The Advantages of Making Them Perma
nent While AbooVlt Thirty-Eighth
"If there !' nj one thing through
which the public interests of Rack
Island are . most damaced." ' said
a citizen, "we should gay it was
the lack of good approaches to the
city. Cut off as we are on all sides and
exposed to the rivalry of the city of Mo
line, we should make the firmest protest
against any movement to raise additional
barriers about the city. . The movement
now on foot to barricade the east end of
the city with a permanently established
12 per cent grade, we consider a retro
grade movement of very dangerous con
sequences to the general interests of the
city. In establishing grades the city
council should bo guided only by the de
sire to accomplish the greatest good
for the greatest . . number. They
should not only look to the preseut ' but
to the future when the territory on the
bluffs as far back as Rock river will be
thickly inhabited. The people who
now liye there furnish a good deal - of
trade to the merchants of Rock Island
and Molme. People who will live there
in the future, will furnish fifty-fold more
trade. Those people will be diverted to
the rival city of Moline if better streets
are furnished than are furnished by the
city of Rock Island. When we consider
that every man, woman and child, every
horse that passes over this street my
have to climb a 12 ptr cent (,rade not
only one day but 365 days in a year, and
for mini years, perhaps 100 years, in the
future, we can realize what a It gacy tbe
council would be bequeathing to poster
ity in establishing so burdensome a grade
on Thirth-eighth street. This street iw
the only means of access to a very large
territory. It is the only street in
either Rock Island or Moline that
goes through to Rock river. No other
street goes through within a mile on
either side of it. Elm street is tbe only
other way of getting down from the
eastern b'uff region and that is now ob
structed by electric cars, which render it
unsafe for use by farmers' teams. These
considerations show us how important it
is to preserve a practical grade on this
thoroughfare which can be improved so
as to divert a great portion of trade which
mw reaches Moline.
Considerations, such as the above.
should influence aldermen in tte estab
lishment of permanent grades not a
personal appeal by a few property hold
ers wno nave bunt tneir nouses in im
practicable places. It is time to have it
understood that the building of a house
by a willful man in an impracticable
place again6t the advice of bis neighbors
should not control the establishment of
the graces of our streets. Tbe city coun
cils of the past have not been influenced
by such considerations, and we should be
sorry to see a change made now."

way Cubeb Cougb Cures cells, that his
customers speak of it in tbe highest terms
of praise. One man in particular who
has been troubled with bronchitis for
years, never found any relief until he
used Cubeb Cough Cure. He says it
stopped it at once . He does not hesi
tate to recommend it for all throat and
There is no Danger in it.
The best recommendation
that a popular remedy can pre
sent is that it in safe in the
hands of "children. When we
consider how many litre 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 medicine. That this
is the case with Rei&'s German

following is proof:
