AS AMAN 60 TEAK Age and nisMs BeTMled JXI M T M< Trini(ta»;- Colo., Nov. -12^—After a career of eM^ity.Ttljrfie ye^rs. sixty of 'whichr sbe. spent m#iuera!dtn^ as- a man, Charles Vdsbangb, alias Catherine Vosbaug^, is dead here of- infirmities due to old 8g». Por the past twanty-oni yeirs-Jihp Jived In or near TrlBldad, passing nineteen years as a man, most of the time !in the employ of one man, who never suspected her real sex. Por fifteen years Miss Vosbaugh lived at Hannibal, Mo:, where she woiiced in the old Eastern bank as a clerk. While in. Hannibal she married the daughter, of a well known family to save the utafortnnate ^rl 's reputa- lion. The two .women, still masquerading as man and wife, came to Trinidad nearly twenty years. ago. After «er "wife's" death Miss Vosbaugh worM. here in various capacitles.- . Necessltr prompted her to adopt a male garb and become a man in every thing but sex, Thr6e score years ago, young, handsome, full of. life and spirits, and educated with a liberality that ^oiild today have given her the open :#ea8ame to the highest walks of life, the-workl refused her a living as a .woman. ^As a man'it: showered good things upoB<hep, aoA as a man sbe attained high standing io tbe community she hiad adopted as her home. As a maOi Catherine Vosbaugh. in tbe sixty-years during which she fooled the whole world atf to her sex, was a bank clerk at Hannibal, a bookkeeper, a restaurant keeper, a sheep herder. She underwent some of the most severe experience, but was a "gentleman" through it all. And through all these years she led a clean life. Two years and four months ago sbe came to San Raphael hospital, and it jwas then that her sex became known. IjEfhe had been cooking on the Sam iBrown ranch and herding sheep there Ifor many years. She was known as "Old Frenchy." and for many years was thought to be a whimsical old man. The two women, still masquerading as man and wife, came to Trinidad two years ago. After the death of her "wife" Miss Vosbaugh worked here in various capacities. i TO CUBE A COLD Ef OJiE DAT Take LAXATIVE BROMO Quinine Tablets. Druggists refund money it it fails to cure. E. W.

Read the testimonials of cures made during the first week of his stay here, and be convinced through the experience of your friends and neighbors: Paola, Kas., Oct. 31. 1907. Prof. Peters:—To the public: I will make the following statement 1 have iiad a birthmark on my face that showed awful plain. Prof. Peters put his hands on the spot and I can truly say that it Is disappearing fast. It can scarcely be seen at all now. MISS LUCY NOBLE. Paola, Kas. Stiff Knee Joint Cured. I have had rheumatism since lust March, have used enough medicine to float a boat, treated by doctors and taken all kinds of patent medicines, but got no benefit whatever; have not bent my knee for months. After one treatment by Prof. Peters I could bend my knee with perfect ease. 1 cannot speak too highly for Prof. Peters for I know by experience that he can heal . I could feel tbe electr^ity all through me the instant he laid his hand on me. MRS. LIZZIE HUTCHINSON. Nov. 4th. 1907. 810 South Walnut street, lola, Kas. Flowed SI Days—Instantly Stopped. Bassett, Kas., Nov. :{, 1907. I have been afTllcted for JC years, tried every doctor I ever heard of but received no relief; taken all kinds of medicine. Flowed the last 21 days. Could not eat; vomited nearly all the time. The first treatment of Prof. Peters instant relief came. The flow stopped two hours after treatment. I was hungry fo rihe first time for months. Will lie glad to tell any who may call at niy home of the wonderful help I received from Prof. PeterH. I will take a full course of treatment for I feel better than 1 have felt for years. 1 am gratefully yours, .MRS. F. F. M'CULLOUGH. lola, Kansas, Nov. 7. 1907. Our child has been sick since birth. Many doctors saw her, a few evenings since we thought her dying, the doctors gave her up. We telephoned for Prof. Peters and he arrived bringing two gentlemen with him, as they approached the bedside one of the gentlemen thought the child dead as she lay there, rigid and white. Prof, Peters washed his hands, took the child's hands and in a most mysterious way passing his hands gently over the child's body, to our surprise and delight in less than five minutes the child raised Itself and sit up in lied. The Professor blew his breath on its stomach, said the child had pin worms and they would pass the next day. To our astonishment the next day the pin worms passed in bunches. When Prof. Peters turned from the bedside he remarked. This is not u power of my own, it is a power from on high, greater than all the power on earth. The child Is improving ever since, appetite has come to it. The above was witnessed by several people who will verify every word and whose amazement was as great as our own. You can imagine a mother's feelings to see her darling baby raised from what seemed to be an almost hopeless case. W. F. ORR, RETTA ORR, ROSA L. WRIGHT. ETHEL DARTER, 209 South 10th Street.

B. T. n«R», BBCalo.«. T. Addn« Prospects for Foot Bali f:ont('st Between La Harpe and Chanute Good. The prospects for having the annual Christmas foot ball game between the famous La Harpe team and the Chanute Go Devils again this year nre growing brighter every day. The indications are that tlie teams which line up that day will be as strong as the teams of former years. Prentice Donald, the K. U. captain and tackle,- and Bruuner, the big K. U. full back, saw Manager Phillips of the La Harpe team at Lawrence Saturday. Both of the men promised Phillips that they would play. It is said that Hlnkey. the All-Amerlcan Yale man who is now assistant superintendent of the Lanyon Zinc company in lola. will be willing to play. It is also probable tliat McDonald of Harpe and perhaps Rodgers and DeSaulIes will go into the game. Allen, the star of yesterday's game, Ellis the star fullback of the 1904 Ottawa University team, •Fatty Street, Pearl Noiton and many other excellent local piayors would be available. It the Christmas game should be I.t.ayed, the Chanute lineup would show very few of the players In yesterday's game. The Petersons of the Terriole Swede team, would be back in the game.. Pooler, the famous little quarterback and ex-captain of the K. U. team, William of Washburn, Lof ton of the Cotfeyville team and probably others would be secured to strengthen the Chanute team. As a financial venture the game c(mld not be a failure wherever played. As La Harpe had tbe game last year, it is probable that the game will be played at Chanute this year. WENOORF DRAWS THE LINE. PETITION NOT SMOOTH SAILING. Two Petitions Out in Bill Bailey's Case For and Against. Objecta to Patrons Swearing at Department Over the Phone. His (Humboldt Herald.) There are two petitions out in the case of Bill Bailey. One petition is signed by those who wish the parole law to take effect in his case and one is signed by tliose who prefer to see him stay in jail for the full term of his sentence. Both sides are in favor of having him stop the sale of liquor, but they see is in a different light The parole tried as an experiment in tlie case of Charlie Sargent and It worked very well. Sargent has not sold or handled a drop of liquor a» far as known since the parole took effect and he has been watched pretty clo.sel.v. A numDer of those who signed his parole told" bim they would report the first break he made to Judge Foust Bailey promises to quit the business of selling liquor, to sell out his restaurant if so desired, to pay all his fines and costs and to behave himself generally if the parole Is granted. It is certain that if Judge Foust grants the parole that he will tie Bailey up tight as a drum. . But Bailey has held the general public rather in contempt while he has been in the liquor business and a good many peop'e are sora. They do not know whether he will he good or not. They also think that to sign 11 parole for everj'one convicted, especially when the case is fought to the supr.^nie court will tend to discourage the ofllcers. As the intention of the law and the officers, however, ij to stop the sale, and" the parole method Is more effective than a short jail sentence, it is not thought that this would be the result GET GENERAL OFFICES Gainer Engineering Company to Move to Humboldt S.

In other words several of tbe patrons were so indignant at the gas shortage that tbey "cussed" the bead of the department its em- pk>yees and the present administration. Mr. Wendorf thinks people should not swear at him, even if be is a Democrat He also objects to tbe patrons swearing at his employees.
