There can be no question about my Method being the best, simplest
and only soothing and stimulating treatment for the cure of Rup
ture. Thousands and thousands of people whom I have permanently
cjred willingly testify to the -jth of this claim. I guarantee to cure
you without pain, danger, cutting or detention from business.. I am
able to make this statement aftsr haviig treated cases which some
Of the most learned physicians of the Unitsd States had pronounced
I want every ruptured per
son who reads this to come
and have a talk with me. It
will not cost you a penny. I
will explain to you how you
can be permanently cured of
Rupture. It makes no differ
ence how skeptical you may ha.
I vin produce evidence to
convince you that I am able
to give you a permanent cure
and forever rid you of a life
No pay will be received by
me until the patient la satis
fied he is cured and can stand
any kind of a test. There is
no other doctor or combina
tion of doctors or medical in
stitute that will treat Rupture
on the above proposition.
A larpe number of patients
have deposited the fee in the
Davenport Union Savings
. Bank, and thus far every dol
lar so deposited has by the
patient's order been 'turned
over to me within 60 days,
which is the time required to
cure any case.
I am the discoverer of the "Fidelity" Rupture Cure Method which Is
registered In the United States Patent Office. I have done more to
systemlze and reduce to practice a harmless and permanent cure for
Rupture than any other living physician. I have educated, by giving .
special courses of Instruction, several hundred physicians who are
row uslnsr my treatment In all carts of the world. For 12 years I have
devoted by entire professional attention to this specialty, and without -
doubt have examined and treated more ruptured people than any
physician In the world.
If you are afflicted with Hydrocele and have been treated without
success, don't pet discouraged and let the disease run on. I will guar
antee to cure you quickly and permanently so that ft recurrence of
tha trouble is absolutely impossible. No pain, danger or cutting.
I have cured many persons In and about Davenport; the following

DUCK SHOOTING OVER:
SNIPE ARE ON HAND
The spring duck shooting has pro
ven to most of the hunters an entire
disappointment or very: unsatisfac
tory.. Some shooting was to be had
at intervals when the weather was
right, but to make certain of a bag
the hunter was compiled to stay on
the ground for a week or more. The
greater part of the llight has passed,
for good, and it is not presumeJ that
any cold wave likely to come will be
sufficient to send them south again.
Snipe have begun to put in an ap
pearance, and with the low ground in
the condition it is they should remain
with Us for a while. The snipe while
not exactly constructed along the
lines to resist the cold seems to be a
hardy fellow, and old hunters say that
once he has come north it takes a
tremendous drop in the temperature
to send hi in south. He probably hates
to think of the fligbt, not being so
well equipped for long drawn out
trips as is the duck. During cold
snaps he stays close to the tall grass
and weeds that border the edge of the
open water or small running streams,
.wliere-the undergrowth has prevented
the ground from freezing, ami where
he ' can secure at least' scanty forage
until' the. weather permits', a wider
range" for food.

TAfpES OF THEATRE
"The Manxman" as the attraction
at the Illinois last evening was greet
ed by a fair audience in spite of the
overwhelming interest in the election
returns which naturally kept many
away who would otherwise have seen
the play. Those who attended were
well repaid, for the production was
one of the prettiest of its kind that
has been seen here this season, .lames
O'Neill, as Pete Quilliam, fully sus
tained his reputation and he was ac
corded good support.
There is something to amuse, some
thing to instruct, something to enter
tain, something to please, but noth
ing to offend or bore in the newest
"A Breezy Time," at the Illinois, Sun
day, April 12.
An excellent production of Marie
Corelli's famous novel, "Thelma." will
be presented at the Illinois, Friday,
April 10. The. beautiful scenery and
other stage effects would alone make
th.e. attraction worthy of the patron
age of theatregoers everywhere, ami
Aiden Benedict, the owner of the com
pany deserves much praist; jor the re
ally, superb surroundings' wit h which
he has provided this attraction. The
book is divided into thre parts, the
play into four. The first act "The
Iind of Ihe Midnight Sun," shows the
Altcn Fjord in northern Ncrway in
miilsumer, the sun still glowing in the
heavens although it is after midnight.
The second act gives a view of the
famous Norwegian waterfall Njedez
gorze, where Sir Phillip declares his
love for the beautiful rose of the
northern ft. rest. The third act called
"The Land of Mockery," is laid in
London. England, w here 'I helma's
pure spirit sickens at the petty jeal
ousies, the deceit and vain mockery
to be found any where in the whirl f
modern socallcd society. The last act
called,, "The Land of the Long Shad
ow" takes the audience again to the
Altcn Fjord, now in the winter time
without sun. and devoid of light save
that given by the Aurora Borealis.
The scene is the exterior of the
bonde's house, being the same as that
of the first act. but the ro.-es are dead,
the green foliage is gone and the
earth is mantled with snow; here is
seen the "Rainbow Bridge" and an
electric snow storm is introduced,
which is claimed to be one of the
most realistic scenes ever presented
tipon'any stage. The acting of the
company is said to be excellent and
the wardrobes worn by the ladies to
be tlve 'equal of that worn in any of
the larger productions.
The big melodramatic sensation.
"The Moonyhiner'M Daughter," has
made a hit everywhere presented, and
there is every indication (if a general
interest being taken in the event, as
it is a play out of the ordinary, and
embraces a series of sensational fea
tures as well as a pretty love story.
This play is away from the conven
tional and stereotyped melodrama-.
The comely element is of the breezy
sort and a general dash assists in
the action. Every stick of scenery is
carried by the management for this
production, as it requires massive and
pie-turcpie environment for a suc
cessful interpretation. The play
alxiunds in specialties and the fam
ous Moonshiner's quartet is a big fea
ture. A most thrilling and exciting
fijht takes place between moonshin
ers and revenue officers during the
raid on the still. "The Moonshiner's
Daughter" will be presented at the
Illinois Monday. April 13.
The regular annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Rock Island Sav
ings bank for the election of nine di
