A FEARFUL LEAP.
r.nJ hair-breadth escape is taken by thousands daily who might be
healthy if they would take advantage of their opportunities.
All persons suffering from the Impurities of the Blood are a ready
prey of Epidemics, Malarial Fevers and all forms of Trostration.
The blood Nourishes and Maintains the Several Tarts of the
P,odv. It is evident, then, that to cure diseases originating in Impure
;lood we must have a purifying agent that will eliminate the taint,
and thus Remove the Cause. Kickapoo Indian Sagwa will
cuve all troubles originating ia impure blood safely, speedily per
manently, and with economy. Impure blood is manifest in Pimples,
Blotches, Boils, Carbuncles, Eruptions or Sores, Sallow Skin, Salt
Rheum, Etc. The only way in which to alter this state of things is to
Cleanse The rioocl from all Impurities and allow a Free, Unobstructed
Circulation Through Every Vein and Artery of the Uody.

"Yes," said an engineer of long ex
perienet; to a rei-oiler, "r;uiro:uling is
an exciting, yet an attractive life. It
has its "aches ami pains.' but never
theless the 'goodies ami sweets.' too,
if one may put it so.
'I rei:-.eiii!er :i pci'til'trr accident that
happened to me on one of my trips not
long ao. To o back :t liitie, I will
say i hat one of the many sharp curves
(in the road is on a tifiy foot hill that
slopes flown to an old farmhouse. This
house was occupied by an old woman
known as 'Widow Jones.' She had
been asked many times to sell out to
I he railroad for "fear that some acci
dent would happen to her and her
homo. lint the widow had refused
just as often and things went on thus.
"Well, vou see. on niirht about 10
o'clock, as wo struck the curve at a
Tiod speed the engine broke from the
train, iett tne trae ami went roiling
down the hill. Tiia fireman jumped
safelv but I was not quick enough.
I'lie next m-.inient f nmd the engine
crashing through Widow Jones'1 house,
with nivself all mixed up in the debVis.
I picked myself up j ist in time to see
the widow "crawl out of her bed and
make a bee-line' from lh". house.
-Next day I knowingly smiled as I
read in the paper the transfer: 'Widow
Joc?s to the 15. It. K.'"

SU ratrlrk's Virtues.
Whatever else may te said about St.
Patrici. all the world will have to admit,
nem. !i ., tliat lie was a gentleman sans
peur sary reproehe. Tliere was nothing
cheap, tawuiy or commonplace in hJ5
composition. A3 a scholar he was a
wonder, as a cleric ho was nonpareil, as
a liishop he v.-.-.s peerless and as a saint
he was en ornament to the calendar.
Swift and the Lawyers.
Dean Swift having preached an "as
size sermon"' was invited to dine with
the judge. Re had borne rather hard on
tha legal profession in his sermon, and
the legal frentlemen retorted in kind be
fore the dinner was over. One young
barrister asked this qr. est ion:
"If the devil were to die, your rever
ence, do you not believe a priest could
be found who would preach the funeral
sermon for jucney?"
"Yes," v.-as; the reply, "and I would
gladly be the man. Then I ceuld give
the di vil his due, ;.s I have this day done
Pr t cp and Put Down.
I want a word to rbyms wltn ills.
1 h'ive it now: I'il pnt down pills.
Excu c ir e, tho;igh than put con n rills,
I'd ra'h' r siifXe-some tig ills.
To put down the old fashioned huge, bitter
Iili, tht griptd so and made such disturbance
internally is more than a wise man will do. Tie
will not pnt up with such unnecessary en tiering.
Tic uses Dr. Tierces Pleasant Pellets. As alivei
rill, they arc uncqnalcd. Smallest, cheapest,
easiest to take. Flit np in vImIs, hermetically
sealed, hence always fresh and reliable, which is
not true of tha large pills in wood or pasteboard
boxes. As a gentle laxative, cnly one pcl'et for
a dose. Three or four of these tiny, sugar-coated
grannies ret pleasantly and painlessly ae a cathartic.
I had a severe attack of catarrh
and became so deaf 1 could not hear
common conversation. I suffered
terribly from roarinp; in my head.
I procured a bottle of Ely's Cream
Balm, and in three weeks could hear
as well as I ever could, and now I
can say to all who are afflicted with
the worst of diseases, catarrh, take
Ely's Cream Balm and be cured. It
is worth $ 1 to any man, woman or
child sufferinjr from catarrh. A. E.

The success of the past week stimulates us to do greater things. The people of Davenport and our neighboring cities know when
they see a good thing, as has been demonstrated since our "Syndicate Sale" was opened. From appearance it would seem that our quantities
were limited, so eagerly we re they sought after. Yes, at the rate they have been going, some of them had to be sold out. There are others,
however, that will be placed on sale Thursday, equally as good as those we advertised last week, in addition to what was left of last week's
offerings. It is pretty shrewd policy to come early, as the quantities, no matter how large, are bound to go fast. It is still shrewder policy
to come early in the day.
