This attempt to emharr4ss the present

work an injury to the order, I would not

As to the a lt ge-1 claim of II. M. Ireland,
attorney. Ly!n, III, I know cothicsr,
haviiit: never seen oac or received the
slightest intimation that an indebtedness
to him on the part ef the order was
claimed. Dr George W. Ciemk-nen. ex
head physician, presented to the boaid of
directors his bill which w s
paid in full December 19,
1890. Subsequently becoming dis
gruntled from the fact that a settlement
had been mada with his predecessor. Dr.
P. L. McKinnie, he brought suit in the
Whiteside county circuit court for the
sum of S3 175 on the ground that his
services were as valuable to the order as
those rendered by Dr. McKinnie who
bad received in settlement made with
him the fees provided by the fundamental
law for the head physician, and to which
he was entitled, notwithstanding that he,
Clendenen had contracted to discharge
the duties of his office at a salary of f 100
per month uader which agreement every
cent due him has been paid. Thus dwin
dles this mountain of indebtedness to a
mere bagatelle, which the present board
of directors are entirely capable of ad
justing and as I believe to the entire sat
isfaction of the order at large, and with
out serious depletion of its eeneral fund.

Catarrh Can't be Cared

reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and sets riirectl? on tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is to quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
ibis country fcr years; and is a regular
prescription It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. Ths perfect combina
