TO CONSULT THE EMINENT
SPECIALIST, DB. DARRIN,
Tho AttlKhci Should Call Now
at Ihe Hotel Colfax.
HIS VISIT IS LIMITED UNTIL
The Petentlfle Treatment of This Well
Kuowu Specialist Has Cured
I? is a rere opportunity that comes
once in a lifetime for the etliict'-d to'
1 nrn from a recognized authority— |
chronic diHeasc; expert, a speciality— jiint !
wuut their trouble is and whether or not |
it ifl curable. All they would have to do
in to apply to Dr. Damn, who han re
turned to Ts.lfax for the last time this
season and is now stopping at the Hotel
Oolfax. He gives free confidential ex
aminations and Hdviee between the
hours of 9 a. m. and 8 p. m. daily, there
fore a little talk will coßt nothing.
Let Those Come Who Have Some
Those who have suffered for years
without knowing just what it was that
d*d ail thfm and are perplexed by the
different opinions given by diff rent doc
tors, Dr Drtrrin will tell them how they
ntuffctr, and if curable he will tell how they
can be cured, and if incurable he will say
Dr. Darrin Is Honest With the Sick.
If he finds a case where medical skill in
powerless he frankly tells the patient co,
and gives such advice as will aid them
without charge. If curable Dr. Darrin
tells just how much it will cost to be
cured. This saves sick people the
trouble of going from one doctor to
another to find out what they "think"
the trouble is, and then trying to de
cide which doctor was nearest to the
truth. It saves suspense; it saves
money—for Dr. Darrin points out the
sore spots, tells every ache and pain, tells
why they suffer and how they can be
cured. There is no mystery about it—it
is no superhuman bugaboo, but simply
the result of years of hard work treating
nothing else, and the grand experience
gained in treating thousands of similar
cases that enables the doctor to tell at a
glance what organ is affected, how and
why, and what the remedy is.
Consult Him Today, Tomorrow, or
Any Time Next Week.
Dr. Dun-in will examine all cases lice
of charge. His continual success in
treating chronic diseases has won for
him the largest practice among the best
classes of people in this vicinity. His
cures are attested by the thousands of
published testimonials from sick people
all over the northwest.
The doctor has the most effective
treatment known for the successful treat
ing of the patient in the privacy of their
own home. Dr. Darrin says distance
makes no difference it the effecting of
cures, as he keeps in constant touch with
every patient by correspondence from
his head office on the Sound until each
case is cured. Thousands have been re
stored to perfect health in this way that
otherwise would have died or continued
to suffer chronic invalidiem.
The afflicted should call and secure
proper treatment before it is too late
and bejond medical and human aid, for
it is seldom indeed that Colfax is favored
by the visit of a high class specialist
whose experience has been world wide,
covering many years of practice.
