time by the Gust Ed Construction com

firm, in the sum of ft) 10,000, through
his attorney, John K. Scott.
Hansen was standing on a trestle,
taking out some storm windows, when
another workman passed behind him,
carrying two pails of morter and upon
being summoned by the foreman he
placed them on the plank back of

The Davenport Democrat has the
following concerning a Davenporter
who is well known In Rock Island:
Da ven porters liked the record made
by Representative Thomas W. Griggs
in the last legislature so well that
they insist that he shall again be a
candidate for the office, and Mr.
Griggs has consented to allow his
name to go before the primary In
June. Mr. Griggs is the type of young
man whom It is well to keep in the
public service, when once he is there.
He was an active and diligent repre
sentative, alert in looking after the in
terests of his constituents, and stand
ing for the development of the state
at large. Scott county will deserve
to be congratulated if a large compli
mentary vote for Mr. Griggs makes
him a candidate of the democracy
again this summer and later returns
him to his good work in Des Moines.
DON'T BE BALD

Growth of Hair.
We have a remedy that has aided
to grow hair and prevented baldness

a strong statement It is, and we
mean it to be, and no one should
doubt it until they have put our
claims to an actual test.

Colors and Light.
White bas the greatest property of
reflecting light of any color and black
the least While white receives the
color it Immediately sends it away

Black absorbs light. Lay a white and
a black piece of cloth on the snow and
that under the white cloth will remain
as It is, while under the black one It
will melt This snggests a reason as
to why white garments are coolest for
summer wear. They do not absorb
the heat and light from the sun, but re
flect It off. In winter the dark ab
sorbs the light and accomplishes more

the common thing for winter nse. If

And the Question of Prolonging Life to
Its Utmost Limit.
Even the lengthening of a man's life
by a day may make death easier by
giving him the opportunity of soothing
a guilty conscience, of signing a will,
of redressing an Injustice, of healing a
breach of friendship the memory of
which might imbltter another life, of
saying farewell to a son or daughter
who had come in baste from a great
distance. Any one who bas seen death
beds knows bow anxieties of this sort
may darken the last hours and how
their removal may reconcile the suffer
er to death. It seems to us that this
talk of the right to die and the wrong
doing of doctors in seeking to prolong
a life that is hanging by a thread
springs from the unwholesome senti
mentalism and the Inevitable accom
paniment of selfishness which are

painful. Those whose lot it has been
to stand at many deathbeds know that
this is not the case. Sir William Osier
says that he has careful records of
about 600 deathbeds, studied particu
larly with reference to the modes of
dying and the sensations of the dying.
Of these ninety suffered bodily pain or
