This Offer May be Withdrawn at Any Time It is Important to Call at Once The Great Quaker
Physician's Work for Humanity, One of the Brightest Epochs in Medical History.
It has ntwnys been the cardinal principle ot
the Groat Quaker Physician's life to do the
greatest amount ot good to the greatest num
ber ot people. Ho has readied that during
tho past few months many people In Scran
ton havo been suffering from financial de
pression, owing to the existing labor condi
tions. Hundreds ot people have asked to
bo treated at a reduced rate. They havo
statod that their financial condition was
such that It would bo Impossible for them to
pay tho ordinary feo charged by physicians.
Doctor Byers' offlcea ara crowded to their
utmost capacity. His practice In this city
Is the largest evor accorded to any physician
In tho history of medicine. Hundreds of
hopelessly alclt have been restored to perfect
health nnd nl name Is a household word
throughout the state of Pennsylvania. It
would bo manifestly unjust to treat a few
at a reduced rato and charge others a higher
price, In order to give all an opportunity
to bo cured at n nominal price, he will treat
nil persona applying at his offices on the
following conditions:
1 All persons applying for treatment at
once, no matter what tho trouble may be,
will bo treated for the nominal sum of (10.00
until cured, medicines Included. This does
not mean (10.00 a month, but (10.00 for a
complete and rndlcnl cure.
Ho furthermoro agrees that If the patient
Is not completely cured in a specified length
of time, to return the money paid without
any quibbling or evasion; In other words, It
.will not cost the patient ono cent unless a
cure Is effected.
Doctor Byers wishes to emphasize
the fact that this offer may be with
drawn at any time, and In order to
get the benefit of It, It Is Important
to call at once. His practice Is so
largo that It will be Impossible for
him to continue this offer indefinitely.
If you call now you will receive the
most careful and scientific X-Ray ex
amination known to science, free of
charge, and you will be treated until
cured at the nominal sum of $10.00,
medicines included. If you are not
cured your money will be cheerfully
returned to you. Call at onpe, as this
offer may be withdrawn at any time.
The different tissues ot the body are made
up of minute cells, and when these celts
become disarrange!., disease Is the result. By
supplying the proper nutriment to the cells,
perfect health can be obtained. All diseases,
no matter how chronic, can bo cured by bring
ing tho cells back to their normal condition.
The treatment used by Doctor Byers Is not
allopathic or homeopathic. It Is a treat
ment based upon an exact science and cures
with tho certainty of a fixed law.
Doctor Byers never accepts a case unless
he knows to a certainty the cause ot the
trouble, and this can only bo determined by
a scientific X-Ray examination. His X-Ray
outfit Is the most elaborate and complete In
this country. By his special Fluoroscopic at
tachment ho Is able to examine all parts ot
tho body and find out to an absolute certainty
the cause of the patient's affliction. Come
and be examined; It Is absolutely free. He
will not charge you one cent. Come and
find out what your trouble Is and he will ad
vise you lu reference to a cure. It is all
Iree. Ho ailu ao compensation.

for fourteen years, which caused violent bear

and loins. My bowels were often moved at
high as seven times In one day. The strain
