Was Convinced of the Powers of
Magnetism Against Her Will.
This is an age that craves facts and
facts only and if they are facts and
statements that can be proven by
some one Ave know and those whose
veracity is beyond question, they can
ibtain the attention of the afflicted
who are in search of health.
Especially is this true as regards
medical and scientific facts, which ad
mit of no question of veracity. Of
this class none present more conclu
sive evidence or claim to world-wide
acceptance than the principles of
vital magnetism. The magnificent
demonstrations bv the Hoy Phenom
enon of these principles at the thea
tre two weeks ago have aroused in
tense interest among? our most -intelligent
and educated citizens.
That this interest is becoming wide
spread is shown by the great number
of patients that throng his private
parlors at the. Harper house, which

true pathos with -the finest dramatic
effects of stage history. The success
ful treatment of patients at his pri

dict, wish to state that nine year
ago abscesses and gatherings formed
in my cars, which left me almost to
tally deaf. I tried several doctors,
without getting any benefit. I was
told by them that the drums of my
ears were destroyed and that 1 could
never hear again. Against my will I
was persuaded by my friends to try
the Hoy Phenomenon. I had his phy
sician examine my ears, and he pro
nounced them curable. With very lit--tie
hope of being cured I undertook
the treatment. After I had taken
two treatments I became discouraged,
as I (lid not see much improvement;
but the doctor advised me to con
tinue, and I am happy 1 did, for now,
after three treatments by the Hoy
Phenomenon. I can hear my watch
lick T5 inches from my ears and hear
ordinary conversation very readily,
and 1 am very happy and thank God
for m v recover v. (Signed)
