FORECAST FOR ROCK ISLAND. DAVENPORT. MOUSE AND V1CTX ITT.
Generally fair tonight and Saturday, colder tonight with the lowest temperature to
right about 5 to 10 degrees above zero.
The northwestern area of high
pressure overlies the territory from
the eastern Rocky mountain slope to
the upper Mississippi valley, with its
crest over the Dakotas. Low, or rela
tively low, pressures prevail elsewhere,
with a decided barometric depression
over western Colorado. This distribu
tion of air pressure has been attended
by precipitation in about all sections
covered by the morning reports, except
the Canadian normwest. Much lower
temperatures are accompanying the
northwestern high, the thermometers I Rock Island 34
registering below zero from Alberta,
Saskatchewan and Manitoba southward
to Wyoming and northern Nebraska,
and freezing weather extending to
northern Texas. Owing to the east
ward movement of these conditions,
generally fair weather is indicated for
this vicinity tonight and Saturday,
with colder tonight.

The military band of the Iowa Sol
diers' Orphans' home of Davenport
gave a concert at the high school audi
torium yesterday after school. All the
pieces were well rendered. There
were a large number of the graded
school pupils present. J. V. Casto of
the high school faculty wrote a num
ber of the pieces which were render
ed and the "I. S. O. H." march, which
was the first number on the program,
was written expressly for the band.
There were a number of solos, both
vocal and instrumental. The high
school orchestra is to go to Davenport
at some date after Easter to return the
compliments of the orphans' band.

Augustana has again been the recip
ient of a valuable donation of books
for its library, the heirs of the late
Dr. D. W. Brandelle, who, at the time
of tils death, was a professor of Bow-
doin college, Lewiston, Maine, having I
donated bis private library of 300 vol
umes to the college. Dr. Brandelle
passed away last summer. He was an
Augustana alumnus, being a graduate
of the class of 1S99. All the books
which baa been received are standard
and up-to-date and will fill many gaps
in the college library collection. Most
of the B00 books deal with history, po
litical economy and sociology and will
form a good nucleus for a working li
brary in this line. Included in thia do
ration are several valuable sets which
are practically new, such as the New
Cambridge Modern History, New' Edi
tion of International Encyclopedia
(Just out), Bryce's American Common
wealth (latest edition), Harte'a Amer-
can National Series, Robinson's Read- j
ing and History, American History as
Told by Contemporaries, Rhodes His
tory of the United States, etc. Marcus
'Skarstedt, assistant librarian, ezpresa-
' h1ma1f a varv tiIaasaH with this
donation and stated that it was one of
the most valuable additions to Angus
tana's collection of reference books In
recent years. The books are being
placed on the shelves now and will be
ready for use in a few days.
The simplest aids to- beauty are
often most effective. I know of no tru
er beautiler for the complexion than
a simple lotion made by dissolving an
original package of mayatone in a
half pint of witch hazel. Gently rub
on face, neck and arms, and you will
be delighted with results. It "will not
rub off like powder but makes the skin
smooth, soft and satinlike. It re
' stores and preserves youthful loveli
' nees of the skin.
Drying the hair makes washing the
:head a trying task. Dry shampooing
leaves the hair clean, light, fluffy and
beautifully lustrous. Put a cupful of
cornmeal in a fruit Jar, add the con
tents of a small original package of
therox and shake well together. Sprin
kle a little on the head and brush thor
oughly. That is all there is to it, and
this treatment will make the hair grow
If anything will.
It is Impossible for a woman to look
her best when she is Buffering from a
cold. The best remedy for colds, ca
tarrh, sore throat, bronchitis, tonsilit
is, pleurisy, stiff neck, croup, etc.,
is Mother's Salve. It is easy to use and
quick to act.
Some women feel humiliated be
cause of downy growth or wild hairs.
These can 'be easily and almost in
Istantly removed by the application of
delatone paste. Mix enough powder
ed delatlone with water to cover the
hairy surface; apply and after two or
three minutes rub off, wash the skin
and the hairs will be gone.

Before any sore can heal, the cause which produces it must be removed.
As long as the blood, from which our systems receive their necessary nour
ishment and strength, remains impure and contaminated with disease germs,
any old sore on the body will remain open, and resist every efiort made to
heal it. The nerves and tissues of the flesh around the places are continu
ally fed with unhealthy matter and nulure is fcimply disposing of the poisxn
by draining it from the system throcgh the sore. The only cure for an old
sore is a thorough cleansing of the blood, entirely ridding the system of ti e
cause. S. S. S. heals old sores by removing every particle of impurity from
the circulation. It goes down to the very bottom of the trouble and so com
pletely cleanses the circulation that there is no longer any impurity to draia
through the sore, but the place is once more nourished with rich, health
ful blood. , S. S. S. heals the sore from the bottom, the place soon fells -
Vrith healthy, firm flesh, the tenderness leaves, all discharge ceases, the
jtin regains its natural color and when S. S. S. has thoroughly cleansed and
purified the blood the place is permanently healed. Dock on Sores and
