It is not at all difficult to devine the
drift of the saw mill business along
the Mississippi, says the Lumberman.
Annually the number of mills between
Minneapolis and St. Louis is likely to des
crease. Three mills have gone out of
commission this year the mills of the
Davenport lumber company and J. S.
Eeator fc Sons at Moline and one at
Dubuque. When a down river mill is
burned it is not rebuilt. There may be
no decrease in the number of mills oper
ated for the next two or threee years
this will depend entirely upon how fortu
nate the owners of the mills are. But it
can be put down as a certain
ty that no new mills will be
built. But north of Minneapolis the
situation is different; as good a mill has
been built, has just teen started at Little
Falls. Another one which stood idle for
a cumber of years wa; started up last
year. The two mills at St. Cloud will
run to their full capacity for the first
time in years, and the mills at Elk River
and Sauk Rapids, will beat their own rec
ords this season. The mill at Gull River,
which has stood idle for a year or two, is
to cut 30,000,000 or more, and next year
will be located at Brainard and increased
capacity. The probability now is that
two or more mills will be built at Minne
apolis next year. The tendency of the
mill men is to get nearer to the stump.
This they are doing as rapidly as circum
stances will permit. The railroads are
surely making a revolution in the lumber
The friends of the government reser
voir system, on the head waters of the
upper Mississippi, have complained since
the dams were built that they have never
yet been filled. This condition has been
offered in explanation of why the vol
ume of water maiutained in midsummer
was not as great as had been expected.
There should be no occasion for com
plaint on this score this year. It is en
tirely probable that there will be a good
stage of water in the Mississippi and its
tributaries during the greater part of the
season. This means that the logs will be
got into the booms and sorting places
early, and that the handling of logs and
lumber in the Mississippi below tbc
mouth of the St. Cro:x will go forward
with less interruption than has been the
case in a number of years. To this re
sult the government reservoir will un
doubtedly contribute something. But to
make the system as efficient as its
friends have promised means the exten
sion of the government reservoirs to the
tributary streams in Minnesota and Wis

Will be Where to Vote.
Tomorrow occurs the annual district
school election of two directors; Dr. C.
C. Carter and Capt. C. W. Durham
standing for re election. That these gen
tlemen should be re-elected, and that there
is no well founded opposition to either
is the opinion of all who have watched
their courte as members of the board of
education, and no one who is moved by a
sense of fairness and appreciation of
faithful service will by his vote tomor
row repudiate the records of such direc
tors. Ntver before in the history of the
Rock Island schools have there been any
members of the board who have rendered
the service that these gentlemen have.
During their term of office fuliy flOO.OOl1
have been expended in school buildings
of the most modern design and all pro
vided with the best possible devices as to
safety, beat and ventilation, and not
withstanding these improvements of so
important a nature, the school debt has
been kept remarkably low, while Direc
tors Carter and Durham have given the
subject of school improvements their
personal attention and have at the loss of
valuable time and money visited Chicago
and other places in the interests of our
public schools and with a view of wit
nessing the practical workings of the
various systems. of heat and ventilation
to the end that our schools might have
the beet. Tbey have woiked faithfully
for the common interests of our public
schools, and to fail to re-elect them would
be a most unfortunate acknowledgement
of the failure of the friends of our public
schools to appeciate faithful and efficient
service. The Abgub as a friend of our
public schools, confidently hopes for the
re-election of Directors Carter and Dur

Catarrn Can't 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 have to tnke 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 tw ncreriients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

The Father of Many Ills.
Constipation leads to a multitude of
physical troubles. It is generally the
result of carlessness or indifference to the
simplest rule of health. Eugene McKay,
of Brantford, Ont writes:
"I had for several years been a suffer
er from constipation, had taken a great
many different remebies, some of which
did me good for a time but only for a time
then my trouble came back worse than
ever. 1 was nduced by a friend, whom
Brandreth's Pills had benefited, to try
them. Took two each night for a wees,
then one tvary nicht for about six weots
Since thet time I have not experienced
tne slightest difflsulty whatever, and my
bowels move regularly every day. I
believe firmly that for sluggishness of the
bowels and biliousness Brandetb's Pills
are far superior to any other."
