THEY COME FOR HUNDREDS
OF MILES TO SEE HER ,
Nothing so Wonderful in the
Days of Specialism.
The success of Dt. Caldwell is at-
trilmted to her special study of spec
ialism. Dr. Caldwell , student , philan
thropist and physician of wide repu
tation , having given her entire time
and practice to a line of specie , dis
eases , which enables her from long
experience In handling those troubles
to certainly come forward as a master
specialist. Her faculty for mastering
disease , her ability to diagnose , and
her plan of treatment is excelled
by few other physicians. Dr. Caldwell ,
although a young woman In life , a
plain woman , ami one who Is used to
the nps and downs In life , puts her
self on a level with her patients and
iliit-s not pretend to practice the old
plan of fashion , which Is to l < x > k wise
and say nothing. She knows dlseaso ,
and the spot whore located , and most
of all she knows from oxporlenco ,
from what she has done in the past ,
slu- can certainly do for ethers In the
future. It is said by Dr. Caldwoll's
frifiuls that she can diagnono a dis-
< -asi > of any patient without asking
them a single qiifstlon , that being
the case , she is not likely to doctor
them for a wrong ailment ; she will
nut take an incurable case and load
i Inpatient to believe that she can
cure them when there is really no hope
for them. Her business Is largo and
she has plenty to do , even , at times ,
mure than she can do , without taking
incurable diseases and deceiving her
patients. Dr. Caldwell Is a graduate
, from one of the host schools in Amer
ica. She has practiced her profession
In some of the principal hospitals of
this country. Her specialty comprises
that class of diseases which the or.
dlnary Imnio doctor falls to euro , such
as female diseases , heart diseases ,
diseases of children and the many
special 'Msoases of hidden nature.
Her practice Is mostly among the
plain , hard working people who are
unable to come to tier city ollico for
treatment ; she Is reasonable in her
charges and very lenient with tlioso
who are not able to pay. She is char
itable , and It is said has never known
to refuse to treat a patient who is
worthy and in need. A number of the
Important cases that wo hereby take
the liberty to publish , which might
bo of interest to some who wish to
