What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Many good and mie citizens will be pleased to learn of the es­ tablishment at Great Falls of a Keeley-Institute for the cure of drunkenness and the opium habit. Not only is it good news Jo those who have contracted these habits, but a relief to the many anxious wives and mothers whose husbands and children have been carried out into the stream oi destruction and are fast approaching the terrible end! The appearance in the heavens of the Star of Bethlehem was not more welcome to the shepherds of old than was the dis­ covery of the Double Chloride of Gold Cure to the afflicted of our time. The curse which the com­ ing of Christ was to remove, was no more complete in its awful consequences than that which to­ day is carrying down thousands to distraction. As His coming was to the religions world then so may be considered Dr. -Keeley’s dis­ covery for curing the inebriate to­ day. DR. LESLIE E. KEELEY, the discoverer of the effectiveness of the “ Double Chloride of Gold” as a cure for drunkenness, opium, and the tobacco habits is a native of New York, born o f Irish parents, and now about 55 years of age. He studied medicine in early life but followed other occupations and did not grad uate until the class of 1S(>3 at Kush Medical college, Chi­ cago. After the war Dr. Keeley settled in Dwight, which was then what might be called a frontier town and a good field for the prac­ tice of medicine. After thirteen years of close, lucrative practice, during all of which time the doc­ tor was constantly seeking a cure for the diseases above mentioned, he discovered the “ Double Chlo­ ride or Gold,”, or as it is usually called, the “ Chloride of Gold and Sodium,” the agent sought for. For five years he used his first- remedy, but it wasTnot satisfactory to him. In December, ’S5, he closed his doors to all patients and did not open them again until June, ’S7, at which time he began with an entirely new remedy, only retaining gold as a basis. . It was then that the hypodermic treat­ ment was added to the constitu­ tional treatment. This is the treatment of to-day. All physicians who take charge of institutes all over the country have to be edu­ cated at Dwight, 111, before going there. -In this way Dr, Keeley has a rmps of well educated physi­ cians lo take charge ol his work an 1 give identical trenlment with that a i Dwigh!. TliL GREAT FALLS INSTITUTE, “ just established, is one of thfse branches. The idea of establish­ ing the branch here was conceived by D. B. Vermilye, a graduate of the institute at Dwight, F. G. Heldt and Dr. Newman. Arrange­ ments were made to secure a fran­ chise and upon the organization of the company the franchise was purchased. The company was or­ ganized and incorporated April 11 with the following officers and trustees: Hon. Pads Gibson, president; Ohas. D. Wilt, vice- president; F. Geo. Heldt, secretary, treasurer and manager; A. E. Dickernian and D. L. Tracy. The brick building on the comer of First avenue north and Fourth street was leased for the use of institute and thoroughly renovated and refitted lor the purpose. The institute opened for business May 9, with Dr. A. N. Purdy as the physician in .charge. Dr. Purdy is a graduate of Queen’s college, Kingston, Ontario, and has had 18 years experience in general prac tice. As is required by the rules oi the Keeley company, he receiv­ ed his instruction in the bi chloride of gold treatment at Dwight under the personal supervision of Dr. KeelejL ARRIVED AT THE INSTITUTE, the patient is conducted to the office of the company, where he is registered, goes through a short examination as to his general health, the amount of stimulants he uses daily and what kind. He is required to give up any liquors or drugs he may still have about him, receives a hypodermic injec­ tion or “ shot,” as it is universally called; a drink if he is in need of it; an eight-ounce bottle of the double gold cure, and is then taken; under the direction of an obliging attendant to some one of the hotels, where he remains until he can select for himself a suitable boarding place. There is no long list of printed rules; no attempt at personal supervision; no arbitrary orders as to when von shall lie down or rise up. The most im­ portant requirement of the patient is a voluntary acceptance and a sufficiently earnest recognition of the object to be attained and to implicitly, observe all directions, which are by no1 means difficult The only restrictions to be observ­ ed »vhiie undei treatment are that the.patient shall not leave the city without permission; that -he must be regular in t he use of the double chloride of gold as directed, and visit the office four times a day at specified hours for hypodermic treatment. In all else he is free to seek such amusement or recrea­ tion as Jiis taste or fancy may sug­ gest. After three weeks of this treatment the patient ordinarily is cured and is at liberty to return to his friends and in “ what different guise than forth he rode!” Some cases require more time, than this, and a patient is not allowed to go until the physician is satisfied that he is not only cured of his appetite for liquor or opiates, but is in good bodily health as well. The cost of treatment, which includes all medicines arid medical attendance while the patient remains in the institute is $30 per week. This does not include board. A MONTANIAN CUBED. Among the Montanians who have been successfully treated by the bi-chloride of gold cure is George I-Ialdorn, the well- known attorney of Butte. Mr.Ilaldorn happened to be in Cheyenne trying a case. He was persuaded by his wife and friends to try the Keeley cure and the result as told by himself is as follows: “ I didn’t have the sligbtes idea that I would be cured. . No one who ever goes there thinks for an instant that he can be cured. In my mind, as in the minds of all others, was just one pre­ dominating idea. That was, that' thero might be a possibility of my getting cured and for that reason I wanted to get all the whisky in me while I had the chance. For about four days I was as lively a drunk an the winds of Cheyenne ever blew on. The next Tuesday night the climax came. I was given the knock down shot. After that Mr. Stowell sug­ gested a drink o f whisky and I took a good one. I never was so sick before in niy life. J. hated the sight of it from that instant. The next morning I tried a drink, but only got it into my mouth when I had to spit it out. That was the last effort. 1 “ But the treatment kept up. They will not let anyone go under three weeks. They give four shots daily, at.8:30 a. m .„ 12 noou, 4 and 7 p . m. I had 80 injec­ tions altogether, with a small thimble­ ful in each dose. Besides that were six teaspoonfuls of the dope a day for three weeks. I was under treatment 22 days altogether. “ Now what is the result? T feel as lively, as hearty and as well as when I was 20 years old. I have not the slight­ est taste for liquor, o r for tobacco either. Everything seems cheerful and bright. I feel well in the morning and my disposi­ tion is changed in lots of ways. My braid is clear; I can do far more work and do it better.” ■ - ■ — - - • ■ — The hardest known wood is co- cus wood; it turns the edge of an ax, however well tempered.
