fcVOL. XXIII.—NO. 13. MADE THE DEAF HEAR IN ONE MINUTE Remarkable Demonstration Given by Chicago’s Strange Philanthropist Before Im £ mense Throng. Remove* Immense Parasite From System of Well-Known Man With a Few Doses of Peculiar Medicine—Refuses Pay for Services. Chicago, Oot tt, 1907—Special.— i Xxoltemen t over the marvelous cures ai I* T. Cooper cohUpqa unabated. One of the largemmpwde that has 1 yet called upon phltsn- , tbropiat visited him yesterday, and a remarkable dedgOhStraMeo of hie power was given before- the entire | audience. Selecting an elderly gen tleman, whom he noticed carrying 1 an ear trumpet, Cooper motioned for him to come forward. He poured a 1 few drops of a peculiar liquid into the man's ears, and then rubbed them softly for a moment Stepping 1 quickly backward to 4 distance of elxtyfeethe asked in an ordinary . conversational tone, “Can you hear me?*’ A look of surprise and delight 1 spread over the man's face as he an- 1 swered, "Yes, I hear you perfectly." : The gentleman was Mr. John * ▲uftning, 87 Boston avenue. Mr. 1 Auftning stated that he had been j deaf for many years. He said : "For nearly nineteen years I heard ] nothing. I had a terrible rumbling noise constantly In my head that was almost maddening. It appeared at about the time I lost my‘sense of hearing, and no 'matter what treat- ( ment or remedies 1 tried I could' find 1 no relief. Once W a long while I oould just barely distinguish a noise. 1 but in all of those long years I was , unable to hear a human voice. I had ' given up hope and had resigned my self to a life of silence when I read of the Cooper preparations "Thirty -dnyfvggp . I began the Cooper treatment and my condition was almost Immediately improved. I began to have confidence and took |o the Cooper medicines alone, loan hear as well as I ever did in my life. My family and every one that knows me will testify to the wonderful oure in my ease. I shall always be gratelul to Mr. Cooper for what he has done for me, and I want other people who are deaf to know that there is yet hope for them." Many of those who called had oome to tbsnh Mr. Cooper for what he had done for them, they having previously written him a statement ( of their condition and having fol lowed his instructions, had returned to tell him of their cures. A gentleman by the name of Emil Winkler exhibited a glass jar con taining a parasite eighty feet long which he claimed had passed from his system after taking seven doses of Cooper's medicine. The parasite was alive and squirming, and Mr. Winkler was anxious to know what it was. Whsn Cooper informed him the cause of his ill health had been re moved, be was greatly relieved and was profuse In his thanks to the philanthropist. Thousands of people viewed the parasite and expressed surprise that such a thing could exist in the hu man system. Mr. Winkler is a well known elec trioian living at 182 East Ohio street. In speaking of his experience tie said: "For five years I have been more or less complaining. I have had se vere headaches and hriy food that I would eat would nauseate’ me. I would have bad dreams almost every night, dizzy spells would compel me to quit work. Black spots would ap pear before my eyes when stooping over and rising quickly. I would feel tired most of the time; in fact I have had no life in me to speak of for the last five years. I tried vari our treatments, and one physician in St. Louis was recommended to me and I was under his treatment some time, but as usual I obtained no re lief. So many people asked me to try the Cooper preparations I decided to do so, and after using it for a few days this awful thing passed from my system. I feel much better al ready, and I want to state right here that I thank Mr. Cooper a hundred times for what bis medicine has done for me. I would not take $6,000 and havo that thing back in my system again." A story with a touch of pathos was related by a gentleman conversant with the faote that illustrate the kindly nature of the philanthropist, and explains to a great degree his wonderful hold upon the people. A delicate woman whoso face bore traces of care and. suffering and firhose frail body was distorted by he fovages dFdiseasa, called at the , Public Drug Store and asked for Mr. CbOper, but he was out and the little Wbman turned away resignedly, but sadly disappointed. To her it was another stroke of misfortune, and she turned her . weary steps toward the little home where a sick husband was awaiting bet* 'return. But her disappointment was of short duration, for Cooper was just then coming up the street. Not ing the careworn look nnd halting step, he came quickly forward and assisted her carefully over the cross- . ing. By a few kindly well directed questions he learned that she had been to call oq Mr. Cooper to secure medicine for her sick husband who hud been ill for a long time, unable to provide even the burept necessities for his family. The poor woman was greatly as tonished when she found that she w’as talking to Mr. Cooper himself. He assisted her back to the drug store, supplied her not only witli the required medicines, but also with a generous handful of silver, and seut her home with a light heart and smiles shining through tears. That night a big basket of groceries was left at the little home and it was not hard to gueaa who was the donor. Another feature of Cooper’s visit to this city and one that has attracted a great deal of attention, is the many cures of rheumatism that have been effected by the use of his remedies. mnwag IN —rtwrwTßitnkde ■ ments on this subject was Louise Herman, 946 North avenue, who said: “I have for years been a sufferer from rheumatism and kidney com plaint. At times I was unable to walk and my back was very weak. My limbs were very sore and swollen and I was in a very nervous condi tion. I could not sleep at night, al ways felt tired in the morning, and would often have severe headaches. My health had entirely broken down and I had begun to feel as if life was not worth living. I had tried differ ent medicines, but all to no avuil. Nothing seemed to help me and I did not know what it was to have a well or happy day. “One evening I was reading in the papers what great results Cooper’s New Discovery and Quick Relief were accomplishing in Chicago and 1 made up my mind to give them a trial, and if they were what the papers said they were, why then I would surely receive some benefit. “So I purchased some of the medi cine and after the first few days I no ticed that iny sleep was more restsul and that the pain in my limbs was ivit so bad. I kept on using the med icine and after two weeks I had nearly recovered my health. I can never say enough about these medi cines, for I never expected to see a w. Il day again, and here I am enjoy ing life with my friends and all duo to the wonderful New Discovery. ‘•I want to say that it is the great est remedy In the world, for it has made me a well woman where all others failed.” PUBLIC NOTICE.

Tlie following from the last Issue of the Rtfi<> Telegram shows that there is a striking analogy between the history of the Meeker and Rifle creameries : “At a meeting of the stockholders of the Rifle Creamery Association last Monday evening, it was decided to run the creamery until the end of the present month uudor the present management, after which it is prob able that tiie plant will t>c disposed of to private parties, and it will then be run as an individual coucern. “Like a good many other business propositions, the Rifle creamery was started by a number of men who knew and felt that a creamery was badly needed in this territory, but who were without experience in the management of a concern of that des cription, and as a result the earnings qf the creamery have not been nearly so much as the stockholders hadbeeu led to believe would be assured. “Tills result has been partly due to the fact that the creamery was started before the men who had guar anteed the output of a certain number of cows were in a position to furnish all they had guaranteed, and from the further fact that a number who had signed these guarantees have made no attempt whatever to fulfill their part of the contract. “Another element which worked against the complete success of the creamery was the ignorance with re gard to tho properties of the milk supply furnished, by the people who furnished, and their inability to dis cern that while one animal might furnish a large quantity of milk, another of a different and a better creamery breed might furnish a con siderable less quantity of milk, yet containing a larger amount of butter fat, and the inability of a number of the creamery customers to take these facts into consideration, in some cases caused suspicion that the customer was not getting a fair deal, and be eventually ceased to be a customer. However, if the creamery shall be sold to some reliable man—sofne one whom the customers shall have im plicit confidence in, and who will gp to the trouble of explaining why ones customer is paid more money for tbe output from one oow than customer is paid* froma ' ‘afiTtnal, and who understands Ito a considerable extent the creamery business and some of the peculiar wrinkles in weak human nature, there is no doubt the Rifle creamery can he made a decided success. “One thing is certain, in running a business of this description, someone has got to be the absolute “boss,” as in the carrying forward of this or any other business, the attempt to recon cile the different opinions of a dozen men regarding any certain policy is hound to end disastrously. With the creamery in tiie hands of one man there seems to be no reason why it should not be made to pay, and pay big.” An Engineering Triumph. The recent trip of the steamer Lusi tania from New York to Quecustown, Ireland, in 4 days, 19 hours, and 52 minutes, has attracted world-wide attention, not only on account of the quick passage made, but also on ac count of the many features of engi neering interest connected with tiie trip. The marine engineer, and architect, the electrical engineer, the mechan ical engineer, and decorators, and furnishers, and artisans in many | linos, are represented in tiie lines of; work called for in tiie building of the ship. The ship made fast time for a long voyage; she made tiie fastest time from New York to any European port, at an average speed of 23.39 knots per hour, or 25.9 ti statute or land miles por hour. This time made by this monster ship, tiie largest in tho world, easily gives her first place for a long ocean voyage. In 1838, the steamer Great Western j crossed tiie Atlantic in fourteen and one-half days. In 1840, the Cunard line steamer 1 Europa crossed from Livotpool to! New York in 11 days and 3 hours. The Lucania crossed in 5 days, 7 j hours, and 23 minutes, from Queens town to New York in 1894. This over j a course of 2,779 miles. About this | time the North German Lloyd, and ! tiie American lines, were trying fori records across the Atlantic fromj Southhampton to New York, a dis tance of 3,060 miles. Tiie record was held for some time j by the Bt. Paul, Paris and New York, ! of the American line—the St. Paul making tho trip in 6 days and 31 i minutes. Next tho Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse made the record of sdays, 22 hours and 36 minutes, Southlmmp- i ton to New York. In 1899, this ves-! sel crossed in 5 days, 17 hours and . 37 minutes. • la 1900 tiie Deutschland made the , trip from Cherburg, France, to New t York in o days, 18 hours and 27 tuln x utea, and in 1901, she lowered her , own record by six minutes. The Krou Prinz Wilhelm, of the Nortb German Lloyd line —in 1908 — 1 croeeed in 6 days, 11 hours and 67 | minute and iu 1903 the Deutschland . made tiie trip in 6 days, 11 hours aud 64 minutes. ' Id September, 1907, the Lusitania ‘ covered tiie distance in 6 days and 64 minutes, breaking all records. A 1 month later she made her present re cord of four days, 19 hours and 62 * minutes, which is marvelous. 1 It is quite probable that tiie Lusi ' tania will hold “The blue ribbon of 1 the Atlantic” for some time, al ' though it is already rumored that 1 tbf Mauritania, the sister ship of the Lusitania, just launched and tried, 1 is a splendid vessel and promises to be speedier than her rivaL She is also a turbine driven ship. , It Will be notioed that the rivalry in t tbiSS voyages lies nearly altogether be twesutUerinany and England, and it is „ believed by many that these great ships are built, each uation striving to outdo 1 the other, as much to be prepared with | good auxiliary ships in case of war aa * for soy other purpose. | Tbs Germans are at the present time ooualfucting a ship which is larger in everyday than the Lusitania. It will 1 be put iu cotnmissiou in 1910. 1 The best day’s run of the Lusitania ' on bar last trip was 610 knots, or 718.64 statufe miles, which beats all previous * records This is 9 kuote better than ’ tbe record formerly held by tbe Deutsch* 1 land. Tbe Lusitania is drirtn by steam ’ turbines of euormous size, nearly sev ■ eaty thousand horse power, and from * the need she made it seems as If the ’ day 4 r steam turbine had come.
