Bailey Circus Grounds.
Joseph Reed, who quit his Job as
laborer with the Ringling circus in
Davenport last Monday, and has since
been employed by the Leonard Con
struction company, is at the Moline
city hospital with a knife wound In
his stomach that may cause his death.
The wound is his penalty for "butting
in ' on a party of colored people who
were spending the afternoon In ' the
vicinity of the Barnum & Bailey circus
grounds In Moline yesterday. Reed
Is colored also. v
The party consisted of George
Walker of Rock Island, John Hagger
of Moline, three women nd two chil
dren. According to the story of Walker,
who is held for the stabbing, a strange
negro, who afterwards proved to be
Reed, came along and started a con
versation with Walker and the mem
bers of his party. Reed was abusive
and used indecent language, Walker
states. Walker advised Reed to make
himself scarce, and he did so, but re
turning shortly afterward with rein
forcements, prepared to "clean the
party. Walker ran, seeing he was to
oe the object of the combined attack.
Stalled; Walker Draw Knife.
He got stalled in a clump of wil
lows, and when he could not go any
further, he says he had the alternative
of fighting or submitting to a beating.
So he pulled his trusty weapon, the
knife, and slashed away at Reed, the
latter's friends retreating when they

HIS 81 ST ANNIVERSARY
Robert Don Celebrates Birthday With
Relatives In City.
Robert Don, a well known Davenport-
er, yesterday celebrated his 81st birth
day anniversary at the home of bis
brother, David Don, and family In
Rock Island. Mr. Don has been a resi
dent of Davenport for over 50 years.
His father dying in 1850, Robert and
James Mcintosh, brothers of his moth
er and old settlers of Davenport, wrote
advising the family to remove to that
city. So they left Montreal, Canada,
in September, 1850, for Chicago, by
lake and rail. From Chicago to Peru,
111., they took the canal, and from there
thoy teamed to Rock Island and cross
ed to Davenport on the boat run by
horse power that then did the ferriage
between Rock Island and Davenport.
They arrived there Sept. 16, 1850, and
Nov. 23 Mr. Don became a clerk In the
J. L. Smith store. In 1854 Mr. Smith
removed to Des Moines, and Mr. Don
removed to Rock Island, opening a gro
cery and afterward running the Eagle
Mr. Don was alderman of Rock Is
land from 1S61-C2 under Mayor Bailey
Davenport. He returned to Davenport
in 1877, and has resided there continu
ously ever since. Mr. Don has retired
from active business, and is spending
his life in well earned ease. The death
of his wife shadowed his home some
years ago, and his nearest relatives are
his brothers, David and Alexander of
Rock Island and William of Des
SENATOR CUMMINS IS
NOT FORMING NEW PARTY
No Authority for Statement Merely
Result of Flight of Editorial
Des Moines, July 22. The story
published broadcast yesterday that
Senator Cummins was organizing a
new party is without a reasonable
foundation, and probably had its or
igin in an imaginary call to progress
ive republicans and democrats pub
lished in an editorial in the Des
Moines News. The editorial, after
quoting this imaginary manifesto,
asks, "Wouldn't it clear the atmos
phere if such a call were issued?"
In the editorial it was suggested
that Roosevelt, Bryan, Plnchot,
Lindsay, Garfield, Heney, Tom John
son, William Allen White, Ray Stan

HERE IS GOOD ADVICE
Don't Drag Yourself Around as if
You Had a Ten-pound Weight
Tied to ' Each Foot.
Don't shut your eyes to the fact
that your youth Is swiftly passing
you by, and that you are missing
most of the enjoyment of life. It's
easy to have a light heart and
sprightly vigor: as to go about from
day to day feeling depressed and
like a "half man."
Size yourself up. Compare your
self with your early days. Have you
gone back? Wouldn't you like the
snap you used to have when you were
It is easy. Pump your body full
of electricity. Go to Dr. Bartz and
he will explain, and as soon as you
see how it is done, and see what oth
er men and women say about it, you
will want the treatment.
Dr. Bartz's plan is to restore
youthful vigor, make men and wo
men feel as they did in early days.
He is doing it for hundreds. Elec
tricity is vital force and he knows
how to apply it.
Pains in your back, rheumatism,
kidney and liver trouble, stomach,
weaknesses. lo6t vitality, lack of en
ergy, gall stones, diseases peculiar
to men and women, all can be cured
by the use of electricity properly ap
plied. FREE TREATMENT NOTICE
Due to the great rush of pa
tients and the numerous special re
quests received, asking for an exten
sion of the free treatment offer, due
to the fact that they have only re
cently begun to realize the marvelous
results to oe obtained from the use
of electricity when properly applied,
and being desirous of adding at least

READ WHAT THE CURED SAY
Mr. Charles Ghesquiere, who re
sides at 313 Fifth street. Moline,
says: "About three months ago I
simply gave out completely with
trouble with my stomach, liver and
kidneys. I was in such shape that
I was utterly unable to work. Fi
nally I decided to investigate Dr.
Bartz's system of treatment, and see
if there was any help for me. Fortu
nately I found there was, for now,
after taking a course I am an entire
ly different man. My stomach does
not bother me any longer, and I
have no more pains, In fact I now
do my regular work as good as
Nervous Debility Cured at Last.
Mr. John Lonsdale of Prince
ton, 111., says: "For years I suf
fered with nervous debility. I
always felt weak, tired and worn
out. It would surprise anyone
if they knew all the different
treatments I had tried. One day
my wife read about Dr. Bartz's
treatment so I decided at her sug
gestion to see him about my case.
The change that came over me
from his treatment not only sur
prised me but my friends as well.
Before I consulted Dr. Bartz I
felt as though I had one foot in
the grave. Now I am well and
strong in every way and have
gained over 15 pounds in weight
and work every day. I really
don't know how to express my
thanks for having been restored
to health once more."
The equipment in Dr. Bartz's offices
is an elaborate one, every instrument
known to science of any value for the
diagnosis and cure of disease is to be
found there- One of the doctor's great
secrets in curing so many diseases is
due to his expert knowledge of the
human body, very frequently, by the
aid of his wonderful instruments, he is
able to diagnose a case, describing and
locating every ache and pain without
asking the patient a single question.
