What Is the Liquor Disease?
It Is a condition where the nerve cells have become trained re
need alcohol. And unless they are fed with alcohol they rebel
and refuse to control the muscles and brain cells.
The "'craving" for drink is not the disease. It is simply the
symptom of the disease, just as a cough is a symptom and not, In
itself, a disease.
When tbe disease Is cured tbe craving and appetite for drink
disappear, just as a cough disappears when the cause of the
cough is removed.
The Keeley Remedies Cure
Dr. Leslie E. Keeley discovered first the real nature of tbe
liquor disease, and next a remedy that would cure it.
The Keeley remedies are simply nerve tonics that remove the
artificial alcohol appetite of the nerve cells and restore them M
their healthy, normal condition.
When this is done the man has no longer any need or desire
In the last 32 years 400,000 men have been cured of the liquor
disease by the Keeley method.
The effect of the Keeley remedies is to absolutely destroy the
craving and appetite for drink. The man who takes the treat
ment is no longer called on to fight an appetite. Because the
desire and necessity for alcohol are completely gone.
We also cure Opium, Morphine and other drug addictions.
The drug is withdrawn gradually and there Is no shock, col
lapse, prostration or sickness. Full particulars in plain, sealed

Jr-eona, ill., Aug. 6. After nearly
17 years of service as a member of the
state mining board, for a consider
able portion of that time as its presi
dent, Richard Neweam of this city has
forwarded to Governor Deneen his
resignation, to take efrect at the pleas
ure of the governor. This letter was
forwarded to the governor on Thurs
day and it was with extreme regret
that Mr. Neweam dictated tbe lines
that marked his severance with the
work he has so long been associated
with. It was only the fact that he is a
seriously sick man that led him to
send in his resignation.
At his home last night Thomas
Newsam, son of the president, said
that his father's health has been
such for some time that he knew he
could not continue as head of the
