C, K. I. A P Newsy Nuggets About the
Different Roads And Their Employes'.
It may perhaps be of interest to rail
roads In general to know on iust what
conditions the recent strike of operators
on the B., C. R. & N. was declared off
by Chief Ramsey. First the company
agreed to fill all vacancies then existing
in the ranks of dispatchers, agents and
operators by the men who struck and that
any not then provided for should have
preference ever others in filling vacan
cies that might thereafter occur until such
time as all who were engaged in the
strike have been returned to service, with
the exception of those who made them
selves particularly objectionable by their
actions during the trouble in interfering
with the company's property or business.
Secondly the officers of the company are
not to hereafter interfere with or dis
criminate against the empioyes on ac
count of membership in the Order of
Railroad Telegraphers, and if they desire
to send a committee to the proper officers
for the purpose of again considering the
question ot a schedule of wages, the
roDer officers of the company will meet
and treat with them uninfluenced by any
of the occurences connected with the re
cent strike. In consideration of the
above assurances the fcirike was declared

J. A. Stewart, traveling passeuger

through the city yesteiday on his way
home from Des Moines where he made
arrangements for the elegant special that
will cenvey Governor Boies and staff to
Chicago on the mcrning of the 18: h
inst. From the reports that are out this
train will be one of the finest ever run on
the Rock It-land road. It will consist of
a baggage car, three higb-backed
coaches, two sleepers and a diner, and
will be veslibuled. The cats are all of
modern design and finish, and the train
will not be covertd by any trappings in
connection with it, which would only
take away the beauty. It will leave Des
Moines at 8 o'clock in the morning and
pass through here between 1 and
o'clock in the afternoon. AnoliT spec
ial train will leave Davenport on the
evening of the same day bearing the Sec
ond battalion of the state militia.

Will be presented this evening and
Sunday, at the Burtis opera house
at Davtnport with the identical
cast 'that it bad during its New
York run. Miss Ramie Austen, the
young, beautiful and accomplished lead
ing lady, has a part in the play that
gives her great scope to display her nat
ural abilities. Well known as she already
is, this role will increase her popularity
and add to ber laurels as a sterling ac
tress. Dare Davidson is so well
known as a character actor, that praise is
ua necessary. The play is a happy com
bination of pathos and humor. The
comedy clement is introduced in such a
natural manner that it is as refreshing as
the sweet summer breezes. The New
York papers voted it one of the strongest
plajs on the road, and this despite the
fact that during the New York run it was
pitted ssainst the bebt companies. That
all who see it will endoree those state
ments is a foregone conclusion.
Thousands who suffer from seme deli
cate infirmity known only to themselves,
which they shrink from disclosing to a
phjsician, have found in Humphreys'
Specifics a cure which has turned the
winter of life into May. They are saved
from undue haste and needless alarm;
saved from the danger of drugs and in'
jurious medicines, and from needless pro
fessional calls an i expense. Humphreys
Specifics are a sour:e of relief in these
and hundreds Of instances
Those using them become
more firm aad vigorous and less liable to
the attacks of disease. They cure, not
because they are strong medicines or vio-
lent poisons, but because they nave
epfjcific relation to disease, and hence
cure it.. Every single specific a special
cure for the direase named. An experi
ence in the use of these specifics in thou
sands of c-ises, extending over a period
of more than 40 years, under almost
ever? variety of subject and circum
stances, has proved them to be abso
lutely pure, and only orodnciive of good.
They cure without drugi?ing, purging or
reducing the system, and are in fact
and deed the sovereign remedies of the

Ths best recommendation
tliat a popular remedy can pre
sent is that it in safe in the
hands of children. When we
consider how many litt'e ones
are injured every year by find
ing the medicine bottle and tak
ing an overdose a remedy that
contains no poison, is alone
entitled to be called a great
household medic'ne. That this
