The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schesck's Pulmonic Syrup, bcHENfK s Sek Weed Tonic, and Schenck s Manpkakk Pill,b and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure Is effcted. To these three medicines Dr. J. II. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess iu the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matters in the lung's; nature throws it off by easy expect oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a light cou'-h will throw it ft, the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this Schenk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's Man drake Pills act on the liver, removi'iir all obstruc tions, relax the jiall bladder, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon recieved. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative; the alkali of which it is composed mixes wi:n me loou ana prevents souring, it as sists the digestion by toiiiutr u; the stomach to healthy condition, so that the food and the Ptil monic Syrup will make good blood : then the luii"rB heal, aud the patient will surely get well if care i taken to prevent iresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenk, either per sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal omc corner of Sixth and arch Ma., Philadelphia, every Monday. Schenk's medicines are sold by all druggists throughout the country. USE RENNE'S PAIN-KILLING MAGIC OIL Van Schnack, Stevenson & Reid, Wholesale Agt Chicago 111.

ODe of the largest and most fashionable audiences ever as sembled in Molinc, greeted the Kmma Abbott company, at the Congre gational church last evening- Ti e event was one that had been looked torward to by the muMC-loving citizens of Moline and vicinity with anxious expectancy, aud udging from the rapturous applause be stowed, it was thoroughly enjoyed by those present. I he troupe had engaged rooms at the Harper House and were to be conveyed from thence in carriages. The train, however, was one hour late, necessitating their stopping off at Moline. They proceeded to the Reese House where Mr. Reese provided a lunch. It was then time for their appearance, and so, rather than keep the audience waiting, a hasty toilet was prepared and the company went directly to the church. A notice of the concert will be found iu another column of this paper. The company, after the performance, owing to the lateness of the hour,coucluded to stay at the Reese House last night and to-day went to the Harper House, Rock Island, where they remain until to-morrow evening. The members of the Boat Club, and especially the committee having the matter in charge. are entitled to thanks for their untiring efforts to make the affair a success, and are deserving and should receive the support of our citizens for having secured for Moline the best entertainment ever given in th6 city.
