TUB HOOK ISLAND ARGUS, THUKSDASV AUGUST 28. 1890.
Recently the Argus asked the three
following questions regarding Mr. Gest,
and the Union, io following out its usual
methods, used the same questions with
regard to Mr. Cable. The questions are:
What particular service has he ever
rendered the public?
How has he distinguished himself?
What claims has he for recognition?
To ask these questions in face of the
' record made by its own candidate, the
Union displays the most adamantine
cheek. Mr. Cable has rendered no par
ticular service to the public because he
has never been in the public service. He
has not been a hanger-on about political
conventions and ward politicians for the
purpose of getting an office somehow,
purely for the emoluments that office
may give. He is entering the political
field at the proper age. He is vouDg,
vigorous, intelligent, and in good social
and moral standing. As has been said,
he is not seeking the office because of the
salary attached to it. but to do what be
can to make his mark in the world po
litically. Should be personally succeed
he cannot fail to reflect credit upon the
district that sent him, as well as advance
its interests la all these matters Mr.
Debt has been tried and found wanting.
How has be matinguiRbetl uimaelt? ts
asked. In what way, pray? Had he
been a man of letters or of science this
question might he aiked; had he been
eogaeri 10 some preat war, tbe same
query might be looked for; and, apart
from the learned professions, the only
other field in which any great career
could have left its imprint behind is that
of statesmanship. What he may do in
that direction has yet to be answered, be
cause he is untried. He has, for the first
step in that direction, however, tbe neces
sary qualification aa education.
What claim has he for recognition?
Every claim that pertains to manhood.
Born and reared among the very people
whom be asks to represent, his every act
is known. His life is as an open book
Kind, generous and unostentatious; bis
intellectual culture added to by extensive
travel and observation; what more can
one man asic 01 anotberi is there any
faculty or qualification in which Mr. Cable
is wanting? If not, then why has he not
claims for recognition? His opponents
know all this and acknowledge it to
themselves, but the man of their party
must be upheld at all hazards, even if it
is necessary to blacken tbe character of
somebody to do it.
;oody tooa Fellow.
Tbe Aledo litem d says:
The republican candidates for congress
and the state legislature are men of good
business habits, moral stamina, strict in
tegrity, friends of temperance, and in
every way representative men of tbe ad
vanced civilization of the people of the
district. If elected they will creditably
represent the republicans of the district
on every issue before the people.
Yes. that's the kind of men the repub
lican candidates are. to be sure, including
the one in this district. That he is
thrifty there can be do doubt, as witness
his pursuit of a girl for fees to which he
was in no ways entitled. This may be
reckoned as a business habit. His moral
stamina may be all right in some direc
tions, but certainly not in the instance
just mentioned, and integrity will be
classed in tbe same category. All men
who are not drunkards or insane are
friends of temperance. But if Mr. Gest
is in every way a representative man of
tbe advanced civilization of this district,
then we are not progressing very rap
idly. And if he were elected, would
he creditably represent the republicans
even of this district on every issue before
the people? Certainly he would not. He
has been weighed in tbe balance and
found wanting. Let him retire to the
practice of his profession. He displays
an accumulative spirit in that direction
and one that needs no cultivation. He
would adorn a home better tbm a pub
lic ball. Let tbe borne not lack for the
garniture of his presence.

The arrangements for the excursion to
Peoria under the auspices of the United
Workmen on Monday, Sept. 1, have as
sumed a definite form. A special train
on the Rock Island & Peoria railway has
been chartered which will leave here at
7:30 a. m. and reach Peoria at 10:30 and
over seven hours will be afforded to see
the sights. Tbe train will leave Peoria
at 6 p. m. and get back here about 9:30.
Tickets for the round trip have been
placed at $1.50 and will be on sale from
today at Carse & Go's, shoe store, and
Charles Oswald's grocery, and can also
be had from members of the order. The
sale of these tickets will be limited, so
that each purchaser will be sure of a
seat, the object being to have a pleasant
trip rather than to make as much money
as possible. Aa soon as all the seats in
the cars haye been disposed of. all re
maining tickets will be absolutely with
drawn from sale. In Peoria there will be
a reception by the local workmen, a great
labor parade and demonstration will be
viewed, and the beautiful Sylvan park
and other places of interest about the citv
will be visited. It will be a great day
for all the participants.

Twenty-five cents to one dollar per pound

good market to hunt arte: catch rattlers for
a livelihood, and here ia "aow they do it:
Two men in search for profit in the
snake industry go together. One of them
carries a Ions forked :xle, or cane, and
when a snake is found tt la pole is used to
hold the reptile to the ground, which is
done by pressing the pole down upon the
snake just back of the head. The other
snake hunter c&rriea a s :rong cord, which
is looped over the head of the poisonous
prey and is then used for carrying the rep
tile to market, which, however, is done
without injury to the sm-ke. Other hunt
ers use the pole in the wuy described, but
instead of bringing their captives to
market by means of the string they use a
box which has a sliding lid, and which can
be operated with ease and out of reach of
the cooped up rattler.
hen the snake catchers arrive at the
residence of Mr. Childs the latter, in a care
less like manner takes tht matter in hand,
and if a box of rattlers, for instance, ia
brought to him, he removes the lid of the
box and takes the snake (wild from the
woods) out just as one would reach in for
and take hold of a rabbit. The rattler, as
soon as tbe top of this cag has been taken
off, sets up a continuous i-attle and hisses
fearfully. Mr. Childs, however, pays no
atteution to this little rat ket, but simply
takes the snake to hU farm, weighs it, pays
the catcher and is then ready for a repeti
tion of the act. A good big rattlesuake will
weigh from six to ten pounds, and if fat
will be worth nearly or quite as many dol
The size of the snake faiin is about half
an acre, with a tightly closed pen in its
center, which is the abiding place of the
snakes. Here the ugly n ptiles are kept
and fattened, and when t bey are ready to

oil the reptiles' heads are neatly chopped

said, causes the oil of the snakes to drip

aside to be subsequently sc Id at from 11.50

Injurious Effects of Tea and Coflee.
Experience shows that the effects of tea
and coffee are to impair digestion. Kx
periments have been made thousands of
times not only in chemical laboratories,
hut in homes, with the name result.
These things are of no nutritive value
whatever beyond the little mi.k and sugar
taken with them, and are pieitively per
nicious, making thousands at d thousands
of dyspeptics yearly. Catarrh of the
stomach is produced in mai.y instances
from the use of tea. The constriction of
the blood vessels mentioned it always fol
lowed by relaxation, and then the amount
of secretion poured out is too ifreat, and if
a catarrh of the stomach becomes estab

to cure. Physicians who give attention to
the stomach are beginning to realize that

Torpidity of the Htm-.
If the liver is not doing its f ill duty in
the manufacture of bile the d gest ive ap

torpid liver is always lean, f r he is un

tbe food. One with hard, pli.mp tissues
cannot possibly have a torpid liver, for
pretty good liver is absolutely i ecessary to
the deposit of a large amount of adipose
Another consequence of torp dity of the
liver Is that the food ia not well absorbed
after it is digested. Such persons may eat
enough to be fat, but their food does them
no good beyond maintaining c xiHtence.
