ALMOST BEYOND HOPE.
Was Advised by Friends to try the Specialists of the
Scott Medical Institute The Result.
RSV. S. J. BOSTROM,
740 E. Sixth SL, Davenport, la.
Rev. Mr. Bostrcm of No. 740 East t-'ixth street, Davenpoit,
Iowa, when called on macle the following statement:
"I am a minister and although averse to having mj name and totiion before the public,
I moat ray I cannot give Dr. Wilson, of the Scott Medical Institute too much praise In re
gard to my rase.
"It was for wee 'a that I was unable to fill my pulpit, and was compelled to have my
ehnrch supplied by other ministers. I first tried patent medicines b it steadily got worse.
I then vitlted different physicians of this city, bnt oonld get no permanent relief- My
dlseise was contracted from "La Grippe," which left me with a bad case of Catarrh. Hy
trouble first commenced with headache, pa n over the tyer, and a com tant discharge of ma
sons into my throat. Tbis discharge passing into my stomach caused n e to have tha ordinary
symptoms of Eyspers'a. liy bronchial trouble got so bad that it tu hard to breathe, and
I would expectorate or cough up la'ge quantises of thick, string r mooous. This continced
so long thst I got so bid my neighbors thought I was dying. 1 was toM I would have to stop
preaching. I got no permanent relief although I tried a number of repi table physicians until
I commenced treatment with Dr. Wiloon, of the Scott Medical Institute, I commenced to im
prove from the start and felt decided y better the first week. I am feeling as wall now as I
erst did in my life and I occupy my polplt every Sabbath. I cannot t highly recommend
Dr. 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 hundred dollars reward will be paid by Dr. Wilwn of the Scott Medical Institute,
for any cstimonUl that will appear in the future or that has appeared in the past that is
fictitious. This offer is good for the next twenty yeara. You will see ti e advertisements
bearing the old-time sayings, "Tell the Truth," "He who lies will" steal," "He who steals
will lie," and we might ald: ."He who came to town although an infant M. D, expects to own
the town " Itreminds ns of tho old adage, '-The grapes are sour." The advert ser who
hat nothing else to d can wall devote his tints to envying his neighbors. We would like to
see a similar reward offorel by aflrm we have now before our minds. L -t it appear if ton

Low! In Biff Hotels.
A well known hotel man said recently:
"In all my experience 1 have never been
able to explain to my entire satisfaction
why it is that so many hotel guests consider
the articles in their rooms public property
and persist in carrying them away.
"The losses to a large hotel such as the
Grand Pacific, of Chicago," he added, "run
high in the thousands of dollars annually
from such pilfeaing. No article is too insig
nificant to escape the attention of the
thieves, nor ia there anything in a hotel
bedroom except, possibly, the bed, bureau
and washstand that may not be carted
"Knives and forks, towels and bed cloth
ing are, however, the articles most fre
quently removed. Still everything has to
be watched, from the soap in the dishes to
the French clock in the bridal chamber. I
can recall several instances of thefts of the
last named article, and as for rugs, there is
scarcely a hotel proprietor in the country
who would leave one of any value in a
"John Hoey was an exception to this
role, however, but after the first season or
so that he ran the palatial Hollywood at
Long Branch he was compelled to have
itemized lists drawn np of the articles con
tained in every sleeping room and suite in
his house. When any guest departed an
account of the contents of the room vacated
was at once taken and compared with the
list, and this was done only because ex
perience showed it to be necessary.
"I do not know how the thieves have the
face to use the marked articles," said the
man in conclusion, "but the fact remains
that thousands of articles are taken annu
ally, and I believe that an inspection of the
effects in the homes of many a traveler
would bring to light a most curious assort
ment of hotel stuff picked up here and
there in journeying over the country."

Origin of an Indian Name.
One of the most prosperous clubs with
supposed Indian names, in whose members
can be traced no blood of our aboriginals,
the "Poor Lo's" of the school books, is the
popular Wawayanda club, to whom thou
sands of their friends are indebted for the
jolliest days of their lives. Their hospital
ity, lavishly displayed at their handsome
out of town clubhouse, is proverbial. In
explaining the origin and meaning of the
title a member of the club will tell you
that, "once upon a time," a noble red man
stood in silent majesty upon the very
ground rtpon which the clubhouse stands,
gazing with melancholy eyes at the setting
sun. He was the only relic of a great tribe
f peaceful aborigines who had been swept
from the face of the earth or despoiled of
their lands and exiled by the wicked white
man. A pulefHce approached him with the
"Where is your tribe, noble chief?"
"Way, way yonda," replied the red
skinned lover of fire water.
That settled it, and "Wawayanda" be
came the name of the club for want of a
better one, for all the Indian names avail
able bad been distributed among other or
ganizations, including Tammany. There
seems to be a touch of original sin and
Ananias in the always ready explanation,
bnt the hospitality of the club soon dispels
the doubt and makes the visitor acknowl
edge that, wit h such a welcome and good
cheer, a club by any other name would not
be as enjoyable. New York Times.
The Largest Baby Ever Born.
The baby which for general size, height
and weight takes the cake as being "the
largest on record" was born in Ohio on the
12th day of January, 1879. The "average
baby" weighs from six to nine pounds.
This giant infant's weight was exactly SiS4
pounds. He (it was a boy) was 2: feet in
height (the common run of babies range
from 16 to 20 inches in height) and had a
head measuring 19 inches. Its cute little
pink foot measured inches and was as
thick as that of the average eighteen-months-old
child. About six years prior to
this extraordinary event the same womr.n
gave birth toon eighteen pound lj:iby wLirii
was 24 inches in height.

wonderful story by those not informed us
to the real facts, it will lie shorn f tw of

lltv- a Woman Jailers.
Confidence between man and woman
must always be com punitive and absolute
trust a practical impossibility, since tire
differences of temperament preclude ;t per
feet understanding. A man can neve r si e
a woman entirely as she is or as one of hi ,
own sex may see her, and vice versa. Yet
a woman is more likely to comprehend u
maa-viil his motives than he i.s to compre
hend her, for a woman, while mere seni
tively sympathetic, judges instantly by i?
stinct, straight and sure as the crow flic-,.
A man, on the other hand, travels the rail
road of reason, where there are many
shuntings, and a single mistaken signal
may upset the whole train of his logic. In
judging a woman's motives and feelings a
man argues from his own, and deduces con
clusions which are, more often than not,
radically erroneous. "Woman Through a
