THE AEGUS, FRIDAY, NOVE3IBEI? 20, 1903.
Malaria is not confined exclusively to the swamps
and marshy regions of the country, but whereye 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
biood 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 p.nd
tired and completely fagged out from the slightest exer-

If Hans Thonlsen is at the bottom
of the Mississippi river, as many be
lieve, then the police of Davenport
are mistaken. They believe that the
boy, the last sign of whom was seen
when his hat and coat were found on
a launch on the river a week ago Sun
day, is alive and well. Moreover there
is evidence that would seem to sub
stantiate this iew of the case. In
the first place the continued dragging
of the river by Officer Sanford and hi
assistants resulted in the finding of
not a single clue. Hut more impor
tant than all this, is the statement
made by a traveling man named Wil
son, who telephoned to the police
station that he had sen the Thordsen
boy at Iowa City. He stated that
he knew the young man when in Dav
enport and could not have been mis
taken. Thordsen wns seated in a ho
tel in Iowa City and when Wilson
attempted to get. a better look at him.
Thordsen went out. Another report
was communicated to the police last
night to the effect that a couple of
Davenport boys had seen Thordsen at
West Liberty a few days ago.
Yesterday. Judge Bollinger called

first automobile litigation in the city,
which on account of the lack of laws

whatever the- outcome. It is alleged
by the plaintiff that about 5 o'clock
on the evening of July 23, 1902, the
day on which occurred the Elks' car
nival parade, a decorated automobile
carelessly propelled by the son of the
defendant and occupied by several
persons, frightened the horse Mr. Uey
nolds was driving, with the result that
the hardware man was thrown from
his seat and out onto the pavement.
Mr. Reynolds alleges that as a result
of the accident he was laid up for sev

ture of three ribs and other .hurts
and bruises which caused him to suf

business, for all of which he asks

HUMOR OF THE HOUR
Getting Her Money's Worth.
"I would like a pair of heel plates
put on these shoes, please, and I'll take
some new laces, too," remarked a
j-oung woman recently, walking into
a downtown shoe shop. After the heel
plates had been attached and the old
strings replaced by new ones she walk
ed to the rear of the store, climbed up
into the big chair that was standing In
one corner and had her boots cleaned
and polished by the negro attendant
until they shone like patent leather.
Then, with a thank you to the cleric,
she walked out, explaining volubly to
"These are the greatest people to
buy shoes from In the city. They keep
your shoes shlned free, and it isn't a
little, thin commuter's shine, with no
varnish around the edge of the soles,
but a good one that makes the boots
absolutely impervious to water, so you
don't have to buy rubbers, and thns
you save half a dollar. Besides, they
keep you in laces, and I do wear out
shoe strings so fast that it Is quite a
saving for me In the course of the year.
Then when I buy a pair of dross shoes
I always have the buttons put on with
patent fasteners free of charge, you
understand and so I feel that I get my
money's worth every time I make a
purchase in the store." New York

nually by the fraternities, of which
the D. K. E. is one of the most noted.
Wednesday evening five young men
in the city walked into the Janes res
taurant en Third avenue and each or
dered a sumptuous' meal. The waiter
got busy and soon had the meals out
011 the tables, but the five young men
were nowhere to be seen. Thefood
became cold and still the men did not
show up, so Officers Carlmark and
Claire were notified of the trick. It
was not long before the five fellows
were being led back by the ears and
forced to settle for the meals they
did not eat.
Charles Miller was picked up uncon
scious Wednesday evening on Four
teenth street in front of No. 1 fire
station. He had fallen off a load of
wood and struck the wheel with his
head. Dr. Wessel was called and
found that he had sustained a frac
ture of the left shoulder bone. He
was removed to his home at Twenty

Wednesday afternoon implement
molders of the Moline Plow company
received circulars from Charles Ste
phens, superintendent of the plant,
inviting the men to meet him at his
office Wednesday evening to discuss
the situation. Mr. Stephens made the
molders a proposition to come back
to work, as he wanted to put the
foundry into operation again, and the
men will answer as to their action on
the matter this evening.
In anticipation of the time when
Moline will be on the river in truth,
anil when shipping facilities by-water
will be open after the lock is cut
through the government dani. local
factories are looking ahead to ship
ping their products by water to Eur
ope and South America. Already one
of the companies has sought prices
upon barges which will carry tons of
implements in a safe passage down
the river to the mouth, where the bur
den will be loaded upon ocean-going
vessels and sent onward to the rich
market of South America or the
growing field of trade in European
countries. ' All of the big factories
here have a sea wall, which is admira
bly adapted for river shipping, as the
barges could be lined up along the
tail rare and implements loaded direct
ly from the factories onto the boats.
Contractor A. C. Stouff'er has se
cured of E. D. Kohn the store build

the first floor for the installation of
bowling alleys. Work will begin at
once on an addition of 27 by 7. feet
to the rear, making the total length
of the building lO'.l feet. Four full
length alleys will be installed by the
Brunswick-ltalke Collender people.
and anyone who knows Abe's tate in
the matter of alleys will realize that
only the most perfect workmanship
and best of material will be permit

ready for use about a week befoYe

that the bowler could desire.
