Francis Schlatter, or his Impersonator, is drawing great crowds to this city. reople are Hocking from near by towns to te cured by the man who claims to be the healer who created so much stir In the West two years ago. and was since reported dead in the Sierra II a (Ire mountains In Mexico. The Canton healer says that he Is Schlat ter, and that he did not die In Mexico. He tells a story of Ions Journeying In the West. THE ORIGINAL SCHLATTER - In the South and In the East. He says he shaved off his beard In order that he might pass through the country unrecognized. He announces that he will stay In Canton until a million people have come to him to be cured. And Judging by the crowds he draws every day. he Is well on the way. Whether he be the original Schlatter or only an Imi tation, this divine healer Is a remarkable man In more than one way. Came In the Mght. He came here in the quiet of an evening a, little more than a week ago. No herald preceded him. and the first Intimation that Cantonlans had of the presence of the man who has won fame as a healer was when he began oh the public square to sit in almost pensive silence awaiting the coming of those who have long suffered bodily In firmities. He had not. long to wait. The crowd gathered. People watched to ascer tain what It was that caused others to halt. The multitude soon began to shove, and each one tried to get a better glimpse of the strange man within the circle of curlos Itvseekers about him. Pushing through the crowd, one saw seat ed on the chair furnished him from the temple of Justice of the county of Stark, hard by. a strange-looking Individual, with hair hanging down to his shoulders in red dish brown curls, an angular-looking man clad in a gray suit rather the worse for wear. This Is the man who claims to be the original Schlatter. He sits In silence and has a far-away look. When a patient comes to htm the "divine healer" glances at him. places a hand on the comer and IS HE FRANCIS SCHLATTER? motion him onward. Jf the stranger Is supported by cane or crutch he is bade leave this behind and walk without. Schlatter has collected a largo number of crutches and canes, which he has put on a pile. What he will do with theses supports of th people who came with them and went without he has not declared, but It Is certain that all who go away crutch ! and caneless are only too glad to forget the upports that have betn theirs, and if Schlatter should see fit to sell or barter the property lielonglng to his patients not cne would be present to offer a protest. Fasts tint IJrlnUs Whisky. The man who claims to be Schlatter had r.ot bewi hre long until hi declared that he would fast for twenty days. He says h Is now doing thl.

Schlatter Is regular in his habits, so far .is commencing and ceasing work are con cerned. He has appointed times for tn.it. and by 9 o'clock In the morning he is at his post. He does not need to wait tor people now; they are waiting for li m.

Newsboys have caught the Infec tion, and the lads carry kerchiefs a thing entirely new and without use In their case and wrap them over a stubbed toe or sport them across the dirty lips, sore from want of soap or lack of care. Is Schlatter healing the people? Hundreds of them declare that he Is. There have been many Instances of citizens who have long been known for their uprightness and in tegrity who come out and assert with a posltlveness that carries with it all the weight of sincerity, that they are living ex amples of what he has done. There are some who also aver they have received no good from the alleged healer.' Schlatter does not profess to be able to cure anything and everybody. He only does, he says, what he feels called on to do, nml the results are not his to look after. Whether he blesses people or handkerchiefs, the manner of the man Is much the same. First come, first served Is his motto. Money not necessary. Is the cry that has become circulated, but there Is scarcely a person who does not feel called on to drop something as an of fering for the services of their supposed benefactor. In five minutes, by actual count. Schlat ter received seven 25-cent pieces. This kept up for one hour meant $21. Occasionally some one comes to see him who drops a piece of money Into the keeping of the man that is of enough value to counterbalance many moneyless patients. Money Rolls In. Financially. Schlatter has struck It rich In Canton. The home of the cry of pios- Ecrity has shown to him that the people ave something In store, and the healer is getting his part of It rapidly. He has ad mitted that his short stay in Canton has been very protitable, and skeptics of the THE SENSATION AT CANTON. "healer's" art stand by and wonder wheth er It would not pay better to be fakir in Canton than to be seeker of gold In the Klondike region. At any rate, there Is many a toiler who would be delighted to get the Income of Schlatter for Just one, day. Hut Schlatter states he has no need of money. All his hotel bills, he avers, are paid by somebody else, he does not know who. neither does he care. His clothing likewise Is given film. He admits that this jx-cullar trait of his has caused him trouble time and again and put him In u light be fotc the public which, to the ordinary man, would have proved very embarrassing. Since coming to Canton an instance of that kind has been the lot of the "healer." He was In Minerva, a village twenty miles dis tent, a thort time. While therevhe became well known to Philip Beck, the landlord of the village hotel. Beck came to be Schlat ter In Canton, and after salutatjIfeK invit ed the healer to have a drink islth him. Schlatter declined with thanks wn Mr. Heck rejoufced: ynv t fc. , v heSLirtQUt that shirt you took from one of my board ers when you left Minerva?" "Oh. never mind that," replied Schlatter, "I did not do very well In your town. "But what about the pay for the shlrt7 Insisted Mr. Beck. . . . ,.. "How much was it worth?" queried the divine healer. ,. Being Informed that It was worth .j cents Schlatter drew forth a roll of money and proceeded to settle for the "borrowed shirt. He said: "Here is your money. I did not do very well In your place, but am doing all right here." Sat for IIU Picture. Schlatter was asked by n press repre sentative for his picture. The healer said he had none, but would sit providing the' expense was met. This was readily as sented to. and the healer prepared to go to a photographer. A friend with him sug gested that he look us well as possible. To that end Schlatter put on his best and brushed back bis flowing locks so that they fell In graceful folds on his shoul ders and gave a peculiar air to the sharp cut features of the strange man. Arrived at the gallery, the photographer suggest ed that the healer have a clean shave before his likeness be caught In the ca mera. To this Schlatter also assented, and when he sat for the picture, the first that ho has had taken here In fact, the lirst he has had taken since, as he says, he has had his beard shaved off Schlatter was clean and nresented a SDlck and span appearance. It made him a trlflo late that morning when he arrived at his customary stand for healing. But he ap peared satisfied and seemed immensely pleased that his likeness had been caught and was to be reproduced. Though Schlatter was late, the people were not. The Influx from rural districts was much greater than heretofore, a fact accounted for when It Is known that the first weekly and semi-weekly papers of the county had Ju?i been received by the country folks, telling of the wonderful cures said to have ln-en wrought by him. Hum a Turinllle. To facilitate, matters he has had arranged a. peculiar barricade made of scantling, boards and boxes. Tho ingress and egress Is narrow. Schlatter sits within on a throne a dry goods box. It is not all work with Schlatter. He as serts that continuous labor undermines his constitution, and if he did not take respite frequently he would not be able to do any thing. In the evenings he goes about the city, takes a run to the summer resorts near by, goes to spiritual seances, walks about town and has a good time In general. He sleeps much. How much he drinks no one but himself exactly knows, although he says he limits himself to a fixed number of drinks of Honor dallv. About 7 o'clock is the hour for rising. When his work be comes oppressive he suddenly stops and dis appears, and is deaf to the entreaties of those who nre in waiting. They must be patient until he comes again. Cantonlans are divided as to the power of this man. who declares he is the original Schlatter. The difference of opinion fur nishes a topic for discussion, and the par ticipants to the arguments may be seen at all times on the streets, quoting Scripture and occasionally using language forbidden bv the Scripture to enforce the arguments offered. NOT BORROWING MONEY NOW. The People nf Knnaaa Have Learned to Depend t'pon Their Own Itesonrees. Topeka. Kas., Aug. 8. (Special.) Hon. P. I. Bonebrake, In referring to Kansas commercial conditions, observed: Kansas has learned to depend upon her own resources, not on borrowing money In the East. A brief review wltl show what success has attended her efforts. In one little Kansas town of 40,000 people (Kansas City. Kas.), there was marketed in the year 1SS6: Cattle 1.714.532 Calves lOO.lGO Hogs 2,B03,575 Sheep D93.I2G Total 5.413,339 valued by the secretary of the Stock ex change at $103,402,293, more live stock than was marketed at any other place In the Union except Chicago, "52 per cent of which was produced by Kansas." This statement does not include live stock shipped direct to Chicago, Omaha and St. l.ouis. ZINC AND LEAD. Within a radius of ten miles of Galena. Crawford county, zinc and lead have been produced amounting to $i.0ll,&ul. and yet the industry is in its infancy. Twenty-six per cent of the zinc mined In the country is mined in the Galena district.

One year ago the coun try was convulsed with the cry for free coinage of silver. Yet how Insignificant is the production of the gold and silver mines with the hen product. In 1S35 the total production of gold and silver In the United States equaled $119,120, 000. At the same time the hen production equaled $290,000.1100 (so says the Rural New Yorker), and yet the hen never struck nor asked legislation to double the value of her Sroduct. but kept on, attending strictly to usiness. SALT. The salt beds In the Arkansas valley are almost unlimited. The deposit so far pros pected is forty miles long and several miles broad, lteno county being the center of the present production. Salt Is found about 4'JO feet under the surface, and the bed is 300 feet thick. Iist year tho production equaled 1.250,000 barrels, worth $1.2M,000. Were it not that the commodity is too cheap to be transported, Kansas could furnish the nation with salt. COAL. Coal Is found In fourteen counties of the state, the larger portion In Southeastern Kansas. The veins are forty Inches thick, and from sixty to eighty feet under the surface. In 1S95 (last report) 9.357 miners were employed. 2.190.S13 tons produced of a value of U590.H1. There Is no provision of law whereby the annual production of manufacturing enterprises can be obtained. Referring t the United States statistics of 190 we llnil that only three towns are reported. There nre now at least fifty towns where there were more or less manufactured products. The three cities. Kansas City, Kas., To peka and Wichita, report $.5.9fle.751 pro ceeds of manufacture.

Cynthia Ann Parker was the daughter of a Baptist missionary, who went to the frontier in the early '303 to preach Chris tianity among the Indians. One night when the Rev. Parker and his family were camp ed out oh the prairies near where the little town of Seymour, Tex., now stands, a band of Comanche Indians in full war paint, headed by the murderous Quanah, swept down upon them. Mr. and Mrs. Par ker and the children abandoned tho wagons and lied in the tall grass, but In some man ner Cynthia Ann, then about 4 years old, became separated irom her parents and was captured and carried away by the Indians. Parker made his way after days of rough traveling, and undergoing all manner of hardships, to a whlte,settlement 1U0 miles to the southward. Here he left the women and children and organized a party to go In pursuit of the Comanches. The party encountered Quanah and his band on the banks of the Wichita river and a hard fight ensued in which the red men were repulsed and driven to their reserva tion. Trie lown oi vuanan nas since ukku built upon the scene of this battle and Is now one of the most Important trading points in North Texas. Parker, though unsuccessful In his at tempt to rescue little Cynthia Ann, did not givo up hope, and returning to the fort be gan making preparations for another triaL Years passed, during which time the Co manches were constantly on the warpath, and though Parker and his band had sev eral tights with them, nothing was seen or heard of the lime gin. After the annexation of Texas to the Union, government troops were sent to aulet the Indian disturbances in the Vest and the Comanches, as well as all other tribes, were brought under Mirvelllance and made to abandon the war dance. Then Cynthia Ann Parker was recovered to her parents, a oeaumui gin, jusr. uuuuing into womanhood. She was found in the Coman che camps dressed in the garb of an Indian princess and worshiped as the queen of her race. She had forgotten her white friends and had learned to love the red man and the wild romance of Indian life. When told through an Interpreter (for she had forgot ten her native tongue) that the gray haired man who stood liefore her with watery eyes and bent head was her father, and that her old mother waited anxiously for her coming In the little farm house down In Texas, the girl could not understand It, and throwing her arms arounu me necK oi me great cniei she protested against being taken away. Old Ouanah. who had grown reDentnnt in his old age. Induced her to accompany her father, witn me unuerstanumg mat she could return If not satisfied with her new home. Rev. Parker nt this time lived in Au drain county, Tex., near the little village of Palestine, which Is now a prosperous and growing city. He owned a large plan tation, and his children had grown to wom anhood and manhood and married off, and they owned big farms. When Cynthia Ann was taken to her people, her brothers and sisters and their children and the people for miles and miles gathered at Parson Parker's home to welcome her. but the strange girl, who had been taught ever since her canture bv the Indians to Lata the white people, did not appreciate any thing that was done lor ner, and even when embraced by her old mother she wished that she was back again In the camp of her old friends. For several months she remained with her people, but spent most of her time in the woods, where she always seemed to feel the happiest. She seemed to be pining her life away and her parents decided that she had better go back to the Indians, although It was like giving her up to the grave to have her leave her own blood and kin. Cynthia Ann was welcomed back to the Comanches' camp with great pomp and ceremony and again resumed her station as queen of the tribe. Soon afterwards old Quanah Chase took her as one of his wives, and as the fruit of this union a son was born, who was named for the old chief, and who inherited his title as chief of the tribe upon the father's death. Young Quanah belonged to a new genera tion and has done as much ,to bring about a feeling of reconciliation among the white men and his people as his famous sire did to promote war and conflict between the two races. Quanah was given a college edu cation and was broadmlnded and states manlike In all of his dealings. Under his leadership the Comanches have never giv en the government trouble, and he was looked upon and regarded as one of the most able chiefs of the present time. Cynthia Ann Parker died some years ago and was buried among the Indians with whom she had lived so long.
