RIVER SOURCE OF COMMENT
Further reports concerning the ani
mal that has been seen in Rock river
and has mystified the people of Rock
Falls and Sterling have been circula
ted. One has it that a farmer lost a
pig and traced the theft to this ani
mal, which carried it from the pen
and was followed by its strange
tracks to the river bank.
It is argued by some that the crea
ture is on government business get
ting soundings regarding the depth
of the river at that point
in order to make a report as to the
advisability of changing the location
of the government dam. Others claim
that it is an emissarj of some for
eign power, laying torpedoes in order
to threaten the mouth of the Henne
pin feeder in ease this becomes neces
sary. Some Rock Falls people have been
so heartless as to assert that the "ani
mal" is nothing but an old log float
ing on the stream fast on a barbed
wire and bobbing up and down.

thereabouts, a week. Picknell tried to
provide for his family. After a while
he found $7 a week would not pay the

A Word to Sufferersf rom Disease
The age of miracles has past. We
know that everything moves by what
the scientists call immutable laws.
They are unvarying from everlasting
to everlasting. These laws rule alike
the heavenly spheres and the actions
of spheres. Man is particularly sus
ceptible to infractions of these laws
and the usual result is disease or in
jury or death, It is a law that if you
overeat that you will suffer. It is a
law that if you fall down in front of a
moving train you will suffer. And all
of the diseases that afflict mankind
come from the conscience or uncon
scious infraction of some of the laws
that govern the universe. These dis
