any shortageii the accounts, of the
postmaster. So far as the records of
the department are concerned there
is no deficiency. What other details

YOUR MONEY RETURNED.
If Hyomei Does Not Cnre Too of Catarrh.
Says T. II. Thomas.
In advertising" ' that he will refund
the money to anyone purchasing a
Hyomei outfit who can say that it
has done them no good in the treat
ment of catarrh, T. H. Thomas means
exactly what this guarantee says.
Of course the percentage of cures
by Hyomei is nearly 100, or else he
could not afford to make this unusual
offer. But if the treatment should
not be adapted to your case there
will be no questions or quibblings
when you go to get your money.
That the beginning of catarrh is
due to the presence of germs in the
air passages is now admitted by every
physician. It stands to reason that
catarrh cannot be cured unless these
germs are first destroyed. The Hyo
mei treatment kills the catarrh germs
even in the minutest air cells, soothes
and heals the irritated mucous mem
brane and makes complete and last
ing1 cures in cases that have resisted
the usual methods of treatment.
Catarrh cannot be cured by medi
cines administered through the stom
ach. Hyomei is the only natural
method and it has made cures that
seem miraculous. An outfit costs but
$1 and consists of an inhaler which
will last a lifetime and sufficient Hy
omei for more than a month's treat
ment. Additional bottles of Hyomei
can be procured for 50 cents.
T. H. Thomas gives his personal
guarantee with every Hyomei outfit
he sells to refund the money if it does
not cure. There is no rik whatever
to the purchaser of Hyomei.

Two new phases for the crusade for
the adoption ,f the kindergarten
course in the public schools developed
at the meeting of the board of educa
tion Tuesday evening. One was the
discovery that no law could be found
which compelled the board to place
the kindergarten proposition on the
ballot in response to the petition, and
it was held to be' entirely at the dis
cretion of the board whether the peo
ple shall vote on the proposition. An
other apparent setback was in the
report of Superintendent Cox set

the Ericsson and Grant buildings and
necessity for relief by opening of
school next fall.

Through the plans of annexation of
territory east of the city, visions of
Greater Moline were drawn Tuesday
evening at the meeting of the Busi
ness Men's association. The recom
mendation of the directors was con
curred in and if was decided to act at
once ami investigate the feasibility of
the addition of the territory east of
the city from Thirty-fourth to the
Watertown road in East Moline and
from the river southward as far as
deemed advisable. This is an area fixe
miles long and a half or more wide.
Methods of advertising the city were
discussed, the thought of the meeting
being that the best way to reach the
people needed here is to get in the
trade papers, esin-cially those relating
to the iron trade and the railway pa
pers. The advertising committee was
instructed to look after this matter.
Herbert B. Taylor, the former well
known Moline young man, son of Mrs.
Mattie Taylor, of Nineteenth street, is
on his way to Moline, after an ab
sence of about ten years. He has
given up army life, having passed
through the Philippine campaign, ex
experiencing the discomforts and
dangers of the front.

faculty of the Conservatory of Music

was more enjoyed than upon his for

Members of the citizens' party
Tuesday evening blamed the lax en
forcement of the city saloon laws for
the death of Lieut. A. E. Braducy.

were denounced in round terms. May

having taken the least recognition of
the matter as demanding official cor

nearly as grave as an individual dis

cure disorders of the liver or kidneys

greatest all around medicine for run
