K"0'1 rcvH 10 solicitors nnd divide rich I
iTO""r) rewarus mat are urougnt to
him by what he describes ns his "world
Recently n young man called upon the
"doctor" nt his home and office on North
Twentieth street. He didn't look a bit
sick, but the doctor hnd no way of know
ing thnt the young mad did not have a
cancer, wfirt. wen or other growth con
cealed somewhere about bis person and
the visitor was affably greeted. The
"doctor" Is a clever operator. It must
be admitted, and doubtless could achieve
no Inconsiderable success If he should
devote his talents to some legitimate busi
ness, though ho might have to perform
more nctual work than painting suspicion
looking growths with mysterious looking !
bluck lliiuld. i
Wliiil the "Dtivtor" lloes. !
The young man explained that he was I
not nt deaths toor and had not been
"given up" by any refutable physicians
or surgeons. According to the "doctor's"
literature, he has performed many cures
"after the patients hnve been treated
unsuccessfully by eminent physlelnns and
have been operated upon by them with
tho knife, often tho second time.". The
doctor offeres no proof of this, but then,
people, who have been driven to despera
tion by disease arc not Inclined to bo
Insistent for proofs' when hope of nny
kind Is held out to them.
At nny rate, the visitor did not pro-
pose to be added to tho fictitious horde
of mythical suffers snatchert from li.
fore tjic keen sickle of tho grim reaper.
He cpnfesscd. to the "doctor" thqt he
had seen the "doctor's" ndvertlse'ments
In newspaper, and thought that perhaps
he and the "doctor" might "do business
together," to mutual financial advantage.
Solicitors Are Ilniidy,
He Informed tho "doctor" that he had
been employed ns nn ngent for tho ex
ploiters of a fake "cure-all" In the form
of an electric vibrator until those faklrn
had been exposed by Tho Omaha Bee and
dlven out of business In Omaha. Ho told
the "doctor" he knew the vibrator was
a fako and lacked all the curntlve vir
tues claimed for It.
This seemed to Impress the "doctor."
who made evident his appreciation of .the
value of services, such a young man
might be oble to render him.
"Doctor" Hornby said ho never before
had employed solicitors regularly to get
business for him. but It would be a good
scheme. Bo fore tho Interview was ter
minated the "doctor" urged tho young
man to go out and "get busijiess" and
handed him xeveral pamplets to aid him
In this noble work as a, public bene
factor. Instruction Are Simple.
The "doctor" said in part:
"I charge whatever tho patient can pay.
You don't havo to find out If they have
a scancer. I can cure any kind of a
growth except a cancer that Is too far
gone, and they can't tell whether It Is
cancer or not. For good cases, say from
1100 up, I will pay you 2C per ceht of
what I get out of them. That Is the
kind I am after. I don't care much for
the Uttlo cases, hut when thoy come to
me I taek them, nnd If a man hasn't got
anything I cure him for nothing. On the
little ctustal will give you 10 per cent of
what I egt.
"I don't see why you j:ouldn'tpBt some
business for me. It Is easy when yon
find a pcraon that lias got something
wrong with them, I gave, a man JSO Just
the other day for getting me a good
case. It required no work at all, Just
a few minutes' talking. There are plenty
of peoplo who have cancer or something
like It and have plenty of money and are
able to pay well. I got $1,500 for one
case not long ago."
Dlxpiite Between "Doctor."
The visitor noted In one of the pamh
lets a purported testimonial from Dr.
Myrta A. Wells, physician, surgeon and
osteopath. He asked "Doctor" Hornby
If It was not unusual for a physician and
suregon to arrove of his work, even in
tho rather "left-handed" stylo employed
by Dr, Wells. He said It was, but he
had convinced Dr. Wells of his nbl A
patient had tried to employ him nnd Dr.
Wells at the same time and a dispute
between the two doctors had arisen.
"Doctor" Hornby said he had Insisted
that the patient require either him or
Dr. Welia to "step out." Dr. Wells was
required to withdraw and he effected a
cure, 'he said. Since then "Boctor"
Hornby asserted, Dr. Wells has had
faith In his mervclous power.
On the following day the young man
called upon Dr. Wells for Information re
garding "Doctor" Hornby, 'AVhlle he was
discussing the cancer "specialist" with
Dr. "Wells. "Doctor" Hornby came in for
a talk with the women physician and
