COURT HOUSE RECORD
Anty Drudge's Idea of Clubs.
Organizer of Woman 9 Club "Anty, -wre want you to jom'
our club for the study of sociology, economics and
the general uplifting of -womankind."
Anty Drudge "All right, my dear. Well begin by tell
ing all women about the new way of washing clothes
with Fels-Naptha in cold or lukewarm water. It doe3
away with boiling and hard-rubbing, saves work,
time, worry and money, and does more $0 help women
than all the sociology and economics in creation."
When women first beean to wash
clothes, they soaked them in a stream and
beat them with a paddle. A bard job it
was then to get rid of dirt. r
Then someone found that fat and lye
made a substance which, mixed with hot
water and rubbed hard, cleaned things
pretty well. This was soap.
Finally, came Fels-Naptha.
Fels-Naptha isn't simply good soap;
it's different altogether from soap as you
Fels-Naptha marks as big an advance
over soap in its usual meaning, as ordinary
soap itseli did over the paddle.
Ordinary soap calls for much hard
rubinng and plenty of boiling water to take
away dirt. Some kinds of stains, greases
and blood it simply won't remove.
But Fels-Naptha cleans without hard
rubbing and you don't use hot water at all.
With Fels-Naptha all you need is cool
or lukewarm water.
Think how this cuts all the terror out

Suit for Insurance Dismissed. Four
insurance companies, made Joint de
fendants In a Bult brought by Haffner
& Co. of St. Louis, growing out of the
fire a year ago last October when tho
Leechnecht block In East Moline was
burned to the ground, are relieved of
the responsibility of settling fire losses
as result of a decision rendered Mon
day in a St. Louis court. Haffner &
Co. operated a branch clothing Btore
In East Moline in the Leechnecht
block, and their entire stock was con
sumed In the lire. Insurance carried
on this stock in the four companies
amounted to $11,000. The companies
refused to settle the claims again
them, alleging that the fire was of in
cendiary origin. Suit wpb brought
against the companies by Haffner &
Co. In the circuit cburt in St. Louis
though depositions have been taken in
East Moline and Rock Island. The
presiding Judge Monday took the case
from the Jury and dismissed the suit,
The origin of the fire has never been
definitely established, though the in
surance companies involved are firm
in their original contentions, and they
are still offering a reward for arrest
and conviction of the party or parties

Ten More Recruits Required. Cap
tain M. H. Lyon and members of Com
pany F are putting forth their best
efforts to recruit the company to the
end that the enlisted number of men
at least will meet the minimum re

pan j' is not up to standard in the mat
ter of membership by March 15 It will
be mustered out of service. Two re
cruits have Joined the company and
four or five have promised to join
when the next drill is held. At least
10 recruits are needed to bring the
ranks up to the required Btandard
Every member Is scouting and it is
thought that the ranks will be filled
The annual Inspection will be held the
latter part of thia month or early In
April, and there is no danger that
Company F will be at fault in the
matter of efficiency. After this win
ter the expense of maintaining the na
tional guards will be borne by the
government, relieving the state of a
large expense. It is predicted that
after the government takes charge of
the companies, the state will pass a
law providing pay for the members
who attend drill. If the men . are
recompensed for their services there
will be no. difficulty experienced In
maintaining a company, it Is argued.
HOSPITAL IN A TREET0P.
Medical Missionary's Plan For Curing
Consumption In Persia.
A cottage hospital for the treatment
of tuberculosis, each cottage to be
built in a treetop, was recently an
nounced as the plan of Dr. Arthur
Funk, a medical missionary of the
Presbyteriau church, for eradicating
the disease in Persia. Dr. Funk ob
tained his idea from D. O. Steinberger,
a resident of Urbana, O., whose home
is in the branches of a giaut oak.
When tbe Steinberger home was con
structed its owner was a victim of
pulmonary trouble. He now claims to
be fully recovered and asserts that
his life eighty feet above ground Is
responsible for his good health.
Dr. Funk and his wife are stationed
at Hamadau, a city of 8,000 popula
tion, about 2j0 milrs west of Teheran
They are confident that the treetop
plan will materially reduce the number
of tubercular cases in their district.

In a diseass so painful as Rheumatism, medicines containing opiates
and nerve-quieting drugs are often used. Such treatment is dangerous sot
only because it frequently causes tbe sufferer to become addicted to tbe
drug habit, but medicines of thir nature are always injurious to ths system.
Rheumatism Is a disease of the blood, and Its cure depends entirely upon a
thorough purification of the -circulation. As losg as the- blood remains
saturated with uric acid, an inflammatory condition of the nervea, muscles
and tendons of the body will exist, and the pains, aches, soreness, and bot,
feverish flesh of Rheumatism will continue. The one saf and sure cure for
Rheumatism Is 8. S. S. It is nature' remedy for this diaease, mads entirely
of the healing, cleansing juices and extracts of roots, herbs and barks from
the natural forests. S. S. S. does not contain anything that is In the slightest
way Injurious to the system. It is absolutely and purely vegetable, and
free from opiates or sedatives of any kind. S. S. 8. cures Rheumatism by
removing the urio acid from the circulation, it makes the blood pure, rich
.nd heaalthy so that instead of depositing harp, uratic impurit'.aa Into the
iftuscles, nerves, joints and bones, it nourishes wry portion of tbe body
with natural, healthful properties. Book on Rheumatism and any medical
advice free to all who write and request It.
