readopteil the resolutions by which,
some time ago, it granted the Iowa &
Illinois Railroad company the right to
lay its tracks on the River road from
the Davenport city limits to the north

choose to leave the road for a private
right of way. Tt allows a straight 5-
cent fare to Bettendorf, instead of
the six for a quarter ride provided for
in the former grant, and it is based
upon the provision that the company
must commence actual construction
of its line before June 1 of this year.

stiffness in the muscles and joints, and sometimes the acids thrown off by
the blood settle tipon tne valves 01 me
heart and ends suddenly and fatally.
It won't do to let Rheumatism
run on. It is a dangerous disease, and
you can never tell where it is going to
strike. Home remedies, plasters, lini
ments and such things as produce
counter-irritation, are soothing and
may relieve the pain temporarily, but
the polluted, acid blood cannot be
reached by external applications.
Rheumatism must be treated
through the ' blood, and no remedy
brings such prompt and lasting relief
as S. S. S. It attacks the disease in
the blood, neutralizes the acids, and
removes all irritating poisons and effete matter from the system.
S. S. S. strengthens and enriches the thin acid blood, and, as it circu
lates through the body, the corroding, gnawing poisons and acid deposits
are dislodged and washed out of the muscles and joints, and the sufferer
about their case will receive valuable aid and helpful advice from our
physicians, for which no charge is made. We will mail free our special
book on Rheumatism, which is the result of jears of practical experience in

Rheumatism does not come and go with winter
time always; in fact some suffer more during1 the
Spring and Summer than at any other season. When
the blood is charged with Uric Acid, Alkali and other
irritating poisons, then the system is ia the right
condition for Rheumatism to develop, and an attack;
is liable to come at any time, Winter or Summer.
Rheumatism, because it attacks different parts of
the body, and is sudden or slow in its action, is given
various names such as acute and chronic, muscular,
articular, inflammatory.mercurial and sciatic, but it is
the same old acid blood that causes all. Some are
