A conductor on a Western Express is the marvel of those who have been let into

his secret. Although having had both of his feet amputated, he is a conductor of extraordinary ability.

He passes through his train when going at the rate of fifty miles an hour; he collects and punches tickets with the suavity of one proud of his position. The car jolts, bitches, sways, and he retains his balance without the least awkwardness.

At stations he alights, with agility, watches his passengers and gives signals, boards his train and walks the passage way with the steadiness of one possessing his natural legs.

Day after day for three years he has performed this round of duty, and not a soul has had occasion to suspect that he operates on a pair of artificial legs with rubber feet, and only those to whom he voluntarily reveals his condition ever know of his dependence on artificial extremities. His movements are graceful, his appearance is natural, his step is firm and elastic, and his power is complete.

All this is made possible by the virtues of rubber, which largely composes the feet; the old methods of artificial limbs, wih wooden feet and mechanical joints, would

render this man unsafe, tottlish, unsteady, and unfit for a position that requires sound footing. The engraving represents Mr. Wade operating on his artificials in his chosen profession.

Conductors, engineers, firemen, brakemen, and men of all trades, who have met. with the loss of either extremities, have been restored, and enabled to resume their labors by the use of artificial limbs with rubber hands and feet.

Subjects can remain at home and have artificials made, with fit guaranteed. One half of the legs and arms are made from measurements and profiles, without the presence of the wearer.

Indorsed by the United States Government, the Industrial Exhibition Commissioners of New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New Orleans, etc., the eminent Surgeons in the country, the Press, and over 9,000 men, women, and children who wear them, residing in all parts of the world.

A treatise of 400 pages, with 200 illustrations, and 1,000 testimonials, sent to those needing legs or arms, who will give a description of their case. The same will be sent to Physicians and Surgeons free of charge.
