IIIi Disease a Lack or Equilibrium in Thought.
For about two years 1 have been trying
to find ont about Psychic healing, and to
more folly understand other methods of
avoiding the expense incident to the em
ployment of druggists and physicians in
the treatment of disease. I have hesi
tated about saying much relative to this
matter through the pres3, because I
feared that it might invade the realm of
religion, bnt I am now convinced that
these methods, so far as I have observed,
are entirely distinct and separate from
all kinds of religion, and therefore may
be safely discussed without running the
risk of interference with the belief which
every, man has a riRht to enjoy unmo
lested. I have also obtained the consent of
both the Allopathic and Homoeopathic
schools of medicine. The druggists also
told me that I would meet with no oppo
sition from them in a free and open dis
cussion of this matter of low-priced and
QUESTION'S ANSWERED FOB THE fATIENTS.
1. What is the treatment? Psvchie
or mental. 'It 13 not mesmerism, mag
netism, nor win power.
2. Upon what is the treatment based?
A Dhilosonhv of mind.
3. What is the basio principle? There
is a supreme cause in tne universe, mat
causa is smrit or mind.
4. What is affirmed of infinite mind?
It is unchangeable in truth. There is no
causation outside, of it, as it includes the
whole, none hipher than' it, as it holds
the same of all its parts.
5. What is its essenco? Truth, which
is lifo, wisdom and love.
G. What is man's relation to infinite
mind? He is related to the infinite as
his finite thought is related to himBelf.
He is a thought of infinite mind.
7. What is health? To finite thoncht.
a relative expression. In reality it is
wnoieness man's true inuentnnce.
8. What is disease? An expression
for man's belief in falsehood or a lack
of equilibrium in thoncht.
9. Does that apply to all forms of so
called disease? It is a universal principle
and admits of no qualifications. '
10. How is equilibrium or health re
stored? 13v realizing the truth.
I have oored over this cireular a cood
deal. I have been a frreat sufferer for
years, but had never before fully realized
that it was "a lack of equilibrium in
thought." The doctors had kept this
bade, -iney deluded me witn tne luea
that it was spinal meningitis. If they
considered it "a laok of equilibrium in
thought," they were afraid to offend me
by telling me so.
Lately I have suffered a good deal also
from indigestion, brought on by "a lack
of equilibrium" on the part of the Ameri
can raw clam, which I am passionately
fond of, but with which I soon become
extremely bored, On Wednesday I
dropped in at a place where a man was
closing out some misfit clams at a low
price. I need not enlargo again over
these clams, sutnee it to say mat x win
bnvno more clams at a forced sale.
I immediately thought of the Psychic
treatment. According to query and an
swer No. 8, my disease was simply "an
exnression for man's belief in falsehood."
The man had fold me that the clams were
fresh and that he had pulled the stinger
out of each ono.
I rode up Broadway in one of Mr.
Sharp's cars and attracted considerable
people got off. earlier than they had in
tended, and wauced tne rest oi me way .
I had left the address at my lodgings,
but I thought I could find the place by
inauirine. All New York people are kind
about telling a man where to go. They
always tell mm even it tney nave to ten
him to co where the worm dieth not but
squirmethon for ever and ever. Several
people have already addressed this hack
neyed rem art to me, iorgettmg tnat i am
utterly tired of it.
I was directed to climb the stairs of a
very high'building. - If-a man happened
to fall out of the upper window he would
strike the ground in the form of a fine
spray. I have since learned that I was
in the wrbng building. I asked a lady at
the head of the stairs if she knew where
I could set the eauilibnuni of a tew rest
less clams restored. She said that she
was engaged in the Psychio Industry and
invited me in.
. The room was plainly furnished with a
datK-browed door-mat and an umorena.
The mat had a number and street en
graved on it that belonged up near Har
I was in great pain and becced pile-
ously to be thrown out of the window,
but the healer told me to be quiet and
direct my faith towards the pit of my
stomach. I tried hard to do so but it did
not seem to make any difference." Then
I was told that my faith was inferior in
quality and deficient in quantity. She
said I must exercise the most implicit
faith and give her two dollars. I did so.
The healer said that just as soon as I
could firmly believe that my.pain had
gone, I would find that I was free from
it I exerted myself trying to believe
till I was blaok in the face. The per
spiration stood on the brow of my faith in
great knobs. Every little while I could
hear my confidence rip down by back in
its great effort to assert itself. It did no
We are told of many Strange and al
most miraculous cures bv this new meth
od, if it can be so called. Patients who
have been supported by charity and one
crutch have risen and cone forth recon
structed; large, eating cancers have sud
denly lost tneir appetites and ceased to
eat, and in one instance a new eyeball
sprouted and grew an . old socket full of
optic Large classes are formed to re
ceive instructions in the faith cure, and
if they succeeded in believing the above
statements they are Graduated.
Sometimes the treatment works well
on the disease, but injures the patient in
some other way.
Sometimes a cure is worked by the lay
ing on of hands and sometimes this is
omitted. The laying on of bands is not
Tepulsive to me in all coses, but it can be
overdone. In riding from Chicago to
Portland, Or., I once had a watch which
gave me a good deal of trouble by out
stripping the local time along the road as
we journeyed west. A gentleman on the
train, who was a psychio heeler, laid his
hands on the diseased watch and it dis
appeared. The chief objection to psychio
healing is the absolute failure in long
standing cases of poll evil,-blind staggers
and glanders. In a nutshell, the theory
is that if you believe you are healed, you
are healed, but the most stubborn resist
ance to this doctrine is met with among
both horses and mules.
I am free to confess, however, that my
first impression about faith cure was er
roneous. It is not a method of curing
enfeebled or broken-down faith, but it is
a means, wunout, medicine, of treating
by psychio' influences all diseases, from
the insidious and death-dealing pip to the
long-waisted and rapacious tapeworm.
I am treating this subject as absolutely
devoid of anything miraculous and on
the theory that an 8 11-wise providence is
not going to reconsider its decrees of dis
ease or death simply because the sugges
tion is made by an unknown person who
in KBiuig - per pup lur uiaung ma re
quest. Still, I do not wish to be unfair. I do
not wish to be put down as the relentless
foe of psychio healing, and so 1 am going
to give it another trial. I am now trying
it on ray hair. Btix Nik.
