It is gratifying to the proprietor of these medi
cines to be able to state that It Is now nearly 30
years since they were first introduced; during
which time thej 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 ttiey
have been employed : whether rn town or country ,
hospital, or private practice, they have invariably
given the most decided and unequivocal satisfac
tion, and produced the most salutary and bencficisl
effects. Numerous letters have been received from
tome of the most distiagulshed 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 su
periorlty over other preparations for such cora-
platuts as the proprietor lecommends.
These medicines require considerable care in
the preparation, and the employment of different

Board of Education.
There will be a Citizens Meeting this
evening at the Court House to select can
didates for the Board of Education. This
is as it should be. In the selection, the
choice should be made exclusively in the
interest of the schools and for the com
mon benefit of all. Anything like clique
or partisan movement should at once be
suppressed. Let the common consent of
our citizens make the choice simply and
olely upon the grounds of fitness for the
office and willingness to perform the
duties of the position intelligently and with
out prejudice either sectarian or religous.
It is not necessary to a proper under
standing of our position on this question
tnat 1HE A EG us snouid enter into a
lengthy discourse about the nature or ob
ject of our public schools. Schools are in
stituted by the state because it is thought
that an intelligent and somewhat culti
vated peoples are essential to the perma
nence of our form of government. They are
intended to be so orgauized that they shall
be of common benefit and objects of com
nnn interest, All classes are therefore
taxed lor their support. All are expected
to have a voice in the election of Bchool
officers, and all ought to feel interest
enough to participate in such elections. I
Everything not teudiog to the one object
of having good schools whouM be carefully
avoided. Upon this point hinges the
whole subject, and here is where The'
AltOUS stands. For this single purpose
we have always contended, and have ever
favored the election of good men who take
an especial interest in having good schools.
It is to such and such only that we would
entrust their charge and management.
Lei this evening's selection be made irre.
spective of any partizan feeling, let it be
done upon the broad basis of general in
terest and public welfare, let the candi
date be men of intelligence, public spirit,
and houcst friends of the schools, and we
hall give them hearty support. We don't
care a fig whether they are Democrats or
Republicans, so that they ar good men,
well qualified, fair minded, aud are ehoeep
and elected upon their raerits and for their
personal qualifications. But we do un
qualifiedly object to our schools being run
in the interests of party, or sectarianism,
or to their being made the instruments of
designing men tor the furtherance of cor
rupt and jobbing purposes.

SCHOOL MEETING THIS EVENING
AT THE COURT HOUSE.
Proposition to Nominate Women.
The Argus is well pleased with the
very sensible action of those who attended
the Republican meeting at the Court House
on Saturday evening, in that they so pos
itively condemned the attempt to drag the
' . , om a
schools into polities. The proposition to
unite with the Hillier's Hall meeting in
holding a citizens meeting at the Court
House this evening, will meet with the
, , -. , .. 4,
hearty approval ot all friends ot the
schools. Tbe one meeting in making the
proposition, aud the other in so readily
accepting it showed a disposition on the
part of both to act in accordance with the
fullest and freest expression of tbe people.
Those who absent themselves from the
Court House this evening either take no
interest in the schools, or must be satisfied
with whatever action taken. A full and
free discussion of tbe situation can do no
harm. Believing, as tbe ARGUS does
that a very positive majority of tbe citizens
are earnest supporters of our system of
public schools a t-ystem upon which, to a
a very large extent, depends the intelli
geuce and usefulness of American citizens,
the meeting must be productive of good to
the school. It is desired that there be
a large attendance, especially as a strong
and probably successful attempt will be
made to nominate two women for members
of the School Board. There are strong
arguments in favor of this, to our city,
new departure, and hence the importance
of a large attendance and the widest range
of argument. If the discussions and the
action of the meeting this evening be
independent of all prejudices of politics,
reliiiioa, sex or condition, aud only locking
to what, under existing circumstances, is
best for the wchools, then 8cJ; c.c'ion will
assuredly be endorsed at the polls. Art

The meeting at the Court House Satur

Cbmn. Rep, City Com." was a very slim
affair, The meeting was called to meet
at 7.30 o'clock, and at that hour The
Argus reporter arrived but found only
the sheriff and the Union reporter present.
The three waited patiently, and finally,
about 8 o'clock, D. P. McKown and Frank
Pbilleo came in but seeing only the three
present, they walked out again.

and then, he understood that this was t
RepuUican meeting. "If this is true," he
gaid, "and the meeting intends to nomin
ate party men, then I decline to have
anvthine to do with it."
Montgomery then nominated Geo. Mix

cliried for the same reasons, as those given
by Dr. Truesdale, except that he was not
a member ot the board.
Montgomery then nominated S.S.Guyer.
Quyer also declined-saying he was not in
favor 0t this being a liepublioan meeting
He also advocated the selection of women
to fill the oihees on the board.
S. r. Cooke was finally induced to
accept the chair, and J.J. rarks (as
usual) was shoved in as secretary

James M. Montgomery arose and said
he bad never made a speech in his life and
he didn't expect to then but he wished to
make an explanation, lie said 1HE ARGUS
had charged him with having called a Re
publican meeting, but he couldn't see
where it found the grounds for making
those charges. He was not personally in
terested in the schools, except that he
would like to see them prosper, and when
two or three of his mends requested him
to call a meeting, he did so, but having
no other thought about the matter than
that it should be a meeting of the citizens
and not a Republican meeting.
(juyer was then requested to spout ' on
the "woman question." He arose and
said he believed he was the only lady's
man present, ana ne was proud ot it.

they wera a disgrace to tbe city. He also

were working 10 and 11 hours for from 75
cents to $1.25 it was time that public
anairs were run on a more economical plan
tbe laboring man could not afford to pay
Dr. Truesdale arose and said that Mr.
Montgomery's apology for caliinir the
meeting was entirely satisfactory to him
but he did not believe that the people gen
erally wanted to bring politics into school
matters and he did not believe Mr. Mont
gomery did but. when that eentleman
signed that call as "Chmn. Iiep. City
Com," he branded it as a political conven
tion, He closed by saying that "as soou
as we bring politics into our schools down
go the schools."
Dr. Truesdale also opposed tbe selection
of women to 11 the vacancies on the board
not because he did not think they were
competent, but thought it would be an ex
periment which he did not like to attempt
at this time -when there was so much
opposition in our publics schools.
The conference committee here returned
and reported that the Hillier's Hall meet
ing bad agreed to meet this convention
and the meeting then adjourned to meet at
he Court House at 7:30 o'clock this evening
"Jttaking' Old Bones."
People who neglect their minor ailments
rarely live to make old bones. The secret
of hale and vigorous old age, lies not only
in taking care of ooe'p health in early life,

also by judicious medication wbeo the pre
