see everything bright, and speckless,
house clean, paint shining, clothes white
and spotless, dishes glistening. And this
is done by Fels-Naptha with half the
trouble and in less than half the time it
used to take. .
Cool or lukewarm water is the only
thing necessary to use with Fels-Naptha
Soap. You don't have to scrub or scour
to make dirt and grease disappear. You
don't have to boil clothes to get them
white and clean. Nor hard-rub them to
pieces on the washboard, either.

Current Too Strong. Suit for $18,
000 for the death of Almeda Mar
tin of Princeton, whom it is claimed
was killed by a volt from a live wire
while she was turning on a light in
her home, has been begun by E. F.
Martin, administrator in her estate,
against the Iowa & Illinois Railway
company, the Clinton interurban. Mrs.
Martin met death in a peculiar man
ner March 21, 1914. She went down
into the cellar at her home to turn on
the light. As she did so she fell to the
floor, having received a shock, which
her husband claims caused her death.
Mr. Martin claims that the interur
ban had contracted to furnish elec
tricity to the town of Princeton for
the purpose of lighting the streets
and for ubb in the homes as well. He
avers in his petition that the company
was permitted to charge the wires
with no more than 110 volts of elec
tricity. He declares that a few days
before March 31, this year, the ma
chinery was out of order and the
cjarge into the wires increased. He
claims that the company was notified
of this. He claims that when his wife
went into the basement she did not
know of her danger and was about to
turn on the light. W. M. Chamberlin
is his attorney and the petition was
filed in district court Saturday.
Cement Blocks Spring Surprise A
few days ago it was announced that
the cement blocks now being manufac
tured by the Cement Products com-
pany of Davenport exceeded the test
required by the new building ordi
nance by 50 per cent. This statement
was doubted by some who believed it
impossible to make blocks which
would stand one hundred pounds pres
sure when but forty-eight hours old.
In order to verify the teet the building
inspector has made a second test
marking blocks as they came from the
moulds and testing them at the end of
forty-eight hours steam curing. Four
blocks marked and tested showed an
average of 97,000 pounds pressure.
This shows what can be done with up-to-date
