DR. A. W. CHASE'S
If the person subject to attack of diz
ziness or swimming of the head, com
inonjy called vertigo, would only ston
to realize that these symptoms are not
a disease in themselves, not temporary
Aliments, but the plainest sort of warn
ings from nature of grave troubles of
deeper origin, of an exhausted nervous
system of paralysis, the matter woul'
receive prompt attention. Dr. A. V
Chase knew this and provided the cure
in his celebrated Nerve Pill, a medicine
that brings back the glow of health and
strength by its power to furnish just
wnat the illy fed, half starved nervous
system needs, good, rich, wholesome
blood and nerve force or energy.

Hard Roads Legislators Not in
City This Week as
LAW MEETS WITH OPPOSITION
Farmers in Mass Meeting at llliopolis
Enter a Strong Pro
test. The subcommittee of the legislative
committee on hard roads did not reach
Rock Island this week, as it was prom
ised that it would. Chairman L. M
Magill wrote stating that he expected
to have his committee here during the
meeting of the board of supervisors,
and suggested that there be held a
mass meeting of the farmers of the
county to ootain tneir views on tne
measure pending before the assembly,
by which townships can have half the
cost of the building of the roads borne
by the state. The committee probably
will be here later.
It appears that the farmers of the
state are unanimously in favor of the
building of hard roads under the plan
given in the new law. A mass meeting
was held this week at llliopolis, at
which the following resolution was
KsploitlnK of Kannern,
Whereas, We, the farmers of Sanga
mon. Iyjgan, Macon and Christian coun
ties have learned that a bill is now
pending in our state legislature for
the purpose of compelling, or inducing
the farmers of central Illinois to build
hard roads; and whereas this agitation
has been kept up through government
reports, hard road associations, wheel
men s organizations, etc., for a series of
years: and whereas we believe these
organizations have no interest in the
farmer except to exploit him. the
wneeimen nave bequeathed tneir in
fluence and interest, to the automobile
manufacturer and user; the merchants
in the cities who believe hard roads
will increase their trade at the expense
of the smaller towns; the capitalist
who sees a gilt-edge investment in
bonds based on central Illinois farm
ands; the shady politicians, grafters
and heelers who follow in their wake;
all these and others not mentioned
want hard roads for the benefit of the
farmer at the farmers' expense.
"Therefore, be it Resolved: That we
hereby most emphatically denounce
those would be road builders at the ex
pense of the farmers of central Illinois.
We are told the county and state will
help. Who is the state? and who is the
county? Who pay the taxes and who
re the tax dodgers? We are especial-!
opposed to state Intervention in lo
cal matters, as past experience has
proven that it means the least benefi
cial results from largest expenditures.
It means the supplanting of local con
trol of local affairs, the very foundation
on which our governmental structure
rests. And so far as our experiences in
county expenditures citable us to judge,
we do not feel as though we would get
maximum results from minimum ex
penditures. We believe the tax pay-
;ers of the county will bear us out in
the fact that such has not been their
experience in the past. And as the
mileage of steam and electric railroads
i.i rapidly increasing and the average
distance from those roads is not more
than three and on-half to four miles,
the farmers of central Illinois fail to
see any pressing need for Appian
highways. Heretofore the farmers
thought that hard roads was simply a
fad taken up by iople of leisure.
"But now the farmers see the animus
behind the movement. They see the
cloven foot protruding, and they are de
termined to use every honest and legal
method at their command, individually
and collectively, to defeat these propa
gandists if they have to vote as a unit
to do jt. We have at various times iter
ated and reiterated the fact that we are
willing to allow any city, town or vil
lage, or township in the state to build
their streets, construct their highways. I
and keen them in renair n-ith uhat. I
ever material they find most conveni
ent, satisfactory and least expensive.
Therefore, we naturally ask", why not
others grant us the same privilege?
"In accordance with these views, we,
the people of the above named coun
ties, through our delegates named, re
spectfully request our governor and
representatives in the present legisla
ture to leave their roads in the hands
of the communities who use them and
are most interested in their condition."
Kid McCoy Scores Quick Knockout.
Hot Springs. Ark- March 4. "Kid
McCoy settled Jack Crawford's pugil
istic aspirations by knocking him out
in the first round after one minute and
50 seconds of fighting last night. Craw
ford never had a chance and acted as
receiver general for numerous swings
and jabs, which were sent to his face
with frightful force. The "Kid" show
ed a flash of his old time form, mainly
because Crawford seemed affected with
stage fright or seemingly knew less
than nothing about the fighting game.

William H. West's minstrel jubilee,

West, Ricaby was his personal repre

probably better than any impressario
of burnt cork entertainment in the
country. According to the press in
every city where the organization has
appeared, the West minstrels this sea
son are stronger than ever. It is by
far the best singing show on tour, with
a double octet of 16 trained voices, in
cluding five ?tar tenors. There is a
strong contingent of comedians and
enough big olio acts to stock a first
class vaudeville house. The end men
are headed by the famous New York
comedian, Tom Mack. He is one of the

greater popularity than Lew Dock
