At Morbonia hospital Saturday

which he had been a long and patient

The new exchange of the Union

public Saturday night. Froej 8
o'clock until later in the evening a
constant procession of people passed
in and out of the brilliantly lighted

and equipment. This .opening means
the practical, completion of the com

A crook; giving his name as George
. Willis, and bearing every evidence
of being a long time professional, was
arrested Saturday night by Cupt. Con
nel!y at the 15 and 20 cent rooming
house, near Second and Perry streets,
m suspicion that he was a man want
ed for stoUling clothes from W. W.
Ilelmel's saloon and boarding house
on the Rockingham road. Mr. Hel
niel had no trouble in identifying him
as the thief. Shortly after the arrest
a message was received from the Mo
line station saying that a man was
wanted there for stealing an over
coat. A description was given which
tallied exactly with Willis. Acting on
these clues the captain questioned the
man closely, and finally got u partial
confession from him which reveals
one of the sjnoothest games worked
here for some time. Willis took the
goods taken here to Moline and dis
posed cf them there, and while in
Moline stole an overcoat, brought it
to Davenport, and disposed of it here.
The stuff taken at Ilelmel's consisted
of a blue coat and vest, a grav over
coat and a gra- pair of trousers, be
longing to a boarder named Willis.
It seems that the name Willis was as
sumed merely to hide the theft of the
clothes in case of an arrest.

until tlie amount of the fine has beeu
worked out. Albrecht pleaded not
guilty Friday afternoon, but changed
his plea at the second hearing from
the one named to simple assault. He
was found guilty and sentenced. The
prisoner is alleged to have attempted
assault of criminal nature a couple
weeks ago on little Lillie Boswell in
a shed near one of the Ripley street
factories. The sentence is a light one
considering the nature of the crime.
But there was no very strong evi
dence introduced to show that the
prisoner was guilty of-the full ex

law, Albrecht might have been sen

expected to prove of great value to
physician and criminologists. It Is
claimed that it will register acute mel
ancholia and can detect whether crim
inals are telling the truth or the oppo
site. The apparatus consists of a tall glass
jar, half tilled with a colorless solution,
and to which are attached two glass
tubes which pass through an opening
in Its top. One of the tubes has an ap
pliance which fits over the mouth and
the other runs to a glass receptacle
containing purified air.
When the apparatus Is fitted over the
mouth of a person and the breath
passes through the liquid and thence to
the glass receptacle, the varying
thoughts within the mind are reflected
in the changing colors of the liquid in
the jar, this action being due. In brief,
to the effect of the variable chemical
properties of the breath upon the solu

determined what colors reflect certain
moods, such us happiness or melan

Diseases of the skin are due to parasites and not to tainted
blood. Thousands of wretched people become hopeless and desper
ate imagining they have an incurable case of blood poisoning, when
in reality their affliction is simply caused by the activity of a local
parasite, which can be cleared away in a hum-.
The wonderful Di Di D remedy was discovered and formulated
by working on the theory of parasitic irritation and it has never
failed to effect a cure on every case of skin disease. The skin was
created to protect the tenderer tissues beneath. For this reason it is
able to withstand the effect of contact with most impurities. Its
protection is only assailed when living, foreign organisms burrow
into it. Skin diseases can be likened to the eruption created by
ants in making their ant-hills.
The Da D Da remedy quickly and absolutely removes the parasite
without irritation, burning or itching. At the same time it softens
the skin and heals and soothes the afflicted part.
