thing of a Marker.
The kind of May we may have but
are not guaranteed by the weather
department, weekly long distance fore
casts to the contrary notwithstanding,
is shown in the averages for the, last
3P years as prepared by Observer
Sherier. The normal temperature has
been' 61. The warmest .month", that
of 1881, had an average of C8 and the
coldest, that of 1882, an average tl 54.
The highest temperature was 90 on
the 9th, 1887, and the lowest was 29
on the 4th, 1907. The date cn which
the last killing frost in the spring
has occurred was May 22. On thi
average , there has been 4.24 inches
of precipitation, there being an aver
age of 12 days with .01 inches or
more. The greatest monthly precipi
tation was 9.23 inches in 1888 and
the least was 1.31 in 1881. On the
18th, 1876, there was a rainfall of, 2.79
inches, which was the heaviest in any
24 hours. Snow has fallen but once
in the month and that was on the
3d, last year. On. an average there,
have been 9 clear days, 12 partly,

FOUNDRY MEN TQ MEET
New Tri-City Association to Have Ses

"JJhe; Trinity Associated Foundry
Foremen bf Davenport, Rock Island
and Moling will hold their April meet
ing; which;' was postponed from April
27,. 1908, at the Harper house, Monday
evening. May ,4, at 8 o'clock: This
association Is a branch of the national
organization, and was formed March
2fc with 13 charter members. Its ob
ject is solely the education of its
members : in the ; foundry business.
Any persen interested is welcomed at
the meetings. The new association
has been given enthusiastic support
by the local owners and . managers
and will undoubtedly perform a great
service to the business generally.
"jposed vegetation and fruit buds
susceptible to a moderate freeze got
it last, nignr, . and considerable dam
age is the result, according to the
best authorities. Clear skies and lack
of wind rendered conditions ideal for
the frost to do its worst and the tem
perature went down to 31 degrees..
There is some consolation, however,
in the fact that a week of cold weath
er had somewhat acclimated growing
things and the injury will probably
be less severe than had the freeze
been - sudden. On the other hand
there ' is cause for further alarm in
the north wind which today prevented
inuch of a rise in temperature and
caused , another frost to . be predicted
for tonight, ,
Garden truck suffered- very little.
Tomatoes that have, been set out and
were, not covered were killed, as were
beans that were through the ground.
Potatoes where up, were frozen down
to the surface, but will come up again.
Of the other plants that are growing
at this time of year nearly all will
stand a considerable freeze.
Half Cbrrrlea Killed.
The public is more interested in
fruit, which, according to Samuel Lor-
ton of Davenport, formerly one of the
proprietors of the Nichols & Lorton
nursery ana now; owner or a largo
fruit farm, has not escaped unscathed.
though it is impossible to accurately
estimate the damage now. - Cherries,
Mr. Lorton believes, will be but halt
a crop. Fears are injured but not sc
verely. Peaches have come through
best of all and are hurt little if any
on the nigher ground. Plums and
apples will suffer. Small fruit has
escaped because not sufficiently pro
gressed to feel the effects.

Can eczema be cured? -Some
physicians say "Yes."

The real question-is, "What is meant
by eczema?' If you mean those scaly
eruptions, those diseases which make
their first appearance not at birth, but
years afterward, and perhaps not until
middle age then there can no longer
be any "question that these forms of
eszema are curable.

mixed with other vegetable ingredi
ents, will kill the germs that infest
the skin. Apply this prescription tb
the skin, and .instantly ,that awful jitch
is, gone., rne very moment.tne liquid

itch disappears, and "continued appli
