Castoria is an excollwnt medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told nie of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. G. C. Omood,
Lowell, If ass.
m Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hops the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider tae real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums w kich are
destroying their lored ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. Kinchelab,
" Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it u superior to any prescription
known to me."

' 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 amoag our
medical supplies what is known as reguUr
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

JOSLIN, Oct. 11. The - weather has
been ery favorable for the ripening of
late corn. Now we want some rain to
start the timothy and fall grain that has
been sown and to revive the pastures.
I ne republican rally at Joshn on Sat
urday labt was fairly attended with quite
a sprinkling of ladies. There was not
the enthusiasm, however, nor the number
present that there was two years ago.
There was no singing as of yore. In fact
everything seemed as solemn and as
quiet as if the people had gathered to
gether to listen to a funeral sermon.
If the republicans had increased their
vote in Maine, Arkansas and Vermont,
the niehts would be as light as day with
the bonfires they would be burning.
Dome or the republican speeches we
have to listen to now a-days, remind us
of the man who attempted to play the
national anthem on a fiddle, with but a
single striDg. I pity a lawyer even that
has to plead on both sides of a question
free trade, reciprocity and protection
n the same speech.
The republican platform this year de
clares for the most sweeping tariff reform
ever haard of. In fact, if the republican
platform were literally carried out, it
would be absolute free trade. And in
all friendliness to Charles Searles we
would say, that we cannot see how he
can ignore his party platform by speaking
in defense of and eulogizing the McKia

Republicans are rejoicing over Maine
and Vermont because their vote did not
fall off any more.
On Saturday last in bis address at job-
lin Charles Searle spoke in defense of
both the McKinley bill and free trade
reciprocity. It is amusing to see a man
attempt to wala down botn sides oi tue
street at the same time. Friend Searle
said that "he was opposed lo trusts and
so was the republican party, and that
protection was in no way connected with
trusts from the fact tbat they exisited in
free trade England. That may all be so.
but I look at it differently. As I see it
competition is the fattier, or the real
cause of those combinatioas called
'trusts." The comoetition tbat exists
in England is what I would call natural
competition; that which comes from a
natural increase of the thop keeping and
manufacturing classes; just such free
trade competition as exists in this coun
try among the farmers. If competition
in England becomes so sharp in certain
lines of manufacturing and shop keeping
that they cease to be remunerative, they
must grin and bear it, or combine to
gether for the purpose of fixing prices
The British government will not render
any assistance to one class at the ex
pense of another. The farmers of this
couutry like the English manufacturers, if
their business is overdone, so that they
have to raise wheal for 60 cents per
bushel, and live hogs at three cents per
p.und. they must work out their own
salvation with fear and trembling. Tue
government of this country will not legis
late for their benefit, and it is right here
where the robbery and damnable injus
tice of a rretective tariff comes in. In
this country there is free trade compe
tition, and there is protective com
petition. If any manufacturing
business is made very profitable by plac
ing import duties upon foreign goods
there is an unnecessary rush into that
particular channel, business becomes
overdone, prices unrenmerative. if a com
bination is not Jormed to prevent that
from taking place. Therefor?, as I see it
competition is the real cause of trusts, in
both countries, and competition will ulti
mately ride rough-shod over a protective
tariff if a trust be not formed to prevent
that from taking place. Mr. Searle 's
speech was a very lengthy one. He made
the remark that it wai the tendency of a
protective tariff to reduce prices, and
clinched it by saying tbat "tin, tin, Amer
ican tin was cheaper today than it was
before the McKinley duty was placed
upon it." The question then arises,
wherein has the manufacturer been bene
fitted, and how long must the laboring
man wait for an increase of wages? I am
getting heartily sick of the average cam-
Daign speaker. The great tencency seems
to be to exaggerate, I think it would le
a much better way if one candidate from
each party would address the voters from
the same Diauorm. maaiuK u-unuuie
speeches, as did Stephen A. Douglas and
Abraham Lincoln. Would it not have
been much better if Mr. Alt geld and Mr
Fifer Dad met each other upon the same
nlatform? And would it not have been
much better if some democrat bad been
present to reply to Mr. Searle.

After the Union's comparison of the
two men. The Argus still maintains tbat
Mr. Frey is the superior of Mr. Gamble
in ability, either as grocery merchant or
The successful drama, 777," with
some of the best scenic tffdCU of any
production on the road, is to be present
ed at the Burtis at Davenport Saturday
atd Sunday evenings.
The family cf the late Mrs. Catherine
Cary desire to thus publicly express their
sincere gratitude for the many acts of
kindness shown by thoughtful friends
during their late bereavement.
The Union holds that because Mr. Frey
is a grocer he is not competent to succeed
George W. Gamble as circuit clerk. If
we remembar rightly there are some
records in Mr. Gamble's own office about
the success of his career as a grocer in
Moline, but it has never yet been necea
eary to nake a public record of Mr. Frey's
transactions as a merchant.
The Union figures it out tbat because
George W. Gamble as deputy recorder
under Mr. Bowman, recorded 9003 in
struments, whereas his own deputy, Al
bert Johnson, ha3 enlisted 13.491 in the
four months of bis office so far, it is
complimentary to the republican nominee
for circuit clerk. It would be if Mr John
son was the candidate but he is not.
When Gamble wound up his duties of
deputy recorder to take the position of
circuit clerk be had recorded 9,003 instru
ments, and was several hundred behind
the number on file in the office. Because
his deputy, Mr. Johnson, has recorded
13.491, aad kept up with the file- of the
office, the Union thinks that Mr. Gam
ble's competency is established. Poor,
