MAGNETISM LAID BARE
Thousands of Dollars' Worth of Books on Personal
Magnetism and Hypnotism to be Given Away
by a Noted Philadelphia College.
Hon. James R. Kenney, of Pennsylvania, Chairman of
the Committee on Distribution.
Every One May Now leo**n AH the Secrets of These Mysterious Sciences at His
Hon. JAMES P.. ??.???G, of Pennsylvania,
Ex-Mayor of Heading Pa., noted orator, author and scientist.
*"T can honestly and conscientiously say from t??* long experience in dealing
with people and from my personal acquaintance with many of the most prom?
inent men in this c?-?untry, that there is no other one thing which will help one
so much in life as a thorough knowledge of Personal "Magnetism." says Hon.
James "j*. Kenney, "and for this reason I acceptdd the Chairmanship of ihe
Committee, on Distribution of works on Personal Magnetism and Hypnotism for
the American College of Sciences of Philadelphia.
"The real secrets e?f Personal Magnetism and Hypnotism have always been
j<vilously guarded by the few who knew them and kept them from the masses
i?f the people. One who understands these sciences lias an inestimable advan?
tage in the race of life. I want to put this information in the hands of every
ambitious man and -woman in this country.
?'The American College of Sciences lias just appropriated ?10,?i0 to be used in
-printing books for i?ree distribution, and if this ?loes not supp'y the demand it
wil! appropriate S10,<XiO more. The books are absolutely free. They do not cost
you a single cent,
?Toll me what kind of -work you are engaged in: or. if sick, the disease
from which you suffer, and I will send you Ihe book which will put you on
the road to success, health and strength. It matters not how successful you are,
1 will gu?rante?--? to help you achieve greater success. The work which I will
send you is from the pens of the most eminent specialists of the country; it is
richly iHustratod with the finest half-tone engravings, and it is intensely interest?
ing from start to finish. It has been the means of changing the whole current
in the lives of hundreds of persons who were ready to give up in despair. Ton
can learn home in a few days and use personal magnetism in your daily work
without the knowledge of your most intimate friends. You can use it to inllu
eiice- others: you can use it to keep others from influencing you. You can posi?
tively cure the most obstinate, chronic diseases and banish all bad habits.
*"lf you han-e not met with the business or social succ?s? which you desire;
if you are not successful in winning and holding friends; if you are sick, and
are tired of taking drugs that do not cure; if you care to develop your memory
or any other mental faculty to a higher state of perfection: or, lastly, if you
wish to possess that subtle, invisible, intangible power that sways and rules the
minds of men, you should write me to-day and let me send you a free copy of
our new book. It will prove a revelation to you." Address

no appetite; could not sleep or work but very
little. The little that I ate did not agree with ?

Health to the broken-down
Strength to the weak
Sleep to the sleepless
Energy to the wornout
_ Elasticity to the nerves
?&_ Pure blood
The practica^ helpful message which puts new heart into
? every ailing man or woman in the message of health brought by
the world's greatest medicine.
Nearly everybody needs toning up in the Spring, but
to those who are weak and exhausted by disease this is a
specially trying time. It is now you feel the burdens of
life as never before. All your weakest spots are attacked
and nature is not strong enough to pull along unaided.
Hrs. C. D. Smith, Waitsfield, Vi., says:
"I have been for a long time feeble, my nerves being very
weak. Many times when I awoke in the morning, I could not control
myself in the least and my nervousness found vent in a long spell of
keeping. It was 12 years ago that I was taken with this nervous
trouble, and I have suffered much. I have employed many doctors
with varying results. I can truthfully say that I have been greatly
benefited by Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, and
since I have used Nervura my nerves have been calm and quiet, my
general health has been better. I think the medicine is an exceil<ent
one and I gladly recommend it to others."
Bi*m Greene's NERVURA Biood and Nerve
Remedy is the Heip Yobs Need?
Mrs D. O. Furnald, of Manchester, N. H., Writes:
'* I have Used Dr Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy for nervousness.
"Loss of sleep and appetite were the principle ill effects caused by my condition. The
-tarin?*-* of ? bell or any sudden sound, no matter if trifling, would cause me to statt
and ?would greatly affect my nerves. Seeing in the paper how valuable Dr
Greene's Nervura was, I began taking it, and the result was very satisfactory I
took four bottles and I can sleep beautifully and my appetite has returned. I feel
so much better that I have now stopped taking the Nervura."
FREE ADVICE FOR YOU.
Simple, but marvelous is the work of Dr. Greene's great medi?
cine and its successes are due to the harmonious fitting in of its
elements with nature's own forces. Dr. Greene's advice is to be had
without cost by all who call at his office. 3 5 W. 14th St., New York City,
