Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil

good effect upon their children."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which T am 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."

' Our physicians in the children's depart

and although we only have amoag ear
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."

Arrangements Made for. a Per
ANOTHER VEST LARGE MEETING.
The Rooms of the New Club Crowded With
Enthusiastic Young; Democrats Again
Last Night Committee Appointed to
Present Tlans of Permanent Organiza
tion A Resolution in Regard to the In.
dependent Democratic Candidate for
Congress To Turn Out Friday Evening.
The originators and promoters of the
Young Men's Stevenson club no doubt
bad little idea that the organization
which is becoming noted all over th s
section as one of the strongest political
organizations in western Illinois, would
grow to The proportions that it has.
When the organizing of such a club was
first talked of many were found who
were averse to joining an organization
and a particular aversion was manifested
toward anj thing in the way of a march
ing club. At the first meeting of the
club, when about 40 had signed the roll,
it was thought that a surprising good start
had been made and not many additions
were figured upon. New members be
gan to flock in, however, and as there
was such harmony and enthusiasm
among all the members, it served to in
terest others, with the result that about
100 have been added to the original 40,
al! of whom are voters and have volun
tarily become mi mberi. Not alone has
the club become known locally, but its
fame has epread to neighboring cities
and has been an incentive to other simi
lar crgan'zatien being formed.
The influence that it is exerting
among the joung men of the city is seen
on every hand, and will redound to the
benefit of democracy's principles in the
comins: election. The regular weekly
meeting of the club occurred at its rooms
last evening, a larger attendance be
ing present, which Is indicative that its
popularity is still on the gain, Consid'
erable work of importance to the club
wss accomplished. In the absence of
President Huesicg, Vice-President Bland-
ing filled the cb&ir, and tbe reports from
different committees made a gratifying
showing. A resolution wes passed to
tbe t fleet that inasmuch as there was ai
ready a regular democratic ticket in tbe
field before Mr. Vinton came out as an
independent democrat, that it be the
sense of the meeting thai every member
of the organization do all in his power to
further the election of the regular ticket.
As the club seems to be so popolar it
was thought by everyone present that it
would be a good plan to organize perma
nently and accordingly a committee com
posed of J. F. Dindinger, H. L. Wceelan
A. D. Huesing, John McDarrah and
William Hoeft was appointed to report
a plan at the next meeting.
It was also determined that the club
should turn out on Friday night and to
extend an invitation to all the clubs of
the surrounding towns to be presenton that
occasion should the committees in charge
of meeting so desire. A c tmmilfee com
posed of A. D. IIucB'.ng, L. C. Blanding
and H. L. Wheelan was alsu appointed
to look after the arrangements for that
evening. This committee is to report on
Wednesday night, to which time the club
adjourned when it will be drilled by
Captain Leary any his aids at Turner hall,
The rooms of the club which are open all
the time are well stocked with campaign
literature and irj used a great deal by
WORTH SHOULD COUNT.
In the Selection of County Oilicers the In
terests of the People, Not tbe Personal
Desires of the Candidates. Should be Considered.
In the selection of public officers the
individual worth and capability of the
candidate tc fill the duties of the office
for which be striven, should be taken
iato consideration first. Personal or
party considerations should not be the
guiding motive of the voter. In this
view of the matter the democrats as
every wherein the country present unusual
advantages in Rock Island county at tiiis
That Feter Jfrey, the democratic can
didate for circuit clerk, pos
sesses elements or strength oyer
William Gamble. the republican
nominee, none will deny. There
is no disposition to personally ats
tack Mrr Gamble, but bis conduct
of the important office of clerk of courts
has shown him to be incompetent for the
discharge of the duties. Not only has
he failed to keep the record of the
routine proceedings of bin tffice up Ho
date, but the county is at this time at the
expense of providing additional help to
get the office records in proper sape.
Peter Frey on the other hand - has dem
onstrated his capabilities, he having as
township collector made tbe best record
of any collector the township ever had tip
to bis time. As between the two men
there is no kind of comparison Mr. Frey
is superior in all respects, and his elec
tion is assured on that basis if nothing
The same is true as between the re
spective candidates for state's attorney,
M.J. McEniry a man of experience at
tbe bar, all . bis life a Rock
Island boy, stands head and
shoulders, above his republican oppon
ent, who has been in the county but
three years, who came here deliberately
for the purpose of seeking the office of
state's attorney. He has succeeded in
capturing the republican nomination, but
that will end his aspirations. Mr. Mc
Eniry is gaining votes and confidence
daily, and election day Vill witness his
triumph by- a good majority.
Winslow Howard, the democratic nom
inee for coroner, possesses elements of
strength that his opponent does not. He
is every way qualified for making a good
officer and will be elected beyohd a doubt.

Headache and' Dyspepsia-
William E. Rockwell, No. 512 Wesi
Fifty-seventh street, New York, says:
"I have been a martyr to bilious hesd-
ache and dyspepsia. Any indiscretion m
diet, overfatigue or cold, brings on a fit
of indigestion, followed by a headache
lasting two or three days at a time. I
think I must have tried over 20 different
remedies, which were recommended as
certain cures by loving friends, but it
was no use. At last I thought I would
take a simDle course of purgation with
Brandreth's Pills. For the first week I
took two pills every night, then one pill
for 80 nights; in that time I gained three
pounds in weight, and never have had an
ache or pain since.
Disease in one part of tbe body will
eventually fill the whole body with dis
ease. .Every Tear or two some part of
the system grows weak and begins to de
cay, buch part should be removed at
once, and new matter be allowed to take
its place. There's no need of cutting it
out with a surgeons scalpel. Purge
away the old, diseased and wornout parts
with Brandreth s Pals.
