BURNED TO DEATH
s sAFTER MAYER
There is a reason, and the best kind of a
reason; why Ayer's Hair Vigor unakes the hair
grow long and heavy.
It is a hair-food. It feeds the hair and makes
it healthy and strong.
Healthy hair grows, keeps soft and smooth,
dees not split at the ends, and never falls out.
Give Ayer's Hair Vigor to your gray hair and
restore to it all the deep, rich color of early life.

at the time the trouble arose Walker
was a resident of Princeton. He charg
ed Weaver with ixtortion and black
mail, and caused his arrest. The grand
jury, liowevcr. did not consider the
case. Out of this case, in which a man
named Clark Armstrong was involved,
grew the present litigation, which will
cause the present trial of the case to
be intensely sensational.

May Stay in Arizona.
Mayor C. P. Skinner has gained six
pounds during the last two weeks at
Tucson. Ariz. This good news comes
in a letter from the mayor and tells of
the excellent progress he is making
toward recovery after his severe ill
ness. The mayor writes that lie is
thinking of returning here some time
'n April, but the prospects are that he
will make no move without the full
consent of his physician. Influences
may yet succeed in making the mayor
a permanent resident of Arizona. He
has already been offered an excellent
!osition in a bank, but this was declin
ed on the advice of his physicians. If
the opening offers itself and other
things are favorable it is more than a
possibility that Arizona may become
the mayor's permanent location.
Mystery Unsolved. -
John Ixckner, the young man who
disappeared from this city last fall and
for whom the police at the time made
diligent search, has not yet been loca
ted; in fact, no clue which will throw
light on his strange disappearance has
been discovered. A grip containing
his clothes is still unclaimed at the io
lice station. Iockner. it will be re
membered, came here from Milwaukee,
where he had been associated with the
Commercial Collection agency. In this
city he secured rooms in the Kimball
blck and opened what he termed "Thj
Expert Collection agency." A small
gripful of printed membership receipts
for the business which he proiosed to
conduct here testifies to the fact, that
IK?kner must have opened the Molin.?
office with sincerity and a view of per
manency. After Ixckner disappeared
a young woman of pleasing features
and dark complexion visited this city
and made inquiry of the police authori
ties concerning him. It was then learn
ed that Lockner had lain ill in the
Ceneseo house for a week or more be
fore coming to Moline. but nothing fur
ther as to his present whereabouts
could be traced from this clue. In
suit of clothes left by Lockner was a
letter bearing no date, but addressed
to Mrs. Grace Hall, Howell. Mich. In
the letter I.oekncr professes that Mrs.
Hall "will do for him If she looks any
thing like Lillian" and telling her s!u
"will know how he stacks up when she
sirs the white of his eye." He be
moans t he fact that he is not an artist,
mi that he could paint his picture on
the letter paper, and he then refers to
their approaching marriage. From the
tone of the epistle it appears neither
party had ever seen the other. The
case is a strange one.
Petition by Merchants.
Secretary Carstens, of the Retail Mer
chants' association, is circulating peti
tions among the merchants for their
signatures. The petitions relate to the
interstate commerce commission, and
a copy of each will be sent to Hon.
Shelby M. Cullom. Hon. B. F. Marsh
and Hon. A. J. Hopkins. The petition
reads as follows: "We, the undersign
ed members of the Moline Retail Mer
chants association, respectfully peti
tion you to support a measure along
the lines suggested by President Roose
velt in his message to congress, when
he recommended that the interstate
commerce commission be empowered
to revise freight rates and regulations,
the revised rate to go into effect and
stay in effect unless and until the court
of review reverses it; and we further
suggest that the commission be empow
ered to fix the classification of freights
in a manner that will be just and fair
to all persons. We respectfully ask
for your assistance along these lines."

If more than ordinary skill in playing brings the honors of the
game to the winning player, so exceptional merit in a remedy
ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea
sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducive to
the health and strength, so does a perfect laxative tend to one's
improvement in cases of constipation, biliousness, headaches,
etc. It is all important, however, in selecting a laxative, to
choose one of known quality and excellence, like the ever
pleasant Syrup cf Figs, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co., a laxative which sweetens and cleanses the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance,
without griping, irritating or debilitating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing of an objectionable or injurious
nature. As the plants which are combined with the figs in
the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met
with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well
worth considering in making purchases.
It is because of the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS
is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by
physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well
informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain
quality or inferior reputation. Every family should have a
bottle of the genuine on hand at all times, to use when a
laxative remedy is required. Please to remember that the
genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size
only, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of the
company California Fig Syrup Co., is plainly printed on
the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle.
