This afternoon occurred the juvenile

A great many inquires have been made
by those who evidently have not kept
themselves posted on tbe relief work in
this country in recent years, as to what is
the Red Cross society, and who is Clara
Barton to whom the Rock Island funds
The presence of Clara Barton and her
assistants at Johnstown is felt every
where in tbe flooded district. Tbey
walk noiselessly about in tbe church,
used as a hospital, easing the sufferings
of tbe wounded. Their advent at
Johnstown was a benediction. Tbey
are ministering angels of christian love
Clara Barton Is a native of Maine. She
was a teacher in early life and founder
of some free schools in New Jersey. In
1854 she went to Washington to be a
clerk in tbe government service. She
resigned at the outbreak of the war, and
went into hospital service. Clara Bar
ton appeared in Strasburg the morning
after its capitulation to the Germans
with a scarlet cross wrought
in her sleeve above the elbow.
Her humane work was carried
on in Paris after tbe fall of the commune.
When tbe Mississippi overflowed its
banks in 1884, Clara Barton appeared
laden with relief. Her work in America,
additional to what has been mentioned,
has relieved the sufferers of the Ohio
floods, Michigan fires, Charleston earth
quake, southern, yellow fever scourge,
Texas drought, Mount Vernon tornado,
and now the awful calamity at Johns
town. Clara Barton is president of the Amer
ican Red Cross. The Red Cross is a con
federation of relief societies in different
countries, acting under the Geneva con
vention In Geneva is held once a year a
meeting of tbe Society of Utility, which
is the international committee of the Red
Cross. Tbe motto of tbe American
branch of tbe organization Js: "Relief In

The ft'reeport Rapes.
The Freeport races next week promise
to be the most interesting and successful
ever held at Taylor's park. The liberal
purses offered and , the fairness with
which the association has always treated
tbe horsemen, together with the excel
lence of tbe track, makes Freeport the
most popular point in the northwestern
circuit. Secretary W. N. Cronkrite re
ports nearly one hundred entries, the
largest number ever recorded and which
must be quite gratifying to that gentle
man, as this is the first meeting in which
be has acted in tbe capacity of secretary.
Mr. J. K. P. Fleming is still president of
the association, and is one of the most
popular horsemen in Illinois. Among
those who will sUri horses next week is
M. E. Mc Henry, formerly of Rock Island
who will - drive Newmont in the 2:40
class; Illinois Egbert in the 2:24; Billy
Mack in the 2:27; Flossie G. in tbe 2:18;
and Ollie Drake in the 2.33 class.
Yesterday's game between tbe Daven
ports and Peorias ended in a very pecu
liar manner. Prior to the fifth inning,
Doyle, tbe captain of the Peorias, had
been so offensive and insulting in his lan
guage toward Umpire Einzie that the
latter had imposed two fines. This hav
ing no effect, the umpire appealed to
Manager Flynn to call Doyle off tbe field.
Flynn refused to comply, and Kinzie per
sonally ordered Doyle from the grounds.
He refused to go and at the end of the
fifth inning Kinzie declared the game 9
to 0 in favor of Davenport, the score then
standing 5 to 5.
James Sbeehan, representing Arm
strong Bros., of Canton, presented the
Harper house base ball nine with a box
of choice cigars yesterday, in token of
their victory the day before.

When the liver is indolent, as it must
necessarily be when it fails to secrete tbe
bile in sufficient quantities to meet the
requirements of digestion and evacuation,
it should be set at work with Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters. The healthful stimu
lus to activity imparted by this incom
parable alterative, speedily eviuces itself
in a departure of tbe uncomfortable sen
sations in the right side; tbe nausea, fur
upon the tongue, indigestion, and sick
headache consequent upon inactivity of
tbe liver and the diversion of the bile
from its proper channel. Irregularity of
tbe bowels is always and painlessly re
formed by the corrective indicated, which
is infinitely to be preferred, both because
it is safe and more efficacious, to blue
pills, calomel and drenching purgatives
of every class. It cures and prevents
fever and ague and rheumatism.
