The Rock Island & Peoria Railway
company have just received two elegant
coaches direct from the Pullman company
at Detroit, Michigan. These coaches are
what might, with propriety, be termed
double-seated chair cars. The seats are
of the latest improved style, elegantly
upholstered, and so fashioned that one
can occupy a reclining position and
make his journey with comfort and
ease. Tbe interior of the coaches
is finished in white walnut, tbe
light colored veneering being very
beautiful and richly ornamented. Each
coach is lighted with four double
lamps of beautiful design and large
mirrors are to be seen at eiiber end of the
car, Tbe windows are large and curtains
supply tbe (place of blinds. A wood
stove is placed in each end of tbe coach.
tke same being so constructed that no
fire can escape even though the coach
should turn bottom side up.and the stoves
when locked cannot be opened save by
tbe person who has the key. Every ap-
pointment is most complete and of the
latest improvement. The exterior of the
car is in keeping with tbe interior, and.
taken as a whole, are as fine as any
coaches in the country. They will be
run on the main line, one on each of the
day passenger trains between Rock Isl
and and Peoria.

- The marked benefit whieh people in run
down or weakened state of health derive
from Hood's Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves
tbe claim that this medicine " makes the weak
strong." It does not act like a stimulant,
imparting fictitious strength from which there
most follow a reaction of greater weakness
than before, but in the most natural way
Hood's Sarsaparilla overcomes that tired feel
ing, creates an appetite, purifies the blood,
and, In short, gives great bodily, nerve,
mental and digestive strength.
" Last spring I was completely fagged out.
My strength left me and I felt sick and mis
erable all the time, so that I could hardly
attend to my business. I took one bottle of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, and it cured me. There
is nothing like it." B. C Bkoomc, Editor
Enterprise, Belleville, Mich.
"I derived very much benefit from Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which I took for general debility.
It built me right up, and gave me an excel
