THE A1LMIGHTY DOLLAR
fs dominant in everything, but money is not all
that you have to think of when you are ordering
FURNITURE AND CARPETS.
Spend your money blindly and nothing but good
luck will give you your moneys' worth; spend it
intelligently and you will get your almighty dol
lar back again. Does not style count for some
thing, and durability for something more? If
you do not get both of these, what sort of an in
vestment are you making? Whether you or
they'be big or little, you will do justice to your
dollar and justice to your judgment. If you want

' 8. 8. Davit has been showing the Mo
line Dispatch a book that has lately come
into his possession, that is very valuable
a a relic of the past of Rock Island and
Moline. It is the directory of the two
cities compiled in 1855 by W.lliam 8.
The directory is a little one, containing
139 pages, and these are only five inches
by seven in sizi. Of tbeBe only "58 are
used for the names of residents. Ia the
36 years that have passed since the book
was issued many of those who are named
in it have passed from This life, and many
others have made their homes in other
places, but there are many familiar
names on its pages.
In the list of county officers is John M
Gould, county judge, and George W.
Pleasants, school commissioner. Benja
min Harper was the mayor of Rock Isl
and, and the Harper house was not yet
In Moline 8. W. Wheelock and N. C.
Tyrrell were township trustees. . and J.
M. Gould a school director. Of the other
officials none remtin in the city.
In Rock Islacd there was employed in
manufacturing f 408,510, about fifty per
cent more than in Moline, and the pro
ducts amounted to $1,383,075. The
total amount of all kinds of business
transacted in Rock Island amounted to
$8 507 980. while in Moline it was f l.
296,637.' Moline is credited with 1,963
inhabitants and an estimate shows that
Rock Isl&Bd had 4,144 people. The
business statistics of Moline sbow that
$276,975 was invested in manufacturing,
and that manufactured articles to the
value of $899,751 were sold. The manu
factured articles were lumber, plows,
bricks, beds'eads, pails, tubs, chairs,
flour &nd staves. The furniture business
seemed to be good as 35.000 chairs and
11,000 bedsteads were made, and the
start of the Moline agricultural imple
ment industries is shown in the 10,400
plows made by John Deere.

ALCM AND AMMONIA. IX OUR BREAD.
A nuisance that troubled England 50
years ago is now rapidly spreading in this
country, that is putting alum in the bread
we eat. This question is causing a great
deal of discussion atlhepresentmoment.as
it is revealed that alum is being used as a
substitute for cream of tartar in baking
powders. A story is told that a very large
percentage of the baking powders sold on
the market contain either alum or am
monia, and many of them contain both
these pernicious drugs. Much timely
alarm is felt at the wholesale use of
alum in bread, biscuit and pastry. To
young children, growing girls.-persona cf
weakly frame, alum bre-.d eaten motning,
noon and evening is the most harmful. It
is the small quantities taken at every
meal that do the mischief. Alum is cheap,
costing but two or three cents a pound,
while cream of tartar costs 30c, and the
high price of cream of tartar has led cheap
baking powder to be made of alum. If
the reader wants to know something of
the corrosive qualities of alum let him
touch a piece to his tongue then reflect
how it acts on the tender delicate coats
of the stomach.

regard to Ely's Creem Balm, and I do so
entirely without solicitation. I have
used it more or less half a year, and have
found it to be moet admirable. I have
suffered from catarrh of the worst kind
ver since I was a little boy and I never
hoped for cure, but Cream Balm seems to
do even that. M any of my acquaintances
have used it with excellent results. Oscar
