Theater t Employes Too Young.
Mrs. C. W. Sandstrom was fined $5
and costs yesterday afternoon for vio
lation of the child labor law. J. M.
Patterson, a deputy inspector, swore
out the warrant, and as Mrs. Sand
strom pleaded ignorance of the law he
recommended a minimum fine. The
specific charge against Mrs. Sandstrom
was that, she employed William Funck,
a boy under 10 years of age, after 7
p. m. The child labor law provides
that no boy under 1G years of age may
work more than eight hours a day,
cither with or without a certificate,
and that the hours must be between
7 a. m. and 7 p. m. Under no circum
stances is a boy allowed to work after
7 p. m. Mrs. Sandstrom holds the con
cession of selling confectionary in the
Moline theater, and the boys employ-1
ed by her begin work there about j

not be less than $14,000, it is thought,
as the first consideration under the
new plans will be to provide adequate
facilities for the children and over-l
come some of the undesirable -features
of the destroyed building, which was
soon found to be ill adapted to the
needs of the village. The new school
house will probably not be started till
late in the spring, and it will not be!
ready for occupancy till close to the
first of the new year. The school
board Tuesday evening completed

Close Call on Ice. Roy Kracke, son

both of whom are employed at the
Bettendorf Axel company, had an ex

Both were nearly drowned in an en

from the wing dam to the Illinois
shore at Twenty-fifth street. The ice
was full of holes arid both fell in sev

from the Illinois shore at Twenty-fifth

Mrs. Anna Maring of Dennison, Clark

route No. 1. box 57, has recently had
a remarkable experience with one of
the Cooper preparations, which are in
growing demand at the Harper house
pharmacy in Rock Island, the reading
of which will prove most interesting,
and regarding which she says:
'"For years I have suffered agony
from stomach trouble. I could uot eat
anything without having the greatest
distress afterward. My appetite was
poor did not care to eat afraid of
the results that were sure to follow.
My digestive organs did nor perform
their proper functions, and were a
source of much pain. Gas formed on
my stomach, affecting the action of the
heart, and my bowels were in a wretch
"I tried everything I could hear of
for relief, but to no purpose. I be
came weak and run down and greatly
discouraged. I began to feel that there
was no hope for me. I could do scarce
ly any work at all. and felt most mis
erable all the time. I had neither
strength nor ambition everything was
a ' drag, even my very existence. I
could neither eat, sleep nor work. Life
did not seem worth the living.
"For some time I had been noticing
the advertisements of the Cooper rem
edies in the papers, and seeing a n um
ber Aof statements from people who
claimed to have been greatly benefit
ed through their use, and whose trou
ble was very similar to my own, I
made up my mind to try once more
it could do no harm if it did no good.
So I bought a bottle of Cooper's New
Discovery and began taking it.
"I began to improve from the first
dose, and grew better rapidly. My
appetite was sharpened, my digestive
organs began to do their work proper
ly, my stomach retained the food ray,
how I could eat everything tasted
ood. I gained strength very fast. My
sleep became Testful and refreshing,
and my bowels were put into perfect
condition. I took a half dozen bottles,
and am today in better health than
I have been for years. Last summer
I picked 85 gallons of blackberries, be
sides doing my other work. My neigh
bors all remarked how well I was
looking, and I told them- it was Coop
