The Great Cooper as He is Called Has Stirred
That City to a Remarkable Degree.
Cincinnati, O.. Jan. 31. This city
is at present In the midst of an excite
ment beyond anything that It has ex
perienced in many years.
Old and younr, rich and poor, all
seem to have become beside them
selves over an individual who was a
stranger to Cincinnati up to two
weeks ago.
The man who has created all this
turmoil Is L. T.Cooper, Precedent of
the Cooper Medicine Co., of Dayton.
Ohio, who Is at present introducing
liis preparations In this city for the
first time.
Cooper Is a man about thirty years
of age and has acquired a fortune
within the past two yeirs by the sale
of some preparations of which he Is
tne owner.
Reports from eastern cities that
preceded the young man here were of
the most startling nature. Many of
the leading dailies going so far as to
state that he had nightly cared in
public places deafness of years' stand
ing with one of his preparations. The
physicians of the East contradicted
this statement, claiming the thing to
be impossible, but the facts seemed
to bear out this statement that Coop
er actually did so. ' . .
In consequence people flocked to
him by thousands and his prepara
tions sold like wildfire.
Many of these stories were regard
ed as fictitious in Cincinnati and un
til Cooper actually reached the city
little attention was paid to them
however, when he began giving demon
strations, as he calls them, in public
and daily met ieoDle afflicted with
deafness unci with a single application
or one or nis preparations actually
made dear people hear again
In addition to this work Cooper ad
vanced tne theory that stomach trou
ble Is the foundation of nine out o
ten diseases and claimed to have i
preparation that would restore the
stomach to working order and thus
get rid of such troubles as rheuta
tism and affections of Die kidneys
ana mer, in aoout two weetcsiluie
This statement seems to have been
borne out by the remarkable results
obtained through the use of his prepa
ration, ana now ail Cincinnati Is ap
parontly mad over the young man.
His headquarters resemble a veri
table stampede. Thousands of people
are visiting him each day, and the
druggists are selling his medicines in
enormous quantities
What seems to make Cooper still
more popular is the fact that he prac
tices extensive cnarttaoie worK ana
has already dispensed a small fortune
among the poor of the city
How long the tremendous interest
In Cooper will last Is hare to estimate
A t present there seems to be no sign
of a let-up Reputable physicians
claim it to be a fad that will die out
as soon as Cooper leaves
, In Justice, to him, however, it must
be said that he seems to have accom
plished a great deal for the sick of

Tells Story of Great Devastation near
Hickman. ,
David Bullard, 67 years old, a ref
ugee from the country flooded by
the Ohio River, applied tor lodging
at the Police Station on Sunday
night. The aged man came here
in search of an uncle, David Far
rel, who formerly lived near iMash
ville, but whom he learned had re
returned to Dyer County. Mr. Bul
lard stated that be came here to re
main with bis uncle until the flood
subsides. He stated that he had
enough money to pay his railroad
fare to Nashville, but was almost
penniless on Sunday. '
Mr. Bullard said he was a mem
ber of the camn of naner wood
gatherers on Obion Creek, about six
miles from Hickman, Ky., and that
the entire camp, consisting of abou
twenty-6ve or thirty shanties, wa
swept away by the high water.
"My cabin was swept aoout one
mile, where it was turned over and
grounded." said the aged man,
Mr. Bullard stated that there
were no signs of the place where
the camp of paper woodworkers was
located at the time he left, and he
thought that the water was abou
ten or twelva feet deep at the place
where the cabins of the paper wood
workers stood. So far as he heard
there had been no loss of life in the
vicinity where he resided, all of his
neighbors succeeding in getting out
of tne locality. The flood was the
worst he had ever known.
I had a good skiff in which
succeeded in getting away from the
camp, said Mr. Uullard. wish
that I bad it with me now, as
could get back with it much quick
er than I can walk."
The aged man wa9 very feeble
and was greatly disappointed when
he learned that his uncle had re
moved trom this county, He ex
pressed bis intention of walking
back to his home. His case was
one which would arouse much sjtn
pathy, as he seemed to have had no
experience on such trips. He was
given lodging for the night at the
Police Station. Nashville Ameri

Dies at Fulton.
Mrs. Wili Pannel, aged 22, died
at 12 o'clock last night at her home
in West Fulton. She had been sick
with catarrh "or the stomach for
more than two years, and for the
past eighteen months had not been
able to leave her bed. While death
came as a welcome relief trom her
sufferings, it was. nevertheless, i
sad blow to her devoted husband.
A short time ago Mr. Pannel
brought his wife to Fulton from
Harris station, thinking perhaps
the change would be beneficial to
her, as better medical attention
could be secured here. The change
was of very little benefit to the in
valid, who steadily grew worse un
til released by death. Prior to her
marriage the deceased was Miss
Nora Webb, daughter ot Tom
Webb, of Harris. .
Besides her husband she is sur
vived by a pretty little three year
old babe. Fulton Leader.
