Deputy Sheriff lie yn olds last even-
ing returned from the upper end of
the county, where he had been on the
Wendt murder case. The report
that a man and woman living in the
vicinity of Princeton hvl seen the
murder was found to bo groundless,
having sprung from an idlo rumor.
The deputy sheriff jesterday
went to the Cool placi, where
suspicion was first aroused against
the Adler coupli, and traced them
backward, to lind, if possible, where
they left the river. Ha had no diffi
culty in following their trail back to
the outskirts of Port Byron, where
they were first noticed coining out of
town about 9 o'elock in the tuorniDg
of the day after tho murder.
Search for ShlfT.
Prior to this no trace could be
found of tbem. although all the
residents along the streets leading out
of town in all directions were closely
questioned. An investigation slung
toe river also failed to disclose any
information as to the disposal of a
skiff that day or the one previous.
A resident of Tort Uyron has volun
teered to continue the quest for a
strange boat along the river; Manv
stories of possible clues are afloat in
the upper end, but as tbey are fol.

found to come to naught.

YOU CAN CURE IT.
A Piaw Cure for Catarrh In Tablet Form.
The old time' treatment for catarrh
was in the form of douches or sprays;
later on internal remedies wcie given
with greater success, but being in
liquaid or powdered form were incon
venient and were open to the same
objection to all liquid remedies, that
is, that they lose whatever medicinal ,
power they may bare had on expos
ure to the Kir.
The tablet is the ideal form in
which to administer medication, but
until recently no successful catarrh
tablet has ever been attempted.
At this writing however, a most
excellent and palatable remedy for
(alarrb has been placed before the
public and sold by druggists, called
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, composed
of the most recent discoveries in
medicines for the cure of catarrh, and
t suits from their mo have been
Stuarts Catarrh .tablets contain
principally highly concentra'cd anti
septics, which kill the catarrh germs
in the blood and mucous membranes,
and in this respect areft'ictly scieu
tific and modern, as it has bo-n known
for some years past by tho ablest phy
sicians that the most successful ca
tarrh treatment was by inhaling or
lbe use ol inbalars. ooucnes ana
sprays, however, ts a nuisance and
inconvenience, and moreover can in
no wise compare with tho same reme
dies given in tablet form cither in ef
ficacy or convenience.
A clerk in a prominent insurance
oflice in Pittsburg relates his exper
ience with Stuart's Catarrh Tablets
in a few words but to the point. He
says: "Catarrh has been almost con
stantly with me for eight years; in
this climate it soems almost impossi
ble to get rid of it. 1 a Woke every

half hour it was cough, gag, expector

THIS LOCALITY HAS
SERIOUS WATER PROBLEM.
Residents in the vicinity of Fif
teenth street and Fifth-and-a-half
avenue are face to face with a water
problem that threatens to submerge
them. To them the Chicago drainage
district theories are small and insig
nificant. They aro up against the
real thing and they have no oil to
pour on the troubled waters. They
claim to have appealed to tho city
fathers in vain.
(iecrge Perry and Jack Doyle, who
are trustees of the drainage district,
havo eat up far into the night with
blue prints and pencils trying to fig
ure it out. but they can find ro relief.
After yesterday's downpour they bad
water enough to float the flagship of

justly indignant that no action ii

DROWNS IN ACISTERN:
OLD LADY SUICIDES.;
Some time during Tuesday nitrht
Mrs. Amelia U'iggers, wife ot Henry
Wiggers, residing on the Middle road,
near the Belmont school, in Scott
county, Iowa, ended her life by jump- j
ing into a cistern and drowning her
self in five and one half feet of water.
Mrs. Wiggers, who was 6. years of
age, appeared in her usual health and
spirits Tuesday, and in tho evening
she and her hnsbard were seated on
their front porch until ):30 o'clock,
when the latter retired, thinking that
his wife would soon follow him.
That was tho last seen of her alive
Abut 5 o'clock yesterday morning
Mr. WiggerB arose and not bearing
his wife about, went to her room and
found it deserted. Not finding her
he searched the place over and called
to her, but received no response.
As he passed the cistern he noticed
the lop off and peering in saw the
lifeless body of his wile at the bot
EJreoaed to Wed.
