tendent for the past two years, leaves
to accept a position as salesman with
the Lindsay Air Products company of
Chicago. The specialty which Mr.
Wilson will handle is their oxy-acet-ylene
torch for welding and cutting
boiler sheets. Mr. Wilson came to
Silvis from Valley Junction, at which
place he was chief clerk to the mas
ter mechanic. His many friends will
be pleased to learn of his advance
ment. At Y.M.C.A.
The Y. M. C. A. boys enjoyed a
splendid meeting yesterday afternoon.
Robert J. Buchanan was the speaker.
He used a large number of very fine
Etereopticon pictures, and gave a very
unusual talk. He intermingled in his
talk and his pictures the incidents of
today with the stories and incidents
connected with the life of Christ in a
way that brought the latter right into
vital contact with the thought of the
boys. Pictures of warships, for m
Ftance, suggested lessons from the
Prince of Peace. Columbus crossing
the Atlantic in search of new lands
brought out a strong lesson in faith.
The pilot going on board an ocean lin
er suggested the need of the great pi
lot on life's journey.
The entire series of talks and rapid
fire remarks was thoroughly enjoyed
by the large audience of boys.
A small company of men gathered
for the men's afternoon meeting. Rev.
W. J. Leach, who was to have spoken,
was unable to be present, and so an
impromptu program of considerable
interest was given by the men present,
with Rev. Marion Humphreys in
charge. Mr. Humphreys announced
the appointment of two committees to
have charge of the men's meetings
during the winter. For the regular
meetings the committee in charge con
sists of H. E. Curtis, Joseph
Willmer, and Wr. B. Stine. For per
paration for the occasional "big meet
ings" F. D. G. Walker, H. W. Snouse,
and H. K. 'Walker are the committee.
This evening at S o'clock, the an
nual meeting of the V. M. C. A. will be
held. Four directors' terms expire:
this year, and the principal business ;
of the meeting will be to elect their j
successors. Those whose terms expire !
are I. J. Green. R. A. Vaughan, L. j
Ostrom, and W. E. Martin. Following j
this annual meeting, the board of di-
rectors will hold a short meeting to re- j
organize for the year.
The delegates from Sunday schools
are to meet tomorrow evening at 7:30,!
to form their permanent organization
and to get ready to make the league
effective. They will meet at the Y. M.
The executive committee of the Men
morrow evening at the Y. M. C. A. at
7:30. together with the department
chairmen, to make further plans for
the pushing of their work.
The officers of the Tri-City Social
Service club will meet at the Y. M. C.
A. Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, for
conference as to the season's work for
the club. It Is expected that the first
meeting for the season will be held

Malaria is a disease which gradually destroys the strong, nourish
ing elements of the blood. When the malarial poison begins to absorb
the rich, red corpuscles of the circulation, we see pale, sallow com
plexions and a general impairment of health. As the blood becomes
weaker the appetite fails, digestion is disturbed, chills and slight
fever are frequent, and in aggravated cases boils and eruptions break
out on the flesh. Malaria is blood poverty, and the only way to cure
the trouble is to enrich and purify the circulation. Noihing is equal
to 5.5.5. as a blood purifier, and it is especially adapted to the cure of
malarial troubles because it contains no harmful minerals, and while
ridding the system of the malarial germs, 5.5.5. builds up the entire
constituion by its fine tonic effects. If you are suffering with
Malaria begin the use of 5.5.5. and rid yourself of this weakening
disease. Book on the blood and any medical advice desired sent free
to all who write and request it. 5. 5.S. is sold at drug stores.
