The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance upon the suffering hu
manity of a city either he is going to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Br. Home announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating here, naturally all thinking people wanted
to know all about him. His advertisements were bold, startling, but con
vincing; the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
People commenced to investigate, and visited his ollices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who had been suiiering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being cured by a melhod that is as skillful, pain
less and "quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. People deaf for several
years had their hearing restored, and were, one and all. anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured.
"There is no doubt in the people's mind of the great good he is ac
complishing with his new methods, and all patients say how much he is do
ing for them He 'has extended his-liberal -offer of free TREATMENT for
the next ten days, and we wish to say that no sutTerer should fail to avail
himself of the opportunity of consult ing' this eminent sjecia!ist as his ad
vice is valuable, if you cannot call, w rite full description of symptoms.
