It says that there has not been an in- j
dictment returned in Rock Island j
county befAre that has aroused the
sympathy that has attended the one j
involving Robert Rexdale as a. result '
of the grand jury's recent thorough in- j
vestigation of the affairs of the Fra- j
ternal Tribunes. Rexdale, genial j
poet, and man jmong men, at a'l times,
was for years connected with the Fra- j
ternal Tribunes in responsible capaci-1
ties, and his errors were those of judg
ment, mispiaced confidence and lack of
knowledge of the affairs of the world,
rather than criminal intent, his friends
confidently believe. No better evidence !
of the fact that his heart was in the
right place could have been presented
than his own determination, from the i
moment the revelation came that the
order's funds had been misnppropria- j
ted, that the affairs bo sifted to tho !
bottom, notwithstanding that he re- j
alized that his own good name would j
very likely be assailed. He was one !
of those who insisted upon the grand
jury inquiry both at the January term ;
of the Rock Island circuit court and at j
the May term, when the searching in
vestigation was made. j
While Rexdale may have erred ser-
lously, at the time of the merger, in 1
allowing any of the bonus money, sup- i
posedly furnished by the Home Circle, !
to be credited to his account, it is be-;
lieved he did so innocently. lie was
the first to return to the order all that j
had been deposited in his favor when
he found the funds had come out of i
the Fraternal Tribunes reserve fund ;
instead of from the Home Circle ofii- !
cials, and thereafter no one sought
more earnestly to have every phase of j
the transaction bnred than Rexdale. j
He frankly told his friends his own '
part in the proceedings, informed the
grand Jury of every phase of it, and did '
not hesitate to tell the public all that !
he knew, without effort to shield him-,
A hale fellow well met, a lover of
his fellow men, a man of uniform cour
tesy and goad will, the sorrow 13 ob Rex
dale has carried since the first dis
closures of the rascality practiced in
the merger proceedings, long before
the public had a suspicion of it, has
been known only to himself. His great
est mistake has been over-conlidence
in those about him, rather than a dis
position to do wrong. It has been a
shortcoming with Bob Rexdale instead
of a sin. No one who knows him would
tolerate the suggestion of a dishonora
ble deed on his part.
Bob Rexdale guilty of a criminal
act? The thought is impossible!
Can Now Drink Water.
Not long ago every body was warned
against drinking water at meals. The
physicians were almost unanimous in
declaring that it was the worst treat
ment one could give his stomach. San
itary institutions said no water should
be taken except a half hour before or
after meals. And now that edict has
been found incorrect and another
Illustration is furnished that medical
science is not infallible.
Medical investigators have reached
the conclusion that instead of being
harmful to drink quantities of water
with meals, it is distinctly beneficial.
Recent experiments along this line are
described In the New York Medical
Journal. The writersays:
"Not long ago it was almost the rule
for physicians to discourage the habit
of drinking water except in minimum
amounts with meals, on the ground
that the gastric juice was thereby di
luted and that digestion was impaired
and delayed. This opinion is still held
by many physicians, and is the pet
hobby of a great many diet cranks and
cranks professional and amateur.
"On the other hand, there have been
many who believed that an appetite as
widely distributed as the desire to
drink at the time of eating, an appetite
seeu in so many animals as well as in
man, was a perfectly safe guide to
trust, and that it was obviously a pro
vision of nature to supply water which
was needed at this time.
"Recent experimental evidence seems
to confirm the latter view. The work
of Foster and Lambert has shown that
water is a distinct stimulant to the
gastric mucosa, and that instead of the
presence of water in the stomach re
sulting in a dilute gastric Juice, it, on
the other hand, occasions the secretion
of a juice of higher concentration than
under ordinary circumstances.
"More recently Fowler and Hawk
have'made a study of the metabolis in
fluences of copious water drinking with
meals. A normal man, 22 years of age.
was studied for a preliminary period
and then for a period of five days, dur
ing which he drank 'three quarts of
water a day with his meals. The re
sult showed an increase In weight of

A Cleveland paper tells of a tramp
who came to the back door of a resi
dence and begged for shoes. The mis
tress of the house gave him a good pair
and said to him: 'There, put these on,

just happen around here some morning

Some time after the lady was awaken
ed early one morning by some one
scraping the sidewalk in front of the
house. Looking out, she found that
there had been quite a heavy fall of
snow, and there she beheld the tramp
to whom she had given the shoes, clear
ing away the snow from the sidewalk
with an old broken shovel. When he
caught sight of his benefactress at the
window, he raised his tattered hat to
her, and, his self-imposed task finished,
went away without saying a word or
even asking for anything to cat. Three
times the same thing happened during
the winter, but tho man never asked
for compensation or food, repeats Ori
son Swett Marden in the Success Mag
azine. A New York woman once invited a
ragged, dirty beggar into her house,
and after he had had a comfortable
meal and some clean clothing, she sent
him away with words of encourage
ment, telling him that he was made for
something better than tramping; that
it was a shame for a man of his appar
ent intelligence and good health to be
getting a living in such a disgraceful
This lady became embarrassed finan
cially and was in sore need of money.
She asked a friend where she could
borrow $500, but he could not accom
modate her, nor did he know of any
one who could. Next day, to her great
astonishment, a man, a total stranger,
as she thought, called at her house and
told her that he had heard she was
pressed for money, and that he had
come to lend her the amount she need
ed. With growing surprise, she asked
how it was that a complete stranger,
whom she had never seen, was willing
to trust her. Tho man then explained
that he was the tramp whom, a year
before, she had taken to her home and
treated like a brother; that her kind
ness on that occasion had been the
turning point in hij career; had made
a mail of him again; that he had pros
pered beyond his deserts, and that
ever since he had gotten on his feet he
had been wishing for an opportunity to
show his appreciation of what she had
done for him.
Need of a Fire Alarm System JLs Im
perative. It is sincerely to be hoped the pres
ent Rock Island city council will not
b'j gi.ilry of the neglect that has been
apparent in Rock Island for the past
2') years in the matter of a reliable
automatic fire alarm system, now that
th'.: question is once more under con
sideration and that an appropriation
has been made to apply on the pur
chase. It is, as indeed, it has been
fo. years, as Tho Argus has frequently
printed out the crying need of Rock
I; land, and if there is one proposition
that city finances, no matter how
stringent, should be stretched to meet
it is to insure this safeguard. In other
words, it requires economy of less than
1 per cent in some of the other appro
priations to put it through. Experi
ences, b'-tter experiences in innumera
ble instances, have taught Rock Island,
or should have taught it, the need of
a comprehensive alarm system. The
ciry has paid the cost of neglect in
this respect time and again. It has
meant business loss, loss of homes,
loss of factories, and loss of employ
ment to many men.
No more efficient or better equipped
fire department exists than Rock Isl
and possesses, but its usefulness has
always been impaired, and is constant
ly impaired, and its efficiency checked
by the absence of a perfect alarm sys
tem. A fire department, no matter
how proficient and reliable, but with
out a guide is like a ship at sea in a
storm without a rudder. The guide
is afforded by an automatic alarm.
Rock Island has not this advantage.
It has dealt in makeshifts, that have
been costly on the one hand, by reason
of the constant requirements of repair
and Ineffectual in all too many In
stances. In the time of fire call emergency,
th- telephone is the least reliable of
try means of communication. Te

prove In many instances more
reliable in locating the fire. In the first
place the telephone is often slow in
responding just when you want it the
most. There is more or less excitc
nieut in sending in the call, and with
the numerical street and avenue desig
nation that prevails In Rock Island,
confusion Is more apt to be the rule
than the exception. A call to Eigh
teenth street and Eighth avenue ts
just as apt to be given or understood
a? Eighteenth avenue and Eighth
street with the result that the depart
ment is sent on a jump in the very
oj posite direction from the fire. There
have been numerous instances of this
nature. The same experience has
been had in the confusion of Thir
teenth street and Thirteenth avenue.
But with a mechanical automatic
alarm, without the intervention of the
human voice, such mistakes are im
possible. Fifty-two alarm boxes prop
erly distributed .with privare boxes in
ike factories, hotels, theatres and
schools, would make a reasonable be
ginning, and Rock Island would be as
sured the degree of safety that has
long been lacking, witn trie added ad
vantage of a reduction in insurance
rates. Rock Island has suffered for
some time the humiliation of. being
tho only city of "its class that has been
stumbling along with an antiquated
and patched up fire alarm system, and
it is time to be up to date, r.ot only
for reputation's sake, but because it is
expedient and essential to public
The old boxes might then be turned
over to the police department where
they will answer all purposes for the
patrol system, but there should be no
attempt to combine the two as hereto
fore. Tlio fire alarm sounds in the
police station as well as in every fire
station, and when it rings there is r.o
opportunity for mistake as to the loca
tion of the fire.
The result is instantaneoiTs and time
r money when a fire starts.

A prominent physician down in
Georgia, went through a food exper
ience which he makes public:
"It was my own experience that
first led me to advocate Grape-Nuts
food, and I also know from having
prescribed it to convalescents and
other weak patients that tho food is
a wouderi'ul rebuildcr and restorer
of nerve and brain tissue, as well as
muscle. It improves the digestion
and sick patients always gain just
as 1 did in strength and weight, very
"I was in such a low state that
I had to give up my work entirely
and go to the mountains of this state
but two months there did not im
prove me; in fact I was not quite as
well as when I left home. My food
did not sustain me and it became
plain that I must change, then I be
gan to use Grape-Nuts and in two
weeks I could walk a mile without
the least fatigue and in five weeks
returned to my homo and practice,
taking up hard work again. Since
that time I have felt as well and
strong as I ever did in my life.
"As a physician who seeks to help
all sufferers I consider it a duty to
make these facts public."
Trial 10 days on Grape-Nuts when
the regular food does not seem to
sustain the body will work miracles.

Then her gaze fell upou tbe figure of

A wide brimmed bat was drawn over

"Sure thing. Miss Molly," be said
heartily: then he watched her disap
pear down the long street and out
upon the short cut through tbe canyon
to Crow mountain. The afternoon sun
sbone on her hatless head and the
light wind fluttered her pink skirts as
the little mare broke Into a gallop.
Once she drew rein and took a swift
survey of the country.
Mile after mite the mare covered,
scrambling up steep hillsides and slid
ing recklessir down tbe slopes. Molly,
with blazing eyes and compressed lips,
watched for tbe reappearance of the
sorrel horse and its slouching rider.

then she turned and looked back along
the trail for some sign of tbe approach
of Pete Clarkson. If he returned to
tbe cabin, as be had intended doing, be

With heart beating in time to tbe
muffled thud of Daisy's hoofs, she drew
rein on tbe crest of the ledge and
looked about for Dave Lumly. but he
was not In sight, and with resumed
confidence she cantered along the nar

"Stop there or I'll fire!" 6he said
"What do you want?" he growled,
looking at her out of stealthy red eyes.
"I want you to put that paper back

Several horsemen were riding rapidly
