be formed, or how it is that from the
minute cells one should develop into

flourished and even threatened her
life. She bore it all till about a

property he had mortgaged without
her knowledge, and then she lost no
time in beginning divorce proceed

NEIGHBORLY SPIRIT IS SHOWN
llavrnport Ienle New Milk Coin puny a
Davenport has again evinced its
characteristic neighborly spirit to
ward Kock Island institutions by re
fusing a permit to the Tri-City Dot
tied Milk and Hatter company, giv
ing as the reason for doing so that
it does not propose to employ an ad
ditional inspector in order to accom
modate an outside enterprise, claim
ing that it would be necessary to
come to this side of the river in or
der to investigate the source of sup
ply. The matter of issuing a per
mit came before the board of health.
M. 15. Page, the manager of the Tri
City Dottled Milk and P.utter com
pany, and his attorney, 15. F. Peek,
attended the meeting, to back up the
claims set forth in the company's
application to give to the people of
the tity a pure article of milk and
butter. A delegation of Scott county
dairymen were also on hand. They
argued for the niaintainauce of the
independence of the Davenport
dairies, holding that a better quality
of milk was the result where a man
personally supervises the work of
feeding.- milking ami delivering.
This seemed to be sufficient cause,
or excuse rather, for the board in
turn down the new company, whose
application was refused on motion
of Aid. Liiulholm. who was seconded
by City Physician Preston. Mana
ger Page says his company has not
yet abandoned hoe of doing busi
ness in Davenport, but what steps
will next be taken he is not yet pre
pared to say. The action of the
Davenport authorities is no surprise
here. The Peoples Power company.
i, t will lc remembered, was treated
about as shabbily a few years ago in
the matter of the Davenport lighting
contract. Its bid was the lowest,
but the contract was voted to an out
side company, simply because the
Peoples concern happened .to have
its plant on this side of the stream.
