There lias-been for some tijiie ptft
a growing sentiment among the vet
erans of the civil war iu this city and
elsewhere against the system uon
which the Illinois Soldiers and Sail
ors' home at Qui wy- is conducted.
I'nder the arrangements in force the
old sol liers when placed in the insti
tution must be separated front their
wives. Many of those who deserve
the benetits of the institution would
rather part with life itself than be
separateil from their aged -helpmeet.
A .movement has been started here
looking to a remedy, as the following
resolution will explain: ' ?

cit of liock Island. 111., on the even

resolution was presented and unani
Kesolxed. That a committee of three
be appointed by the commander to
draft a memorial to the legislature
of the state of Illinois, in behalf of
our aged comrades and their wives,
suggesting changes and modifications
for the regulation anil management
of our state soldiers homes. We be
lieve same will be beneficial to the
comrades and their wives and with no
additional expense to the state. We,
as such committee, take pleasure in
submitting to your honorable bodies,
the following resolution, knowing the
moderation and justice of our re
(inst. asking to have it referred to
the proper committees, and believing
it will receive favorable considera
tion: The Cottage System.
Whereas, It has come to our knowl
edge that a number of states in the
union, have on their statute book:;
certain laws, known as the cottage
system for the regulation, govern
ment and control of their state sol
diers homes, anil that same are iu
successful operation and control
wherever tried, and after a thorough
investigation we heartily en.lorse this
system, which is not only moral, ju
dicious and humane but is also bene
ficial and economical, and has a tend
ency that is noticeable to restrain
and refine the habits and character of
the veterans. This system admits
together all poor, unfortunate old
veterans and their wives who have
stood by their side through all the
ups and downs and vicissitudes of
life, patiently and heroically fighting
life's" battles, sharing his joys and
sorrows, iu prosjerity and adversity,
in sunshine and storm, until sickness
and misfortune through the infirm
ities of years has made it impossible
to longer continue the unequal strug

through necessity must surrender to
the inevitable ami appeal to the char
ity of the state and nation whom the
veteran gave the best years of his life
to defend, and le admitted to the

generous commonwealth in a home

And. Whereas, The great state of
Illinois never having failed in any
great emergency either in war or
peace, of whom we are justly proud,
a state that has always led the van
and is second to none in her patriot

old ship of state safely through the

diers to the front in defense of the

Doctor Wray's Electro-Vapor Catarrh
TreatmentIts Wonderful Cures:
It cures Catarrh. It cures Deafness.
It cures Huy Fever. It cures Asthma.
In cures Incipient Consumption. It
cures Stomach, Liver and Kidney
troubles. It cures Neurasthenia. It
cures all diseases that originate In Ca
tarrh! therefore It cures nearly one
half of the diseases which the human
family are afflicted with.
Catarj-h Is one of the most destruc
tive and death dealing diseases. It
Is a hydra-headed monster.
It commences In the nasal passages.
It covers the mucuos lining. of the
nose and throat, and enters the eus
tachian tube, and penetrates the mid
dle ear. It causes congestion upon
the sensitive auditory nerve until It
quivers with every imaginary sound
that was ever heard on earth, such as
Insects buzzing, engines screeching,
steam escaping, cataracts roaring, all
mingling and never ceasing. Then
tomes impaired hearing, and finally
total deafness, but thi terrible dis
ease goes on, reaching down Into the
bronchial tubes, causing a tickling In
the throat and all the painful and con
stant cough which is the unmistakable
knell of death.
The latest and greatest of all dis
coveries Is the Doctor Wray Electro
Vapor Treatment. There is no better
way to find out how It cures chronic
diseases than to try it.
Remember there is no time to lose
as It Is the only known treatment in
the world that will relieve the sys
tem of its greatest enemy.
