Hardly a day passes that we do not re.
celva on or mora letters from patients
who are congratulating themselves and
us on thefr new TEETH. A lady recently
wrote In and told us that her teeth were
so natural looking and beautiful that they
has rejuvlnated he'r face. Her friends and
those who did not know her ao well were
completely mystified at tha wonderful
change In her looks. '
One of the prime factors In Dr. Murphy's
METHOD of restoring missing, teeth Is that
each tooth Is set In Its own socket, thus
carrying out nature's plan of supplying
teeh In the first place. These teeth are
not only natural looking, but they may
be used In exactly the same way that one
can use nature's teeth: We wish to' Im
press once more upon our readers that In
supplying these teeth we preform no sur
gical operation and do not bore or cut Into
the gums. The very strength of the method
lies In Its simplicity and In its conformity
with natural laws.
With a great many people, looks come
first, but If these teeth almply looked
beautiful they would not be the success
that they are useless they were also prac
tical. Another thing, we wish to empha
size is that this Is not an expensive piece
of work, considering tha fact that when
it la completed the patient has to all
lntenta and purposes a complete new aet
of teeth that are Just as serviceable aa if
they had grown In the mouth.
We hope that we have said enough to
cause you to come and eee what we can
do for you If your teeth need attention
or If they are loose or missing. We will
make a thorough and careful diagnosis of
your case without any cost or obligation
to you. In that way we will be able to
tell you exactly what we can do tjr you
and what the cost will be. If you live
too far away to come and see us now, do
the next best thing and send for our free
book. Beware of Imitations.

"Fish have a great many fine traits about
them." remarked the veracious and eru

was talking on that . subject with some
friends . one day during tha last week.
"You would hardly suppose," he continued,
"that a fish la fond of music, but he Is,
all tha same, and I myself have had per
sonal observation of the fact, and of all
the fish that swim, these taylors, that herd
by the thousands in the lower Potomac
and In - all the rivers about the eastern
shore of Virginia, take the cake. They
like fin operatic music at that, and none
of thla ragtime atuff you can hear a

and if there Is any better fish anywhera

those boys and girls.

No danger lurks In the path of No. 16.
Two drivers perch on the same bench In
the locomotive's cab and guide lta destiny.
One Is Horace L. Beaver, veteran engineer
and ht?ro of numerous hairbreadth escapes;
the other .s the ghost of a man that was.
t'reon, unheard, the specter haa been
at the throttle for years, guiding and
guarding the Uvea of those sleeping In the
darkened coaches behind.
No. 15 la the Big Four fast express which
runs Into Chicago over the Illinois Central
tracks from Kankakee. The train Is pulled
by an Illinois Central locomotive, of which
Mr. Beaver la the engineer. , For forty
three yeara the veteran haa been handling
tha throttle of Illinois Central engines.
For forty-three yeara Mr. Beaver has been
a spiritualist, not one of the table-raising,
bell-ringing kind, bu: an Intelligent believer
that spirit bodies exist. He says he haa
had Innumerable evidences that a spirit
hand guided hla engine through fearful
dangers and happy escapes. Whenever he
climbs up In hla cab he knows that the
spectral engineer Is Bitting beside him,
ready to extend the hand of warning In
time of need.
Mr. Beaver was In the cub, gating far
out along tli track one dark night, won

make before hla good spirit deserted Mm.
In the train were more than 1,00 old sol
diers going to a reunion at Champaign,

and the speed more than sixty miles an
hour. Suddenly the engineer leard a soft
voice whispering In his ear:
"The bridge Is burned; the bridge Is
burned." ,

coaches 1,000 old soldiers were sleeping.
The conductor hurried forward to the en
gine. "What do you mean by stopping this
train out here," he demanded, angrily.
"You would better go along the track
and find out," said the engineer, quietly.
Only a few feet ahead of the engine was
the river and over the river hung the
charred remnants of the big bridge, which
had burned only a short time before. The
1,000 veterans were saved.
This happened In IPSO and Mr. 8?aver

"But it wasn't me that did It," said the
engineer, modestly. "It was aomething un

anything about. I did not deserve any
credit at all, I just heeded the warning
that waa given me. There are numerous

Hot Water at Thermopolls.
THERMOPOI.I8. Wyo., April SS (Spe
cial.) An important discovery waa matlo
a few days ago when C. W. Harold, whlln
sinking a well for water for drinking
purposes, encountered a strong flow of
hot water similar to that In the Big Horn
hot aprlngs. The water raised to. a height
of thirty feet in tha 103-foot well and.
although no chemical analysis haa been
made, the water la known to be Im
pregnated with the same mineral sub
stances that are found in the hot spring
The striking of this flow of hot water
Indicates that the entire town la situated
over a lake of boiling water, 'and 'at email
expense every family in the place can
enjoy medicinal hot water baths. Should
other wella tap a similar flow then Ther
mopolla wl'l at once become more famous,
for capitalists will be able to establish
resorts, bath houses, etc., to accommo
date thousands of people who are seek
ing benefits through bathing in medicinal
waters. The watera of the Big Horn hot
springa now cure the most obstinate
