The following is the store gath
ered frem Mr. John Walker by a
GRAi'nic reporter. He said: "I
was attacked with Bevere pains in
right eye, forehead, and right side
of face. The pains gradually grew
more severe and I finally lost all
control of the muscles of the right
side of face, muscles of the eye
lids, and right side of mouth. I
slept with my eye open, and when
drinking the water would rnn out
at the right corner of my mouth.
My foo'l would also gather on the
paralyzed side causing me the
greatest annoyance. I suffered
severe pain in the eye, imparing
my sight, and the muscles of my
face were very painful, preventing
me ofcen from attending to my
I had been treated for three
months for this ailment, which
constantly grew worse, and I be
came fretful, despondent and dis
couraged. I was finally advised
by a friend to place myself under
the care of Nature's healer, Dr.
Fnlkersou. I lost no time in call
ing at the Endopathic Instituta
and consulting the Doctor. He
told me that he had cured cases
similar to mine, and thought mine
would readily yield to his treat
ment. The first treatment gave
great relief and now after a full
course am almost cured, a few
more treatments being all that is
required to completely restore me
to complete health and vigor. I
feel that the credit for this great
relief is all due to the skillful and
scientific treatment which I re
ceived from Nature's scientific
healer, Dr. Fulkerson.
