GIVE REASON FOR
With a theory that human health li
dependent on the stomach and with
a mcdlclno which ho snya proves
this theory , L. T. Cooper , a compara
tively young man , has built up nn 1m-
nionso following during the past year.
Cooper has visited most of the loadIng -
Ing cities of the country , nnd lu each
city has aroused n storm ot discussion
about his beliefs and his medicines.
Wherever ho has gone , people have
called upon him by tens of thousands ,
and his preparation has sold in lm <
The sale of this mcdlclno has now
spread over the ontlro country , nnd la
growing enormously each day. In
view of this , the following statements
from two of the great number of fol
lowers which ho now has , nro of gen
N. V. Marsh , residing at 217 South
Daly street , Lee Angeles , Cal. , has the
following to say upon the subject of
-tho Cooper preparations :
"For more than a year I experi
enced the most intense suffering , duo
to a form of stomach trouble which
the doctors called catarrhal gastritis.
After eating I would fill up with gas ,
which caused frequent belching. The
abdominal area would expand until I
could scarcely breathe , causing great
distress. At such times I could not
keep still , hut paced the streets for
hours until the pain subsided.
"Frequently I went without eating
rather than endure the lovturo that
was sure to follow. Liquids were the
only kind of food I could partake of
with safety. I had spells of dizzi
ness , nnd became badly run down
through suffering and lack of proper
nourishment. I tried various reme
dies In search of relief , but they failed
to help mo.
"Some time ago n brother member
In n lodge to which I belong urged mete
to try the Cooper remedies , which
were then being demonstrated in Los
Angeles. Ho stated that to his per
sonal knowledge they had been of
great benefit to others in a like condi
tion , and on the strength of his recom
mendation I procured a treatment of
Cooper's New Discovery.
"It proved helpful from the first
dose , nnd in loss than -week I was
eating regularly and heartily , without
experiencing any bad effects after
ward. Since taking the full treatment
I am perfectly well and enjoy living
for the first time in many months.
Now I can eat a hearty supper , then
go to bed and sleep like a healthy boy.
I feel so w'ell that I can hardly realize
I am the same man. Cooper's New
Discovery has worked a marvelous
change in me It has done all that
was claimed for it. "
Another statement by Mr. W. B.
Stewart , 109 W. Madison street , Chicago -
* cage , is as follows : "I have had atom-
k rich trouble for years , and anyone who
Is afflicted this way knows what an
awful distressed feeling it causes.
Many a time I have felt that I would
give most any price to be cured. It
was by accident that I heard of this
man Cooper's remedies. I immediate
ly made up my mind to buy n treat
ment of him. I used it for about two
weeks , and it Is impossible to tell
how much good it 'has done me. I
feel altogether different. I have more
life and energy than I have had for
years. The medicine certainly does
( stimulate and strengthen the who.o
system. Tired feeling and weak condi
tion of the stomach has entirely
passed away. I feel well again. "
Ceoper'a New Discovery is sold by
all druggists. If your druggist can
not supply you , wo will forward you
the name of a druggist in your city
who will. Don't accept "something
just as good. " The Cooper Medicine

Edmund Halley was probably ono of
the most Industrious and sagacious
astronomers that ever lived. At New
ton's request ho made a thorough In
vestigation of the movements and the
laws governing the comet o 1CS2 , and
boldly declared its identity with those
of 1450 , 1531 and 1C07. He predicted
It would return In the year 17GS , and
true to its period , it did return , and
was "picked up" by an amateur as
tronomer on Christmas day , of that
year. And this is why It came to bo
known as Ilalley's comet.
Orbit of Halley's Comet.
"When this comet appeared In 1456
the belief was general , among all the
classes , that it would destroy the
world. Much has been said and writ
ten about Pope Calllxtus III , with reC-
erenco to that visitation. 1'latlna ,
who was archivist at the Vatican , says
that the astronomers a d mathematic
ians bad predicted pestilence and dlro
calamities and the Pope ordered sup
plications to avert these and to divert
them to the Turks , who at that time
threatened to overwhelm Christen
dom. The ringing of bells was ord
ered not to affright the comet but to
remind the faithful" to pray in behalf
of those who were In mortal combat
with the Turks.
There is nothing particularly extra
ordinary about their forebodings of
disaster. Nearly four hundred years
later , in 1S3B , the French government
called upon her ablest astronomers
and mathematicians to determine , on
mathematical principles ? , bow man >
chances of collision there would be
between tha earth and comat at the
return that year , and they reported
there was Just one chance in 281,000-
000. And now , today , the scientists
of the world profoundly learned In
physics and astrophysics are speculat
ing on what the consequences will be
If the earth shall pass through the

years. It failed to appear the three
following periods. On November 27 ,
1872 , them was an extraordinary
meteoric shower throughout Kuropo.

of radiation which was low and vanish
Ing. lie conjectured there was con
nection between the meteors and Bio-
la's comet , It being the year of its
period , and telegraphed an nstronom-
ro friend at Madron : "Blcla touched
earth November 27. Search for him
near Tbeta Centaur ! . " The Madras
astronomer found the comet In the
star group named and easily Identified
it but it was tailless.
llorscbell says that Lcxcll's comet ,
with a period of live years , got tangl
ed in the moons of Jupiter and was
never afterwards seen. Astronomers
today believe that Jupiter's eighth
moon is the lost Lcxcll comet.

On its return this year It was dls-

ans bad computed Us position. At

after this event , and then will appear
n the evening sky , and slowly vanlsh-

of miles beyond the orbit of Neptune ,

Mistar , and notice nestling closely to

Alcor. You may have to look sharply
to see it , for the ancient Arabians ac
counted it a test of eyesight to dis
cover It. Richard A. Proctor says
that the distance separating those
stars Is so great that the orbit of the
great comet of 1811 would only span
one-fourth of It. The comet of 1811
had nn orbit six times as great as
Ilalley's comet. This means that you
could place twenty-four JIalley comet
orbits end to end and bavo a chain
barely long enough to connect these
two ntars. The orbit of Halley's
comet is betwvn thirty-five and forty
thousand millions of miles.

TINY BABY'S PITIFUL CASE
"Our baby when two mouths old
was Buffering with terrible eczema
from head to foot , all over her body.
The baby looked just like a skinned
labbit. Wo wore uuablo to put clothes
on her. At first it seemed to bo a few
mattered pimples. They would break
the skin and peel off leaving the un
dcrncath skin red as though it were
scaldB. Then a few inoro pimples
would appear and spread all over the
body , leaving the baby all raw wlthou
skin from head to foot. On top of her
head there appeared a heavy scab a
quarter of an Inch thick. It was aw
ful to see so small a baby look as she
did. Imagine ! The doctor was afraid
to put his hands to the child. "VVo
tried several doctors' remedies but all
"Then wo decided to try Cutlcura.
By using the Cuticura Ointment wo
softened the scab and it came off. Un
der this , where the real matter was ,
by washing with the Cuticura Soap
nnd applying the Cuticura Ointment ,
a new skin soon appeared. Wo also
gave baby four drops of the Cuticura
Resolvent three times dally. After
three days you could ECO the baby
gaining a little skin which would peel
oft and heal underneath. Now the
baby is four months old. She is a flno
picture of a fat little baby and nil io
well. Wo only used ono cake of Cuti
cura Soap , two boxes of Cuticura Oint
ment and ono bottle of Cuticura Re
solvent. If people would know what
Cuticura is there would bo few suffer
