A Word A Done Woodcraft.
Rock Island, Feb. 9. Editor of
The Abocs: In the interest of
Woodcraft and especially the mem
bership in Rock Island county, per
mit the writer to correct an errone.
ous impression liable to obtain
through your editorial of the 3d inst.
entitled "Ways of Woodmen: The
state camp meeting at Springfield,
etc" I refer to that paragraph
therein, which intimatea that "there
was a spirit of unexpected narrow
ness and clannishness exhibited in
some quarters, etc.," and attributes
the same to the ambition of an aspir
ant for a minor head office. It is
the inalienable right of any person
to be a candidate for any office within
the gift of the constituency such
person represents, and no one pos
sesses a monopoly in this direction.
In 1895-a prominent neighbor of the
county was a candidate before the
head camp for one of the most im
portant as well as lucrative offices in
the gift of the order, and received a
generous support for the position.
Nothing was more natural than that
in 1897 he should renew his candi
dacy, and with excellent prospects
for success. The advisability of the
indorsement of candidates from the
county for two important head offices
being discussed, the concensus of
opinion (dne to the unsettled statue
of the head office building) was ad
verse thereto. This conclusion be
ing made known to the neighbor
referred to, and his supporters in
deference thereto voluntarily and in
the interest of harmony, withdrew
his name 'with" the understanding
that at the next succeeding head
camp (conditions at present prevail
ing being removed) he would receive
the support of the county delegation.
In justice to the neighbor referred
to in your said article, and in fur
therance of the spirit of fraternity
which underlies true woodcraft, we
ask the publication of this explana
tion. Very trnly yours,
C. W. IUwis,
s Head Clerk.
The Mount Lebanon Shaken have
invented a great many valuable
thiciga. They were the first to make
brooms by machinery; the first to
put up seeds in little packages; the
first to manufacture cut pails,.
Now they are out with a method of
curing dyspepsia ' by ' resting the
stomach. Their remedy ia known as
the Shaker Digestive Cordial. It
supplies food in- aa artificially di
gested form and at the -same time
aids the digestioaof other foods ia the
stomach..- in other words, by- the
nse of the Shaker Digestive Cordial,
a dyspeptin virtually gets along with,
ont the aae of his stomach nntil it is
restored to iU natural strength and
vigor. A single 10 eeat bottle will
oft-times give marked relief. Get a
