To those who may be afflicted, the undersigned makes the following statement.
My wife has been afflicted with rheumatism and other female weakness for the last five or six years, unable to walk. During the Fair at Athens a circular of Dr. Deming, the great magnetic healer now in Huntsville was handed me. I went home and at once brought my wife to Athens, who took the treatment from Dr. Deming. She felt perfectly better and was greatly relieved. On Tuesday I brought her to Huntsville and she was given a second treatment by Dr. Deming and, this morning, she is able to walk, and carry two thirds the weight of her body on her feet, which she has not been able to do in years. She will continue the treatment, and I simply make this statement of facts that others similarly afflicted may try Dr. Deming’s treatment.
