The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schknck's Pulmonic Syrup, Schknck s Seb Weed Tonic, and Schknck 9 Mandrake Pill,s and If taken before the lungs are destroyed speedy cure is effcted. To these three medicines Dr. J. II. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes bis unrivalled sucess in the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Syrup 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 fl', the patient lias 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, removing all obstruc I tions. relax the gall 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 and prevents souring, it as sists the digestion by toniug up the stomach to a tieaituy comimon. so tnat tue rood ana tne lul- nionlc Syrup will make good blood; then the lain heal, and the patient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenk, either per sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office corner of Sixth and arch Sts., Philadelphia, every .Monday. Schenk's medicines are sold by an druggists throughout the country. THE MOTJSTAI1T MEADOW MASSACRE. John D. Lee, the Convicted Author. Shot. Salt Lake. March 23.

Shoveling snow, however, did not exactly suit them, so as soon as the officer was out of sight they skipped. JBsa-John Griffin, a coal hauler from Coal v alley, came into town yesterday aUernoon, took on board a lew drinks, and about nine o'clock brought up at the I'hcenix house, where he concluded to put up hr the night. He took off his coat and hung it cn a hook beside several other coats and walked up to the clerk and asked if he could get lodging for the night. He was answered in the negative and directed to another house, whereupon he put on a coat aad went out. A few moments after this occurrence Godfrey Tubah, one of the boarders, wanted to use his coat but could not hnd it, but an old ragged one was found wLich no one in the house claimed; consequently suspicion was at once directed to Griffin, he being the only stranger seen iu the ftnee, and search was at oDce instituted for him, -He was found at Bourne's restaurant, where he had engaged lodging, and was already in bed. The coat was touna with him, and he was taken to the calaboose by Officer Corney. This morning he was brought before Magistrate Swander and an examination had. He did not attempt to deny taking the coat but said that he was a littU drunk am thought it was his own. The fact that h did not take flight, or try to secrete the garment was the only thing in his favor and gave some color of truth to his story. Al though m strict justice, he deserved to be bound over, the court felt a shadow of doubt as to his intentions and allowed him to go, warning him not to be up on such a charge again.

The last number of the Dixon Telearaph ia nearly filled with the report of the evidence taken by the Coron- Celery. er s Jury in the ministerial wile-poisoning case at Ashton, Lee eounty, which was mentioned in The Argus a week or two ago.

The Iowa City Press copies our article about Edith O'Gorman. and says: Her business is not to save souls, not to unfold the horrors of convents, but to put filthy lucre into the pockets of herself and the man who travels with her.

Her lecture "to ladies only," is an abomination, and though women, and good women, attend it and are unstained by it. that result is due rather to the impregnability of that divin 11 lty wmcn aotn hedge around their own purity, than to the atmosphere in which they listen to the salacious slanders of creature suffering from what the New York Methodist preachers call "an aberration of amativeness."
