ALMOST BEYOND HOPE.
Was Advised by Friends to try the Specialists of the
Scott Medical Institute The Result.
RKV. 8. J. BOSTRONf,
"40 E. Sixth S'., Davenport, la.
Rev. Mr. Boetrom of JJ 740 East tfixsh street, Davenpoit,
Iowa, when called on mad the io' lowing statement:
"I am a minister and although averse to baring my name an 1 (.oeiiion before the public,
I must say I cannot give Dr. Wilson, of the Scott Medical Institute too mich praise in re
gard to my rate.
"It was for wee that I was unable to fill my pulpit, and was compelled to have my
church supplied by other ministers. I first trkd patent medicines but steadily got worse.
I then visited different physicians of this ciiy, bnt conld get no permanent relief. My
dlreise was contracted from "La Grippe," whici left me with a bad case of Catarrh. My
trouble first eommtnced with headache, pain over the yef, and a constant dlschar. e of mu
ooae into my throat. This discharge passing into my stomach ca ised me to have the ordinary
symptoms of Dyspeps'a. My bronchial trouble got so bad that it was tard to breathe, and
I would expectorate or cough up large qaau' ires of thick, string y mooons. This continued
a long that I got so bid my neighbors thought I was dying. I told I would have to stop
preaching. 1 got no permanent n lief although I tried a number of reputable physicians until
I commenced treatment with Dr. Wilson, of the Scott Medieal Ins itute, I commenced to im
prove from th- start anil felt decided y better the first week. I am feeling as well now ss 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 Savs 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 hundred dollars reward will be paid by Dr. Wilson of the Scott Medical InMitutc,
for any estimonial that will appear in the future or that has appeared in the pa?t that is
fictitious. This offer Is good for the next twenty years. You wilt sea the advertisements
bearing the old-time sayings, "Tell the Troth," "He who lies will steal." "He who steals
will lie," and we might add: "tie who came to town although. an ii fant M. D. expects to own
the town" It reminds ns of the old adage, '-The grapes are war." The advert ser who
bai nothing else to di can well devote his time to envying his neighbors. We would like to
see aaimilar reward offerei by a firm we hive now Tefore our minds Let It appeir if jou

I. Marion Crawford Report an Exciting
Time on an Italian Steamer.
"Speaking of jewels," said F. Marion
Crawford, the author, to a reporter, "recalls
k me an incident on an Italian steamer. It
illustrates the overpowering greed for gold
and the estimate some people place upon
their worldly possessions. It also illus
trates a man's splendid nerve.
"It was on my lost trip up from India.
It was dinner hour. My seat was on the
captain's right. Opposite me sat an old
English sea captain. Next to him was a
Calcutta English merchant who had ac
cumulated a fortune and was returning to
old England to enjoy it. He had invested
a large sum of money in rich jewels, and
they were aboard with him. There were
only a few of us who knew that the ship's
safe contained many thousands of pounds
sterling worth of diamonds and rubies.
"We were all laughing and talking and
enjoying our meal immensely. No one
thought of disaster or accident.
"Next came a sudden and tremendous
shock, accompanied by a thumping, bump
ing sound from the hold as if we had struck
upon a rocK. The sensation was inde
scribably painful. There was a noise of
running about on deck. The passengers
sprang from their seats, their features
blanched with terror, and their eyes start
ing with fe3r. Wives threw themselves
into their husbands' arms. Mothers Dressed
their little ones to their breasts. All was
confusion and disorder. Everybody was
panic stricken. It seemed as if we could
hear the waters rush into the aperture we
were all certain had been torn in the ves
sel's bottom. Every woman screamed, and
the men were about as badly demoralized.
"The English sea captain sprang to his
feet, exclaiming, 'Well, I guess we are done
for.' It was a supreme moment.
"The owner of the jewels was a pitiable
sight. He was the first person to reach his
feet, clutching the back of the revolving
chair with one hand and pressing the other
tightly against his heart. His face was a
sickly livid; his mouth was open and his
" 'My God! my jewels!'
"His tones were scarcely above a hoarse
whisper. The man's terror was so great
that he fascinated me, and for a moment I
forgot my own apprehensions. I could not
take my eyea off his face. You see, his first
and only thought was his jewels. Every
other person in the saloon was thinking of
his life, but this man's mind in that mo
ment of terrible suspense was centered
upon his wealth.
"There w.-s but one man who remained
in his seat and apparently unmoved, for if
he experienced any fear he certainly did
not manifest it. At the monent the crash
came the Italian captain hni stretched out
his hand to frrasp a lxttle of wine between
his plate and mine. The muscular move
ment did not cease. The hand grasped the
bottle, and, conveying it to hiB glare, he
coolly poured the red liquid full to the
brim. He returned the bottle to it place
and glanced up almost inquiringly at the
terrified creatures who were ranged in all
sorts of attitudes expressive of their respec
"It was all over in a few momenta, you
know. The passengers with their next
thought instinctively looked toward the
captain, and seeing him so calm hesitated
before taking their mad flight up the sa
loon staircase to the deck, as all were con
templating. At that moment one of the
petty officers hurried down the staircase
and whispered a word in the captain's ear.
" 'Do not feel alarmed, my friends,' said
the captain in clear, reassuring tones, which
at once soothed the emotions and stilled the
fears of his hearers, there is no danger and
we are not on a rock.'
"The man with the jewels dropped into
his scat as limp as a rag and as weak as a
babe, a great tsigh of relief escaping from
his lips. The relief was of course general,
thong'n our appetites were seriously im
paired. We then learned that the cylinder
head of one of the low pressure engines had
blown out and the piston rod was having a
parrot and monkey time all by iiw-lt. It
was an exciting experience one which I
would not care togotbroujrh again." New
