AT THE LABOR FAIR.
Mayor McConochie's Speech Satur
The Foimal Opeatax of the Indus
trial Exhibit at the Armory
The Hnsiral Pitiriranr.
Ti-cre was a large attendance at the
Industrial fa r on Siturdiy evening to be
present at the formal opening which had
been postponed from Wednesday eve
ning. The crowd was larger than on any
of the previous evenings, in consequence
of which the book girls and those in
charge of the various booths were kept
busy. Bbor ly after 8 o'clock Mayor
McConochie. City Clerk Koehler and the
members of the city council were escorted
into the h'ill by Eleuer's band and a few
moments later President T.A.Pender,
of the Industrial Home association, ia
troduced the mayor who made the open
ing address. He began by congratulat
ing the members of the association on
their untiring zjal and perseverin ce in
carrying on the work of so laudable an
enterprise which when completed will
add so materially to tbe city's wealth and
prosperity, and stand as a monument to
the irdastry and good taste of the united
labor in this community. He then spoke
of the establishment of tbe home as one
of the most important steps eyer taken
by the workingmen in Rock Island, and
which speaks volumes for their enter
prise and business capacity, after which
he reviewed the condition of working
men in past years and called his hearers'
attention to the advancement made by the
laboring mn in the past 25 years. Mr.
McConochie then spoke of the gradual
forming of the two distinct classes today
in this country and tbe tendency of the
young men of our time to seek for mere
genteel employment, saying that already
in some localities honest toil is consid
ered as degrading, and the utter aversion
of the young man of the period for any
employment in which physical exertion
is required. "In this," said the speaker,
"lie6 our greatest dange. Away over
there in Asia is a great relentless yellow
wave a thousand million strong, tbe most
industrious and economical race in the
wor'.d whose characteristics have not
changed one iota in 4,00) years. There
is no decidenca there. They have been
watching with longing eyes this prosper
ous land for a generation. If we ever
open again the Golden Gale there will
rush across the Pacific ocean a great
tidal wave rolling mountain high that
will engulf this whole continent and ob
literate the last vestige of our christian
civilization. " He then called attention
to the influx of pauperlabor from Europe,
and at the conclusion of bis speech a
programme was carried out by Bleuer's
band and orchestra.
The Davenport quartette was absent
on account of sickness, but will probably
bs heard some night next week.
Catarrh Cant be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to-cure it you haye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of tbe best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

Mr. R. S- McCullough's Story He was
Discouraged Without Hope The
Result of His Treatment With Scott
"I was in a very serious condition when
I visited tbe Institute," said Mr. Robert
S. McCullough. who is employed with the
Davenport Mills Co. "My trouble was
catarrh and bas existed for over four
years. At first my head, nose, ears and
throat became all stopped so I could
hardly Lreatbe or swallow. My appetite
failed, food distressed my stomach and
gave me no s'rength. 1 lost flesh rapidly.
I was not able to sleep half the time, and
was more tired and miserable when I
would get up than before 1 went to bed. I
had a constant discharge of yello w .striDgy,
mucous from my nose and throat. My
throat became sore and voice husky, ard
roaring and buzzing noises in my ears,
with severe pains in my chest and sweats
ing at night. After the second treat
ment I found more benefit than I had by
three previous years doctoring in the city
and I now feel like a new man " Mr. Mc
Cullough has lived in the city for 20
years and worked for the Davenport
Mills company for nine years, and will
g'adly talk with anyone similarly

Some months ago it Svas
announced that Bob Tngersoll
was broken down with some
malady of the throat, and that
he would never be able to speak
in public again. This was the
dictum of one set cf doctors,
but another s-1 who examined
his throat pronounced the
trouble to be a small warty
excrescence which was re
moved, and Bob's throat was
as well as it ever was. About
half of the so called bronchial
troubles come from some trifliDg
causa which, if attended to, can
be cured, but if harshly dealt
with by gargles and the like,
tend to inflame the tissues and
make the trouble chronic. Most
of these maladies can be cured
by using Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Cure. It is un
equaled for its instantaneous
action upon the throat. It
cures the severest cold, and
heals all Jung troubles, asthma,
catarrh and maladies of that
sort. For sale by all druggists.
