KEEN LOCAL INTEREST
IN L. T. COOPER'S WORK.
At Present Time Young Man Is Much In
The Public Eye of a Busy City.
F. C. Tracy the Local Agent Receives Many Inquiries Regard-
ing Mr. Cooper and His Medicine.
Since bis announcement last week
that he had Hecurcd the local agency
for the famo'is Cooper Remedies Mr.
F. C. Traoey has been besieged With
inquiries regarding the celebrated Mr.
Cooper and the work ho is now doine
in Chicago. In response to the ex-
pressed desire of many persons for more
news regarding this remarkable young
man and his medicine the following is
taken from a recent issue of the Chi-
Still more cases are heard from and
the continued stream of humanity
poured into the Public Drug Co. 150
State Street yesterday in search for
the remarkable new discovery of med-
icine. The demand for these remedies
Beems to grow larger each day. Thous-
ands of Chicagoans who have suffered
for years with chronic stomach trouble'
catarrh and rheumatism are .being
made happy every day by the uso'of
this peculiar remedy sold by Mr. Coop-
er. An hour or so spent at the Cooper
headquarters would convince the most
skeptical person that this new treat-
ment is something entirely different
from' any thing elso ever Bold. As
usual Mr. Cooper was busy all day re-
ceiving kind words and thanks from
the hundreds who had been entirely
cured by this simple preparation.
Mr. John Schwirtzen living at 303
Fifth avenue hod the following to say:
"I have had rheumatism for Bcveral
years sick at che stomach felt- tired
and dull most of the time. I have tried
everything I have ever heard of in the
way of medicine and found practically
no relief. I was advised to try Coop-
er's New medicine. I did so and the
result is I am relieved of rheumatism

my stomach does not bother menny
and I have a good appetite can eat
anything I want. I am fcejing better
than I have for years. I want to say
right here this is the greatest medicine
I ever heard of You may use my
name for I want others who are
troubled in the same way to bis relieved
as I have been."
Another caller was Mr. W. B. Stew-
art 109 West Madison Street who said :
"I have had- stomach trouble for
years and any one who is afflicted in
this way knows what an awful dis-
tressed feeling it causes. Many a time
I have fdlt that I would give most any
price to be cured. It was by accident
that I heard of this man Cooper's rem-
edies. I immediately made up my
mind to buy a treatment of him. I
(have been using it about two weeks arid
it is impossible to toll how much good
it has done me. I feel altogether dif-
ferent; I have more life and energy
than I have had for years This med-
icine crtainly does stimulate and
strengthen the whole system. TJie
tired feeling and weak condition of the
stomach hus entirely passed away. I
feel well again."
Mr Cooper said in speaking of the
matter: "It usually takes from three
to five weeks for people to feel the ef-
fects of medicines in such cases. I
will have hundreds during the remain-
der of my siay in this city call and
thank me for what the medicine has
done for them in cases of catarrh stom-
ach trouble rheumatism and nervous-
ness. I am always glad to Bhake hards

that we should appreciate in this life
it is good health."

C. II. Earl of Ivanhoe O T. says
that corn crop in that part of tho terri-
tory is better than in any part of Kan-
sas that ho traveled over in coming to
this market. Tlio season was just right
all tho way through" said Mr Earl.
"Tho crops wo raised wore a surprise to
everybody. Tho whole country is full
of forage feed. One of my neighbor
has 200 acres in alfalfa and ho cut 3
big crops from it. That means a whole
lot of good feed. T.ie alfalfa is gaining
in acreago around there very fast.
There the crops ofkaflir corn and cane
were largo also. Tho corn crop is the
best I believe that we ever raised.
There was aNlargor acreago and tho
yield is better A good many hogs
have sprung up over the country and
they will bo fed and brought (to tho
Kansas City market. The great abund-
ance of forage feed as well as of com
is going to induce some farmers to do
ome cattle feeding. Wo will not go
into" it extensively but several small
lots will bo ftd around over tlie country
which in the aggregate will make a good
showing for a new country It i.srtho
first attempt but I believo it will be
kept up." Drovers Telogram(K. 0.)

Picnic "Wet" Affair. '
The picnic last week was a "wot" af-
fair in tho fullest seuo of the word.
Of course the management was not to
blame for tho "wot" produced by tho
elements in a three days rain and wo
are also Informed that they wore no
more-ul fault for the other variety of
"wot" which was dispensed quite free-
ly. At any rate it is too bad tho
weather interfered for plans had been
made for general good time and tho
attendance would have boon large. It's
too late nbiv to make amends but next
year early wo shall expect the boys to
give us another chanco for as good a

The Money Panic.
Retribution Is overtaking Wall Stroet
stock jobbers speculators and railroad
wreckers and for tho past ten days New
York has had a panic similar to that of
1803. The east is scrambling for tho
money of the country and interest
rates in Now York have gono as high
as eight per cent a mouth
With such exhorhitant rated offered
the money of the country which is
now in the west would have been
shipped to the easl by the tens Of mill-
ions of dollars thereby raising tho in-
terest rates of tho west depreciating
the prices of our products and tempo-
rarily at least causing hard times.
To nit'ot this contingency and prh-
vent tho panic from spreading outsldo

tho United States by concerted action

within their vaults oven refusing to
pay out a dollar in currency over their
In KansiiB City the banks limited the
amount to $100 paying any customer
not to exceed $100 In currency. In
Wichita thu banks limit tho amount
to $6.00. Wo understand tho Meado
banks are allowing a small amount' to
pass over tholr counters.
At Beavor tho Bank of Beavor City
is paying their own cttslomors not tu
exceed 25.00. The First Statu Bank Is
not paying out any currency but is
taking care of all customers with-gilt-edge

this action on account of other banks-
to which tho First statu Bank is allied
taking similar action.
Cashier Laughrin Bpoaklng of. tho

but that befng an inland town and
