Free examination, free consultation
and free treatment until you are entirely
well. Sncb is the generous offer made
by the United Doctors to all patients
accepted for treatment during their vis
it to Columbus at the Thurston Hotel
on Wednesday March 16th and Thursday
The only charge that will be made is
for the medicine used, which mast be
paid cash. To very poor patients the
medicine will be furnished free also.
The object of the United Doctors in
makinglhis grand free offer is to secure
a few supposedly incurable cases quick
ly to demonstrate the tremendous cura
tive powers of this wonderfnl new sys
tem of medicine ss used by the United
Doctors. These specialists solict one or
two of the most difficult cases from each
locality in order to show what can be
done by scientific treatment, even in the
worst forms of diseases.
The treatment used by the United
Doctors is non surgical. They never
use the knife, never mutilate the body
which God has made in his image. On
ly the best and porest of chemicals are
used by thee specialists, their motto

to the beat medicines that are to be fonnd
in nature. To obtain pure drugs they
prepare all of the medicines in their own
lalioratory and thus every patient is as
sured of pure medicines, the bent obtain
able, regardless of coat.
The expensive and elaborate instru
ments nsed in disgonosis and the ex
treme care used in securing pure drugs
and preparing them especially for each
case, makes the treatment used by the
United Doctors more expensive than
ordinary treatment, yet the larger num
ber of patients treated makes it possible
to place the price of treatment within
the reach of all.
This is really a vary remarakable and
generous offer by these great specialists.
It is an offer of free treatment until well
regardless of the length of time required
to complete the cure This offer is
good only in cases accented for treat
ment during their visit to Columbus on
Wednesday. March HUh and Thursday,

to all, but only curable cases will be ac
cepted for treatment. If your case is in
curable you will lie told so and not one
penny of your money accepted. How
ever, many cases that are incurable by
the old methods can he quickly cured by
