Woman's Body Rescued
From the Grave.
Felt Dead and Lifeless, But Blood Made to Flow Through Veins Once
More By Strange Man's Mysterious Control Over
Disease and Death.
DOES HE POSSESS SUPERNATURAL POWER?
Makes flesh arrow or disappear at will. Recalls strength of organs worn ail
by disease or age. Renews vital energry, stops pains, straightens
crooked bones, removes onncers, tamers, sores, and unsightly,
growths, and performs other seeming miracles.
And threatens to apset modern medical practice by healing hopeless lava
lids of diseases prononnced Incurable by physicians.
Says there Is no disease ho nir not cure and offers free services and homo
treatment to the sick and afflicted to prove to all mankind the marvels of
his power Distance does not hinder nor doctors' verdicts dlsconrago.
NEW YORK, Sept. 15. (Special Corre
spondence.) By his mysterious control over
disease and death Dr. Wallace Hadley,
the eminent thaumaturgic panopathlst of
this city, has made the human heart beat
again In the body of a woman rescued from
the grave. And as a result of his success
ful experiments he makes the startling
statement that no disease should cause
death. He claims to have discovered the
vital principle of life Itself, the dynamic
force that creates and maintains existence.
Since making this discovery the cures
made by. this man of science have been
so remarkable, the restorations to life and
health that he has brought about have
been so marvelous, that he la credited
with possessing some power over disease
and death not given to ordinary mortals.
He seems to have absolute control over
human life and the diseases that control
It. Time and again he has taken men and
women pronounced hopelessly Incurable
and on the verge of the grave, and restored
them to life and health In the face of such
apparent Impossibilities that he Is credited
with working miracles. The wonder Is In
creased by the fact that he performs these
cures without the useless drugs dispensed
by doctors, and that he gives freely of his
services without charge to all who are
sick and afflicted, saying during a recent
"I believe that It Is my duty to God and
man to help all who are in need. I am not
millionaire, but I am well able to afford
to do my share toward relieving the suf
ferings of mankind and driving disease
from the earth. And since It Is my power
to cure and drive out disease I feel that
I must not use this gift wrongfully. I
have no right to deny a poor man the boon
of health, nelthej do I believe In making
mm waste nis money on useless aruii.
It Is not only that medicines often do
more harm than good, but 1 have "found
something as much superior to them as
the sun is to a candle. As evidence of
this my experience has proved that there
Is no disease I may not cure since making
this discovery. 1 do not care how severe
tho case may be, how chronic, how long
standing, what other men have said or
failed to do, or whether the patient has
been pronounced Incurable or not. I am
Just as ready to cure consumption, cancer,
paralysis, Brlght's disease, organic weak
ness and other so-called Incurable diseases
as 1 am to cure stomach and bowel trou
bles, rheumatism, nervous prostration,
blcod disorders, catarrh or any of the
other ills that human flesh is heir to.
1 have done so many times over. Without
Intending to boast, I may safely say that
I treat more patients In a year than the
average physician does In a lifetime, and
among these are numbered casea that are
probably among the worst In the country.
And I cure because I have at my com
mand a power over disease so great that
Its extent can hardly be realfsed. For
Instance, read thia letter from one of my
patients, Mrs. J. G. Whitfield, of Norfolk,
Va., who writes:
' 'I was so near crossing the Great Val
ley that my body felt dead and lifeless;
but you made my heart beat again and my
blood flow through my veins once more.
I was very despondent when you came to
my rescue. My stomach, liver and kldneya
were In such a bad state I waa afraid I
couldn't ever be cured, and In addition I
was afflicted with varicose veins and ulcers,
that I thought could not be cured. I was
In despair when I wrote to you feeling that
It was a chance for life and health. I suf
fered untold misery, but now I can shout
for Joy over my restoration to life and
health. I don't feel like the same person.
I do feel so thankful to you. May God
ever bless you.' And this from Mr. E. C.
Bess, of El Campo, Tex., who says: 'I was
as good as dead when you came to my
rescue with your most wonderful discovery.
I was suffering the -torment of the damned
turn to California, where they will make
their future home.

DRUGS AND MEDICINE
from rheumatism, liver and kidney disease,
and dropsy. It Is hard to tell which was
the worst, as they all set me almost crazy
with pain. 1 did not know a comfortable
moment free from pain. It was like having
toothache all over my body, and all going
at once. Doctor after doctor had given
me up to die, left me dead, and could do
nothing to relieve me. But you brought
me back to life. I suppose you know how
you did It, but I don't and I don't much
care about the how, as long as you did
It so quickly and permanently. The man
I am now could whip three of the man I
"Then here Is another from Mrs.' E. J.
Shepherd, of Colfax, Iowa, which reads:
'i sm one of those poor unfortunates whose
many years have been spent In bodily
affliction. My troubles were bronchitis,
kidney disease and catarrh of the head,
stomach, bowels. I am 64 years of age,
and In those years have tried dosens of
doctors, and hundreds of remedies, trying
to get well, but nothing cured me until I
took your Force of Ure. I was confined
to my bed and coughed continually. I was
In the Jaws of death and felt that the end
was near, but you rescued my body from
the grave and gave me back the health
that 1 have not had since my youth. Now
I am strong and well, and thankful to you
and the kind providence of our Divine
Helper." These are only random examples,
but you see that they all tell the same
story of restoration to health In the fnce
of what seemed certain death. But these
and the other so-called 'miracles' that I
have been credited with working, are not
miracles In the same way as those de
scribed In the Bible. They may seem Just
as wonderful to the witnesses, hut they are
In truth simply scientific phenomena that

that bids fair to unset modern medical
practice, since now no case may be con
"What la this discovery?" was asked.
I have discovered what creates life. I
have found what, creates disease and death,
and how they may be prevented. A case
of disease Is no longer a mystery to me.
whatever It may be to othera. I can see
through It as through clear glass. I see
the cause and I know the cure. Cases have
como to me that have baffled some of the
best physicians In the country; where one
doctor has said the trouble was with the
stomach, another snld heart. Mill another
diagnosed kldnev disease or something else.
But In each case I was able to see the real
cause, snd by removing It I restored the
patient to perfect health. I have known
stomach trouble to be diagnosed as heart
disease, and heart disease as rheumatism,
and countless other similar Instances.
When these mistakes are made and the pa
tient is treated for the wrong disease, how
can the sufferer hope to get well? It Is as
If you tried to tfure deafness by wearing
eye-glasses. One Is Just about as sensible
as the other. But I make a careful diag
nosis of each case that comes to me and
treat the real cause."
"You spoke of giving your services free?"
"Yes, that is right. Anyone who is 111 In
any wap and wants to be cured merely has
to write to me. addressing Wallace Hadley,
M. D., Office 876A. 708 Madison Ave., New
York city, telling me their greatest pain
or trouble, their principal symptoms, age
and sex. and I will dlagnoae their case, and
send them a course of home treatment
absolutely free of charge."
"Do vou mean that anyone who ts sick
can write to you to be cured without pay
ing you any money?"
"Yes. I mean Just that. Both my services
nnd the treatment I send are free. I want
to prove tA the whole world the value of
my discovery, and, as I said before, I feel
that it is my duty to give health to all the
poor sufferers that I can. And I am epe
cUllv anxious to cure those who have
been told thst their case Is Incurable,
that there Is no nope ror tnem to res-sin
th'lr lost health and strength. If ' they
will write to me and let me treat them
there Is not onlv hope, but an almost sb
solute certainty that they need be sick no
longer. And It makes no difference wher;
they live. A letter does Just as much good
as a personal visit. I can cure them In
their own homes ss easily and surelv as If
they came to me or I went to them.
