LARSON Gires Healer Credit of Possess ing Wonderful Tower. Takes Every Opportunity to Recommend HI m to Friends. Readers of the State Journal in To peka and elsewhere have long been In terested In the reputed wonderful cures of Prof. J. Austin Larson, the natural magnetic healer now at the National hotel, but stories of cures in neighbor ing towns fail to interest in the same iegree as a local story might Larson has never kept the public waitinsr lone at any Dlace he has been for demonstrations of his power and following, is the story, as related to a Elate Journal reporter, of the remark able recovery of airs. E. M. Trow bridge of 600 West Sixth street. Mrs. Trowbridge is a remarkably active wo man, approaching seventy years of age and the widow of the late Dr. N. Trow bridge, a regular practicing physician and druggist of Council Grove, Kan., for nearly thirty years. She has a daughter in Topeka. Mrs. A. B. Rose, ife of a Topeka dry goods merchant, whose store is on the west side of Kan sas avenue near the corner of Sixth street. A cousin of her deceased hus band is Bert Trowbridge, baggage mas ter at the Santa Fe depot, a man who has lived in Topeka upwards of twenty years. Mrs. Trowbridge is unstinted in her praise of Prof. Larson s power and rec ommends him to her friends every where. To a reporter, she said as she left his offices today with the spright liness and vigor of a woman twenty years her Junior. "I don't walk much like a cripple, do I?" and then she told the following story: I took a few treatments of Prof. Larson at Abilene this srjring and got better. Now I am completing my course of treatments and am getting well. Prof. Larson is all right. His work at Abilene, where he is so highly spoken of proves that. "I think very few possess Prof. Lar son's power and I can speak very high ly in his praise. Healers are born such, not made by education in the art of massage or mere manipulative treat ment. My trouble was what doctors called rheumatic gout, causing an en largement of the joints of my hands so that I could not open or shut them. Sciatic rheumatism also attacked me about a year ago. finally settling in my left knee, making it stiff and causing me to walk with a limp for the past six or eight months. Now I can open and shut my hands with ease, and sew, while before I could scarcely dress my self or comb my hair. I can walk up and down stairs, placing each foot in turn before the other, something I hadn't been able to do for a long time before taking treatment. Why I was so stiff that I couldn't ra4se my left foot sufficiently to step over a rug without tripping and I wasn't ' able to get around at all. The other morning I came down stairs about as lively as a school girl and my son-in-law. Mr. Rose, remarked. "Mother trips down etalrs like a hotel clerk." "I couldn't sleep before, but now I sleep well. My eyes used to pain me so I could hardly see. but now the pain is gone. My stomach and bowels gave me trouble .but he has cured them and restored me to a hearty ap petite. The constant pain, which left me so nervous, is practically all gone and with it has gone my nervousness. ! I think the natural magnetic treat-! ment Is the coming treatment for dis- eases of a!I kinds, and as a regular practicing physician's wife I have been able to judge of the compara tive value of medicine and this treat ment." Mrs. Trowbridge's statement of her former condition and the wonderful Improvement under Prof. Larson's treatment is borne out by her daugh ter, Mrs. Rose, who was seen later at the store. "Mother is certainly wonderfully Improved under Prof. Larson's treat ment." she said. "I believe in giving every one nis aues and I rranklv con fess that I had little faith in his" being !lf:J0.he,,pmithTer( but J'n have annul iiiiti riui. Larson nas convert ed me. He has helped her more than anything else and if she will only take care of herself I am confident that she will enjoy her present good health for years to come."

KSIXIN'S FOOD CO BOSTON, MASS. f If jgjfgjlj) 1 William Allen White publishes the following in yesterday's Emporia Gazette- "This is the Gazette's lucky aay: Eight years ago today an article en titled 'What's the Matter With Kan sas' appeared in this paper, and good luck has been in the shop ever since. Since that time the Gazette has built and paid for a 5,000 building: $5,000 in new equipment; has bought and paid for a home for its editor; has multiplied its circulation by three till it now has a sworn, circulation of a little over 2,000 dailies, and pays more postage on papers than all the other papers In town multiplied by two: cir culates 1,500 papers on the townsite of Emporia, and has the reputation among collection agencies of having its two thousand weekly subscription list collected up closer to date than anv other country weekly In Kansas. 'What's the Matter With Kansas' was a 'scratch shot.' It couldn't be dupli cated. There wasn't an original idea or expression in the whole piece; it was merely what had been heard on the streets, in offices and on trains. It was a mirror of the popular temper at that time. But it brought lots of luck and the man who would go back on it wouldn't be much. Demand for it still continues, and two or three let ters a week have come to the office inquiring for the article for the last year. The article has no more to do with 'present conditions in Kansas than The Beautiful Swiss Who Is T if rr mwilhAi A -y-flli,-ft'"'rra Miss Ruth Hofer, who. It Is announced, will bestow her hand and heart on A. Gladstone Dowie, son of Elijah III., is said to be the richest subject of the little European republic. Her entire fortune will go into the coffers of Elijah III... a large part of it having been turned over to him already. a description of the Garden of Eden has to do with Jackson county. Mo., but nevertheless the article still goes." FOLLOW EXAMPLE OF TOPEKA, Peter Sells Says Exjiosition Should Be Advertised Like Kansas Fair. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat says: Colonel Peter Sells, the circus man, was in the city Saturday and spent the day at the WTorld's fair. This season the circus, of which the Sells brothers are proprietors, has been traveling in the east, in order. Colonel Sells de clares, to keep out of the way of the fair. It is touring New York state this month, and will not come west at all. In speaking of the fair. Colonel Sells said: "It is a wonderful show. I did not go into the buildings yesterday, but took in the grounds generally. I ex pect to come down in September and spend a week or ten days. Yesterday was my first glimpse of it, and I was surprised at its magnitude. What it The best features of the fair should be" shown in colors all over the United States. With the newspaper advertis ing it is getting the attendance could easily be increased 100 per cent. "In advertising our circus we have always spent from 4 0 to 50 per cent of the gross receipts, and we have found that it pays. I know something about advertising fairs, too, having had experience with my brother in booming the Kansas state fair at To peka several years ago. We did it up right, and the attendance one day was 6 0.000. You can't advertise a big thing like this too much." DEWEYS AT EUREKA LAKE. Family in Consultation Over the Will of the Itte Millionaire. Chauncey Dewey and his sister, and his mother, Mrs. Dewey, and Mrs. Ger trude Dewey, the second wife of the late C. P. Dewey, are at the Eureka Lake hotel near Manhattan this week, holding a conference relative to the ap proaching litigation in the Chicago courts concerning the division of the Dewey estate. It will be remembered that by the terms of the will of the late C. P. Dew ey, Charles Killen. his private secretai-y comes In for about one-third of the Dewey estate. The Dewey family will &e united in their efforts to break the will and prevent so large a portion of the estate going to one outside the family. It will be shown to the court that Charles Killen was with Mr. Dew ey when he died and that he framed the will which made him the object of so a large a bequest. The Deweys anticipate no trouble in presenting evidence to the court tit Chicago which will be sufficient to break the will. The conference of the members of the family at Eureka Lake this week is said to be for the purpose of agreeing upon a division of the es tate among the surviving members of the family. Suicide Prevented. The startling announcement that n in ventive of suicide had been discovered will intereet many.

Officers Decline to Assume Any New Besponsibilities. People Desiring Mouej Must Go Elsewhere for Aid. Police business is rather dull. There seems to be nothing of importance for the coppers to cop, and a few plain ones and an occasional street walker have to furnish all the amusement. The joint business is slack, but the demand for cold ones is not. Testerday was a fine time for the man who had cold quarts to exchange for hot quarters. As fast as the guzzler poured beer into his sys tem it ran out through the pores of his hide. It was like filling a sieve with to Wed Gladstone Dowie. K as. i water, they would not stay filled. Mr. J. H. Voilett doesn't like to be "cussed." Customers who contemplate patronizing the eld Hapgood livery barn on Jackson street, which is the hangout of Mr. Voilett, will please bear this In mind. Mr. Voilett paid $10 into the city treasury this morning because ; a man cussea mm. ine cusser was James Manon, and Voilett, the "cuss ed" didn't do much to him. Manon came in, says Voilett, and ordered some- Proprietor Kicked the Customer. thing or other, presumably a buggy, and when the stableman did not break his neck getting it, began to "cuss" him. It is not cuss-tomary for the cuss-tomer to cuss the liveryman, so Voilett knocked him down, kicked him up and knocked him down again. The "cusser" had the "eussee" pinched. Lillie Moore and Catharine Chester, colored females, wanted to go down Kansas avenue last night, but neglect ed to put on their wings before start ing, in fact before ctiriew, but the cur walking. It was very early in the n ing, in face before curfew, but the cur few ordinance does not affect colored women who trek the principal pike af ter the shades of evening tide have fall en. When first spotted by the cops the Moore woman was putting up a sam ple of conversation to two white men who chanced to pas sthat way. In court this morning it appeared that the Ches ter woman had no chips In the conver-" sation, so she was discharged, but the female with the talk was fined ' $25. Judge Reed, who defended the pair, took an appeal. Another colored woman wearing a wrapper and two names, was gathered on the same charge later in the even ing. According to the books she is either Gertrude Hollis or Jennie Ed wards, and the police don't know which. Either one will do.

A Swede strike breaker, a resident of the late First street hotel, the strike breakers' roost which was de-roofed by fire last night, came to the police sta tion this morning and desired assist ance in getting back some of the good money he had paid the proprietor of the dump. He said that he had paid twice for the same privilege, that of trying to eat and sleep on the premises for the coming week. He had paid the keeper of the place once, but he said that person had gone to the Santa Fe and gleaned another payment in ad vance for the same week. Then when he was burned out the Swede wanted his money back. The police admitted that they did not run a collection agency except for H. Ward Page and Younkln the dog catcher. The court decided last evening that Mrs. Foglequist, of 601 West First street, did not disturb very munj; peace, so she was discharged with a lecture. The Swede lady was accused of dis turbing the Birmingham family, of G10 West First, by talking Swede and other vile language over the back yard fence. DECIDES AGAINST HOMESTEAD. Government Land Officials Say Burtis Cannot Take Land. Register C. H. Titus and Receiver J. f. Wood of the United States land office have decided that Clyde L. Burtis can not homestead the 40 acres of land in Marshall county now held by Edward M. Williams of Marysville. The case has been before the land office for a long while. Quite a number of years ago W. H. Smith of Marysville purchased 40 acres of indemnity land from the state. By suc cessive transfers it came into possession of Edward Williams. About a year ago Clvde L. Burtis filed on the land as a homestead. Williams took up the mat ter at once and asked the state to defend its title. Attorney General Coleman took up the cudgel in his behalf. John L. Hunt represented the state and Milton Brown defended the claim of Burtis. The local land office recommended to Washington that the state be allowed to perfect its title at this time with a show ing of the proper basis therefor, or upon the surrender of an equal amount of land somewhere else. That will clear Williams title. Burtis has until September 15 for appeal. TWO MORE BLOCKS OP PAVING. Committee Decides That Twelfth and Jackson Streets Be Improved. Two more blocks of paving will be dono this year in Topeka. At the meeting of the streets and walks committee Monday night a favorable vote was made on the petition of the street railway company to pave Twelfth street between Kansas ave nue and Jackson street, and Jackson, be tween Huntoon and Twelfth. The work will be done this year, pro vided the city can find a contractor who is willing to wait until next year for his pay. The Topeka Railway company in formed the streets and walks committee that it can find a contractor. That will be satisfactory to the city. The commit tee decided to turn down the petition for the creation of a benefit district for the purpose of opening Throop street in tha Fifth ward. Councilman Shimer's resolu tion to allow the use of the parking at Tenth and Jefferson streets to E. P. Ross was also rejected. $15 for Round Trip To Denver.

"Land 'Cakes" is a name frequently given to Scotland, where meal cakes form an important article of diet The phrase was made famous by Robert Burns in 789, in his poem On Captain Grose 's Peregrinations through Scotland, which commences with the following lines: "Hear, Land-o'-Cakes an brither Scots, Frae Maidenkirk to Johnny Groats." It may well be that some later poet will sing of America as the Land of Biscuit, for in the past five years the American people have consumed over three hundred million packages of ls)DSQJD NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY JtOKTIl TOPEKA.
