WAS REMARKABLE ASCENSION
Professor Hunt, at Watch Tower, Went
Higher Than for Years.
The balloon ascension made yester
day at the Watch Tower by Professor
Hunt of Springfield, was a remarkable
one. Mr. Hunt stating that he. went
higher and farther yesterday than on
any ascension in 12 years. The pecu
liar weather conditions were such that
the balloon passed above the low
clouds, and for some few minutes the
balloon was out of sight of the specta
tors. When Mr. Hunt cut loose the
parachute the wind carried it on quite
a distance, instead of allowing it to
drop rapidly. The parachute landed
near Ninth avenue and Twenty-ninth
street In this city.

At the adjourned meeting of the city
council last evening, in committee of
the whole, a special committee com
posed of C. C. Wilson, A. G. Anderson,
R. C. Benson, Charles Smith, and F.
E. Robbins, with the mayor and city
attorney, was appointed to make an in
vestigation of conditions bearing on the
proposed amendment to the telephone
ordinance under which the new tele
phone company is operating. The com
mittee is instructed, by a resolution of
the council, to determine the capital In
vested here by the company, the cost
of maintenance and operation of the
system, the earnings, to gather data re
garding rates under similar conditions
elsewhere, and to present a written
opinion of the city attorney on the ex
isting ordinance and the proposed

H. W. Miller, general auditor of the
telephone company, and E. J. Burns,
the general manager of the exchange
here, were present, and explained the
company's situation, offering to give
their own services and those of the
entire office force to assist the council
in such an investigation as is to be
made. City Attorney Olsen expressed
himself as skeptical ofthe advantage
of any examination of the company's
books, but the council and the mayor
were inclined to accept the assurance
of the company's representatives that
access will be had to all of the books,
and every detail shown. The commit
tee will begin its work shortly and will
make an exhaustive report to the coun
cil. The question of party lines will
probably be embodied in the report, as
when the matter was brought up last
evening Mr. Burns stated that it is the
plan of the company to install such
service to meet the demands for tele
phones at cheaper rates than would ex
ist should the maximum rate be in
creased. Xo Waatr Paprr Boif.
The council took up the proposed or
dinance providing for the erection of
waste paper boxes by R. II. Taylor or
his assigns, and after a thorough dis
cussion the council, as a committee of
the whole, voted to report adversely on
the ordinance. The proposition was in
every sense an advertising scheme, the
ordinance submitted providing that Mr.
Taylor should have exclusive privilege
of installing such boxes in the city for
10 years, and that he should have the
exclusive right to the advertising space
on these boxes. This advertising feat
ure is what the council objected to,
and it was on account of the general
objection to this kind of advertising
that the council acted unfavorably on
the ordinance. Without advertisins;,
the boxes might be a benefit, but with
this feature the boxes would probably
prove a nuisance, was the position cf

LOOK INTO DEATH
Suspicion of Foul Play Connected
With Death of Mrs. Clan
cey at Aledo.
INQUEST HELD TOMORROW
Husband Did Not Tell of Hanging Till
After Physician Noticed Marks
Aledo, 111., Aug. 9. (Special). Ad
ditional mysterious circumstances have
been found to surround the death of
Mrs. Clay Glancey, who died here yes
terday morning as a result of a hemor
rhage, following an alleged attempt at
suicide. Developments in the case to
day lead the authorities to believe that
she may have been the victim of foul
play and the inquest has been contin
ued until tomorrow morning at 9
o'clock. It was only after an examina
tion by the physician in charge who
noticed marks on her throat, that, in
explanation the husband said that he
had found her hanging in an outhouse
and that she had tried to commit sui
cide. The fact that she was taken with a
hemorrhage together with the marks
on her throat appears mysterious and
the case will be investigated.

MUST NOT SHOOT CHICKENS
Season for Them Will Not Be Open
Till 1909 According to Law.
Many sportsmen are under the im
pression that prairie chickens will have
an open season next year, 1907. but
such is not the case. In July, 1903,
the state legislature passed a law ex
empting prairie chickens for four
years, and the last session of the leg
islature took the matter up again and
added another four years, so It will be
unlawful to kill prairie chickens be
fore the year 1909.

Sometimes Help the Hair to Go.
In any changeable climate the hair
is apt to become brittle and to break
off stubby here and there. This makes
a hair dressing almost a necessity, es
pecially to ladies. In using a hair dress
ing, why not get the best, one that
combines with it the efficiency in kill
ing the dandruff germ, tho germ that
eats the hair off at the roots, causing
what is called falling hair, and in time
baldness. Newbro's Herpicide is that
kind of a hair dressing. You have no
idea bow delightful your scalp will feel,
and how stylish your hair will appear,
after an application or two of Herpi
cide. It is certainly a wonderful inno
vation as a scalp antiseptic and hair
dressing. Sold by leading druggists.
