Moline Plow company not to erect this
year the 10-story warehouse which will
occupy the company's share of the pa

PATIENT GIVES ALL THE CREDIT
TO DR. WILLIAMS PINK" PILLS.
Disease Had Attacked the Heart and
Would Doubtless Have Been
Fatal Had Right Remedy
Not Been Taken.
That Dr. Williams Pink Pills will
cure neuralgia there is no room to
doubt 5o many severe cases of this
painful disease have yielded to these
pills that the sufTerer who is prevented
by prejudice from trying the remedy
deserves litle sympathy. And there is
no disease in which the pain Is more
acute, more agonizing than in some
forms of neuralgia. The disease is not
only painful but dangerous, as it is
liable to attack the heart when, unless
speedily cured, it is frequently fatal.
Mrs. Charles Scbultz, of 179 Thomas
street, Newark. N. J., suffered for sev
en vears with neuralgia which attacked
her heart and which did not yield to
the usual remedies. The story of the
cure is best told in her own words.
"I had scarlet fever and it left me
with a weak heart. Then I took cold
and a severe pain settled in the region
of my heart. My suffering was almost
beyond description. I could not talk
and the pain caught meat every breath.
The awful pains would come on sud
denly and I would have to sit right
down. I could not walk and would get
dizzy for a time.
"I was confined to bed for four weeks
at one time and nothing seemed to do
me any good. I was under a physi
cian's care for months. He pronounced
my trouble neuralgia of the heart and
prescribed for me. The capsules he
gave me relieved me for a time but the
pain came back again.
-Finally Dr. Williams' Pmk Pills
were recommended to me by a lady
whose husband had ben cured of
paralysis by them and I decided to give
the pills a good trial. While I was on
the second box I began to see an im
provement, the pains became less fre
quent and at last I was entirely cured.
This was some time ago, but I have bad
no relapse and have been in good
health ever since. . I think there is no
medicine to equal Dr. Williams' Pink
Neuralgia is the cry of the nerves
for food. It means starved nerves. Like
every other part of the body the nerves
receive their nourishment through the
blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actu
ally make new blood which carries to
f ho Rfarvrt nprvps thf plpmpnts thpv
need. So these pills cure neuralgia
just as rood cures hunger. They con
tain not tone particle of opiate, mor
chine, cocaine or anvthinc "soothlnz.'
They cure troubled nerves by remov
ing the cause or the trouble.
In the same way, by building up and
enrichinc the blocd. ' they have cured
such diseases as anaemia, rheumatism,
sciatica, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance,
stomach trouble, debility, paralysis, lo
comotor ataxia and the special ail
ments of ; women ' and growing girls.

Leads in Manufacturing. Many
people are under he impression that
Davenport is not exactly what might
be called a manufacturing city, a lack
of factories existing here. It Is true
that more factories could be accom
modated1 and would be exceedingly
welcome, the more the merrier, but at
the same time it is interesting to know
that Davenport actually leads every
city in the state in the matter of cap
ital Invested in manufacturing enter
prises. The national bureau of census
has just Issued a bulletin on, the man
ufactures of Iowa as shown by the cen
sus of 1905. This shows 173 manufac
turing establishments in Davenport
with a combined capital of $13.0C0,000
and a totel value of manufactured pro

of wage earners is 3.S40.

"As I was a sufferer with eczema
I write to tellyou what a great friend
I found in Cuticura Remedies. In

tried three doctors,
but did not get any
better. It was on
my body and on my
feet so thick that
I could hardly put
a pin on me with
out touching ec
zema. 11 y face was
covered, my eyebrows came out, and
then it got in my eye. I then went to
another doctor. He asked me what !
1 was taking for it, and I told him
Cuticura. He said that was a very
good thing, but that he thought that
my face wou Id be marked for life. Bu t
Cuticura did its work and my face is
now just as clear as it ever was.
"My brother-in-law told me about
the wonderful Cuticura remedies.
I took his advice and got the Ointment,
Soap, and Resolvent. I washed with
the Cuticura Soap and then applied
the Ointment, and took Cuticura
Resolvent as directed. In a short
time my face began to get better, and
when I had taken one bottle of
Resolvent I could brush the scales
off my 'face like a powder. When I
bad taken four bottles my face was as
clear as ever.
"I told all my friends about my
remarkable cure. I feel so thankful
I want everybody far end wide to
know what Cuticura can do. It is a

"Babes in Toyland." "Babes in Toy
land," at the Illinois Sunday evening,
is a musical extravaganza which has
had great vogue for the past two sea
sons. It is Raid that Hamlin and
Mitchel, the proprietors of the organi
zation, have outdone themselves in this
production and that "Babes in Toy
land" is one of the most expensively
mounted attractions now before the
American public. The play was writ
ten by tUen MacDouough, an American
dramatist and librettist of note, and
the nmsic composed by Victor Herbert
who is easily recognized as one of
America's foremost musicians. A pleas
ant fairy story is told in "Babes in
Toyland" dealing with the adventures
that befell an orphan boy and girl
named Alan and Jane, who run away
from their home to escape the persecu
tions of a miserly "bldi uncle, and who
come to the mythical country of Toy-
land. The management of the Illinois
theater personally guarantees this to
be the original company of 100 people

will be one of the largest ever seen ;n
