The Black Hawk Good Roads asso
ciation was organized yesterday after
noon at the meeting held at the Milan
town hall, D. W. Matthews, supervis
or, being elected president, and Robert
E. Little secretary. The association
will take up the improvement of the
various roads leading from Milan, and
will make practical use of the split-log
drag in its work. A committee of the
association, composed of D. W. Alatth-
ws, Thomas Gannon, predent of the
Milan town board; A. S. Brasher,
James Dixon, and Michael Kane, high
way commissioners; and Corneliim
uonovan or faoutii Kock Island, was
authorized to attend the next regular
meeting of the Rock Island council

the toll bridge be expended on the im

The meeting was well attended, over

ship and the lower end of the, count'.
and a large number from Itock Island
md South Rock Island being present.
A. N. Johnson, state highway en
gineer of the Illinois highway com
mission, was present, and care
fully explained the working and
maintenance of earth roads, and th
construction and operation of the split-
log dragr. Mr. Johnson, who is a high
way engineer of much experience, is
quite enthusiastic over the possibilities
f the split log drag, s the most sim
ple, efficient, and inexpensive method
of improving the roads.

of the drainage in lowering the under

the main subject of Mr; Johnson's talk.
He explained the advantages of, this
draff, showing how it maintains the
crown of the highway, and how it re
sulted in making a hard" crusted sur
face. In conclusion he called attention
to other organizations of the state for
highway improvement, and suggested
that for any permanent value to reeult
from such a meeting as the present
one, it is necessary that the subject of
good roads be thought of 363 days a
year, not once or twice a year when
good roads meetings are held.
John W. I'nrker.
John W. Parker, secretary of the
Tri-City Pasteurized Milk company,
who has taken au active part in the
movement for road improvement, and
who is an enthusiast on the split-log
drag, addressed the meeting, and in
response to a suggestion by Mr. John
son that the good roads agitation might
be furthered by awarding prizes, offer
ed to socure a sufficient fund by sub
scription among the merchants- and
business men of Rock Island to give
material incentive for the improvement
of the roads. He spoke of the experi
ments made by the company's em
ployes, and of the possibilities of the
split-log drag. He said that in all of
the state of Illinois between Savanna
and Cairo, there is no stretch of road
in as poor condition as that which
leads from Milan west past the old dis
tillery, buildings. It was at Mr. Park
er'a suggestion that the organization
was formed, Supervisor Matthews, who
was unanimously elected president of
the association, has been an advocate
of road improvement for years, but. us
he stated in accepting the position, has
been particularly in favor of hard
roads. He expressed himself as con
iuceu mat me spin-tog nag is an ex
cellent devise, and that it will do much
toward securing better highways. Com
missioners Kane, Brasher, and Dixon
were authorised to name pathmsters
or vice presidents, from residents
along each of the five principal roads
in the township.
Work on Ninth Strrrt.
The question of the improvement of
Ninth street and Twelfth street be
tween the bridges and Rock Island was
brought, up by Mr. Parker, who in his
remarks called on Mayor McCaskrin
to state his position on this matter,
Mayor McCaskrin recalled the expendi
tures of the city on the improvement
of the bridges in the last three years,
amounting to $2S,000, and it was at h's
suggestion that the delegation was
named to present the subject to the
city council. Mayor McCaskrin ex
pressed himself as willing to do all in
his power to secure the entire income
from the toll gate, about 54.000 yearly.
for work, on the improvement of the
two streets, and said that he thought
it probable that li tne matter was
properly presented it would meet favor
from tho council.
t general discussion followed, m
which Hon. William Payne, Mr. Par
ker, S. W. Heath, Mayor McCaskrin, Da
vid Sears, Mr. Caldwell, and others par
ticipated. Following the meeting the
working of the split-log drag was dem
onstrated on a stretch just west of the
railway tracks, the drag being one fur-t
nished by Mr. Parker. The roads were
still somewhat frozen, and for this rea
son the test was not as successful, as it
otherwise would, have, been, but, not
withstanding the frost near the surface
two rounds with the drag carried al

road, leaving smooth sides down which
the water flowed to the gutters. The

CARD FROM H. O. ROLFS.
His Liberal Offer to Treat Worst Case
of Catarrh in Rock Island.
To the Editor: For some time I
have had an opportunity to watch the
results following the use of Hyomel, a
treatment for catarrh that cures by
breathing medicated air, absolutely
without any stomach dosing. The re
sults have been so remarkable that I
feel justified in making a public offer
to treat the worst case or catarrh in
Rock Island with the understanding
that if Hyomei does not cure it will
cost absolutely nothing.
The complete Hyompi outfit costs
only $1, and consists of an Inhaler
that can be carried in the vest pocket,
a medicine dropper and a bottle of Hy
omei. Should this not be enough for
a cure extra bottles of Hyomel can be
obtained for 50 cents.
1 hope this offer will be accepted by
many of your readers.
Very truly your,
H. O. ROLFS,
Harper House Pharmacy.
The soothing spray of Ely's Liquid
Cream Balm,- used in an atomizer, is
an unspeakable relief to sufferers from
catarrh. Some of them describe it as
a godsend, and no wonder. The thick,
foul discharge is dislodged and the pa
tient breathes freely, perhaps for the
first itme in weeks. Liquid Cream
Balm contains all the healing, purify
ing elements. of ,the solid. form, and it
never fails to cure. Sold by all drug
gists for 75c, including, spraying tube,
or mailed , by Ely Bxos 56 Warren
