Close Cad for Officer Police Offic
er George Halligan had a narrow es
cape from serious injury Thursday
evening la trying lo stop a horse which
was being driven at what he consid
ered an excessive speed. Floyd Henry
was driving the horse and with him
were William Mas ton and two women.
Officer Halligan claimed they were
going at an excessive rate of speed
and that he tried to stop them, when
Henry "turned the horse towards him,
knocking him down beneath the ani
mal's feet. He was considerably
bruised, but arrested the men. At the
trial the officer was disposed to be
lenient and asked the mayor to let
the men off. Henry was fined $5 and
costs, bat this was lowered to (1 and
costs on the request of the officer.
Mas ton was fined $1 and costs, but the
fine was remitted on promise of good
Interurban Through Blue Grass.
Unofficial announcement has been
made that the Davenport-Mascatine
intern ran will go via Blue Grass, di
rect, instead of around to Buffalo
and then north to Blue Grass, as had
been considered by the principal
stockholders. This settles a question
that has been In debate for months, as
both routes had been surveyed and no
agreement could be reached as to the
most practicable route. Buffalo, it is
said, was anxious to have the line j
through their city. If Buffalo was toj
be taken in it would be necessary to
make a considerable detour, thus mak
ing the line four miles longer than
the more direct route through JBlue
Grass. The work will probably be
commenced at .an early date, as the
contract the grading beyond Blue
Grass has already been let.

Do Your Cooking in the Cool
A hot kitchen is little better than a prison in summer. But
the range is there, so all the cooking and the washing must be
done there, too.
What a relief it would be to move the range where you
pleased. You can do this with a New Perfection Oil Cook
stove cook your dinner out on the porch, if you like. It is the
only range that is really portable that works eaually well in
any place. There are no connections to be made, as in a gas
range ; no wiring, as with an electric stove ; no sooty Hues and
ash-filled grates, as with coal or wood.
The long, enameled chimneys carry the heat directly up to
saucepans, oven or boiler ; you get full value from your fuel,

The Treatment In revr Ca
Quinine Wrought a Chang.
In 1832, when the French were con
ducting a campaign of conzaeet la Al
geria, the mortality among the trsops
and colonists there was frightful.
France was being continually called
upon for fresh levies of men and
youths to supply this terrible loss,
chiefly from fever incidental to the
At that time the practice ef bleeding
still prevailed. "Bleed them till they
are white" was the Injunction which
Broussais. the head physician of the
French, gave to his followers when
the condition of the soldiers was re
ported to him.
At Bone in one year oat of an effec
tive force of 6,500 men, 1,100 died of
Illness in the hospital. Most of them
had been "bled to the white."
At this time the effects of sulphate
of quinine were known, but few phy
sicians ventured to employ It. One,
Maillot, had interested himself in the
new remedy and. going- to Bone In the
medical service of the 'government, be
resolved to see If it would not reduce
the frightful mortality, which was one
to every three and one-half men who
entered the hospital.
At first he employed , the quinine
merely as an adjunct to the bleeding.
He soon found that bleeding was kill
ing, the men and that quinine was sav
ing them. Little by little be left off
bleeding, to the great scandal of the
Exactly in proportion as the bleeding
ceased the deaths in the hospital de
creased. In two years the deaths fell
off from one in three and a half of all
who entered the hospital to one In
twenty and finally to one In forty-six.
Maillot, quite naturally enough, be
came an earnest opponent of bleeding,
but he was so actrvely resisted and so
ceaselessly viliSed that be became em
bittered toward his colleagues.
Nearly thirty years passed before
Maillot saw the complete triumph of
bis ideas. Doctors continued to bleed
their patients heartily for all manner
of ills. But in 1800 Maillot was made

Missed a Train That Was a Day Late.
When the Swltz City division of the
Illinois Central was built it was known
as the Indiana and Illinois Southern.
It was a narrow gauge road; the road
bed was bad, the engines and cars
were built on a miniature scale, and.
while there was a schedule, had a train
been on time the fact would have been
regarded as a miracle. The road was
known as the "Try-Weakly." On one
occasion Josiah McConnell desired to
go to Switz City from Sullivan, but
missed the train by a minute or two.
The clock at the station showed that
the train bad left Sullivan Ave min
utes ahead of time, and McConnell
sued the railroad company for $5,000
damages. On a trial of the case It was
proved beyond a doubt that the train
McConnell missed should have gone the
day before and was really twenty
three hours and fifty-five minutes late.
' Lettres da Cachet.
Lettres de cachet was the name giv
en in France to warrants sealed with
tbe king's seal ordering persons to be
thrown into prison or exiled. The
first came into use about 1670 and
shortly became one of the popular ter
rors of France. It Is said that no less
than 9.000 lettres de cachet were is
sued during the reign of Louis 211V.
and 80.000 during the reign of Louis
XV. In many cases these terrible doc
uments were secretly sold and used
as a source of illicit revenue. They
were frequently signed In blank, and
the bolder of one of these royal ter-
, rors could write In the name of any
person against wbom he happened to
j bare a grudge. The national assem
j bly abolished this iniquitous privilege
1 of issuing lettres de cachet on Nor. L
"It cured me," or "it saved the life
of my child," are the expressions you
hear every day about Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diorrhoea remedy.
This is true the world over where this
valuable remedy has been Introduced.
No other medicine in use for diarrhoea
or bowel complaints baa received such
general approval. The secret of . the

era and Diarrhoea remedy Is that It

Attorney MagQI . devoted the early
hours of Thursday evening to practice.
and the friends who witnessed his
performance at tlie corner of Fifth
avenue and Tenth street are authority
for the statement that he will present
something unique at the gridiron
Mr. Magil was a passenger in
Henry F. Ylerlclf s automobile Thurs-
afternoon. He desired to reach home
and expected Mr. Vierich to turn the
car south on Tenth street, taking a
bluff route to Twelfth avenue and Fif
teenth street. When Mr. Vierich, In a
spirit of fun, turned his car to take
the state's attorney farther from home
there was a scramble. A moment af
ter Mr. Maglll had thrown open a door
of the car and his exit followed.
Proof that the practice exhibition
was really ptaged is carried by the
state's attorney in the form of a beau
tifully colored optic. He was bruised
about the body, but not so seriously
but that he is able to be on the street
Friday, though his handsome summer
suit is out of commission. The suit
mixed rwlth Fifth avenue pavement;
result is that it is now undergoing re
pairs in a tailor's emporium. Expecta
tion is that it will be ready for service
the afternoon and evening of the frolic.
Evidence Conflicts. Conflicting evi
dence was offered before a coroner's
Jury which heard testimony in con
nection with the death of P. A. Carl
son, killed Thursday by a Burlington
train at the Second 6treet crossing.
Two Greeks, eye witnesses to the
tragedy, swore that the flagman, Mike
O'Connell, was under the Influence of
liquor. P. J. Reynolds, section fore
man for the road In ' Moline, also wit
nessed the accident, and he asserted
emphatically that O'Connell had not
been drinking. He testified that he
conversed with the flagman both be
fore and after the accident and that
O'Connell was sober and qualified to
discharge his duties at the crossing.
Three members of the crew of the
train which ran down Carlson, J. C.
Stanley, conductor, A. M. Reninger,
engineer, and Lawrence Foraker, fire
man testified, as did Elmer Wolfley,
a youth who resides a short distance
from the scene of ,the accident.
Evidence shows that the whistle and
bell of the engine which struck Carl
son were both used to warn him of ap-
