against Charles G. Imhof restraining
the defendant from further engaging
in the painting and sign painting busi
ness In the city of Davenport.The plain
tiff, through Bollinger & Block, asked

the business in Davenport. This the
plaintiff alleges has been violated.
Damages of $1,000 are also asked.
No Light on Disappearance. The
result of the police investigation into
the probable death of Joseph A. Cos
grove, held at the police station, did
not clear up any of the mystery which
now surrounds the disappearance of
the young man. Miss Minnie Nebrich,
with whom Co &g rove bad been keeping
company and with whom he is suppos
ed to have had his last talk the
night of April 23, steadfastly denied
that they had Quarreled. Bhe said that

Contagious Blood Poison, as
Is an infectious blood taint which
cated from one person to another. Its virus is of a most insidious
nature, multiplying from an insignificant germ in the Wood until it
becomes a thorough systemic poison. So powerful and dangerous is
this terrible blood plague that no time should be lost in trying to drive
it from the system, it should not be temporized with, but should be
killed as one would a deadly serpent on the pathway. The first mani
festation of Contagious Blood Poison is usually a tiny sore or pimple,
but it rapidly spreads, and in a short time th entire body shows its
presence in the blood. The mouth and throat ulcerate, glands in the
groin swell, the hair begins to come out, copper-colored spots appear on
the body, and frequently running sores and ulcers break out on the flesh.
A condition of such serious nature requires proper treatment.
Not only must the disease be driven out, but the system which has
been weakened by the powerful poison must be built up, before health
can be restored. Thequeston of most importance therefore is what
medicine has proven by actual results its superiority as a blood purifier?
We claim this distinction for S. S. S. because of its successful record
for more than forty years.
S. S. S. cures Contagious Blood Poison by purifying the blood.
It goes into the circulation and removes the last trace of the infectious
virus, acts with fine tonic effect on the stomach, bowels, kidneys, and
other portions of the system, and thus makes a perfect as well as a
permanent cure. S. S. S. is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks,
each of which has a specific action on the system. Not a particle of
mineral or other harmful substance enters into its composition. S.S.S.
is perfectly safe for any one, and instead of upsetting the stomach, as
mineral medicines often do, it tones up this important member, and
makes digestion easy. Thousands have cured themselves of Conta
gious Blood Poison by the use of S. S. S., and if you will write and
request it we will send you, without charge, our Home Treatment
Book which will give you all necessary information for crushing out
the life of this serpent-like poison and curing yourself at home. X'e
will also give you free any medical advice you may wish. S. S. S. is
told at drug stores. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO, ATLANTA, CA.

HEART FOUND AT WORK
APART FROM THE BODY
Chicago, May 1. Chicago surgeons
now agree that the new science of
thanatology the science of transplant
ing functionating organs from a desd
animal to a living one Is not a specu
lative or a theoretic one. It is a science
which already has a data of actual
proofs, proving it is practicable.
Much interest was expressed in the
extract published from the paper on
thanatology by Dr. Roswell Park in
the current number of the Journal of
the American Medical association. Dr.
Park, who is now professor of surgery
in the University of Buffalo, is a form
er Chicago man, graduate of North
western University Medical college,
and a practitioner here for several
"Healthy kidneys, removed from a
human being, can be kept alive for at
least two months," said . Dr. William
E. Quine. "A kidney which had been
on ice for about two months was trans
planted in a dog recently and it
"You can cut a healthy heart out
of a dead person, connect the bis: ar
teries with tubes connected with a
fluid of the same temperature as the
blood, then place the heart in a warm
liquid, and It will beat automatically.
pumping the liquid for three or four
days. It will, in other words, keep
up its functions. That merely shows
that certain organs of the body are
really alive and in perfect working
order long after the so-called dissolu
tion takes place."
Skin grafting has been tried with
success on human beings. Dr. John
B. Murphy is authority for the state
ment that not only has healthy, liv
ing epidermis been taken from a body
just deceased and transplanted suc
cessfully on a living human being but
that the transplantation of skin from
an amputated limb to a person in need
of a patch of epidermis frequently has
been accomplished. The latter is but
a step removed from the transplanta
tion of skin from one person to an
other. "Thanatology is not here as yet,"
said Dr. Murpby, '"and it will be quite
a long time till we'll know how to
transplant human organs. But it is
coming. There is no reason for not
believing that a man who has been
suffering from Bright's disease can
be snatched from the grave by giving
him a new and healthy aet of kidneys."
Transplanting of organs of animals
has been successfully accomplished a
great number of times," said Dr. L. L.
McArthur. "A leg has been cut off
one dog and transplanted on another,
and it became a perfectly good walk
ing and running leg. Kidneys have
been transplanted in dogs with success
and have become functionating organs.
A man came to me last winter and
wanted to have jne graft an arm on
him, but I couldn't find a suitable
member. None of the bodies brought
into the hospital where the man
waited proved to have an arm that
suited the patient, and no one volun
teered to sell an arm."

ciation of his -work in the interest of

against Rene DePrader, dairyman,
whose milk fell below the 3 per cent
butter fat standard required by etate
law, as shown in a recent test of sam
ples collected from all wagons. Health
Inspector Kemmerling, who filed the
Information April 25, recommended
that the minimum fine, required by
law, be levied. DePrader explained to
the court that he had no knowledge
that milk vended by him was below
standard. Milk which he has offered
for 6ale has been generally satisfac
tory, and his customers, it is said,
have had no occasion for complaint.
Cleaning Up the City. Again atten

that beginning today regular collec

THE GRAY HAIRS
A Few Applications of a Simple
Remedy Will Bring Back
the Natural Color.
'Tail out one gray hair and a dozen
will take its place is an old saying,
which is, to a great extent, true, if no
steps are taken to stop the cause. When
gray bairs appear it is a sin that Na
ture needs assistance. It is Nature's
call for help. Gray hair, dull, lifeless
hair, or hair that is falling out, is not
necessarily a sign of advancing age, for
there are thousands of elderly people
with perfect heads of hair without a
sinprle streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, or when the
hair seems to be lifeless or dead, some
good, reliable hair-restoring treatment
should be resorted to at once. Special
ists say that one of the best prepara
tions to nse is the old-fashioned "sae
tea" which our grandparents used. The
best preparation of this kind is Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy, a prep
aration of domestic sage and sulphur,
scientifically compounded with later dis
covered hair tonics and stimulants, the
whole mixture being carefully balanced
and tested by experts.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is clean and
wholesome and perfectly harmless. It
refreshes dry, parched hair, removes
dandruff ana gradually restores faded
or gray hair to its natural color.
Don't delay another minute. Start
using Wyeth's Saga and Sulphur at
once and see what a difference a few
davs treatment will make in your hair.

public at fifty cents a bottle, and is

Martyrdom of Clara Barton
Los Angeles, April 30. More light
uponthe martyrdom suffered by Clara
Barton, founder of the Red Cross, as
the result of alleged political intrigue
as well as the social ambitions of
certain Washington women, which
forofd her from the presidency
ana lea to congressional investigation,
is shed in letters written by the great
war nurse to Trofessor C. S. Young of
Redondo Beach and given out by hiin
This posthumous answer of Miss
Barton to her detractors and a hint of
the heavy load of injustice she had en
dured for the sake of peace and the
good of the Red Cross, caused a tre
mendous Impression in the east and
pecially- in Washington.
The additional letters now made
public by Mr. Young tend further to il
lumine the subject and to accentuate
the patience she manifested under
When she had been Importuned to
speak to F'resident Taft about the can
didacy of a friend for a certain posi
tion she wrote:
"There has never been an occasion
nor a time when I have so missed my
old-time privilege of speaking a word
in behalf .of a friend. I never before
have so fully realized what a pleasure
that privilege had been to me through
half a century.
"It is a change for i.ie to know that
my only help must lie in the strictest
silence; an expressed wish, if known,
v.'ould be fatal not, perhaps, with
President Taft personally, for I am of
small importance to him, if he ever
knew but from the advice he would
be sure to receive from those he does
know. So I wait and hope."

In her home at Oxford, Mas3., she

"There were but two countries
where the Red Cross society did not
exist, one was China and the other
Mexico. I did not want to go to China,
but did want tovgo to Mexico, and ful-
j ly intended to go.
"My friends finally dissuaded mc,
and perhaps it was for the best, for if
I had gone I would probably not have
been alive now."
One of the earliest letters written by
Miss Rarton to Mr. Young bearing up
on the Red Cross situation and the
state of mind this occasioned was
written in July, 1907, and was as fol
lows: "I wonder if I have ever said a word
in reply to your comforting letter of
May. If I have or have not said any
thing on paper, I have in my heart an
