NEW LIGHTS ARE NEEDED
Informal Seaalon of City Commission
It Held In Mayor's Office
A change from the present lighting
system in vogue la Rock Island Is
more than a mere possibility of the
future as the result of a discussion
among the commissioners In Informal
session this morning at the mayor's
office. The question arose when the
need for a new street light or two
was laid before the council by Com
missioner R. F- Reynolds. Commis-
petltion for Injunction. The dismissal
of the suit will obviate this expense.
No action was taken yesterday and
this morning A. J. Beverlin, local man
ager of the company, was called into
the informal session and various mat
ters taken up with him. Little was
accomplished, however. The city
sought to have a free phone installed
at the library. It was refused. An
effort was made to get the company
to supply a cable from its office to
Twenty-fourth street for the use of the
police department. Mr. Beverlln re
fused and various other requests that
were made and which called for con
cessions additional to those embodied
in the ordinance, were refused. Mr
Beverlln stated that his company in
tends to live up absolutely to the
terms of its ordinance, fearing to
cverstep lest such action should fur
nish reason for annullment of its fran
chise. No agreement was reached
with Mr. Beverlln and the matter was
dropped for the time.

lowed and current bills amounting to
about $r..5f0. were ordered paid from
the money 'in the treasury of the city.
This money was for the most part due
to the collection of the semi-annual

Owing to the failure of the day men

to throw any light on the mysterious

would lose her reason.

The only way to cure rheumatism
is to remove the cause. The new dis

It neutralizes and dissolves all the
poisonous substances and uric acid
that lodge in the joints and muscles,
to scratch and irritate and cause
rheumatism, and cleans out and
strengthens the stopped-up, inactive
kidneys, so they filter all the poison
from the blood, and drive it on and
out of the system.
Croxone is the most wonderful med

rheumatism, kidney troubles, and blad
