happen. His position has undergone
queer changes in the past week. He is
now being supported by Stanilrtiloff s
paper and is promised the backing of all
the anti-Russian elements in the princi
pality if he will abandon his folly of the
past three years and resume his old atti
tude of independence. Whether he will
have the nerve to do this, and still more,
whether Austria will trust him again, re
mains in doubt. It is said that the public
feeling in Bulgaria, which wavered a good
deal at the time of Stambuloff's murder, is
bow running strongly against the Russian
party delegation, which saw the Czar and
came back with obscure talk about bap
tizing the infant Prince Boris in the ortho
dox faith with the probability that Russia
would accept him' as a ruler.
This is recognized as a mere device to
get Prince Ferdinand to abdicate in his
son's favor, when Russia will turn round
and laugh at the idea that Prince Boris
could inherit rights which his father never
possed and improve the pretext for inter
vention which this state of anarcy would
Something like a sensation was raised
for a day or two by reports from Vienna
that the meeting of the Austrian Emperor,
the King of Roumanla and the German
and Austrian Chancellors portended imme
diate action in the Balkans. It was even
said that the Kin? of Roumania had not
only joined the triple alliance, but stood
ready to march in troops to occupy Bul
garia and perhaps annex it bodily, while
Austria overran Macedonia. These alarms
have died away again and would hardly be
worth recording, save as further signs of
perturbation all over the Continent.
The assemblage of the new Parliament
next Monday excites small attention and
no curiosity. Anything like a declaration
of policy is not looked for, and whatever in
terest may be aroused will be strictly of the
personal sort. I understand the radicals
will raise the question of Henry M. Stan
ley's nationality; they have an idea that he
is a naturalized American citizen. Another
like case will probably arise in Ireland, but
these rarely amount to anything, because a
born British subject can always resume
that state by formally declaring his inten
tion to do so.
The Irish Parliamentary party has a
meeting at 3 o'clock Tuesday. Inasmuch
as no members of it will be in London till
Monday, the proceedinss must be a matter
of pure speculation. That there will be a
sharp row seems inevitable. I hear that
Timothy Healy intends proposing Sexton
as a candidate against McCarthy, but I
have no knowledge of the fact or of any
thing else that they are going to do. The
understanding is that Healy's strength in
the party is about as it was in the last Par
liament, but is likely to be strengthened
later by three gains in the bye elections.
From very small beginnings in the Rus
sian province of Volhynia. cholera has
Buddenly made an expanding break in
several directions, notably to the south
and west. Various dispatches from
Cracow, Lemberg and other points show
that it is spreading rapidly in Austrian
Poland. Still more circumstantial stories
come from Northern Russia, where the
epidemic has reached the vicinity of Kief
and even, it is rumored, in the city itself.
This entire section, including Odessa and
the Crimea, has been suffering from ex
traordinary heat. During the prolonged
drought springs were dried up, crops were
burned, the cattle are dying of thirst and
the conditions are most favorable for the
ravages of the contagion. The death rate
in Odessa for the last six weeks was more
than double the usual summer rate, even
as it is, and the citizens are in mortal
terror lest the cholera add to their woes.
Kai'er Wiihelm's stay at Cowes this year
has been, by comparison, an extremely
quiet affair. He was deeply annoyed last
summer at the remarKably mixed crowd
that the Prince of Wales had around him
there, and especially resented having per
sons thrust upon him at dinners and
luncheons who could not have possibly
ever got in the same room with him at
I am afraid that these people who
aroused his imperial dislike were not in
variably of European birth. At any rate
this season is quite unique in the history
of yachting at Cowes for the scarcity of
Americans and the lists of guests at the
various entertainments and gatherings of
royalty, which last year read like a report
of Narragansett Pier arrivals, this time
contained scarcely a single trans-Atlantic
name. The same thing is noticeable in the
big house party announced for Lowther
castle next week during the Emperor's
stay. It is all English, exclusive of the
aristocratic set which has never had any
thing to do with a merchant. Lowther
castle itself, though not so famous in the
guide books as many other histories, is» one
of the most wonderful places in England,
with a stately terrace a mile in length over
looking a magnificent mountain gorge and
a vast panorama of wild northern scenery.
Kaiser Wiihelm's five days there will be
devoted to grouse shooting.
The hardship of gentlemen having to be
in London Monday and most of next week
K)f ; j& opening of Parliament while their
mdre fortunate fellows are opening the
grouse season is treated quite respectfully
by the press as a genuine grievance, and
has incidentally brought out much more
grouse literature in the press than usual.
It seems that the predictions of last winter,
that the exceptional severity of the past
cold would hurt the birds, nave been en
tirely falsified. There never were so many
grouse in such splendid condition as are
now awaiting Monday's battle. This is
explained by the theory that the better
•weather and deep snow killed the weak
birds and forced the others to scatter
widely over the country in search of food,
with the result of a great infusion of new
blood in various districts. The fashion of
shooting over dogs on August 12, which
involved the slaughter of young birds and
was in full vogue a dozen years ago, has
now absolutely gone out. The present
custom is driving with beaters, which
brings the old birds first over the butts to
be killed.
It seem to have been actually settled in
Russia to stop using Siberia as a penal col
ony. Turavieff, Minister of Justice, an
nounces that hereafter no ordinary crimi
nals will be transported thence, but only
convicts belonging to the nobility or the
professions, and they will be confined to
the remotest northern regions. The expe
rience of England with her earlier penal
settlements is quoted by him in justifica
tion of this attempt to give to Siberia a
new character and attract to it free colo
nists. Harold Fredkeic.

LONDON, Exg , Aug. 10.— The steamer

Success of the Big War
Celebrations in
Wreaths Placed on the Graves
of the Fallen French With
Kind Words.
Some Socialistic Leaders, However,
Objected to the Popular Demon
FERLIN, Germany, Au>>. 10.— The war
celebrations that have taken place this
week have been complete successes to all
the German States where they were held.
This proves the realness of ttie popular en
thusiasm for German unity; Daily daMD
strations occurred in front of the Niodcr
wald monument at Rudesheim. On Thurs
day 100 delegates from the veteran socie
ties of Dortmund and Hoerdt deposited on
the base of the statue a huge laurel wreath
and palm branches.
Major Harz then delivered a fiery patri
otic speech to the veterans and the crowd
that had assembled to witness the cere
mony, and he was frequently interrupted
by applause. One hundred and fifty dele
gates from the Saxony Chasseurs and in
fantry societies deposited six huge oak
wreaths at the foot of the statue, after
which they gave cheers for the Emperor,
the empire and Prince Bismarck.
The town of Tuebingen celebrated the
battle of Woerth by a field service in the
cemetery and a procession in the market
place. The Rev. Mr. Gemmler, rector of
the university, delivered a speech. The
celebration was attended by all the pro
fessors of the university, the officers of the
garrison and members of the various soci
eties and guilds of the town. In the even
ing a banquet was given at the museum,
salutes were fired and the town was illum
inated. Professor Phliedeirer, in a speech,
said that the Bavarian veterans' generous
act at the beginning of the celebrations
was everywhere approved. They, in the
midst of a great crowd, had deposited a
beautiful laurel wreath on the tomb of the
French soldiers killed in 1870 and 1871 and
buried at Munich. The secretary of the
veterans, in depositing the wreath, said:
"I place this laurel wreath in the names
of the veterans on the tomb of the French
soldiers. They, too, fought and died for
their fatherland. They doubtless were our
enemies, but in death there is neither en
emy nor friend. We pray In silence for
Berlin alone has taken no spirited part
in the celebrations. The socialist leaders
are greatly displeased, seeing that great
numbers of socialist workmen elsewhere
are taking part in the celebrations. They
think that the patriotic demonstrations
will result in a slackenine of the work
men's allegiance to the party and
in weakening party discipline. Ac
cording to the North German Gazette the
socialist leaders have organized a system
of spies to prevent socialists from taking
part in the celebrations.
The Berlin Chamber of Commerce has
issued its report for 1894. The general
state of business is discovered as unfavor
able except in certain branches. It says
the public showed a marked tendency to
buy cheap and ' inferior goods, which re
sults in a depression of prices. Trade has
had to deal with many troubles, including
the tariff and monetary policy of the
United States, the social antagonism be
tween employers and employed, and the
agrarian movements, but the increase of
the bourse tax did not have the permanent
depressing effect that was expected en ac
count of the plethora of capital.
The last census of Berlin, showing that
the city does not contain near as many in
habitants as it was supposed it did, has
caused the shopkeepers to shake their
heads and to remark that formerly the
population rose from 50,000 to 60,000
yearly, while now it is nearly stationary.
It appears to be hopeless for Berlin to
overtake Paris, which is now 800,000 ahead
in population. Vienna is pressing Berlin
closely, while St. Petersburg has pro
gressed more rapidly than the German
capital. In Berlin there are now more
than 45,000 apartments without tenants.
The political portion of the German
press is devoted largely to a discussion of
Germany's relations with Great Britain,
which do not improve, despite the acces
sion of Lord Salisbury to the British pre
miership. The anti-British feeling has
been growing here since 1894, when Lord
Rosebery's policy toward Russia was re
garded as an attempt to procure the polit
ical isolation of Germany. It is Great
Britain's treatment of smaller questions,
especially colonial matters, that Germany
complains of. The Samoan questions and
questions pertaining to several districts in
Africa which are pending between the two
countries are serious to Germany. Unless
Great Britain shows a good will to meet
Germany half way she must be prepared
for her share of reprisals.
The German press unanimously ex
presses indignation at the articles that
have recently appeared in the English
press. The papers here say that Great
Britain is much mistaken if she thinks she
can make a catspaw out of Germany.
The Hon. Theodore Runyon, the Ameri
can Embassador, returned to Berlin to-day
from Baden and will resume the duties of
his office on Monday. Mrs. and Miss
Runyon have not yet returned.
Mrs. de Kay, wife of the American
Consul-General, and Miss Gilder of New
York have gone to take the sea baths at

overwork. He has been resting at Harz
burg and has now entirely recovered. He
will return to Berlin on August 17 and

stone of the i&nperor William I memorial.

has informed the professors that restric

at the medical lectures at the university.

from himself or the Minister of Education.
Suspected Plotters Treated in a JUott
Inhuman Manner.
[Special Correspondence of the United Press.]
BARRANQUILLA, Colombia, July 15.—
A few weeks ago a case of the olii-time
"Inquisition" was instituted in this city,
in free Colombia. A number of Govern
m<?nt officials allege that they had infor
mation of a new conspiracy against the
clerical Government, the Caro Govern
ment. The history of this latest Sparish-
American outrage stripped of minor de
tails is as follows: A native woman in
whom a man had confided informed the
local authorities that she knew of localities
in which arms were concealed; that the
hiding places were in and near this city.
Her information led to the instant arrest
of a number of people.
A search was instituted by the local
authorities, and rifles were found in a
number of localities. Then the Govern
ment took a hand in the matter, when
n:ore arrests were made. Rewards were
offered, and a systematic inquiry was set
on foot. While" the above was proceeding
a number of "suspects" were tortured in
true Spanish-American fashion, under
circumstances of barbaric cruelty. They
were tortured to extort confessions im
plicating others. Some were hung up by
the feet, head down. Others were lifted
by their heads by means of a broad board
having a central aperture for the head.
The ends of the board were hoisted by
ropes until the whole weight of the body
of the victim rested on the sharp edges of
the central aperture, the toes just touching
the ground. While suspended repeated
flogjrings were given.
Altogether ten or twelve persons under
went more or less torture. Some of the
most prominent citizens here sent a joint
memorial to the Minister of the Interior
asking if the tortures practiced were
authorized by the Caro or National
Government. The memorial led to the
ending of this new reign of terror.
Long Tramp of Aged Frederick
Siagel and His Fond
A Pension Ciaim That Caused the
Old Soldier to Suffer Great
WASHINGTON, D. 0., Aug. 10.— An
aged couple trudging along Pennsylvania
avenue and followed by a crowd of boys
proved to be Frederick and Jane Siagel,
who had tramped all the way from Van
derburg County, Ind. They had received
notice from Washington that Frederick
Slagel's pension claim would require his
presence here, and the aged pair, being
poor and without railroad transportation,
set out to walk the entire distance. They
started on May 12 last.
The farmers along the way were very
kind to them and everywhere they were
treated hospitably, except in one instance.
Italian laborers stoned them out of a small
raining town in Pennsylvania. Near Har
risburg they expected to meet kinsfolk, as
Frederick blagel had lived there before the
war, but as they walked into the village
they found everything sadly changed and
were greeted only by barking dogs. The
old fellow had half expected to meet some
of his brothers and sisters, but they had
died many years before.
Upon their arrival in Washington the
Id people were given the guest chamber
at the police station. The matron fur
nished them a nice hot supper, that being
the only food they had tasted for many
hours. The old man's feet were badly
swollen and his wife's were also much
blistered. But they both knelt by the iron
bedstead in earnest prayer, and after
prayer, man and wife, who have lived to
gether two score years, united their weak
and trembling voices in that touching
Christian song which commences "I will
sing you a song of that beautiful land, the
faraway home of the soul."
They appeared to be supremely happy,
notwithstanding their adverse circum
stances, and after transacting their busi
ness here will set out upon their return
trip, being provided with transportation
as far as Harrisburg.
Discovery of the Remains of
"Dutch BUI," an Early
In the Seventies He Became
Hated and Was Murdered at
WICHITA, Ka*s., Aug. 10.— An old
murder mystery was solved to-day by the
finding of the remains of a human skull
and an old tobacco-box of unique construc
tion in the cotton-wood grove between
First and Second streets, on the Arkansas
River, where the bank had been washed
away by the recent high waters.
The box, which is fashioned out of
horn, has been positively identified by
Fred Sowers, who edited the .Wichita
Vidette in the early seventies, as having
belonged to a United States Marshal who
went by the name of "Dutch Bill."
"Dutch Bill" began his career as a Mar
shal when Wichita was only a little fron
tier town, and he was a terror to the evil
doers of that time. Frequent attempts
were made to assassinate him. and in May,
1871, his enemies inveigled him into a sa
loon while he was tipsy.
That was the last seen of him, and it
had always Deen believed that he was mur
dered. To-day's grewsome find establishes
the fact beyond question.

excitement and bit three persons. They
are : Jacob Smith of 9CM> Wellington street,
Mrs. Frank Kerz of 1002 Wellington street
and Annie Bales of Wellington street, who
was bitten in the right arm. The wounds
were cauterized.

CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 10.— From present
indications racing with booking will be
resumed at an early date on both the Chi
cago tracks— Hawthorne and Harlem. For
three days "handbooks" have been openly
made on the latter track, and to-day the
pencilers put tables and chairs in the ring
for their own comfort. It was rumored that
the Civic Federation would raid the track
to-day, which kept the Saturday crowd
down to small propertions. The raid was
not made, however. The racing to-day
was a marked improvement over the pre

Record* and Bone» Broken at the Chicago
CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 10.— At the sec
ond day's meeting of the National circuit
tournament Eddie Bald broke anotner
world's competitive record, riding a third
of a mile in 41 2-5 seconds. The attend
ance, was much larger than yesterday, but
the weather was uot so favorable for pace
making, the wind blowing steadily from
the west most of the afternoon. John
Lawson, in attempting to break the mile
record of P. J. Titus of New York, fell,
breaking his collarbone and bruising him
self badly. In the three-mile handicap
Harry Palmer was thrown, and remained
unconscious for sometime. The third of
a mile open race, class B, was won oy
Bald after a very close finish in 42 1-5 sec
onds. Cooper of Detroit was leading until
within ten yards of the tape, when Bald
came with a rush and snatched the vic
tory. In the second heat Bald rode the
distance in 41 2-5, one-filth of a second less
than the former record, held by F.
Thatcher of Salt Lake City.

the crack bicycle rider of Portland, who

fatal accident on the track this afternoon.

other, and was thrown violently to the
ground. His head struck a small pebble,
indenting his skull.

Indian Territory Sports Would

Fitzsimmons Fight.
Ardmore a Strong Bidder and Will-
Ing to Tak« the Mill From
Dallas, Texas.
WICHITA, Kans., Aug. 10.— Since the
declaration of Governor Culberson and the
Attorney-General of Texas that the Cor
bett-Fitzsimmons fight shall not take place
in that State, the sporting fraternity of
Ardmore, Ind. T., are making a strong
effort to have the fight pulled off at that
James Kilgore of the Territorial Court,
ex-Congressman from Texas, has given as
his opinion that the Territory statutes do
not prohibit prizefighting, and the pros
pect of the fight coming off in the Indian
Territory has aroused Ardmore citizens to
the highest pitch of excitement.
If the Territory is to be the battle-ground
Ardmore is a strong candidate for selection
as the place to have the fight. The dis
tance is only a few hours from Dallas and
the sporting fraternity there is prepared to
receive the gladiators and their friends with
open arms. As far as known no other
town is such a strong bidder. There is no
known law to prevent it taking place in
the Territory.
Will Import More Negroes.
PRINCETON, 111., Aug. 10.— The ten
colored policemen sworn in yesterday have
been on duty all day in the vicinity of No.
3 shaft and as a result there has been no
disturbance. It would appear from events
that have taken place yesterday and to-day
that the coal company has a plan prevent
ing the further attempt to drive the col
ored people out of the city, and that the
plan is to import colored miners from other
places in such numbers that they will be a
protection in themselves. By this method,
which is believed to a be a solution of the
present problem, the need of a force of
armed special policemen will be required
but a short time.
The Orkney Election.
LONDON, Eno., Aug 10.— The result of
the last election held in Orkney and Shet
land was announced to-day. Sir L. Lyall,
Liberal candidate, who sat in the last Par

ist. The composition of the new Parlia
ment which opens on Monday will be as
follows: Conservatives 338, Liberal-
Unionists 73, Liberals 177, Anti-Parneilite«
70, Parnellites 122. This gives the Govern
ment, including Liberal-Unionists, 411
seats and the opposition 259, a Govern
ment majority of 151.

Judge Hopewell Decided
Against the Old
The New Fire and Police Com

Mayor Bemls Said to Be Disposed
to Resist the Ruling by
OMAHA, Nebp.., Aug. 10.— Intense ex
citement prevailed in the city this morning
and afternoon over the announcement that
Judge Hopewell's decision in the injunc
tion suit would be given this afternoon.
The streets were crowded, people standing
in knots and discussing the question which
has excited 60 much interest during the
last ten days.
At an early hour courtroom No. 1 was
filled until the crowd lined the corridors
and s f airs. The interest was so intense
that the strictest silence prevailed as
Judge Hopewell ascended the bench and
prepared to read his decision. The prin
cipal part of the opinion Is:
"In the light of the decisions the de
fendants appointed as Fire and Police
Commissioners under the iaw of 1895, now
in force, must be held to have the appar
ent right and to be entitled prima facie to
the offices in question. Buch being the
case a court of equity will not restrain
them from claiming such offices or from
proceeding in a peaceable and lawful man
ner to obtain possession thereof.
"It has been suggested in argument that
if the injunction prayed for is not granted
there is danger of a conflict between the
contending parties to the detriment of
peace and good order. There is no allega
tion in the petition that defendants will
use force and violence or other than lawful
means to gain possession and the court
will not assume that it will be done. On
the contrary, I have too much confidence
in the people of Omaha to believe that
such a test vi et armis will occur. Should
anything of the kind happen, the respon
sibility will lie with those who incite or
precipitate it, and I take occasion here to
say that, notwithstanding what is herein
expressed as to the right of defendants to
the possession and occupancy of the offices
in question, the plaintiffs have the right to
remain peaceably in possession and to ex
ercise the functions of said offices until
otherwise ordered in a proper legal pro
The old board haß nothing to do but to
retire and submit to the law. It is re
ported that this course will be pursued by
Mr. Brown at least. Mayor Bemis and
Commissioner Beaver are reported as dis
posed to resist by violence.
The decision was received with loud
cheers, which were, however, quickly sup
pressed by the bailiffs, and the crowd dis
persed. The members of the new boord
were immediately surrounded by their
friends and warmly congratulated.
In anticipation of a movement aeainst
the police station to seize possession
thereof in the event of a decision favorable
to the new board, the old board to-day
called into service seventy-five special po
licemen and thirty regular officers to guard
the station.
Commissioner Broatch of the new board
said this afternoon that nothing would be
done of an official nature by the board be
fore Monday. It was the intention, he
said, of the board to proceed cantiously
and carefully, and to act with deliberation.
No violence is expected and the city is
thoroughly peaceful, contrary to tne lurid
reports of the Associated Press.

NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 10.— A special
to a morning paper from Bar Harbor, Me.,
says: "In the selection of the next nomi
nee for President I propose to take an
active part, but I am not a candidate my
self," said William C. Whitney to-day.
Asked as to other candidates Mr. Whitney
"As to other candidates? Events of the
next twelve months will develop them.
You know we begin and finish the making
of a candidate for President with marvel
ous celerity in this country. The occasion
brings the roan. Mr. Cleveland was him
self the most striking instance of this.
Our Presidential candidates that win
usually loom quickly on the horizon not
too long before they are called for by the
"I know absolutely nothing about Mr.
Cleveland's intentions, but it is very
strongly my opinion that in the next
twelve months Mr. Cleveland will grow in
public esteem. He is now necessarily the
only bulwark against Republican extrava
gance in Congress and I think he will
make a record of it.
"As for the third terra, I can only say
this: If you went among the Democrats of
the country and could ask every actual
Democratic voter whom he really preferred
for President, wholly apart from any con
sideration of the feasibility or propriety of
a third term, I think the majority of them
would tell you that they preferred Mr.
Cleveland to any other man as President.
I cannot conceive that anything, except,
perhaps, a practically unanimous call,
would induce him again to be a candidate,
although in my jugdment he is more popu
lar to-day than ever he was."
Work of White fiend*.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Aug. 10.-A
special from Gadsden, Ala., says: Early
this morning three unknown white men
approached the residence of Mrs. Julia
Reardon, living twelve miles from here.
Mr 3. Rsardon, her 16-year-old daughter
and an infant were in "the house. After
entering the house the men seized the
child and holding it aloft dashed it to the
floor, crushing it to death. They then
dragged the mother and daughter out in
the front yard and assaulted tHem. Mrs.
Reardon is not expected to live.

The Difference Between Advertising Doc- . -
tors and Doctors Who Advertise. • '-
The Copelaml Medical Institute Main-
tains the 85 a Month Bate 1 at 910
Market Street, Despite the Enmity
of. Certain Doctors and Druggists.
A lady who recently placed herself under
treatment with Drs. Copeland, Neal and Winn
"I never would think of going to advertising
doctors. I never did such a thine, in my life,
but my brother, who is a doctor himself, ad-
vised me to consult Drs. Copeland, Neal and
Winn, and I followed his advice."
To sptTak with entire frankness the lady was
right in her opinion of "Advertising Doctors,"
so-called, and the sentiment which she holds
by no means alone. has good cause.
"We have no fault to find with the sentiment.
The term "advertising doctor*," as she used it,
and as it is used by intelligent and sensible
people, includes the whole wide range of un-
scrupulous, unprincipled and disreputable
The phrase "advertising doctors" has been
for years, and is still to a great txtent a syno-
nym - for quackery in its worst phases, and we
do not blame sensible, thinking and intelligent
people for steering clear of it.
Drs. Copeland, Neal and Winn wish, however,
to make one point very clear and very distinct:
There are "advertising doctors" and doctors
who advertise, and there is a wide difference.
Advertising doctors, in the first place, are,
as a rule, no doctors at all. The large majority
of them have never seen the inside of a medi-
cal college.
Under the head of Advertising Doctors are
included ail that class of unprincipled and un-
scrupulous, men— usually uneducated and ig-
norant — who prey upon the sick and unfor-
tunate. Tr.eir ways are only too well known
to need description. They are often transient,
traveling from place to place, irresponsible
and unprincipled. As a rule they promise mir-
acles, and by their cunning and plausibility,
extort large sums of money from the poorer
classes and those who can least . afford to be
robbed. ' .
There are "Advertising Doctors," and adver-
tising doctors as the term is used means fakirs.
There are doctors who advertise, and in this .. *j
class are those genuine physicians and special-
ists who have fulfilled all the regular require-
ments of medical study and practice, who have
passed through the usual course of medical
college and hospital study, and who have de-
voted their lives to certain lines of practice,
confining themselves to these special . lines. .
Their experience and their study -have given
them special and pre-eminent skill in them,
and they choose the daily papers as a means of
letting the public know their specialties and
their success. As conscientious physicians and
a3 honorable men they believe in advertising.
First in this class of doctors who advertise
their specialties are Drs. Copeland, Neal and
Winn. They state to the public some of the
results of their work— their loca ion— their
specialties. Their credentials, which chal-
lenge denial, are before the people.
They say to the public from the basis of
printed columns containing many testimonials
from well-known men and women in this com-
munity: "This is the work we do. These are
the results we accomplish. We ask to be
Judged by them."
Showing: What a Short Course of the
Copeland Treatment Will Do.
Mrs. M. C. Gilson, an elderly laay, formerly
a resident of Prescott, Ariz/, but now living at
217 Francisco street, speaking of her experi-
ence with the Copeland treatment, says:
Mrs. M. C. Gilson, 217 Fsancisco Street.
"I cannot find words appropriate to express
my satisfaction and gratitude for the results of
a short course of treatment for catarrh at the
Copeland Medical Institute. I suffered terribly
from catarrh for over five years. My . hearing
was impaired and I lost all sense of smell. My
ni'ge was always stopped up, mucus accumu-
lated in my throat, and, to make a long story
short, I had all the symptoms of the disease. I
consulted with my friends, but they all thought
that treatment would do me no good owing to
my advanced age. I called on Drs. Copeland,
Neal and Winn and placed myself under their
treatment. It was but a short time until I
could hear and smell, and now . I am safe
in saying that I am a well woman again. Their
treatment is wonderful, as the results in my '
case are but little short of miraculous.' I
earnestly advise all sufferers to go to the Cope-
land Medical Institute if they want to be
For those desiring the treatment by mail tha
first step is to drop a line to Drs. Copeland, Neal
and Winn for a question list or symptom blank.
Return same with answers filled out and treat-
ment may ba commenced at once. Every mail
brings additional proof of the success of the
mail treatment.
