He Got What He. Needed.
"Nine years ago it looked as if my
time had come," says Mr. C. Farthing
of Mill Creek, Ind. Ter. "I was so run
down that life hung on a very slender
thread. It was then that my druggist
recommended Electric ' Bitters. I
bought a bottle and I got what I need

grave,' but Electric Bitters put it back
on t,he turf again, and I've been well

Patrick F. Garrett, the former sheriff
of Dona Ana' county, in Texas, who
was recently shot and killed by J.
Wayne Brazle, a youthful ranchman,
one of his tenants, near Las Cruces
N. M., in a dispute over a ranch lease.
won popular fame in 1SSO when he put
to an end the bloody career of "Billy
the Kid." the twenty-one-year-old ban
dit, who had killed twenty-one men
"just to see them kick." For two years
or more "the Kid" had been the terror
of New Mexico with his thieving, ma
rauding' and his f requently recurring
man killings. He had met all comers
and they were easy, but he hadn't met
Pat Garrett. When.he did. he erred.
Garrett had first come into notice as
a foe of "bad men" in New Mexico
about two years before he finally hunt
ed dowA and killed the notorious "Kid,'.'
and he was anything except a green
man at the game of fighting desperate
criminals when the climax of his ca
reer came. Along about 1878, when
Garrett was first mode sheriff of Lin
coin county, largely through the influ
ence of General Lew Wallace, then
governor of New Mexico", no one knew
much about the young officer or of bis
mode of handling a gun, says the Kan
sas City Star. One day a friendly des
perado, attracted(yy Garrett's Innocent
appearance, took him aside for a bit' of
counsel-and advised him to go back to
Texas, where there were lucid Inter
vals of peace sometimes. -
"This country is too warm for the
like o' you," urged the desperado,
"and you'll not last through the sum
"Thanks," drawled Pat Garrett -

It was said ot Garrett that be could
pull and shoot in about , the time. It
takes a fly to get from under the hand
that tries to catch it, and it seems to
have been literally true.
Garrett gave the first demonstration
of his skill with the revolver fqr the
benefit of a western gentleman Indulg
ing In a little western saloon merri
ment, The gentleman, one Greenfelt,
with a weakness for other men's
horses, was amusing himself In a sa
loon making a couple of men'dance by
shooting at their feet. A third, whose ;
terpsicborean skill or basbf ulness had j
met the disapproval of the horse thief, j
iaj uu tuv; . vv . .. if u
venlently concealed in his person when
Fat Garrett casually dropped in.
"Three hands around!" whooped the
horse thief, shifting his pistol toward
Garrett, and almost on the last word
he lunged forward on his face with a
bullet through his, heart The last
Bound he beard in this world was Gar
rett's drawling comment:
"You're a poor caller."
Gave Hia.Flnt Demonstration. ,
Garrett had a number of other ad
ventures before he finally came to the
point in his life where "Billy the Kid"
demanded his attention. - But that time
finally came. The bandit had just been
out on one of his usual forays, which
terminated In a saloon brawl and the
ruthless killing of a man. It was the
outlaw's twenty-first victim and hU
When Garrett set out. for "the Kid"
he departed on no ordinary -mission
even for a. man used to the capture
and killing of border outlaws. The
bandit was. a. wild and lawless youth,
cunning, brave and dashing and as
clever and fast with a gun as auy man
that ever trod the west even though
be was only a boy in years. Billy was
both unscrupulous and cuuning, albeit
not without a leaven of chivalry and
romance. His adventures had been
numerous, and he was New Mexico's
desperado hero, but Garrett didn't mind.
Vhen the plucky sheriff overtook the
bandit, "the Kid" took a look at his op
ponent, whom he knew; immediately by
repute, and decided that it" was better
to give up. lie was tried and convicted
of murder and sentenced to death. But
the bandit was destined to die in an
other fashion than on the scaffold. Two
careless deputies were outwitted, and
A less experienced man would have
?one out In pursuit while the trail was
hot Not so Garrett, who knew the
ways, of the desperate and wily outlaw.
Instead lie set out for the Maxwell
:"anch. near Carlzzoo.Jn Lincoln coun
ty, where "the Kid's" sweetheart lived,
larrett and his men lay In wait until
they saw a man dodge into the house

In an Instant he knew that Maxwell

1 quick, catlike move backward and

BIG SIMULTANEOUS REVIVAL
One Thousand Converts Recorded Dur
ing One Week In Philadelphia. .
The chief topic in Philadelphia today
Is the Chapman-Alexander revival
movement, w hich is rousing the whole
city to new religious fervor. Simulta
neous meetings are hpid nightly . in
twenty-one churches, in addition to al
most daily services In theaters,' facto
ries and saloons. There are now about
fifty evangelists and gospel singers as
sisting Dr. J. Wilbur, Chapman and
Charles M, .Alexander in the concert
ed attack on the city, while before .the
effort is concluded the number of help
ers will 'reach seventy-five. There are
300 churches co-operating in the move
ment with 5,000 personal workers,
5,000 singers in: district .choirs, 2,000
ushers, 1,000 doorbell ringers to invite
people to the meetings and 250 district
During the first week over 1,000 con
verts were recorded,' and 'Dr. Chap
man and Mr. Alexander are enthusi
astic over results and the outlook. Dr.
Chapman says:. "Every report given to
us so far Indicates a sweeping victory.
This Is the sixty-ninth city we have
visited In the simultaneous evangelis
tic meetings, and In no city have we
found the preparation more satisfacto
ry, ."- the expectation greater and the
general condition of things bo hopeful
to our -work as In this city." s ; -
' Mr:; Alexander Is equally optimistic.
He says: "Not since the days of the
great gospel campaign in Chicago dur
ing the World's fair led by Moody have
I seen so many trained Christian work
ers brought together In one city to
reach the unsaved. I have never een
so many' gifted leaders of gospel song

. Joking With Handel.
A musical joke of a stupendous na
ture was played upon Handel when he
was the manager of the king's theater
in the Ilaymarket, says the London
Telegraph. It -was a constant maxim
of the great composer, whose sensitive
ear abominated the tunings up of an
orchestra, ; that air the . instruments
should be placed ready tuned at the
music stands and that the. members v.'
the o.YuC-jtVu dhoulil enler like n troop
of soldiers, take up their Instruments
like one man and at the stroke of the
baton begin. One evening a practical
Joker contrived to have IlandeJ en
gaged in conversation for- some min.
utes behind, the scenes while. he him
self entered the orchestra and quietly
altered the tunings of all thev instru
ments. Nobody was a bit the wiser till
the baton was raised, and then the
crash tame a crash of utter and feu
preme discord! Handel was exasper
ated to frenzy. It Is on record that he
seized his wig and flung It at the lead
er of the band, kicked the double bass
viols to splinters and demolished the
kettledrums, with many more ameni
ties of the same description.
' f. Big Jump on Skees. ' . ': ,
At n recent Chamonix meeting a Nor
wegian on skees made a jump of twenty-six
meters. It was magnificently
done, and he alighted upon his, skees
without Injury. This is a distance of
nearly eighty-six feet.
CooperY Followers Give
Reason for Their Belief
With a theory that human health Is
dependent on the stomach and with a
medicine which he says proves this
theory, Jj. T. Cooper, a comparatively
young man, has built up an immense
following during tne past, year.
Cooper has visited most of the lead
ing cities of the country, and in each
city has aroused a storm of discussion
about his beliefs and his medicines.
Wherever he has gone, people have
called upon him by tens of thousands,
and his preparation has sold in ini
mense. quantities. J t ?;
' The" 'sale, of -thl medicine has now
spread over the entire country, and is
growing'enormously each day. Jn view
of this, the following statements from
two of the great" number of followers
which he now has, are of general la
terest; . , ,
Mrs. Agnes Viggenhonser of 942 St.' cooper's remedies
1 m- 1 i
Louis avenue, Chicago, has the follow
Ing to say on the subject of the Cooper j
preparations: "For more than 10 years
I was broken down in health. I could
not sleep and. I ' was very nervous.
Gradually i began to kBe my memory,
until I could not remember things from
one ' day to another. I had severe
pains and cramps ' in my body, and 1
would at times rsee darW spots before
my eyes. I was unable to do any work
whatever as my strength was failing.
1 had no appetite, nor could I take
any medicine. - r j
r"L had about givers up hope of ever
being well again when I read of Mr.
Cooper's remedies. I decided to give
them a trial, and I began to feel bet
ter at once. After taking the medi
cine for two weeks I can say that I
am a new woman. I" can eat with en
joyment the pains in my body have
left me, and I am stronger than I have
been for years.
"I . cannot , say enough for Mr.
Cooper's remedies. They are wonder
ful, fpr they have done everything
claimed for them in my case." :
,r Another statement by MrlW. B.
Stewart 103, AV, Madison St.iChicago,
is" as - follows:. "J have -had "stomach'
trouble for years and anyone who is
afflicted this way knows what an awful
distressed feeling it causes. , Many a
time I have felt (hat I would give most
.any. price to be cured.. It was by ac
Jcident that I heard of this man
made up toy mind to buy a treatment
of him.; 1 used it for about two weeks,
and it is impossible to tell how much
good it has done me. A feel altogether
different. I have morelife and energy
than I have had foe years.' This med
icine certainly - does stimulate and
strengthen the --whole -system. ' -Tired
feeling and : weak condition o the
stomach has entirely passed away. 1
feel well again."- : ' K -i' '

WHAT IS IT?
It is a washing machine onerated by a motor placed horizontally on
top of the tub.
All wearing parts of this motor are built of solid brass, thus prevent
ing rust and corrosion', and making it a machine which will last a life
The motor operates by simply attaching the hose to the city faucet,
-and turning, on the water. . It is guaranteed to operate on a water pres
sure, of 30 pounds or over, and is the only motor on the market which
will do satisfactory work on as low a pressure as 33 pounds. .
The tub is made of Louisiana cypress, the best wood for the purpose. ,
It has four detachable legs, a lid covering almost the entire top, wringer
board, strong iron hoops, and Is finished in natural wood finish. . . .
. Can you afford to be without a machine which will save you as much :
labor, time and money as the Lewis Power Washer? . .
It saves labor ' because the city water pressure does the hard work
you would otherwise do, obviating the drudgery of washday.
It saves time because by its use you can do your washing quicker.
It saves money you would otherwise spend for incompetent, help or
laundry bills, and the cost of operating is but from 2 to 5 cents a wash-'
Ingrdependihg on the cost of water. . . . ,
If you are now doing your own washing, would it not be worth the;
price of the machine to do away with the dreaded part of washday? . ;
If you are not doing your own washing, would it not be worth some
thing to save your clothes from being ruined by others or to have your
washing done when and as you please? The saving in laundry bills wills
