Cooper relative to the human stomach
has attracted such widespread atten
tion that the public la cities visited by
the young; man has been joined by
many physicians in a discussion of his
beliefs and medicines.
Mr. Cooper says human health Is
dependent almost entirely upon the
stomach. He says, that no disease can
be conquered without first alleviating
all stomach disorders. He further says
that most men and women of this gen
eration are half-sick owing to degen

that his New Discovery medicine will

Cooper has been traveling from one
city to another, conducting in each
what he calls a campaign of educa

the public ic the larger cities of the
country, and his success has been
phenomenal. Thousands of people have
flocked to his headquarters wherever
he has gone, and the sale of his medi
cine has been beyond anything of the
kind ever before witnessed.
Possibly the most interesting fea
ture of the attention this young man
has attracted is what his army of
followers, whom he has converted to
his beliefs through his medicines, have
to say on the subject The following
statements are from two well-known
residents of Chicago and Boston, re

these is characteristic of Cooper's ad

and what little solid food I did eat I

NEWS FlioM THE CAPITAL CITY
Items of Interest Around the State
Riots at South Omaha Expensive
Documents filed by Secretary ot
State Knox with Governor Shallenber
ger indicate that the state of Nebras
ka will have to pay damages amount
ing to 1247.954.99 on account of the
anti-Greek riot at South Omaha Feb
ruary 21. 1909. The meeting was held,
following the shooting and killing of
Policeman Edward Lowry by a Greek
named John Masourldes who was be
ing placed under arrest by the officer.
The secretary of state has asked Gov
ernor Shallenberger what he has to
say about the claims. The governor
will refer the matter to Attorney Gen
eral Thompson. It Is the policy of tho
federal government not to pay claims
of other countries on account of dam
ages to life and property of foreigners
committed in any of the states, but to
ask the states to make good whatever
damage has been inflicted. This was
the attitude of the general govern
ment when Chinese were damaged in
Wyoming. Governor Shallenberger
niay have to recommend that the next
legislature pay the claims represented
by Austria-Hungarians. Turks and
Greeks who were damaged by the
riots in South Omaha. If the s.ate
has the pay the claims presented, it
will be an expensive riot The various
foreign governments interested In the
claims allege that the riot continued
for nine hours and no attempt was
made to call out the state troops for
protection. The statement is made
that laboring men incited the riot, be
lieving they had a grievance because
of the foreign-born workingmen who
were worked in the South Omaha
packing houses for lower wages than
American-born men would work for.
