POET GAULT DIES
Man Who Wrote "Twenty Years
Ago" a Resident of Clin
ENGAGED IN NEWSPAPER BUSINESS
Bat Few Hereabout Knew He Was
Author of Famoui
Few, if any, of the thousands re
siding in and about Rock Island who
have read those touching- verses in
the old sehoolday poem of "Twenty
Years Ago" know that the author of
these lines that have left their im
press on the hearts and minds of
good men and great was a resident
of Wheatland, in Clinton county,
A. J. Gault, who wrote the poem,
died at his home there last Wednes
day. In speaking of his death the
Clinton Age says: "lie was one of
the county's oldest, best known and
respected residents. During the war
he published the Clinton . County Ad
vocate at Wheatland, and in 18S1 es
tablished the Spectator. Through
these mediums he became endeared
to a large circle of friends through
out the county and state, as his beau
tiful poems reached the threshhold of
many a home and the verses were so
touching' that many knew them word
for word. Probably his masterpiece
is that beautiful little poem on na
ture, 'Twenty Years Ago, which" is
known to every reader of the English
language and was published in the
Nightingale series of school songs.
"The poem brings one back to the
scenes, of childhood, to the old school
house, the tree under which so manj'
happy hours were spent, 'the brook,
'grapevine swing,' the 'bench, on
which 'their sweetheart's names were
cut, the 'benches their jaekknives
had defaced.' making it a masterpiece
in American literature: One of the
favorite songs of Abraham Lincoln
was 'Twenty Years Age 'The lines
sunk into hy? memory and.he.ipioted
them as If to himself long after first
hearing jt, savs the biographer f the
L.fe-of Lincoln. The poem was pub
lished, anonymously and not until re
cently was the author's name made
Sw Yorker By Birth
"A. J. Gault' was born in Jackson,
Washington county. X. Y., Oct. 4,
181S, soon afterwards moving with
his-parents to Arlington, Vt,-where
he resided until he was 23 years of
acre. He attended school until 16
years of age; aiterwards he became
astudent of nature and spent many
of his leisure hours wandering
through the fields and forests, among
the green hills of Vermont, and catch
ing speckled trout, lie was a Student
of nature, and here durtrfgTsfroy
hood days many of his best poems
were written. The poem was a letter
written to his brother Tom. who was
living in Oswego, X. Y.. anil "had been
neglectful in writing home. At the
time of Tom's death several years
ago he left the letter to his sister in
Kansas, which she retaintd 12 'years
"He came to Clinton in 1855, and to
Wheatland' in 1S5.S, helping build the
railroad to the latter point;. He was
united in marriage to Miss Alice Col
by in ISjG. one son, A. W. (iault, being
born, who is now editor of the Cala
mus Record. She died 19 years ago.
In 1880 he married Mrs. Anna Meyer,
who survives him. In the death of
the author of 'Twenty Years Ago'
Clinton county loses one of its ol.lest
and best known residents."
SIMPLE CATARRH REMEDY.
Just Breathe Hyomei Four Times a Day
and lie Cored.
If a few years ago some one had
said you can cure catarrh by breath
ing air charged with a healing balm,
the idea would have been ridiculed
and it remained for It. T. Booth, that
eminent investigator, to discover in
Hyomei this method' of cure.
Hyomei has performed the most mi
raculous uures of catarrh and is to
day recoginzed by leading members of
the medical profession as the only
advertised remedy that can be re
lied upon, to flo just what it claims.
The' complete outfit of Hyomei costs
but $1.00 and consists -of an inhaler, a
medicine dropper and a bottle of Hyo
- Rreatbe Hyomei through the inhal
er for a few minutes four times a day
and it will cure the worst case of cat
arrh. It sooths and heals the mu
cous membrane of the air passages,
prevents irritation, and effects a com
plete and lasting cure.
The treasurer of the American Life
Insurance company. J. S. Nugent, of
New York, writes: "Hyomei has com
pletely , cured my daughter of cat
arrh from which she has been a suf
ferer for years."
In Rock Island there are scores of
well known people who say they have
been cured of catarrh by Hyomei. If
It does not cure you, T. 11. Thomas
will return the money yen paid for
Hyomei. This is the strongest evi
dence that can be offered as to their
faith in the remedy.
The scratch of a pin may cause the
loss of a limb or even death when
blood poisoning- results from the in
jury. All danger of this may be
avoided, however, by promptly apply
ing Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It is
an antiseptic and unequalled as a
quick healing liniment for cuts,
bruises and burns. For sale by all

PRESIDENT I0UBET MAY
BE ROCK ISLAND'S GUEST
A visit from President Loubet, of
the French republic, is one of the pos
sibilities that the year 1904 holds out
to liock Island, and to some of the
other more important cities along the
upper Mississippi river as well.
It is well known that the chief ex
ecutive of France has. made definite
plans to visit the 1-ousiana Purchase
exposition at St. Louis next year.
The fact that France was the nation
from which the territory i f Louisiana
was bought 100 years ago, renders it
particularly fitting that he should do
Being a man of an inquiring turn
of mind, and one deeply interested in
history. President Loubet has planned
iot only to attend the St. Louis ex
position, but to see something of the
Mississippi valley that was first ex
plored and scatteringly settled by his
countrymen. In order to do this in
the most effective manner it is report
ed that he intends traveling to the
headwaters of the river by rail and
beginning at Trempealeau, Wis.,
where the earliest French explorers
made their headquarters, view the
ruins of the old fort there, and
journey thence by water down to St.
Louis, stopping at the more impor
tant points of interest along the way.
including liock Island city and arsen
al. President Loubet expects to reach
this country about June 13. and his
isit to the upper river points should
be timed about July 4.

There are two .things that the whole

ease to T.'hich the people in tho United
States are subject. All classes of people
have it. Those who stay indoors much
and those who go outdoors much.
Working classes have it and sedentary
classes have it.

which all doctors agree, is that it Is dif"

give relief but they fail to cure perma

little or nothing except to give tempo
Catarrh is frequently located in inter
nal organs which cannot lo reached by
any sort of local treatment. All this is
known by every physician.
To devise some systemic internal rem
edy Thieh would reach catarrh at its
source, to eradicate it permanently from
the system this has been the desTro of
the medical profession for a long time.
Forty years ago Dr. Hartman confronted
this problem. He believed then that ho
had solved it. 'He still believes he has
solved it. He cures thousands of peoplo
annually. During all these years Pe
runa has been the remedy upon which
he has relied.
It was at first a private prescription,
afterwards manufactured expressly for
him in large quantities. This remedy,
Peruna, is now to be found in every drug
store and nearly every home In the land.
It is tho only reliable internal remedy
ever devised to cure any case of catarrh,
