IT IS A FACT ESTABLISHED and well known
that the Arabians attained a height in the knowl
edge of medicine which caused the whole world to
wonder and admire. W ith them the science of
chemistry had its birth, and it la, therefore, not at
ail strange that a people so eminently successful In
the healing art, and so persevering and darirg In
character, should, bv actual and nntirincr nnfri.
ment, discover remedies far surpassing in efficacy
all others, for the cure of Uiose diseases incident to
them from their mode of life. The greater part of
their time r-e'ng spent in hazardous and bloody
warfare with the different tribes, they were subject
to tin most violent attacks of rheumatism, parol vs-is-,
neuralgic pains, and various Inflammatory d"is
eases, as also the most horid wounds, sprains brui
ses, tumors, swellings, oiseases of tne joints, etc,
All these diseases they were so surprisingly effi
cient in curing, that the uninitiated looked with
wonder and attributed their skill t o the powers of
magic. H G. FARRELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT
is a composition of balsams and oils, from rare
plants peculiar to this country, and it was by the
use of the articles composing this great remedy
that not only their physicians, but even the wild
Arabs of the le-ert were enabled to perform such
miraculous cures. Tne Arab steed is world-re
nowned for bis beautiful symmetry of lorm. his
nnurpassed ipeed and agility, and the incredible
fatigue It Is capable of enduring. Why is it? Be
cause from the time of his birth his limbs are care
fully watched, and npon the first appearance of
disease the magic lotion is applied, and each things
as confirmed sweeny, pou-evn, nstuia, ringDone,
scratches. spavin, lameness, etc.. etc.. are unknown
The same result will follow in all cases where H.
O. Farrell's Genuine Arabian Liniment is nsed in
time. Therefore delav not in procuring a good
uddIt of it. for evcrr dollar spent in it will save
ynu twenty, and a great deal of suffering, if not
your life.

Some difficult and beautiful manoeuvrs
were performed during the march, the

being occupied, besides crowds on either
side of the streets throughout the line of

bilitated, are advised by physicians to take mod
erate amounts of whisky two or three times during

vice frequently increase the number of "drinks"

erage which will not create thirst for intoxicating
liquors, and which is inteuded especially for the
benefit of debilitated persons, whether at home or
abroad, is Dr. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic. Con
taining the juices of many medicinal herbs, this
preparation does not create an appetite for the in
toxicating cup. The nourishing and the life sup
porting properties of many valuable natural pro

Washington, Aue. 28. The
Tiie Labor Party in Moline,
The workingmen of Moline, who par
ticipated in the late strike at Deere & Co.'s
shops, were wise when they took the advice
of The Augus and compromised their dif
ferences with their employers. By not re
sorting to any acts of violence they showed
very good sense, and thereby secured and
kept the sympathies of nine-tenths of the
business men of Moline. The Argus is
informed that some of the very best, and
cool-headed mechanics are seriously dis
cussing the propriety of organizing a work
women's party in Moliile, as has been at
tempted in Rock Island. The men who
have the desire to organize a labor party
in Rock Island are anxious to include the
workingmen of Moline, while the anxious
republican office-seekers are trying their
level beet to prevent the organization of
the labor party in Moline. Both of these
efforts will probably fail, for the reason
that the workincmen of Moline have had
a taste of the strike aud are in earnest in
their demand for relief. For years they
have voted just as Charlie Peere, S. H
Velie and the republican candidates have
told them to vote, and at the same time
have felt their condition growing rapidly
worse. Charlie Deere and S, II. Velie
can no longer stand at the polls and dictate
to them how they shall vote. In fact it is
quite probable the men will vote about
as they please. Hie ARGUS does not
share the regret so widely expressed by
party journals at the disposition of the
workingmen to carry their grievances into
politics, aud seek redress by governmental
action. It does not dispute the charges
ot iguorance so noisily fulminated against
the workingmen, nor the wild aud chimer
ical nature of some of the reforms which
they demand. Uut their notions are not
cruder than those of many prominent pub
lic men on the same class of subjects.
There is no better corrective for false ideas
than to bring them iuto the urena of polit
ical discussion, and hence TllE Argus ad
vises the workingmen of Moliue to discuts
the subject in all its bearings. Th
workingmen ot Uoek Island ask you to
"leave old parties forever," The Argus
goes still deeper and advises you to "leave
old vartu vremdices torever. lou de-
maud certain reforms in eovernmental
action which shall make better times
Experience has taught you uot to expect
these reforms in the republican party.
he democratic party has fought the perni
cious legislation of the republican party.
which has brought on hard times, step by
step. It has opposed class legislation, mo
nopolies, subsidies and the revenue laws,
all of which have made the rich richer and
the laboring maa poorer. Now the time
has come when the laboring man can make
influence felt. And The Argus is
completed. The total population is found
to be 6,409, and the number under 21 is
2,909; and of those of school age 1,737,
between 6 and 21 years of age. The num
ber of families is 1,309, of which 656 are
Swede; 536 American; 85 German; 14
Irish; and 18 colored. This indicates
that, if any foreign language should have a
place in our public schools, that of Swedish
is justly entitled, by far, to the preference.
But it is not the intention of the free
school system, to teach every child its
mother tongue, but to do the best we can
with our limited funds and brief time, to
impart the essential elements of a common
school education in the use ot the Amer
ican language alone. For anything beyond
this, let the people who have time and
money, look to schools supported by tuition
or private charity, and not increase the
taxes which are already too heavy.

like cases at the mouth of the Mississippi.
and is considered feasible by all practical
men. It is, to put in a coffer dam -across
the slcugh.-about 100 feet above the bridge;
then extend a wing dam from the lower
end of Campbell's island, down into the
slough, something near the shape of
horse shoe; thus forcing all the water on
the Illinois side of Campbell's island down
to the coffer dam above the bridge, and
back around the point of the Government
island, creating a current and suction of
sufficient force to carry all the loose mud
out of the sloueh. This certainlv appears
to be reasonable, and, if it can be done for
the amount at which it is estimated by
Mr. Hanks, is unquestionably the cheap
est and most effectual way by which the
the Water Power Co. can furnish to their
patrons, the manufacturers, the power
which they are receiving $1,000 per month
tor, and which is at present, and will con
tinue to be for some time, worthless. The
Water Power Co. did not accept the propo
sition, but are hesitating, it is thought by
some, with the hope that the manufactories
will, rather than that things should con
tinue as they are, come to the tront and
pay a large share of the expense of the
undertaking. If that is their motive, it is
of the basest sort, and is in accordance with
their system of extortion practiced upon
every occasion. The manufacturers
might, as a matter of policy, feel com
pelled to share this expense, in order to
get the power which they pay the company
$1,000 per montn for furnishing, but it
would not ne ngnt or lust, rive or six
months rent of the power would pay th
entire co.tof this improvement, and, if the
ater Power Co. have any regard for th
interests ot the manufactories, or the city
or, even their future prosperity, they will
not hesitate long to adopt this plan, or
some other ty which to clean out the
slough.
