ACCOUNT OF MUDDY WATER
One hears a great deal of complaint
about the city water these days.
'there is license for it. Superintendent
I'. T. Rancrcft admits, but he has
nothing to effer in the wav of relief
before the river settles.
With the breaking up of the ice the
water became muddy and this condi
tion will prevail until the spring rains
cease. The result has been that the
three filters at the reservoir have been

April Z. "A Montana Outlaw."
April .V "Deserted at the Altar."
"A Montana Outlaw," a western
play put out by 'Warner Altman,
has for its hero a cowboy, "Jack the
Raster," who i.s called upon to per
form all sorts of thrilling things. The
character is handled in a new wav
and is more refined than the average
cowboy hero. In the end he turns out
to be a person of some importance.
He rides a trained brunch in several
of the scenes, and in one of them res
cues his employer from lynching, ar
rhing just in time to sever the rope
with a shot from his rifle. Through
out the play runs a pretty love story.
The action takes place- in the Koote
nai valley of Montana, and the char
acters show the types of that locality.
One of Ihe features of interest is the
stage coach used in one of the acts.
This historic old vehicle is said to
have seen actual service in the rough
times of the west. "A Montana Out
law" comes to the Illinois Sunday.
In Percy (I. Williams' great produc
tion. "Deserted at the Altar," there is
a fire scene that is said to surpass
anything of the kind ever seen in n
play. It happens in the third act,
Ihird scene; New York is seen across
the river from Iloboken, iu the moon
light; waves are heard to ripple,
lights are seen to glimmer, whistles of
ferry boats are heard, and the tramp
ship Katie is seen broadside on at the
Iloboken dock. There are several
thrilling scenes, including an automo
bile ride, with pursuit by a bicycle,
and panoramic views. A burning
boat also plays a prominent part.
The villain. Harrow, and the deserted
bride. Nellie Horsey, his innocent and
virtuous victim, are on the ship. Har
row is kidnaping her. running away
with her to the West Indies. Sudden
ly a Hame is seen in the dock shed.
The awful cry of "fire" is heard. The
fire grows into flames and leaps at
the ship, whistles blow, fire bells ring,
captain and crew are panic-stricken,
pails and rigging are devoured by
flames, an immense crowd gathers on
the dock, fire engines come tearing on
the scene, the hawser of the ship is
cut as she swings out into the North
river. The dock is alive with flames.
Nellie, the little heroine, appears at
one of the port holes, and the several
heroes jump into a boat, row out to
the burning snip and she is literally
dragged from the vessel and saved.
Thrilling is said to be no name for it.
These doings will be on here next
Colds Cause Pneumonia,
One of the most remarkable cures of
a cold, deep-seated on the lungs, caus
ing pneumonia, is that of Mrs. Ger
trude E. Fenncr, Marion, Ind., who
was entirely cured by the use of One
Minute tough Cure. She says: "The
coughing and straining so weakened
me that I ran down in weight from
US to 92 pounds. I tried a number of
renidies to no avail until I used One
Minute Cough Cure. Four bottles of
this wonderful remedy cured me en
tirely of the cough, strengthened my
lungs and restored me to my normal
weight, health and strength." Sold by

The fight for the nomination for
governor on the republican ticket is
narrowing down to the final spurt.
Although Yates is in the lead, the
combinations which will le brought
to bear against him may prove too
strong. The governor, unbacked by
the millions at the disposal of other
candidates and with the Chicago
press, the federal patronage and six
candidates against him has made a

tor, congressman or revenue man has
more politics in his anatomy in a
minute than all the game wardens
and professors in the state.
The strength of the governor's op
ponents has been thrown in the last
few weeks to stirring up contesting
delegations in counties which they
could not in whole or in part control.
This is a simple proposition, and
means that a great fear is upon them
that the governor might possibly or
ganize the state convention and be
nominated on the first ballot.

There are seven counties besides
Rock Island in which contests al

The organization of the state con

committee on credentials which will

now. One member of the committee
is named from each congressional dis

which are in Cook county." Outside of

So far there have been 83 conven

delegates chosen. Of these 3S0 are
claimed for Yates, 2i"2 for other candi
dates and 150 unassigned. Instruc
tions have been given for Yates in
counties having 234 delegates against
127 for all others, giving Yates a ma

Well-posted politicians are crediting
Deneen with more strength in Cook

him. It is stated that he 'will control

There is but one more match be

Proper Treatment for Paramenia
Pneumonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although he may have the
proper remedies at hand. A physician
should alwa3's be called. It should be
borne in mind, however, that pneu
monia always results from a cold or
from an attack of the grip, and that
by giving Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy the threatened attack of pneumo
nia may be warded off. This remedy
is also used by physicians in the treat
ment of pneumonia with the best re
sults. Dr. W. J. Smith, of Sanders,
Ala., who is also a druggist, says of
it: I have been selling Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and prescribing
it in my practice for the past six
years. I use it in cases of pneumonia
and have always gotten the best re
sults." Sold by all druggists.
