The first consignment of the 10
new cars of the 250 series, to be
apportioned among the lines on both
sides of the river, has arrived, after
J. G. Hnntoon, general manager of
the Tri-City Railway company, had
occupied several weeks in an effort
to locate them after they had been
shipped from the factory where they
were built in Cincinnati.
The new cars are of the single
truck variety and will harmonize In
every particular with those of the
series they are to form a part of.
The cars will be placed on the Long

side, and on the hill lines In Dav

it is supposed, by the Tri-City sys

Bridge line turns out as it Is con

When the pay-as-you-enters arrive
the cars now in use on the Bridge
circuit will be sent to the shops and
redecorated to match with the cars

RED CROSS SENDS ON
RECEIPTS FOR FUNDS
Individual Acknowledgment to All
Who Donated Through The
The Argus today received from the
treasurer of the Red Cross society in
dividual receipts for the various sums
contributed by local people towards
the Cherry fund. The Argus in turn
is forwarding these acknowledgments
to those who made their contributions
through this paper.
Miss Dina Ramser, secretary of the
Reek Island Associated Charities, re
cently wrote to S. C. Kingsley, general
superintendent of the United Charities
of Chicago for information as to the
condition and needs of the families
who ered by the Cherry mine hor-
ror. In his reply. Mr. Kincslev savs
"The immediate needs are well pro
vided for both in food and clothing. A
great abundance of the latter has now
boeu t-t nt in, and I think everybody is
or can be provided for from the stock
on hand. These families will be left
quite helpless, and the plan "is to ap
portion this money according to tho
nreds aul to pay it out in monthly and
semi-mor.thly payments. In some cases
this will need to run over quite a long
period of time because there are large
families of small children."

There is more catarrh In this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few

For a great many years doctors pro
nounced It a local disease and pre
scribod local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Sci
ence has proven catarrh to be a consti
tutional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
