DO NOT KNOW WHAT
Modem People Have Many Names for Same
Diseases, According to New Belief.
Does human health depend on one
organ alone? This-question is be
coming widely discussed since 1 T.
Cooper first advanced his theory that
the stomach is the trueseat of life
and all health dependent upon it.
Mr. Cooper, who has met with re
markable success in the sale of his
new medicine, believes that the stom
ach, is responsible for most sickness,
and that this organ is weak in the
present generation. While discussing
this theory recently, he said: "I am
asked time and again to tell why my
medicine has made such a record
wherever I have introduced it. My
answer always is, 'because it restores
the stomach to a normal condition.'
No one will deny that today there
are more half-sick men and women
than ever before. Nothing critical
seems to be the matter with them.
They are just half-sick most of the
time. They don't know really what is
the tnatter with them. 1 have talked
with thousands during the past two
years, and few knew indeed what
their trouble was. One said nervous
ness, another said kidney trouble, an
other liver complaint, some constipa
tion, or heart trouble, or lung trouble.
Many had treated, as they called it,
for most of these diseases at different
times. A very -common complaint is
'all run down,' or 'tired all the time,'
or 'no appetite.'"
"I know positively that every bit
of this chronic ill health is caused by
stomach trouble, and nothing else.
My New Discovery puts the stomach
in sound condition in about six
weeks. Mighty few people can be
sick with a sound digestion. That is
why my medicine is selling at such a
tremendous rate. I have convinced
many thousands of people that these
things are so, and the number is
growing by leaps and bounds."
Among more recent converts to
Mr. Cooper's belief is Mr. Edgar L,
Hinds, living at 6 Tappan street,
Everett, Mass. Mr. Hinds has this
to say on the subject:
"I have suffered with stomach
trouble for eight years. I was not
sick enough to be in bed, but just
felt bad all the time. My greatest
trouble was that i always felt tired,
would get up in the morning feeling
as tired as when I went to bed.
"I had a very irregular appetite.
and was troubled with diwy spells. If
I stood for any length of time, I
would have a dull pain in the lower
part of my back. I was nervous and
felt all the time' as though something
terrible was going to happen. I tried
many kinds of medicine, but nothing
ever helped me.
"I had about given up all hope of
ever being in good health again, when
I heard so much of Cooper and decid
ed to try his medicine. I took one
bottle of his New Discovery and was
greatly surprised at the result. I
gained 12 pounds in a few weeks. I
can now eat anything 1 wish, and
feel like a new man. I cheerfully
recommend this medicine to all suf
ferers from stomach trouble."
It is worth anyone's time, who is
not enjoying good health, to learn of
Mr. Cooper's wonderful preparations.

The steamer Undine came down

cordial and appropriate response by
those upon whom he called during the
What developed at the dinner and
made it notable, was not so much
what was declared or promised or an
nounced, as the patent growth of a
feeling of mutual understanding and
good will alround; the assurances that
might have been hoped for being, of
course, left for expression to those
still higher up in the councils of the
great road, the gentlemen standing
for that road last night not being
charged with the responsibility of
making definite or binding sugges
tions as to what the company would
or might do for Astoria; but they
succeeded in leaving a quiet convic
tion that in time the certain rela
tions of the city and road would be
found to merge as soon as
the business of the line and
the energy and interest of
Astoria should dictate. Those present
on behalf of the city were: Messrs.
W. T. Scholficld, president of the
Chamber of Commerce; John 11.
Whyte, its manager, and-James Wal
lace, its secretary; C. W. Carnahan,
Collector of Customs; J. T. Ross, J.
M. Anderson, J. N. Criffin, E. Z. Fer
guson, G. Wingate, August Hilde
brand, John Gratke, F. J. Carney, A.
R. Cyrus, William McBeth, Dr. W. C.
Logan, W. E. Schimpf, C. G Darland,
C. L. Lamar and G. B. Johnson.
When the viands had been duly dis
cussed, President Scholfield, in a few
pleasant words, thrust the burden of
leadership upon Mr. Whyte, and con
tented himself with introducing the
guests of the evening to the assem
blage and giving them all cordial wel
come. Mr. Whyte was all ready for
the assignment, and lost no time in
putting everybody at ease in his
usual handy fashion, and made the
railway men to understand they were
among men who wanted to be friends
with the "North Bank" in all that
word meant for both. He indicated
that if Astoria could not have infor
mation, advice would help some, and
asked them to deal with the occasion
as frankly and cordially as it was in
their power to do. He dealt with
Astoria as the future great port of
the Northwest and drew parallels with
New York and New Orleans in the
scheme of national exporting distri
bution, and declared the Columbia to
be the highway that was to lead the
shipments of its great basin to this
terminal depot ti'; '.'.! 1

J. Carney to explain further, and that
gentleman rose to the occasion by an
open declaration that "we were of
Astoria; it's where we live and have
our being, we live in it and for it and
by it and with it. We have had our
railway experiences, and are profit
ing by them; yet possessed a tinc
ture of the old Missouri-need to 'be
shown something'; we want to co
operate with the North Bank and its
people, and will do so if we are but
shown how best to do it; there is
nothing we will not do for Astoria's
interest or the interest of the Hill
lines, if we can be put in touch with
the needs of the hour and as the

Mr. Adams, as the leading figure in
the S. P. & S. group present was
then called on and responded with
many friendly and pertinent allusions
to the community of interest that
must, in time, develop as the road and
its business grew and found its logical
channels; he expressed his pride in
the great road for which he stood,
and while he could offer nothing more
substantial, at the moment, than the
'glad hand,' he gave that and the
earnest of tfie company's good will
to this city. He thought that the
quickest way to settle all differences,
if any existed, was for all to stop
talking and get to work; what the
load can do for Astoria it wants to
o and will do; it is a question of ex
pansion with the road just as it is
with Astoria. He conveyed the re
grets of President Clark at his inabil
ity to be present
General Superintendent Forrest in
response to the call "from the toast
master, expressed his pleasure in be
ing present and said that the next

Astoria no dinner nor other formality
would be needed to accentuate the
meeting; that they would know their
friends; that the North Bank road is
to be a great help to Astoria and its
territory, especially in her great tim
ber resources and output; that As
toria is an objective point of the road
in this relation; that Superintendent
John McGuire seemed to have set a
good pace in Astoria judging by the
warm and numerous friends he seem
ed to have; and that upon such an
augury, the North Bank people will
do all they may to help Astoria out,
and expects the City-by-the-Sea to
meet them half-way.

that he was "afraid of losing his job"
if he started to talk; the inference be
