HERE arc two values to every purchase
what it costs and what it pays you. Cork
costs 8 cents a pound, but if you are drown
ing half a mile from shore, its value would
be "not what you pay for cork, but what cork saves
you." When a woman buys soaps she often con
fuses the two values. She sees only what she pays.
She overlooks what she receives. Now a single
cake of Ivory Soap pays back from ten to twenty
times its cost in the saving it effects. Test it your

WOMAN DROPS DEAD
ON DAVENPORT STREET.
The watermelon was too heavy
for mamma to carry and she fell,"
was the substar.ee of the statement
that little Alvin Hanssen bore to his
father Saturday evening when he re
turned to their home in Davenport
unaccompanied by his mother with
whom he had started for the grocery
tore. The father and daughter hast
ened to fee what was th matter with
Mrs. Hanssen, and were horrified to
find her lying on the sidewalk about
a block from home. dead.
This sudden death occurred Satur
day evening about 8 o'clock. Mrs.
Jonanna Hanssen, wife of Jacob Han
ssen, of 1637 Taney street, left her
borne accompanied by her little boy
to get a watermelon. She went to
the Schlosser & Plogmann grocery,
and was returning with the melon
when she suddenly fell to the walk
with a groan. The little boy seeing
she did not get up ran frightened to
their home and told the father.
Death was ciused by heart disease.
O. O. Buck, Beirne, Ark., says: "I
was troubled with constipation until
I bought DeWitt's Little Early Risers.
Since then have been entirely cured
of my old complaint. I recommend

NORMAL SCHOOL STORY.
C J. Seatle, president of the board
of trustees of '.he Western Illinois

story published in yesterday's Chica

among the trustees to elect a princi
pal for the school at the meeting at
Mr. Searle says the meeting has been
called to award contracts, and that if
tho matter of naming a principal
should be brought unit will not be by

MOLINE THINKS MARSH
WILL HAVE EASY SLEDDING
The Moline Dispatch has a hunch
that, unless there is a big change in
the situation before the spring con
vention. Col. Marsh will have a clear
field for the republican congressional
nomination in this new district, in
which Hock Island is located.
So far as known there is no other
candidate, continues the Moline pro
phet. There has been some talk that
James McKinney, of Aledo, would be
a candidate, but it is now understood
that he prefers his present office to
that of congressman and will not be a
candidate. He has been on tbe state
committee for three campaigns and
would probably be pleased to retain
that place if it were offered him. No
Rock Island county man has yet made
any demonstration toward asking his
friends to support him for the place,
and it is probable that none will.
There is a feeling that it will be
well to let Col. Marsh have the exper
ience of an election in a district where
there is a strong republican majority
as a sort of reward for having led a
forlorn hope so many years. In his
former district, the" one now repre
sented by Judge Mickey, he bad but
a fighting chance for election, but he
wsi elected three times out of four.
The congressional convention will
have litt e to do, as the naming of
the candidate for congress, tbe elec
tion of the state com mil teems n and
the appointment of the congressional
committee is all the business it will
have to attend to.

The Daily Short Story
That Persistent Bui1.
When I was a stock rider In Now Zea
land. I was once chased ly an infuriat
ed bull. I made for a fence, but liefore
Senilis over it fell into a ditHi that 1
bail not noticed. The bull followed me
and stood glaring down on nie. My
position waw a most Ignoble one. I
dared not try to regain an upright po
sition, for on the slightest movement
the bull's horns were threateningly low
ered toward 'inc. I tried by shouting
at him to drive him away, but as that
only produced n renewal 011 Ids part of
the attempt to get at me with bis horns
I was soon obligiil to desist.
I had often heard of the power of the
huiuan eye to overawe sava;;e animals,
and I fixed niyvyes uion him in a man
ner that I thought ought to have t lie
desired elTeet. But either this power
lias been overrated or the elrcumstnnees"
were not favorable, for the bull regard
ed my efforts with icrfcct cou tempt.
Finally I made up my mind to remain
quite still. In the hope that be would
soon get tired aud go and leave nie, but
the bull was a pertinacious bull and
had evidently made up his mind to Fee
the affair out. My position was every
moment getting more Irksome, and, lo
Kide. It was humiliating In the ex

perfectly aware, for be regarded me
with a contemptuous look that was
However, there was nothing to do
but remain where I was till something
occurred to relieve nie of the animal's
prcHCii-e. I should le missed nt the
station before morning, and the worst
that could happen was that I might
have to remain as I was all night, when
some of the men would Im sure to come
and relieve me.
There are few things I cannot make
up my mind to wheu I know they are
inevitable, and. though not a pleasant
alternative. I soon made up mine to
this. I even made an attempt to go off
to sleep, when, to my discomfort, it be
gan to rain. This was decidedly un
pleasant, but I was getting reckless.
"Oh. yes," I exclaimed in a satirical
tone, "rain by all means, do." And It
My attention wus now called to the
behavior of the bull, lie licgan to sniff
the air, pawing the ground aud tossing
up bis head In a manner expressive of
triumph and demoniac Joy. This look
ed like bearing malice, and to mortify
the brute I endeavored to appear as If
I found the rain rather pleasant and
refreshing than otherwise. Hut I did
the noble animal an injustice. He was

It was some time before I could real
ize this fact. The ditch was beginning
to fill with water, and my discomfort
was becoming intense. But I looked as
cheerful as I could In order to deceive
the bull. Suddenly It Hashed upon me
that the ditch would soon be full of
water, and that I must either remain
at the bottom aud be drowned or come
out and fall a victim to my enemy.
To say that this discovery filled 1110
with dismay is but feebly to express
my feelings. I turned my eyes despair
ingly to the sky. There was no com

It presented showed that there was no
chance of the rain abating. I had Itccn

The ditch was filling up rapidly, and

I looked up at him.
He was waiting for me.
He was pawing the ground impa

look- iu his eye that was appalling.
My heart sank within me. But there
was no help for it. "1 must screw my
courage up to the sticking point," 1
said. Ami I smiled grimly and with
some self admiration at this mild and

What welcome sound Is that which
meets my ear?
