his feet, leveled a revolver at the actor

The audicrree was in fiu uproar tn

ASPHALT CONTRIBUTES TO

Charles Mcllugh is back from a
trip to Cellar Rapids. He states it has
been well named as the I'arlor City.
While not haing as much as Rock Isl
and, so large a portion of tlie pave

the beauty, cleanliness and durability
of the streets. Mr. Mellngh joins in
the hope shared by many other citi

permitted at least a sainp!e asphalt

FAIR AFFECTIITO ISSUE

News from Springfield is that the
t. Louis fair promises to interfere
with the state conventions of both
parties. There will not be nearly the
usual numlxT of railroad passes given
out. and that win limit the attend
ance. It seems that railroads, to pre
serve the world's fair business, mark
ed a large number of the annual
passes "not pood after May 1." and are
refusing trip passes to the state capi
tal. Even state officials are paying
half fare for their families. As a re
sult there will not be nearly the usual
number of patriots present to shout
and talk for their candidates, unless
candidates pay their constituents

Sterling is likely to be without a

been in a bad way for a number of
years, and tire tiphtinp apparatus has
been allowed to run down till there is
very little of it. much i f what there
is beii:r the property, of the firemen
themselves. The ci ir.pcnsat ion has
been so small that the liremen have

the result is that the department is

The above photograph of Miss Frances Marie
Knowlton shows what care, persistence and a good
hair invigorating tonic will do in the way of pro
ducing hair. This little girl has had Uandenne
applied to her hair and scalp regularly ever since
she was three month of age, with the result that
she now has the longest and most beautiful head
of hair ever possessed by a child of her age.
V ranees Marie is the daughter of Pr. E. W. Knowl
ton, the discoverer of Danderine, q&o Garfield boul.,
Chicago. The doctor says that her hair continues
to grow very rapidly and he is sure it will be long
enough to touch the floor when she standi erect by
the time she is four years old.
