The Rock Falls News, which has
been watching the Hennepin canal
interestedly, says that "the only
known new tact is that the dam for
the feeder will be built between the
cities of Rock Falls and Sterling, and
that the water to supply the feeder
will be taken from the river within
mile of the city of Rock Falls, and
perhaps within a quarter of a mile of
tlio city limits. This much is as
surrcd all the rest of the newspaper
talk is conjecture." Then going into
the conjecture business it predicts
among other things that congress
will this term make a liberal appro
priation for the Hennepin conal, as
well as all other works which go to
the strengthening of the defenses of
the nation, in view of the war
talk among all nations. The Hen
ncpin canal will be needed for the
transfer of gun boats between the
great lakes and the Mississippi river,
and it will be pushed to an early

They may not think they have dys
pepsia, but the fact remains that
they do not eat enough food, or what
they eat is not quickly and properly
uigesiea as it should be.
ur. iiananuson says the reason is
because the stomach lacks eertniu
digestive acids and peptones and de-
iicicm secretion of gastric juice.
Natures remedy in such cases is
to supply what the weak stomach
lacks. There are several good prep
arations which will do this, but none
