GEO. WILKINS VERMONT'S GREATEST Magnetic Healt-1 Makes His Third Visit to the BROOKS HOUSE, BRATTLEBORO, Mar. 30, 31 and Apr. I. Scores of suffering men and women as well as children were treated by Prof. Wilkins last week, and some of the cures were no less than miracu lous. Hearing was restored for one lady, also for a man, after the first treat ment, They were both considered hopeless cases. One man from West Brattleboro had cataracts removed so he is now able to see to read and do work which he could not do be fore in years. You can see these people for yourself and have this statement verified. One man, who had suffered with rheumatism for years, was able to dress himself after first treatment. Another man came with dislocated shoulder and had the use of it be fore he left Prof. Wilkins's office, Space will not allow us to enumerate the cases helped. But you can come and learn for yourself. It won't cost you One cent to see The Great Healer aJid ascertain whether or not he can help you. Prof. Wilkins positively refuses to treat any person whom he can not help. HE USES NO MEDICINE, NO DRUGS, NO KNIFE. Suffering men and women, what does it mean to you to be told at sight your condition without a ques tion being asked? And more, Prof. Wilkins tells you positively whether or not he can help you and further demonstrates to you before you leave nis office his power to heal. Hundreds of men and women are going to the asylums and to their graves every day, who, if they only Knew it, could be restored to neaitn by this wonderful power of God Given Magnetism. Prof. Wilkins treats and cures the following diseases: Paralysis, Rheu matism, Neuralgia, Pleurisy, Sciatica, as well as the Diseases of the Heart, Lungs, Stomach, Liver and Bowels. He makes a specialty of the Eye and Ear, Nose and Throat. CATARACTS POSITIVELY REMOVED. The dis eases of men and women of a private nature positively cured. Prof. Wil kins's success with Tumors and Ap pendicitis is certainly wonderful. The diseases and deformities of children yield like magic to his power. Prof. Wilkins turned away a large number of people last week whom he could not see. You must come early and wait your turn. A competent lady assistant will receive and wait upon you.
