A man named McKee, of Rockfor), is
trying to work np a re-organ zlinn of
an Inter state base ball league out of

league composed something like this:
Rockforrt. Joliet. Peoria, Q jincy, Dit
enport, Keokuk. Burl'ngtou. andei'her
Oltumwa or Cedar Rapids, four Iowa
and four Illinois Iowds being represented.
Mr. McKee pu's the expenditures

fornia has, it is said, become a
convert of spiritualism. The
senator is rich enough to be
lieve anything he likes. It
will be interesting, though, to
ascertain whether the spirits
are urging him to make the
race for president on the alli
ance ticket. 1 he best thimr
friends, and at the same time that the senator can do, if he
has made up his mind to run,
is to take Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure with
diligence. This great remedy
is the best thing for the voice
that was ever put on the mar
ket. It contains no poiso. but
is composed of pure and sim
ple materials that act at once
and relieve the luntrs of all
ne administered a severe re
buke to those who refused to
stand by him to the end.
Springer is an indefatigable
worker and by his action in
this struggle he has shown the
country that he possesses bet
ter metal than he has yet been
credited with. He has agreat
future before him if he will
but take care of himself. To trouble. For bronchial difti-
this end let him see that he
preserves his health. Most
members of congress give way
to some form of pulmonarv
trouble.' If Mr. Springer will
take Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Cure he will es
cape all danger from this
source. This great remedy is
the best thing in the world for
coughs, colds and every form
of disease that attacks the re
spiratory organs. This makes
it invaluable for men who
have to talk in public, especial
ly in open air. The remedy
contains no opiate, so that it
can be taken at any time with
out fear of subsequent danger.
It will cure all throat trouble
from simple hoarseness to the
worst form of bronchitis, You
can get it of any druggist, but
be sure to ask for Reid's, and
take no other. -.

culties it is without a rival. It
contains no opium so that it
dees not paralyze the digest
tion but is relaxing, stimulat
ing soothing and healing. Of
all cough remedies it is the
only one of which this can be
said. Aged persons will find
this of the greatest assistance
for it enables the system to
throw off the maladies that
are so fatal in old age. In
cases of pneumonia it acts
every time with a certainty
that is marvelous. It has re
peated!' brought health to
people whom the medical fac
ulty had pronounced to be be
yond all hope. When you ask
for this great remedy at your
drug store be particular and
see that the druggist gives you

with something that he says is
just as ;ood.
