DOCTOR'S BES1 FORMULA
For Remarkably Quick Action on Colds
This prescription will frequently cure
the worst cold In a day's time and it is
a sure cure for any cough that can be
cured. "Two ounces Glycerine; half
ounce Concentrated Pine; Put these
into half a pint of Rood whiskey and
use in doses of teaspoonful to a table
spoonful every four hours. Shake bot
tle well each time." Any druggist has
these ingredients in stock or will quick
ly get them from his wholesale house.
The Concentrated Pine is a special
pine product and comes only in half
ounce vials each enclosed in an air
tight case; But be sure it is labeled
"Concentrated." This formula cured
hundreds here last winter.
Fog-Eye's Plaintive Protest.
Fog-Eye Smith of northwest Wy
oming bore an appalling facade. Ilia
stylo of beauty was a blight. Depend
ing upon his horrific exterior, he was
in the habit of trying to awe newcom
ers. On one occasion, affecting some
displeasure at the manner in which a
pallid stranger watered his liquor, Mr.
Smith announced, frowning, that un
less he detected immediate amend
ment he would send the neophyte
home in a market basket. "Which I'll
sure tear you up a whole lot," said
Fog-Eye. Half an hour later Mr. Smith
was found groping about on the floor
under the poker table, hunting for his
glass eye, and muttering to himself.
The stranger asked with some evi
dence of impatience what new line of
sentiments Mr. Smith was now har
boring. - That injured resident, glaring
malevolently from beneath the furni
ture, replied: "Which I sure do hate a
man with no sense of humor."

Many interesting features were ad
vertised in connection with a conven
tion of foreign missionaries home on
a vacation. "Hut the most interesting
of all was a sidelight on the regular
convention," said a woman who at
tended the meetings.
"The married members of that, mis
sionary band brought their small chil
dren to the hall and left them in the
rear room in charge of a kindergar
ten teacher. Those youngsters had
been born in heathen lands and had
spent the three or four years of their
little lives there. They had picked
up the language of the natives, and
when their shyness wore off and their
tongues limbered up a miniature babel
seemed to have sprung up in that
back room. Greenland's icy mountains
and India's coral strands and a score
of uncivilized places in between were
represented with a vengeance. The
little people had been accustomed to
the aboriginal languages and they
spoke them in preference to English.
Gradually it dawned upon them, how
ever, that they possessed a common
tongue and finally all warmed up to
English, but previous to that their at
tempts at conversation were a queer
study in primitive languages."

A Tragic Comedy.
An incident possessing all the ele
ments of farce has just ended tragical
ly in New York. A well-known poli
tician, returning home late, entered his
block of fiats, and reached, as he sup
Dosed, his own front door. This he
opened, and then he walked in. The
tenant, however, had had a previous
alarm of burglary, and had just pur
chased a revolver for self-defense. He
was aroused by the noise of the door
shutting, and, jumping up, exclaimed:
"Who's there? Answer, or I fire."
The unfortunate politician, who was
deaf, paid no attention, but thinking
he was in his own room calmly struck
a match. He was promptly shot dead.
What made the affair possible was the
fact that all the door locks in the
j building were of the same pattern.
FEARFUL SUFFERING CAUSED BY
EGGS OF PARASITE WHICH IT
MAY CONTAIN STATE
MENT BY A PRIEST.
Omaha, Neb., Feb. 2. Probably the
most unusual feature of the excite
ment that has been created by L. T.
Cooper's visit to this city is the re
moval of parasites or tape worms by
During the early part of Cooper's
stay in Omaha individuals who were
taking "New Discovery," as it is called,
thought either to himself or to physi
sians throughout the city immense
parasites that had left the system
after using the medicine.
Many of these people were fright
ened, and cases of this sort became so
numerous that Cooper finally made
the following statement for publica
tion: He said: "In every city I visit j
these things are brought to me within
a few days after my medicine is sold
in the city. They are what Is known
as the tape-worm, and grow to an
"Few, indeed, realize how prevalent
these creatures are. I think I have
been, the first to demonstrate what a
large factor they are in the poor health
of this generation. I believe that
fully one-half of the chronic stomach
trouble now so universal is caused by
"Individuals may have them for
years and not be aware of the reason
for their continued ill-health, but at
tribute it to many different diseases,
when in reality one of these creatures
Is robbing them of their vitality.
"These parasites are taken into the
system in uncooked food or raw meat,
in the form of an egg, which hatches
almost immediately. People suffering
from them experience a feeling of
lassitude and are extremely nervous.
The action of Cooper's ' 'New Discov
ery' seems to be fatal to these great
worms, and in most cases a few doses
of the medicine drives the creatures
from the system. I wil have hundreds
of them brought to me before I leave
This grewsome prophecy has been
amply verified, for not only, hundreds
but thousands of Omaha people have
been relieved of some of these fearful
parasites since taking Cooper's prep
aration, and the entire city has been
aroused by the fact.
Some of these parasites are of such
enormous size as to startle the im
agination. The statement of Father
John Baptist Arnolis, one of the best
known and best beloved priests in
this seotion of the country verifies
this. His statement, among others
given to a reporter, was as follows:
"For years I suffered from what I
thought was a general" run-down con
dition of the system caused by stom
ach trouble. I felt extremely tired all
the time, and it was a great effort to
attend to my duties. I would wake
up in .the morning feelipg as worn out
as when I went to bed. If I stood for
any length of time I would have pain
in the lower part of my back, and
would have to sit down.
"I was very nervous and depressed
In spirits, and was troubled with dizzy
spells. I would see spots before my
eyes when I stooped over and raised
up quickly. I had a very irregular ap
petite, and would have palpitation of
the heart after ascending the stairs.
"The talk about Cooper's prepara
tions was so universal that I decided
to try some, although I do not take
patent medicines as a rule. I took
four doses of the 'New Discovery' as
it is called, and . a tape-worm about
sixty feet in length left my system.
"I am very thankful for this great
relief, and now I know what has been
the cause of all my suffering."
The story of Father Arnolis is a
fair sample of the experience of an
astonishing number of Omaha people
and Cooper's preparations are selling
here in immense quantities. It is now
estimated that he has sold one hun
dred thousand bottles to date in this
city alone, and the sale is still in
creasing. Certainly Not Present.

AGO HE HAD LESS
THAN 3 DOLLARS
HE IS NOW ONE OF THE RICHEST
FARMERS IN SASKATCHEWAN,
Arriving in Canada in 1891, just
eighteen years ago, E. A. Guillomin
could speak but his native language.
He is a Frenchman. He had but
a little over two dollars in his pocket,
thus being .short over seven, dollars of
the ten dollars required to secure en
try for a homestead of one hundred
and sixty acres. He eventually bor
rowed the money and near Forget,
Saskatchewan, he started life in Can
ada on the homestead in which to-day
he is the fortunate possessor of fifty
quarter sections of land, or 8,000 acres.
Now Mr. Guillomin did not acquire
all these acres as a result altogether of
his farming operations, which were
extensive. He looked with satisfac
tion upon what he was doing on his
limited area, he was saving, careful,
and had foresight. Surrounding land
could be had for about $3.00 per acre,
and he continued buying as his sav
ings would permit, until now he has
fifty quarter sections, some of which
he can sell at $25.00 per acre.
Threshed Fifty Thousand Bushels.
This year he was engaged in thresh
ing on his place for 54 days. He
threshed out 50,000 bushels of wheat,
of which he sold 34,000 bushels, one
train load, at a price varying from 84
to 87 cents per bushel. He has on
hand still 16,000 bushels. In addition
to wheat he raised 30,000 bushels of
oats, 7,000 bushels of barley and 500
bushels of flax. He owns 104 horses
and a number of cattle, but since the
construction of the railway he has
been engaged chiefly in raising wheat.
This year he bought his first thresh
ing machine, paying for it the sum
of $2,100. He estimates that the ma
chine earned for him this fall $3,000,
thus paying for itself in one season
and leaving $900 to the good. The
weather was very propitious for farm
threshing, not a single day being lost
in the two months which were spent
in this work. The wheat averaged 23
bushels to the acre and graded No. 1
and No. 2 Northern. In the past nine
years seven good crops have been har
vested on this farm. For six succes
sive years the returns were excellent,
that is in the . years 1901, 1902, 1903,
1904, 1905 and 1906. In the two fol
lowing years there was a partial fail
ure. As the years have passed the
quality of the buildings on the farm
have been steadily improved, and are
now as good as can be found in the
district. About $10,000 has been in
vested In this way by Mr. Guillomin.
The -farm consists of 6,880 acres, of
which about 6,000 acres were under
crop this season.
