W. II. Hammond, and he llree on a farm
four miles from Belvldere. This year he
Is alleviating the sufforings of humanity
and not working the farm. He claims to
heal by spiritualistic aid. but as he refutes
fee for nls services he differ materially
from other spiritualistic healers. He Is
enllcrl "l)r." by his friends and patients,
though he modestly disrialms the title.
Twenty-three year old, he already hits a
wifo and child, and how to support them

Storii-o of miraculous cures hare been
circulated through lioono and De Kalb
conntios. with the result that the "doctor"
Is overwhelmedwith requests for aid, and
there are scores of people, hitherto noted
for probity and truthfulness, who stand
ready to swear that the cures are bona fide,
and that they are the living witnesses of
the efficiency of the healer's power. There
Is no doubt that some of thorn, a few
months or weeks ago, were either bedrid
den, or, as regular physicians declared, on
the ixjlut of death. Many of them had
been pronounced Incurable. They are
walking the streets today, attending to
business, and they place the credit for
their happily changed condition npon
Hammond's shoulders. The latter takes
his honors with becoming humility, sim
ply saving ho is the Instrument of one
greater than he. His "control," he says,
is a certain German doctor in the spiritual
world, who refuses to give his full name,
but calls himself "Dr. John."
Hammond doos not claim to be a Mes
siah and doe? not pursue the methods used
by Schlatter, who In Denver merely touched
his patients for a niomont and asked them
to pass on. He nses the "passes" of the
hypnotist and goes into a trance like all
franco mediums. While at work ho goes
over and handles the patient much as docs
a regular physician making a diagnosis.
Much time Is consumed, and If he attends
to 85 patients In a day he is doing well.
Hammond treated an old man who Is a
victim of dyspepsia In the presence of a
Chicago Tribune reporter, who thus de
scribe the operation: '"The healer spent
a few minutes In going into a trance and
putting himself In communication with
'Dr. John' of the other world. Gradu
ally his eyes closed, and soon he arose and
seized his patient's hand. Throughout the
proceeding, thongh his eyes appeared to be
tightly shut, he moved about with perfect
freedom and precision of movement. He
begnn to speak In broken English. He
told tho man his stomach was the seat of
his troubles, and that he would be well Id
three months it he obeyed a few simple
physical hygienic laws.
"Fifteen minutes were spent on this
patient, during which time the little
healer had wrestled with the tall subject
in an unexpectedly active and forcible
manner. Ho rubbed him vigorously,
passed his hands over him, and snapped his
fingers as the hypnotist does, sunk his fist
in the small of his back, massaged his
stomach, and bent his shoulders back un
til they creaked. It was really hard work,
but he showed no signs of tiring. When
it was over, somebody brought him a
basin of water, in which he dipped his
hands, and In two minutes he opened his
eyes und arose smiling to greet those who
Then he told his story.
"I am 23 years old," he said, "and

want to exercise It. ' Others can do the

because I do not think it right my call is
a holier one than that of making money
and besides my 'control' forbids it. When
I leave here, I shall take from all these
people just the amount of my railroad fare

Sam Tetlow, once a popular and pros
perous theatrical manager who spent
monev with a prodigal hand and eonnted
bis friends by hundreds, la In a San Fran
cisco almshouse. -
Tetlow went to California In the early
fifties. He was a young mecbania, and
his skill brought Mm profit and proper
consideration In the mine. After work
ing a few months at his trade he basanta
a prospector, and as such belaid the foun
dation for the fortunes he acquired and
lost in bis career as a theatrical manager.
It was not long, however, before the gam
bling tables bad more attraction for him
than labor with pick and oradle. In a few
months he became notorious" aa one of the
most reckless of the plungers at any of the
numerous games of chance then operating
In this city. Luck seemed to be always
with him, and he amassed a considerable
About that time the pioneers began to
appreciate the fact that they lacked a the
ater. Tetlow saw his chance, and the
Bella Union was built at bis suggestion.
He became the manager, and for years It
prospered beyond the dreams of avarice.
During the sonith of his prosperity Tet
low became the owner of the property now
known as Sutro Heights. A man named
Merchant owned the property. It com
prised about 40 acres, with a little hut on
it overlooking the sea. Tetlow saw the
shanty on the grand bluff, and be wanted
it He quietly purchased the place, and
there he lived. He made some improve
ments to the house, laid out a garden and
enjoyed his purchase.
He owned a team that no one could pass
on the smooth road but to the cliff, and no
Welsh baron could have extended more
generous hospitality than he bestowed
from his house overlooking the sea. Sara
Tetlow of the Heights was a dashing fellow
at that time, even if he bad reached mid
dle age. He was the most lordly "high
roller" among all the "high rollers" of
California. In every country town he
visited every man was bis guest as long as
he staid. At Los Angeles, where be stop
ped a few days after visiting Santa Cata
Una Island, for Improving which he and
James Lick had a plan, a four horse coach
stood constantly at the door of the hotel
ready for his whim. To Antioch he once
went on a business trip. The next timo
be visited the town the local band played
him a greeting. On his travels he bought
the bars that all might drink at his ex
pense, and he never took any change. He
was the prince prodigal wherever he
Then came a season of trouble for Tet
low. A beloved daughter died at the
house on the Heights. The place lost its
charm to the owner. He sold It to Adolph
Sutro, now the mayor of San Francisco.
Shortly after that deal Tetlow quarreled
with his partner, William Skcantlebury.
The quarrel lastd nearly a week, both
men growing more bitter toward each
other every day. Finally they met In the
bar of the theater. Soma bad words pass
ed. Skeantlebury struck Tetlow. There'
was a scuffle a pistol shot, and Tetlow
stood, with a revolver in his hand, a mur
derer. That was about 16 years ago. There
was a long trial, and Tetlow was sentenced
to be hanged. His wife was energetic In
his behalf, and the day of execution was
postponed two or three times. After
months had passed, a new trial was grant
ed, and the jury brought in a verdict ac
quitting lihn of the crime on the ground
of self defense.
When Tetlow stepped from the jail, he
was a poor man. His fortune had been
pent Jn his defense. The theater had
passed into other hands. To add to his
misfortune, his wife, who had been his
adviser, and who really managed hia busi
ness ventures, died.
This mode a great change in his affairs.
He rode in no more four-in-hands. No
brass bands blared when he approached.
He was lucky if be had an umbrella when
It rained.' In the daytime he peddled lot
tery tickets to men who uaed to approach
him with sycophantic servility, and at
dusk he marched slowly and wearily to a
little room in the top floor of a sinister old
building near the custom bouse, where he
was greeted by two little grandchildren,
who prattled sunshine into his darkened
life. Finally even that poor shelter was
lost to him, and, broken in health, he was
obliged to apply to the county hospital.

It seems that a Sunday lecture can al

Some time ago a Sunday lecturer at

Music can now be given in the open

In the years 1200 and 1201 one Eus
tace, abbot of Flare, preached through
out England the observance of the Lord's
day. He enjoined that no kind of work
should be done after the ninth hour on
Saturday until sunrise on Monday.
According to the manner of the times
his preaching was backed up by mira
cles. At Beverly a carpenter persisting
in finishing a wedge after the ninth
hour fell down in paralysis. In the same
town a woman went on with her weav

At Raffcrton a man nudes loaf and

broke it on Sunday morning, blood start

In Lincolnshire a woman made a loaf

set aside her loaves. Lot On Sunday
morning the loaves were beautifully
baked without any fire at all

Tho Birds' Bereiea tat Mem,
Before many years have passed the
legislatures' of our states and nation
will be forced to some action on the
needless destruction of birds. The robins
and bluebirds and wrens and the hun
dreds of glad little singers of the woods
and fields have been driven away not
merely from the cities, which they used
to inhabit, bnt from the Tillages on the
outskirts, and in some cases from even
the isolated hamlets. The Increase in
insect pests within two or three yean
betokens ia grave danger, and the cheap
est and surest way to meet it it to stop
killing the birds and let them return and
dine npon the moths and caterpillars
and the rest of the evil tribe that atrip
our trees and gardens. It will take many
years, at best, to restore them in such
numbers as tbey could be reckoned by
dozen or 20 years ago, bat people by
ceasing to be sportsmen, or at least by
ceasing to kill the birds that are of no
use as food, can bring good times back.
