brother, C. A. Hemmingson, had a nar
row escape from death Saturday after
noon in Hast Moline. The rig in which
they were riding was struck by an east

but fortunately they sustained no in
jury outside of a few bruises. The
horse which they were driving was in
stantly killed. The Messrs. Hemming
son were driving In the light delivery
wagon which they use about the city
and were going out to East Moline to

engine striking the horse.

are buried in that country, to the
United States, if proper arrangements
can be made with the authorities. Dur
ing his absence his class in sociology
will be conducted by J. A. Logsdon.

Masher Fined. Louis Johnson, re
siding east of the city, was arrested
Saturday evening and fined' $1 and
costs by Justice Peter Ingelson for
making an indecent remark to a young
lady near the int-urban station. John
son was standing on the corner when
the girl came along, and he took occa
sion to hand out a little small talk. A
gentleman standing near resented the
remarks, and he summoned an officer
who happened to be near, and later
swore to the complaint for his arrest
Justice Ingelson heard the case . and
the minimum fine was imposed. Nu
nierous reports have come to the po
lice station in regard to the insulting
remarks which a certain class of young
men use in meeting girls after night.
Heretofore it has been impossible for
an arrest to be made as the informa

Fine Train for Trade Excursion.
Secretary C. A. Steel of the Davenport
Commercial club has received word of
the equipment that the Rock Island
will furnish for the trade excursion to
leave Davenport at 6:50 o'clock tomor
row morning.. The train will include
a buffet parlor car, a chair car, and one
of the company's best day coaches, all
right from the shop and good and clean

main line will be with the train from
here to Grinnell, adding his private car
to the three already noted, and Super
intendent Given of Des Moines will
join the train at Oskaloosa and come
with it in his private car to Muscatine
or Davenport. The present prospects
are that the train will carry a gather
ing more representative of Davenport's
business interests than any that has
been assembled for a long time, and
that In many ways it will be equipped
to give Davenport one of the most
valuable advertisements that it has

THE FOURTH OF JULY RISK

priceless Jewel. Unfortunately, how
ever, mere noise is not all. The fire
damage and mortality directly trace
able to the popular custom now pre
vailing of celebrating the Fourth of
July has in recent years grown largely,
and many persons are annually killed,
others are Injured, and large losses re
sult because of fires due to the "fire
works" method of celebrating Ameri
When it appears, from statistics
gathered by the Chicago Tribune, that
over fifty persons were killed and
more than 3,100 were Injured as the re
sult of last year's celebration of the
glorious Fourth, notwithstanding the
constant cheapening of human life, it
really seems as If It was about time to
call a bait, even if the property loss of
over $250,000 be entirely disregarded.
Last year Wisconsin enacted a law
prohibiting the sale and use of giant
firecrackers, which was a manifesta
tion of the trend of . public opinion
against the tune honored method of
celebrating and in favor of au obserr
ance of the day that is "safer and
saner." Wisconsin's example has been
folio wed this year by the state of
Iowa, and In that state it will hence
forth be a misdemeanor punishable by
Imprisonment or fine to fire oft revolv
ers, toy guns or firecrackers on the
Fourth of July. The protest of the
Iowa youth against this law will find
as a foil thereto the approval of the

The old time celebration of July 4 Is
trembling on the brink of discontinu

wonder why we did not sooner come
to abolishing the barbarous method of
celebration that has too long prevailed.
The passing of the old time Fourth of
July is coming. It may not pass as
quickly as did the catching of wolves
alive with his hands, as proposed by
John Abernathy, United States marshal
of Guthrie, Okla., as a Fourth of July
celebration, which was Interdicted by
President Roosevelt, but It will pass
It ought to pass.
A NEW SOCIETY FAD.
Newport Woman Adopts Oriental
Style, Veil Hiding; All bat Eyn.
The first society fad of the season at
Newport was introduced the other
morning by Miss Mildred Sherman,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William
Watts Sherman, while driving her fa
ther to the Wiekford boat, says the
New- York American.
Miss Sherman, who Is a clever whip
and one of the last winter's debu
tantes, with her sister. Miss Irene
Sherman, wore a heavy double veil of
brown caught with jeweled pins it
each side of her hair, the veil spanning
the face and leaving an opening for
the eyes and forehead, a fashion much
in evidence with the women of Malta
Miss Sherman's Identity was only
made plain by the presence of ber fa
ther and sister, together with the hand
some and high stepping team of horses
which are so well known in Newport.
The new fad attracted no little atten
tion and bids fair to become popular
among the younger set of Newport.

to see 1l master of the house. "lie's

him when he comes in." said Toole,
"that his brother from the workhouse

FOR THE BLOOD
The demand for S. S. S. has steadily increased since it was first placed
on the market until it is now recognized as the greatest of all Mood purifiers.
It has won its way to success because IT CURES DISEASE, and
there are few homes where "S. S. S. for the blood" is not a household saying.
As the blood is the very life of the body, nourishing and supplying strength
to every part, disease in some form is sure to follow when it becomes contam
inated. Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Boils, Timples and the various skin affections
are due to an over-acid and impure blood-supply. Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Scrofula, Chronic Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all
deep-seated blood diseases and will continue to grow worse and more danger
ous as long as the impurities and poisons which, produce them remain in the
blood. In all blood disorders S. S. S. has proven itself a perfect remedy, and
well earned the right to be called the greatest of all blood purifiers. It goes
down into the circulation and forces out all poisons, impurities, humors,
and unhealthy matter, and makes this life-stream rich, pure and health-sustaining.
S. S. S. reaches inherited blood taints and so enriches the circula
tion that diseases of years standing are permanently cured. It contains no
harmful minerals and is nature's real blood purifier. Book on the blood and
