musical comedy with long runs In the
larger cities to its credit. Don Mac
Miilan succeeds Otis Harlan in the
leading comedy role, and those who
have seen both actors say that Mac
Millan is funnier than hi3 predecessor.
The play was seen in Davenport Sat
urday, and in Moline last evening, and
the reports from, both cities are most
complimentary. People seeking clean
entertainment, pretty music and clever
comedy will make no mistake in going
to the Illinois this evening.
. JOSE IN PRETTY PLAY.
Richard Jose, best remembered as
tenor balladist with the larger min
strel organizations, at the Illinois last
evening, offered his new play, "Silver
Threads," a story woven about the
song of that title that won him the
plaudits of the public. The play is
suggestive of "Tne Old Homestead."
Jose does the singing, and he does It

FINE LEGAL WORK
Drawing .i oij; uingat'e. espe
rially wh n it fs to be the basis for an
issue of bonds it is desired to dispose
of in the open market, is a task far
greater than most people have any
idea of. Sometimes months of con
tinuous luborelapse between the be
ginning of-the. OrSt draft and the final
approval of the ' last revised copy by
those most directly ' concerned. The
primary object, of sach a formidable
legal Instrument is. of course, to define
clearly and exactly what the mortga
gor will do. The individual or com
pany in whose favor the mortgage is
drawn, however, through his attorney
seeks to protect himself from every
possible contingency. Some of these
possibilities that are sought to be
guarded against appear to be absurd
to the lay mind.
Some years'; ago a boat line whose
vessels plied on a certain river desir
ed to mortgage its property and issue
bonds. Ore of the provisions of the
legal Instrument provided what should
be done in the event of the river dry
ing tp or Becoming Impossible to navi
gate. As the stream was a mighty
flood of watcrNat all seasons, the pos
sibility of this contingency arising
seemed out of all reason, but the attor
neys for the mortgagee insisted upon
Its insertion. .Nothing has happened
to the river as yet.
The commonest weakness of a mort
gage and one that may escape the
ordinary eye Is not the use of the
wrong word to express the desired
meaning, but the use of not exactly
the right one. After the mortgage has
been worked into, shape so that Its
provisions are., satisfactory '. to both
sides the lawyers who draw the mort
gage In the first i instance, prepare a
list of words about whose meaning
they fear' there may be some dispute
and turn this llat over to the expert
etymologist who. is in charge of the
library in every big office. This man
prepares a report which . shows not
only the dictionary, definition of each
one of these words, but also furnishes
a list of all legal decisions that have
been made relative, to its exact signifi
cance. This . expert belng advised of
the particular, shade, of meaning it Is
desired to convey, also furnishes an
opinion as to what is the right word,
supporting his statement by a list of
such legal decisions as may apply. All
these reports are carefully bound to
gether and become a part of the mass
of papers, sometimes weighing many
ponnds, that accumulates while the
mortgage is being drawn. They are
filed away when it is finished,
i After the mortgagor's counsel nave
completed drawing up the Instrument
as they think if should be It passes to
the attorneys on the other side, who
pick as many flaws as possible In It
They, too, pay special attention to the
exact meaning of words, and frequent- i
ly. their experts Question the defini
members of hia company. The play Is
nicely mounted, and Is Interpreted by
"ISLE OF SPICE."
The "Isle of Spice" was given at the
Illinois, matinee and night, Saturday.
It has been seen here before, 'but in
the interim, unfortunately, it has fallen
into Inferior hands.

the two firms of attorneys have settled

this takes a great deal of time and
costs a great deal of money.

The time Is at hand when the ex

new car may be of the same type and
similar in general design, but there are
always sure to be a number of details
that differ, and it is these that the
new owner must study carefully and
master if he wishes to guard against
running into trouble, as he is almost
sure to do if be starts off with only a
superficial inspection of the car.
One of the chief things to study in a
new car is its system of lubrication,
which should be free and plentiful,
with due consideration for the trou
' bles induced by excessive supply to the
cylinder. This usually causes rapid '
fouling of ignition points. But a new
cylinder generally lets more oil past
the piston at first than it will eventual
ly do after a little running, so the oil
supply should not be cut down too
much because of this symptom unless
it continues after the car has been
thoroughly "shaken down" by use.
All important nuts and bolts 6houId
be scrutinized after a run, especially
those supporting detached parts of
the mechanism, such as the silencer,
carburetor, piping, pumps, etc., not, of
course, omitting those of the steering
and brakes. It Is not always super
fluous to verify the freedom of gaso
line, water and lubricating oil pipes
from obstructions arising from dirt or
waste left In the tanks.

the water tank and see that the tap

that the gear box Is plentifully sup

grease and oil are best If too thick

HUMORS IN THE DL00D
Nature has made ample provision
in the moisture and sunshine of the
air for the outward protection and
healthy condition of the skin. But
the more important work of nourish
ing the cuticle has been left to an in
ward source the blood. It is from
the circulation that the pores and
glands receive their stimulus, and
the fibrous tissues are all preserved
In a healthful state because of con
stant nutriment supplied by the blood.
It is only when the circulation be
comes infected with humors or acids
that we are troubled with skin affec
tions. The humors producing these
troubles are carried through the cir
culation direct to the skin, and their
irritating or inflammatory effect re
mains until the blood is cleansed.

Fill all drop or other lubricators with
a good motor oil, not too thick to
travel along the pipes, and see that the
crank case of the motor has Its charge
of the same and that the steering piv
ots and chains are also attended to.
Turn on and adjust lubricators. Put
on brake and see that change speed

that tires are pumped up bard, as oth

Turn starting handle to see that
compression is good; then open gaso
line tap, switch on current and start
the motor, adjusting mixture If neces
sary. In case of failure to start see
If gasoline reaches the carburetor; If
so, whether the Inlet valve sticks;
then seek for the cause of failure in
Ignition. Do not try to start with gaso
line tap, throttle or the switch turned
off. It has often been attempted, but
seldom succeeds. Drop in your cratch
or its representative gently and try
the brakes in the same manner.
Next to having parts of a vehicle so
perfect that they never need inspec-.
tion or adjustment, the most desirable
of all things Is to have them easily
accessible when in the natural order
of things they do have to be attended
to. In the early types of motor ve
hicles no other feature of value was
more neglected than this.
TREATMENT WHICH HAS
NEVER YET FAILED
Every Case of Liquor Drinking Has
Been Successfully Treated.
In the beautiful city of Davenport,
at 821 Farnam street, Is the home of
the Neal Three Day Liquor Cure,
which is known far and wide as the
most successful treatment in the
world for all forms of drunkenness.
Just think of It! The Neal treat
ment has never yet failed in a single
case to make a cure and it never
will, for It is a perfect antidote for
alcoholic poisoning and alcohol Is
just as deadly a poison as any of
the strong acids, only it acts more
slowly. Of all the liquor cures known
the Neal is the only one that claims
even to make a cure in three days
time, and without hypodermic injec
tions or injurious drugs.
It makes no difference how long
the patient has been drinking, how
much, or how little, or what he drinks,
the result is always the sam. Not
only is all craving for alcoholic drink
completely destroyed but In addition
the patient is rapidly restored, men
tally and physically, to a normal
