FOR THE CONVENTION
The Committee on Promotion
Will Gather Here
GOOD SPEECHES BILLED.
Representatives Will Be Present
From All Over the
COLLECTORS READY FOR WORK.
Every Citizen Who Has the Future of
California at Heart Will Add
to the Fund.
The machinery built up by the people to
furnish the horse-sense power to bring the
next Republican Convention to the City of
San Francisco is now in motion, and we
■will soon be able to bring sufficient pres
sure to bear on the National committee
men to secure the prize.
The finance committee, the executive
committee and the recently appointed
collectors have begun to work, and to-day
in the Chamber of Commerce the com
mittee on promotion will organize and
a operations. This committee is made
U9 of people from all parts of the State,
and was formed for the purpose of bring
ing the representatives of all the cities and
towns together, so that the best possible
variety of opinions could be beard.
The coming of the convention to this
City means something to every town and
hamlet on the coast, and it is well that the
whole State should be represented in the
committee of promotion. It is likely that
other cities in this State have something
interesting to offer the delegates, and at
the meeting to-day these points will in all
probability be brought out.
It is expected that some very telling
speeches will be made and that the great
number of suggestions that will of neces
sity be brought, forth will have a good ef
fect on the committee already formed.
Chairman Eastonof the executive commit
tee and Chairman Pond of the finance
committee are eager to learn the feeling of
the entire State, and no better opportun-
ity will present itself than that offered to
All day yesterday the members of the
committee on promotion were arriving in
the City, and as there are 100 of them it is
probable that some will come in to-day.
From the appearance of things now it
looks as though there would be at least 90
per cent of the appointed or hand to give
their views and talk for their respective
This is very encouraging to the gentle
men who selected the delegates, and it
looks very much as though the proposi
tion of holding the Republican Conven
tion in this City has spread a very satis
factory feeling of unity on that point all
over the State and coast.
At least seventy of the members of the
promotion committee are from the interior
towns and they will have something sound
to offer for the proposition. Such con
certed action was never before witnessed
in the State of California, and it is beyond
a doubt the foundation of a future from
which Californians will profit.
The action of the people on this particu
lar case shows what can be done by all
pulling together and working for the com
mon good of the whole State. The at
tendant benefits are apparent to the
inhabitants of California, and like one
man they have all donned the harness and
are pulling together.
Yesterday Secretary Litchfield delivered
the collectors their credentials, and the
money will soon come rolling in. The
greater part of to-day, aside from the time
occupied by the meeting at the Chamber
of Commerce, will be spent in preliminary
work leading up to laying out the territory
ailoted the collectors. They will become
identified with the occupation of gathering
the money for tbe fund, and all sorts of
contributions, both large and small, will
Ever since the proposition of holding
the convention here was suggested by The
Call the people of this City have shown a
marked desire to do their share of the
work, and it is to be hoped that they will
not hesitate now to do all in their power
to finish the good work so far carried on
without discomfort or inconvenience, and
that when the collector appears the re
sponse will be liberal and immediate.
If the promises of a great many of San
Francisco's public-spirited men goes for
anything the fund will be increased to the
extent of several thousand dollars by to
night. Citizens, professional men and cor
porations of all kinds have agreed to name
an amount when the collectors appointed
by the finance committee come to them for
All occupations will be benefited by the
convention being held in this City, and no
sensible man will require urging to make
him see it. "We Lave a vast and productive
territory in the great "West to exhibit to
the stranger, and the more we can get here
the better it wiil be for California and the
To-day there is nearly $100,000 already
guaranteed, counting that subscribed by
other cities and people outside of San Fran
cisco, all of which is capable of collection
and which is, by the way, a most satisfactory
amount for the finance committee to begin
with. No other aspirant En the fight has
touched the figures named by San Fran
cisco, and we have more to come yet.
Pittsbnrg, the only city that we had
any cause to fear in this matter, has about
decided that it is impossible to accommo
date the crowd there, and Boston has
given up the contest entirely. Chicago
has suffered the distress of local dissension
over the relative political standing of her
supporters, and New York will not be
considered by even one of the prominent
liational cornmitteemen. The opposition
«c San Francisco and her geographical
■Huation has been removed, and since it
has been found that it will be possible to
telegraph all the news necessary over the
wires running out of this City we have
trampled on every barrier that has been
built up against us.
itional committeemen who were rather
reticent regarding their choice are now
•peoly proclaiming that San Francisco is
the most available and logical place for
holding the next Republican National
The question of railroad fares is as good
as settled, and while the Western Passen
ger Association, with quarters at Chicago,
has not yet been hearfl from, those who
are in a position to know say there will be
no trouble from tnat point. There are too
many issues at stake in the development
of the Western country to have any sub
stantial opposition from the East.
We nave about convinced the National
Committee that it would do a wise thing
to recognize the coast with, something in
the shape of commendation, and when a
vote is taken it will be seen that we have
not been found wanting.
UNDERSTANDS THE CASE.
The San Jose JS'etr.i Jiensotm Wisely Re
garding thr. Convention-
Under the caption of "Our Part of the
Load," the San Jose News aives the fol
lowing piece of good advice that is worth
If it is possible to bring the Republican
National Convention to this coast the work
that is bein * done, and that is proposed to be
done, by the people of San Francisco, will ac
complish that result. They recognize the fact
that machinery will not run without lubrica-
tion; that w>rk of the character they have in
hand cannot be performed without money and
plenty of it. There should be a large working
capital behind the effort— large enough to
meet every anticipated expense, and a liberal
surplus to jaeet extraordinary conditions.
From present appearances this will be done.
The city seems to be properly aroused to a
full realization of the importance of the occa
sion, and there is every reason to hope that
their united effort will be successful.
Santa Clara County has also an interest in
this matter, fully as important as San Fran
cisco. We will, of course, not have the crowd
here that there will be there, and the transient
money left here will not be so large in amount.
But for perma:.ent benefit this county stands
in a position to receive its full share. The low
rates that will Is offered by the railroad com
panies will induce thousands to come to Cali
fornia who will never make this trip under
ordinary circur stances.
Above all things they will want to see the
orchards and v.neyards on which our fame
rests in these latter days. San Jose is in a
position to catca the overflow. We are near
San Francisco and the means of communica
tion are ample, quick and convenient. With a
fairly energetic effort on our part we can in
duce nearly every one who comes to attend the
convention to pay us a visit.
Our people are, no doubt, sufficiently wide
awake to their direct interest in having the
convention meet in San Francisco and are
willing to do what they can to secure the re
sult. Many valuable enterprises have failed
through the people depending on somebody
else to do the work. There is a disposition
already apparent in this community to permit
San Francisco to light out the battle feingle
These people argue that the bay city will do
the work alone if 6he is compelled to. But
this is a selfisn feeling and one that has lost us
a good many opportunities in the past. It is
to be hoped that it will not control the present
situation. There ought to be some expression
by the people of i-auta Clara County. To get
this expression there should be a mass-meeting
of citizens to talk tie matter over, to deter
mine how much interest we have in the event
and to ascertain whtvt would be the fair thing
for us to do. Everything that will pay should
be taken up.
COLONELS IN NEW DANGER
Fourteen Companies May Soon
Be Mustered Out of the
The Full Financial Allowances Accom-
panied by Grave Threats From
When Governor Budd, Adjutant-Gen
eral Barrett and the other members of the
Board of Militar}' Auditors decided the
other day to pay the National Guard com
panies their quarterly financial allow
ances they incidentally threatened to
make things interesting for the colonels
and captains within a very short time.
This forewarning of trouble has caused no
end of uneasiness intLe City armories, and
every one realizes that the National Guard
of California is in tbe throes of another
and more complete reorganization.
The colonels are particularly troubled.
In the recent elimination of a few brigade
organizations and companies the City
colonels managed to hold on to their
eagles by proposing to accept from the
State $75 a month per company. The
company commanders, rating money sev
eral degrees above colonels, vigorously
objected. The Governor and his military
board withheld the money until yester
day. For a month and a half the organ
izations had been bankrupt. Company
captains, armory and company commit
tees, armorers and innumerable outside
creditors registered a combined and en
thusiastic kick. Finally the board gave
in. The company captains won, and now
the regimental commanders are called to
At their session the Board of Military
Auditors threatened one of two things — the
dismounted companies must agree to ac
cept $75 instead of $100 a month for their
maintenance or fourteen National Guard
organizations will have to be thrown out
of the service. There are now sixty-eight
companies in the guard. The appropri
ation, reduced by the last Legislature, will
only support about fifty-four companies at
$100 a month. The company commanders
will insist on receiving tin; full allowance,
and this means that the militia must be
reduced in size. If one or two companies
are taken from the regimental organiza
tions the office of colonel will go with
Governor Budd and Adjutant-General
Barrett have already discussed the matter
of disbanding several of the San Francisco
companies, making battalinns of the regi
ments or one stroiiir regiment and a single
battalion. Of all military stations in the
State this City will feel tie strike of the
lightning most severely. The Board of
Location is still convinced that San Fran
cisco has too many companies.
A National Guard officer said yesterday:
"The reorganization will iiave to be re
sumed. The captains of Companies were
never consulted about reduced allowances
and now that they have Yon their tight
with the colonels before the Board of
Auditors, they will undoubtedly refuse to
acrept $75 a month for the iakc of saving a
colonel his job. There sefcms to be but
one thing to do with the companies here.
This is to throw out one nciment, make
two regiments of eight companies each,
give the Second Artillery's ?>"apa company
to the Fifth Infantry, and tins make'that
also an eight-company regiment. But.
whatever they do, tnere is trouble ahead
You may depend upon it Uiat within a
month or two the Governor and his gene
rals will begin to stir things i n this City.
The companies here were never in so
much danger as now, and I'll not much of
a prophet if San Francisco is not given the
grandest shake-up in the h:story of the

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1895.
A Grandson Wearing the Man
tle of a Noted Church
DESCENDANTS OF A GREAT CLAN
Life Labors of the Illustrious Pioneer
Preacher in the Western Wil
The new pastor of the First Christian
Church on Twelfth -street, Rev. Robert. M.
Campbell, who lately arrived from Ken
tucky, is not only a true son, or rather
grandson, of that church, but can trace a
direct descent in that Scottish clan Camp
bell. His grandfather, Alexander Camp
bell, wa9 the founder of the Christian, or
as it is often called, the "Campbellite"
The pastor of the Twelfth-street church
was educated at Bethany College, West
Virginia, which his grandparent organized
and presided over as its first president.
Alexander Campbell was born in
Alexander Campbell, Pounder of the
County Antrim, Ireland, in 1788, and
brought up in the rigid government of the
Presbyterian church. His mother's an
cestors were French Huguenots who tied
from France upon the revocation of the
edict of Nantes by Louis XIV. His
father Thomas Campbell was a cousin and
classmate in college of the poet Thomas
Campbell and the close confidant of the
youthful rhymer in the first nights of his
genius. In 1808 young Alexander Camp
bell set sail for America, but before the
vessel left the harbor of Londonderry she
was wrecked, and the future founder of a
new sect almost lost his life.
He there devoted himself to the minis
try and. soon after entered Glasgow Uni
versity. Upon graduation he again sailed
for America, arriving safely in the land cf
the great West.
He located in Pennsylvania and soon
began to propound the doctrines that now
distinguish the church associated with
A close adherence to the teachings of the
Bible without regard to peculiar creeds
was his belief. He first allied himself
with the Baptists, but his advocacy upon
matters other than the subject of immer
sion soon forced him out of that church,
and with the earnest preacher went a large
This was the origin of the Christian
church, and its membership quickly
spread over the Western States.
His life as an evangelist was the usual
arduous labors of the country "circuit
rider"— those pioneer preachers who did so
much to blaze the way for civilization in
its grand march through the western
wilds. While engaged in this work he
published many books upon religious dis
cussions, one especially, the "Harbinger,"
running through forty volumes. He was
a thorough scriptural scholar, and his
works show a deep knowledge embracing
every branch of theological lore.
When he founded Bethany College, in
1840, his followers numbered hundreds of
thousands, and at the present time that
church has a membership of over a million.
He died March 4, 18«6, at Bethany, about
five months before his grandson, Robert
M. Campbell, was born. Mrs. Alexander
Campbeli, aged 95, is still living.
The minister of the Twelfth-street Cnris
tian Church is not the only relative of the
illustrious pioneer preacher in this City.
Police Judge Campbell is a cousin of
Robert M. Campbell, as is also Attorney
E. L. Campbell. Junge Campbell's father
was a minister, and the Judge himself was
especially set apart to wear the mantle of
the great Alexander. He chose law in
stead of divinity, and the grandson, Rob
ert, donned the cloth.
Rev. Mr. Campbell enters into his Cali
fornia field with enthusiasm, and already
the young minister has infused a spirit of
new life into the church. There will be a
union meeting of all the Christian societies
of this City, Oakiand and Alameda
Thanksgiving day, when measures will be
taken to begin a combined effort for reli
gious advancement in this church. What
Alexander Campbell did in a comparative
wilderness Robert Campbell believes may
at least be imitated in civilization and
among the churches.
MADE MANY SKYSCRAPERS
The San Franciscos Bat Comis-
key's Pitching With Mar
Straus Plays by Himself Till He Makes
a Three-Bagger in the Sixth
Balls flew in every direction at Central
Park yesterday. Neither Harper for the
home team nor Comiskey for the Oaklands
gave much mystery to their curves -and
sky-scraping flies were the rule. LaHy did
beautiful batting. He stood at the home
plate five times and on tour occasions made
two-base hits, sending the ball over among
the Mission-street tenements three times.
There was a very meagei audience, but
those present had a good time. So did the
players with the exception of Straus of the
San Franciscos. He sulked by riirnself un
til the sixth inning, fanning out with great
precision every time he was at the bat. In
the sixth he woke up, though, and when
the greater part of the Oakland nine were
watching Mnllane at first base trying to
catch a fox terrier that was getting in the
way, Straus reached out for one of Com
iskey's easy balls and sent it Hying to the
Mission-street fence in the right tieid. Be
fore the Oaklanders knew where they were
Hulen and Werrick. who were lingering
on bases, scored and Straus was sitting con
tentedly on the bag at third base. After
that he looked less homesick.
The game was interesting and full oi
pood playing. Tbe errors were few, but
most of tnein were costly. They consisted
principally in muffs or fumbling at im
portant stages of the game. Van Haltren
did the heavy batting for the Oaklands.
Only seven innings were played, victory
remaining with the San Francisco nine,
who had the game from the first, owing to
the ease with which they batted Comiskey's
pitching. The score was 11 to 8. Both
batteries will be changed to-day. Frazier
will pitch for the San Franciscos and Jones
for the Oaklands.
This makes nine games won for San
Francisco this season and puts that nine
at the head of the league up to date.

NO SUCCESSOR ELECTED
One Chair in the Board of Edu
cation Still Remains
Dr. George Drucker Was Nominated,
but No One Would Champion
There is prospect of a lively fieht in the
Board of Education over the election of a
successor to Director Charles B. Stone,
who resigned to accept the position of
deputy under Superintendent of Schools
The board met as a committee of the
whole previous to the regular meeting and
discussea the matter thoroughly. A con
clusion was apparently reached. When,
however, Superintendent Babcock, at the
proper time, nominated Dr. George
Drucker, asking at the same time that his
action be confirmed, there was comnjete
silence, and no one arose to second the
Mr. Babcock intimated that while it had
not been decided to name Mr. Stone's suc
cessor at this meeting, there were three
candidates and some of the Directors
wished to be relieved of the importunities'
with which they were beset. He inti
mated that Dr. Drucker's election to the
place had all but been decided upon. Still
no one moved to put the matter to a vote,
and on motion it was put over to new busi
Then there were hurried consultations
in the secretary's room, the sergeant-at
arms being called into requisition on a
number of occasions to bring absent mem
bers in to answer to their names when a
vote was called for. Apparently the talk
came to nothing, for when new business
was reached no effort was made to bring
the matter up.
Before Dr. Druckcr's friends— if he had
any— realized what had taken place a mo
tion to adjourn was njade.
"Hold on," cried Director Clinton, "we
have one matter yet to settle."
The point was made that a motion to
adjourn is not debatable and the chair
sustained the objection. When the vote
on adjournment was taken one or two
feeble noes were heard, but the motion
was evidently carried, and was so declared
by the chair.
Some of the Directors looked, blank and
all declared that they knew no reason why
the appointment bad not been made.
"S^ome one fell down," said one Director,
sotto voce, and the matter rested there.
Director Stone presented his resignation,
to take effect immediately. It was ac
cepted, with a vote of thanks for his ef
ficient work as a Director and a& chairman
of the Classification Committee.
Dr. Clinton was appointed temporary
chairman of the Classification Committee
in place of Mr. Stone.
The committee reported in favor of the

The First Train.
A country boy who was brought up in a
remote region of Scotland had occasion to
accompany his father to a village near
which a branch line of railway passes.
The morning after his arrival, when saun
tering in the garden behind the house in
which they were staying, he beheld with
wondering eyes a train go by. For a mo
ment he stood staring at it with astonish
ment, and then, running into the house,
he said: "Fayther, fayther, come oot!

A Fairly Large Crowd Saw Five

DETECTIVE MADE A FAST RUN.
Wawona Carried off the Honors by
Winning the Mile Handicap at
Odds of 30 to i.
The string of Green Morris, among which is

new Ingleside track on Tuesday from Latonia.

The win of Wawona came in the nature of a
surprise to form players. His last race was a
poor one, but it is possibie he is not partial to
Easel was bravely backed at long odds to win
the third race, but was unfortunate in getting
the worst of the start. She showed a world of
speed and would undoubtedly have been a
dangerous factor in the race with a better start.
With his accustomed luck on favorites,
Hinrichs managed to Ret tangled up with all
the pockets it was possible to get into with the
8 to 5 choice, Caliente, clearly the best horse
by many pounds in the third race, so the
judges decided to put him on the retired list
for ten days.
Thomas Murphy, the well-known farrier, and
his partner, "Gloucester" McDermott, thought
their colt, Walter J, a soldered-up cinch for
the second race, but the youngster was unfor
tunate in being shut off soon after the flag fell.
Mr. Murphy was not discouraged at the colt's
showine, but says that he will yet show the
son of imp. True Briton to be^ youngster capa
ble of taking a shy at an American Derby.
With the coming of the Eastern visitors
the game at the Bay District, which was
getting very ragged, shows signs of im
provement. The racing yesterday was
good and the crowd the largest week
day one in many moons. But the favor
ites cannot shake off the hoodoo that has
hovered over them so long. All sorts of
horses with fancy prices against them in
the ring skipped past the judges in front
yesterday, Wawona heading the list at 30
to 1. Of the six favorites Castanette alone
The third consecutive start proved too
much for lit. Roy , the 2}< to 1 favorite in
the opening race of five and a half fur
longs, wno, after heading to the draw
gate, was passed by Last Chance, a S}4 to 1
chance, and beaten handily in the remark
ably good time of 1:073^.
A selling race for two-j r ear-olds, five
furlongs, followed and was captured quite
easily by the even money favorite, Cas
tanette, who got away from the post
fourth, but soon showed in front and won
by a length from Don Pedro. Clara John
son, a 100 to 1 chance, ran well, finishing
third a head away.
John Robbins scored a winning bracket
in the tnird race, a second edition of the
preceding run, with his recent purchase,
the giant Don Pio Pico. The Little Flush
filly made all the running and was not
beaten until the last few jumps, when
Cash Sloane brought the Don up with a
rush and nipped the race by a ncse. The
8 to 5 favorite Caliente finished in the
The mile handicap furnished the sur
prise of the day. Backed down from 7to 5
to 9 to 10, Model was played as though the
race was over. To a fair start Eddie Jones
got away first with vVawona, who had 25
and 30 to 1 about him in the betting, and
thereafter it was a case of catch me if you
can, the outsider leading all the way and
winning by a length from the 12 to lshot,
Navy Blue, who ran a very game race.
The favorite was fourth.
Another warm one was bowled over in
the fourth event on tne card. Montana
opened at 4 to 5 in the betting, but from
force of a strong play that was made on
Detective, cutting his odds from twos to
7 to 5, the Montana horse receded to 11 to

Tod Sloane going to the front with the
gelding and rating him along nicely, won
by a length from Mamie Scott in the fast
time of l:13>o for the six furlongs. The
favorite, who had been running in second

but a neck by the place horse.

KENNEL AND COURSING.
Los Angeles and San Francisco Dogs
to Race— Trials at Bakers
The Pacific Fox-terrier Club has ap
pointed A. R. Crowell a committee of one
to meet the St. Bernard Club and procure
its views as to the advisability of holding
a specialty show of St. Bernards and fox
terriers in connection with the poultry
show, which will be held at the Pavilion
on the evening of December 9. The Fox
terrier Club will attend in a body a special
meeting at the Occidental Hotef this even
ing for the purpose of receiving A. P.
Vrendenburg, the secretary of the Ameri
can Kennel Club. -T. B. Martin has re
signed from the club and Dominick Shan
non and Norman D. Evelyn have been
elected to membership.
T. Cronin, a well-known patron of the
sports of the leash, is in receipt of a letter
from Los Aftgeles which states that a
prominent coursing man of the southern
city has offered to race a greyhound against
any of Cronin's dogs for the sum of $250 a
side. The chajlonger stipulates that the
race must be run in Bakersfield or that
vicinity. Cronin has answered the letter,
and states that if the gentleman of Los
Angeles is sincere and means business he
(Cronin) will allow him his expenses to
this City, and will match a dog to run
asrainst the Southern California tlyer at
Kerrigan & Cronin's park, or if that propo
sition does not meet the wishes of the
challenger Cronin will be prepared to have
the race take place during the time of the
big coursing meeting at Merced. In all
probability the coursing man of Los
Angeles will accept the offer to run his
charge at Merced.
Apothecary Hughes, whose English set
ter, Silver Plate, is in training to meet a
crack pointer owned by the president of
the Pacific Kennel Club, received intelli
gence yesterday from the handler that Miss
PJate is doing splendidly, and will prove
a sure winner beyond all question. Slip
per Bier is saying very little concerning
his dog, but a letter from John Hughes
has news to the effect that the pointer is
working admirably, and can go a twenty
four hours' race without shedding a hair
or requiring a glass of water to cool his
ardor. Hughes is very confident that it
will be all-pointer day after the race is
decided in Bakersfieid.
A. Soti and J. P. Silvey Fined for
Shooting on the San Pablo Preserves.
Antone Soti and J. P. Silvey were ar
rested yesterday for shooting on the San
Pablo preserves, They were taken before
Justice of the Feace Wilcox, who let them
off with a fine. It was evident they ex
pected a taste of prison fare in addition to
the tine. A member of the club interested
in the San Pablo preserves said yesterday:
"It will scarcely pay a hunter to take the
chances of beiriß arrested for a little sport.
No exceptions will be made. All persons
who trespass on the club's preserves will

FAT OR LEAN!
"To Be or Sot to Be" One or the Other
Indicates— What ?
A Conundrum Pretty Enough In
Itself, but There Are Side Issues.
In a dime museum "the fat woman" i 3
ever in evidence, and the living skeleton
keeps her company with a regularity that
rivals the accuracy of an astronomical
clock. Now it is a moot question as to
which of these two specimens of "God's
'prentice work" is the more happy, or to
put it the other way, which of them wishes
most to be like the normal human being.
To the physicist there is nothing very sad
about either one of these '-freaks of na-
ture" — in fact they may prove a matter of
passing interest to him, but h<: knows
little and usually cares less about the
heartaches that these poor creatures have
as a rule, all because they cannot be as
normal beings are — "fit and well made."
But what comparison is there between
these ofttimes happy creatures and the
poor victims of insidious disease who, if
suffering from a wasting disease, gradually
become skeletons, or those who, if suifer-
inK from urinary or kidney trouble, may
become so very bleated in appearance that
their features are unrecognizable? Barely
there is none. It may be taken for granted
that when a man who has one of the-e
latter classes of troubles begins to look less
''puffy" it is a "good sign," and when
a man is afflicted with a nervous or drain-
ing disorder, that when he begins to pick
up flesh he is improving. Take the case of
Mr. S. M. Hooker, who at present resides
in Los Angeles. It is typical. Mr. Hooker
came within an ace of being one of ''the
sweet spirits that sit up aloft and keep
watch over poor Jack." 15ut he was saved,
as thousands of others have been, through
the marvelous sKill of the specialists at the
Hudson Medical Institute. He is now
cured and has this to say about the matter:
Los Amiki km, COL, July 80, 1895.
Hudson Medical Institute. Ban FranCiaoo, ('a!.—
Gentlemen: Your letters have Juat reached met
They were forwarded from Arizona. I hiive not
tilled out the blank, us 1 thought it was tuutaces-
sary I now feel as thongn I m a cured and a
well man. J have Ruined ten poosda mi■•••i ■••• I came
here— just a month ago. lam very gniteful to you
for what you have done for me. Respectfully
yours, 8. M. Hooker.
Mr. Hooker was suffering from a disease
which was sapping his very life's blood,
and that letter shows how he was on the
sure road to recovery. But it is the same
story always with those who apply to these
wonderful physicians. Just two or three
excerpts as examples:
K. C. Taft of Stowe, Cat., says: "I am feeling
fine without a sign of the disease now."
I.. Ashurst Jr. of l J anoche: "I would not take
?500 to relapse into the state I was in before I
commenced your treatment."
J. T. War.) of I'ark City, rtah. writes: "i am
very pleased to say that I am cured of the terrible
disease that 1 had."
F. Mintum, St. Louis, Mo.: "I have not felt so
well i:i five years as Ido now. I desire to express
my sincere thanks to you."
And so the grand work goes on. Day by
day the testimony is received, and the
physicians feel cheered by it. And it is
proverbial now that while there is life there
is always hope if you apply AT ONCE to
the great specialists of the HUDSON
MEDICAL INSTITUTE, and conse-
quently THEKE IS HOPE FOR ALL.
