The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schenck's Pulmonic Strup, Schenck's See Weed Tonic, and Schenck b Mandrake Pill,s and If taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure is effcted. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess in the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Symp ripens the morbid matters in the lungs; nature throws it off by easy expect oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it c-ff, the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this. Selienk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's Man drake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc tions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon recieved. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a centle stimulant and alterative; the alkali or which it is composed mixes wi:h the food and prevents sourine. It as sists the digestion by toning op the stomach to a healthy condition, so mat the rood and the 1 ul monic Syrup will make good blood ; then the lungs heal, and the patient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fre6h cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenk, cither per sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office corner of Sixth and arch Sts., Tbllauelphia. every Monday. Schenk's medicines are sold by all druggists throughout the country. SEW HAMPSHIRE STATE ELECTION. I. Hot a Bad X,ook for the Democrats as Far as Heard From. Boston, March 13.

At Concord in wards 4 and 5, Briggs, Republican, for congress, was considerably behind his tick et, and Sulloway, Democrat, proportional ly ahead. At Nashua the Democrats will probably elect the mayor and a majority ot aldermen. At Portsmouth, the Republi cans look for an increased majority. At Claremont, Kent, Democrat,for congress, is ahead of his ticket, also at Keene. Noth ing definite has been received from Frank .Jones's district (Dem.) except from Dover which reports him as not running so far ahead of bis ticket as at the previous elec tions, USE REN HE'S PAIN-KILLING J.T.DIXON, MAR P, O Merchant Tailor "It "Works like a Charm."

Richard V Thompson arrived last meht and called at the. executive mansion this morninc in company with Morton. The presided met them in the red parlor and delivered to Thompson hiscommission as secretary ot l he navy. Among the visitors to the president to day were a number of KeDublicans and Democrats from Virginia. The latter say they are favorably impressed with the president, and believe be will do what is right toward all sections Mr. Morton, chairman of the elections committee, says the majority report on the Kellogg case, although prepared, will not be presented to the senate to day, and the views of the minority cannot of course be submitted before the majority report The reason for delay is conjectured to be that owing to absence ot .Republican sen ators Democrats constitute nearly or quite a majority, lhere is no other business ready for action by the senate, which will dow have to await Dominations or other executive business. Senator Blaine in view of a possibility that the president may not recognize Pack ard or Chamberlain, is very earnestly in favor of having, by consent ot all parties, a new election in Louisiana and South Car olina, and has so expressed himself to President Hayes. This, Blaine believes, could now be bad by common consent of all political organizations and could be conducted in a peaceful manner, free from entanglements of the presidential contest and the result of ;the election, whichever party might prevail would, in Blaine's i udgement, bring peace and contentment to those states more certainly perhaps than any other mode of adjustment now practicable. This policy Blame thinks would harmonize all elements of the Re publican party and secure at the same time the co operation of all Democrats in the south who desire a peaceful adjust ment of existing difficulties on an honor able basis. Ex-seoretary of the navy ItobesoD, to day, introduced Secretary Thompson to the heads of departments; alterwards the chiefs ot bureaus were presented and then the clerks ot the secretary's office headed by the chief clerk paid their respects. During introduction Seuators Hamlin and Blaiue aud Representative Read entered and paid their respects. There was no speech uibking.

Mr. Morrill is understood to have been offerod the uppoiutment of United States miuister to kngland, or some other tirst class country, but preferred to remain in his own state.

He had a pitful ' tale to tell as all of them have, which was about as follows: He says he arrived in Davenport yesterday and sot a "little drunk," and was arrested and that the police of that village robbeu him of $300 in notes, and $30 in money, and that they (the Davenport officers) then escorted him to the bridge, informing him that Illinois was a better state than Iowa for his class. Officer Olsen listened to the pathetic tale, smiled sadly, and then gob bled him and put him in the calaboose, where he remains at this writing. When last seen he was struggling with a band full of crackers and cheese and mumbling something about this being "A mean country, anyway." 6yJohn Burk, the lout who was up yesterday for stealing a coat and hat, and promised Magistrate Swander to leave the city when he was discharged, was again arrested, last night, by Officers Porney and teller, who found him about midnight in a half drunken condition on the streets. This morning Magistrate Swander's sen tence was, calaboose ten days, diet bread and water. He tried to work upon the sympathies of the court but without avail.

Baptist Church., ROCK ISLAND, THIS WEEK. Thursday Eve'g, March 15th. Eirat and only appearance in Rock Island of Miss EDITH O'GORMAIT, known to the world as the A Wonderful Institution. About twenty years ago a surgeon, on realizing the great army of over 200,000 deformed people in the United States, de barred from so much enjoyment and use fulness.and realizing the inadequate mean9 offered for their relief, and the fact that every day was adding to this host of suf ferers, he determined to revolutionize, as far as possible, the old mode of treatment of such cases by casting aside the cruel torture of the blisters, setons, cauteries, red-hot irons, bleeding, salivation, and heroic medication, and inaugurate a more rational, humane, and certain method ot cure. The twenty years, with nearly a million of dollars, have been expended in invent ing apparatus, machinery, and appliances. and founding institutions for their cure. Uver 40,000 greattul hearts reioice to day in the cures made by the National Surg cal institute, with its four great di visions at Philadelphia, Indianapolis. At lanta, and San Francisco. Surgeon-generals of other nations, and the toreign commissions at the centennial,paid it hom age, and gave it the most eulogistic cerufij cates and commendations. It exhibited there five times as many instruments and appliances tor the cure of diseased joints and deformities of the hu man body, as the United States and all the other nations combined, and, of course, received the highest premium, diploma, and medal. All its methods of cure are rational, scientific, and free from the old torturing and usages and failures of the past. Tho?e who have never visited the institution can form no conception of the great advan tages it possesses over all others who ma j propose to attempt a cure without these facilities. To relieve pain and disease, give motion to stiff joints, correct deform ities of all kinds, restore paralyzed limbs, and cure piles and fistula, diseases peculiar to women, and also diseases peculiar to men, is its mission. Y e have learned that on account of the hard times preventing so many suffereri visiting the National Surgical institute for relief, two or more of the surgeons have consented to visit our city, and will be at the Harper House, Koak Island, ills.. March 14 and 15th, 1877, where we would advise all nceeding their attention to be sure to call and see them. They will have with them a large stock of machinery, ap nlianccs, supporters, apparatus, and rem edies for treating the afflicted.
