HOW "HOODOO DOCTOR" TREATS
Negro People Meetly Are Firm Believ
ers In His Power to Save from
Effects ef Being Con-
Other doctors may cure you If you
are 'stricken with some disease, but
there Is only one doctor who crn cure
you if you are really "hoodooed."
The "hoodoo doctor" is a tall, gaunt
and cadaverous looking negro with a
wealth of long wavy hair, and he Uvea
in the West side, says the Kansas City
Star. He Is a familiar figure on the
atreeta of both cities, and invariably
carries a little black hand satchel.
The hoodoo doctor la held in awe by
nine-tenths of the negro population
and his aervicea are in demand by the
people of his race.
"Ton may laugh at us for believing

woman, 'bat what is the difference be

The negro people, or at least a great
majority of them, are firm believers in
the power of the evil spirit and go so

Once a negro has been hoodooed he
is apt to have a recurrent attack at
any time, alwaya being more or less
susceptible to the wicked conjurer.
Thus is the hoodoo doctor in such
great demand. ,
"People can be hoodooed In different
ways," said the hoodoo doctor. They
can be 'fixed' so they can amount to
anything or have any success in busi
ness or love or be able to keep in fair
ly good health, and they Just got to

the matter with lota of the white folks'
failures, only they think they are too
smart to bother with the hoodoo doctor."

The Hindoo places a clock fat his

clock la a foreign curiosity. Instead,
therefore of contenting himself with
one good clock, he wUl have, perhaps,
