were:in the city Saturday looking for
a quartet or so of men who went to

couple of the company's best work

namite explosion that blew up a lot

ture. But the company feels that it

Hans Ericks has filed an answer to
the sensational suit started by Henry
Warnke, in which the latter charged

tion of Warnke, further states that

Build Engine at High School. A
far-reaching zest has been given to
the work of the manual training de
partment of the high school as a re
sult of the installation of iron lathes.
The fascination for machinery which
will generate power has Inspired the
boys to some remarkable achieve
ments and has materially increased
the scope of the department The
lathes have given added force to the
practical value of the department and
have suggested anew the advisability
of removal of the entire department
to the Washington building next fall
where the opportunity for extending
the usefulness of this training maye
afforded. A steam engine completed
last week and put under Its own power
is one of the Individual triumphs done
outside of school hours that is attract
ing attention. The engine was built
by Roy McElvain, who made his own
patterns for it and then had the cast
Ings made In one of the- local foun
dries. Every other detail was done
by the boy, and he now has a practical
little one horse power engine.

Davenport Groans -Under Mulct Law
The Iowa mulct law, which is the
offshoot of the prohibition movement.
and which was enacted after prohibi
tion, was proven a glaring failure in
the Hawkeye state, is, according to
the Democrat, proving of so damaging
tffect to the mercantile interests of
Davenport that it has developed" a po
litical issue in that city. It has served
as a means of holdup to the grafter,
and while it has its good points and
does not. workithe farce that absolute
prohibition does, it is nevertheless
killing the town. Neal, who fattened
out of its operations nd then ducked
town, is the same man who was in
dicted here for alleged attempted ex
tortion of ; the Rock Island Brewing
company. The Democrat, in the course
of an extended review of the situation
in Davenport, says: ,
"Never before have the iniquities of
the undemocratic mulct law been so
glaringly manifest in any city as they
are shown to be in Davenport today.
That the radical enforcement
of this obnoxious law is paralyzing
business in Davenport, is a sentiment
that is endorsed by fully nine out of
every 10 merchants who have the best
interests of the city at heart. It has
thrown hundreds of our industrious
residents out of employment, short
ened ,fhe working hours of others, and
in innumerable instances has resulted
in a reduction of wages.
"Attorney C. W. Neal, under the
Evidently this increased taxation will
have no terrors for the members of
the Civic Federation, for, as far as
known, there is not a taxpayer upon
its list of members."
Kinetic is a good word. ; It
' means "powerto make things

shameful disguise of reform and an
abnormal thirst for gold, recently
mulcted the Scott county saloonkeep
ers 'out of over $C,000 and left. The
shame of the 'mulct law lies in. the
premium it offers unscrupulous attor
neys who take advantage of it from
selfish motives. Attorney Neal would
never have started a saloon injunction
case in Davenport but for the ill-gotten
wealth he hoped , to secure there
by. Saloon ,prosecutors have ,from
tiide to time denounced the liquor in
terest, but never once, during all the
saloon prosecutions in Davenport, have
they refused to take the saloonkeep
er's, money when the cases were final
ly adjusted in court. Never once have
they been heard to remark 'Your mon
ey is tainted, I'll have none of it.' No,
indeed! But on the other hand they
have persistently followed this form
of co-called prosecution until it is no
longer known by this name, but is
now styled persecution.
"Past events show that when one
prosecutor drops out, there is always
another ready to grab for the $25 bait
offered by the law. It's no wonder
therefore, when the mulct law is tak
en advantage of for such purposes,
that it is condemned in the severest
terms by the leading citizens and busi
ness interests of Davenport.
. "Today there is scarcely a business
interest in Davenport that does not
feel the ill effect of the mulct law.
Real estate is Inactive, building oper
ations are at a standstill and many
industrious workers are being thrown
outof employment. In the cigar man
ufacturing line alone it is estimated
that fully 350 operators have been'
thrown out of employment. One of
our leading manufacturers, P. N. Ja
cobscn, Jr., has found it necessary to
dismiss 80 of his employes who here
tofore have had steady work the year
round. Not only the large department
stores but . the small merchants as
well, complain. of decreased revenue.
Xhe depression Is felt in barber shops,
restaurants, cigar' stores, meat mar
kets, furniture houses and almost ev
ery class of retail trade. . . v
. "The" foisting of this small town
mulct measure upon a city the size
of , Davenport, will mean an enormous
decrease in revenues of the city and
county, and this decrease will neces
sarily result in: increased taxation.
When the . next city and county taxes
fall due, the taxpayer will then real-,
ize that he will be called upon to con
tribute his share of this deficiency.

TUT BLOOD UHHEALTHY
M SYSTEM DEMIIGED
The entire inner portion of the body is covered with mucous membrane ;
Mi?o iotn1ratiMia ttecno ia aVirmrlantlxr cnnnlivl with hlrwul vessels, veins.
arteries, and capillaries. Each of these is constantly supplying to this tissue
or lining1, blood to nourish and strengthen it and keep the system healthy.
When the blood becomes infected with catarrhal matter it is not able to fur
nish the required amount of healthful properties, but feeds the parts with
impurities which disease the membranes and tissues so that they become
irritated and inflamed, and Catarrh, with all its disagreeable and dangerous
symptoms, is established in the system. There is a constant ringing in the
ears, a thin, watery discharge from the nostrils, the breath has an offensive
odor, slight fever often accompanies the disease, and gradually the entire
health becomes affected and the system upset and deranged. In its earliex
stages,' when Catarrh is confined to the nose and throat, sprays, washes,
inhalations, etc., are soothing and in a way beneficial, because they are
cleanly and usually antiseptic, but such treatment has no curative effect,
because it does not reach the blood. To cure Catarrh the blood must be pur
- , - ' iQed. and this is just what S. S. S does. It
goes down into the circulation and attacks
the disease at its foundation ; it removes the
cause and makes the blood pure and healthy.
Then the oiooa vessels are xuiea witn iresu, .
reinvigorated blood, which is carried to all
the mucous surfaces and linings, the inflam
mation and irritation are corrected, the symp
toms all disappear, the health is improved and Catarrh is permanently cured.
