A bout two months ago a man canvassed the city for a patent medicine nostrum and had the nerve to teil those who were foolish enongh to buy the stuff, a fairy story of large proportions.

He also told his viotims that at this "grand drawing" 50 cents of the dollar they gave for the medicine(?) would be refunded to them. It seems almost inoredible that anyone would bite on suoh a fake but several did and turned up at the opera house at the appointed honr, only to flnd that the "grand drawing" existed only in the imagination of the wily.
