Fined for Assault.
Tired and dusty, but happy to be
home once more, the 6th cavalry
which for the past month has been
participating in the army maneuvers
at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Saturday
reached Fort Des Moines.
On Saturday, Oct. 1, the 6th em

traveled by rail to Geneseo, 111. There
they disembarked and stripping down
to the regulation riding suits, proceed
ed to Des Moines on Oct. 2.
According to the report of the offi
cers, the weather during the entire
ride of 230 miles from Geneseo to Des
Moines, was perfect. When the 800
men were finally located in their quar
ters at the fort, there was not a man
reported on the sick list. During the
lest day of the march 28 miles were
traveled. The story of the trip, as
written by one of the officers Includes

The regiment went into camp and
participated in all of the various man
euvers during the month of Septem
ber; being the only cavalry regiment
there, they naturally played a very
conspicuous part in the various exer
cises, and were visited by thousands
daily; their mounted guard mounting
and beautifully appointed camp mak
ing them the cynosure of all eyes.
Started Hike at Ceneneo.
The troops left Indianapolis on Oct.
1 by train to Geneseo, 111. There they
detrained and that night hiked to
Green river; then on following daps

The regiment received a royal wel

school adjourning, and the glad hand

After Ordinary Preparations
Pall Wonderful w Mix
tare Made at Home.
An investigating chemist of
national reputation just re
cently discovered in a com
pound known to the medical
world as essence mentho-lax-ene,
a most wonderful virtue
as a curative, laxative cough
syrup, and the best part of it
is, it can be made at home
about eight times cheaper than
one can buy labeled cough syr
ups. It immediately relieves
the severest cases of asthma,
bronchitis, coughs and chronic
colds on the lungs, and it ef
fects a cure,, too, because it
has a laxative action when 8
to 10 doses are taken daily. In
very short order it will loosen
the tightest cough and one can
feel it "taking hold" in its
curative action. Obtain of
the druggist, or have him or
der from wholesale firm 2
ounces essence mentho-laxene.
Empty it into a pint bottle.
Make a syrup with a pint of
sugar and a half pint of boil
ing water, stir and let cool.
Then fill up the bottle with
syrup, shake well and take a
teaspoonful 8 to 10 times daily
or as needed. Give children
less according to age. It is
very pleasant to take.
The distinguished lord bishop of Sal
isbury, England, is to be a visitor at
Augustan a college tomorrow, news to
that effect having been received here
today. The lord bishop is John
Wordsworth, a direct descendant of
the famous English poet, William
Wordsworth, and he is known as one
of the greatest scholars of the English
church. The Swedes are his especial
hobby and he Is in the most cordial
relationship with the Episcopal church
of Sweden and also with the Lutheran
church, to which denomination the
Augustajia synod belongs. His lord
ship preached the sermon at the open
ing service at the Episcopal conven
tion in Cincinnati.

hads that were once bald. Of

entifically, destroying the, germs
which are usually responsible for
baldness. It penetrates to the roots
of the hair, stimulating and nour

toilet necessity, is delicately perfum
ed, and will not gum or permanently
stain the hair.
We want you to get a bottle of
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic and use it
as directed. If it does not relieve
scalp irritation, remove dandruff,
prevent the hair from falling out
and promote an increased growth of
hair, and in every way give entire
