DR. SCHENCK'S STANDARD
REMEDIES.
The standard remedies for all diseases of the
lungs are Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Schenck's
Skb Wbbd Tonic, and Schenck s Mandrake Pill,s
and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a
speedy cure is effeted.
To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of
Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess in the
treatment of pulmonary disease.
The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matters
la the lungs; nature throws it off by easy expect
oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a
slight cough will throw it ff, the patient has rest
and the lungs begin to heal . "
To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this,
Schenk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to
1 cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's Man
drake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc
tions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely
and the liver is soon recieved.
Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a trentle stimulant
and alterative; the alkali or which it is composed
mixes with the food and prevents sourine. It as
sists the digestion by toning up the stomach to a
healthy condition, so that the food and the Pul
monic syrup will make good Diood; then the luiifjs
heal, and the paiient will surely get well if care is
taken to prevent fresh cold.
All who wish to consult Dr. fccneuit, either per-
j sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office
corner of Sixth and arch Sts., Philadelphia, every
Monday.
Scbenks medicines are solo by an druggists
throughout the country.
Chicago, 111., March 15. Stephen S.
Jones, editor of the Religio-Philosophical
Journal, 127 Fourth ayenue, was shot dead
in his office this afternoon by Dr. W. C.
Pike, who immediately gave himself up.
Jones lives with his family at St. Charles.
111., is 65 years old, and repuced wealthy.
It appears that Pike and his wife have
been rooming in Jones's building this
winter without paying rent, and it is sur
mised that this may have caused the
trouble. Pike alleged as the reason for the
killing that Jones seduced his wife, and he
produces a confession signed by bis wife
to that effect. Mrs. Pike enufirins her
husband's story, but the friends of the
deceased declare he was incapable of the
alleged crime. All parties involved are
spiritualists, and the affair causes consider
able excitement. Pike was held this
afternoon without bail to the criminal
court. Pike is a phrenologist and also
spiritualist, and is about 57 years old.
Death of Lewis Hies From Excitement.
Boston, March 16. A fire inCadman's
building adjoining the American House,
caused a loss of $30,000.
Lewis Rice, proprietor ef the American
Horse, died of heart disease, superinduced
by excitement.

From the Upper Mlseisispplan, Dec. 19, 1844,
History of the Early Proceedings and
Organization of Rock Island
Cotmty.
In 1833, the legislature passed an act
declaring that all the territory embraced
within the following boundaries, viz
Commencing in the middle of the channe
of the Mississippi river, on the north line
of toweshin 15 noith, and west of the
fourth principal meridian, thence runbinj
eastwardly on said line to the fourth pnn
cipal meridian, thence north to the middle
of the channel of Rock river, thense up
the middle of said channel to the Marias
d'Ogee Slough; thence along the middle
of said slough to the middle of the channel
of the Mississippi river; thence down alcng
the middle 'of eaid channel to the place ot
beginuing, should be erected into a county
to be known by the name of Rock Island
In pursuance ot the provisions of said
act. due notice was given to the legal
voters of said county, to meet at the house
of John Barrell, hsqr.,in larnhamsburg
(where J-aines Copp resides) on Monday
the 5th day of July, 1833, to elect three
county nommissioners, one sheriff, one
coroner, three justices of the peace, and
three constables.
Accordingly they met on said day and
organized by choosing Joseph Danforth,
Esqr., Joel Wells, Sen. Esqr., and Wm. II.
Sims, judges, and the Hon. Joseph Con
way and W. Thompson, clerks-
Joel Thompson, Esq., gave the first vote.
There were 65 votes given. Of these

BSf It is really surprising that two of
Molino's wealthiest citizens should have
plans laid for a donation, that their plans
should comprehend the same obiect and
be matured so nearly at the same moment
Mr. Wheelock, however, is ahead this time,
but there are other objects woich Mr
A.I-
xvtKinson can lavisn Lis generosity upon
and it will be appreciated, even if th
congresssional appropriation for the water
power did fail to pass.
JBSrlhe lurner society or this city
have about 600 volumes of books in the
lierman language, and their committee
on library have ordered, and expect in a
few days. 400 volumes more, making in
all a library of 1,000 volumes. The Ger
man element of Moline is among the best
of our citizens and it is a noticeable fact
that education is considered a necessary
standard to solidity. There is no better
informed class of men anywhere than the
Germans of Moline.
EST" Mr. Wheelock must feel bored to
death oyer the assumed interpretation of
his object in presenting the library build
ing to the city. The fact of the case is
that he concluded to do as he did from
motives of disinterested generosity. He
is and always has been one of the most
public spirited men in Moline, and on
more than one occasion has voluntarily
made donations in a quiet unostentatious
manner, which, to this day, outside of the
parties directly interested, are unknown.
The most ridiculously absurd idea of all
the assumed reasons for his gift is the
egotistical presumption of the Union that
he was influenced by an article in tha
paper, as if anybody ever was guilty of
such an act of insanity as to be governed
by its opinioos. "Cheek !"

Fatal Accident Flood, etc
Council Bluffs, Iowa, March 10.
Harrison B. Nichols, of Denver, a railroad
man well known in connection with wes
tern ruining interests, was run over and
killed in this city yesterday by a runaway
team.
An ice gorge has formed in the Mis
souri river a short distance north of this
citv and considerable damage to property
is anticipated. Already the adiacent terri
tory is Kubuierjted aud a number of light
river crafts sunk or swept away in the
flood.
Omaha, March 16. The Missouri river
is just now full ot floating ice. the result ot
the recent cold suap, and an immense ice
gorge has formed in the big bend in a
northeasterly direction from the smelting
works causing the stream to rise at that
point and overflow the bottoms on the Iowa
side for over a quarter of amile opposite the
smelting works, the water pours down
over the Iowa bank into the mam channel
forminu a series of falls from four to six
feet in height and over two hundred in
number. At one place, the southernmost
point, the fall is forty to sixty feet wide
and about six feet high. This cut-off is
wlut has been expected tor several years,
it having been an undisputed fact that it
must come sooner or later. Frozen ground
may prevent a channel forming or the
gorge may break too soon, but it will ulti
mately be made.

Sweeney, whose name was associated with

against him all proceedings civil and
criminal so far as arresting him should be
suspended during the trial and for 30
days afterward. The trial is Bet down for

Political Murders.
A brutal murder was committed in In
diana the other day by a lot ot drunken
Republican roughs, that would have been
heralded far aod wide over the land with
black lettered head lines if it had occurred
in Louisiana. But the Republican papers
do Dot seem to have heard of this political
outrage, aod when their attention is called
to it will doubtless excuse it as a drunken
row. The following report from the Cin
cinnati Gazette will probably be accepted as
truthful, by Republicans at least:
GusEssBORoroH.Ind., March 12 Last Monday
night, after the presidential contest was known to
have been decided in favor of Hayes and Wheeler,
some of the Republican concluded that a little jol
lification was in order, and accordingly fired a sa
lute i 1S5 rounds. After thesalnte had been fired,
son e of the more enthusiastic of the party couM see
nothing worthy their attention except a large roos
ter which the Democrats had painted and put upon
their neaaquariers on me west siae 01 tne equare.
i Ins they determined to nave.
It would seem as thongh the Democrats anticipa
ted an attack on their fowl, and staiioned eight or
ten men on the roof of the building, and two or
three in the room, armed with revolvers, brick bats,
etc., to defend the emblem of their victory over
Harrison, and when the Republican boys stormed
the fort, expec'ing to capture the thing with ease,
they met with such a shower of bullets and bats as
to cause tnem to oeat an ignomiuous retreat. They
rallied, however, and soon cleared the roof and car
ried off the much coveted prize.
For this folly one poor fellow has surrendered his
life, and another is now nnder arrest charged with
manslaughter. Fred. Chance died this morning
from the effect of Injuries sustained while defend
ing the rooster, and Hi. Clark, of the assaulting par
ty, nas Decn arresiea, cnargei with inmcuiig tne
injuries.
What is the difference between this and
the worst of the political riots in the
southern states ? Yet the Republican
press will be very quick to resent the in
justice ot holding that party responsible
for this outrage. At the same time the
murder of a Mr. WTebber in Louisiana.
last week, wholly unconnected with politics
as far as all the evidence so Jfar received
shows, is paraded as a political crime for
which the Democratic party of that state is
responsible. Perhaps a little consideration
of this Indiana outrage will enable them
to understand that there is no such thing
as a political murder, and that the crimes
of individuals should not be fastened upon
whole parties.
