Chief of Police McCaskrin Re

SAYS HE "HAD TO DO IT'
Commonly Believed to Be a Slap at
City Clerk Changes In Men in
Henry Thode, who has been a mem
Iter of the police department for sev
eral years, was a victim of Chief of
Police McCaskrin's ax last evening. It
is understood that no reason was given
for the action except that he. the self
styled chief, "had to do it." Nobody
has yet figured out why he had to do
it, but it is commonly believed to be a
slap at City Clerk Schaffer, who has
leen friendly to Thode and who has
declined to do the bidding of the
chief. It is also suggested that per
haps the force is to be reduced to such
a degree that the council will be corn
lulled to confirm the nominations or
have no police protection. It is alsp
rumored that the days are numbered
for Charles Moody, who resigned from
the department several months ago.

Aledo, III., Feb. 14. Ray Harvey met
with a serious accident yesterday at
the Nylin farm, about two miles west
of town, where he was working. He
was engaged in moving a wagon down
a gentle slope and across a sheep lot
where they were feeding sheep. The
wagon was heavily loaded with corn,
and losing control of it, he undertook
to stop it by steering the end of the
tongue against a tree. The tongue
glanced off the end and Ray was
caught by the wagon and mashed
against the tree. He was horribly
mangled in the region of the chest and
abdomen and there is no hope of recovery.

Health for Every Child
If every mother knew tlie sterling worth of Kickapoo Worm
Killer, there would be few sickly children. Mrs. Josie Irwin, of
1074 Columbia Street, Chicago, Chaplain Ladies' Auxiliary of
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, praises this wonderful remedy
for its remarkable cure of her daughter. She writes :
" My daughter, Txuis, complained no frequently of pains in the
stomach, and Rrew so pale aud thin, that I thought she had acute
Indijrestiou. She cried, and tossed atxut o much at night that I
became alarmed. I finally eave her Kickapoo Worm Killer, thinking
Bhe might have worms, and I soon found thin to he the real trouhle.
For three days she pasued worms, over forty in all, from three inchca
to eighteen inches Iour. The medicine acted promptly and still o
gently that she had no trouhle in getting rid of them. Her health
improved quickly. She now seems an altogether different child. She
has had no ache nor pain since. I have told a number of mothers about
Kickapoo Worm Killer, for I know by experience it great value."
has brought happiness and sunshine into thousands of homes. It
is a candy tablet remedy that children 'ike to take. Not only does
it safely and permanently remove all worms, but it tones and
sweetens the little one's system, whether there are worms or not.
If your child is ailing if it picks at the nose; grinds the teeth;
has thin pale cheeks, with dark rings under the eyes; is peevish
and irritable; is troubled with bed-wetting, restlessness at night,
nervousness, fickle appetite you can with positive certainty
restore it to robust health by Kickapoo Worm Killer. It is truly the
children's friend." 25 cents a box druggists or by mail. If per
plexed about your child's health, write us and one of our physicians
will give you advice without charge- Samples of the tablets free.
