It is estimated Eastern Siberia, including
tiie region of the Yen.ssei, will alone give
an annual production of gold of the value
of af>c.ut |IS,(KX<.OOO. With the cajaipletion
oi the Trans-Siberian line, then- ».ll be
Sotir great and steady producers of gold—
the I n:ted States. South Africa. Australia
and Siberia. « th her neighboring Chinese
territories. Beside.-* thif**. there must con
tinue to exist a number of other pro
:s. iike Mexico. Brazil. the Guianas,
firitish Columbia, Mexico. Germany. Aus
ti t-Hungury and Bolivia. But these, it
is believed, can never seriously compete
w :h the four producers just named.
Some details furnished by the Geographi
cal Society. of I'aris. confirm the stare-
Hi n:.- made from time to time- as to the
v -of llm |SM deposits in Siberia. The
particulars were given by M. E. D.
C. L . who went over the ground in the
company of a Kur-sian engineer, X. Th.
Sibachnikoff. They state that an lin
mensp development of the gold placers has
b i*ri carri'-d on between the Ural and
Vladivostok. N where in the world, states
M. Le vat. are there such vast stores of
gold and spread over so large a surface.

It Is by the Natural Law of Things That the Cope,
land Practice Survives All Other
That Which Is Best, That Which Is of Greatest Service to lb.
kind Abides Always.
The wonder thnt three ye«r« »*«•
fullonril the presentation of such
curt** at these in manifold forms of
*erlous diir«*r Hurt »icWne»* in the
t opeland practice has passed away.
The wonder that three years ago
followed the presentation of snch
en re* as these in deafness under the
I opelund disco»ery has passed nnay
in a treat measure.
In the plare of this wonder tilers
is now that which abides and will
nlways abide—-the everlasting faith
of the people.
The people know In what they he
lleve. They know the skill and
truth of this practice. They know
that the physicians It Includes—l)oc
lor < opeland's associates, honored
by their association, and reflecting
honor upon It—are eonselentlons
men. too great to do wrong and too
learned to resort to mediocre mea
sures. They know that Doctor Cope
land himself is managing every de
tail of his practice. They know that
the enres which have filled these
columns are real cures of real peo
ple In this commnnity and region;
grateful and truthful people who
may he seen and Inquired of.
In snch unreserved measure has
this faith of the people been given
to this practice that It Is the wonder
of the medical world. Without any
sensational features It has steadily
grown and is to-day numerically
greater than three years ago, the
time of Its earliest work In this com
munity: greater than three years
ll go when the most Intense public in
terest was aroused by the announce
ment of the Discovery of the Cure
for Catarrh. It has that quality
stronger than sudden popularity; fhe
quality of abiding faltli. It has sur
vived all competition In similar
methods. If has triumphed over
rvery kind of method to reach the
sick. Whyf Because the truth al
ways it Is the natural law
of things. The best always snr\lves|
that which is of service to mankind
alvtays survives.
Men come suddenly Into n commu
nity and by false claims and glitter
ing promises or seusalional methods
may awaken Interest, lint their days
nre short. They may c*lst for a time
on the credulity off the people, but
fhey rannnt endure the test off ac
quaintance with them. It Is only
the real truth flint can survive.
That which Is off good pnrposc. off
honest Intentlou. of Intelligent di
rection, of real merit to the worlds
that endures always. And so it is true
not only that the ( opeland practice
Is greater to-day than at any time In
Its history, but that It will be great
er a year from now than It Is now
and that It will continue to Increase
m the years pass and the people
know more nnd more of the work
and skill which It compasses.
