Trunk Went Astray. For two davs
there has been a trunk mystery at tlv?
St. James hotel which was only solved
yesterday afternoon. Wednesday night
a traveling salesman for a large East
ern cloak house, who is stopping at
the hotel, gave orders to Charles
Jones, the colored porter, to have a
large sample trunk containing a num
ber of suits and cloaks, delivered at 7
o'clock Thursday morning to Sol Mor
itz store, known as The Hub. The
trunk at the time was in the store
room at the St. James. This porter,
states that on the same night, he turn
ed the trunk over to Bert Shaw, driver
of one of the Jager express wagon?,
with instructions to leave it at The
Hub. Thursday morning the trunk in
question failed to arrive at the store
and when the traveling salesman com
plained to the porter about its non-delivery,
the latter stated he had turned
it over to the expressman. The latter
was next located and denied that he
had been given the trunk. In the mea t-
time the trunk had disappeared as mys
teriously as if the earth had opened
and swallowed it up. Yesterday after
noon the police learned that the porter
instead of having given the trunk to
Mr. Shaw, had turned it over to one of
the men employed by Robb's express
of Rock Island and that the latter had

We were successful in every sense of the word. In fact, our success
has been so phenomenal that some say we are naturally lucky. Yes,
lucky in having the knowledge and skill to do all we claimed, but it took
years of hard work and study to get that knowledge and skill. It is easy
for us now; we could not make a botch of your case if we wanted to. We

health and vigor for you if you have not delayed too long. While we
have cured many cases that were given up as hopeless as were told that
there was no relief for them this sile of the grave, we have never given
any false hope or promised anything that our experience caused us to
believe was impossible. While our treatment is entirely different from
others it gives wonderfully quick ,-eiief, it is always easy to take and
does not leave any bad after effects.
