Aged Man Dies

It is reported that an old man named St. John who resided near Cherokee died Sunday as a result of treatment received from John Till, at Somerset.

It seems that St. John has been ailing for some time and having been advised to try the healing powers of Till, went up last week and had a plaster put upon his back, one which extended from the neck to below the waist was applied and on account of his advanced age he was unable to withstand the shock.

His death occurred at the Commercial House in Colby.

John Till Fined

The famous John Till has at last come to the end of his career in Wisconsin, having been arrested this week at the instance of the state board of medical examiners, and fined $50. for practicing medicine without a license.

After all that has been said against this man Till, there is no question but that he has performed some wonderful cures. The law under which ha (he) was convicted was passed at the last session of the legislature and was undoubtedly framed to fit this particular case.

Wherever Till goes he will take with him the sincere gratitude of several in this vicinity who have been helped by him.
