Among the different plans which are
being worked out by the various com
mittees in charge of this work is the
raising c;f $250,000 for a general fund.
The movement for raising this sum
was started three years ago at the an
nual synodical meeting held in Paxton.
111. The matter was again brought up
at the last meeting held by the synod
last June at Denver. It was then de
ci!ed to leave the plans for the raising
of the quarter of a million dollars in
the bands of the president of the insti
tution. Dr. Gustav Andreen. and the
board of directors. The plans have
b'en completed and work is now well

Reck Island Southern to Start Fourth
Survey Monday Know in 10
An important conference of officials
of the Rock Island Southern interur
ban was held yesterday at Galesburg.
In an interview J. W. Walsh stated
that in 10 days the officials would be
able to make a definite announcement
of the route which would be taken to
Rock Island, whether it would start
from Galesburg or Monmouth. Two
surveys. have already been made from
each city and another from the village
of Cameron. Next Monday the survey
ing party will start on a third survey
to Rock Island from Galesburg and
much depends on the result of this fin
al inspection of routes from which city
the line will start.
WAGER OF BATTLE.
The First Duel Are tin Id to
lleeu FuuhIiI In Italy.
The first duels were fought iu Italy,
according to Millingen, who speaks of
a manuscript discovered at C'assel and
describes a duel lift ween a father and
a son in the reign of the Emperor The
odjric. When Charlemagne forbade
wager of battle among the Lombards
he encountered the fiercest opposition
from the nobles. Early in the ninth
century le Medicis, u knight, defeated
iu single combat the bandit Mugel.
who devastated the Florentine district
now called after him, Mugello. Otho
U. granted the prayer of the nobility
for the re-establlshment of wager of
buttle in 9.SS. Women ami priests
were not compelled to accept it. The
Normans showed less gallantry. With
them a woman had to accept, nor could
she name a champion. Her male op
ponent, however, was buried to his
waist in the earth. Armed with a
club, he tried to strike her as she cir
cled around him. his weapon being &
ball of iron at the end of a cord. If he
failed to touch her at the third at
tempt he was vanquished, which
meant to him death with dishonor.
Beccariii says that the reason so
many duels were fought in Italy in
the early days is that where the law
does not afford protection one must
look to single combat to retain the re
spect of one's fellow men. In the mid
dle ages the ferocity of Italian duels
passes belief. "Any way of putting au
enemy to death ('ogul modo') is good
enough," says one of their writers.
"When an Italian spares his vanquish
ed adversary," says Brantome, "he
maims his arms and legs and gives
him as a memento of his kindness and
generosity a hideous gash across the
fate." Lampagnano practiced on n
painted model of Galeazzo Sforza be
fore Jie stabbed him. Dueling was
called "la scieuza cavalleresea." Coru
DRINK MORE, EAT LESS.
Advice For Tlione With Rheumatitm,
(lout, Kexemn and Neuralgia.
If people would take less nutrition
and drink more water, there would be
less rheumatism, gout, eczema and
neuralgia in the world. The most fre
quent cause of these derangements la
an excess of uutritive materials. The
blood Is surcharged with salts that
are not needed in the system.
The doctors are trying to remedy
these diseases by giving something to
eliminate the salts, such as purgatives,
diuretics and solvents of various
kinds. The rational way,- however, to
cure such affections Is to stop the
cause. Drink more water: eat less
meat and concentrated foods. This
shuts off the supply of urates In the
Those who take active exercise in
the ojen air every day require a great
er amount of nutrition. Not only do
they use up the nutritive materials lu
muscular exercise, but the amount of
oxygen Inhaled because of their activ
ities thoroughly oxidizes the urates and
changes them in urea. If the blood Is
loaded with urates they are very like
ly to crystallize, especially in those
portions of the body where the circula
tion Is the least and the temperature
is the lowest, such as the elbows, an
kles, the toes and fingers. . ' :
Drink more . water; eat less .food.
This is a prescription that is -worth
more to such people thah all the drugs
iu the world. Shut off the source of
urate poisoning and the effects of
urate poisoning will disappear. Ex

they rushed,. When th rain stopped
they came out and, to their surprise,
found a cheetah sitting licking the

deprive his visitors of their shelter the
polite creature had sat outside in the

and gracefully wagging his tall, the
