THE A1TGUS, THUKSDAT, FllliRUAKY 9,
ALMOST BEYOND HOPE.
Was Advised by Friends to try the Specialists of the
Scott Medical Institute The Result.
RfcV. S. J. BOSTROIJ,
740 E. Sixth S'., Davenport, I.
Eev. Mr. Bostrom of N. 740 East tfixth street, Davdnpoit
Iowa, when called on mad the following statement:
"I am a minister and H hough averse to having my name am. pocilion before the public,
I most ray I cannot give Dr. Wilson, of the Scott Medical Institute too much praise in re
gard to my raae.
"It was for wee'is that I waa unable to fill my pulpit, and was compelled to hare my
ehnrcb supplied by other ministers. I first tried patent mediciiics but steadily got worse,
f then vitited different phjsiciana of this city, bat could get no permanent relief. My
dkeise was contracted from "La Grippe," hie left ma with a bad case of Catarrh. My
trouble first com mi need with headache, pain over the eye, and a constant discharge of mu
cous into my throat. This discharge passing into my stomach cat.ged me to have the ordinary
symptoms of Dyspepsa. My bronchial trouble got go bad that it was bard to breathe, and
I woold expectorate or cough np large qaanlt eaef thick, string? mocoua. This continued
so long that I got so bid my neighbors thought I was dying. I w.s told I would have to stop
preaching. 1 got no permanent nllef although I tried a number tf reputable physicians nntil
I commence 1 treatment with Dr. Wllcon, of toe Scott Medieal last itote, I commenced to im
prove from th start and felt decided y better the first week. Ism feeling aa well now as I
ever did In my life and 1 occupy my pulpit every Sabbath. I cannot too highly recommend
Di. Wilson to any one similarly afflicted,"
We tell the truth This does not
apply to Fakirs."
So Says Dr. Wilson of the Scott Medical Institute,
who offers $500 reward for any testimonial of
the Scott Medical Institute that is not
genuine and what it pur
ports to be.
Five hnndred dollars reward will be paid by Dr. Wilson of tb: Scott Medical Institute,
for any 'ettimoaial that will appear in the future or that has appeared in the past that is
fictitious. This offer is good for the next twenty years. You wil: see the advertisements
bearing the old-time sayings, "Tell the Truth," "Ha who lies w 11 steal," "Be who steals
will li ," and we might add: "He who came to town although an infant M. D. expects to own
the town" It reminds as of the old adage, '-The grapes ire soar." The advert ser who
feat nothing else to do can well devote his time to envying his neighbors. We wonld like to
ta a similar reward offered by a firm we have now before our miuds. Let it appear if on

CLIFFORP'S A'-i3i WAS GOOD.
The Jury at Pittsburg Acquits the Home
Pittsburg, Feb. 8 At the opening -of
the Jack Clifford trial yesterday P. H. Ac
Elroy, vice president of the Amalgamated
association, was put on the stand as an ad
ditional alibi witness. He said he went to
Homestead on the afternoon of July 6, and
saw Clifford in Amalgamated hall at 2
o'clock. Defendant Jack Clifford said he
was engaged as a police officer from July 1
to July 6 for the borough of Homestead;
that be had not been near the Carnegie
plant from 8 a.m. till noon on July 6. This
ended the testimony, and the defense rested
Human Testimony Terr "Onaartin."
There probably has never been a ease
where the old adage "seeing is believing,''
received a blacker eye than in this one.
For the prosecution Clifford was positively
identified by several witnesses as having
been present and active in the attack ou
the boats from the first. It was also sworn
that he prepared and used dynamite in the
attack, and in fact that he was peculiarly
malignant in his action against the Pink
ertons on the day of the riot. Each side
was allowed two hours to address the
The Verdict of the Jury.
At 7:35 p. tn. the jury came into court
with a verdict of not guilty. Clifford was
removed to jail on the other charges pend
ing against him. He still has indictments
for murder, treason, and riot to answer for.
An effort will be made by his counsel to
secure his release on bail. Hugh O'Don
nell will be placed on trial Monday. Today
Bauer and Knoll, who are indicted as ac
cessories to Bergman, the man that shot
H. C. Frick, were placed on trial.
The Ragpickers of Taris,
The wealth of Paris is so boundless that
the rubbish and refuse of the city are worth
millions. There are more than 50,(XX per
sons who earn a living by picking up what
others throw away. Twenty thousand
women and children exist by sifting and
sorting the gatherings of the pickers, who
collect every day in the yeni about 1,200
tons of merchandise, which they sell to the
wholesale rag dealers for some 70,000 francs.
At night yon see men with baskets strapped
on their backs, a lantern in one hand and
in the other a slick with an iron hook on
the end. They walk along rapidly, their
eyes fixed on the ground, over which the
lantern flings a sheet of light, and what
ever they find in the way of paper, rags,
bones, grease, metal, etc., they Btow away
in their iMihketri. In the morning in front
of each house you see men, women and
c hildren sifting the dustbins before they
are emptied into the scavengers' carts.
At various hours of the day you may re
mark isolated rigpickers, who seem to
work with less method than the othersand
with a more independent air. The night
pickers are generally novices men who,
having been thrown out of work, are
obliged to hunt for their living like the
wild beasts. The morning pickers are ex
perieneed and regular workers, who p?y
for the privilege of sifting the dustbins of
a certain number of houses and of trading

The Karllest Knglixh Almwaac.
The earliest English printed almanac is
the calendar of Shepardes, of the I'iitii-nth
century. But many almanacs must have
come into existence when Queen Elizabeth
gave the monopoly of publishing them to
two members of the Stationers' company.
King James afterward extended the patent
to include the company in its corporate ca
pacity and the two universities, which la-st
assigned their rights for a yearly considera
tion to the company.
But with the civil war the monopoly was
broken through. Oxford, where the king
chiefly resided, migbt issue its loyal alma
nacs, bnt the more popular and widely cir
culated was the almanac of William Lilley,
the astrologer, first issued for 1643. under
the title, "Merlini Anglici Ephemeris."
The English Merlin is to be credited with
the foresight of getting upon the winning
side and prophesying boldly, for the parlia
ment was presently just ified by the over
whelming victories of his party. In the
issue of The Kphemeris for 1647, the prophet,
writing in October. lt4o, launched out into
a lKld pR'an of victory: "A new world since
this time twelvemonths! Townes and cities
taken or surrendered, armies royale routed,
the parliament forces ubicunque, victori
ous, his majesty distressed, the prince fled
beyond the sea."
He does not hesitate to show how the ap
proaching conjunction of Mars and Jupiter
presages still further calamity for the royal
head. But his triumph does not make the
prophet magnanimous. He has no words
too scornful for a rival seer who has en
deavored to find encouragement in the stars
for the losing side, All the Year Round.
One day a penniless literary man called
nn lamartine, who was then at the height
of his fame as a statesman and an author.
The visitor told Lamartine of his hopeless
life and of his poverty, and ended by asking
him for the loan of a considerable sum of
Lamartine, who was much moved by the
man's story, gave him the sum asked for.
The poor fellow, overcome with his unex
pected sucecess, could only sob out hir
thanks and kiss the hand of his benefactor.
After his visit had lasted about half an
hour Lamartine conducted the man to the
door. The season was early winter, and as
the statesman opened the door he noticed
that the unfortunate man was clad in thin
summer clothes, and that he trembled like
an aspen leaf.
He glanced at the rack, on which was his
own overcoat and hat. Seizing the coat,
he said to his trembling visitor, "Monsieur,
you have forgotten your overcoat."
Before the poor man could make any ob
jection and declare that be did not bring
any overcoat with him. and that he had not
had one for some years, lamartine placed
his own upon him, shook his hand and
with generous heartiness pushed him
quietly out and closed the door behind him.
This story would never have been given
to the world hud it depended on Lumar
tine's telling. Years afterward the once
unfortunate author rose to- be one of the
foremost men in France and toTd the story
of the generosity of Lamartine. Youth's
