Duma and Bis Economical Son.
Alexander Dumas, the great French,
story writer, was very fond and proud of
his s in Alexander, who also became a
fame .s author. His regard for him was
incretsed apparently, by the fact that
the son had a very good appreciation of
the value of money a quality which the
father did not possess in the slightest de
gree. A r cent writer of recollections relates
that I e once visited Dumas at St Ger
main. He had just been bitten in the
hand 1 y his dog and was unable to write,
but w;is dictating a novel.
His son went out as the visitor came in.
"Al xander has just left me," said the
father. "What a good fellow that boy
is! Jtst fancy, this morning I received
650 francs. He said to me, Til take 60
francs of it.' I didn't quite hear and
thought he was going to leave me only
50. Sc I called out, 'Hold on! Let me
have MO of it at least P 'But I tell you
rm only going to take 50f he called out
'Oh, oh,' said I, 'I thonght you were go
ing to take the COO. Well, take as much
as you want.' "
And Dumas added proudly, ''What a
golden hearted fellow Alexander is, to
He Made a Mistake.
To J. S. We think that the yoting
lady's indignation has a just foundation
in your impertinence that is, if your
own statement of the affair be taken as
the basis of facts. You had no business
to hint that she used cosmetics even if
you did "honestly think so." Her ring
ing for n glass of water and offering that
and her handkerchief to you to enable
yon to test the matter on the spot by
washing her cheeks was a masterstroke.
She di 1 a sensible thing in putting the
question beyond doubt by rubbing her
face, when you declined her offer, with
her damp handkerchief, and then did a
most bexming thing when she rang for
the seretnt to show you out, stating that
yon wis led to retire. That was well
done. Sich a spirited girl as that can
have no need of cosmetics. You made a
mistake and must now abide the conse
quences. That seems to us about the
whole rem and essence of the matter.

glared and sat speechless. Mrs. Lozier,
who was then president, hurried down
from the presiding chair and had a hur
ried whispering conversation with the
opera singer, while the little Italian stood
in the aisle suffering mental agonies
from the concentrated glare of 200 femi

overheard to say:
"Why, madam, he is my accompanist,
and I cannot sing without him. If he
goes, then I must go."

little English, and after standing quizzic

up to the singer and asked what it all
meant, he explained, and then the
Italian's blood boiled.
"I nevair hear of such a zing." he saii
vehemently. "Adieu, madanie!"
He was jiersnaded to remain and play,
but when he had finished he bolted, and

Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefully read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to ,the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It if folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, hut always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
paldo specialist, who goes right at
the cause of t he trouble and removes
it. is the only hope.

ciates cure all cases of deafness

and ask Mr. Peterson if it is not so.
To the Pul Tc.
Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each w eek or two,
for the past three years in the tri
city papers. In the case of Mr.
Peterson, Dr. Wilson would state, he
has lived in Kock Island county for
over 30 years. He is director of a
lire insurance company, and is also
connected with the management of
Augnstana college. Is he a man to
be relied on? Let the public judge.
Within the past three months Dr.
Wilson has published the statements
and pictures of a number of minis
ters who say under their own signa
tures that they have been c-u-r-e-d
at the Scott Medical Institute, Can
they be relied on as telling the truth?
Ia-1 the public judge.
Dr. Wilson has noticed a senseless
tirade against him by a young firm
trying to do business in the tri-cities.
Some three weeks ago Dr. Wilson in
serted in the papers a statement to the
effect that he would notice this baby
lirm no more in print. Today he
says the same thing. It is no pleas
ure for us to work for nothing.
Dr, Wilson has business interests
at stake in this stat?. The '-blowing
firm" have nothing to "lose here
nothing that can lie touched there
fore we decline to "bark where we
can not bite."
Dr. Wilson wishes to announce
to the general public that his diplo
ma is registered with the county
clerk in this city and shows he has
practiced medicine years before
either of this "great lirm"' entered
Should we condescend to answer
this "great lirm" in the manner in
which they assailed the Scott Medi
cal Institute, we could bring forward
proof, which we have held in our
jM)ssession for months, that
would make them beat a hasty re
treat from our city, or wish they had
never opened this discussion.
Dr. Wilson's plan has always been
"let our patients talk for us."1 And
when he has to "blow his own horn"
for the sake of deceiving the public,
he will take down the sign "Scott
Medical Institute" and close his bus
iness. Does this look reliable? Let the
