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 came 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 colled 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. Grants 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. —New Zealand, Times, Dec. 25, 1879. 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 less 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 how 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 w-hich 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. I may add that two surgeons, whom I consulted a short time ago, considered the case incurable. ” Dr. Grant has also been very successful in several difficult cases ot disease of the eye. —Hokitika Times, March 23, 1880. There are amongst Dr. Grant’s successful eye cases at Hokitika, a young lady, at J. Jack’s, Esq., the Mayor, cured, by operation, of squinting; and Mrs. Wavent, operation for artificial pupil. Dr. Grant is also SPECIALIST in the DISEASES of WOMEN and CHILDREN. 428 STEEDMAN’S SOOTHING POWDERS FOR CHILDREN CUTTING TEETH. CAUTION TO PURCHASERS. The value of this well-known Family Medicine has been largely tested in all parts of the world, and by all grades of society, for upwards of FIFTY YEARS. Its well-earned extensive sale has induced SPURIOUS IMITATIONS, some of which in OUTWARD APPEARANCE so closely resemble the original as to have deceived many purchasers, The proprietor therefore feels it due to the public to give a special caution against the use of SUCH IMITATIONS. Purchasers are therefore requested carefully to observe the four following distinctive characteristics, without which none are genuine : 1st —In every case the words JOHN STEEDMAN, CHEMIST, WALWORTH, SURREY, are engraved on the Government Stamp affixed to each packet. 2nd—Each Single Powder has directions for the dose, and the words, JOHN STEEDMAN, Chemist, Walworth, Surrey, printed thereon. 3rd —The name, Steedman, is always spelt with two EE’s. 4th —The manufacture is carried on solely at Walworth, Surrey. Sold in Packets by all Chemists and Medicine Vendors. Sold by Kempthorne, Prosser and Co., Auckland. 63 WHO is Mrs. WINSLOW? As this question is frequently asked, we shall simply say that she is a lady who for upwards of thirty years has untireingly devoted her time and talents as a female physician and nurse, principally among children. She has especially studied the constitution and wants of this numerous class, and, as a result of this effort and practical knowledge obtained in a lifetime as nurse and physician, she has compounded a SOOTHING SYRUP for Children. It operates like magic, giving rest and health, and is, moreover, sure to regulate the bowels. . In consequence of this article, Mrs. Winslow is becoming world-renouned as a benefactor of her race. Children certainly do rise up and bless her. Especially is this the case in this city. Vast quantities of the Soothing Syrup are daily sold and used here. We think Mrs Winslow has immortalised her name by this invaluable article, and we sincerely believe that thousands of children have been saved from an early grave by its timely use, and that millions yet unborn will share its benefits and unite in calling her blessed. No mother has discharged her duty to her suffering little one, in our opinion, until she has given it the benefit of Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup.
