City Attorney to Resign. Resigna-
titm of G- A- Shallberg as city attor- j
will be formally presented to I
j Mayor M. R. Carlson at an early date j
nnrt the s'pct nn nf a successor is a
matter that is now being given con-
slderation. The resolve to retire from
service of the city, was first presented
to the mayor before the Christmas
holidays, but Mr. Sha'.lberg did not
care to formally withdraw until cer
tain cases in which the city is con
cerned had been disposed of. Press of
his professional business, which has
been sacrificed to a certain extent in
the Interests of the city, is the one
and only reason for the action, says
Property Wanted for Parks. Notice
ot trial was posted in the county
court yesterday In the condemnation
proceedings by the city against the
properties of J. P. Bockentine, H. Dae
belliehn and the heirs of Dora Qoesli,
all located on Seventh street between
Twelfth and Fifteenth avenues and
abutting Stephens park on the east.
This action is taken In accordance
with terms of the Deere park donation
which stipulated that the city secure
control of these properties in the
scheme for the linking together of
Stephens and Deere parks by a bridge
over the ravine at this point. There
are residences on the three properties
which will be made a part and parcel
of the park plot. The case will be
heard at the next session of the county
court. Damages may amount to 5,000
Pedestrian Returns Home. Peter
Ploog, who ieft Moline Wednesday,
Jan. 23. to walk to Chicago in four
days, returned home at 1:30 Saturday
afternoon. He reached Chicago at 8
a. m. last Tuesday, between five and
six days being required for the trip.
Had Ploog made the trip In four days
a Moline manufacturer, he says, was
to have given him J100. Ploog says
he will make the trip again, this time
in company with Charles Peterson.
New Building for Deere. New build
ings to be erected by Deere & Co.
in East Moline during the coming sea
son herald a boom cf significance to
the development of that city into a
greater industrial center. Plans are
perfected for the erection of four fine
new factory buildings and their com
pietion will necessitate the addition of
at least 1,000 workmen to the manufac
turing force in the East Moline plants
of the Doere concern. Few commun
ities can anticipate an increase in pop-
uiaiion ana resources m one year 3
time from one source alone of such
a substantial nature. Bulk of the im
provements during 1913 will be cen
tered about enlargement of the Deere
Harvester plant, upon which $300,000
vas ppent in new buildings last year
alcne. This particular industry of the
Deere corporation has developed from
infancy to formidable proportions in
eu incredibly short time and demand
for its product, even in the face of
stern competition is heavy.

MiddJetown, Pa. "I had headache,
backache and such awful bearing down
pains that I could not be on my feet at
times and I had organic inflammation so
badly that I was not able to do my work.
1 could not get a good meal for my hus
band and one child. My neighbors said
they thought my suffering was terrible.
" My husband got tired of seeing me
suffer and one night went to the drug
store and got roe a bottle of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
told me I must take it. I can't tell you
all I suffered and I can't tell you all that
your medicine has done for me. I was
greatly benefited from the first and it
has made me a well woman. I can do
all my housework and even helped some
of my friends as well. I think it is a
wonderful help to all suffering women.
I have got several to take it after see
ing what it has done for me." Mrs.
Emma Espenshade, 219 East Main St,
The Pinkham record is a proud and hon
orable one. It is a record of constant
victory over the obstinate ills of woman
ills that deal out despair. It is an es
tablished fact that Lydia E. Pinkham's
', Vegetable Compound baa restored
health to thousands of such sufferm?
women. Why don't yoa try it if you
need each a medicine?

The county court has confirmed the
petition for a new sewer and water

trict, . action for which was commenc
ed nearly a year ago. The system
will take in a section running south
on Nineteenth street between Twelfth
and Fifteenth avenues and also por

will be received soon.
Moline Plow Buys Property. Pur
chase of th building and lot on the
southeast cornpr of Third avonuo and
Fifteenth street was consummated
yesterday by the Molino Plow com
pany. Though neither seller the
Sta'e Pavings Hank & Trust Co. - nor
bujvr would name the exa-t considera
tion involved, it is known that, tl-.
property was considered an $18,000
afset by the bank. The building
on the iot is three stories in height
and has a basement arranged for of;
fee rooms. It has a 20-foot frontage
on Third avenue and a depth of 80
feet on the street. Plans are being
made for remodeling of the building
and ultimately it will be used for
olllces Ly the purchasing and traffic
departments of the plow company .The
change will be made in a very slio'-l
ti.ue, present tenants moving to other
buildings to make room for the plow
force. The building was erected in

of The tracks the property has de
teriorated in value for mercantile pur
poses but it is ideal for the use to
which it will be put.

Housework is hard work without Geld
Dust; with it to save half your time and
labor, it's a joy and satisfaction.
Gold Dust cleans everything about the
house from cellar to attic and cleans .
it better and quicker than any other
product, device or method that was ever
invented. Millions of women have found
this out; we're talking to those who
haven't and are consequently doing
their work in a longer, harder way.
The use of Gold Dust will save your
time, spare your back and make your
home as spick and span as a new pin.
If you have never used Gold Dust,
either make a bee-line for your grocer's
at once or call him on the wire and
order a package. It will do all and
more than we claim for it.
Gold Dust is sold in 5c and large
packages. The greatest economy is in.
buying the large size.
Use Gold Dust for washing clothes and dishes,
scrubbing floors, cleaning woodwork, oilcloth,
slverware and tinware, polishing brasswork,
cleaning bathroom pipes, refrigerators, etc., soft
ening hard water and making the finest soft soap.
