Babbitt's Best Soap has to be sent regularly to meet the needs of them selves and friends. ThU Preparation contains no narcotic or Injurious drug. Nor la It a quack nostrum, recom mended tor every disease; but for such diseases as are here enumerated, viz: for Dis eaues of the Bladder, all Diseases of the Organs, weakness, Ac, whether In male or female, no matter of how long; standing. It allays pain and Inflammation, which other remedies Invariably cause, and la pleasant to the taste. It Is gratifying to the proprietor of these medi cines to be able to state that it in now nearly 80 years since they were first Introduced; during which time the have been extensively used In various parts of the United States, and have given to patient and practitioner the highest degree of satisfaction In the various cases in which they bave been employed; whether In town or conntry , hospital, or private practice, they have invariably given the most decided and unequivocal satisfac tion, and produced the most salutary and beneficial effects Numerous letters have been received from omo of the most distinguished Physiclaos in the country, and from the Professors of several Med leal Colleges, all recommending in the highest terms, the value of these medicines, and their su periorlty over other preprations for such com plaints as the proprietor recommends. These medicines require considerable care In the preparation, and the employment of different menstrua in successive operations to take up the extractive matters, and In consequence are raot frequently Improperly made, and not unfrequently much impaired, if not rendered totally inert by injudicious and unskilful management of those unacquainted with pharmnceutical preparations, Numerous preparations of Sarsiparilla and of Buchu, and varioas modes of preparing them bave been given, all of which, of course, will differ according to the mode of preparation which each Individual may adopt. It is, therefore, of the highest consideration and importance to the pub lic and to the faculty that there should be standard preparations of uniform strength, and possessing the most advantage. To effect this, and obviate the Inconveniences alluded to, I have made a number of experiments to ascertain the most effectual means of extracting the virtues of Sar aparilla and the Bucba, and to discover the most eligible form for their exhibition. The experi ments have resulted most favorably, and It is with much pleasure I now offer to the public and the faculty my Compound Fluid Extracts, which contain all the virtues of the medicines, and are the most active preparations of either which can be made. Two tabU'spoousful of the Extract of Zarsapa- rllla, added to a pint of water, is epnal to the Lis bon Diet Drink, and one bottle is fully equal to a gallon of the Syrup of Sarsaparilla, or the Decoc tion, as usually made.

Davenport is ahead of us in charitable institutions, tor which that city and its people deserve much credit. X.. Bock, the Humbug, Swindler and Dead-Beat. Our readers well remember a fellow named J. L. Rock, who passed himself off, in this city, about a year ago, as commer cial editor, etc., of the Chicago Times, and his subsequent exposure in these columns, in a letter from Mr. Storey, of the Times. Last week Thursday the fellow, with his woman, arrived at the Rock Island House, and registered as "R. L. James & Wife, St. Louis." After dinner he sauntered into the saloon and the bar keeper recog nized him as the J. L. llock. ot a year ago. lie left the saloon as quick as he could without exciting suspicion and took his woman and got on the west side of the Mississippi as quick as possible, leaving his hotel bill unpaid. How are jou "J. L Rock?" Rather Hough on the Supervisor. At the.late meeting of the supervisors the voting places for this town, in April, were made the same as at the Novem ber election, viz: in each ward, and at the cemetery school house. This was in accordance with a petition signed by about one hundred and forty voters in the city, who, very properly, want to save time to the people by enabling them to vote near their boms and without any delay. The petitioners also asked that the place for doing town business be changed from the cemetery aclool house to the court house, aud the board of superyisors decided that they had nothing to do with that matter, and for this action the Union stigmatizes the members of the board as "wiseacres." This is pretty rough on the board, and is not justified by the facts. Webster gives the following definition of "wiseacre:" One who makes nndue pretension to wisdom ; a would-be wise person ; hence, in contempt, a sim pleton; a ounce. If the Union will examine the Revised Statutes it will learn that "town meetings shall be held at such place in their respec tive towns as the electors thereof shall from time to time appoint." It is thus quite plain that the people alone have the right and power to decide where their meetings shall be held, i. e. the meeting at which the town clerk must be present and at which the miscellaneous town business must be transacted. And it is, therefore, plain that the Union applied a very unjust epithet to the whole board. In December, 1875, Supervisor Case got a resolution through the board fixing the cemetery school house as the place to transact town business. The place had previously been at the court house, and no power could legally remove it, except by a vote ot the people, in accordance with law. The moving it out there was an illega' and unauthorized act, and the town clerk would now have a right to ignore previous action and call it at the court house if he has a mind to do so. But perhaps that would not be best it might look like the exercise of arbitrary power, though we haye no doubt that such action would be legal. At the March term, in 187b, a petition was presented from 78 voters, outside of the city to sustain Case's action, and by 51 voters, also outside the city, asking to Private Meeting of the New Council. At the request of Mayor Butlor, the new council held an informal and private meet iog at the city council rooms Iat evening the object being to discuss the qualifr j cation?) and fitness of the various candidates for city officers who have presented them selves during the past few days. Unlike the meeting of one year ago, this meeting is said to have been entirely harmonious the best of feeling prevailing. No one attempted to draw narty lines, and all ap peared to have the interest of the city at heart, all desiring the appointment of honest, sober and competent men to the various positions.regardlessof their political opinions. It has been known for several days past that Deputy Marshal Miller and Police man Rogers would not accept their positions on the police force again if re appointed, as both had secured positions in a more lucrative business. When Mayor Butler was informed of this fact he ex pressed himself as beiog sorry that they would not remain on the force and said ioth had given entire satisfaction and roven themselves to bo efficient officers. which is undoubtedly the case.

E. church, in Daven port, are considerably excited over a little trubble in de church, which occurred there on last Sunday evening, Rev.

The charge of embezzling against Charles Schorpp was withdrawn yesterday afternoon, he having compromised his theft with the St. Booifacious Society, by giving bis note with good security, the amount ($100) to be paid in two years. Schorpp was therefore discharged by Jus tice Piokley. This morning Marshal Ilawes and Coo stable Ankrum went to Milan and arrested a man named George Palmer, working iu Weaver's blacksmith shop there for the past three months, and who is wanted in Brook ville, Jefferson county, Pa., where, it is said, he committed a bold robbery in company with two other men, some timej last summer. The three were arrested, but at the trial they testified falsely and bribed witnesses to "swear them out," and they were acquitted. Palmer's two friends were afterward arrested and sent to the penitentiary for perjury, and now Palmer is wanted there for the offense, lie was taken before Justice Ilayden who held him in $500 bonds to await a requi sition from the governor ot Pennsylvania upon the governor of this state. Failing to give security he was sent to jail. His arrest does not appear to trouble him any. Frank Woods, who has been in jail for several weeks past for stealing a watch Irom a 8n of bridge-tender Gray, was released this morning, his term of impris onment having expired. He should now try to live a more honorable life than he has for the past year and leave whisky alone. John Gibson, the young rough, in jail for assaulting a peaceable German, was released last evening, his mother becoming security, before Justice Ilayden, tor the amount ot his tine and costs. -The examination of Ike Dixon, chanted with a-sault upon James Perkins, with intent to commit murder, came off before Justice Pinkley this forenoon and resulted in his being held in $1,000 bonds for his appearance at the next term ot circuit court. Uf course he could not eive secu rity and was returned to jail. This is the shooting affray which occurred in the lower part of the city a few weeks ago. State's Attorney Parmenter appeared for the people. Dixon had no attorney. Printing, Binding and Blank-Book work specialities at The Aegus Office. No pains will be spared to please customers. have the town business transacted at the old place the court house; but the board did nothing in the matter, and so our last April meeting was held out there. At the present March term about 140 persons in the city petitioned to have the town business returned to the court house and the board decided that it had no right to mterfere in the matter,which, no doubt, was correct. But if the last board had power to move the place the present one has power to move it back. We suppose the fact is that neither had any power over the matter and that the removal was il- egal. As to the place, we think the cemetery school house, or some place outside the city, is much the best place for everything connected with town affairs. It is the peo ple who live outside the city who are in terested in highway commissioners, over seers of highways, and other town matters. Of course the people in the city as well as out are interested in the improvement of roads and bridges. But to be obliged to carry all the ballot boxes out there to count the votes is not very pleasant But even that wont do any serious injury. If the people of the city are so very anxious to have a change they have only to go out there and sit up with them all night and vote to hold the next meeting at the court house. Everybody in town and city has a j right to vote there on questions before the town meeting when transacting town busi ness, but they can vote for officers only in their own districts. The supervisor and town clerk should furnish a ballot box at each ward, and the people who are present at the hour of opening the polls will choose a moderator and clerk all the officers needed, and they must,after the polls close deliver the boxes to the board in session at the cemetery school house. We understand that a petition is in cir culation asking the clerk to include in the the election call a notice to vote on the question of place to do the town business. Of course there is no law against this but it is not the mode provided by the stat ute. That mode is by a rising vote, or by dividiug the house, or in some such man ner deciding a motion on the subject made in town meeting. But. as the place for town meetings was never legally fixed at any place except at the court house, and as it has never been legally moved from there, it is quite likely that the next town clerk, in his election notice, would be gov erned by the voice of tho people of the town as expressed through the ballot box' Hut Bock Island Talcs a. Back Beat? It looks a good deal that way. Hock sland built the first gas works, had the first macadamized streets, secured the first railroad, established the first daily newspaper, had the first power press, built the first street railroad, established the first water works, and has generally been ahead of its neighbors in public matters. It is manifestly falling behind. Davenport has its Qne Opera House, us Academy lor 1 ouuk Ladies, its Academy of Sciences, its Mercy Hospital, its Home for Fallen Women, and is gener ally ahead of Rock Island in public and charitable matters. And Moliue. too, is 'way ahead in the matter of public lec tures and public library building and fine school and church buildings. Do tho people of Rock Island intend to remain in this condition? or will they awake and get up alongside of their neighbors? It is for them to say. If Rock Islanderi don't want to remain in this behind-the- age condition, the first thing for them to do is to aid in securing a first-class opera house. The Burtis Opera House has done more to give character and good name to Davenport than any other one thing. Of course it was a bad investment for Dr. Burtis. It has never paid him interest on the investment but it has been a big tnmg tor the town, vv hy do we get no first-class entertainments? Because we have no place for them. People will not go to Dart's Hall. The stage is too small for any thiug; the scenery is ausgespielt; it is poorly lighted and ventilated, and has no modern mode of managing the light; the seats are horrid; the noisy stairway and slamming of doors and bare floors are a souroe ot continual annoyance to stage and audience; and in case of fire or panic it is positively dangerous. Can people be blamed for not going there? Can good companies be blamed for not coming here? Is it any wonder that our best citizens go out ot town for amusements and entertain ments? What is to be done? As an investment, an opera house won't pay. How, then, are we to secure one? Simply by the people giving some evidence that they want one. The property-holders and business men could well afford to give its cost to any good man who would build ono and manage it properly. They would be more than compensated by the increased value of their property and the increase of business. People who own property, and who have business places or dwellings to rent should consider this point. But they need not give the entire sum. They can secure a first-class house equal to Hooley's in Chicago, if they wil raise money enough to purchase a good site fcr it- If they don't care enough about it to do that, it is uot likely that we shall have a good house. There would be no money in it, to the man who may build and run it but we think the house can bo secured iu that way. How is that to be done? What is everybody's business is nobody's business, and who is to start it? We suggest to the young gentlemen of the Athletic Club to take hold of the matter and call on our property-holding citizens and business men and sec what can be done. Either that, or let the property holders and busi ness men get together and decide for themselves what to do. We suggest the club beeause it is one of our public organ izations and can easily appoint a commit tee to attend to the matter of raising funds and securing the site, and negotia tion with the gentleman who may be induced to build the house.
