THE ARGUS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1905.
j Columbus, Ohio, May 19, 1903.
Some four years ago I was suffering
from impure blood and a general run
clown condition of the system. I had no
appetite, was losing flesh, and had an sil
icone tired feeling that made me misera
ble. 1 bgan the use of S . S. S., and
after taking seven or eight bottles my skin
v as clearedof all eruptions and took on a
ruddy, heallhy glow that assured me that
iny blood had been restored to its nor
mal, healthy con?;.tion. My appetite was
restored, as I could eat anything put be
fore me, and as I regained my appetite
I increased in weight, and that "tirea feel
ing" which worried me so much disap
peared, and I was once again mv old self.
I heartily recommend S. S. 3. as the
best blood purifier and tonic made, and
fctrongly advise its use to all those in need
cif such medicine. Victor Stubbins.

Wheeling, W. V., May 28, 190V
My system was run down and my jomta
ached and pained me considerably. I had
used S. S. S. before and knew what it
was, so I purchased a bottle of it and have
taken several bottles and the aches and
pains are gone, my blood has been cleas
cd and my general health built up. I can
testify to it as a blood purifier and tonic

Indep-ndent Voters Have a Mass
Meeting at Illinois Thea
tre. CRITICISE ATTORNEYGENERAL
3. W. McCaskrin Reviews His Fight
and Says He Believes He
Six hundred voters of the eitj- who
supported George V. McCaskrin for
the legislature. a mass meeting at
the Illinois theatre Saturday evening,
signed resolutions protesting protest
:n? asrainst the opinion of Attorney
Oenoral V. T. Ktejd. which, if it is
sustained by the legislature, will result
in, they allege, their being disfran
chised of half their votes.
The meeting at the theatre was plan
ned by the Independent Voters' club.
The club bore the expense, and at the
conclusion of the addresses passed the
hat with an invitation for all those in
terested in the cause of independent
polities to contribute. About $38 was
subscribed. The stage was decorated
with one of the large flags that the in
lependent legislative candidate raised
last fall. Prof. Y. I.. Read, principal
jf Urown's Business college, was chair
man of the meeting. He said that dur
:ng the afternxn he Lad been warned
1 hat if he had a political future here
t would he best for him if he would
not allow himself to become bo conspic
uously identified with the McCaskrin
blowout. Mr. Read said he was not
ambitious politically, hence he was
free to act on his convictions. He said
he voted for McCaskrin. The fight now
A-as not Me('askrins it had been
hifuri to the shoulders of the people
a ho voted for the independent candi
l;ne by reason of the attempt to take
iway from them half of the votes that
hey cast for their candidate for the
legislature last fall.
IVrmanrut Majorat Timber.
When Mr. McCaskrin was introduced
he was given an ovation. He said that
-:e had nothing to dr with the getting
i! of the meeting. He was merely an
invited guest. He said that he had
been accused of working up the meet
ing for the 'purpose of springing hi;
rn,r. oral candidacy. He wanted it un
derstood that that had long ago been
sprung and it remained in force in-
leliniteiy. The speaker stated that he
was so accustomed to talking in the
open air that he did not. feel just com
fortable with a roof over him. and - e
asked the audience to permit him to
remove his coat. He had freer arm
aeiion with his coat off. He reviewed
the history of the recent strenuous
campaign, and produced the corre
spondence that passed between the
attorney general's office and State's At
torney H. A. Weld and Representatives
Cooke and Magill in reference to the
marking of the ballot. He denied that
he had had anything to do with getting
fite opinion from Mr. Hamlin. Hut the
opinion was right, according to law,
and he read from the statutes to sup
llelleten He Will Mirk.
He had been busy since he reached
Springfield, and "lie thought he would
remain there a few weeks longer. He
:el!oved that he bad right on his side
an 1 that there wire enough members
'f the legislature possessed of a sense
f justice to defeat the attempt being
made to oust him from his seat.
Foliowing Mr. McCaskrin there were
addresses by Attorney Carlstrom. of
Aledo. and J. A. Iogsdon. of Moline.
The latter presenred the resolutions,
which were adopted unanimously. The
theatre was filled.

Prediction That 2,900 Total Would be
Rolled Based on False
Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 20. From the
middle of the day until kmg after midnight-the
bombardment of pins con
tinued at Exposition hall yesterday.
Saturday night Milwaukee had its
fling, yesterday many of the Chicago
teams got into action. The bowling
done was the oft repeated tale of for
rncr tournaments. Many teams, which
find it no great trick to average
around the 9a) mark on their home
alleys, found even a !)) average wat.
beyond their reach on tournament al
leys. It was claimed the pin setting dc
vices would increase the scores, but
so far the totals have not been in ad
vance of those of previous champion
ships. The pred ict ioius that xv 'ZM'j')
total would he rolled this year' appear
to be based on false premises. As
the day wore on the pins appeared to
fall more easily, and by the time more
of the polish gets worn off the drive

Charles W. Heald, 76 years old.
while temporarily deranged mentally
jumped out of a window in the third
story of his home, on Thirty-ninth
street. East Moline. at 7 o'clock yes
terday morning, alighting on his head,
producing concussion of the brain,
from which he died within a half hour,
never regaining consciousness.
Mr. Heald had been acting strangely
for a week. Saturday morning he was
the first one up. as was his custom.
When his daughter followed to the
lower part of the house she saw her
father reeling, and he fell into he;
arms. She carried him bark to his
bed. She told him that she would rise
first yesterday morning and build the
fire. She did so. Presently he joined
her. and he was seized with another
fainting spell, and was again carried
back to his bed. He grew excited, and
said that he wanted to kill himself.
IIn' l.yinK In thr Ynrd.
His wife and daughter "did the best
they knew how to sulnluo him. but
they were powerless to control him.
He broke from them and ran to the
garret, where a tank of water is kept.
Fearing he intended drowning him
self, they went in pursuit of him. and
induced him to come down to breakfast.
Afttr eating a bite he said that he
wished to return to bed. Mrs Heald
and her daughter continued their
morning meal. When they finished
they went to Mr Heald's bedroom to
see how he was getting along. He was
utiosing and they continued their search
through the house. A window of the
garret was found open, and on looliiii i
out they saw his body lying on the
ground beside the house.
They had him carried in the house,
and a physician was summoned, but
n.ithing couid be done for him. Mr.

PETITIONS FOR LOWER
FREIGHT POURING IN
Movement of State Merchants Associa
tion Has Backing of Busi
Petitions signed by practically 4,i:
shippers and retail merchants of Illi
nois have already been received by the
state headquarters of the Retail Mer
chants' association asking Ciov. Deneen
and the railroad and warehouse com
mission to reduce freight rates in this
state. These petitions come from ev
ery section of the state and represent
the small business men more espec
ially. This methiKi of bringing to th
attention of the state government th-
feelings of the business men of the
state nn this subject was adopted by
he Illinois Retail Merchants associa
tion about three weeks ago. Rlank
petitions were sent out over the state
.0 the local associations with request
that they be circulated for signatures.
From a number of the small towns the
petitions bear the names of every bus
iness man who has to pay freight.
The demand for the new rates appeals
o the small towns much more forci
bly than to the larger, for the com
modity rates which are given In Illi
nois in favor of certain towns and
classes of goods do not apply to the
villages and small cities.
It appears now that the raitroal
board will not hear arguments on the
question of reducing freight rates
March 7. The arguments set for that
day will be heard on the motion of At
torney General Hamlin to reopen and
reargue the freight rate case. If the
mc'ion is aliowe-J then a date for the
reargument will be set later in the
The whole subject of Illinois rate
will come up in the Retail Merchants'
