San Francisco presents an extraor
dinary and significant new phase of
the labor problem. For two years past,
while other cities have been having
serious industrial conflicts, not one of
importance has occurred there. With
the introduction of Hostetter'a Stom
ach Bit ters. over fifty years ago, a new
phase in curing stomach ills was pre
sented, and during those years it has
demonstrated its wonderful curative
powers so conclusively that it Is now
recognized everywhere as the leading
family medicine in the world. For
poor appetite, coated tongue, bad
breath, sour stomach, constipated bow
els, indigestion, dyspepsia, insomnia,
or malaria, fever and ague, the Bit
ters is unequaled. Be sure to try it.
The genuine has our private stamp
over the neck of the bottle.
Frank Whittier. of 1313M: Seventh
avenue, may believe himself to be a
victim of the hoodoo "13." that ill-
omened number occurring twice in
his house number, as may be seen. At
any rate. Mr. Whittier, who formerly j
was employed as a driver for the D. i
M. Sechler Carriage company, is now
out of a job and being unable to find
work grew despondent, his despond
ency yesterday resulting in an at
tempt to commit suicide by swallow
ing carbolic acid. Mr. Whittier walk
ed into the room where his wife and
a number of neighbors were seated,
drew a phial from his pocket and. re
marking "Well, I might as well die
now as any time, tried to swallow
the contents of the bottle. In the
scramble that ensued the bottle was
wrested from him, but its contents
were spilled upon several people who
received bad burns from the acid.
Charles Erickson, who resides near
Mineral Springs, met with a very
painful accident yesterday. He was
felling trees near his home, when in
some way he caught his foot and a
tree fell on him, breaking the member
in three places and crushing it very
badly near the ankle. The ambulance
was summoned and the unfortunate
man taken to the city hospital. Dr.
West was called, and with the assist
ance of Dr. Wyland amputated the leg
below the knee.
All the male voters assembled at
the church Thursday evening to make
their selection of a pastor to succeed
Rev. C. A. Hemborg. Dr. L. A. John
son, of St. Paul, was named and the
vote was unanimous in favor of ex
fending a call to him. Dr. Johnson is
well known to the members of the
church, they bavins had the pleasure
of hearing him speak at the Augustana
trraduation exercises this spring. He
is considered to be one of the ablest
ministers in the I'nited States who
preaches the Swedish Lutheran doc
trine. He speaks the Swedish. and Eng
lish languages very fluently and this
is Jtme of the many reasons why the
congregation in this city wants him to
come here. Dr. Johnson has been
pastor of the Lutheran church in St.
Paul for 10 years, and if he accepts
the local church will feel highly grat
Moline paid homage to a king and
queen Thursday afternoon and last
veiling. But railier than suppliance
to royalty, the gala event on the
Stephens lawn was a tribute to the
beauty of childhood. Incidentally it
was to raise money for the Union
mission and the results of the two
days' entertainment show a goodly
iUm netted to this worthy institution.

A lad from La Salle and two com
panions from Streator, the eldest not
more than 14 years of age, drifted into
Moline yesterday. The three have left
'heir homes and are having a "bum."
The LaSalle youngster entered the
home of a Thirty-fourth street resi
dent opposite Nalick Y. M. C. A., and
Hnding only two little children at

payment. The housewife returned
from a neighbor's a few moments
later, and on being told what the boys
had done, telephoned to the police.

Chicago, found I he boys in Daven

the officers that he lived here and was
even so well versed in the art as to
tell them that his father would be
along in a short time with some fish.
He said he lived in a little shanty
boat up the river. He got away all

exposed him. Tl. - were told to make
