TREES ARE HARDEST HIT
Early Apples Killed, bat in Many
Sections Later Varieties Hare
Fruit crops in Illinois have ot
been entirely ruined by the recent
freeze, although production of tree
fruits will be considerably curtailed.
The Prairie Farmer, published in
Chicago, has Just concluded a can

Btate and the summary made from
the reports of 200 correspondents
Indicate that early estimates of dam
age to the fruit crop were greatly
Conservative fruit growers who
have made a careful investigation of
. the situation are by no means con
vinced that the Illinois crop is en
tirely lost. Senator H. M. Dunlap,
who has charge of extensive orchard
plantations in central and southern
Illinois, believes the chances are rea
sonable for a fair crop of apples in
Cherries and Peaches Damaged.
Cherries, peaches and plums have
been badly damaged as well as early
v blossoming varieties of apples. The
consensus of opinion seems to be
that orchard owners will harvest a
reasonably good crop and especially
those owning orchards in which con
siderable numbers of later varieties
of apples predominate.
A typical report i given by W. S
Perrine, one of the large orchard
owners in Marion county.
"Our early apples are all destroy
ed," he says, "but it is too early to
determine what the winter varieties
are going to do. We hope that there
will be enough left to make a fair
Strawberries seem to have with

to the mulch that protected the ber
ries from the frost. In some cases
the snow itself made a mulch, re

Will Have Strawberries.
A nurseryman living near Rock
. Island says he will have the biggest
crop of strawberries in years and
that he expects a half or one-third of
a crop of rapsberries and a full crop
of blackberries. He has no apples,
plums, pears or cherries and only
an occasional peach, but his grapes
are not dead and there may be a par.

world as 'though the car had run over

car came close to fainting at the
thought. It was soon learned, how
ever, that the scene was caused by the
ejection of a drunken man from the
car. The crowd of men came from the
Rock Island arsenal work cars which
were following the regular car. The
drunken man had boarded the car in
Moline and became abusive and used
bad language which the conductor
stood as long as he could and then
ordered the offender off. The drunk's

Report of the Canvass in Tri-City
Churches Effort to Increase
At the trl-city rally of laymen, held
yesterday afternoon at Broadway Pres

Medicine Free in Every Case
Where It Fails to Relieve.
Neglect or pessimism, we believe,
is the greatest enemy the public has
to contend with when applied to the
loss or recovery of health. Prac
tically every case of consumption
might have been cured if hope had
been maintained and proper treat
ment had been resorted to at the
first symptom of the disease. Until
the advanced stage is reached con
sumption is curable. Catarrh is re
sponsible, we believe, for many
cases of consumption. ' It 'is about
catarrh we want to talk .to you to
day, incidentally consumption, since
the, two are so closely allied.
We have a medicine made from a
prescription of one of the most suc
cessful catarrh specialists known
We believe it is positively without
an equal. We are so satisfied that
we are right, that we will supply the
medicine free In every Instance
where it is used according to direc
tions for a reasonable length of
time, should it fall to give satisfac
tion in every particular. We want
everyone to try this medicine at our
risk. There are no conditions at
tached to our offer. We put the
user under no obligation to us what
ever. The medicine we want you to try
is Rexall Mucu-Tone. It is a ca
tarrh remedy that goes direct to the
seat of trouble. It is carried by the
blood to every part of the system.
It purifies and enriches the blood,
tones up the mucous cells, and brings
about a condition of health and
strength that tends to prevent the
germs of consumption from getting
a start. 'Besides this, Rexall Mucu
Tone is a wonderful appetizer, digest
ive aid and flesh builder. Its good
effects are often felt from the very
first dose. It is one of the largest
and most satisfactory selling medi
cines that we have ever had anything
to do with.
We know so much of the great
good that it has done that we per
sonal back it up with our reputa
tion and money, which fact should
be ample guarantee to satisfy k any
body. Rexall Mucu-Tone comes in
two sizes, 50 cents and $1.00. We
urge you to try it. Remember you

FREE TREATMENT UNTIL CURED
On account of the great rush of patients and the numerous
special requests received, asking for an extension of the free
treatment offer, due to the fact that they have only recently
begun to realize the marvelous results to be obtained from
the use of electricity when properly applied, and being desir
ous of adding at least 4 5 more new testimonials to his list of
cured, Dr. Bartz has concluded to extend his free treatment
offer to everybody calling for 30 tlays longer.

PLANTS AND THE
Geraniums will grow In any soli, but
must have only a moderate amount of
manure and not too much water. Pan
sies like the richest kind of a light,
loamy soil. Most shrubs like a mod
erately rich soil with yearly applica
tions of manure on the surface over
the roots. Cannas like the richest
possible kind of soil with abundance
of water after they start to grow.
Many plants will not do well two
years in succession in the same place,
but w-e do not know exactly why. This
is especially true of sweet peas and
asters. It is more or less true of all
plants. This is why the farmer "ro
tates" his crops and why he should
never, if we can avoid it, plant the
same variety In the same place oftener
than once in three years.
Every old sore is an infected spot on the flesh, kept
open by constant drainage of impure blood into the place.
One of the principal constituents of blood is plasma,
a healing property. Where the circulation is pure this
element of the blood, which is of a glutinous or sticky
nature, performs the necessary work in healing all sores,
wounds and lacerations. It does this by sticking or
joining the parts together, while nature causes a knitting
of the tissues and solidifies the place.
This healing property is frequently destroj-ed by
impure accumulations in the blood, and this vital fluid
not only loses its power to heal, but becomes a source of
irritation and disease to any open sore or ulcer on the
body. Constantly it discharges its morbid matters into
the rlace. and srraduallv it causes the infection to
spread, and the sore enlarges. The morbid matter in the blood comes
from different causes. A long spell of debilitating sicknesj, which breeds
disease germs in the system, the retention of the refuse matters of the bod
