Sweet charity, noblest of Christian at
tributes, received an unkindly blow last
night and today li.ys trembling and gasp
inn under the shook. St. Lake's hospi
tal ball at the Harper was a failure not
however as a sociable event was it so, but
in the extent theieof and in the financial
outcome, did it ft.ll below the anticipa
tions of the ladies of the guild who have
labored so unselfishly and unreservedly
for this most benevolent and humane
cause. The misfortune which haa at
tended the guild's enterprise ia traceable
to no other instrumentality than the pe
ouliar light in when Mr. Marquis of the
Broadway church placed not only the
dance but those bo participate in it, in
his sermon last Sunday night. The Abous
does not belieye tint the very discourag
ing results which have attended these
last efforts on the part of the
guild, are due to convincing ar
gument as agaiist the dance. Mr.
Mcldrum and Mi. Leland both made as
strong arguments discourses as Mr. Mar
quis did. but tbtv did not charge the
amusement with the same evils, nor cast
tbesame reflections upon those who
might participate in it that Mr. Marquis
did. They did -not entertain the same
thoughts on the s abject.
Though the morning paper censures the
Argus for giving publicity to Mr. Mar
quis' sensational views it did so in
a spirit of unbiased enterprise and
we do not believe, widely as have
the distinguished divine's sentiments
been circulated thereby, that the dance
has lost any of its charm or popularity.
There is no mom conscientious opposi
tion to it than there was prior to the ser
mon's delivery ai d publication, but the
mantel of shams which Mr. Marquis
sought to place upon the young people
who would attend, caused many young
ladies whose beau' y and grace are familiar
to the ball room to absent themselves on
this particular occasion. One fact that
sustains this assertion was the presence
of a great number of regular church going
married people, who have sons and
daughters in society the parents were
present but the children were absent be
cause they were not desirous of subject
ing themselves to evil eye or suggestive
thought. The A sous believes too, that
the near future w: 11 show that the in
fluence of the sermon alluded to, haa not
been to make new impressions of ball
room festivities and enjoyments, and that
the consequences will affect only the ob
ject of last night's event and not the ball
or those who have always entertained
only the purest thoughts of morality and
propriety regarding it.
Arrangements l.ad been made on a
most elaborate ssale, the dining hall
being thrown opei to the dancers with
Schillinger's orchestra stationed at the
south end. Tne ladies ordinary was
used for the st rvmg of refreshments.

SUBURBAN SLAUGHTER TENS.
What Kind of Heat Da We Consowe?
Am. Import aat Qneatiem to Com
aider. The more the public learns of the re
ported condltien of certain slaughter
houses in the suburbs of town, the more
indignation and alarm prevails, and the
more is the council censured for not hav
ing taken some action to protect the citi
zens against impure and disease infected
meat, if not to abate the nuisances com
plained of. In sanitary measures the
city has jurisdiction to the extent of a mile
bevond the corporate limits. The
city did not assert its rights in the prem
ises through the medium of the common
council last Monday night, preferring
rather to falder the responsibility of
putting aNtop to the nuisances com
plained of on to the South Rock Island
authorities. From this it is apparent
that either the township of South Rock
Island must move in its interests or the
obnoxions concerns may continue on
The Argus reiterates that it believes
the council, whether knowingly or not,
has acted very recklessly in this matter.
Even though the city be disposed to act
cautiously, it might in all consistency
with such a course, and in the interests of
the sanitary welfare of the city, wain the
keepers of these slaughter bouses that
it any more complaint comes of them,
they will be compelled to move beyond
the line to which the city's jurisdiction
extends. It is the belief that the city
might pursue such a course without fear
of "injunction." The question is one that
the city cannot afford to trifle with and
it is essential to the maintenance of the
city's sanitary standard that some steps
should be taken pending the ruling of
the supreme court in the abattoir issue.
Homes That EIve Long-.
An interesting and, at the same time,
amusing conversation took place yester
day afternoon between two Davenport
gentlemen on a Third street car. One of
them had recently been in Keokuk. He
stated that it was the deadest town be
ever struck. "Why," said he, "I have
heard people kick about some of the ani
mala that pull the cars on this line, but
they would never murmur if they went
to Eeokuft. Our street car horses are
prize winners at a fat stock show, they
are spirited three year olds or blooded
stock, compared with the poor, miser
able, bony excuses that do the work
for the Keokuk Street Railway com
pany. Why, I'll tell what is a fact.
When drivers stop the cars, pedes
trians, who happen near, go out in the
road and give it a push before the trip
can be continued. Most of the animals
are so old that they have no teeth. I
asked a citizen how tbey were fed."
"He said: 'You must be a stranger in
these parts. Well, there's no harm in
telling. Those horses (T) were imported.
They eat only once a week. How is it
done? The food is masticated with a
mechanical device' and forced into the
horse's stomach through a rubber hose .
When you want to learn how to do busi
ness youv'e got to come to this town;
ain't I right, stranger?' n
"These were the exact words of my in
formant, and if I ever hear anybody kick
about Davenport street car horses, I will
just tell them how they are fixed down at
We have received a new book with the
above title written by F, D. Clum, M. D
and published by the J. B. Lippincott
Co. It is the latest work on the subject
and is sold by all booksellers.
"There is no topic." says the School
Journal, commenting on the work, "more
vital, or one more plainly before all
thoughtful persons today, than the one
so ably discussed by Dr. Clum In this
volume. In it he gives a clear, correct,
and impartial view, and treats the sub
ject from a scientific standpoint, giving
true colors to the habitual drinknr. The
doctor has made this point a special study,
and fully understands the drinker's habits.
diseases, misfortunes and miseries, and
is consequently well preoured to point
out the best remedy. The cause of the
morbid craving, lack of will power,
and the ungovernable appetite are
clearly explained, and it is the doctor's
opiaion that the most confirmed drunk
ard can be reformed if the directions laid
down in this book be carried out. Every
point in the drinker's career is touched:
the alluring evils of moderate drinking
are fully explained and the way by which
they may be avoided. Twenty-one chap
ters are full of all that is vital upon this
important subject. Inebriety as a dis
ease is fully treated, showing how mh d
and body are connected. Home life, its
influence and power for good, are shown
in one chapter; another treats of drinking
among women and female inebriates, and
there is not one of the twenty-one chap
ters that does not teach a valuable les
son. Any one may be profited by read
ing this book carefully and thoughtfully."
Care of the Profession.
"Yes," said a young editor on one
of the morning newspapers of Davenport
a few minutes after he had returned from
Tuesday night's banquet given in honor of
the press, and as he put his mucilage brush
in the ink bottle and tried to paste on a
clipping with a stub pen, "yes, the great
fault of newspaper contributors is care
lessness. Indeed." he continued, as he
dropped the copy he had been writing in
to the waste basket, and marked 'Editor
ial' across the corner of a poem entitled
an 'Ode to Death.' "contributors are ter
ribly careless. You would be surprised,"
said he, as he clipped a column of fash
ion items and labeled them 'Farm Notes,'
to see the slipshod writing that comes
into this editorial sanctum. Mispelled,
unpunctuated, written on both aides of
the sheet, illegible, ungrammatical stuff.
Contributors are terribly careless. Tbey
are" just then the office boy came, in
that dictatorial and autocratic manner be
has, and demanded more copy, and the
editor handed him the love letter he had
just written his girl, and as he had for
gotten what he was talking about, went
on with his efforts to faithfully write up
the big dinner he had just partaken lav
