Remarkable Words on Per
sonal Magnetism From an
Xo subject has excited so much inter
est or awakened so much discussion among
thinking people of late as that of Per
sonal Magnetism. It is worthy of note
that clergymen, doctors, college presi
dents and men of science everywhere are
giving it deep thought. Many of them
have openly certified to its wonderful
powers. The outspoken words of the Rev.
Paul Weller of Gorbam, X. V., in this con
nection will call forth no little additional
REV. PAUL WELLER.
In answer to a personal letter from an
intimate friend, asking if it were true
that he (Rev. Mr. Weller) had become a
firm believer in Personal Magnetism and
Hypnotism. Rev. Mr. Weller wrote:
The facts arc: The subject of Personal
magnetism, or Hypnotism, to which I have
devoted many years of study, was recently
mare forcibly than ever called to my atten
tion through reading a scientific work on the
subject, now being circulated by the New
York Institute of Science of Rochester, N. Y.
I am a minister of the gospel, but I do no:
hesitate to say that the reading of that book
and the subsequent study of its contents have
worked an all-powerful, important and good
Influence over me. My recommendation of
Personal Magnetism, a subject which every
mau and woman may study with profit, is
made after thorough investigation and with
complete knowledge of its great value. 1
make this statement deliberately. The study
of Personal Magnetism," as set forth in the
admirable books I have mentioned above,
should be next to the study of the Holy Bible.
Personal Magnetism embodies all the laws
governing man's influence over man. It is
the power that makes men mold the minds
of men. It turns life failures into successes.
It develops the latent powers of the will and
makes one capable of the accomplishment of
great deeds. I have received many letters
on the subject, and to all writers I have
answered: "Write to the New York Institute
of Science, Rochester, N. V., asking for their
scientific work on Personal Magnetism and
Hypnotism. It will be sent to you free of
charge. If its perusal does as much for you
us it did for me, you will thank me the long
est day you live for having called your atten
tion to the book. Yours truly.
(Rev.) PAUL WELLER.
It will only be necessary for you to send
your request to the New York Institute
of Science, Dept. 207T, Rochester. N. V..
and you will receive the volume Rev. Paul
Weller recommends by return mail. IT
IS FREE. A postal card will bring it.

SAYS HERRON'S A MARTYR
PRAISE FROM REV. MR. THIRSTON
The Erratic Profe«NOr Feel* the

fimw Yoi-k Sun Soeo/af Smrvlcm.
New Haven, Conn., May 4. — For the
first time since Professor George D. Her
ron, the socialist leader, sprang into un
pleasant prominence in the east, the criti
cisms which have been made of him at
every turn seems to have had their effect,
for last evening he was unable on account
of illness to speak at a socialist meeting
which had been widely advertised. Rev.
William Thurston Brown, of -Rochester,
N. V., a personal friend of Professor Her
ron, came in his stead and at the begin
ning of his address said:
It is hardly necessary for me to state to
this audience what detains Professor Herron
from appearing before you this evening—
the illness which has been brought on by
the savage attacks which this man has been
called upon to withstand.
From his earliest time Professor Her
ron has been subjected to crucifixion upon
crucifixion about which the world cannot
know and a new chapter has been added to
the tragedy of his life.
Those who should properly have stood
with him—should have been his friends
should by their Christianity have shielded
him. have judged and condemned him un
heard, as they would have Jesus of Naza
reth or any other pure man. Now I am
not here to defend Professor Herron. The
man needs no defense, for a whiter soul does
not live in this world.
There is not a man or woman in this
audience with a whiter soul or purer motives
than George D. Herron. If the public knew
what some people do of the facts in this
case they would wonder at the unselfishness,
the magnanimity, the courage of this irre
proachable man under circumstances un
speakably hard, and I know of what I speak.
But Herron Is not so much to be pitied
as those who have condemned him, for these
are the men without moral sense or ethical
consciousness who fail to recognize the mer
its and poise of this true man.

Agents of Capt. Tnttle Confirm n
Seattle, Wash.. May 4.—Sensational re- i
ports of rich placer discoveries in the!
Arctic region, made to Captain Francis j
Tuttle of the revenue cutter Bear by a j
dying sailor, have been confirmed by T. I
W. Wyatt, manager of the Cutter Bear
mining company, organized by Tuttle.
Wyatt wrote from the Arctic district, as
it has been named, in a letter dated Jan.
"There is no use disputing, we have
struck it rich in the Arctic. One man
has just brought in twenty-five pounds of
gold, and I am satisfied that we will have
no trouble next summer in getting all
the money we want. Tomelson says Tut- j
tie Creek will average 75 cents per pan
at bedrock and we have taken out some
pans that range as high as $2.60."
The district is seventy-five miles above
the head of Bering straits. Tomelson
is a miner employed by the company.

SATUKDAY EVENING, MAY 4, 1901.
END 8F CHAPTER NO. I.
TKe sailing of our chartered vessel the "Gen
eral Sigflin," from Seattle on April Bth, loaded
with machinery and equipment for our mines in
Southern Alaska, ends the first chapter in "The
Story of a Gold Mine," which has been running
in these columns from time to time.
We began offering this stock just one short
year ago—and the results of our efforts, in that
period, are without a parallel in mining history.
We have shown the world of investors that an
aggressive, businesslike policy will win in selling
gold mine stock as it will in dealing in any
This boat has on board, two "Giant Hydraul
ics, with a set of duplicate parts for each, so that
in case of accidents to machinery, there will be
no delay; a mammoth steam crane; lumber for
flumes, etc.; blacksmith shop, complete; mules
for pack train; supplies for the men for the en
tire season; tents, hardware, etc.. etc., forming
the most complete equipment ever sent out to
Alaska for placer mining.
Mining engineers, a bonded superintendent,
and men, go in the first steamer to sail and will
arrive at Sunrise City ahead of the "Siglin," ready
to receive her cargo, and rush it up to our prop
erty, which is about eight miles from Sunrise
City— a small haul.
We are going to pay dividends
to our Stockholders this year!
We have the Gold to do it!
CHAPTER NO. 2.
We need more hydraulics, a coasting steamer,
(a steamer making bi-monthly trips would be a
small gold mine in itself), saw mills (lumber is
very high, but it must be had, and every saw mill
would coin money), a general store, completely
stocked; we must plat our townsite "Turnagain
City" and sell lots to incoming people; (a mag
nificent climate awaits settlers, the mean average
temperature in summer being 66 degrees Fahren
heit, and 20 degrees above zero in winter, owing
to the proximity of the warm Japanese current),
and to acquire more claims adjacent to ours,
known to be rich in gold and copper.
All these plans have been mapped out, and we
shall carry them through. We have high aims
for this company. We want to make it one of
the greatest mining companies in America, and
what is more, we will do it.
We are the most aggressive people in the min
It took a year to load boat No. L
We want to load our stuff on
our own boat next time and have
set the limit in which to do it at
And we will do it!
Nothing can stop us, a host of well pleased
share holders are back of us, all of whom are
kept in touch with every importent move we
make, for^this is a gold mine that is to be run on
business lines, and for the benefit of the share
We are all equally interested.
CHAPTER NO. 3.
We have published a book that tells all about
us and our mines,—entitled "FINDINGS FROM
ALASKA" —a book of 64 pages, and we want you,
who read this advertisement, to SEND FOR IT
for if you will do that, we will be very apt to have
It shows conclusively that these 24 claims of
ours are going to prove immensely valuable.
Sending for the book is the first step. After
you have read it, then we want to prove to you,
that we are men of sterling integrity and business
ability who are able to carry out our undertaking
—we have shown that pretty conclusively, so far.
We don't want you to invest a dollar in the
Turn-again Arm Gold Mining Company until you
arc satisfied at every point, that you are making
a wise investment and one that will prove profit
You will be given every facility to find out all
of these things before you come in.
It is a trifle different from most Gold Mine
propositions, —but it is business like —and has
been very successful. It's our way.
Stock Is Now Selling at 15c a Share.
A call at one of our offices, or a letter, will open negotiations.
