DR. BARTZ EXTENDS HIS GREAT
OFFER TO THE SICK AND
FREE TREATMENT UNTIL CURED
Due to the great rush of pa
tients and the numerous special re
Quests received, asking for an exten
sion of the free treatment offer, due
to the fact that they have only re
cently begun to realize the marvelous
results to be obtained from the use
of electricity when properly applied,
and being desirous of adding at least
45 more new testimonials to his list
of cured. Dr. Bartz has concluded to
extend hl3 free treatment -offer to
everybody calling for 30 days longer.
Dr. Bartz wants the true merits of
his successful treatment known to ev
erybody and he don't know of any bet
ter way of introducing it than "by of
fering his services until cured abso
lutely - FREE OF CHARGE
to all calling between now and May
31. Many of you who have been
taking medicines and so-called
treatments for months will be abso
lutely cured by a few applications of
electricity properly applied Very
chronic cases will require somewhat
longer time, but it makes no differ
ence, you will be treated Tree until
you can say I am cu.'ed.
Under no circumstances will Dr.
Bartz accept a prpfesslonal fee from
any" patient applying between now
and May 31.
Among the dlseaees successfully
treated by Dr. Bartz are diseases of
the Nerves, Blood, Skin, Stomach, Kid
neys, Liver and Bowels, including
Rheumatism, Constipation, Dyspepsia,
Indigestion, Gall Stones, Paralysis,
Weak Nerves, Epilepsy, Catarrh.
Goitre, Asthma. Eczema, Scrofula and
Diseases peculiar to both men and
BEAD WHAT THE CURED SAY
Electricity Finally Cured Him.
Mr. Charles E. Norrls, who resides
at 2939 Fifth avenue, Rock Island,
says: "For the last 25 years I had
'great trouble with pain and weak
ness in my back, some days I could
not do a thing, and to get rid of it,
I have tried almost everything, both
Internally and externally. Finally I
heard of the work Dr. Bartz was do
ing with electricity and made up my
mind to try his methods. Today I
am pleased to say that just three of
his treatments removed all pains and
my back is now as strong and good
Now Feels Strong and Robust
Mr. Andrew Koxvik, residing at 815
Nineteenth avenue, Moline, says: "For
about six months I had trouble in my
chest. I coughed and suffered a lot
of pain. Nights I was restless, 'n
fact I felt as though I was going down
hill very rapidly. I tried different
treatments but everything I tried was
a failure. Finally I just decided to go
and see Dr. Bartz. I am glad I did
so, for after taking about a four weeks'
course I feel like a new man. The
cough is practically all gone and I fejl
strong and robust whereas formerly I
felt like a weakling."
Says Ir. Bartz's Treatment Is Mar
velous. Mr. E. H. Corbln, who resides at
316 Fifth street. Rock Island, says:
"For the past seven years I suffered
pains in the small of my back. At
times it was very severe. I had tried
plasters, etc., but it did not seem
to remove It, so finally'I concluded
to 6ee Dr. Bartz about his electrical
treatment and 1 am Indeed glad I
did so, for now after a short course
the pains have all disappeared. His
treatment is certainly marvelous."
The equipment In Dr. Bartz's offices
is an elaborate one. every Instrument
known to science of any value for th-j
diagnosis and cure of disease Is to ba
found there. One of the doctor's great
secrets in curing so many diseases i?
due to his expert knowledge of the
human body, very frequently, by thi
aid of his wonderful instruments, he is
able to diagnose a case, describing an!
locating every ache and pain without
asking the patient a. single question.
