Kickapoo Indian Medicine Co.: I have been an invalid for seventeen years. Can hardly ex Sress what I have suffered. One octor during the time refused to give me medicine saying ho could do nothing for me. Some others said they could do noth ing more than relieve me for a time. I called on the indian doc tor, and to my surprise he too refused to sell me medicine, say ing your remedy would do me no good. Contrary to his ad vice I used Kickapoo Indian Sagwa, however, and I can not find words to express what it has done for me. To say that I fell like a new woman in this short time is expressing it mildly. My case was very complicated. My voice many times would al most leave me, and I would speak in whispers. I have gained strength very rapidly, and I am confident that I am on the rapid road to recovery. In conclusion let me say to suffering women, do not hesitate to buv Indian Sagwa. You will never regret it You will have found a medi cine that you did not think was in existance. Respectfully. Mrs. Ellen Dancer.

A Few Pointer* About Chicago. Asa great many renders of the Tklk iibam will make their first trip to Chica go during the World's Fair, a few point ers regarding tho geography of the oily will Imi appreciated. In the Brut place, fix firmly in your mfnd the fact that Ijuke Michigan forms tbe eastern boundary of the entire oity, and if you stand ttoing the lake with bath arms mi Wretched, tbe left hand will point to tho North Pole and the nght band will g>iut straight down the tracks of the ig Four Route to tbe World's Fair Buildings, situated at the southern end of tlio city. Paste this in your hat aud yon bavo the key to theentiresituation. Coining into Chicago on trains of thn Big Four Route, which is the only rail road having an entrance on the south side along the lake front, where all tho hotela and iMianliug houses are located, yon will find yonraelfpaasiug prmetioally through tbe Exposition Grounds and a magnificent panoramic view of the Fair I in obtained. $ At the World'a Fair Station of tho Big Four Route, if you step off at the right side, you are at tho entrance gate to tbe Exposition aud can begin' doing'' the Fair at onoe: if you step off on the left side, yon will find yourself in tha Hneet residence portion of Chicago, and right iu tbe midst of tho World s Fair hotel and boarding house district, 'i'he chanoes are teu tonne you will be within a tew minutes walk of tho very place you have selected for your beadij uartcrs. If yon prefer to go down town, ten minutes ride will bnugyou to the new Twelfth Street Station in the heart of the city. Now bear in mind the mani fest advantage of entering Chiaago ou the Big Four Route. In the first place you avoid entirely tbe bother and tronble of a tedious transfer aaross tho oity. which is necessary via all other lines, being lauded directly at the E.t nositiou Grounds, an advantage offered by .no other line; and in the second piuco yon can so Bx the geography of the city in your mind that you will at once become as familiar with Chicago as yon are with yonr own town. Another point in favor of tha Big Four Route is fonnd in tbe fact that if yon enter Cincinnati on the Uueen 4 Crescent Route, Louisville & Nashville R. It., Kentucky Central Ry., Chcsa r>ke& Ohio lty., or Baltimore i Ohio W. It. R., connection is made in Union Depot, avoiding the disagreeable transfer necessary via all other lines.
