the lack of motive power is said to be
the worst difficulty. Engines have

utterly unable to deliver their coke.
It is saitl that in Virginia a number of
plants are shut down. In Alabama
coal mines, coke ovens, iron mines
and furnaces are all greatly embar

KEEP SHY OF STRANGERS
IS CHIEF DARNELL'S ADVICE
M oved lv the revelation of a fresh
scheme on the part of a thief for
acquiring things that did not belong
to him Chief of Police Darnell yester
day expressed a sweeping distrust in
mankind. "I've seen so -many new
and strange grafts worked lately
that blessed if I have not begun to
think every stranger I see is a thief,"
he said: "There are a good many
transients moping about since the
first of the year, especially, and they
seem to want all kinds of articles.
New schemes nre being sprung all
over the country by this class of citi
zens and often merely to assist them
in getting articles that they can
neither sell, eat nor wear. They
seem to steal for the love of being
mean. Hotel thieves are one of the
most prevalent classes and one of the
meanest to deal with. They have In
come so proficient that they fish for
a man's clothes through the transom
and drag them ut of the room with
out having entered it. I think it is
everybody's business to be shy of
strangers these days."

The Molinc Dispatch has received

that a mimbe r of the smaller phiuts
of the Kepublic Iron and Steel com
pany incliidiiitr ihe Sylvan Steel
works of Molinc are to be dismantl
ed and abandoned, and that Iheir use
ful machinery ami equipment are to

for the taking of a certain amount of
stock in the trust oy Springfield
"No otiicer of the company would
either drny or atlirm thi.s report when
i; pproached today and asked for the
truth of the matter, and this attitude
is taken as confirmatory of the per
sistent reports which have been cur
rent that the Moline mill is one of
those to be abandoned.
"The mill here is to be enlarged
and modernly equipped to do all the
work of this district."
Along with this word confirmatory
of the news in last evening's Argus,
conies news received in the tri-cities
that, in response to appeals from the
three cities orders have been given
by the oflicials at the llepublic's
otliee in Chicago to the effect that
the Moline mill be given more orders
than in the past with a view to run
ning somewhat nearer its capacity.
At present only a comparatively
small force is employed and it is said
the majority of the men who were
laid 1T owing to the scarcity f or
ders have located elsewhere. The
loss tfi the twin-cities in point of
population, would not be so great if
the mill is moved, but the loss of the
industry is most to be deplored.

Yon can best succeed In life with a good
digestion. A strong stomach makes .1 vigor
ous man. The feeling of langour. the dull
headache, the sensation of fullness, pains
and tenderness In the region oTthe stomach,
flatulence, belching and vomiting, the
thousand and one symptoms of indigestion
or other stomach trouble, of which most of
us know more or less, unfit both body and
mind for hard work or continuous applica
tion. You wouldn't suffer like that If you
knew a certain remedy, would you? Yet
such a remedy exists. Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure quickly relieves all these symptoms,
and, by giving the stomach entire rest,
6peedlly cures the disease itself.
Even among the happy possessors of com
paratively sound stomachs there are few
who are not at least occasional sufferers.
Irregular hours, mild dissipation, excessive
use of tobacco, hasty eating or overindul
gence in a favorite dish frequently produce
as unpleasant though not as lasting results
as the most serious of chronic cases. If
t hese temporary sufferers realized that Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure offered, sure and almost im
mediate relief how many would neglect to
keep it constantly in the house?
You can go about your business and dis
regard a pain in any other part of t he body.
Eut stomach trouble prostrates. The stom
ach supplies the entire system. If it fails
to perform its task these supplies are cut
off and we cannot live without food. We
all know this, but haven't we fallen into the
error of assuming that, once swallowed, food
has accomplished the purpose for which it
was eaten? It hasn't, by any means. Until
It is properly digested the system cannot
assimilate it. It remains in the stomach
until it decomposes and might far better
not have been eaten at all. Kodol Dyspep
sia Cure digests this food without aid from
the stomach and digests it as well as the
stomach itself could do the work. Through
its aid the food you have- eaten is reduced
to a form in which the 6ysteni can assimi
late it and the body is built up while the
tired stomach rests.
The trouble with dyspeptics is that they're
starving. They have eaten but their food
is undigested and consequently docs them
no good. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure not only,
relieves the patient's sufferings in such
cases but also removes the cause of suffer
ing. It relieves by digesting the patient's
food and enabling his system to transform
it into bone and muscle, blood and brain.
It cures by allowing the 6tomach rest until
it is restored to its natural condition.
If the stomach is out of order not an
organ of the body escapes some correspond
ing derangement. There are few diseases
which cannot be traced directly to the stom
ach. If the stomach is weak the body is
weak. If the stomach is strong, the entire
body is strong.
None of us want to suffer from Indigestion
or dpepsia but the hurry and nervous
tension or the times have made them the
commonest complaints of the generation.
Often we eat too fast, too soon after or too
shortly before violent physical exercise or
severe mental strain. Sometimes we are too
busy to eat at all at the proper time and over
load our stomachs when the opportunity
comes. For awhile the abused organ 6tand

Dear Sirs: I have suffered a great deal
from nervous dyspepsia for the last twelve
months. I tried two doctors who said
.they could not cure me, but vour agent
came along and 1 bought some Kodol Dys
pepsta Cure to sell, and decided to try it
myself and I found more relief from that
than anything I have taken. I eat any
thing I want to and improve every day
and it has given my. customers perfect sat
isfaction. I can heartily recommend it to all that
are suffering from Indigestion or dyspepsia
to be the best remedy on the market. Yours
truly, J. W. Smith, Preston, N. C.
Gentlemen: For the sake of suffering
dyspeptics I renderthis testimonial.
After suffering thirteen years from Indiges
tion (neuralgia of the stomach and all its
multiform troubles) and after recelvingtreat
ment from many doctors for the same, I
was induced to try Kodol Dyspepsia Cure,
buying my first bottle in March 1900.
Since that time I have used nearly two
dozen bottles a proof of my faith in its
I have not had one pain since com
mencing its use. Sometimes I can go two
or three days without using it and I con
sider myself in a fair way toward perma
nent recovery. Fraternally yours, J. Ivison,
Gentlemen: A few months ago I gave up
hopeof living and was in such agony from
chronic indigestion that I prayed I might
pass from my suffering. One day I learned
of Kodol Dyspepsia Cur and decided to try
it. I had taken but one teaspoonful of it
when the pain in my stomach ceased. ' That
day I enjoyed a good meal for the first time
in many months.
After taking three bottles of Kodol Dys
pepsia Cure I am as well as ever. It saved
my life and I cannot recommend it too
highly.- Mrs. Alba F. Crawford, Pittsburg,
Gentlemen: I have been troubled witt
indigestion for ten years and have tried
many things and spent much money till I
tried Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. I have taken
two bottles and have obtained more relief
from them than from all the other medi
cines I ever used. I am now feeling
better than I have been in five years ana
feel more like a boy than I have felt in
twenty years. Respectfully, Anderson
