There is contagion and death at the
Davenport Mile Track, and horses are
dying from its dread effects. Irene
D. a racer of the 2:19 class, is dead
and she was a Davenport horse, or
rather mare, of rreat promise. The
Haak-Meier horse. Jonas, is so ill
that serious apprehensions are enter
tained as to its recovery. Just what
the disease is remains conjectural.
Accepting the Union as authority,
papers in the neighborhood are already
lieginmng to refer to us as "wicked
Rock Island." While none will doubt
that this citv is in no wise as black
as her accusers, vet the instance
shows how eagerly the false light in
which the merning paper has placed
the city is seized upon by rival cities
in an attempt to show that there are
overshadowing influences for our good
works and advantages.
A radical change in the tempera
ture Is predicted by the weather bu
reau tonight. A fall of 'at least oo
dejfcrdei is not unlikely, judging from
present conditions and indications.
This morning the cold wave llag was
ordered up with the promise of a de
cline to about 10 above zero. At the
time the change was announced as
probable, the thermometer registered
40 above, and at noon it was 45,
showing that the atmospheric change
that awaits us tonight is to amount
almost to rapid transition from that
which borders on the summer to gen
uine mid-winter conditions.
As a sequence to the woeful picture
it drew for Rock Island in its issue of
yesterday, the Union gravely an
nounces this morning that things are
not so bad here now. For such grate
ful assurance from such a source due
acknowledgement should be made,
and the outside world Mill please be
jruided accordingly. But the manner
in which the morning paper seeks to
impress upon Johnny Jones the obli
gations he is under to it for diverting
trade into bis channels would be more
effective, but for the fact, according
to the versatile John, things have not
begun to come his way yet in the
manner indicated by the Union. Un
doubtedly Mr. Jones would, there
fore, like to have the aforesaid Union
give 'em another whirl.
Tb It of Hot DriokB.
Hot drinks have come into wide use
dtring late years among persons afflict
ed with indigestion. A tepid fluid ex
erts a marked sedative influence on the
gastric mucous membiaue and often re
lieves thepainfol sensations following
the meals of a chronic dyspeptic. '
Less reccgniztd perhaps is the in
fluence of bot drinks on the motor
functions of the stomach. In the or
dinary course of events nothing remains
lu the stomach six boors after a meal,
and the presence of alimentary debris
after that period indicates the presence
of some degree cf muscular paresis.
This condition of things may be greatly
benefited by the use of bot water with
or immediately ctter meal, cut in
chronic cntes permanent benefit can only
be obtained by perseverance, tbo treat
ment being methodically carried out for
As might be anticipated, the bot wa
ter treatment does not ameliorate tne
secretory defects in tbe same degree as
the muscular weakness, but by main
taining tbe stomach in a bygienio con
dition we may. at any rate, hope to
check farther degradation of tbe peptio
glands. The temperature of bot drinks
tbould be from 105 to 110 degrees F.
