BEAL WINTER PAYS
CITY ANOTHER CALL
None of those misguided persons
who last week had visions of an ab
normally early t-pring were to be
fomid today. In fact.' no one was
abroad that could well help it. At 7
o'clock this morning the thermometer
at the local observatory stood at 6 be
low, while the private instruments
showed at. least two degrees lower.
During the day the mercury did not
get far above zero. Tonight the
promise has been given that a still
lower mark will be touched.
This morning's temperature was
the lowest of any this winter save
one. Dec. 18 it was 7 below. The
wind today, however, rendered the
weather exceedingly disagreeable.
The storm beginning Saturday even
ing and lasting through all day yes
terday was the nearest to a blizzard
of any this winter. The snow was
fine ami drifted badly, though the to
tal fall would probably not be over
five inches on a level. Bail traffic was
somewhat interfered with today, pas
senger trains being generally' from a
few minutes to several hours late and
freight trains suffering much more.
Through trains from the southwest
on the Hock Island were entirely cut
off, having encountered a heavy snow
fall in Kansas.

The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance uKm the suffering hu
manity of a city either he is going to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Dr. Borne announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating' here, naturally all thinking people wanted
to know all about hiin. His advertisements were bold, startling, but con
vincing; the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
People commenced to investigate, and visited his offices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who had been suffering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less ami quick as it Is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. People deaf for several
years hail their hearing restored, and were, one and all, anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured.
"There is no doubt in the people's mind of the great good he is ac
complishing with his new methods, and all patients say how much he is do
ing for them. He has extended his liberal offer of free TREATMENT for
the'next ten days, and wc wish to shy that no sufferer should fail to avail
himself of the opportunity of consulting this eminent specialist as his ad
vice Is valuable. If you cannot call, write full description of symptoms.
