tune he has been on duty at Omaha,
Chicago and other stations in the ser
vice of the army and is now at New

ing his mother. The Cincinnati Times-
Star has this to say of him:
" The man who directed the hand

explosion of a single cartridge, and
without the discrepany of one cent in
the tremendous item of J 1.000,000. is

inompson was assigned to duty in

gated to select camp sites for the
army ot occupation. Himself and as
sociates traveled extensi elv in the
island antl selected camping grounds in
the provinces of Havana. Matan.as
and Pinar del Rio. He savs
that in parts of the island thev en
countered ruins or ma;niticent sntrar
plants, destroyed by the Spaniards or
the Cubans, as the case chanced to be
the Cubans seeking to destroy in
dustries which produced revenue for
their oppressors, and the Spaniards
devastating the country in the scheme
of reconceutratiou. Some of the re
fineries and plants destroyed, Lieut
Col. Thompson estimated to have
been of the value of $o00,000 or more
An Eden of Opportunities.
"tuua he pictures a garden spot an
Eden of opportunities, particularly
for the agriculturalist. Farming
land, lie says is rich and fertile, and
what is more to the purpose for
the home-seeker, is cheap. Excellent
land can be bought for from $ 2 to ?5
an acre. Havana he descrilies as a

Cannon won the opening fall in
nine minutes, with a half-Nelson and

second in 14 minutes with an English
sideroll and double crosslock. Can

ment Front a Km k Island Lady
Every mother in Rock Island should
read this statement. Many mothers
blame their children for what thev
are not always able to prevent. The
poor little oiles suffer for their inabil
ity to do differently. Many children
are born with weak kidneys. Thev
wet the led uirrht after niiiht, because
they really can't help it. Mothers
scold, then" whip aud olten shame the
child, but the accidents go on nightly.
If 2 cents' worth of forethought were
used, it would be seen that after whip
ping, scolding and shaming the child
if it still continued this habit, that
the child must certainly have weak
kidneys or an inflammation in its
bladder. Morrow's Kid-ne-oids cure
this trouble perfectly. They are easy
to take, as thev are tablets" (yellow)
and not a nasty, nauseous pill.
We want to give you the experience
of Mrs. Harriet Atkinson, residing at
418 Ninth street, this city, who savs:
Mv husband died a few years ago of
Hright's disease. I have four chil
dren, three of them with weakness of
the kidneys, which of course they in
herited. They did wet the bed at
night and their clothes in daytime;
the ages of the three affected are the
eldest ones, aged respectively 11, 'J
ami 7 years.
I have given Morrow's 'Kid-ne-oids
to all three of them, and they are en
tirely cured of this weakness in the
daytime, and it is seldom that any of
them wet the bed at niffht now. I
im still rivinr them Kid-ne-oids, and
I know from what Morrow's Kid-ne
oids have already done that they will
cure them entirely. I procured th
kid-ne-oids at Huhnsen s drug store
To coulirui the statement of Mrs
Atkinson, we want von to ask her
about Morrow's Kid-ne-oids: she is a
grateful mother and will be very glad
to fell vou personally how much her
children were heuetited by their use,
Io not confound Morrow's Kid-ne
oids with any kind of kidney pills
thev are not pills at all, but yellow
tablets, and are put up in wooden
boxes which sell at 50 cents, and con
tain enough for about two weeks
treatment, and are never sold in bulk

Kock Island would be the proper
place for holding a meeting or repre-
entatives of interested towns for the
purpose of reorganizing the Western
Baseball association for next seasou,
in the opinion of Belden Hill, who
managed the Cedar Rapids club last
vear, and who will retain his old po
sition in 1S99 if that town has a team.
Belden has written a letter to his o'd
friend. Lou Eddy, secretary of the lo
cal association, in which he savs:
Don't you think there should be a
mectim? called as soon as possible to
organize the association? Can't you
and Mike Sexton send out a call to
ei"ht or ten rood towns and call a
meeting in Rock Island? I think

again, i tiiiuk we can get up another
nice snug circuit if some one will
ahead aud call a meeting and let us
get settled so people will know what
there is to do. I think it will be a
good vear for baseball."
As T. J. Hiekev, of St. Joe, the ex
ecutive head of the association, does
not seem disposed to act. it is possi
ble a move iu accordance with Mr.
Hill's suggestion will be made soon
