the house by ornamentation, no ex

City Well Decorated. Davenpor
has put on its best holiday dress for
the firemen of Iowa and the members
of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. In
some particulars the decoration this
time is remarkable. No general dec
orating was done by the city or the
orders meeting here, everything being
left to the patriotism and hospitality
of the people of Davenport. And yet
Davenport never put up a more fes
tive appearance. The city is one blaze
of color. Business men are vieing
each other in putting their stores into
gala array. American flags, tricolor
bunting and little special welcome ban
ners for both firemen and Eagles are
everywhere in evidence. That busi
ness man is scarce who has not done
something in the way of decorating.

Want Street Numbers Changed.
Property, owners living along Four
teenth-and-a half street and Four
teenth streets have petitioned the
council : to change the number rl
streets in" South Moiine so that it
would not be so confusing. The pres
ent situation is due to the annexation
of territory and the plan of the origi
nal town does not fit into the present
plat of . the city. As is known, th
street south of Central park
and . which runs direct south
from Fifteenth street is known as
Fourteenth-and-a-half street to Twenty
third avenue and from there is known
as Fourteenth street. The plan of the
property owners is to name this Fif
teenth street as far south as Thirty
fourth avenue. At present Fifteenth
Is continued from Central nark on s
tangent and, beyond that is an ex
tension: of Sixteenth street and the
idea of the petitioners is to" call thh
Sixteenth street on which the. car
line runs to Thirty-fourth avenue. Tin
matter was referred to the committee
of the whole for action.
New Idea jn Sight Seeing. "Seeini
the three cities by trolley," is the Ial
est innovation for pleasure seekers .
Moiine and .vicinity. The idea irist'
nated with Rev. R. S. Haney and th.
first excursion Is to be run Frida;
morning. Two observation cars wiM.
a seating capacity of 150, will leavi'
the interurban waiting station at 9
a. ni., bound for S II vis. Those who
are urged to carry baskets filled with
lunch, for the cars will return to this
city and proceed to Fejervary park,
Davenport, where dinner will be en
joyed. Central park will be the next
stop of Interest, nd then the cars pro
ceed to the Watch Tower. The fin tl
stop will, be at Long View park, and
it is planned to reach home between C
and 7 o'clock. Mr. Haney will be
aboard and deliver a lecture on points
of Interest as they are passed, pointing
out interesting things, perhaps, that
people have never noticed. This trip
will be au experiment, and if enough
interest is shown, other trips will i.e

Perfect health depends upon the
perfect condition of the different
organs of the body, but of all these
organs none is called upon to per
foim as important a task as the
Kidneys. They are required to do
the great work of acting as filters
for the blood. That is why so many
serious ailments result from im
paired condition of the Kidneys.
As . an example of how serious
weakened or diseased Kidneys
may result, statistics show that
during the year of 1908 in the state
of New York alone more than
10,000 deaths were the result of
Bright': Disease. Bright's Disease
iscaused by diseased Kidneys.
Starts from Weak and Disused Kidneys
- Every drop of blood which flows through your body is filtered
by the kidneys every three minutes. You take into your body
poisons from certain food you eat which, if not filtered and passed
off as urine by the kidneys, circulates all through your body;
- thereby resulting in Rheumatism, etc. This poison is known as
Uric Acid and, although dangerous, can be readily stopped by the
prompt use of De Witt's Kidney & Bladder Pills. These pills first
act on the liver," then clean the kidneys, relieving and curing Back
ache and all Kidney Troubles. Stops Uric Acid poison by en
abling it to pa off with the waste matter as urine. The antiseptic
properties of these pills heals and soothes any irritation in the
bladder which is affected in 70 of all Kidney Diseases.
DeWitt'i Kidney Pills art the only kidney preparation that
' gives prompt and permanent relief. . One dose will convince yon
of the power of this wonderful new remedy. Try it to-day and
