of men to the highest standard of manhood. It is adopted especial

We sometimes wonder how people can be skeptical as to the
power of our treatment to cure them when they know the founda

the vitality of the body is Electricity; so get that back as we give it

On account of the great rush of patients and the numerous
special requests received, asking for an extension of the free treat
ment offer, due to the fact that they have only recently begun to
realize the marvelous results to be obtained from the use of elec
tricity when properly applied, and being desirous of adding at least
20 more new testimonials to his list of cured, Dr. Bartz has con
cluded to extend his free treatment offerto everybody calling be
tween now and July 31.

there was no cure, I did finally

not only removed my pain, but
also cured me of the trouble I

WEALTHY CORPORAL UNFIT
Albert J. Myers Fails to Pass Phys
Washington, July 23. Albert J.
Myer, known while at Fort Myer as
the "millionaire corporal," grandson of;
General Myer, in whose honor Fort
I Myer was named, has failed to mea
isure up to the physical standard re-
! nil-i nf onlifinfo f nncit inr, y in
the United States navy. Young Myer,
who failed recently iu his ambitions
to gain renown in the military branch
of the service, said failure having
been due, it was said, to the fact that
; too much playing the part of "social
'lion" in the national capital unfitted
him to pass his ardmy examinations.
1 then decided to try for a place as as-
; sistant paymaster in the navy. He
'pasted tha mental part of the test, but
; failed in the physical. When weighed
jit was found that he could not tip the
;ascls at more than 140 pounds, where
as the requirement is 170. Young
Myer, it Is thought," danced much, of
'his weight away while attending social
functions in this city during the past
winter. There is said to be a possi
bility that the physical requirement
in his case may be waived.

Because your case i3 a difficult one,

do not continue to suffer without
giving Lydia E. l'inkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial. It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such as in

pains, backache, that bearing-down

public bath house at Twelfth street
and Third avenue was opened to the

number of street urchlna and many
men from the nearby shops made use

are charged five cents for two baths,
that is, they get a bath with soap
and towel, and a ticket which entitles
them to another. There are four
showers in the place and more-are to
be installed later. The plans for the
public bathing beach were furthered
during the week by gifts amounting
to $1,000 from the Moline Plow com
pany and from the office force there
and it is hoped to raise $5,000 in
all. The beach will be located at the
foot of Eighteenth street.

close and especially those In the
downtown districts. 11. J. Gree'n of
Green Bros., anent the closing says:
"Nearly all of the grocers have agreed
to close their stores Wednesday even

second vice president; George W.
Mixter, third vice president; Burton
F. Peek, treasurer; Schiller Hosford,
secretary; W. D. Wilman, director;
Allan II. Head, shop superintendent.
One of the important matters consid
ered at the meeting was the practical
merging of the Union Malleable plant
at East Moline under the general
management of the home office of
Deere & Co. It is understood that
G. W. Mixter will act in the capacity
of general manager of this plant and
general superintendent over this con

Union Malleable becomes a subsid

ity has been received at the Moline
postoffice to advertise for bids for car

street and FourtiiVvettue. Bids will
be received up to 2 o'clock noon of
Aug. 2. All bids will be forwarded
to Washington without breaking seal.
Where the post office is located only
SO rods distance from the railroad
station, the railroad must itself carry
the mail to and from the depot and
postoffice. The old postoffice gets the
advantage of that but with the new
postoffice the distance is twice that
great, so Uncle Sam will have to
