Talking of patent medicines
' you know the ola prejudice.
And the doctors some ' of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve . in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
"stuff, '"you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.

The ( lab a Weapon.
From the earliest times, the club was a
lavorite military weapon, its primitive
form being simply of a straight stick,
much heavier tit one end than at the
other, and adapted fur use either by one or
both hands. With improvements in
other styles or weapons, however, came
the mace. The mace is a shafted
weapon, consisting of a wooden handle
fitted into an iron head, the latter
being of mnnv different styles. Some
maces have phalanges on '.ho sides; others
are round like an oran-e, and furnished
with sharp projecting points; while others
Hgain are in the shape of two imperial
crowns placed base to base.
The mace was a ho: sctnan's weapon,
usually fastened to Ids saddle during the
march, and, in an action, suspended by a
cord round his wrist. It was a favorite
weapou for fight: n
ecclesiastics, of .
whom there were many during the mid
die ages. Priests, by a canon of the
church, being forbidden to use the sword,
the mace, the lance, thelialberd -and .sev
eral other weapons of this description,
were allowed to take the place of that
weapon, which, in all ages, has been typ
ical of war. A modification of the mace
was a plain hammer or nmul, frequently
carried by long bowrm n. It was a simple
mallet of wood or of iron, with a handle
4 or 5 feet long, used as an offensive
weapon at clo.se quarters. Globe-Democrat.
The Work of a lianctiman,
A ranchman's work is, of course, free
from much of the sameness attendant
upon that of a mi re cowboy. One day he
will ride out with his men among the
cattle, or after strayed horses; the next
he may hunt, so as to keep the ranch in
meat; then he can make the tour of his
outlying camps; or, again, may join one
of the round ups for a week or two, per
haps keeping with it the entire time it is
working. On occasions he will have a
good deal of spare time on his handi,
which, if he chooses, he can spend in read
ing or writing. If he cares for books,
there will be many a worn volume in the
primitive little sitting room, with its log
walls and huge fire place; but, after a
hard day's work, a man will not read
much, but will rock ,to and fro in the
flickering firelight, talking sleepily over
his success in the day's che.se and ti e
difficulty he has had with the cattle; or
else may simply lie stretched at full
length on the elk hides and wolf skins in
front of the hearthstone, listening in
drowsy silence to the roar and crackle of
the blazing logs and to the moaning of the
wind outaiue. Theodore Roosevelt in The

This was hist the way 1 felt when the
relentless malady which had fastened
itself upon me' fust U'gun. Still 1
thoiiirlit notliiuc of it; that prolwbly I
had taken a cold which would Moon pass
Hay. Shortly, after this I noticed a
heavy, and at times neuralnie, pain in
one side (if my head, but as it would
come one day and lv tfono the luyxt, I
paid little iitientiou to it. Then my
stomach would et out of order am! my
food m'ten fa'lisl to digest, enusin at
times ktrent inconvetiienee. Yet, even
as a physician, I did not think that
these things meant iiuythiiiK serious, I
fancied I was siilterini; (roui malaria and
doctored myself accordingly. Hut I ot
no better. ' 1 next noticed a peculiar
color and odor iiKutt the thuds 1 was
passim: also that there were large
quantities one day and very little the
nest and that a' persistent froth ami
scum appeared on the surface, and a
sediment settled. And yet I did not
realize my danger, for, indeed, seeing
these muptoniM continually, 1 finally
became' accustomed to them, and my
suspicion w as w holly disarmed bv the
fact that I nad no pain in the affected
organs or in their vicinity. Why I
should have W'on so blind I cannot un
derstand. I consulted the best medical skill in
the land 1 visited all the famed min
eral springs in America and traveled
from Maine to California. Still I grew
worse. No two physicians agreed as to
my malady. One said 1 was troubled
with spinal irritation; another, dyspep
sia; another, heart disease; another,
general debility ; another, congestion of
the base of the brain ; and so on through
a long list of common diseases, the sym
to:us of many of which I really had. In
this way several years passed, during
which time I was steadily growing worse.
Mv condition had real!v become pitiable.
The flight symptoms I had at first ex
perienced were developed into terrible
and constant disorders. Mv weight had
been reduced from 207 to I U0 pounds.
My life was a burden to myself and
friends. I could retain no food on my
stomach, and lived wholly by injections.
I was a living mass n pain. Jlv pulse
was uncontrollable. In my agonv I fre
quent !y fell to the fhior anil clutched the
eariiet.'nnd prayed for death. Morphine
had little or no' effect in deadening the
pain. For ix days and nights I had the
death-premonitory hiccoughs constantly.
Mv water was tilled with tube-casts and
alimmen. I was struggling with
r.right'j Disease of the kidneys in its
last stages !
Whi e suffering thus I received a call
from my pastor, t lie Rev. Dr. Foote, at
that time rector of St. Paul's Episcopal
(,'hurch, of this city. I felt that it was
our last interview, but in the course of
conversation Dr. Foote detailed to me
the many remarkable cures of cases like
my ow n which had come under his ob
servation. As a practicing physician
and a graduate of the schools I derided
the idea of any medicine outside the
regular channels being in the least lien
elicial. So solicitous, however, was Dr.
Foote, that T finally promised I would
waive my prejudice. I licgan its use on
the first day of June, 1881, and took it
according to directions. At first it siek-
ened me; but this 1 thought was a goes!
sign for one in mv debilitated condition
I continued to take it; the sickening
sensation departed and I was finally
able to retain food on my stomach. In
a few days I noticed a decided change
for the better, as also did my wife and
friends. My hiccoughs ceased and I ex
perienced less pain than formerly. I
was so rejoiced at this improved condi
tion that, upon what I had tielieved but

' Since mv recovery I have thoroughly
re-investigated the subject of kidnev dif
ficulties and Blight's disease, and the
truths developed are astounding. 1
therefore state, deliberately, and as a
physician, that I believe more than one
h'if the, ihailm which occur in America
are cmixi'tl In) lit iijht'n Wmiim of lite kid
ney. This may sound like a rash state
ment, but I nm prepared to fully verify
it. Blight's disease has no distinctive
features of its own, (indeed, it often
develops witbout any pain whatever in
the kidneys or their vicinity) but has
the symptoms of nearly every other com
mon" complaint. Hundreds of people
die daily, whose burials are authorized
bv a physician's certificate as occurring
from ""Heart Disease," "Apoplexy,"
"Paralysis," "Spinal Complaint,"
"Rheumatism," "Pneumonia," and
otlier common complaints, when in real
ity it is from Blight's disease of the kid
neys. Few physicians, and fewer peo
ple realize the extent of this disease or
its dangerous and insidious nature. It
steals into the system like a thief, mani
fests its pn sence if at all by the com
monest symptoms and fastens itself in
the constitution before the victim is
aware of it. It is nearly as hereditary
as consumption, quite as common anu
full yas fatal. Entire families.inheriting
it from their Ancestors, have died, and
yet none knew or realized the mysteri
ous power which was removing them.
Instead of common symptoms it often
shows none whatever, but brings death
suddenly, from convulsions, apoplexy,
or heart disease. As one who Las suf
fered, and knows by bitter experience
w hat he nvyi, 1 luiploio evwryone who
rendu these words not to neglect the
slightest symptsoiiiH of kidney difficulty.
No one can afford to hii.iird such
I make the foregoing statements based
upon facts w hich I run substantiate to
the letter. The welfare of those who
may possibly 1h Hutlerers such as I was,
is hu ample inducement for me to take
the step I have, and if I can successfully
warn others from the dangerous path in
which I once walked, 1 am willing to
endure all professional and personal con

Miss Wickert of Peru, Lu Salle county,
had Isien suH'ering for the last five years
from a large swelling in her left groin.
Six different physicians in Pent and I.a
Salle told her it was a rupture, und used
trusses on it. The pain caused by it
finally became so great that she could
scarcely walk. . She then consulted Dr.
Tool of Peoria, who immediately discov
ered that it was a tumor of the ovary.
As it was partly cvstie, the doctor (irt
performed electrolysis by means of his
galvanic battery on the cyst, and ufter
it had shrunken and the growth become
more movable he finished the operation
by removing the w hole tumor. The tu
mor measured 7- by 5 inches. The wound
is entirely healed," and Miss Wickert left
for Peru last week. J'eru Herald.
Dr. Toel is now located in Portland.
The tumor, with hundreds: of other min
cers and tumors successfully removed by
him by electricity without loss of blood,
can be seen in his office.

My wife was n great nuffiirer for ovi r
ten yeiiiM.w Ith a complication of dl (orders,
from which It socnicd aim was doomed, as
try what wo might In the line of doctors
appeared a failure. They were good doc
tors, too. Dr. Agnew of New York, w ho
Is world fumed, told her that without an
operation that would cost Iter $I,IHKI the
ease was Incurable, aad that even with so
operation I he cluiiueH were even only.
This was practically the statement nf nil
prominent physicians of the continent.
The principal trouble was an abscess
and distress In the region of I lie
kidneys. There was a constant hemor
rhage; we thought shi' would bleed Io
death; her i lie-.t was as sore as a boll, and
she was purl hilly piirnlyxrd, besides Imv
tog cAiarrh of the bladder, Wo prepared
for the Inevitable, when Dr. Price of Seal
He told us that he knew of some remark
able cures by Dr J. Kugeno Jordan with
his new system of medicine. We, there
fore, gave him a trial, and the result Is
that my wife has completely recovered, It
la evident that Dr. Jordan's nymcui sur
passes In theory and practice the vast and
the future. I nn. ('. Waiihwhhi h,
