He is a lawyer of prominence in Phila

the different colors in the sun's rays,
and their effects upon vegetable and an.

had already demonstrated that the blue
rays of the sun's light had greater chem

veloped a greater amount of heat, and
were especially stimulating to vegeta
tion. But these experiments had been
barren of practical results, aud Gen.
Pleasonton was left to his own resources
to carry out his ideas. He built a large
grapery, covered with glass, every
eighth row ot which was blue. By this
arrangement, the sun in making its

twenty varieties of grape vines in his

soon began to show a most vigorous

ed with an Alderney bull-calf, which
was so puny and weak at its birth that
the manager of the farm said it could
not live. It was put under blue glass,
and in twenty-four hours it was able to
stand up, and was taught to drink milk;
in tour months it was a penectiy aevei

ins Gen. Pleasonton's discovery, relates
the case ot a lady who prematurely
gave birth to a child, which was weak
and puny, weighing but three and a-balf
pounds at birth. There were blue cur
tains to the windows of : the room in
which the child was reared, and these
were arranged so that the light, enter.
ins the room, came about equally
through the blue curtains and the plain
glass of the windows. Ine child bega:
to thrive, developed a tremendous ap
petite, while the lacteal system ot the
mother was greatly increased. The
child grew rapidly in health, strength
and size, and, at the end of four months,
weighed twenty-two pounds. Commo
dore Goldsborougb experimented with
two broods of chickens, placing one un
der blue glass, and the other in an ordi
nary coop. Ine former soon snowed
the stimulating effect of the blue glass,
their growth being almost visible from
day to day, and their strength, size and
vigor tar exceeding that of the chickens
in the ordinary coop. This is testimony
from a gentleman ot high standing, who
is in the habit of carefully weighing bis
words. The
was suffering from a complication of
disorders, and the medical fraternity oe
New York and Philadelphia could do
nothing for her. Her husband, Dr.
Beckwith, writes that she was suffering
from nervous irritation and exhaustion,
which resulted in severe neuralgic and
rheumatic pains, depriving her of sleep
and appetite tor food, producing great
debility and a wasting away of the
body. Ine lady and her husband had
abandoned hope of her recovery. Gen
Pleasonton recommended the trial ot
the blue class, and accordingly Dr.
Beckwith arranged one sash ot a win
duw with alternate panes of blue and
common class. His wife then exposed
to the effect of the associated rays ot
blue and plain light, those portions of
her body which were affected by ueu-
raigia. in turee minutes mju cpcn-
enced relief, and in ten minutes the
pains disappeared. With each appli
cation ot the associated lights, her pains
became less, her appetite and strength
returned, and in three weeks she was
restored to her normal healthful condi
tion. This lady had been losing her
hair in consequence of her sickness, there
being several bald places on her head.
Under the stimulating effects of the
bine glass, the hair began to grow vig
orously, aud the bald places were soon
covered with a luxuriant growth ot hair.
Dr. Beckwith, in relating th;s case,
says : "Jb rom my observations ot the
blue and sunlight upon my wife, I re
gard it as the greatest stimulant and
most powerful tonic that I know of in
medicine. It will be invaluable in ty
phoid cases, cases of debility, nervous
depression and the like."
old friends of Gen. Pleasonton, were af
flicted with rheumatism in their tore-
arms, from their elbow-joints to their
finger-ends, so severe at times that they
were unable to hold pens. J. hey deter
mined to try Pleasonton's "blue glass,"
and accordingly obtained a piece of blue
glass and set it up loosely iu one of their
windows, r or three days they bared
their arms and held them in the associ
ated blue and sun light for thirty min
utes. Each day brought tliera relief,
and at the end of three days the rheu
matism had disappeared, lwo years
later they both informed Gen. Pleason
ton that thev had not had a return of
rheumatism in any form. A little child
that had, from its birth, fcarcely any
use of its legs, was taken to play daily
in a room where blue grass iormed a
portion of one ot the windows. In a
very short time it obtained the use of
its legs, and learned to walk and run
without difficulty. Numerous other
cases are mentioned in Gen. Pleason-
ton's book, showing that there can be
no question of the stimulating and cur
ative effects of the associated blue and
sun light. But I prefer to give my own
experience, and then follow with Gen.
Pleasonton's explanation. A lady ot
my family, about six weeks ago, had a
and for ten days raised more or less
blood daily. She was very much weak
ened by the loss of blood, aud consider
bly frightened withal. I obtained
some blue glass and placed it in the
window where she was in the habit of
sitting, the blue glass constituting one.

The lady sat daily iu the associated
ights allowing the blue rays especially
to fall upon the nerves of the back o.
the neck for about an hour a day. The
second day, the sun's rays being unusu
ally strong, she got "too much blue
glass, at night felt peculiar sensations
in the back of the neck, among the
nerves, and an unpleasant- fullness in
the head. These sensations wore off
next day, and since then she ha- not re

restored to health.
A singular feature of this young la
dy's case was that her hair all came ont,
and she became as bald as an egg. ner
physicians examined the scalp with a
microscope, and declared that there
were no roots of hair remaining, and
that, consequently, Fhe would never
again have a natural head of hair.

er, the hair'did begin to grow, and the
young lady discarded her "wig, and
when ehe called upon Oen. ITeasonton,
she showed him a luxuriant growth of
nair, which any young lady might envy.
She was profusely grateful to the Gen
eral for having restored her hair, and
incidentally saved her lite. So much
for examples and illustrations. These
ard numerous others which I might cite,
if you had space to print them, show
that the blue associated with the sun
light have a wonderfully stimultaing
effect upon both vegetable and animal
lite, and have cured some diseases with
which the human family is afflicted. If
they will do this, everybody ought to
know it, for the treatmcmt costs noth
ing, and" is a great saving of doctor's
bills. Now for
scientists, who are now experimenting
with the blue glass. What results have
been obtained is not known. All sci
entists admit that electricity is a force
regarding which very little is known.
They are all striving to learn more re
garding it, and to make it mote subser
vient to the will of man. Perhaps Gen;
Pleasonton has got
of all of them, and holds the key of the
puzzle in bis grasp. I should add, how
ever, that he is exceedingly modest re
garding his discovery, aud says s "I do
not profess to teach any one ; but as a
human atom among the masses ot man
kind, tor whom all knowledge should
be disseminated, I venture to impart to
to the public the conclusions to which
I have arrived on these subjects, and
that public may attach to them what
ever value they please." When I see
a near and dear relative daily advanc
ing from sickness to health, gaining
strength and vigor from the application
of his theory, I, for one, attach very
considerable weight to it. In the hope
that others may be induced to experi
ment in this direction, where no possi
ble harm can follow, and mv&h good
may result, I have written this letter.

of the curative effects ot the associated
lights. In his letter to me he puts it
thus tersely : "Sunlight passes through
plain transparent glass with very slight
obstruction, as it does through the at
mosphere and ether of space ; it pro
duces no heat for the glass remains as
cold as the outside atmosphere while
the sunlight passes through it. When,
however, the adjoining sunlight, mov
ing with the eame velocity as the first
mentioned, viz : 186,000 miles per sec
ond, falls upon the blue panes ot glass,
six of the seven primary rays of sun
light are suddenly arrested by it, only
the blue ray being permitted to pass
through into the apartment. The sud
den stoppage of these six rays of light,
with this enormous velocity produces
friction ; this friction evolves negative
electricity, which is the electricity ot
sunlight passing through the cold ether
ot space aud our cold atmosphere, both
of which beiug negatively electrified im
part their electricity by induction to the
rays of sunlight as they pass. The blue
glass is oppositely electrified. When
these opposite electricities, thus brought
together, meet at the surface ot the
glass, their conjunction evolves heat
and magnetism ; the heat expands the
molecules of the glass, and a current of
electro-magnetism passes into the room,
imparting vitality and strength to any
animal or vegetable life within it.
When the atmosphere of the room be
comes thus electro-magnetized, its in
habitants cannot fail to derive the great
est benefit fiom being in it." Gen.
Pleasonton's book is devoted to the sci
entific discussion of his theory, aud to
the recital ot proof to sustain him. He
boldly combats many theories which
have been accepted as established prin
ciples, and ably puts forward his own
as a substitute. For instance, he denies
affirming that there is no such thing.
He holds that electricity is the all-controlling
force ot nature, and by and
through it we live and have our being,
the earth revolves, the planets are sus
tained in their several places, and all
that. He further denies the accepted
theory that the sun is an incandescent
body, throwing off heated rays, and
that there is any heat in the sunlight.
He argues that the earth is surrounded
by an envelope of atmosphere and ether,
which has been proved to be ot a tem
perature minus 142 degrees centigrade,
and that it would be absolutely impos
sible tor the sun's rays to penetrate this
cold envelope for a distance ot 92,000,
000 of miles and preserve any portiou
of heat whatever. According to Pleas
onton, all our heat is evolved from the
earth, and the heat and cold of our at.
mosphere are regulated by the distance
ot this cold envelope from the earth.
Not being a scientist, and not having
much time or space at my disposal, I
shall not pretend to explain Gen. Pleas
onton s ideas. Let those who wish to
read his book 6end to Scribner for it,
inclosing 82, and they will get it. But
"the proof ot the pudding is in the eat
ing." While I cannot explain scien.
tifically the operation, I kuow that the
blue light, in conjunction with the plain
light, has produced wonderful effects,
both in curing diseases and otherwise.
It costs nothing to try it, for, although
a patent has been issued to Gen. Pleas
onton tor his discovery, he has not
sought to profit by it. Let
with it, whether upon vegetable or ani
mal life, go ahead. If upon vegetable
life, the proportion of blue glass to trans
parent should be about one-eighth ii
upon animal lite, let it be about equal

a trifling co6t. The results already ob
tained aud certified to by men ot known
character and-standing are sufficient to
make ridiculous the one who would cry
"humbug." Facts are facts, and can
not be wiped out. Whatever one may
think of Gen. Pleasonton's theories or
his explanations of the results obtained
by his experiments, no one who reads
his book can doubt but these results
have been obtained. In France, hies
