The Shelbyville Leader seems dis
posed to resent the conduct of the
Sentinel-Democrat in what it is
pleased to call "again wrapping the
mantle of greatness" about Col. XV.
K. Morrison, and says that "while he
may be all right now, he has not so
declared himself." It is not neces
sary for such men as Col. Morrison to
declare themselves; the demccratic
platform was never made that Mr.
Morrison could not stand upon, and
when the national convention speaks,
if the result of its deliberations be
different from his own, he is silent.
In 18U6 Col. Morrison did not approve
of the 16 to 1 idea, but he was thor
oughly in favor of silver coinage, and
would have every dollar contain a
dollar's worth of silver. He did not
sulk in bis tent, however, during that

They have done a great deal of good
for a vast number of people here in

names and addresses of these people
from time to time, and again refer you
to George Downing, 909 Seventh ave
nue, who has lived in Rock-Island for
fortv years, and says:
'Two years ago I had a fall and
struck my back on a step, injuring it
badly, i" thought I had cured it en
tirely and for several months 1 felt all
rijrht. but about a year ago it began
to bother me considerably. At first I
paid no attention to it, but it became
so bad I could scarcely get about. The
lameness was across the small of my
back in the region of the kidneys; I
took medicine and used ointments of
different kinds externally and also
plasters, but none of them did me
any jrood whatever. I heard about
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids and thought I
would give them a trial, although I
had little faith in patent medicine. I
jrot a box at Bahnsen's drug store and
began to use them as directed. I be.
gan to get better in a day or so after
taking Kid-ne-oids. and lean say they
are the only things I ever tried that
gave me any relief. I am convinced
that my kidneys were affected, and
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids are certainly the
thing that will cure kidney trouble."
