diseases, frequently causing death. It* strange

able to discover a remedy that to safe in Its ac
tion and sore in lu cure. Remedies bare her
tofore been (Uncovered, bat so dangerous an*
thpy. that unless carefully administered. u« r
are more deadly than the disease. It Is because
ATHLO
n PHOROS
Is absolutely harmless and certain to cure, that
It bas achieved Its wonderful success.
Mr. M. M. Tilton, Chicago, 111., writes:
” Hare witnessed marvelous effects pro
dneed by iTßLoraouw. i artirulariy in one
severe ease of Rhrumtiwin of U years stand,
iug. where feet and bands were much dis

entirely relieved from pain. Have used it in
my ova family with entire success."
Geo A. Crandale. 2d and Walnut Sts,
Dea Moines, la , writes:
“ A th Lopßoaos has astonished me with its
wonderful i<ower I have ur«l two bottles for

Tather, Mother, and Three Butera Dead.
Mr. David Clavpool, forit»erly .Sergeant
at-Arms of the New Jersey Senate, and now
N«»tary Public at Cedarville, Cumberland
Co., N. J., makes the following startling
statement: “My father, mother, and three
filters all died with consumption, and my
longs were so weak I raised blood. Nobody
thought I could live. My work (ship
smithing iwas very straining on me with my
weak constitution, and 1 was rapidly going
to the grave. W hile in this condition I
commenced using Miahlev’s Herb Bitters,
and it saved mj life. Because it was so
difficult to get it in this little place, and I
had improved so much, I stopped taking it
for a time, and the result is that I have
commenced going rapidly down hill again.
Somehow, Mishlers Herb Bitters gives
appetite and strengthens and builds me up
as nothing else does, and I must have a
dozen bottles at once. Use this commu
nication as you please, and if any one wants
to be convince*! of its truth, let them write
me and I will make affidavit to it, for 1
owe my life to Mulder's Herb Bitters.”
. The serret of the almost invariable relief
and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar
rhoea, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and
liver complaints, when MishleFs Herb
Bitters is used, is that it contains simple,
harmless, and yet powerful ingredients,
that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver,
and through them strengthens and invigor
ates the whole system. Purely vegetable
in itacompoeition ; prepared by a regular
physician ; a standard medicinal prepara
tion ; endorsed by physicians and drug
girts. These are four strong points in favor
of Mishler’s Herb Bitters. Mishlers Herb
Bitters is sold by all druggists. Price! 1.00
per large bottle. 6 bottles for $5.00.

HOMER H. SEERLEY,
Superintendent of OskalooM City Schools.
EDITOR.
A Ward la »*asam
Mr. Editor: For some time past
there has been a query in the mind of
the writer, “Where are the fruits of our
teachers T Seeing the article from the
pen of Mr. Whitehill Anally decided tbe
fate of this—either that it would go
before your readers or into the waste
basket.
The writer has no fault to find, and
not being a teacher, no suggestions to
offer; but that there is room for both—
great need for both, seems the most
obvious.
Statistics go to prove the rapid
strides that education is making, and
places lowa in th? very front rank of
freedom from illiteracy; but if this is
the fact, then one of two things becomes
an established certainty.
In order lo verify and make more ap
parent this statement, the writer pre
sents a comparison of two written arti
cles, one written thirty years ago by
only an ordinarily educated woman—a
mother of a large family and one who
in that remote period was scarcely ex
pected to jKissess any education; the
other by a sub-director, in Union town
ship, written in the year 1885.
The first is a letter to relatives,
naturally not studied or conventional,
the second is a public document, of a
character necessary to require ordinary
care in use of spelling, punctuation and
capitals.
It is impossible to make a compre
hensive comparison without copying
both, but referring to the latter in par
ticular, “shall” is spelled “shal,” “in
jury" is spelled with a “g,” and “schol
ars” with a double “Ithen fully one
half the paragraphs are begun with a
small letter, while the verb “be” is al
most universally written “Be,” through
out the entire document, and school
written “SChool.”
This “schollar (?)” is one of the Board
of Directors of Union township, Ma
haska county, Iowa; and on the same
Board is another who, a few weeks
since, in calculating the amount of
lumber contained in eight pieces, 2
inches, and 4 feet and 11 inches long,
obtained as a result only the mere trifle
of 70 feet. Accompanying these, and
in the same township, is a teacher, and
it is believed also a correspondent to
both the Herald and Globe, who owns
taxable property to the amount of
84,000. This gentleman, (teacher) in
calculating his court house tax was
quite loud in declaring that “I don’t
suppose my court house tax will be
less than 890." Any ten year school
boy ought to figure it out no less ac
curately.
Now for the proposition, “one of two
things,” etc. If these three persons are
up to the standard, then our teachers
have not made equal advance with
those of other portions of tht State; if
they are below the average then our
people are and have been employing the
illiterate to officiate in matters they
arc totally unfitted for and incapable
of overseeing.
These are facts— I “Where are the
fruits of our teachers?”
It matters but little whether the
teacher or the director be next in au
thority to the county superintendent—
both are included In the statements
herein —but it docs seem that people
ought to either be* taught better, or
knowing, to awaken to a sense of their
obligations and duties.
Think of a carpenter trying to run
his plane backwards; the machinist his
machine or the engineer his train back
wards; and yet the use of such spelling,
punctuation, capitals, and such calcula
tions is more conducive of “injury”
than any or all these other absurd
undertakings.

Address or President Huntsman,
Before the State Medical
Society.
Ladies and Gentlemen : As the
President of the lowa State Medical
Society I welcome you at this our
annual gathering and am glad to be
lieve that to all our members, with but
a single exception, so far as my knowl
edge extends, this has been a year of
peace, prosperity and success.
We meet to-day in this citv, with her
beautiful streets and avenues; a city,
rich in her social and commercial ad
vantages, her elegant homes and
cultured citizens, situated on the banks
of a beautiful river where only the red
man dwelt but a few decades since.
How blessed, in contrast, is our
position with that of the pioneer days
of the medical profession in lowa.
Then, long rides over desolate prairies,
sloughs and corduroy bridges—when
pill bags, stocked with calomel, whiskey
and the lancet, held dominion! Sacrifice
was graven with a pen of iron upon the
life of the young practitioner, laying
the foundation oi his future fortune in
these, then western wilds. But now, I
say it with generous elation, that our
profession has kept pace with the
marvelous growth of the State. I need
scarcely allude to our well built cities,
elegant homes, the ad vantages of travel
aud marvelous facilities for trans
mission of thought; or refer to our
medical literature and medical colleges,
and extended materia medica embrac
ing in its therapeutics, remedies of al
most miraculous pc «er. 1 fully believe
that our profession will keep pace with
the speed of modern improvement, and
I know of no more useful member of
society than a well rounded, educated
physician, exemplyfying the time
honored maxim, " mens sun a in sano
rorpore.
We are especially confronted at this
present time with the attitude of the
State of lowa toward the liquor traffic,
and I think the lustory of the past
evinces that our profession will be
equal to, and worthy of the occasion.
lowa—“ thut is the land " —seems to be
situated at the focus of the history of
the past and present, and is the blossom
of the civilization of the century.
The moral forces set in motion by
Omniscience in the ages long gone by,
are now bearing fruit on our soil. By
the law of the “ survival of the fittest,”
we have reached that exalted position
where the eyes of the world are upon
us; and while by faith our State has been
entering on new and untried ground, a
“ pillar of fire” has been with her.
There is no anachronism in the
medical profession of lowa and I fully
believe that it will heartily support this
fearless young State in its gigantic
struggle with a social disease that
honey-combs society. •
Of necessity, I am limited in my re
marks at this time, and desiring to be
practical in what 1 say to-day. I avail
myself of this opportunity, to make
mostly suggestions on this subject:
First. I would suggest that all
physicians in the State should be
registered, and none should be admitted
to registration without examination by
the State Board of Health, unless they
have diplomas.
Second. That intoxicants for medical
purposes should only be sold by regis
tered pharmacists upon the prescription
of registered physicians.
Third. Where either the physician or
pharmacist acts colorably in dealing
with intoxicants, be should forfeit his
registration and professional rights in
lowa.
Fourth. The medical profession
should endeavor to reduce the use of in
toxicants in the practice to a minimum.
The experience of the observing
physician at the bedside in the use of
intoxicants, corroborates the deduction
of science that they are not needed as a
remedy, although their anesthetic
properties and solvent qualities are
recognized.
The impression has prevailed to a
greater or less extent that intoxicants
are necessary and indispensable in
such cases as concussion, collapse,
typhoid fever, consumption, dyspepsia
and kindred diseases.
A long course of observation and ex
perience has forced me to the most
fwitive conviction to me contrary, and
have no doubt that there are others
here who have reached the same con
clusion by the same painful process.
To illustrate: A few months ago in
treating fractures and shocks, resulting
from a fall of a couple of workmen
from a scaffolding fifty feet high, pro
ducing insensibility with the usual
concomitant symptoms, no intoxicants
were used;" the treatment was
hypodermically, morphine and atropia,
followed by a full dose of quinine for
its tonic effect; reaction was prompt
and permanent.
Take another case: I was privileged
last summer to assist Dr. W. F. Peck in
a case of ovariotomy; the patient was a
little slender girl, and about one-thinl
of her entire weight was removed in
the operation, and not a drop of alcohol
was prescribed for the occasion. A
good recovery followed.
So far as typhoid fever is concerned,
who to-day would rely upon intoxicants
when an ouuee of beef tea will ac
complish more towards recovery than
a pint of whisLy? I probably ought
to ask pardon of the beef tea for the
comparison.
In consumption—with cod-liver oil
and hygiene mueh may be accomplished,
while’ intoxicants, so far as my ex
perience goes, have proven not only in
efficient, but I believe absolutely hurt
ful. Dr. Palmer [Science and Practice
of Medicine, V. 11, page 292,] says:
“An impression seems to haveobtailied
a footing in this country that the use
of alcohol, even in excessive quantities,
tends to prevent consumption. The
origin of this opinion it is not easy to
discover. It was not imported from
Europe, for, so far as I have been able
to ascertain, it is not held there by any
respectable authority. It is not sus
tained by any authenticated authority
with which 1 am acquainted.”
The statistical observations of Dr.
Bell, of Brooklyn, N.Y., Dr. Davis, ot
Chicago, and all other authorities of
this country, so far as my knowledge
extends, point decidedly in the other
direction. “Lebert emphatically states
that the presence of alcohol is a cause
of consumption,” and Williams,
Chambers, Peacok, Atkin, and others
in England, “appear to concur in this
view.” It is generally held that alcohol
ism is a frequent cause of the fibroid
form of the disease. It certainly in
duces a lower vitality, produces ratty
and other forms of degeneration, and it
would be rational to infer that it pro
motes ratter than prevents the de
generative changes of phthisis.
The International Medical Congress,
which met in Philadelphia in 1876, at
which over six hundred delegates were
present from this country and Europe,
adopted a report in which” alcohol was
declared to have no food value what
ever, and to be so injurious in its effect
on the human organism as to leave a
grave doubt whether even as a
medicine it did not do more harm than
good.”
It is well settled by medical science
that the gastric juices have no effect
upon alconol, and hence it is indigest
ible. It is a foreign substance in the
blood, retarding the circulation. It
draws the water and albumen from the
corpuscles and only tends to disorganize
the system.
Alcohol derives its popularity with
the uneducated chiefiy on account of
its anesthetic q unities—its action being
closely allied to that of chloroform.
Dr. If. 8. Davis, in a treatise upon
this subject, uses the following
language: “Like tether and chloroform,
the presence of alcohol diminishes the
sensibility of the nervous system and
brain, thereby rendering the individual
less conscious of all outward and ex
terior impressions. This diminution
of sensibility, or anesthesia, is de
veloped in direct ratio to the quantity
of alcohol taken and may be seen in all
stages from simple exemption from all
fee* mg of fatigue, pain, idea of weight
exhibited by ease, buoyancy, hilarity,
etc* to that of complete unconscious
ness and loss of muscular power, it is
this anesthetic effect of aloohol that
has led to all the popular errors and
contradictory usee which have proved
so destructive to human health and
happinm* It km long been one of
Urn noted paradoxes of human action
that the same Individual would resort
SI the same alcoholic drink *e warm
!tn in winter, protect him frees the
sum to^ strengthen when
ESTABLISHED 1850.
“With these facts now before us, the
explanation of all this is apparent. The
alcohol does not relieve the individual
from cold by increasing his temper
ature; nor from heat by cooling him;
nor from weakness and exhaustion by
nourishing his tissues; nor yet from
affliction by increasi. g his nerve
power; but simnly by diminishing the
sensibility of his nerve structures and
thereby lesscninK his consciousness of
impressions, whether from cold, or
heat, or weariness, or pain. In other
words, the presence of the alcohol has
not in any degree lessened the effects
of the evils to which he is exposed, but
has diminished his consciousness to
their existence and thereby impaired
his judgment concerning the degree of
their action upon him. It is this
property of alcohol to produce that
sense of ease, buoyancy, andexhilera
tion arising from a moderate diminu
tion of nerve sensibility, that gives it
the fascinating ami delusive power
over the human race which it has
wielded for centuiies gone by.”
There would be no objection to
alcohol ns an anesthetic were it not for
its brutalizing effects when the appetite
for strong drink is developed, or
awakened, which is too often the case
when administered as a medicine.
The results of alcoholism—drunken
ness, crime, debauchery, and delirium
tremens—l need scarcely mention; but
I may briefly allude to a subject not so
well understood; the relation ofdrunk
enness in the parent to insanity in the
offspring. The Medical Superintendent
of Eastern Michigan Asylum for the
Insane says: “A careful analysis of
several hundred persons treated shows
that in about per cent of the males,
and about of the females, there was
a definite history of inebriety in one
or both parents. The female'chihlren
of drunkards suffer in relative fre*
quency from the following forms oi
insanity: mania, dementia, rnelan
cholia, and idiocy. * * * In
some instances an inebriate heredity
developes in one child as depravity, iii
another as inebriety, in a thin! as
hysteria, and in a fourth as insanity.
* * * Inebriety in parents is a
frequent cause of insanity of their
children, because drunkenness pro
duces a transient insanity even in a
healthy brain. Chronic drunkenness
produces organic brain diseases, bring
ing in their train, impairment of the
memory, inactivity of the reason, a
weakening of the will, and loss of the
natural affections; all of which are
capable of transmission to their chil
dren.” Dr. W. A. Hammond, ou this
subject, holds substantiallv the same
opinion.
The report for 1180 of the Superin
tendent of the Asylum at Mt. Pleasant,
shows that out of 2,52tf male cases. 219
were due to intemperance and 222 to
masturbation, thus demonstrating that
about one-fifth of all the insanity
males in our state is due to these two
causes, and that they are about equal
in their destructive power. “More
need not be said; less could not be said.”
Ladies and gentlemen: “Wine is a
mocker, strong drink is raging, and
whosoever is deceived thereby is not
wise.” When I attended lectures at
Indiana Medical College, I witnessed
the dissection of the oodv of a con
firmed drunkard, who had frozen to
death while intoxicated. In the
ventricles of his brain was a fluid,
which, when a match was applied,
burned like alcohol. Facts are God’s
arguments. “In His word he reasoned
of righteousness, temperance, and
judgment to come,"declaring that “No
drunkard should inherit the kingdom
of heaven,” and the promotion of
temperance, from the foregoing argu
ments, becomes a binding obligation
upon the medical fraternity. The med
ical profession is intrusted with an
exalted commission, and with it re
sponsibilities equally great. Let us.
tnen.be worthy of our high calling, and
do our utmost to alleviate and prevent
. uttering from this as well as all other
causes. The vital question of the rigth
and duty of society in lowa to protect
itself by law from the ravages of the
liquor traffic, has passed beyond the
stage of debate;the time has come for
action—for lovalty—for loving ol»edi
ence to our beloved State. At this
crisis the medical profession of lowa
ought not stand as quasi ally of the
liquor traffic. O, medicine! how’ many
crimes have l>een committed in thy
name! Under the garb of medicine the
liquor traffic is seeking to retain its
ascendancy in our State. This is its
last ditch.
We move in a circle in which true
dignity ought to be maintained, and
there should be on our part an avoid
ance of everything that would lessen
its excellence. I nave been led to
adopt the line of thought in this ad
dress, in part, by the well known fact
that a few of our profession have fall
en victims to the deplorable drink
habit; and as we stand before the com
munity as a body of practitiouers, into
whose hands is committed the ail
ments and sufferings and sorrows of
our respective communities, ought we
not to avoid everything that would
diminish the respect and confidence
reposed in us? Let each one then—
“So live that wh**u thy summons come to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each shall take
His chamber In the silent hails of death.
Thou K<> not. like the quarry slave at night.
Scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and
soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach the grave.
Like one that wraps the drapery Of his eowh
About him, and lies dowu to pleasant dreams.”

LOCAL MATTERS.
About Joseph Cook.— To the Ed
itors.—The Rev.’ Joseph Cook in his
lecture in Oskaloosa, said “nature
makes no half hinges, the fact that we
all desire immortality is evidence we
are immortal.V Why did he not also
say God plants no desire in the human
breast, without giving positive proof
of the fulfillment Jof that desire, then
instead of turning to his Bible and
hugging.it ,to;his,breast and saying this
is the witness, (without giving his
audience any evidence of its being the
witness,; why did he not say the
promise of the book was that when we
had the power of the Holy Ghost, that
we could see spirits, and converse with
them, that they may give us knowledge
and wisdom, power to heal the sick,
foretell events. Paulwas so familiar
with spirits after he received the Holy
Ghost, that in relating an incident he
had forgotten whether he received it
from a spirit or from a mortal; for he
says, “I knew a man al>out fourteen
years ago, whether in body or out of
body I cannot say.” There are four
million of people in the United States
that believe man is immortal upon
positive evidence, both in the Bible aud
out ot it. amongst these are some of
the best scientific and literary minds
of the age. The question as to whether
there is any positive proof of continual
existauce beyond the grave, is the battle
between Spiritualism and Materialism,
and we do not ask Joseph Cook to tight
our battles. The battle l»etweeii
Orthodox Christianity and Material
ism is, is the account of the creation as
as given in Genesis correct. Did God
create Adam and Eve. and place them
in the Garden of Eden; did the devil
there in the form of a serpent beguile
them, and as the result of their fall did
we all become in danger of hell, and did
G«hl come down to earth and beget a
son from a Virgin woman, and through
his atoning blood, and through this
alone, are we to be saved from this end
less hell? If man was never iu danger
of a hell, then there was never any
necessity of a Savior to redeem him
from something he never was in danger
of. This personal devil and eternal
hell is the foundation of the blood
atoument doctrine; if it be true why
prove it, and defend it, if it cannot be
maintained in this enlightened age why
not be houest and say so. Joseph Cook
preaches the blo*nl atoument doctrine
when at home iu his own pulpit, why
not defend it upon the public rostrum
when he is getting one hundred dollars
a night. There are thousands of people
outside of Ortlnxlox churches that are
firm lielievers in a continued life be
>ond the grave, and in future rewards
and punishments; but they cannot join
the churches without subscribing to
doctrines they cannot believe, and they
are commencing to doubt if the clergy
themselves believe them when they
dare not defend them od the public
rostrum. The question between the or
thodox and the balance of the world is
not, is or is not man immortal, Plato and
Socrates taught and thousands of the
ancients believed ill immortality of the
sou!, hundreds of years before the birth
of Christ. The question is are we saved
through the atoning blood of Jesus, and
is be the only one that has brought im
mortality to light; if so defend it, gen tie
men, if not say so. and join hands with
the thousands outside the churches to
conscientious to subscribe to what they
do not believe, and let us join band in
hand in putting down this flood tide of
crime, villianv, rascality, intemperance
aud materialism, that threatens the
very perpeturuv of our civilization.
If you cannot ignore orthodox tenets
that our civilization has outgrown,
then you must take your j>ositiou just
where the church has stood for fifteen
hundred years, as the defenders of the
the old civilization as against the new;
fighting and opposing To-day and ac
ceptingand embracing to-morrow. Al
ready Joseph Cook iu his lecture was
willing to admit Garrison, Lincoln and
Phillips info Heaven; but when those
men were pleading for the down
trodden and oppressed slave, there was
no orthodox church doors that could
swing open fc* t heir admission. Truly
the world mo.es and we will not have
to wait long until we can hear the
clergy adoring Paine and extolling
Ingersoll. M. Larkin.
Again the Preacher.— Last Sun
day the Rev. Thomas E. Greeu, of the
Eighth Presbyterian Church, Chicago,
preached on the topic of “Roller
Skates,” and from a report of the ser
mon we extract the following for our
Sunday readers: “I have been askeu to
speak of the skating-rink, and 1 have
led you thus up to the consideration of
it, that you might see in it to begin
with—not on the one side a sort of
rhythmic paradise, nor on the other,
as a fanatical religious paper called it
recently, *, crater of hell,’ and sug
gested a warfare against the devil with
dynamite—but simply an attempt at
amusement lately come into vogue,
and hence much discussed." “I see in
roller-skating many things to praise.
First, it is an amusement, pure ami sim
ple. There is no strain or mental bur
den in it; there is no effort requi red save
as one chooses to enlist. Second, there
is in it admirable physical exercise.
It calls into requisition every muscle
and joint of the body; it is boating
without the risk of a spill, a {Kind with
out any danger of frozen ears or wet
feet, it quickens the circulation, ex
pands the chest, strengthens the limbs,
gives color to the cheek and sparkle to
the eye. It is the best physical exercise
L have ever seen, if it be iised, and not
abused. It is the best remedy for sal
low, puny life we have ever found.
Third, it breeds grace and ease of
movement. It is like any other
rhythmic, graceful motion moving to
music; it cultivates gracefulness and
elegance of carriage and adds to the
beauty and symmetry of life. Look at
the Apollo Belvedere. Can you fancy
such a figure shuffling along—coming
down this aisle, stepping with heels
first, making muse enough for a Cardiff
giant, and slouching into a seat like a
half-drunken brawler? I>on*t you
think it adds to the beauty and charm
of a young lady if she' walks with
straight and even carriage and with
elastic step, rather than shuffle along,
bent and awkward? But now, while
you may gam amusement, grace and
strength from the skating-rink better
than any other form of amusement we
ever had, 1 found as many things to
condemn. The evil was not in the use
of the rink, but in the abuse. 1 found
nothing inherently wrong in roller
skating—nothing that would justify
the question 1 heard a person ask a
young lady the other day: ‘How would
you like to have the Lord see you com
ing out of a skating-rink ?’ I protest
against that current distortion of Our
Blessed Lord ? 1 should not like to
meet Him if 1 were coming out of a
saloon, staggering in besotted stupidi
ty; nor if 1 were coming out of a gam
bling house with ill-gotteu gains; nor if
1 were coming from business, where
the day had been stained with ques
tionable transactions. But if I have
sought amusement after perplexing
labor—if I have on my lip the hearty
laugh of earnest pleasure and good
humor—l can find no line of restraint
in the character or teaching of Christ
to check its gladness. The question is
one of the narrow distortions of the
broad, free spirit of the Gospel. And
another question 1 heard was: ’Do you
think the laird ever went to skating
rinks?’ O, lam tired of such folly!
But this does not mitigate the evil of
the abuse of the skating-rink. First,
there is a grave evil ia the senseless
prolongation of the exercise. * • *
Second, there is the danger of promis
cuous contact and intercourse. You
get a vestige of the same thing every
day in the street, in the horse-car, iu
the store—the ogling glare and the silly
simper—symptoms of a devil inside.
Appeal fok the Band of Hop:*.—
The Band of How meets each Sunday
afternoon, at 4 o'clock, in the First M.
E. church. Mrs. E. J. Wright is Pr«ei
dent, and has an efficient corps of
teachers, whose hearts are in the work.
Will not toe parents of Oskaloosa show
their appreciation of this effort for the
good or the children of this city, by
sending them, and also coming them
selves. Sunday after Sunday, children
that should be here, are running loose
in disrespect off the day, and learning
lessons of evil This institution for
all classes of children, and the lessons
are of practical instruction. When it
was re-organised by Col Woodford, the
children came in crowds, and the par
ents came too. The continual workers
need the sympathy and presence of tbs
parents all the time. This work means
sairation from the curse of strong
drink for the children who wilt be the
future law-mtikera What is good for
our children, is good for parents, and
the blessings they secure wsshall share
in as they walk in wisdom’s ways.
