THE REPUBLIC: SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 25. 1900.
Avoid the Deadly Knife and Keep From 'Neath the
Gloomy Shadows of the Sanitarium
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
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
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. Sunday.

Strange Habit of Many Natives of
the West Indies.
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
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.

POLICE PLAN RAID
ON WALL STREET.
Increasing Number of Dishonest
Failures Has Aroused New
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
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
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

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
