TYPHOID FEVER WARNING
The Rock Island health department earnestly requests every
one to carefully take notice of the following facts:
1. Typhoid fever is a commu nicable but preventable disease.
2. Typhoid fever is contracted solely by the mouth. If you do
not put the germs (poison) of typhoid fever Into your mouth, you
will never contract typhoid fever. Therefore, watch the mouth.
3. Do not eat or drink anything (water, milk, oysters, fresh veg
etables or anything else) unless it has been first boiled, broiled,
baked, roasted, fried or otherwise thoroughly heated through and
4. Do without all foods or drink which has not first been thus
heated (canned or bottled foods or drinks other than milk or water)
are not Included in this.
5. City water should be boiled at least 20 minutes before us
ing. Continue this and under no circumstances use raw water un
til the mains and reservoirs have been cleaned, the filter plant op
erated permanently and the tests of the filtered water, which will
be published show the water to be safe and pure.
6. If living in the same bouse with a typhoid fever patient, do
not handle your own food or food intended for any one else,
even if it has been heated, except with liands that have been thor
oughly washed with soap and very hot water (preferably also with
an antiseptic ask your physician about the antiseptic to use). Wash
before every meal in this way and before cooking, serving or eat
ing anything or putting the fingers in the mouth.
7. If there are flies about see' that all food and drink is protected
from them at all times. Flies often carry typhoid poison to foods
8. The poison of typhoid fever does not show itself for two
weeks after it enters the body. Therefore, for the next two weeks
typhoid cases may develop from typhoid poison already taken in.
But any such case which develops later than this will be due solely
to neglect of this notice and failure to carry out minutely the di
rections here given.
9. In homes having typhoid fever Insist on the proper care and
treatment of the patient's discharges. This will help to prevent an
other case developing in the same house. Ask your physician about
and a daughter Mary, both residing at
home. The funeral arrangements
will be announced later.

Systematic construction and care of
country roads, with each of the 102

for action, will be possible should the

House bill No'. 474, was introduced by
Representative Homer Tice of Menard

RJTDORSED BY FARMER'S CLUB.
Representative Tice's measure has
been endorsed by the Legislative Far
mer's club and stands excellent pros
pects of being enacted Into law. In
effect It provides that all road and
bridge work in each county shall be
under the direct supervision and con
trol of a county superintendent of
public highways, whose plans must
be approved by the state highways
The county board in each county is
given power to name the superinten
dent, fix his salary, appoint assistants
B. C. V.: Remember this: "A beau
tiful face never lacks interest." It is
to your credit that you wish to remain
young looking as long as possible. Al
though marks of age enlarged pores,
rough skin and premature wrinkles
have begun to show in your once beau
tiful face, yon can easily get rid of
them and regain your charming com
plexion by using this greaseless cream
Jelly. Get an ounce of almosoln from
any drug store; put It in a half pint
cold water, adding two tsaapoonfuls
glycerine; stir and let stand a few
hours. Apply this cream jelly and you
will find It will remove all dirt and ex
cess oil from the pores, make the large
pores smaller and leave your skin soft,
smooth and fresh looking. I find this
excellent for preventing and removing
blackheads, skin pimples, freckle and
chapping. When used as a massage
cream it is just grand for filling out
hollow cheeks and removing wrinkles.
Mrs. T. C: No one can afford to
neglect his or her eyes, although most
people do. If you want bright, clear,
beautiful eyes that will be much ad
mired, you can have them with very
little care. Get an ounce of crystos at
any drug store and dissolve It In a pint
of water. Put two or three drops of
this tonio In each eye daily and you
will be surprised how it will strength
en your weak, tired eyes and make
them strong, healthy and sparkling.
Many ocullBts who use this simple
tonic get excellent results In treating
eye troubles generally. It is very
soothing and has enabled many to dis
pense with wearing glasses.
Elsa: Nature did not intend women
should have hairy growths on the face,
and even though yours is coarse and
dark, as you say, it can be easily and
quickly removed without resorting
to the pain and expense of the elec
tric needle. I would suggest buying
an ounce of delatone and mixing a
little with water to form a stiff
paste. Spread thickly on hairy sur
face and let remain two or three min
utes, then rub off and wash the skin
and the hairs are gone. Druggists
charge a dollar an ounce for dela
tone, but it is well worth it as the
first application usually su faces.
Anita: To restore the youthful tint
and true blonde shade of your hair,
you should wash it with marlax tea,
made by steeping an ounce of marlax
in a pint of water. Before using,
cleanse the hair with canthrox and
dry well, then wash' in the marlax tea,
after which rinse in clear water and
dry. Do this and your hair win be
glossy and fluffy and take on that rich
blonde tint so pleasing to the eye.
Gertrude J.: -The dandruff, itch
ing scalp and brittle, falling hair
with split ends of which you com
plain come from a diseased scalp,
due to the presence of germs. The
surest way to get rid of these trou
bles quickly and remove the germs
will be to shampoo twice a month
with canthrox and rub into your
scalp twice a week a quinine hair
tonic made by dissolving one ounce
of quinzoln in half a pint of alco
hol, then adding half a pint of cold
water. Use this tonic regularly and
it will remove the dandruff. and ir-
ritatlon, stop your hair from falling
out and make it soft and glossy.
If needed, and appropriate funds for
the expense of the department The
superintendent's term of office is four
years. A non-resyient may be ap
pointed, but in this case he must re
move to and become a legal resident
of the county wherein appointed. A
bond of not lees than $5,000 nor more
than $50,000 is required of each super
intendent. nrTiEs of srPKRiwn5?rnE?sT.
One of the first duties of the county
superintendent will be to classify pub
lic highways into three divisions, as
First class, the main highways con
necting the principal points in the
county following the most traveled
Second class, the principal roads
leading to the main highways.
Third class, all by-roads and minor
Maps shall be prepared, showing all
public highways, the location of
bridges, culverts and other topograph
ical features as may be deemed of
value. When approved by the state
highway commission copies of such
maps must be filed, two in the coun
ty Effected, and one at the state tap
itol. It is made the duty of the super
intendent to advise with the township
or county highway commissioners in
regifi to all expenditures for roads
and bridges and no money is to be ex-
I pendi by either county, township or
road o .strict officials for bridge con
struction except with the approval of
Theremuutbean annual report ma1e by
the superintendent to the state highway
commission, giving complete details
of a".l work done under his charge,
with the cost. The county superin
tendent is not allowed to hold any
other official position, nor be engaged

COVSfTT HAS POWER.
Thore are no requirements in the
Tice bill for any particular kind of
road?. Each county is left to deter.
jmine whether it wants htehwata of
earth or those built along lines of per
manent hardness. If enacted into law
It must be adopted by each county
separately. Fifty or more landown

tion submitted at any regular elec
Zoa: You must not use face pow
der if you want a smooth, rosy,
healthy complexion. Powder enters
the pores, enlarges them and even
tually causes coarse, sallow skin
then wrinkles. To have a smooth
skin that looks natural and not ar
tificial, yon must use a. lotion. Here
Is a splendid recipe for an inexpen
sive one: Get from any drug store
four ounces of spnrmax, dissolve It
in a half pint 6f hot water, adding
two teaspoonfnls glycerine. Apply
this lotion to your face, neck and
arms, rubbing gently a few moments
and it will lend a most charming
tone to your skin. Spurmax lotion
removes the shins and gives a clean,
clear, wholesome look to a sallow
skin. If you desire a really charm
ing complexion, taboo face powders.
They nib off too easily and give that
readily noticeable "painted " look
which this lotion does not. This lo
tion is fine for cold sores, frsckles,
pimples and a sure protection to a
delicate skin from biting winds and
changes of weather.
Sylvia: Never wash your hair with
soap. The alkali in soap is Injur
ious to the hair, and In time will eat
the vary life out of It, causing your
hair to become streaky and spilt at
the ends. For a really good sham
poo, simply dissolve a teaapoonful
of canthrox In a cup of hot water.
Shampoo and rinse with clear wa
ter. This shampoo lathers abun
dantly, removes all dirt, dandruff
and excess oil, and will leave yoor
hair soft, glossy and fluffy. This
shampoo dries so quickly that it
makes shampooing a real pleasure.
After using it once you will Imag
ine you have twice as much hair as
you have had before.it This Is the
shampoo now used by many of ths
beet hairdressers. After shampoo
ing an application of qulntoin hair
tonio will prove very invigorating
and refreshing to your scalp.
Telia: You can't expect to appear
fascinating with pimples all over
your face. During the winter any
one's blood is likely to. become thick
and sluggish from accumulated poi
sons, which frequently find an out
let in the face. This condition can
be overcome b taking a good sys
tem tonic and blood purifier. An
excellent and inexpensive, old-fashioned
tonio of tried merit is mad
with kardene. Dissolve one Ounce
of kardene in a half pint alcohol,
then add a half cup sugar and
enough hot water to make a quart.
Take a tablespoonful before each
meal and you will soon feel like a I
new person, and your complexion 1
will clear and take on a healthy!
Kate: (a) Reducing your weight
without plenty of exercise and diet-
ing may appear quiet difficult, but
I have a formula that has worked j
wonders where other remedies have'
failed. Put four ounces of par
notls in 1 hi pints hot water. When
cold, strain out the sediment and,
take a tablespoonful of the liquid be
fore each meal. It Is a harmless
remedy and leaves the skin free
from flabblne8s. (b) To make your
eyes bright and .healthy, use crystos
