There Is no department of our munici
Pl government bo important to us all as
that of the public health, the preserva
tion of which is the first law of nature,
and all efforts made by the city and its
officers to promote our sanitary welfare,
are of the deepest interest to all. Though
the city has once been thwarted by legal
process in its efforts to insure healthy
food, it i, nevertheless, not disheartened,
and few cities in the west have their san
itary welfare" as well guarded and regu
lated as Rock Island's is today. The re
port of Health Commissioner Eyster sub
mitted to the city council at its Monday
night's session, is an interesting review
of an extremely unfortunate year in re
gard to the existence of disease prevail
ing not only in Kock Island, but all over
the land, and attended generally by the
most serious results. The report treats
all these subjects pertaining to the de
partment thoroughly. It says:
I have the honor to herewith pre
sent the annual report of the depxrt
nient of health for the vear ending
April 30. 1890. The health of the city,
except as it has been affected by two en
demic outbreaks of disease and a wide
spread epidemic of mnuenzii, has been
exceedingly good, and despite the ulter-
ior effects of the outbreaks alluded to
me mortality ior me year will compare
very favorably with that of any city in

spread and fatal that has ever inflicted
itself upon us, resulting, as will been by
tie tables submitted further on, in the
production of 222 cases of the
disease in the course of the year. The
utmost efforts were used by the
department to prevent its spread and
terminate its existence in the way of 10
lation and disinfection, but under the
present conditions and existing city or
dinances, it is very difficult, if not im
posmuie, to tuorou",uiy isolate cses. or
satisfactorily disinfect premises uonn
which the disease exists. A circilar of
warning against the exposure of others to
the disease and advice bs to the ilisinfcc
non 01 premises was issued, and a copy
01 It bag been sent to the householder to
Kether with placarJa for the house im
mediately upon the report of a case
This has been well received and followei
by the families to whom it has been
sent, and it is thought that it has ha
much good influence in curtailing the
spread of tbe disease. AlthMicli it is
recognized mat uiputheria is produced by
aspecinc cause which is highly conta
gious, yet I am convinced that that this
cause is often produced de novo in wells
contaminated by the drainage of impure
matter from privy vault?, cesspools, de
composing vegetable matter, etc. ; it has.
therefore, been my policy to recommend
as far as practicable to discontinue wells
and use tbe river water. Absolute iso
lation of cases, careful disinfection of
premises, the use of pure water, and
strict sanitary c'eanliness of the civ
would I think in time eradicate this dread
disease from our midst. About tbe first
of January the epidemic ofcatarrhal fever
or influenza, popularly known as ' La
Orippe," in the course of its rapid tour of
tne civilized world, mane its appearance
in tbe city, and very quickly affected a
large proportion ot the community, al
though I am pleased to say that the mor
tality rrom It was very small, and its du
ration limited to a very short time,
AT THE COLLEGE.
One other outbreak of disease
has occurred during the year, which,
inougn conunea to the persons
living in a single building. has
quite seriously affected the interests
of one of our public institutions and
caused the death of a number of persons.
About the first of April a number of the
students of Augustana college were at
tacked by typhoid fever, which extending,
has resulted in the development of a
considerable number of cases among the
students who remained here, and a still
further number among those who went to
their homes at a distance. Shortly af
ter the appearance of the disease the col
lege authorities called upon the health
department to investigate its origin and
cause. I gave the matter moat careful
consideration, and after thorough inves
tigation of the food and water used, the
previous history of those affected, and
the sanitary condition of the building, 1
was convinced that the cause of the dis
ease undoubtedly arose from defective
plumbing and sewerage, and the conse
quent presence of sewer gas throughout
tbe affected building. I found tne dis
charge pipes within the building con-
structeu of common drain tile, which
throughout its course was leaky at joints
and broken in numerous places by large
noies, allowing the unobstructed escape
or sewer gas, which had undoubtedly
permeated the entire building, and in my
opinion, constituted tbe cause of the severe
and extensive outbreak of sickness among
the students. Advice as to the nroDer
renovation of the sewerage and care of
the building was given to the collego
authorities which is being carefully car
ried out, and will, I think, remove all
danger of any further trouble and put the
Duuuing in gooa sanitary and healthy
One of the most important elements in
the aanitary care of the city is the prompt
removal of garbage and slops. It needs
no argument to conyince us that it ia not
proper or conducive to good health to
allow organic waste In any form to ac
cumulate euuer in me interior of our
dwellings or in their immediate yicinity.
mature nas given us a sense which is dia
gusted with such practices and it requires
no high degree of refinement to condemn
them from the tribunal of good taste
alone without recourse to hverenic laws
It teems strange then that so many of
our citizens should be culpably neglecU
rul in the proper care of their house waste
for removal by the wagons provided by
the city for that purpose. I am pleased
to say that this carelessness is diminish
ing and it is hoped that a proper policy
will induce the people to keep their house
waste in such shape that it can be nrnmnt.
ly removed and not remain in their yards
:5u aueys to decay and pollute the at
mosouere 01 tne city witn poisonous
miasms inimical to the health of its inhabs
Itanta. In the prosecution of the work
of collecting the garbage last season we
were seriously hampered by the distance
.to be travelled to the city dump boat
which was located at tbe extreme lower
limits of the city, making it almost im
possible for tbe two teams employed to
satisfactorily do tbe work. This diffi
culty has been remedied and we are satis
fled that with the present location of tbe
boat the two wagons used will be fully
equal to the work and will promptly and
rapidly remove the garbage and slops as
they accumulate. It was found neces
sary to make rather extensive repairs to
the garbage boxes both at the beginning t
of last season and preparatory to this. I
have investigated the use of iron tanks to
replace the present wooden boxes, but
nnd that tbey are not considered a sue
cess where tbey have been used as tbe
acids of fermentation in the slops rusts
and corrodes the iron wearing them out m
a very short time.
As I reported to the council last fall,
la. a a
uwas round wnen ue dump boat was
put upon the ways at the close of the
season that extensive repairs were needed
upon it in order to preserve it in proper
condition ror use. 1 was authorized by
vuo council at mat time to nave the re
pairs recommended made; this has been
done, though the expense' for lhe work
has considerably exceeded the estimate of
cost made by the ship builders at that
time. The boat now, however, is in ex
ceedingly good condition and should not
entail any expense for repairs for
several years to come. With the
consent of the mayor, I have located it
for the present between Sixteenth and
Seventeenth streets, a location which will
enable the city lo use it to the most eco
nomical advantage and to the best inter
ests of the purpose for which it is intend
ed. I feel sure that it can be maintained
there in such condition thit it need not
prove unpleasant or injurious to anyone
10 the water obtained from our city
system of waterworks, I am well satisfied
the people of the city may olt:iin Hip
most potable and least dangerous that is
available at the present time. Tbe water
as delivered to consumers is a reasonably
pure water and far superior to that ol
tamed in most cities throughout the
country. The construction of a reservoir
would undoubtedly improve it in tinny
respects. I am firmly convinced that a
large proportion of the disease occurring
in the city arises solely from the use of
water obtained from wells contaminated
by impure matter from privy vaiilts.eess-
pools, bouse drains, stables and other
There is a widespread belief that water
becomes purified by filtration through the
soil. This is true, but only to a limited
extent. I be soil becomes very rapidly
saiuraieu wiin material ot a dangerous
character to have in our drinking water,
and when this occurs with the absence of
tbe oxygenating power of the air and
sun, the water passing through it to sun
ply our wells is constantly carrying wrh
11 impure matter which surely endangers
tne health of those who use it. Such is
undoubtedly the condition of tiio soil
throughout a large part of this city, and
just as certainly is the water of the wells
contaminated by its condition. I there
fore deem it the policy best lo be pursued
mat. me city should extend its water sor
vice to all points as rapidly as possible
and make its use popular with the people
by all p cans within its power.
I would most earnestly recommend t na
me extension ot tbe sewer system
throughout tbe city be juhed h rapidlv
as circumstances will permit. The privy
vault system of disposing of animal cx-
cremcut as it has been allowed in the
past and is pursued at the present time in
mis city, is a nuisance to the senses and
a constant menace to the health of the
people. Some moans should be provided
lor tbe prompt removal from a populous
locality, 01 human excrement and anima!
waste, and in the present light of sanita
ry science, well constructed and properly
regulated sewer systems seem the best
means U accomplish the purpose de
sired. I submit the following

Once he cut her dress from her back as she

who interfered to save her from alms. She
left him, hut returned on his promise of bet

lowed him to a room. Too late she lioticed
that the knobs of the door had been removed
aud their places takeu by heavy staples,
which were fastened with telegraph wires and
padlocks. The terrified woman asked h ir hus

her and, seizing her by the hair, dragged her

That Tired Feeling
That extreme tired feeling which is so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable in the
spring months, is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of flood's Sarsaparilla with any other blood
purifier In the market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit
Tired all the Time
" I had no appetite 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 Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."
