fractions of those laws and the usu

It is a law if you overeat that you
will suffer. It is a law that if you
fall down in front of a moving train
you will suffer. And all of the dis
eases that afflict mankind come from
the conscious or unconscious infrac
tion of some one of the laws that
govern the universe. These diseases
may be heriditary or acquired. They
may be the result of law breaking
by home ancestor in the remote past.
For the "Sins of the Father Are Vis
ited Upon the Children even unto the
Third and Fourth Generation." But
if nature provides a penalty for the
infraction of the least of her laws
bhe has also provided a remedy. For
years I have made a careful study of
disease, its cause and effect. And I
Lave made a wonderful discovery.
I have discovered that nature's
remedy for a very large number of
diseases is electricity. I use my
elecrodes upon the nerve centers of
the human system and nature does
the rest. If you are suffering from
any Female Weakness, have a tumor,
cancer or goitre, a victim of kidney
or liver troubles, consumption, loss

whether or not I can be of assistance
to you, or whether your disease is in

Maggie llines was subjected to an
other remarkable operation last
week. She had the. habit of eating
her own hair, which Hogged in her
stomach, necessitating the use of the
surgeon's knife in its removal. Mag
gie is an orphan. Father Niennann
saw that the sister, of which there
were several, were given good homes.
The Schebler and Werthmann fam
ilies looked after them. Some three
or four years ago Maggie was oper
ated. upon by Dr. W. S. Allen, and a
matted ball of hair, that completely
filled her stomach, was extracted at
St. Luke's hospital. She recovered
from the operation nicely and was
thought to be cured, l'ut the habit
with her was second nature. Like
tnose who gnaw their ringer nails,
Maggie would pluck a hair from her
head and nibble nt it as though it
were a tidbit. The result was that
she grew ill some time ago and was
sent to Morbonia hospital for treat
ment. There it was discovered that
she was back at her edd habit again.
Dr. K. S. 1'owman diagonsed the,
case and performed the operation
last Thursday, taking from her stom
ach a ball of snarled ami tangled
hair of an astonishing size. Still an
other mass remains in the bowels
which will necessitate a second oper
ation in about ten days. According
to scientific authority only eight
cases of the kind have been known,
in only three of which the operation
has been a success. The operation
performed upon Miss llines several
years ago by Dr. Allen was exploited
far and wide at the time as lx'ing
unique in surgical practice. Maggie
is said to be recovering nicely from
the operation. It being the second
one. she evidently is becoming used to
The police on the Kock Island side
of the river had an interesting chase
early yesterday morning1 after a col
ored man wanted for doing1 up a Dav
enport policeman u"hd getting away
with his gun. The fugitive crossed
to Kock Island tin the Crescent bridge,
and although trace of him was secur
ed and followed through the city, he
escaped. The officer who allowed
the colored man to get the lest of
him was Kd. Itrehmer. About 4
o'clock yesterday morning the officer
met the colored man, who. was a
powerful fellow and of decidedly sus
picious appearance. The latter did
not give a very coherent account of
himself and Itrehmer decided to take
him to the station. While passing
an alley the prisoner requested that
his captor take him through it. but
the latter refused. The colored man
started to turn and the officer shov
ed him back. Then the prisoner
clinched. The officer saw the flash
of a razor and broke away just in
time, receiving a slight cut on the
face. lief ore the darkey could re
cover llrehmer swung his club and
knocked him down. Then, instead of
following up his advantage, the of
ficer closed in anil the prisoner again
grappled him around the l?ijs.
While the officer was trying to get a
chance to use his club the negro got
hold of his gun and pulling it out
reversed the situation by shoving it
up under ISrehmer's chin. The col
ored man. of course, got away, cover
ing the officer with his own gun till
out of reach. He then came on
across the bridge, meeting en route
a couple of men. The latter say he
had a gun in each hand, showing
that he hail one of his own. and he
told the others to get out of the way,
which they did.

Have you been or do you know anyone who has been in a living hell of tor
ture with a skin disease? Dispair usually seizes those so afflicted. Many imagine
it is in the blood and too subtle to cure. Doctors have stood baffled and helpless
against Eczema. Half of them think its worte forms are blood poison. Ninety
nine cases out of a hundred of manifestations on the skin are purely local AV.V
disease not HLOOD disease. Healthy blooded people break out as often as any
one, the blood has nothing to do with it in most cases. It is a parasite in the skin
that spreads. This prescription is today completely clearing away quickly too
and permanently Curing every trace of such parasitic trouble and leaves the skin
soft, healthy and perfect. Call on the above druggist and investigate the unques
