The city of Phoendx, chosen for the
location of the fifth congress, is in
every way well adapted. It is a thrifty
and progressive city of 12,000 inhabi

thousands who will come to attend
congress. Its local committee of ar
rangements and reception tis already at
work and the promise is extended that
every visitor will be furnished with the
best of accommodations at prices even
lower than usually charged locally. The
city is situated in the midst of the
richest Irrigated valley in America,
that of the Salt river, whose irriga

are to be studied works that have
transformed the parched plains into
wondrous orchards and vast fields of
alf alfa. Ample opportunity will be af

TO ALL SUFFERERS OF CATARRH IN ANY STAGE OF THE DISEASE
GREETING : This certifies that for the last twenty-five years I have been a eufierer from
indigestion and the dreadful disease of Caiarrh of the head, throat and ears. I have used
almost every preparation that has been introduced in that time for the cure of Catarrh, but
without receiving any practical benefit therefrom. I have just concluded at the hands of
The German-American Staff of Physicians and Surgeons, and can pronounce their system
of treating the disease the very best that I ever experienced, for it goes right to the root of
the trouble, thereby eradicating it and driving it out of the system. When I commenced
the treatment I was so deaf I could scarcely hear ; the right ear was in a bad shape, almost
gone ; the root of my tongue was all covered with dried nlcers. T fnrt bqv heen rti-pi-iag
to all who came in contact with myself. To the German-American Staff I consider I
owe a debt of gratitude for having completely restored me to health egain. I can hear to
day as well as I ever could, all symptoms of the disease have passed away. I cheerfully
.recommend ail sufferers from Catarrh not to put off, but to consult the German-American
Staff at once. They will cure you. If you are skeptical and don't believe it, just tele
graph me. J. J, HAN FORD,
