There is no let up in the sccity tt
engines and men to run them on the
Hock Island. Lack of sufficient mo
tive power to handle the great amount
of freight that the road is called upon
to transport leads to frequent delays.
The engines are overworked as truly
as the crews are, and there is not
time to give them sufficient attention
at the round houses to keep them in
the repair that is necessary for them
to make the exacting schedules. Here
and elsewhere along the line firemen
are being- promoted to engineer-1-most
as rapidly as they cuu become
sufficiently familiar with the duties
of that responsible place to render
them capable of passing the required
The - condition is mainly, but not
entirely, due to the unprecedented
freight business of the present fall
and the competition that there is be
tween the big lines in handling it.
This is so great that in some places
railroad men tell of passenger trains
being sidetracked for freights. The
morning Imrlington train from the
north is chronically an hour late and
has been for many weeks, a condition
that is ascribed to heavy freight traf
fic in the north that interferes with
Hut there is another reason back of
the scarcity of men that is not gen
erally realized by the public. The
railways are short of material for en
gincmen. Only the most perfect
specimens of manhood will do and
the work put upon them is so severe
and the regulations under which they
work ore growing so strict that even
the high wages that are paid fails to
attract enough men of the right kind
to the road. The question of men is
recognized as a more serious one than
that of mechanical difficulties in the
way of faster schedules.

FOR FIREMEN'S FUND
Crowded House at the Moving
EXHIBITION PROVES FINE SUCCESS
Interspersed With Illustrated Song.
Nice Sum Real
A crowded house greeted the mov
ing picture exhibition put on at the
Illinois theatre last evening under
the auspiees of the Rock Island fire
department and for the benefit of the
firemen's relief fund. The films were
from the Selig Polyscope company, of
Chicago, and the exhibition was tin
der the management of J. F. Shank.
The exhibition was interesting from
beginning to end, und it was inter
spersed with illustrated songs by lit
tle Maureen Knglin and by Fred Da
vis. The former sang "Hello. Central,
(Jive Me Heaven," anil upon being re
called gave 'The Holy City."
The tilnis were clear and were put
on in good order. Manj- interesting
scenes in city and country all over
the land were vividly shown and the
audience was in turn whirling dizzily
through the chasms, gorges and tun
nels of the Roeky mountains on the
pilot of a locomotive, witnessing a
naval review at sea and traveling
down a crowded street on a cable car
while the metropolitan fire fighting
apparatus was going past at headlong
Fanny Scene Pretented.
Between such scenes as the above
there were humorous situations de
picted in which the camera had been
tricked into representing absurdities
and impossibilities with all th. fidel
ity of the real and the true. As an il
lustration of this, who would suppose
for an Instant that the photographer
would oe willing for the sake of hav
ing a moving picture taken of him of
standing with his camera in the mid
dle of the track and being knocked
galley west by the approaching train?
Vet such things were seen.
The greatest enthusiasm was man
ifested when the Rock Island fire de
partmcnt was shown bursting out of
the Central engine house and tearing
down the street to a pretended fire.
Second avenue was shown as seen
from the front of a street car. and
the drill team of Camp 26, M. W. A.,
was exhibited drilling.
To lie Repeated.
The exhibition will be given with n
change of program in all but the lo
cal pictures at the Illinois theatre to
morrow afternoon, the proceeds to be
turned over to the firemen's benefit
fund as before, and the prices, for
this occasion wfTI' be reduced to" 10-,
20 and 30 cents.
Or New Catarrh Core.
A large and constantly increasing
majority of the American people are
catarrh sufferers. This is not entire
ly the result of our changeable cli
mate, but because modern investiga
tion has clearly proven that many
diseases, known by other names, are
really catarrh. Formerly the name
catarrh was applied almost exelusive-
lv to the common nasal catarrh, but
the throat, stomach, liver, bladder,
kidneys and intestines are subject to
catarrhal diseases as well as the na

membrane there is a feeding ground
The usual remedies, inhalers, sprays,
douches or powders, have been prac

more than teniiornry relief was con
cerned, because they simply dry up
the mucous secretions without hav
ing the remotest effect, upon the
blood and liver, which are the real
sources of catarrhal diseases.
It has been known for some years
that the radical cure of catarrh could
never come from local applications,
but from an internal remedy, acting
on the blood and expelling the ca
tarrhal poison -rom the system.
A new internal preparation which
has been on the market only a short
time, has met with remarkable sue

Dr. Ainslee in speaking of the new
catarrh cure says: "I have tried the
new catarh remedy, Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, upon thirty or forty patients
with remarkable satisfactory results.
They clear the head and throat more
effectually and lastingly than any
douche or inhaler that I have ever
seen, and although they are what is
called a patent medicine and sold by
druggists, I do not hesitate to rec
commend them as I know them to be
free from cocaine and opiates, and
that even a little child may use them
with entire safety."

AN OLD COLD
Is Catarrh, and Catarrh Leads
The tendency of catarrh of th head
is to pass downward through the bron
chisl tubes to the Inngs. Any one who
has had catarrh of the head for a year or
more finds the disease gradually pro
gressing downward. In some cases th.
progress Is rapid, and in other cases it la
slow; but sooner or later if catarrh is
allowed to run, it will go to the lungs
and set up the disease known as con
sumption. It is doubtful if consumption
is ever caused by anything except ca
The catarrh usually begins as a cold in
the head or throat, and is neglected until
it becomes chronic; then it begins to
dawn on the victim that he has catarrh.
Unless he is very foolish indeed he will
not rest easy until the catarrh is entirely
cured. Thousands pay no attention to
it until it is too late.
Mrs. 3. Priest, Lee, Mich., writes : " I
think there is no medicine on earth that
excells Peruna. My husband won't take
any other. We . have tested it and it
worked a great change in my son's
health last spring when we thought he
was going into consumption. We gave
him only one bottle and he was all right.
I tell everybody about how much good
it has done us. My husband says he
can't do without it. As for myself it
saved me seven years ago from going
blind. I could not see to read one word
for six weeks. I thonght I should surely
lose my sight. I commenced taking Pe
runa and by the time I had taken one
bottle I could see to read as well aa ever.
