1st. SICKNESS HND DISEASE GIVE WAY UNDER DR. COOKINHAM'S NEW TREATMENT! THE BURGEON'S KNlFfc: IS NOT USED. HEALTH AND HAPPINESS GREET THOSE WHO ARE TREATED BY NATURAL. METHODS. STRANGE, ISN'T IT ? that any man or woman would for a moment consider the old ways of treating when my new discoveries are positively known to do things entirely beyond the conception of the old time doctors, who are today prescribing the same blue mass pills, belladona plasters or quinine for any and every disease, and clamor loud for "'operations." No matter how slight the disorder they urge the use of the knife. They are giving their patients statements as facts about the "nonsense" of natural methods, yet they have never investigated the subject or perhaps never even talked to a person who had tried natural methods for the cure of disease. Do not take the advice of some narrow-minded individual who knows absolutely nothing about advanced systems for the cure of disease, but consult an honest doctor who Will give you an honest opinion and cure you". OTHERS MAY TREAT, I CURE. If you can not call, write. One visit preferred. Authorized by the State to Treat Chronic, Nervous and Special Diseases D. A. COOKINHAM, M. D. Hours p to 12, 2 to 9, 7 to 8.

Sleeping at night in a 20-cent room and tramping the streets by day in search of work, Albert R. Williams, a young preacher, who has chosen to live the life of the New York poor this summer instead ot taking a vacation abroad, has found in the first forty-eight hours of his or deal that New York city has lots of sympathy, but few Jobs for the boy who comes here wltnout money, reier ences or technical training to win his bread. Mr. Wrilliams was graduated recent ly from the Hartford Theological school with high honors and a valuable scholarship. Before assuming the duties of a pulpit, however, he resolv ed to study the conditions among the poor of the slums at first hands. He has cut himself off entirely from his friends and relatives. Eight dollars, one cheap suit of old clothes and a cap formed the full ac coutrement of the young man when he set out. In the first two days of his wanderings he found no work. Mr. Williams will continue at his self-imposed task. His money is rap idly dwindling and he is living, as cheaply as possible so as to make it last until he gets a job.

Come to Oakland; where even ani mals are progressive, showing the ef fects of education. P. C. Moore has a cow, born and reared in the family which has developed such a taste for the current events of the day, as to devour every daily paper within reach. Saturday evening, soon after the pa cer boy s visit, she was found near the paper box. the paper gone and she deliberately digesting its contents. The Japanese social at Mr. Steele's last Friday evening was a complete success. The Japanese bill of fare costing from 1 to 2 3 cents afforded no little amusement. As the guests were unable to translate the Japanese words, they were at a loss to know what they had ordered until it was placed before them. The W. F. M. S. was pleased with the financial results, as the sum realized will help .them in raising the money to support a teach er in China. Dr. Chas. F. Ensign, medical missionary, Tai Au Fu, China, writes: "Fifteen dollars United States money will support a day school teacher for one year. We have so r any calls for teachers In places where there has never been a school that we are unable to supply the de mand. We are opening up new work, and our borders are constantly en larging, but without new or Increased supply of funds. No people in the world need the gospel worse than the Chinese. They are surely changing and Christianity ought to take them Commercialism is takins firm root and if the Christian nations don't work now, they will lose to a great extent their opportunity, for China is fast in the footsteps of japan in mis re spect." CIRCUSJS HERE. John Robinson Show Arrives fcarly Sunday Morning. Qhurch Services Held in the Big Tent. HE TALKS OF KANSAS. Rev. J. Stanley Wellington's Eulogy of Ingalls. Services Held Over the Grave of Judy Plamondon. The John Robinson circus arrived over the Rock Island ' railway In four sections, each a double header the longest and heaviest show train' ever in the west, early Sunday morning. A transfer was made , to the Santa Fe and the cars switched to the fair ground where the circus horses, wagons and novelties were unloaded. It was at this point hundreds of men, women an children were congregated and it was noticeable that the youth of "70" was there in larger numbers than the youth of "7." These early morning signtseers and their enthusiasm was proof conclusive that Topeka is one of tne greatest show towns in the country, Rev. J. Stanley Wellington, minister with the circus, held church for the circus folk in one of the tents during tne morning. Acrobats, clowns, tumb lers, riders, drivers, and other show people sang "Jesus Lover of My Soul "Rock of Ages" and "There Were Nine ty and Nine. Billy Montgomery, clown, who was recently converted at one of Mr. Wellington s midweek meet ings, offered the opening prayer, plead ing that every sinner in Topeka be shown the error of his way. Rev. Mr. Wellington took for his subject. "Kan sas and Her Great Men, Past and Pres ent." He argued that every great man was a striking instrument of God, and that the great men of Kansas were no exception to the rule. He paid beautl ful tribute to the late Senator John Ingalls. Of Kansas as a state he cited that her glory and honor rested with the young men and women now verg ing into manhood and womanhood. TO THE POINT.

Brewin. the Burlington, N. J tailor who wandered away from home and family four years ago and was found reeentlv working in a dyeing and cleaning establishment in Plainfleld, came to a realization of his surround ings Sunday. Brewin, who is supposed to, have been a sufferer from aphasia. mental disorder which deprives its victim of memory antedating a certain time, has been unable to recau me in cidents in his earlier life. Yesterday Dr. Buchanan, a Burling ton physician, and his father called upon Brewin. Both had known the sufferer years ago. At sight of them Brewin started, "sometnmg broke in his head," as he put it, and a flood of light illumined the past. He thought Iib had left home the day before and spoke of events which took place at the time or nis aisapuearaiice a though not more than z nours naa intervened. He asked for members of his family and begged to be taken to them at once. FIFTY THOl'SAXD A YEAR. A Huge Record of Criminal Operations In Chicago. Chicago. July 1.

Dr. Holmes estimated that there are 150 of these hospitals in Chicago, -only 25 of which have been exposed and had their mail stopped. A Gala of $23,000,000. New York, July 1. Figures com piled by Collector of Customs Strana- han at the close of the fiscal year 1906-07 with comparisons show that fully $23,000,000 more of duties have been collected at the port of New York during the fiscal year closed on Saturday than during the preceding one. This includes tonnage receipts. head tax, etc.. as well as the duties on merchandise. The receipts from all In this city are many people who came here from Ohio. That accounts for their enthusiasm today. Let them say it and this is "Governor's Day" in honor of Governor John F. Robinson, who is here with his 1,000 people and horse! the John Robinson Circus. This amuse ment institution started in 1S21 from New York and after touring the south went into winter, quarters at Cincinnati Ohio. It has wintered there ever since and because of i-thls . Is known as a strictly Buckeye show, ?. A baby lion was born Sunday. It has been named "Johnson" in honor of Roy Johnson, the popular chief clerk of the general passenger department of the Santa Fe railway. . It will be placed in the wild animal nursery with the other baby lions "Roosevelt," "Taft" and Bryan" and raised on the bottle. "Blinky," the third assistant errand boy of the State Journal, writes thus of the circus: . I gess pritty nere evry buddy and his unkle and all the kids in town lncludin yures cheerfully went to see the big Robinson show. The editir sed 1 could rite it up but He be ding busted if I kno wher to begin, the show was a hummer all rite.

They will hav it over agin to mte. Society people a.-e interested in the Topeka girl with the John Robinson cir cus. She was bom and reared here and for this reason she is trvina- tn pnr..i ner ioi..tily. Circus folk say she ap pears in the "Smart Set" drill of the show and is the handsomest woman in circus life. Parties are organized to go to the circus tonight and they figure it will be jolly fun picking her out. At Judy Planiondon's Grave. The circu3 people yesterday after noon assembled in the Catholic ceme tery for the purpose of holding the Circus memorial service over the grave of Judy Plamondon, who not so long ago was one of them in the flesh. He died here following an operation for appendicitis. The circus band was present and played "Nearer My God to Thee and "I'm Just Beyond the Heights, the latter a composition composed by Antonio Olivetto, leader ? .thS. ItaIlan concert band with the ,n, Robinson circus. Rev. J. Stanley Wellington, minister with the circus, said among other things: ."e are assembled in this city of the dead to recall the Past, sanctify the Present and glorify the Future, iartn. that contains the pathetic dust or loved ones is sacred in the highest: rriend now mingles with the clover of the sod. the boughs of the tree and the petals of the rose.

To my mind there is no doubt that the spirit of Judy Plamon- iin iiuvcrs near ana sees, and feels cina nears the actions pmnfinno words of those who loved him living, and love him still.

Everv tear that drops upon his mound of clay speaics volumes ror him; every flow er placed there is symbolic of his big neart ana grand traits of character. Like services were held over the grave of the late Allan Sells. The Ball Game. The Robinson circus team was de feated yesterday afternoon by the To peka Eagles. The score of the game was 1 to 0. It was one of the pret tiest amateur games ever seen in To peka and a large crowd of circus peo ple attended tne game. The rooting or tne snow people was great and if the Iopeka fans would only root about fifth as hard for the Hurlburt bunch there would be no question about winning the pennant. Eddie Groom, a young Topeka player, pitch ed ror the eagles and pitched a no hit game. Mr. Fritz Gustavus Ulrich. one of the young German clowns of the Robinson, show, worked on the- rub ber for "the circus aggregation and only allowed four hits. Campbell caught for the circus team. Both are Iowa ball players and show class. The game was . a remarkable one. The clowns and loop the loop artists vied with each other to see who could pull off the greatest hair raising stunt. The feature or the fame was the com pleting of a double play by Peter Cor nelius Mackcammon while in mid air. At the end of the seventh inning the playing was stopped to allow the Giants and a Kansas City colored team play. I;- The Parade In the Morning. The parade of the John Robinson cir cus took place this morning shortly af ter eleven o'clock. It was one of the bet parades ever seen in Topeka by a circus of this class. It was a parade that was novel and original in its make up. The wagons formed the chief fea ture of the circus and it Is to the end of making that part of it spectacular that the owners of the circus bend their efforts. The wagons in their designs represented buildings of different class es of architecture which have been in vogue in different eras of history. Some of them date back Into mythological times and are clever suggestions of those periods. One of the novelties of the circus was a double team of gnus pulling a small sized wagon. A team of twenty small ponies also attracted a great deal of favorable comment.

REGTJIiATlOX OF EXPRESS CO. Representative II. V. O'Shant Tells . of Bill That Failed. Hays City, Kan.. June 27, 1907. To the Editor of The State Journal: In your issue of the 26th you make reference to express companies cutting a melon to the tune of ?24,000,000, being twice the amount of its capital stock, to be divided araoni the stock holders, and that the people who pay the charges for express service will not be surprised at the announcement, You further state that the express business usually escapes regulation. for the reason that few Individuals do sufficient business by express to cause them to make complaints. In this you are absolutely correct as I have personally observed at the late session of the legislature. Xou will, upon examination, find that somewhat late in the session I introduced a bill In tho House requiring the Board of Railroad Commissioners to inquire In to express charges within the state and if found excessive, to substitute Seen on the Circus Grounds by a State Journal Cartoonist. fill h Lvai L'.ff Chferen&'circus too uears 0-3p ere- excepPCcxrusov ... ,'V ztsjr therefor a reasonable rate or rate The bill was unanimously recommend,, ed by the committee and was report C(t back to-the House where it linger ed for some time and all efforts to aci- vance it were fruitless. The legisla- 11 V VJ t ill. r l 1. 1 1 v. v i ji i i .-i . j 1.11111(1111111 was in evidence from the date of tho Introduction of the bill to the close of the session and from personal obser vation had matters well in hand as I found in an effort 'to" have the bill ad-, vanced. Finally, upvn the appoint ment of the revision committee and during Its several sessions this parti cular bill had the especial attention of at least two members of the com mittee whom I might name and I found that after each session the bill was fast nearing the end of the cal endar, that is to say, it was relegated to the rear. Several gentlemen in the House, almost at the close of the ses sion, recognized the Importance of this bill and at on of the evening sessions had it called up to be placed into the "omnibus" but immediately an objection was raised by a member of the revision committee, but sug gested that if the bill were amended by inserting the words "upon com plaint" that further objection would be withdrawn. With this compromise it was understood that the bill would , be passed the following day, but it so happened to be the last day for tha j consideration of bills, and the Stand ard oil bill having the right-of-way, the hour of twelve o'clock arrived and thefoill died upon the calendar. I had at the time of the introduction of tha bill, sent out seventy-five or eighty letters of inquiry regarding express rates to wholesalers and Jobbers and in reply to many of my letters th statement was made that the exprea service was so little used and though regarding the charges extremely high, they did not deem it of sufficient Im portance to enter complaint. Comr paring the dividend to be declared, with the statement of the legislative agent of the express companies befor the railroad committe one must con clude that they are far from bein& bankrupt as we were led to believe. The shipping by express at times Is a great convenience and those uslngr the service expect to pay tnereror. but the charges are undoubtedly ex cessive and unreasonable and shouiA be regulated. Yours truly, H. W. O'SHANT. CAN'T FIND JOHN D. United States Marshal la Barred front Forest Hill. Cleveland, O.. July 1. United States Marshal Chandler was an earry visitor today at Forest Hill, the sub urban home of John D. Rockefeller. Chandler, however, did not get farther than the lodge at the entrance of th estate. Patrick Lynch, ths lodga keep er, declared positively that Mr. Rocke feller was not at Forest Hill. A car riage entered in the gates about this time and the marshal stopped it long enough to inspect the occupants. Mr. Rockefeller was not in the vehicle, however, and it proceeded up to th Rockefeller residence. Marshal Chandler, upon being Ques tioned as to whether he had a sub poena for Mr. Rockefeller, declined to discuss the subject. CASTOR I A For Infants and Children.
