Officers Moody ami Carlson this

in Davenport. Coates was located in
the colored quarter near Twenty-second
street and Third avenue and was
turned over to the Davenport police.
He was sentenced to 30 days in jail

was passing- along- the street ?n Dav
enport. Coates grabbed the purs
which she was carrying in hfrliand
and ran, escaping for the time being

till the transportation to take them
home could be secured.
The police have be.-n notified by the
local officials of the Koek Island road
that boys have been carrying away
brass car journals from the yards in

The greatest danger from colds and
grip is their resulting in pneumonia.
If reasonable care is used, however,
and Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy tak
en, all danger will be avoided. Among
the tens of thousands who have used
this remedy for these diseases we have
yet to learn of a single case having
resulted in pneumonia, which shows
conclusively that it is a certain pre
ventive, of that, dangerous disease. It
will cure a cold or an attack of the
grip in less time than any other
treatment. It is pleasant and safe to
take. For sale by all druggists.
The Stomach la th Man.
A weak stomach weakens the man,
because it cannot transform the food
he eats into nourishment. Heajthand
strength cannot be restored to any
sick man or w-eak woman without
first restoring health and strength to
the stomach. A weak stomach can
not digest enough food to feed the
tissues and revive the tired and run
down limbs and organs of the body.

Sever Attack of Grip Cured ly One Itottle
of Chamberlain' Cough Remedy.
"When I had an attack of the grip
last winter (the second one) I actual
ly cured myself with one bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Pemcdy," says
Frank W. Perry, editor of the Enter
prise, Shortsville, N. Y. "This is the
honest truth. I at times kept from
coughing myself to pieces by taking
a teaspoonful of this remedy, and
when the coughing spell would come
on at night I would take a dose and
it seemed that in the briefest inter
val the cough would pass off and I
would go to sleep perfectly free from
cough and its accompanying pains.
To say that the remedy acted as a
most agreeable surprise is putting it
very mildly. I had no idea that it
would or . could knock out the grip,
simply because I had never tried it
for such a pucpose, but it did, and it
seemed with the' second attack of
coughing the remedy caused it to not
only be of less duration, but the pains
were far less severe, and I had not
used the contents of one bottld before
Mr. Grip had bid me adieu." For sale
