A Habit to Be Encouraged.
The mother who has acquired the
habit of keeping on hand a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, saves
herself a great amount of uneasiness
and anxiety. Coughs, colds and croup
to which children are susceptible are
quickly cured by its use. It counter
acts any tendency of a cold to result
in pneumonia, and If given as soon as
the first symptoms of croup appear, it
will prevent the attack. This remedy
contains nothing injurious and moth

Lardner, in conversation with an Ar
gus representative this morning, de
clared that no options had been given,
but did not deny that the deal was well
on tho way. All that he would say
for publication was that if the purchase
was made it would involve several mil
lion of dollars and be a good thing for
the local properties, and hence for the
people, and whatever , might happen.

the affected corporations would con

While officials of the local corpora-
lions have changed from tho flat de
nials of tho original siories to extrt-me
reticence on the subject, it comes on
reliable authority that the eastern cap
italists who are anxious to acquire the
properties have gone so far as to de
posit in a New York financial institu
tion a fair sized wad of money as an
evidence of good faith.
It is also asserted that the price
fixed for the stock of the Tri-City Rail
way company is $100 per share and of
the Peoples Light company, of Davcn-
Iort, $1S0 per share. The option, it is
! said, is good till April 1. and if the
money is not ready to close by that
time the deal will be off.
W oiild o lie I'opulnr.
Notwithstanding such a deal would
probably prove a handsome thing for
the stockholders, it would not, as Th-;
Argus has heretofore asserted, be pop
ular in a general sense with the peo
ple. As a cold business proposition, it
is nobody's business other than of the
men who have their money invested
and who will naturally dispose of their
holdings advantageously jf the chance
comes their way. The exceptional priv
ileges which the Tri-City Railway com
pany enjoys here are such" as
perhaps few corporations could have
secured, and wera awarded as an evi
dence of public approval of an institu
tion that has been singularly fair and
liberal with the people, and not with
any thought, then, at Ipast, that the
rights acquired were for speculative
purposes, although a new company
may prove as enterprising as the chief
of the corporations involved in the ex
isting negotiations. The consolidated
railways of the tri-cities passed into the
hands of outside capital at a time when
it meant everything to the plants and to
the three cities. The facilities provided
have since been ahead of the communi
ties served, and as far as the public
end of the proposition is concerned,
conditions today are the reverse of
what they were when the first syndi
cate was formed.
But that, as the phrase goes, cuts no
ice now. The legal status of the deal
out of the question, it will probably go
through if the would-be purchasers so
