Tac mail carriers are coming out in
bright uniforms and which ic neatcess are
a credit to Postmaster Wells and bis
superior, the government tailor. When
it comes to keeping up appearances it is
not n bad idea to have one with some
idea of the fitness of clothing at the head
of departments wherein the men are sup
pose 1 to be uniformed, and the Rock Isl
and Sre department will doubtless even
tually illustrate this fact, a good begin
ning having already been made, but oh

tailor might be placed for a few days at

At last some definite information has

died at the Davjnport house of detention
lost Friday morning. Her mme, it
seems, i3 not Belle Williams, but Elizi-
bath Cooper, and her husband resides in
Clintan. The woman left Ler husband
sometime ago, however, end has since
lived with the man Williams in Davens
port and in Iowa City. Several parties
have been found who have identified the
body as that of Mr. Cooper or Williams
as Shu has c: osen to call herself recently.
This does not seem to have simplified the
matter of the disposition of the body.

Daver port last evening. Miss Jennie
Goldthwaite, well known in Rck Isl
and, being a relative of the Bowlby fam
ily, is one of the bright particular stars
of the company.
As the title indicates, "The Midnight
Alarm" deals with the exciting incidents
in the life of a fireman in the metropolis,
and is a cleverly constructed modern
school drama, capable of rivalry with the
strong! st on the roai. Cunningly con
trived complications keep alive the inter
est and lead to conjecture as te how the
author is to bring the tangled events in
harmory with the desires of the audience.
All this is happily brought abou", how
ever, aad the curtain descends on a
scene of happiness pure and complete.
Tae conpany carries expensive mechan
ical efLcts and very handsome scenery.
Noticeable among these are the East
river v barf set, the Brooklyn bridge;
scene, Uncle Gideon's farm, the railroad
draw-bridge, interior and exterior f en-cine-ho
ise No. 6. New York City. Con- j
spicuous features are the living statue
clock, fl ght of the lightning express, the
midnigtt alarm, with the rush of a gen
uine fire engine and horses to the tire. A
powerful and competent cast will inter
pret the piece. The play appears at the
Burtis opera house Friday, Feb. 19.

In bis speech befi.re the committee on
rivers and harbors of the national bouse
last w ek, Maj. M. J. Murphy, of St.
Louie, presenting for the St. Louis board
of trade the claims and needs of the Mis
sissippi river for improvement from 8t.
Louis to the Gulf, was frank to say:
'T have urged upon those here, who
I know will be in tbe national convention,
the necessity for incorporating a plank in
the platforms of both parlies recognizing
the necessity for the improvement of the
Mifcs'ssippi river as a separate and inde
pendent proposition. The congressmen
id the west, mark my words, will
be elected within four years on
this issue, and no one wiil 01113 to tbe
fifty -third congress unless he is pledged to
the improve-nent of this great waterway
ard i's tributaries. Our memorial, which
w 11 hi before congress in a few days, is
no netmg effort s others bave been
hsrretofo.-e It will be followed by all the
work that an energetic organization can
do for years to come, and I hope a demo
cratic president in 1891 will sign a bill
p&'rstdby a practically unanimous vote
of congress entitled, "A hill Tor tbe ap
propriation of $100,000 000 for the com
pletion of the permanent improvement of
the Mississippi river from Si,. Paul to tie
"There are now 176 members of con
gress from tbe states fronting on and
washed by the waters of the Mississippi
river and its main tributaries, the Ohio,
the Missouri and others. The districts
directy on the Mississippi river alone are
33, as follows: Minnesota, 3; Illinois, 6;
Tennesseo, 2; Mississippi, 4; Wisconsir,
3; Missouri, 6; Arkansas, 1; Louisiana,
5; Iowa. 4; Kentucky, I. Every one of
these members realize that the im
provement of the main waterways means
eventually and undoubtedly the improve

If life were cue dance tn a torch lit hall.
If life were sweet music and that were all.
It wonld be as gay ae a summer day.
But ransic ceases and lights die out.
And what of the darkness of night without?
If life were bat lover and lady gay.
No armor to wear and no riding away.
It wonld be as bright as a wedding night.
But Morning bugles and Honor rails
And, oh! the silence of widowed hallsl

F.nVct on the Liver of Cycling. ,.
The aet of pedaling the cycle instantly
quickens the circulation in the feet and
legs, and In the course of a quarter or half
an hour sends a perfect torrent of blood
through the veins of the lejrs and tbe pel
vis into the portal vein, which spreads it
self out in the liver from the lower side.
In other words, the effect of cycling upon
the liver is the same as that of flooding a
still and stagnant lake with innumerable
mountain streams after a heavy rainfall.
The whole of the water in the lake is vio
lently moved, and the outflow at its lower
extremity is increased tenfold.
It is precisely this fl xxling clTect which
is produced upon the liver by the rushing
currents of blood from the legs as the re
sults of their energetic activity in pedaling
the bicycle or tricycle. The stagnant lake
in the org;in is moved in every part, all its
minutest ramifying vessels are washed
out, its bile secreting cells arc stimulated
by fresh blood, and the work which a liver
pill usually takes ten to twelve hours to
perform is performed in less than one honr,
and with much more thoroughness and
Not that the immediate effect of cycling
is to rouse the bowels into activity, but the
constipation and liver torpidity are gradu
ally overcome by an increase of normal
physiological activity, and the cure re
mains permanent so long as the exercise is
persevered with. Hospital.
IS Pounds or Blood
Is about the quantity nature allows to an
adult person It is of the utmost im
portance that the blood should be kept ss
pure as passible. By its remarkable
cures of scrofula, salt rheum, etc , Haod's
Sarsaparill has proven its claim to be the
best blood purifier.

Few people have suffered more severely
from dyspepsia than Mr. E. A. McMahon, a
well known grocer of Staunton, Va. He says
" Before 1878 I was in excellent health, weigh
ing over 200 pounds. In that year an ailment
developed Into acute dyspepsia, and soon I
was reduced to 102 pounds, suffering burning
sensations In the stomach,
palpitation of the heart,
nausea, and indigestion.
could not sleep, lost all
heart in my work, had fits of melancholia, and
for days at a time I would have, welcomed
death. I became morose, sullen and irritable,
and for eight years life was a burden. 1 tried
many physicians and many remedies. One day
a workman employed by me suggested that
I take A mm Hood's
wife of wai, dyspep
sia. I did so, and before taking the whole of
a bottle I began to feel like a new man. The
terrible pains to which I had been subjected,
ceased, the palpitation of the heart subsided,
my stomach became easier, nausea disap
peared, and my entire system Degan to
tone np. With returning
strength came activity of
mind and body. Before
the fifth bottle was taken
I had regained my former weight and natural
condition. I am today well and I ascribe it
to taking Hood's Sarsaparilla."
