appointment was made by the boar;
of directors of the bank at a special
business meeting held Wednesday af
ternoon. Will J. Houseman was named
to succeed Mr. Yaggy as teller. Mr.
Yaggy has been with the First Nation
al bank for over 12 years. He has been
teller for many years and of late has
been also assistant cashier. He is well
known in the city and has a host of
friends. Mr. Houseman is a young
man who has been with the First Na

and is rapidly forging his way to the
frait. At the meeting at which these
appointments were made, a committee

tertain the pioneers. The Davenport
Military band has been engaged to fur
nish the musical program for dancing
bo;h afternoon and. evening. The pic
nics given by the Tri-City lodge have

doubtedly the event this year will
eclipse any of the former outings.
Passes up the City. The Monarch
Carnival company will not exhibit in
this city next wewk as previously an

tion to come here. A week or so ago
the company secured permission from

front. Now comes word that they
hare given up this city and will not
come here. It Hppears the carnival
has been up agaiust a number of poor
towns yid did not find their business
profitable. Inasmuch as there was no
crying demand that they com here,
they probably decided this- would also
be an unprofitable field.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, a remedy
which has boon, before the American
people for a generation, is still accom
plishing wonderful results as is evi
denced by the following interview wiUi
Mrs. Rachael Gardner, of Wilsey, Kan.
"It was very strange," she says, "I
never couM tell what caused it and
neither could any body else. For a
long time I had bad spells with my
stomach. The pam would commence
about my heart and was so deadly ag
onizing that I would have to serearu
aloud. Sometimes it would last for
hours and I would hare to take laud
anum to stop it. Besides this I had
a headache almost constantly, day and
night, that nearly crazed me, so you
see I sulfered a great deal. And when
I think of the agony I endured It still
make me shudder.
"Doctors, did you say? Their med
icine made me sicker. I couldn't take
it and I kept growing worse until a
friend advised me to take Dr. Williams-'
Pink Pills, and 1 did. I began to feel
better and was soon wholly converted
to this wonderful medicine. It did me
more good than I had ever hoped for.
I kept on with the pills and now I rec

PROVES HOLSTEIN CATTLE
WONDERFUL MILK BREED
Bulletin from Association Shows Rec
ord Made by Some of Top
A recent bulletin from the Holstein
Friesian Cattle Breeders' association
givos some remarkable figures regard
ing the milk and butter production of
this breed which would appear almost
beyond belief if they were not sub
stantiated by disinterested experts.
The bulletin states that during the
official year lately closed, 119 Holstein
Friesian cows and heifers of all ages
were officially tested for periods of 30
days, or longer; and the averages by
ages were as follows: Forty-six full
aged cows averaged: Milk, 2,202 d
pounds; per cent fat, 3.2S; fat, 72.147
pounds. Twelve 4-year-olds averaged:
Milk, 1,975.7 pounds; per cent fat, 3.32;
fat. C5.592 pounds. Twenty-one S
5 ear-olds averaged: Milk, 1 ,803.0
pounds; per cent fat, 3.41; fat, C1.4S2
pounds. Forty heifers classed as 2-
ear-olds averaged: Milk, 1,459.7
pounds; per cent fat, 3.3S; fat, 49.387
This herd of 1,19 animals, of which
over one-half were heMfes, produced
in S) consecutive days 221.312.5 pounds
milk, containing 7.372.4GV pounds of
bHtter fat; thus showing an average
of 3.33 per cent fat. Each animal av
eraged 1.859.8 pounds of milk, con
taining C.1.954 pounds of butter fat;
equivalent to i',2 pounds milk, or 30
quarts, per day, and almost 17 pounds
of the best creamery butterr per week
during the 30 days. For the cows
alone, the average amount of best but
ter would be nearly ld pounds per
The chief points of interest in this
issue of the official reports are the
grwat milk yield of DeKol Creamelle,
and the butter fat production of Pon
tine Hag Apple. The former has been
under the watchful care of represen
tatives of the Hatch (Mass.) experi
ment station, by whom every milking
was separately weighed and tested;
and we do not have to rely upon the
word of employes or of an interested
owner. It is difficult to comprehend
this encrmous production. The com
mon S-gallon milk can will hold about
(IS pounds of milk: and this cow pro
duced over 147 of such cans of milk
in 10' days, or nearly a can and one
half of milk per day. An official rec
ord as large as this has never before
The yield of 25.294 pounds fat from
C19.5 pounds of milk in seven days,
and 101.240 pounus fat from 2,574.6
pounds milk in 30 days, made by Pon
tiac Rag Apple, is also very remark
able, being the third largat butter fat
yield ever made erfficially before. Al
most 120 pounds of the best butter in
:!t) days, and nearly 30 pounds in one
week mark this young cow as almost
the best. She was under the. watch
and care of a representative of Cornell
university experiment station during
the whole time of her test, as is al
ways the case in the making of IIol-wtein-Friesian
tests; and during 48
consecutive hours of the test, under
orders from this office, she was con
stantly watched night and day by hav
ing two experiment station sepresen
tatires relieve each other.
These figures go to show that the
Holstein is not the giver of such thin
milk as is generally supiosed, the av
erage fat test being well above 3 per
cent, the legal requirements. Th9
great value of the breed, from a milk
ing standpoint, is the large amount of
skim milk left after separating the
cream. This skim milk, if properly
fed to calves from such numbers as
those whose averagers are given above,
would be wortli from 75 cents to $1
per loo pounds, or it would prove
highly profitable to the farmer if fed
to young pigs. It looks as if the Hol
stein was the general purpose cow
after all. Giving fairly rich milk in
abundance, being strong and robust,
with ability to put on weight when
ready for the butcher, she is surely an
A BIG CONCRETE CHIMNEY
Tov-rlHKT Sim ft With Avails of Sbrll
irke Coiint ruction.
In Butte, . Mont., there stands n
mighty chimney the top of which -Is
out) feet above the ground.
Wlien Its erection was planned, the
first idea was to build it of brick. That
would have required a thickness of
twelve or fifteen feet of masonry at Its
base. But a construction engineer from
Chicago was called into consultation.
He proposed that the huge chimney be
built of concrete, and, with some mis
givings, the plan was adopted. He pre
pared a foundation .six feet deep, 12
by 12, of oncrete, with a number of
steel re-enforcing 'rod. Begimiig at
the ground level, he carried two thin
concrete shells upward for 100 feet.
The outer one is only nine Inches in
thickness, while, separated by four
inches of space from this, is. an Inner
shell five inches thick. At a height of
100 feet these two unite' into a single
seven ine-li shell of concrete, which ex
tend skyward 'until the vast height of
3T0 feet is reached.
This chimney, many feet higher than
our modern city skyscrapers, is there
fore composed of but fourteen inches
of "concrete at the base and half
that amouut f.or the upper 250 feet. It
Is not of plain concrete, but is re-en-forcod
both horizontally and vertically
with a number of Kiua.ll steel rods,
wU'ch were held In place until the con
crete had been deposited around them,
making a re-enforced concrete body su
perior" in every way to both steel and
bricjc masonry. There are in the Unit
ed States scores of these wonderful
HE MENTION .
Removing Tracks. The Mississippi
Valley Traction company has a large
job on hand in connection with the
improvement of Fourth avenue from
Twenty-third to Thirty-fourth streets.
It will be necessary to have the car
line in the center of the street, which
will necessitate removal of the greater
portion of the track between these
points. A large force of men was put
to work on the jeb yesterday morning,
as it is necessary to have the track
moved before paving contractors can
finish their work.
Lay Corner Stone. Union Congrega
tional church people, or Ridgeview,
have planned a program for the laying
of tfhe corner stone of their new church
building which will take place next
Nut Came Off Axle. What might
have proved a serious accident was
just averted yesterday when a nut
came off the rear axle of the delivery
wagon from'Range's bakery, 2100 Fifth
avenue. As the wagon was passing
along Fifth avenue just west tf Fif
teenth street one of the rear wheels
left the wagon and went rolling for
ward toward the horses. They started
to run, but the driver managed to get
them under control before any serious
damage was done.
Many Want Place. Since the fact
of Superintendent Gerard T. Smith of
the Moline schools to assume a sim
ilar position in the Peoria schools has
been widely published the members of
the local board of education have been
besieged with applications from school
men in all parts of the country. A
number of applications ranging some
where between 30 and 50 have been
sent in, and the Peoria board reached
its decision only last Saturday night.
Swallowed Tongue. William Stack,
a molder from New Castle Pa., nearly
died in a queer manner at the police
station, when he swallowed his tongue.
He was arrested during the night short
ly after 12 on a complaint made by
people living in the vicinity of First
avenue and Seventeenth street. He
was in a box car and was howling and
moaning, serving to keep the people
awake. The man was placed in a cell,
and about. 2 o'clock Night Sergeant De
Jaeger, hearing a strange sound issu
ing from the cell, investigated and
found the man nearly dead. He was
blue in the face and it was feared that
he would die. A physician was sum
moned and soon rendered relief to the
dying man. He was taken in charge
by the local order of the molders
union and taken to the hospital.
