"Castoria Is an excellent medtclno for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good efffct upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osgood,
Castoria Is the bent remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day to not
for distant when mothers willconsiilor the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrum which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
amenta down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Pa. J. F. Kinchbxoe,
" Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."

" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

IT'S AN UGLY FIGHT.
The Contest Between atargeon aad
Searle for (he Kepublteaa Mtate'a
One of the most animated and inter
esting preliminary skirmishes to a politi
cal convention is the internecine warfare
now raging in the republican party of
Rock Island county over the republican
state's attorney nomination. M. M.
Sturgeon, the present incumbent, and C.
J. Searle. who aspires to the nomination,
are the opposing candidates, ' and the
fight that is being waged by their re
spective friends is fierce and determined .
From the present stage of the game it is
impossible to reach a forecast of the sit
uation, both candidates being positive of
having the advantage. Searle claims to
have the support of the masses of the
party.as the ''candidate of clean politics,"
while other republicans aver that in the
call for the county convention Sturgeon
has been made the victim ot a put up job,
that the number of delegates has been so
increased as to make the con
vention the largest ever held in Rock Isl
and county, the idea being that Sturgeon
has a faculty of controlling slated dele
gations, and that this time the old
timers will be out numbered by the masses.
In a word, the scheme is to seat more
delegates than Sturgeon can control.
The situation is one that calls for
strategic politics, and both 'candidates are
taxing their wits to beat the other out.
The contest waxes warmer each day, and
the mercury in the political thermometer
will be boiling long before the day of
reckoning, August 15.
Joslin, Aug. 2 The Joslin creamery
wa in operation on Sunday last.
There have been quite a number of
hones sacrificed with the intense beat of
last week. Farmers should be careful.
That was a very timely rain we had on
Sunday last. To those farmers who have

Revenue necessary to an economical
administration of government should be
raised by levying a burden on what the
people possess instead of what we con
sume. Chicago makes no pretense of closing
the saloons on Sunday, and this gives
point to the argument that if the World's
fair is closed on Sunday, the Chicago sa
loons will be the principle gainers.
There was a lady passenger with a
baby in her arms at the Joslin depot this
morning. She had jast obtained her
ticket for Rock Island when the train
came in. The car wheels had scarcely
ceased to turn when the conductor
waved to go, and of course the lady with
the baby, got left. She made frantic
efforts to catch hold of the car, and it is
a wonder she was not jerked under the

It is said that Mr. Cook has made Jr.

The tariff robs the poor to enrich the
already over rich. It takes from the
weak to give to the strong. It is one of
the most potent influences in dividing the
country into the very rich and the help
lessly poor. It keeps children from
school and mothers from church. It is a
moral question and every man and woman
who loves Ood and humanity, has a
moral duty to petform, of driving this
iniquity out,of our country.
During the war the tariff stood 34 per
cent and an income tax wes imposed
upon corporations, banks and rich men.
Checks, deeds, mortgages and contracts
were stamped. But since the war the
tariff has been gradually pushed up until
now it stands at 47 or 48 per cent, while
the income tax haB been repealed and the
wealthy corporations and great banking
institutions and the millions of the rich
particularly, escape the burden of sus
taining the government.
Since the last presidential election the
method of voting has been changed in
more than two-thirds of the states.
Thirty-five states have adopted the Aus
tralian ballot system in various forms.
What effect this will have upon the next
ceneral election it is difficult to predict.
I suppose that such politicians as Clark
son, Quay and Dudley will plan some
scheme to defeat the in'entions of the
law. In New York they paid voters to
stay away from the polls, thus accom
plishing one-half the result of former
To talk about liberty of contract for
the workingman, and then place him
where the only liberty he has is to accept
the terms offered or starve, is an absurdi
ty. And that is just what faces the
average workingman. Monopoly has
obtained control of all national oppor
tunities; the fields, the forests and the
mines. The money of the country is in
the control of both home and foreign
combinations and syndicates. The aver
age man has little opportunity to make a
living for himself and family and lay by
anything for old age.
