THE VIA VI TREATMENT.
Some twenty years ago, more or less, two young men with
a very small capital, but with much commercial ability,
and an "idea," began business operations for the develop-
ment of the "idea" in San Francisco. It was soon evident
that the "idea" was no less valuable than the methods of
development followed by the clever promoters. Time
passed, the business grew and expanded beyond the limits
of the city, of the State or the country, but the smooth
surface of municipality was not disturbed. These two quiet
gentlemen did not advertise themselves or their business
methods by forcing either on public attention.
They soon began to acquire valuable property in the prin-
cipal business parts of the city, they moved into the real
estate field and exhibited a shrewdness and a judgment in
the selection and exploitation of development enterprises.
They also soon took active interest in all civic, charitable,
and religious matters of the city. One of them being a
director on the Young Men's Christian Association. The
commercial sagacity which saw the value of the "idea" and
its development along original lines, and which intrepidly
had its beginning with an extremely small capital, has been
justified a thousand fold and has added to the city many
large and magnificent buildings.
THE VIAVI "IDEA."
Let us see whence came this stream of gold, pouring from
the original "idea," broadening and deepening until it has
become a river of gold, capable of conversion into palatial
buildings and holdings valued at millions. The "idea"
found its material existence in what is known to the pro-
moters as "the Viavi" treatment" and its essence is so
simple as to pass recognition. After reading all the Viavi
literature hereafter, referred to in my opinion, the merit
of the "treatment" consists in the well known principal of
the vaginal douche.
Here’s what’s next.
