THE BOCK IStANlV ARQU8. Fill DAY,' APRIL, 5, 1889.
A flowery eeerlpttea of the Sw.
paper It lafleeaee Placa la
rr ef tbe.Prof raatoa.
At a banquet given to tbe Business
Men's Association of Davenport by
Manager Crank of the Kimball house,
Wednesday night. B. F. Tillinghast,
managing editor of the Demoorat-Qatttt
and well known in this city, responded
to the toast, "Tbe Pre.-s." Tbe address,
coming at it does, from one of the most
practical, tnorough and successful jour
nalists In the west, may be regarded, as
'it indeed is, one of the best descriptions
of the newspaper, its position, influence
and policy. This was tbe toast:
"No more truthful sentiment can be
expressed than found in tbe words of
Wendell Phillips, from which I quote.
"What gunpowder did for war the print,
ing press has done for the mind, and tbe
statesmsn is no longer clad in tbe iteel
of special education, but every rending
man is bis judge." And from another
eminent author. "The productions of
the press, fast as steam can make and
carry tbem, go abroad through tbe land
silent aa snow-flakes, bin potent as
And this was tbe response made by
Mr. Cblrmn and Gemlsuisn of the Davenport
Buatnasa Men's Association:
It may appear strange to you when 1
say that the banqueting board which we
surround reminds me very much of a
good newspaper. There have been
spread before us with lavish hand and in
admirable taste, the good things of life.
These have been cooked to a turn, spiced
to a nicety, and flavored to fit tbe most
capricious, fancy. There has been noth
ing left out, and nobody has been libeled.
There have been meats for the strong,
alads for the social, and the stuff of life
for all. Under one cover you have found
politics, and under another the law. In
the courses as tbey have been served
were the quotations of the stock board,
the records of congress, in brief, all the
delicacies of tbe journalistic menu. It
would be unwise, as well as dangerous,
to try to assimilate all the dishes
that hospitality has placed before
ua. This is why I have thought of
tbe table and the press as having pointa
in comiron. Every paragraph found in
the paper that ought to come with the
coffee in the morning and with the tea in
tbe evening is not prescribed for all.
One's meat is another's poison. Take
wbat you like, remembering that many
men have many minds, and that while
some of the dishes, as an old philosopher
ssys of books, are to be tasted, others
may be swallowed, and some chewed and
digested. It is this wide range that
crowds the columns, or at least fills the
pages of the daily sheet, making it la
truth a map of tbe busy life.
Diverse are the views that have been
given of tbe mission of the press. A
commander of armies linked it with war
when he said: "Four hostile newspapers
are more to be feared than a thousand
bayonets." But the French emperor was
banished, aa every editor ought to be who
sways bis power like a despot. A critic
who spoke from tbe platform in this city
a few evenings since thought tbe newt
paper should not be "a stagnant goose
pond of village gossip." But be bor
rowed tbe words from a keen satirist, wbo
applied them to human sponges and not
to men of business affairs. Tbe states
man would have this great ear-gallery
filled with justice, law and liberty, for
getting that tbe world is governed too
much. And tbe theorist preaches that
tbe press should always be an engine to
elevate tbe people and mould tbem by
giving dally precepts from the moral
cod. Those views have dinned our
ears with such persistence that deafness,
I fear, comet like a relief when a gener
oua sentiment honors tbo press at tucb a
time at this.
Rather than adopt any of these opin
ions I thall choose a more modern motto
It it this: "The greatest happiness of
the greatest number." Tbe best office of
a newspaper is to represent well the in
terests of itt time and place. To collect
tbe newt from the ends of tbe earth; to
outrun Puk by putting a girdle round
about tbe earth in less than forty min
utes. Tbe time may have been when the
editor wat an oraele, but it it a watte of
good lntentioni to to regard him now.
He knowt no more than the average of
bit readers. Be must give without re
bate all be gets or be a laggard in tbe
close contett. He must be "a brioger of
unwelcome news," as well aa a courier of
glad tiding!, more than thie, be mutt be
moved, governed, thoroughly saturated
with that feeling and pride of local loy
alty that devotion to home and borne in
terests that is akin to family ties. The
editor cannot be a hermit. He must
know, and be known of, men. He mutt
share their aspirations, be acquainted
with their plans, and be guided by their
wisdom. He is a part of the community
in which be lives, and though he should
not govern, be may help to lead the
In more direct words, Mr. Chairman
and gentlemen, the. press begs to be con
aidered, sot your teivant, but your help
er. It tenders freely its services to pro
mote tbe common good. Alone It can
achieve little, but with your cooperation
the mountain may be moved. The press
is not planted on a pedestal; It rests on
tbe same level with every interest here
Gentlemen, tbe press awaits
Warner's Log Cabin remedies old
fashioned, simple compounds, used in the
days of our hardy forefathers, are "old
timers" but "old reliable." They com
prise Warner's Log Cabin Barsaparilla,
"Hops and Buchu remedy," "Cough and
Consumption remedy," "Hair Tonic,''
"Extract," for external and internal use,
"Plasters," "Rose Cream," for catarrh,
and "Liver Pills." They are put up by
H. H. Warner & Co., proprietors of
Warner's Safe remedies, and promise to
equal the standard value of those great
preparations. All druggists keep them.

. These, if existent in a natural quantity,
and un vitiated by bile, play their part in
the functions of digestion and assimllat
tion. . But tbe artificial acid resulting
from the inability of the stomach to con
vert food received by it into sustenance,
is tbe producer of flatulence and heart
burn, which " are the most harratslng
symptoms of dyspepsia. The best
carminative is Hosteller's Stomach Bit
ters. Far more effective is it than car
bonate of soda, magnesia or other alka
line salts. These invariably weaken the
stomach without producing permanent
benefit. No man or woman chronically

The Impressions made in tbe home are

How important, therefore, that the

possible a haven of loving counsel, of
peace and joy to the growing children.
How sad when death invades, when the
fire goes out on the hearth-stone and the
family is scattered. What the children
lose by tbe death of a parent only those
realize who have grown up without that
love and advice which a parent alone can
No doubt, tens of thousands of pars
enta have found premature graves, who
might have lived years of usefulness, bad
tbey but known what was sapping their
strength, and slowly but surely pushing
them into tbe grave.
There are tens of thousands of paren ts
today in agony of mind through fear of
death from kidney disease, who do not
know ttey are doctoring only symptoms
such as wakefulness, nervousness, a
splendid feeling one day and an all gone

pneumonia, neuralgia, fickle appetite,
etc., while tbe real trouble ia poiaoned

tbey will just as surely die as though
poisoned with arsenic.
If you are suffering as described, and
have been for any length of time, you
are. unless you get relief right speedily,
stricken with death, whether you know it
Doctors publicly admit that they cans
not cure advanced kidney disease; they
are too bigoted to use Warner's Safe
Cure because It is an advertised remedy;
consequently, unless you U9e your own
good judgment, secure and use Warner's
Safe Cure, a specific, which has proved
iuolf in tens of thousands of cae9 to be

your death, will be broken up and your
loved ones deprived of that which money

premature graves through ignorance of
their condition, and tbVbigoiry of physi

Tired all the Time
"I had no arpetlte or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. I had tried several
kinds of medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Flood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."

Everybody needs and should take a good
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The impurities which have accumulated
in the blood should be expelled, and the sys
tem given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Ilood's Sarsaparilla is the best spring medi
cine. A single trial will convince you of its
superiority. Take it before it Is too late.
The licet Sprlno Medicine
"I take IIiod's Sarsaparilla for a spring
medicine, and I find it just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feel like a differ
ent mau. Xy wife takes it for dyspepsia, and
she derives grer.t beneOt from it. She says it
is the test medicine she ever took." F. C.
Tcbner, nook & Ladder No. 1, Boston, Mass.
"Last spring I was troubled with boils,
caused by my blood being out of order. Two
bottles of Ilood's Sarsaparilla cured me. I
can recommend it to all troubled with affec
tions of the blood." J. Schoch, Peoria, 111.
