THE J. 8. E.
The New Road Which Is Bnlldlnx
lato Rock Island coming Without
And this is the way the Peoria Journal
puts the facts concerning the construc
tion of the Jacksonville & Southeastern
road toward Rock Island:
There is a ripple of excitement in rail
road circles over the announcement that
the J. S. E. railroad are about to ex
tend tbeir lines by building a branch road
from , Havana to Rock Island. It hag
been known for some time that the above
road was considering the matter, but it
was not expected that anything definite
would be done in the matter so soon.
There was a public meeting held in Can
ton Wednesday evening when it was de
termined that in order to secure the en
trance of the proposed line into that city,
the right of way from Havana to and
through Canton be given tie
railroad company by the city
the city bearing the txpense of
obtaiuin? such rigbt of way. The
above offer was telegraphed the railroad
officials at Jacksonville, and was by them
accepted, thus settling the matter so far
as Canton is concerned. Delegates from
Lewistown, Cuba. Monmouth and A.ledo
haye visited Jacksonville and used their
best endeavor with the officials of the
road to secure the entrance of the new
line into their respective cities. Gales
burg has also been begotiatiDg for the
road and would like to head off Mon
mouth in the matter of securing the
road, for if the line touches at Mon
mouth, aud it is quite likely that it will,
Galesburg will be left out in the cold so
far as the new line is concerned.
A special meeting of Canton's city
council was held the other evening and
the members passed an ordinance grant
ing the J. & S. E. the right of way
through the city. . Canton men have a'so
been instrumental in securing the right
of way for the road from Havana to Can
ton. Io this they were ably assisted by
the farmers of the townships through
which the line is to go. The Canton men
also donate depot grounJs.
From Canton the road will come to
Rock Isiand either through Monmouth or
Galesburg. As yet the officials are unde
cided which citv to strike.

Catarrh ICan'r be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you baye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

Mr. R. S-McCullough's Story-He was
Discouraged Without Hope The
Result of His Treatment With Scott
"I was in a very serious condition when
I visited tbe Institute," said Mr. Robert
S. McCullough, who is employed with tbe
Davenport Mills Co. "My trouble was
catarrh and has existed for over four
years. At first my head, nose, ears and
throat became all stopped so I could
hardly breathe or swallow. My appetite
failed, food distressed my stomach and
crave me no strength. I lost flesh rapidly.
I was not able to sleep half tbe time, and
was more tired and miserable when I
would get up than before I went to bed. I
had a constant discharge of y ello ir .strin gy,
mucous from my nose and throat. My
throat became sore and voice husky, and
roaring and buzzing noises in my ears,
with severe pains in my chest and sweat
ing at night. After the second treat
ment I found more benefit than I bad by
three previous years doctoring in the city
and I now feel like a new man." Mr. Mc
Cullough has lived in tbe city for 20
years and worked for the Davenport
Mills company for nine years, and will
g'adly talk with anyone similarly
