The year 1903 will long be remember

He writes: "Severe bleeding from the
lungs and a frightful cough had brought
me at death's door, when I began tak

sumption, with the astonishing result
that after taking tour bottles I was
completely restored and as time has
proven permantly cured." Guaranteed

Recent announcement of an active
campaign for extensions on both endo
of the Muscatine North & South rail
way gives- added reason for the btliof
already entertained in some quarters
that an Iowa interurban line is being
planned to enter the lower end of Rod:
Island county, nossiblv crossing the
Mississippi river from Davenport a few
miles below this city.
The Muscatine North & South will
start a surveying force out next week
to run a line from Muscatine to Daven
port on the other side of the river. It
is announced that several routes will
be surveyed. At the same time plans
are afoot for ay extension of the road
from Elrick Junction south of Burling
ton. The road is now steam, but it is
asserted that when one or both of the
extensions are completed it will -bt.
changed to electric, giving a continu
ous trolley line from Davenport to Bur
DrniniiiK llsiy Land.
It is understood that the men who
recently purchased the Muscatine
North & South, which had been in tho
hands of a receiver for a number of
years, are deeply interested in th
project for the dyking and drainage of
the Boston bay land. They are said to
have secured options on thousands of
acres and have been the main factors
in getting the present drainage schenu;
under way. Possibly this was done as
an independent venture, but it woul i
indicate that there might be something
else in view. An interurban across the
Muscatine high bridge into the improv
ed tract aud connecting with AKdo
may be the ultimate object, or u niav
be that a line up the river on this sid
is in view.
The North &. South road is a feeder
for the Iowa Central, and the sinn1
capital that is giving the Iowa Central
new life and is back of the Chicago.
loliet & Kansas City, which promises
o give the Iowa Central a terminus in
Chicago, may be working on the Musca
DriiinnKe 1'rojcct Through Court.
Plans for the drainage of the Boston
bay tract are progressing as rapidly as
possible. The matter has been before
the county court of Mercer county and
no objections have been tiled. The
commissioners have been instructed t;
make an apportionment of the cost to
ach land owner and file a report. Tho
total estimated cost is $211,000, which
will be raised by a special assessment
on the lands benefited, and the benefit1
accruing from the protection afforded
by the levee, and also the benefit from
the drainage, will be taken into consul-
ration, and the total cost apportione I
accordingly. Some of the lands will bo
benefited more by the levee than oth-
rs, and some will be benefited nior.
by the drainage than others. When
the special assessment has been con
firmed, bonds will be issued and soi l
for the purpose of raising the neces
sary funds. These bonds will be for
the term of 20 years, with deferred
payments for the first two or thre;
years, so that no payments will fall
due until about the year 1010, which
will enable .every land owner to raise
two or three "bumper" crops and put
them all on "easy street." A similar
levee recently constructed on the Iowa
sido of the river has enabled the farm
ers to raise some marvelous crops.
Start In Sprinjr.
Modern machinery will greatly facil
itate the construction of the levee and
canals. The commissioners will prob
ably make report of the special assess
ment early in January, and work will
begin as soon as the ground thaws out
in the spring. Two years will be re
quired to complete the work.
The levee to be constructed for the
Mercer county district will begin at a
point on the river bank a mile south of
the county line, and continue down the
river to within about a mile of New
Boston, and then turning north to Eng
lish Bend, will proceed east from ther.
to the bluff. A large dam will be con
structed at English Bend and an im
mense pumping plant put in there.
There will also be Hood gates there, to
be opened when necessary.

RAY ELLIOTT, "HARRY ROSS" OF IOWA,

Kidnaped by gypsies when a tod

and sent to the reform school, from
which he is now on parole. Ray Elliott

The lad has now violated his parole
by disappearing from Cedar Rapids
with 33 belonging to Milton Kucera,
a grocer in that city. Efforts are be

returned to EMora upon his capture.
Sheriff Iper and Chief of Police
Jones have both been notified to keep
a watch out for him.
Young Elliott created someihing of
a sensation when before the court :t
couple of years ago in Des Moines.
He declared that he had learned to
steal when a prisoner of the gypsies,
who had made a thief of him.
Young Elliott was for a time known
as the Charley Ross of Iowa. Ho was
playing in front of his house at Ma

along. They picked him up and suc
ceeded in getting avay with him. No
attempt was made lo secure a ran

simply kept him to asist in their light
fingered pursuits. He was found when
a band camped at Hello IMaine two
years later and he was returned to his
parents, who had mourned him as
