Then turn the Crank, regulating the strength of the current by the speed, and by the Knob at the end of the Box; it being // desirable to increase the strength only to that degree most agreeable to the patient. It is less unpleasant to the patient if wet // sponges are placed in the ends of the Handles, and these applied to the skin, as they prevent the prickling sensation. The sponges // should never be put inside of the Box while wet, as they rust the machinery. In applying it for the Toothache, Tic-Doloreux, or // Neuralgia, the operator takes one Handle and places his fingers or sponge over the affected, while the patient holds the other // Handle. In applying it to the foot, place one of the Handles in the water with the foot, and hold the other in the hand, or apply it // to any other part of the person. The Bearings and Spring must be oiled occasionally. // Manufactured and sold by W. H. BURNAP, Sole Proprietor, Lowell, Mass., whose signature is attached to all genuine // Machines.
