There are three important times in

then bis personal importance is over

Senator Crawfobd. t,f this district

The Illinois legislature, suggests the
Springfield Register, should change the
libel law to read as follows: No prose
cation for libel, either civil or criminal
shall be maintained against a publisher
of a paper, unless an opportunity be first
given to such publisher to retract or cor
rect the same, and if such retraction or
correction be made as fully and publicly
as the libelous article, this (hull be a
complete defense, unless malice be
proven by the prosecution. Many of the
states have this Uw and it works admira

Have treasury officials been redeem
counte feit monej ? Such is the natural
presumption afttr retdint? a special re
port t bmitted ly Tresurer N beker to
Secretary Foa-r Inst wee . This report
shows that the amount paid out by the
treasurer in redemption of $500 notes,
series of 1874. exceeds by S54 000 the
total amount of tt it series, whereas ti s
the CH&e that the amount paid out for the
redemption of any series of notes is al
ways less than the total amount issued oi
that series, for the very natural reason
that many notes are burned up or lost
where they are never found. And what
adds to the probability of counterfeit
notes having been redeemed by treasury
officials with good and lawf 1 money is
the fact that there was a dmgerous coun
terfeit $500 note known i have been put
in circulation about 1874. Treasurer
Nebeker endeavors to cxulain by say
ing that tbrougn an error notes of another
series may have been counted as in that
of 1874, and expresses the opinion that
this fact will be clearly shown when the
series of 1875 shall have all been pre
sented for redemption. It is very natural
that Mr. Nebeker should try to make
this explanation, as Mr. Cleveland's sec

A few weeks ag- a young lady of un

of the Scott Medical institute. She said:

the past 20 years I did not breathe
through my nose. In all tha'. length of
time I did not get any pcrmaient relief
and I thought my case hopnipfg when I
visited Dr. Wilson of the Scott Medical
Institute. I had dull heariaefce oyer the
eyes, my nose was so filled up I could
not breathe and I had a conitant dis
charge of muruous in'o m throat. I was
troubled with deafness, and at. times I
was very dizzy. My atom- c 1 bothered
me and in fact I was gf Derail v debillat
ed. I was candirtlv lold I hidcatrrh
and also nasal polypii. I know I had
some growth in mv nose, for at times
the disease would trouble me e bad tha
tbe polypii would be quite plain to be teen.
Well. I was told it wou'd be necet-sarv
to bave the obstruction removed from
my noso and a short treatment for ca
earth would entirely cure me. I unde:
went the operation, which was entirely
without pain, and after two treatments I
could brea he as well as the day I was
born . I had It or 20 lumps or pieces
of polypii remoyed from my nose most
ot them being: two or three ' times as
large as an ordinary bean. This - is no
"say to." . I was not under the inflaence
ef an ateeuhetic I saw them remeved.
I counted them and they are stiil pr

seen.". Now this took place fully six
weeks ago and through all the wet and
cold weather that baa been since I bave

be cured, and what is more I am cured."

WHY THEY SUCCEED.
The remarkable 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 the people who are tfflicted with
chronic diseases, but also among their
brother praciiioners and tbe question is
often asked, 'Whit is the cause of this
Urge measure of succest?' The answer
may be stated in a few words. In the
first place the physicians of the Scott
Medical institute are skilled men.
In the secocd place they give their
whole time to tbetr patients and to their
p ofession. When they are not in the
consultation room in attendance upon
their patients they are discussing the pe
culiar features ef individual cases, so that
they may be ready to apply the result of
their deliberations in tie consulting
This ia tbe whole secret of their suc
cess. With them the science of medicine is a
constant growth, and every case a special
study. Not a point that has any possible
bearing on the esse in hand is over
looked This is tbe reason that they suc
ceed where others fail.
Chronic diseases quire chronic treat
ment. Your trouble lias been years com
ing on you. It has invaded every part ot
your system, weaken d and reduced you.
Do you expect to be cured in a week or a
month? Be reasonable, we are not per
forming miracles simply applying sci
ence to the practice of medicine.

We make this standing offer. So many
so-called "cures" are brought before the
public that are valuless and an impoci

generous offer to the public. It is almost
impossible to ecme to our office during
office hours and not tnd from one to ten

of the Scott Medical Institute invite every

Manager "Xate" Salsbury says that when
he was last acroes the pond he put up for a
day in an Irish town. He was lingering
over a cigar in a smoking room at his hotel
a room at the back of the building and
overlooking a canal when be noticed an-
' other occupant of the place. The reason
lor noticing him was the other fellow's iter
ation of the phrase, "And there were thir
teen av thim drowned, and me own brother
amang thim." This soliloquist was a na
tive, a man in middle life, who made his
remiu-ks at ten minute intervals, gazing
1 sadly out upon the canal meanwhile. At
last lie sould no longer contain the infor
mation lluU he was almost perishing to im
part, and turning to Mr. ialsbury he said :
" 'Twas a sad accident they had here, sure,
two years ago come the 14th of nixt Sep
temlier, and me own brother amang thim."
'How wrs that ?" asked Mr. Salsbury,
willing to be sympathetic.
