Davenporter Drowns at Montrose.
.'olm Behrons, aged 20 years, son of
Contractor John Behrens, 1003 West
Fifth street, the well known house mov
er, was drowned in the Mississippi riv-
r at Montrose, Iowa, early Saturday
morning. The first intimation of the
drowning in Davenport was received
through a telephone message to th
police stition. The young man joined
tue Boston Bloomer (J iris company
about three weeks ago at Waukesha
Wis., and was employed on the steam-
or "Nellie," which conveyed them to

Swimmer Drowns. Harry McDon
ald, known in Bucktown as "Dopey
Henry," a piano player at the various
east end resorts, was drowned Satur
day afternoon at the foot of Harrison
street. McDonald had stripped off his
clothes on a sand barge nearby and
put on a pair of trunks. Thus prepar
ed, he took a plunge in the water and
almost immediately was seized with
cramps and sank to the bottom before
help could reach him. McDonald had
for years been known as a heavy drink
er, and it is supposed ho was over
heated when he jumped into the water,
and this, together with the liquor in
his system, made him an easy victim.
The body was recovered by some boys
in bathing nearby and ho was towed to
shore. The ambulance was summoned

Would Add 5,000 to Population. Al
though no definite action has yet been
taken with the resolution passed by
the city council, authorizing the street
committee, board of public works, and
city attorney to devise plans for the
extension of the city limits, the matter
is being gmcrally discussed, more par
ticularly by the members of the coun
cil. The most extensive plan proposed
is one which would bring considerable
territory within the limits on all sides
nd increase the population of th4
city by over 5,000. This plan that, ac
cording to City Attorney Scott, is re
ceiving favorable comment from the
city officials, includes the annexation
of Bcttendorf and the extension of the
limits on the north to include the Or
phans' Home and on the west to in
clude Schtietzen park and Nahant. Two
different methods of procedure would
have to be adopted to effect this.

Long experience and thorough testing have proven S. S. S. to be the
King of blood purifiers and the greatest of all tonics. For nearly half a
century S. S. S. has been used in the treatment of blood and skin diseases
of every character, and so satisfactory have been the results that it is now
the best known and most widely used blood medicine on the market. S. S. S.
r.ttracted attention as soon as it was placed on the market by curing
promptly those diseases for which it was recommended, and we have so
jealously guarded its first good reputation, by keeping it up to its standard
in manufacture, that it now has the unequalled and pleasing record of
"Forty Years Of Cur 08m" For Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula,
Sores and Ulcers, Malaria, Skin Diseases, Contagious Blood Poison, and all
other diseases due to an impure or poisoned condition of the blood, there is
nothing that equals S. S. S. It counteracts and removes the germs and
poisons, cleanses the system of all unhealthy matter, cures the trouble per
manently, and restores strong, robust health. Where the blood is weak or
anaemic and unable to nourish the system as it should, S. S. S. supplies it
with the needed properties, and being a bracing, invigorating tonic it builds
up the entire system. It goes to the very bottom of all blood disorders, and
in this way reaches deep-seated and inherited cases on which the ordinary
sarsaparillas ana tonics nave little or no ettect. .Not only is S. S. S
certain in its results, but it is an absolutely safe medicine. It enjoys
the distinction of being the only blood medicine on the market that is guar
