West Sixth street, Davenport, attempt
ed to end his life by Jumping Into the
Mississippi river at the foot of Seventh
street. Rock Island, last evening at C
o'clock. Had it not been for the fact
that a Milwaukee train crew witnessed
the Jump Into the river and fished Has
sett out of the water before he had
done more than wet his wearing ap
parel, he would have succeeded in his
attempt. As it was, Hassett was rush
ed to the police station, and there his
clothes were stripped off of him and
he was rolled in blankets. Prevent
ive measures guarding against pneu
monia were administered.
HAD MONEY IX SHOE.
This morning, Hassett, much the
worse for the week's wear, appeared in
police court. Magistrate C. J. Smith
learned of his residence and communi
cated with members of his family. It
was learned that Hassett left home
last Saturday morning with $300 In
his pockets. Last night $15 was found
tucked away in his shoes. He was to
have deposited the money in the bank
last week. Saturday afternoon .he was
placed under arrest in Rock Island and
f.ned 15 and costs for drunkenness.
He had over $170 on his person when
he left the station. He promised that
he would return home at that time.

Possibly had Hassett not been under
the influence of liquor yesterday he
would not have made the attempt on
his life. As it was, it is more than
probable that he was unaware of his

TO FORCE COMPANY
TO HAUL AWAY SNOW
Because of the fact that the Tri
cky Railway company uses its large
sweepers to clear me car tracks in
Rock Island of snow, and because the
snow is heaped along the tracks on
both sides ana allowed to remain
there, protest is to be filed with offi
cials of the traffic corporation with the
object In view of forcing the company
to haul away the snow after they have
it thrown off oi the tracks. Condi
tions in Rock Island today are largely
responsible to the fact that the com
pany lias left its snow along the
streets where it was thrown by the
sweepers. In Davenport, the company
is forced to haul the snow away from
the tracks and there is no reason why
any other condition should be tolerat
ed in Rock Island. Commissioner Rey
nolds has taken up the matter, and
though it is late for action, the com
pany may be brought to time.

Paul Morton, colored, walked into
the lunch room at the corner of Twenty-fourth
street and Fifth avenue last
night with a companion, and because
the proprietor refused to dish up
couple of sandwiches at less than two
bits apiece, Morton became abusive.
Officer JCinney was called and placed
Morton under arrest. Not desiring to
prosecute him, the proprietor of the
restaurant withdrew the charge this
morning. He stated that he did not
want any trouble with the man, but
that he preferred not to cater to him
in his restaurant and so put up a pro

NEW WAISTS FOR SPRING
Exhibiting the Latest Creations
Exclusiveness in waists, as in other
apparel, depends almost wholly upon
a nice observation. It cannot prop
erly be accomplished even by order
ing everything in sight, for no wom
an wants to navigate the whole sea
of selections in order to find a waist
or two to her liking. That is our
duty. And in the performance of
that duty only a nice observation
can cull from hundreds of offerings
the ideas that deserve to be perpet
uated for a season.
Great as are our assortments ot
waists for spring wear, you can only
appreciate the beauty of them all
when you see the waist that is ex
actly fitted to you.
Don't overlook an early opportun
ity of examining the spring displays,
beautiful and artistic. You will be
charmed with their daintiness.

BIG MEN WORKING FOR HIM
.Macomb Journal Says That He Is
Strong Candidate and the Sup
port He Is Getting Is j
"There is one contest going on
that is being conducted on lines of
good political sense, and that is the
republican congressional fight. The
race Dean Franklin is malting and
the manner in which republicans are
supporting him is most surprising
and gratifying. From present indi
cations he will receive the largest I
majority ever accorded a candidate
in this county under the primary sys
tem. Hancock county is backing him
in the finest kind of style, and men
of influence are out working for him
so that it seems a certainty that he
will leave that county with a big plu
rality. In Warren county he is a
general favorite, and it is conceded
that he will receive the most votes
there. Rock Island county has two
candidates and while Dean's friends
concede them the county, yet he will
get some votes there, and in Mercer
he is conceded as strong as any, with
the result in doubt. Henderson
county Is claimed by all three candi
dates, but he has as good a chance
as any of carrying it. McDonough
county republicans should rally to
his support, as this county has the
opportunity now of securing the con
gressman from this district." Ma
How To Keep Well
To prevent illness, purge the blood of
all poisons. Then you've made a big stride
toward the perfect condition of the entire

to thousands suffering from widely different
affections, that many people keep the extract
in the house at all times. Sensible persons
recognize that such a natural remedy is
valuable as a preventive and for treatment .
of many ailments. When the bowels are
sluggish, the liver torpid, or the kidneys
inactive look out! Your blood needs puri
fying. The most dangerous conditions
commonly result from neglected cases of .
this kind. At such a time, systematic use of
red clover blossoms, known as Necdliam's
Extract, is sure to produce the most bene
