' the main line branches oS to the
, southwestern tracks, blocking traffic
i until noon. No one was Injured. Sev
i eral of the cars were badly damaged.

', tated the detouring of the Rock Island

News from The Argus Santa Claus
brings the" welcome Information that
ne wui again uute care 01 me cuu- j
dren of Rock Island who have no 1
Santa. Causes of their own to . watch .
over their needs Christmas eve. Ac
cordingly, before many, days have '
passed, he will Issue his' call to Mr.
and Mrs. Goodfellow telling them
what he intends doing, how it is to !
be done and the help that he needs. J
If the past Is a criterion, the same :
Mr. and Mrs. Goodfellow will then j
arise to the occasion and the result '
will be hundreds of happy hearts in ,
the breasts of Rock Island's poor !
children on Christmas morning.
In past years, since The Argus San
ta Claus came into being, Miss Dina
Ramser, then police matron and char
ity worker, and Miss Margaret Giles,
visiting nurse, have had charge of the
I funds collected, of the buying of toys J
and Christmas presents and of the
distribution of the same. Miss Ram
ser Is now out of the city and it
was feared that someone else would
have to be secured to take her place,
but the lure of the work is such that
the noble little woman is coming back
to lend her efficient aid. It is doubtful
if two more efficient workers than
Miss Ramser and Miss Giles could be
secured and The Argus is immensely
pleased that they are to again be in
charge of The Argus Santa Claus
Miss Giles yesterday received a let
ter from Miss Ramser in which the
latter stated that she will make a
special trip to Rock Island in order
to discharge the duties which have
been hers in the past. The trip here
necessitates a sacrifice on her part,
but she feels that the good done will
more than repay her.

A polluted and impure condition of the blood causes irritation and In
flammation of the different mucous membranes of the body, and we call it
Catarrh. The early stages of the disease are characterized by such symp
toms as a tight, etuSy feeling in the nose, watery eyes, ringing noises In
the ears, irritation of the throat, and often hoarseness and difficult breathing.
If the trouble is not checked it invades the stomach and other portions of
the body and becomes a dangerous disorder. Antiseptic washes, sprays,
etc., are beneficial in removing accumulated mucus from the nose or throat,
but such treatment can never cure Catarrh. S. S. S. is the one real de
pendable remedy for Catarrh. This g-reat medicine cures the disease be
cause it purifies the blood and thus destroys its cause. S. S. 8. goes into
the circulation and removes the last trace of catarrhal matter, and then the
blood performs its work of nourishing the
membranes and tissues instead of depositing
impure matter into them to irritate and in-
