The abandonment of the night tele
graph offlca in Rock Island, which is due
to the morning paper having forfeited its
franchise far associated press dispatches
and dropping its night telegraphic report,
Is a source of great inconvenience to the
public.snd in consequence a detrimejt to
the city, t'tat some methods ought to be
adopted tc remedy. Numerous instances
have with within the past few days come
to the ears of the A rocs where dispatches
of the utmost importance have been sent
fo Rock Idand at night which have not
been rece ved until the following day.
Not the least blame or reflection can be
made upoa the local management of the
Western Union Telegraph company In
this connection. The company itself is
alone at fsult for the discomfiture that is
being infl cted upon the local public.
Since the f ret of the jear a niggardly pol
icy has been pursued toward Rock Island,
and the local office made to run with but
one operatsr, a fact which permits of no
service afer 8 o'clock in the evening.
Rock Island has reached a position of
aize and importance when it is worthy of
better treatment at the hands of the Wej.
tern Union Telegraph company and there
should be provision made for having the
office open at least until midnight, if not
for all night. With one assistant, Man
ager Loom y eould provide this accommo
dation, and it is to be hoped that the
Rock Islanl Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation will give the matter such attens
tion as will lead to the case being so pre
sented to Supt. Tubbs that a desirable
change may be made.

"Help!" "Murder!" "Bloody Murder!"
"Come up here quick I" were the frantic
screams that came from a window of the
Rock Island house between 8 and 8:30
o'clock last night. Several people who
were on the street at the time rushed up
to the floor of the hotel and into the
room from which the sounds came. Officer
Hetter was among the number, and all
erpected to find that some horrible and
ghastly murder had been attempted, but
some surprise was occasioned when the
cause of the disturbance was found alone
in the room and armed with a poker.
The man seemed to be laboring under
great excitement, and being disarmed by
the policeman, he stated that some of the
boarders had threatened his life and so
agitated him with their threats that he
hoisted the window and gave utterance
to the sensational screams.
A closer investigation revealed the fact
that the sufferer was a very well known
and popular, traveling salesman, who has
been laid up at the hotel for some weeks
with delirium tremens; that a local
physician has been in attendance upon
him. and that yesterday he was to all in
tents much improved. The doctor now
believes that through some means he ob
tained a drink yesterday, and that this
brought on the reaction. Officer Mul
queen spent the night with him, and
this morning found him sleeping quietly
and much improved.
The episode of last evening created a
great deal of excitement for the time be
ing, and the report spread over the city
that a murder had been committed at the
Kock Island house.
THE ' LA GRIPPE.

Dr. C. Suder, of Chicago, writes the
following cure for the influenza:
"It surprises me that in no public re
port reference is made to the pure vola
tile eucalyptus as a cure of the influenza,
which has become epidemic in Euroee
and recently in a good many parts of the
United States. This drug was employed
by Prof. Dr. Mostler, director of the med
ical clinic of the university at Greifs-
wald, Prussia. vith the best results in in
fluenza, hay fever, diphtberitis. catarrh
ica) affections of the mucous membrane,
and the deeper lying mucous membrane
of the trachea and bronchi. Prof. Dr.
Scbulz, lecturer on pharmacology at the
university of Bonn, Prussia, speaks like
wise in the highest terms of the virtues
of that drug in the complaints named.
During my stay in Australia, where the
use of pure volatile eucalyptus extract
the volatile oil of the leaves has become
quite familiar, I took particular interest
in its manufacture. The article there
universally in tavor is manufactured at
Sandhurst, Victoria, and exported to all
parts of the globe. Ii must not be con
founded with the common terebinthinous
eucalyptus oil or wood oil."
Mr. J. . Courtright, the genial-hearted
