board of supervisors of Scott county
has made a number of appointments
for the ensuing year, practically all of
them being reappointments of th
present Incumbents of the positions
for which they were named. For the
year commencing June 1, 1910, the fol
lowing were appointed: County phy
sician, Ir. E. O. Flcke, at the same
salary as heretofore; overseer of the
poor, city of Davenport township,

was appointed the attorney to repre
sent the county on behalf of drainage
district No. 3, in the suit brought in

Sell Washing Machine Department,
A deal has been closed whereby the
M'ahle Foundry & Machine company
sells to the Davenport Wastitng Ma
chine company its washing machine
department. The Wahle company will
continue, however, Its foundry and ma
chine business. The Davenport Wash
ing Machine company has contracted
with the H. F. Brammer Manufacturing
company to make Its machines. The
company will maintain an office at
Front and Gaines streets, and Herman
H. Wahle w ill be the manager.
Population About 45,000. The popu
lation of Davenport will not be over
the 45,000 mark, according to Jeppe
Bierring, in charge of tho enumerators
in this city. The complete returns
are not in yet but Mr. Bierring does,
not believe the population will be over
the numbes just given. About 12 of i
the 23 canvassers busy In the city of
Davenport have handed in complete
accounts of their district. The other
enumerators will hand in their results
within a day or two. Most of the
enumerators have completed their ac
counts with the exception of a few
names to be looked up. This number
of 45,000, while not coming up to tho
over sanguine expectations of some,
Is an increase of 25 per cent over 1000,
when the number of residents was
3G,000 and some odd numbers. ' Mr.
Bierring utates that this increase is
about what was to be expected. In
1905 he took the state census In his
capacity of assessor and at that time
the population was 203 short of the
40,000 mark. For the following two
years the city he believes stood at
about a standstill and it is within only
the last three years that' the city has
advanced appreciably in; population.

They Grow Hair
Certain Ingredients if Properly
Combined, Stimulate . Hu
man Hair Growth.
Resorcln is one of the most ef
fective germ destroyers ever discov
ered. Beta-naphthol is a most pow
erful, yet absolutely safe germicide
and antiseptic, which prevents devel
opment of germ matter, and creates
a clean, healthy condition.
Pilocarpine, although not a col
oring matter or dye, is an ingredient
well established for its power to re
store natural color to human hair.
Borax, because of Its well-defined
softening and cleasing properties, tls
most useful In the treatment of scalp
and hair diseases. Glycerine acts
as a stimulant to the hair bulbs, and
has a soothing, healing and nourish
ing Influence. Alcohol Is indispen
sable In medicine because of its an
tiseptic, stimulating and preservative
qualities. - .
Rexall "9$" Hair Tonic is chiefly
composed of these ingredients, which
are compounded in a peculiar form,
and we believe it is the most effective
remedy known to medical science for
sialp and hair troubles generally.
We personally guarantee it to eradi
cate dandruff and scalp irritations
and to grow hair, even though the
scalp in spots is bare of hair, pro
viding if course there is life and vi
tality remaining in the hair roots.
We want everyone troubled with
scalp disease,' dandruff or loss of
hair to try Rexall "93" Hair Tonic.
If it does not remove dandruff and
promote a growth of hair to the
satisfaction of the user, we will with
out question or quibble return every
cent paid us for it. This guarantee
Is printed on every package. It has
effected most satisfactory results in
93 out of 100 cases where put to
a practical test. -
Rexall -93" Hair Tonic is entirely
unlike and in every particular dif
ferent from anything else we know
of for the purpose for which it is
recommended. We urge you lo try
it at our entire risk. Certainly
we could offer no better guarantee.

S. S. S. is the greatest of all blood

Not only does S. S. S. cure cure Conta

even where the trouble has been inherited. S. S. S. is made entirely of roots,
