NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS
Had Spurious Checks. Deputy Sher
iff John J. Marinan returned Saturday
night from ML Pleasant, where he
took Den Harloff, and while he was in
Mt. Pleasant two men who had been in
Davenport recently were arrested there
having in their possession a number
of checks which, the police think are
forged. The two men ga the names
of Carl Anderson and J. N. Sullivan,
the former claiming to be one of
"Three Grooms," vaudeville artists do
ing a trick roller skating and acrobatic
stunt. . Anderson was in the act of try
ing to pass one of the checks when the
two were arrested for beating a board
bill in Fairfield. The checks were all
made payable to William A. Williams
of Omaha, Neb., whose address the
man had recorded as 287 Eighth street,
Omaha, Neb., and they were all drawn
on the First National bank of Omaha.
The checks purported to be signed by
II. IT. Ramsey, manager of the Omaha
Portrait company. He also had in his
possession a letter addressed to
"George A. Groom, Des Moines, Io-"" "
'bearing a postmark of Battle Creek,
Mich., and another letter addressed to

all its tiers of arches, could be easily

and all, could be built within the space

According to reports from the vari
ous countries interested In sports In
all parts of the world, the assembly of
athletes will be the greatest both in
quality, and quantity that ever com
peted for international honors. France,
Germany, Greece, the United States
and many other nations aside from
England and the British colonies will
be represented by a host o? entrants,
and the winner of any special event
can well be termed champion of the
world In his particular specialty.
The Olympic games will be held un
der the auspices of the British Olym
pic council. The American committee,
which has been appointed in accord
ance with the wishes of Lord Desbor-
ougb as president of the Olympic coun
cil, is a representative;one, the honora
ry president being Theodore' Roosevelt,

Whitney, president. - and Julian W.
Curtiss of Yale, treasurer.
No athletes of the United States will
be permitted to compete in the Shep

vidual entry. He must be a member
of the American team and eutered as
such by the American Olympic com
mittee. Only native born or natural
ized Americans, either residents of the
United States or having migrated to
foreign countries within recent years,
will be eligible for the team.
While it is not likely that any of
them will be used, the United States
has quite a few athletes in England
itself, who in case of necessity or in
the event of them showing such class
that they would be entitled to places
on the team can be called, upon to

"Of course I have," he answered. "I

into the idea if I hadn't. What I pro

come to the surface often they will
have to be sought on the bottom at

will necessitate a modification of the

shoot a: harpoon into a sea serpent one
will have to go fishing for him. The
apparatus will be dragged along the
bottom of the sea by a ship. Attached
to the bait will be a liomb. When the

swallow the bomb, too. for It needn't

NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY
When a medicine has stood the test for a period of more than two gen
erations and is then more popular than ever, there can be no doubt of its
merit. This is the record of S. S. S. Its period of existence is marked by a
long line of cures of blood and skin diseases of every character, and its value
in the treatment of such troubles has become so well known that it is today
the most extensively used blood medicine on the market. For Rheumatism,
Catarrh, Scrofula, Sores and Ulcers, Skin Diseases and all other troubles
due to an impure or poisoned condition of the blood, S. S. S. has no equal.
It counteracts and drives out the poisons, humors and germs, cleanses the
system of all unhealthy matter, cures the disease permanently and restores
strong, robust health. Whfe the blood is weak or anaemic, and unable to
furnish the body with the nourishment and strength it needs, S. S. S.-sup-plies
it with the healthful properties and acts splendidly in toning up and
reinvigorating the system. It goes down to the very bottom of all blood
disorders, and in this way 'reaches inherited taints on which the ordinary
blood medicines have no effect. Not only is S. S. S. certain in its results,
but it is at the same time an absolutely safe remedy. It is made entirely of
roots, herbs and barks of known healing and curative value. It does not
contain the slightest trace of mineral in any form to damage the delicate'
parts of the system, and may be used by children with the same good results
and perfect safety as by older people. It is not an experiment to use S. S. S.;
it is a remedy with a record and one that has proven its worth by its forty
years of successful service. If you are in need of a blood puri6er for any
cause begin the use of S- S. S., write our physicians and they will send you
a book copcerning your trouble, and will give without charge any special
medical advice that" is required. -
