The Hoot Owl cam* down from the tri*

"Follow me." screamed the Hcot Owl
Ho led the Bogey Man to a held which
was all rough. The rabbits and the held
mica had ta-en working all night making
holds everywhere they could.
"Why, this Is no place to play golf,"
aold the Bogey Man as he took a big .trlnk

up saplings and kept those which had the
funniest and the ugliest roots on the ends
"Now then," aald the Hoot Owl, "I guess
that we are all raedy. Sly Fox. you can
carry the clubs."
The Hoot Owl and Sty Fox made the
Bogey Man use all of the queer kinds of
sticks which eh>y hnd brought He h id
to shove the balls Into hob s over the
Held, and then he had lo apnorvthem out
again with two or three kinds of club*,
and then ahove them over to another hole
Aa fast as he got through with one club
Ely Fox would take It away from him and
give him another which was more twisted
and curved than the one before.
"laci't he learnleic fas*'’" sabl the Hoot
Owl to His Fox with a wink
“O. fine." answered siv Fox "Oo|f

Hypnotism i no longer a myth, a fanciful creation of the mind, bul a realby.
a mol Imtcnl power, capable of proiluclnir Infinite aood. For the purpoee of acer
■u.mnit the exact value of this much-talked-of power a committee, compored of
a prominent mmleter. a well-known phyalclan. a practical buplnera man and a
lemllmr railroad man. was appointed, lo Inveatlxate Personal Magnetism and Hat
Tae committee carried on n series of Investlratlona In regard to the power of
hypnotism to Influen e the actions nnd deeds of people I nthe everyday walks of life.
The first u p taken by the members of the committee was to master th
science in ever? and tall, to that they might state from personal experience the
good or evil this taranxc power might produce. They wrote the New York Itvetl
ture of 8-lence of Rochester, N. Y.. the nreeiest school of Hypnotism and Occult
sciences In the world, and received full and complete Instruction* In regard to
how hypnotism may he used to Influence people In business, how to use It In
treating discuses, e'c.. eh- In a few days they mastered - these instruct lona and
wer* ftill-fle li?ed h\pito’ Ist*.
It w.i* IrtrlN demonstrated that hypnotism may be employed so that ths
person Op' rated upon is entirely unconscious of the fact that he Is being In
fluenced. and. all things considered, the committee regards It as the most val
uable dis.-overt y of modern times. A knowledge of It Is essential lo one's suc
cess In life nnd well-lielug In society.
Mr. Stotfer p< rtorme | (he itMonlshln* feat of hypnotising Mr. Cunningham,
of Pueblo. Col., at a distance of sevsral blocks. He also hypnotised sn aged gen
tleman nnd had hint run through the streets shouting "Red-hot peanuts for sale."
Mr ttloufed says It Is Indlspensab'e to one's business success, that It gives a man
a wonderful power and advantage over his associates
Rev. Mr yulnn says that every minister and every mother should under
stand personal magnetism and hypnotism for the benefit they can be to those
with whom they are brought In daily contact.
Ir More held says, after a thorough Investigation, that h* consider# It th#
most marvelous therapeutic or curative agent of modern times.
Jacob Itodratn, Jr., says: "I believe otto may, through the agency of hypnotism,
develop ~ force of character, a magnetic imver that will make him practi
cally Irreiddihle. I never before understood th secret of th* Influence which
some men exercise <iv. r audiences and la’ge bodies of people. I was completely as
