Follow Each New Discovery of Science.
The great rtrides that medical sci
ence has made in the last few years in
due to the germ theory. When the
germ of a disease has been discovered,
the doctors have not been slow in find
ing a drug to kill it. In a few years,
it will be rare to find a bald-headed
man or woman. The falling out of
hair is due to a dandruff germ, and now
it has been discovered how to kill this
germ. The remedy used is called New
bro's Herpicide. Its success has been
marvelous. Not a failure has been so
far reported. It is also a delightful
hair dressing free, from oil or sticky
substances. Try it and be convinced
of its actual merit. Sold by leading

INGREASE IN YEAR
Freight Traffic Here Greater
Than in Last Fiscal
REPORTS MADE BY OFFICIALS
Business in Rock Island Advances
Steadily, and Manufactures in
Moline Help There.
According to the reports of the vari
ous railway freight offices for the fiscal
year the freight traffic both in and out
of this city has shown a healthy in
crease during the year, which ended
June 20. These reports are secret, but
information gained, shows that in near
ly every class of merchandise there lias
been an increase both in the incoming
freight and the outgoing. Anthracite
coal is one exception, and the ship
ments of this product are continually
falling off. This is due to the substi
tution of Kentuck coal for the Penn
sylvania anthracite, the difference in
the price more thai balancing the
slight difference in the quality of the
two. This decrease in sales in these
western cities, however, is of but slight
importance in the anthracite market, for
figures show that barely 10 per cent
of the Pennsylvania coal is shipped
west of a line drawn at the eastern
point of tlie line between Indiana and
Illinois. The territory west of that
line will include Chicago, so the im
portance of this locality in the an
thracite market is slight.

The greatest increases in the freight
handled in the three cities and East
Moline during the year is in Moline.
The difference in tho figures of this
year and last is marked in that city,
particularly in those commodities that
enter into the manufacture of imple
ments and vehicles. The production
of outgoing vehicles and implements
was greater than during the year, and
naturally the amount of material re
ceived showed a proportionate iu-
An estimate of the amount of freight
received and sent from this city dur
ing the year places the business at
1.230,(0O,O(i0 pounds, or about "i5 cars
o:i all roads, both ways, daily. The
estimate places the number of cars
loaded and unloaded here in the year at
between 22,00 and 25.000. These fig

Efforts of Davenport and Clinton
jromoters to strike oil or gas at Sand
