Varicocele and Stricture Can Be Cured Without the Horrors of Surgery, and Dr. Cook Does the Work. Nervo - Sexual Dsbility and Specific Blood Poison Treated by the Best Methods Known to Medical Science. (W. A, COOK, M. D.) It is unfortunate for the afflicted thatso many physicians place their patients In rrlvate sanitariums and hospitals to undergo surgical operations that are exceedingly distressing, dangerous and detaining from home and business, when their cases can he cured to stay cured by modern methods that are much milder and far more ef fective. While my patients can always depend upon the most careful and successful sur gical work when they demand it. or when the case Is such that It 1b absolutely re quired in order to brine about a cure, I have constantly endeavored, throughout all the years of my practice, to eo perfect my methods of treatment that a cure could be brought about without the aid of the knife. Tt is comparatively easy to cut out any offending portion of the human body, but an operation of this kind means a loss to the patient which can never be restored. If you have a sore on your hand, a surgeon can cure It by cutting oft the hand, but how much greater Is tho skill of him who cures the sore and leaves the hand for fu ture usefulness. It was this view of surgery and medicine that led me to perfect a method for treating Varicocele and Stricture which, without cutting or hvrnlng, or any other form of operation, cures the disease and restores the organs nfchelr natural healthy ondition. My system of treatment for both Varicocele and Stricture is the only one which cures without operation;-this system originated with me and is used ex clusively in my practice. The records of my office show cures, by this method, in 97 per cent of all cases taken. In Varicocele-, by means of my treatment, the engorged blood vessels are reduced to their natural state and the organs which thev supply are retored to a condition of health and full usefulness. The method is painless and requires no loss of time from business. In Stricture my treatment removes the obstruction without any pain or discom fort, simply by the remedies which the patient himself applies at home. Without the use of those dangerous drugs which enter into- the remedies given ny most doctors, and which leave such terrible after effecte, I cure all stages of Specific Blood Inlsoninir thoroughly and permanently not onlv the outward manifestations, but I rid the whole system of every vestige of tho poison, leaving the skin and scalp In a. clear, healthy, natural condition. ... ... In Ifervo-Se-xual disorders. I have also, as is well known to the medical profes sion generally, made great advancement over the old-time methods, and never mind how long the undermining conditions have been active, I can promise a, complete and permanent restoration to health and of all lost powers. I do not seek simply to tem porarily stimulate the weakened, nervous and physical system which, I nm sorry to say. is the method of most so-called specialists but to permanently build up the whole constitution of the patient and at the same time remove the underlying causes. ... ... Whenever it is possible to do so, I am very desirous of having the patient call at my office for a personal interview. If living away from the city, I will de duct the railroad fare paid from my regular fee. If you cannot call write your troubles fully. Many cases can be cured at home. Hours: 8 A. M. to 8 P.M.

Tou can't convince the coolie of the Grenadine Islands, West Indies, that there Is any barm In eating dirt. His own dis eases ought to convince him, but they don't. The rest of their diet Is simple and meager. For the most part they are vcgetarlnns. They eat rice, pease, curry and ghee, a spe cially prepared butter in great use. Most professing vegetarians do not exclude from their diet millt and eggs, but these coolies will not touch either, except when they aro in hospital and forced to do so. To hard workers In the cane fields under a scorching tropical sun such a frugal diet cannot be supposed to be productive of health or ro bustness. And when to this sort of food is added the luxury of dlrt-catlng. It is no wonder that these coolies are bloodies? and stiff jointed. These ills arc characteristic of the race. Coolie patients In tho English hospitals of Carrlacou. one of the Grenadine Islands, frequently axe found to have gravel hidden In their clothing, and they cry and beg for It. like the morphine cater for his dope. This stuff which they eat is a soft, slate colored or grayish stone. Sometimes the Sulverlzed dirt is made into cak.ee. If there m't much of this to be had, the coolies cat rags, paper and coke. A coolie who Is well along In the art of dirt-eating Is swollen all over tho body, and the muscles of his legs aro tense. His face Is uffy and has a distressing look of weariness and premature age. He is short of breath, and is unable to speak, so that he has to make signs to Indicate his condition. His tongue is swollen and flabby and lies In the floor of his mouth, from which he cannot raise It. from pure weak ness. It Is marked strongly with impres sions of the teeth. Ho has severe head aches, dimness of sight and pains in the abdomen. His skin 1 thin, flabby and lack ing of firmness, and even In the case of children feels like the skin of an aged per son. The complexion is pasty. But to have the diseases incident to dirt eating it Is not necessary to eat dirt inten tionally. Laborers In tho fields, who rarely wash their hands, have been known to take enough dirt into their stomach by handling their food with their unwashed hands to acquire all the tils which afflict those who eat dirt because they jlke It.

Increasing Number of Dishonest Failures Has Aroused New York Authorities. WASH-SALE BROKERS WANTED. Under the System in Arogue the Dealer Is Said to Use Cus tomer's Money in Betting That Speculator Loses. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. ' New Tork, Nov. 24 Detectives are pre paring to make rails in Wall street within a few drys. The District Attorney has or dered a crusade against the buckctshops and the brokers of presumed respectability, nho make a practice of "wash" Bales and who are deemed more dangerous to the community thnn the outlaws who do not pretend to have any dealings with tho ex changes. This move Is to be made as a result of the many failures that followed the general rise in stocks after election. As the profits cf their customers accumulalcd. brokers began to go to tho wall. In almost every case there wer large liabilities and the assets amounted to very little, usually noth ing beyond the problematical value of the offlce fixture.". Many small speculators have been reduced to destitution by the loss of their capital. Dlsltonciit AiKisrnments. Investigation has proeri that a largo proportion of the failures h.-uc been dis honest. If the orders for purchasing stock-3 were ever executed they were nothing more than "wash" transactions, purchases and sales made simultaneously and at the same rate, merely for the purpose of record. These "wash" deals are entered In tho books In such a manner that they apparent ly show legislative holdings of stock, while. In reality, the broker has nothing, and merely gambles that his customers will lose. If they do. lie makes everything; If they win too much he canot pay. A rising market means profits for the small oper ators, who are very rarely short. One of the leading bankers in this city consulted a member of the District Attor ney's staff to-day and made the astonishing statement that If prices had been made to go up for four weeks as they had for the week after election, fully one-half of the brokers doing business on the Consolidated Exchange would have had to suspend, and Wall street would have been lined with wrecks. So serious Is the condition deemed that I Captain McCIusky, Chief of the Detective 1 Bureau, has been Instructed to make a ' thorough investigation, and to proceed against all brokers against whom he can ' uuiam eviaencc or irregularities. He says he hopes to be able to make out cases against several men before they have a chanco to assign. "There are many firms in Wall street that do a fraudulent business," said Captain Mc Clusky. "They spring up like mushrooms, and it seems almost impossible to close them, for as soon as a demand is made for money they fail and go away. The mem bers of Hooper & Co. disappeared after their recent failure. Lawrence failed when a demand was made for $3,000. I think, how ever, that the arrest of Lawrence and his associates will have the effect of scaring similar firms In the street." Chester B. Lawrence, Jr.. Edward B. Un derbill and George R. Wolbert. who were arrested on Friday, after Lawrence had made an assignment tn tViiVirt m. .nrtv keeper, were arraigned In the Center Street l x-uucb uourc to-aay. magistrate Zeller in creased their ball to J5.000. Friends fur nished the necessary bonds and the men were released. The complainant in this casa is Mrs. Catherine Bouckendorff, who invest ed $3,000 through Lawrence, for which no accounting could be had. Lawrence did a large business and main tained several offices. The evidence goes to show that he "bucketed" most of the or ders of his customers, winning their money consistently until recently, when the con tinued advance In prices forced him to the wall.
