A matter of floating bonds to the
amount' of $25,000 stood between Mo
line and a new opera house this sum
mer. Had the bonds been taken np
an office building, and theatre
building to cost at least $40.
000 would have been erect
ed on the site of the old Auditorium
on Third avenue this summer as it
would have been under roof by this
time. The opera house proposition
came from F. W. Chainberlin. of the
Chamberlin, Harrington, Kindt com
pany, controlling 18 theatres in Illi
nois and Iowa in this vicinity. Mr.
Chamberlin offered to invest $25,000
himself in the building, and he asked
the business men of Moline to float
first 'mortgage bonds to the amount
of $23.0M to provide the remainder of
the fund necessary. The difficulty in
floating the bonds caused the plan to
be given up.

celebration were received aftd the

lius, mayor of Joliet and one of the
speakers at the celebration of last
week Monday, had generously declin
ed any remuneration for bis services,
not even presenting a bill for his ex
penses. This was an exceptional
courtesy, from the fact that Mr. Cro
lius is an anti-pass man and follows
the principal of paying his own ex
penses rather than accept the priv
ileges that the railroads willingly
grant public officials.

Principal Thomas has laid down
stringent rules for athletic qualifica
tion at the high school. Those who
aie ambitious to play on either the
first or second eleven or even on a
class team must carry 13 hours of
passing work, must show a doctor's
certificate as to their fit physical con
dition and must have the written con
sent of their parents. To pass in 15
hours' work a student will be compell
ed to devote himself to close study,
and the rule will have a- tendency not
ohly to keep out of school the boys
who attend for athletics only, but to
encourage hard study by delinquent
pupils. The physician's certificate is
designed to keep out students who
are not strong of body and the par
ents certificate to relieve the school

Spring- and Summer than at any other season. When
the blood is charged with tlric Acid, Alkali and other
irritating poisons, thett the. system is in the right
condition for Rheumatism to develop, and an attack
is liable to come at any" time, "Winter or Summer.
Rheumatism, because it attack 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.rnercurial and sciatic, but it ia
the same old acid blood that causes all. Some are
constant sufferers,- while others have only occasional spells of Rheumatism,
but either kind is wearing upon the constitution, and in time produces,

the blood settle upon the valves of the
heart and ends suddenly and fatally.
It won't do to let Rheumatism
run on. It is a dangerou3 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
is nappiiy reiievea irom tae cusconuoxxa

- S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy,
does not contain any Potash or mineral

safety by old and young.
