and herbal baths, and applies the curative properties of electricity in all its forms, both wet and dry-, as suits the case he is treating, and all his patients feel themselves to be ill the hands of a man who knows leis business. Mr. Norman claims to be the leading medical electrician of this continent. He was married in iS68 to the daughter of Mr. G. Read, builder, of Toronto.
