'"For a long time I was troubled with a weakness which seemed to
drain all my strength away. I had dull headaches, was nervous,

course of procei.Vrc. W. E. Clark was
examined by C. B. Haffenberg, a Chi
cago attorney representing the major
ity of the creditors. This examination
was cursory, but brought out that the
company's properties are in good con
dition, that its product had proved
readily marketable and that for a
young firm it had not, except in the
point of management, experienced sd
rious difficulties. In view of these
facts the formation of a new company
is regarded as a possible and profitable
course. The good will which the de
funct concern secured during its year
of existence would in this way be con
served. Saturday's creditors' meeting
took place in the office of Referee i:i
Bankruptcy Adair Pleasants in Rock

creditors and five creditors were pres
ent. Benjamin S. Bell of Moline was
appointed trustee, and his bond was
placed at $13,000. The aggregate
amount of liabilities filed to date is
about $90,000. An estimate of the
value of the company's assets mado
Saturday places the figure at about
$120,000. These assets arc largely In
the form of real estate, buildings, ma
