C. II. Pope, president of the East
Moline company, is very -sanguine in
regard to the prospects of hast Mo
line. The beginning of work on the
Kock Inland shops at Pleasant Valley
has caused a revival of ac
tivity in that vicinity, and
capital is looking that way for
investment. Oeorge XV. Kuss, of Chi
cago, has been secured by the East
Moline company as manager, ami un
der his direction new enterprises are
to be undertaken looking to the fur
ther development of that suburb.
'The geographical advantages of
East Moliue are not fully appreciated
by our people," said Mr. Pope in an
interview. - "I speak only the naked
truth, as I see it, when I say it is the
natural center of the great industrial
west. I have given this subject con
siderable thought . and have studied
conditions as thej- exist generally
throughout the west, and it is my
judgment that within the territory
mentioned, manufacturing has only
begun, and that the industrial cities,
well located within this agricultural
area, will, within the next ten vears.

pressed himself as follows: "P.efore

informed myself on the Kock Island

this community. As I understand it,
they contemplate not only very ex

DANDRUFF CAUSED BY-GERM
A New Dlscorery That Kills the Germ and
Pretty nearly all the hair prepara
tions for dandruff have some merit
in allaying itching of the scalp and
in being a fairly good dressing for
the hair, but there is only one that
recognizes what causes dandruff, fall
ing hair and baldness, and that de
stroys the cause, a little germ and
that is Newbro's Herpicide. This
germ eats its way into the scalp,
down to the hair root, where it saps
that vitality, jcausing dandruff as it
digs up the scalp into little white
scales. Unless it is destroyed there
isno permanent stopping of falling
hair and cure of dandruff and bald
ness. . Newbro's Herpicide kills the
germ. "Destroy the cause, you re
move the effect." For sale by T. II.
