Wasted Powers of Manhood Permanently Restored.
Wo want to talk or writo to every man who Is afflicted with vnricocelo or Its results nervous debility and lost manhood.
The question of Rood health should bo of vital Interest to every man. We cannot understand how- any man will stand Illy by
and ee his manhood slipping away from him and his health being undermined, when ho knows that he can bo sarely cured.
Our entire professional career has been devoted to the study and treatment of sexual diseases, and the feet that we are dolns
the largest practice In St. Louis proves that we are skilled and succissful In the practlco of our specialty. It Is Just as easy to
do Rood work as poor, and much more satisfactory: wo realize that cured patients are our best means of advertising. Every
patient receives our personal attention, our verv best servicer, and when you place yourself In our care, you may rest assured
that you will receive the very best treatment obtainable and that you will bo cured in tho shortest time possible. We havo per
fect confidence In our ability to cure every case of varicocele and lost manhood that comes to U9 for treatment; and we feel
that It is our dutv to let tho public and suffering mankind know It. In so doing we not only benefit ourselves, but help afflicted
men who would otherwise suffer In silence, not knowing where to seek a cure.
IflDIOnnCI C "Varicocele is man's most prevalent and Insidious dircase; it Is a condition of enlarged and broken-down
IMIllUUlliZLC veins of tho left scrotum; feels like a bunch of earth worms. There Is a faulty circulation of the blood to
'vNwwwwthe vital organs, the glands become softened and wasted from lack of proper nutrition; the whole sstem Is
poisoned with stagnant, clotted blood. You become nervous, despondent and irritab'e your memory fails, your old-time energy is
lacking, you cannot concentrate your mind on your work, you grow weaker and weaker vitally, and ultimately becomo but a
wreck of your former self. It makes no difference what tho cause be It injury, overwork or excesses you have tho disease,
and it is'iery Important that you be cured without delay.
Voimif Mnn, are vou afflicted with Varicocele? You surely must realize that It is Very essential to your futuro health,
happiness and success that you be cured of this dread disease at once. We are thoroughly familiar with every sympton of this
condition, and knowing as we do tho awful results of neglect, our sympathies arc enlisted with every sufferer from the disease.
Throw Away Your Snspenjiory Suspensories, Medicines, Electric Belts, etc., will never cure this disease. They may
glvo ou temporary relief, but what you desire is a safe and permanent cure.
Our Eleotro-Chcmlc Method of treatment Is your refuge: it Is the only positive euro for Varicocele, outsldo a dnngerous,
wide-open surgical operation. Our treatment Is entirely painless and devoid of danger. It has all tho advantages to be deriyod
from the rurgical operation, but none of tho many disadvantages. Under our treatment tho stagnant blood Is forced from tho
dilated veins, all soreness and pain disappear, the veins resume their normal size and a healthy circulation of pure blood to
tho parts is established; you are strengthened in every way Physically, Mentally and vitally.
W Why not take preventive measures before It is too late? If your typewriter Is broken, you have It repaired Immediately.
", Why not bo as considerate of your own person? It Is a duty you owe yourself and family that you bo cured at once.
V Wo have cured over 10.000 of the most complicated cases, of Varicocele, and have yet to have a failure or recurrence. Wo
give a written guarantee In every case accepted, and we can prove to the most skeptical that we are doing just as wo
claim. Wo have ourselves tried all the different methods of treating this disease, and know from actual experience that wo
can give you tho quickest, safest and most reliable cure obtainable.
CCVIIAI nCDII ITV f aU tne diseases to which man Is heir, none Is more serious In Its nature and destructive In
OvAUHL UCDILII I its progress than Sexual Debility or Lost Manhood. It comes on Insidiously, is persistent in Its
wvnns'v,n advance and dire and certain in Its results. It undermines tho strongest constitution, breaks
down the physical strength, deranges the mental faculties and disorganizes or destroys the sexual powers. Millions of promising
young men aro ruined through sexual ignorance, abuse, overwork and excesses; at 30 they aro prematurely old and weak,
and very few at 40 are enjoying perfect manhood. No man who has transgressed the laws of nature, who has been indiscreet
in his youth or indulged in later excesses Is safe until such time as the results of these errors havo been removed or cor
rected. Our special treatment for weak men acts by overcoming the effects of former indiscretions; It strengthens the weak
ened seminal ducts: stops all losses and drains of vigor; restores the organs to their normal size and warmth: removes all
reflex symptoms of diseaso and weakness, and you soon will regain that fecl'ng of pride, confidence and power which are so
precious to every man. and which invariably accompany good health and restored manhood. Avoid experiments and Incompe
tent treatment- Do not trust In nature for a cure; but cast your modesty aside, and consult skilled, expert specialists; who
will quickly restore you to what nature Intended a healthy and happy man, with physical, mental and sexual powers com

the finest In France. It cost a fortune. "The
