is to look on a shirt front, collar,

and it tells plainlly that it was
"done up" at this laundry, as noth

Free Treatment for Next Ten Days.
The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town lias 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 Dr. 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 offices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who had been sufTeiing with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less and quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for ycaTs. all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. Teople deaf for several
jears 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 f free TREATMENT for
the next ten days, and we wish to say that no sufferer should fail to avail
himself of the opportunity of consulting this eminent specialist as his ad
vice is valuable. If you cannot call, write full description of symptoms.
