handed to a woman, who at once
boarded an outgoing train. All efforts
to trace these cases and capture the

This is a story of a youngster who suffered so badly from the effects of coffee-drinking that Dr. J.
Hurty, secretary of the sttate board , of health of Indiana, had to take a hand.
The Indianapolis News published a long account of the case- the news (?) went forth and papers
throughout the country have given it much publicity.
From these reports we quote -
"An 11-year-old boy, Roy Schoolman, of Indianapolis, had to be forcibly taken from school and
given treatment. The constant use of coffee, it developed, had entirely changed the boy's happy, bright
disposition to one of nervousness, with morose spells, when he attempted to fight everyone within reach.
He was watched and his extreme addiction to coffee was discovered. One effect of the' coffee is said
to have been to deaden the brain faculties, changing the victim from an eager learner to a stupid
school dunce, and a little later verging upon Insanity. Since the coffee has been stopped physicians
report that he is now resuming his normal mental tone."
Why marvel? Is this news

Fast Becoming the Chief Remedy in
' " Curing Many Diseases.
A few years ago a well known mer
chant In the middle west was restored
to heallh by electrical treatment after
he had suffered for years. This case
aroused a good deal of interest at the
time, because electricity was still a
comparatively new treatment. Today
the scientific; world is no longer as
tounded at the marvelous cures made
by electricity. This is the electrical
age in the treatment of disease as well
as other things.
Electricity ls giving strength to the
weak, restoring new life to worn out
men and women, is an excellent tonic
to digestion and circulation, and it has
enabled many a rheumatic to throw.
away his crutches.
The physician today who has made a
specialty of electricity and has equip
ped his office with the X-Ray and the
many special electrical batteries Is on
the high road to success and popular
Ity. The specialist In electricity Is
able to give new hope and health to
thousands. Stomach troubles, nervous
ness, kidney diseases, catarrh and lung
affections, weak sight, deafness, in
fact, there is hardly any disease that
cannot be helped by electricity.
By using electricity alone or In com'
blnatlon with suitable remedies, many
diseases are now relieved and cured
that once were considered Incurable.
However, electric belts are of no
value in most cases, ls the opinion of
high class physicians all over the
world. They usually contain little or
no electricity that is of any real ben.
eflt. High class electrical batteries
are what is needed; -that will glvo
mild, pleasant currents.
Dr. D. Arsonville of Paris says: "The
world is on the eve of a therapeutical
revolution. Electricity will be the med
icine of the future:"
There ls very little doubt that the
real spark of life itself is some form
of electricity. When a person is sick
the electrical force in the body is low,
and .when the electrical force is built
up the health and strength are re
newed. In relieving pain, restoring health
and strength and prolonging life Itself,
electricity Is doing a wondrous work.
