Throwing Away Money.
Savannah iG.i.) News.
There is not a city of importance in
the country that could not be gov
erned as well as 'it is now governed
for two-thirds the cost of its present
government if its affairs were con
ducted on strictly business principles.
1 he political boss, however, will not
permit it to Ikj so governed, and he
would not permit colonies, if he had
them, to lie governed on business
principles. He would have his hand
in everything. Merit would not have
a chance anywhere; political influence
would control everywhere. That was
the case to a very great extent in the
war with Spain." The hand of the po
litical boss was visible too frequently.
It mii-t be confessed, whatever may
be thought of our system of electing
senators in theory, that in operation
it is a conspicuous failure. In elect
ing other ollieers. the people meet in
convention and name their candidates,
and they come together at the polls
and settle who is to lie chosen. I his
i usually but a day's work in each
case, in electing senators the legis
latures quarrel over the subject for
weeks and months, to the detriment
of legitimate legislation, .and it may
be then leave the otlice vacant, It
would seem that such a system can
not reasonably be continued. !
0. YE OF LITTLE FAITH.
Hut wLen an honest man 65 vears
of age. and who has lived in our city
for 3U vears and owns his own prop
erty, sjieaks. we imst? give ear to his
words and have faith in what he rec
ommends. For that reason we pub
lish for the benefit of our borne peo
ple the statement, of H. West. 211
North street, Saginaw, Mich., as fol
lows: "My back was very lame, was
quite nervous at times and my gener
al health was seriously impaired.
Some time ago I was induced to try
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids. of whieh I had
heard a great ileal, and I procured the
remedy. I had not much faith in it,
as I previously had tried a large num.
bcr of kidney pills and kidney reme
dies without any particular benefit,
but I want to say that I got simply
wonderful relief within two days after
commencing the use of Kid-ne-oids.
and that I am now entirely cured.
I regard my case as a severe test of
the medicine, as so many others had
failed to help me. My advice to kid
ney sufferers is to give Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
a thorough trial and tind relief
as I did."
Mr. We-t had no faith at lirst, but
the assurance of his friends induced
him ts try once again. The result is
given alove. Ia I Mr. West be your
friend, and if you suffer with bach
ache, sleeplessness, nervousness, etc.,
take his advice and use Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
and get cured. Mr. West is a
grateful man and will be glad to write
you how much he was leuelitted by
the use of Morrow's Kid-ne-oids. if
you will enclose stamp for reply. Io
not confound Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
with any kind of kidney pills: they
are not pills at all. but yellow tablets
which are put up in wooden boxes and
sell at 60 cents. Morrow's Liver-Lax
are very small red pellets, and cure
constipation: they sell at .'. cents a
box. Both of these remedies are for
sale by all tirsl-.-las druggists or will
be mailed by the manufacturers on

ances and Their Use.
Dr. J. E. Asay has established at his
office and residence, Fourth ave
nue, in the new Koaehe building', a
complete sanitarium for the modern
treatment of nervous, rheumatic,
gouty, joint and chronic diseases by
intense heat, Turkish bath," electric
ligrht heat, ineondeseent gas light
bath, massage, hot and cold water
baths ajid electricity.
Two apparatuses manufactured by
Frank S. Betz & Co., of Chicago, one of
which is used for local treatment, a
cut of which we give here.
This opiaratus has attachments as
you see for treating arms, leg?,
shoulders, hips, kidneys and abdomen
with dry hot air at four hundred and
fifty F., for the topical treatment of
acute, sub-acute and articular rheuma
tism, arthritis, ankylosis, paralysis,
etc. In other words to cause absorp
tiou of effusion and restore mobility
to joints stiffened by injury or dis
ease, relieving pain immediately.
This large cabinet also is manu
factured by Frank S. Betz fe Co., of
Chicago, a cut of which we here pre
sent. It is a complete up-to-date
Turkish bath room, up-to-date, we
say. because the jratient does not in
hale the usual impure atmosphere of
the Turkish bath room.
It is a well known fact, that the
gtreral practitioner of medicine iu
his private office, cannot treat his
chronic cases as successfully as his'
colleague in a hospital or sanitarium,
bec&u&e the latter has the most ef
fective appliances and apparatuses sug
gisted by modern scientific research

dir gnostic ability, drugs alone cannot
cure nil cases, and contrary to the
text-book information, there is a large
list ol so-called incurable diseases
which drugs alone cannot cure. It is

Much has been written of the thera-
putic value of dry hot air recently by
well known physicians from all parts
of the world. The electric light heat
and the incandescent gas light bath
are of great value over many other
therapeutic agents for the cure ol
ceTrain classes of diseases and pain,
the application of which is as pleasant
to the patient as a sun bath. Uy
either of these applications perspira
tion is induced at a temperature lower
than that of the body because of the
stimulating and the radiant effect of
the light, and instead of weakness fol
lowing the usual Turkish bath, the
patient feels stimulated, no headache,
no depression and no -weakness as he
has inhaled no impure atmosphere.
Th head is not included in the hot
roc-ma and is kept cool by motor fans.
5 - '
The treatment of the entire body with
dry hot air, with the exception of the
head, is more effective than the vapor
or usual Turkish bath because higher
temperature and for longer periods of
time can be borne if the heated air
is perfectly dry, as is the case in the
Eet7 apparatuses, the electric light
and the incandescent gas light bath,
the patient remaining in a recumbent
pos it km during the treatment, thus
resting and saving energy. The pers
piration is very profuse and continued
in all these forms of application and
are therefore indicated in obesity,
kidney diseases, ill defined cases, gen
eral rheumatism, g-outenesses, nervous
phenomena, pelvic congestion, ovarian
neuralgia. La Grippe, etc.
We present here a cut of the im
proved slab used in the Turkish bath
department which is a great improve
ment over the old style slab as the
ordinary person is not straight enough
to lie comfortably upon the straight
slab. l'ersons taking Turkish bath
will find this slab u great comfort.
The latest compressed air apparatus,
tbeEureka Nebulizer, is used in the
special treatment of chronic Bronchi
tis, Catarrhal affection of the Ilead,
Throat, Lungs and Deafness, arresting
the progress of disease of the inflam
ed membranes, allaying irritation,
ccntroling cough, healing ulcerations
and restoring physiological functions
promoting a perfect oxidation in
the process of nutrition and assimila
tion. The operator has perfect con
trol of the' pressure, as air gauges in
dicate amount used, which is very
essential, nnd enables the treatment
of children, timid persons or invalids,
One alternating sinusoidal apparatus
ekctro magnetic machine is used with
milliampereancter to register accur
ately the quantity of currenit. This
is the latest and one of the best ma
chines made, and those whose cases
reqtire electricity, need not fear get
ting a shock. Electricity is not given
with nay of the baths unless needed
or desired.. In the electric light heat
and the incandescent gas light bath,
light only is used with the heat gen
erated from the same. The perspira
tion induced by these cabinets will
equal any of the Hot Springs baths.
There are four shower baths, sup
plied with hot and cold water, for
those who desire only a plain bath.

night, to any of the departments ex-
cepting on Tuesdays and ThusJrya

The length of treatment depends ou
the intensity of the case. Those, for
inctance, who have been afflicted for
years, improve only gradually after a
few treatments, while in more acute
cases, a few treatments suffice. The
length of a treatment is one hour or
more, according to the patient, and
for a Turkish bath the same length of
time is required, not including time
to rest or sleep after the same.
