Correspondence aollcited from every township n Hook Island county. Fhidat. November 13. 1896. Uncle Sam is long suffering, bat when his '-dander is up" even Eng land cornea to time. It has been figured oat. after all the blow, tbat an aggregate change ol 25,000 votes would have elected Br van. The LewUtnwn Democrat puts it this way: "May the next big cam paign be a? decent, bat Heaven send the roosters to our coop!" It is finally settled tbat California is in the republican column. What more, after all, could have been ex pected of the state of the Golden liate? Sciicvlek county, one of the counties associated with Rock island county in the old Eleventh congres sional district, gave the largest dem craiicvotein its history in the late e'ection. The government has decided to make dried apples one of the princi pal articles of diet on the Indian reservations. All Lo needs now is a little water to get up a swell func tion at any time. A Chicago youth who wanted to get into society indulged in forgerv, larcony and the obtaining of money under false pretenses to gratify his ntnlitRn. And yet some people as sert that Chicago society isn't ex clusive. The editorial postofii -e compact is complete. The Rock Islander an nounces in this week's isue its un qualified support of Brer. Walter Johnson's aspirations for federal recognition, bro. Quayle will donbt les be cot so!cd with the place of sur veyor of the port. Gov. Altgeli, who had been agreed upon by the democrats for the complimentary vote for United States senator in the Illinois legisla ture the coming winter, and also for mayor of Chicago next spring, an swers that he is not a candidate for any office within the gift of man. The governor became the candidate for reelection much against his will. LU-dlkt township, in Haskell county. Kansas, was carried for Pal mer and lJ'ickner. In that township live democrats voted the Indianapolis ticket and carried it by one plurality. Against this McKinley and Hobart had four votes. Bryan and Sewall two votes and Bryan and Watson one vote. The Palmer and Buckncr men felt ko good over their victory that Saturday afternoon they mounted bronchos and led the McKinley and Hobart and BryRn and Watson men in chains around the township. The two Bryan and Sewall men stood aloof from the festivities. CommltiH Holds Itself Aloof. Ye gods, what a divil of a time they must have had at the republi ban county committee meeting ves terday afternoon; according to this morning's Union, which desnribes the barbarous proceedings under the head of -A Central Junta," and what follows this romantic caption is an account of how Editor Johnson's hated rivil attempted to manipalate the august body in true Hanna style, but that it would not have it that way, and eorjsi rpeniiy sat down on the nndoubticg Thomas. Chairman Eastman, however, declares there was no attempt on the part ol the good Samaritan of Kock Island to nse the committee. "We had a business session first." said the chairman, and then went into secret tension. All wo did there I am not at liberty to state, but nobody attempted any un-fairne-s with the committee. There were differences of opinion as to the province of the (oainiittc, and no personal preferences were mentioned or consilered. The msjoiity fav ored the county committee holding itself aloof as a bodv from interfering: in local pDstotlice fights cr indorsing any particular candidate. The mem bers, thouih. are at li baity to do as they pleae." So the wicked Thomas may indorse himself if h wants to. and the Wily Baker may formally express himself for whoever may be in a position to name him as" his assistant but neither can call down the approval of the powers that be. on their po liticnl transactions.

HOBBS Honest Methods Approved, The Free Distribution of Dr. Hobbs' Sparagns Kidney Pills From the Drug Store of T. H. Thomas, Corner Second avenue and Seventeenth Sreet., ended yesterday. Hundreds Now 1&tlrg the Remecy in This Ciiy and Vicln ty What Will the Result Be? Last night the distributicn of free samples of Dr. Hubbv Spragus Kid nev nils closed at the drug store of T. II. Thomas, corner of Second ave nue and Seventeenth street, and will go into history as one of the most successful events that has, ever taken place in this city. The frightful umber of people who are suffering in one way or another from kidney troubles in this vic'nity can only be estimated by the enormous number of sample packets whi:h were given out lhursday to all persons Wer ested in this city who applied for a sample of these wonderful pills. Dr. Hobbs' representative was seen last night at his hotel, wearing a look of confidence that betokens the man who feels tbat he knows what he is talking about. He said, in answer to the questions put to him by the repoiter: "Oh. yes: I know the public are akepiical of anything new, especially in toe medicine line. It is reasonable to suppose that thev shou d be, for have they not been humbugged enough by those who place but little value even on death. when it comes to the question of gathering in a few ill-gotten dollars? 'ur. Hobbs appreciates all this. and is determined tbat the worth of his medicine sbal be fully known and proven before the public Is asked to spend a penny. bat Dr. Hobbs1 Sparagus Kidney Pills are guaranteed to do is to cure ail kid ney derangements. Do you know that rheumatism in nine-tenths of all cases, arises from kidney troubles of one sort or another." Anv physician will tell you that the common origin of all rheumatic troubles is uric acid in the blood. What do you do first, that being the rase? Go for the cause. Get your kidney in perfect working order, and away will go the rneumatism, because when your kid neye, whose duty it is to filt-r a 1 poisons and impurities from the blood, removes the uric acid, the cause of the rheumatism will be gone and the rheumatism with it. Here are some of the symptoms which are danger signal, anil, in a large majority of cases, indicate the outset ol that most insidious of all maladies. Bright' disease of the kid neys: Pain in the back and cider. headache, nervousness, frequent iitirsi, not ana art skin, shortness tf breath, evil forebodings, troubled sieep. puiuness of the eyelids, swell ing of the feet and ankles, loos of flesh, dark colored or scanty urioe, with deposits of casts, etc., "and the presence of renal epithelium, tube casts and albumen in the urine. These are some, not ail. of the symptoms of Bright' disease, in flammation or congestion of the kidneys, nephritis, etc.. and these Dr. Hobbs' Sparagus Kidney fills are guaranteed to cure."
