Near Another Stabbing Quick In
tervention of the bar tender id the
Atlantic hotel saloon Saturday pre
rented what might have been another
fatal stabbing affray in the city. The
result of the affair was the arrest of
Frank Keeler on a charge of assault.
He paid a fine of $25 and costs in
the police court. It appears that Kee
ler, who was drinking In the saloon,
was under the influence of liquor. He
objected to the presenc of Tom
Busey in the saloon o-ing to the tat
ter's color. The objection became
stronger than mere words and the at
tack on the colored man followed. It
was claimed that Keeler had rawn a
knife and would have attacked Busey

houBe oouducted by Mrs. M. Uj.ick,

the room of Mrs. BHick's father, M.
Cormley. tiormley says that the ex
plosion took place when fie made prep
arations to wash. The damage done

Will Keep Market Open. Moline's
municipal market continues to be a
lire proposition and its permanency Is
assured. There were many citizens
who believed that with the passing of
summer and the exhausting of green
vegetables and fruit, the city market
I would pass out of existence for lack of
patronage on the part of the consumer
and lack of Interest from the stand
point of the producer. But Buch Is not
the case. More than 300 Moaners
passed through the market Saturday
I with baskets on their arms, and they
were able to make some choice selec
tions. While the number of growers
on hand with goods from the farm Is
not so numerous as during the sum
mer, such a circumstance is not to be
wondered at. Perhaps the most faith
ful devotee of the enterprise is Charles
Zahn, who has been bringing a load of
produce and vegetables from his Rock
river farm nearly every market day
since the place was opened in June.
Most of the offerings at this time are
of the bulkier late season vegetable.
such as potatoes, onions annd cab
bages. Mr. Zahn reports that he has
8,000 heads of cabbage that he intends
to bring into the Moline market during
the fall season. Tire market-master is
receiving many advance orders for
these goods. It is the intention of the
commissioners, who are more than sat-
I Ufied with the experiment as it has
been worked out in Moline, to continue
operation of the market all year round,
Payroll Grows. Siivis shop payroll
for the month of September has just
been compiled and it shows that $72,
000 will go to Rock Island employes
within a short time for services ren
dered in the month just ended. The
railroad plant has been operating full !
force of late and every available man
has been placed at work iu order that
the plant may come near to meeting
demands for rolling stock. The pay
roll is in the neighborhood of $4,000
increase over those of months immedi
ately preceding. That the October
payroll will exceed the mark set by
September, is the etatement of shop
officials. Men are being kept at work
on Saturday afternoons, a thing which
has been unthought of for months un
til last Saturday. The additional in
crease for the force of men who work I
the extra half days will bring the labor '
expenditures for the month much high
er than during September.

The Liquor Habit
Is a Nerve Disease
and Can Be Cured
mammm hmmi raaMMMMaanBH
Don't ABUSE or UPBRAID the man who drinks to
excess! His own conscience doe that daily, hourly.
He to a SICK MAN. He has the alcoholic nerve cell
disease. The time when he could help HIMSELF is
long past. But YOU can HELP him! WE CAN
CURB HIM! n
What Is the Liquor Disease?
It is a condition where the nerve cells have become trained te
need alcohol. And unless they are fed with alcohol they rebel
and refuse to control the muscles and brain cells.
The "craving" for drink is not the disease. It is simply the
symptom of the disease, just as a cough is a symptom and not, ia
itself, a disease.
When the disease Is cured the craving and appetite for drink
disappear, just as a cough disappears when the cause of the
cough is removed.
The Keeley Remedies Cure
Dr. Leslie E. Keeley discovered first the real nature of trie
liquor disease, and next a remedy that would cure it.
The Keeley remedies are simply nerve tonics that remove the
artificial alcohol appetite of the nerve cells and restore them to
their healthy, normal condition. k
When this is done the man has no longer any need or desire
In the last 32 years 400,000 men have been cured of the liquor
disease by the Keeley method.
The effect of the Keeley remedies is to absolutely destroy the
craving and appetite for drink. The man who takes the treat
ment is no longer called on to fight an appetite. Because the
desire and necessity for alcohol are completely gone.
We also cure Opium, Morphine and other drug addictions.
The drug is withdrawn gradually and there is no shock, col
lapse, prostration or sickness. Full particulars in plain, sealed
envelope on request.
We manufacture and sell Home Remedies which cure tbe
Tobacco Habit and many forms of nervous troubles.
