Peter Sommers states to The Argus
that he knows to a certainty that Abra
ham Lincoln delivered an address in
Rock Island, speaking at the northeast
corner of the old court house square
in October, 1858. Mr. Sommers says
he was present, heard the speech and
distinctly remembers incidents con
nected with the occasion.
H. S. Powars stated today that he
was certain that Lincoln never spoke in
Rock Island. Mr. Powars was brought
here by his parents in lSI'.fi when he
was but one year of age, and has lived
here ever since. He accompanied his
! grandfather to the convention that nom
inated Lincoln for the presidency in
18C0, the trip being taken especially so
that the elder Mr. Powars, who was an
admirer of the emancipator, might, see
him. no opportunity having been afford
ed before that time. If Lincoln had
been in Rock Island Mr. Powars says
his grandfather would not have gone

By the Use of the New Scalp Anti
It wouldn't take long to number the
hairs iu the heads of some people, thj
reason being they haven't many t )
number. In most instances, however,
the fault is their own. A germ at tho
root soon plays havoc with the mos;
luxuriant growth and causes it to fade
and fall out. A remedy for this ha.i
recently been discovered, called New
bro's Herpicide, that acts by destroy
ing the germ that does the damage
besides removing all impurities from
the scalp. In addition it permits new
life and vigor to enter the scalp, and
happy results are sure to be obtained
from its use. Try it. Sold by leading

American Occupation for Cuba.
Whether the occupation of Cuba by
the United States forces will prove
eventually a good thing or not, it is a
very costly luxury. The actual cost for
using a portion of our army as insular
police is at least $5.0iW),000 a year be
sides other expenses which have to be
mt out of the Cuban treasury. Wheth

A Certain Cure for Croup Used far
Ten Years Without a Failure.
W. C. Bott, a Star City, Ind., hard

praise of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy. His children have all been sub
ject to croup and he has used this
remedy for the past 10 years, and
though they much feared the croup,
his wife and he always felt safe upon
retiring when a bottle of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy was in the house.
His oldest child was subject to severe
attacks of croup, but this remedy
never failed to effect a speedy cure.
He has recommended it to friends and
neighbors and all who have used it say
that it is unequaled for croup and
whooping cough. For sale by all drug
