navigation and thinks the government
greatly at fault in fallowing our grent
waterway to remain ia the present tie

There was a sufficient flow of water for
unobstructid navigation, if it bait only

without them ihi thallows would be
wholly impassible. But there are still
scores of ehoaU which the government
has neglected to rem wi. At nly a few
places were forces of men at wortt upon
the improvement of the channel The
example cf France in providing facilities
for commercial intercourse affords an in
structive lesson to the United States In
France, from the dajs of the great Van
ban, an ad q iate expenditure of public
wealth has hastened to completion every
work tht promoted ihe nitional interest.
But in this country a false system delays
the usefulness and increases the cost of
public improvements. In consequence
of tbe irregularity and insufficiency of
the congressional appropriations, works
commenced by the government some
times fall into partial dtcy before they
can be finished. Oar present impolicy
renders tbe upper Mitsissippi almost un
navigablo at low stages of water, deprives
our great waterway of its vast usfulnef s
as a means of transportation and as a
regulator of railroid freights, and debars
the'eities oa its banks from the prosper

create. A statesmanship broad as the

mistaken conceptions of public economy

piece without a plot but replete with
magnificent scenery. The several scenes
are located ia Elfl nd and afford excliett

with local applica'ions, as the? cannot
reach tbe teat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or cocetiiu;iontl di.-ease, and in
order to cure it you hae to Uke internal
remedies. Hill's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and eels diree'ly on the blood
snd mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is co quack med'c:ne. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
ibis country for years; and is a regular
prescription It is composed of the beet
tonics knin. combined wi'h tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The pirfect conibina

I have been a great sufferer from
catarrh for - over ten years; had it very
bad, could hardly breathe. Some nights
I could not sleep and had to walk the
floor. I purchased Ely's Cream Balm
and am using it freely, it is working a
cure surely. I have advised several
friends to use it acd with happy results
mevervcase. It is tbe medicine above
all others for caterrb, snd it is worth iU
weight in gold I thank God I hnve
found a remedy I can use with safety and
that does all that is cliinid of it. It is
curing my det-tcess. B. W. Sperry

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has cometo
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
Catarrh Diseases of Woman
These physicians also guar
antee to stop any pain in the
body in from three to five min
utes without the use of medi
cine. Remember it costs noth
ing to see these doctors and
find out what your troubles
are, and if you can be cured
they will take your case, but if
vou can't, then thev will
you so. No matter what your
sn-jviicsu lb, go ana get relieved
or find out if you can be cured.
