Free Treatment Notice.
To convince every render of this
paper that I possess the grandest,
simplest awd most successful method
of restoring vitality and curing: dis
ease that is knewn to 'e ecientiiie
world, I have decided to give all
, electrical treatments and prr-fcssioiial

will expect for my services is a rec

finally I went to see Ir. I'.artz ind

say that five minutes of bis
electrical treatment did mo m. -.it-
good than mouths of previous doi
toring, in fact the first treatment
removed all pains."

Mr. John Newman, residing at
Searstown, 111., says: ".My back both

a considerable extent. Not knowing
what to do I decided to go to In.
Bartz's office' and try one ef his fro
electrical treatments. To my sur
prise the first treatment put an end
to it ill less than five minutes. Dr.
Bartz's treatment beats anything I
ever saw. It doesn't hurt like the
old way of giving electricity."

casion. ho, too, was missing from hi.
accustomed pew. The altar boy under
study, was asked if he would object
performing this little service, and re-ad
ily went to the front. The eolleetioi
amounted to $L't;.!., the largest tin

day since the prL'st had been holding
services at the chapel. The pries;
asked .Mr. Keck if he expected to re
turn next summer, nnd if he did h.
could consider himself engaged.
One elay last, week a certain lad
heard a gentle knock at the back doo;
and upon opening it found a iicgn
standing there, lie had a satchel, o
a cane, slung over his shoulder aa.
apparently had but one arm. He bi
