hanstire attention by Governor flower
in his message. He thinks that most of
the $3,700,000 now t pent ia highwaya in
the atate it wasted through bad methods
of work. Governor Bill began this agi
tt ion and an esteemed contemporary
pronounces it "the very best thine he
did in all hit year as chief magistrate."
Should the Illinois legislature have
time for such matters, the Peoria Herald
wisely suggests, it might with .ropriety
repeal the sparrow scalping act of 1801
No food has come of that law. Ttere
are doubtless more sparrows in Spring
field than have been killed in two years
under the sparrow bounty act. If there
mast be a bounty given for scalps let it
be placed ou rat scalps or the scalps of
the white ants that infest the basement
of the state b"use.

pride to the fact that the United Slates

KottiDg In current politics is to .mus

tors to whistle from both sides of their
mouths when confronted by the senator
One day, if the cbacces teem in favor
of the democrats controlling the state,
ur republican contemporaries philosoph
ically declare that this is best for the re
publican party and just what it most de
sired. The next day, when things pick
up in favor cf the republicans, our ver
satile brethren bebm with complacent n
ultaiion that the grand old party is B'.ill
in the rinsr and the country is s'.ill safe.
Tie New Y rk Tribune whistles a varia
tion on this medley by protesting that
the republic' n pirty hopes that
the democrats will control the senate, but
insists that should the party see an op
portunity to prevent the democrats from
securing that control, patriotism will
prompt it to make the sacrifice!
Such beautiful self-abnegation has not
been known since Johnny ale his sister's
gingerbread to save her the stomach
ache. The erand old party's attitude as it per
forms this melancholy whistling feat is
strikingly suggestive of the experience of
Lowell's rustic hero who
"Mord on one foot fast.
And then he stood o. t'other;
And on which one he felt the watt.

A Queer Custom.
A mediaeval custom prevails in Freiberg,
in Breisgau. This is observed on the
birthday of the reigning grand duke of
Baden, and consists of a foolhardy trip to
the topmost part of the tower of the min
ster. It is a dangerous enterprise, for the
tower is 400 feet high, and the ascent is
made from' the exterior of the building.
The steeplejacks in their ascent have to
leap from stone to stone, often a yard apart,
and one false step on the narrow ledges
would be death. At the topmost pinnacle
pistol shots announce that the climbers
have succeeded. Then an immense gilded
star revolves and the descent ia begun.
Each man receives as a reward the sum of
five marks from the state and asumptuous
On the occasion of the sixty-sixth birth
day of the grand duke of Baden, three
men undertook the ascent. One of them
on arriving at a projecting bar of iron,
halfway up, went through an acrobatic
performance. This was before an immense
crowd of astonished spectators. He twisted
and twirled about as if he were but within
a few feet of the earth. London News.

years came into the office of Dr. Wilson.
of the Scott Midic&l institute. She said:
"Doctor, I lon't know whether you

the past 20 jears I did aot breathe
through my nose. In all that length of
time I did not get any permanent relief
and I thought ny case hopehss when I
vihittd Dr. Wils-jn of the Scott Medical
Institute. I had dull headache oyer the
eyes, my nose was bo filled up I could
not breathe and I had a constant dis
chbrgi: of nucu lus in'o my throat. I wub
troubled with deafness, and at times I
whs very dizzy. My stomsch bothered
me and in fict I was generally debilut
ed. I was cant idly told I had catarrh
and al.o nasal polypii. I know I had
some erowih in my nose, for at times
the disease wcu d trouble me fo bad that
ihe polypii would bt quite plain to be teen.
Well, I was told it would be necessary
to have the obstruction removed from
my nose and a abort treatment for ca
carrh would entirely cure me. I under
went the operation, which was entirely
without pain, and after two treatments I
cculd brea'he as well as the day I was
born. I had 19 or 20 lamps or pieces
of polypii removed from my nose most
of tbeco being two or three times as
large as an ordinary bean. This is no
"say so." I was not under the influence
of an erathetic. I saw them removed
I counted them and they are still prt
served at the offie, where they may be
seen." Now this took place fully six
weeks ago and through all the wet and
cold weather that has been since I have
bad no return of my trouble. I am well
and cured. Dr. Wilson told me I could
be cured, and what is more I am cured."
Mr. Ober lives, as stated, in the Ma
sonic Temple, corner Third and Brsdy
streets, Davenport, Iowa, and will be
pieased to talk to any person in regard
to his wonderful cure.

WHY THEY SUCCEED.
The rcmarkab'e success which the
Scott Medical institute has achieved in
every department of its practice has cre
ated a good deal of comment not only
among tbe people who are bill eted with
chronic diseases, but also amonj their
brother prac'i'ionere and the question is
often asked, ' What is the cause of this
large measure of success?' The answer
my be stated in a few words. In the
first place the physicians of the Scott
Medical institute are tkiiled men.
In the serord place they give their
whole time to their patients and to their
pofession. When they are not in the
consultation room in attendance upon
their pttienls they are discusi-ing the pe
culiar features f individual cases. so that
they my be reidy to apply the result of
their deliberations in te consulting
This is the whole eecret of their suc
cess. With them the science oT medicine, is a
constant erowth, and every cafe a special
study. Not a poict that has any pnssible
bearing on the cse in hind is over
looked. This is the reason that they sue- j
ceed where others fail.
