SECRET OF SEX
MYSTERY OF "SAMMY" WILLIAMS
OF MONTANA DISCLOSED
JILTED IN HER YOUNGER DAYS
Adopted Mascullno Attire and Amassed
Great Wealth Without Her
Real Sex Ever Being
Eau Claire, Wis. The mystery ol
"Sammy" Williams, a resident of Man
hattan, Mont., Tor 18 years, who
dropped dead there from apoplexy,
was disclosed by her death. "Sammy"
was found to bo a woman, who was
Miss Ingeborge Wekan.
Miss Wekan was born In Norway
some 80 years ago, It is claimed; some
Bay later. Before she came to Amer
ica with her parents she was courted
by a young Norwegian, Sven Norem,
and the two becamo engaged. Then
thq Wekan family came to America
anijl settled In Allamakee county, Iowa,
wlibre some members of the family
reside, and Ingeborge came with
jAnd Sven Norem came also. Not
Ityng after the arrival In America Sven
WOrem became cold and distant to In
CQborge and finally jilted her for some
jreason not known, and she was broken
Jliearled. In fact, she was so heart-
oroKen mat she could not endure It tc
stay with her folks and among her ac
quaintances, and she suddenly disap
peared, and although she was sought
high and low she was not found.
About this same time, somewhere
around 1855 or 1SC0, there appeared In
Eau Claire a short, rather thick set
young man with coal black hair and
smooth face, which he never shaved.
His voice was rather soft and piping,
but he was strong as an ox and mixed
freely with the woodmen here, and It
was not long before he went to the
woods as a cook. He was such a good
cook that as long as he was hero he
c,ou!d got $100 and more per month,
"Billy" Spent Money Lavishly for
nnd ho amassed considerable money
which ho Invested In .real estate and
In other ways,
i He made Eau Claire his homo till
the late '70's or the early 'SO's, and In
the later years there were rumors
, floating about that "nilly" Williams,
which was the name he gave, or "Bll-
1 ly" Cooks, as ho was generally called,
was not what he represented himself
to be; In fact, that he was a woman
In disguise, but they were only ru
mors. Nobody know, but somehow or
ojther the report wns started, but "Bil
ly" still continued cooking In tho
woods, going out with tho boys, spend
ing monoy lavishly for liquor, but
never drinking moro than he could
comfortably carry, going out with tho
girls and having a creat old tlmo. Al.
jlhough retiring, he was always good
Matured and never begrudged spending
For several ycar3 he cooked on tho
Dalrymplo farms In North Dakota. hHH
masquerading successfully as a man,
, und 18 years ago went to Manhattan,
Mont., where ho lived till his sudden
death, when a few hours before ho
was going to plgn a deed to his prop
erty holdings there, which ho was go
tag to sell, ho dropped dead. And
thou came tho rovelat'.on that Wil-
Hams was a woman.

After Specialist Failed to Cure Her In
tense Itching Eczema Had Been
Tortured -and Disfigured But
Was Soon Cured of Dread Humori
"I contracted eczema and suffered ,
intensely for about ten months. At
times I thought I would scratch my-
self to pieces. My face and arms were
covered with large rod patches, so '
that I was ashamed to go out. I was
advised to go to a doctor who was j
a specialist in skin diseases, hut I I
received very little relief. I tried .
every known remedy, with tho same i
results. I thought I would never get bet-1
ter until a friend of mine told mo to try ,
tho Cutlcura Remedies. So I tried them,
and after four or flvo applications of
Cutlcura Ointment I was relieved of '
my unbearable itching. I used two
sets of tho Cutlcura Remedies, and I '
am completely cured. Miss Barbara '

The Common Strain.
Tho stress of life may touch some
lightly, may appear to pass others
by, but most men whom we meet,
with whom wo deal, who work for
us or for whom we work, know well
tho common stress of humanity. If
in all our human relations this
thought could be kept before us it
would revolutionize life. Wo would
bo humanized ennobled. We would
caro for men as men. Wo could
not escape the transforming realiza

recalled and thought upon the un
deniable fact of our own part in the

Long before women's newspapers
were started, and fashion plates In
their modern form wore thought of,
women derived their knowledge of tho
fashions from dolls dressed in modern
costumes, which were sunt from ono
country to another, more especially
from Paris, which then, as now, was
the leading center of tho mode.
