PROF. BALL TO GIVE HIS BEST
LECTURE BEFORE PRESS CLUB
Sir Kobert Hall, the English as
troiiomfr mid lecturer, who will be
hear.l at the Hurt is ojera house on
the evening of Dec. 12, under 'the
ausHt-es of the Tri-City Press club,
will talk of upon his favorite sub
ject, "Time an.l Tide." lie is using
also two others, "Other Worlds Than
Ours," and "The Great Fire Mist." on
his present American tour, but his
lecture here will le the one that he
recognizes as his best and the one in
which he appears to the lest advan
tage. Major Pond, through whose
instrumentality a date was secured
with Sir Uobert, has taken a personal
interest in securing him for the club,
and he privately commends in high
est terms both lecturer and his sub
ject. While Sir Uobert is not well known
to the public in the western part of
this country he is very popular in
the cast and in his native England
he is recognized as having few peers
and no superiors on the rostrum. On
his present tour among the eastern
cities of the United States and Can
ada he is drawing great crowds to
hear him and everywhere he is ac
corded the most complimentary
press notices. The Press club is in
curring considerable financial risk in
taking iiM.n itself the fuarantee
necessary to secure a date from him.
but the contract has Wen closet I in
the faith that the public will appre
ciate the opportunity that is leing
extended. It is the aim of the club
to secure one entertainment annual
ly and to make that the best that
can be had.
Of the general qualifications and
characteristics of the famous Eng

TO REELECT SEXTON
Meeting of Ball League Directors
M. II. Sexton, president of the
Three-I Baseball league, and J. F.
Munger, president of the Rock Island
club, accompanied by their wives,
left at noon for Chicago to attend
the annual "meeting of the league
directors to be held tomorrow at the
Palmer house. Secretary L. G. Eddy,
of this city, and Manager J. T. Hayes,
of Davenport, left for Chicago 3-es-terday
to be on the ground early.
The springing of Ed J. Holland, of
Illoomington, as a candidate for the
league presidency has not improved
the standing of that town in the
eyes of the league magnates, several
of whom have expressed themselves
in advance of the Chicago meeting as
saying that Illoomington should
count herself lucky if she retains her
franchise without seeking the direct
ing office of the organization. Mr.
Holland is not responsible for this
feeling against the town, for he is an
excellent gentleman, and undoubted
ly would make n capable executive,
but it is due to the unpopularity
gained by the team of that place dur
ing the past season. The team, con
ceded on all sides to be the roughest
in the league, seemed to have the
moral backing of its home town, and
therefore the town must stand the
Although Mr. Sexton has repeated

for reelection to the presidency the

FILED IN DIVORCE BILL
Herbert Sheldon, through his at

filed a bill of divorce alleging
grounds which are somewhat isu-

couple have four children now grown.
In 1SS5 the husband came to America
with the understanding that his wife
and family were to follow as soon
as he had a home provided for them.
In 1SS7, the husband avers, while
living at Iligbee, Mo., he sent for his
wife, but she refused to come to him,
and has continued to do so since.
THE OLD WAY
Of Treating Stomach Trouble and ludijrea-
tlon at Harbaroua and I'mIpm One.
We say the old way, but really it
is the common and usual one at
the present time and many dyspep
tics, and physicians as well, consid
er the first step in attempting to
cure indigestion is to diet, either De
selecting certain food and rejecting
others or to greatly diminish the
quantity of food usually taken.
In other words the starvation plan,
is by many, supposed to be the first
essential in the cure of weak diges
The almost certain failure of the
starvation cure for stomach trouble
has been proven time and again, but
still the usual advice, when dyspep

All this is radically wrong. It is
foolish and unscientific to recom
mend dieting or starvation to a per
son suffering from dyspepsia because
indigestion itself starves every organ
and every nerve and fibre in the
What is needed is abundant nutri

of good, wholesome, well-cooked
food and soriie natural digestive to

This is exactly the purpose for

adapted, and this is the way. they

The patient eats plenty of whole
some food, and Stuart's dyspepsia
tablets digests it for him.
And this is in accordance with na
ture and common sense because in
this way the whole system is nour

gest the foid, whether the stomach
works or not. One of Stuart s dys

of meat, eggs and similar food.

of a furnace which Sundine was try

chimney upon the soot with the ex
pectation that when the gasoline
went off the soot would go with it up
