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, Irops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Ilillions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
fevcrishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Ciistoila relieves
toothing troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates 1 "ie stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural :.leep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mothf i.-'s Friend. ,
Castoria is an excellent medicine for chll
pn. Mothers havo repeatedly told me of its
t-od eflt-ct upon their children.'
Da. G. C. Oboood,
Cnstnria Is the best remedy for children of
kvhich I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
it di.-tar. t when mothers will consider the real
nt"iwit of their children, and use Castoria in
tend of the variousquack nostrums which are
cret roving their loved ones, by forcing opium.
Jjncrpbine. soothing syrup and other hurtful
tents down their throats, thereby sending
lem to premature graves."
Do. J. F. ElKCHtLtl,
Castoria is so mill adapted to children that
I recommend It as superior to any prescription
known to me.
H. A. Archkr, M. IX,
111 So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. 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 anion; cur
medical supplies what is known ma ropul&r
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look witt
favor upon It."

official report. 1
City Council Booms, Rock Island,
Sept. 12. The council met in adjourned
seeBion at 8 p. m., Mayor McConochie
presiding, and all tbe aldermen present
except Guytr. Tbe minutes of ibo last
meeting were reed and approved.
Aid. Bladel moved a reconsideration
of a motion made by Aid. Guyer in
structing tbe clerk, to adyertise for bids
for tbe construction of tbe Tbirteentb
and Fourteenth street sswer. Motion
Aid. Bladel moved that the clerk be
instructed to ask the tender of private
bids from local contractors for said
work . Adopted.
Tbe mayor submitted the following
Gentlemen of the City Council:
We, the undersigned, who in compliance
with tbe resolution requesting tbe coun
cil as a committee of the whole to go to
Clinton to inspect their one course work
and gather such information that may be
beneficial to us In cur future public im
provements, would beg leave to report
That we went to Clinton Thursday
Sept. "8th. During the day spent there
we met the mayor, auditor and most of
the city officials who extended to us every
courtesy and entertained us in royal
style. The mayor devoted the entire day
showing us the sights And giving us all
the information possible down to the
Hiinuit Bt details, taking us in one of his
large and elegant carriages over all their
pavements that are bow under contract as
well as that laid upwards of three years.
All their paving is one course work, and
after close inspectkm we mu6t pronounce
it fully as good -as ours. Most of their
streets are wide, ranging from 80 to 130
feet; tbe paved space between curbs
ranging fr-m30ip to 80 feet wide, the for
mer being one or two Mocks put in as
an experiment at the request of the prop
erty holders, but does not give satisfac
tion being considered too narrow. The
average width where they boulevard
streets is 40 feet.
Comparisons as to tbe cost of their
work and ours cannot be accurately
made on account of the different method
in letting the work. The only way to
arrive at an approximate estimate of the
difference between their one and oar two-
course work is to select one f their
streets where the width, nil ad grade
will compare with one of ours, to
ascertain the difference per front foot it
costs the property owners, muting some
allow&nce in their favor on account of
their uperior svstem of assessments and
lighter court costs; also whether the pay
mt-nts are cash or ' on the installment
plan. But we are of the -opinion from
wh'vt we learned there, the price of ma
teria! and labor being substantially the
same in both cities, the only difference
in tbeir favor would be abeut whit
would cost to furnish and lay the bottom
course of hard burned brick, which :s
about 35 cents per square yard. This
would be reduced a trifle where there
was a cut and increased where there was
a 11. Take for example an 80-fout
street without street cars.' Ordinarily
the paved width would be C2 feet or 26
feet wide for property owners on each
ie to pay for, or one foot less than
thiee yards for each front foot. On this
basis the saving to property owners on
an 80-foot street without street
cars would be about f 1 aer front foot
Streets of less width or having street cars
would be reduced 4 cents per front foot
for every foot less ia width. Their
method of letting contracts differs from
our in this-: We let ycrs at so much
square yard for excavating, grading and
pivincr. no matter what the cut or fill may
be. If any surplus is left after making
the ni:s it is hauled anywhere tbe city
may order, not to exoeed 10 blocks
With them their contracts are let at so much
per square yard for paving and so much
additional for every cubic yard re
moved in cutting and filling. When
tbe dirt is taaen from a cut to make a
fill tbe cut only is paid for unless the
haul exceeds tbe specified limits, which
is 1,200 feet, and one cent a yard for
each additional 100 feet. In this we be
lieve our system is superior to theirs,
having less room for disputes as to th
measurement and length of haul, which
wont J require a check clerk to keep
tally of the loads and distances hauled;
so would the contractor, and both would
necessarily be paid by the property own
er. Ky our system we have a profile
showing the cuts and fills the entire
length of tbe improvement, with a close
estimate of the number of square yards
of paving;, the number of cubic yards of
cuts aca nils, the number of cubic yards
of sand and macadam. Having such in
formation, with the profile, bidders go
ing carefully over the ground would
have no difficulty in making a bid at so
much a square yard for excavating,
gradiug and paving. We - are also of
tbe opinion that our bank sand is equally
as good, if not better, for use under the
prying, -and to be thoroughly washed
into tbe macadam, which should be
broken fine; that broken by a crusher
preferred. We are of the opinion no
benefit is derived from the bottom
course of brick unless it is equally as
good as the top course. Experience has
demonstrated to us the soft, brick disin
tergates with the moisture and leaves
depressions which would not be the case
with a uniform bed of macadam. All of
which is respectfully submitted.
