On last night some remarkable demon
strations were made In public by the
Great Fer-Don, who Is Introducing Into
Portland the remarkable remedies' which
created a sensation In eastern cities.
The demonstrations, as usual, took
place at the free show grounds at Wash
ington and Twentieth streets, and were
witnessed by hundreds of -people. Fer- !
Don promised that one application of
one of his preparations would make the
deaf hear inside of three minutes, and
would also make the Jame to walk in
the same short space Of time.
There were many deaf people present,''
and about a half dozen of these were given
a demonstration of the Fer-Don Magic
Relief with unvarying success. Mr.
George Seely, who lives on East Burn
side street,- was the first to test- this
remedy. It relieved him of deafness
of long standing.
R. MpKertny, 309 Clay street, who had
long suffered from deafness, waa great
ly relieved. -
The hearing of these and others who
came upon the platform was tested
after an Interval of two and three min
utes. The test consisted of Questions
put to them in s.n ordinary conversa
tional tone at distances varying from
five to fifty feet.
The results were remarkable In the
extreme. Some of those treated had
been deaf for, a number of years. When
the first question was asked a look of
amazement would spread over their
features. Aathe questioning was re
peated the look of surprise would give
way to one- of pleasure.
In giving an account of these demon
strations, Fer-Don said: "The prepara
tion used is not the one with which I
accomplish most, as my 'Fer-Don's Med
ical Discovery,' as It is called,' and to
which I owe my success, is for treat
ment of all forms of stomach trouble,
and the general breaking down of the
system that follows In. the wake of dis
eases of this character.
"The stomach Is the seat of a great
many troubles; for Instance, my rem
edies will relieve thousands of people in
this city of rheumatism, simply by get
ting the stomach in working order,"
. Many, people 'seen who were . present
at this demonstration assert positively
that Fer-Don's remedy undoubtedly
made, these deaf people hear again.
