HELIIBOLD'S
Compound Fluid Extract
OF BUCHU.
Tlil Preparation contains no narcotic or Injurious
drug. Nor la It quack nostrum, recom
mended for every disease ; but for such
diseases aa are here enumerated, viz: for Dis
eases of the Bladder, all Diseases of the Organs,
weakness, Jtc, whotber 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 U gratifying to the proprietor of these medi-
clnes to be able to state that It Is now nearly SO
years since they were first Introduced; during
which time the have been extensively need 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 moot decided and unequivocal satisfac
tlon, and produced the most salutary and benetlcls
effects. 'NumeroBi letters have been received from
ome of the most distinguished Physicians 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 so
periorlty over other preparations for such com
plaints as the proprietor I ecommends., ,
These medicines require considerable care in
the preparation, and tho employment of different
menstrua in successive operations to toko up the
extractive matters, and In consequence are most
frequently improperly made, and not unfrequontly
much Impaired, if not rendered totally inert by
injudicious and unskilful management of those
nnacqnalnted with pharmaceutical preparations.
Numerous preparations of Sarstparllla and of
Bnchn, and various mode 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 thai 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 or extracting the virtues of Sar
Biparllla and the Buchu, and to dli'dnver the most
eligible form for their exhibition. The experi
ment have resulted most favorably, and It is with
much pieasnre I now offer to the public and the
faculty my Compound Fluid Extract, which
contain all the virtues of the medicines, and are
the most active preparations of cither which can be
made.
Two tablcspoonsful of the Extract of Zarsapa
rllla, added to a pint of water, 1 epual to the Lis
bon Diet Drink, and one bottle is fully equal to a
gallon of tha Syrup of Sarsaparilla, or the Decoc
tion, as usually made.

Tke Lumber Prospects.
At the request of Davenport lumber
men, a meeting of saw mill owners of this
yicioity was held in Davenport yesterday
afternoon, the object of the meeting being
to take necessary steps toward advancing
the price of luoibcr. Owing to the ab
aci c J of Mr. J. S. Keator, of Moline,
nothing definite was done, but it was de
cided f iat the price ought to be raised.aDd
several of the mills will do so.
Mr. Weyerhaaser, of Weycrltauser &
Denkman's miil. was interviewed this fore
noon, lie stated that the lumber pros
pect was duller than ever before; that
tha rivers above were all falling again ; no
logs could be floated out; and that there
ere not enough logs out to run the mills
on the Mississippi three weeks longer.
For the past week all the mills in this
vicinity, and also all tdong the river, have
only been runnine with half a force of
men. The Stillwater Messenger and Mr,
Weycrhauser's private correspondent re
port that there is no prospect for the usual
June rise, and everything looks discour
aging. Mr. V will leave on Monday to attend
a special meeting of the Mississippi Log
ging Co., to be held in the company's
office at Beef Slough on the 18th.
A despatch from above says:
The water in the St. Croix and its
tributaries is falling fast. The amount of
logs in the main boom from the late rise is
15,000,000 feet, and the amount below the
boom 3,000,000 feet. The boom started
on May 25th, turning out 1,500,000 feet a
day. A few log are runnimr into the
boom from the Yellow, Clam, Nameacoy
gin, Tamarac, Kettle and Wood rivers.
The river has declined three feet at Tay
lor's Falls, and is falling rapidly. But a
few more logs can reach the boom on the
present rue. The drives on all streams
are uncertain, unless we get more rain.
Fair short logs are selling at ?8, loose,
below tLe Loom.
It is to be hoped that our mills will pro
cure enough logs to enable them to run
the balance of the season for to shut
down during the coming month would be
a great misfortune to a large force of la
borers.
A Point on Which the "Doctors Agree.
Physician who have tested Hostettcr's
Stomach Bitters concur iu representing it
to be an eminently safe stimulant, fur pref
erable to the ordinary liquors of commerce,
not only because it is medicated, but be
cause it is infinitely pure. Its alcoholic
basis is the finest old rye, and this is tem
pered and rendered medicinal by the cura
tive ingredients of botanic origin which it
holds in solution. It has often, been imi
tated, but never rivalled, and is to-day .'J30
leading tonic, diuretic and aperient cf
America. Malarial fevers are prevented
and remedied by it, and it is a thoroughly
reliable medicine In cases of dyspepsia.

gout, nervousness, urinary and uterine

HEALTH COMMISSIONERS.
What are They Going-to Do?
The city council, at. it 3 last meeting.
ppointed four gentlemen as health com
missioners. JNow what are these tour men
going todo? In accepting the appointment
they have tacitly agreed to perform the
duties of the office, and furthermore, by
accepting they, in fact, claim the knowl
edge and ability to perform all the duties
of their office, They are judges of the
aw in all matters that appertain to their
duties and the execution ot the same.
They possess all the police authority that
is by law and custom guaranteed to the
city. Will not the public, if these state
ments be true, hold them responsible for
whatever serious results may come from
any negligence of duty or incompetenco on
their part.. The medical fraternity agree
that one-third of all deaths are from the
diseases which belong to the preventable
causes; most of the zymotic (epidemic and
contagious) are preventable, and many are
filth disease, so called. To guard against
those seems to be understood to be the
duty of these gentlemen. In 1869 the
citizens association of New York city, said
"The daily records of the medical gen
tlemen who have carried cn the work of
sanitary inspection are full of testimony to
the fact that tho prevalence of lever
(typhoid and typhus), small-pox, infantile
diarrhoea and dysentery, with excessive
sickness and death-rates, are invariably
found associated with certain well-defined
and local conditions."
The correction of any such dangerous lo
cal conditions in this city belongs to the
four gentlemen whom the council has
named. They claim to be capable, wil
they do it? Dr. Rush one of the keenest
of observers wrote that the means of pre-
ventiog pestilential fevers is as much
under the power of human reason and in
dustry as the means of preventing ths
evils of ligKtning or common fire. So
satisfied was he of the truth of this opin
ion that he looked tor the time when our
courts of law should punish cities and vil
lages for permitting any of the sources of
bilious or malignant fever to exist within
their jurisdiction; and, we believe, it was
Florence Nightingale who taid there can
be no stronger condemnation of any town
than the outbreak of a fatal epidemic in it
Should there be one in this city, on whom
will the responsibility rest? What do
these gentlemen say to that' well defined
principle of law that whoever accelerates
death causes it ? The public will expect
these four men to know how safely to
dispose of garbage and dead animals
how to control gas companies sufficiently
. . i f a
to prevent tnem irom poisoning the air
and soil; to teach practical plumbers how
to make traps that will not permit the
sewer gases to escape ioto the bath-rooms
and chambers; and drain builders to allow
descent enough in their drains to carry
off the water; and sewer buildings to have
them so tight and with fall enough to pre
vent the escape of gas and carry off the
feculence that comes often back in airy
forms into our noses. The f tnelis of
city are not only disgusting, they are pois
onous. "The public health is

to the hands of these gentl men
together with tho city council is entruste

co-operate in this work -and it should be
begun at once. To all we commend th

Female Hospital, who eays:

Card from Marshal Jauuiags &f Davei

Marshal Jcnniugs, of Davenport, will
publish in the Democrat of this evening,
the following card. Mr. Jennings also
requests its publication in The Argus,
together with tho eubjoined " note from
Justice Blojd.
Editor Democrat:
Deau Sir; I feel called on to contradict
an untruth'.u! statement, which appeared
in the R. L Uiuon, of June 5th. I pro
nounce the whole matter & fabrication and
a yery lame get-up to viudicate any thing
or asy person. And the chap who has
produced the yarn must certainly get the
oredit of possessing a flexible memory,
something on the India rubber style
something capable of an undue exteusion.
and a strong memory, with a vivid recollec
tion of remembering things and matters
that never occurred or never shall, 1 be
lieve, as every truthful person does, that
the only - possible mode of arriving
at the truth in kny caaefs by telling the
truth and the whole truth, which has not
been done in the article in the Union
The suit of $100, as gotten up against me
by Messrs. Lundy & Coyne, has been with
drawn by their own counsel, the plaintiffs
paying coat? accruing, which the signature
of C, Gf Blood, P. M., will amply testify,
a true copy of which is annexed hereto.
I now emphatically state that I had not
the mcst remote idea of withdrawing said
suit, even if it could be attained by
the payment of a solitary Dickie. I be
lieve I performed an honest duty in vin
dicating one of onr city ordinances, and
will do so again if the case presents itself.
This circuitous movement, trying to bolster
up a case, the merits of which the public
can iudge, is utterly futile and only dis
plays the weakness ot the cause it seeks
to uphold.
I uow ask your forbearance for this
sg'.by statement, Mr. Editor, but know-
yo to be a voucher for truth, I re-
i Jt,up, yours respectfully.
