To Build Robust Health
start at the foundation of life and health. Assist your
organs to do their work properly. Food and drink cannot
nourish if your liver is not working right. Dyspepsia and
Indigestion follow if your digestive organs are out of
order. Constipation cannot exist if your bowels are free.
A short course of Ueccham's Pills will soon put you right
and an occasional one will keep you so.
I EEC HAM'S PILLS
will do more to build up robust health and maintain it than
any other medicine. They have done this, and are con
tinually doing it for thousands all over the world. If you
start now and take BEECHAM'S PILLS occasionally you
will certainly benefit to a remarkable degree. .

"Hughie" Corrigan, one of the deal
ers at the Eldorado on Third street
created a great stir yesterday by re
porting that the saloon safe had been
robbed of 11,000. Detectives were put
upon the case, and a general search
instituted for the supposed thief. It
was later ascertained that upon clos
ing up Mr. Corrigan had placed the
money which was in bills of mostly
large denominations, upon top of the
safe, and then locked the safe, sup
posing that the money was inside.
I'pon opening up lor the day's busi
ness the bartender at the Eldorado
found the money. He concealed it for
a time, merely for a joke, and allowed
Mr. Corrigan and his associates a
good scare before notifying them of
the safety of the money. In the mean
time the city was being scoured for
the supposed thief.

It seems that the ministers or our
sister cities and sfates are very de
sirous of coming to the Plow city and
ngaging in pastorial work. Every day
implications are pouring in from all
net- tho United Slates and from men
who are anxious to fill the vacancy left
by Rev, W. W. Willard. Dp to date
5 or 40 pastors have applied and there
is no telling where they will
cease. Also a number of letters havw
been received from parishioners of the
lifferent churches recommending their
:ninister as one to fill this honored
position. It is not expected to hav
any of the applicants come to Molino
to preach. One of the many will be,
chosen by a committee visiting him.
Though absolutely solvent and able
o pay every stockholder, the Plow
City Building. Loan & Savings asso
ciation may be dissolved by the stock
holders. This is owing to the lack of
interest and confidence in such organ
izations. This has been brought about
mainly through the operations of J. W.
Warr as secretary of the Moline
Building. Savings & I-oan association.
Up to the time of the discovery of
Warr's crooked work there was a
great deal of interest in the Plow City,
which was a new enterprise, and it
was gaining right along. When the
Warr matter was shown up, however,
the people became alarmed, and many
calls were made for withdrawal, and
all were met. The new organization's
prospects wore blighted, and from that
time to tho present there has been a
steady decline in the interest taken.
It begins to look as though the Bur
lington road 1ms something in mind
as affecting the depot situation in
Moline. Indications point to some
thing doing here before long. Last
week an inspection party of division
officials visited the city and spent sev
eral hours here in going over the
present site of the station and in talk
ing over what might be done. Then a
conference was held with Mayor Skin
ner with a view to adjusting matters
for prospective building. As a result
of this visit of railroad men Moline
will again begin to build depots in
air and hope that they will be realized
Polio Ogden, in his biography of Wil
liam H. Prescott, the historian, cites
many passages from the diary showing
Prescott's habit of dogging himself to
bis work by making wagers with bis
secretaries that he would complete a
given task by a certain day, the odds
always heavily against himself.
"Prescott always took this betting on
bis own industry with perfect serious
ness. Sometimes be would radiantly
greet his secretary with: 'You have lost!
Yon owe me a dollar.' And he would
exact payment Occasionally he would,
with woebegone countenance, produce
and pay over to the protesting secre

lost." One elaborately made memoran

had been made "between E. B. Otis
and William H. Prescott. Esq.. the lat

pages of bis History of Peru' in 100
days." The document Is signed Wil
