1r TOPEKA MAN GIVES TESTIMONY Open Letter Telling What , Was Done for Him, Had Been Sick for Over a Year. TRIED MANY DOCTORS But None Could Even Re lieve His Pain. Hot Springs Doctors Cured Him in a Day.

Patients 'who have been cured by the Hot Springs Doctors at their other institutes. The Hot Springs Doctors have been located in Topeka less than two weeks, but their waiting rooms are crowded daily with suffering sick people, and several hundred patients have already been accepted for treatment and are being rapidly cured, From these pa tients who are being cured testimonials have already commenced to pour in. A typical case of what Hot Springs Treatment will do when properly used Is shown In the case of R. L. Harpole, --of 730 Chestnut St., Topeka. Mr. Har pole has been sick for over a year. He has been treated by a number of the most prominent and reputable physi cians in the State, but his case proved a baffling one, and despite all efforts to relieve him his condition grew grad ually worse. Finally after his pains had become so severe that the doctors could find no drug powerful enough to relieve him, in despair, as a drowning man giasps at a straw, he consulted the Hot Springs Doctors. Dr. Kinsey told Mr. Harpole that Hot Springs treatment would give him back his health and treatment was commenced. In regard to the treatment Mr. Har pole makes the following signed state ment: "Topeka. Kan.. June 9, 1907. "For 28 days I had a severe brain racking pains. I could not rest or pleep. I did not average three hours sleep a night. I had been treated by several of the best doctors in Topeka but none of them were able to relieve my pains or even help me the least bit. Last Thursday afternoon I com menced treatment of the Hot Springs Doctors. Two doses of the Hot Springs treatment relieved me entirely and I have had no ache nor pain since. I now sleep soundly all night long. "R. L.

The street commissioner Is looking tor the man who stretched a barbwire across the alley in the rear of Adams street and temporarily blockaded the thoroughfare. "All the Shylocks In Topeka are not Hebrews," sighed an improvident young man as he went to pay an un usually exorbitant monthly premium on a small loan.

It is a noticeable fact that since County Attorney Scbenck has soldered the lid in position, that the noble red mm who formerly came to Topeka for their firewater are patronizing other cities. The city has not done anything tow ards purchasing its asphalt repair plant and meanwhile the asphalt pave ments that couia oe paicnea ana saveu are grad-iaily getting in a worse con dition. Red raspberries, as well as their Mak brothers, have at last reached the city markets and are crowding strawberries which have held the boards for the past six weeks off the front row. . According to a man who tried. It costs more to take a bicycle trip across country than it does to travel in tne best of style on railroad trains. But just think of all the exercise one misses on the latter! Oklahoma City will open a series of four games here tomorrow. At Okla homa City on their recent trip the White Sox took three out of four from the Mets. This ought to Insure a good crowd tomorrow.

Eddy,1 Written presumably in her own hand on June 7, , 1907, from Concord, N. . H.. to Joseph T. Love well of Topeka, goes a good -ways to prove that Mrs. Eddy, the head of the Christian Science church, is neither in sane nor dead, both of which charges have been made against her recently. Mrs. Eddy's letter bears every evi dence of being the genuine article. The writing Is bold aiid scrawling, with dashes of heavy shading and resem bles closely the facsimiles of Mrs. Ed dy's writing which have been printed from time to time in various maga zines. The envelope in which the let ter was received was addres&ed in an entirely different hand, apparently that of one of Mrs. Eddy's secretaries. The envelope was sealed on the back with a large blue seal embossed with the Eddy coat of arms. At the head of the note paper on which the letter is writ ten is an elegantly embossed coat of arms In gold, and the words, "Pleasant View, Concord, N. H.," similarly embossed.- The coat of arms on both seal and letterhead consists of various mediaeval monsters, rampant, and the two inscriptions, "Trta juncta in uno" (Three Joined in one) and "Vincere aut mori" (To conquer or die). This Is the coat of arms of the McNeil family of Edinborough, Scotland, with which family Mra Eddy supposed for a time rhe was related, but which relation- snip she has since substantially repu diated. Mrs. Eddy's letter to Pr-if. Lovewell had to do with the geneologlcal his tory of her family, and is in response to a letter written to her a short time ago by Prof. Lovewell. In telling how ne nappenea to write to Mrs. Eddy, froi. Lovewell says: some time ago a friend, who is a great admirer of Mrs. Eddy and a member of the Christian Science church, gave mo a number of copies of Alfred Henry Lwis' magazine, Human Lire, containing an extend ea article by Sibyl Wilbur entitled The story of the real Mrs. Eddy. "This article seems to be endorsed and authenticated to a certain extent by Mrs. Eddy herself, and I was espe cially interested in one paragraph of the opening article of the series which said, in speaking of Mrs. Eddy's pa rentage: The earliest emigrant ancestor of the Sanbornton Bakers was undoubt edly John, who was a freeman in Charlestown, Mass. -.In direct descent comes Joseph (Baker), born in 1714, who was a deacon of . the Congrega tional church, held a captain s com mission, and was the surveyor of sev eral towns In that part of the colony or New Hampshire which was claimed by Massachusetts, among the rest, of Pembroke, where he afterwards set tled. He married Hannah Lovewell, enly child of Captain John LovewelL the celebrated warrior who lost his life in the severe battle with the Indians at Pigwacket, now Fryeburg, Me., called Lovewell's fight, April 18, 1725. Han nah Lovewell was born at Dunstable and as his sole heir inherited the lands assigned to her father in Pem broke. This Joseph Baker and Han nah Lovewell were the grandparents on her father s side of Mrs. Eddy. "Being thoroughly familiar with the Lovewell ancestry, I knew that the statement concerning Hannah Love well was an error. Hannah was not the only child of Captain John Love well. He also had two sons, John and Nehemlah. John's son married Nehe miah's daughter, and their son Neha- miah was my father. Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy is therefore the great great granddaughter of Captain John Lovewell, descended from Hannah Lovewell. while I am the great great grandson of Captain John Lovewell, descended equally from his sons Ne hemiah and John. 'I wrote to Mrs. Eddy a brief note, merely calling her attention to this error, and without thought of reeeiv ng a reply. Her reply frankly admits that she was mistaken in the matter." The following is Mrs. Eddy's letter to Prof. Lovewell; Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., June 7. 1907. Mr. J. T. Lovewell, Ph. D., Academy of Science. "Dear Sir: You will please to ac cept my thanks for your correction of the only child. History inaccurate is no history. I would have informed myself before writing that as history but as hearsay I said it. very truly yours. Girl Catches 80 Pound Fish. Leavenworth, Juno 15.

"I have been taking Peruna for six weeks and am happy to say that it has had the desired effect. My liver is in good condition, constipation disap peared, and I no longer feel any or the symptoms of catarrh.

"Then I wish I was in Dixie. Hooray! Hooray! In Dixie land I'll take my stand To live and die for Dixie. Hooray! Hooray! Away down south in Dixie." 'Twas only a cdowd of little negro boys singing and dancing to the music of an old banjo played by the one white boy In the crowd and yet it was without a doubt the happiest little bunch one could find In this busy old world. Ragged and black their faces fairly shone with happiness and when the white boy, called "Young Massa" by the negroes, told some droll story or sang- a snatch - of some original song, their teeth shone like rows of small white- monuments, and .they rolled ' over and over with shouts of laughter. Young Massa was always popular with everyone. He- could tell the drollest story without the shadow of a erin and make his friends as wen as the negroes shout with laughter, or he would tell some patnetsc mcment with such pathos, that tears came in stantly to the eyes of the merriest. Everybody liked him and he was everybody's friend. The vears that have passed since those boyhood days down in Dixie have not" Changed his droll humor one bit.
