THE "ARGUS, FRIDAY, JULY 20, 1906.
Another Judge Wanted. There is be
ing circulated ia the city a petition for
.the creation of another judgeship in
Scott county. The petition is being
generally sijrned by business men and
citizens. The circulator, believing that
the" request for the appointment of an
other judge' for this county should
come from the people and taxpayers,
has not passed it among the members
of the bar as yet. as he has desired to
secure the opinion of the business men
first. It is asserted that the work in
the district court in this county is too
great for one judge. The number of
cases always on the docket and the
length of time which always expires
between the time a case is filed and
the time when it is called for trial are
both considered too' great. The bus
iness in the district court in Scott
county is greater than that in any oth
er county in the district. Moreover,
Scott county ranks among the first
counties in the state in the amount of
business transacted in the district
court. It is pointed out that several
counties in the state with less bus
iness than Scott county have two
judges, and it is urged that Scott
should also have two.

of this city, asking him to look up the
whereabouts of Joe Mansfield, a run
away lad, give him the ticket that was
enclosed and put him on the train for
Chicago. The letter stated that infor
mation had been received that the lad
was in Davenport and added that his
parents were very anxious on his ac
count. The letter was turned over to,
George Ellmann and the humane offic

being crowned with success. Joe was
found living in the Diftoe building on
Third and Brady streets. Ke turned
out to be a bright young Jewish lad
about 10 years of age. When the anx

the proper manner he agreed to take
the ticket and go home to see the folks.
But he declared that he was satisfied
with Davenport and would be h?re

attacked by Mrs. Good and her sou.
The patrol wagon was summoned and
it required four men to put Mrs. Good

did she offer.

C. Struck on Seventh and Ripley

THE SUN DIAL.

In an old shop in lower New York a
man kecj s up his trade of dial making.
The diuls, square, octagonal or circu

ceive a high polish, and any acciden
tal effect of weatLer stain or other
"tone of time" is carefully preserved
if not skillfully added. These dials,
fitted with the gnomon, or stylus, are
then artfully slipped into the show
windows of uptown curiosity shops
among a selected debris of Sheffield
plate, prism candlesticks, inhiRl tea

A visitor to one of these shops asked:
"How old is that brass dial over there?
It's all hand work, isn't it?"

WEAK AS A RAG
McGANN HAD ANAEMIA AND
MADE WELL AND HAPPY BY
WILLIAMS' PINK PIU-S.
Feels That She Has a New Lease
Life and is Recommending the
Pills to All Her Friends.
Anaemia is just the doctor's name
for bloodlessness. Dr. Williams Pink
Pills for Pale People actually make
new blood. Can any cure be more di
rect or certain? Blood is bound to
cure bloodlessness. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills cure anaemia just as food cures
hunger. They cured Mrs. Thomas J.
McGann, of 17 Lincoln Place, Plain
field, N. J., and they can do as much
for any other pale, weak, ailing, blood
"In the spring of 1903 I did my usual
house cleaning," says Mrs. McGann,
"and soon afterward I began to have
the most terrible headaches. My heart
would beat so irregularly that it was
painful and there came a morning
when I could not get up. My doctor
said I bad anaemia and he was sur
prised that I had continued to live in
the condition I was in. I was confined
to my bed for nearly two months, the
doctor coming every day for the f.rst
few weeks, but I did not improve to
amount to anything.
"Altogether I was sick for nearly
two years. I was as weak as a rag,
had headaches, irregular heart beats,
loss of appetite, cramps in the limbs
and was unable to get a good night's
sleep. My legs and feet were so swol
len that I feared they would burst.
"One day, while I was wondering
how long I could live, feeling as I did.
I received a booklet telling about Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.
I read it and told my husband to get
me some of the pills. " Before vcvr long
I felt a change for the better. I rave
taken about twelve boxes and although
I was as near the grave as I could be.
I now feel as if I had a new lease of
life. I have no more headache, the
heart beats regularly, my cheeks are
pink and I feel 10 years younger. I
feel that I have been cured very cheap
ly, and I have recommended Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills to lots of my friends."
When Dr. .Williams Pink Pills re
place bad blood with good Llood, they
strike straight at the root and cause
of diseases like headache, biliousness,
Indigestion, anaemia, neuralgia, sciat
ica, locomotor ataxia and other disor
ders often pronounced incurable. Dr.
Williams Pink Pills are sold by all
druggists, or will be sent by mail on
receipt of price, 50 cents per box, six
boxes $2.50, by the Dr. Williams Med!

company, charged with assaulting
Frank Kaigwin, one of the machinists
remaining at work when the strike
was declared, was called in the court
of Justice Henry E. Mapes yesterday
A continuance till next Monday was
granted. The postponement was re
quested by the defendant and consent
ed to by the plaintiff. Some of the
strikers wanted W. H. Van Dervoort
arrested on a charge of violating the
automobile ordinance. They claim his
machine is not provided with a city li
cense number, but the magistrate ex
plained to them the folly of attempting
the arrest, as in fighting the case Mr
'Van Dervoort could easily escape on
the plea of non-resident, the machines
being those used out of the East Mo-
New Factory Building. A five-story
structure for warehouse purposes and
three-story structure for the manufac
ture of vehicle bodies will be erected
by the Henny Buggy company of Mo
line at its plant in Freeport. Trade
Manager A. C. Barber at Freeport yes
terday said that the buildings alone
will cost $50,000 and additional machin
ery to be installed will entail an outlay
of $13,000 to $20,000 more. The ware
house will occupy ground to the rear
of the present office building and the
three-story building will have ground
dimensions of 90x120 feet.

Hie ssme parallel in the states that the

prised how many people pick up a dial
that strikes their fancy which perhaps
stood In the garden of au old Virginia
estate, intending to hurry It off to the
big grounds of some place in Minneso
ta; or they'll snatch at some quaint
dial from New England, with the idea
of rigging It up in Texas.
"More people would make the same
blunder, except that many haven't
caught on to dials. Too bad. Nothing
Is prettier than a simple dial at the
ciFossways of garden paths, or by n
fountain or on a terrace or at the en
trance of a pergola or near a rustic
s'eat or arbor. You dont. have to hire
a head gardener and two assistants to
keep"a sundial. Marble platforms and
pedestals are very grand, but -unless
you're ' running a big Italian garden
with clipped hedges and yews and
statues something simple is what you
want. The dial will keep Just as good
time, once it's engraved riglit, if It's
mounted ou a tree stump, with ivy
planted round It, or on a bowlder, or 'on
the coping of an old disused well, or on
a column of cobbles mortared together,
or on top of the old hitching post that

They're the ones who get effects with
a piece of junk, a lump of sentiment

be bought with a blank check. I've
known people who used an old mill
stone to set the dial on, or who laid a
slab over an old stone garden urn, or
who saved the capitals from pillars on
a house being torn down, or who even
rigged up a standard from the bricks
of a chimney on an old homestead that
had meant a lot to them. One family
made a sort of cairn out of a geology
collection some ancestor had formed.
Another took a flag pole for the gnomon
and laid out a dial with pebbles in the
grass around the pole.

up the dial. Get the noon mark for the
gnomon on several days, nick it on the
