SPECIAL NOTICES.
DR. SCHENCK'S STANDARD
REMEDIES.
The standard remedies for all diseases of the
longs are Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sohejjck's
See Weed Tonic, and Schenck s Mandrake Pill,s
and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a
j speedy cure is tfTcted.
To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of
Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess in the
treatment of pulmonary disease.
The Pnlmonic 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 off, the patient has rest
and the lungs begin to heal .
To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this,
Schenk' 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 ua'. ibladder, the bile starts freely
and the liver is boob recieved.
Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a irentle stimulant
and alterative; the alkali of which it is composed
mixes with the food and prevents souring. It as
sists the digestion by toning np the stomach to a
healthy condition, so that the food and the Pul
monic Syrup will make good blood; then the lnngs
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 ana arch Ms., rnuaaeipnia.

patronized if Mr, Beals could be induced
to undertake it. The exercises consisted
songs, tableaux, declamations, in
strumental music and theatrical perform
ances. Among the most noticeable was an
instrumental exercise by Erie Beals and
Colonel Oyler, both boys under ten years
f ace. loutii! Beals rendered several
auiiliar pieces upon the flute with a
guitar accompnimeut by Oyler. A dec
amation. 'Ihe frenchman and the flea
powder." by Willie McClellen was well
rendered and highly appreciated by the
audience; and several more which space
wnl not permit mention ot in this notice
Of course the irrepressibles were in the
audience as ususal, making themselves
obnoxious by their whistling and sharp(?)
remarks. At every dropping ot the curtain
they took possession of the floor and bellow
ea siang at each other across tho bouse in
such a manner as to tliseust everv decent
person in the house. If something is'nt
done to check this rowdyism before iong.
it will be impossible to have a performance

at the eneine house, had the Dolls closed.
read D. O. Keid s report, and suggested
the election of overseers of highways for
districts Nos- 2, 3. 4 and 5. The election
was proceeded with bv acclamation, not
without considerable ill-feeling and some
loud talking by a few farmers, and just
as it was being finished Deacon Tyrrell,
who had been turning leaves in a law book
all this time, informed them that it would
all have to be done ever as Turner was not
the proper person to preside over such an
election. D. V. Witter then bounsed the
table and the following overseers were
elected: District No. 2 August Johns;
district No. 3 Zach Einfeldt ; district No.
4 Horace Hunter, district No. 5 Peter

Dr Fenton. Cleveland, O. Dear Sir: Five years
ago, then in Brazil, South America, I there contrac
ted a disease that nearly cost me my life. I was
seven months in hospitals Spanish Brazilian and
Buenos Ay res but to no purpose. I then went to
Cienf uegoe, Cuba, and spent sixty-four days in the
military hospital. The doctors told me if I had any
friends I had better make my way to them. The
American Consul sent me to New York. Last
Spring it came on ma again, rest In the night was
out of the question. A friend in the St Charles
Hotel here (Detroit) advised Fenton's Matchless
Syrup; I tent for six bottles. I have only Uken
four and am perfectly well. I muet say it surprised
me, ana au that knew the condition I was In for
five yetre. I freely recommend Fenton's Matchlesa
Syrco above any blood purfier in tne catalogue of
medicines. Yours respectfully.
