HOW THIS WOHK IS DONE.
Dr. H. O. Flower's college physi
cians make professional trips In var
ious sections of thecouiitry. nnd soon
Dr. Flower expects to have a college,
(or stuff) physician In every Statu In
the Union. Those nlllleted with ser
ious clirnulo disease diseases other
physicians cannot euro should con
sult ono of Dr. Flower's stall physi
cians nt some point near to their
home, This physician makes n care
ful examination of the cuso, nud writes
out a full diagnosis of the disease, and
forwards It Immediately to Dr. Flower;
the patient Is then treated from Dr.
Flower's office, and his case Is under
tho doctor's direct supervision. It
makes no dlffereneo whether the pal
lent Is examined by Dr. Flower or by
one of his college physicians; tho re
sults nro, In either ease, the same,
and the treatment Identically the
Tho eollego physician, upon exam
ination, tells thu patient how long a
treatment will bo ririulrcd to euro
him, nud arranges with him ns to
terms of treatment. Dr. Flower's
terms for treatment aro so much a
mouth, or so much for the, oitlmatod
time to cure, Dr. Flower furnishes
everything necessary for tho treat
ment, with full directions, and takes
tho entire caro of tho case,
Thus Dr. Flower Is able to give his
patients tho most skilled and scleutt
lie treatment, and his patlunls are
carefully examined Jkuii tlmoto time
by skilled nud experienced physicians.
