The Limit of Lite.
The most eminent medical scientists
are unanimous in the conclusion that
the generally accepted limitation of
human life is many years below the
attainment possible with the advanced
knowledge of which the race is now
possessed. The critical period, that
determines its duration, seems to be
between 50 and CO: the proper care of
the body during this decade cannot be
too strongly urged: carelessness thon
being fatal to longevity. Nature's best
helper after 50 is Electric Bitters, th3
scientific tonic medicine that revital
izes everv organ of the body. Guar

Cure is the only medicine that did me
any good. I had five of the best physi

Dr. Young, the Master Specialist of the West, is
Treating and Curing More Cases of Chronic
Diseases than AH the Other Physi
cians in the Tri-Cities.
t Owing to the large number of people
who have been unable to call on us and
be examined, and also for the benefit of
those who have been turned away on
account of being unable to receive an
examination, we feel that it is our duty
.to extend this generous offer of free
consultation, examination and treat
ment throughout the month of Septem
ber. This we have done for the ben
efit of the citizens of Davenport and
vicinity. We will give absolutely free
consultation, examination and treat
ment to all cases that call on us before
the first of October. We will tell you
the cause of yonr trouble without ask
ing you a question. This we are en
abled to tlo on account of our vast ex
perience in treating and curing chronic
jliseases; also with the use of Instru
ments of onr own invention and known
to ourselves only. We tell you the
cause of your trouble, and if it can be
xured we will tell you so; if not, we
will refuse to treat you, as we treat
only such cases that we know will re
spond to our treatment We inTiteyou
to call at our offices and be examined,
that you may learn your exact condi
tion and whether or not there Is any
hope for a cure in your case. This will
enable you to avoid giving your money
to quacks and charlatans, who claim tb
cure all cases, take your money and
you receive nothing in return for it.
We do not ask you to take our treat
ment; we simply tell you what we can
do for you, and if you bo desire, we will
take your case for treatment. If not.
you are under no' obligations, to us
whatever. We have under treatment
300 cases, every one of which is im
proving and will soon have gained their'
health. We have (several hundred tes
timonials at our office from patients
who have been cured by our special
treatment. Our offices are located onv
the third floor, South Putnam building, -Davenport,
