Old Home Town - 100 years ago

November 27, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 27, 1906: "Prof. J. Miller, worker of miracles for pay, divine healer, saver of a race of afflicted, curer of all manners of diseases by laying on his hands, and a variety of other things too numerous and inconsequential to mention, has flitter, fled, gone, skipped out. He made countless claims, used advertising to draw crowds and seemed remarkable and obliging. But his graft soon wore out here. Patients left him, their patience gone, and he left who knows with how much ill-gotten gain."
