60 Neal 3-Day Liquor Cure
The wonderful success of the NEAL, 3
DAY TREATMENT for AlchollBm Is
conclusively demonstrated by tho rapid
multiplication of NEAL INSTITUTES all
over the world. There are now GO of
these In active operation In the United
States, Canada and Australia, and every
one reports a uniform, unbroken record
of successful cures. This in Itself Is
the best evidence of the genuine merit of
the NEAL J-DAT TREATMENT, and
should forever silence those uninformed
criUcB who scoff at the Idea of curing
the liquor habit In S days.
The Chicago Hospital, an Institution of
the highest standing, after a careful in
vestigation of the NEAL S-DAY TREAT
MENT by Its officers, medical staff and
management Indorsed this method and
recommended It strongly as an absolutely
successful treatment for the drink habit
The NEAL TREATMENT does away
with the dangerous and painful use of
the .hypodermic needle four or five times
dally for a period of rur to seven weeks.
Dr- Neat's marvelous treatment that has
so successfully revolutionized old time
methods consists of perfectly harmless
Internal vegetable medicines that posi
tively do this work In three days' time.
