A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT
The Lack, of IHsrlpltne la the raid
Fire Urpirimrai-XeeeUy ot Sme
The fact that three of the firemen of
the Rock Island paid department gave up
their positions simultaneously the other
day and that their places remain un
filled. sustains the theory that there ought
to bemore severe methods of discipli ne
adopted in the govern meet of the de
partment.. Certainly a branch of the pub
lic service bo important as the fire de
partment ought to be proyided with some
assurance that it will not be left in the
lurch when the men comprising it
take it into their heads to throw up
their positions. Taking exception to the
methods of conducting the department
should not be. sufficient excuse for the
firemen to leave the service without a
word of waraing. How to make provi
sion for such emergencies should com
mand the immediate attention of the
chief and of tbe fire and light committee
of the council. Tj withhold a portion of
the firemen's salaries from month to
month has been euggested as one
method. However, it is not the pur
pose of The Argcs to make suggestions
as to the best means of attaining the
ends so eminently essential to the suc
cess of the seryice. That something is
necessary is very apparent. Let those
in authority provide the means.

An Karly Alarm.
An alarm from bcx 33 at 4.39 o'clock
this morning called the department to the
Peoria round house where a R. I. & P.
mail car had taken fire. The department
responded in a few minutes, the fire being
extinguished with the aid of buckets
about the time that the department ar
rived. The fire caught from a stove in
the car in which a big fire had been left,
but was discovered shortly after and
prompt action prevented serious dam

Few people have snflered 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 162 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 1? me suggested that
I take t tr Hood's
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 entiro system began to
tone np. With returning
strength came activity l
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 Hoods Sarsaparilla."
N. B. If you decide to take Hood's Sarsa
parilla do not be induced to buy any other.
