Movement to Keep Up
the Government Gold
What Men of Means Will Give
in Exchange for Legal
Tender Notes.
Directors Met and Authorized the
Cashier to Communicate With
Other Big Banks.
CLEVELAND, Ohio. Sept. 19.— A move
ment in the interest of gold was started in
the Central National Bank to : day, which
may result in the bankers of this city offer
ing $1,000,000 in gold to the Government to
be replaced by legal tender notes. This is
to keep the gold reserve up to the $100,
--000.000 mark, wiiere the banking powers of
the country insist it must be.
The directors of the Central National
Bank met to-day and authorized the
cashier, J. J. Sullivan, who, by the by, was
a National Bank Examiner when Cleve
land was President before, to communicate
with other bankers in the city and see if
they would agree to the plan. If they
would the Central Bank directors put them
selves on record as saying they would con
tribute their proportionate share of the
f 1,000,000 in poid.
Colonel Sullivan, when seen to-day, de
clared that the movement would be patri
otic and business-like and would prove to
the people as well that the banks did not
insist upon gold for themselves especially,
but were willing to take good Government
security. He thought that if the bankers
of the country would be willing to band
over to the Government something like
$40,000,000 of their gold it would insure the
continuation of the prosperity the country
now enjoys.
The other banks have not yet been ap
proached, but when the transaction be
came kno>vn to them they expressed
varying opinions on the subject, some of
them favorable and some not to the Sulli
van plan.
Sullivan insists that there is no precon
certed action among the bankers of the
country, and denies that the Government
has called upon him or any baukers, so
far as he knows, to assist in remedying the
present rather unsatisfactory state of af
fairs to the Government in Washington.
The probability is that the thing is pro
posed in the interest of gold and to sup
port the Cleveland administration attitude
in relation thereto. Bankers in several
other cities, Sullivan said, have been talk
ing over the same subject, but without col

Imposed upon me, but in view of the great
difficulty of even selecting the theme for the
brief address which I am to deliver here,
where so many memories crowd upon me, all
demanding utterance, I will need your indul
gence. Where shall I begin?
Standing in this presence, upon this historic
ground, I am conscious that no words of my
own will stir and thrill the survivors of the
great military events which thirty-two years
ago transpired in these valleys, and under
the shadow of these mountains, as will the
mention of Chickamauga. Chattanooga, Look
out Mountain and Missionary Ridge. These
names are now historically significant of great
oattles, where many thousands oi brave men
of the same race and language contended with
each other for victory. At the mention of
them the eyes of veterans, dimmed by age, will
kindle, and for the moment they will forget the
flight of time and tne lapse of years, and in
imagination again plunge into the heady
After reviewing the thrilling incidents
of the Civil War, General Palmer con
My comrades and countrymen, I have thus
told the story of the battle of Chickamauga.
It is brief, and necessarily incomplete.
Writers, some with historical accuracy and
others in the language of romance, have told
the tale of that bloody contest. No man can
know much of the events which did not occur
in his immediate presence on a field like this.
We know the names of but few of the fallen,
but we can remember the courage a;id gal
lantry of all who acted with us.'
I have said that the Civil War was caused by
the sectional challenge to American manhood,
and that challenge was accepted and followed
by years of bloody and desolating war. In that
•war the American people learned to properly
estimate each other, which is the only founda
tion for harmonious National unity.
By that war the theory of the right of the
States to seceae from the Union was forever
eradicated from onr system of National consti
tutional government. By that war African
slavery, which was the root of sectional bitter
ness and was one of the causes or pretexts for
National controversy, vas forever overthrown
and the flag ot our country became at once the
emblem of freedom and the symbol of National
power. As the result of that war the constitu
tion was maintained, and not subverted, and
the union of the American people made per
My comrades, we who survive to this day may
well be grateful to that Divine Being who
guides the destiny of nations that we are per
mitted to gee an established Union— a republic
extending from the Atlantic to the Pacff.c ana
from the lakes to the gulf— and liberty and law
the all-pervp.dins rule of our National life. We
are here to-day "with malice toward none and
charity for all"; we meet as citizens of a com
mon country, devoted to its interests and alike
ready to maintain its honor wherever or how
ever assailed.
To my comrades, you who were Confederate
soldiers during all the weary struggle of the
rivil War, I beg to say I was proud of your gal
lantry and courage. I never allowed myself to
forget that you were Americahs, freely offering
your lives in the defense of what you believed
to be your rights and in vindication of your
i'ou are now satisfied that the result of the
Civil War established the unity of the power
ful American Republic; you submitted your
controversies with your fellow-citizens to the
arbitrament of the battle-field, and you ac
cepted the result with a sublime fortitude
worthy of all praise, and your reward Is, that
peace and order are restored, and "the South, 1 *
which you loved so well, and for which you
fought so bravely, now blossoms with abund
aut blessings.
General Gordon of Georgia opened his
address by quoting the illustrious Charles
Sumner's proposal in the United States
Senate to strike from the buttle-flags of
the Union all mementoes of our civil war.
He eulogized the broad and catholic spirit
of patriotism which inspired that proposi
tion, though, he said, Mr. Sumner rea
soned as a classical student rather than a
practical statesman. But Mr. Sumner, he
said, was not the only statesman who then
believed that the preservation of war
memories was the perpetuation of war
passions. He was not the only one who
failed to appreciate the mighty changes
which were to be wrought in time; or the
hallowing; effects of great trials and sor
rows upon the tempers of a people; or the
elevating, ennobling and unifying power
of our Christian civilization and free insti
tutions. General Gordon closed an im
passioned and eloquent peroration as fol
"Every uniform worn by the brave,
whether its color was blue or gray ; every
sheet of flame from the ranks and rifles of
both sides; every cannon that shook
Chickamauga's hills or thundered around
the heights of Gettysburg ; every whizzing
shell that tore through the Wilderness, at
Chancellorsville or Shiloh; every bullet
rent flag that floated in victory or went
down in defeat on any field; every pa-
triotic song or prayer wafted heavenward
from the North or the South; every loving
and tender ministering at the dying
soldier's fide; every agonizing throb in
woman's heart or burning tear on devoted
woman's cheek — all were contributions to
the upbuilding of a loftier American man
hood for the future defense of American
General Gordon's thrilling close was the
signal for an outburst of applause lasting
several minutes, during which there were
culls from the spectators for McKinley
and Morton, speeches from the visiting
Governors being next in order. These
were mingled with cries for Longstreet
and that old veteran, still erect and vig
orous despite his 78 years, was introduced
by Vice-Fresident Stevenson. Before he
began, however, General Gordon again
claimed the attention of the crowd. Hold
ing aloft his hand he said:
"I have here a button drenched with
blood, taken from the coat of the poet
soldier, George Lyttle, author of the well
tnown lilies beginning: 'I am dying,
Egypt, dying,' who fell on this immortal
field. It was cut from his coat by G. C.
Lindsay, color-bearer of the Tenth Missis
sippi Regiment, who authorizes me to pre
sent it to any friend of that hero who will
accept and cherish it and hand it down to
Turning to Attorney-General Harmon, a
resident of Cincinnati, which was also
George Lyttle 's home, General Gordon
presented it to him. Subsequently Cap
tain Silas Mofort of Cincinnati informed
General Harmon that General Lyttle's
nephew, the son of his sister, was present
on tbe ground and Mr. Harmon sent the
precious relic to him. Another relative of
George Lyttle, who was a soldier also, was
found to be present.
This incident having closed, General
Longstreet made a short address, which
unfortunately was delivered in so low a
tone as to be inaudible after the first few
sentences more than a dozen feet away.
Cries were renewed for favorite Gover
nors, but Vice-President Stevenson pre
sented Lieutenant-General Schotield, who
said: "Our forefathers who framed the
constitution left on record the fact that by
so doing they sought to establish a more
perfect union of the States. They laid a
broad foundation, but the union remained
imperfect. It was left for you to debate
for four years the questions unsettled by
the fathers, and after a terribly earnest
argument to settle them. For the first
time in the history of this continent there
now exists a united, happy and harmoni
ous people. That perfect union has now
been established by the services which you
laid at the feet of our common country."
At this point, the heat being intense,
Governor Morton felt compelled to retire,
and his departure, accompanied by his
imposing and numerous staff, was taken
by many of the audience to mean the com
pletion of the programme. The conse
quence was that the exercises were
abruptly and somewhat unexpectedly
brought to a close. The occasion, despite
the intense heat and the immense crowd
in attendance, parsed off without a single
unpleasant feature or incident, the acci
dent to Governor Upham of Wisconsin
having occurred at a place remote from
the scenes of the dedications and some
time before it began.
General Granville M. Dodge, president of
the Society of the Army of the Tennessee,
presided over the reunion of the survivors
of the army of that name who served in
either the Union or Confederate ranks,
which closed the proceedings of the first
day of the dedications of the Chickamauga
and Chattanooga National Park.
It was held in the large tent in the city,
which would be an ideal place for exercises
of this kind but for the fact that it is
located alongside a railroad yard and the
puffing and shrieking of switch engines is
too often the only sound that can be heard
twenty feet from the platform.
The first speaker was General O. 0. How
ard, the one-armed Christian soldier. He
was followed by Congressman Joseph
Wheeler of Alabama. General Wiliard
Warner of Chattanooga was the next
speaker. Ho departed from the lines
usually followed on such occasions and
discuseed the question of socialism, "Not
the socialism of Bellamy, or Keir Hardie
or Carl Marx, but the socialism of States
and municipalities."
The official and otherwise distinguished
visitors, who have made Chattanooga the
cynosure of the whole country for the past
few days, will soon disappear from the
city. The Wisconsin delegation etarted
to-night for Atlanta.
Attorney-General Harmon and Secre
taries Herbert, Wilson and Smith expect
to leave in tho morning for Washington.
Governor Greenhalge of Massachusetts is
expected to depart to-morrow night.
There was a reunion to-night of the Con
federate Veterans in the National Guard
armory, at which several of ths more
prominent ones made speeches. Governor
Morton, after the exercises at the park,
rode over Lookout Mountain and spent a
short time enjoying the breezes there.
This evening he called upon Governor and
Mrs. McKinley at the residence of Hon.
H. Clay Evans. To-morrow after the
parade, Governor Morton and party will
leave for Atlanta.
Caught in a Carriage Accident While Out
CHATTANOOGA, xexn., Sept. 19. -The
only accident of the week so far to mar the
pleasure of the people of Chattanooga and
their guests occurred to-day, Governor W.
H. Upham of Wisconsin being the victim.
"With Mrs. and Miss Upham and Miss
Fairchild, daughter of ex-Governor Fair
child, he started to drive to Lookout
They were accompanied by General and
Mrs. Fairchild and Mr. and Mrs. Cheek,
who occupied a second carriage. At a
point in the road where a bluff was upon
one side and a palisade upon the other, the
team to Governor Uphani's carriage
balked, and backing struck the frame and
the occupants were compelled to jump to
save their lives, as they thought.
The ladies alighted safely, but Governor
Upham fractured the small bone of the
riuht leg between the knee and ankle. He
was conveyed to the inn after some delay
and the injured member dressed by Dr.
Plumiuer, who was a surgeon with Gen
eral Sherman in the war. The injury is
not at all serious and the Governor will
be able to travel in a few days. He will
be on crutches for several weeks.
Made on Bicycles at the
Opening Day at
Remarkable Feat of Foster in
Lowering the Half Mile
Two World and Two Coast Records
Changed by California
NAPA, Cal., Sept. 19;— The first day of
the cyciing meeting proved a red-letter day
for short -distance record smashing. There
was a little too much wind on the back
stretch for any very swift time to be made
in the mile races, but the homestretch was
sheltered and the track as smooth as a
floor, so the half and quarter records were
considerably lowered.
Foster went against the world's half-mile
record, paced by a quad, and made the
distance in 50 4-5 seconds, thus knocking
three-fifths of a second off the record. Fos
ter rode like a demon, and seeing that the
quad could not pace him fast enough, ho
left them on the last eighth and beat them
fifteen yards. It is believed that Foster
could have rode in 50 flat if the quad had
set a faster pace.
Agnur and Otey made an unpaced mile
on a tandem in 2:10 3-5, breaking the coast
record by one-fifth of a second.
Chapman and Purker of Napa beat the
world's unpaced tandem record for the
quarter mile in 24 Hat, thus putting the
class A record below the class B by one
fifth of a second.
Metcalf took a big piece off the coast
half-mile record, Hying start and paced by
tandem, making the distance in 1 :01 3-5.
One mile handicap, clas§ A, first heat— Wing,
60; Freeman, 35. Time, 2:22. Second heat-
Craft, 85; Byrne, scratch. Time, 2:30 3-5.
Third heat- Metcalf, 60; McFarland, scratch.
Time, 2 :30 3-5. Final heat— Craft and Metcalf-.
Time, 2 :47.
One mile scratch, class B, post race— Hall led
to first quarter; Cnshing led the balance of the
race. Time, 2:34 3-5.
One mile scratch, class A— Ackerman, Down
ing and Byrne. Time, 2:16 4-5.
One mile handicap, class B— Edwards,
scratch ; Long, 35, Nissen, 60. Time, 2 :33 4-5.
In the third heat of the class A handi
cap, Ecklon was thrown near the seven
eights pole and quite badly hurt. His left
cheek was torn from the eye downward,
and the lower eyelid badly torn also. He
was stunned for a minute, but soon re
vived and walked to the training quarters,
where Drs. Pulsifer and Smith dressed the
wound. Five stitches were taken in the
wound. The accident caused great excite
To-morrow's programme will contain a
one-mile handicap, class A; o.ne - mile
Handicap, cla^s B; ten-furlong scratch,
class A; and ten-furlong Bcratch, class B.
In the morning Foster will go against
the world's mile record of I:4ft. The at
tendance to - d«y was fair. To-morrow
afternoon all stores will close, that the
clerks may see the races.
The officers of the track are as follows:
E. S. Bailey, referee; judges — William
Hailey, F. E. Scott and Judge Frank
Dunn; timers— C. N. Ravlin, Charles Har
grave and Sam Picket; clerk of course, B.
C. Clark; starter, William Hailey; an
nouncer, Wilbur F. Knapp.
It Was an Extremely Bad Day for the
STOCKTON, Cal., Sept. 19.— T0-day was
a good day at the track. The talent made
a mistake in picking Warrago in the three
quarter-mile dash, but Gracie S, the favor
ite in the five-furlong dash, was an easy
winner. The talent was sadly bewildered
in the special trot, which it took six heats
to decide. Mojave was a favorite at first,
but when Edwin A had taken the first
heat she made friends. After the third
heat the starters for the fourth had a heat
each to their favor and the talent was at
sea. By considerable hedging they man
aged to draw down a little money, but it
was not their day. There was no betting
on the district trotting race with Lady
Vestal, Mariposa and Jasper Ay re as
starters. Jasper sold favorite, $20 to $7,
the night before, but no one would put
any money against him at the track.
Two instances of trotters regaining their
feet in incredibly short distances were
shown by Mojave in the fifth heat of the
special trot and by Jasper Ay res in the
second heat of the district trotting event.
Their phenomenal settling down scored to
both the respective heats.
The attendance was larger to-day than
on any previous day, there being a notably
large numberof vehicles about. The racing
closed with the daylight.
In the ladies' equestrienne exhibition
contest, with five entries, prizes for all,
Miss Frankie Co well took first priae. Miss
Mary C. Glen second, Miss Alma Fusou
third, Miss Alice Ruth fourth, and Miss
Mabel Colby fifth.

It Has Offered $60,W)0 for the Corbett-
Fitzsitntnon fight.
SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., Sept. 19.—
J. S. Purdy, chairman of the fiesta com
mittee, telegraphed Richard K. Fox of
New York to-day offering the use of the
amphitheater, right in the heart of the
city, enlarged to any required size, for the
Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight, with a purse of
$60,000, the money being now in bank, if
the tight takes place here instead of Dallas,
Texas. It is thought probable that the
offer will be accepted, as it is evident it
cannot come off in Texas from the attitude
of the Governor.
The railroads promise the cheapest ex
cursion rates should the fight come off
here. The dispatch to Fox stated that
four finish fights took place in the am
phitheater last night, and that there would
be no trouble with or interference by the
officers ofthe law.

Mr*. Ijnngtry Want* Her Jewel*.
LONDON, Esq., Sept. 19.— The West
minster Gazette says that Mrs. Langtry
hns returned from Baden Baden to Lon
don, and made application to the Union
Bank for the restoration of jewels valued
at £40,000, which she deposited in the bank
before leaving London. She found that
the bank on August 24, under an order in
handwriting resembling that of Mrs. Lang
try, and btarlng a counterpart of her sig
nature, requiring the bank to give the
jewels to "bearer ' had delivered them as
directed. Mrs. Langtry declares that the
order was a forgery, and has placed the
matter in the hands of the police, who
thus far have been unable to trace the
forger or the jewels.
Thanked by the lope.

track Gamblers.
TRENTON, N. J., Sept. 19.— The Repub
lican State Convention was called to order
at 12:10 p. m. to-day by Franklin Murphy.
Rev. Dr. Hanlon of Fennington Seminary
offered prayer. Mr. Murphy then intro
duced Congressman Mahlon Pilney as
temporary chairman, who then addressed
the convention. After some preliminary
routine business, during which the names
of various candidates were vigorously
cheered, the convention took a recess.
Upon reassembling the committee on
permanent organization recommended J.
Frank Fort of Essex for chairman, and
that gentleman, having been escorted to
the chair, addressed the delegates, depre
cating the introduction of National issues
into the State campaign. He said that the
people of New Jersey had been like the
Israelites of old, going through the wilder
ness of corruption, but they were within
sight of the Canaan of good government.
The platform, which was then presented
by the committee on resolutions and
adopted by the convention, opposes any
attempt to impose upon this country a de
based or depreciated currency, and reiter
ates a firm belief in the wisdom and benefi
cence of a tax upon imports which will af
ford protection to American industries and
render an adequate revenue. The platform
"It is the highest and most imperative
duty of intelligent and patriotic voters of
New Jersey at this time to unite in a
supreme effort to wipe out the last vestige
of the stain left upon the fair name of the
State by the ballot-box stuffers, the race
track gamblers and the political tricksters
from whose clutches she has been so hap
pily released, and we earnestly appeal to
all voters, without regard to political
affiliations, to join us in the high and
patriotic purpose of establishing upon a
sure foundation a clean and honest State
Nominations for Governor being in
order, J. E. Abbott of Atlantic presented
the name of Congressman John J.Gardner
of Atlantic. William S. Johnson of Ber
gen nominated John W. Griggs of Passaic.
Other regular nominees were: Maurice A.
Rogers of Camden, State Senator Voorhees
of Union, Elias Ward of Essex and John
Kean of Union.
Three ballots were taken, resulting as
follows: First— Kean 207, Griggs 294.
Voorhees74, Rogers 79, Ward 168, Toffey 1,
I Gardner 23; necessary to choice, 424. Sec
j ond— Kean 248, Griggs 338, Voorhees G5,
\ Ward 166, Rogers 29, Toffey 1.
There was great disorder between the
second and third ballots, the Ward and
Griggs adherents trying to drown each
other's shouts and the ballot was taken
amid much confusion.
Chairman Fort worked hard to sustain
order. In the midst of more or less con
fusion the third ballot was taken.
Hudson went bodily over to Griggs and
the latter's nomination was achieved.
Cumberland, Salem and other counties
followed Hudson's suit and then the nomi
nation was made unanimous.
The Great Designers May Do Some Work
for Uncle Sam.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 19.— The
Herreshoffs, the great yacht-builders, may
be given a chance to show what they can
do in the way of naval architecture. When
bids were opened at the Navy Department
for the construction of three sea-going
torpedo-boata authorized by Congress the
Herreshoffs were found to be the lowest
bidders. Their bids, however, were for the
construction of the vessels upon their own
plans. These plans were referred by Secre
tary Herbert to Chief Constructor Hich
born and Chief Engineer Melville for con
sideration and report.
After a careful examination these officers
found that the boats can be built as pro
posed by the Herreshoffs, and their report
to Secretary Herbert will recommend that
the contract be given to that firm. Some
alterations were made in the plans, which
the Herreshoffs will have to accept if they
wish to undertake the contract*
It was the intention of Congress to have
one of these vessels built on the Pacific
Coast, one on the gulf and one on the
Mississippi. No bids were received from
the Mississippi or the gulf, and only one,
that of the Herreshoffs, from the Atlantic.
Under the act the Secretary can contract
with the Herreshoffs, as he was authorized
to build the vessels at any place in this
country if the bids from the places specified
were unreasonable or if none were received.
The bids from the Pacific Coaet were much
higher than those of the Eastern firm.
Cholera in Hawaii.
cial advices from the United States Minis
ter to the Hawaiian Islands, under date of
September 4, state that up to that time
thirty-two cases ot cholera had been re
ported in Honolulu, of which twenty-six
were fatal. Only one white person had
died, a sailor on the United States steamer
Bennington. No cases had been reported
outside the city, and communication with
the other islands had been prohibited. No
evidence of panic existed, and the people
were cordially co-operating with the au
thorities in their efforts to stamp out the

M. McVaugh, a sub-contractor on the new
addition of the Government Printine
Office, was arrested last night on, a warrant
charging him with making his employes
work more than eight hours per day, which
is in violation of a statute requiring eight

Knights of Ak Sar Ben Cele
brate the Prosperity of
No More Will the Faithful Use the
Valuable Grain for Build
ing Fires.
OMAHA, Nebk., Sept. 19.— The crown
ing act and triumph of the Nebraska State
Fair adjunct observances was the celebra
tion of the Feast of Mondamin by the Or
der of the Knights of Ak Sar Ben. This
was the fourth and last event of carnival
week, and was undoubtedly the most bril
liant and significant event of the sort ever
seen in the West. The Feast of Monda
min is the term used to express the great
corn crop which Mondamin, the king of
corn, has bestowed upon his subjects. The
Knights of Ak Sar Ben is an organization
of the leading business and society men of
Omaha. Samson, Lord Hi_-h Chamber
lain to his Majesty Ak Sar Ben, had issued
commands to his faithful servants to
gather in the city of Omaha on this date to
pay their devotions to this god Mondamin.
The Den, which was once called the Coli-,
scum, and in which the Populists held a
National convention in 1892, was trans
formed into a palace of beauty in prepara
tion for the great ball, at which tne King
and Queen Ak Sar Ben are to be crowned.
Ak Sar Ben is, of course, an inverted spell
ing of Nebraska, but not over a thousand
people present knew it.
The tradition as exemplified by the
poem which will be published by the
World-Herald to-morrow morning is that
the sons of the province of Nebraska be
came indifferent to the good deeds of
Mondamin and the beneficence of corn.
They failed to thank him for his good acta
and even went so far as to burn the corn
while there were many in want for this
corn. Hence he laid last year a blight
upon the land of Nebraska and it was
burned by drought and its meadows were
parched, men and beasts starved and want
was abroad in this province. . Winter and
cold made the misery greater. But tbe
cries of the destitute touched the heart of
Mondamin and he gave ram in abundance,
so that the State was tilled with plenty,
and he commanded that all his subjects
should come to Omaha to worship. Hence
the parade and celebration.
This parude was formed of twenty of the
great floats of the last Mardi Gras celebra
tion at New Orleans, adapted to these con
ditions, and were rich in beauty and
coloring. The largest crowd which ever
assembled on the streets of Omaha was
here to-night and witnessed these floats
attended by gorgeously attired knights,
and the delight and entnusiasm of the
spectators were great. Ail stores were
closed to-day, and the theaters and night
races and amusements did not open until
after the parade, which was not completed
until 10:30 o'clock. The city was in gala
attire and shone with brilliance. After
the parade the knights returned to the
ben, where the great ball was held.
The grand march was led by the King
and Queen, yet in mask, and 500 other
couples. After the grand march came the
crowning of the King and Queen and their
unmasking and the revelation of their
identity, which has been kept a secret
until to-night. A very great crowd was at
the Den and the ball will last until morn
ing. Forty-live of the most beautiful and
prominent ladies of the city are in attend
ance upon the Queen, and their costumes
are very fine. The ball itself is said to be
the most successful and elegant social
function ever held west of the Missouri.
Mentioned the Wrong Bank.
CHICAGO, 111., Sept. 19.— The story
sent out from this city last night to the ef
fect that two employes of the Chicago Na
tional Bank had been detected in the em
bezzlement of several thousand dollars
was erroneous. The defalcation took place
in the National Bank of Illinois of this
city. The person who gave the informa
tion told the reporter that the embezzle
ment had occurred in a Chicago National
bank and the reporter understood him to
say that it had occurred in the Chicago
National Bank.

seems to be at a premium, aud the man who
has a reputation that is not besmirched is
looked on as "one of the chosen few amongst
the many." And the possession of such a char-
acter is sometimes worth more than a snug
bank account. To have the esteem of all of one's
fellow citizens is something by no means to be
despised, and when to that is added the trust
which is implied by the expression, "What he
says you may implicitly rely on," the standing
01 the individual of whom this is said is second
to none in the community for integrity. Few
men enjoy such a reputation, but a noteworthy
instance of those who do is N. J. Brown, the
well-known rancher of Tulare County. He has
lived in the county for about ten years and has
spent his tima "tickling the ground with a
hoe" In order that it might "laugh with the
harvest of plenty" for him, and he has done
fairly well. Not quite as well as he would have
done had he continuously been in good health,
for every farmer knows that unless he person-
ally directs the work on his ranch tho crops
are not likely to be as good as if he had
superintended matters himself. But to the
story. Mr. Brown worked away steadily for
years at his fruit land and bent his whole
energies to securing a competence for himself.
He grew to be respected by all who knew him
for his untiring energy, his straightforward
Character and his pleasant disposition as a
friend and neighbor. The trees grew under
his patient care, and future pr osoeets seemed
brighter and brighter a3 the days of toil ran
into months and the months were woven into
years. But a change came. Mr. Brown, as
Shakespeare says, "thought all men mortal
but himself," and the idea that he was going
to be ill seems never to have crossed his mind.
But, like a thief In the night, slowly and
silently a nervous disorder was spreading it-
self throughout his entire system, and one day
he found that he was, however unwilling he
was to admit it, utterly unfit for doing another
day's work. The outlook was not pleasant. As
time went on he grew worse, and his lips be-
came bloodless, his eyes became dim and his
nervous system more and more shattered. He
was on the very verge of complete prostration
before help came, and, although it came none
too soon, when it did come it worked what ap-
peared to be almost a miracle in restoring to
him health and vigor. He had heard of the
grand old Hudson Medical Institute, which is
doing such splendid work for all those who
are ill, and applied to the physicians there for
relief, and after having been treated by them
for three months he feels impelled to make the
following frankly honest statement:
I. N*. J. 'Brown, .being. In good sound mind, do
offer the. following as a testimonial of the ski!! of
the various physicians of the Hudson Medical In-
stitute who attended to my difficulties during the
past three months. It affords me pleasure to give
my testimonial as to your skillful treatment.
When I applied to you about three months ago I
was indeed a wreck.. I. hail almost giTen up nil
idea of being able to attend to my work, and la
fact had lost the vim and visor for which I was
noted. Whilst it may seem very strange to some
people, it is nevertheless the truth that to-day I
am a well man, and I am pleased indeed with my
well-being. That which L Imve I owe to the pnysl-
clansofthe Hudson Medical' lnstitute. Troubled
as I was with nervous prostration and general de-
bility, which bad been coming on lor several years,
and to winch I gave but little attention until I
placed myself In your hands, I expec.eJ almost
nothing., I was extremely nervous and despond-
ent. Now lam strong and vigorous and can Joy-
fully go back to the rancu, feeling that I am In per-
fect health. ■'■.'.>■%",
This is the truth, for no one doubts this man's
word. He is ■ known .as "honest six-footed
Brown" by his friends! ' '
This is no exceptional case among the many
thousands who have been treated at the Insti-
tute— indeed.
The Hon. W. \V. Bachelder of Denver, Colo.,
writes: "I find bat few words to express my appre-
ciation for the benefit that has been bestowed on
me by the Hudson Medical Institute."
W. K. Tim ins of Petaluma says: "I was treated
• * * without any benefit until I went to the
HrDgov Medical Institute, and now I havo
been transformed into an entirely different man."
C. C. Fairchild of Stockton states: "For twelve
years I vita afflicted with .nervous prostration;
how. thanks to the Hirc>Bot? jUkdical Institute,
I feel that life Is again worth living."
All curable diseases are cured quickly, scien-
tifically, safely and quietly at the Institute, and
until you have been told by the physicians at
the Institute that your case is incurable there
is hope for you. The Hudson Medical Institute
now occupies the large white building at the
junction of Stockton, Ellis and Market streets,
fan Francisco, California.
