For 2870-71. "For Gratuitous Pirculation, By P. H. Drake & Co., Ms. 53, 55 and 57 PAItK PLACE, New York. A GLA."E AT ITS OBJECTS* KFINITE WISDOM has informed us that "a merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit dneth the bones." In preparing the cod tents of the following pages, this important fact has been borne in mind. As a general rule, publications addressed to invalids are of a sombre character. This is alL wrong. Mental exhilirants, in many cases, materially assist the operations of the medicinal agents intended to sustain, strengthen and restore the physical sy lem. Cheerful faces round a sick man's bed do him good ; cheerful words assuage hiy pangs. They kindle hope, and hope is a pain-killer and vitalizing tonic. Many a patient has been moped into chronic hypochondria by a croaking nurse. Many a low-spirited sufferer has been half cured by a lively and jolly one. In "Morning, Noon and Night," the advice that commends itself to the common sense of the reader is given in pleasant and encouraging language. Original articles, written in a gay and sparkling vein, and embracing a variety of subjects of an amusing and interesting cast, are thickly set, like brilliants in sterling gold, among medical facts and directions which are invaluable to all who desire to regain lost health, or to preserve that inestimable blessing. The stereotyped humdrum of the Old Fogy Medical Almanacs that for half a century have been run in the same grooves over the same barren ground, has been utterly repudiated. To sum up in a sentence the object of this book, is to marshal invalids in the true road to health, and entertain them ae they go along.
