WHO ARE THEUMED DOCTORS?
Some Information About the Specialists who
Will be in Columbus on Wednesday, March
16th, and Thursday, March 17th.
Since the announcement has been
made in these columns, that the Chief
Consulting Physician of the United
Doctors, who have their permanent Ne
braska institute located on the second
floor of the Neville Block, corner 16th
and Harney Streets. Omaha, Nebraska,
would pay a short visit to the Thurston
Hotel, at Columbus, the question has
been asked many times : Who are the
United Doctors and what do they do?
The answer is this:
The United Doctors, as the name im
plies, is an association of expert medical
specialists who have united to organize
a new school of medicine; a new and
more scientific and positive system of
curing human ailments. For centuries
the world has been full of different
"cults" and "isms" of medicine. We had
the old root and herb doctor with his
bitter iotione; the Allopathic with cal
omel and quinine in heroic doses; the
Electric without his calomel; the Oatoe-
path and the Christian Scientist. We
were doctored by heat, by electricity, by
baths at the Hot Springs and by a multi
tude of men and methods. Some of the
patients were cured, some died who
should have been cured. It was impos
sible for the ordinary person to say
which method of treating diseases was
the best, and the physicians of the var
ious schools were so biased that they
could see good only in their own method;
all others were, necessarily, bad.
Evidently there is good in all of them
for they all cured some cases. Also there
is bad in all for they all failed at
times and allowed misery to remain or
death to come when a cure should have
A tremendous stride forward was
made, when the association of the United
Doctors was formed. The founders of
this association consisted of eminent
specialists from the various schools of
practice. Eclectics. Homoeopaths, Allo
path, Regulars and Irregulars, met and
agreed to drop their prejudices and form
a new system of treatment, which would
embrace all the good points of the old
methods and leave out the bad. The re
sults of the efforts of these world-famous
specialists, of the various schools, was
the wonderful treatment now being used
by the United Doctors. All of this was
not accomplished in a day or two, but
has taken years of patient work by those
specialists in their great institutions in
the east; Homoeopath, Eclectics, Allo
paths, all working side by Bide, each
throwing away his old idea when he was
convinced there was something better,
until at last, out of the old chaos and
confusion, came the new and perfect
system, as it is now used by the United
The cost of these specialists was great
not only in the labor of forming the new
system of treatment, but also in the ef
fort it cost them to ignore their prejudi
ces in favor of various schools in which
they were originally educated. But their
record has lieen great in health and
happiness restored to hundred and thou
sands who were going to their graves in
misery, pronounced incurable by old
This wonderful new system of medicine
has cured thousands of cases of chronic
diseases of the liver, kidneys, skin, heart
lungs, bowels and stomach, including
rheumatism, paralysis, neuralgia, ap
pendicitis, gall stones, piles, goiter,
rupture, diseases of women and diseases
of men. which had been pronounced in
curablo by other doctors.

Several drinks of bootleg booze made
trouble for Henry Nelson, a resident of
Prairie Creek. Some men, when under
the inlluence of John Barleycorn, per
form foolish stunts. Henry has such a
reputation. The other day, when he
was feeling extremely cute, he bet Rosco
Brown, a neighbor, that he dare go to
the home of Ora Hill and ask Mre. Hill
to take a buggy ride with him. Brown
accompanied Nelson to the Hill home to j
see mat ne compiieu wim we require
ments of the bet. The invitation was
extended to the lady all right and in
dignantly declined, but Henry won bis
friend's money by 1 he exhibition of his
gall and imagined that the incident was
closed; but it wasn't. Last Sunday
morning, shortly after midnight, Nelson
himself received an invitation to take a
buggy ride, and although a blizzard was
raging at the time, he thought it best,
under the circumstances, to comply with
the request. The invitation came from
Sheriff Chas E.- Peterson. Nelson was
taken to Fnllerton and placed in jail.

who have been cured by the United
Doctors at their various institutes

specialists have hundreds and thousands

file at their offices. Any one interested
in any particular disease can secure the
names of patients who were cured of
that disease by writing to the United
Doctors at their Omaha Institute. These

It is worse than useless to attempt to
cure constipation with cathartic drugs
Laxatives or cathartics do much harm.
They cause a reaction, irritate and weak

Constipation is caused by a weakness

Last Thursday the regular annual
meeting of the stockholders of the Mon
roe Independent Telephone company
was held in Monroe. A good attendan
ce of delegates were present and more
votes were represented, including pro
xies, than at any former meeting. All
the old directors, except one, were re-elected
for the coming year. The mem
bers of the board are as follows: . B.
Dannals, A. Bratt, Peter Schmidt, Wm.
Webster, O. E. Green, Oscar Olson and
Julias Hansen. 'There was some talk
abont separating the different exchanges
but when the meeting convened the
sentiment was overwhelmingly against
such a change and it was not mentioned.
The refiort of the auditing committee
was very gratifying, showing that the
indebtedness has been reduced to a little
over $4,000, and the financial condition
of the company better than at any time

D. H. Gipeand J. H. Huhus were the
delegates sent by the Monroe Commer
cial club to attend the meeting called at
Columbus by that Commercial club to
discuss the change in the time of the
trains on this branch. It developed that
the only grievance or change asked for
by the Spalding branch was that the
freight be run ou schedule time, the
present passenger service being salisfac
tory. On the other hand Albion is ask
ing for motor car, to leave there in time
to connect with the morning locnl from
Omaha, which leaves Columbus shortly
after 7 o'clock in the morning, and back
the same evening so they could have the
best part of the day in Omaha. The as
sembled clubs unanimously passed re
solutions endorsing tbe motor car ser
vice between Albion and Columbus,
asked for by Albion, and also regarding
tbe running of the freight on time.
Railroad officials were present, and talk
ed with the delegate?, and as there was
no conllicting requests it is probable
that they will establish motor car service
between Albion and Columbus and also
endeavor to have the freight train run
according to the time card.

Among the legends that have gath

one to the effect that he was in tho
habit of signifying to an office visitor,
by offering him a banana, that he de
sired to end the Interview. If the
banana was accepted and the call pro
longed Sir Alfred arose aud presented
his visitor with a fine flower from one
of the glass stands in his office. But,
supposing his visitor stayed after the
flower well, the legend continues.
Sir Alfred then offered a pass to the
West Indies ou one of his small steam
ers, with a free holiday for six weeks
at his hotel.
It Is told, however, that on one oc
casion Sir Alfred got tbe worst of the
banana trick. A young reporter called
