A startling incident is narrated by
John Oliver of Philadelphia, as fol
lows: "I was in an awful condition. My
skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue coated, pain continually in
lack and sides, no appetite, growing
weaker day by day. Three physicians
had given me up. Then I was advised
to use Electric Bitters: to my great'
joy. the first bottle, made a decided
improvement. I continued their use
for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I know they robled the grave
of another victim." No one should

Kid Ammerman, Local Pugilist,
Gives Davenport Favorite an
LOCAL MAN DOES THE FIGHTING
lxKaaod Mill at Turner 1111-Preliminaries
The six-ronnd glove contest, in
which Frank (Kid) Animerman. of
tliis city. apieared against. Hayes
Muiis. of Davenport, at R ck Island
Turner hall last evening, was declared
a draw. The Rock Island lad proved
somewhat of a surprise party to his
friends, in view of his having for an
opponent one of the recognized top
not chers in his class in Ihis section.
The men fought at 131 omuls.
Ammerman did not adopt defensive
tactics, as it was suppose! he would
do. but waded in from the beginning
of the opening round, keeping up a
hcavv head of steam and a continuous
swinging of his, dukes until the finish.
When he vvt nt to bus corner after the
second round, apparently he was shy
on wind, but he recovered, and there
was as much force to his jabs in the
sixth as there was in the first.
Ammerman Strong aa Mixer.
Muhs fiddled and studied Animer
man until the third round, placing an
occasiiuial blow. Whin the mixing
commenced. however. Ammerman's
tock rose, for he demonstrated that
this kind of scrapping wasi his long
suit. .Muhs was the quicker in foot
work, and by his clever side-stepping
and ducking avoided a number of
fierce jabs directed at the jaw and
stomach. Ammerman did not seem to
care much what his opponent was do
ing and in his endeavor to hold up his
own end of the battle stood and took
blow's in the neck, jaw and bread
basket that would have floored a
fighter of ordinary staying qualities.
No blood was drawn by either man.
Charley MeKeever. of Philadelphia,
the lightweight, who is playing a
vaudeville engagement at Davenport
this week, ref creed. Before the scrap
pers were introduced there were the
usual challenges. Buck Timothy offer
ing to meet the winner in behalf of
Kid Hart, of Philadelphia; and Don
Leach, of Moliue. for Rufus Phoenix,
of Moliue. challenging the victor, the
meeting to be at Moliue. Leach's
challenge did not make much of a hit
with the sports gathered at the ring
side, 'lliey gave him the merry, and
one remarked that Phoenix was a
poor sport for insisting on remaining
at his own fireside whenever he had a
Fun la the Prellminarlen.
The real fun of the evening was af
forded by the preliminaries, of which
there were three. Floyd Welch and
Fred Alger, ihijs, of Davenport, went
three rounds. It was held to be a
draw. Two street Arabs introduced
as Davy Johnson, of Davenport, and
Jasper Miller, of (ieneseo. were led to
the center of the ring and the gloves
pulled on their hands. Miller took the
count in the first round, colliding vv it li
a stiff left in a rush to head that he
inai'e on his adversary.
Young Peter Jackson, a curly-haired
colored boy with sweater and over
all jumpers, came prepared for a
hoiisecleaniiig. (ieorge Washington
Jones, a youngster of the same hut
was introduced as his match. Jones,
when he got a bat in the left optic,
thought a batch of stars had been
dropped in through the roof, and he
made for his corner. He said he re-
n-.embered having an engagement with
his daddv. . Peter's brothel, wishing
to avenge the: defeat that, had been
suffered by a member of the family.
was pressed info service, but when he
arrived' at the rope he weakened, and
declined, to fight. Miller, the little fel
low who had fared so disastrously in
his go with Jolmsoii. volunteered to
trv again. lie was attracted bv the
contributions of money thrown from
the audience into the ring for the
fighters. Miller came to the scratch
just once. Then he ran into his cor
ner, remarking: "His arms are too
long for me. I've got no show." He
quit. It was Thought, that Young
Peter Jackson had bested ail the
scrappers in the h.u.-e in his class,
when a vouth in a flannel shirt rushed
from the rear of the hall and mounted
the stage and pulled his coat. He was
known as Moe-e. He was white. There
was another collection, anil after the
money had Iwen split the lads went
at it. They fought three- speedy
rounds. Mose received the most pun
ishment and several times it looked as
though he would keel to the floor, but
in the third he nrst displayed his real
fighting powers, and after a few wal
lops across the face Young Peter
Jackson threw up his hands and cried

STEEET CAR PULLS MIRED
CARRIAGES OUT OF THE MUD
Monday's rain did not improve the
condition of the roads in this vicinity
some of which in places are still well
nigh impassible. While generally the
roadwavs have settled there are hen
and there sink htdes that will be
treacherous fcr weeks, even if the
weather is dry. The bluff district, as
usual, is the worst sufferer from the
Monday while a funeral procession
was passing along Kightecnth ave
nue w st of Twentieth street, three
carriages mired at a particularly bad
part of the road and in attempting to
pull them out. the horses floundered
about and fell. The animals had to be
unhitched and led away. The car
riages might have been there yet had
not the crew of a Lonirview line street
car came to the rescue and with a rope
pulled the carriages out of the mire.
SIMI'I.K WAY TO ( TRI-: DYSPI-'.PSIA.

With Mi o-na there is no bother of

This valuable remedy for the cure of
dyspepsia is in tablet form and is 1 lie
simplest way to cure the disease.
"Just lake one Mi-o-na tablet after

"and in a few days yon will find di

markable remedy is not a mere diges

rea dily assimilated by the svstem. It
aids digestion an 1 regulates and
tn nglhens the whole dig "stive tract,
so that after its use for a short time
healthy and natural action is restored
to the stomach and bowels.
Mi-o-na may properly be termed a

every part of the body fills out with
solid flesh and all the outlines become
