CRITICAL EXAMINATION INTO THE RKCCRD AND STANDING OK DR. LANOIX, Sr tor. Cth & Hampshire Streets, (nlney, Illinois. Editorial Comwjiondenoe of the Trade Journal, I'hicaifo. In response to numerous inquir ies we have made thorough and un biased examination into the record of this physician, and as a result of such impartial investigation we can not but bestow our heartiest ap proval and commendation. As the investigation was conducted without the aid, 'and even without the knowl edge, of the subject of this report, and is based altogether upon the facts furnished from the highest and most disinterested sources, and from confidential expressions of represen tatives of the financial and commer cial interests of the community, its fairness may be implicitly trusted. and its suggestions safely acted up on by those seeking highest ability and superlative skill. This journal neither solicits nor accepts paid "write-ups" of any physician, and serves no interests save those of its readers, but is al ways ready and willing to proclaim rare and phenomenal merit where- ever such is found. In this case an overwhelming array of competent testimony was freely offered to prove its ability of the highest type which has achieved success bordering upon the miraculous. Indeed, all the evidence was unanimously in favor nothing against not a single note of discord to jar upon the harmony of universal praise. Leaders in the marts of trade ; highest officials in the banks ; the heads of industrial institutions all when questioned heartily conceded tribute in words so eulogistic that our representatives could not but believe that a master of his profession a physician of paramount skill had impressed his inherent worth upon the people. Case after case was cited wherein the ability of the local practitioner and family physician was unavailing where every means proved impo tent and vain where as a last re sort almost in desperation this masterful skill was sought, and as a result immediate relief and perma nent cure was obtained. This has been repeated until it has ceased to excite wonder until the community regards it as an every-day anair The pages of this paper would not contain an enumeration of the cases of the afflicted who have appealed to this "court of last resort" all other hope dead and now gladly proclaim their restoration to health and happiness to home and friends who in their gratitude and joy gladly spread the tidings that others who are falling faint and foot-sore to die in despair, may look up and catch the glorious hope which shines down upon the disease-stricken as does the golden orb of day into the Cimmerian darkness of chaos. But there are those who are still ignorant of this great healing power, who know not how near at hand is surcease from suffering, and ready cure for the most obstinate ailments, complicated diseases and chronic complaints which have withstood every known power, and baffled all ordinary e kill. To those unfamiliar with this new hope we would come with words of good cheer, bringing promise of the blessings of health, obtainable, we know, from no other source save this. To this class of unfortunates these words should come like unto a new gospel of phy sical regeneration, bringing sweet est comfort to those grievously af flicted, who, having exhausted all known skill, are ready to give up in despair. To such we would say that we know whereof we write when we state we have satisfied ourselves beyond the slightest peradventureof a doubt that cure is here obtainable when no other hope exists on earth. We will cheerfully and promptly answer any and all letters from read ers concerning this eminently suc cessful practioner, but would sug gest that correspondence be sent directly to his office, as thereby much valuable time will be saved. and the writer be placed in touch with the most marvelous curative power of the day. Whilst we will willingly respond to all inquires we cannot more strongly emphasize our words. It would be impossible to speak more emphatically regarding this beneficent power to heal, and in the light of investigation we could not honestly say less than we have. We have found where cure can be obtained when all lesser skill fails, and in common justice make such facts known to thousands who will gladly avail themselves of this masterful ability. For these reasons we bestow the unqualified endorse nient and approval of this journal Upon the trustworthiness of such commendation we willingly rest the confidence of every reader, and the prestige gained in seventeen years of honorable and unbiased journal ism. This we do without money and without price not even asking the gratitude of the physician, but solely and alone that our readers, whose interests we represent, may secure the choicest blessings of health from this sure source when every other has been appealed to, and appealed to in vain..

A Permanently Established Mexico Institution for the Benefit of Man kind A Few Testimonials. The Mexico Institute Tobacco Cure is a remedy for the cure of the tobacco habit. Properly used it will cure inveterate smokers and chewers. It has stood the test and established a reputation of being a certain cure. It will not injure the general health but, on the contrary, will improve it. The following testimonials, taken from many re ceived, is sufficient to show the val ue of the remedy : Kibksville. Mo., June 0, 1893. I have been chewing and smoking from 5 to 10 cents worth of tobacco each day for the past fifteen years. I used the Mexico Institute Tobacco Cure and am perfectly cured of the habit. I know it will care any one if used ac- coraing to directions. Amos E. Ayres. Mexico. Mo.. July 11, 1893. I here by certify that one-fourth bottle of the Tobacco Cure from the Mexico Insti tute cured me of smoking' so complete ly that attempts to smoke repeatedly made me sick. I was an inveterate smoker prior to taking the treatment. U. H. UALLEV, M. 1. Gaht. Mo.. July 8.1893.

JYm says : The difference in the way Louisiana and Mexico- do business is well il lustrated sb the awning business. Louisiana passed an ordinance that the wooden awnings must go. It liaised a great howl, citizens made speeches before the Council and threatened law suits and injunctions and other weapons of warfare and the Council backed down and repeal ed the ordinance. Mexico passed the same kind of an ordinance, the same old kick was raised and yet the Council went right ahead. The awning owners refused to move them and Tuesday the city employ ed a force of men and the disfiguring sheds were knocked to kingdom come. Some of the property owners served an injunction on the city and the question will be settled in the courts whether a city cannot control its own streets. We think it can.

Thirty miles from the city of Ku marnoto, Japan, is tbe volcano Aso San, which has the largest crater in the world. It is more than thirty miles in circumference, and peopled by 20,000 inhabitants. Think of walking for miles among fertile farms and prosperous villages, peer ing into school house windows and sacred shrines well within the shell of an old-time crater, whose walls rise 800 feet all about you. It gives one a queer feeling. Hot springs abound everywhere. In one place brick-red hot water is utilized to turn a rice mill. The inner crater is nearly half a mile in diameter,and a steady column of -roaring steam pours out of it. The last serious eruption was in 1884,when immense quantities of black ashes and dust were ejected and carried by the wind as far as Kumamoto, where for three days it was so dark that artificial light had to be used. o -J W.

Turned in toes are often found in preoccupied and absent-minded persons. The mi- ' ser's walk is represented as stooping, j noiseless, with short, nervous, anx 'ious steps. Slow steps, whether , long or short, suggest a gentle or reflective state of mind, as the case may be. The proud step is slow and measured ; the toes are con spicuously turned out, the legs straightened. Where a vengeful purpose be hidden under a feigned smile the step will be slinking and noiseless. The direction of the steps wavering and following every chang ing impulse of the mind, inevitably betrays uncertainty, hesitation and indecision; Obstinate people who in an argument rely more on muscu larity than on intellectual power rest the feet fiat and firm on the ground, walk heavily and slowly and stand with the legs firmly plant ed and far apart.
