THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1910.
; I :
OF THE NEIGHBORS I o J
; , Railroad Accepts Ruling of Court
' : That the Milwaukee officials baTe
' , accepted the ruling of tbe courts In
J the matter of reconslgnlng carload
, - freight from Illinois to Iowa points
. with the two local rates applicable
i : was made evident Wednesday when an
' ' order was received by the local
'.- officials of the company to accept such
: ' cars in this city. This order Is the
Dutgrowth of a prolonged fight be
: tween the Milwaukee road and the
. Clark Coal and Coke company, In
which tbe formr held that the inter-
; Btate rate should apply on such ship
ments. The case In point was that of
' . the coal companies wherein coal being
shipped from Illinois points to an'
Iowa destination was billed to Daven
port and reconsigned to the destina
tion, making a cheaper rate. The rail
road refused to accept the cars unless
the coal companies reloaded them in
to cars of the company's and the rail
road commissioners disagreed with
r . them. The case has been appealed
and the recent ruling of the district
I court at Des Moines was the last
tribunal to agree with the shippers.
According to the order which has
i been received by the local railroad
. men it appears that the officials of the
! road intend dropping the fight and
an appeal to higher courts is not Hke-
: ly. This action on the part of the rail
road company ends a fight in which
! the people of a large section of this
state were interested. It was charged
that residents of many smaller towns
with only one railroad connection
and . that the Milwaukee suffered
much hardship on account of the
- fight ;that they were forced to buy
1 the coal from the Milwaukee mines,
or pay a stupendous price for tt on
account of higher freight terms. If the
i : present action of the company which
is presumed to mean . that the coal
coming from Illinois points will be
accepted In Iowa points for recon-
signment regardless of the equipment
holds the people of the northern and
other parts of the 6tate affected will
be more free to choose in the matter
of baying coal.

To Build Auto Testing Track. Con
tracts have been awarded by the Mo
line Automobile company for a con
crete testing track and an automobile
testing building. The type of testing
track that it is proposed to build is
the first of its kind in this part of the
country and speaks of the progresslve
ness of the concern. There are board
and cinder tracks, but there are very
few tracks made of concrete. Henry
W. Horst has both contracts. The
present jquarter-mlle circular cinder
track will be converted into a concrete
track. It will be 16 feet wide. When
completed it will be one of the finest
testing tracks in the United States.
Ground dimensions of the testing build
ing are 60x125 feet. Brick and re
inforced concrete will be used in its
construction. It will be one story high
with a saw-tooth roof. The building
will rise in the center of the testing
track. Cost of the track and building
is not made public. Mr. Horst will
start work at once and building and
track will be rushed to completion.
The building will be equipped with all
of the latestype of machinery.

Dives Into Tank of Paint. Ceriel
Rees, a laborer employed by Deere &
Co., experienced the sensation yester
day of plunging head foremost into a
tank filled, with paint. The dive was
witnessed by 'several employes in the
paint department, and while it had its
humorous side, for. a time it was
thought that results, might prove ser
ious. Rees hauled a truck filled with
steel rods from the blacksmith shop to
the paint department, where they were
to be dipped. The custom is to stand
the truck alongside of a paint tank and
by releasing side rods on the truck
permit the steel rods to fall into the
tank. Rees was tugging at one of the
side rods on the truck, when it gave
way suddenly and he lost his balance,
toppling into the tank. Tbe tank,
which is five feet deep, was full to the
top with a paint preparation known
as asphaltum. Rees' feet remained in
the air and two companions seized
them and pulled him out. Rees was
the rival of any member of the tribes
in darkest Africa when he emerged
from his "bath." Linseed oil and ben
zine were secured and several men set
to work removing the paint from his
face and neck. Afterward he was per
mitted to go to his home. 411 Eighth
street, and change his clothes. For
tunately he did not swallow any of the

Dr. Bartz's system of- treatment will

Here is one of his late testimon
ials. He can refer you to many
others if you want further proof.
Airs. Edward Van Gitsen, who re
sides at 1455 Forty-second street,
Rock Island, says: "All my life I
have had trouble with my stomach
and for the past seven years it has
been exceptionally bad. My tongue
was coated nearly ail the time and
there was hardly a day passed but
what I had a nasty taste in my mouth
together with this unpleasant state
of affairs, I suffered a great deal of
pain in my back and bowels, in fact,
I became so bad I could hardly do
my work. Finally, I began to rea
lize that I would have to have help
soon or else give up completely, so
I made up my mind to consult Dr.
Bartz and try his method of treat
ment. I am glad I did so, for now
I can hardly find words to express
my delight to think what a success
his treatment has been In my case.
I really feel like a new woman. The
pains from which I suffered and that
distressed feeling In my stomach has
all left me, the food all tastes natur
al again, in fact, I feel perfectly well
The above case well illustrates the
marvelous work that is being accom
plished at Dr. Bartz's offices, which
are located in the Peoples National
Bank Building, (Fourth Floor), cor
ner Second avenue and Eighteenth
street, Rock Island. His offices are
nearly always crowded with patients,
some of whom come long distances to
be treated. His treatmnet is indeed
wonderful as pains and aches are
frequently relieved in a few minutes'
Notice All patients calling at Dr.
Bartz's offices between now and Aug.
31 are treated free until cured.
This offer was extended until then,
on account of the fact that the con
servative patients were only recent
ly beginning to realize and appreci
ate the true merits of his successful
method of treatment and besides Dr.
Bartz is anxious to add at least 10
more recommendations to his list of
cured as he firmly beiieves that
one cured patient can do more good in
a community than a whole page of
