Much praise has been lestowed in
the past two days upon the aldermen
who stood firmly ami vonscientiously
for the v ontinnation of paving im
provements Monday night. These
aldermen hare taken a stand that it
is to be hoped there will be no devia
tion from in future paving ordi
nances. They have had the conrage
to stand by conviction, as to what
constitutes public welfare.
C. W. Williams, of Independence,
Iowa, w ill remove to Galesburg, 111.,
if the people will accede to a proposi
tion made by him which is as follows:
That the people buy him a farm con
tiguous to Galesbnfg for $24,0;)0 and
sell it to him on three years' time
without interest; the people to spend
30.000 on the farm to transform it
into a race track and fair grounds,
and to pay the expense of moving
there. Many Galesburg residents
favor accepting the proposition, and
a committee of 10 has been appointed
to raise the money within the stipu
lated time, which expires March 10.
The Union hastens to the defense
of Aid. Kennedy's course Monday
night, in seeking to delay the passage
of the last section of the Seventeenth
street paving ordinance. That was
to be expected in these political
times, but it will take more of an ar
gument than the Union is capable of
grinding out to excuse Kennedy to
his constituents for the inconsisten
cy of his course, or make them be
lieve that he did not deliberately
lend himself to a scheme to thwart
the passage of the last section of the
ordinance entirely. The cry of the
forlorn hope is always "wait" and
Kennedy knows it.
Ir. Cntrn'a Infirmary.
There is a movement on foot among
several of our wealthiest and most
influential business men and live or
six leading physicians to persuade
Dr. W. 6. Co'ffee. the oculist, to
move his eye and car infirmary and
locate in this city. Several of them
have called on the doctor, and asked
him to do so, but he has refused, but
thev are making a general movement
anJ are going to offer every induce
ment to the doctor to do so. It is a
great compliment, and the doctor
appreciates it very much, and it is
something that never has been done
in this city before. But we will sav
that Rock Island needs just such
men as Dr. Coffee, lie is undoubted
ly one of the leading and most pro
gressive eye and car men in the Uni
ted States, lie came here a stranger
and in a short time stories of his
skill in eye and ear diseases began to
spread, until his consulting rooms
were crowded each clay. Sixty pa
tients a day for the last two weeks:
came very near breaking the doctor
down last week, and he telegraphed
to Chicago for an assistant. Dr.
Coffee's late discoveries in the treat
ment of deafness put him at the head
of the medical profession in that line,
and we certainly have seen some
cures i f deaf people which seems
marvelous at this nge. We know
even many of his patients that have
been to Chicago and spent hundreds
of dollars in treatment for deafness,
and were cured by Dr. Coffee in two
or three treatments. We hope thev
will succeed. Hock Island will be
the gainer. The doctor is a man of
considerable means, principally in
vested in real estate. Dr. Coffee
will be here until Satnrdav.

The board of health of St. Louis

Many a home has been rendered
sad and desolate by the loss of some
dear, petted child. This is a dan
gerous season for children, and par
ent should keep Dr. Bull's Cough
Syrup hand 7.
Brings comfort and Improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The many," who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's lst products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
remctty, Syrup of Figs
Its es-x-ilence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the ref re-shing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax
ative ; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and "fevers
ana permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Fijrs is for sale by all drug
gists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is man
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
package, alo the name, Syrup of Figs,
and being well ir.formed.'you will not
accept any substitute if offered.
