r.rinfrs comfort nnd improvement and
tcti'ls to personal enjoyment when
riu'litl used. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
1,-s expenditure, by more promptly
planting the world's best products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
tlie value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
r.nioiy, Syrup of Figs
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial projerties of n perfect lax
ative: effectually cleansing the system,
ili-iulling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curing constipation.
It has piv,-n satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak
ening them and it is perfectly free from,
everv objectionable substance.
v'rup of Figs is for sale by all drug
gist's in 50e and $1 bottles, but it is man

Strang Irregularities for the State Hoard
M. M. Sturgeon,' member of the
state hoard of equalization from the
Eleventh district, left this morning
for Springfield to attend the recon
vening li the hoard. Mr. Sturgeon
presented The Akgus with a hatch
of printed material, tabulations sta
tistics, etc., before leaving, in an
swer to a query as to there being
anything- new, and from a perusal of
the ligrres it is found that the board
has some strange inconsistencies to
reconcile in this district.
A comparison of the assessment of
differei t items of personal property
oy counties in tnc late Klevcntli con
gressional district, in which Hock
Island 'ounty was included when the
existing assessment was made,
shows some funny as well as inter
esting things. Tor instance:
The average value of watches and
clocks in Hancock county is $1.60;
Henderson. $15.27; MclVmnough,
1.72; Mercer, $2.2.3: Koek Island,
$8.03; Schuyler, $1.44; Warren, $2.91.
While 6.72.") watches and clocks
are reported in Hancoek'eounty, only
1,924 are reported in Koek "island
count, while little Schuyler county
shows" up with 3,(145. but the 1.924
liock Island county watches and
clocks are worth according to the as
sessment twice as much as the
Sehuy.er county ones, and on an
average two-and-a-half times as
much is those in any other county
in the district, except Henderson".
Koek Island county ought to beat the
record if the time-keepers are to
The Matter of Safes.
The average value of tire and
glar proof safes in Koek I:
count is only $1S.7S, while in War
ren thev average ."9.66 and in Mc-
lonn ugh $44. US. Hut then what do
we care for that? We don't need a
good safe so long as we have the
benefit of Chief of Police Sexton's
service on one hand and Fire Chief
Hrahl l's on the other. Besides our
people are known for their honesty
lui in those mailers mat go so
largely toward the education of the
voting gentlemen of our country we
take the lead at a winning iaee; for
instance in the matter of billiard and
pigco-.i hole tables liock Island has
7s agninst 21 the largest number in
anv oilier county, anil thev are good
ones loo. Mark the value $.'?,42i and
iverage $4S.S5 while the highest
average in any other county (Warren)
is oi iv $20. No wonder they need
to have lire and burglar proof safes
down there, of so high a quality
For the average young man to have
to pity pool on a table of the average
value of $2i is an inducement to pro
fanity and crime.
1'arriaces and WaKOim,
We have 43.703 carriages and wag
ons of the average value of $12. 60
agaist 45,366 in Hancock, of the
average vs.lue of ffi. inir supe
rior ttyle is manifest in these figures.
besides down there they show up
with ihH mults and asses against
But then we tar diamonds and
ieweirv! We are credited with
$665 "worth, against $190 worth
dowi in Hancock, $5 worth
in Henderson. $10 in Sehuvler.
$55 i l Mercer and $200 worth in War
ren. Sav Warren, what's the use of
havi lg such high priced safes to keep
onlv $200 worth of diamonds and
jewelry in ?
In manufactured articles we stand
assessed for $20S,210 against $12, 39,
the highest in an)- other county. In
improved town and city lots our as
sessment is $3,371,567, against $963.

A (tueer Maze.
Yesterday afternoon about 3
o'cli ck a still alarm was turned in
from the waterworks, calling the fire
department to the wagon bridge
spai ning the slough. About mid
way across the bridge a blaze had
beei discovered, and the guards at
tcm ted to extinguish it with buck
ets, but could make no impression
on the (lames, and the department
was at last called, and a long line of
host, about 850 feet in all. was
sire x; lied from the corner of Third
avenue and Twenty-fourth, and by
tearing up about 60 feet of the floor
ing the seat of the lire was reached
and quicklv subdued. The origin is
thought to"have been in a cigarette
ore gar stump falling between the
two floors of the bridge. About 5
o'clock Chief Brahm returned to the
bridge to see if all was right and
found that the fire was again break
ing out. and the chief and Guard
Mot tgomery carried 10 buckets of
wat?r, and this lime ended the busi
ness for good, though the guards
kept their eyes on it all night.
The damage w ill not exceed $100,
and it is expected that it will be re
paired at onte.

Sunday Services at the Tlnd all's Grove
Camp Meeting Grounds, Tin
dalles Grove, Aug. 28. There has
not been such a Sabbath on the Milan
camp ground for years. The deep
conviction for sin that had been
fastening itself upon the uncon
verted was preceptibly deepening.
Notwithstanding the dust, which
tilled the air, the grounds were
crowded at an early hour. The tab
ernacle was filled for the early ser
vices, which was that service which
is the child of Methodistism, now
for its winsomeness adopted into so
manyxither churches the lovefeast.
All who have enjoyed such meetings.
know something of the wonderful
spiritual power of this meet
ing, when we tell them that there
were 200 testimonials given. Rev..
J. Q. Adams lead the meeting.
Dr. J. C. Hartzel, of Cincinnati,
preached a powerful sermon, after
which an altar service was held,
when the mourners' bench was
crowded with souls imploring God
to forgive their sins and save them
from destruction. In the afternoon
in the tabernacle there was a chil
dren's meeting, led by Mrs. Van Pat
ten, of Japan, ami Mrs. White, of
Moline. Rev. M. A. Head preached
in the afternoon. His voice reached
the very edge of the crowd and pro
duced a good effect upon them.
Rev. A. D. Traveller preached in the
evening and there were 10 at the al
tar of prayer.
The Young People
The voting people have done grand
work. On Sunday they held ser
vices in a large tent erected for the
purpose of reaching the young. The
work was under the direction of the
F.pworth League. Rev. Davenport,
of Reynolds, lead in a love feast.

service which continued until 6
o'clock. The altar was full. The
dav was one of victory for Christ: about
50 souls have been saved so far.
There was a little difficulty out
side the grounds with one who was
violating the rules of the place. Rut
inside everything was peaceful, and
as this is the oniv arrest made for
six years, the public can see how
well regulated affairs are.

years ami the people regret that the
end is so near. Madge Adams.

For some time the people residing
on Fourth avenue between Eighth

night evidence appeared of a repeti
tion of the customary disturbance
and Ollicer Maucker determined to
put a quietus on the matter then and
there. He sent in a wagon call and
Cant. Kramer and Ollicer Ohlweiler
responded, and forthwith raided the
house, arresting the madam and
James O'Herne for conducting it, and
Harris Cable, Peter Brushler, Henry

The Condition of Mrs. Martin Berkens of
The Moline Republican-Journal
has the following relating to the con
dition of Mrs. Martin Berkens. of
that city, who accuses Col. W. E.
Stevens, of that city, of assault to
commit a heinous offense, and under
which charge he has been bound
over to the circuit court:
At the request of Supervisor Jen
kins, the overseer of the poor called
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin
Berkens this forenoon, and found
them as miserable as poverty and
sickness could make them. " Mrs.
Berkens was in a delicate condition
at the time Mr. Stevens called on
'business" and the flight has
brought on complications of a seri
ous character. She is dangerously
ill, ami blood poisoning is feared.
The family, found without food ex
cept such as the neighbors hail taken
in, were given proper assistance by
the overseer of the poor.
Supervisor Jenkins and M. Y. Mc-
Clendon, who live near, unite in pro
nouncing them a worthy couple.
Thev denounce, as untrue, the state
ment by W. E. Stevens that Mrs.
Berkens is a woman of bad charac
ter, anil some people are wondering
now Mr. Stevens knew this.
Tm Vile to Tell.
As the fads become known
more damnable docs the offense
pear. Ihat a man of . K. Stevens
intellect and standing in the commu
nity should commit such a vile act as
he is charged with, the woman a
sailed heing a poor Belgian, seems
incomprehensible. The details of
the assault, as told our reporter, are
too vile for publication.
