except mil i -rest ion and' stomach trou

nation are afflicted.
The remedy is in the form of pleas

rest and assistance suflicicnt to enable
it to recover its normal strength. This
is the reason so many pretended cures
have signally failed; they do not
furnish the digestive power which is
the one thing above all others that
the stomach of the dyspeptic lacks
and unless that lack is supplied, it is
waste of time to attempt to restore
the enfeebled stomach by means of
tonics," "stomach bitters" and

from their use.

It has been suggested that lightning

In one part of town the people are
beginning to complain because the one
to wbom their welfare is entrusted
does not lind at least one additional
loafing place such as will take him
over a different route occasionally in
jroing to and from tbe place of rest
ing. Further, they suggest it be otT
the street car Hue, for while Phil has
been explicit in his orders about riding
in street cars too much this memlier
of the band believes in getting there
swiftly, and havinjr more time to rest
A stranger of the tramp persuasion
crossed Moline avenue to the Rock
Island depot. There stood a brownie.
The stranger had been sampling the
extract of bops until lie could just
navigate, much less articulate, and
approaching the little man to whom
Mavor McConochie has loaned a star,
and who braced himself to meet the
occasion,, tbe stranger between hic
coughs, asked as to tbe location of
the other side of the street.
"Why," replied the brownie, with
apparent pride in- his ability to an
swer promptly, "its over there,"
pointing with his billy to indicate the
direction at tbe same time. Then
walking off 10 paces, the little man
glanced scornfully over his shoulder
at his interrogator.
Hut, responded the stranger, as
he stairsrercd up to where the brownie
stood, a man over there just told me
it was over here.
The little man with the stamp of
the Duke of Argyle upon his brow-
looked puz.led. He pondered a min
ute, and then asked the stranger how
lonr he would be in town. He was
told about two hours. "Then if vou
will wait around here about that
lenjrth of time I will jro down to head
quarters and ask Phil. I don't re me i n
ber any thing in the instructions about
that, but you may have to wait a few
minutes for me, for I must walk both
ways, as orders forbid ruling on cars
when yon can just as well walk.
So saying the funny Utile man
trotted off down town in quest of
Phil and the desired information.
