NOTED EXPERT SAYS
That Electro-Oxygen Will Era
dicate All Growths, Germs,
and Impurities and Should
Be Instrumental in Ban
ishing These National
Perils from Posterity.
"The greatest German authorities are
unanimous In stating that the children
of the future will, In all probability,
show a great tendency to nervous af
fections, hysteria, epilepsy, and various
other mental disturbances If the rapid
growth of nervousness Is not checked,"
says the president of the Electro-Oxygen
Co., who have opened offices In the Na
tional Fidelity and Casuallty Bldg.,
corner 12th and Farnam Sts., and who
have Invited the public to test this won
derful new discovery free of charge
commencing next Monday. April 14th.
"One of the' commonest and at the
tame time most dangerous symptoms"'of
nervousness Is the fact that It robs Its,
victims of refreshing sleep." Such a suf
ferer will go to bed tired out in the
evening after a hard day of mental and
physical exertion and while every cell
In the body Is craving rest, the over
exerted brain loses control of the body
and even when sleep does come It Is
broken and restless.
"Sufficient sleep Is absolutely Indis
pensable to all." It Is even more essen
tial to healthy life than food or water.
In cases of nervousness sleep Is often
absent or too heavy. All symptoms of
depression, that tired feeling, morbid
Imagination, dizziness, nevousness, head
ache or that rundown feeling are signs
of disordered nerves which Is being re
lieved In thousands of cases every day
by the newly discovered Electro Oxygen.
Be one of the fortunate ones and call
Monday and get your first treatment
