DR. SCHENCK'S STANDARD
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
Schenk's medicines are sold by all druggists
throughout the country.

at $500. Government officers, however,

Plummer. who was on the train, washed
and dressed his wounds, and as b.3 (the
doctor) could not remain here advised iMc
G raven's triends to call some resident
physician. Later Dr. McKinnie was
called and examined his wounds, pro
nouncing them not of a fatal nature. Mc
Gavern. however, was so full of whisky
last night that it was impossible to tell to
what extent he was injured, but this morn
ing, Dr. McKinnie says the injury on his
side, where the engire struck him. will
doubtbss result in pleurisy, and is of a
serious nature. He is suffering intense
pain to day and thinks he is going to die.
Every thing is being done for him that

Rock Island, was up to se the injured

severely injured, that he will recover.
The Abbott Concert.
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.
