Manager Miller has given his patrons
a rare treat. There is no other at

want to see them again. The show
acts like a salad. It is crisp and
bright all the way through, continu
ally presenting new features, some

COUNTY BOARD MATTERS
Allowance for Prisoners Increased Moline
The county board. today increased
the allowance of the sheriff from 30 to
40 cents each per day for keeping pris
oners at tbe county jail.

The Rock Island Union and the Mo

tract for the publishing of the official
proceedings. Their bids were $100
and $60 respectively. Other bids
were Rock Ilam Alters $190. tie
Moline Dispatch 25 cents per inch
Evening Mail $99.
Tho special committee appointed to
investigate and fix the salaries of the
board of review reported and re com
mended that the salary of each mem
ber be $1 per day and that the work
shall be done in accordance with tb
customs followed in other counties i f
Moline is planning to make a fight
before the board for an allowance t f
$5 per week for each poor patient
cared for at the city hospital of
that town. Tbe bills presented dur
ing tbe last year have always caned
for $5, but have been shaved down to
$3.50, which amount is charged tbe
county for poor patients at St. Antho
ny's hospital here. Tho board mem
bers feel that there should be no dis
crimination in the intUer of pay on
the part of the county between the
two institutions. II. J. Gripp, who
was one of tbe members who opposed
allowing the Moline hopital moie
than St. Anthony's, was defeated for
reelection in Moline this spring aim
ply because of his stand on the hospi
tal question, several Aioune pny&i
cians are engineering tbe tight in be
half of their city hospital, iney went
so far as to demand that Supervisor
Cornelius Donovan be not con
tinued a member of ' the poor
committee, of which he was chairman
last year. It is said tbey had exacted
a promise from bupervioer Carey that
in tbe event of his reelection to the
chairmanship of the board he see to it
that D novan be dropped from that
particular committee, assuring Carey
ne would be taken care oi ,in Moline
when the nomination for sberiiT came
around again. Donovan's friends on
the bo rd heard of this scheme, and
succeeded in convincing Mr. Carey he
would better serve the interests of
the whole county by continuing Su
pervisor Donovan on the poor com
mittee, which he did. Moline people,
it is understood, will ask that a spe
cial committee be appointed from the
board to inspect tbe two hospitals,
their intention being to try to de
monstrate that the care given at the
Moline hospital entitles it to the $5
per week asked for.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to core in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment.' Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces ot tnc system, thereby de
stroying tbe foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient, strength by
building up tbe constitution and as
sisting nature in doing its work.
Tbe proprietors have so much faith
n its curative powers, that tbey offer
one hundred dollars for any case that
it fails to cure. Send for list of tes
timonials. Address, F. J. Chewet & Co.. To
