Lieut. Tubbs Punishes Those
Who Failed to Take Lake
NEW UTTESEST IS LOCAL DIVISION
Firty-Hve Members in Good Stand
ing Many Are Joln
Lieut. F. L. Tubbs, commander of
the local division of the Naval Re-
serves, has discharged 15 men for fail-
ng to take the cruise on the U. S. S.
Dorothea off Lake Michigan with the
division last summer and for con-
tinued absence from drill. The regu
lations place a member liable to ex
pusion after he has missed four drill
periods without n reasonable excuse
and Lieut. Tubbs proposes hereafter
to be more strict about the enforce
ment of this rule.
The discharge of so manv members
does not weaken the membership so
much as mitrht be supposed, as there

condition of the naval militia here is
Isuch that there is very little appre

past of the necessity arising for the
consolidation of the Rock Island div
ision witn Rome other. 1 here was
never more interest shown than now
in the work of the inland sailors and
with the control of the reserves pass

I dieted, there is no doubt that the
popularity of the organization will
continue to increase.

to part with it.
It was found by a farmer residing
near the banks of the ledar river.
Alter doing routine work, acenmpa-
nied by his son, he went down to the
river and spent a couple of hours
gathering a pile of shells. When
they thought they had enough to
keep them busy opt-ning them for a

the-first one opened contained this
gem of brightest and purest rays se

parted with it, feeling convinced that

Working Nights Two Months Oat-
look for Future is En
couraging. With the close of Weyerhaueser &
Denkmann's mill this afternoon the
lumber season in this city came to an
end. All things considered the run
has been a good one, bearing in mind
the decline into which the logging
business has fallen in the river towns.
fhere was a fair supply of logs and
the local mills were kept busy.
Ihe Weyerhueser & Denkmann mill
was run at full capacity all the sea
son anil about two months of the
time after the burning of the com
panys mill in Davenport the plant
was operated at night in order to use
the logs that had been contracted
for, fill the orders of. the Davenport
mm lor lumber, so tar as was pos
sible, and to give the men who were
thrown out of employment in Daven
port a chance to work.
in spite or the extra time put in
tne out put oi me mm was not as
large as that which had been cut in
some of the more pros)erous sea
sons in the past. The cut is estimat
ed at 35.000.000 feet, with the usual
amount of lath and shingles.
Lsmber Compnuy'e Output.
The output of the Rock Island
Lumler company's plant for the pea
Hon is estimated at 17,000.000 feet,
besides the lath and shingles. In the
spring there was fear of a shortage
n the log supply and the mill was
run at half capacity till fall. The
burning of the Daenport mills and
yards gave a supply of logs, while it
improved the demand for lumber by
shortening the supply, and on Oct. 1
the plant was put at its full capacity
land run so till the season was finish-
led last week.
Pronm-t for Xnt Ymriirlcht.
1 he prospects for next year
most encouraging, and Imth of
mills in this city will be kept in ope
ration. The stock of the - Rock Isl
and Lumber company is short, nnd
the mill is even now being repaired
nnd put in shape to make an early
I leginning next year nnd run at full
capacity all the year. While no effort
will Ik made to increase the output
of the lower mill the usual trade Is
expected nnd the average cut will be
made to meet it barring tmforseen
accidents. The overhauling of the
machinery will at once begin in prep
aration for next year.

Joseph Shelley, of Drury, who was

found guilty last evening, the jury
returning a verdict after a long de
liberation. The defendant is declar

counts against him. Shelley, it may

tice in court here a year ago when he
appeared as the complaining witness
nirnmst his step-son whom he ac
cused of putting a loud of shot into
his anatomy at close range as the re

The occasion for the present prose
cution occurred early last summer
when Shelley went "off the handle

When things are "the best" they

Hare, a leadinc drujrgrist, of Belle

are the best selling bitters I have
handled in 20 years." You know
why? Most diseases begin in disor
ders of stomach, liver, kidneys, bow

liver, kidneys and bowels, purifies the
blood, strenghtens the nerves, hence
cures multitudes of maladies. It
