Chicago Resident Relates
Most Grewsome Experience
During L. T. Cooper's recent visit ( tried various treatments, and one phy
to Chicago, where his new preparation . sician in St. Louis was recommended
and theory created the usual sensa
tion, many hundreds of people brought
enormous Internal parasites to the
young man, which had left the system
after taking his medicine.
Among these people was Emil Wink
ler, who brought to Cooper a tape
worm that proved to he over 90 feet
In length. Mr. Winkler, who resides
at 182 East Ohio street, Chicago, had
this to say of his experience: "For
five years I have been, more or less
complaining. I have had severe head
aches, and any food that I would eat
would nauseate me. I would have bad
dreams almost every night; dizzy
spells would compel me to quit work.
Black spots would appear before my
eyes when stooping over and rising
quickly. I would feel tired most of
the time; In fact, I had no life in me
to speak of for the last flveNyears.- I

some time, but as usual I obtained no
"So many people asked me to try
Cooper's preparation that I decided
to do so, and after using itor a few
days, this awful-thing passed from my
system. I feel much better already.
end I want to say right here that I
thank Mr. Cooper a hundred. times for
what his medicine has done for me. I
would not tafte $5,000 and have that
thing back in my system again
' Mr. .Winkler is a fair sample of the
experience of many during Cooper's
stay in Chicago, and , this no doubt
helped to account for the enormous
sale of the Cooper preparation in this
city and others, recently visited by
the young man.
