on his reputation as, a tumbler. When

crying. They carried him out, and the
boys made a little tun of hiin aud then he
laughed and walked home and was walk

Experience is worth everything.
Knowledge gained by consulting
with, critically examining and sue
eessrully treating thousands of per
s »us ol every uge, BOX, profession
aud occupatiou, affected with every
presentable form and stage of disease
or deformity, enables them to them
to assure those sufferings with like
tnuladies that they have, succeeded
iu restoring to health a, majori
ty of cases treated, eveu after other
skilled aud energetic physicians had
failed to effect any permanent change
for the better.
They treat chronic diseases aud
deformities us a specially. Those of
lingeriug, difficult or doubtful charac
ter especia'iy solicited. They con
sult with and examiue all applicants
free of charge. If they believe them
curable, after an examination, they
will tell them so. They give houest
opiuious, and make aud maintain
their reputation by cuies effected un
der their cure and treatment. Kvery
case that they undertake to treat, and
fail to cure, is a direct iujury to them;
therefore they must be prudent aud
careful. They tell you what they can
do for you. and what it wiil cost, aud
leave you tree to decide lor jour
selves. They do not urge or per
suade you to take tneir treatment.
