The marvellous cures made by Dr. Barbrick and Prof. Hall have attracted the attention of thousands of people in every walk of life and given to the sick and suffering new life and hope. That the deaf are made to hear, the blind to see, and the lame to walk; that the unsightly tumor is made to waste away and the foul cancer cleansed and dried up simply by the touch of the hand and the applications of their treatment seems beyond belief, but such are the claims made by those who have been treated by them and you are given the chance to test for yourself whether such things are true.

Although they treat all forms of chronic, long stand ing, obscure and difficult cases and cure many so-called incurable cases they wisli it thoroughly understood that if after a careful examination of your case they are in doubt as to the curability of it, they will frankly tell you so, and they reserve the right to reject any or all cases.

Collecting the beautiful photographs found in Malt Breakfast Food is the most sensible fad that children ever took up. A beautiful carbon photograph is put in every package of Malt Breakfast Food that leaves the factory, and these artistic pictures of animals, babies, flowers, landscapes and ideal heads will do much to foster the love of the artistic and beautiful. Many a home now lias Malt Break fast Food for its morning cereal because Johnnie or Mary asked mother to buy it in order that they could have the pho tographs, and now mother and father will have no other cereal. Malt Break fast Food is simple, honest food, good to eat, delicious and satisfying, two full pounds in every package. There is nothing queer about Malt Breakfast Food, not even the name. It is intended to be cooked before serving, and in this way the two-pound package becomes twelve pounds of hot, delicious steaming breakfast cereal, that goes eight times as far, pound for pound, as the ready cooked food. In addition to the 3x4 photographs that are in every package of Malt Break fast Food, larger photographs, that would cost two or three dollars at the art stores, are given in return for cou pons found in the packages. These are expensive carbon photographs, entirely without advertising, and would adorn the finest homes. Meat is high, eggs are higher, but the price of Malt Breakfast Food stays the same as ever, although the package has has been increased recently. It is the most economical of all foods, and your grocer will tell you that it letums your money's worth more fully than any other cereal on his shelves.
