er, Fred Bauman. Frank Winter, John
Wagner, and other names.
SANTA FE THROUGH HERE
As Result of Floods, Trains Are Sent
Over Rock Island.
Because of washouts along the Sante
Fe tracks in Kansas and Missouri, two
of the regular passenger trains be
tween Kansas City and Chicago were
compelled to use the Rock Island
tracks today. All of the perishab!
freight on the Sante Fe is also being
transported over the Rock Island.

Afternoon arrivals at Little's grove
jettcrday swelled the attendance st
the annual Orangemen's picnic to half
he normal figure and the pleasa.it
tternoon helped make the gathering
;je of the most pleasant ever held.
rhere were no accidents or mishaps
of cny sort and the program was car-
lied out without a hitch.
J. Lester Clarke, presided over the
meeting and Dr. T. S. Petiinger of
ledo was, the principal oiator, his
subject being "William, the Silent, and
Our Debt to Him. He reviewed the
historical events that have led to the
elebration of Orangemen's day and
taid eloquent tribute to the leaders -t
Ihe cause in the long ago. Other
peakers were Rev. Thomas Hines of
Warsaw and Mayor G. W. McCaskrin
of thia city. Music was given by
stroehle's band from this city and the
iCdgingtoiv martial band.
Se a Pintle Kurounter.
The Rock Islanders who went to the
grounds by special train had a pleasant
.lay of it, missing most of the rain. At
Milan on the way out the train stopped
"ong enough to allow the passengers
o witness the closing rounds of a
ugilislic contest between two of the
village young men who were at it be
side the track when the special rolled
into the station. It was a draw. Pr
esnption was reached about 10 o'clock
On the return trip the train arrived
here about 8.
The Rock Island exposition boosters
did a most thorough job of advertising
the coming show, aided by practically
the entire delegation from this city.

Sees Mother Grow Young.
"It would be hard to overstate the
wonderful change in my mother since
she began to use Electric Bitters,"
writes Mrs. W. L. Gilpatrick of Dan-
forth, Me. "Although past 70 she
seems really to be growing young
again. She suffered untold misery
from dyspepsia for 20 years. At last
she could neither eat, drink nor
sleep. Doctors gave her up and all
remedies failed till Electric Bitters
worked such wonders for her
health." They invigorate all vital
organs, cure liver and kidney
troubles, induce sleep, impart
strength and appetite. Only 50 cents
at all druggists.

People with kidney ills want to be
cured. When one suffers the tor
tures of an aching back, relief is
eagerly sought for. There are. many
remedies today that relieve but do
not cure. Here is evidence to prove
that Doan's Kidney Pills cure, and
the cure is lasting. ' -
Mrs. C. Pfanmiller. 307 Third
street. Rock Island. III., says: "t
can recommend Doan's Kidney Puis
not only from my own experience but
from that of another member of my
family. We have both used this
remedy with the very best results.
I was never very bad off with kidney
complaint, but I sufTered consider
ably from backache. Recently I be
gan taking Doan's Kidney Pills and
a few doses removed my trouble. The
other case I spoke of was' more se
vere but Doan's Kidney Pills acted :
just as promptly andJ brought just
as great relief. ' I know that this
medicine is an effective one in cur
