WORK NOT TO BE
RESUMED TILL FALL
Flooded Cable Shaft to Remain Idle
This Summer Repair Work
It is probable that work will not bo
resumed in the Coal Valley Minin
company's Cable mine until next fa'!.
Practically all the water has been
drained ami pumped out of the mine,
but there is a large amount of silt le.'t
that will have to be cleared awav.
When the water came into the mine,
everything in the place was wet to th-?
back of the structure. In pumping out
the mine the men found only the wool
en parts of the tools that had been
lost, showing that the other part, the
iron or metal, had been eaten away.
The men at work pumping out the wa
ter and making repairs will finish the
work about April 1. The force that
was working in the mine, as well as
the clerical force, has been transferred
Nail Shot Into Cow's Heart. John
Christiansen, living on the Coaltown
road, had a fine cow ailing for several
weeks. Veterinarians could not tell
what the trouble was, and as there
seemed to be no hope for recovery the
animal was killed and sent to the ren
dering plant in Davenport with the
understanding it was to be examined.
Investigation revealed a long wire nail
penetrating the heart of the animal. It
was not rusty and apparently had been
shot into the body of the cow.
Will Not Advance Milk. All thoughts
of advancing the price of milk to S
cents a quart in Moline this spring
have been abandoned by the milk deal
ers. For a time there was. strong talk
of doing this, but at a recent confer

not be practical. The dealers at the
present time are getting 7 cents a
quart for milk, and several of thorn
say that they cannot expect to raise
the price when spring is just opening.

to call a doctor as his wife hail taken

livery barn that he lived in the west

the home and the woman must have
been given relief, because no suicide-
was reported at the police station. The
doctor positively refused to talk about
the ma' tor. saying that he had been
instructed not to mention the affair.
Later in the evening the man returned
to the livery barn ami said that his
name was McMann. .Nothing further
was learned about him or the case.

She can't make clothes clean with cold water and a
coarse, resin-filled soap. Then why attempt to wash
that way? To have absolute cleanliness in linen,
summer fabrics, bedding and flannels, boil them with
a large cake of white soap with marvelous cleans

most stubborn stain, opens up the threads in the
labric; and dissolves the dirt. No chemicals to harm
either clothes or hands just pure soap that sweetens,
purines and brightens everything. Sets colors,
keeps flannels from shrinking, and when the wash
is done, cleans up everything. Splendid for glass,

WORSE FROM YEAR TO YEAR
The cause of Rheumatism is an excess of uric acid in the blood, brought
on by indigestion, chronic constipation, weak Lidneys and a general slug
gish condition of the entire system. The refuse and waste matter of the
body is not carried out as nature intends, but is left to ferment and sour and
generate uric acid, which is absorbed into the blood. The first evidence of
Rheumatism is usually little wandering pains in the muscles and joints, or
a tender, sensitive place on the flesh. These are often so slight that nothing;
is thought of them and they pass away; but with each recurrence the trouble
becomes more severe, and from slight wandering pains and excited nerves.
Rheumatism grows to be a painful and almost constant trouble. The longer
the poison remains in the blood the firmer hold the trouble gets on the S3-s-tem.
Each day the acid deposit is increasing and the disease grows worse
from year to j-ear. After awhile the joints become coated with a corrosive
substance which seriously interferon with their working and movements
and sometimes they become ptrmanently stiff and useless. S. S. S.
