14 YEARS AFTER
AN ILLINOIS FARMER GIVES
TO DR. WALSH
For the last fourteen years I have had
perfect health. I am now fifty years of
age, and I feel young, active and vigor
ous. I can do a day's work as well as a
man of 20. I owe it all to the Drs. Walsh,
the great Davenport specialists. They
cured me. They restored me to health
and strength when I thought I would
never have a well day again; in fact, I
felt as if I had not long to live. For
some years I had suffered from catarrh
and general breakdown. I was all played
out, could not work, had dizzy and faint
spells and was very nervous. I had back
ache, weak kidneys, pain in bsck of the
neck, poor appetite, gas and a heavy feel
ing in stomach, indigestion, cold hands
and feet. At night I could not sleep well
and had bad dreams. In fact, I felt like
a wreck. I never got any benefit from any
treatment until I went to the Drs. Walsh.
Goodness knows I tried enough different
kinds of treatment before I went to them.
When I called at the Drs. Walsh's office in
Davenport, at 124 West Third street, I
admit I didn't have much hope, although
I had heard so much of the Drs. Walsh.
After taking several months' treatment
I was a new man and completely restored
to heaith. Their charges were very reas
onable. CHARLES D. QUICK,
Results are the best proof of success.
You can see in Dr. Walsh's office, testi
monials from satisfied patients all over
this part of the country, including men,
women and children. Dr. Walsh has
had a large experience and great success.
He is a graduate of two medical colleges
and was formerly president of St. Anth
ony s Hospital. Bankers and business
men testify to his reliability. You can
have a thorough scientific examination
free of charge. Office hours are from 10
to 12 a. m. and 2 to 4 0 p. ra. Also on
Tuesdays and Saturday evenings from 7
to 9 p. no. On Sunday mornings from 10

RESEMBLES A MERMAID.
ff th Dugong Had Long Hair
Would Make s Real 8a Woman.
The old stories about mermaids do
not seem so Improbable after all when
one looks at a full sized dugong. Tbe
only thing it lacks to make it a real
sea woman is long hair.
This enormous fish has flippers In
stead of fins and rudimentary arms,
The flippers end in four distinct fingers
and are etartingly like the human
hand. The shoulders of this weird
marine creatnre slope In to a short but
perfectly defined neck, on which is set
a round head. The eyes are like a hu
man being's In shape and expression
but very much larger. They are set
far apart on each side of the head and
have a brown Iris swimming In a white
ball, but are lid I ess. The dugong has
no nose, but the forehead Is broad and
well developed, and while the mouth
Is "fishy" In shape there la a distinct
Tbe dugong is twice tbe height of a
tall man when It Is full grown, and a
mother dugong moving about through
tbe water holds ber baby tenderly In
her "arms" pressed to her breast, Just
as a human mother does.
Glimpses of this strange inhabitant
of the sen no doubt gave rise to the
old time belief In mermaids. Tbe

Why They Should Be Put Out of Deere
During ths Night.
In bis random suggestions to his
students, printed In the Medics I Rec
ord, Robert H. M. Dawbarn. U. D.
tella why It Is considered best not te
keep flowers or growing plants In a
sickroom at night Flowers give off
moisture taken up from tbe soil; hence
air becomes somewhat humid if many
particularly growing plants are kept
in the room. Flowers having a meth
od of breathing, they use up the oxy
gen aa human beings do and In ex
change give off carbonic dioxide as
Tbe action of sunlight npon the
stems, leaves and all green part of
flowers is to store carbonic dioxide
within the plants and release oxygen.
Thus In daylight there la a fair bal
ance between tbe carbonic dioxide and
the oxygen given and taken, leaving
neither good nor ill results. But dur
ing tbe entire night the plant contin
ues to breathe, and until the return of
daylight the oxygen Is used just like

When you consider the amount it
is possible to save, together with the
advantage of being permitted to
choose virtually anything, surely it
is wise economy to buy now.
Shop during the cool hours of the
room, thus leaving less oxygen for the
use of the Invalid. Therefor the
standing order to remove all plants
and flowers at night ls based npon the
facts of plant physiology and is right.
Chateaubriand's Early Struggles.
A new discovery has been made
about Chateaubriand nothing less
than that he once sold stockings on
commission. It was In 1790, when he
was still an officer In the royal serv
ice, lie had a debt of honor, amount
ing to 200. He wrote to a distant
relative, one La Morandais, who man
ufactured stockings m Switzerland,
appealing for help on the ground that
he must either pay that debt or blow
bis brains out. La Morandais, instead
of sending him money, sent him 169
dosen pairs of stockings, offering him
a liberal commission If be would sell
them among his distinguished friends.
He gratefully accepted the offer and
succeeded in disposing of the mer
chandise. There is reason to believe
that be managed to plant a good deal
of It on tbe stores department of bis
