Wolverines Can See Nothing
But Victory Thanksgiving.
SAY STAGGSIS CLEYER.
They Think Eckersall, Too, Is
to Be Watched Closely.
Overconfldence Is Feared by
"Hurry Up Vost."
Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 27. It's up
to Michigan to make good the Wolver
ines' claim to be the gridiron champion
ship of the west. Fully realizing a!S
the advantages and disadvantages in
the situation, the Michigan rooter ex
pects the team he believes is impregna
ble and Irresistible to make good against
Chicago next Tuesday afternoon on
Marshall field.
Coach Tost has laid stress all week on
Chicago's advantages. He has endeav
ored to get the ruaiza and blue rooters'
to looking at the situation sanely, and
as much as possible, without prejudice.
He has succeeded in a greater measure
than is apparent today. The real fear
of Chicago will probably begin to mani
fest Itself by the time the team puts
oo its final coat of polish on Tuesday.
Call Stagg Wily Coach.
ATI Michigan firmly believes Stagg's
eleven is the wily Alonzo's best. Fur
ther, It is believed the strong maroons
will have as many. If not more, than the
usual number of tricks, ready to spring
on the Wolverines. Any one here will
concede that "wily," the adjective mos'
often applied to Stagg, is just the proper
word.
Michigan is wining te say, too, that
Eckcrsall is wonderfully fast, both in
shifting himself over ground and in run
ning his eleven. It is well known here
that he never showed in as good form
In accurate kicking as this fall.
Bezdek is conceded to be an excellent
plunging full back, and De Tray a pow
erful half. Walker is given the credit
of having shown as well as Hal Weeks
or Clark so far this year. In the back
fleld, Michigan agrees the Wolverine is
fully equaled on paper at least. Cat
lin and Parry are more experienced
ends than Garrels and Harry Hammond.
The entire Chicago line is believed to be
strong, the impression prevailing that
Stagg's guards are perhaps the most
vulnerable units in his maroon wall.
Garrels a First Year Wonder.
On the other hand, Johnny Garrels, at
left end. has proved himself a wonder
for a first year man on the eleven. He
is the team's punter. In the Wisconsin
game the youngster even got a little the
better of Bush, the Badger veteran, it

ed. Harry Hammond, right end, the
Junior member of "The Hammond beef
trust." is a veteran, heavier than ever,

gan has said, "if our ends can only stop

ends to be right there at all tinres. Chi
cago ends, though, may get down under
punts faster than (farrels and Ham
mond. Wisconsin's ends did that.
At one tackle is big Joe Curtis, great
of bulk and great in football ability.
Few are the tackles who can say they
have held Curtis' plunges this year.
He is playing his third year, and is
bolter than ever, lthelnschlld, at tne
othT tackle, seems to be striving to
rival Curtis. The lanky Californian
has come along through the season
like a steam engine astray under full
steam. He has not only been "the
goods" on defense, but has been a
wonderfully strong man on onense.
Guards of Star Caliber.
The jruards are Schulte and Graham

To be Fair to Yourself to Learn by a Test what Liquozone
Means to You. The First Bottle is Free.
To you who are sick and are waiting this appeal is to
you. An appeal to be fair to yourself.
Don't think that the help which you need is impossible.
Please, for a moment, lay your doubts aside. Send us
this coupon and see the good it may bring you. Let us
buy you a bottle of Liquozone to try.
The test is free; and, if it succeeds, think what it means
to you. And do you suppose we would make this offer if
the results were not likely to be satisfactory?
Note what this product has done.
Two years ago, Liquozone was known to but few. Now
more than 11,000,000 bottles have been used. Today
there are countless cured ones scattered over half the
world telling what they owe to Liquozone.
We ask you to do what they did. Let this product
itself prove its power. Please try it at our expense.
What Liquozone Is.
Liquozone is a tonic-germicide .the
virtues of which are derived from gas
alone. The formula is sent to each
user. , ,
The process of making requires
large apparatus, and from 8 to 14
days' time. It is directed by chemists
f the highest class. The object is to
so fix and combine the gases as to
carry their virtues into the system.
The gases employed are vitalizing,
and the product which results is a
tonio. The gases are germicidal, and
the product they create is a harmless
germicide. No alcohol, no opiates, no
dangerous drugs are employed in it.
Nothing whatever but helpful gases,
and the water used to absorb them.
The invention of Liquozone meant
finding a way to utilize gases in the
treatment of germ diseases. And mil
lions know from experience something
of what that discovery means to
humanity.
weak, Schulte and Graham will prob
ably be the men to blaze the way in
the Wolverine attack. "Germany"
Schulte is looked upon as a reliable
snapper of the ball, since he handled
himself well in the encounter with
Remp, Wisconsin's crack center.
Captain Norcross, at quarterback, is
a speedy passer of the ball, believed to
be a field general without peer in the
west as his work in the march for
Michigan's touchdown in the Minne
sota game of 1903 is claimed to show
and a reliable man in the far field
when on defense. All season he has
handled well the punts sent to him. He
has seemed to improve with the re
sponsibilities of the captaincy on him.
Only one thing has marred his work
the several injuries that he has sus
tained from the beginning of the year.
If he has to leave the game he will
bequeath the quarter's position to the
ablest substitute on the eleven. Bar
low. None to Fill Heston's Shoes.
Longman, Hammond, and Weeks
are all veterans. There is no one like
"Stub" to back up the line on defense.
or none like the big Hyde Parker to
smash interference in attempts at end
skirting. Either Weeks or Clark will
prove good at left half, though not at
all filling the great Heston's empty
shoes. Weeks is the better defensive
player; Clark has a shade on Hal in
the offense.
STANDS BY FOOTBALL.
President Eliot of Harvard Has No
Idea of Its Abolition.
Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 2 7. Presi
dent Eliot of Harvard stated last night
that he would not call a meeting ot
university and college presidents to
undertake the reform or abolition of
football. A request that he call such
a meeting was received by President
Eliot in a telegram from t hanceilor
MacCracken of New Tork university.
after the death of Harold P. Moore of
the union college football team.
' I have, not replied to Chancellor
MaeCracken's telegram," said Presi
dent Eliot.
"I expect to write him a letter soon.
I shall decline to take the action re
quested. I can not see why such
action should come from , me. it
should come from the board of over
seers of the corporation."
When asked whether he thought
such a movement was contemplated,
President Eliot said:
"I know absolutely nothing about it.
Mr. Storey, an overseer of Harvard,
accordmer to the newspapers, is think
ing of introducing a motion to abolish
the game. However, he denied to me
that he had any such intentions. He
denied it to the newspapers, too, but
they published it nevertheless."
WASHINGTON PLAYER GONE.
Shortstop Cassidy Missing and Friends
Fear Foul Play.
Chester, Pa., Nov. 27. The aged
mother and friends of Joseph Cassidy,
the Washington American league base
ball player, are greatly worried over
lengthy absence from home. The last
heard from him was about the time
Washington and the Athletics were
playing the final game in Washington.
He then wrote home stating that he
contemplated going on a short trip with
some friends.
Since then nothing has been heard
from him, although friends have been
making inquiries concerning his where
abouts. As he generally carried a sum
of money on his person it is feared
that he may have met with foul play.
His mother is seriously ill, the result
of worrying over his absence. Nothing
was thought of his absence during the
first two weeks, as it was believed he
was simply enjoying a brief tour of the
country before returnine- home, but as
week after week passed and nothing
was heard from him his relatives and
friends became alarmed and began to
make inquiries which proved o no
avail.
WOODSON HEARD FROM.
Colt Which Ran Serond to Highball in
1904 Derby May Race Again.
Lexington, Ky., Nov. 27. Luther Dick
erson, the Jessamine county trainer, has
in winter quarters now at Nlcholasville
the nucleus of a racing stable which he
hopes to campaign next season.
It is headed by the 5-year-old Woodson,
the son of imp. St. George, which ran
second to Highball in the American derby
of 1904.
After that race Woodson stepped on
one of his quarters in his work and Dick
erson ' retired him for the season. This
year his owner fitted him for June and
July racing and engaged him in a num
ber ot valuable stakes at Chicago, but.
these stakes being declared off. left the
noted 4-year-old at the mercy of the
handieappers. so Dickerson sent the son
of St. George to the farm.
His trainer now believes he will be one
of the great horses of the turf in 1906.
An Appeal
Kills Disease Germs.
The main value of Liquozone lies in
the fact that it is deadly to germs, yet
harmless to living tissues.
That is not true of common germi
cides. They are poisons when taken
internally. That is whv medicine has
proved so helpless itl dealing with
germ diseases. The usual germ-killing
drugs can not be taken in effective
doses internally.
Liquozone is harmless. That fact
has been repeatedly proved by scien
tific tests. Not only harmless: it is
good for you. Its effects are exonerat
ing, vitalizing and purifying. Its bene
fit is often apparent from the very first
dose. Yet contact with Liquozone de
stroys every form of disease germ that
has yet been discovered.
Can you not sec why this product
may do what other remedies fail to
accomplish ?
He is as sound as a bell and looks rug
ged and hearty. Dickerson will go slow
with him and make an eastern invasion
during the Saratoga meeting.
BADGERS TO LOSE SIX.
Coach King Will Have to Fill Several
Gaps.
Madison. Wis., Nov. 27. Six of Wiscon
sin's star football men went out of com
mission this fall. Remp, Bertke, Bush.
Vanderboom, Findlay and Donovan have
played their four years. Brindley is a
senior and is uncertain about returning.
This makes at least six positions that
Kingr for it is almost ' certain King will
return will have to fill. The recruits
will come from the freshman team, from
the second varsity, and from a few men
of football caliber who intend to enter the
university next semester. Steel, the fresh
man oenTcr, has a good chance of taking
Kemp's place. Dalton, fullback on the
freshman team, will be in the race for
halfback; Messmeer will try for tackle,
and "Pug" Wright is second to no man
in college at quarterback. Johnson. Bley
er and Schwaim will be in line for
Bertke's and Donovan's places, and
"Cody" Clarke looks good for the other
halfback. Melzner. Deering and Brindley
are the three men mentioned for captain
next year.
TALK STAY-AT HOMES JOYFFL.
Celebrate the Victory at New Haven
Dancing Around Big Bonfire.
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 27. Owing to
the fact that a large majority of the Yale
students had gone to Cambridge for the
Yale-Harvard football game, the celebra
tion at night was not so large as it would
otherwise have been, but what it lacked
in volume it made up in enthusiasm.
So clr.se was the game throughout the
afternoon and so stubbornly fought that
when the news of Yale's victory reached
New Haven and the long strain was bro
ken the joy of the Yale men knew no
bounds.
All night long the campus resounded
with cheers, and around a big bonfire
blazing in the college yard the Yale men
danced and sang, in the exuberance of
their joy. The special train bringing back
Yale s rejoicing hordes reached hero
about midnight and added more fuel to
the celebration.
SOUTHERN LEAGUE'S WORK.
Adopted Measures to Keep Down the
Salary Limit.
Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 27. Drastic
measures were taken at the annual
meeting of the Southern League for en
forcement of a $2,700 salary limit, which
was adopted after spirited debate by a
vote of 6 to 2. President Kavanaugh
and all old officers who were re-elected
have provided for forfeiture of fran
chise from any club found violating the
new act, which, in addition to confining
the maximum monthly pay roll to $2.
700, limits clubs to 14 players after May
1 of each season.
It was agreed to open the next South
ern League season on April 11. Mana
ger Finn has agreed on terms to man
age Nashville. Charley Babb. former
Brooklyn (New York) player, will man
age Memphis. Robert Gilks, of Toledo,
also signed new contract to take charge
of Shreveport.
BR ITT AND NELSON'S ACT.
Boxers Will Perform in Cleveland
Next Week.
Cleveland, O., Nov. 27. Jimmy Britt
and Battling Nelson will give sparring
exhibitions at two different burlesque
theaters here next week, and it is pos
sible that they may be matched for
another fight. Billy Nolan came from
Pittsburg, and said that as soon as
Britt pays him the $5,000 he owes him
from the last fight he will talk busi
ness. Nolan says he will agree to a
match in private or will match Robert
Lundie. Nelson's sparring partner,
against Britt. He would like to have
Nelson and Britt meet for a. side bet of
$10,000, hte winner to tales all.
A GREAT BIG SURPRISE.
Was the Victory of Sullivan Over
Gardner.
San Francisco, Nov. 27. The result of
the fight was a terrible jolt for the San
Francisco sports, who insist on betting
on sentiment. There was no reason for
making Jimmy Gardner a 2 to 1 favor
ite over Mike (Twin) Sullivan. The lo
cal fight fans argued that Sullivan had
not gone the 20-round pace for a long
time, and that Jimmy's youth and su
perior strength would wear out the
bald-headed boxer. This Waterloo for
the local sports follows heavily on the
losses on the Britt-Nelson and the
Kaufmann-O'Brien fights, in which the
local fans backed Britt and Kaufmann.
The gross receipts were $5,960, ot
which Sullivan received $2.2.13 and
Gardner $i45. Besides has share, Sulli
van won a $1,000 side bet.
Coursing at Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City, O. T., Nov. 27. The
second event given by the Oklahoma
Germ Diseases.
In the past few years, scores of dis
eases have been traced 10 germ at
tacks. These include most of our
minor ills, and most of our serious
sickness.
A few years ago, all these diseases
were attributed to other causes. The
remedies made for them were based
on theories which have since been
abandoned. Is it any wonder that
those old time remedies so often prove
ineffective ?
Germ diseases call .for Liquozone. In
any such disease no, matter how diffi
cult we send to each user a guar
antee, permitting two months' treat
ment at our financial risk. If the re
sults are unsatisfactory, the patient's
own druggist returns every penny
paid. "VVe do this so that none who
need this help may find reason to go
without it.
We have sent out many thousands
of these guarantees, yet less than five
in each thousand have been returned
for redemption. Can you not see that
a remedy so wonderfully effective in
general is likely to be effective with
you ?
Where It Applies.
These are the diseases in which
Liquozone has been most widely em
ployed. In these diseases, more than
any others, it has earned its wide
reputation. Not all of these are known
germ diseases. Authorities differ on
some of them. But, according to our
experience, these are the diseases to
which Liquozone best applies.
In each of these diseases we supply
the first bottle free. And in all no
I matter how difficult we offer each
j user a two months' further test with
out the risk of a penny.

BEATS THE WORLD
Wealth Produced on Farms of
the United States
In 1905 Reached a Value of
$6,415,000,000.
NEW HIGH RECORDS.
Made hy Corn, Hay, Wheat and
Rice Crops.
Farm Values Growing at Rate
of $3,400,000 a Day.
Washington. Nov. 27. "Wealth pro
duced on the farms of the United
States in 1905 reached the highest
amount ever attained in this or any
other country $6,415,000,000."
In the first anrjual report of his
thir term, Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson presents an array of figures
and statements representing the prod
ucts and profits of the farmers of the
country, which he admits "dreams of
wealth production could hardly equal."
Four crops make new high records
as to value corn, hay, wheat and rice
although in amount of production
the corn crop is the only one that ex
ceeds previous yields. In every crop
the general level of production was
high, and that of prices still higher.
Beside the enormous yield of
wealth, the secretary estimates that
the farms of the country .have in
creased in value during the past five
years to a present aggregate of $6,
133.000,000. "Every sunset during the past five
years," he says, "has registered an in
crease of $2,400,000 in the value of the
farms of this country." This increased
value, the secretary suggests, is in
vested better than in bank deposits or
even in the gilt edged bonds of private
corporations.
In dealing with the crop report
"leak," Secretary Wilson, after re
ferring to the "gross breach of trust
on the part of one of the employes of
the bureau of statistics," says:
"This department acted with vigor
and dispatch' -when it got evidence of
w rongdoing on the part of its own of
ficials, but we have no evidence of dis
ciplinary or preventive action at the
traders' end of the line, where gam
blers interested neither in the produc
tion nor consumption disturb values
to the injury of both, and make loud
outcry when creatures of their own
kind corrupt officials to betray con
fidence for the love of money. The re
sponsibility for this 'leak' is shared by
everyone who, to get money without
work, gambles in farm products.
When this form of industry ceases
these parasites who tempt department
officials will have to work for their
bread."
Horses Increase in Spite of Auto.
The method of handling crop reports,
he says, has been thoroughly recast dur
ing the year. There has also been a de
cided ehanse in the methods of work
prescribed for field agents. Each agent
Is now confined to a definite group of
states, with which he becomes familiar
by travel each month.
Analyzing the principal crops for the
year, the secretary says that corn
reached its highest production with
2.708.000.000 bushels, a gain of 42,000.000
over the next lowest year, 1899; hay is
second in order of value, though cot
ton held second place during the two
preceding years. The hay crop this year
is valued at $605,000,000. Cotton comes
third, with a valuation of $375,000,000;
wheat, $525,000,000; oats. $282,000,000; po
tatoes. $138,000,000; barley, $58,000,000; to
bacco, $52,000,000; sugar cane and sugar
beets. $50,000,000; rice, $13,892,000; dairy
products. $665,000,000, an increase of $54.
000.000 over last year.
"The farmer's hen," the secretary says,
"is becoming a worthy companion to his
cow. The annual production of eggs is
now a score "of billions. Poultry products
have climbed to a place of more than
half a billion dollars in value, srt fhe
farmer's hen competes with wheat for
precedence."
There are more horses and with a
larger aggregate value than ever before,
notwithstanding, as the secretary says,
they were first threatened by the bicycle
and later by the suburban trolley and
the automobile. He estimates their
value at $1,200,000,000, or nearly as much
as the corn crop, and the value of mules,
$252,000,000
More .Milch Cows. Fewer Sheep.
Although milch cows are Increasing in
number and value, the report states that
other cattle and sheep have for several
years been decreasing. There are 17.
750.000 milch cows, valued at $482,000,000.
Other cattle are numbered at 43.669,000,
with a value of $662,000,000. Swine num
ber 47.321.000, valued at $283,255,000. In
the aggregate the value of farm animals
has increased a few million dollars with
in the year, and since the census of 1900
have increased 9 per cent.
With this enormous production the
secretary says the wants of 83.000.000
people have been supplied with a re
maining surplus constituting a gener
ous contribution to other nations. The
exported farm products during the fis
cal year ending June 30. 1905, had a
value of $827,000,000. which was less by
$51,000,000 than 'the average exports for
the five preceding years. In accounting
for this the secretary says owing to
the short wheat crop there was a de
crease in the export of that cereal
amounting to $41,000,000. of $5.000 000 in
the exports of packing: house products,
and another $5,000,000 in fruits and oth
er minor items. The increase included
$!! 350 000 in cotton. $4,700,000 in oil cake
and oil cake meal. $4,000,000 in vegeta
ble oils and $2,000,000 in rice and vari
ous minor products.
"During the last 16 years." the sec
retary says, "the domestic exports of
farm products have amounted to $12.
000.000.000, or $1,000,000,000 more than
enough to buy all the railroads of the
country at their commefeial value, and
this with a mere surplus for which
there was no demand at home."
Secretary Wilson tiolnts out that the
farmer is taking an important part in
developing the manufacturing interests
of the country by furnishing raw ma
terial, and that he has also become u
banker. The farm contributions in
manufactories during the years were
$:;,679,0O0,00O. Under the recent amend
ment to the national banking act al
lowing the establishment of banks with
a capitalization of less than $50,000,
there have been 1,754 such banks estab
lished in the last year, nearly every
one of which is located in a rural com
munity and the capital furnished by
farmery. Speaking of the increase in
deposits in banks by farmers, the sec
retary states:
South Central states' Growth.
"In the North Central states farmers
have been depositing money in the
banks until the rate of interest on de
posits has fallen so low that they have
diverted a large portion of their savings
to uprtimnunt Inrpatmonlc Tn oriite off
the fact that the banks do not receive
and keep all or most of the farmers
savings, the increase of bank deposits
in agricultural states and larger reg
ions is most extraordinary. In Iowa
and South Dakota the increase was 14.9
per cent; Nebraska, 13.5; Kansas, 9.7;
North Dakota, 25.
"Still more remarkable is the bank
statement for the South central states.
Deposits increased 18.1 per cent in Tex
as, 21.4 in Oklahoma, 24.1 in Arkansas,
and 45.7 in Indian Territory, while
throughout that geographic division the
increase was 22.3 per cent. The general
average increase for the United States
was 13.5 per cent.
"For the first time in the financial his
torv of the south deposits in the banks
of that region now exceed $1,000,000,000.
"The foregoing remarkable Increase In
bank deposits in agricultural states, as
well as the increase in the number of
small country banks, are directly and in
directly because of the profits that have
come to the farmers from the operation
of their farms. The man with the hoe
has become the man with the harvester,
and the depositor and shareholder of the
oank.
Gain in Farm Values.
Analyzing the increase of the value of
rarms, air. wuson says:
"Figured in dollars of gain per acre,
the increase during the five years past of
medium farms were in the north central
division. $11.25: In the western division
$5.36: in the north Atlantic, $5.26; in the
south Atlantic division. $4.93, and in the
south central division, $4.66. The average
increase for the United States was BIA
The returns showed that farms of less In
tensive culture and crops have increased
in value less than the farms having more
valuable crops and receiving high cul
ture. Farmers are improving their cultu
ral methods and changing from less to
more profitable crops. Other causes for
higher values are better buildings, better
fences, tile draining, new facilities for
transportation, more railroads and bet
ter wagon roads.
"The cotton fads have Increased in
value $460,000,000, so that it might be said
that during the past five years the cotton
planters have six crops, one of them a
permanent Investment promising to pay
a good return year by year. Hay and
grain rarms show an increase or (2,000,
000,000; live stock farms a still larger
gain: farms $369,000,000; tobacco farms $57.
000,000; rice farms $3,300,000; fruit farms
$97,000,000, and vegetable farms $113,000,000."
The report concludes:
"Should there be no relapse from Ills
present position as a wealth producer,
three years hence the farmer will find
that the farming element, about .15 per
cent of the population, has produced an
amount of wealth within ten years equal
to one-half of the entire national wealth
produced in three centuries.
"Great as has been the work underta
ken and accomplished by this department,
gratifying: as have been the results, be ft
remembered that we are still at the
threshold of agricultural development,
and that the educational work that has
led to such good results has only been
extended as yet to a portion of our ag
ricultural population. There Is not an
intelligent, patriotic citizen in the union
who will not say with his whole heart:
'Let the good work go on. '

Leavenworth Tourist Tolls of His Ex

Leavenworth, Kan., Nov. 27. The
Times says:
H. E. Clavin. son of Hugh Clavin of
Lowemont, is visiting his parents after
an absence of ten years, five spent in
searching for gold in Montana and the
last live in the Klondike. He is located
at Bonanza. 12 miles from Dawson, on
the Canadian side. Clavin came into
the Times office to have '- Times sent

Sprague, an old Leavenworth boy who
went to the Klondike is 1898 from Fort
Benton. The two' Leavenworthians
are chums in the frozen north and "say
that a copy of the Times in that coun
try is the most welcome thing they
know of.
Mi". Clavin is a very interesting con
versationalist and a Klondike enthusi
ast. He intends returning there, leav
ing here about Janary 1. He will make
the trip over the ice and snow so as to
be at the diggings in time for the spring

when the boats will commence running,
he will get there too late to do any
Gold Is Obtained.
Regarding the manner of thawing the
ground to get out the gold he said:
"It was formerly the custom to thaw
the ground by burning wood fires, and
this was all right when miners first
went in because there was much wood
along the streams, but now it is all
used up and costs about $16 a cord. We
use steam for thawing the ground now
as we cannot get coal. The boiler is
connected to a long, hollow steel drill
with a diamond point. On the end of
the drill are four points through which
the steam is forced by hydraulic pres
sure. There is a tap or hole near the
top of the drill to which the steam nine
Diphtheria a Specialty
Diphtheria seems to be spreading
rapidly, not only throughout our city.
but many other cities. Help has been
called for from other states for some
thing to prevent this terrible malady
which is reaping a harvest at this time.
For this reason is this article written.
I have been a practitioner for over
thirty-five years and have seen every
remedy used ami experimented witn
which has ever been presented to the
medical world. In some cases they
brought good results and in others,
and by far the majority of oases,
death followed. But I must confess
for the benefit of humanity, that there
has recently appeared a remedy more
wonderful in its action than all others.
It not only cures every case if proper
ly applied and taken in time, but it
will actually prevent the spreading of
this loathsome disease.
This is Prof. G. G. Robinson's
Golden Chemical Compound, so well
advertised throughout our city and
state. This is the nrst time 1 ever al
lowed my name to be used in public
print advocating any remedy, and onlv
do so now for the benefit of mothers
and their little sufferers. This is the
safest and" surest preparation I have
even tried. And the only mystery to
me is that all pnysicians do not adopt
its use at once. I can refer to many
other physicians throughout the state
who have used this remedy sucessfullv.
There are others in Topeka who know
, of its merits and will endorse what I
say. 1 nave used it to my own satis
faction and am ready to say that the
Golden chemical Compound will
actually prevent or cure diphtheria
And I am now ready to treat all cases
of diphtheria by the new method and
no fear need be felt if 1 am called in
lime. Delays are dangerous.

is connected. After the frost is thawed
from the ground down a distance of
about six feet we are able to dig a
space about it several feet square. It
used to be that the miners would thaw
out the ground in the winter and then
work it over in the summer, but this
is not necessary now as the ground,
after being thawed by steam, seems to
fall apart like sand.
The New Gold Country.
"Tanana, on the American side, is
the coming gold country. There are
thousands of miles of land where not a.
shovel full of dirt has been turned.
About $4,000,000 were taken out of there
during the last year.
"February 14 with the thermometer 63
degrees below zero several of us started
for this country. We traveled thirty
three days. We took along 800 pounds
of provisions for every two men. but
when we got there were nearly out. A
fellow who had taken 175 tons of stuff
there during the summer, such stuff as
could not be sold in Dawson, charged us
$1 a pound for everything we needed,
chains and ropes included. Fairbanks,
a town of about 6,000, is the largest in
this district. It is a better country thau
that in which I am located."
Work by Moon's Light.
"How can you work in the wintertime,
with no sun?" was asked.
"We have a moon throughout the days
when there is no sun. The moon shines
almost as brightly as does the sun here
at 3 o'clock in the afternoons. But not
every day. We get accustomed to the
long days when the su shines foT about
six months and can easily tell when it is
time to go to bed. We get used to it.
"I would rather be up there with the
thermometer 50 below zero tban to spend
another wet day such as Thursday was
here. I have heard more thunder and
seen more lightning the few days I have
been here, than I have since I have
