Germ Infected Air.
Malaria is not confined exclusively to the swamps
and marshy regions of the country, but wherever there is
bad air this insidious foe to health is found. Poisonous
vapors and gases from sewers, and the musty air of damp
cellars are laden with, the germs -of -this miserable disease,
which are breathed into the lungs -and taken up by the
blood and transmitted to every part of the body. Then
you begin to feel out of sorts without ever suspecting the
cause. No energy or appetite, dull headaches, sleepy and
' tired and completely fagged out from the slightest exer
tion, are some of the deplorable effects of this enfeebling
malady. As the disease progresses and the blood becomes
more deeply poisoned, boils and abscesses and dark or
yellow spots appear upon the skin. When the poison is
' left to ferment and the microbes and germs to multiply in
the blood, Liver and Kidney troubles and other serious complicatidns often
arise. As Malaria begins and develops- in the blood, che treatment to be
S. S. S. is a guaranteed purely vegetable remedy, mild, pleasant and

Love's young dream has been rude
ly awakened in the case of Mrs.
Marie Blank, and with her 18th birth
day only a few months behind she
has applied to the courts to be re
leased from theTrntefnl bonds of mat
rimony. Mrs. Blank's husband is Al
bert Blank, and she states that he
was married .to him two years ago
next December. In Kock Island the
nuptual vows of the child-wife were
spoken, and then she says .she was
taken away home , only to be beaten
and abused until she could bear it no
longer. From abuse she states that
her husband verged into brutality,
and she states several occasions on
which he has struck and bruised her.
Finally she states that he ordered
her out of their home in Walcott and
she left him never to return. She
states that since that time he has
contributed not one whit to her sup
port and that his brutality has shock
ed her system so that sluv is ill and
feeble and her health is all but gone.
She asks for an absolute divorce and
the right to assume her maiden name
of Marie Thorns.
One of Davenport's sons who is a
member of the husky eleven at Pur
due college, was injured in a practice
game at that college Monday evening,
receiving as his share of the damages
a sprained ankle. The team is pre
paring to meet some of the large
teams in the near future and the
coach is putting the men through
some pretty tough practice, constant
ly keeping his eye on them in order
to pick the best men. Monday even
ing's practice was especiall rough,
with the result stated above. It is
likely, however, that McManus, the
young man in question, will be about
inside of a week.
The Scott County Sunday School
association, before adjournment, de
cided upon Le Claire as its next place

ing a hotel bill at Dubuque, were tk
en back and will have to face their

sheriff of Dubuque county came after
the men and they were handcuffed to
gether and marched to the dejwt,
where they took the train for Du
buque, The officer stated that he did
not know the amount of the bill, but
that he understood that it was a large

Mary Krueger, the girl who has
been missing since Monday and whose
folks had been nearly distracted over
her loss, has been discovered, and now
it develops that she was not carried
off by any bold, bad mnn, but that
she took it upon herself to skip from
the parental roof and launch out in
the wide, wide world for herself. Her
parents received a nice little note
from the daughter, in which she stat
ed that they need not -worry, as she
had gone to Burlington and was well
able to take care of herself. The po
lice officers investigated the matter
and they found that the girl purchas
ed a ticket for Cedar Kapids instead
oi Burlington, so thev have conclud
ed that she intended to lose herself
so that she could not be found if her
folks decided to take stern measures
and bring her back.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wohl, of
West Fourth street, are mourning the
loss of their 3-year-old daughter.

the unwelcome intelligence of the
death there of Mrs. H. II. Benson,
wife of Judge Benson, formerly of

in Graintield. Kans., of late, but' Mrs.
Benson, suffering from cancer, had
gone to Omaha for treatment. She
had a daughter, Mrs. II. II. Rhodes,
residing there, at whose home she
died. Her funeral occurred Monday.
The husband, formerly a well-known

The incorporation of the Davenport
Flour, Feed & Commission company,
and the letting of a contract by the
company to Ohm & Hass for the erec
tion of a $10,000 building which will
be the center for a growing milling
and sales business, are events that
are indicative both of prosperity and
business enterprise. Articles of in
corporation were tiled with the coun
ty recorder yesterday which create
the Davenport Flour, Feed & Commis
sion company, with the following of
ficers: President. II. Xealand; vice
president. II. Wnlff ; secretary, Charles

Bay Smith, who with Cy Brown and
the girl named Anna Monks, indicted
for robbing Pete Parson, was taken
before the judge yesterday and chang
ed his plea from that of "not guilty"
to one of "guilty." ' Smith was not
sentenced, and he will be held until
Brown is tried. Brown; the Indian,
still persists, that he is innocent and
intends to tight the case. If Brown
is convicted he stands a good chance
cf getting several years in the peni
tentiary. When Smith had been
brought up and entered his plea Coun
ty Attorney Neal asked mat he be
placed in another cell so that Brown
and Smith could not see each other
at all. From what is said Smith
claims that Brown has been threaten
ing him ii he ever told any of the
story,' and it is for this reason that
the attorney wanted him removed.
