Indiana Senator Who 13 In Charge of
the Fairbanks Boom
When Charles W Fairbanks was
elected vice president of the United
States and vacated his seat as a sena
tor from Indiana James A Hemen
way at that time a congressman was
chosen to fill it Mr Hemenway has
long been a close friend of the vice
president and he is now in charge of
the interests of the latter in respect to
the Republican nomination for presi
dent His career is an illustration of
what ambition and perseverance may
do for even a young man who starts
life seemingly with few advantages
Mr Hemenway was born on a farm
near Boonville Ind in 1SG0 and he
has made his way up from poverty by
his own efforts entirely One day
about two years ago Senator
way and Governor Hanly of Indiana
made speeches In Evansville Across
the street from the building where
they spoke was the livery stable where
the senator had once worked as a hos
tler In front of the building was the
main of a gas company and when the
main was laid Governor Hanly dug in
the ditch for 75 cents a day Senator
Hemenway once lived in a dugout in
Kansas and when nothing else was
doing he would gather up the bones of
buffaloes and haul them to Atchison
for sale as fertilizer The senator was
once telling of an incident in connec
tion with a campaign in which he par
ticipated In one town it was ar
ranged that when the big orators of
the day had had their say with refer
ence to politics there were to be a
number of side shows
A pompous politician who had served
a term in the state legislature and was
by reason of that fact on extremely
good terms with himself while en
deavoring with a number of ladies to
make his way through a dense crowd
that surrounded one of the shows
found himself unable to proceed far
ther because of a burly individual
whom he could not thrust aside Draw
ing himself up to his full height the
politician tapped the offending one on
the shoulder sayiug as he did so
Here Make way there
Who are you that you should push
me round that way demanded the
A representative of the people sir
exclaimed the politician indignantly
The man grinned Oh that aint
nothin said he We folks here air

New Theory Advanced by Young Man Is
Spreading Over Entire Country
L T Coopers theory concerning the
human stomach which he claims to
prove with his new medicine is being
given more respect and comment every
Cooper claims that 90 per cent of
all ill health is due to stomach trouble
When interviewed about his theory re
cently he said Stomach trouble is
the great curse of the 20th century
so far as the civilized races are con
cerned Practically all of the chronic
ill health of this generation is caused
by abnormal stomachic conditions In
earlier days when the human race was
closer to nature and men and women
worked all day out of doors digging
their frugal existence from the soil
the tired droopy half sick people that
are now so common did not exist
To be sure there was sickness in
those days but it was of a virulent
character and only temporary There
was none of this half sick condition
all the time with which so many are
afflicted nowadays
I know positively that every bit of
this chronic ill health is caused by
stomach trouble The human stomach
in civilized people today is degenerate
It lacks tone and strength This weak
ness has gradually come through a
sedentary existence I further know
that few people can be sick with the
digestive apparatus in perfect shape
vThe sole reason for my success is be 1
cause my New Discovery medicine
tones the stomach up to required
strength in about six weeks time
That is why I have had more people
come and thank me wherever I have
gone to introduce my medicine than I
have had time to talk with
Among the immense numbers of peo
ple who are now strong believers in
Coopers theory and medicine is Irs
M E Delano a prominent resident of
the suburb of Brookline Boston Mass
She says For several years I was
broken in health caused primarily by
stomach and nerve troubles I gradu
ally became worse until recently I was
compelled to go without solid food for
days at a time I had sour stomach
palpitation of the nerves of stomach
and heart dyspepsia and extreme ner
vousness I suffered terribly with in
somnia and my liver bowels and
whole system gradually became de
ranged I felt instant relief the first
day I began this Cooper medicine
I now feel like a new being Today
I walked all over town shopping
something I have not done for years
I mako this statement wholly froi
a sense of duty I feel I owe it to
anyone who might find relief and
renewed happiness as I have done
The record made by the Cooper med
icines is astonishing We will take
pleasure in discussing it with anyone
who wishes to know about then
