Says Census Count is Thorough.
C. F. Grantz, secretary of the Civic
commission of-the Moline club, says:
"I think that the present census will
be the most thorough one ever taken
In Moline. I have been here for 60
years and have seen five censuses
taken. Never before have the methods
of the government been so thorough
as this year. Despite, this fact, how
ever, I think there are hundreds of
people in Moline who will not be
counted. Why? Because in many
cases names are refused. The enum
erator knows the people are there but
cannot record them when not even
the name is obtainable. Then there
are some whom the enumerator does
not locate. This is not necessarily the
fault of the enumerator, either."
Burglar in Residence. This burglar
wanted money, nothing else. The
family of John Johnson, carpenter, liv
ing1 on Forty-third sfreet and the in
terurban line, heard a noise at 1 o'clock
in the morning. But as it was not
soon repeated no investigation was
made. Mr. Johnson made a trip out
on the lawn before he donned his
trousers. There had been a night
visitant, who had carried the trousers
out of the house, shaken out a pocket
book, removed the small change tuere
In 'and then- carefully replaced the
book 1a the trousers pocket. Along
side Mr. Johnson's bifurcates was also
found the mpty purse of hjs daughter
Edith. It had contained a little change
when "Miss Edith retired, leaving her
purse down stairs. It is believed the
burglar had had no trouble in entering
the .house. Miss Edith does not recol
lect having locked the door when she
returned home after the other mem
bers of the family had retired. Mr.
Burglar might have made quite a
clearance had he" wanted anything
other than money. Mr. Johnson thinks
it is remarkable, considering the small
amount of cash that was found," that
the burglar didn't clear almost every
thing else out for revenge.
To Remain In Moline. Robert Lea
departed for Quincy to take charge of

He will continue in charge of the ele

Any system that needs a tonic needs also a blood puri
fier, for it is the weakened, impure condition of thecircu-
lauon that is responsible for the run-down state of health.
The supreme office and duty .of the blood is to fur
nish nourishment to every portion 'of the body. The cir
culatory system, magnificent and wonderful in its con
struction, supplies the means for the distribution of sys
temic nutriment to every muscle, nerve, bone, eland, sin
ew and tissue of the body; and just as Ion; as the blood
remains pure and rich each of these members are healthy,
strong and normal. '
We have only to recosmize the importance of pure
blood in preserving health, to realize the danger of a
weakened circulation. The use of a proper tonic when
the system is depleted and run-down, will often prevent
the develornnftit of Rnm srrinn airVnes. because weak
systems cannot resist disease, while healthy systems are able to ward it off.
Deficient blood nutriment is usually manifested in a general bodily
weakness, a tired, worn-out feeling-, fickle appetite, rr digestion, etc.
Sleep does not sufficiently refresh the body, and the languid feeling fre
quently makes the ordinary duties of life burdensome.
