the bases and it looked rather blue for
the Islanders for a time. It was Vali

SOME NEW FOOTBALL RULES
Committee Makes Regulations Regard
ing Forward Pass.
New York. May 20. Two changes ?:i
football rules for the coming season
were adopted by the intercollegiate
football rules committee Saturday.
The first rule provides that in case
of a forward pass the players must be
at least a vard back from the line when
ihe play is begun. This rule was adopr
ed to remove the ambiguity of the old
rule whether the players were on ill
end of the scrimmage line or behind
The other rule provides that a for
ward pass crossing a goal line on th-1
bound or rolling, whether before or af
ter being legally touched, shall count
as a touchback to the defenders of the

Who Wanted to Take Excursion.
Fully 1,000 pleasure seekers attended
the Moline East End Athletic club ex

boat left Rock Island at 10 o'clock yes
terday morning and arrived in Musca
tine about 1:11 in the afternoon, leav
ing on the return trip at .1 o'clock, and
arriving at Rock Island shortly after
! o'clock. The newly organized ROck
Island Marine band of 20 pieces fur

My Best Friend.
Alexander Uenton, who lives on Ru

"Dr. King's New Discovery is by best
earthly friend. It cured me of asthma
six years ago. It has also performed
a wonderful cure of incipient consump
tion for my son's wife. The first bottle
ended the terrible cough, and this ac
complished, the other symptoms left
one by one, until she was peiferctly
well. Dr. King's New Discovery's pow
er over coughs and colds is simply mar
velous." No other remedy has ever
