KICKAPOO INDIAN SAGUA
ROOTS, BARKS AND HERBS,
The Astonishing Cures made by
this remedy are Genuine and Per
manent. They are not like the tem
porary stimulation made by mineral
medicines. Beware of all Mineral
Medicines ! Mercury has made
more Cripples than all the
Wars of the World Combined.
Quinine Never Cures, it only
Stimulates. What is the effect of
Quinine on the Human System ?
The moment you take Quinine
your ears begin to "ring," Dizziness
follows. If its use is continued for
a length of time Your Hair Drops
Out, Your Teeth Become Loosened,
Your Bones Become as Brittle as
Chalk, and finally Insanity Follows.
Is that a safe medicine for you to
take into your system ? No ! Then
take Kickapoo Indian Sagwa for
your Chills and Malaria, the Simple
Product of the Fields and Forest.
The Remedy which Never Fails and
Could Not possibly Contain these
Harmful Mineral Poisons because
their use is Utterly Unknown to
the Indians, who Make this Remedy.

IMPROVING A TOWN.
PROGRESS MADE IN THIS BEST OF
WAYS TO BOOM A PLACE.
For sale in Rock Island by III & Ullmeyer, 3d Av and 20th street
Village Improvement and What It Slffnl
fles In Many of tbe Itematlfal Towns of
New England Tbe Objects and Method .
of an Improvement Society.
At a meeting of the Massachusetts Hor
ticultural society, B. G. North rup, LLt D.,
of Clinton, Conn., read a paper on "Village
Improvement. " Dr. Northrap.spoke as fol
lows: - -
Massachnsetts has long taken a promi
nent part in village improvement. The first
incorporated improvement society was the
Laurel Hill association of Stockbridge,
formed in 1853 by Mary Hopkins, a kins
woman of Dr. Mark Hopkins, who ever
showed a deep Interest in its plans for the
benefit of his native town. It anniversary,
happily observed for 40 years with social
reunions, orations, poems or post prandial
speeches, has proven an attractive and use
ful festival to Stockbridge and Berkshire
county. Its influence has extended widely
over Massachusetts and the country.
The Public Green association, formed by
James Billhouse about 100 years ago in
New Haven, when it was a rural town, is a
good illustration of an improvement society
short lived and yet surviving in an influ
ence steadily increasing and greater now
than ever. Though Mr. Hillhoune was the
benefactor of New Haven and of Yale col
lege in other ways, his richest legacy was
the lessons of civic pride and local patriot
ism which have so long inspired its citizens,
making it a city of beautiful homes, favor
ing liberal appropriat ioi.s and inviting large
gifts for parks and public improvements.
The village improvement movement ini
tiated in WhskucIi n setts has spread across
the continent, so that no state is now show
ing greater interest in it than California.
Even to a stranger visiting that state it
seems to be in the air as a wholesome epi
demic. Proofs of its prevalence meet you
on every hand. Boroagh organizations
spontaneously glido into improvement so
cieties. The practical and economic value
of sanitary and aesthetic betterments there
goes without saying. Climate, soil, salu
brity, irrigation, town pride, ambition to
make one's place a residential town or win
ter resort, combine to intensify this senti
ment in many portions of the Golden State.
The chief object of these societies is to
make the environments of the home and
the village attractive. Grand as are the
palaces of the nobility in Europe, the homes
of Americans in comfort and taste surpass
those of the people of any other land. Of
the -many causes of the recent progress in
this line, the Improvement of societies now
doing their benign work widely over our
country is not the least. Their influence
has by no means been limited to the towns
Or counties where they have been organ
ized, for the discussions they have prompt
ed, the plans and ideas thus advocated by
the press of the country, have benefited and
brightened myriads of isolated homes, even
where no improvement societies have yet
But there still remain desolate dwellings
Innumerable, where flowers, vines or trees,
with a lawn, would make the wilderness
blossom as the rose. Slatternliness in and
around the house repels from their country
homes many youth who might otherwise
be bound in strongest ties to the fireside.
Clearing up and dusting are little matters
in housekeeping, but how soon would the
house become forbidding if these trifles
were neglected! Just so in a village. Let
minor matters be slighted, and the com
fort, content, reputation and property of
the whole community suffers. But, worst
of all, home life suffers, and character de
teriorates. Modern civilization relates to
the homes and social life of the people to
their health, thrift and intellectual and
In earlier nges men were counted in the
aggregate aud valued as they helped to
swell the revenues or retiuues of the kinps.
The government was the unit, and each in
dividual only added one to the roll of sol
diers or serfs. Happily for us the family is
the unit of the state, and government is for
the people as well as by the people. This
gives to the concrete all the characteristics
that make the home Iicautif ul. Thus love
of home is primary patriotism.
Tree planting, however important, is by
no means the leading aim of these improve
ment societies. There are towns in which
the axman is needed as well as the t-:-e
planter. There are streets, purks and home
yards too densely Bhaded. Large trees in
little yards close to the house, especially
the beautiful hemlock or denser Norway
spruce, are unwholesome. There is need of
iterating the old motto. "When the sun
light can't come, the doctor must."
Though far more has been accomplished
in this line t han I ever expected to see when
enlisting in the service 23 years ago; yet,
compared with the public needs aud the
rich opportunities for results now opening
widely all over the land, the work seems
just begun. Instead of one person making
it his vocation, there is room for scores of
workers in this rich field. This c wise has
indeed enlisted the hearty sympathy and
co-operation of many of the ablest and bett
men of the landj anl especially of clergy
men, irrespective of seel, for they early
realized that its social, educational, moral
and religious bearings are even more im
portant than the financial gain. They have
been the foremost advocates of the cardinal
idea that in the home is the lever which is
to lift up humanity.
The aims of these associations vary in
different towns with local needs, and in
clude public health, especially the sanitary
condition in homes aud their surroundings,
roads, roadsides, sidewalks, school and
churchyards, cemeteries parks aud other
public lands, as well as privrte estates, the
grounds around railway stations, lighting
and parking streets, i roviding drinking
troughs, tanks or fountains, organizing
tree town libraries, removing nuisances and
front fences and doing whatever else the ex
igencies of the town may suggest for its
growth and betterment. They often serve
the purpose of boards of trade in cities, and
in all they help form good fellowship and
invite general co-operation. The charm of
country life, so dependent on neighborly
courtesies, is often marred by needless alien
ations and wrangles.
It tends to harmonize a community when
all classes work together for common ob
jects, and diCtrences of rank, sect or pan y
are forgotten. Their neighbors and fellow
townsmen will think more of one another,
more of their townsmen and, best of all,
more of their homes. These associations
foster that public spirit and town pride
which naturally Invite liberal plans- and
gifts. They impressively put to every citi
aen the questions. "What do I owe to my
town-? What is my duty, or rather my priv
ilege, to do for it?" Boston Transcript.

Near to Death.
"A man can come awfully near dying
and not know anything about it," said Ed
win Soule at the Lindell yesterday. "I tell
you, we had a narrow squeak a few nights
ago. We were coming from Chicago to
Kansas City. After supper I went into the
smoking room and sat smoking and chat
ting with several of my fellow passengers.
One by one they all dropped off to bed, and
by 11 o'clock I was all alone. I wasn't
sleepy and sat up smoking. The sleeping
car was full of people, every berth was
taken, and I was in luck to get an upper.
Well, along about 2 o'clock I decided to go
to bed. As I stood up I happened to glance
out of the window and saw a bright flame
coming up from under the car. I called
the Pullman conductor and showed it to
him. He said it was a hot box and that
the packing had taken fire.
"It was a bad one, he said, and the jour
nal was in danger of getting so hot that it
would break. 'If it does,' he said, 'there
will be a whole lot of dead people in this
car, but we'll have to take our chances and
run to the next stopping place.' Finally
we got there, and so hot was that journal
that we had to wait there three hours be
fore we could move a foot. I was the only
passenger on the car that knew of the dan
ger, and I thought then that there ought to
be some sort of a law that would com
pel a conductor to notify sleeping passengers'
of their dangers." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Bad Fire at Bardolpb, Ills.
Bcshxell, Ills., April 3 Just before
noon Saturday the village of Bardolph suf
fered the loss of nearly the whole of the
business portion. The principal sufferers
are Knapp & Randolph, who lost their en
tire stock 3,000 and X. P. Jackson, who
lost $15,000; insurance, $4,000. The post
office is a total loss. The Presbyterian
church was also burned. It was worth
$2,.VO. The total loss will reach $30,000
easily, with insurance at less than a third
of that amount. .
Animals and Alcohol.
Many animals yield to the seduction of
rum drinking, especially elephants, horses,
cows and swine. Poultry, especially tur
key, will absorb the tempting drink till
they tumble over in leaden sleep, lying
around as if dead and utterly ignoring their
accustomed roost. On awakening they
stagger for a few moments and soon recover,
but it is hours before they renew their
cheerful cackling, Austin Statesman.
