Dr. Whittier, ,
A regularly-bred Physician, from the Medical College of Canada, Tronto, as his Diploma which
hangs in his office, will show, dated 1848, where all who receive honors are by law obliged to
study five years at least, and then pass a rigid examination—not as in the West, two short
winter terms of 16 weeks each. Dr. Whittier has made Chronic Diseases the study of his life, and
has a Union-wide reputation, having been longer in St. Louis than any other Chronic
Disease Physician.
Much of his practice has been of a private nature. Surphilis, Gonorrhea, Gleet, Stricture, all

Every Body
Can get, in a sealed letter envelope; my Theory,: Symptoms and Treatment of Nervous, Urinary
and Sexual Diseases, clearly delineating all the diseased conditions, with full Symptom Lists, for two
three cent postage stamps, to prepay postage. Circular for Ladies, relating to Disease of Pub-
erty. Menstruation and Pregnancy, 3c.
By the use of these lists, patients at a distance can answer the same questions that a scientific
physician would ask at a personal interview, and in many cases much better, as they would
have more time for reflection. He keeps a systematic record of all his practice,—the symptons’
the drugs used, quantity used, time of using, &c., and the experience thus gathered is treasu-
red up in these records. He avoids the use of mercury or poisonous drugs—succeeds better by a
judicious alternation of remedies, mostly vegetable.
