Arrangements have been made for the
presentation in this city at the Illinois
of I. W. Robertson's Moving Picture
Concert and Entertainment company
of New York City. This company
claims the only recognized moving
picture device in America. It is a
pleasure to witness moving pictures as
presented by this famous company now
on a tour of the United States. Mr.
Robertson's company has been the suc
cess of many of the leading Chautau

years, and return again this year to
Dixon, 111., for the seventh consecutive
year, and to Winona Lake. Ind., for
the 10th year, and many others through
out the states of Illinois and Iowa.
The management feels confident that
in arranging for this company they
are presenting to the people of this
city absolutely the greatest program
of its kind ever given here. At the

Made Quick Arrest. Within seven
minutes after receiving word from Vin
ton, Iowa, saying that George Hess
was wanted there, the police had the
man located and securely locked in a
cell at the station. He is charged with
conspiracy. Hess was one of the two
men arrested Monday, supposedly for
forgery. The deputy sheriff arrived
with a warrant for Fred Hauser, the
other man, but none for Hess. Hess
was accordingly released.

AVulff vs. the Davenport Flour, Feed &

for $7,2.V, and the settlement made of
record in the district court. Mr. Wulff
in his suit alleged that he was taken
into the company named and that he
made cash investments in its stock to
the extent of $(5,500, and later was giv
en $500 in stock for wages due him,
and later 22 shares of $100 each as a
stock dividend. Becoming dissatisfied
with his bargain, he sought to draw
out and get his money back and asked
that a receiver be appointed for the
company. The settlement, for $7,230,
ends the dispute.

There is no better assurance of health in after life than

The ingredients that enter into S. S. S. and the method of com
bining and preparing them so that they build up aud strengthen
every part of the body, make it.the greatest of all tonics. S. S. S. is nature's
remedy PURELY VEGETABLE and while it is restoring the lost appe
tite, overcoming tht tired, run-down feeling, and other ailments common to Spring, which
warn us that it is necessary to take a tonic, it is purifying the blood of all poisons aud waste
matters so that it can suppty to the system the strength and nourishment it needs to keep it
in perfect condition during the depressing summer months that are to follow.
bpnng is the season when most every
one needs a tonic. It is nature's time for
renewing and changing; and as everything
puts on new life, the sap rises in vegetation,
the earth thaws out from its winter freezes,
and all respond to Spring's call to purge
and purify themselves, there is a great
change also takes place in our bodies. The
blood endeavors to throw off the poisons and
accumulations which have formed iu the
system, and been absorbed by it, from the
inactive winter life, and calls upon every
member to assist in the elimination. The
system is often unequal to the struggle, the
appetite grows fickle, the energies give way,
the spirits are depressed, and a general run
down condition is the result.
Then the body must have assistance
it must be strengthened and aided by a tonic,
and S. S. S. is the ideal one. Being made
entirely from roots, herbs and barks, it does
not disagreeably affect t.e system in any way as do most of the so-called tonics on the market,
which contain Potash or some other harmful mineral ingredient to derange the stomach and
digestion, unfavorably affect the bowels, or otherwise damage the health. S. S. S. tones up
the stomach and digestion and assists in the assimilation of food ; it rids the system of that
always-tired, worn-out feeling, and imparts vigor and tone to every part of the body. It re
establishes the healthy circulation of the blood, stimulates the sluggish organs, and calms
the unstrung nerves which make one feel that he is on the verge of prostration. S. S. S.
gives an appetite and relish for food that nothing else does, and by its use we can find our
selves with as hearty, hungry an appetite in Spring as at any other season.
It acts more promptly and gives better and more lasting results than any other remedy,
and is absolutely safe because of its vegetable purity. Dyspeptic, irritable, nervous, debili
tated people will find S. S. S. is just the medicine that is needed for the purification of
the blood, which, from its diseased or impure condition, is causing their trouble, as well as
for toning up and helping the entire system. When you take your tonic this Spring do not
experiment, but get the best the tonic with forty years of success behind it, aud the one
endorsed by the best people all over the country S. S. S., THE GREATEST OF ALL
TONICS. It is necessary at this time, when the system is depleted and weakened at every
point, that the right remedy be used one that is especially adapted to the condition, and
S. S-S. has proved itself to be this remed3' for many years. If it is taken at the first sign
of Spring the system will be so built up and strengthened that the disagreeable affections of
the season will not be felt as warmer weather conies on.

Will Paint Bridge. The city council
has at last decided to paint the bridge
across Rock river south of the city
which the government practically re
fused to maintain and which the city
was compelled to accept and keep in
repair. James P. Pearson, chairman
of the bridge committee of the city
council recommended that the struct
ure be painted at once and that a man
residing near the bridge be employed
at $10 a month to look after structure
and see that the ordinance in regard
to the speed limit be enforced. The
recommendation was accepted, and
the city will advertise for bids for the
painting of the structure. Among other
things whichf came up for action at
the council was granting permission
for the erection or a large circus tent
on Market square for the purpose of
holding revival meetings in during the
time that Rev. Blederwolf is in the
Prepare for Annual Meeting. The
executive board of the Woman's club
will meet Friday morning with Mrs. F.
G. Allen. This is the board ir.eeting
before the annual meeting, which will
be held Saturday afternoon at the
First Methodist church, when officers
will be elected. All applications far
membership in the Woman's club for
next year should be made prior to the
board meeting of Friday, so that
names of new members may appear in
the year book for next season.
Village Board Organizes. East Mo
line's new village board met Monday
night and organized for the coming
year. President Animerman appointed
the village officers and oilier business
of importance was transacted. In the
report of the treasurer it was shown
that during the past year $19,580.50
was the total amount of expenditures.
This leaves the village with a balance
cf $9,737.44 on hand May 1. The pres
ident deferred the reading of his year
ly message and it probably will be
read at the next meeting. The follow
ing were the appointments: Marshal
William Darrow. Night Police
George Hoover. Street Commissioner
W'illiam Decker. J. B. Oakleaf was
elected village attorney for another
Budget Submitted. The annual
budget was submitted by the city clerk
at the regular meeting of the council
Monday evening. It shows a substan
tial Increase in several of the funds
but of course the various funds may be
changed as the council may see fit.
The total estimated receipts Is placed
at $105,392.23. while last year it was
$7.SS7.S3 less. The estimated expens
es are $134,670.62. which is $17,173.52
more than the budget of 1903. The
cash on hand at the first of the fiscul
year was $27,472.25 and the general
tax to be collected during the year
amounts to $70,000. Revenue for sa
loon licenses is placed at $30,720 and
from water rent collections $32,500.
At the next meeting the council will
probably make an appropriation based
on the estimate. The detail budget of
the city clerk, as estimated by him, can
be found In the official proceedings.
