Recover Her "Diamonds." Whether
Mrs. Shackelton of Chicago thought
her lost grip would not be found and
therefore she could make the railroad
company settle for any claim she might
render or whether merely through ig
norance she called glass settings in
cheap jewelry diamonds, the railroad
officials and Davenport police are not
iu a position to state. Mrs. Shackel
ton had been to Wyoming, Iowa, and
was on her way home, when a suit
case which she had checked as bag
gage was stolen from a truck at the
Perry street depot of the Milwaukee
and Burlington roads in this city. This
occurred on the night of Aug. 25. Mrs.
Shackelton reported her loss to the
.railroad company, and upon their re
quest furnished them with an itemized
statement of the contents of the grip.
This was mostly wearing apparel, and
In the list of articles the woman nam
ed several pieces of diamond-set jew
elry. The grip, which was recovered
by the Davenport police at a Second
street boarding house, was searched
and the contents inspected by .Commer
cial Agents Hinrichs of the Milwaukee
road and Hutchens of the Burlington
road. They found all the wearing ap
parel, but no diamonds. They did find,
however, some cheap jewelry set with
rhinestones, and without doubt these
are what the woman called diamonds.

Medicines containing Mercury are often given to persons suffering with
Contagious Blood Poison, and so powerful is the action of this drug that it
frequently removes the symptoms in a short while, and shuts the disease
up in the system to do greater damage to the delicate internal members.
When, however, the treatment is left off, the disease always returns, and the
patient finds that his health has been injured by this powerful mineral, and
he is often left with weak stomach, disturbed digestion, mercurial rheuma
tism, etc. .The action of S. S. S. i3 entirely different. It contains no
Mercury, nor any other harmful drug, but is made entirely of healing,'
cleansing roots and herbs. It cures Contagious Blood Poison by removing
the virus from the blood. It searches out every particle of the poison
and does not leave the least trace for future outbreaks. S. S. S., in
addition to curing the disease, builds up and strengthens every part of the
body. Its fine tonic effects tone up the stomach and digestion, improve the
appetite and regulate the entire system. Home treatment book containing

Wanted Long Term. Fred Silfer-

Ridge, walked into the police station
Wednesday afternoon and asked to be
locked up so that he might get sober
ed.. He was considerably under the in
fluence of liquor and looked as if he
needed to be kept' away from it for
a while. In the morning he asked the
police magistrate to send him to the
county jail, and he was given 10 days.
With a sort of a haunted look in his
eyes he pleaded with the magistrate
to extend , the time. When informed
that it would not be done, the old man
said: "Well, it's the only way I will
ever get sobered up." As he still had
some money, and fearing' that he might
continue on his spree, the police mag
istrate increased the sentence to 20

ever, was a very tempting one, offer

pervaded bis body, and his mind r.vir.

were-very indistinct when the effect of

Humphry Davy that the gas might
be useful iu promoting poetic inspira

verse while under its influence, but the
recorded result hardly shows a close
connection between the divine afflatus
and nitrous oxide. Davy's experi

highly .fashionable, so that in 18o2 a
French writer alludes to it as having

THE LOAN BUSINESS
Has been undergoing a radical change in the last few
Now instead of the old t ime methods, whereby the bor
rower got into debt, was charged heavy interebt, and never
got his account settled we have put some new ideas into
it. There is no reason why the loan business cannot be as
fairly conducted as any other businecs. And we are doing
it. We charge a reasonable amount for the monoy, and
then divide ihe total into easy weekly or monthly pay-.
ments, and every payment made applies on the principle.
We loan almost anywhere within 40 miles of Davenport
on Furniture, Pianos, Teams, etc., without removal.
Loans with other companies paid off, and more money
advanced, with smaller payment. 72c is the weekly pay
ment on a f 30 loan.
