OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. We can conscientiously recommed those suffering from deafness or other ailments that Dr. Grant has made a special study of, to pay him a visit, when, if curable patients,"they may certainly expect relief. An instance canie under our notice on Thursday, in the case of a man named Charles Swanson, who had been very deaf for three years, but, after ten days’ treatment, can now hear perfectly even the lowest whisper. The cure is a rather remarkable one, as he had been under the care of many medical men, but has received no benefit whatever from their treatment —New Zealander, Dec. 27,1879. Mr. Earnest D'Egville Michau called at our office yesterday, and stated that he had been blind with the right eye all his lifetime. Hearing about Dr. Grant, the oculist, who is now on a visit to this city, he determined to give him a trial. He had only been under Dr. Grant s treatment ten or eleven days when he found that he could see large objects at some distance. Mr. Michau states that he had been under the treatment of some of the best medical men at home, but had not received the least benefit. We are at all times chary of accepting details of “ Wonderful cures,” but the young man who called at our office appearei to be telling the truth, and was exceedingly grateful to Dr. Gant for the relief which he has already experienced. —Ntw Zea* land Times, Dec. 25, 1879. Dr. Grant is also SPECIALIST in the DISEASES of WOMEN and CHILDREN. Dr. Grant has recently effected a very remarkable cure in the case of Mrs. D. Evans, of Kumara, who has been under his treatment for deafness since Feb. 14, last. Mrs, Evans has been deaf in both ears for a very long period—no leas than thirty years—her affliction having been caused by a fever, from which she suffered severely. Since that time she has been almost totally deaf, for she could only hear the the loudest sounds. Since she has been under Dr. Grant’s treatment her hearing has gradually improved, so that now she can hear plainly conversation in an ordinary tone of voice. She will return in a few days to Kumara perfectly well, and in possession of the full faculty of which she has been so long deprived.— West Coast Times, March 10, 1880. One of the employees in the Public Works office here has sent us the following testimonial to the skill of Dr. Grant, He says “ I wish to let you know that, Dr. Grant has greatly improved the hearing of one of my ears, the membrane of which was injured some six years ago.
