Amazement In Boston Over Operations of a Young Ohio Man *U TEAR,3 OF JOY FUELED EYli.S Could Hardly Believe Their Ears When They Learned That Ufec Of Lost Senae Had fe*- Been I' fV I w? r&\ fa* &*•>* Restored in a Ke- markable Manner. '^"iBoslon, Feb. 16.—Some remarkable demonstrations were given in public to day by L. T. Cooper, who is introduc ing for the first time in Boston the preparations which created a sensa tlon in other cities recently visited by him. -Cooper Is a remarkable character With peculiar and original ideas, and the announcement of his coming to the Hub City created widespread In terest. As a consequence, when it was learned that he would appear In pub lic, the place selected for his head quarters was crowded, some coming merely to get a glimpse of the man himself, others io test his skill in overcoming disease. As nearly as could be learned the facts In regard to the demonstration were these: At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the young man agreed to show what one of his remedies would do for deafness, and agreed to make any one present who was afflicted with deafness. hear again in less than three minutes. -There were many deaf people pres sent and about a dozen of these were given the demonstration, cbnsistlng of a single application of one of the Cooper preparations. Thd hearing of these people was then tested after an interval of be tween two and three minutes. The test consisted of questions put to them In'an ordinary conversational tone at distances varying from five to thirty feet. The results were remarkable in the extreme. Some of these people who were treated had been deaf for a num ber of years. When the first question was asked, a look of amazement would spread over their faces and they would forget to answer the question. As the questions were repeated the surprised look would give way to one of delight. Many were so affected that they burst Into tears! and were scarcely able to answer the question. In no single instance, so far as could be learned, would an individual fail to hear. Many were able to hear a finger snap at a distance of thirty feet. At the request of Mr. Cooper, questions were put to them by their friends, or by, various spectators, in an ordinary tone of voice, and the questions were _X£adlly answered. -Tin giving an'- account of these dem onstrations, Mr. Cooper said: "The preparation used is not the one with which I accomplish most, as my New Discovery, as it Is called, and 'to which I owe my success, Is for the treatment of all forms of stomach .trouble and the general breaking down of the system that foltews in the wake of diseases of this character. "The stomach is the seat of a great many troubles for instance, my rem edy will relieve thousands of people of rheumatism in this city, simply by getting the stomach in working order." Many people seen who were present at this demonstration assert positively that Cooper undoubtedly made these deaf people hear again. W m-t:J M.M.

V- lrVS»v--S*, -f ?s DAYMAN Leslie Watt, Ajrod I t, Meets Death in lova Kiver While Rowing Sunday Evening ICE FLOE WRECKS SMALL BOAT Lewis Arnold, Oldest the Party, Acts Heroically and Probably Saves One Life Farmers Render Valu able Assistance Lads Have Terri ble Experience. Four boys battled with seeming death in the icy waters of the Iowa river near the Nicholson ford bridge Sunday evening, and three were vic torious. One of the number, Leslie "Watt, aged 14, was tillable to combat with the freezing water and .-swift current, and went down to death. His companions were powerless in render ing him assistance, altho every effort was made to get an oar within his reach. The body was recovered two and one-half hours later, frozen to a cake of ice that had lodged in mid stream. Lewis Arnold, aged IS, son of Capt. and Mrs. L. G. Arnold, 401 North First avenue Kranli Cook, aged 14, son of Sir. and Mrs. C. M. Cook, 506 North First avenue Burton Jenkins, aged 15, son of Mrs. Ella Jenkins, 60S North Third avenue, and Leslie Watt, son of Mrs. Eleanor Watt, 105 East Lincoln street, formed the ill-fated party of adventuresome boys who, late Sunday afternoon, took a boat below the dam for a row. The craft belonged to Jen kins, and was old and probably unsea-^ worthy. At best a cruise in the river" with the ice breaking up and the wa ter at a high stage was risky, and when an immense ice floe, towed by the swift undercurrent, struck the boat and tore- a hole in the stern, it was only the work of a moment until the boys found themselves floundering in the ice-cold water. Arnold Behaves Creditably. Lewis Arnold, who was the oldest member of the party, behaved most creditably under the emergency, altho naturally he was badly frightened, as were the other three boys. The sud den shock of being precipitated into an icy bath was sufficient to benumb the lads so that swimming was next to an impossibility. The water was six teen feet deep at the point where the boat went down, and the current was as swift as any mill race, having been diverted to the south shore in order to direct it toward the center of the chan nel and avoid striking the abuttments of the county bridge at Nicholson's ford. Arnold Mounts Cake of Ice. Altho the ice was rotten and for the m^st part in small pieces, Arnold was fortunate enough to get hold of a cake of ice that would bear his weight. He also had one of the oars. With the latter he reached for Cook, who was battling bravely with the current. Cook reached the same floe, and shortly afterward, as it was carried down stream, selected a point of vantage for a swim to shore. He reached the bank more dead than alive, and with his be numbed fingers managed to get hold of the roots of a willow tree. Young 'Jenkins, who was out of the reach of Arnold's oar, but nearer shore, swam with the current toward the bank, and, almost dead from cold and exposure, was helped ashore by Cook, who waited for him in the cold water. Poor Watt Beyond Aid. Poor Watt was ibeyond the aid of his companions, however. When the crash came he appeared to have been thrown in an opposite direction from the other boy?, and was immediately carried out of the reach of Arnold's oar or the help of the other two boys. Arnold once passed the oar to Cook, who made a reich for Watt, but the lad was then too far gone to take an end if COOK had been near enough to reach him. The lad went down once, and in com ing to the surface mechanically grabbed for a small cake of floating ice. To this !he held, aided wkh '.he freezing water that cemented his oo.it sleeves, and in that position he was found, when the Ice had lodged in m'.il stream. The boy probably became un conscious from the cold even be '?re death came, but when found, altho^his arms were frozen to the ice, his n_-ad was under water. Farmers to Rescue. One of tlje first persons to come to the boys' assistance was J. M. Beard, who lives across the river near the bridge. Mr. Beard made an unsuccess ful effort to get Watt, by going out in to the river on a log. The current was so swift, however, that he was unable to reach the lad. Beard did some quick work with the survivors, however, and In this he showed presence of mind thAt is with out doubt responsible for the fact that neither of the boys who were rescued suffered any yi effects from the Icy plunge. Beard formerly conducted *a Turkish bath parlor in this city, and understands massage treatment. He and his good wife took the three boys into their house, built up a roaring fire in the stove, stripped the lads and began massage. The result was that the shock was soon overcome, circula tion restored, and dry clothing placed on each youth. This prompt treatment was so timely that neither of the boys has so much as a bad cold today. Body is Recovered. A farmer named Fields, who lives near the Nicholson ford bridge, recov ered the body at about 7:45 Sunday night. Mr. Fields successfully mounted a log and guided it to where the body had lodged, a quarter of a mile from where the boat was struck, and brought it ashore. The body was taken to the Watt home, and Coroner Nich ols notified. The coroner decided, af ter interviewing the boys, that an In quest was unnecessary. Leslie Watt, the boy who was drowned, was the youngest son of his widowed mother. John Watt, the boy's father, died about five or six year3 (X v' 11 ago. The family came to tIlls ili from the country near Green Moun tain. Kliner Watt, a brother, works in tin- local freight offices of tin- Chicago Great Western, in this city. Burt Watt, another brother, is an employe on George Darling's farm. All older brother, l'earl Walt, lives al Akely, Minn., and a. sister, .Mrs. Frank Ar nold, resides in this city. Until an answer is received in re sponse to a telegram sent l'earl Watt, the arrangements for the funeral will not be completed. OBITUARY. See.

WHINERY IS WORSE. Re- Another Operation Performed to lieve Blood Clots. Dr. J. L. Whinery, who has been in poor health for several months, owing to some cerebral trouble that necessi tated an operation at Rochester, Minn., has not been so well for the past few days. An attack of grippe, accompan ied by the usual fits of coughing, is believed to have ruptured some small blood vessel in the brain. At any rate a bulging of the former cavity became noticeable, showing pressure, and an aspirating needle was placed in the old wound Sunday for tlie purpose of drawing off the clotted blood. Consid erable blood was removed, and today the patient Is resting easier, indicating that the pressure is subsiding. Before the operation, on Saturday night, a consultation between Dr. Whinery*s physician and Dr. Mayo, at Rochester, was held over the long distance 'phone, and Dr. Mayo approved of the course as contemplated by the local surgeon.

"Montana," Western Melodrama, Pre sented by Good Company to Large House. "Montana," a melodrama of the cow country, was presented by an unusual ly capable company to a capacity house at the Odeon Sunday night. No better pla^ of Its kind, prices considered, has been presented at the Odeon in several seasons. Its four acts contained plenty of action, some gun play, and a plot of sustained interest from the start to the final curtain. The finale of the second act proved a climax that all but brought the house to its feet. One of the principal characters of this scene was the mare, Dolly Varden, which galloped alone on the stage, to be mounted and carried away by/' mas ter, who had broken jail. In acknowledging the applause the mare came upon the stage unattended and bowed and pawed her appreciation. Saturday Matinee and Evening. "Joshua Simpkins," a rural comedy drama on the order of "Josh Spruce by," and other similar plays, was pre sented at the Odeon at both matinee and evening performances Saturday. The matinee audience was very large, and the evening crowd was fair. The presenting company, which included a band and orchestra, was a fairly cap able one. At the Bijou. A good bill was presented before the Bijou patrons for the new week. "Young Sampson," who styles himself "the strongest man on earth," gave a fine exhibition of his strength, includ ing a feat of lifting fifteen men at one time, a combined weight of 2,570 pounds. Emmett and McNiel, a sister team, in singing and wooden shoe and other dancing, were also good. Harry Thompson, minstrel comedian, pleased. The usual programs of moving pic tures and illustrated songs were given. At the Elite. The Elite's bill included the usual number of clever motion pictures. Il lustrated songs also added interest to the program. The audiences were of good size thruout the evening. At the Theatorium. Moving pictures and illustrated songs made up the usual high class bills at the Theatorium, and large audiences were present during the evening. ^Tintes-HeptuliItoT, 7-Iui:sliaITl0X'mr tablet More Than 200 Attend First Session, and l'l'osprets Are Most Flattering WORK OF CLASSES BEGINS Opening Lectures Are Given and the Classes Are Organized for Work Seventy-six Women Register for the Household Economics Class—Corn Contest Brings More Corn Than There is Room For. Marshall comity's first short course opened under the direction of the ex tension department of Iowa Statii Col lege this morning. From the very first it frives promise of being a success in every department, and the outlook to lay was most promising for the week. I'p to noon 242 men and women had registered for the three classes. iJefore noon arrived the quarters used for the display of the corn entered for prizes aggregating more than $1,000. had become crowded with samples and inadequate for the purpose. There had registered up to noon for the corn and animal husbandry classes 166 men from all parts of the county, including tills city. The two classes, when they met In the first joint gathering, were noticeable for the very large number of young men, who made up the major part of the audience. Fully three out\ of every four were under 35 years of age. These are the sons ol' the men who were the pioneers of'Iowa who are here this week to learn new and better ways to increase the fertility of their land, raise larger and better crops than did their fathers, and breed more valuable horses, cattle, swine, and sheep. From this city and from the county seventy-six women registered this morhing for the household economics class. Perhaps three out of every four are from this city, and a ma jority are young women. Work Starts Promptly. Little delay was experienced in get ting the short course going at full swing. At 10:30 the corn and animal husbandry classes met together in the west court room, where Prof. P. G. Holden talked to them for a few min utes, outlining the work of the classes and giving general instructions. When he had closed, the first lecture of the course was delivered before the same audience by Prof. K. K. Bliss, head of the department of animal husbandry, of Iov/a State College. His general subject was feeds and feeding, and he took up In detail the relative values and cost of alfalfa, clover, timothy, corn and oats. Adjournment was taken until o'clock, when the corn class went into session in the east corn room for its first work, and the aninrtl husbandry class gathered in the Xib bey building for its initial instruction. Prof. P. C. Holden is at the head of both classes. The instructors for the cavil class are J. C. Abraham, president of the Mount Pleasant short course John Jenkins, of Columbus Junction: Paul Tafi. of Panora William McAr thur, of Mason City, and Prof. J. A. iving, of Ames. Professor Bliss is assisted by W. H. Peters, a student of animal husbandry of Iowa State College in directing the work of the animal husbandry class. Show Ring is Ready. The Kibbey building has been suit ably arranged for the animal hus bandry class. Alterations are to bo made at once, which will make it still more suitable for the purpose of judg ing live stock. Near the center is a sawdust ring, into which the fancy horses, steers, swine and sheep, which have been gathered here for the course, Will be led and judged. On one side raised rows of seats have been placed for the members of the class. When the class met this afternoon at 1 o'clock sheep was the subject taken up. Instruction was given in the mar ket type of sheep and in judging the market classes. Tomorrow will be de voted to the market type of horses and the judging" of draft horses. The first work of the corn class this afternoon was in studying the points of an ear of corn which indicate pro ductiveness. Tomorrow's work wiil be the method of selecting seeds for plant ing and the advantages of having well matured corn. The latter half of this subject will also include the study of an ear with a view of learning those points which indicate maturity. Women Learn of Foods. It was a good-sized group of women that Miss Edith Charlton, of Iowa State College, faced in the basement of the Congregational church this morning at the opening of the house hold economics class. She devoted an hour, from 10:30 to 11:30, to lecturing on foods and food values and their uses in the body. She touched on the relative values of various food, includ ing the heat and energy producing qualities of sugar and fats. Her lecture was illustrated with charts. At 1:30 o'clock, when the class met, Miss Charlton gave a demonstration with eggs and milk and a talk on sew ing, illustrating with a corset crver. Tomorrow's program Includes a talk on personal hygiene, a demonstration of cooking vegetables, cereals and breakfast foods and a talk on home decorations. The latter talk will be il lustrated. Bushels of Prize Corn. Early this morning it became appar ent that the store room at 122 East Main street where the corn is entered for the prizes, would be too small to prop erly show all'of the samples entered. As the corn kept coming, it became necessary to pile the ears three deep in places. By actual count, up to 10:30 o'clock this morning 2,130 ears of corn had been entered. One hundred sev enty-six samples of corn had been en tered up to the time the count was made and more was being brought in. Some fanners entered corn in as many as eight different classes, Including those of one, ten, thirty, fifty and 100 ears. The corn entered is of all kinds, yellow, white and red, and of all qual ities. Much" or it, even the inexperi enced eye can tell, is of first quality. Corn may be entered up to o'clock this evening, when the entries will close. The judging, which will be done by Professor Holden and his assist ants, will start at once, and it is ex pected it will be finished by Thurs day. The prize winners will probably be announced and the prizes awarded Friday. Classes Will Grow. Those in charge of the short course were confident this morning that the registration for the two large classes would reach "00 before night and by Wednesday it would have grown to fully 250. The latter figure is the mark set to insure financial success. The number of the registrations up to noon of the first day is considered remark ably large, and much larger than the record for the first day of other coun ty short courses which have proved successful. Hour of Entertainments Changed. By vote, ttiis morning, the hour for the commencement of all of the even ing entertainments was set for 7:.i0 o'clock. Some had been scheduled to begin at that hour, and some had been made a half hour later. The first, to be given this evening at the Odeon, will be an entertainment by the city school children. The earlier hour Is chosen so that the farmers can get a better start for their homes. Place to Find Rooms. Those who Recitation, "Teacher's Pet—Helen Willard.

"THE RIVALS." Richard Brinsley Sheridan's Classic Comedy. "One cannot witness a presentation of one of the old standard British dramas by a really standard company without drawing a comparison that isn't quite to the advantage of the modern play. Richard Brinsley Sher idan's comedies, for example, compare with the average so-called comedy of the latter day about as the poetry of Byron and Tennyson does with that of —well, it is hardly worth while to call names. "There are few habitues of the play house, who have not seen 'The Rivals' many times, for it is a comedy that many actors like to play, and one which the late Joseph Jefferson has produced hundreds of times within the memory of the present generation. For years the idea has been prevalent that no one could play the character of Bob Acres quite as well as he did, yet in his son William is recognized a chip off the old block, and a scion STOPPED SHORT. Taking Tonics, and Built Up on Right Food. The mistake is frequently made of trying to build up a worn-out nervous system on so-called tonics—drugs. New material from which to rebuild wasted nerve cells, is what should be supplied, and this can be obtained only from the proper food. "Two years ago I found myself on the verge of a complete nervous col lapse, due to overwork and study, anc to illness in the family," writes a Wis young riiother. "My friends became alarmed because I grew pale and thin and could not sleep nights. I took various tonics prescribed by physicians, but their ef fects wore off shortly after I stopped taking them. My food did not seem to nourish me and I gained no flesh nor blood. "Reading of Grape-Nuts, I determ ined to stop the tonics tnd see what a change of diet would do. I ate Grape-Nuts four times a day with cream and drank milk also, went to bed early after eating a dish of Grape Nuts before retiring. "In about two weeks I was sleeping soundly. In a short time gained 2) lbs. in weight and felt like a different woman. My little daughter whom I was obliged to keep out of school last spring on account of chronic catarrh, has changed from a thin, pale, nerv ous child to a rosy, healthy girl an3 has gone back to school this fall.

The first evening entertainment of short course week will take place to night at the Odeon, beginning at 7:30 o'clock, when the pupils oT the public schools of Marshalltown, high school included, will present a program that promises to be of unusual merit.

It is .nardl.v possible to find any fault with his interpreta tion of the role and tho comparisons are odious, the younger Jefferson gives sueh a splendid performance that there is little danger of his being damned with faint praise. He lives and thrives and does not suffer even when his harshest critics compare his work with that of his illustrious father. 'The Sir Lucius O'Trlgger of Mr. Joseph Jefferson was also a finished bi'. of acting that was decidedly pleas 1n? and the same artistic thorough ness that characterized the work of W. J. Florence in the very same part was manifested in every intonation, every gesture, every pause. There Is an unctions humor to his performance that, is seldom seen and altogether it is one of the best if not the very best comedy presentations that has been so ti on $he local stage."
