The United States gold dollar is
so scarce that dealers in old and
rare coins are advertising every
where for them, offering from $1.50
to s.'s apiece for as many as they
can get. Since 1889 the United
States mints have not coined any
gold dollars. Since then their value
has increased steadily. In the mint
in Philadelphia, where the dies for
all United States currency are
made, a reporter for the Philadel
phia Times was told the present
value of the gold dollars of 188!'.

worth from $1.75 to $2.50; those
marked D v Denver) are worth from

ALL CHRONIC DISEASES CAN BE
CURED IF HIS ADVICE
“During the past year I have treated
in Macon and vicinity, many hundreds
of patients, suffering from chronic dis
eases of nearly every variety, and not
in a single instance have I failed to
effect a cure where my advice has been
been followed to the end. This leads
me to believe nearly all chronic mala
dies can be cured. So well satisfied am
I of this fact, that I will give a written
guarantee of a positive cure to every
patient I treat, or, in case of a failure
I will forfeit the entire fee. To those
who are ailing and whose cases have
baffled others, this will be glad news,
so I w'ould be pleased to see it publish
ed in your columns.
“The maladies which prevail in this
section, and which I am most often
called upon to treat, are catarrh and
catarrhal deafness, male and female
weakness, blood and skin diseases,
goiter, cancer, rupture and diseases of
the rectum. Also the opium habit.
Scores of representative citizens who
have been cured by me will bear evi
dence of this fact”
Dr. Holleyman is the chief consulting
associate physician of the British Medi
cal Institute, located at 354 Second

He makes no charge for examination,
