Doctors Could Not Cure Child
Grew Worse Face and Body
CURED BY CUTICURA
IN TWO WEEKS FOR 75c.
Mrs. George J. Steese, of 701 Coburn
St., Akron, Ohio, tells in the following
letter of another of those remarkable
cures or torturing,
disfiguring skin hu
mors daily made
by Cuticura ioap,
assisted by Cutic ura
physicians, and all
else had failed: "I
feel it my duty to pa-
a, suffering babies to
tell you what Cuti
cura has done for
my little daughter.
She broke out all over her body with a
humor, and we used everything recom
mended, but without results. I called
in three doctors, they all claimed they
could help her, but she continued to
grow worse. I lor body was a mass of
pores, and her little face was being
eaten away;. her ears looked as if they
would drop oft". Neighbors advised me
to get Cuticura Soap and Ointment, and
before I had used half of the cake of
Soap and box of Ointment the sores had
all healed, and my little one's face and
body were as c lear as a new-born bule's.
I would not be without it again if it
cost five dollars, instead of seventy-five
cents, which is all it cost us to cure
our baby, after spending many dollars
on doctors and medicines without any

of her children, the little- daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Virgin has had a
hard time of it. She is now living
with a Martin family, the members of

Telephone Company Files Bill. At
torneys for the Central Union Tele
phone company filed a bill of excep
tions at Springfield yesterday to the
answer filed by the city of Moline on
the ground that the allegations in the
answer were all impertinent and imma
terial to the issue and also for the fur
ther reason that the answer is insuffi
cient in law and does not deny the
allegations of the bill. After the tele
phone company had filed its petition
for an Injunction restraining the city
from interfering in the extension of
the company's lines, the city attorney
filed an answer in which he denied the
allegations to a certain extent and set
out the fact to show that the city coun
cil had grounds to repeal the franchise
Well Going Dry. "You'll never miss
the water till the well runs dry" is the
tune that is being bummed by Alfred
Freed, who has charge of Prospect
park. The cause for the outburst of
this popular air is the fact that the ar
tesian well at the park has ceased to
flow. For several years past the
stream has been growing smaller and
last summer it was exceedingly small.
This summer it has not improved in
the least, and about two weeks ago it
stopped running. When the water
stopped to flow an investigation was
made. Nothing definitely was learned,
and in a few days Mr. Freed was hap
pily surprised to see the water once
more trickling out of the large pipe
But it soon ceased again, only to start
again in a few days. This has continu
ed for some time, but the steady flow
has not been resumed.
Recall Pastor. At the quarterly con
ference of the Swedish Methodist
church Saturday evening the congre
gation again voted to request that Pas
tor J. P. Miller be returned to this
charge. This will be the third year in
Moline for Mr. Miller, and the unani
mous desire to have him returned is a
splendid appreciation of the good work
he is doing.
Reunited at Dance. A happy re
union was the result of a commonplace
remark made at the Watch Tower
dance last Friday evening. A separa
tion of almost 15 years was brought to
an end through a clue that John Hur
ley, better known about here as John
Kinney, an employe of the Velie Car
riage company, picked up from the con
versation of Miss Gertie Shields of
Davenport, and on Saturday Mr. Hur
ley was reunited with his sister whom
he had sought for the greater part of
his life. His sister, Agnes Hurley, is
employed as stenographer at the Na
tional Employment bureau in Daven
port. Fifteen years ago she was sep
arated from her brother, following the
death of their parents within a short
time of each other. They were both
children then, and John was placed in
the care of a family in Keokuk named
Kinney, and his sister was placed un
der the care of Rev. Father Reilly of
the same city. The family gradually
drifted apart, and John lost track of
his sister. He has made many quests
to find her, and a story of them would
include careful searches of the west
ern states, two trips across the con
tinent, and even visits to European
countries. As Mr. Hurley was dancing
with Gertie Shields at the Tower she
spoke of a remarkable resemblance she
had discovered between him and a
friend cf hers named Agnes Hurley.
Struck by the coincidence his sister's
name and the resemblance to himself
Hurley sought out his partner's friend
