An interesting and timely publica
tion, setting forth facts about the
southern states, has just been issued
by the Southern railway. It is called
"rhe Empire of the South." and gives
a comprehensive exhibit of the devel
opment of this section of the country
in every line of activity. It contains
a discussion of the south as it was, as
it is, and as to its destiny, and treats
at considerable length the various in
terests, such as agriculture, cotton,
tobacco, iron, coal, resorts and cli
male. Chapters are devoted to each
of the states south of the Ohio ami
Potomac rivers, and east of the Mis
sissippi river. In these the early
history of the states is given ami the
important features are touched upon,
as well as the progress of the leading
cities. The author of the work, Frank
Presby, has been a student tf the
southern conditions, and with the
assistance of the exteusive organiza
tion of the Southern railway has bceu
enabled to culla'e much that will in
terest the practical man who is inter
ested or contemplates an interest in
the south. The book contains 1SI
quarto pages, each of which is illus
trated. It will be sent by mail for 15

Chicago service will be lacking in
nothing, unless it is an east-bound
train later in the afternoon, for the
accommodation of people who want
to reach Chicago during the eveniDg.
and the people in the towns east of
here who want to come to the tri-cities
to trade. The new parlor cars will
put the finishing touches on the ser
vice as it stand.
Otlicials of the D., R. I. & N. W.
railroad say that their line is succeed
ing admirably in securing a good
share of the tri-city passenger tratlii
to Clinton and Chicago. Freight
shipments have been heavier than
was anticipated. All the passenger
trains have made the schedule. Au
ditor Roach says it takes one winter
to put a track in prime condition.
When the frost comes out of the
ground the road settles and must be
resurfaced. By spring, when the tri
city route has gone through this pro
cess, its line will be as smooth as any

Vernon, the hypnotist, opened a 3
nights' engagement at Harper's thea
tre last evening. Vernon is not only
an entertainer in the finest sense, but
is in a way a lecturer. He proceeds
along sientilic lines, aiming that his
work shall be educational rather than
only mystifying or amusing. He was
greeted at his opening performance at
the opera house last night by a large
audience, and all seemed wtll pleased
with the many wonderful tests given
in hypnotism Prof. Vernon appears
to have studied his subject closely
from a scient tiie et tndpoiut. His ex
planations of the art are clearly given,
while the tests which follow forcibly
illustrate bis meaning. Tonight in
connection with his demonstrations,
Vernon will give a talk on hypnotism,
explaining what it Is, how developed,
not as a supernatural attainment, or
an unnatural gift, but as a science ac
quired by study and development of
itio mind. There was a large audi
ence present last evening, and there
is promise of a still larger attendance
this evening, when returns of the Mc-Coy-Choy
ntki light will be furnished
fro'ni the Postal wire.

PLEASES THE PEOPLE,

Fine Scad off.
Monday night of this week a new
opera house, built by (i. II. Johnston,
the gentleman who has been chosen
to promote a similar project in Rock
Island, was opened at Wausau. Wis.
It was made the society event of the
season. The theatre was packed.
The people were delighted with the
handsomely appointed building. It
was more than they bargained for.
The Wausau Pilot, in the course of au
extensive article, says of Mr. John
ston: The Pilot cannot siy too much in
praise of Mr. Johnston. He is a gen
ius in more ways thau one. He is a
,uan of great executive ability, has
dead loads of good common sense,
has the courage to follow out what he
thinks is right, even if he has to
speak bluntly al times; he never for
gets to keep his wor t, and -is a genial
well informed gentleman. Added to
all this he is one of the best scenic
artists in the country. All the scen
ery in the opera house was painted by
him, but about all that could be seen
last night was the drop curtain, be
cause the opsning attraction carried
all its own scenery.
Mr. Dunbar, chairman in behalf of
the local committee, makes the follow
ing statement: Messrs. Johnston and
Fischer bave constructed the opera
house accortling to plans ami specifi
cations in the most perfect manner,
and they have gone further, making
many valuable additions. The com
mi t tec are well pleased and entirely
satisfied. Both Messrs. Johnston and
Fischer are perfect gentlemen. They
are honest, square and perfectly relia
ble in all their dealings. So much so,
that we never asked them to give us a
guarantee of any kind. Their words
are as good as a written contract every
time, and wc would be pleaied to
recommend them to any town desir
ing an opera house."
The citizens of Wan Baa presented
Mr. Johnston a beautiful silver colonial
cotTce urn with stand and spirit lamp.
Mr. Johnston is expected in Rock
Island iu a few days to begin the can

It is certainly gratifying to the pub
lic to know of one concern iu the land
who are not afraid to le generous U
the needy and suffering. The propri
etors of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Colds have
given away over ten million trial bot
tles of this great medicine, and have
the satisfaction of knowing it has ab
solutely cured thousands of hopeless
cases. Asthma, bronchitis, hoarse

it. Call on Hartz & Ullemeyer, drug

Does It Pay to Ray Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure the
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What shall
you do? Go to a warmer and more
regular climate? Yes, if possible; if
not possible for you, then in either
case take the only remedy that has
been introduced in all civilized coun
tries with success in severe throat and
lung troubles, "Boschee'd German
Syrup." It not only heals and stim
ulates the tissues to destroy the germ
disease, but allays inllammation,
causes easy expectoration, gives a
good night's rest, and cures the pa

La Grippe is in the air. You don't have to be
exposed, as in other contagious diseases. The
germs of la grippe are everywhere at present.
In one week the wave of infection crosses a

' Foley s Honey and Tar reaches the root of the
disease. It destroys and eradicates the germs
of la grippe. It puts the system on a plane to

Foley's Honey and Tar, by absolutely curing
