Wonder if Congressman Prince
will get the Kock Island postoffice as
effectually off his hands as he has the
one at Galesburg?
It it now feared that King Oscar
will not attend the meetings of the
arbitration committee in parson. In
stead of being on hand with his crown
in a bandbox, and his ermine robes
concealed beneath a mackintosh, he
will tend a proxy. This is a real
The Union has come ont at last with
an explanation in detail of the reso
lutions of the Galva congressional
convention two years ago, of which
the editor of the morning sheet was
the author. The public is indebted
to The Argus for accomplishing
what the Knox con nty delegation in
the convention demanded without
success the explanation. It is a lit
tle lte but not so much so for the
Union, by the way.
In an interview in the Washington
Times before election Robert .
Joyce, of Andrew J. Joyce's Sons,
carriage makers, said: "In the
event of Bryan's election my busi
ness would go to the dogs; that's
about the sum and substance of it. I
do not expect I would be able to re
main in business at all." Two days
after the election Andrew J. Joyce's
tons, carriage makers, failed. And
llryan wasn't elected, either. And
that is one sin he will not bave to
Senok Duply de Lome is reported
to have said that war between this
country and Spain was possible
and to bave added: "It would be a
terrible one. One can foresee its be
ginning, but not its end." This is
fanny, and it is also good evidence
of the shortness of the Spanish vis
ion. Every one outside Spain knows
that the end would come as quickly
as it did when the Prussians overran
France. But the minister's remark
has a value, nevertheless, for it
shows that perhaps nothing short of
war will make his countrymen real
ice what a small factor they are in
the world of today. A country that
canmt control its own possessions
would have big time tussling with

Here it is, from the New York Sun:
Trusts have come naturally and
necessarily with the evolution of civ
ilization, to whose advancement thev
contribute directly by the concentra

their more effective use for the wel

trusts tell quite another story. Tbe
man who goes down into his pocket
and pays 8 a ton for coal is not
blesing the trust that ordains it,
and so it is on every side. There
are now over one hundred and eigh
ty trusts that make life a burden to
hocest labor, and now they are de
fended as a necessary result of evolu

Two blithe and confident young men

ROCK ISLAND HAS BEEN QUICK
THE HONEST EFFORTS OF AN
Mirit Alone, Backed Up by Indis
The Fair and Open Test ot His Great
sedical Discovery Heartily
A few davs ago tbe papers of Rock
Island gave public notice that Dr.
Hobbs, the well-known specialist in
diseases of the kidneys, had made a
discovery which, if bis claims could
be substantiated, would revolution
ize the treatment of all kidney dis
eases. In order that tbe public might
be given the beneht ot this discovery
without cost, they were not only
asked but urged to call at T. U
Thomas1 drug store, corner Second
avenue and Seventeenth atreet, and
get a trial packa? of Dr. Hobbs'
Sparagus Kidney Pills.
In this way it would enable every
one to form his own judgment a, to
the value of this medicine. Does
any sane man or woman believe for
one moment that any physician
would dare to so openly challenge
public opinion were he not absolutely
certain of his ground? Reflect a
moment acd consider this point care
fully. The avidity with which people
from all grades of society, from tbe
elite to the humblest, availed them
selves of Dr. Hobbs' effer, affords
some startling figures of the great
numbers afflicted with kidney dis
eases in this section.
THINK OF IT! 658 SAMPLE
of Dr. Hobbt' Spars? us Kidney Pl.ls
were given out at T. H. Thomas'
pharmacy, corner of Second avenue
and Seventeenth street, to 658 appli
cants in one day, every one of whom
was willing to give Dr. Hobbs Pills
a fair test.
The free test called for no restiic
tions. Physicians were not barred
in fact, they were welcome and, as
still further proof of this, while the
free distribution ot samples endel at
1. u. 1 nomas' pharmacy, corner of
Stcond avenue and Seventeenth
street, (as has been previously tn-
nocncHd) a lew days since. Dr.
Hobbs' representative will even now
be glad to famish free to all physi
cians who bave not applied a suffi
cient quantity ci ur 11 abbs' Spara
gus Kidney Pills to make such tests
as in their judgment may seem
necessary in fact, the fullest and
most searching investigation is most
co dially extended to them, as well
as to the public.
