Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Xrops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its ipiaranteo is thirty years use by
Millions of Mothers. Castorla destroys Worms and allays
fevcrishness. Castorla prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates tlin food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Childreu's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
Castorla Is an excellent meaicine ror cm i
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
DR. U. C OSGOOD,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I ara acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Dr. J. F. KracHELOE,
" Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. Abchih, M. D.,
Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, W. Y.
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."

Aid. Scbroeder from tbe waterworks
committee submitted tbe following re
port: The waterworks committee would
respectfully make the following report:
The pumping engine ordered b tbe
city last year from tbe Holly Manufactur
ing company, B'jston, Mass., is all set up
completed, and is now supply ine tbe city
with water. The Holly Manufacturing
company guaranteed to furnish and set
up ready for use a pumping engine with
a capacity of pumping 5 O00 000 gallons
of water in 24 hours at a piston speed of
100 feet per mimite. They also guaran -tee
a duty of 100.000,000 foot pounds
tbat is they guarantee to raise 100.000.
000 pounds of water one foot high with
100 pounds of coal.
As to the capacity of pumping 5,000,
000 gallons of water in 24 hours tbe
committee feel satisfied tbat this engine
will do it and more.
She is running about 11 or 12 revolu
tions to a minute, which pumps at the
rate of 8,000,000 gallons of water in 24
hours, and it seems to tbe committee
that she could go double that speed and
more and not exert herself.
As to the 100,000,000 duty, the com
mittee coes not know anything about
tbat, and it would require a test to ascer
tain whether she would come up on that
point or not.
This test would cost the city about
9200 to prepare for tbe same. A sierra
pipe would have to be put in from tbe
boiler to tbe filter pumps, and another
pipe to return the surplus water into tbe
well, and other preparations which tbe
superintendent can explain.
Now, gentlemen, it is for you to say
whether tbe test shall be made, and if so,
to instruct tbe superintendent to make
tbe necessary preparations.
On motion the same was received and
Aid. Corken moved tbat before the
waterworks machinery be accepted, that
a thorough test of the engine be made,
and to notify the manufacturer. Mo
Aid. Scbroeder submitted a communi
cation as to a reduction of wat r rates
on the pastures controlled by Mr. H.
Curtis as agent of tbe Davenport estate.
Laid on the table.

ror sewer work in tbe Seventh ward by
Davis & Ci., and M. Yerbury, and rec
ommended that the bid of Davis & Co..
for 1 8,800, be accepted as the lowest bid,
and the mayor authorised to enter into

the report was received, and recommenda
Aid. Guyer submitted the commis
sioner's report for the improvement of

677 60, and moved its adoption. Adopted
Aid. Cotken moved that the clerk be
instructed to invite City Collector Rob
inson to be present at the next council

lation to certain sewer matters. Motion

diately. Motion adopted.

Moreland Way, a prisoner in the Ke
wanee ail, made a desperate attempt to
escape on Sunday morning. As City
Marshal Swain entered the corridor with
the prisoners' breasfasts Way dealt him
several blows on tbe head with a heavy
iron bar, inflicting wounds which are said
by tbe physician to be of a very serious
nature- Assistance arrived in time to
prevent Way's escape. The affair has
crea'ed intense excitement and should
tbe marshal's wounds prove fatal it is
not improbable that Way will te severe
ly dealt with.
Rev. P. A. Cool, formerly presiding
elder of the Rock Island M. E. district,
and now president of the Wiley univer
sity of Marshall, Tex., gave an interest
ing lecture at tbe First M. E. church last
evening. The university was shown to
be of inadequate capacity to answer the
demands of tbe negro population for
education, the regular accommodations
for 200 students having teen strained to
make room for 425, and Rev. Cool said
he had been obliged to turn away many
a poor tbirster after light, though begged
and implored to admit them. The col
ored people, though densely ignorant,
are anxious to be raised up.
Catarrn Cant be Cured
with local applications, as tbey cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one or tbe best physicians in
this couutry for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of tbe best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on tbe
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
