The Davenport Times attributes the dispute which has arisen be tween the Rock Island & IVoria and tbe Davenport A Bock Island Bridge and Terminal company, over the property rights at tbe foot of Sev enth street, this city, to tbe indirect influence of the C, K. I. & P. Re ferring to the last named corporation it says': "The system would be so te what affected by the lower bridge, as the completion of the structure will mean some very lively competi tion for the business of this section. There is no doubt but the comple tion of the lower bridge for which the business men of Davenport have long been clamoring, will mean ad ditional railroad facilities for this city, and realizing this the Rock Isl and road has never been accused of any friendliness toward a movement for another bridge at this point. At any rate, it is being credited with the responsibility for the 'dog-in-the-manger' policy of the R. I. & P., and as a result is being roundly cen sured by business men and other cit izens for the attempt to f ro strafe a project in which the people of this city are so vitally interested. There has been some talk of a mass meeting to voice a public protest against this narrow policy of the Bock Island ' in terests, and it is possible that such a meeting may yet be held in order to afford an outlet to public indigna tion. A lower bridge has been de sired for years,and now that it is with in their grasp, the business men and citizens of Davenport do not propose to see the prize for which they have yearned swept away by the obstruc tive tactics of a rival corporation." . Until the present difliculty arose, it had been supposed that the lower bridge was as much of a Rock Island institution as one calculated to be entirely beneficial to . Davenport. While as a matter of fact all the sub scriptions were made on that side of the river, yet Rock Island has cheer fully acquiesce 1 in extending every encouragement as Davenport has. and this city does not feel at this time disposed to take np a quarrel between two corporations which has been taken into the eonrts, to be de cided purely on its legal status. The bridge company has always been en couraged here, and should be, al though it is doubtful if, judging from the experiences of the past, Davenport would show the same friendly spirit toward an enterprise lamerea exclusively Dy capital from this side of the river. Rock Island, however, has never been clanUh in matters of this kind. It wants the bridge built. It leads Davenport in rauroaa iacumes ana always will, having the advantages that that city never can equal and for which i would give a great deal, in having its name carried by two prominent railroads. Rock Island is seeking all tbe means of transportation it can secure just as Davenport is, but it is not unmindful of possessing some ad vantages already, and it is not its poncy 10 take up tbe quarrels be tween those which are here and those which are to come, when they per tain entirely to private rights. THEY NEVER CAME BACK. Twa Davenport Women Play the Sympa thy Racket on tha Pollae. Two women claiming Davenport as mon pinue 01 resilience piajea tne sympathy racket at police headquar ters last night, after being placed under arrest, by explaining about their little children at home and one thing and another. They promised faithfully to make their appearance at 10 o'clock this morning. So they were given their liberty; and they have it yet. " One of the women said her name was Mrs. Kroger The two were ar rested at the rear of Knrr'a livarv barn on Second avenue, where some men were chasing the duck." Thev were given a ride in the patrol. Both showed the effects of having in dulged in a few bowls of the com mon. Then they made a strong talk for their liberation until their ap pearance for trial was required; and it went. But they have not showed np as yet. A Valuable Preaerlptlon. Editor Morrison, of the Worthing ton, Ind., Sun, writes: "You have a valuable prescription in Electric Bitters, and I can cheerfully recom mend it for constipation and sick headache. tonic it has no equal." Mrs. 'Annie zjuh vantage urove avenue, Chicago, was all run down, could not eat nor digest food, had a back ache which never left her and felt tired and weary, but six bottles of Electric Bitters restored her health and renewed her strength.

Josun, Jane 2. We are having fine growing weather, and crops in this vicinity are encouraging. Eugene Hart nas finished paintioir for Charles Osborne, and haa now commenced upon the residence of D. c. aueui. Mabel Payne is the recipient of a very handsome Phoenix wheel a present from her grandmother, Mrs. Wilson, of Rock Island. Ed and Will McEoary, of Molioe, were at Joslin Wednesday last. They were on a horse-trading expedition, and seem to understand th. business. ! Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Dailcy, of Clin ton, came down -to Joslin to visit with Mr. Dailey's parents Saturday last. Mr. Dailey is city editor of the Clinton Age. Some of those farmers who have received seed from Washington, claim that they have failed to germ inate, ana are not to oe reitea upon. Farmers should raise their own seeds as much as possible. Mr. and Mrs. William Payne at tended the reunion of his regiment, the 13th Illinois volunteer infantry, Tuesday at Dixon. This regiment bears the distinction of having been the first to be sworn into the United Ststes service for three years daring tbe late war. Miss M. Davis, who teaches the Willow vale school, received a tele gram from her homo in Davenport stating that her father was seriously sick. After she arrived at Joslin Thursday morning to take the train a second telegram was received stat ing that he was dead. The gospel tent meetings led by Evangelist G. K. Smith, formerly Known as tbe boy .preacher, held under the auspices of the United Brethren church, are advertised to commence at Joslin Saturday even ing next, June 6, and will continue nightly at 7:15 o'clock. Sunday ser vices at 10:30 a. m.. 2:30 and 7:45 p. m. Farmers in this neighborhood are now greatly concerned over the rav ages of a worm which is destroying timothy, wheat and corn. G. C. Wake has about decided to plow np. field of timothy which seemed all right a couple of days ago, and now it is about worthless. James Don' nahoo had as pretty 30 acres of win ter wheat as he ever raised, which it was estimated would go S3 bushels to tbe acre, which is about destroyed, and be has decided to plow it np. The mischief is being caused by a striped black worm, about an inch or an inch-and-a-balf in length, which some claim is tbe army worm. They have commenced upon Mr.' Donna- noo's oorn, which they cut off clean to the ground. I have taken pains to verify tne above statements by seeing tne parties namea. MULTUM IN PAKVO. IS IT A TRIFLE? That Common Titrable, Hoar Stomach Now Kaowa to be tha Source of Sarioaui 'Sour stomach," is the common name for acid dyspepsia, and because it is-a common everyday trouble with many people, they have come to look upon it as of little consequence, as affecting the general health. Never theless, the most serions diseases have their beginning from this very condition. It is caused in the first place from weakness of the stomach, which instead of promptly digesting and diposing of the food, allows it to lie in the stomach for hours ferment ing, causing gas, sour rising in the mouth, heart burn, headaches, op pression, despondency, dullness, etc The blood is thin, impure, and circulation poor simply because it is replenished from this 'mass of fer menting, half digested food. This condition of the stomach cannot con tinue very long without deranging the nervous system, the kidneys, heart, liver or lungs. Which ever is weakest will break down first. Pure blood, strong nerves and muscles, firm, healthy flesh can only come from wholesome food well di gested. "Blood purifiers"and "nerve tonics" do not reach the cause of the mischief. Tbe stomach is the point to be looked after. The safest and surest way to cure any form of indi gestion is to take after each meal some harmless preparation which will of itself digest food. There it an excellent preparation of this kind composed of vegetable essences, pure pepsin. Golden Seal and fruit salts, sold by drnggists under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and these tablets tasett after meals assist di gestion wonderfully because they will digest the food promptly, before it has time to ferment and sour and the weak stomach relieved and as sisted in this way soon becomes strong and vigorous again. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are su perior to any secret patent medicines because yon knw what yon are tak ing into your stomach. They are sold by drnggists everywhere at 50 cents per package.
