t GREAT JOY FOR A JOKER Cambridge Grocer Put up , a Job On Cooper Failed to Find HenrlnffDur ing Search On Two Conti nent but Oh loan Fooled HlniV noston, Feb. 10. This city is at present in the midst of an excitement beyond anything that it has experi enced in recent years. old and young, rich and poor, all seem to have become beside them selves over an individual who was a stranger to lioston until a few days ago. The man who hns created all this turmoil s L. T. Cooper, of Dayton. Ohio, who Is at present introducing his preparations in this city for the first time. Cooper 1 man about thirty years of age who has acquired a fortune within the past two years by the sale if some preparartiona of which he is the owner. Reports from other cities that pre ceded the young man her were of the most startling nature, many of the leading dailies going so far as to state that he had cured In public places deafness of years' standing with one of his preparations. Physicians gen erally contradicted this statement, claiming the thing to be Impossible, hut the facts seemed to bear out the statement that Cooper actually did so. In consequence people flocked to him by thousands, and his preparations sold like wildfire. Many of these stories were regarded as fictitious in Boston, and until Cooper actually reached this city little attention wan paid a them . Hardly had the young man arrived, however, than he began demonstrations, as he calls them, in public, and daily met people afflicted with deafness, and with a single application of one of his prep arations actually made deaf people hear again. One or those treated a day or two ago. was Patrick McLaughlin, a well known grocer of Cambridge .who ,in iinsuer to a question by a reporter, said: "Yes. it is true that my hearing has been restored by Mr. Cooper. I have been deaf for twenty years, and it seems so wonderfully strange to be able to hear again that I have not yet become accustomed to the. change. In years past I had been to leading spe cialists, both in this, country and in Kf.rope, who had failed to help me, and I had long ago given up all hope. "When Mr. Cooper came to Boston. I went to him merely as a joke, and expected to have some fun a: his ex pense, for I really did not think he could do anything for me. However, the joke is on me, and I am tn-Iy glad of It. I now hear perfectly, and you can publish the news to the world if you want to, for I think others ought to know about this man Cooper and what lie is doing. I do not know how to thank him enough for what he has lone for me." Statements of this character have been made by others, and it seems to be an established fact that Cooper's work is genuine.

Sale BRAZING CASTIRON SUCCESSFUL. Describing a new process for braz ing cast iron the February Popular Mechanics' states: "For years steel has been success fully brazed, but the process for cast iron is comparatively new, the first work of the kind only dating back a, couple of years, and that with indif ferent results. With the exception of the applica tion of a chemical, the process is the same as for brazing steel. Cast iron has no elasticity and is so brittle that the blow of a hammer will break it. The chemical overcomes this, so that when the iron expands under the in tense heat and then contracts, the There is Only One "Bromo Quinine" That is . :. Laxative Bvomo Quinine .
