' Policeman Keeps Up Fight. Police
Officer Henry Behm, who was recent
ly suspended from the force for 30
days without pay for criticising Chief
Atkinson on his failure to receive cir
cus tickets, is in a fighting mood and
has carried the matter into the dis
trict court. Yesterday through Attor-
ney s. A. Finger a writ of certiorari
was issued, commanding the members
of the fire and police board, Henry
Jager, Alexander Anderson and Frank
Balluff to appear in court on Oct. 12
and bring with them a full transcript
of the records and proceedings, as
well as all facts in the case, in order
that they may fie reviewed by the
court. Mr. Behm claims the order of
the fire and police commissioners caus
ing his suspension from the force was
irregular, illegal and that in issuing
such an order the commissioners ex
ceeded their authority.
Police Close Show. The carnival
show billed as "The Oriental Girls,"
it was announced at police headquar
ters yesterday afternoon, had been ci
dered closed owing to its immoral
character. The first night of the car
nival the members of the department
on duty at the grounds warned the
management that there would have to
be a toning down, if it was expected
that the show would be allowed to
continue. But it appears that little
heed was given to the order of the
police authorities and the 11 o'clock
performance for "men only" was ad
vertised and given. The oriental en
tertainment, in the early part of the
evening, would pass muster, but as the
night grew later the dancers would lie
instructed to go nearer the limit, un
til the news was spread about the
grounds that there would be a treat
for the men folks at 11 o'clock. This
of course drew the banner crowd of
New Riding Machine. It's not an

of the machine, which promise to rival
those of the aeroplane in affording ex

Alday, whose home is at 523 Mound
street, is the genius responsible for
the new machine. He has spent sev
eral months in working out his ideas.
The East Davenport Machine works
turned out the model under the direc

has had it out at the mile track tha
past two afternoons putting it through
its trial performances. Mr. Alday Is
optimistic as to the success of his in

it will replace the motorcycle, over

Hundreds of lady scalp specialists and hair dressers use and recommend Newbro's Herpicide. instead
of products of their own manufacture upon which a much larger profit could be made.' They claim that
Herpicide makes friends for them and gives much better satisfaction. Some hair dressers use Herpicide
for obstinate cases only, but why not use the best first? -
Herpicide is a delightful dressing that can be used when there isno disease of the hair or scalp, and
as an actual remedy for dandruff, itching scalp apd falling hair it stands in a class singularly Us own.

is a woman sick unto death in the car.
I at once got up and went out, found
her very ill with cramp colic; her
hands and arms were drawn up so you
could not straighten them, and with a
deathlike look on her face. Two or
three ladies were working with her
and giving her whisky. I went to my
suit case and got my bottle of Cham

Remedy (I never travel without it),
ran to the water tank, put a double
dose of the medicine in the glass,
poured some water into it and stirred
it with a pencil; then I had quite a
time to get the ladies to let mo give it
to her, but I succeeded. I could at
once see the effect, and I worked with
her, rubbing her hands, and in 20 min
utes I gave her another dose. By this
time we were almost into Le Grande,
where I was to leave the train. I gave
