Of the late J. M . D. Burrows, of DaT

yesterday, the Democrat' Gazette says:
John McDowell Burrows is . dead. A
roan of big heart, of honest impulses, of
deathless energy. one who for 50 years
has been actively and thoroughly identi

gone to his reward. The people mourn
for him, for be was good a cheerful man.

who loved his neighbor as himself,

means, whose public spirit and benevo
lence was like the breath he drew.
Mr. Burrows was a pioneer la D&ven

earnest, restless, unselfish business man,
whose hands were ever building up and
helping to make homes more plentiful

1S89 a young man then of 23. He was
born in ElizaheMitown, New Jersey, May
8, 1814. In 1814 he went with his par
ents to Cincinnati, and at the age of 17
was sent to Lane seminary to" prepare for
we ministry pursuing that course for
two years, but leaving it to take up
Coming to Davenport he purchased an
80 acre tract in what is now the
western part of this city, and beneath
the bluff built a snug cottage beneath
the eminence upon which in 1868 he
built the finest mansion in the country
"Clifton," where he hoped to spend
long useful years. After some time SDent
in farming he came into the city, went
into commercial life, opening a large
general merchandise store in which with
the late It. M. Prettyman, he did
mighty trade. He dealt in country rro
duce far and wide, built the Albion flour
mills, the greatest on the river above St
Louis, built blocks of stores, warehouses.

turned the produce of this teeming region
into piles or cash, in 1858 he had be

was engaged in many an enterprise
building, manufacturing, shipping and
In 1857 a financial panic struck the
country and he had so many "ships at
sea" wbicb never came to port, that in
less than a tenth of the time that it took
to raise his fortune, the whole was swept
away a perfect mass of wreck. How he
struggled to retrieve his fallen fortunes;
how be built new mills and strove in
many ways to .gain his feet once more is
full well known, and how, in these score
of later years he wrought both early and
late to gain an honest living in his de
clining years, is known to every one.
Following up his financial disasters
came the death of his beloved wife,
Sarah Meeker (Oamage) Burrows, who
had been his constant help since their
happy marriage in Cincinnati, December
1st, 1886. She died in January. 1876.
She was the mother of eleven children,
all of whom, one by one, died leaving
him alone wifeless, childless a man of
many sorrows. How be bore up under
ma arcictions, how he sustained the load
and kissed the rod that smote him every
day, is too well known to call for repeti
tion. Some years ago he married an es
timable woman, Mrs. Ilersh, and con
tinued on in his broken, earnest life un
til prostrated by age and bodily infirmi
ties he succumbed. He moved to Rock
Island a couple ot years ago, and spent
his last months there. A year or so ago
he published the story of his busy life,
a book of stirring interest. He leaves a
brother, Dayid Burrows, a resident of
Davenport. He was a life-long mem

deacon for many years. He never sought
for office avoiding public life seeking
his pleasure in liis business and bis

York City instead of as stated above; and
two brothers and a sister survive him

Davenport, and Mrs. Maria Alton, of

Are you disturbed at night and broken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of cutting teeth T If so,
send at once and get a bottle of Mrs.
Winslow's Soothing Syrup for children
teething. Its value is incalculable.
It will relieve the poor little sufferer im
mediately. Depend upon it mothers,
there is no mistake about it. It cures
dysentery, diarrhoea, regulates the stom
ach and bowels, cures wind colic, soft
ens the gums, reduces inflammation, and
gives tone and energy to the whole sys
tem. Mrs. Winslow's Soothing .Syrup
for Children Teething is pleasant to the
taste, and is the prescriptio n of one of
the oldest and best female nurses and phy
sioians in the United States, and is for
sale by all druggists throughout the
world. Price 25 cents per bottle.

For a good spring modiclne we confidently
recommend Hood's Sarsapai-illa. By Its use
the blood la purified, enriched and vitalized,
that tired reeling Is entirely overcome and
the whole body given strength and vigor.
The appetite is restored and sharpened, the
digestive organs are toned, the kidneys and
liver Invigorated. II you have never tried
do so this season. It is a thoroughly honest
and reliable preparation, purely vegetable,
and contains no injurious ingredients what
ever. Thousands who have taken it with
benefit testify to its peculiar curative power.
" I take Hood's Sarsaparilla as a spring
tonic, and I recommend it to all who have
that miserable tired feolinc." C Tarmkleb,
849 Bridge Street, Brooklyn, X. Y.
N. B. If you-dm'tl tot:ikc Hood's Sarsaparilla,
do not be induced to buy any other preparation.

Hood's Sarsaparilla is prepared from Sarsv
parilla, Dandelion, Mandrake, Dock, Juniper
Berries, and other well known vegetable
remedies, by a combination, proportion and
process peculiar to itself, and by which the
full medicinal value of all the Ingredients
used is secured. Hence it possesses superior
and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made It a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, because I know It purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, called
spring fever,' v ill never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never
failing remedy." W. II. Lawrence. Editor
