Does human health depend on one
organ alone? This question is becom
lug widely discussed since L. T.
Cooper first advanced his theory that
the stomach is the true seat of life
and all health dependent upon it.
Mr. Cooper, who has met with re
markable success in the sale of his
new medicine, believes that the stom
ach is responsible for most sickness,
and that this organ is weak in the
present generation. While discussing
this theory recently, he said: "I am
asked time and again to tell why my
medicine has made such a record
wherever I have introduced it. My
answer always is, 'because it restores
the stomach to a normal condition.'
No one will deny that today there are
more half-sick men and women than
ever before Nothing critical seeps to
be the matter with them. They are
just half-sick most of the time. They
don't know really what is the matter
with them. I have talked with thou
sands during the past two years, and
few knew indeed what their trouble
was. One said nervousness, another
a ,aid kidney trouble, another liver com
plaint, some constipation, or heart
trouble, or luig trouble. Many had
treated, as they called it, for most of
these diseases at different times. A
very common complaint is 'all run
down,' or 'tired all the time,* or 'no
"I know positively that every bit of
this chronic ill health is caused by
stomach trouble, and nothing else. My
New Discovery puts the stomach in
sound condition in about six weeks.

icine is selling at such a tremendous
rate. I have convinced many thou
sands of people that these things are
so, and the number is growing by;
leaps and bounds."
Among more reccnt converts to Mr.
Cooper's beliefs is Mr. Edgar L. Hinds,
living at 6 Tappan Street, Everett,
Mass. Mr. Hinds has this to say on
"I have sufferea with stomach
trouble for eight years. I was not sick
enough to be in bed, but just felt bad
all the time. My greatest trouble was
that I always telt tired, would get up
in the morning feeliur as tired as
when I went to bed.
"I had a very irregular appetite, and
was troubled with dizzy spells. If I
stood for any length of time, I would
have a dull pain in the lower part of
my back. I was nervous and felt all
the time as though something terrible
was going to happen. . I tried many
kinds of medicine, but nothing ever
'I had about given up all hope of
ever being in good health again, when
I heard so much of Cooper and de.
cided to try his medicine. I took one
bottle of his New Discovery and was
greatly surprised at the result I
gained 12 pounds in a few weeks. I
can now eat anything I wish. and feel
like a new man. I cheerfully recom
mend this medicine to all sufferers
from stomach trouble."
It is worth anyone's time, who to not
enjoying good health, to learn of Mr.
Cooper's wonderful preparations. We

The probability id that the crop will
not exceed twelve million bales. In
an interview in Atlanta, some months
ago, the president of the Internation.
al Spinner's Association, who was
also President of one of the largest
mill interests in England, admitted
that English mills had sold thei
output of cotton cloth on an average
of sine imonths or mre, on a basis of
fifteen cents per pound for cotton.
This being the case and there is no
reason to doubt the statement, who
is entitled to this extra margin of five
cents per pound, between recent pri
coo, and the prices at which the mills
h.ave sold their output at a profit?
The cotton farmer can pay tte ad
vanced. price for cotton cloth, manu
fa3tured on a basis of tifteen cents Ver
pould, but if he dans refuse lo
dump his cotton on the market, at a
los of five cents a pound to its ac
kuowledgedI vaiue, you brand his
ronduct as "reprehensible."
And this you think has brought
