"It seemed that nothing short
of a miracle could save my little
daughter from an . untimely
death," says City Marshall A.
H. Malcolm, of Cherckee.Kan.
" When two years old she was
taken with stomach and bowel
trouhle and despite the efforts .
of the best physicians we could
procure, she grew gradually
worse and was pronounced in
curable. A friend advised
and after giving it a few days
she began to improve and final
ly fully recovered. She is now
past five years of age and the
very picture of health."

Change of Location Dae to an An

Ix xmtcu, Neb., Oct. 13. The vil
lage of Denton, a few miles from here,
lias decided to move. This does not
mean the inhabitant alone. The build
ing's, houses and stores, besides nil the
personal effects, will float down the
Platte river for three miles to a loca
tion which the village prefers to Its
present one. Nothing will be left be
hind except the natural scenery, which
was there when the village was built.
' The decision to move came with the
announcement of the Union Facittc
railway that a new town, Darr, con
taining n large mill and elevator, would
be established at the point where the
line crossed the riatte river. This is
three miles down stream from the pres
ent group of houses called Henton.
Due to a Kallroad Announcement
When an agent of the Union Pacific
presented the matter in the right light
the citizens of Henton saw that they
were living in the wrong place and
they decided to move and be In on the
ground floor of the new town.

POTATOES GE0WING SCAECE
Farmer Says Very Little Land in Connly
M in liaise Paylnar Crop f
About this time in ordinary years
aionjr country roads leading to th
city at daylight each morniiijj wac
cms heavily laden with potatoes are
wont to be found making their labor
ious way to market, while near sun
down in the evening the same wagons
are usually found rumbling home
ward to be loaded at night and bring
another cargo to town on the mor
row. Ordinarily there are few fine
days in the middle of October that d
not see at least a dozen loads of tu
bers standing on Market square or
being peddled out along the streets.
Hut the situation is altered thi:
year. According to those who keep
close watch of the market not a lond
of late potatoes raised in the coun
try lying near the city has been sold
here this fall. Some early ones have
been placed on the market, but they
do not count when the time comes t.
put "Murphies" in the cellar for win
ter use. It is not because the tops of
the late crop have been kept' green
by the wet weather, delaying the
ripening process, for all the vines In
this section have been dead since ear
ly in September. Neither is wet
weather, preventing the harvest, and
bad roads preventing hauling to mar
ket, responsible. There are practic
ally no late potatoes to come to
market within hauling distance of
the city and those there are will be
for the' most part absorbed by the
farmers who have none and the small
towns and villages where facilities
for shipping in northern grown po
tatoes are not as good as they are
The peculiarities of the situation
led u man who grows tubers and who
has been watching the potato mar
ket for years past to remark today
that he believed the days of the home
raised potato for the people of Hock
Island are practically over. "There
has been a constant tendency during
the past few years." he told an Argus
reporter, "to red net the acreage of
potatoes in this locality, and this is
true especially last year and this.
The fact is that there is very little
land in Kock Island countv tod;i
that will raise a paying crop of tu
bers from year to year. When the
land was new it was different. On
the other hand it is as easy to raise
goid crops of corn as ever and lately
a given acreage of corn has yielded
larger eaxh returns than the same
unount of ground planted to pota
toes and has been vastly less trouble
in raising, harvesting and marketing.
"We are not, strictly speaking, in
the potato belt here, and farmers are
beginning to find out that they can
not compete with the growers in the
north, where larger crops ami a bet
ter ' quality can be produced. Of
course truck farmers will continue
to raise enough of the early varieties
to supply the demand in the summer
and early fall, but in view of the rea
sons I have given I feel safe in pre
dicting that the bulk of the Irish
vegetable will more and more as the
seasons roll by, be brought in by rail,
while what few potatoes are produc
ed in the adjacent country will go to
supply the needs of the people
through Mercer county, in the great
er part of which it is impossible to
raise them even in quantities sutli
cient for family use."

ARMOURS PAY $20,000
FOR OPERATION ON CHILD
Dr. Adolf Lorenz. the famous Vi
ena surgeon, performed his $20,000
operation on Iolita Armour, a 5-
year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J
Ogden Armour, at Chicago, Sunday,
and announced his belter that a cure
He said the child, who hud bee'i
unable in walk since her birth, owing
to eongentital dislocation of the hip
joint, would run about and play ha
oiner children witnin six mounts, and
that she could stand upon her feel
before the end of two Weeks.
In the presence of five physicians,
three of whom assisted at the lime.
the delecate surgery was performed
at 10 o'clock in the morning in the
Armour residence. The lime con
sumed was two hours. Ktlier was ad
ministered although there was but
little pain under the deft manipula
tion of the Viennese.
The right leg of the little invalid
from the hip to the knee joint is nnv
in n plaster cast. -The cast will hold
the thigh bone within its socket until
it grows accustomed to the position.
For actual labor done. Professor Lo
renz will be paid at the rate of $10.-
000 an hour. Hut while the operation
lasted -but twr hours, the surgeon
came thousands of miles to perform
it. The fee is one of the largest in
the annals of surgical practice.
Mrs. Armour, who with her hus
band, was in a room adjoining the op
eration, is said to have wept joyous-1
Iy when told that her child could
The surgeon, with a record of a
thousand operations by his bloodies
process, none of which he says was a
complete failure, is staking a world
wide reputation on his assertion.
With him during his work were Dr.
Friedrieh Mueller, his regular as
sistant; Dr. Dexter Ashley, of .New-
York, a former pupil; Dr. John lied-1
Ion, of Kvanston, who performed the
operation on Lolita Armour eigh
teen mouths ago. and l)rs. 11. ('.
Miller and Frank Hillings, of Chicag..
While the parents, alternately fear
ful and buoyed with hope, waited in
the other room, the little daughter
was stretched upon an operating ta
ble. A belt of wool was then tittd
around the thigh and connected with
n steel screw which was fitted to the
foot lf the operating table. Another
belt was put aroun I the pelvis and
fastened to the head of the table.
The screw was then turned gradu
ally, drawing the thigh bone down
little by little, the pelvis bandage pre
venting the rest tif the body from slid
ing down in the same direction. When
the head of the femur had been pull
ed down an inch or more, until op
posite its socket, the operator took
the limb in his hands, and by expert
manipulation worked the head int-j
the acetabulum or socket.
The thigh bone was then placed a
right angles to the pelvis, and when
in that position was covered with :i
plaster of paris cast. The right leg
will be' kept apart from the other, to
be gradually brought to its proper an
gle as its condition justifies.
Instead of being kept quiet the pa
tient will be encouraged to walk, the.
theory being that each time the foot
of the iiltlicted leg strikes the floor
and bears the weight of the body the
head of the thigh fits more securely
into the socket, and in cases where
the socket is not well developed act
ually digs or batters out a socket for
One of the most certain signs that
all has gone well and the best augury
for the success of the operation is the
distinctly audible noise which the
head of the femur makes when it slips
nto the socket. This sound, heard
by the highly trained ear of Prof. Lo
renz, caused hint to make the decla
ration that he had no doubt of suc
cess. FOUND IT OUT.
Many a Kock Island Citizen Is FlmlinK It
A backache always means kidney
trouble. The beginning is always
the backache. The ending may be
Hright's disease. Head the following
case of a Hock Island citizen, who
found the remedy in time:
Louis Hange, of 728 Seventeenth
street, retired, says: "There is noth-
ng like experience to prove the real
worth of a remedy. For years I suf
fered from kidney troubles, tried dif
ferent remedies and tised plasters,
but I got no relief that was perma
nent until I tised Doan's Kidney Pills.
There was a weakness and such ter
rible pains through my kidneys that
I could not sit down or get up with
out feeling terrible shooting twinges.
Whenever I caught cold it always set
tled in my kidneys and aggravated
the pain. One dny I was complain-
ng about my back to Mr. Wivill, of
1511 Seventh 'avenue, and he told me
that Doan's Kidney Pills had cured
his backache, and he advised me to
try them. I bought a supply at Mar
shall & Fisher's drug store, in all
five boxes, and I found them just as
my friend had represented. They
relieved the pain in my back and re
stored the action of the kidneys,"
