companion to do likewise. Forsberg
snemed unable to make an effort to
rsts bis life, and disappeared be

Freeman tells the story of the
drowning as follows: "I and Charles
Noreen went down to Olof Loren
en'e Saturday night. Forsberg
came down Sunday morning. We
walktd np along the shore to where
his boat was, and he proposed that
he and I ride home in it. I rowed
psrt of Ike waj, when Forsberg told
me that I did not know how to row a
boat. Then ha took the oars. We
went alosg all right until we reached
the barge at Kahlke's yard. The
skiff went right under the bow of
the barge, aud after partly filling
with water upset, throwing us both
ioto the stream. I grabbed the top
of the boat and I called to Forsberg
to do likewise, when suddenly he
sank frem Tlew. I called for help.
Claus Postal and Alfred Nickeil came
out with a skiff and took me ashore.

A. J. Allen, the Montpelier editor
and his son Charles, were fined . re
spectfully 25 and costs and f 15 and
costs in a Muscatine justice court
Saturday afternoon for their Sunday
night assanlt en Alfred Stlgera. who
had been paying attention to Editor
Alien's - pretty daughter at Mont
pelier, across the river from Drury
township. The Aliens, who pat np
a stiff fight in the lower court, at
once appealed to tbe Muscatine
county district conrt. George E
Ilnbbcll, of Davenport, assisted by
Henry Jayne, of Muscatine, con
ducted the defense, while County At
torney Hanley and City Attorney
McDevitt engineered the prosecu
tion. The hearing was scheduled
for Justice Rowan's roort, bat was
transferred to that of Justice Mc
Devitt at the eleventh hoar. The
defendant's attorneys demanded and
secured a trial by a'jury. A number
of business men were hastily sum
moned, and then tbe defense inter
posed with another motion, for what
in legal phraseology is called a
struck" jury, which calls for a
venire of 18 men. Six of these, are
atrnck from the list by both sides,
and the jury to try the momentous
issue is selected from the remaining
12. These formalities complied with
and a satisfactory jury secured the
trial ot the case was commenced.
Both aides summed up with elabor
ate arguments, and then the case
was given to the jury to decide.
When any part of the body isn't
doing the work that nature intended
it to do, it puts the whole system out
of tune out of harmony. Siekceaa
in one part of the body is likely to
run into all parts of the body. Wheu
children stand a row of bricks on
end, they knock the whole row down
by upsetting one briek. That is ex
actly what happens to the health
when the bowela fail to perform
their proper function. Constipation
makes trouble all along the line
puts the liver out of order, is bad
for the kidneys bad for the stom
ach. It holds in the body poisonous
matter, and because it cannot go
any plaoe else it gets into the blood.
The blood carries it all over the sys
tem. That makes sluggishness, las
situde, bad breath and foul taste in
the mouth, fills the stomach with
gas and causes windy belching, stops
digestion in the stomach, eauses
soar stomach, heartburn and head
ache. You can avoid all such trou
ble, for Dr. Pieroe's Pleasant Pellets
