CARPENTER. BLEEDORN'S STORY.
A Venerable German Resident, oi
Davenport, Who Was 111 for More
Than Twenty-five Years and Found
No Relief Until he placed His Case
in the Hands of the Specialists of
the Stackhouse Medical Institute.
Onn nf the best known and most

This represents the
MR. FRITZ BLEEDORN.
Mr. Bleedorn is a venerable gentle
man who has attained the age 01 u,
man's allotted three score and ten,
anil has excellent prospects for many
more years of usefulness, ror a long
time his health was seriously im
paired, but he has mow fortunately
found relief from all the maladies
that once threatened him.
I suffered for many years,"1 said
Mr. Bleedorn. "with sciatic rheuma
tism, lumbago, neuralgia of the fac
ial nerves and general chronic ca
tarrh. The beginning of these
troubles dates back over 25 years.
During the past year or two they had
become so severe as to occasion nic
some alarm and continual distress.
Havi'iif heard a rreat deal of the
remarkable results of the Stackhouse
treatment in cases of this kind. I re
cently applied to the specialists of
the Mackliouse meuicai lnsinuie jor
treatment. After a thorough exami
nation, they began the treatment of
niv case and I was gratified to find
myself rapidly recovering almost
from the very beginning. I am now
much stronger and better and be
lieve the Stackhouse treatment is
benefiting me as nothing else ever
can or will. I not only recommend
these physicians but will urge all
who suffer as I did to take this treat
ment and get well."

It was equally gratifying to us to again greet our many triends and note so many wno naa jaiwwj
inconvenienced themselves in order to favor us by awaiting the opening of our New Clothing
Store. The only regret we have is that we were unable to serve all owing to the big rush. We
have therefore decided to continue the
in order that everyone may have an equal opportunity to snpply themselves with a handsome
