He is apparently a'out thirty-o or
+ two Vears of ago. lie firt came in
to public notice by his philantihropic
work atmong the poor. The large for
tune he pofsses-es has made it posi
ble for him to dit tribut many wag
on lomds of food and clothing among
those it ir digetm circumstances since
he arrived in Chicago.
The first that was known of Coop
er's power over disease was when Mr.
J 1hn Stauber. of 1607 Broaidway,
Cincinnati, Ohio, who was in the city
,on business, declared that Cooper
the philaithopi-t, was the same p-:r
eon who saved his life last March af.
ter he had been given up t' die by
his physicians. Mr. Stauber state.d
that last March the doctors hid told
him that be would not live until May,
-s he was in a terrible condition; ev
ery one said he had cnslmption; he
had a na!ty cough, with freqient
hemorrhages, dizzy spellk and wis so
we'ak that the least exet tion or ex

bm:; there were severe pains ill tho
stomaich and back, and his kidneys
were in baud condkiion.
"After my pliyicians gave ma up,'
said Mr. Stiub-r, '-Mr. Cooper heard

A fe-w davs after this Mr. 1I. L.

Webster said all his suffering bad
left him as if b)y magic, and he felt
li:e a new being.
Tim rep)ort of these remarkable
cures flew through town like wildfire,
and the Public Drug Store where
Ctoopor is making his h eadquarters, is
beseigeil by people suffering with all
manntier of "iinents.
The physicians of the city are
amatzed at the work he is doing, and
;iave tried to shake the wonderful in
itc'etee lie has over the people, even
going so far as to threaten prosecu
tion, but, a lie doesR not accept any
noney for hi services and does not
give out ainy mediciie himself, they
have been powerless to interfere.
Cooper creat.ed considerable anuse
mnit at the expense of the doe
tors by askuing them why they did not
write their prceript.ionls it E'lish
s> their patients would know what
they were taking.
Since the interest has become sc
wide spread that Cooper cannot meel
the people personally, he is receiving
an enot mous mail, and keeps a large
force of stenographers employea an.
swering it. In the meautime stories
