The young ladies of the First Baptist church wili give a sociable in the lecture room of said church Tuesday evening, April 10th, 1877, All are invited. 3U Every college student knows something of the fifth proposition of the first book of Euclid, known as the pons asinorum, or bridge of jackasses. That bridge is crossed everyday by all families that neg- ect to use li. T. Babbitt s best soap. HELHBOLD'8 Compound Fluid Extract OF BUCHTJ. This Preparation contains no narcotic or injurious drag. Nor - to It a quack nostrum, recom mended for ' every , disease ; bat for such disease 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 Inflammation, which other remedies Invariably cause, and Is pleasant to the taste. It Is gratifying to the proprietor of these medl clnes to be able to state that It Is now nearly 90 years since they were first . Introduced ; during which time they have been extensively nsed 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 been employed : whether in town or country , 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 some of the most distinguished Physicians In the country, and from the Professors of several Med leal College, all recommending In the highest terms, the value of these medicines, and their su perlorlty over other preparations 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 moot frequently Improperly made, and not unfrequently much impaired, if not rendered totally Inert by Injudicious and unskilful management of those unacquainted with pharmaceutical preparations, antnerous preparations of Sarsapartlla and of Buchu, and various 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 and to the faculty that there should be standard preparations of uniform strength, and possessing the most advantage. To effect thin, 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 saparlllaand the Buchu, 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 tablespoonsful of the Extract of Zarsapa rilla. added to a pint of water, is etrosl to the Lis bon Diet Prink, and one bottle is fully equal to a gullou of the Syrup of SarsaparUla, or the Decoc tion, as usually made. An Age of Competition. In this day of the world competition is active in the extreme. But in the long run it's the best which wins the prize of public pre ference in spite of all the deceits used to bolster up weak articles. For this reason Doooley's Yeast Powder is recognized as the highest possible achievement in bak ing powder. Charley Gray'a Estate. The work done by this office for Charley (j ray s estate was ordered by Messrs, Sitnonson & Stoddard, of Port Byron. The charge is a reasonable one for the work done, and it is a matter of entire in difference to The Arqus E'rintinq Com pany whether old Gayer allows it or not. The parties who ordered the vrork are good for the amount. 2dwtf. Kiver News. The Red Wing came up from St. Louis yesterday forenoon, and after taking on considerable freight, left for La Crosse.

Mr. Fred Weyerhauser returned from Washington on Saturday evening, where he had been for some time past looking after the interests of the Mississippi River Logging Co., of which he is president An account of his business there was given in Friday's and Saturday's Argus. Henry Kirkpatrick, a former Argus boy, but for some time past pressman on the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal is in the city on a visit. The City Bridge at Milan. Justice Hayden spent Sunday in Milan, and on his return to the city, this morn ing, hi "interviewed" the workmen en gaged on the temporary bridge now being constructed between Yandruffs and Lower Wells's Islands, near South Rock Islandt in place of the new iron bridge which was carried away last week, and was told that the frame structure which they are at work on will be ready to cross on Wed nesday afternoon sure. Davenport City Election, - At the city election in Davenport, on Saturday 3.110 votes were polled on mayor and 3,125 on wharf-master: all the other candidates run between 3,000 and 3,100. The officers elected are as follows: ' . " Majority. Mayor T.T. Dow. Republican.... ...414 Treasurer K. meats- Liberal .....Ki3 Clerk J. G. Tnerk, Republican 493 Marshal B. J.

Sears, Independent 49 Formerly the marshal was collector of taxes a singular name for such an officer but last year the council so changed things that the marshal is now chief of police, as he should be, and the collector of taxes is & separate office and filled by the council. The chief of police should also be filled by the council, or appointed by the mayor, as is done hero. A good collector of taxes is never popular after one term, and the people who are urged to pay their taxes will vote against such a man. And on the marshal or chief of police, while the mass of people on both sides vote for their party nominee, the roughs, rowdies and criminal and danger ous classes will pretty generally vote against a man who has done his duty as police officer. r For that reason this officer should be appointed by the mayor or council. In no other way can they be as cer tain of a faithful and fearless and inde pendent officer. The Gazette says: The defeat of the Republican candidate for marshal might have been expected The council committed the folly of mak ing the chief of police for such the mar shal is to be the coming year) an elective officer; and John martens bad been po liceman six years and chief of police four years. When he was nominated for the marsualsbip every rough, every scamp arrested by the police, every rascal Mar tens had hunted down? every person ar rested for keeping a disorderly house, re solved to do his best to beat him and they did it. lnisisthe truth, and it is not said to cast any reflection on Mr. Jen nines; it was something he could not help. but it helped him amazingly. The classes referred to knew that he never had a sin gle hour's experience as policeman he had never throw a straw in their way and fhat he had cot to learn not only how to catch them himself, but that he was ignor ant of every method by which the chief ol police organizes his force to bring them to justice. V e hope, however, that Mr. Jen nings will prove efficient in bis new posi lion and let those scamps who helped lect him know that they have "caught a barter," after all; but to do this he must have experienced policemen on his force.

Last week Ex-Alderman Daly became a grandfather and it is a noticeable fact that the child is of the fifth generation living. Mr. Daly's grandmother, and his father and mother are still living, in Ireland as we are informed by him. The mother of this child, Mrs. Thomas Green, was the first child baptized in Rock Island by the first resident Catholic priest Father Alleman, now Lead. The little Miss Green has a grandmother, a great grand mother, and a great" great grandmother living. Dr. Plummer pronounces it a first class baby. The Ferry Boat Keokuk.. The ferry company has chartered the ferry boat Keokuk, of Quincy, and she will take the place of the ferry boat Rock Island, which will be placed on the ways at the boat yard.be dried out, and receive sl thorough overhauling. The Keokuk is built on nearly the same plan as the Rock Island,but has only one large centre wheel, and will carry 30 teams. She arrived here on Sunday morning. The U. S. Inspectors of steamboats, Messrs. Girdon and McMurchy, of Gale na, are expected to arrive bere to-day or to-morrow to inspect the hull and boilers of the Keokuk, and as soon as this is done, and everything is safe and satisfactory, she will go to work. to One of our most estimable citizens may be thankful for the introduction of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup, for its timely use has saved his life.

The young girls of Trinity Guild intend t- , giving an entertainment oi uncommonly attractive features, with a programme not only novel and peculiar, but marked in its variety and interest. The actors and performers who take nart are all amateurs of this city, well known socially but, for the most part, now making their first appearance before an audience. The net avails of the effort are for founding a fund to purchase a large organ for their church. The programme opens with a chorus by the Guild; to be followed by a beautiful little drama, arranged by a young lady oi Rock Island, from Longfellow's "Court ship of Miles Standish," (by the way John Alden. a well known young gentleman, of this city, is here taking his first lesson in love) and will embrace also choice se- ections by two quartette clubs and by a ady of acknowledged musical cultivation and taste, and duet by a soprano and tenor. An interesting feature will be the "AT- der Symphonic" by thej young ladies, as sisted by a detachment of recruits from the boys. lhe evening will conclude with an amusing and laughable play, entitled "The two T, J's." by half a dozen ladies and gentlemen. lhe interest in the enterprise is very general and pronounced and it seems to be matter of regret that only one representa tion is intended.

It is also probable that Mr. J, A. Kuck has some files ot the early newspapers of Moline and of the beginning of the Union. His address is Kuckville, Orleans Co., N. Y.

' That's the question which Mrs. John Schmidt, living on Fourtee.ti-and-a-half street, would like to have answered. On Monday, the 2nd, ber husband, John Schmidt, a stone mason, generally employ ed by Julius Strahle. was on a spree, and in the evening, when he sobered op, he told his wite that he was a nuisance to everybody and that he intended to com mit suicide. For this purpose he procured his razor, but his wife succeeded in getting it away from him before he could iDflict any injury upon himself, lie said that he intended to go to some place where he was not known, and would then take his life. Or Tuesday morning, during the absence of his wife, he packed up all his clothes and left,and sinco that time his wife has not seen or heard from him, and thinks he has gone to some strange place and com mitedj suicide. Schmidt is a man about 40 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches in height, dark hair, has no beard, and has a pale face. He leaves his wife and three chil dren in poor circumstances. Removal. G. A. Doellinger has moved his immense stock of furniture to his old quarters, lately occupied by Kroger & Freytag, in Palace Row, 1006, 1008, 1010. Second Avenue, between 15th and 16th streets. New goods are arriving daily, bought for cash. His stock excels every thing ever seen, either in Rock Island or Davenport, 'iu variety, designs, quality and prices of goods. Parties buying East, will find it a great advantage, to examine bis goods and prices before going elsewhere, and by buying of him, having the benefit to buy of a responsible firm at home, that guarantees its goods to be second to none iu the United States, that holds itself re sponsible for whatever fault with the goods. The goods are exclusively the latest styles, and will be sold for cash, at rock bottom figures according to the times. No trouble so show goods, 2d6t-w2t POLIPJij COURT. Monday, Apvd 8.
