TO GO TO DAVENPORT
Momentarily Forget Bridge Traffic is
Closed Emergency Service
"Change for Davenport!" tang out
the conductors on tlio Third and Fourth
avenue car lines at Twentieth street
and Third avenue this morning. Then
Ihcy "nastily corrected themselves, to
the amusement of the passengers. For
beginning today there Is no car service
between Rock Island and Davenport by
way of the Twenty-fourth street bridge,
that structure having been closed to
t rattle at 1 o'clock this morning by or-'
der of Lieutenant Colonel llohbs of
Hock Island arsenal. The on'.y car
service is via the Forty-second street
bridge, an emergency service having
been inaugurated to handle the traffic
during the three months that the bridge
is to be closed.

Karly this morning the employes of
Hay tie &. Hewitt, the contractors who
are constructing the new Twenty-fourth
street bridge, began to remove the
floors and superstructure of the old.
bridge. By noon the work was well ad
vanced, and even had the bridge not
been officially closed it would have
been impossible for a team to cross it.
In a short times the entire superstruc
ture of the old bridge will be gone, and
the work of replacing it witli the new
and modern girder spans will be com
menced. Work on one of the new piers
has been completed, and two others are
almost finished. The work from now
on will be watched with interest.
It is expected that it will lie fully
three months before traffic over the
new structure will be permitted.

British naval experts regard rcciprol

press great surprise that the United
States is laying down two big battle
ships to be fitted with this kind of en

experimenting with unknown remedies
for ailments of the stomach, liver and
bowels, why not get a bottle of Hos-
tetter's Stomach Bitters at once? It
l;as been the recognized standard among
medicines for all such disorders for
over 54 years, and as it always pays to
get the best insist on having Hostet
ter's. In hundreds of case's it has ef
fected a cure when all others had fail-
