THE ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1907.
NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS
Stein .signed a statement at Mercy hos-1 A. Moore was elected president and
Name Will Be "Davenport." J. F.
Gorman of Harrison & Gorman, pro
prietors of the new hotel, definitely an
nounces that it has been decided to re
tai i the name of "The Davenport,"
which already stands graven in stone
abive the portals of the handsome
building. Public approval of this de
cision will be general. Mr. Gorman
als states that the hotel management
is awaiting the arrival of all the radi
atoia and electric light fixtures, which
an now long overdue. The delay in
th( arrival of these items will prevent
tht new hotel from being thrown open
to the public as soon as expected. It
will now be impossible to open the
house much before Nov. 1.
Feady to Remove Girders. Division
Superintendent J. M. Brown . of the
Ito-'k Island road states that prepara
tions are being made for starting work
nev: Monday on the new viaducts to
rep tare the present girder bridges at
Mam and Harrison streets. This an
nouncement, however, does not mean
thi the girders are to be torn out im
mediately, for considerable prepara
tory work is necessary before this can
be -lone. It is this preparatory work
thai will be started Monday, and as it
im,.ns the removal of the girders in
the near future, the announcement will
be a welcome one to the residents of
r.o One Will Prosecute. It now
seems impossible to find anyone who
is 'filling to prosecute the two Green
brcrhers, charged with assault with in
ten to commit murder on the person
of panics Stein, an employe at the Pitts-

pital to the effect he did not wish and
would nor prosecute the Greens. The
two brothers were thereupon released
from the county jail and were later ar
rested in Moline on a warrant signed
by two of Stein's fellow employes at
the Pittsburg Plate Glass company.
These parties on Saturday, after they
had learned of the release of the Green
brothers, demanded their rearrest and
prosecution. Sunday, however, they
hunted up County Attorney Ilamann
and were equally as anxious to have
the matter dropped and the Greens
again let go. The county attorney,
however, refused to accede to their re
quest and told them they would now
have to prosecute or be held for at
tempted extortion. It appears the two
men were only desirous of holding the
Greens until they had paid Stein's hos
pital and doctor bills, and had offered
to withdraw the charges if they paid
Wife Hunting Dr. Gordon. Mrs. Tes-
sie Gordon, accompanied by her 11
year-old son Carl, arrived in Davenport
yesterday from Connersville, Ind., in
search of their husband and father. Dr.
George C. Gordon. The latter is a doc

known as a traveling specialist. Inas
much as in the past he has traveled un
der several different names, Mrs. Gor

locate him, but believes he was in Dav

since that time they have not heard a
word from him.

Burglars Get Much Loot. H. C.
Struck, cashier of the Davenport Sav
ings bank, residing at C25 Ripley street,
eports that burglars entered the kitch
en window of his home some time af
ter 3 o'clock yesterday morning by
prying open the sash, and thence pass
ed into the interior of the house, peer-
into places where valuables were
kept. The burglars stole Mrs. Struck's
kitehen purse, containing $7 or $S,
then entered the dining room and from
a drawer in the sideboard hauled out
two dozen valuable silver spoons wrap
ped in chamois skin. They either over
looked or did not appreciate half a doz-
en fine souvenir spoons lying unwrap
ped in the same drawer, and Mr. Struck
especially rejoices that the marauders
did not carry away with them a meer
schaum cigaiholder from the "old coun
try" which he values at $20 and which
also lay in plain sight. The rooms oc
cupied by the two sons, Dr. Kuno H.
Struck and Henry Waldo Struck, were
next entered and two fine gold watches
stolen. One of these watches was a
present from Dr. S. H. Wessel, since
deceased. The names of the owners
are engraved inside the cases.

The first symptom of Contagious Elood Poison is usually a little sore or
til -er which does not always excite suspicion because of its insignificance ;
but as the poison becomes more firmly rooted in the blood, the mouth and
throat ulcerate, copper-colored spots appear, a rash breaks out on the body.
the hair begins to come out, glands in the neck and groins swell, and often
ul crating sores form on the limbs, hands or face. But this is not all : if
th poison is allowed to remain it works down and attacks the bones, causing
necrosis or decay, and makes a complete physical wreck of the sufferer. It
vrul not do to tamper with a disease so powerful as Contagious Blood Poison,
for every day the virus remains in the blood the trouble is progressing
toward a more dangerous stage, and may in the end get beyond the reach of
any treatment. There is but one certain, reliable cure for Contagious Blood
Poison, and that is S. S. S., the greatest of all blood purifiers. This remedy
atiacks the disease in the right way by going down into the blood and
forcing out every particle of the poison. It makes the blood pure and rich,
strengthens the different parts of the body, tones up the system and cures
this humiliating and destructive disorder permanently. The improvement
commences as soon as the patient gets under the influence of S. S. S. and
continues until every vestige of the poison is driven from the blood, and the
sufferer completely restored to health. S. S. S. is not an experiment, it is a
suocess and has cured thousands of cases of Contagious Blood Poison in
every stage, and being entirely free from minerals, is a safe as well as certain
treatment. If you are suffering with this debasing disease get the poison
out of your blood with S. S. S before it does further damage. Special home

The Cause of Many
There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decej-
tive. Slany sudden
deaths are caused
by it heart dis
heart failure or
apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
allowed toad vance
the k idne y-poison-ed
blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
treatment of the kidueys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain iu passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
