Standard OH tn Ohio.
The Chicago Chronicle, which ha:
evidentlv fallen far behind the proces
sion, inquires with much solicitude
whether the supreme ' court or the
Standard Oil company is the ultimate
authority jn the state of Ohio. That
question was settled long ago. The
supreme court enioys a- limited au
thority, its jurisdiction being confined
to adjudicating clothesline cases and
passing upon the appeals of gentlemen
convicted of stealing ho-s. In all
other matters the decree of the Stand
ard or any of its officers Is final. Ap
peal from its dtcisions does not lie
even to the supreme court of the Uni
ted States. The state oflicers recog
nize the force and authority of the
Standard s decisions, the only excep
tion being Attorney deneral Monnett,
who has laid himself open to con
tempt proceedings bv questioning the
infalibility of Mr. .Rockefeller. Mr.
Monnett, however, will probably le
put in jail as soon Mr. Rockefeller
can get around to the matter, and
then the recognition of the Standard's
authority will be unanimous.

Hi Life Was Saved.
J. E. Iilly. a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately had a won
derful deliverance from a frightful
death. In telling of it he says: "I
was taken with typhoid fever that ran
into pneumonia. My lungs liecame
hardened. I was so weak I couldn't
even sit up in bed. Nothing helped
me. 1 expected to soon die of con
sumption, when I heard of Dr. King's
New Discovery. One bottle gave great
relief. I continued to use it, ami now
am well and strong. I can't say too
much in its praise. This marvelous
medicine is the surest and ouickest
cure in the world for all throat and
lung trouble. Regular sizes 50 cents

Have Vou Had the Crip?
If vou have, vou probably need a
reliable medicine like Folev s Honev
and Tar to heal vour lungs and stop
the racking cough incidental to this
disease. Foley's Honev and Tar
Cough Medicine is unquestionably the
best remedy for the throat antl lungs.
Pleasant to take and is guaranteed.
We have saved many doctor bills
since we began using Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy in our home. We
keep a bottle open all the time and
whenever any of my family or myself
begin to catch cold we begin to use
the Cough Remedy, and as a result
we never have to send away for a doc
tor and incur a large doctor bill, for
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy never
fails to cure. It is certainly a medi

When I see a man who is an easy and steady eater and a
sound and regular sleeper, I see a man who has no occasion to
be afraid of the world, the flesh or the devil. For, from those
still solemn hours of the night, when human figures lie like
recumbent statues in the darkness, and from those other hours
when busy forks ami fingers deliver to the mouth the food
which the palate stands ready to welcome from these two
things, I say, proceeds all human power, together with the

When we sleep,' said Leigh Bunt, isthe time when the
mysterious spirit goes to take its airy rounds." "I advise
you to sleep in peace and wake in joy," said Sir Walter Scott.
Sleep," said Bui wer, -is the happiest of earthly boons.
"Sleep," said a poet-philosopher of Boston, "lingers all our
lifetime near our eyes as the night hovers all day in the boughs
of the tir tree."
What these gentlemen say is very good and fine, and
makes sleep seem as easy a thing to come at as a ham sand
wich is to the fellow who has live cents still left in his
pocket. Nevertheless, if you could take the roofs off the
honses and look down into them from shnrp nnssinm from

somnolent gods from early evening to the crack of day.
"I couldn't sleep," writes a ladt-. "I tossed and tumbled
with pain and excitement. This was some five years ago. I
suffered greatly from pain in the back, strange mental hallu
cinations, loss of appetite, scanty and daik fluid which
scalded in passincr. bad taste in the mouth in the morninsr. loss
of nerve and tone, restless nights, gradual failure of weight and energy, "and dark and sallow skin. I had no ambi
tion to go about my dailj duties. Kveu the weight of my clothes was oppressive.
"My sister had taken Warner's Safe Cure for female weakness and been immensely benefited. I gave up my
doctor and began using the Safe Cure. Soon I felt like another person. I could eat heartily and my system was
tilled with fresh vigor. My health was restored and I worked with ease and slept like a tired school girl."" (Signed).

NOTHING BUT FACTS.
No Deception Used in Talking
About Morrow's Kid-ne-oids.
The Arguments in Their Favor Comes
From People Who Have Tested
There is no deception in anything
we publish about Morrow's Kid-ue-oids.
All our statements are facts,
and are from people right here in
Rock Island. People in all walks of
life are using and recommending Kid-ne-oids
because they cure backache,
nervousness, sleeplessness and gener
al debility in cases where other reme
dies have failed.
Mrs. Brown, 2211 Fourth avenue,
this city, says: "I have been suffer
ing for the past 12 years, and have
tried everv remedy and preparation I
ever heard of to stop my suffering,
but was never successful. Kidney
complaint is a dillicult malady to
master, as every one suffering from
it will tell you; 'most of them have
constant pain, sometimes very severe,
and sometimes almost free from it,
but it never leaves one entirely. I
had severe catches or a stitch in 'my
back; these stitches render one al
most helpless for the time being. I
procured some Kid-ne-oids at M. F.
Bahnseu's drug store, and they helped
me within a week, even at my age,
antl the years 1 have had it."
Mrs. Brown's daughter says: "Noth
ing mother ever to k gave her such
juick and permanent relief, and we
are glad to recommend Kid-ne-oids to
Kid-ne-oids are put up in wooden
boxes, which contain enough for about
two weeks' treatment and sell at 50
cents at M. F. Bahnsen's drug store.

upon request b- John Morrow & Co.,

medicine, but doctors order it, be

My daughter, after being treated by
four doctors, and being given up for
