CONDITIONS IN PEORIA
In these days of exposure of muni
cipal uiuleanliness it has remained
for William Lloyd Clark, of Milan, to
dip into the submerged element in
Peoria and lay bare to a horrified
world facts the, most revolting of all.
They are to be dished up in the nest
issue or Our True Friend, published
at Milan., and in anticipation of the
expose ihe author has issued a circu
lar in which he has the following to
"There will be a thorough exposure
of the gambling- dens, where promi
mnt business men exchange money
over the green cloth. The infamous
Lelaml hotel. and other immoral
boarding houses exposed. There will
be maps and charts showing location
of disorderly houses which receive
police protection. Stories told by
some of the street walkers; how they
contribute to the jxilice for the pur
pose of plying" their profession. Tlie
vile theatres and the variety shows
excised. Weast's and Jacobs' places
exiosed. Scenes' of debauchery w hich
rival the slums of Chicago. Immoral
saloons and whisky drug stores lo
cated and exposed. Licenced cabmen
and employed henchmen of the house
of shan.e. The city government in
league with gamblers, saloonkeepers
and prostitutes. Vile negro dens
which run for 'revenue only' under
the present administration. -Aristocratic
haunts of shame, how they are
run, with histories of some of the
girls. What the editor of Our True
Friend saw on the street-- of Peoria
after the hours of midnight."
Better Than Gold
"I was troubled for several years
with chronic indigestion and nervous
debility," writes- F. J. Creen, of Lan
caster, X. II. "No remedy helped me
until I began using Klectric Hitters,
which did me more good than all the
medicines I ever used. They have al
so kept my wife in-excellent health
for years: She says Electric P.itters
are just splendid for female troubles;
that they are a grand tonic and invig
orator for weak, run down women.
No other medicine can take its place
in our family." Try them. Only 50

The partly finished balls are next

tran.-parent fluid called' "planter eom

cement. This fluid is very adhesive,
and when it 'liters the wind covering
there is n soVdificatmn that prevents
the ball from ever being ' kniocked o-ut

that the coin Kin y guarantees to re

The popularity and increase in the
