MANLEY CURED WITHOUT THE AID OF DOCTORS BUT IN CHRIST'S NAME History of the Case as Told by the Father of the Boy in His Own Words. On Wednesday, the Jrd day ot j?eD- ruary, my wife received a letter from my son Ernest's wife, and one also from her mother, Mrs. J. "NY. Russell, of Independence, Kansas, stating that Ernest had fallen and received such injury in his back that inflammation had set in and gradually extended to his brain. That he had been wild crazy for nearly a week, and knew no one. That four men could not con trol him. So the doctor was keeping him under the influence of morphine, and said he could never be any better. He advised that he be sent to the asy lum. They urged that some of us should go to Kansas immediately and assist in caring for him. Mrs. Man ley made arrangements and went on the midnight train that night. I wrote the following letter to my son, and mailed it about noon the same day. This letter has been re turned to me, by my request, for preservation. Richmon d, Ind., Feb. 3, 1004. My Dear Ernest and Alta: We received Mrs. Russell's and Al ta 's letters this morning, and were much distressed over your condition. I knew God could heal you, and that He was in Independence, Kansas, so I took the matter to Him in prayer. Then I commanded in the name of Jesus Christ that the demons, who had attacked you, should now depart from you; and the assurance immedi ately came to me, that God had en forced this command. I then thanked God for the deliverance, and prayed for your complete healing, in the name of Jesus Christ. After that I commanded in the name of Jesus Christ, that every joint in your back bone now go into its proper place; and that any injury that the spinal cord had received, should be immediately healed. That all inflammation of the spinal cord, and of the bruin, and muscles, should depart. That all soreness, and pain, in your entire body, should be re moved. That all disease in your en tire body should now leave you. That vour nerves should be soothed, and calmed, and that you should sleep II111C V U1U1I I'llUITIV JVMtU. I have the sweet assurance that all , this is now done lor you !v the Uod i of Heaven, through faith in the name of Jesus Christ. And that you are now resting in sleep, at ten o'clock, Kansas time, Wednesday morning, February .. Affectionately, and in the name of Jesus Christ, W. F. Manley. I wrote to three of my children who are from home, giving them all these facts. I also related all these circumstances to more than a dozen persons in Richmond during the fol lowing four days. On Monday following I received a letter from my wife, saying that she did not reach Independence, Kansas until Friday evening, and that Er nest knew her and the doctor was amazed at the change. That Ernest had been kept under morphine contin ually since Wednesday. On Monday, the 15th, she wrote a fuller account of his recovery, say ing, On Saturday after I reached hese Ernest improved very rapidly. On Sunday he wanted to get up, but all advised him not to do so. On Monday he got up, and went all over the flat building where he is liv ing. On Tuesday he went down town and paid his gas hill, and in the af ternoon he and Alta went out shop ping. On Wednesday he took the train to week with his fafher-in-law. All the people in this building and neighborhood who called on him while siek, are surprised beyond measure, at his sudden recovery. But none are more surprised, than the doctor who treated him." Signed, Lydia G. Manley. I have all these letters to show any person who desires to see them. Edward Evans, a colored man, liv ing at 922 north eleventh street, Rich mond, Ind., was also suddenly healed of neuralgia on January 12, after an attack that had lasted almost contin ually for ten days, when I layed my hands on him in the name of Jesus Christ, and routed the disease, and commanded it to depart. I disclaim having any power of my self to do these things. Jesus Christ has called me to do these things, in His name. He gives the power and He shall have all the Glory. This is not Christian Science, is not hypnot ism. Is not fakeism, but is the work that Jesus and the Anostles fontimi- 1; , h i e earth, and is j without money and without price. Wm. F. Manley, 414 south fourteenth street. FIRE AT KELLEY, BRICE & COMPANY'S CLOTHING STORE BADLY DAMAGED. TO EXTENT OF $40,000 Several Persons Were Badly Injured The Building Almost a Total Loss.

JAMES WHELAN SHARON JONES EDITOR STIVERS AN- ASPIRANT FOR SENATORIAL HONORS AND GIVES REASONS WHY. THINKS HENRY COUNTY Will Concede the Nomination to Fay ette or Union His Letter. C. W. Stivers, editor and proprie tor of the Liberty Herald would like to wear the legislative toga and in the following letter explains the case: Liberty, Ind., Feb. 15, 1904. It was known to my friends, four years ago that I was an aspirant for the nominatiaon for State Senator and I desire now through your pa per to say that in ease the supreme court decides the apportionment act of 1903 to be unconstitutional, as now seems probable, that I will-be a candi date for state senator in the district composed of Fayette, Henry and Union counties. Henry county hav ing held the senatorship for eight years will certainly be willing to con cede the nomination to one of the oth er counties in the district. Fayette county has had a repre sentative in the legislature in her joint association right along, but Union has not had a Republican representa tive in either branch of the General Assembly for fourteen years and feels strong in her claim to recognition. Personally I have confidence in the fairness and sense of justice of the Republican voters of Henry, as also of Fayette and Union, and am will ing to stibmit my candidacy with that of competitors to a popular vote of the district and abide the result. Fortunately all three of the coun ties have adopted the popular vote method of selecting candidates, and if we return to the former apportion ment I shall ask as one of aspirants that the choice be decided in the way. Yours for Roosevelt, Bevdridge and Repubican principles. Charles W. Stivers. LOYAL LEGION Have a Banouet at the Columbia Club, Indianapolis.

TATE SET FREE BY JUDGE FOX HE RENDERS A LENGTHY TYPE WRITTEN OPINION AND DISCHARGES PRISONER Says Witnesses For Tate Told the Truth or Perjured Them selves. In the matter of the extradition of Clarence Tate, tried in the Wayne circuit court, Judge Henry C. Fox, after hearing all the witnesses for both sides, rendered his decision this morning in a six-page tj'pe-written statement. Our readers are thorough ly conversant with ihe case, and, as the opinion is lengthy, we only pub lish the closing paragraph, which is as follows : "If the testimony of Clarence Tate and of the six witnesses who corrob orate him is true that he was in Richmond on the evening of the first day "of November last, then his guilt, as testified to by Ellis, would be im possible, for he could not be in the city of Richmond and at the same time be -with Ellis in the state of Ohio as he, Ellis, swears. The six witnesses who corroborate Tate as to his being in Richmond on the night of November first, stand unimpeached. They all fix the date as being the day after the railway wreck mentioned. William Tate, the father, and his two sons, in addition, say they know it was the day the daughter returned from Washington, which was the next day after ihe rail way wreck: This makes the time reasonahy certain. These corroborat ing witnesses are all reputable citi zens of the city of Richmond. They are not mistaken in their testimony. They have either told the truth or committed perjury. Now the question is, shall I reject their testimony as unworthy of belief and accept that of Fred Ellis, who is a confessed and convicted felon f In my judgment, it has been made to appear clearly that the petitioner, Clarence Tate, was in the state of Indiana at the time the crime charged against him was committed in the state of Ohio, and that, for this rea son, he is not a fugitive from justice. The petitioner will be discharged. Henry C. Fox, Judge of the Wayne Circuit Court. SEEI FROM AFAR How the Sun-Telegram-Item War of Words Looks to the New Paris Mirror. (Xew Paris Mirror.)
