THE (KOCK TSTj'AIKD AHGU8. Fill DAY, JULY 5, 1889.
DROWNED IN CAMP CREEK.
A l.litle Boya Had rate at table.
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ilughes.of Cable,
have been visited by a sore bereavement,
in which tliey are almost comfortless.
Wednesday evening their little ixy ear
old ton disappeared, and all search for
him by his distracted parents and their
friends proved fruitless, until 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, when the little fel
low's bat was discovered on the banks of
Camp Creek, a small stream which runs
through the town, and later the body
was recovered a mile and a half below
The unfortunate parents Lave general
sympathy In their great affliction.
Contractor Mrhnrll'a Work.
Rock Island contractors do not con
floe their work to this city, county or
state they branch out In all directions,
and to a good extent coyer the western
and middle states.
Alderman Mathiss Schnell has received
word of the acceptance of his bids trom
the following pi nets:
Church tower at Ft. Madison, Iowa,
which will be 220 feet in height, to be made
of brick anil slate. His draughtman,
Mr. Oeo. P. Staiiduhar, is perfecting
plans for a $15.(MH) church at Cbulswortn,
Ills., also fine residence for a leading
citizen of Fairbury, Ills., which will eat
up more than $10,000 in construction.
Among other contracts made by Mr,
Schnell we hear that his workmen are
engaged in remodeling two residences
at Chibanse, Ills., and huildiog a
high tower on a church in the same
place. The contracts and plans for
$ 2(7.000 church at Winchester, Ills., have
been accepted by the awarding commit
tee. The Catholic church at West Lib
erty, Iowa, ask for plans and price for a
house of worship to cost about 18.000.
A Learned t'h) nlrlan.
There are swindles and frauds in every
calling, but the luxuriance with which
they flourish in the medical profession is
evidence of the need which exists for a
little primary education among the masses
in reference to the lays of physiology and
hygiene. The following letter which the
Janesville, (Wis.) Gn:ette says was re
ceived the other day by a physician from
a man whom he knew to be practicing
medicine, illustrates our statement. In
this patient's case science was unavail
ing: Dear Dock: I have a patient whose
physical sines shows that the wind-pipe
has ulcerated off and his lungs has dropeJ
down into bis stomick i have given hym
everything without effect his father is
welthy honorable ami infltiennbal as he is
a member of assembly and cod nose I
dont want to loose hym what shall i do
ans by return male.
I't Freight Trtiia.
The Rock Island and C, B. & g. in
dulged in a race Tuesday with two stock
trains each. Both roads sent two trains
out of Kansas City at the same time.
The first train on the Rock Island left
Eldon at 7:40, an hour after the regular
passenger train, and overtook it .at Fe
donia. making the distance, 64 miles, in
one hour and fifty minutes. The Jour
nal says they stopped at Muscstine just
long enough to take water, and went
whizzing through over twenty miles an
hour. The eastern passenger trains were
held at Montpelier for them, they being
eiven the right of way over all trains.
That is making pretty lively time, with
heavy stock trains.
Arnirted A cat a.
afflicted over"theV.i?HHb rfi eretIv
daughter, Mary, which occurred thfa
morning at fi o'clock. The dread disease
which carried her oft was diphtheria.
She was 5 years and 7 months old and
the joy of the now darkened household.
The funeral will be held from the family
residence, MO Twelfth street, at 8 o'clock
Mr. and Mrs. Naab lost a couple of
little ones from the same disease several
years ago, and death's visitation again
makes their grief almost unbearable.
A w Puzzle.
A new puzzle has been introduced in
the east which is absorbing more atten
tion from those who have seen it than
did the famous thirteen puzzle in its
day. Seven spots are made in a row

Three coppers are placed on e's and

Warner's Safe Cure removes headache,
deafness, nausea and convulsions. Why?
Because these troubles are symptoms of
malaria (uric acid poisoning). "Rey
nold's System of medicine" says of the
symptoms of uraemia: "They generally
begin insidiously, with headache and
vomiting, followed by heaviness, indiffer
ence and somnolence, succeeded by gen
eral convulsions and coma."

No fruit, cake, meat, iastry and vege

They are poison to it. A single cherry or

once in two days by a child of 14 months or

The Little Myth of Childhood.
There is a society somewhere I read about
the other day for the suppression of nursery
literature. I know several people mho think
children should not lie tanght what thev call
rubbish. They say it mibleads them; that
tliey niifl out some time the absurdity of
those stories, and that it weakens their faith
in their parents. 1 don t think that society
will ever make any headway. I wonder if

myths and madu him believe them for
awhile?- What would a mother do if she

truth and It will not be disappointed, thev
say. My friends, the truth is a pretty hard
thing to tell to grown up people. The truth
about life is not pleasant. We have to lie to
make life bearable. The poetry of life is
mainly a lie; but it is the enjoyable element
arter all. Lie to children. Taint the world
as bright and happy as you can. Give them
all the pleasant pictures of it you can. They
will find its hard and practical character
quite soon euough, loug before they have
