Drs. STRONGS, REMEDIAL INSTITUTE, ON CIRCULAR, BETWEEN SPRING AND PHILA STREETS,

Is unsurpassed for beauty of location and accessibility to the principal Springs. This Institution was established in 1855, for the special treatment of

Lung, Female and Various Chronic Diseases.

During the Fall and Winter the Institute has been doubled in size to meet the necessities of its increased patronage. It is now the largest health institution in Saratoga, and is unsurpassed in the variety or its remedial appliances by any in this country. In the elegance and completeness of its appointments, it is unequaled. The building is heated by steam, so that in the coldest weather the air of the house is like that of Summer.

The proprietors, Drs. S.S. and S.E. Strong, are graduates of the Medical Department of the New York University, and are largely patronized by the medical profession.

In addition to the ordinary remedial agencies used in general practice they employ

THE EQUALIZER OR VACUUM TREATMENT, ELECTRO THERMAL BATHS, SULPHUR AIR BATHS, RUSSIAN BATHS, TURKISH BATHS, HYDROPATHY, SWEDISH MOVEMENT CURE, Oxygen Gas, Gymnastics, &c, &c.

For particulars of the Institution, call or send for Circulars on Lung, Female and Chronic Diseases and on our Appliances. Address
