Intermittent Fever is so common in
the country as scarcely to need comment.
The causes which produce it are such as
cold, irregular living, over exertion, low
spirits, night air, exposure to miasmatic
exhalations, &c, In large cities where
edge tools and agricultural implements are
manufactured, the grinder protects his
lungs from the injurious effect of the dust
flying off the grindstone by wearing a
respirator. The coal miner ere he descends
the shaft provides himself with a safety
lamp to guard against fire damp. Now it
is equally necessary for those who are
brought in contact with any of the causes
leading to intermittent fever, to provide
themselves with that well known and
highly Ofteemed remedy against it, the
Home Stomach Bitters.

ALEX. VALENTINE FOUND GUIL
TY OF THE MURDER OF
He Gets 20 Years in the Penitentiary.
The trial of Alexander Valentine, for
the murder of Nelson Stark, the Swede
shoemaker Hying near Orion, about the
8th of last April, which has been oc-
cupping the Henry county circuit court for
several days past was concluded last even
ing, and to-day a dispatch was received at
The Argus Office from Cambridge,
stating that Valentine had been found
guilty and given 20 years in the penitentiary
The particulars of this case are already
known to the readers of The Argus, as
the first account of the affair appeared in
this paper. Mark was an old bachelor; a
miser; was supposed to nave $voo or $ U0
concealed in the house; was found
murdered in his house on the 10th of
April, and. from appearances, had been
dead about two days. Everything con
nected with the affair was a mystery un
til after the arrest of the Westphal
burglars, when The Argus suggested
that the officers "pump" those parties
and see if something couhTnot be learned
in regard to the affair, etc., etc,. The
suggestion was followed, and the result
was Valentine's arrest and now his con
Valentine turned state's evidence against
the Westphals and Jack Currant in the
Westphal burglary case and they were
"sent up" for 20 years each. . In retalia
tion, the Westphals, Ed., the father, and
Ike, the son, turned state's evidence in
this murder case, and they were brought
from Joliet in charge of officers to testify
at the trial. They were kept separated
not even being allowed to talk in the cars
yet both told a very straight story. Ike
said that Valentine, Ed. Westphal, himself
and a fellow calling himself "Doc" Brown
formerly of Davenport, had done the kill
ing; that his father was posted on the
outside of the house to watch, while Valen
tin , Brown and himself went into the
house; that Brown held Stark while Val
entine killed him, while he (Ike) - stood by
and was too badly frighteued to do any
thing until after Stark was dead, when he
assisted in the search for the money; he
told where the money was found; how
much there was (about $800 in gold, silver
and greenbacks); how it was wrapped up
now divided, and also stated the position
of the body and some of the furniture o

was exactly .as they were. when the mur !
dered man was found.
Ben Stemple, of this city, testified that
Valentine had proposed tohim to rob an
old man near where Valentine lived and
that a short time afterward Stark was
murdered and robbed and that from
Valentine's conversation this was the
place he hadimeant.
A number of other witnesses from this
city were disc'. called and 'examined in re
gard to whaOhey had heard or knew of
the matter among them August llues
ing, late sheriff; August Ilerkert, late
deputy sheriff; City Marshal Ilawes,
State's Attorney Parmcnter, and Circuit
1 be attorneys in the case were Mate s
AttorneyiThomasJE. Milchrist, of Galva,
and Hon. Charles Dunham, of Geneseo,
for the prosecution; fand Ira Marston,
Esq., of Cambridge, (of Shepherd &
Maiston) and Hon. W. W. C'Brien of
Chicago for the defense.
Mr. O'Brien was at the Harper House
last evening and when he told us
that the case had gone to jury we asked
his opinion ot it. He said,
nobody can tell what a iury
do. I thought I had a good
until 1 heard Mr. Dunham s three
hour speech at the close and that stagger
ed me. I consider Mr. Dunham one of
the ablest men in the state. He is one of
the closest and most forcible reasoners I
have met. His speech was a very power
ful one indeed. But I had.to be in Chicago
in the morning and could not wait tor the
Ruffianism in Edgington.
On Thursday night, the 1st inst. a
most dastardly outrage was perpetrated in
Edgington, which has created much ex
citement in that Quiet neighborhood.
Near the village resides the family of Mr.
Samuel Roose, one of the most respectable
families in the township, a family not
known to have an enemy in the world.
and all its members held in high esteem
by all good people. Mr. Smith, the
Methodist clergyman, and his wife and
child, were staying there. They had been
living at or near Taylor Ridge, and one of
their children had recently died from
accidentally taking concentrated lye. The
child had only been buried a day or two
previous to this outrage. It was near 9
o'clock and the family were about
retiring for the night. There
was a light in an upper room and in
two lower rooms, when suddenly the
household were startled by a crash of
windows, from rocks as large as turnips,
One lock barely missed the head of the
child of Mr. Smith. Fifteen lights ot
glass were broken and also some of the
sash, and from each of the three rooms.
The men in the houso ran out as soon as
possible and raised help, but did not find
the villains, though they traced tracks in
the snow to a house in which it is believed
they were secreted. An effort was made
to get a warrant for searching the house,
but without success. The cause ot this
most villianous proceeding is not known,
but we think the good people of the town
owe it to their good name and their future
peace and safety to unite in hunting down
the guilty parties and punishing them as

A Right Decision.
The decision of the Medical Association
that the hydrant water is the probable
causo of the prevailing epidemic will be of
great advantage to the business of Ilock
Island, for the reason that people will now
not be afraid to come here for fear of tak
ing an atmospheric disease, or a disease
arising from something within the water
district of Rock Island which medical men
could not discover. People can avoid the
use of the water, which, within a year,
has been so fearfully impregnated with
the vastly increasing sewage. But if
was an atmospheric disease,confined to the
water district of Rock Island, or proceeded
from some hidden and mysterious cause
which the medical profession could no
discover it would deter people from com
ing here at all, and would cause those who
are here to sell out and get away as fast
possible, The business men and property
holders owe thanks to the Medical Associ
ation for its decision.
The other decision, too, in relation to
locating pumping works or procuring wa
ter supply for a city from a point contain"
inated with sewage also will command uni
versal respect. How any man could vote
against that is more than we can divine.

Outrage by a Hackman.
The Gazette of this morning says:
xboutten o'clock Thursday night, a
hack driver attempted to outrage the
person oi a woman whom he was convey
ing to this city from Rick Island. Her
husband had not the money with which
to pay two fares, and so sent his wife for
ward in the hack. It was about the cen
tre of the bridge that the assault occurr
ed, x he woman managed to get out of
the door, which was open and fly to the
south end of the bridge, while the
driver came on to Davenport. She met
her husband at the south end, and both
hurried forward in hopes of overtaking
the hack, and having the north guard ar
rest him but they weren't quick
enouth. This is the story told the
guard at the Davenport end, by the wife
and husband. Both refused to give their
name, the husband saying it was bad
enough without the name, They didn't
know the number of the hack."
The law in regard to number, owner,
and driver of hacks7 and rates of fare has
never been enforced in this city, aud n
city officer seems to care whether it is oi
not. Have those whose duty it is to ea
torce the law any good reasons tor neg
lecting their duty? They are sworn to en
force all the laws. When people see a
city officer oblivious to the enforcement of
laws ha has taken an oath to enforce,
they don't always attribute the neglect to
an honorable reason.

on Monday night at Dart s Hall.
The entertainment last evening was one
of the most delightful ever witnessed in
Rock Island. Such rollicking fun. and
ludicrous scenes, and capital acting, and
charming singing, etc., etc., are not ex
hibited by any other combination. While
all desarved praise, Miss Mc Henry car
ricd the house in raptures of applause
and was greatly liked by all. Mr, Meader,
also, in "All that glitters is not gold" won
a tremenduous encore. The whole enter
taiment was delightful, and the company
may be sure of a crowded house when they
It is unfortunate that we have
not a stage adequate to good per
formances of the kind. The actors are 60
circumscribed in their movements that
good acting is almost impossible. Many
good thhgs have to be omitted for want
of room, and nothing can be as well done
as on a suitable stage. We know a party

oaturaay iuarcn a. a man arrived in
this city on the western C, R. I. & P.
passenger train last evening naving in
charge an insane mute a man apparently
about oo years ot age, who he put m the
Bellows House 'bus. Deputy Marshal
Miller and Policeman Metsch were at the
depot at the time, and they noticed that
me man resisted somewhat, and they ac
cordingly watched and followed his com
panion, who jumped iuto the Bellows
House baggage wagon and went to the
hotel. The officers followed, and upou
arriving there saw that the man who had
cooae in the bus was insane and a mute,
and they called on his companion to takp
care of him but he denied that he had
ever seen the man before. The officers
then related the scene at the depot, and
the fellow wiltec?. He said his name
was G. II. Goldsborough; that he is a
farmer and lives four miles from
Muscatine; that the supervisor there
had engaged him to bring tht
mute (whose name seems to be More
land) to this city and leave him here as
he was a pretty htavy expense to Musca
tine county. This is an old game, fre
quently played by Iowa officials to get rid
of their paupers. Goldsborouch aud the
mute were taken to jail. During tha Dight
the mute tore off all his clothes. The case
was compromised with Goldsboroueh
to-day by State's Attorney Parmenter aud
Supervisor Aster, by his paying all ex
penses and taking the pauper back to
Mascatice as he could not be prosecuted
criminally, and & civil suit would take too
long. Dep ity Marshal Miller and Police
man Metsch are entitled to credit for
following the rascal and blocking his game
ot throwing the man on this county for
support. Deputy Marshal Miller and
Supervisor Aster saw the parties over the
river and into the railroad depot to-day.
Danz and Kopping, the Drury town
ship bulldozers, quietly "skipped out'
yesterday without giving security tor the
costs in their case, and Constable Harris
was sent after them. He accidentally met
them at Black Hawk, on the new railroad,
late yesterday afternoon, and arrested
them, lie was alone, however, and as
they refused to come he corld not bring
them both but he walked Danz back to
Milau, and then brought him to this city
and lodged him in jail. Officers are look
ing for Kopping.
