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.

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.

homo from there on Nov. IT, 1900. He
was a veteran of Company K. Eigh-
i„Wa infantry. His enlistment
dated from Aug. 11. lsfi'2, at Iowa Cen
ter, Story county. IIis war record
shows that he was reported missing
and was captured April IS, 1864. at
Moscow, Ark. He was paroled Dec.
1864, and returned anil joined his
company Feb. 8, 1865. He was dis
charged July 20, 1865, at Little Hock,
Ark.
The record of his relatives, taken at
the time he entered eight years ago,
shows thnt he at that time had a wife,
Mrs. Jennie See, and four children,
aged 1, 3. 4 and 6 years. At the home
headquarters tills is believed to be an

DR. 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.

AMUSEMENTS.
"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.

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.

"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.
"Grape-Nuts and fresh air were the
3nly agents used to accomplish the
happy results." "There's a Reason."

worthy to follow in the footsteps of hi
illustrious siro. 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

is one of the best if not the very best
comedy presentations that has been
