GENUINE PREPARATIONS HELMBOLD'S Compound Fluid Extract OF BUCHU. Thli Preparation contains no narcotic or injurious drug. Nor la It a quack nostrum, recom mended for every disease; but for such diseases as are here enumerated, viz: for Dis eases 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 lullammation, 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 Is now nearly 3' years since they were first Introduced; during which time they 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 have ben employed; whether In town or country, hospital, or private practice, they have invariably given the moot decided and unequivocal satisfac tion, and produced the most salutary aud benofliisl effects. Numerous lettera have been received from some of the most distinguished Physicians in the country, and from the Professors of several Med ical Colleges, all recommending in the highest terms, the value of these medicines, and their u periorlty over other preparations for such conv 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 most frequently Improperly made, and not unfrequently much Impaired, if not rendered totally inert by Injudicious and unskilful manament of those unacquainted with pharuuiceutlcal preparations. Numerous preparations' of Sarsipnrilla and of Buchu, and varlo is modes of preparing them have 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 aud to the faculty that there should be staudard 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 or extracting the virtues of Sar saparllla and the Buchu, utid 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 eon U lu all the virtues of the medicines, and are the most active preparations of either which can be made. Two tablespoonsfnl of the Extract of Zarsapa rilla, added to a pint of water, is epual to the Lis bon Diet Drink, and one bottle is fully equal to a trillion of the Syrup of Sarsaparilla, or the Decoc tion, as usually made. HELMBOLD'S Compound Fluid Extract OF SARSAPARILLA. For purifying the blood and removing all diseanes arising from excess of Mercury, chronic consti tutional diseases arising from an impure state oi the Blood, Ac, fcc. ; and Is especially recom mended for Scrofula, Tetter and Pimples on the Face, and all Scaly Eruptions of the Skin.

For the accommodation of those who go to the Abbott concert in Moline this even ing an extra coach will be attaohed to the regular St. Louis train, which leaves the St. Louis, Rock Island & Chicago depot at 7 o clock. 1 he train will stop at the cross ing opposite the Harper House and at the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific depot. A special train will run after the concert, Seven o'clock sharp is the hour of starting. Price of Gas Reduced. Our citizens will be glad to see that the new gas company will reduce the price of gas to $3 and charge nothing for meters! This ought to double the number of gas takers at once. Everybody should take gas now, if they want a good, safe, bril liant light and at a very low rate. We hope to see the number of gas consumers doubled, and the number of street lamps largely increased. Town Meeting. The town clerk has issued a call for the annual town meeting, and in the call pro vision is made for voting upon the question of place to do the town business, etc. This is done in accordance with Sec. 5 of Art VI, of the revised statutes, of 1874, on township organization, page 439 of Uross's Statutes. Those who wish to be posted should look up the section and read it: also Sec. 7 of Art. VII, same law, in rela tion to more than one voting place, and the manner of conducting the election. Personal. Mr. R. R. Cable left for Chicago last evening, and may go to New York before he. returns. Mr. B- II. Kimball now has a prominent positi m in the employ of the Moline Wag on Company, for which he is a very com petent man. Mr. Fred Hass returued from Cincin nati, Akron, Pittsburg, Detroit, and other places this morning, after a week's absence, looking after the interests of his large stove trade. The Peoria Democrat of this morning says: "Messrs. J. R. liilliard and James . Mahoncy went to Chicago last evening on business connected with the railroads in which they are interested." Mr. A. C. Smith, for the two years last past with Messrs. Bush & Littleton, of this city, departed yesterday afternoon tor tock Island, where he has accepted a re- nonsible position in ; a large book store May success attend him. Peoria Deo-crut.

The gentlemen named above arrived at the Harper House yesterday. They are the parties who recently purchased Mr. Harper's gas works and are organizing this new company to take the place of the old one. They intend some extensive im provements. Messrs. Garrison and B ir are registered as residents of New York, and we hear that Mr. Garrison is a son of Mr. C. K. Garrison, the wealthy railroad man. Messrs. Garrison and Baby left last evening. Mr. Watts is here to give his personal attention to the business. The River, the Ice, the Weather. On the 18th of February the ice broke up iu the Mississippi river opposite the citv and on the 21st it run out and we had a clear channel. On the 25th the first steamer of the sea son, the J. v . van&ant, arrived trom Montrose, and went on the "Ways" at our boat yard. On the 27th the steamer Viola arrived from LtClaire the first boat from above. March 9th mercury at zero and river nearly closed over. During that night the ice bridge became complete and the river effectually closed ; over with ice. The weather continued cold, and yesterday we had a heavy snow storm and last evening and this morning good sleighing, This afternoon the water rau down in big brooks, tho streets were muddy, and the ice had disappeared from the river nearly all melted away. The Case of Maj. Reno. The telegraphic report, in Tiie Argus of last evening, in relation to tho trial of Maj. Marcus A. Reuo, of the Seventh U. S. Cavalry, show him to be anything but fit for a command. Instead of being the father of that military family, at Fort Abercromlie, he was a sort ot bulldozer who domineered over those undor his command and insulted and tried to intimi date a woman whose husband was absent. He should be dismissed. The Mrs. Bell who was insulted by Reno was at the Harper House several days, a year ago last Bummer, waiting to meet her husband, Capt. Bell, who was expected from the east. She came down from St. Paul on a boat, and on the arrival of her husband she returned with him. She was much liked by the ladies at the hotel who made her acquaintance, and was regarded as a very exemplary and interesting lady, bhe was pretty, and attractive.but exceedingly circumspect and careful of her manners and associates. Maj. Reno's slanders and abuse deserve severe punishment. Some of our people think that this Maj. Reno is the same man who was quarter master here, in the early daya of the rebel prison here, during the late war, but that is a mistake. His name was R F. Reno, and be is now engaged in the grocery Dusinesa at Diarengo, Iowa, Edith, the Little FranA. 1 The Davenport Democrat says: "Edith O'Goiman is perambulating over this state, dealing out her oft-repeated, ! re-bashed, "horrible scenes within con vent walls, and how she effected her es cape from a nunnery. She recently lec- tured in Dubuque, and the Herald says ol her. "It is somewhat singular that with all the convents and religious institutions throughtout the country the only escapee, we have ever heard of were Maria Monk and Edith O'Gorman. Why don't others flee if they are so badly treated as those two women assert? The doors are open wide for all who choose to leave. The fact is those two women should never have been inside of a religious institution." And the Whiteside Times says; "We were somewhat disappointed in the weather taking the turn it did so as to prevent our wives from attending the lec ture the next day, (to be given to ladies only) as we were thinking that something might be said in the privacy of that lec ture that would explain why the hotel reg ister records the names of "Prof. Auffray, wife and maid," and why the so-called Miss Edith. O'Gorman (with a child ap parently about six months old) occupied the same room with the Prof. Now, if Miss Edith, as advertised, is not really Mrs. Auffray, then this is all Trong. And in case she is really his wife then why not advertise as such, and save the criticisms which any person of her intelligence can't help but kuow must necessarly follow in practicing such mauner deceit upon the public? Especially when she is, by her Own sayings, waging a direct war upon one of the strong sects of America." Our cotemporaries ought not to be sur prised it anything this excentric little body does. It is said that she once left Lafayette, Ind,, in a hurry, without paying Mr. C. C, Wright for the photographs she sells to her admirers, and that several hotels are the poorer for her company out, mat is a Dusiness matter we care nothing about. It is the fraud upon the public, in advertising herself as a Miss. when her baby proves that she is some thing else; the fraud in advertising herself as an "Escaped Nun" when she is not; the fraud in advertising that she will tell how she escaped and then not telling W hen we charged this fraud upon her agent he said: "O she don't pretend that she ever escaped from any locks, or bars or bolts, or doors, or gates,but she escaped in her mind from being a Catholic!" This, of course, was an admission of the fraud in advertising. We happen to have Jbeen a resident of Jersey City when Zeke Pangborn brought Edith before the public, She appeared first in Newark, and her abusive and false tirade so outraged the feeliugs of some of her audience that they j . . 1 j I x , uisiurueu ucr meeting. o violence was ottered her. bat a good many uncompli mentary things were said to her and of her and the meeting broke up in a row. Thie was exactly what she and Zeke wanted, tor they could then play the role of perse suted martyrs! which they did, quite successfully, thus humbugging many well- nseauing Protestants. Of course the peo ple who disturbed her meeting were very foolish in giving her thut advantage-but she has been pretty severely let alone since that time. Edith was too full of the world, the flesh and the devil to be con tent with the simple life and plain food of a Sister of C.iarity, and at that bewitching age when young women yearn for a mate she left the Sisters, turned lecturer, and pretended to have escaped from l 1 ' . , TT someoouy or sometning. uer false pretensions were once exposed by the C itholic priest at Paterson. N. J, in a letter published in the Jersey City Stand anl (which we read at the time) and sinot then no attention has been paid to her she can do no harm except to absorb a few Protestant greenbacks. But is it not a little remarkable that she makes no effort to save souls? It is green backs she wants. She exhibits no ioy over Christianity her forte is abuse. The pre cepts of Our Saviour receive no attention from her. To stir np strife and rake in the Protestant's cash is her occupation. And it is a lamentable fact that Protestants, iu- i stead of rejoicing that the Catholics are ! Christian people and are doing great good all over the world, are most happy when they hear Catholics maligned, villified and traduced. True, it is only abput 300 years since the first Prjtestact was discovered; while for 150!) years after Our Saviour was on earth the Catholics were the only Chris tians in the world. They are still the greatest Christian denomination and those who left them and formed Protestant or ganizations did so because they wanted to live contrary to the rules of the church, just as Edith does. The numerous Pro testant sects are bitter towards each other but they all agree in one thing they protest against the Catholics, the greatest Chris tian denomination on earth hence the name "Protestants." And wo regret to say that there are some Catholics equally prejudic ed and bigoted. There is too much partyism in religion as well as politics. But it seems strange to us that Protestants should be so unhappy because the Catholics ars doing such wonders in the way of reclaiming sinners, and lifting up the lowly, and helping the poor and the weak. They ought to be glad to see the Catholic Church so zealous in doing good and in following the example of our Divine Master. NOTES HERB AND THERE. Pleasant winter day. No police cases to-day. Going to the Abbott concert to-night? The March term of circuit court of Scott county commenced yesterday. The bursting of the "mud drum" at the Buford plow works on Monday made it necessary to Bhut'.down but eyerything was in full blast agaia yesterday. Busi ness is still very lively. Jauifs Bell, collector for Port Bvron. and J. H. Feaster, collector for Zuuia, have returned thtir books. The former collected $4,082,36 out of a tax levy of $4,540,09, and returned $458.60, as delin quent. The latter, out of a levy of $4, i 16,4"), collected $3,868,55, and returaed as delinquent $S47,90. The case of Mary Siniminsin, adminis tratrix of Lars Nelson, deceased, vs, the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific railroad company, in action of damages tor the loss f decedent's leg, while in the railroad company's employ, near the Missouri river in May, 1872, was tried last week for the third time in the circuit court of Shelby county Iowa and the jury returned a verdict in favor of plantiff for $5,000. Two or three years ago Fred Barnett was one of the best and most popular glass blowers employed at our glass factory but he commenced drinking hard; allow ed his family to suffer; and, at last, after many efforts on the part of friends to persuade him to live a sober life he was discharged from the factory. He left here last September (his wife and three child ren remaining) and proceeded to New York, stopping at several places in search of work. He finally wrote to his father in England for assistance, and his father sent him some money and a ticket from New York to Liverpool, and advised him to return to England. He spent all his money in New York for liquor, a"ad then his friends purchased him a suit of clothes and ut him on board a steamer bound for England, where be arrived safely and wnere he has remained in idleness ever since. His wife, an excellent woman, has been supported by Supervisor Aster since her husband left, and lately at her request he has been making preparations to send her back to England. Yesterdav he col lected enough money to buy her a cabin passage across the ocean from her hus band's old friends in the factory, and Mayor Butler, president ot the company, headed the lut with "a liberal subscription.

Gran, of Hamlet, was returning from visiting a patient, two miles west of there, he met a man on horseback who drew a pistol ami fired at him, at the same time exclaiming that "they diJti t want any more d d doctors in this country." The doctor was Dot in ured. Suspicion points strongly to a young man living four miles west of there, who had been visiting at Hamlet the same evening, and was intoxicated, brandishing a pistol about in an unhealthy way. The affair will be investigated. Sheriff Hetherington, of Mahaska county, Iowa, passed through this city from Indiana Monday night, with a Dr. Jones in charge. The Dr. raised a check or note from $41 to $4u7, an Oskaloosa bank cash ed it. and the Dr. lelt for parts unknown, lie tur:ied ur in the wrong place in the Hoosier state in a few months and was captured. The sheriff placed him in the Davenport jail for the night, and left for Oskalousa with him yesterday morning.

About Our County Newspaper Articles From the Monmouth Review. J. B. Dantorth. Jr., of The Argus, is writing up a history of the newspapers and newspaper men in Rock Island county.frtm the first establishment of a journal in that county down to the present tame. Ihe ar ticles are full of interest, and complete a chain of the early settlement of northern Illinois and the publication of the different journals that haye b'jen started in Rock Island, aud are perused with evident sat isfaction and profit by the large class cf readers of The Argus. Mr. Danforth is just the man for the work he has pet out to perform, having been connected with the press in his own county, at different times, since 1852. We first had the pleas ure of making his acquaintance in 1853 4, when we accidently "pied" an old Smith hand press on which the daily was worked by a lean, lank, rawboned six foot prairie rooster, who used some words more em phatic than polite when he saw the "stuf fin" of the only press in Rock Island lying around the floor. We would like to see his articles published in book form. Extract from a Private Letter. In after years, when the present genera tion have passed away, and you and I, Dear Colonel, will have gone to our reward, and the future news paper men and citizens of Rock Island couuty will thank you for your truthful, fearless and fair history, and hold you in grateful remembrance for furnishing them, at great pains and labor, these invaluable historical sketches.

Debility, whether it be inherent, or caused by overtaxed strength, or pro tracted illness, has a most depressing in fluence upon the miud. breeding an abject melancholy nearly akin to despair, and enforcing the abandonment of cherished projects and high hopes. Happily, the enfeebled system, even in extreme cases, is susceptible of iuvigoration. It is proved by incoutrovertible evidence that Hostet ter's Stomach Bitters is an unfailing strengthener of the weak, and that in ad dition to vitalizing the physical orgauiza tion it establishes regularity among those organs upon whose efficient discharge of the duties imposed ou them by nature, contiuued vigor and health depend. Thousands of instances might be cited to show the Iregencratiog influence of this health-giving agent in cases of debility, liver disease, dyspepsia, nervous ailments, constipation, intermittent fever, 'urinary and uterine troubles, gout and rheuma tism, and other maladies.
