" Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime ; And, departing leave behind us Footprints on the sands of Time." fTIHE above is read with great inter- JL est by thousands of young men. It in- spires them with Hope, for in the bright lexicon of youth there is not such a word as fail. Alas ! say man.v, this is correct, —is true with regard to the youth who has never abused his strength — and to the man who has not been " passion'a slave." But to that youth — to that man who has wasted his vigour, who has yielded himself up to the temporary sweet allurements of vice, who has given unbridled license to his passions, to him the above lines are but ?is a reproach. What Hope can he have ?. What aspirations? What chance of leaving his footprints on the sands of time ? For him, alas ! there is nought but dark despair and self-reproach for a lost-life ! For a man to leave his footprints on the sands of time, he must be endowed with a strong brain and nervous power. He must possess a sound, vigourous, healthy mind, in a health body — the power to conceive — the energy to execute ! But look at our Australian youth ! See the emaciated form, the vacant look, the listless hesitating manner, the nervous distrust, the senseless, almost idiotic expression. Note his demeanour and conversation, and then say. Is that a man to leave his footprints on the sands of time ! Do parents, medical men, and educators of youth pay sufficient attention to this subject ? Do they ever ascertain the causa of this decay ; and having done so, do they (as a strict sense of duty demands) seek the skilled advice of the medical man, who has made this branch of hi« profession his particular speciality, whose life has been devoted to the treatment of these cases ? Reader, what is your answer ? Let each one answer for himself. Parents see their pro- geny fading gradually before their sight, see them become emaciated old young men, broken down in health, enfeebled, unfitted for the battle of life ; yet one word might save them, one sound and vigom-ous health-giving letter from a medical man, habituated to the treat- ment and continuous supervision of such cases, ■would, in most instances, succeed in warding off the impending doom of a miserable and gloomy futare, and by appropriate treatment restore the enervated system to its natural vigour, and emure a joyous and happy life. Dr L. L. Smith, of Melbourne, has made the deseases of youth and those arising therefrom his peculiar study. His whole professional life has been especially devoted to the treatment of Nervous Affections and the Diseases incidental to Married Life. His is skill available to all — no matter how many hurdreds or thousands of miles distant. His system of correspondence by letter ie now so well organised and known, that ivcommeat would be superfluous — (by this means -"^feiany thousands of patients have been cured whom he has never seen and never known ; and it is carried on with such judicious supervision that though he has been practising this branch of his profession for twenty-six years in these ! Colonies, no single instance of accidental disco- very has ever yet happened. When medicines are required, these are forwarded in the same careful manner without a possibility of the con- tents of the parcels being discovered. Plain and ilear directions accompany the latter, and a cure is effected without even the physician nowing who is his patient. To Men and Womeu with broken-down Con- stitutions, the Nervous, the debilitated, and all suffering from any Disease whatever, Dr L. L. Smith's plan of treatment commends itself, ' avoiding as it does, the inconvenience and ex- pense of a personal visit. Address — DR L. L. SMITH, 182 Collins-street East, . Melbourne.
