The trail of the black cat will be over the lead, and 890 of the tribe or Hoo Hoo Trill gather in Portland at tho ninth, hour of the ninth, day of tha ninth month of 1KB, to meet in annual convention for the pro motion of the lumber Interests of the Nation. Last week T. H. Claftey, G. 22. Xoulo and. P. J. Doinham, all of this city, left for St Louis to be present at the annual convention of the Concatenated Order of Hoo Hoo, where they expected to boom Portland as tho convention city of 1S05. The wishes of the lumbermen of the Northwest were made known to Governor Chamberlain, Mayor Williams, Senator Mitchell, the management of the Portland Board of Trade, Chamber of Commerce, Commercial Club, and the Lewis and Clark Board, and all sent long and earnest Invitations to the convention at St. Louis urging that Portland be made the next convention city. Yesterday afternoon J. -a- Clock, one of the faithful of this city, received a tele gram from Mr. Toule at St. Louis stating that Portland had won and that A. H. Potter, of this city, had been elected Jab berwock, which euphonious cognomen car ries with. It the highest honors of the order of the black cat. Mr. Potter is the manager of the EL C. Atkins Saw Com pany, of this city. The Concatenated Order of Hoo Hoo is a secret organization of the lumbermen of the country, with whom are associated the railroad men who come into contact with the lumber business and all trades men who are associated in a general way "with the lumbering industry. The order has as its emblem a large black cat with its tail curled above its back in the form of the number "9," tho snyetio number of the order. The Hoo Hoo meets on the ninth day of the ninth month and. at the ninth hour. Their mem berships are issued in series of nines, and. when 999 is reached a new 6erle3 is adopted. Tha membership of the order spreads lover tho entire United States wherever thero Is timber enough to givo a lumber man a foothold. At the St. Louis convention thero were more than 2000 of tho repre sentative lumbermen of the country in at tend at ct The visit to Portland of bo many of the men interested in the harvesting of timber Is looked forward to with interest, as the resources of this district are comparative ly unknown to a great many of the men of the Bast. It is expected that at least 2000 of the members of tie order will attend the con vention here, which will convene on Sep tember 9, 1905. at 9 o'clock in the morning. The order had a Hoo Hoo building at the St. Louis Exposition, and an effort Is being made by the "Western membership to have it duplicated at the Lewis and Clark Fair. BABOHEFS S02T A FUGITIVE.

She is a handsome young f woman, sister to Xatherine TJrlau, an ac tress in David Belasco's "Darling of the Gods" Company. Herrick's father is Sir "William Herrick, of Derbyshire, En land. Death of Mrs. Elizabeth H. Ross. Last Friday Mrs. Elizabeth Hopwood Ross, widow of the late General John E. Ross, died at her home in Jacksonville, after a prolonged Illness. Mrs. Boss was born in Pennsylvania on August IB, 1S30, and came across the plains to Oregon with her parents in 1851, arriving at Portland in October of that year. After spending the "Winter in this city the family re moved to Jacksonville early In 1852. Gen eral and Mrs. Boss were married In Jack sonville January 7, 3853, and they were probably the first white couple married there. Their first child, Mrs. Mary Louise Ross-Stanley, born October S, 1S54, is, so far as known, the first white female born in Jacksonville. Mrs. Ross wa3 the mother of 10 children, nine of whom sur vive her. General Ross, as it may be remembered, came to Oregon from Illinois in 1847, and served in the Cayuse "War in 1S4S under Captain H.

A man from a country town who was pricing pianos at a dealer's yesterday re marked that he had so much, trouble with the teachers wno naa instructea his chll dren in music, owing to their hasty tern pers and overbearing manners, that he had almost concluded to "cut out" the piano. A friend who was assisting him in selecting an Instrument remarked "Music hath charms to soothe a savage. rend a rock or split a cabbage," but his experience had shown him that teachers it EMuia T$ra c:tga np-eiy, auic&um f tt&jMjJ&te&va.t ovsr tfVjl&c tht Unitad states. fles. He said -that when a boy in Ger many he took lessons on the violin, and gave evidence of possessing some musical talent, but owing to being banged over the head by his irascible old master with the bow or the violin indiscriminately when ho mado an error, ho gave up taking les sons. After he had been in Portland a number of years and had married, his wife wished to take lessons on the piano and coaxed him to do the same. They were living at that time in a cottage on the hillside at the head of, Montgomery street reached by climbing 47 steps of a stairway. A teacher was procured, a middle-aged German, who gave his wife a lesson of an hour before dinner in the evening, and after taking dinner with them gave him a lesson, thus earning and his dinner daily, which he considered a soft snap. Things wont along smoothly for some time, but trouble was brewing. Slnco he came to America the man of the houso had learned to play baseball, and had a crooked little finger as a tro phy. One day as he was playing "Home, Sweet Home" his baseball finger struck two keys at once. The teacher fiew into a passion and svroro ,at him in tho highest kind of High Dutch. He under stood the meaning of tho expletives and lost his temper and told the teacher he was not paid for this sort of thing, and for him to get out at once or ho would bo kicked out, and tho teacher fairly flew down the 47 steps, touching only about one in 10. It was .months before the Instructor showed up to collect hla bill, and by this time another teacher had been secured, who had a baseball finger himself and could keep his temper. CALEFOSNIA WOODS AFIRE. immense Damage Done In Different Parts of the State SAN FRANCISCO, CaL, Sept. 10. A defi nite report from the scene of the forest fire raging in the Big Basin Park in Santa Cruz County states that the fire has been checked within a quarter of a mile of the Governor's camp, and- it Is thought tho danger of tho entire destruction of the reservation is now past. The situation at Boulder Creek has Improved, the wind shifting the blaze and driving the firo toward tho coast. All danger to the town is not over, however, as tho water supply is said to be precarious and tho force of fighters is worn out after their 60 hours' labors in other sections of the mountains. About 1500 feet of the Southern Pacific Company's snowsheds near Blue Canyon in the Sierras were destroyed by yester day's fire. A largo force of men worked ah night repairing the track, and at 6 o'clock this morning had the work com pleted so that tho delayed passenger trains began to move. Freight traffic was also resumed. The fire destroyed the tele graph wires, but theso already have been restored. Forest fires are also raging In the moun tains, and have threatened the sheds in several places, but the fire trains have been kept in readiness to meet any emer gency. Extensive forest fires are now rav aging many of the principal timber sections in the northern districts of California and in the immediate vicin ity of this city. According to the latest reports, four great fires are now raging. sweeping through the Big Basin of Red wood County, in the Santa Cruz Moun tains, and over the borders of "Mendocino and Lake Counties, devastating the moun tains of Marin County and also the um bered slopes of the foothills in Contra Costa County and Alameda County. In the Santa Cruz Mountains the sit uation is serious in the extreme, and it is believed at present that the state park in tho Big Basin, which contains some of the finest redwood timber in the state, is doomed. Owing to the beauty and size of the trees in this park, some of which are 200 feet high and from 30 to 40 feet in girth, this forest was preserved intact, only to disappear, as it Is now feared, in flames. Down tho mountains to the coast line, the flames are now sweeping ev erything before them ranches and prop erty of all kinds, and it is only hoped that the conflagration may not extend to the City of Santa Cms. The firo in Marin County is now checked, it is believed, after devastating an area of 14,000 acres. Many buildings have been destroyed, and for a time the slopes of Tamalpals were threatened. An army of men has been engaged for hours past in fighting the flames, which have swept a stretch of country ten miles long and Tanging from one to five miles wide, taking in all of the dividing hills between Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, leav ing in their wake a smoldering pile of ruins. Farmhouses and barns have been wiped out in all directions, and the feed for numerous herds of cattle has all been destroyed. From Tehama. Butte and other points up north come reports of loss by flames, which have swept the mountains. In Monterey County, south of here, over 10,- 000 acres of pasturage have been destroyed and several stock ranches have suffered heavily by the loss of cattle. So far no loss of human life has been reported, but it is rearea that in many instances it must have been Impossible lor people to escape.. NOT A FAVOBED CBEDITOB.

Port Arthur and Llao Yang may hold tho eyes of all the world just now, but who remembers the name of the battle which rolled back the hordes of Attila, the Hun, or tho number of those whom Alexander slew to 4 win Persia? "If tho Japs should succeed in organ izing tho Chinese and enlist their aid against Russia, it's gpod-bye white man In the Orient" Paul Cowles It was that said so at the Hotel Portland on Friday night, and- as the execiititve of the Associated Press Mr. Cowles has been traveling through the war-stricken countries of the Far East since February last: He returned a few days ago on the big liner Mongolia, To his mind the 'transient successes and dis asters of the warring armies are of less Importance than the fact that the squab ble of two nations may mark an epoch In world-history. It is not only, says Mr. Cowles, that Japan and Russia are fight ing, but that the Slav and the Mongolian ore locked in what may be a death grap ple, while the Caucasian, stronger now than either, and supercilious, may have to reckon with tho winner in years to come. I had asked Mr. Cowles with which side his sympathies lay, and he had said that as the representative of the Associated Press he was a neutral and had no dis cernible feelings in tho matter. v Poor Outlook for America. "Americans and Europeans say," he continued, "that if Russia. wins there will bo little chance for us to trade in Asia. They say (Russia will restrict foreign com merce, foster her own industries, and adopt a policy of Russian possessions for the Russians. All of this may be true. "To- tho forgetful I would point out, on tho other hand, that should Japan win sho will welcome foreign trade to Asia with an engaging smile and an open door and will then proceed to make it impos sible for the foreigners to sell anything except raw material, wheat and cotton and pig iron. Japan will establish facto ries to make everything we have to sell. "With her unlimited cheap labor, she will be ablo to undersell any American or Eu ropean firm In any line. She may have to buy tho raw material from America or Europe, but I cannot see that her su premacy in the Orient is much more to be desired, from an American commercial standpoint, than that of Russia." Mr. Cowles thinks the chance of China being drawn into the war is remote, but were such a thing to happen he believes it would be a real menace to the Caucasian and to the Slav. It might mark the return to power of the Mongol, who for thou sands of years has surrendered tho scep ter or tne world to others and slumbered wrapped in poppy dreams of by-gone glo ries. "I do not think. China will become act ively involved in the war." said Mr. Cowles. "Japan is trying, naturally, to arouse the Chinese against the Russians, Dut witn little apparent success. China firmly believes that she is the superior of any nation, and doesn't have to fight." Plans Made Months Ahead.

"White Is now being held at Van couver, awaiting the arrival ot an officer from Logan, O., -where ha will bo taken for forgery com mitted on the Bowery National Bank of New York City, by means of a bogus check for $S5, on Feb ruary 25. 1004. On behalf of the American Bank ers' Association. Plnkertoa'a Na tional Detective Agency has for eome time past been endeavoring to effect the arrest of White. On Sep tember 6 the local office of the Plnkerton's National Detective Agency received advices from their Kansas City office that "White, un der the name of "Waldo, had left Colby, Kan., a few days previous en route for Portland, Or., and re quested that he be located and placed under arrest for forgery on the Mollne State Bank.

Prior to "Waldo's arrest on the I,ogan charge the Kansas authorities were preparing to come forward to Vancouver for him with requisition on the Mollne forgery.

This meant that if an ap peal was taken by either side it must be on tho $10,000 verdict The parties recent ly got together. Heryford agreed to pay, and Miss McCarty agreed to take, so a settlement was arrived at. Miss McCarty came from her home in Michigan and taught school In tho dis trict where Heryford resides. He is a large land and cattle-owner. Is Interested In the local bank, and was one of the School Directors of the school over which Miss McCarty presided. He is a wid ower, 5 years old. They were thrown Jmuch torethtr, and he became, enamored the war that Mr. Cowles was sent last "Winter from San Francisco to take execu tive charge of tho Associated Press inter ests in tho East. Months before, Melville B. Stone, the general manager, scenting the present trouble, had visited St. Peters burg to arrange for the gathering of news at this point. To invade the Russian cap ital, where legend said was the homo of secrecy, the Paradise' of the censor, the original source of red tape, was certainly bearding the lion in his den, but Mr. Stone mado a rather startling success of it. Before his arrival ir4.St Petersburg the news obtained from Russian sources was fragmentary and unreliable. The censor ship was painfully rigorous. The corre spondents had no access to the depart ments of the government, they were frowned upon by the officials, and the service generally was unsatisfactory. r Backed by powerful Interests in Amer ica, Mr. Stone obtained an extended au dience with tho Czar himself, and, to put It briefly, tho result was that the As sociated Press agreed to open" a perma nent press bureau in St. Petersburg on condition that -the Government depart ments should bo open to the correspond ents, that the censorship should be abol ished, that the telegraph company should grant the association a reduced rate, and that all dispatches should be expedited, instead of being subjected to long delays as formerly. Van Plehve, the Russian Minister who was recently assassinated, opposed these innovations, but after some time the con cessions asked by Mr. Stone, were granted. Results Have Been Astonishing. "The result has been astonishing," sald-f Mr,. Cowles. "When we remember the reputation of Russia in the public mind for secrecy and evasion, the ample news reports which we are receiving from St. Petersburg are Impressive. The Russians are demonstrating indirectly that they aire not such a dreadful people. Com pared with the Japanese" At this point Mr. Cowles' feelings over came him, but after being remonstrated with he calmed himself and proceeded to talk again In ordinary English. "Of course," he continued, "Japan Is not to be blamed in a way for her ex tremely polite and point-blank refusal to give out any news or to allow the cor respondents to gather It themselves. Japan takes tho position that this war is vital to her, that her national existence depends on ltd outcome, and she proposes to take no chances. She. is going to run this war without the assistance of tho newspapers, and so far she has certainly done It very well." A question as to tho myriad correspond ents who sailed with bosoms swelled with ambition and- never got any nearer tho war than Tokio, raised the storm signal again in the smooth face of Mr. Cowles. "Those correspondents," said he, "have got a legitimate kick coming. They are not Idiots, and they were certainly treat ed as though they were lacking in com mon sense. Perhaps they had no right to expect to go to the war. Certainly the Japanese had a right not to take them. But It was scarcely right to tell the cor respondents that in a few days they might reave for tho front and then to politely and smilingly postpone the de parture a week at a time for six long months. They might have been told the sad, sad" fact at the beginning, and then they could have returned home." Almost Perfect Secrecy. According to Mr. Cowles, however, but little news could be obtained at Toldo, even if the censorship were not so strict. The Japanese have in this war carried secrecy to suchxa degree that even the of her and proposed. She thought It was a good match, and took him at his word. Subsequently sho went East on a visit, and while she was away he broke the en gagement, telling her ho had ceased to love her. She expostulated, saying she had informed her friends and relatives ol her coming marriage, and was humili ated. Finally the damage suit came. Tha plaintiff is fair to look upon, intelligent, and about SO years old. 02ST TRAIL OF IIUEDEBEB, Police Expect to Make Arrest In Cass of Chinese Doctor at Once. Though no arrests were made last night, detectives who are working to find the murderer of Dr. Lee Sing Nom are hot on the trail, know the party who com mitted the assault, are acquainted with the manner in which tho assault occurred, and are waiting only to secure further damaging evidence before taking the guilty party into custody. All day yes terday and all night last night the detec tives were working incessantly. They have orders to stop at nothing until the J. E. Waldo, Alias Ed C. Carr. man who committed the assault is safe behind the bars in the City Jail. The latest eye-witness to come forward, and who placed In the hands of a de tective important clues, has given great aid to the officers and is still helping them to bring the murderer to Justice. New Faces In Suburban Schools. Professor L. H. Baker, principal of the "Woodstock School, is a new man in this county. He was principal of the Lincoln building In Salem for four years. Before coming to Balem he was Superintendent of Schools in Yamhill County, and taught four years in Albany. J, M. C. Mlllor, who wmN principal ot "Woodstock School, counsellors of the Emperor do not know much about anything except the matters in their Immediate charge. "They say in Tokio," said Mr. Cowles. "that, at a meeting of the war cabinet each member was asked to write out on a piece of paper his advico regarding a certain plan. "When this was done all the slips were handed to the president of the council, who after reading the sllp3 burned them all without comment. Thus only one man knew what the vote was. Another story will illustrate the secrecy of the Japanese. Before the armies were sent into Corea the troops at Tokio were drilled daily. About the time of the em barkation an order would be given for aay 10,000 troops to march out into the country to drllL They would march out, but when they came back that night only 9000 would return. The other 1000 had dis appeared. No one noticed their absence. No spy would count the troops. This plan would be repeated several times a day with different encampments, and so, they say, the transports were loaded be fore the soldiers were missed." The 15 correspondents who were Anally allowed to go to the front with the First Japanese Army Corps had an extraor dinary experience, according to Mr. Cowles. After leaving Tokio they were calmly informed that all messages must bo translated into Japanese, sent to To kio In Japanese, then censored for the second time, turned back into English and then forwarded to the various newspa pers. This newB saddened tho correspond ents, among whom were many brilliant writers, who feared to think how their stories would look after being translated twice after leaving the battlefield. Shocks to Correspondents. "Nevertheless," continued Mr. Cowles, "they were bearing un under the blow. when they wero further Informed that the entire lot of them would be allowed to send only 250 words a day over the mili tary wire, and that only when no mili tary messages had to be sent. This meant that each man could send six words a day to hi3 newspaper. The helpless correspondents decided to take it in turns and to allow five of their number to file 50 words a day, thus consuming the al lowance. The finishing touch came when the first engagement began, and they were informed that as guests of the Jan anese Government, the army could not permit them to place themselves in dan ger by approaching closer than eight miles to the battle. Now, as one cannot describe a battle by hearing the booming of artillery eight miles away, many of the correspondents came home disgusted." The true story of the death of Mr. Etzel, the Associated Press correspondent who was shot and killed by Chinese sol diers, may never be known, but Mr. Cowles tells the tale current in Asia, "Etzel," said Mr. Cowles, "took a prom inent part in the Boxer troubles. He was an unerring shot and killed many a Chi naman in the skirmishing. On the occa sion of his death he was coming up the river in a Junk, when it was fired on by Chinese soldiers. Etzel was shot through the head and killed. The official explana tion was that the soldiers thought it was a private Junk, but the tale has it that they simply 'got' Etzel in revenge." In the course of his travels Mr. Cowles visited every point of importance connect ed with the present war. He was preyed upon by "unattached" Journalists, by bankswhlch discounted his money com ing and going: went into China, Man churia, Corea, Siberia and those neutral cities which are neither one. thing nor the other, but ho likes Tokio best. "Let me tell you about the bathing," he said to me, with much enthusiasm. "You know things ae different in Japan and the people are not" But I wouldn't listen. A-'C. resigned to go into other business. "Wood stock School will open next Monday with four teachers. The building has been put in good condition. Blackboards have been recolored to protect the pupils' eyes. Pro fessor "William Miller, principal of the Arleta School, District No. 47, organized last Spring, is from Eugene, and Is well known In the state as an educator.. He. served as Superintendent of Linn County. The Arleta School mus be completely organized, as It is a new district. Tw temporary buildings, containing two rooms each, are being built, with a possi bility that a fifth room will have to be provided before the year is finished.

At 10 o'clock last night, John Larson, who lives at 871 Borthwick street, heard a knock at the front door. He went to the door and asked who was there. A voice replied that he desired, to see Mr. Larson on business. He opened the door and was confronted by a masked man who held in his hand a revolver. Quickly springing back, Mr. Larson slammed ahut tho door. "Open the door, or I'll shoot," cried the burglar. Mr. Larson refused, and after making an attempt to get In through the rear door, the burglar went away. Mr. Lar son notified the police station and officers were sent to tho scene, but they found no trace of the bold robber. AIMS OF BRITAIN IN THIBET.

In a speech after signing' tho treaty with Thibet September 1 Colonel Younghusband, the British political agent, pointed out that the British there avoided interfering in the smallest degree with the interna tional affairs of the country. They had not annexed any territory, and had fully recognized tho continued suze rainty of China.

By his mysterious con trol over disease and death Dr. "Wallace Hadley, the eminent thaumaturgic pan opathist of this city, has made the hu man heart beat again in the body ot a woman rescued from the grave. And as a result of his successful experi ments he makes the startling statement that no disease should cause death. He claims to have discovered the vital principle of life Itself, the dynamic force that creates and maintains existence. Since making this discovery the cures made by this man of science have been ao remarkable, the restorations to life and heaMth that he has brought about have been so marvelous that he is cred ited with possessing some power over disease and death not given to ordinary mortals. He seems to have absolute' control over human life and the dis eases that attack it Time and again he has taken men and women pro nounced hopelessly incurable and on the verge of the grave and restored them to life and health in the face of such apparent impossibilities that he is credited with working miracles. The wonder is increased by the fact that he performs these cures without the use less drugs dispensed by doctors; and that he gives freely of his services without charge to all who are sick and afflicted, saying, during a recent in terview: "I believe that it Is my duty to God and man to help a,ll who are in need. I am not a millionaire, but I am well able to afford to do my share toward relieving the sufferings of mankind and driving disease from the earth. And since it is In my power to cure and drive out disease, I feel that I must not use this gift wrongfully. I have no right to deny a poor man the boon of health, neither do I believe in making him wa3te his money on useless drugs. It is not only that medicines often do more harm than good, but I have found something as much superior to them as the sun is to a candle. As evidence of this my experience has proved that there is no disease I may not cure since making this discovery. I do not care how severe the case may be, how chronic, how long standing, what other men have said or failed to do, or whether the patient has been pro nounced incurable or not. I am Just as ready to cure consumption, cancer, paralysis, Bright's disease, organic weakness and other so-called incurable diseases eLs I am to cure stomach and bowel troubles, rheumatism, nervous prostration, blood disorders, catarrh, or any of the other ills that human flesh Is heir to. I have done so many times over. Without intending to boast, I may safely say that I treat more pa tients in a year than the average physi cian does in a lifetime, and among these are numbered cases that are prob ably among the worst in the country. And I cure because I Tiave at my com mand a power over disease so great that its extent can hardly be realized. For instance, read this letter from one of my patients, Mrs. J. G. Whitfield, of Norfolk, Va., who writes: " 'I was so near crossing the Great Valley that my body felt dead and life less; but you made my heart beat again and my blood flow through ray veins once more. I was very despondent when you came to my rescue. My stomach, liver and kidneys were in such a bad state I was afraid I couldn't ever be cured, and in addition I was afflict ed with varicose veins and ulcers, that I thought could not be cured. I was In despair when I wrote to you, feeling that it was a chance for life and health. I suffered untold misery, but now I can shout for Joy over my restoration to life and health. I don't feel like the same person. I do feel so thankful to you. May God ever bless you.' And this from Mr. E. C. Bess, of El Campo, Tex., who says: 'I was as good as dead when you came to my rescue with your most wonderful discovery. I was suf fering the torment of the damned from rheumatism, liver and kidney disease and dropsy. It 1s hard to tell which was the worst, as theyvall set me al most crazy with pain. rdid not know a comfortable moment free from pain. It was like having toothache all over C3a WHY DO OPERATIONS Then why let yourself suffer? This famous doctor knows the action of over COO different remedies that he has successfully used in different dis eases.

Beat Again dy my body, and all going at once. Doctor after doctor had given me up to die, left me dead, and could do nothing to relieve me. But you brought me back to life. I suppose you know how you did' It and I don't much care about the how, as long as you did it so quick ly and permanently. The man I am now could whip three of the man I was.' "Then here is another from Mrs. E. J. Shepherd, of Colfax, Iowa, which reads: I am one of those poor unfortunates whose many years have been spent in bodily affliction. My troubles were bronchitis, kidney disease and catarrh of the head, stomach, bowels, I am 64 years of age, and In those years have tried dozens of doctors and hundreds of remedies, trying to get well, but nothing cured me until I took your force of life. I was confined to my bed and coughed continually. I was in the Jaws of death, and felt that the end was near; but you rescued my body from the grave and gave me back the health that I have not had since my youth. Now I am strong and well, and thank ful to you and the kind providence of our Divine Helper.' These are only random examples, but you see that they all tell the same story of restoration to health Jn the face of what seemed cer tain death. But these and the other so called 'miracles' that I have been cred ited with working are not miracles In the same way as those described In the Bible. They may seem Just as wonder ful to the witnesses, but they are in truth simply scientific phenomena that demonstrate and prove the great value of the discovery I have made, a discov ery that bids fair to upset modern med ical practice, since now no case may be considered incurable." "What is this discovery?" was asked. "I have discovered what creates life. I have found w"hat causes disease and death, and how they may be prevented. A case of disease is no longer a mystery to me, whatever it may be to others. I can see through It as through clear glass. I see the cause and I know the cure. Cases have come to me that have baffled some of the best physicians in the country; where one doctor has said the trouble was the stomach, another said heart, still another diagnosed kid ney disease or something else. But in each case I was able to see the real cause, and by removing It I restored the patient to perfect health. I have known stomach trouble to be diagnosed as heart disease, and heart disease as rheumatism, and countless other sim ilar instances. When these mistakes are made and the patient is treated for the wrong disease, how can the suffer ers hope to get well? It Is as if you tried to cure deafness by wearing eye glasses. One is Just about as sensible as the other. But I make a careful diagnosis of each case that comes to me, and treat the real cause." "You spoke of giving your services free?" "Yes, that is right Any one who is ill in any way and wants to be cured merely has to write to me, addressing Wallace Hadley, M. D.. Office 1024A, 70S Madison Ave., New York City, telling me their greatest pain or trouble, their principal symptoms, age and sex, and I will diagnose their case and send them a course of home treatment absolutely free of charge." "Do you mean that any one who is sick can write to you to be'eured with out paying you any money?" "Yes, I mean Just that. Both my services and the treatment I send are free. I want to prove to the whole world the value of my discovery, and. as I said before, I feel that it Is my duty to give health to all the poor suf ferers that I can. And I am especially anxious to cure those who have been told that their case Is Incurable, that there is no hope for them to regain their lost health and strength. If they will write to me and let me treat them there Is not only hope, but an almost obsolute certainty that they need be sick no longer. And it makes no" dif ference where they live. A letter does Just as much good as a personal visit. I can cure them in their own homes as easily and surely as if they came to me or I went to them." YOU SUFFER?
