THEYCOME FOR HUNDREDS
OF MILES TO SEE HIM
NOIIING SO WONDERFUL IN
TIIK DAYS OF SPECI
The success of Dr. Rea is attribut
ed to his special study of specialism.
Dt. Rea, student philanthropist, and
man of wide reputation,, having
given his entire time and practice to
a line of special diseases, which en
ables him from long experience in
handling these troubles to certainly
come forward as a master specialist.
Ilis facultv for mastering diseases his
ability to diagnose, and his plan of
treatment is not to be excelled by few
other physicians. Dr. Rea, although
a young man in life, a plain man,
and one who is used to the ups and
downs of life, puts himself on a level
with his patients and does not pro
fess or pretend to practice the old
plan of fashion, which is to look wise
and say nothing. lie knows disease:
he knows how to explain the symp
toms of disease^ he knows where to
look for disease, and the spot where
located, the most of all he knows
from experience, from what be has
done in the past, he can oertaianly
do for others in the future. It is
said by Dr. Rea's 'friends that he 'can
diagnose a 'disease of any patient
without asking them a single 'ques
tion, that being Che case, he is tnot
likely to 'doctor them foe the wrong
ailment^ lie will not takean incurable
disease and lead tlie patient ''to be-
Hievc that he can "cure them when
there is veally no hope for them.
His business is Sarge and
and it is said ha« movar been known
to reftese to treat .^patient wtoo is
worthy.and in need. A number of
important cases that we1 hereby take
the libortv to publi&, which iniighb

L. CRA1GTELLS'0F HIS TRIP
FROM CALIFOiRNvIA TO MAINE,
SUMMER TO WORKER A ND THE!
BEAUTIES OF .'SCENERY EN-!
Farmingtoa, Me.,'March .21, 1904.
The Alert—After 'three montl*
sojourn in the -sunny climate of!
Southern California,one'has a very
sensible.reali8ationa?eold chills ois
returning to a climate ^with the mer
cury near tbe zeso mairk in the mid
dle of Maieh, the time the old alma
nac says sprirtg ibegins.
The theory of the seentitic men oSj
the east a few years&go, that tiie
Gulf-stream was ahanging its course,
and the ooid waiters were a thing of
the past, has received a set (kick
after the experience of a winter with
the thermometer crangiqg from zero
io 4.j below.
Tne first experleBse of snow and
«x)ld was met in passing Hhe Sierra
llevada Mts. We t&en oossed the
most desolate eonntoy .of the state of
Nevada and artived in -Salt Lake
City where we stopped for the night.
A -satisfactory description .of the
City of the Saints would till .many
pages. In brief it is a edity of marve
lous beauty and prosperity. The
Mormon people with several of wshonj
we conversed, are very cordial..
Passing tlwough the open gate of
tlie ten acres enclosure we visited
firut, the Bureau of Information. A
young lady conducted us first to the
Assembly hall, a tine building of
5,000 capacity and next we entered
.the famous Tabernacle where we
commodated had listened to the
grand opera and the most famous
singers of the world. We missed
hearing che church services and the
strains of one of the largest organs
of the world- The Tabernacle is of
peculiar construction. Not a nail or
iron of any kind was used as the
young lady told us, Missouri was the
nearest point where nails could be
obtained at the time of the erection
of it and as only ox teams were at
hand the task was nearly impossible.
The great turtle shaped structure
was fastened with wooden pins and
leather. The Acoustic features are
wonderful. The sound of a pin
dropped on the floor at one end can
be distinctly heard at the other.
To the Temple "Gentiles" are not
admitted neither are tlie Mormon
women until after they are married,
the young lady remarking "this is a
part of our religion." The Temple
with its imposing towers with the
imago of the angel, Moroni proclam
ing "the everlasting gospel" from
the pinacle of one of the to ivcrs, is
a most beautiful structure.
Whatever opinion people may enter
tain of the leaders in their practice
of polygamy as brought out in the
senate investigation, to an unpre
judiced mind the Mormon people are
as honest an3 sincere in their relig
ious belief as any other christian
Their persecutions, their wander
ings through trackless dese'ts and
mountain passes, and the wonderful
prosperity which has attended the
building of Salt Lake City and bring
ing into furtility by irrigation the
barren soil of Uath is one of the won
derful acliievments of the 10th cen
Their belief, strange as it may ap
pear to us, in the Proplict Joseph
and the Hook of Mormon may not,
after all be any more absurd than is
the creed of some other churchs at
the present day. Future genera
tions may come to regard the exile
and wanderings of the Mormons as
mysterious and supernatural as was
that of the children of Isreal
Passing from Utah through the
mountainous state of Colorado over
the Denver & l$$o Grande R. one is
impressed with a sense of awe and
delight in witnessing the mouiatain
gouges and the deep canyons of the
(Morado and the Arkansas rivers.
R'ushing afcong through the Grand
Canyon 18 miles between «lid walls
teaching wp 2,000 feet passing through
the Royai Gorge of the Arkansas
3,000 feet of solid rook rising on
either side of the narrow pass brings
one to a sense of man's littleness in
the presence of God's handiwork in

boy was-saved" writes Mrs. W. Wat
kins of Pleasant City. Ohio- "Pneu
monia had played sad havoc with him
and a terrible cough set in besides.
Doctors treated him but he grew
worse every day. At length we tried
Dr. King's Xew Discovery for con
sumption and our darling was saved.

Reports from all over the state are
that the long winter has made feed
for stock scarce. Farmers are hoping
that the snow will melt soon and
leave the ground bare enough for
stock to graze on grass The ex
perience should show the necessity of
putting up more hay and raising
more feed stuff for there is always an
increasing demand for it in a country
where stock are increasing as fast as
in this state.

President Roosevelt will not be
