One would think the laxative idea
in a cough syrup should have been
advanced long before it was. It seems
the only rational remedy for coughs and
colds would be to move the bowels
and clean the mucous membranes of
the throat and lungs at the same time.
Kennedy's - Laxative Honey and Tar
does this... It is the original laxative
cough syrup, the best known remedy
for coughs, colds, croup, whooping
cough, etc. Tastes good and harmless.

ALL WANT THE STORM DRAIN
Fifth Ward Men Meet in Council Cham'
ber Pass Resolutions Making
Suggestions to Board.
At a meeting of the property holders
of the First and Second wards held lasr
evening in the quarters of the Rock
Island Athletic association, an organi
zation was launched that will have for
its object the improvement of the low
er end of the city. The idea originated
with John Holzhammer, and the organiz
ation will be known as the Local Im
provement association, having for its
object the local improvement and gen
eral interests of the First and Second
wards, and the discussion of matters
that may arise in the city council.
A committee consisting of John
Kolloff, John Holzhammer, Wil
liam Kroeger, F. W. Schroedcr.
R. G. Hudson and C. V. Johnson, will
make preliminary arrangements. Tlv;
primary object of the meeting was fj
further consider the question of the
southwestern sewer and storm drain.
A report was heard from the commit
tee that met with the board of local
improvements Wednesday morning.
( liunuc In Attitude.
The people of the First and SeeonJ
wards are almost unanimous for the
proposed drain. Intensely loyal to their
city, and especially to their portion of
it. they are, with a few exceptions
agreed that the drain should be built
and that the plan now under considera
tion is the most feasible.
I I rth Word Meeting.
Fifth ward property holders met i l
the council chamber last evening o
consider the proposition of the sewer.
Resolutions were adopted making sev
eral suggestions with reference to tho
project. It Is proposed that the drain
run east to Twenty-second street on
Twelfth avenue and east to Twenty
third street on Tenth avenue, instead
of beginning on Twenty-first street.
is further suggested that the section
be CC inches in diameter instead of 2i.
and the remainder in proportion, and
that the main sewer run direct to tin;
river on Eleventh avenue instead of
going over to Eighteenth avenue. A
committee consisting of F. H. First, S.
E. Mattison. Jr., W. L. Gansert, F.' L.
Yerbury and James McNamara drew
It also developed at this meeting that
the Twenty-first street drain is nr
giving the best of service because the
Burlington has failed to perform .'s
share of the duty in connection with
it. Under the tracks of this road th
drain is higher than that constructed
by the city, and Ihus obstructs tiv
passage of the sewage. The Rock Is!
and lowered its section, but the Bur
lington failed to act. The matter was
taken up by this body and it will be
agitated until the railway men t a In
action toward relief.
