I wish that I could Impress upon every man tha aerloua
condli:on which Is sure to result from neglect to have proper
ly treated the slightest indication of a loss of manly vigor.
The evmptoms are plain, but ere so often unheeded. Spots be
fore the eyes, dtsalness. falling memory, emissions. weak
back, bssfulness, etc. etc., should worn every man of the
danger which Is Imminent.
DON'T TRIFLE WITH DISEASE.
The wrong treatment k> always worse than no treatment
at all. and 1 want to warn you against the folly of expecting
the sllgh est relief from the "free sample" and "free treat
ment" and other fraudulent methods resorted to by unscru
pulous so-called "doctors'’ and "medical Institutes” In differ
ent ports of the country. I am constantly receiving patients
from whom these schrmerr have extorted money and have In
jured Instead of benefiting their case
SKILL AND SCIENCE YOUR ONLY HOPE.
Tou cannot afford to experiment on the human system. I
have devoted twenty years to the close study of these diseases
and have cured mnety-Mne out of every hundred cases I have
cured such stubborn cases which had baffled the lklll of oth
ers and liad been declared Incurable that I am acknowl
edged the most skilled specialist in the Untied States. In
fact, so successful have been ray otlglnal methods of treat
ment thal 7 acknowledge w> superior anywhere. I do not say
thin boastfully, but It is only natural that my treatment
should succeed because I have studied claaely every phase
of the evil and understand It I horoughly.
I GIVE EACH CASE CAREFUL STUDY.
It la foolish to expect the same treatment to cure every
ease I carefully diagnose and study each case and prepare
treatment to meet every requirement, lly methods era strictly
up-to-date and I am a ways the first In the Booth to introduce
the latest dlscoerics of science for the relief of the aflitcied
I curs all Chronic Dlaeasee of Men and B timer My method
of treating all Nervous Diseases, Stricture. Blood raison.
Varicocele. Bladder and t’rtnary Complaints, rentals Weak
ness. etc., etc., are so uniformly successful that I have cured
more cases than any ten other physicians in the ttoutb.
