FOUGERE IS STAR OF
BRISTOL PIER OPENING
Beach Pleasure Resort, Under a

Many Pleasing Features
SANTA MONICA, May 28—With
strains of excellent music played by
the Lancaster orchestra and dainty
uance.-s and sopffs provided by Fougere,
the famous French comedienne, the
liristol pier cafe was opened this af
ternoon for the season under the man
agement of Harvey S. Winsor. A num
ber of automobile parties came out
from Los Angeles tonight and the cafe
war a scene of gayety until a late hour.
The cafe ha.s a capacity for seating
1200 persons, and at each end of the
big dining roum is a »Luku, where Man
ager Winsor has stationed a dozen ex
pert vaudeville artists to amuse t!i<>
diners. Fougere is considered far ahead
of any actress in her line ever brought
to this country. She portrays the act
ing of the girls in Maxim's in Paris in
a style that those who have seen both
pronounce very realistic.
The Bristol pier was constructed sev
eral years ago by a syndicate headed by
Lycurgus Lindsay, and is faid never to
have been profitable. It is well con
structed, and extends several hundred
feet out over the ocean. Automobiles

Winsor says he will endeavor to make

of the Bristol pier cafe.

manufacturers in the city. Mr. Swing
started the ball rolling by subscribing
$100 and through the chamber of com
merce, before which body the project
has been laid, an effort is to be made
to complete the fund.
"It is too important to the business
interests of the city to lay down now,"
said Mr. Swing, "and I want to see
this old town go ahead, and we can
do it."
The magnitude of Mr. Swing s
scheme has electrified the business men
of the city, and already the originator
of the project has received encourage
ment from all sides.
It is tho intention of the chamber of
commerce in this connection to conduct
booster excursions into the regions of
the southwest that geographically are
tributary to San Bernardino and be
come acquainted with tho business men
of those sections. The fight for equal
freight rates has already placed the
local merchants in a position to bet
ter compete with the dealers of other
cities.
Mr. Swing with Mayor S. W. Mc-
Nabb is making up a big party to go
to Upland on June 14 to attend the
celebration to be piven in that city and

STRAIGHTFORWARD STORY OF
ONE WOMAN SAVES ANOTHER
Mrs. Mai Schreiner, Encouraged by One Who Had Faced Death,
Takes Heart and Is Now Well and Happy
"If you could only know how
sick I have been for years, many
years, so ill that often I could not
keep even a spoonful of water on
my stomach, and how well I am
"My husband finally decided that he
would take me to California in the
hope that the rlimate there might help
me. I was dreadfully thin, and so
weak that X could scarcely walk. My
nerves were in such a dreadful state
that I could not control myself at all.
One minute 1 would ho laughing at
nothing at all; tho next I would be
crying and screaming with just as littlo
i ause.
"Before we were ready to start for
the coast the doctors advised Mr.
Schrelner not to start with me, for
the chances were that I would die on
the way. But I was doing no good
here, and I was so miserable that I
had as leave die as not, if there were
no relief from that terrible pain and
awful nervous spells that came on
oftener and oftener as the disease pro
gressed.
"Well, we But 1 the trip, though I did

»ncr and oftener as the disease pro-
Well, we made the trip, though I did
come near fulfilling the doctors' predic
tion and dying on the way. I was in
such a state when we reached L.os An
geles that I fell senseless on the plat
form of the station when we left the
train, and had to be hauled away in an
ambulance.
14 Months of Suffering
"There followed fourteen months of
just the same agony. Fourteen months
of slim diet and medicine, and suffer
ing, and nervousness and fear, until
finally my husband brought me back
home. 1 suppose I was really brought
homo to.die, and I did not much care.
All that year and two months of pain
and suffering and lack of nourishment
had weakened me so much that I could
not walk alono when we reached Den
ver, but had to be almost carried to the
cab from the train shed.
"I was Just dying- by inches, that's
what I was, and I knew it, and gave
up walk alone when we reached Mr.
r, hut had to be almost carried to the
b from the train shed.
'I was Just dying by inches, that's
lat I was, and I knew it, and gave
all hope. So one day when Mr.
hreiner came to me with a copy of
the News and tried to tell me of a new
treatment that had cured a case just
like mine, and as bad, I would not
ten to him.
"'Don't try to tell me about somo
new doctor,' I cried. 'I've seen the last
doctor ever cried. to see. I've taken
tor I ever want to see. I've taken
medicine and paid bills all these years,
and look where it has left me.'
Go Ask the Patient
" 'Then we won't go near him," re
plied my husband. 'We will just go
over by Elitch's gardens and see this
Mrs. Carpenter, who was cured. Let's
go and ask her whether it is true, or
Just a story made up.'
"I finally agreed to that, and we
drove over, I so sick that I was hardly
able to hold up my head. I almost
collapsed when we got inside the
house, but I was still able to sit up
and speak. I remember that I had on
a thick, heavy veil, and I would not
take It off, because I was ashamed that
she should Bee my yellow skin, my
bony face and the circles under my
eyes.
"I told her right straight what we
had come for. I said: 'Mrs. Carpenter,
I am a very right straight what
1 come for. I said: 'Mrs. Carpenter,
m a very sick woman and I want
you to tell me the truth. I cannot live
many weeks In this condition, and I
had given up all hope until I saw an
account of your recovery from just
such a disease as mine. Now, I want
you to tell me truly whether you were
cured, and whether there is hope for
me.'
Won Her Sympathy
"You just ought to have seen the
sympathy and the gladness in Mrs.
Carpenter's face. It does one good to
look at her anyway, she is so well and
strong and cheerful, but she knew so
well how I felt, could remember so

distinctly when she had been right
where [ was thru, that she felt very
sorry for me. At the same timo she
was glad, for she was so certain that I
could be cured.
"So she Kat ri??ht there and told me
the whole story of her sickness back
In Sallna, Kas., six years ago. How
five of the best doctors had given her
up to die, and none of her friends
thought she could live a week. She
was even worse off than I, for she was
bedridden lor months, while I was
still able to drag around. She told
me the whole story, how her sister
had read in a paper of a cure in a
neighboring town, wrought by Tele
coni, and how she hud sent her sister
to beg the practitioner to come and
see whether there was any hope for
her.
"And the marvelous part of the story
was that after one treatment she sat up
in bed and ale a hearty meal, some
thing she had not done for months.
When she told me that and assured
me that it was all true, just as I had
read it in the News, I determined to
try this new treatment myself.

"Well, there is no need to say much
more—look at me now. .1 have been
taking treatments only a few weeks,
but 1 have gained eighteen pounds, I
walk whenever and wherever I choose,
I eat anything and everything I want
and nothing- hurts me; 1 am gaining
strength every day — r am well."
Mr*. Schrelner actually shed tears
of joy as she t"ld of her restored |
health after bo many years of suffer
ing, despair and finally resignation to
the death which seemed inevitable.
"I do not like publicity, and I shrink
from having my name in the news
papers under any circumstances; but I
fee] that it would be the basest Ingrat
itude if I should fail to tell everyone
1 can what a cure has been wrought
on me by Teleconi. I cannot rind words
to express my gratitude, the joy I fcl
at beinjT restored to life and health and
happiness, after T had given up every
hope. It was simply a reprieve at
the last moment, when I was about
to die.
"I was really at death's door
for years. I tried osteopathy,
massage, doctors —at one time 1
actually had twenty bottles of
medicine in my room at once.
"I am telling every one of my
friends, just as fast as I can see them.
I am telling you, that the readers of
the News may know it. And if any
sick persons wish to ask mo personally
of the truth of the story, I live at 2350
Humboldt street, and my telephone
number is York 3348. I will be only too
glad to talk to anyone who la in the
condition from which I was rescued,
and tell them that there is health and
happiness only a few weeks away if
they will follow the way I took."
Her Looks Prove It
Mrs. Schreiner's personal appearance
bears out every claim she makes to
restored health. There is a healthy
glow on her cheek, her eyes are bright,
she moves with springy step and the
ease and grace of young womanhood,
and, above all, there is a lißht in her
face and a ring of earnestness in her
voice that tell the story of renewed
health and hope.

other column of this page, to continue
her quest tor health until she was final
ly restored, is Sirs. Krnma J... Carpen-1
ter of 3863 Tennyson street. It was an
account of Mrs. Carpenter's own mar
velous recovery, printed several weeks
ago In the Newi, which led Mrs. Schrel
ner to call on her and inquire whether
the story Is true, and whether there
really was hope for herself.
Mrs. Carpenter's recovery after sha
had been given up to die i 3 no less
astonishing—and no less true—than
that of Mrs. Schreiner. And that It
was genuine and permanent la shown
in the fact that she was cured six years
ago, and today Is strong 1, healthy and
happy, and ready and willing at all
times to tell anyone how she regained,
her health when the last hope had gono.
She Became Very 111
Six years ago Mrs. Carpenter wasr
living in Salina, Kas. For some years
she had been in failing 1 heaith. Tha
cause of It all was a torpid liver, which
in turn allowed her system to fill with
poison, her digestion to become im
paired, and nervousness and other Ilia
followed.
Medicine and doctors galore sha
tried, sometimes getting temporary
relief, sometimes merely adding to her
discomfort without any benefit. Grad
ually she grew worse, and finally took
to her bed. From a strong, handsome
woman she wasted away to a mera
frame, with sallow skin, sunken cheeks,
wan face and circled eyes. Her stom
ach pained her day and night, and re*
fused to retain her food.
Five Doctors Gave Up
Finally she was given up to die.
Five of the best physicians in tha
town had tried in vain to save her,
and her family was merely awaiting
the inevitable, when one day her sis
ter read the story of a woman in sim
ilar condition in a neighboring town,
who had been restored to perfect health
thmugh a new treatment called Tele
coni. She read the story to me siclc
woman, who began to beg that tha
practitioner be sent for and a-rked to
come to the house—for it was impossi
ble to move her.
Fortunately for her, the practitioner
was paying a visit to Salina the next
day, and agreed to come to the houaa
and examine Mrs. Carpenter. She
awaited with breathless suspense iiin
verdict. After he had heard the history
of her case, and satisfied himself that
she had no organic ailment beyond the
reach of his science, he sat and smiled
at her.
"Do you think you can save me?" she
asked anxiously. "Do you see any hope
for me at all?"
"Yes, indeed," he replied cheerfully.
"I can help you, and I can do more
than that; I can make you entirely;
