You've probably been treated for
so-called weakness and helped
temporarily or not at all. and tha
reason is very apparent when
cause of loss of power In
men is understood. Weakness Is
merely a symptom of chronic In
flammation of the prostate gland,
which my treatment removes,

strength and vigor.
Tou can depend upon a quick and
thorough euro by my treatment. A
quick euro is desirable because a
slow cure Is apt to be no cure at
all, and a chronic development will
come later. I cure you beyond the
possibility of a relapse and In
half the usual time required.
Often- the condition appearing to
be the chief disorder is only a re
flex ailment resulting from some
other disease. Weakness some
times conies from varicocele ' or
stricture; skin and bone diseases
result from blood poison taint,
and physical and mental decline
follow long-standing functional
disorder. My long experience in
treating men enables me to de
termine the exact condition tho
exist and to treat accordingly, thus
removing every damaging- cause
and its effects.
