Messrs. James Fitzgerald and J. J.
Wall, of Muacatioe. a-e tbe originators of
& project looking to lhe construction of
a local pagteoger arid freight boat of
modern design to plj tbe Mississippi for
30 miles north and 60 miles south of that
city. The News Tribune says of their
A few days ago they visited Davenport
and Rock Island and were besnily en
couraged by the residents of these cities,
who effertd to take $10,000 stock or
sufficient to pay for a good boat. While
there they met two gentlemen, who real-
zing what a fine or ening there was for a
stiamer between Davenport and Buriing
tnn, were about to agitate the question.
n-cn or inem trlsdly took $1,000 worth
of 6tock in lhe enteri rise and wanted
more but this ws denied them as Messrs.
Wall and Fnzser&Id wished to give Eoms
of our Muscatine people a chance to in-,
vest in it and others living at and be
tween the terminal points of the proposed
route of tbe boat so as to have a goodly
number interested in it.
The design and equipment of the boat
has been settled upon in advance and
correspondence relative to cost of ma
chinery and other necessaries is under
way. The boat will be 140 feet lone
with a beam of 24 feet and will be pro
vided witn two steam boilers, 20 feet
long, with 46 inch shell. The engine
will have cylinders of 12-inch bore and
six feet long, thus furnishing from 50 to
100 per cent more power than is usually
found on steamers of this size. It will
have a full cabin and be allowed to carry
400 people without a barge. It will be
fast enough to make the round trip of 180
miles daily ana will be built by May 1,
either on lb a Rock Island or Dubuque
The projectors of the new enterprise
are sanguine that it will be a rarely profi
table one and allude to the fact that the

ton and Davenport, and which originally

A bid has been introduo d at Washing
ton requiring all baking powders contain
ing alum and ammonia to be so labeled.
This is a step in the right dirrction, and
has been long foreshadowed by the action
of state legislatures, boards of health,
food commissioners, etc , in this matter
The bill affords needed protection to tbe
public, for the evidence as to the inj iri
ous effect 8 of alum and ammonia is very
heavj; but it will nevertheless be fought
bitterly by the manufacturers whom it
effects who are accustomed to a 1 1 tneir
goods as "pure Cream of Tartar," "ab

The bill is something needed. If a
maker oses a drug in his powder, the
name of which he does not want to hhve

King of Medicines
Scrofulous Humor A Cure
" When I was 14 years of age I had a severe
attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered
had to go on crutches. A year later, scrofula,
i:i the form of white swellings, appeared on
various parts of my body, and for 11 years I
was an invalid, being confined to my bed
years. In that time ten or eleven sores ap
peared and broke, causing me great pain and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
Early in 1866 1 went to Chicago to visit a
sister, but was confined to my bed most of tho
time I was there. In July 1 read a book, 'A
Day with a Circus,' in which were statements
of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla. I was so im
pressed with tbe success of this medicine that
I decided to try it. To my great gratification
the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel
better and in a short time I was up and
out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar
saparilla for about a year, when, having nsed
six bottles, I had become so fully released
from the disease that I went to work for the
Flint & Walling Mfg. Co., and since then
BAVK NOT LOST A SINGLE DAT .
on account of sickness. I believe the disease
is expelled from my system, I always feel well,
am in good spirits and have a good appetite.
I am now 27 years of age and can walk as well
as any one, except that one limb is a little
shorter than the other, owing to the loss of
bone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.
To my friends my recovery seems almost
miraculous, and I think Hood's Sarsaparilla
is the king of medicines. William A.
