The Interests of Self Contrasted With
Those of the Interests of the People of
the Kleventh Congressional District.
The people of th E eventh congress
atonal district havo an opportunity this
year to contrast the iaien-sis of a self
seeking individual w.th those of the en
tire people of the district, and before de
terming whfcb ttiey will acc-pt by their
ballots, they should atou and ask them,
selves the question, which it is their duty
to do to contribute to the advancement
of a man of purely seiflah design, or to
the furtherance of those idea which ap
peal to the people as a whol;. Col.
Marsh has been a chronic office holder
and office seeker all his life, and has
been in all cases and undt-.r all circum
stances actuated by a single purpose, and
that self. For a numbtr of terms he
held a mortgage on a seat in congress,
but when the district he represented
was changed, and Rock Island became a
part of it, and his record was examined
into, he was relegated to private life, and
there he has'been kept since, aa far at the
will of the people is concerned, although
the republican party has taken care of
him a greater (.art of the 1st 10 years
Meanwhile he has b.en constantly seek
ing for something better than be had, and
like the famous character that Dickens
conceived, coniiiiu-ily asking for more.
He even had the audacity to aspire to the
republican gubernatorial nomination, and
notwithstanding that such a thought was
ridiculed even by the republicans, he was
only driven out of Private Joe's path by
tfc.3 promise thst be should have
the nomination again in the Eleventh
district and he got it. But this will
probably ba the cai ct him. &3 far as the
people are concerned at least. The re
publican party may take him under its
wing again and soothe him with an ap
Mr. Plantz. the democratic candidate
from the Eleventh district, stands, on the
other hand, for those principles which
appeal most closely to the people of the
district, those of taxation. He is an in
telligent, broad-minded vouag man
whom any party might be proud to honor
and to point to as their representative in
the lower houee of congress. And he
will be sent there by a g.od majority.
Henderson and Yore's Enterprise.
Charles Yore arrived ia the city Sat
urday night, and learning of his connec
tion with the distinguished tragedian.
Walker Whiteside, who is under the man
agement of W. F Henderson, formerly
of Rock Island, an Argus reporter visi-ed
him at the Harper. "Weil." replied
Mr. Yore, "as to the success of Mr
Whiteside, he has the field aadislik .lv
to keep possession of it for a great mauy
years. Packed houses were the rule last
season, and cro:1s were turned away
from the op ra house wherever he pliyed
a return engagement. With tlie excep
tion t f Mr. Keene, Mr. Whiteside is the
only tragedian playing a Shakespearian
repertoire before the American public, anil
the papers all over the country vie with
each otherln highest praii-e of his work."

Treasures of a Turkish "Tomb.
No Christian may enter these holy pre
cincts the mosques of Kazan and as one
passes the doors of the mosque one can
only catch a K'impse of long rows of col
umns and arcades. The tombs themselves
are within, each in its sanctuary. These
holy of holies are said to be most croreeous
and beautiful. The ceilings and doors are
richly painted and gilded, the walls and
the tombs are hung with gold embroidered
velvet, while on every side are ranged the
presents brought ly the faithful who visit
and pray there. Two centuries and a half
of offerings are contained within these
sanctuaries.' Among them are candlesticks
of silver and gold, boxes of illuminated
manuscripts, more than a hundred clocks
of all ages and fashions, a quantity of old
china and many other quaint things.
Doubtless among this huge collection are
articles of gold and silver, clocks, china,
etc., which, on account of their ages and
the great care that has always been taken
of them, are almost priceless.
The business part of the sanctuaries is
without doubt the huire 1k:cs with grated
tops, into which the faithful drop their
money. The sums thus collected are di
vided monthly into four parts, one-fourth
being laid aside for the keeping up of the
tombs, and three-fourths go to the she
reefian family. Blackwood's Magazine.
A Precocious Totitli.
I was tolu by Dr. Koad, a relative of Mr.
Buckle, author of "The History of Civili
zation," that this remarkable writer was
entirely self taught. His health as a boy
was so delicate that he was never sent to
school, and was left to learn little or much
as he liked and how be liked. His accu
mulated knowledge was prodigious and
his memory even about trifling things
most remarkable. A friend of mine when
in his company had occasion to refer to the
cultivation of rhubarb, whereupon Buckle
immediately said. "The plant was intro
duced into Europe in ItilO I mean the
common garden rhubarb which grows
wild in the mountains of Syria and Per
sia." He then went oa to say that this
must not be confounded with the official
rhubarb of commerce, adding statistics
about the value of the latter -as an article
of import into Great Britain. Mrs. Crosse

A GREAT OCCASION.
Saturday Night's Democratic Demonstra
tion at Davenport The Torchlight Pro
cession. Davenport endulged in a grand demo
cratic demonstration Saturday night. The
torchlight procession was a brilliant
spectacle, over a mile in length and made
up of handsomely uniformed marching
clubs and cavalry. There were numerous
bands of music, while the streets were
aglow with colored fire and illuminated
buildings. The Stevenson club of Rock
Island 100 strong had the position of
honor in the procession and made a fine
appearance. Tee Leader says of the
The Stevenson club of Rock Island fol
lowed thee images. The members wore silk
hats and white ulsteis and made a fine ap
pearance. Rock Island may justly be
proud of having such an organization as
the Stevenson club.
There were over a thousand men in
line and they kept faithfully in the ranks
till the end of the parade, despite the
length of the m.rch. Especially fine
views were presented to spectators at the
foot of Brady and Har.ison streets, as
the procession was stretched tlong the
slope cf the hill. The mingled and mov
ing raa8 of lif ht seemed like a great
flowing river of fire.
The batteries of Fort Frahm did excel
lent service. The thundering of the can
non awoke all tbcchoei of the tri-cities.
Speeches were made at Claus Grot hall
and the Burtis Opera house by Congress
man Walter I. Hayes, Hon. J. B. Rich
man, of Musca'ine, and others.

regard to the superiority of the Hirsch

pleasure to recommend frof. Hireehberg

MILD BUT PLEASANT.
This is tae general verdict
with all who uj thr? Laxative
Gum Drops. . It is well known
that many diseases, especially
fevers and nervous troubles, be
bin with in1'g-tsUon. When
the stomach and bowels are
clogged with material that
ought to pass off, the absor
bents make an effort to remove
it. The result is that much of
it is taken into the blood and
the whole source of the ife cur
rent is thus poisoned. The Lax
ative Gum Vrovs restore the
proper action to the digestive
organs and thus enable ,he sys
tem to throw off this waste ma
terial. When thss is done the
system soon recovers its normal
tone. The chief benefit of these
gum drops is that thy can be
taken without ny tee mg of
medicine for there is no bad
taste about them, nor dv they
cause griping In fact many
people are restored to he tlth by
their means without ever know
ing that they have been taking
medicine at all Get them ol
