"Phe men were caught in the act of
"doctoring" the roulette wheel in the
club rooms of C. E. Gordon, located
over "King Edward" 1-ange's saloon
and buffet on lower Brady street, be
tween Front end Second streets. Sev
eral previous attemps had been made
to "fix" Mr. Gordon's gambling de
vices and he had engaged Mr. Kas
tens to watch his place. After the
place had been closed this morning and
the occupants had left the premises,
Mr. Kastens discovered two men on
the inside at work. At once realizing
their intuit, he covered them, with his
gun and kept them covered until the
patrol had been summoned, bringing
police officers Shanley and Brehmer to
his assistance. The men had drilled
the roulette wheel and were in the act
Df placing needles in it which would
make the ball stop at a certain group
of numbers, when surprised in their
work by Mr. Kastens. It was the men's
ntention of course to return to the
J place tonight and play the group of
numbers which had bewi fixed and
thus clean up the proprietor for a
large sum of money.

Build New Vaudeville House. Mana
ger Charles Berkell of the Elite thea
ter, who has made such a great suc
cess of vaudeville in Davenport, has
closed a deal whereby he secures a five
year lease on the east half of the Ger-
mania house on Second street, between
Harrison and Ripley streets, and will
begin forthwith to rebuild the first floor
into a commodius, first class vaude
ville house. Business of a magnitude
that had outgrown the capacity on the
Elite theater on Brady street compelled
him to make this move. The lease was
made through the Harrison Real Es
tate company. The work of the new
Elite will begin at once. The theater
will be 40x140 feet, against 20x120 at
the Brady street house. Eleven exits
will make it perfectly safe, and a spac
ious lobby, a large stage fine opera
chairs and fittings, will make it one of
the finest in the west. Manager Ber
kell says it will be the finest vaudeville
house In the three cities. Mr. Berkell
has made a great success of the busi
ness and is ready to invest more money
in Davenport. Work on the new thea
ter begins immediately and it will be
ready for the initial performance Sept

Kiplanatlnn of thr Principle of Ihe
"What western people have bei-.mie
accustomed to call the "Cnniplioll sys
tem of dry fanning"' consists simply in
the exorcise of Intelligence, care, pa
tience ami tireless industry. It differs
In detail from the good farming meth
ods practiced and tangly at the various
agricultural exieriiiient stations, but
the underlying principle are the same.
These principles are two in number:
First, to keep the surface of the land
under cultivation loose and finely pul
verized. This forms a soil mulch that
permits the rains and melting snows to
percolate readily through to the com
pacted soil teiieath and that at the
same time prevents the moisture stored
in the ground from being brought to
the surface by capillary attraction, to
be absorbed by the hot. dry air. The
second is to keep the subsoil finely pul
verized and firmly compacted, increas
ing its water lioldiug capacity and its
capillary attraction and placing it in
the lest possible physical condition for
the germination of seed and the devel
opment of plant roots. The dry farm
er thus stores water not in dams and
artificial reservoirs, but right where it
can be cached by the ruots of growing
Through these principles a rainfall of
twelve inches can be conserved so ef
fectively that it will produce better re
sults than are usually expected of an
annual precipitation of twenty-four
inches in humid America. The discov
erer and demonstrator of these prin
ciples deserves to rank among the
greatest of national benefactors. He
has not merely made two blades of
grass grow where only one grew before,
but he has made it possible to cover
with wheat and corn, nlfalfa and other
useful crops tens of thousands of square
miles of fertile land on which nothing
but sagebrush, cacti, Kansas sunflaw
ers and bunch grass are now found.

Summer Diarrhoea in Children
During the hot weather of the sum
mer months the first unnatural loose
ness of a child's bowels should have
immediate attention, so as to check the
disease before it becomes serious. AH
that is necessary is a few doses of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy followed by a dose of
castor oil to cleanse the system. Rev.
M. O. Stockland, pastor of the First
M. E. church. Little Falls. Minn.,
writes: We have used Chamberlain s
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
for several years and find it a very val
uable remedy, especially for summer

Looking for a Successor. Although
the school board would retain Gerard
T. Smith as school superintendent if
there were more than a mere possibil

Have City Court Room. Moline at
last has a suitable court room where
persons against whom city charges
have been preferred may be given
hearing or trial by the police magis
trate. A vault has been built in the
rear part of the room in the city hall,
some years ago used for housing the
volunteer hook and ladder truck, and
the front part of the room is now fitted
as a courtroom. Magistrate Frank
Gustafson held his first case in the new
room yesterday, and Emil DeJaeger
charged with disorderly conduct, was

Not to Lose the Band. A report em
anating from Sterling, from which city
the Sixth regiment band was transferr
ed to Moline when Ed Kittilsen sue
ceeded Colonel Jack Foster as head of
the regiment, to the effect that the
band is to be returned to Sterling is
vigorously denied by the colonel. W
N. Prestin, who is at the head of the
military band which was once the offi
cial band of tne regiment, is authority
for the statement that Colonel Kittil
sen Is so much disappointed with the
Moline band that he is looking about
for a band to succeed it. A further
statement is to the effect that the pos
sibility of Sterling securing the band
may also be counted on as a proba
bility. Colonel Kittilsen says there is
considerable dissension in the Moline
band at the present time, and that
while things are not altogether satis
factory, he expects the troubles will
take care of themeslves without out
side interference and that the Moline
band will continue as the official band
of the regiment.

In these days of adulterated foods
and food products such a food as is
known to be pure and wholesome is
indeed welcome. We have heard of
many breakfast foods and cereal prod
ucts some broadly advertised as whole
products, others as cure-alls for every
disease known to man. No doubt they
aro all good and possessed of some
msfit, but most of them are manufac
tured with some foreign sweetening
arrant to make them palatable. Among
all the breakfast and cereal foods of
fered the public to-day. we believe we
are warranted in saying that Malta
Vita Is the only food that is simply
nd wholly pure- grain product and
nothing else, except a little salt. Malta
Vita as it comes to-you from the fac
tory is all of the wheat. It has been
thoroughly cleaned, steamed to gela
tinize the starch, then added to it Is
barley malt extract made from selected
barley this, acting upon the starch,
turns it Into maltose or malt sugar,
pronounced by physicians and food ex
perts the finest, purest, most healthful
sweetening agent known. Then the
grain of wheat is rolls out flat Into a
