At Ihe hearing before Justice t'le
laml yesterday afternoon Karl Mur
ray an.l Charles Ilarroun. the former
of uhoiu was found by Otticer Hi'inii
emerging from a basement window
at A. 1). Huesing's bottling establish
ment Sunday afternoon, were releas
ed, the justice declaring after hear
ing both sides of the question, that
he had no doubt the boy was in the
basement, but that he believed he
went there without any wrong inten
tion. The police. who have been
watching the Murray boy for some
time, are somewhat disgruntled over
the action of the justice.

Justice Schriver yesterday after
noon continued the abandonment case
of Mrs. Amelia Merk against her hus

Justice Cleland dismissed t fie case
against James Murray an.l Charles
Johnson, whom Officers Brinn and
Carlson claim to have caught in the
act of going through the pockets of
August Millard, an old German from
Colon a. Sunday night. There was
little doubt from the evidence of the
guilt of the prisoners, but upon the
old man's saying ho did iit want to
see the prisoners locked up the case
was dismissed.- The action of the
justice is leiiig criticised by the Jn
lice on the ground that the prosecu
tion was in the hands of the people
ami the wishes of the prosecuting
witness had nothing to do with it.

There was a cleaning out at -the

among the things that were brought
out and consigned to destruction
were a number of the gruesome relies
that were gathered to use ns evidence
in the I'.astian murder case. There

There were two pieces of cornstalk

ami which still showed marks of

FINE MUSIC AT MAY
FESTIVAL THIS WEEK
The seat sale for the May festival
to Ik held at the Illinois Friday even
ing ami Saturday afternoon and even
ing of this week opens tomorrow
morning at Lloyd's, and the indica
tions are that there will be a lively
rush. It is rarely that such an array
of notable talent as has been secured
for the festival is seen in Bock Island
at one time, ami doubtless the public
will improve the opport unity of at
tending one or all of the perform
ances. Theodore Spiering and the
stfloists accompanying him are play
ing a short series of engagements in
this section Cedar. Rapids, Dubuque,
Clinton and a few other cities, and it
has been entirely due to the efforts
of Mrs. (J. Raw-son Wade that they
were brought to Rock Island. The
public should show its appreciation
of what she is titling in the line of
"odd music by fillingr the Illinois at
the three performances.

Perfection of Form, Feature, and
Mind Render Women All-Power-,
ful. Health, However, the Great
AVomans greatest gift is the power to inspire admiration, respect,
and love. Ihere ls a beauty in health tvhieli is more attractive to men
than mere regularity of features.
The snap and spirit -which health gives to the eye, the movement,
and the speech are full of magnetism.
Sickly -women can't understand this.
They only know that they are miserable, and their efforts to bo
attractive are languid and weak.
Woman's influence in the world is limited by her strength and the
strength of health is real strength.
It brings with it beauty and grace and loveliness of disposition.
To be a successful wife, to retain the love and admiration of her
husband, should be a woman's constant .study. If she would be all she
niay, she must guard well against the signs of ili health.
Regular and painless menstruation is absolutely necessary.
The help w hich L,ylia K. lMnklmm's Vosretublo Compound gives
to women who aro attacked by any disorder of the feminine organism is
reaL iermanent help. It cures all weaknesses of the organs and makes
it possible for women to retain their health and beauty to maturity.

A Boston Woman's Experience.
"Peati Mrs. Pinkham: I feel very grateful to yen for the benefit I
derived from your kind adrieo an J remedies. I was troubled with a compli
cation of femalo troubles, had ovaritis, painful and irregular menstruation,
leueorrhma., nervousness and weakness, I had no appetite and could not
sleep nig-hts. The least exertion would cause shortness of breath and dull
pains in my lups and side. The doctors ail advised me to have an operation
and have one of my ovaries removed, bnt this J could not bear to think of. I
was induced to try Liydia 12. IMnkliam's Vegetable Compound, and
after taking the first bottle I was much, improved. It renewed my appetite,
health and strength. I continued taking it, also your Blood Purifier and
Sanative Wash until entirely cured of all my troubles. The pains have never
returned and my health is splendid. . Your remedies have been a boon to me
and I am sure many a woman owes her life to them." JIakie AVtun, 25G
Columbus Ave., Boston, Mass. (March IS, 1001.)
No other medicine in tho world lias received such widespread
and unqualified endorsement.
No other medicine has such a record of cures of femalo
troubles or such hosts of g-ratoful friends. Itcmeiiiber this when
